A plastic lid melted on the coil, still smells like "melted wax", seems clean, what can I do?


You will probably have to replace the heating coil in the bottom of the dishwasher to get rid of the smell. The coils aren't that expensive and replacing them is an easy job. Hardest part is getting the dishwasher out from under the counter to do it.

No control panel lites. Washer started then stopped as if power shut off.


Hello John - Let's try resetting the dishwasher by either unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker to the off position. It is important to wait roughly ten minutes and then turn on the unit. Confirm that the door is properly latched and try selecting a cycle. If resetting the power does not correct the issue, it could potentially mean a number of things: a potential wiring failure, damaged cord, faulty door latch assembly or control board. Because it could be a number of any one of several underlying causes, I would recommend contacting a professional to properly diagnose and repair the unit.

Our dishwasher started smelling like something is burning, I turned it off straight away, no visible smoke or anything but it hasn't been cleaning very well for a while now. Are these the death throes? Or...


Make sure there isn't any plastic on the heating element. Also check to see if there is any evidence of previously melted plastic. If it smells like plastic burning & you aren't using any heated options, cut the power & call for service.

In regards to the Home Touch Steamer: I turned it on and then noticed a burnt plastic smell about 30 seconds later. I looked down and the base of the steamer was sparking inside the plastic covering and...


Sorry to hear that! The burnt plastic smell indicates that the element over heated to a point that the heat radiation melted the substance. The internal heating element has shorted out and took with it vital accessories necessary for normal function of the steamer. Too many parts have become inoperative and the cost of repair is excessive. The only solution is to replace the streamer. Do not plug the defective unit into a live power outlet for safety reasons.

Third break light works but other two dont


What this eliminated here from your list of problems is the brake light switch - if that failed, all 3 brake lites would be ON all the time, or OFF all the time. Since your 3rd lite works, the problem is in wiring from the one lite (that doesnt work) to the other. The wire to both nonfunctional lites will come from one lite to the other (you must remove the plastic trunk panels and trace the wires). The terminal lite will have just 2 wires (its not the problem). The problem will be in the lite that's been daisy-chained to the other light (the one with 4 wires (2 in, 2 out to the other lite)).
Check the suspected light socket and wires for old repairs that have corroded/fallen off (dont laugh - I've seen it), and general corrosion (the usual culprit). Whatever you find, replacing the sockets for the lite bulbs costs just a few dollars at the parts stores --- if you cant solder wires, use crimp unions (or small wire nuts) and E-tape over them to keep out the weather. The pros will solder (the wires) and heat-shrink the connections to the new sockets. Heat shrink is a type of tubing that shrinks under heat of a heat gun and when properly done, keeps out the moisture.

I have a fahrenheat lfp 6152 heater smells like plastic buening and is very hot on the backsideof unit near the control end. Unit seems to be all on or all both red and orange lites..I need a phone number...


Greetings, I have the same problem. There is a one inch square diode with 5-prong connections held on the control end by a screw on the unit's back. That's where my burning smell and very hot area were located. Call Carrol Apl. 1-800-654-3545. They have the diode for $9 + $9.95 postage. Matt who works there knows the part. Problem must be widespread - China Mfr.= Garbage products and No US Jobs.
