The door/tray will not open.

The tray won't come out. You can hear it click, but nothing happens We took it apart and it will open as long as the metal plate is off.

Press the open button, and quickly lift the unit 1 inch and drop it. This overcomes the strength of the magnet and allows the door to open.

I had the exact same problem. There is a centering fixture above the spindle in the drive, that suspends from the metal plate. The fixture has a couple of metal disks in the center, one of them is a magnet. What I found was that the magnet was too strong, holding onto the spindle, preventing the spindle from dropping so that the tray could eject. The problem probably exists with the force applied to drop the spindle, but I didn't know how to fix that. I put several layers of clear tape on the magnet, to reduce its pull. Trimmed the tape as close as possible to the size of the magnet, to keep it balanced; the magnet turns with the spindle. Tray now opens.

Cd tray eject button doesn t work - paper clip trick doesn't help


the "paper clip trick" isn't a trick. It is a MANUAL way to open the door far enough to pull it open and remove the contents. Straighten out the clip. Place it through the tiny hole just above the eject button. Be sure to push it straight in. When you feel resistance, push HARD. the door should open about a halt inch and allow you pull it all the open. It will not open automatically from a paper clip.

Phaser 7750 Not Printing, No Error codes, Fuser Wont Warm Up, Wont Detect Open Trays or Doors


It sounds like one of the cover or tray sensors is not working correctly. Check the actuator on the fuser cover, sometimes these break off so the printer thinks the cover is still open. If that seems ok and you have a lower tray deck unplug it to eliminate them as the cause.

Won't work. No service code.


the first things to check is the door switch,open the door and push in the switch,if it doesn\'t click when pushed in the switch is bad,next thing to check is the belt,on some models there\'s a switch on the pulley assy. if there isn\'t any tension on the pulley the dryer won\'t start.if you need more help i need the model number off of the dryer,open the door and lolook around the opening where you put the clothes in and you\'ll see a tag with the model number,if the dryer hasn\'t been taken apart and cleaned out the thermal fuse could have popped,if the dryer gets to hot inside from a blocked vent line or the duct that the lint filter slides into is blocked the fuse will pop and it\'s non resetable.

Maytag dryer 2003 was working great I took one dried load out put another in and started the dryer. Working just fine then I found a wet garment that I dropped so I opened dryer door added this item...


When your dryer won't start, it could be a number of problems from a broken door latch or start switch to an exhaust duct blocked by lint. It could even be a tripped circuit breaker or blown fuse.

The first step in troubleshooting any electrical appliance is to ensure that it is plugged in and receiving power. While dryer plugs do not come loose easily, it can happen.

For more troubleshooting tips, read Dryer won't start for possible causes, signs to look for and things you can do. I hope this helps!

Go Video DV 2150 - DVD door won't open at all. You can hear a mechanism working behind the closed door, but nothing happens and the door remains shut. Any advice??


There is a small belt under the loading tray which would have gone slack ( loose ) and the sound you hear is it slipping on the motor pulley. If you are confident you can remove the mechanism and turn it upside down and access this belt. Dismantle only if you can get the spare belt or your efforts will be in vain.

Kenmore Elite HE3t Front Load Washer leak from dispenser


I was just about to call the service teck when I decided I shouldn't be this stupid and try and fix it myself.

I took the tray out and looked in with a flashlight.
Saw nothing.
Cleaned the tray and then checked the drainage hole inside the opening where the tray normally feeds the machine the soap.

I found a inside of the liquid XXXKing laundry cap partially blocking the drain.

Took it out and works fine.

Dryer Won't Start


Make sure it has power. Then:Check the door switch. A little lever sticking down through top right of door opening. If it is not there you will need new door switch(sometimes the little lever breaks off). If it is there and does not click when you press it in you need a new door switch. if it clicks when you close the door then you have a bad thermal fuse.The thermal fuse is found by taking the back of the dryer off. The fuse is an oblong white plastic piece with 2 wires attached.

Open tray error on xbox 360


Mine had the same problem. On mine the spindle wasn't turning the game. It kept trying to then quit and said "Open Tray". The warranty was out so I took it apart opened the dvd drive and took apart the spindle. The grease in the spindle was black, I guess from all the heat. Cleaned it out and put some high temperature grease on spindle shaft and in the hole. It now spins with ease. There are videos on youtube on how to take apart the xbox and to take apart the dvd drive and spindle. Just pay close attention at how tight the screws the hold the spindle down are.I hope this helps

DVD Eject tray stuck


I took a stake knife from the kitchen and pried open the tray door as I hit the eject button this got it to open, I then cycled eject and close, eject close a few times and this did the trick, I even played a DVD and that worked fine also. I had the problem with the tray not opening, and the display would read OPEN when I hit eject and I could hear it trying to open. So I wanted to make sure the tray wasn't just stuck or wedged before I took the system apart and looked for sripped out plastic gears or the belt being broken. GoodLuck rayruiz10@yahoo.com
