A power surge has occurred unfortunately. this surge has fried the control module and, you will need to replace this module asap.

I would check the motor as well. it may have took a hit as well. test the continuity of the element as well.

Replacing the control module didn't work for me. I found another forum where the expert suggested replacing the keypad. It's about a $70 part (beware the shops that are trying to get $200+ for it; MSRP is like $110).

Pac makes continous sound


What is the sound? Is the device working normally? Are there any lights or indicators? Do they indicate a fault or error?

A UPS runs on standard 110-120 VAC power. It converts the input power to DC and charges internal batteries, then back to AC. Connected devices actually run on the conditioned 115-120 VAC output. The batteries serve as a short term backup power source.

The electronics in the UPS can produce hum or high pitched tones. The sound should not be annoying. If it is louder than connected equipment (computers) it may indicate a problem. Hum is usually 60 Hz harmonics and difficult to eliminate. This harmonic may be transferred to audio equipment such as speakers or radios. A high pitched tone can be related to the rectifiers for the convertor/invertor. If the tone is loud, it means the rectifiers are drawing a lot of current. This is usually related to bad batteries.

Measure the voltage on the output receptacles. It should be 115-120 VAC. Disconnect everything on the output receptacles. Unplug the UPS from it's power source. If the output power dies within 1 minute, the batteries need to be replaced.

Hi! After a power outage my Little Giant SPBS-12 backup system sounded an alarm that wouldn't quit even after power was restored (it was only off for an hour). When unplugged the louder and more...


What is the age of the unit? Those batteries don't last forever and are constantly under a small charge. When the outage happened the battery discharged and the sensing circuit was able to tell that the battery was no longer any good.

I have a newer model GE dishwasher. About a couple of weeks ago we lost power to home. When power was returned the dishwasher was making a high pitch sound and power was not returned to the front...


Hello

High pitch sound comes when the main control also known as the electronic board goes bad and needs replacement. Please try to blow air with hair dryer on the display just to check if that'll solve the problem. Hope you understand...If it does not then replacement of part is only recommended repair. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

Power outtage blues


Hello daniedag,
Unfortunately, your dishwasher may have experienced a power surge when the power went off and dmaged some internal components or the control logic. There is no way of knowing the extent of your problem without a thorough diagnostics to it. It could be something as simple as a circuit borad component, stuck relay but this kind of repair is probably not something you would want to tackle yourself unless properly trained and with the proper test equipment. If you have homeowners insurance, it may cover the damage.. If not, then a service call is most likely required. Here is a link to the GE website for yopur dishwasher but your model is not PWD9200 and IS PDW9200 http://genet.geappliances.com/DocSearch/Dispatcher

Hope this helps..
Regards,
Rick

Problem with GE Profile Dishwasher


My delay start switch does not work and the dishwasher beeps periodically throughout the day. Also, I have it set for a 109 minute cycle and after about 20 minutes it says that I only have 35 minutes left in the cycle! Any suggestions?

High pitched rattling not associated with TV audio


Quite possibly the HVT arcing, which will eventually fail.

The problem with them arcing is they can be doing damage to other components.

Best to have it checked by an experienced tech.
