An earth fault on the motor or heater can cause this. try the heater first disconnecting it and seeing if the machine can get past the fill stage .

GE spacemaker microwave turns off during cooking and display goes black


Step 1:


Door Switch




If the microwave runs for a few seconds and then shuts off, a door switch might have failed intermittently. Check each of the door switches for any signs of overheating, arcing, or burning. Also check each of them for continuity. Replace any of the switches that is visibly damaged or that only has continuity intermittently

Step 2:

Main Control Board




If the microwave runs for a few seconds and stops there may be a short circuit in the main control board. Check other components first, these boards are often misdiagnosed.


Touchpad and Control Panel




If the microwave runs for a few seconds and stops the touchpad and control panel might be defective. There are several other components that can cause this problem, be sure to check any other components before replacing this board.

Touchpad




If the microwave runs for a few seconds and stops the touchpad might be at fault. This is not common. Generally speaking, if the microwave display is working and some of the buttons respond correctly but some don't, the problem is with the touchpad.

High Voltage Transformer




If the microwave runs for a few seconds and stops the high voltage transformer might have an intermittent short. This is not common. Check other components related to the microwave symptom first.

Thermostat




If the microwave runs for a few seconds and stops the thermostat might be defective. Watch our video on testing thermostat

I have a maytag Neptune NDE3000AYW and the dryer turns on, runs for a few seconds and stops. took it apart and cleaned all the lint and dust. after a while it will run again for a few seconds and stop. ...


Check the door switch. It may be at fault here. Open the door and hold the switch by hand and start the dryer. The switch should have a firm resistance to it when you push it. If you should find this bad, here is the replacement switch. If the switch is ok, then the motor is bad. Here is the motor to order.

Keep me posted!

My Zanussi ZWD 1470W won't fill up with water. I


Story could be lengthly so in brief, check to see if drain pump is not blocked and if door latch is functioning correctly.(use a multimeter if you can). If it all measures out as good, then your control is faulty. Does the water fill up to the correct level when you start the cycle? Does the motor hum when trying to run. If so check the capacitor.

Hi,

Did you fix this problem? We have the same with Zanussi ZWD 1472 W. It takes some water and stops after 2 minutes. We need to shut machine down and fill water manually. It works fine then.

At start of cycle, washer drum turns one direction for a few seconds,then spins in other direction for a few seconds and then stops. Next I hear a short buzzer coming from the door area repeat a few times....


There are 4 common trouble makers to consider.
One is the door switch, it can open circuit and stop the washer.
Second is water pressure. If the water pressure is low/poor, the washer will start to fill and then shut off. Check and clean the fill valve entrance screens and also check for any washer screens on either end of the fill hoses.
The third is possibly the most common trouble maker for this type of a complaint. The fuse blows on the motor control board This board can be found on the front bottom on the right side. The motor control board must be replaced when the fuse has blown. Most times now the motor control board is .
The fourth is a bad start switch, sometimes the contacts in the start switch will arc and burn causing starting up problems.

hope this helps.

F-7 display after running for a few seconds(without cooking)


Your subject line got cut off: "F-7 display after running for a few seconds(without..."

Are you saying that it runs for a few seconds without heating, then it shows you F7 and stops?

If not, please reply back here with more details.

If so, this is usually caused by either a bad door switch, a loose door switch mount, or a problem on the control panel.

Even though a door switch clicks, it may still be bad inside. Its continuity must be checked.

Door switch or mount trouble can be caused by slamming the door or by opening the door while it's cooking without hitting the Stop pad first.

There are plastic mounts inside the microwave which hold the door switches and onto which the door latches lock when you close the door.

The screws on these mounts may be loose. If they get too loose, the switches will not be activated properly.

Sometimes it's a broken tab on the switch holder, allowing the switch to rotate just out of position. Other times, it's a broken tab on the switch holder, allowing the switch to rotate just out of position. This tab can be hard to see, since it is under the bottom edge of the switch.

If you or someone you know decide to look into it, we have critical information on safety, disassembly and door switches at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa:.

You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.

If you think the problem is on the control panel, we repair these nationwide by mail for $39.95 postpaid in most cases.

Please reply back here if you still need help.

We're happy to help and we appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.
