Opening the control panel to remove the timer

How do I open the control panel so that I can remove the timer?

    To access behind the front control panel:

    1. There is a small round cylinder-like metal tab that looks like it accepts a torx (star shaped) screwdriver at the bottom of the control panel on each end (left and right). Use pliers (preferably locking pliers) to pull down on one of the tabs (they are spring loaded) and keep it held down: this unhooks the top of the panel on that side, so pull that top corner out, release the tab and repeat on the other side. The control panel now comes out (with wires attached) and can be unhinged at the bottom.

    2. If you need to remove the timer: First release the timer knob by pushing it in and then pull the black tab out of the hole at the back of the timer using a fingernail or screwdriver (comes out about half an inch). The knob will now come out easily, and the wheel behind it should be able to slide out with some encouragement (You do not need to take it apart - I didn't know this and so I unnecessarily took it apart, slightly breaking it, because it didn't slide out super easily). Disconnect the wire connector, remove the 1 screw holding the timer in place, slide it sideways to unhook it, and pull it out. Unlike (it seems) all of the other instructions out there, you cannot simply push the knob in and turn it counter-clockwise to remove it, that black tab at the back needs to be pulled out.

What will cause a sunroof not to close properly on a 2007 Milan


A lot of thing's , has sensors , switches , a control module , relay's etc....
The roof opening panel is an electronically operated panel that can be opened or closed by pressing a switch located on the overhead console. It also has one-touch open, one-touch close, one-touch vent open and one-touch vent close features.

Roof Opening Panel The roof opening panel assembly uses an integrated motor and module to operate the roof opening panel. The roof opening panel motor and module are installed new as an assembly. The roof opening panel is an electronically operated glass panel that can be opened, closed or tilted by the roof opening panel switch. Actuating the switch in either a forward or rearward motion supplies a ground to the roof opening panel motor/module. The roof opening panel has one-touch open and one-touch close features that are activated when the switch is momentarily pressed to the double detent OPEN or CLOSE position. These functions are controlled by the roof opening panel motor/module.
The roof opening panel motor must be initialized whenever the roof opening panel motor has been removed from the roof opening panel system, the roof opening panel assembly has been removed from the vehicle, a new roof opening panel motor has been installed or a new roof opening panel assembly has been installed.

The roof opening panel is an electronically operated panel that can be opened or closed by the roof opening panel switch. Actuating the switch in either a forward or rearward motion supplies a ground to the roof opening panel motor. The vent and soft-stop functions are controlled by the roof opening panel motor. These positions are obtained when an internal motor cam opens the roof position switch, removing the ground from the switch. The roof opening panel has an express open feature activated when the switch is pressed momentarily. The roof opening panel is closed by continuous activation of the switch until the sunroof stops movement. This function is controlled by the roof opening panel motor.

I have a kenmore washer that stops mid cycle before spin and drain.If I advance dial manually, it will continue and complete the cycle. This leads me to believe timer is the issue. Likely?


Yes it's a timer issue. I opened one once and seen that the following may work.
Sears repair tech told me the points in the timer can stick together. Try this, works sometimes: spin timer around as fast as you can 2 or 3 times, if the points are stuck, this can cause them to release. Other that that? Timers are expensive, unless you get one off a machine that is put out for pick up like I did. People toss these machines for such silly reasons. There's good parts on most of what gets tossed. Here's how to remove the control panel if needed:
Disconnect the power cord. Turn off the water. There is either two screws, one at each front corner, holding the control panel in place or hidden clips. 1. If you see the two screws remove them. If no screws are visible you have a clip at each front corner of the control panel. The best tool to use to unhook these clips is a putty knife. From the front push the putty knife between the machine top and the control panel at either outer corner of the control panel . You will feel a spring tension. Push firmly, but not to forcefully toward the back. When the spring releases the control panel corner will lift easily. Repeat at the other corner. 2. Now, if there was two screws holding the panel, remove the two screws at the top on the back of the control panel. If just clips, simply and carefully roll the control panel over the back.
An exploded view of your machine is available at www.sears.com under the parts direct tab enter your model number, found under the lid at the back of the tub opening. aka. 000.00000

No cooling in refrigerator and freezer msd2456geq

It is possible that the defrost timer has failed while in defrost. The defrost timer can be found inside the control panel inside the fresh food compartment. The defrost timer is location number 13 in the photo=> HERE You can test the defrost timer by going through a small opening in the control panel or by opening the control panel and using a flat head screwdriver and turning the timer dial slowly clockwise until the compressor and fans restart. If this starts the refrigerator again then you will need to replace the timer because it is defective. I am here should you have questions, Sea Breeze

First step before opening the control panel is to push in the timer knob and unscrew the knob in a counterclock wise direction and then pull the dial off, a screwdriver can be placed behind the dial to assist in removing it. Under the dial are the screws that hold the timer to control panel

Area around freezer opening on a PDS20S GE


This is uaually caused by the condenser fan next to the compressor not running. Remove the cardboard backing to see it, give it a spin if it's not running. Even if it starts running with a spin you'll need to replace it.
Or If the evaporator coils behind the back panel of the freezer are icing up because of auto defrost failure that will stop the circulation of cold air and eventually affect the freezer too. check defrost timer, defrost heater, defrost thermostat. In most newer models the timer has been replaced by an electronic control board. If the heater and thermostat are ok it’ll be the control.

You can turn the defrost timer till it clicks and everything shuts down. The heater should now come on. If it does, replace the timer. If it doesn't, check the heater and defrost thermostat. Turn the timer again till everything starts back up to end the defrost cycle.

Refrig Ice is freezing up on the door dispenser


Most likely the defrost timer or Adaptive defrost. Yours has the defrost timer. I want you to open the fresh food compartment and find a small opening through the control panel. The opening may have a plastic plug covering the hole to hid it. Remove plug and turn timer clockwise slowly until the compressor stops running. The compressor should remain off for about 25 minutes. If it does not turn itself back on then turn the timer slowly again to the right/clockwise until it does. If you need to restart the compressor. this way the timer will need replaced.Defrost timer is part number 482493 Keep me informed on your progress, Sea Breeze

Freezer works fine but fridge has lost its temperature.


The fridge gets its cold air from the freezer through a vent between the freezer and fridge.The fan in the freezer blows air through it. There is a flap you adjust with the fridge temp. control. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the fridge temp

..

Soap dispenser will not open during cucle


The dispenser is opened by a control rod inside the door. There is probably something amiss with this. Remove the back panel on the door and you'll probably see the problem.
