I have a hobart lx-g model which i purchased used a month ago. At the start everything worked great...then when ever i would push the "off" button it would shut down and restart by iteself......


Hi,

Initially would suggest to check that the power supply requirements are satisfied. You might also need to check the breakers. Depending on the exact model number, the AC supply can be as shown below:

If the above checks out OK, then it could be as you have suspected, the controller is messed up, more specifically the firmware or related electronics. You could of course try a reset by unplugging from the mains or switching off the appropriate breakers for say half an hour.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

Top drawer wont drain


Hi,

I am copying a solution I gave to another person about 10 minutes ago. They had a similar issue...

There is a possibility that the rotor motor which drains your water out has failed or that the propellor has worn out.

Open the drawer and remove the dish tray and cutlery basket. To remove tray, it is easier to lift the back of it up first then the front so that you clear the soap tray knob.
Then remove the filter mesh which is the disk on the bottom. To remove untwist the centre anti clock-wise half a turn. This releases it so that you can lift it out.
If you have water left on the bottom, empty out in a container with a sponge.
Then you will be able to see the top of the rotor motor in the centre.
Again half a twist to free it and then lift it out. Once you remove it look at the propellors to see if they have not chipped away. Most of the time the rotor stops working.
You can swap the rotors from the good drawer to test and see if it pumps the water out.
Normally when you start a new cycle, you will first hear the machine roof seal motors working for a couple of seconds, then the machine goes into an initial pump cycle for about 15 seconds. After this you will hear it stop and then start filling up with water. Once it has filled up with water, stop the machine and repeat a new cycle.

Pause the machine after the initial stage to see it it has pumped the water out.
If the problem is the rotor you can order a replacement and fit it yourself. Very easy to do.

Brand new SGS57A02GB just fitted. Run initial cleaning wash to get rid of factory water. Drain starts then stops, starts filling, goes through 2 filling cycles then the drain pump starts. The drain pump...


Hi,

This problem is mostly caused by the drain pump or a restricted drain line. Try taking the end of the drain hose off under the sink and re-checking the drain-out condition. If the unit is still not draining, I recommend replacing the drain pump.

Other possibilities could be that the sump is blocked, or the control or harness may need to be replaced.

Hope this helps.

Am14 will not stop filling on initial fill


Check the underneath the drain stem (lift up food catching screens inside the machine - drain stem will look like a long hard plastic tube) you may nee a flashligh when you tak out the tube to see the actual drain hole/ swirl your finger around the hole to make sure there are no toothpicks etc... also check on that plastic drain stem that there is a black rubber o-ring at the end of it - and is still tight.

also inside the machine there will be some plastic bubbles- (these are your float switches, which rise and shut off the fill when the water gets high enough. make sure they move either up or down (not both)

Write back if it still continues to fill

Dishwasher keeps stoping


Favorite for bosch is the water inlet modual which monitors the water flow in could be faulty, If incorrect pulses take place the motor wont proceed. Otherwise listen for a hum after water stops filling. If there is a hum, the main wash pump is jambed and has to be sorted out.

Bosch dishwashers have a seperate pump for washing and another for draining. Try making it fill more than once. There is usually a timed fill and the float stops it before it overfills It also might prevent it from washing without enouth water Try defeating the door switch and play with the float during fill. There may be a sensor that won't let it go into wash. Be prepared to get a little wet if it should start up suddenly. A slightly safer way is to fill it with the sprayer from the sink. and see if it will go into wash.

Bosch dishwasher is permanently draining even when the door is open. The draining usually does not stop, but on the occasions it does the wash cycle only last a few minutes before it draining again.


THERE IS A FLOAT WITH A RED SHAFT /LEFT SIDE AS YOU LOOK INTO THE BOTTOM OF MACHINE. AFTER TAKING OFF KICK PLATE. IT IS GOING TO DRAIN IF THERE IS A LEAK FROM PUMP OR HOSES FILLING UP THE PLASTIC BOTTOM OG MACHINE . KEEPS A LEAK FROM GOING ONTO YOUR FLOOR.. . MY GUESS IS YOU HAVE A LEAK DOWNTHERE AND NEED SERVICE.
