Light is emitted from the controller, through a light transfer tube in the tub, reflected through a prism mounted on the cabinet edge, back through a second light transfer tube in the drawer tub into the controller. Sort of like a grange door sensor. You have to figure out which part of that light path is out of alignment or faulty.

Great! now I understand, when I forced the controller out, a transparent plastic piece broke (there where two of them), i thought there role was to hold the controller in place (yes, foolish), and I didnt put them back, do you have an Idea what are thier part numbers?

or maybe there is a way to fool the controller so it will think it is closed?

thanks

Chat - that would be $2.99 + $7.99 shipping from Sears.

 

The one listed on E-bay is $8.00 + FREE Shipping and it is the correct one.  The problem with the part number posted in that Ebay listing is they did not post the actual part number of the part - the listing says the part is used with "Controller part numbers 528397HUSP-528080USP-528397USP" which is the controller used in Eli's DD603.

Item total (2)
$ 5.98
Sales tax
$ 0.39

Shipping
$ 7.99

 

Total
$ 14.36

The only way I can think of to bypass the light pipe, (the way it bounces the beam through the prisms of the pipe), would to maybe find some fiber optics that you could bend in  a "U" shape from the emitter beam back to the receiver and mount it directly at the control board with maybe a hot melt glue gun.
