I'm not sure what this means but I would suspect that the air filter is clogged..causing poor air flow.

My spa flips breaker at the 6 pm circulation. Why?

Does it trip on other programmed cycles? Or, do you only have the one circulation time? This one is odd, if it only trips during one of multiple cycles. It could happen this way: if you have two or more cycles programmed, and only the one 6:00 cycle has the option for the heater to come on, then you could have a bad heater element? But the situation would have to have the spa in economy mode. Because heater will work only when timed filter cycles are activated, and if a demand for heat is registered, the heater will come on,and in your case, breaker will trip. If in standard mode, the breaker will trip any time the spa comes on, when a demand for heat is registered, this is called "heat call" or call for heat. Good luck

Why is inside of cabinet wet after dry cycle?

Need to use rinse aid for proper drying. If using rinse aid, might have a bad heater. Run it through a cycle, open it half way through the dry cycle and touch the heater with a wet rag. Should sizzle if the heater is good.

Defrost Cycle on Fisher and paykel RF610

Malcolm, if you are indeed getting an F20 fault, this is a problem with the flapper heater. The flapper heater current is low.

First, Check the JST in-line connections for the flapper heater.
Second, Check the resistance of the heater. If open circuit, replace the heater.

Had problem with clean bilking light. I was able to reset with your help. But it keeps coming back after every cycle. Dishes are not drying as well. How can I fix this?

The flashing light indicates there is a heater issue caused by a failure of one or more of the following: (1) The heater. (2) Door switch. (3) Water high temperature limit switch. (4) Electronic control heater relay. (5) heater wire may have loosened from heater terminal and burned off. If the heater is of the round type, test this first.

My dishwasher seems to be locked up and needs to be reset. the clean led is constantly flashing. i had this trouble in the past, and the serviceman reset the dishwasher by using the touchpad on the front...

Control is programmed to
stop the current cycle and
not allow any further
cycles if it suspects a
faulty heater (no
temperature increase
detected in heated
intervals). Control blinks
the Clean LED 7 times in
repetitive fashion and
disables the Start/Resume
key until cleared.
Heater circuit problem:
■ Open in heater.
■ Open connection or
component in heater
■ Faulty heater drive
circuit on control.
Running Diagnostics clears the control and
allows it to operate again. If heating problem
is not corrected though, the control will stop
running again on next cycle. See below.
1. Unplug dishwasher or disconnect power.
2. Check all components and connections in
the water heating circuit or heat dry circuit.
■ Check resistance of heater.
■ Check resistances of all connections and
components between the control and
■ Check operation of heater and temperature
sensor in Diagnostics cycle.

Regrig blows breaker in when entering defrost cycle, what is ohm of defrost heater?

21 ohms for a heater is not bad. I think what is happening is when the heater gets power and starts to heat the heater shorts to ground. causing it to throw the breaker.

Luke warm water on sanitize cycle, why?

remove lower kick panel and check wire connections to heater. 2 wires go to heater terminals and a harness connector goes to temp sensor in middle of heat terminals. may be green ground connection on another term. use multimeter and check resistence on heater. during cycle heater will take time to heat.
