SOURCE: Screen says oL. Kenmore oasis elite he 110.2708,2709

OL, usually means Over Loaded. It is an error code thrown up by the on board computer.. generally when TOO much wet weight is in the bowl.

I have Hanson HX5000 bathroom scales that are showing error message OL. I have replaced the battery and ales no difference - anyone gave any ideas how to fix? Photo for reference


First, make sure the battery is not in backwards. If that's no help, let it set overnight without the battery in it before putting it back in. Also, make sure the unit is setting on a level, solid floor - not carpet (this looks like it's tile, but the grout lines are awfully bumpy-looking. . . If none of these things work, I'd say you got a bad unit. Were there no instructions included?

Screen say OL on my Kenmore Catalyst Elite. What does oL mean?


OL error means the Motor Controller has sensed an Overload.

The oL code means the motor control board is struggling to power the motor up. If it recurs after removing some clothes - usually this means a new motor control.... or worse - a new bearing.

If it were a problem with the tub floating up, the unit would spin instead of nutate.

Bearing failure in this machine is very common.

I suspect the drive shaft and bearing are the problem. The bearing and shaft are part of the outer tub.

Ge microwave mod. #JVM1851BH06. i ohmed the capicitor 2 meg ohm and increased to 11 meg ohm. I also measured the diode which i believe branches off one leg of capacitor it shows open resistance O.L. both...


I'd say your diode is bad but your capacitor may be good. You need to test it further - as described below.

In order to get reliable measurements to make a determination about the condition of the components, each should have at least one lead removed from the circuit. If not, your meter will read the through the rest of the circuit - and not be limited to the diode or capacitor under test.

To check a diode: Set the meter to to the lowest scale (Rx1) and touch black (-) probe to the cathode of the diode (the end with a band around the diode body) and the red (+) to the anode lead to reverse bias the diode. The meter should indicate "OL" or high resistance. Reverse the meter probes so that RED (+) is on the cathode lead and black (-) is on the anode to forward bias the diode. The meter should read a very low resistance - approaching 0 ohms. Diodes should conduct in one direction only - and the other is should look "open" If it conducts or is open in both directions, it is defective. Zener diodes can be checked with an ohm meter, but need a variable voltage supply and are required to be in a circuit (instead of out of circuit like a standard diode) for accurate testing. A link to zener diode testing here.

To check a capacitor: Set the meter to the lowest scale (Rx1) and touch probes to capacitor leads. The meter should indicate "OL" or high resistance and show steadily decreasing resistance before increasing to OL or high resistance again. Swap probes from the meter on the capacitor leads and "OL or high resistance indication should change to an even lower amount of resistance thas before before returning to "OL" or high resistance indication. These are test result characteristics of a good capacitor under test.

I hope this helps & good luck! Please rate my reply - thanks!

I have a Porter Cable BSV750 generator with no electrical output. How do I test the capacitor?


You need an multi meter, on the ohms scale. Short the two prongs on the cap out, removing any voltage on it. Put your meter to a mid range ohms scale. Touch the leads to the prongs on cap and watch your meter. It should start climbing in value and then go to 'OL' if it's digital. If it's an analog meter(with a needle) it will go all the way over to 'infinite. This means it's good.
If it's bad, it will just read 'OL' or go right to 'zero' meaning it's either shorted or open.

I get a message "oL" & the clothes are not spinning

I suspect the drive shaft and bearing are the problem. The bearing and shaft are part of the outer tub.

The new outer tub with bearing W10128830 cost approximately $197 dollars.

If you can get access to the shaft it may be an Emory cloth will help smooth things down so that you no longer get the OL code.

This is an ambitious do-it-yourself project... as most appliance repairmen don't understand how this machine operates.
