Follow this steps and fix it. God bless you
1. No power to the dishwasher
Make sure there's power getting to the dishwasher. Check for a tripped circuit breaker or a blown fuse. Check the wall socket for power. Sometimes the power cord disconnects at the dishwasher (inside the junction box, behind the bottom kick panel), if this is the case, the wiring must be repaired or replaced.

2. Door switch
Replace if defective.

3. Timer
Replace if defective (note: uncommon problem).

4. Selector switch
Replace if defective (note: uncommon problem).

I turned power off to my Frigidaire when turned back on the freezer lights up and working but in the fridge the light is not working and control panel is not either

I appreciate your post, Robert!

Based off what you have described your Frigidaire refrigerator is not working on the fresh food side. It sounds like there may be a possible short in your control panel and that is why half of your refrigerator is not working. I would recommend performing a reset on your refrigerator and you can do that by disconnecting the power cord for roughly ten minutes. If that does not help resolve your issue I would suggest contacting a professional technician for a proper diagnosis and repair. This will help you to avoid any unnecessary part purchases. Hopefully this has been helpful. -Matt

Timer is on and Tv will not come on

Press the System Reset Button which is on the RHS on control panel
If the TV fails to respond to the remote control, control panel
buttons, or will not power on/off, press the SYSTEM RESET button on the control panel.
The green LED on the front panel will flash quickly for up to one and a half minutes. When the green LED stops flashing, you may turn on the TV. Recent setting changes you made before using SYSTEM RESET may be lost.
If that fails try pressing and holding the menu button for 8 secs

Technika bellissimo oven not heating up

It is one of 4 things.
1. The heating element is out.
2. The dial temp control is bad
3. Only half of the breaker is on in the breaker box
4 If it is digital it could be your Control panel

In most cases we first check all breakers in the breaker panel if all is good. Then most likely one of your heating elements has burnt out. Try turning it to Broil to see if that one works if it does not work it is either your thermostat or control panel.

Half of control panel lights/numbers are out

The control touch panel basically has partly burned out and so you would have to replace the whole panel. should have a replacement, just use your model number to search for one.

Let me know how this works out for you.

Hampton bay fan light half power

I had the same issue....Take the remote control and press the light button once...then hold down the light button for several seconds and they should slowly increase and/or decrease depending on the amount of time you hold the control button. Hope this helped.
