    I still have the same problem with that machine and now I have another machine with exactly the same fault code (00101000) and all I have done to both these machines is striped them down to put bearings and seals in them.Both machines worked perfectly fine before hand, what am I doing wrong?
    I know for a fact it is not in the bowl itself as the one I''m working on at present did not need new bearings so I never had to pull it apart,so it has to be something to do with the wiring harness as I have the wires placed in the correct position on the stater and all the other wiring can only go one way,any ideas?


    40. (00101000) Phase 1 to 5 - Bowl Dis-Engaged Fault
    While carrying out a bowl check, the Display module has found that the bowl is not engaged
    even though the pressure sensor indicates that the bowl is empty. The Motor Controller
    continues to check for 2 minutes after which time the display this fault. If restart is on this
    fault can take up to 4 hours to diagnose. The first two areas to check are the clutch and the
    pressure tube. If these two appear correct, then the fault could be in the pressure transducer in
    the Motor Controller.
    Primary Source - Suds
    Action - Too many suds, too much detergent has been used. Restart product when suds have
    disappeared, or select a deep rinse option.
    Secondary Source - Mechanical
    Action
    1. Check that there are no clothes or other foreign objects preventing the clutch from reengaging.
    2. Next check that the pressure tube has not come off and that it is not kinked.
    Tertiary Source - Motor Controller. (Display Module Phase 1).
    Action - Replace Motor Controller (Display Module Phase 1), if the above check out without

Hi.

I quote from GW609 service manual:

"If the display module has just been inserted into console housing, check that the two size switch plungers accurately locate onto the console housing.
If the fault appeared during normal operations, check the size switch or deplace display module.
If the motor control module has been changed from one size machine to another, the the size switch settings in the memory will have to be reset. This is done by entering and exiting the Option Adjustment mode. Push and hold "START/PAUSE", then push power button."


Try entering and exiting the Option Adjustment mode, then push and hold "START/PAUSE", then push power button.

If that does not work, things that can jam the control board are pump and pump wiring problems, wiring to motor, wet or shorted to ground lid switch wiring, wet or shorted OOB switch wiring, short circuiton valves wiring , blown components on pcbs (caps, diodes and resistors).

As first thing check the fuse on main PCB for continuity (read Ohms after disconnecting main power). If that keeps blowing there is a short somewhere. Water and sealing problems may cause shorts.

Hi My Fisher & Paykel Model: E522B starts beeping for no reason at random times. When I press the cooler/warmer settings it stops but will start beeping again randomly at a later time. Please...


Hi - I believe the problem is the power module located on the rear of the machine. I have not done work on F&Paykels for a long time.

Whats happenning is the controls is picking up an error with the input power supply, the modules perhaps got an intyermittent issue.

Try this turn your fridge off & back on again - the E522B will start to beep indicating the lose of power which is exactly whats happening to the unit at the moment, to eliminate the beeps you reset with the temp button on the inside.

ST3250820A - hard disk locked


Get a dos program called F-disk ... put the floppy into your floppy drive and boot your computer. Delete the partitian, format the drive and you will be good to go.

Maybe you can use the software that came with the Seagate ... if not, you can download it at Seagate.

97 blazer wont engage 4 wheel drive dash lights switch but no hi or low checked two fuses on panel inside door


3 button or 4 button. If 3 button remove the pass side kick panal and diconnect the module you see there with the key on. 3 or 4 button the trucks are known for water leaks and they fill the module(3 or 4 button module are in the same place) causing all kinds of problems. What has happened to my jimmy same year was the front diff actuator ( under the battery tray) was full of transmission oil. I worked at a gm dealer as a trans tech. The front diff actuator had blown a hole in it. I have to replaced the 4wd vac switch on top of the transfer case that was where I got the oil from, also the actuator and the vacume ball behind the abs motor pack as it to was full of oil. if lucky you will not have to change your hvac control head.

DISCOVERY II 1999


9 times out of 10 it is the ABS modulator for the disco II's. That being said, i hope you're sitting down...only a LR shop or a shop with auto logic can fix it and it's gonna cost you... A new modulator costs around 2k. if you can get the dealer to install a remanufactured one, it will cost you around 700 for the part and about 3-4 hours of labor.
