When just the high and low lights are lit, the unit is in childproof mode. try holding down the high and low buttons at the same time until they go out. then if they do, check the response of the other buttons. If this dosen't help, there are really only 2 other options. Most often we see the control board go bad on these (located behind an access panel in the lower right hand corner of the unit below the counter) or the button pad contacts wear out. If the only button that doesn't respond is the up down button, and all the other buttons work fairly easily once its up..then you probably have a bad button pad. If the thing does all sorts of weird things and seem to have a mind of its own, probably a bad control board. the control boards on these fail so often, they re-designed the board to prevent further failures. The button pad is easier to replace and cheaper, so if you have to guess go with that first. good luck!

    I have a similar problem. Do you know the correct part number that I need to use when ordering a replacement control board for the Dacor RV36?

PO661 Code for CR-V Honda 2002

Hi there:DTC P0661 - IMRC (intake manifold runner control) Valve Position Sensor Circuit Low Voltage

Possible causes include broken vacuum hose to IMRC valve, faulty IMRC position sensor, faulty IMRC control valve, or faulty ECM (engine control module).

It is usually the IMRC vacuum solenoid which gets stuck and causes the problem rather than the sensor itself. Hopefully, it stays off for you. BTW, the Honda service looks for intermittent failure on this DTC so unless the problem remains where the IMRC is stuck in the high-RPM (smaller intake length) after a reset of the ECU it will be assumed an intermittent failure.

Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using FixYa, have a nice day.

I've changed front brake pads, rotors and sensor on my 2005 x3 BMW but the indicator lights still on. Ive tried the solution "turn key to #2 position" and wait for ever for the light to go...

Hi amfulbodmass,

If you have tried to reset the light leaving the key on in position #2 then I would recommend performing a battery reset. Sometimes if you go a while with the brake warning on, it can cause a temporary lock up of the system. Before disconnecting the Negative battery cable for 10 seconds just remember you will need to reset your clock etc. After the battery reset, you may have to once again leave the key on in position #2 for a few minutes before the reset occurs.

Insinkerator stopped working. Cutting plate rotates freely. tHE RESET BUTTON IS STUCK IN THE "ON" POSITION.

If the reset button is stuck in the on position and can not be reset, the motor has an internal overload and will need to be replaced. Turn the power off to the motor via switch or circuit breaker, let it cool for awhile, the hit the reset button again to see if it resets. If it does, turn off the power at the breaker and leave it off. At this time, you need to dislodge a jam on the rotary vane that shreds the waste, there is something most likely stuck on the vane, causing the motor to overheat. There should be an allen wrench socket area in the middle of the underside of the motor housing, use an allen wrench and turn the motor manually back and forth, to release the jam. Again, be sure the power is OFF!!!

My car anti-theft seems to have kicked in and I can't get it to start. What do I do next?

hi, you can perform the reset with just your key and a battery charger to see if this will allow for restart. what you do is, hook up a battery charger to start with, low amperage setting like 15 amp, or maybe 2 amp, and leave it on the battery, you will be leaving the key on for up to an hour and the battery must not die during this time. turn the key on and try to start once for about 1-2 seconds, then let go and let key rest in run position for fifteen minutes at minimum. then turn off the key, wait ten seconds, and turn on again to run position only, leave on for another fifiteen minutes, then again, turn off for ten seconds, turn back on to run position for fifteen minutes. after this time, turn the key off, wait ten seconds, and try to start the car. if it starts, check to see if the check engine light is illuminated, or the security light is on, if one or the other is on, take to a shop and have codes checked and diagnosed, if no lights on, you should be able to drive on. if the vehicle does not start after three reset key cycles, try the process one more time. it may have been interupted somehow. if you try twice and still no start, you have to have diagnosed further, maybe in the key, maybe in the lock cylinder, maybe in the theft module.

Refrigerator side is not cooling enough. Temperature is only in low 50's. Freezer side seems to be okay.

First thing to try is Powering off the FF at the mains supply and leaving it standing for 30 minutes. Make sure that you do not open any of the doors or touch any of the controls during this time. Then reconnect the power and wait for 30 to 60 minutes to see if the fault remains or is cured. Try completely defrosting the FF as despite common belief these units are not totally frost free.

In side by sides if the freezer side is working OK and the fridge side is not working correctly it means that air ducting has iced up or the air vent from the freezing unit to the fridge compartment has stuck in the closed or partially closed position which causes the fridge to not be any where near as cool as it should be. If it is too cold then the vent is stuck in the open position and the fridge temperature will continue to fall and become the same as the freezer, thereby freezing the contents of the fridge compartment. It can also get stuck in another position so that if the temperature is adjusted on the front panel then nothing happens to the temperature in the fridge compartment. The vent, which is usually at the top of the fridge compartment on the side where it joins the freezer compartment, is controlled by a small sync motor and either the motor has become faulty, the control module is faulty or the vent is iced up. It can be come iced up by putting too many hot items in the fridge so the steam condenses and freezes the vent in position and then the motor cannot open or close it causing it and / or the control module to become faulty. Other times it is just old age that causes the motor and / or the control module to fail. If the sync motor and vent are working OK then there may be a fault with the fridge temperature sensor or main on board controller that will mean that the sensor or the controller will need replacing.

4/4 stuck in 4 low

Take off the positive and neg. battery cables, making sure the positive doesn't come in contact with any metal. Leave it off for 5 min. or so. This will reset your ECU or on-board computer to its default settings. Reconnect the battery cables and see if this clears your issue. Like every other computer it can have its data missed up. Its basically a reboot for ECU.
