Hi

Try plugging and unplugging the unit and see if it helps. However the lids on dish drawers are pulled down and sealed by lid activators. There are two types, the screw type and the magnetic solenoid type. the reason your draw gets stuck is your lid activator is not releasing. There are 2 reasons for this 1st- 1 or both activators are faulty. 2nd the lid activator control board is faulty, which is located under the bottom drawer. Pull the draw out and see if u can see if the lid is down on one side or both sides.

Let us know if you have something more to ask else please accept the solution.
Thanks for contacting fixya.com

Why is the bottom drawer stuck?


Is this a Fisher Paykel Dishdrawer?
If so, the lid is likely not returning properly to the upmost position.

Caused by faulty lid actuators, easily fixed by replacing them.

Try not to open and close forcefully as it will damage the rubber seal (built into the lid), then you will also have to replace the lid.

Fisher Paykel drawer stuck closed how to fix.


Turn the mains power off and force pull the drawer slowly.. No jerky movements. The lid seal is stuck. Once open, check for any damage to lid seal by running fingers on the underside of the top of cabinet where the drawer slides in. Turn mains power back on. If the drawer does not slide back in then it is likely the lid seal actuator motor is stuck or power to motor has failed. Will need technician involvement to fix. If lid seal looks torn then it will need to be replace. Can cause leaks and further faults otherwise.

Sharp CD-BA2100 cd drawer won't turn or close.


Take the 4 screws out of the top, lift the CD drawer out, disconnect the two wire harnesses, take the top off, lift the 3 disc tray out, then force the drawer open and closed a few times until it slides freely. Put it back together and it may or may not work. Worked for me.

Drawer wont slide and dishwasher does not work


please provide the model number of the dishwasher so that I can identify the type of lid seal it is using. Usually the lid seal actuator motors are stuck and prevent drawer from opening. You could force it open with a slight tug. Otherwise turn the mains power off and on and see if it makes any difference. Need to check the lid seals for damage otherwise it may leak in future and cause flood switch to trip.

Top drawer of my 8yr old fisher paykel dishwasher got stuck opening and now cant get it back in , botom drawer works but no power to top drawer can it be fixed ?


Not sure if your dishwasher problem has been fixed yet.

The lid seal actuator motors on the top drawer are stuck due to lack of power and therefore you cannot close the drawer. Don't try to force it in as this will cause damage.

First thing to do is to restore power to the drawer. The power comes from the filter board sitting at the base of the dishwasher. You will have to disconnect power to the dishwasher and get both the drawers out. This will give you access to the power filter board.

Refer item 15 in this diagram. It is likely the board is faulty and it supplies the lid seal actuator motor power to both drawers. (separate connections).

You have to take the front cover of each drawer out to remove the drawers from the rails. But be careful not to damage the cable and hose when pulling out. Keep a chair or something next to dishwasher to hold the top drawer.

Once you fix the filter board and restore power to actuator motors, push the lid seal up by hand to make sure it does not block the lid.
Hope this fixes the problem.

Dvd player seems to be stuck when loading dvd wont go any further


On the front of your DV player, there is a compartment where the DV is placed. Check to see if there is a little hole in the front of that compartment. If there is, take a paper clip and expand the ends. Place the end of the paper clip in the hole and move it around and into the hole. This should release the compartment drawer to open.
If the drawer is stuck- half way out, do not force. There is a small band that directs the opening and closing. Forcing it will break it. If this has not helped, relate to the manual.
Hope this has helped. Dana
