Betty Crocker bcf1690 motor problem

When we turn the machine on motor does not rotate. I can select all the programs though. It is 5 years old. How does the machine open up if I want to repair it myself. Technical support is difficult to get as I am not living in U.S.

Sounds to me that you may need a new drive belt. Not easy to find out of the country, but Moulinex (sp) products may work. Your drive belt needs to have treads on the inside of the belt. To gain access to the area where the belt goes, you must take out the baking section, including the actual pan. Remove screws on the bottom of the unit as well.

I have used my machine once. When I tried to use it again a horrible clanking and metal sounding noise came from the machine. It only happens when the bread is kneading. I tried running the machine without bread dough to see if it clanked and it didn't. Franklin, the makers of the machine are of NO help. Apparently they fired all knowledgeable people when they stopped making the machine! Can anyone out there give me a clue as to what to do to fix it??

Have the same machine, had the same problem. you need to open the bottom of the machine where you will find a large gear (search for screws - the display thing pops off too so you can reach in and unscrew) . the spindle in its middle should not be turning freely. If it does, use whatever means possible (crazy glue, epoxy, maybe heat, etc) to attach the spindle to the disk. did that, and it worked fine for another 2 years. -turgut

How to fixed a error code E43 of washing machine Siemens

This is related to the motor, and may be that the motor needs new brushes the Tacho (feedback mechanism) is broken, wiring or the motor control board. Most likely for a 6-7 year old washing machine is the brushes.
However, after changing them, you still need to reset the machine
  1. Turn off the machine (dial to 0)
  2. Open the door
  3. Turn on the machine on first program
  4. Close the door
  5. Turn off the machine
  6. Turn on the machine on the "six-o-clock" program, which is centrifuge
  7. Press the "option down" button and keep it pressed (This is the button left of the display)
  8. Turn the dial to "seven-o-clock" (empty/pump out program)
  9. Release the "option down" button
  10. Turn of the machine
This should reset the machine, and if everything is allright, it should work. If it does not work after changing the brushes and resetting it, something else is wrong, most likely the motor control board, or if the motor.

It filled with water and just stopped, it won't do anything

A make and model would have been helpful.... most common cause for that is the motor brushes being worn out... happens a lot on Bosch machines that are 5 or 6 years old.... machine wants to turn the drum but can't because the motor can't turn.... if you select drain and it does that check the brushes... there are video's on you tube that will show you how
other cause could be water coming in to slow and machine timing out, check hose filters and water pressure... open soap draw while its filling. if water seems to be coming in at a decent rate refer to the above but check this first

Tricity Bendix AW 1200W drum not rotating in wash or spin cycles. It still goes through the whole program; fills heats & drains but with no drum action at all. It's about 4 years old & used daily....

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

This sounds very much like the belt is broken or the motor is malfunctioning.
Belt first.
Belts are not expensive- sorry I do not know how much yours would cost- and are easy to be changed by a competent person:-
The motor support bolts should be loosened and the old belt removed. Often putting the new belt on is a bit of a struggle, even with the motor 'loose', because it is new and smaller!
Once on it should be tensioned by pulling the motor against the belt firmly- but not over tight- and the motor support bolts tightened.

If it turns out to be the motor, it can be false economy to just have the brushes changed although financially very attractive. Experience of others is that the brushes may only last months unless, that is, the motor is totally refurbished at the same time. It normally depends on how old the motor is and how much wear the commutator has had. New motors are not cheap, though. Ours for a Bosch cost GBP250 but it's your choice!

If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!

Bosch washing machine model WFF1401GB/01, 10 years old, motor was replaced 5 years ago (so motor is 5 years old now). Drum has stopped rotating, pump etc all OK. Carbon brushes replaced, drum did work for...

Check the motor control board for dry joints, poor contact, signs of excessive heat around plugs/pins
I would try new brushes again or thoroughly inspect whether they are contacting the commutator.
I hope I have been of help but please do not hesitate to ask if you have any further questions.
I appreciate your vote if you appreciate my reply.

Ours's a hp color laserjet 4700dn ; the message is 59.30 error ; we bought the machine in the year 2007 what do you suggest?

59.30 states it's the:Fuser motor startup error
Based on the service manual here are the steps to follow:
Fuser motor error
1. Reconnect the connectors J4605 for
the fuser motor and J1024 on the DC

2. Run the component test to verify that
the fuser motor is working correctly.
3. Replace the fuser motor.

How to preform the component test below
1. Press Menu to enter the MENUS.
2. Press to highlight DIAGNOSTICS.
3. Press to select DIAGNOSTICS.
4. Press to highlight COMPONENT TEST.
5. Press to select COMPONENT TEST.
6. Select the component test Fuser motor. Use this test to rotate the fuser motor and drive gears.
Menus cannot be opened during component tests, so serves the same function as the Stop button.

More information on a Fuser motor failure detection
  • The DC controller determines the fuser motor failure and notifies the formatter of an error status when it encounters the following conditions.
  • Fuser motor start-up abnormality. The interval of the fuser motor speed detection signal does not reach the specified interval after 1.5 seconds of the fuser motor drive start.
  • Fuser motor rotation abnormality. The interval of the fuser motor speed detection signal stays at an irregular interval for two seconds and longer after it reaches the specified interval.

I've attached a screen shot of where the fuser motor is located It is # 8. tballone.png

Kenmore 90 Series fills with water but would not agitate or spin

You have a problem with the motor coupling. Top-load washers use what's called a direct-drive system, meaning it does not use a belt but what's called a "motor coupling". I probably replace 5 a week because these little guys break because of 2 reasons that i've found.
1) The break mechanism is too dry and causing the basket to stop at a holt, which puts a lot of strain on the coupler.

2) They break because of over-loading. I don't think you're over-loading though because it was find for 5 straight years.

Good luck to you. The repair is kind of hard to do on your own for the first time, so I would call an authorized technician. It will run you anywhere between $90 to $120 at most.

Best of luck!

My 5 year old pressed a combination of keys - not sure really - and now my screen has rotated - and I cannot get the screen back to normal -- in fact I have my monitor tipped over to the right side just so...

right-click on the desktop and select properties. you should be able to find the correct setting from there (probably in the right-most tab which will likely be be named for your video-card manufacturer).
