3E == overcurrent detected at the motor.

Open the control panel, there you will find a tech sheet that explains how to put the machine into service mode and what to do while in service mode to track this down. Once on service mode, you can cycle through and retrieve all diagnostic codes. You will also find serveral other diagnostic service notes. Read them and follow the instructions to test the motor, motor control, and main control board. Hope this helps.

E3 error on LIfesmart heater


Even after replacing thermostat and motherboard offered from company, my heater would trigger e3 error code and shut off. After several (maybe 100!) different attempts to plug in and operate, here is what worked for me!
Depress the power button on the heater while plugging in to wall circuit. Continuously depress power button. It will run through a test cycle and attempt to start. Keep depressing the power button as the heater tries to start, then shuts down with e3 error. While the power button is still depressed, unplug the unit from the wall. When I plug back in the wall the E3 error is gone. Good luck

Avanti w798-ss e3 error


It seems there is a fault on the main controller unit of the washer. It seems to start and then drain off in mid cycle. Now choose a different program and see if there is any change. Also check individually the inlet valve, the water level sensor and also the drain valve. Also check all the connections to the main panel.

Its flashing E3 and chiming. and stopped washing


Hi

E3 is an overload error and indicates that the washer motor is not running properly. You can take out some clothes and then restart the cycle by pressing the START/PAUSE button. After this, if the error appears again then check the motor connections, if everything appears fine then the motor should be replaced. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

My washer has passed all the diagnositc test BUT when running through a simple quick cycle it keeps beeping E3


Hi,

e3 means that the control board is detecting current going to the motor, but the motor won't turn properly. If the error code comes up all the time as soon as you press the power on button, then it means your control board is bad and reading incorrectly. If it only happens during a cycle, then you need a new motor unfortunately.

Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

The cuff appears to be working, but always returns E3.


E3 error code is an Error Determining Measurement Data. This can be caused by movement of the wrist, hand or arm during the measuring function. In which case, sit very still with your wrist at heart level, until the measuring cycle has completed.

If this continues to happen, contact HoMedics (the manufacturer) Customer Support Dept at 800-466-3342.

Hope this helped you. Please let me know.

e3 code as per the service manual states;


Machine control
is attempting to
drive the motor
but is not seeing
any tach
response. Visual
check shows
motor is not
moving. (Locked,
Hall Sensor fault


a locked hall sensor generally requires replacing the sensor, however on the p[art breakdown for this unit it is listed as part of the motor assy and even that is not clear enough to give you a definitive answer, it lists for over $200 so im not even comfortable telling you " just replace the motor without first running though moore diagnostic tests first.although placement of the tech document is also unclear to me, there is one located within the machine , usually taped to inside wall( for tech to read and daig), pretty descriptive as to how to test certain components.oretty hard ti walk you through step-by-step on this forum.sorry cant be of more help then this

Our Mitsubishi FDC506HES ducted air conditioner keeps shutting off on hot and cold after about 10 minutes and flashes and the comes up with the error code E3.It will heat for those 10 monutes before it...


Try to reset the error by disconnecting the circuit breaker for 10sec. and "on" again then operate the unit. But if wont work may there some parts that are defective that trigger the error E3. Replacement of pars is needed for this problem.

Error e3


Drain pump probably not working. Put machine on cycle 7 and it should turn on the drain pump straight away. you can hear this near the bottom of the machine. if it is silent hten the pump probably needs replacing. I repaired mine be removing it and then dismantle the magnet from the tube then give it a good clean out.
