Troubleshooting a Whirlpool Refrigerator Motorized Damper Assembly

Posted by Samurai Appliance Repair Man, in Repair Videos, Refrigerator Repair 20 June 2012 · 1,070 views
whirlpool, refrigerator, damper
The complaint on this refrigerator was that it's freezing food in the Fresh Food compartment (aka., Beer Compartment). On this particular design, the motorized damper has a been a problem point. One common problem is that the vanes get frozen in place by frost and then break when the damper motor tries to move them. That wasn't the case here. This one took sublime troubleshooting skills to identify the source of the freezing problem. It did involve the damper assembly but only as a secondary effect to the primary failure. Watch with wonder as The Appliance Guru uses ancient and mystical appliantological troubleshooting techniques to divine the real problem sequence here.



Here are the part links to the damper and control board:

Fixing a Loud Noise in a Bosch Dryer

Finding the source of this noise in this Bosch dryer was tricky. Judging by the sound, the noise had to originate from either the motor or the blower wheel. The problem turned out to be the blower wheel. The noise was only heard in a heated dryer cycle. Apparently the heated air would deform the plastic blower wheel just enough to make it contact the blower housing while rotating.



Here are the part links to the drum rollers and blower wheel that I used to fix this dryer:

Locating a leak source in a Whirlpool direct-drive washer

This customer called in saying his washer was leaking but it was from somewhere up top. He had even put the washer on blocks and knew for sure that the leak was not from the bottom. This service call is a great illustration of the Golden Rule of Appliance Repair: Never, ever trust customer diagnostics. This customer has a PhD in mechanical engineering. If you were ever going to trust customer diagnostics, this may have been one of those times. Watch as I show the customer that the leak originates from the same exact place as do most leaks in this washer: from the pump down below in front.

Diagnosing a Couple of Problems with the Door on a Frigidaire Dishwasher

Posted by Samurai Appliance Repair Man, in Repair Videos, Dishwasher Repair 29 May 2012 · 575 views

The door on this dishwasher has a couple things going on with it: it falls down heavily when it's opened and the front panel is separating from the rest of the door. The customer called me in to assess the problems and give an estimate for the repairs so they could decide whether to repair or replace the dishwasher. Watch with shock and awe as The Appliance Guru immediately hones in on the problems with the accuracy and precision that only his calibrated eyeballs can bring to the job!

Fixing a Frigidaire top-load washer that won't pump out

This customer contacted me at 2AM Saturday morning of Memorial Day Weekend via the Service Call Request form at the homepage of my website, www.ApplianceGuru.com, and I was there in just a few hours. That's SOP for The Appliance Guru!

The customer was at his condo by the golf course for the weekend and the washer in his Frigidaire stacked laundry unit wouldn't pump out. That can really put a wet towel on a vacation! I disassembled the pump and found a golf tee jamming the impeller. In the video, I described it as "foreign object" because the customer didn't me want to say it was a golf tee in front of his wife and get him trouble. Vacation and marital harmony both saved by The Appliance Guru!
