I have a Fujitsu ASTA18LCC with 3x operation and 4x timer light code.

This is an "outdoor temperature thermistor open/short" error.
An easy and cheap fix but you will have to buy the part from Fujitsu.

Fix the thermal fuse

It's a thermal fuse, (in this case it's a thermistor) and like any other fuse that has blown, it needs to be replaced. (The thermistor doesn't cost much... a few dollars at the most.) To replace the thermistor, the bottom of the waffle iron will have to be removed, and the thermistor de-soldered from the wiring (make sure that you note which way the thermistor connects to the wiring... you don't want to solder the new thermistor backwards!). Take the thermistor to an electronics shop and buy another identical thermistor. Solder the new thermistor to the wiring the same way the old thermistor came out. Reassemble the waffle iron, and don't leave the waffle iron on when you're not making waffles!

F01 code on a whirlpool dryer

F-1 code is a open thermistor on most modern dryers. These new fangled machines use electronics to monitor the heat. Instead of the old tried and true klixon with a bi-metal, they now use a fancy gizmo that changes in resistance with temp change. This resistance is monitored by the computer board. They call this part a Thermistor. The thermistor should read 12k ohms @ room temp or thereabouts.
Thermistor replacement is easy enough. Repair Clinic offers a video which shows exactly how to do it. THERMISTOR REPLACEMENT

My Kenmore Elite HE3 dryer keeps stopping indicating an E1 error. The model number is 110C82822100

Hi there,

Well the error E1 message indicates that the thermistor is defective and needs to be replaced.
Try unplugging the unit for a few minutes got rid of the error, but lately the temperature just hasn't been hot enough so the clothes don't dry. You must need to replace the thermistor for full working of your dryer. you may please follow the below steps to know how to change the thermistor -
1. Locate the thermistor on the top right hand side of your dryer. This will be a small platelet with a chip and wires coming out of it. Use your screwdriver to remove the two screws holding the thermistor on the unit.
2. Unplug the wires from the thermistor.
3. Plug the wires into your new thermistor. Replace the thermistor on the dryer and the screws holding it in place.
4. Replace the back panel of the dryer and plug your dryer back into the wall outlet.
5. Push your dryer back up against the wall and turn it on again.

HE3t kenmore dryer E1 error - have replaced the thermistor and checked the airflow out of the house and it still kicks the E1 error. The only time that it doesnt is when the dryer is on air dry

The E1 displayed indicates the thermistor is open and needs to be replaced.

The connections can be loose but the most likely cause of an E1 error is a bad thermistor.

If you're comfortable and confident in your do-it-yourself skills and have access to a volt/ohm meter you can check and replace this part yourself.

The thermistor is part number 8577274 and is available from the following

To access the thermistor see the image below. Remember to unplug the dryer from power first.
The thermistor will have a black and red/white wire on it.
You can check continuity across it with the meter and if the circuit is open then the thermistor needs to be replaced.,wkrsfrgsskrbttbxgtqsskgwtqkq,vi/wbsdwtgwgxwrgbbgsgs/1/1303472/5961857/image6767img-or.gif

DSS25KSRD SS GE Adora refrigerator- ice in tray melts and refreezes at the bottom of freezer. food defrosts also, seems like maybe defrost may be running too long and heating up the ice storage bin? Have...

It sounds like the # 4 thermistor is bad . You will have to remove the lower inside rear freezer panel ( 2 or 4 screws ) and on the top of the coils , you will see a 1 " long torpedo looking piece , clipped on , with 2 white wires going to it . Part number WR55X10025 . This thermistor , tells the maon control board , the temperature of the freezer coils ( evaporator ) and when to defrost and when to stop defrosting and turn the compressor back on . There is also a defrost thermostat which cuts the heater off to keep from over heating , but I do not believe this is part of your problem . You should also replace the # 5 thermistor , located behind the oval grill , mounted on the lower right side of the freezer . This thermistor , tells the main control board , the temperature of the freezer section .

Uline ice maker clr2060- makes ice continuously, would overflow and ice build up on condenser.

This is a problem when the thermistor in your icebin is not being satisfied.Now there is a break in the serial number to find out if you have a thermistor or a mechanical thermostat. If the serial number is before 03 (first 2 digits is the year)and the 2 digits between the dashes is 11(the month) the replace the bin thermostat. If newer then you need to replace board and thermistors.

Open Thermistor on U-Line

It might be a bad thermistor. I would need the exact model number. It could be a open harness as well.
