Its loading belt is loose and so the tray do not close properly. Replace the loading belt. Loading belt can be located under the tray connected between loading motor and loading gear assembly. Check whether there is any break in gear wheels too. If so replace them too. Tray is not close properly is your DVDs problem. OK.

    Thanks gopakumarg43, I took a look and everything seems to be in order, the gears have no wear and tear and so also is the belt, could it be the logic board? I would be bale to watch for about 15 minutes and then it would start openning , closing, loading, opening ..and so on and so forth.

    thank you

    Hello - If so, check the leaf switches also. There is two leaf switches fitted inside the loading tray mechanism as sensors. One is open sensor and the other is close sensor. They can be located underside the loading tray, fitted to its main frame. If close leaf switch doesn't get proper contact after loading, this type of intermittent open-close truble may occur. Before suspecting and confirming to the logic board, check this also. OK.

    No. There will be two leaf switches, one is close sensor and the other is open sensor. Look keenly into the loading mechanism.

Dryer door pops open during cycle

Good Afternoon Friend,

I understand that your Frigidaire dryer door keeps popping open during the cycle. I suggest making sure that the door has been completely closed before starting the cycle. If this is done, and the door is still popping open, there might be something going on with the door latch. I suggest contacting your local authorized technician for further assistance. They will be able to diagnose your appliance and determine why the door keeps opening mid-cycle. Hope this is helpful.

-Best regards-

Microwave not turning off when door opened during operation

It is likely a bad door switch or mount. See the help file here.

On some models, the door switches, fuses, and TCOs / thermal cutouts / thermostats must be checked, too. See photo below.

There should be a "mini-manual" (tech sheet) hidden inside the unit - behind the back, behind the control panel, or hidden on the left side behind the grille - which is very helpful when troubleshooting, testing, and locating components.

You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number from the tag on the oven here.

My device cant open the disc tray please advise me on what to do

Electronics Corporation sells inexpensive DVD players. The DVD players, however, often exhibit problems due to their manufacture and way that they work, which must be dealt with during the course of the player's life. Knowing what these problems are beforehand can aid in resolving difficulties when using the DVD player. In some cases, it can help eliminate the problem before it can become catastrophic

The disc door is not properly closed if the Disc player display shows an "Open" error message. Check that there are no gaps in the door and use the remote to open the disc door. If it will not open, unplug the Disc player and gently pull out the disc door and then push it in. Plug the Disc player back into the AC socket.

If the DVD has not been inserted properly into the disc tray, a "No Disc" error message will come up on the display. Eject the disc and lightly flick off dust using the edge of a lintless cloth. Inspect the disc for damage. Insert it carefully again into the disc tray and use the remote to close the disc door.

Because the Disk player is inexpensive, the power supply is not of the highest quality. Having a surge protector to plug into the Disc player will help to keep the power supply from being damaged over the course of its lifetime.

Have a nice day

Dishwasher DI450 Door

Hi chrissy99

Not sure what do you mean by keeping the door to stay open. Well if you want to keep the door open during operation , identify the mechanism that triggers the on button .

In my dishwasher to check if it function properly , I keep a small wedge / strip near the handle / button which opens the door.
