Fisher & Paykel - Fault code 56 - GW611 Excellence mashi

Postby subieboy » Mon Jul 06, 2009 2:03 am

HI there

Machine:

Fisher & Paykel GW611 Excellence.
Fault code displayed from procedure: Code 56 (or 00111000)

The machine will randomly stop during the spin cycle.

Did a quick search however I was unable to find anything on this fault code...

Thank you

Tony

Bowl check error
More than likely RPS (Rotor Postion Sensor ) fault
First check that there are no clothes or foriegn objects stuck between bowls (they can prevent the bowl clutch from disengaging)
There are numerous threads relating to the RPS (located under bowl near the motor)

Thanks mate,

well I pulled of the rotor ferrite and low and behold there was issue #1, a nice big crack traversing from the bridged terminals to about 13mm short of the centre:

I then had the bright spark idea of doing a continuity test on the RPS itself, there was very intermittent continuity while testing all the terminals - importantly the values changed on my DMM but no buzzer and after about 1 sec the value would return to 1...

So I have the new stator now (old part# 426454 and new part #426454P) but also found that the RPS wont fit to the new stator...

Apparently Fisher and Paykel doesn't make the original stator any more, would that be right?

Oven not heating?

Buy Fan oven elements and other heating elements for built in ovens and cookers online
If your oven doesn’t heat up then there is a good chance that the heating element has failed. Find a new one in our store including many low cost compatible heating elements for all major brands but also check thermostats including any safety thermostats that many modern ovens and cookers have fitted
