Frigidaire dish washer FDB4315LFo Error code uo


You are experiencing a vent issue - While in wash cycle, Main Control Board does not receive signal from vent assembly that vent plunger is closed. Plunger status is sensed with optical sensor in vent assembly. Check wiring between vent assembly and Main Control Board. If wiring correct, replace vent assembly. If error still exist, replace Main Control Board.

How do I replace the water line going to the water valve assembly


That sounds favourite! Let me know how you get on. Is the tubing you have left long enough? And has it gone brittle? In which case it might be a good idea to replace it at the same time as the valve

My Bosch pressure washer has power and the water is flowing through the machine, but no high pressure?


It would take a small book to explain how those things work but I'll try to cut it down some. Most have three pistons in the bottom of the pump that are operated by a cam that looks like a wavy pancake. As the waves pass over the spring loaded pumps, which is actually a plunger, it presses it down and pumps. Usually each pump has three plungers. If you tackel it yourself be careful when you disamble it and remember how it came apart, especially the "O" rings. That is more than likely where you're loosing pressure, its by - passing your plungers. Replace the "O" rings and fabric washers if it has any and make sure the cam is not worn or warped. There's one other thing that keeps the pump from working and I hope this is whats wrong with yours. The cam I spoke of is attached to the crankshaft with a little pin like the fly wheel on a push mower. If that has shered off you can just replace it and go on. It a pretty good job and I can't say enough about how important it is to watch where things are as you disamble it. also look fragments of "O" rings in the bottom of the plunger assembly. Go onto the internet and see if you can find a rebuild kit for it. I've never looked for one but there is probably somebody out there that makes rebuild kits for those rigs. Hope this helps, this is from my own experience with about a dozen of them, all worked but one and we couldn't get the motor started on it. dhgill1949

My daughter has a 2000 Dodge Caravan 3.8..Its got no pressure in the fuel rail..First i replaced the fuel filter,,Then put in used pump..still nothing..So i returned it and got another pump.Still no...


When you turn on the ignition to start vehicle can you hear a buzzing sound coming from the rear of the vehicle. That sound is the fuel pump pressurizing the fuel system. If you do not hear that noise then the pump is not working. Check fuel pump connection for power, if no power check fuse, relay and ground

Sounds like either the side protector plate is not secure, or the tamping unit is miss aligned. Otherwise just check the protector plate is in the correct place

Every French press i have bought works well the first couple of times then the screen on the press bends and creates air pocket which when pressing explodes coffee grinds and hot water everywhere!


The trick with any manual French Press coffee maker is to very slowly press the plunger down, after you've allowed the ground coffee to steep/brew for the time you prefer.

I've got an older French Press carafe and had my share of "bent" screens from being too quick when pressing. I finally learned that the slower I pressed the better the unit would survive and the better quality of coffee I'd get as a result.

French Press coffee is not a quick process, what with the boiling water and fresh ground coffee beans and the steeping/brewing dwell time needed to get the hot water infused with the coffee and the very slow pressing filtering process needed to extract the full flavor of the coffee from the ground coffee and water.

Take your time in pressing your coffee and enjoy the great, fresh taste from your efforts.

Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

94 jimmy turns but wont start, I replaced the fuel pump and


see if your getting fuel to the top, find the fuel rail on the top of the motor you will see a bleeder valve push in the the little serator valve and see if fuel comes out. if not the pressure regulator could be bad. if none there take the filter loose on the pump side and see if fuel comes out there. i believe this has the spider type injector setup on it and this could be bad.

Won't start


82059263 The [PG] starter motors are [non-]repairable starter motors. They have pole pieces that are arranged around the armature within the starter housing. When the solenoid windings are energized, the pull-in winding circuit is completed to ground through the starter motor. The hold-in winding circuit is completed to ground through the solenoid. The windings work together magnetically to pull in and hold in the plunger. The plunger moves the shift lever. This action causes the starter drive assembly to rotate on the armature shaft spline as it engages with the flywheel ring gear on the engine. At the same time, the plunger closes the solenoid switch contacts in the starter solenoid. Full battery voltage is then applied directly to the starter motor and it cranks the engine.

As soon as the solenoid switch contacts close, current stops flowing thorough the pull-in winding as battery voltage is now applied to both ends of the windings. The hold-in winding remains energized; its magnetic field is strong enough to hold the plunger, shift lever, starter drive assembly, and solenoid switch contacts in place to continue cranking the engine. When the engine starts, the pinion gear overrun protects the armature from excessive speed until the switch is opened.

When the ignition switch is released from the START position, crank voltage is removed from the starter solenoid S terminal. Current flows from the motor contacts through both windings to ground at the end of the hold-in winding. However, the direction of the current flow through the pull-in winding is now in the opposite direction of the current flow when the winding was first energized.

The magnetic fields of the pull-in and hold-in windings now oppose one another. This action of the windings, along with the help of the return spring, cause the starter drive assembly to disengage and the solenoid switch contacts to open simultaneously. As soon as the contacts open, the starter motor is turned off.


Here is the wiring circuit for the NEUTRAL SAFETY SWITCH which is what I believe to be your problem, do the reverse lights come on when the keky is ON and the transmission selector is in REVERSE? IF NOT you have a renge selector problem.
if you find this information helpful please give me a good rating and please contact me if you need any further assistance.
Thank you, Randy
