Question about Microwave Ovens

I think I forgot to remove the knock out that fell into the disposal when I opened the dishwasher connection. There is nothing visible on the screen, but a steady grinding sound. Have I ruined the disposal, or is it something I can easily fix?

If you forgot to remove the plug from the inside of the disposal then you need to remove the disposal. Once removed you need to remove the rubber gasket on to so you can see in with no obstructions. Once that is done look around the wall where the blade is you will see the plug there on end. To remove from there you need to pry out with a screw driver to free it and get out. Then the disposal should be good.

The door on my GE advantium 120 fell off and I need to reattach it


take off the top vent cover , should be three screws ...hang the door provided nothing is broken off the door or the microwave.. after hanging put the vent cover back on. If your model has a little clip/postage size at the top hinge or if you think there is something missing at that location you may need that to keep the door from coming back off... It can be bought on line if your model needs it. some do and some don't if you found something near that area before the door fell off... then your model had one..

My dishwasher didn't drain the water out on the end of the clicle? What could be the problem?


Hello, Thank You for using FixYa. I will be helping you today.I would start where your drain line connects to the house drain,This is where most blocked drains happen. Disconnect the drain line and put it in a bucket and try to drain the dishwasher. Chances are its blocked somewhere you just have to find it.
Thank You and please ACCEPT my answer and Rate my answer if it was helpful..

Door got slammed and now it does nothing


There are two or three switches operated by the door latches in a microwave oven. When the door is slammed, they can be damaged or knocked out of adjustment. If the control board thinks the door is open, it won't allow the oven to operate. It's best to let a professional check the oven and adjust or replace the affected parts. Microwaves are hazardous devices, with lethal voltages exposed when the cover is off. Also, repairs involving door repairs can cause microwave leakage if they aren't done properly. But once the switches are operating properly your oven should be fine.

Where is the fuse located on a kitchaid microwave khms155l


It is located behind the key panel. UNPLUG THE UNIT FIRST.
Remove top grill (2 sinked screws on top)
Now remove the single screw on top of the key panel. Barefully slide out the keypad up and out. The smart people of kitchenaid put the dang fuse jammed between the fan housing and the right wall. Remove the entire bottom plate that holds the lights and such... I think 8 screws. Now remove 2 screws that hold down the fan housing. Now you going to have to use a screw driver and some wiggling to move the plastic housing out of the way enough to pop and slide out the fuse and replace. To test you can use a continuity tester and place it between the fuse. There is nothing visible on this fuse (250Volt 20A fuse Fast Acting I think) e.g. you can't see that the fuse is broken or not. Make sure no wires are pinched while putting it all back.

My dishwasher is not draining. How do I fix this please.


first open the access cover by the floor after turning off power,then remove the hose clamp on the discharge side of the pump and with a shallow pan catch any water that flows out of pump,then check the hose from the discharge side of the pump to the garbage disposal or where ever it drain to,if any of these are clogged the pump either wont drain or will not run to drain,then remove the 2 wires off the pump and check the motor windings for continuity,every unit is different so you need to get this motors resistance specs and check its resistance if its open replace it

I have a bosh dishwasher that has not drained of water and the tap light is red on the indicator board


Hello there:
Drain line/air gap A clog in the drain line or air gap (if there is one) is the usual reason that a dishwasher won't drain. Often the problem is at the point where the drain line attaches to the garbage disposer or household drain line. If you remove this line, you can clear any debris from the hose or hose connection. Be sure to reattach the hose before starting the dishwasher again. Pump Your dishwasher pump ejects the water. The pump is usually mounted directly to the motor, then attached to the bottom of the dishwasher. You can reach the pump from inside the dishwasher, but first you need to remove the lower rack, the spray arm, and the spray arm support. Look for an impeller--a round plastic fan blade-type of device that spins around. This is the wash impeller, which forces the water through the spray arm. Beneath the wash impeller is the drain impeller, which is similar in size and shape to the wash impeller. The drain impeller pushes the water toward the drain port. These components make up the pump. If any of the pump components are defective, you need to replace them. Drain valve and/or solenoid Many dishwashers use a drain valve with an electric solenoid. When electricity flows to the solenoid, the valve opens and diverts the water to the drain. Sometimes the solenoid, or the diverting lever, sticks and prevents the dishwasher from draining or filling properly. Try to free up the solenoid to lubricate the lever. Otherwise, you may have to replace the solenoid or pump assembly. With these systems, the motor always rotates in one direction. When it's energized, the drain valve diverts the water. Other dishwashers simply reverse the direction of the motor to drain the dishwasher. These units don't have a drain valve. Instead, there's a drain hose connected directly to the pump housing.
If the motor isn't turning or working, the unit won't drain. Some dishwashers are susceptible to getting stuck if you don't run them regularly. I you may need to manually spin the motor to free it up. If the motor is defective, you need to replace it. Timer Part of what the timer does is control the motor and drain valve. If the timer doesn't work properly, the water may not drain and you need to replace the timer. This problem is uncommon.

My modle # mmv4205aab lost all power, no display, no nothing. thank you


Hello- Unplug, open door, and remove screw holding display panel. Be careful, some wires may need to be unplugged. 20a fuse should be visible. If this fuse is bad- replace and address any power supply issues, such as age of wiring or circuit load-(other stuff plugged in) Hope this helps-ED

Dishwasher does not drain. Drain valve is very hard to work and has burned out the solenoid. Can you tell me exactly how to get these parts out of the dishwasher. Do I have to replace the pump to replace...


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. Dishwasher not draining properly or not draining at all issues can arise due to different reasons. Usually, these issues are related to kinked hoses, knocked out disposer unit (if connected with the dishwasher drain hose) & clogged drain pump & filter. Also note that dishwashers do not drain completely after a finished cycle and this is normal. Dishwashers are designed to leave some water in the unit to ensure that the heating element doesn’t overheat. If you suddenly begin to experience a large amount of water being retained in your dishwasher, you have a problem. Some of the most common reasons include that the drain hose isn’t working properly, the drain pump isn’t working correctly, or possibly there is a plumbing problem in your home’s drain lines.


First check whether the drain is not clogged or blocked and the line is not kinked. Check all the hoses for blockages & also clean the air gap. Has the disposer been replaced recently? If so, chances are the knockout is still in place. Simply remove the drain hose from the disposer, and knock out the plug. If the disposer has not been replaced, try removing the drain hose from the disposer and use a wet-dry vacuum (prepared for water, of course) to **** any water (and hopefully anything else) from the drain line. Then reconnect the hose, and test the unit. If you have checked the air gap and the drain hose and can’t locate the problem, then it is an issue with the drain pump of the dishwasher.


Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.


Thanks

Dishwasher doesn't drain


Check air gap located next to faucet line is likely plugged, especially if the machine is not used often, Try running 1/2 cup bleach through cylce about once every few months. Also if new garbage disposal was installed, make sure knock out was removed at d/w connect point.
