SOURCE: Blinking small red light.

I had that problem, it is the filetr reminder. I used Reverse Osmosis water so I dont use a =fileter, but the machine doesn't know that. If I recall the manual was wrong on which button to push an hold. I dont remember which was was right (could be the steam button). but one of them does make the light go out in about 5-10 sec.

Greetings,

I have the same model air conditioner, and had the same symptoms. As you've probably discovered, Fedders is the company that actually built it, and went of business. No one is supporting it any more.

However, you may be in luck. I fixed the problem by simply tipping the unit almost all the way over on its back (leave a little gap) and letting the water drain out of the hose and the filter. After that, it started right up.

Hope that works for you. Stay cool. :)

SOURCE: Fridge temp set to 38 is blinking,,reset unit

I had a similar problem, paid a technician $90 to tell me to defrost the entire unit for 15-20 hours, and now it works like new. It is supposed to self defrost, but with poor circulation in the freezer (simply caused by too much stuff in there) the unit frosts up. This caused a rising temp in the freezer leading to inconsistent temps.

Anyone reading this with a similar issue, save your money and defrost it overnight. You should see a pool of water in the bottom of the freezer after defrost if this was the problem.

Defrost & power lights are blinking, Unit does not heat.


Heat pumps are only good above certain temps, like mentioned. Then usually heater coils come on if the unit has them. It may not. Check the manual, or Google the make and model for a user manual. Make sure all your breakers are on all the way, not tripped. A tripped one will be a little away from on, turn it all the way off and then on again.

Hi


If clean light is blinking then it may be an issue with heater circuit, door switch or wash pump, please reset the power to the dishwasher. After, 5 minutes check if you are still getting the same error. If yes, then it is a water heating fault. To resolve this error try pressing this reset sequence-- Heat Dry - Normal - Heat Dry - Normal or High Temp - Air Dry - High Temp - Air Dry or Hi Temp Scrub, energy saver dry, Hi Temp Scrub, energy saver dry or High Temp Wash-Heated Dry-High Temp Wash-Heated Dry . Now let the unit run for 2-3 minutes and then you press the Cancel/Drain button and allow it to completely drain and reset. If this doesn't work then it's an issue with the wash pump not pumping the water past the heater efficiently or due to lack of water to heat. Please make sure that heater is not open circuited and is heating the water efficiently. You'll have to check the heater using a multimeter; the meter should read between 3000 to 3300 ohms (Use multimeter on Rx1 ohm setting). If heater is fine then make sure water pressure is optimum and fill valve is working fine. Hope this helps... Please post back if you need more information.

Water in Machine-Lights Blinking


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. That means the control sensed that the heater in the D/W did not operate 3 times in a row. So the unit locks out. First remove the kick plate and you may have to pull the unit out from under the cab, but check your heater. Use a meter to see if it reads open; if so orders a heater assay it will come with a new control replace it too. If heater checks good then press in sequence normal wash, heat dry, normal wash, heat dry, normal wash, heat dry three times within 6 sec and all the lights will come on then hit cancel. What that did is reset the control and clear that fault. Keep in mind that D/W does not heat its own water and incoming water temp should be 120. The D/W will maintain that temp. When starting your D/W first turn on your hot water till it gets hot then start your D/W this ensures your unit fills with hot water and not cold


Please do rate the solution and revert for further assistance.


Thanks

Blinking lights, unresponsive


I went to the Maytag site looking for a manual. None existed for my model, but I looked up won't start under the FAQs. The advice said to push the cancel button twice. My model doesn't have one, so I just started at the left side of the control panel and pushed each button twice. pushing the dry button twice made the lights stop blinking. i pushed the wash button and the unit started.

Carrier heat pump: aux heat does not seem to work


The unit is probably to small for theare you are trying to heat.

When the Aux HT light came on that meant the heat pump could not keep up with the demand for heat. (Probably due to extreme cold, or undersized unit.)

If yu have heat, then at least one heat strip is operating. If you have multiple heatstrips, one or more could be malfuncioning.

Or it could simpy be to cold/to small fr your area and not able to keep up.

How many square foot are you trying to heat?
What is the outside temp?
What is the inside temp?
What size unit (BTU output) do you have?

sounds like the unit is over heating. let the computer cool for awhile. once you boot go into bios. select hardware monitor and watch the cpu temp. if the temp rises quickly maybe some thermal paste will do the job.$4 If the temp dose'nt rise fast and the unit still powers off then you might need a power supply. $25
