Question about Frigidaire FEQ332E Electric Dryer

1 Answer

Broken knob The main knob on the right broke while being turned. It sounds like a broken spring. It turns but not properly and can be moved side to side. Does the front panel come off and can I do this myself?

    It is the knob on the far right that sets the time and the dryer mode, the larger knob of the three.

You can take it off, but unplug first. Does this knob control the heat or turns it on? If it turns it on, this is a contact switch and can be replaced at a fairly low cost and you can do it yourself. Just match wire for wire. It sounds like it has come loose from the frame.

    This should be pretty easy to do. 15-30 minutes.

    You will not be replacing the whole unit. That knob is separate from the other 2. The lid comes off I believe on your unit by going in through the back. You should see some screws that attach it to the rest of the body. Most GE and Frigidaire products dissasemble the same. They have it neatly packaged and easy to get to for repairs. That is why we have stuck with them for nearly 30 years. They provide good service and are pretty reliable. Let me know when you get it fixed.

Recoil spring on craftsman profession 30 Ft cord reel

On the right side of the housing is a cover. In the center is a hex shaped knob. Hold the knob while removing the cover screws. Once the cover is loose release the spring pressure on the knob. Then you can gain access to the rewind assembly. To reinstall, start with 6 rotations of the knob to put the proper stress on the spring.

The actuator rod has a spring and block the returns the actuator to its normal position. Sounds like one of the three parts are broke. If this is a tilt steering column there is a two piece actuator rod. I am in the process of replacing the upper actuator rod, the pin that connects it to the lower actuator broke off. Never had any ignition problems, one day it just won't turn off due to broken actuator rod. Hope this helps you.

The heater in my 2003 Dodge Ram 4x4 will not heat up or gets only luke warm & only on the passenger side....any suggestions?

Cold on drivers side and heat on passengers side, actuators working properly and blend doors are moving. Heatertreater is for piece of plastic on actuator motor. I moved blend door by hand after disconnecting actuator and works fine, both sides freezing when moved in opposite direction.

I opened teh door and thought i felt something hit

Murray, It sounds like one of the door springs has broken and that is why the door seems heavier and opens with much more force.

You'll want to at least make a temporary repair and order a new replacment spring to get your dishwasher working like it should and so it's safer too.

You can check to see which side of the dishwasher the spring broke, by locking the door shut (with the cycle set to "off"). Now remove the lower access panel, beneath the main dishwasher door. There are a couple of screws near the top corner edges of the panel, just under the main door and a couple more on the toe kick near the very bottom.

Once you've got the lower access panel off, you'll be able to see the two door springs, (there is one on each side). Of course, the broken one might have fallen off the spring notches, so look around and you should see it.

With the door still closed and locked, you can remove the broken spring and see if it's just the hook end that broke. If that's the case, you can reform the end hook using a couple pairs of pliers and reinstall the spring on the door and frame mounting points. You'll have to use pliers to stretch the spring slightly to get it on the other mounting point, once you've got one end on a mounting point. If the spring broke off more than 3 coils, you'll need to replace it with a new one.

You can find a replacement by using and putting in your model number to locate a line drawing and parts listing for your particular model. You can also order a new one from them, or use the part number to get one locally, if you wish.

Once you've got the spring back on the door and cabinet mount points, you can unlock the door and gently lower the door to see if everything is working properly. Once you've opened and closed the door several times, you can reinstall the lower access panel and you're back in business.

I hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

When we put the dials all the way up the freezer freezes up and the fridge gets warm We just moved it a week ago

Most likely the vibration of the move has caused:

- your defroster timer has failed or is stuck
- your defroster heater element has failed.

On most fridges, there is a little timer knob, which is the defroster timer, located at the bottom front behind the front kick panel.

If you rotate the timer by hand, you should hear a click. This should turn off the compressor and turn on the defroster heater. The heater should make some hissing/scorching sounds, plus the sound of water draining out.

The timer, if functional, should then turn the defroster off, and turn the fridge back on after a half-hour or so.

Since this part is typically on the bottom of the unit, maybe the part or it's wiring got broken by the mover with the fridge dolly. Or else the vibration of the move broke the heater element or caused a wire connection to come loose.
