The Famous Forry :

Are you sure you have 240 in?

The Famous Forry :

If so . Please check the anti-flood device in base of machine. Very near to base centre

Customer:

Thanks, XXXXX XXXXX from the inside or the outside of the machine? What does it look like?

The Famous Forry :

It is inside placed on the base plate. It is a small micro swith, that is activated if the base gets water in it. The switch has a small piece of foam attached to it that rises in water and activates the anti -flood device. Start by removing side panel/s. Unplug from ELECTRICAL SUPPLY before attempting any repair.

Customer:

Thanks. Found anti flood device. If I lift the arm & operate the switch it turns pump on to empty machine. Now what?

Customer:

Of course the machine is already empty. Still no lights on.

The Famous Forry :

was there any water in the well where the anti flood device is fitted?

Customer:

No

The Famous Forry :

It appears the anti flood device is ok then. You can rule this out. Please check now to see if your pimp is open circuit

Customer:

Bu I have had the machine on it's side

Customer:

I guess you mean 'pump'

The Famous Forry :

Providing no water is flood area now, then forget the flood device. Yes I mean PUMP

The Famous Forry :

You are sure door is shutting correctly??

The Famous Forry :

|Door swith must be activated

Customer:

I had the pump working when I lifted the red arm from the flood device

Customer:

OK I'll check door switch

The Famous Forry :

Is door switch ok?

Customer:

Door switch seems OK. When main switch is pressed wire connector pulls door lock on

The Famous Forry :

You may need to look at electronics/pcb. It may be worth checking the pressure switch is ok and the small capillary pipe to it is not blocked first.

Customer:

Ok. Please explain how I recognise the small capillary pipe. Is it part of the clear plastic moulded pipework on the right of the machine?

The Famous Forry :

Ther are so many possibilities that can go wrong here and you have now eliminated a fair few. There is another I have just thought of and that is where the door hinges down. all the wiring is here and often you get a broken wire here. The wires are wrapped in some sort of sheath to help protect them, but over time, wires do break in this area. High possibility.

Customer:

Thanks. Wires at this point are fine. What about the capillary pipe you mentioned?

The Famous Forry :

The pipe is small black brake type hose attached to usually small round pressure swith with 3-4 wires attached. A water sensing device.

The Famous Forry :

It senses when the water level has been attained, but sometimes they fail, or the pipe gets blocked with sediment.

Customer:

OK thanks but can't find that. Think I'm now out of my depth, I need more than you can give me. The thing is scrap!

The Famous Forry :

You sure you checked the wires. You seem to have checked these very quickly unless you had previousely done this?

Customer:

Yes already had fron of door removed

The Famous Forry :

I used to tug each wire seperately and move it about an inch to make sure it was not broke further inwards, every wire tugged seperately, one by one. Painstaking i know! Best of luck again regards David.

Customer:

Thanks & out!
