GE Adora Front Loader with no power?

We bought a used GE Adora Front Loading washer. We should have done our homework first but now we're 5 months into this. Out of nowhere I cannot get it to power on to save my life. We've unplugged it, tripped the power and nothing. My husband was able to get it back on after some playing around with the buttons and controls but now it's just plain dead. It was running fine until then, no problems, no leaks, no nothing. I hate to make an expensive service call but there has to be something. Any suggestions?

G.E. dielektrol capacitor making popping sounds internally Answered

I recently acquired a G.E. 40,000 volt capacitor and initially it was fine but it has started making loud popping sounds inside while charging and discharging. It sounds like there might be arcing inside but it still holds a charge just fine which is quite strange. The sound always comes from the same exact spot and the capacitance has decreased from 1.88 uf to 1.5 uf. I'm wondering if inside the cap there is several smaller ones and maybe a connection came loose during shipping but I really don't want to pull it apart because it's welded shut. Any advice on what I should do would be helpful :) Thank in advance!

How can i have my home alarm system email me system status?

I have a concord 4 home alarm system from GE. It currently supports the following communication methods to report status. 1. GSM by means of a $250 module to connect to 2. Outbound dialing to a pager # which will send codes which you need to look up to see what they mean. 3. Central monitoring station service which it will dial and send system status to. I've seen modules such as the Telguard TG-1 which will intercept the outbound dialing and convert the pager tones and transmit them over GSM to a central station as well. What i'd like to do is one of the following. I'd like to get the system status messages from my system, but I don't want to purchase the GSM feature or a pager as I already have a cell phone. I can add the enterprise paging feature from at&t; but I just feel there must be a DIY method for this. One option I've been considering is a phone line simulator component to basically have it connect to a server I have via a fake modem connection and use the GE Enterprise Downloader software to have the system upload/download from that using the phone line simulator. Beyond that, i'm not sure what options I have.. Would love some ideas.

GE Microwave Makes Humming Sound with Smell

My GE microwave (JE1860SB 002) made a cracking sound and stopped working. After some research, I removed the cover and checked the fuse and it was good. I then checked the thermal flame/sensor and discovered it was burned out. I replaced the thermal flame/sensor and now the unit comes on but makes a loud humming sound and has a burnt smell. The next step (according to my research) is checking the diode (cable) which is attached to the capacitor. It appears I need to discharge the capacitor before proceeding? --- BEFORE replacing the sensor, the unit had been unplugged for over one week….AFTER replacing the sensor, the unit was plugged in for about 5 minutes on Jan 25, 2018.- What is the best/safest way to discharge the capacitor? Is an insulated screw driver or pliers needed or will a rubber handle tool work considering the time it has been unplugged? (Capacitor pictured below) - Should I remove the two connecting wires and diode before attempting to discharge the capacitor? - If the diode is bad should I still check the Magnetron? - If the diode is good, what is the next item to check/test?

GE washer mod. #WJSR4160D0CC I like to soak our cloths so I stop the washer & the timer still runs can hear it clicking?

I have a GE washer model #WJSR4160D0CC.  When I start a load I like to soak our whites for a few hours so I stop the washer after it fills up and spins for a while and let them soak.  After I stop the washer you can still hear the timer running and clicking is my timer going bad?  My husband says it should not make this noise at all once I push in the knob to let it soak.  Once the washer runs through the full cycle it does not make this sound.  Is it going bad?  Any thoughts?  Thank you.

New LED lightbulbs shine light in all directions

GE is going to be releasing a new LED lightbulb early next year that shines light in all directions, like a normal bulb, instead of one direction like they do now. The bulb will use 9 watts and shine as much light as a 40-watt incandescent. It will also last for 17 years. The drawback is the cost, which will be $40-$50, but it does provide an efficient lighting option for those who don't like the light from CFLs. No word about the blades on the side, however.

3 year old GE Adora front load washing machine has much water and suds in door gasket lately. Any ideas?

I followed the instructions on cleaning out the filter which produced 1 penny and no lint. I also checked out the tube leading from the tub to the filter and found the underwire that came out of a bra a while ago. Ran a small load and previous problem of very wet clothes after complete cycle seemed to be taken care of but still had a fair amount of water in the door gasket with some suds. Also looked at the output drain which goes into the wall and it appears to be clear. There are three holes at the base of the door gasket which I assume is where the water is draining to...have tried to see if there is any blockage there and can't really see any reason why water wouldn't drain. Help!
