Question about Kenmore Elite Oasis 27052 Top Load Washer

1 Answer

Originally, the fron panel buttons did make contact with the pcb behind it. I ordered a new front panel. I removed the original control board from the old front panel. Before installing the control board in the new front panel, I connected it to the control box to ensure it still worked. Now the machine does not power up and the speaker emits a pattern of beeps. What does the pattern mean and how do I get a service manual for this machine? Thanks. --smiley.

Start button has broken, literally

Possibly. Most control boards (PCB,s) have touch switches on them and are operated by a plastic button which acts directly on the switch. If the button breaks, it cannot push onto the switch. I would say to have a close look at the PCB to see if there are any screws or clips which hold it in place to the front fascia. The PCB normally holds the button in its position. Make sure the machine is UNPLUGGED before you play with it and DO NOT try to operate it with the power on and by pressing the switches on the PCB. Some parts of the board will be low voltage but other areas of it will be full mains voltage.

Volume does not work with remote

Tries take the remote aparts,if can,some u can't they're tighten and latches from the inside.Take a rag soak it with some rubbing achahol and clean the PCB board and the inner rubbers plastics knobs on the sheet of rubber plastics that make coonntact to the PCB board.U tries take out the battery awhile and put in a brand new set of battery,remote might work for the volume button again.If not the volume control pad rubber knobe inner plastic pad that press down on the circuit board might be worn out or not making good contact anymore to the PCB circuit board.Or the remote control CPU chip are slowly shorting out the first command it take out was ur remote volume control functions.Try website like to buy another the tv original remote.

I have a broken open/close button. Can the button be replaced, or do I need to replace the whole PCB?

you need to replace a switch, which is behind the plastic button and mounted on the PCB

Sharp R-24ST Microwave - Sticking START button

I had the same problem some years ago, and in my view it is caused by a design fault. There's a circuit board behind the front panel with tiny tactile switches that get pressed by the front panel buttons. But the **** design is that the switches aren't located behind the buttons, so the "engineering solution" that Sharp has used is to mount each of the buttons on a framework so that a sticky out bit from the button presses the appropriate switch. The problem is that the framework is made of plastic and so will eventually give way. Some 5 years ago I opened up my microwave and repaired the framework. When it went again yesterday, it was too far gone to repair. I could purchase a spare button panel from one of the spares suppliers, but for some GBP 8 or so.

Wanting an instant solution, I went a bit further. I removed the switches and soldered short trailing leads to their contacts. I glued (with epoxy) the switches back onto the circuit board so that they were directly behind the buttons, and then soldered the trailing leads from each switch back to the original switch locations. This meant redrilling the holes for one switch as the original holes were now obscured. I then cut off the three buttons from their framework (it was just the Stop, Start and Power level buttons as we never use the others) and trimmed off any projections to make them flush on the back. I filled the hollow of the button with modelling clay, and then expoxied a thin (2mm) layer of rubber on the back. When re-assembled, the buttons simply float in the hole in the front panel, but don't fall out as the switch is just behind them. They now work better than ever before, as they're pressing directly on the switch, rather than indirectly.

For disassembly (from memory), I removed the six or so screws holding on the main steel cover (at the sides and on the rear). There was one screw inside the casing securing the front panel assembly which, when removed, allowed the front panel assembly to be removed by lifting slightly and then pulling out. Disconnect the cable connectors (taking care to label where the yellow & red power connectors go. On the front panel assembley there are two circuit boards on top of each other. Remove the top one and the connector from it to the bottom one. The bottom circuit board is screwed in with 4 screws. Once the bottom board is removed, the button panel lifts out and you're ready to consider whether you're up to my repair method or whether you want to order a new button panel.

It may have taken me a while to complete this, but it gave me the satisfaction of a repair with no parts required, and the confidence that it will last, and can be tweaked if required. So my R24ST lives again!

Yes Rick
Before you order the button,open the controll panel by removing the two skrews at both sides of the copier,plug out the wiring to the copier,and remove the conroll panel pcb bord from the front panel.
I normally change the start mickroswitch with one of the microswitches that I dont use on the controll panel.Remove it by soldering it out and put it back the same way it was installed in the over possition.
You have to clean the button and alongside the hole were the button fit into.Dust can cause the button to become stickey.
If you dont want to solder the buttons you can also replace the contol panel pcb assy.

f06 is an error pertaining to the motor control board loacated behind the lower acess panel mounted in the left fron corner, first check for loose wire connection, sometimes alot of water/moisture will trip the control, remove and refit the wire harness leading to the control a few times and look for physiacal damage to board as well.

As mentioned, I have got to the bottom of this without Onkyo's help. I replaced the offending component, which is a 5.5V 0.1F backup capacitor. This is mounted on the front PCB, just below the right hand side of the display. It is a right pain to get to. Here briefly is what to do:
1: Unplug (really important!), remove top cover.
2: Undo three screws underneath front panel edge, pull off volume and tone knobs, and gently pull off metal front panel from the bottom, which is held with sticky tape inside.
3: Undo five screws from plastic front panel and free it. You will now have limited access to the front panel PCB and audio processor PCB.
4: Cut a few black cable ties as required to gain better access to front PCBs, and unplug ribbon cable from right hand side. It may be helpful to undo the nut and so release the volume control encoder.
5: Still struggling with poor access, release the standoffs from the audio processor PCB and unplug its ribbon cable. You have to remove the audio processor PCB in order to get to the screws under it. You may want to remove the PCB for holding the mains switch.
6: Now with some kind of access to the whole of the front panel PCB, undo 10,000 screws which secure it to the black plastic front panel.
7: Now with limited access to the front side of the front panel PCB, locate the capacitor, towards the right hand side of the display, just beneath it. Note the polarity; the negative terminal goes to the left/top pcb land, positive to the bottom/right. Desolder and replace this component. HINT: Make life easier for next time and mount the new part on the REAR of the PCB, so now negative will be down. Care with polarity!
8: Reassemble carefully. Make sure that the volume control encoder metal clasps are tight as they come apart easily. Fit new cable ties in original locations (important to prevent hum pickup).

The parts you will require then are about 6 nylon cable ties, and a 0.1F 5.5V capacitor. I had to make do with a 0.047F part because it was all I had to hand and I didn't want the machine in bits while I ordered one. Many of these components today are radial PCB mounting, which are not an ideal fit but could be used at a push. If you can get a vertically mounted one, that would be better. The nearest I can readily find is from RS Components item 377-350 (Panasonic EECS0HD104V), and the leads on this could doubtless be re-jigged to fit.
