In Topic: Basic Troubleshooting

I've replaced my Goodman ignitor with a universal Honeywell model from Home Depot. It installs and operates just fine, but this design doesn't completely cover the hole into the firebox (if it's called that).

Does this need to be completely enclosed?

I could use aluminum tape, a piece of sheet metal & screws (or aluminum tape). Or, maybe nothing?

Fins? There doesn't seem to be anything accessible, the end of the motor can't be grabbed.

Here's a crappy photo, but there's only this motor, and the plastic housing ahead of it. There's nothing that will turn.

I also notice that it doesn't fire right away - it clicks a lot, it takes a few tries. Could this be related?

It's a rental appliance but I don't think they'll come out and clean it.

Maybe 3 and a half years out of this is good service, but it almost never gets used, since there are only 2 of us and its so much faster just to wash everything by hand.

Today I went to use this GE dishwasher after a few months of not being used. It worked pretty well the last time. It opens to bring in water, then stops, and that's the end. Motor doesn't come on.

When it went on, there was a little funny buzzing noise that wasn't there before (I heard my dryer do this when it stopped working too). It looks that the pump isn't working. Could this be it? Where could I look first?

Now... try this first, I guess? :)

The braces are definitely off :)

Magically, the thing doesn't shake now. The tech put it back right where it was, backed in the corner at an angle, but it doesn't shake (it was very dramatic before). I have to check if he levelled it (not like I haven't levelled it too).

I'm afraid to put it back even with the dryer and walls since the concrete floor isn't exactly level (move the thing around and you'll find out).
