TagakiLP Tankless Water Heater is less than 6 months old. I am getting error code 61. Opened the front had some moisture and dryed it with a hair dryer. Still getting code 61. Suggestions?

Tankless water heaters are the worst. Get a standard gas water heater, they are more reliable. The blower motor for the exhaust is not functioning, could be defective control board that controls the motor and coil temp. Once this starts the problem resurfaces again and again . I know the are space savers , supposed to be energy savers, and give you limitless hot water,....but they are not all that reliable . Most new homes are being built with them.. My preference is standard tank heater.

My Wascomat TD77 dryer keeps shutting down after 5 minutes and shows E 14. What is wrong with it.

Taken from the following:
This is for a different model, but the codes are likely the same.
It is related to non-ignition of gas. You may need to switch on your gas supply, or service your ignition coil.

Resetting gas error
When the ignition control fails to detect a flame a error code E14 is displayed. When this condition occurs, the gas valve is shut off and the ignition control must be reset manually.

Open the operating panel and press the gas reset button on the back of the user module board for one second.
See the picture of the gas reset button section 21
NOTE! When resetting the system the dryer must operate on a program with heat and when the heat indicator is on.

Error code
Error code 14 is a normal occurrence when first starting up a dryer, since air in the gas line must be purged.

Error code loc

Hi Amanda, thank you for your inquiry!

An error code E61 generally means that a heater relay failure has occurred. A qualified technician would pinpoint the problem by checking the wiring for both open and short circuit across heater relay(s). If the wiring isn't the issue, he/she would need to determine whether the problem rest with the main control board. It really could be a hit or miss calculation in parts so I would personally reach out to an experienced tech that will be able to identify the precise reason.

Error code E 61 shows and dryer shuts off after about 5 minutes.

Good Afternoon Melissa, thank you for your post!

Typically, an E61 error code is an indication of a short circuit. Let's try resetting the dryer by either unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker to the off position. It is important to wait approximately ten minutes and then turn the dryer on. If resetting the power does not correct the issue, your appliance could be experiencing a potential heater relay failure, control board issue or wiring problem. I would suggest contacting an experienced service technician to determine the precise cause.

Best regards!

Fault code f-01

The "F-1" error code means a failure occurred with the electronic controls.. This could mean that wires are broken, the electronics shorted out or a manufacturer's default error shut the washer down.

Prevention/Solution: The electronic control panel needs replacement. Find your dryer serial number and search for the part online.

This is a lengthy job that usually requires a repairman unless you have dealt with and repaired dryers before. If your dryer was purchased within the past couple of years, the dryer could be covered under the warranty.

Hope this helps (remember to rate this free answer).

I have an rca 61" dlp tv that is about 4 years

More than likely you have a power board that is failing. Since the TV is so old I doubt it is under warranty still. I estimate it would cost you anywhere between $300-400 to repair that problem so it may be time to switch to a newer LCD TV.

U-61 is a hardware error code. Usually means main board failure, however have found that a bad changer can also trigger that code since it connects directly to the main board.

Brand New Whirlpool Duet 9450 Error Code PF

This is a problem I've seen before, or something similar. I think you've got a bad connection on the neutral wire. Either in the plug or at the panel. Have electrician check the neutral wire back to the panel from the plug.

Kenmore Oasis dryer F40 error code

I had this same issue. My dryer would run and heat up but then stop and give me the f40. I measured all thermisters and everything was in range. The tech sheet stated that I needed to buy a new control board and I did. Same problem.
The solution was a loose connection on for p4. I took needle nose pliers and squeezed the connector to make it fit tight on the board and everything is working now.
Bottom line, expensive dryer with cheap connectors.
