START/RESET LIGHT STAYS CONTINUOUSLY ON

This light will not shut off unless the door is fully shut. Is this normal for its operation? It seems to me like you should be able to reset the machine if you are not intending to wash dishes.

This is normal. The door latch has safety switch that will not let the machine do ANYTHING unless door is latched. If you need to do maintenance, then you can pry with a screwdriver, or possibly tape the switch so the machine can still run

The light in my freezer stays on when the door is closed.


I am curious how you know it is on unless you get inside. Some have magnet switches that will not cycle until the gasket seals.

Red stand by light blinking continuously black screen


It cannot be reset fully unless it comes on and stays on (the model you have listed here.)

That set should have a blink error code--watch the red power light to see if blinking in a number sequence like 7blinks pause and repeats over and over.

It is possible that the door switch has failed as the bulb is ON even when the door is shut . This indicates that the SWITCH is not cutt off and so the program controller will not allow the module to go forward or work. It is needed that you start from this point to use a multimeter to check the switch/ poles contact to confirm.

Oil light comes on at first starting shut off engine and re start and light i s off


I don't think there is anything to worry about, unless the light stays on. Think of the light as an oil pressure guage. When you first start the engine the oil pressure is very low, so the light Will be on. When the oil pressure reaches normal operating level, or a safe oil pressure, then the light will go off.

Dishwasher won't run. Normal light and cancel light flashing cont


Hi,


The door latch pulls the door tightly closed to prevent water leakage around the door. It is also designed to prevent operation while the door is open. The door latch works in concert with the door switch to ensure that the door is tightly closed and latched.The door switch is a separate part from the door latch and is found inside the cabinet. The switch is off when the door is open. Depressing the switch closes the circuit and enables dishwasher operation. Closing the door does not depress the switch all the way. Only when the door is closed and latched, does the door fully depress the switch.

If the door latch is not properly aligned it may not pull the door tightly closed and the door switch will not be fully depressed. Unless the switch is fully depressed the dishwasher will not operate. It is a simple matter to determine whether the door latch is the problem. Simply open the door, close the latch and select a cycle and depress the switch. Note that if the test is successful, with the door open, the dishwasher will operate and water may spray out. Make sure to first remove all tools from inside the dishwasher. Do not reach inside the dishwasher during the test. Now, inspect the cabinet where the door makes contact with it and locate the door switch. It may have a protruding button or spike or more likely it is a hole with a piece of metal or plastic inside it. You must fully depress that switch. If the switch is recessed, then use a non-conductive object, such as a wooden pencil, to depress the switch.

Thank you !!

Door ajar light stays lit when all doors are shut 2005 GMC Canyon


Hi,
This seems that either of the door switches is/are faulty. Try pushing the switches fully on each plunger switch on each door individually, keeping the other doors closed while you do. See if one of them causes the light to go out. If you do find one turns the light off, it's an adjustment problem with the plunger switch. May still need to be replaced if it won't depress enough with the door closing to turn off.Let us know if you were looking for something more else please accept the suggestion.
Thank You for contacting Fixya.com

1998 escort zx2 dome light stays on when switch is set for door; all other indicators, chime for key in ignition etc seem OK. Light works normally in switch on and off positions.


It should stay on for about 30 seconds and go off. Otherwise, the car is 11 years old, so find a switch position which does not drain the battery.

Remove the center grill of the top grill and shut the power off and back on, the lights should reset

When the lights are working open the Ref door then close the freezer drawer, watching to see if the light in the freezer shuts off. It should shut off when the freezer is about 1" from closing. If it stays on until the door is fully closed then there is a problem with the light switch in the freezer.

Normally when you leave the doors open until the lights shut off, it should reset when both doors are closed

Door won't fully latch, light stays on, dryer won't function


There is typically a small plastic piece that catches the door and keeps it latched. The door has the male side and the frame of the dryer has the female side.

Either the male part on the door has broken off (or bent) or the the female part on the frame has broken. Replace this part and you'll be back in business. It is typically called a door latch and it comes with both the male and female parts.

Here is a picture
of a typical one.
