Suz-Zero Under Counter Ice Maker Model 315P

18 June 2010 - 04:02 PM

Sub-Zero UC Model 315P
Serial 2008299

Makes beautiful cubes; makes them on time (ever 30 minutes); but does not keep them.  Cubes are melting quicker than the bin can fill. Manual states should fill in 24-36 hours.  All trouble shooting advice has been followed with no success: drain is working, condenser is clean, kickplate and grill are free of obstructions; knob is turned to high.

Don't understand why cubes are not keeping :/  Is the bin too warm? not cool enough?  The door gasket is good and sealing well.

Please HELP :/

Fisher & Paykel DD603I

20 December 2009 - 04:10 PM

F&P DD603I double dish washer drawers is leaking down sides of tubs (upper and lower) when running.  When I open the drawer I noticed water on top of touch pad control also.  I'm not sure but I think the seal on top of the tub is not adequately sealing tubs thus allowing water to leak when running. 

1. Is there a way to adjust the threaded plastic rods so they pull the seal down tighter?

2. How does this work?  Does the motor pull the seal down until it senses a certain amount of resistance thus thinking the seal is sealed? or does it simply turn "x" number of revolutions?  If it's the latter, I could probably adjust threaded rod so seal starts out at a lower position thus pulling down tighter?

Thank you,

Fisher & Paykel Dishwasher

15 December 2009 - 07:06 PM

I have a Fisher & Paykel Model DD603I double drawer dishwasher.  The drawers have their cycle selection on the top of the drawer and are touch sensitive.  My bottom drawer works fine.  The top drawer is stuck on "heavy".  You can press the arrow button but it does not move from "heavy".

Do you think this may be a simple wiring problem or something bigger and scarier.....like the touchpad is gone out :/

Thank you in  advance,

DCS 36" Professional Dual Fuel Range RDS-364GDSS-L Stove Ser 02H34267C

06 November 2009 - 08:37 AM

I purchased a "like new, used very little" DCS Stove model number RDS-364GDSS-L and serial number 02H34267C.  I think the Registerartion card had not even been filled out yet.  4 gas burners with griddle in the middle and a electric convection oven. It looks identical to this one (it may even be the same but just a earlier year model):

When we got it home (@ 3 weeks ago) everything was working fine.  About 4 days ago the igniters were firing and lighting the burners but they would not burn on high....only about medium heat. After about 10 minutes they went back to working fine. I resolved this was probably just a fluke.  About 2 days ago igniters firing and lighting burners but igniters kept firing.  Tried many different combinations: light one burner; light all burners...nothing changed: igniters (all four, which is normal) firing constantly even after burners are lit....would not stop firing (clicking). 

Hit the internet: started investigating and read all sorts of problems/symptoms and solutions.  Have thus far cleaned igniters; unplugged and replugged stove; cleaned around burners and simmer plates very good (though they were not dirty at all....stove used very little prior our purchase) and nothing has helped.  Could unplug stove and manually light eyes but then oven won't work....plus, don't think it's very safe to do this. 

I'm fairly mechanically inclined, especially if I understand "how" something works.  Am certainly talented enough to "replace" something if I'm told how, or shown how, well.  Obviously, I'd like to begin process of elimination with least costly possible solution first.

Your wisdom and expertise is greatly appreciated.
