Absolute best solution for Tankless water heater is to replace whole thing with tank-type water heater and quit spending money fixing an old computer with multiple sensors that is connected to your water pipes, electric line, and gas line, that is connected to a gas burner with vent pipe to outdoors ... As if each of these systems doesn't have a load of problems on its own without a computer chip.

I have a Frigidaire FRS6R5ESBN and my ice maker stoped working i have tested the motor 596 ohms the inlet water valve 191 ohms all the micro switchs test ok. I don't know what to test next. Can I...


Hello,
There are 2 types of icemakers that Frigidiare uses each style can be started to see if they will send power to water valve to fill the i/m w/water

It seems to me you have the type with just on big gear in the center under the cover and a smaller motor gear to drive the big gear (thats the type that has microswithes inside of it) to start it manually pull the fingers downward in a clockwise direction till fingers are in the 3 or so o'clock position and from there it should continue to run a 360 rotation by itself and at one point on the plug at the water valve their will be 120 volts ac to that plug. If 120 vac at the plug restart it again by rotating fingers and toward the end when usually the valve should open and send water to i/m . If 120 vac at valve yet no water to icemaker the water valve is bad and needs to be replaced so long as water pressure from house plumbing to valve is good. IF poor water pressure determine why that is

The other style has a gear under cover that says DO NOT ROTATE MANUALLY for that one place a jumper wire in the small holes marked T&H the i/m should start, when click is heard (usually within 10 seconds) remove jumper wire and again check for 120 vac at valve. Just as with other i/m type if 120vac at valve the valve is bad
.

I have an intermatic WH40 timer that works great when it is "On". However, once the unit encounters the "Off tripper", it turns the hot water power off, but the timer dial no longer...


If this is new installation, you have Load wires and Breaker wires reversed.
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-wire-WH40.html
http://waterheatertimer.org/images/WH40-water-heater-circuit-5.jpg


Hot wires from breaker connect to terminals 1 and 3 ... notice also there are small white wires connected to terminals 1 and 3.
Small white wires go to 240Volt clock motor located on back of mechanism, so these terminals have to be Hot all the time so clock motor is ON all the time >> thus hot wires from breaker connect to same terminals that have small white wires.

Load wires to water heater connect to terminals 2 and 4

Reverse your wires and things should work fine.

My water works on my refrigerator but my ice maker doesn't work.


Pour about 2/3 cup of water into the ice maker . If it freezes and dumps , replace the water valve ( the piece the wall water line connects to on the refrig ) . If it freezes and does not dump , replace the ice maker . Also check the rake ( rotating arm ) , to see if a small piece of ice could be blocking it , keeping it from turning . If so , the small cube could be an indication of not enough water going into the ice maker ( replace the water valve ) .

ICE MAKER NOT MAKING ICE, WATER NOT FEEDING INTO ICE MAKER


you may have a frozen inlet tube coming in to the ice maker. This is caused from a bad water valve and you would need to replace the water valve.

No water to dishwasher


There's no water entering the machine If there's no water entering your dishwasher, check these:

Water-inlet valve
Float switch
Water-inlet valve The water-inlet valve lets water enter the machine. If this valve is defective, you need to completely replace it. It's usually located behind the lower access panel on the left or right side. It's the device with the main water line (usually copper) from the house, a rubber tube to the dishwasher, and two wires attached to it.

Float switch The float switch is a small electrical switch that's located right below the dishwasher "floor." Above the switch, on the inside of the dishwasher, is a plastic cylinder that floats up as water fills the dishwasher. If this switch is defective, or if the plastic float gets caught or trapped in the raised position, the water can't enter the dishwasher. If the float switch is defective, you need to replace it.

The water doesn't drain from the machine If the water doesn't drain from your dishwasher, check these:

Drain line/air gap
Pump
Drain valve and/or solenoid
Belt
Motor
Timer
Drain line/air gap A clog in the drain line or air gap (if there is one) is the usual reason that a dishwasher won't drain. Often the problem is at the point where the drain line attaches to the garbage disposer or household drain line. If you remove this line, you can clear any debris from the hose or hose connection. Be sure to reattach the hose before starting the dishwasher again.

Pump Your dishwasher pump ejects the water. The pump is usually mounted directly to the motor, then attached to the bottom of the dishwasher. You can reach the pump from inside the dishwasher, but first you need to remove the lower rack, the spray arm, and the spray arm support. 

Look for an impeller--a round plastic fan blade-type of device that spins around. This is the wash impeller, which forces the water through the spray arm. Beneath the wash impeller is the drain impeller, which is similar in size and shape to the wash impeller. The drain impeller pushes the water toward the drain port. These components make up the pump. If any of the pump components are defective, you need to replace them.

Drain valve and/or solenoid Many dishwashers use a drain valve with an electric solenoid. When electricity flows to the solenoid, the valve opens and diverts the water to the drain. Sometimes the solenoid, or the diverting lever, sticks and prevents the dishwasher from draining or filling properly. Try to free up the solenoid to lubricate the lever. Otherwise, you may have to replace the solenoid or pump assembly. With these systems, the motor always rotates in one direction. When it's energized, the drain valve diverts the water. 

Other dishwashers simply reverse the direction of the motor to drain the dishwasher. These units don't have a drain valve. Instead, there's a drain hose connected directly to the pump housing.

Belt One brand of dishwasher uses a belt to drive the pump. If this belt is broken or has fallen off, replace it.

Motor If the motor isn't turning or working, the unit won't drain. First check to be sure you have power to the dishwasher. If not, see the section "It doesn't work at all." If the motor hums but doesn't turn, it may need to be replaced. 

Some dishwashers are susceptible to getting stuck if you don't run them regularly. If you haven't run the dishwasher for more than a week, you may need to manually spin the motor to free it up. If the motor is defective, you need to replace it. Dishwasher motors can't be serviced.

Timer Part of what the timer does is control the motor and drain valve. If the timer doesn't work properly, the water may not drain and you need to replace the timer. This problem is uncommon.

Icemaker not working.


I just had the same problem. I found a small amount of ice formed under the water inlet point in the ice maker tray. This ice prevented the rotation of the "ice cube ejection fingers" so it couldn't cycle and re-fill. I used a hair dryer to melt this ice and the fingers immediately began rotating. Once they cycled, the tray filled with water as it should. All seems well now.

When it tried to read a disk I get an error code ho3. the model is panasonic dvd-ls82


Fixing code H03 is very simple but needs some courrage and small philips screw driver.
The problem arrise from the laser lamb which moves up and down the disk through a mechanical shaft. I do believe when we press the back space for long time it will take the laser lamb beyond its limit and get stuck at the end of the rotating shaft so the servo motor gets difficulty and resistance to get it back to tract.
All you have to do is open the back of the DVD player " 12 small screws"
When you remove the back cover be carful not to damage the cables .
You will find the servo motor and laser lamb on one metal structure hanged to the body by three rubber suspensions.
Remove the whole structre and turn it upside down slowly .
Move the small black rotating joints up or down you will notice the the mechanical shaft will start rotating and the laser lamb will start to move away from the servo motor relasing it from where it get stuck.
And it will work perfect after that. Return the back cover and screw the 12 screws and you are done. Good Luck.
