Won't stay up unless you hold button down and won't go down unless unplug!!

My hood is a couple of years old and just started not staying up unless you hold one of the 4 speed's button's down. It will only stop and operate on speed 1 but at least it works. To put is down you must unplug it and ten plug it back in, then it goes down. If you leave it pluged in it will go up and down all by itself every so often.

I have a rheem fury 50gal gas water heater that will not stay on. I have replaced the thermo couple, it did lite but then went out.


I would like to know how old this heater is. This information can be found on either model or serial numbers.It won't appear obvious but last six numbers will tell you. You have already changed thermo-couple so I would check to see that it's properly centered in pilot flame.When you light it hold pilot button down for two-three mins.while watching thermo-couple.It should be a nice cherry red. If it is and pilot goes out after you release button then you either have another bad thermo-couple or gas valve is bad.If it does not get cherry red at least on tip then you need to reposition thermo-couple and try again. If gas valve is bad and heater is less then six years old valve will be covered under warrenty,however labor won't typically be covered unless you have extened service contract.Hope this helps.Thanks.

Dryer won't stay on


The motor centrifugal switch is not switching from the start winding to the run winding. The switch should stay in the run winding when the motor picks up speed unless power to the motor is interrupted or cut off. The switch is replaceable on most dryer models but sometimes it is an integral or built-in part of the dryer motor and failure of the switch requires the replacement of the motor. Indicate the exact model number of the dryer for more accurate troubleshooting and repair advice.

The incline will go up, but will not go back down. I have had this trouble since I bought it, and should have just returned it, but I have had it for several years now. I called for tech support a few...


Press down the stop and speed up button. Hold these buttons down and insert the safety key then release all. The screen should be different. Press stop once and hit the elevation up or down button. These are general direction. If you look under the hood of the machine, there is a trouble shooting guide. It will have the exact calibratiing proceedures.

Dryer button will not stay down. When you let go of the dryer button it stops. If I were to stand there and hold the button down it would stay one. While on it clicks


There is a centrifical switch in the motor that will only close once the motor is up to speed, the start button you push energises the starter winding, and once the motor is up to speed the run windings are energised by the centrifical switch.
The switch is not hard to replace but you will need the correct one, take the old one with you unless you'v got the complete model number from the motor.

most likely the evenheat board is bad, but it could be the motor relay, get under the console and check the trouble shooting wiring diagram. there are several checks you can do to narrow it down.

Speed control on fan


It means that the filters on the hood need to be cleaned. You simply pop them out and can wash them in the dishwasher. Once clean, dry and replaced, you hold down the fan speed button (the second button from the left or " - " minus for more than five seconds.) When you first hit the button the A will appear, hold the button when the letter disappears, the timer has been reset until time for the next cleaning. The microprocessor in the system will flash every 30 hours of operation.
