Yes, I follow the same procedure. At one time (student in the UK) I did not buy bread for a year, baked my own.

Need help with IFB dishwasher

We have an 7yr old IFB Neptune dishwasher. This is an old model of Neptune where there is no display for error codes etc.

From the past few months, during the wash cycle the dishwasher stops and starts every few seconds. This happens occasionally with every cycle. Checked every wash cycle from 6 to 1.

The problem goes away when i stop the cycle, power off and power on the dishwasher, and restart in a different cycle.

Talked to the IFB customer care but each time a different explanation and solution is given. Circuit board needs to be replaced, water pump needs to be replaced etc. As IFB is charging upwards of 5k for this, want to be absolutely sure that the diagnosis is correct.

Any pointers, suggestions, links are much appreciated.

@Pallavi; To me i sounds like some safety tripping, and full reset plus a different setting seems to cure it..

I picked up the OBH Nordica Inox 6544 Breadmaker and my wife has given it a go now. The beauty of the thing is no hardwork involved. No manual kneading of bread etc. I think the only thing will be to get the ingredients right and in the right order. The first loaf is currently baking, but it hasnt filled up the whole pan. I guess will take her a couple of attempts to start doing it right.

Sir,

After a couple of washes, the problem repeats with the other cycle.

For safety tripping, should we also get the wiring and plug points checked?

What are the drawbacks of Parallel flow condenser (aluminium coils , fins, connecting pipes ) vs copper coils (with blue coated aluminium fins , copper connecting pipes) in split air conditioners ? As I understand automotive radiators have been all aluminium for a long time?

Any special skills required to work with aluminium pipes instead of traditional copper connecting pipes??

Please post a review of it. Does it have resume on power failure feature? What I reading for various models is that if the power failure is more than 10 minutes you have to start over.

drsingh, please see the dedicated Airconditioner thread: (Which home/office AC (air conditioner) to buy ?), where this (I think) has already been talked about.

Are you talking about installation or repair? for installation, (My experience with Sharp), the connecting pipes are still copper. If you are talking about repair, none of the soldering/brazing/welding techniques that the local-street repair men use will work with Aluminium.

I think I'm right in saying that, but further conversation should be in the mentioned thread.

Automotive radiators do have the benefit of on rushing air in helping increase the rate of heat exchange, which is not available in a static application for which Copper may be more desirable.

Al is not as conducive as Copper to be worked upon in the profiles required for tubing etc.

Very difficult to go for a remote diagnosis. So you have to get some trained joker to check out.

Have you tried, as a practice to change the program every time you start? I.e start with a dummy program and then do what you usually do as above? Does it work consistently? Sounds like a logic board issue to me. Try and get a second hand board and attempt a replacement.

Anyone here has used the Philips led tube light ? What is the feedback on using existing tube fixtures ? Is the light bright enough ? Does the price justify the savings practically ?

As per my knowledge the existing 26 watt T5 are a good source or diffused lighting and offer more/comparable lumens /watt.

Retrofit LED for existing T5 does not appeal to me. You can get more modern designs of wall/ceiling LED fixtures for lesser cost and better aesthetics.
