Miele D/W # G2170 intake/drain light flashing

08 May 2015 - 10:11 AM

 Do not see too many of this brand.......Only had time for a quick look.....Drains O.K.......Fills for two seconds, pause for two seconds, Light for  Intake/drain lights and starts to beep, but continues to  fill for two seconds, pause for two seconds.......... Only had a partial service manual......Cleaned the filter at the intake water valve, removed the left side panel, no restrictions in the water diverter, did not hear the circulation motor start.........So I was thinking :woot: .........Is there a sensor or pressure switch waiting for a signal to start the wash cycle????    The customer had Goggled the problem and removed and reassembled some  parts... :nono: ....There was a small part in the sump area that took  a few attempt to get installed correctly, small plastic part with a steel ball inside and it  looks like the water leaks at the well worn gasket.......Down loading the complete manual ( 277 pages worth :ohmy: ) and will be looking for the section of " Sequence of Operation".........Reading material  :geek:  for this weekend, hooking up the 5th wheel and leaving for the beach Friday noon  :bunny: :bunny: :pint1:  :woohoo: ............

K/M dishwasher 665.13922k010

13 February 2015 - 12:03 AM

  About a year ago....Original complaint was " No lights, no keypad response ".....I got no respose from the keypads, had power to the control board........on the right side of the control board is a short wire harness, unplugged it and reconnected it,  the control board awoke, unit tested O.K.................About 6 months later same complaint, this time , I bent the pins just a bit on the control board to  make better contact in the harness connector......I had looked for this short wire harness but I could not find a part or part number on the parts breakdown............... Checked with the customer a few weeks later, she said the display went dead once and she gave the control panel a whack and it came back to life........I gave here some options , but she said she will  live with giving  it a whack to wake it up..............This last call was , she gave it a whack and it did not wake up, she push the cycle button and push 'Start' ...unit did not start, she closed the door but not latched...........she left the room....She came back a few hours later and the dishwasher was running with the door partially open, and no control lights on and of course, water on the floor...............She  hit cancel, D/W stopped washing and pumped out the water, then stopped .....I got there the control panel lights were still not lit and the door was not closed............With the door open, pushed the keypads,  nothing.......I closed the door and it woke up..........Started a cycle , it filled and started to wash, I went on reading the tech sheet...then I canceled the cycle.......................Ran dignostic test, one code was 2-1  'Stuck Key'........All key pads tested O.K. .............what I would like to know  has any one else seen this happen????  Running with no control board lights on and the door not closed,..........Door latch tested O.K. this time....Told the customer, 'with tongue in cheek' that it was possesed..........She thought that was funny, cuz she was already pricing new dishwashers..................


refrigerant leak detection kit

02 January 2015 - 08:28 PM

Looked thru most of the old posts..........Any one got a line on  U.V. leak detectors???? ....Been eying the Robinair P/N 16235........A leak is a leak, auto motive or domestic freezers, I figure............Been recharging a customers system a few times, wants to find the leak once and for all................I told him if it is the evaporator coil, it will be about 850 clams to repair   (Turbo Air freezer).....IF I can find the leak...........................Told him he is better off just to purchase a new True freezer for 2000+ clams..........
