Question about Hotpoint Microwave Ovens

1 Answer

Having just taken delivery of hotpoint ultima wmd740 washing machine I find after programming in and confirming the language selection the programme selected works perfectly. The problem I cannot understand where I am going wrong is when I push on/off button the indicator panel goes blank as it should but after a period of time anywhere from 30 minutes to 4hours the machine will turn itself on again with a beep and be back at the language selector. What am I missing so as not to get this sorted

Somehow in the process of selecting the language, the new selection isn't being "set", and that's usually by hitting some button to change it permanently. Refer to the manual and review your steps. It's entirely possible that the manual is erroneous, and an extra button will have to be pushed to seal it.

  • Same problem here
    When moving the machine into the house the language was accidentally changed to something I can only guess is Czech. Does anyone know how to reset the machine or change the language back to English?

    Many many thanks.

  • RE: language problems
    You need to press the bottons stated on the manaual for a few good seconds until it beeps. Once it beeps will turn off, once you turn it back on you can then change the language to English again.
Perhaps that will help.
Anyway, good luck, thanks for using FixYa, and hope this helps.

A mains surge may have taken out the fuse. To find the fuse, remove it from the mains, remove the outer cover and follow where the power cable enters the case. There will be a PCBoard with a fuse on it.
Always replace the fuse with one of exactly the same type and value!

DRUM MOTOR NOT WORKING TO TURN DRUM. PROGRAMMER OPERATING OK AND ALSO PUMP MOTOR. HOT AND COLD WATER FILLING MACHINE OK AND EMPTYING OK.IT WOULD SEEM TO BE THE MOTOR AT FAULT? THE MACHINE IS 6 YEARS...


Your question was head "microwave ovens" but I think you are talking about a washing machine.

Replacing the motor is a matter of judgement as to the reliability of the machine generally.

If this is the first time the machine has failed in 6 years, then I would have the motor replaced.

If there have been a series of faults, then replace then machine.

(Incidentally I assume that you checked the drive belt).

When i put it on i put the washing in then set it to programme then it fills up with water then makes a grinding noise it does not make the noise when it spins


The drum bearing is worn. A replacement will sort that out. They are not to bad to fit. Remove the back panel, put some thick cloth or cardboard on the floor and put the machine face down (after draining the filter and drum of water!). All will reveal itself when the belt is removed and the pulley is taken off with a tripod type puller. Remove the old bearing from the shaft and housing and replace with the replacement one. Bearings are readily available from online stockists are are fairly inexpensive.
Hope that helped.

The options for language selection will be detailed in the setup menu in the manual. German and English are similar enough to work out the steps to return it to English. A manual can usually be acquired from the manufacturers website, or from download sites. (Internet search your brand and model number).:::Spiceweasel.au.
