E8= The safety (high limit) thermostat has tripped too many times within a certain period of program time.

Basically you have a restricted vent, solution clean vent. If I were you I would run a load of clothes with the vent tube disconnected, it shall dry. For some reason it does not fix the problem, reply and I will answer when I come home from work at 6 PM eastern time tonight. Good Luck Tim

Won't stop running. This says I have to end with a ?

Good Afternoon Friend,

I understand that your Frigidaire refrigerator, model# FRC05L5DW1, is freezing the inside as well as running constantly. I suggest resetting your appliance, by either unplugging it or shutting the power off at the circuit breaker, for 3-5 minutes. When power is restored, if you are still having the same issues, I suggest contacting your local authorized technician. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

Frigidaire FFB240 dishwasher won't stop

Good Morning AA1970,

I see that you are having trouble with your Frigidaire dishwasher, model# FFB240, continuing to run unless you shut it off. While I'm not familiar with this particular model number, I suggest that you give the appliance a hard reset. You will do this by shutting the power off at the circuit breaker for at least 20-30 minutes. After restoring power, run the cycle. If it is still continuing to run unless you shut it off, I suggest contacting a local authorized technician for further assistance.

-Best Regards-

Frigidaire front loading washer, letter J in the display, will not operate.

First I recommend unplugging the washer for a couple of minutes then turning it back on. If that doesn't clear it unfortunately your are going to have to replace the control board. You can find the part here Just use your model number to look it up.

Won't run continuosly.

The first thing that I would look at is the compressor relay. The relay gives extra windings in the motor, power to get the compressor up to speed. It is a small thing that carrys a heavy load. (MORE)

Kenmore Elite HE3 - f2 blinking

This means that the drain time has exceeded 8 minutes and the water valves have turned off. After 4 minutes the suds error is displayed then 4 minutes later the F2 error.
Potential causes
1.Check drain hose for kinks or cloggs
2.Check electrical connection at the pump and make sure the pump runs.
3.Check inside of pump for foreign objects
4.If none of the above fixes the machine replace the pump.

My 1992 Frigidaire Elite stove has locked itself, how do unlock it?

1-turn oven control to lock
2-push in and turn the stop dial knob to set a cleaning time of aprox. 1 hour
3-push the start dial knob in . this will make the locking mechanism to operate (wait 15 seconds)
4- turn the stop knob back to the"0" setting on the cleaning dial. the knob will pop out waight 15 seconds to allow the mechanism to unlatch the door
5-open the door
6 push the stop dial in to return it to the manual position
7- turn the oven control knob to off
8- close door.
basically your just repeating a cleaning cycle to reset the lock mechanism

Kenmore elite microwave oven displays "Locked" and will not respond

My Kenmore Elite microwave (don't have the model number in front of me) also mysteriously locked its own keypad (we were sitting in an adjacent room, heard a strange beep, and got up to find the LED reading "Locked."). I pressed and held down the Stop/Clear button for ~10 seconds and it returned to normal.
