I had the same problem with a comparable device. It turned out that the drive belt that operates the ejection mechanism wears out or breaks.
To get at it you need to do the following:
1. remove device cover
Drawer won't open.  Says
2. remove the identification cover on the front of the DVD tray. This may be tricky if you can't open the tray. You need to find a way, because otherwise you can't remove the DVD unit, at least not on my unit.
3. remove the DVD unit by detaching the cables and removing four screws.

5. remove the front top cover of the DVD unit by pushing the two tabs on the top of the unit, near thDrawer won't open. Says "blocked". - 97937cf.jpg />97937cf.jpg

Bedankt voor deze simpele, maar doeltreffende oplossing. Een snaartje uit een oude DVD speler/brander gehaald en deze verwisseld met de uitgerekte/versleten snaar.

Bottom oven drawer stuck partially open. Cannot close or fully open. Model #316471000


Hello Dan, thank you for your post!

I understand that the bottom drawer of your Electrolux range will not close and it partially open. It is possible that your rail or drawer may be damaged or blocked. I would recommend pulling the drawer out to inspect it. If you pull the drawer out there should be tabs on the side to unlock in order to remove the drawer fully. The model number you have provided is invalid you can locate the model number on the serial tag. The serial tag can be found on the frame of the drawer. I look forward to assisting you. -Matt

The cd drawer won't stay closed


the cd drawer will probably use infra-red to sense when the drawer is open or closed or maybe just a gear mechanism, either way these must be clean, I'd take it apart and lean it all with cotton buds and isopropyl alcohol

We have a fisher Pakel dd603 2 drawer , the top draw wont close so we r trying to remove it to see what is blocking it can't figure out how to take top draw out


Hi!
There are two small clips down in the front of each drawer, one on each side. You depress these clips/tabs which are attached to the drawer slides, and then the drawer can be lifted away from the rails. You need to be very careful not to damage the hose/wire harness guide behind the drawer.
What may have happened is one of the "spring clips" on the rear of the rails has popped up when the drawer was open so the drawer will not have that "snap shut" feel you are used to when the drawer is almost all the way closed.

If you require more assistance, please ask.

I cannot open the DVD drawer on my Philips DVDR3480 DVD RECORDER – it just won’t open? The screen display just keeps saying ‘Error’. Any help is appreciated.


I have two of these dvd recorders and both have the exact same problem where the drive won't open. It opens fine when there is a disc in the tray. So I just unscrewed the cover, press the white part which would be over the center of the disc as it's trying to open, it should then open. Then just make sure there is always disc left in the tray.

First, make sure the DVD Recorder is completely disconnected from the Main Supply.

Then, if you look on the base of the unit, (just underneath the front of the Disc Insert/Eject Tray), there is a small slot, (approx 25 x 8mm), in which you can see a small, white, plastic lever probably situated near the right-hand side of the slot.

Then move this lever gently to the left, and then turn it on and the tray opens by pushing the button.

CD drawer will not open or close


Had The Same With Mine. Its was the belt Inside that joins Motor To Cd Tray. Its Black and directly under the cd tray at the front. Its probably either loose like mine of maybe broken. I replaced mine with an elastic band and its been fine since.
