F&P ED56 Got a F&P ED56 had a load in it and it stopped lights flashing wouldn't go, work out that the capacitor was the problem so replaced it.

Thanks, Deb

Fisher paykel dryer ed56

Could be the door switch or temp sensor. To check the door switch put pressure against the door and see if it stops. Check the slot the door hits to see if there is anything loose in there.

F&P ED56 has 2 problems

Yes, (2) certainly sounds like the start/run capacitor has failed. You will see it has a split or bulging case, or a displaced end cap. Replace it with one of the same voltage rating and capacitance.

I can't advise you on (1)

My F&P ED56 dryer just hums when it is turned on. The lights come on and it hums, but it doesn't turn or blow air. We have checked the belt (that is OK), the drum can spin by hand, there is no lint...

sounds like it maybe the motor, here are other reasons the drum won't turn and how to open the dryer. Good Luck Tim:

My fisher and paykel dryer ( mod# ED56 ) wont start, power is on

I had this same problem with my Dryer. It is making the few quick beeps because it thinks the door is still open. Near the bottom of the opening to the dryer there is a sensor switch that gets pushed in when you shut the door. Try holding the switch in with a knife or something and then start the dryer with the door open to check if that is the problem.
After i did this, i closed the door and my dryer started as normal.

Power on/boot-up problem

Have I got a story for you? Dell inadvertently used some defective capacitors in their Optiplex motherboards and some power supplies. From what I?ve experienced and read this affects the Optiplex 270 and early 280 lines. In my case my systems had video display problems and eventually ended up not booting. The giveaway is looking at the large 150 uf capacitors; they are the larger ones usually with an ?X? inscribed on the top. If the tops of the capacitors are flat you?re out of luck but if any of them are bulging (even slightly) at the top, leaking electrolyte or split Dell will replace the motherboard for free. This program is in effect till 2008. I wouldn?t recommend pulling the power supply apart but the flashing yellow power light for me has been a failed power supply. I would check out the motherboard for bad capacitors then call Dell. It?s likely they will replace the power supply if it?s in warranty, perhaps even if its out in light of the capacitor issue. If you?ve got some rounded caps on the motherboard I would also ask them to replace that as well. Let us know if you have any other questions and please don?t forget to rate this posting.
