My fridge freezer wouldn't stop beeping when it swtich on. The model no is FF4DSB hot point quadrio.




When you turn it on if it starts beeping you need to turn it off by holding the freezer off button at the top (or if a dial turn freezer dial to off)
Then turn the freezer back on and it will have reset the control and stops the beeping.

Then just leave it and after about 10-15 mins you should hear it kick in.

Splendide 2000S Washer/dryer won't wash/dry. Noise then stops, then dial clicks around endlessly.


sounds very much like the bearing has seized on the drum.
can you turn it by hand?
I'm betting it's either stuck or REALLY stiff

GBS20HBSBWW BOTTOM FREEZER, MAKING LOUD NOISE WHEN I TURN THE ADJUST KNOB IN THE REFRIGERATOR TOP TO 0 THE NOISE STOPS.


It sounds like your fan is hitting something. Usually there will be an ice block or something in the freezer pushed in on the back and cased the fan or wire to move ect... I hope this helps

GE bottom freezer began making a clicking noise, will not run


The clicking could be the start relay.If the start relay is bad, the compressor will not start and you will hear a clicking noise in 2-5 minute intervals. The clicking noise is the overload cutting the compressor off when it overheats from trying to start with a bad start relay. To find out if this is bad first unplug the refrigerator. Remove the lower cover from your refrigerator. Then take the cover off that is on the side of the compressor,you will see wires going to this. Now you should be able to see the start relay plugged on to the side of the compressor and unplug it. Now the best way to tell if it’s bad is to shake it. If it rattles, it’s bad and needs to be replaced. If not, most of the time it’s ok. But rather than saying the compressors bad, you might want to replace it anyways because it don’t cost much in most cases (less than $25). If you replace it and it doesn’t work then the compressor is bad and you’ll need you call a repairman. (Note that compressors are very costly and are normally not worth fixing). You can also enter your model # at www.appliancehelponline.com for diagrams and illustrations.

The unit stopped dispensing water, makes clicking nose


If you would like to do this yourself and save the fee of a service tech I ill tell you the motherboard and compressor start components have been affected. Just replacing the board is not always the answer. These refrigerators are sensitive to electrical surge, fan failure, compressor start component failure and eliminating the cause is the best and less expensive way to approach this, I will return later and discuss parts and I do need you to confirm your model is the GSH25JFR, Thanks, Sea Breeze

GE Spacemaker JVM1339ww002 - looking for photo of plugs in control board plugs for reassembly or a wiring diagram? Disassembled without noting locations and now start & clear buttons do not work. I have a very old model GE spacemaker XL microwave, model# JVM1339ww002. I repaired the #1 key by cleaning contacts and reinserting the ribbon connector to the control panel. However, I did not photograph the connections. Some plugs have only 1 location where they fit. However, 2 pairs of plugs are the same size and I do not know the correct place to reinsert them. I took a guess & reassembled the microwave and it worked except for the start/clear buttons. If you press a number 2 shortcut for example, it will cook 2 minutes and the food is heated. However, start and clear do not work at all. These buttons DID work before I repaired the numbers. I contacted GE and they gave me a hard time about providing the wiring diagram which was removed or not inside my microwave. I am not sure if I reassembled the plugs wrong OR if I broke something else when I was repairing the numbers. Can anyone help me with the right locations for the 2 pairs of plugs listed below? And/Or tell me if it sounds like start & clear are a new problem or will be resolved by getting the plugs correct? These are the 2 sets of plugs that can be inserted in either location: 1) a pair of matching white plugs that snap in place along the bottom (1 has white wires only and the other has 1 white/1 black wire) 2) a pair of red and white plugs of equal size in the middle of the board. They are similar (but smaller) to plugs in wall outlet with 2 prongs. Similar to a wall outlet, you can rotate the plug 180 degrees and they still fit. In other words besides asking which plug is upper or lower, do I need to worry if the plug is upside down or this doesn't matter? The red plug has black wires, while the white plug has blue and white wires.
