Model LTF2140ES0 (Frigidaire brand name). How do you reset the eeprom to the factory default?

    The machine is out of warranty. I have the tech sheet, but the machine will not go into diagnostic mode, and unplugging it does not help. I read online that when the row of LEDs on the right of the panel light up and the Pause/Cancel button does not turn them off that the panel has gone into a "special factory test mode", and the eeprom must be reset by pressing a sequence of buttons on the panel, but I have not been able to find that sequence.

Just open the unit and look for the eeprom IC 2407 or 2408 or 2404 or 24xx or whatever the IC series do have .This is the memory IC 24xx that stocks all the command . This IC has 8 pins 4mm wide 6mm long. If you find this IC just short pin 3 and 6 If no effect 3 and 7 it will shut down automatically. Then power on again then is already reset. Just use a tweezer or a paper clip to short the pins. Feel free to ask whatever the result.

Hope it may helps:

If this is a brand new machine it would be best to call your warranty service provider. You can also try to unplug the machine for 5 minutes or so and see if that will reset the electronic control. The only fault code that I could find close to yours was either an EF1 (clogged drain pump) or an EF2 (too much soap). To satisfy your curiousity remove the front service panel and look for the tech sheet that should have come with machine. A list of fault codes should be in there somewhere.

Thanks for contacting Fixya.

Frigidaire LTF2140ES0 washer lights come on but doesn't start

Hello friend, thanks for your post!
If your Frigidaire washer, LTF2140ES0, is not starting it could be a possible issue with your control panel or door latch. Is your washer showing you any error codes? Double-check to ensure that the door is closed. If it is secure, reset the power to your washer for roughly ten minutes. You can do this by either unplugging it or flipping your circuit breaker into the off position. If the issue continues, it could either be the door lock assembly or a communication problem with the control board. I would recommend reaching out to an experienced appliance tech just to ensure no troubleshooting step has been missed. I hope these troubleshooting tips help you in some small way. -Matt

Fridgidaire front-loading washing machine model # LTF2140ES0 will not spin

Good Afternoon Friend,

I understand that your Frigidaire washer, model# LTF2140ES0, will not spin. To try and resolve your washer not spinning, please try the following:

    1)Check your washer door and make sure it is completely closed.

    2)Check your dispenser drawer and make sure it is completely closed.

    3)Your load might be too small. Add 1 or 2 similar items to help balance the load.

    If the above does not work, I suggest resetting your appliance, by either unplugging it or shutting the power off at your home's circuit breaker, for 3-5 minutes. Turn the power back on and try any cycle. I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if your appliances status has changed successfully.

    -Best Regards-

I want to reset my phone

Hi mthiz564 ,

This depends on the type or brand of phone that you are using as the reset option is named differently in different brands , sometimes , restore factory settings, sometimes restore default settings , or sometimes , factory reset.

You would most probably fine these options in the settings menu of your phone , if you find it you can go ahead with the reset and your phone will return to it's original condition as on the day your brought it , as far as the internal settings are concerned.

Hope this helps ...:)

Need password to my netgear router n 300

what is the model #?
Most netgear routers default to a username of "admin" and password is either " admin ", "password" or it is just blank. Those are the defaults unless someone changed it.
If you cant get in you can hold down the reset button on the back for 30 seconds (while it is plugged into power) and that will set it back to factory default settings then one of the above should work.
If this was a help please give me 4 thumbs up as I am trying to build up my rep on this site!

if you mean wireless router name (ssid) One way you can get it back to defaults is to hold down the reset button for 30seconds or more, it should go back to factory settings with original name and settings.

depends on brand and model.
