SOURCE: GE French Door Frig control panel blinking temp #s

I had a very similar problem with our GE refrigerator. The main control board looked to be the culprit. I took out the board and did a visual inspection. Upon inspection I discovered that the (2) 470 micro farad capacitors were blown. I checked the power diode near these and it was still ok. I went to Radio Shack and picked up two 470 micro farad - 35V capacitors for and grand total of $2.60 and resoldered them myself. The refrigerator has been running great since. If you want to know more details email me and I will be happy to let you know what I know. I didn't want to pay $100 for a GE guy to replace a board either!

SOURCE: Whirlpool frig. Freezer warm, frig seems ok.

Since the temperature is already 40°, the cold control is satisfied and will not run. Thus the freezer will warm up to 40°.

SOURCE: High pitch/humming noise from Frigidaire Refrig.

You have to isolate this problem. It could be one of three things. The compressor, the condenser fan motor or the water valve that feeds the ice maker and wtaer dispenser. Also if the high pitch sound is compared to that of a bird then it is definitely the condenser motor. To isolate the problem take the back cover off. LISTEN FOR THE HIGH PITCHED/HUMMING NOISE! Use a flash light and see if you can tell where it is coming from while it is doing the noise. Dont try this unless you know what your doing. Stop the condenser fan blade with the end of a hard object, but stop it gradually. Dont try this cause you might brake/bend the blade. But if you did and the noise stop then you figured out your problem. If not ythen disconnect the water valve. It has to doulble harness wires attached to it. if problem still exisit then it has to come from the compressor. Unless you have a warranty then theres nothing no one can do except change it. $300-400 job easily.

SOURCE: Have an Amana 85088 P1109007W

It may be in defrost mode. Look at the temp control on the underside for a hole with no
screw in it that appears to serve no purpose. Using a flathead screwdriver, turn the
mechanism inside the hole, (it is the defrost timer) and see if the unit comes on. If no
luck, then replace the start relay which is located under the plastic cover on the side of
the compressor. It plugs onto the compressor on three pins, if no replacement is available
they make a "universal" start kit for about 8 dollars which plugs onto these pins and has
good instructions. Model and serial number are usually inside the fresh food compartment
on the left side. The appliance parts store should have this item readily available.
Hope this helps :) remember to unplug unit before replacing any parts.

Furnace kicks on and heats up for 5 min. then will shut down - no flame - main blower will run for a few min and then the whole cycle will start again. flame sensor checked ok with meter at approx 5.0


What is your temperature rise during the 5 minutes it does run? Could be overheating and kicking out on limit switch. Watch the diagnostic light for a code. (3 blinks means this, 4 blinks means that etc.)

Thethe tv will not come on and power and theopc is flashing.


Ok This is how to troubleshoot the TV, there are lights on the front and you are mainly concerned with two of these lights (the power light and the OPC light). I) If non of the lights come on then this is a AC Power failure (There is a loose connection or you need to check the Power/Inverter unit or the Main unit) II) If the power light is blinking at a rate of one blink per min and the OPC light is off (then there is a CCFL backlight problem) III) If the power light is blinking at a rate of two times per min and the OPC light blinks at a rate of one time per min (13V/UR10V failure you need to check the Power/inverter board or the main board). IV) If the power light is blinking at a rate or two times per min and the OPC light blinks at a rate of two times per min (3.3V Main Failure check power/inverter board or Main board). V) If the power light is blinking at a rate or two times per min and the OPC light blinks at a rate of three times per min (UR6V failure check power/inverter board or Main board). VI) If the power light is blinking at a rate or two times per min and the OPC light blinks at a rate of Five times per min (Panel 5V failure check LCD control unit or control panel).

Amana AGR5735QDS. Bake/Broil don't work, Clean/burners do work


Hello- Most problems with todays ranges start after 'self clean', or as most techs call it- 'self destruct'. If control functions normally, the temp can be run up manually by holding button down until it reaches 500deg., then holding it down until it stops and reads 0 or +/- 5,10, etc. This is a temp adj. mode. If it won't adj. or work at all, control is bad. If it works, then twin ignitor failures are not unheard of. Resistance across either ignitor should be above 4 ohms., if not, they have failed. Avoid 'self clean'. Tears electronics up and wastes energy. Use drip pans and try to forsee boil overs. Grandma figured it out a long time ago. Hope this helps. Thanks- ED

Lights are on but nothing else


Checked the switch in the freezer and it was bad. Odd time for it to go out, but it was not working and it would work intermittently if you shook it.

Defrost


Could be. Is the unit working right otherwise? Sometimes replacement units (field service components) do different things than factory. Flashing all the time seems wrong, though.
