Usually means water supply failure. Do you have an ice maker on the fridge that you are not using because the water line is not hooked up to it or is turned off?

Hi I have a Hotpoint fdw80 witch is displaying an error code AL10. Please can you tell me what this means so I can decide a course of action. Many Thank's Amanda


I found these error codes for the hotpoint fdw80

AL01 - Anti flood switch operated
AL02 - Valve or connections
AL03 - Time out - drain
AL04 - Thermistor (module)
AL05 - Circulation pump
AL06 - Time out - fill
AL07 - Not used
AL08 - Time out - heat
AL09 - Software recogntion error
AL10 - Heating circuit
AL99 - Communications error - connectors, cables etc.
H20 - Time out - fill (taps)

Now looking at AL10 error. Most often it is the heater element which is not effective due to scale formation. Make a solution of white vinegar and water (50:50) pour it onto the base of the dishwasher. Leave overnight and run dishwasher as normal. Somehow the vineger has to reach the heating element which is an inline heater. I am assuming normally you would use the hotwater connection from the kitchen tap.

If this does not help - depends how soon into the cycle you get the error you will have to replace the heater. I think it would look like this.

My refridgerator is making a buzzing sound with a click at the end every 2-3 minutes. The buzzing lasts about 5-7 seconds with a single clock at the end. When this sound is made the lights in the fridge...


Possible this can be a faulty thermostat sensor action tripping the relay which is clicking. You must remove and check the backside relay if the fridge is old for a wearing off.
Also a fault in the circuit of the auto defrost can cause the compressor to shut and start.
Since the fridge works well the fault can be related only to a erratic connection or failing component.

My fridge trips the breaker when you try to turn it on


I have a couple of things for you to check or rule out. Today, a refrigerator is required by electrical code to be connected to a dedicated, 15 amp outlet because the newer fridges are more efficient and use less than 12 amps. Not long ago, a dedicated 20 amp outlet was required because the older fridges were rated to use 12 amps or more (but less than 16 amps) and needed the larger size circuit. A 20 amp circuit breaker or fuse should not open for any standard residential fridge under normal operating conditions. A 15 amp circuit breaker or fuse _MAY_ open if an older fridge (needs 12 amps of more) is connected. Make sure that if a circuit is opening at the fuse or breaker, it is not because there are several appliances or devices in use and on the same circuit as the fridge.

The same holds true for "ground fault" and "arc fault" type circuits. If an older fridge is connected to such a circuit - nuisance tripping may result. Most newer fridges however shouldn't cause a problem on these circuits. Ground fault circuits have a "test" button on the circuit breaker or, "test" and "reset" buttons on an outlet providing this protection. Arc fault circuit protection is available only in circuit breakers (as of this time - but may become available as outlets some time in the future).

If you need to to try to isolate the problem on a 20 amp circuit, disconnect all other appliances on the other 20 amp circuits in the kitchen and dining room, then see if the fridge stays running. Alternatively, you could use a heavy duty extension cord to connect the fridge to a known isolated 20 amp circuit to see if the fridge runs. This is meant only to troubleshoot - the fridge should not be left connected via extension cord for normal operation.

If you still have tripping, you might need to have the fridge professionally serviced, as a ground fault could be a dangerous condition left unchecked.

Please rate this replay id found to be helpful - good luck!
