Clean all the filters and spray arms YUCK!
Then check if there is a "reset" to the salt level. check solenoid to salt mixer is working. Check heater is working too.

Hi, I have a Gaggenau DF261160/11 dishwasher, which seems to not heat the water when washing. Does anyone have a service manual for this product?

Does it hot dry the dishes, this would indicate the heating element is ok and the cause is the control board.

I just tried plugging my new oven in (model number jrp24) and my GFI flips. The oven is off and the wires are connected properly. I live in a country that requires 220v, even though the oven says 120/

The model number according to GE says this is an electric oven.
It states that this oven will only be Hard wired and not supplied with electricity using a Plug. If it is gas, only one leg of the 220 volt power will be utilized. and the other usually colored white indicating natural, or green indicating Ground. Or, there will be a switch like on all computers that you will simply move to the selected voltage of the country that you live in and this will correct the high or low voltage. I hope this helps, without the full model # I will not be capable of knowing the actual voltage that the appliance works with.

The thermostat light does not stay on during cooking.the cooker does not get hot enough to cook properly.the light goes on and off during cooking.I think it should be constantly on.The cooker is a hotpoint...

Hello there and thank you for choosing fixya.
This is a very common issue with these appliances
Normally the temperature sensing probe is the part that fails and when it does the oven will heat up only some and the probe will indicate that it is at the right temperature thus turning off the light
when in fact the oven is not fully heated up
So i would first inspect the temperature sensing probe/ thermostate and if it looks really old or greasy i would highly suggest replacing it ok normally they are around 45 dollars or so ok?
Keep me posted on how this is going so i can give you any help that you may need
Best regards MIke

The "element on" indicator light

It the indicator light on all the time? Or after cooking and you turn the elements off the light stays on for a long time but it does eventually go off?

I have a whirlpool accubake duo, super capacity 465 and when I try to bake something the oven wont stay do I get the oven to stay on

What do you mean that it wont stay on? Does it turn off and on during cooking? Does it just go off and wont come back on? The oven thermostat regulates the heat in the oven and the oven element and the oven indicator light will turn off and on during cooking. If it stayed on constantly on full oven element power everything would burn.

Oven not heating up properly

Go to Lakeland and buy there oven thermometer - it is about £5. If that confirms the oven is not working as per the readings on the dial, i.e. 160 on the oven control dial is not shown on the thermometer, check the thermostat sensor. It is located at the rear top right hand side of the oven above the heating fan cover. It is about 6 inches long and thin, connected by an even thinner wire. It can be very brittle so treat it with care! It should be bright clean and shiny, if it is greasy and black, that may be your problem. Again from Lakeland buy there brush on oven cleaner and follow the instructions. I use it on all of the oven including the stay clean panels. Brush the liquid on and leave it for as long as necessary. The liquid gradually dissolves all the grease. You can keep reapplying and then when you are satisfied it is clean, wash it off and then dry it with kitchen towel as carefully as possible. try the oven again and see what happens. If you need a new thermostat, try espares and you will have to take the whole oven out of the kitchen carcass and then remove the top and rear panels to do the job.
(The thermostat may just be lazy, so if the Lakeland thermometer shows only 10 degrees out all through the range, I would live with that. Just make adjustements when you use it. My top oven is 15 degrees out).
