My GE trash compactor just quit working. A little over 1 year old. I opened it and found inside the motor frame a magnetic contact that is burned up. Nothing else is wrong. This part shouldn't cost more than $10 . I can't find it anywhere. Do I have to buy a new motor for $180 to replace a perfect motor with a burned up $10 contact?


Parts sadly, aren't as inexpensive as they used to be. Hopefully, you can get away with the $25 part.\015\012\015\012http://www.repair ... GE Dishwashers

Whirlpool dishwasher part #3385181. Machine had gone thru wash cycle and was starting to dry. Smelled electrical burning smell, opened washer door and washer was filled with smoke. Turned everything off, cleared smoke, and the washer water dispenser is very hard to turn. Washer has symptoms of burnt up motor that turns water dispenser. Machine is 12 years old.

I purchased an 18 inch frigidaire dishwasher in February of 2006 - model fdr252rbs serial # th 54593325 my instruction catalogue states that there is a 2 year warranty on the motot.

Burning smell from our Dishwasher. I opened it up and found a little square brown thing attached to the motor - It has a terminal at one end that a white with a coloured stripe cable attaches to via a slip on terminal and 2 terminals to slot the little unit directly into the motor.

I have a Whirlpool dishwasher (model DU890SWKQO). I turned it on and for a few minutes only the motor was running, no water. I opened the dishwasher to stop it and turn it off, then on again. When I opened it, the was an odor (burning or heat smell) and it was foggy (steam or smoke, not sure which) inside. I am assuming I did not turn the dial correctly so it only 'clicked' on the motor. Concerned now that the dishwasher is broken or concerned that it's not safe to use. Was the steam/smoke

I have a 3 year old GLD6200 that gets used once per week While running it this morning I heard a sizzling sound, i turned around just in time to see the control panel flicker and go dark.

Model Karcher 320H 1.141-205 When first switched on the pressure builds up and then the machine keeps no switching on and off, opening the trigger on the lance and it works ok, close trigger and the pulsing starts again, if left like this it would probably burn the motor out.
