    I will give that a try when I get home. How about having to hit the reset to get it to heat. Will your sugestion take care of both issues?

If you have already cleaned the filter then leave the unit unplugged for 10 minutes after this plug it back and then press and hold the START/PAUSE button for 15 seconds. If the issue returns then it means that the thermal fuse located inside the back panel to the exhaust duct is bad and should be replaced. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

Reset casio qt 6100

To reset one of these machines, switch off using the power switch on the left hand side (under the flap). Hold down the button on the bottom right hand corner of the machine (should have a small light bulb symbol above it) and switch machine on (Ensure you keep holding the front button down). Release the button then press the "ok" box on the screen. Once the machine has restarted it will ask if you want to do "Flag Clear" or "Initiliazation". Use flag clear to reset errors. Initiliazation to reset the machine fully. Hope that helps.

No heat from heater

Copy following link to help identify water heater.
Add a comment and describe water heater in detail. Attach video with clear description.
If unit has blinking lights, then check product manual for error codes from blinking lights.
If unit is delivering no hot water, check for cross connections
Call service technician and catch up on routine maintenance, such as cleaning water filter, etc

Service error 5100?

This error means that there is something obstructing the printing process. Check inside your printer through the gears that you can see under the lid. There should be something obstructing the gears such as dirt or in my case popcorn. There was even some paper caught underneath the rollers that I had to jiggle around to even see. Check VERY thoroughly.

5100 is a carriage error, check the timing strip for contamination(plastic strip about 1/4" in width)
The unit is not homing, check for obstructions.
1. clean **** strip film
2. clean **** strip film sensor (back of head carriage)(use contact cleaner)
Also, try this reset procedure:

1. Turn off printer
2. Hold down Resume button and press Power button.
3. Keep holding down Power button and let Resume button go.
4. Press Resume button 2 times then let BOTH buttons go.
5. Green lights will flash and then stop blinking.
6. When green lights are solid, press the Resume button 4 times.
7. Press the Power button and the printer should turn off, if not,
press the Power button once more.
8. Your printer should respond as normal..
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

Lights blinking

Sounds like it's either a glitch in the software or a bad heater. Does it blink 7x? You can clear that out so it's usable again by pressing a certain key sequence. I can't tell you the exact keys since I just know the thing by heart but it should be press the heated dry key then skip one and press the next one to the right and do that 3x and it will clear out the code. If it comes up again it probably is the heater. There should be a tech sheet under the bottom panel of the unit that has that sequence on it also. After hitting that sequence all the lights will come on. wait about 10 seconds and press cancel. Then you can use the washer again. Good luck.

"Clean light" keeps blinking; dishwasher won't start new cycle

Check to see how it's loaded. If something is obstructing either of the spray arms it will not start. I had this same problem and checked to see if there was something impeding the arms - I found there was. Reloaded the unit and it's running like a champ now!

Machine won't start and the START light keeps blinking

A flashing start button shows that the filter is dirty. Remove the filter assembly from the machine. The "tube" can be split into 2 sections fairly simply - do so, and wash each piece under the tap to clean it.
Once the assembly is cleaned properly, select the program that you desire, and press and HOLD the start button for 2 seconds. The wash cycle should begin.
