Pam, be sure tat the filter is properly installed. Whenever you remove the filter for cleaning, be sure to turn the unit OFF, before removing it. And back ON after it is cleaned and reinstalled.

For the blinking problem. Turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to OFF and unplug the unit for 15 minutes. Once the time has elapsed, plug the unit back in and turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to ON. Hopefully, during that 15 minute timeout, the unit's electronics reset themselves and reverted back to the original factory settings. If so, the filter light should have stopped blinking, if the filter is installed properly.

I hope this helped you to troubleshoot and solve the problem. Please let me know. Thanks.

Switch off, press reset and switch back on. Keep reset pressed for 10 secs. Check the bit behind the filter is also clean and check the drain isn't clogged.

Thumble dryer not working

Filter at bottom of machine needs pulling out and cleaned on a regular basis. This is a common fault and the lights is telling you to clean the filter. It is a large filter that unclips at the bottom front of machine. Remove two amall screws from the front of the filter located left and right and gently remove the front plate. Once removed you will see a metal filter clogged with clothing debris. Clean with cotton buds and a damp cloth till clean. replace all parts and you should have it working once again with a good heat source as well. Every 2-3 months is sufficient to keep it cleaned. Hope this helps.

The filter is located behind the front louvers. It can be accessed by removing the water collection bucket and looking up into the bucket holder, just behind the louvers. You should see a plastic pull tab handle, which is the filter frame. If you have never removed the filter for cleaning, it may have a piece of plastic tap, which was used for shipping. you will need to remove the tape and discard it, before pulling straight won the filter frame.

The filter can be cleaned by vacuuming it or if it's really dirty, washing it it in warm water and mild dish washing liquid. Rinse thoroughly and shake off any excess water and dry the filter completely before reinstalling it. Never operate the unit with out the air intake filter in place.

Brada ypm-06c air conditioner not cooling the room down no matter what i do! keep getting E3 code. is it normal for the lcd lights to keep blinking and blinking! SO annoying when in the bedroom at...

You need to clean the filters and coils on this unit so the error code will go away and the unit will work like it should. If it can't get clean air across the coils it will freeze up and not circulate any air. Most common issues are dirty filters and dirty coils that prevent air flow. Is the fan working to blow air? this code could also mean the fan is not working. Check on these and let me know.

I have an LG DLE2532W and the check filter light keeps blinking even though it is clean and the dryer won't work what could be wrong?

There is a thermostat or safety somewhere on the dryer where the filter is and it probably is dirty or bad.

I have a wd52525 the status light keeps blinking

There are 3 different LEDs on the front of this televison. The TIMER will blink green. The STATUS will blink orange and the LAMP will flash red or orange depending on if there is a failure or if the lamp timer is showing over 5000 hours.

If I answer your question directly and the status is blinking a steady orange light, then you have left the side filter cover or the front lamp cover off or they are loose.

Also holding the menu and device buttons together until the timer light blinks will reveal a code that will help in diagnosing your problem. Goodluck.
