I have a whirlpool machine here now that I have just repaired. It sounds like the main control (like a small computer) has failed. Requires a new control unit.
Sorry but hope this answers your question

Best to get a new motor controller board Or a technician to look at it.

Light turns on by itself


Sometimes they just need to be reset
1 turn off power to switch (Circuit Breaker off)
2 wait 30 seconds
3 re - turn on power to switch again (Circuit Breaker on)
4 wait for lights to turn on by themselves ( about 15 seconds after power is turned back on)
should be OK after this remember to not enter the beam after power is turned on ...... (see #4 above) as this would make switch beam super sensitive. Hope this helps

Hi, my HP Pavillion a1240n won't start up... the wall plugs work and the power supply is plugged in but no lights are showing. I've also been flipping the switch beside the power supply at the back, and...


There are only certain items that will not power up a machine. 1. The power supply itself could be gone. 2. Check your ram. 3. Your hard drive. In most cases it is the power supply. Take out the power supply from the machine and plug it in to a wall socket. If it starts that it is not the power supply. If it doesn't start replace the power supply.

Power Supply Types

There are two basic types of power supplies. There are AT power supplies, which are older and in older computers, and ATX power supplies, which you will find in virtually every new computer you can buy.

There are two fundamental differences between AT and ATX power supplies. First, the switch mechanism is different. AT power supplies use a normal on-off switch, which directly turns the power supply on or off.

ATX power supplies use a momentary switch which does not directly control the power. Instead, the switch signals the motherboard, which performs one of three actions:

  • If the computer is off, the power supply is turned on (which turns the computer on)
  • If the computer is on, the computer goes into power-saving mode (standby)
  • If the switch is held for more than 4 seconds, the power is cut and the computer turns off.
Because of this difference, ATX power supplies are better for projects that require the second power supply to turn on automatically when the computer is turned on.

The second difference is in the motherboard connector: AT power supplies provide two 6-pin connectors (figure 1), which are easy to insert backwards. The ATX connector is a single 20-pin connector that only plugs in one way (figure 2).

Figures 1 and 2: The difference between AT (left) and ATX (right) motherboard connectors.
Both power supplies provide two types connectors for plugging devices into. These connectors are called Molex connectors, and they come in two sizes (see figure 3 and 4). A power supply will generally have a few of each size.
2psfig3small.jpg 2psfig4small.jpg
Figures 3 and 4: Large (left) and small (right) Molex connectors.
There is no difference between the two sizes other than the size itself. Both sizes provide the same amount of power to whatever device is plugged into it (12V and 5V). The small Molex connectors are generally used only for floppy drives. Large Molex connectors power hard drives, CD/DVD drives, and many fans and lights as well.

Note: You can purchase large and small Y-adapters if you run out of Molex connectors. Be careful when using the Y-adapters however, because if your power supply does not have enough power for all the devices attached (especially true for older, lower-wattage supplies), you can damage it.

E-machine 5220 power up


Emachines have notoriously cheap power supplies. Often, while the power supply itself doesn't fail, it causes the failure of motherboard components, essentially trashing the computer.

Try the following:

First check and make absolutely certain that the power switch connector is properly connected to the motherboard. (Take standard grounding/safety precautions: wear a properly-grounded grounding strap, for example, when working with any internal components.)

Obtain a known-good power supply of equal or greater capacity to your eMachines PS and switch 'em out. 

If either of these fixes your problem, well and good. If not, the problem may be, as is all too common with eMachines power issues, a motherboard issue caused by the power supply.
