How dop i reset e54 error of gestetner 2715?

To rest the error code > press the yellow Clear button then enter 1,0,7 then press and hold the red Stop button and hold till the screen changes. Then turn the main power switch OFF then back ON..... If the code comes back, you may have a thermister that is shorting out. Good Luck

Rheem model 41vrp40n flashes twice and stops working

Error code means that you have electronic gas control valve.

Copy following link to identify gas control valve, read error code meanings for each, and download service manual relevant to each gas control, but not specifically Rheem since rheem does not post service manuals.

The fact that water heater restarts, means that water heater is getting gas, getting sufficient air for combustion, thermister is ok, gas pressure is good, etc.
The fact that you unplug and replug water heater and it works, shows that you have power vent model.
Since water heater worked correctly before, 2 flashes with Rheem power vent model could mean that pressure switch has failed.

If you need further help, I’m available over the phone at

I have a Samsung Induction range and it has an SE error code on the rear left burner contro. I cannot get the code to clear so my whole range top is inoperative. How can I fix this.

"SE" error means you have a shorted membrane keypad.

There should be a "mini-manual" (tech sheet) hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or in the back cover, which is very helpful when troubleshooting, testing, and locating components.

You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.

I a LG 22860sw refrigerator ERROR CODE DH

The main Pcb as well as the defrost thermistor are in the circuit as well.
The thermister is attached to the evaporator with wire ties and connects to the roof of the freezer behind the fan assy.

I have seen the thermister connector pull out of the connector at the top of the freezer beacuse the wires were to tight. Remove some of the wire ties and reinstall the connector.

Dishwasher prog light is flashing and pump is running nothing els

ok, just a few minutes after posting this as a fault, I have opened the covers, the machine has a leak, the undertray has a sensor which has detected this, flashing light (prog 45 degC wash) flashing is a code to indicate leak sensor active.
Other prog lights flashing indicate a different fault, the following details each... this is a cut/paste from another forum site, copied without permission....

Cannot guarantee 100%accurate but you all might like what the flashing fault codes actually refer to, note what follows are pointers to what bit has gone wrong only. You should have the programmes running left to right: led1=intensive,led2=normal,led3=eco,led4=fast,led5=prewash,led6=delicate wash.ok so when this heap of western european tosh goes wrong one or two lights will flash this is what they mean:led3=m/ch has o/flowed water . ie the base underneath has sensed a leak.4=i/let h2o valve u/s or slow fill.5=thermister(electronic thermostat) is u/s or more likely the pcb .6=timeout heating which means the thermister senser between the door halves has become faulty or detached.3+4=no pump out,slow pump out,pcb u/s,blockage.4+5=tap off i/let valve.3+5=wash motor not coming on -seized,winding o/cic.but can also mean mesh plte filter badly blocked.1+4software fault with pcb.4+6=heating cic u/s (usually the heater tube )but can be the heater relay on pcb.3+4=pcb u/s.I don`t except any responsiblity for this being spot on or near spot on!! hope this helps someone.Try NOT to electrocute yourselves please!! If your not at all confident walk away and get "someone" who knows what they are doing.Cheers. jawa592

1997 Suburban-4 wheel drive problem-Won't work-Indicator flashing

It sounds like the spring loaded pin that the plunger activates is stuck or broken. If its not to cold tap on the housing and see if it kicks in. If not consult the book for an exploded view. If your manual does not have the view go to the nearest dealers parts department and ask them to print you one.

My lower oven does not work; top oven works fine

You can usually find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.

Thereshould also be a "mini-manual" (tech sheet) hidden inside the unit behind thecontrol panel or hidden inside behind the back cover, etc., and it's very helpful when troubleshooting, testing, and locating components.

No heat in dryer

if you can see your heating element, use a meter to test for continuity. remove the clips or wires attached to the terminals of the heating element and put the probes of the meter.
the reading should be close to short since it is a heater. maybe 1 to 10 ohms.

tnx 4 using fixya,
