    I've noticed that the fan has been on more often than usual. Is there any relation?

  • appliance51 Jun 18, 2008

    274!!!! guess I'm gonna take out my voltmeter? any pointers what I should be looking for? How to diagnose problem?



    If I disconnect and remove the display panel does that affect the thermostat?

  • appliance51 Jun 19, 2008

    i was thinking about just putting a thermomrter in both compartments but I am concerned that there is a a bigger underlying problem.



    I would think its LED isn't LCD overkill for a fridge disply?



    BTW I found the replacement part just the display WR55X10522 at 90$

  • appliance51 Jun 23, 2008

    Well my temperature panel went on for about 2 minutes and went off again. Complained to GE about the problem, lets see where this gets me.



    About the supply module, where can I find that?

  • appliance51 Jun 25, 2008

    new development...clicking noise from back of fridge where the control board is located and the compressor seems to want to start but then stalls continously. called ge service.

  • appliance51 Jun 27, 2008

    Well 300$ later and my fridge is working again. It was the main control board that went sour. Repairman replaced it in 5 minutes. An extremely easy procedure that any DIY can do and save yourself the 90$ service charge.

    the led display is off. Any suggesstions!

    Temp display lights all went out. Unplugged and plugged back in so far they are back"on"....unit is 8 months old!

  • swlease Mar 12, 2009

    LED display was blank. Unplugging for 30 seconds and plugging it back in solved the problem monumentally. We where able to press the control keys a few times until it went blank again. We are still confused.

Hi there!

If it is still under warranty, phone the supplier or manufacturer about this. You should get it repaired free.

If not, There is power to the controller - as it's beeping. It could just be that the backlight is disconnected or faulty, in which case a new display panel is needed as a replacement.

These should be available from the manufacturer directly.

If everything else is working normally, it's just a faulty display.
If you are competent at repairing small circuits, test the inputs of the backlight first. If you are not, then replace the item.

If this resolves the problem, please spare a moment to rate as fixya! Thanks.

    Probably the fact you've set it to cooler by pressing the buttons - but you can't see that because the backlight's not there.



    Still sounds like the display panel.



    I can only find reference for the whole display unit - Part No.

    WR17X11976. And thats $274. I would suggest you keep looking for just the display only.

  • Richard Perkins
    Richard Perkins Jun 18, 2008

    Yes it will.

    Freezers stay within limits for 12 hours, and fridges around 4, so you're working to a time limit.



    Sorry - you said LED? Are you sure it is the old LED segment display - or LCD with a backlight?



    If it's LED it could be the driver chip, or just the power supply to it.



    If it's going to cost$$$$ it may be a cost effective option to buy some "weatherstation" displays - around $10 - and stick the probes in fridge and freezer. Basically giving yourself a new display altogether. If it's only the display that's broken, seems a cost effective solution to me.

  • Richard Perkins
    Richard Perkins Jun 19, 2008

    That's more like it - well done. I didn't check all the suppliers.



    If you're able to check the supply to the module before ordering it, it should give more certainty that this is actually the problem.



    Thank you for using Fixya!

  • Richard Perkins
    Richard Perkins Jun 23, 2008

    Hi again,



    The supply module will be any circuit boards the display is sitting on.



    It is sounding more like a faulty connection - as it did come on again. If it was permanently out - it would be the driver chip or more serious.



    Have a close inspection of all solder joints, and test the power supply to the board is giving a constant supply.



    ***RISK OF ELECTRIC SHOCK.***

    As the equipment has to be on for this check. Only attempt if you are competent at electronic repairs.

  • Richard Perkins
    Richard Perkins Jun 25, 2008

    Hi,

    Maybe it is the power supply to the board as I stated earlier.



    So hard to pinpoint things from this end without getting a meter on it myself - the limitations of Fixya!



    I hope GE service traces the fault. Please drop a note to say what the fault was so that others can benefit in the future.



    Thank you.

Hi I have a panasonic split air conditioner. It turns itself off immediately after turning on, the timer button then flashes and that's all.... I have checked for an error code it is H00. I have also made...


Hi Tania,
Have you gone through this checking sequence.? it's from a Panasonic a/c manual. It could be something as simple as a clogged filter. Once you have rectified the fault, you will probably have to clear the fault code as described at bottom below, before it will condescend to work again.

  • Once error occurred during operation, the unit will stop its operation, and Timer LED blinks.
  • Although Timer LED goes off when power supply is turned off, if the unit is operated under a breakdown condition, the LED will ON again.
  • In operation after breakdown repair, the Timer LED will not blink. The last error code (abnormality) will be stored
    in IC memory.
14.2.2 To Make a Diagnosis

  1. 1 Timer LED starts to blink and the unit automatically stops the operation.
  2. 2 Press the CHECK button on the remote control continuously for 5 seconds.
  3. 3 "- -" will be displayed on the remote control display.
    Note: Display only for "- -" (No signal transmission, no receiving sound and no Power LED blinking)
  4. 4 Press the TIMER ? or ? button on the remote control. The code "H00" (no abnormality) will be displayed and signal will be transmit to the main unit.
  5. 5 Each press of the button (? or ?) will increase error code number and transmit error code signal to the main unit.
  6. 6 When the latest abnormality code on the main unit and code
    transmitted from the remote control are matched, Power LED will
    light up for 30 seconds and a "beep" sound (continuously for 4
    seconds) will be heard. If no codes are matched, Power LED will light up for 0.5 seconds and no sound will be heard.
  7. 7 The breakdown diagnosis mode will be canceled unless pressing the CHECK button continuously for 5 seconds or operating the unit for 30 seconds.
  8. 8 The LED will be off if the unit is turned off or the RESET button on the main unit is pressed.
14.2.3 To Display Memorized Error Code (Protective Operation)
  1. 1 Turn power on.
  2. 2 Press the CHECK button on the remote control
  3. 3 "- -" will be displayed on the remote control display. Note: Display only for "- -" (No signal transmission, no receiving sound and no Power LED blinking)
  4. 4 Press the TIMER ? or ? button on the remote control. The code "H00" (no abnormality) will be displayed
    and signal will be transmit to the main unit.
  5. 5 Each press of the button (? or ?) will increase error code number and transmit error code signal to the main
    unit.
  6. 6 When the latest abnormality code on the main unit and code transmitted from the remote control are matched,
    Power LED will light up for 30 seconds and a "beep" sound (continuously for 4 seconds) will be heard. If no
    codes are matched, Power LED will light up for 0.5 seconds and no sound will be heard.
  7. 7 The breakdown diagnosis mode will be canceled unless pressing the CHECK button continuously for 5
    seconds or operating the unit for 30 seconds.
  8. 8 The same diagnosis can be repeated by turning power on again.
14.2.4 To Clear Memorized Error Code after Repair (Protective Operation)

  1. 1 Turn power on (in standby condition).
  2. 2 Press the AUTO button for 5 seconds (a "beep" sound is heard) on the main unit to operate the unit at Forced Cooling Operation Mode.
  3. 3 Press the CHECK button on the remote control for about 1 second with a pointed object to transmit signal to
    main unit. A "beep" sound is heard, and the Error Code is cleared

This machine was spinning with an uneven load and stopped working so I emptied the machine and took it apart. I found the shock absorber on the tub needed to be put back together so I fixed that problem...


The error E68 means the ccu has sensed a stuck button on the console. MANY times this is a false error and means that either the ccu or interface must be replaced, but SOMETIMES, there really is a stuck button. TRy to run a diagnostic using the instructions I have provided below, let me know if you need any help with it.
1. Press and hold Select and Cancel buttons simultaneously for 6 seconds to reset the control. The buzzer will sound
1 time and "rES" will be shown briefly in the display.
2. Immediately after, rotate cycle selector knob 5 turns counter-clockwise to the second position from the bottom.
Press and hold the Options and Cancel buttons simultaneously for 2 seconds. The control will enter test mode,
the buzzer will sound 3 times and all LED's will rapidly flash.
After entering the test mode, the cycle selector knob can now be rotated to select the following tests:
Rotate the cycle selector knob clockwise from the starting position:
0 turns: All LED's will flash.
1 turn: Drive motor runs; heat source is on. Drying LED is lit. "H" and the control thermistor reading will toggle
back and forth in the display.
2 turns: Drive motor runs; heat source is off. Cool Down LED is lit and "AF" (Air Fluff) is displayed.
3 turns: Drive motor runs; heat source is off. Drying and Cool Down LED's are lit and numbers appear in the
display showing moisture sensor readings. Opening the door (press in on door switch plunger) and placing
a finger on the both moisture sense bars at the same time will make the numbers decrease. In controls that
do not have a digit display, the More Dry LED should be ON. Opening the door (press in on door switch
plunger) and placing a finger on the both moisture sense bars at the same time will make the Damp LED
come on.
4 turns: Drive motor runs; heat source is off.
Key test:
a. When the Temperature key is pressed, all the temperature LED's should light.
b. When the Dryness key is pressed, all the dryness level LED's should light.
c. When the Options or Select key is pressed, all the Option LED's should light.
d. When the Start/Pause key is pressed, all the cycle status LED's should light.
e. When the Cancel key is pressed, all the cycle status LED's should light.
5 turns: Drive motor runs; heat source is off. Cool Down LED is lit. Control thermistor reading is displayed.
6 turns: Drive motor runs; heat source is on. Drying LED is lit. Control thermistor reading is displayed.
7-11 turns: All LED's will flash
To EXIT test mode, press and hold the Select and Cancel buttons simultaneously for 6 seconds or disconnect power
from dryer. Dryer will be reset for regular operation.
If you cant even enter this mode at all, your interface will have to be replaced. There is no way to determine whether its the intrface OR ccu, but in my experience, it's usualy the interface that ends up needing replacement. Here is the part to order.

F2 code


Hi, F2 code on the Kenmore indicates a problem with either of the control board and the user interface board. Run the console and indicators diagnostic test mode to find out.

Console and Indicators Diagnostic Test Mode Activation
  1. While in standby mode press the following button sequence within four seconds: SOIL LEVEL>WASH RINSE TEMP>SOIL LEVEL>WASH RINSE TEMP
  2. Press START within five seconds when "dt" shows on the display. All indicators in display are lit and "88" is displayed.
  3. Press START again. The two-digit display and the status indicators turn off while all other indicators remain lit.
  4. Press START again. The two-digit display and the status indicators turn on while all other indicators remain lit.
  5. Rotate the WASH CYCLE selector back and forth. The indicators will switch on an off.
  6. Press the buttons to check the functions. The indicators switch on and off and a beeping sound will be heard when a button is pressed.
  7. Press STOP or POWER button to exit diagnostic test mode.
  8. If no indicators light up or if no beeping sound is heard when a button is pressed or if some buttons do not light up indicators when pressed, check the control board, the user interface board, and the connection between them.
  • Unplug the machine.
  • Remove the three screws on the back of the console.
  • Lift the console off the cabinet.
  • The control board is located on the right side of the console viewed from the front of the machine. Disconnect the middle wiring harness connector on the right side of the control board near the pressure transducer hose.
  • Clean the connector and the terminals thoroughly with brush and alcohol.
  • Reconnect and disconnect the connector several times.
  • Reinstall the console and reconnect power.
  • If the problem is not resolved, replace the user interface board.
  • If the problem is still not resolved with the replacement of the user interface board, replace the control board. You may also replace both board at the same time and keep the old good board as a spare.
Take care

The signal keeps beeping constantly, how can I stop this?


If it’s a FAV6800AW or FAV9800 are there any codes in the console display? Have you tried to recycle power to the machine? If you haven’t already done so disconnect the 120VAC power plug on the machine and reconnect after 10 seconds this is a hard reset to the machine Control Board. Does it still beep when you try to start a cycle?
Lets see if we can get into the machines Service Mode.
This is from the FAV6800AW/FAV9800AW Service Manual board output test on page 16.
Enter Service mode;
Enter / Exit Service Mode
To enter Service Mode press the Enviro Plus and Spin Only keys simultaneously for three seconds or until the control beeps. The Console display will show “00”.

Access Board Output Test by pressing the Delicates key. The console display will show “ot”

The lid lock will lock and the Quick Wash LED will be lit. Will the machine allow you into Service Mode?

If not have you recent storm activity in your area and do you have surge protection on the 120VAC outlet powering the washer?

Report back and we will go from there. Rich
