Machine shuts down and flashes F 06

Is there a way to get a copy of what the codes mean because there looks to be a lot of people having a lot of problems with the HE3t?

"F06" is a Motor Speed error code. The following link explains:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r714929-f06_error_whirlpool_duet_kenmore_elite

Now BEFORE you assume you have a component failure, the manufacturer recommends unplugging the washer for at least 30 minutes to reset the computer. In many cases this is all it takes to clear common "glitches" in the system. If the error reappears, follow the advice in the link by first checking all your connections on the Motor Control Unit (MCU) and Drive Motor. Then take resistance checks of your motor windings. The link gives you all this information.

To answer your initial question, there should be a tech sheet included with your washer that explains all the error codes and how to troubleshoot them. The manufacturer places this inside the washer behind the lower panel under the door. It will be located either on the back of the panel, or on the interior wall of the case. I hope you find this information helpful. Let me know if you require additional assistance.

PS If you locate your tech sheet, it is recommended that you leave it inside the appliance so you know where it is. The most common thing that consumers do is remove the tech sheet for safe keeping, then forget where it is.

I got code 3c00 on a konica c25 how do i reset this code its lock up


YOU GOT THE BIG ONE!!!!!! Some one tried to copy MONEY on that machine. NOW you will need to get a Konica Minolta Representative out to remove a special chip that will be sent to Konica Minolta then to the SECRET SERVICE. IN the mean time ask the Konica Minolta tech if they have a loaner, your machine is down until the SECRET SERVICE determines what has happen. SORRY the Color copiers are so good these day that they have a small chip that looks for info on currency and shut the machine down. SORRY

Intertherm furnace model # MMHB-070ABHR-06 red light blinks two times


Number of flashes mean different things for diff models. The meanings of those flashes should be posted somewhere on the unit; usually inside front of the bottom service panel. Though you can't truly diagnose a problem by number of flashes they can give you an idea of where to look for a problem. There are a ton of videos and how-to's about furnaces on youtube by real service techs. Most modern furnaces have basically the same set-up and features so don't worry about your paticular brand; but of course that would be the best place to start looking. You could start here to familiarize yourself with your brand of furnace:

I have an AC unit with the model # PDH12K3SD-C the unit stops working and flashes an error cod = "06" anyone know what the error code means?


According to the Owner's Manual if the Error Code flashes "06" the O.D. coil Temperature > 175 Deg
F for 2 consecutive minutes. (Heat Pump models only).

The action taken by the unit is Alternate flash set point and error code. Shut unit down for 5 minutes, then try again 2 times, if fails the 3rd time, then shut down unit.:

All of this is can caused by several things:

• Dirty filters
• Dirty coil
• Fan motor failure
• Restricted air flow
• Improper refrigerant charge
• Restriction in refrigerant circuit

The dirty filters, dirty coil and restricted air flow you can troubleshoot and solve yourself. The reaming ones should be handled by a an authorized service technician.

Here's a link to your Owners Manual, that you can download and print for future reference.

Hope this helped to to troubleshoot and solve the problem . Please let me know. Thanks.
