The fuse is a we4x800. It is mounted on the heater housing on the back wall of the dryer.

Mounts on rear wall atop the heater element. If the dryer needs cleaning it someimes will overheat and trip this limit. I recently repaired one of these and made some PHOTOS

SOURCE: my ge dryer model DRS483ED1WW won't turn on all it does is buzz when I try. I have changed starter switch that didn't work

does the drum and motor turn by hand freely. but i think its possibly the bushes in the motor. just have a look at motor and see if theres black carbon dust on it, you will get this on a motor anyway but not in excess

Won't shut off


You may have a problem with a door switch or door switch mount, or there may be a shorted relay on the control board, which can easily be repaired.
Our help file on door switches is here, and the Advantium 120 service manual is here.
You can order GE parts from the Pros here.

My microwave won't heat


The real clue here is strangely enough the table not turning.

All units have a switch in the side (usually the right side) of the cabinet--when door is opened it allows the unit to work but will not heat or the table (usually both) will not work.

It has to be got at from the inside of the unit--little plastic holder with the switch which looks like a leaf switch.

What I have seen several times (including a unit I own) is that from countless opening and closing the door the holder may break or even melt and the contacts on the switch no longer are in position to work when door is open.

The purpose of such a switch is simple---it prevents the unit from being used if the door is OPEN.

Not a hard or expensive repair

Where my clock was on my stove a E1 F-5 came up and my oven won't work now. The top burners are working but the oven won't. We don't have a manual for troubleshooting. Can you help me?...


F5 - E1 Self clean latch will not lock
2. If door not latched:
  1. Disconnect power from unit.
  2. Check wires and connectors from control to latch switch, then from latch switch to control. If no damage to wires and all connectors okay, proceed to step C.
  3. Repeat steps A and B for door switch

Hi. My GE Triton Dishwasher GSD5500G01WW is dead. No lights or anything. I checked the breaker. It was fine. Any ideas?


hello there and welcome to fixya
Door switch The door switch is important because, if it's defective, the dishwasher won't work at all. To reach it, you need to remove the control panel cover, or sometimes the interior liner of the door. If it's defective, you need to completely replace it. To determine if the door switch has failed, watch the part testing video at the bottom of this page. Wiring Often the main wiring connection from the house, at the dishwasher, burns and breaks the connection. If that's the problem, the wires must be repaired/replaced as necessary. If that's not the problem, check the wiring to the door switch, the wiring between the door and the lower part of the dishwasher, and the wiring to the timer. Repair any broken, burned, brittle, or defective wiring, using the proper appliance-grade wire and connectors. Timer or selector switch Although it's uncommon, the timer or the selector switch may be defective. If so, you need to replace the defective part, because neither of these can be repaired.

The door keeps saying it is open and i replaced the door sensers but its not that can you help


Hello melvin... When the light stays on it usually means a door is open or the switch on a door or liftgate/trunk is bad. If the door adjar button is seperate from the latch assembly I pull the switch from the body and jump it out. Go one by one and you will find the failed switch. If the switches check ok and the connector is jumped and the light is still on then there is an open in the wires for the door ajar switch
Here are more procedures for troubleshooting...

Possible causes are :
1. Door switches stuck in closed position. Remove the rubber cover and loosen the screw holding the door switch. Pull out switch and check if the light stays on....if light remains on, fault is not with switches.

2. Anti-theft system ECU shorted. One of the wire goes to the alarm control unit. Unplug the alarm unit, if equipped and test.

3. Shorted interior dome light. If dome light is not working in the door ajar mode, remove the dome light and unplug the connector. If indicator light does not go off, fault is not with dome light.

4. Shorted Red/White wire. This would be the most difficult to diagnose as the shorting can be anywhere between the door switches to the indicator light. If you had done any wiring repairs prior to this happening, backtrack to check if any part of the wire is exposed and grounding

Good luck...i hope this helps.

The open door light on the dashboard won't go off and the dome light stays on 2001 Sub For. All doors are in fact closed.


Posibly a short in the wiring from a door switch. Try each one with the rest of the doors closed until you find it. You should be able to remove the switches from the door pillars.
