Machine won't turn on when I push the button

The machine will not turn on when I push the start button. It's a digital mashine about four years old. I live in Medellin, Colombia and I don't have an instruction manual. Is their a reset button or built in circuit breaker or something? If not, where do I start looking for the problem. All the repairshops here are thieves so please help me figure this out.

Thanks,
Ron Graham

I had the same problem with a Fisher & Paykel Smartdrive 701. First try disconnecting power lead for 5 mins, then plug back in and try again. It sometimes resets itself. Second try is the fuse. Take off the control panel cover (2 screws), open the blue control box (the larger one still mounted in the machine) and you'll see a simple fuse. If you're lucky this is a very cheap fix and hopefully didn't blow for a reason.
If the fuse is OK then it will be the main circuit board blown in the smaller blue box that comes off with the control panel. F&P don't sell component parts for these like a simple blown micro-switch, and a new board is $200+ labour to fit.(5 mins)
Great washing machine but my boards only last 4 years between replacements. Have now bought their new Aquasmart machine.
Good luck.
Eddie.

Turn the electricity back on. choose for example pumping program or centrifugeprogram. After that the machine should work.

Comunication error


Hi,

At first turn the machine off, and then press the start button, reverse button and auto lock button at the same time.

-Turn the machine back on while still pushing the three buttons. After the machine has powered on, release the buttons.

-Press the + sign at the bottom of the screen, continue pressing each + sign as it appears. The machine will display a "Test Complete" message, turn off your machine.

-Wait 5 to 10 seconds before powering your machine back on, your machine will run through a diagnostic test and repair any issues it finds.

If this doesn't work;

Have you set up communication is to the "COM Port" designation within Customizer/Digitizer.

Go to >ScanCard >Communication Settings > choose the COM Port you want to use (find out what COM port the cable's using by going to your Start/task Bar in Windows>Control Panel >System >Hardware >Device Manager >Ports (COM & LPT).
There, you should be able to see what port your cable's using.

Hope this helps

I turn on the mashine programme wool and turned it on but my little one pressed the buttons after it and now there is a key on the display, the button "Start" is flashing but when I press it it...


Your machine has (quite correctly) operated it's child safety lock.

Your manual should tell you how to re-set it, however, you will almost certainly find that unplugging from the mains (Not just powering off on the button, as some door locks have a sneak circuit, even when the power is turned off at the button) and leaving the machine undisturbed for a full 20 minutes will allow a reset, the door lock will disengage and you should be able to start the program again as you would normally

Saeco vienna saying brewunit blocked !


Hi There is a test mode for the Digital and we can see if you have a bad power board. Turn the machine off in back. Push and hold the small coffee button and the menu button (top left) at the same time and while you are holding the buttons turn the machine on. Release the buttons and you should have numbers in the display. If you can push the bottom left button and the machine makes a sound like the motor is moving, turn it off and then back on. If you don't get the message now you should really clean and lube your brew unit.
