Blades are bound up. Unplug the unit under the sink and using an allen wrench (one should have come with the unit, looks like a bent rod with 8 sides on it), insert it into the manual turn fixture on the bottom center of the ISE. Use this to turn the unit by hand to see if you can free it. If you can free it, see if you can find something inside the sink drain that might have caused the blades to bind up. Remove any debris and reset the circuit breaker, a small button, on the bottom of the unit as well. Also, the ISE needs to hang straight down below the sink. If it is pulled one way or another due to the way it is hooked to the plumbing, the blades may bind up and keep from running.

My Lennox ac is making a very loud buzzing sound and the fan blades are not turning. We replaced the dual capacitor and that seemed to fix the problem for a couple of days, now it's doing the same...


Fan motor is probably bad, if it is under 5 years old the parts are under warranty. Do not run the unit for very long without the fan working as it can damage the compressor.

I have a Maytag LSE1000. The dryer and washer each have an issue at the moment. The dryer intermittently won't engage when it is turned in. When you press the "regular" button to start it,...


I really have NO idea what's causing your Maytags to misbehave, BUT I can tell you that the Maytag service centers have always been very accommodating when I've called about problems with dishwashers, dryers, and washing machines.They have explained the construction of the appliance and even told me the type of tools I needed to make repairs! If you still have your owner's manual, the toll free number should be in there. I hope this helps!

Hi, my1999 mercury mystique sunroof will tilt but won't open. It makes a buzzing noise when I try. Is it a fuse or what?


If the fuse is bad you won't hear the actuator buzzing. Sounds like something has stripped or broke.
