Nautilus bathroom fan blades don't turn

We have a bathroom fan installed in a wall to directly duct to the outside. It's an older Nautilus. When I turn the knob to turn it on, it hums, but the blades don't move. I can't even figure out how to get the fan cover off. Please help!

Re: Nautilus bathroom fan blades don't turn

The motor is sized up. call someone to replace it and they should know how to remove the cover.

When I turn on the system to start, the motor hums but nothing happens and no water comes out. We have not used it in at least a couple of months.

One Ge dishwasher when they sit for a long time and dont get used the most tends to stick. IN most cases its pretty easy to unstick it. To do that remove the lower panel below the door and you will see the pump/motor assambly, If your dishwasher is older their will be a black fan blade between the pump and motor,turn it and you fell some resistiance at first but by turning fan blade you will fell it pop free. If their is no black fan blade the fan is in the rear of the motor(aluminum colored part) turn the fin in the rear of the motor and once again it will pop free.After freeing up if you dont use regulally just start for at least 30 seconds every week and it wont stick.

I have a GE Nautilus dishwasher. I recently started hearing a clicking noise during my dishwasher cycle. It seems to becoming from behind the access panel on the left hand side of the machine. There are...

The pump/motor assembly on these dishwashers have a soft food cutter that helps to cut up smal soft food particles. This may be your problem.

These cutter blades can sometimes get loose or something can get hung up in them like a broken piece of glass or some other pieces of trash that they can not handle.

You can access these blades by removing the sump cover near the rear of the bottom of the inside of the dishwasher. remove the bottom rack and take a couple of screws out of the sump cover. you can feel down in the sump and see if there is any trash caught up here or in the blades.

If this is not the problem and you have an older dishwasher - you could have a problem with a loose fan blade in the motor. If this is the case I would run it til it dies. The motor/pump assembly is about $125+. The newer motors are a lot quieter.

If everything is working ok. I wouldn't worry too much about it.

F1 fault

F1 code would mean the flood switch is activated.

In Nautilus people have found this to be caused by a faulty door seal.
Water seeps under the diswasher base panel and finally the flood switch (a protection) activates.

The solution is to replace door seal after drying out under the base panel.

I have a ge nautilus built in dishwasher and do not know the model number it is 7 years old and came with house. need to replace and am unsure of dimensions for correct sizing on new purchase

You can find them on a label on the tub wall just inside the door. However 99% of all DW are a standard size and the difference is made up by adjustments of the threaded leveling /adjustment legs.

Standard size is 24" x 32-36" can take a tape measure and measure from the floor to the bottom of the countertop it is to be installed under...and then measure across the front of the DW. you should find my measurements to be within this range unless it is a custom unit.

Hope this helps. ...good luck and good day...The Fang

GE Nautilus wont start

check the two switches under the inside cover of the door. there are two switches under the flimsy metal switch actuator, one switch has a black wire in both ends the other switch should have two white or white/red strip wires on one end and one white or white/red wire on the other end. the black wire is power the white wire is your neutral. both switches should have a button in the middle that is pushed in by the flimsy metal switch actuator when you lock the door shut. i had to replace the switch for my neutral when mine quit working. you can remove this switch and get the part number off of it. you can look it up on line or call a small appliance repair store to see if they have the part or can order it for you. remember to unplug the dishwasher before you remove the the inside cover of the door. hope this helps.

Motor not running?

There is a pump motor underneath with an impeller that is most likely stuck. You will need to turn the impeller until it breaks loose if it is stuck. This is a common problem with GE dishwashers and I recommend that you run it at least once or twice a week to avoid this problem in the future, even if you have to run it empty.

GE nautilus wont run

These motors were famous for the seal sticking to shaft. If this is an older unit turn the fan on motor by hand until it breaks free. Do this with power off.

Soap door latch won't latch close

Make sure the dial that you turn to start the dishwasher is all the way to the beginning. Sometimes my little grandson comes by and plays with it, turning it. I load, add soap and the dispenser won't close. I check the outside dial, and sure enough, set it to the very beginning and the dispenser locks in place!
