Question about Microwave Ovens

Open Question

Kenmore upright Freezer model # 253.23024101 Temperature Alarm was going off nonstop. Also, meats in upper 1/2 of freezer and door defrosted but lower still frozez. After researching this problem I discovered that there is a battery in the front grill. There was previously no battery there (unless my husband took it out without telling me) - anyway I put a 9v battery in and pressed the button. The alarm has stopped beeping, however, the red light under the alarm on/off button is blinking red. Is this blinking red light okay? It's in the garage and I have never really noticed it. If I press and hold the button it still blinks red. The power light is steady green and the quickfreeze button I have pressed, so it is green solid right now. Oh, and my husband broke off the dial so I can't tell how "cold" it is, I assume turning knob to the right makes it colder and to the left makes it less cold. I have it turned all the way to the right. I unloaded the top half of the freezer because my house fridge/freezer could only hold that meat and since the lower half is still frozen I figured it can hold for now. I cleaned the underneath and a quick glance shows no unattached cords. Any help on the light blinking situation would help me - also, feedback on my dial would help me. thanks.

The microwave turns on by itself sometimes when the door is shut; it seems like the latch contacts or the door mechanism has some problems. I have to unplug the micro from the power to stop it. I also have to set the clock again

It sounds like a stuck relay or other controller problem.

I don't have the service data on this one, but there should be a schematic or tech sheet / mini-manual either on the back side, behind the controls, or somewhere else inside.

If you or someone you know can locate them and scan and e-mail or copy & fax them to me, I can probably give you further guidance.

Please feel free to contact me directly.

SOURCE: GE microwave (jvm1740dm1bb) - Control panel inop

That model number is not quite right. I'm going to assume it's JVM1740DMBB01.

(If that's not right, please check the tag inside the oven & reply back)

The membrane keypad is not available as a separate part, so you would have to order the control panel frame which comes with a new keypad.

In this case, you simply move your circuit board into the new frame.

The part number you need is WB07X11040 and you can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order this part here for $107.00 (compared to $164.75 from GE!)

At our Web site, we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

Feel free to contact me directly (and please remind me of your full model number from the tag on the unit) for more information & help.

I want to defrost my GE chest freezer but i do not know where the drain is


Since you did not include a model number this is my best guesses:
http://manuals.appliancesonline.com.au/kcm2100wc/kcm2100wc.pdf (Page 1 w/pic)

and
http://www.appliancesdirect.com/InstallationPdf/49-60442.pdf (page 7 no pictures)

For Complete Defrosting

Turn the temperature control to the

OFF position and unplug the freezer.

Remove all food and place it in

corrugated boxes, insulated bags,

picnic coolers, etc. Use towels and

newspapers for insulation as needed.

With the door/lid open, use pans of

hot water to speed loosening of frost.

Remove large pieces before they melt.

Chest models have a defrost water drain

at the front.

NOTE: Water may drip from the back flange of

the lid cover during defrosting. This is normal.

Ice builds up in the lid insulation when the lid is

open for adding or removing food, and melts

during the defrosting operation.

Sponge excess water from the bottom

of the freezer as it collects to prevent

overflowing.

After defrosting, clean the inside of the

freezer (see Care and Cleaning).

Replace the drain plug inside the

cabinet and the cap on the defrost

drain. Fold over and dry the gasket

on the hinge side of the lid.

Plug in the freezer. Return the

temperature control to its previous

position and return food to the freezer.


Hopefully with this information you can find the drain. If not go to www.ge.com and click on service and support to download your manual. (Model number required)
or contact them here:

800 GE CARES
(800.432.2737).

Thanks for choosing FIXYA,

  1. Unwrap food, place on the turntable, and close the door.
  2. Touch Defrost.
  3. Select food by entering 1 for Meat, 2 for Poultry or 3 for Fish, or touch Defrost repeatedly to scroll through the food selections.
  4. Enter the weight in pounds:

    Meats and Poultry can be set from 0.2 to 6.6 lb (90 g to 3 kg).
    Fish can be set from 0.2 to 4.4 lb (90 g to 2 kg).

    Doneness may be adjusted at this time by touching Cook Time.
  5. Touch Start. The display will count down the defrost time. When the cycle ends, "End" will appear in the display, and the end-of-cycle tones will sound, followed by reminder tones.
  6. Touch Cancel Off or open the door to clear the display and/or stop reminder tones.
The Defrost system has 3 categories: Meat, Poultry and Fish. It should not be used for food left outside the freezer more than 20 minutes and frozen ready-made food. Use the following chart as a guide.

Why is my refrigerator not working properly? well , since I got it I have problems because it never seems to get cold or work properly. I think it might be cause it is digital.


This product comes equipped with an Adaptive Defrost Control (ADC). To activate manual defrost, press and hold the Freezer temperature UP (WARMER) key while pressing the Fresh Food temperature DOWN (COLDER) key 5 times within 6 seconds. A "d" in the freezer temperature window and "F" in the refrigerator temperature window will display when the heater is activated. To deactivate manual defrost, press and hold Freezer temperature UP (WARMER) key while pressing the Fresh Food temperature DOWN (COLDER) key 5 times within 6 seconds. "d" and "F" will be displayed until the defrost cycle is complete. (approx. 8 minutes)

I have a Teka A-FCI340 fridge/freezer. The fridge is too cold and freezes items put into it. No matter how I turn the temperature control dial it still seems to be too cold.


I had the exact same problem with the same model and mine was just 3 years old. My problems started when I defrosted the freezer. I spent 75gbp on an engineer who told me that I had probably 'spooked' the fridge when I defrosted the freezer, that this particular model of fridge wasn't designed to last longer than 2 years.

I would recommend you check the door is shutting properly (check the screws at the top, it might be just slightly out of alignment).... I turned the whole unit off for over 2 days to allow absolutely everything to defrost (both inside and on the back of it)... within 30 minutes of turning it on, the back of my fridge was already frosted over.

Engineer told me not to waste money calling them out again, and to buy another one...

Have samsung american fridge freezer with ice dispenser i bought it second hand the problem is the digital display says the freezer is 20 degrees but its freezing inside also every minute or so we hear a...


If it's American, the temperature probably reads as fahrenheit. If so, 20 degrees F is 12 degrees F below freezing which converts to only -6.67 degrees Celsius.

Domestic freezers should be set to -17 degrees Celsius (= 0 degrees F), so the beeper is warning you that the freezer compartment is far too warm. If it's working correctly and has the temperature control set correctly, then it should achieve the correct temperature if you leave it for 24 hours and do not open the door nor try to use the ice dispenser. If the freezer is full of unfrozen items and so has to cool those down as well, then it may take even longer to reach the correct operating temperature.

Te operating manual for your appliance will tell you how to set the temperature correctly and whether it's possible to select between fahrenheit and Celsius scales. Most models allow you to set an override on the beep alarm as well. I cannot guide you on this without knowing the exact Samsung model.

Siemens fridge freezer kg30u694gb has droped temperature from -23 to -4 is that normal also alarm is on


No. The freezer's ideal temperature is -18 and if this has dropped it can be due to many issues.
It can be the gas pressure, the pumping of the compressor if there is no coling even after switching off for several hours.
If cooling returns after several hours it can be auto defrost timer, thermostat or poor defrost heating

I have a skandiluxe chest freezer and the orange light is on - is this right?


On my Skandiluxe CF309 chest freezer, the ORANGE LIGHT IS FAST FREEZE and should be depressed to quick freeze when adding newly bought items as the temperature will go up when you've opened the lid for prolonged periods. This is also used to drop the temperature when restoring after defrosting. REMEMBER TO TURN THIS OFF. Also, take note of the gauge in the inside of the freezer which tells you which setting to switch the dial to according to how full the freezer is, and therefore the most energy-efficient setting.

The red light is the warning or "alarm" and will light up when the temperature is too warm.

The green light is a "control" light and I can't remember what this is for, but I don't recall seeing it on in the 15yrs or so that I've had the freezer.

TO DEFROST:
(The drain comes out directly underneath the drain hole and there is no hose. Not a very helpful design. I found that if you tip the freezer forward and scoop out as much water as you can, then mop up the rest with a large bath towel, it should do the job.

BTW if you are planning to defrost the freezer (or any freezer for that matter), once you've switched it off, if you have access to a hand-held steamer, and place something like an empty plastic box to catch the ice (we used an unused litter tray as it's the perfect size to catch all the ice in an upright freezer), it saves a significant amount of time. If you don't have one, it's worth investing in a cheap one with the squeegee function so you can do all the nitty-gritty jobs around the house including the windows in no time and no elbow grease at all !!

You may have the cold control set lower than necessary. Make sure the condenser panel is not coated with dust/dirt. If the outer walls of the freezer are the heat-release surfaces, make sure that nothing is on top of, or stacked next to, the outer case that could block heat release. Hope this helps!

We have a Haier upright freezer and i can not get the alarm to go off


Hello,

the reason there is no fan on the outside is because the outer shell of the unit is the condenser. the unit does it have a fan on the inside? also how does that gfasaket on the outside of the door look like? let me lknow


I would leave the door closed unplug it for half an hour. In that half hour go to sears.com customer service, manuals and guides and type in the full model number from the freezer. You should find an owners manual there to print or just browse for an answer. Good Luck.

AMANA UPRIGHT FREEZER LEAKS WATER FROM THE DOOR


Normal 0 MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 st1\:*{behavior:url(#ieooui) } /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-fareast-font-family:"Times New Roman";} Your evaporator coils frost up in normal use and every eight hours or so the entire unit shuts down and the defrost heater comes on to melt the frost. This cycle last about 20 minutes. The melted frost drips into a drain pan and through a drain tube to the drain tray under the freezer/refrigerator where it's evaporated by the condenser fan.


Your drain tube may be stopped up with ice at the upper end because it drains too slow because it's stopped up at the lower end in the evaporator pan under the unit at the floor. It can get dust and mold in it. Once you get the ice out at the top a little pressure with a turkey baster will usually clear it out. Flushing it out with hot water and clorox may help.
Make sure it drains quick enough to prevent refreezing. . The drain should be located below the evaporator coils on the lower back of the freezer.
