Frigidaire PLD4555RDC2 Runs when not started after power outage

Yesterday we lost power. When it came back on, the Low light was on, which I wasn't concerned about because I assumed it would go off after a few cycles (we don't use a rinse agent). However, ever since then, if we close our dishwasher all the way, it starts running. We don't have any cycle selected and haven't pressed start. It just starts as soon as it clicks shut. Can you help?

Hi Emily, I am happy to assist you. First, I suggest reprogramming the dishwasher. This can be done by either flipping the household circuit breaker off or unplugging it. Sometimes, resetting power to the unit for about ten minutes does the trick. If not, you may want to connect with a local servicer who will be best equipped to pinpoint the problem since the unit could possibly be experiencing a communication issue with the control board and door lock assembly, a potential wiring failure or a faulty door latch. If you don't know a qualified technician, you can use the service locator option on the manufacturer site to find one near you.

SOURCE: my dishwasher shuts itself off

The lights will typically blink when the door comes open. It may be that when the washer warms up, parts of it expands and allows the door to open slightly. It may also be that the trigger that registers the door being shut is not being tripped.

SOURCE: Frigidaire PLD4460REC Dishwasher will not start

This is very likely due to a bad main electronic control board but the only way to know for sure is to do some electrical testing with a volt/ohm meter and the wiring diagram located within the appliance. If possible use the meter and the wiring diagram to check input/output voltages looking for discrepancies between the diagram and the actual meter readings.

I successfully replaced the broken handle for my ELECTROLUX 24" Built-In DISHWASHER Model FDB956RB.
Try to check to make sure you reassembled all the parts and wire connectors properly.
Other than the broken handle, did you have other problems prior to replacing the handle/latch?

Frigidaire ffu1767fwo (power spike) does not turn on can it be fixed

Hello tom97420 - Was the freezer unplugged during the power outage? It is best to be unplug unit and wait for the power to come back on, turn control to off, plug the unit in and reset control to factory suggested setting. Do not open freezer door unnecessarily if freezer is off for several hours. Make sure the freezer plug is tightly pushed into electrical outlet and not plugged into a GFI. Is the temperature control in the OFF position? Set temperature controls to proper setting suggested by owners guide or set to the halfway point and adjust it up or down as needed. If any suggestions are ineffective, contact a professional to move forward accurately. From what you have described the power loss could have possibly caused a communication problem with the control board, temperature control or wiring harness.

Stopped working after power outage

If you cannot fix - too expensive or whatever - consider a replacement with a five year 100% parts and labor warranty and in-home service. Imperial (made in USA) is the only range hood manufacturer that offers this. More information here:

Power won't stay on although there is electricity. If i reset, the power light comes on, but only for 2 seconds- the fridge is now 60 degrees. We lost power yesterday afternoon- could this have fried it?

After a power outage and possible power surge it is very probable serious damage was done. Worst case senario being a grounded compressor. I know of nothing you can do yourself. Time for a service call.

I would chech the components on the compressor. Take the cover off the compressor power terminals and inspect the relay for damage.The power outage is not a concern but the power surge could definately be the cause. hope this helps.

Power outage

I would say that is not a feature, it's a problem. Sounds like the control board has no battery backup of any kind to retain settings in case such an outage occurs. If still under warranty, have it fixed. A refrigerator should be trusted to be left unattended, if this has been this way from new, you should have complained the first time it happened. If they say that it's in the design and all of these do this, perhaps there's a class action waiting to happen.

Surge protectors are meant to trip whenever an outage occurs to prevent component damage. If possible remove back panel and check if any fuses were burned. If all looks normal then your component is most likely fried.

Won't charge after the battery runs low.

that means your battery is flat so first boost the battery using universal charger or in other way charge you battery directly
