Make sure the ground wire on the dishwasher has a really good connection.
Also the ground wire in the plug in receptacle.

I get a small electric shock each time i put my hand on the heart rate monitor on the left of the treadmill. Also happens when i h the inclune buttons on the left. Any suggestions?


Hi Pjd



Shocking problem!



Suspect that the treadmill is generating static electricity.

It is building up as you run... via the rubber mat.

Like the comb through the hair picking up tissue paper bits.

This is basically a Van De Graaff Generator.



Try attaching a wire from the machine chassis (metal) to a metal tap at your sink.

Do you still get a shock?



Not sure where you are and what your electric supply is.

I'm in Australia and our AC plugs have a third pin which is connected to our meter box which is then connected to an outside GROUND ROD.



Perhaps the AC power you are using has no ground or only a 2 pin connection. I which case I would add a three wire plug to the treadmill and the ground pin would connect to the treadmill's metal chassis by a screw or bolt.

Anti static spray may also help



Cheers

Connectingit hooking it up


The exact list of parts for a dishwasher hook-up would depend on the existing plumbing and electrical . There are three hook-ups needed; a hot water feed, typically from under the sink. A Tee is installed on the hot water line with a valve, and the hot water line to the dishwasher is connected to the valve. A drain line from the dishwasher is installed under the sink. It connects to the sink drain. The Electrical connection can be made using the appropriate electrical cord.
There are specific guidelines and considerations on how to connect the drain line under the sink, and what is required for the electrical hook-up. If you do a search on "how to install a dishwasher" you will be able to find extensive information.

Frigidaire fghd2433kf dishwasher. less than a year old. flashed PF. the power hasnt been off. now whole unit is dead. no lights or movement.


Hello bidness_67 please check inside of the sink cabinet look for a switch on the back wall. If there is one flip it. Many new building electrical codes require a switchto turn off power to the dishwasher. Sometimes when putting items in the cabinet the switch is hit unknowingly. If there is no switch check outlets (the GFCI ones)and press the reset then check the dishwasher.if not those two items check breaker box for a tripped breaker.

Any thing stainless which gets washed in my dishwasher comes out with rusty spots


Check the items are dishwasher proof, not just the items that are becoming tarnished but other items, main culprits ar cheese graters and garlic presses as these are not suitable for the d/w and will cause deposits on the other items.
There are 4 main reasons
1.Stainless items are left in a damp d/w with salt or acidic food residue.
2.Items are peft for long periods of time in a damp d/w after cycle has finished
3. undissolved powder (particularly if using quick wash) has come into contact with the cutlery.
4. different types of metal have come into contact with each other.
Hope this helps.

I would say it is an earthing problem, check over your earth wires, normally black and grey is neutral, check to make sure your earth wires are connected properly, and tight, better to completely turn appliance off by disconecting power plug while doing this, take care not to play around with the wires too much to prevent a nasty electric shock

The part by the sink causes water to flow all over the counter


Almost all dishwashers connect to the sink drain in one way or another. Many connect (via an Air Gap valve) to a garbage disposal.
If the "metal part" is at the rear of the sink, that is the top of the air gap. When water comes out of it, that means the drain is plugged.
If there is a garbage disposal, does water drain through it? Does the disposal work?
If there is no disposal, does water from the faucet run through the drain of each sink with no problem?
Thanks for answering these questions in a reply.

Water won't drain completly


Start by cleaning the drain hose. this is a common issue when food builds up in the drain hose. most of the time it is what is called the air gap. the little metal looking thing on your sink. take the cap off and then there is another small cap underneath usually white that you would push 2 tabs in to get it out and you would see any debris inside.
