Dishdrawer DD603 stopped midcycle - no display

8 posts in this topic

Hi, the top drawer of my f &p dishdrawer (DD603) has suddenly stopped working. It has not finished the cycle and has not drained properley. :(:(:( There is no display and nothing happens when I press any of the buttons.

The bottom drawer is still working fine. Which is a huge relief. Any ideas??? Many thanks for your kind consideration.

No useful advice, but I've got exactly the same problem!!:yikes:

Will watch this topic like an eagle!

All of us grasshoppers are in this together, huh? Hopefully that means it wasn't something I did (or that the kids :shock: did).

Try putting the drawer into diagnostic mode: press and hold the Keylock and Start/Pause buttons simultaneously for 5 seconds.  If the drawer fails to enter diagnostic mode, then you need to check for a valid power supply to the control board.  You'll do this by removing the front panel and using your meter to measure voltage at the Line In harness connector (it's labelled). 

You'll remove the panel by pulling the plastic pin out of each side, at the bottom, just behind the panel.  Turn the slot in the pin vertical and then pull it straight out.  The panel comes out bottom first.

From Bob Sankie:

You need to dind out if the motor controller to the upper unit has faild or if it is the Mains Filter Board that has failed supplying power to the Upper unit. Start out with the tech sheet... trace out power to the upper unit.

It could also be a blown link on the heater plate, which I have seen more than twice.  This cuts the power to the controller and is a bit of a trap for young players.;)

I also have the same problem, I have swapped the LCD display and PCB board over to check they weren’t faulty. The bottom draw was fine again, but the top draw is still dead. I then checked the PCB board at the bottom of the unit, it looks O.K, and I wanted to swap terminal plugs over to see if it made a difference but discovered the terminal plugs aren’t interchangeable. I am getting power to the drawer PCB board, but not sure what pins should be powered up?

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated, thanks.
