Hotpoint WM83 control module plug connections

I just replaced the door interlock on my WM83, and when I removed the control module for access, I forgot to note the position of two of the wiring plugs (although I correctly noted all of the others....): The ones that i didnt note are:

1. The purple connector (2 black wires), and
2. The white connector (4 black wires going to the triple switch bank)

Advice would be very gratefully received.

Fixed it - by a process of elimination and logic :) What was worrying me initially was the fact that it is possible to fit the connectors in either position (Hotpoint!).

We have a Lexmark printer C534dn and it keeps displaying 113.01 Service Printhead error. We have tried turning it off and sitting then turning it back on with no success. Of note the printer is plugged...

Try this:

  1. Is the front access door completely closed? Not?
  2. Turn the printer off, and remove the rear cover.
    Check the connector JINT1 (5 V interlock
    switch cable) for proper connection to the
    system card, the cable for pinch points, and the
    cable or connector for any other damage.
    Is the cable damaged? Yes? Replace the front access
    door 5 V interlock switch.
  3. Turn the printer power on, and check for 5 V dc
    between JINT1 pin (red wire) and ground.
    Is voltage present? Yes? Replace the front access
    door 5 V interlock switch.Not?
  4. Replace the printhead. Doesn't the error clear?
  5. Replace the system card.

Door interlock flashing

Same issue with loose solder joint on the relays inside CCU (computer control unit)
the same bad CCU is used by several manufactures.
you have to open the CCU and re-solder the the relays to the board. they have microcracks around the legs.
you will get the door lock issue randomly.
to prove the issue open the top access panel .and pull up on the center black plastic connector and the issue will go away.

it may be the interlock but is more probably the control PCB in the fascia, this is not a DIY repair as it requires programming when replaced.

Hotpoint WF860

when the machine was flashing door this was telling you that either the door was not shut properly, try it again, or the interlock switch was faulty, chances are its probably shorted out and blown the circuit board, take care and remove the board to check for signs of blowing, if no signs then i would replace the interlock and start from there, ps i am a retired engineer and have had the same machine myself

Door indicator prevents microwave from starting

This is usually an indication of a bad door interlock. Take resistance readings with the power turned off on the primary and secondary interlocks. You will need to remove the control panel to access them. There should be a wiring diagram somewhere inside the control panel to assist you in determining if the interlock is normally OPEN, or normally CLOSED. As you open and close the door the interlock should change states. Additionally, double all your connectors to make sure they are plugged in correctly. I had a similar problem once and it turned out to be a loose connection on one of the interlocks. I hope this helps you.
