Now Accepting Applications for the Samurai Appliance Tech Boot Camp Beta Class!

ATBC, boot camp and 1 more...
The Samurai Appliance Tech Boot Camp is currently in the Beta testing phase. Final pricing for tuition will be announced after the Beta phase. The Beta class will be a very small group of carefully selected early testers who agree to provide constructive feedback for improving the course. After the Beta period, all students will pay the full tuition at the current rates.

The specially-reduced tuition for the Beta class is $100 for the first half of the course, Part 1: Fundamentals. This is a fraction of what the full tuition for Part 1 will be. Financing is available.

If you would like to be considered for the Beta testing group, please submit your application by Tuesday, April 8, 2014.

The Boot Camp will be open for the Beta class to begin their studies on April 13.

Part 2 of the Boot Camp is still in development and its Beta period will be announced later.


Samurai Appliance Tech Boot Camp Sample Course

ATBC, boot camp, training, sample
We're still pecking away like little Woody Woodpeckers writing unit lessons, making screencasts, creating quizzes, working from sun up to moon rise to get Part 1 of the Samurai Appliance Tech Boot Camp ready to unleash on an unsuspecting and woefully unprepared world by April 13. Yep, that's our deadline so picked because it's right before Holy Week. Seemed like a good place for a deadline.

Meanwhile, as promised in my last post, I've prepared a little morsel of the course which you are invited to sample. The purpose of this sample is not so much to give you a peek into the course content, although it does that, but rather to give you an idea of the look and feel of the course. If you're not familiar with online learning, this may help give you an idea of what it's like. To take the sample course, Kommen zie hither, bitte.

The other important part of the course, which you won't see unless you're enrolled, is the forum where you can ask questions and get help on the units you're working on that are giving you trouble. Between the quizzes and the forums, Samurai Appliance Tech Boot Camp is the web's premiere interactive appliance repair learning experience.


Samurai Appliance Tech Boot Camp Update

appliance training and 2 more...
Just wanted to give a quick update on the Samurai Appliance Tech Boot Camp. Don't think we've forgotten about it! In fact, just the opposite-- developing the course has been an all-consuming task for me and Mrs. Samurai (she's a world-class technical editor). You can get a sneak-peak and what we've been doing at the Boot Camp website: http://ApplianceTechBootCamp.com

You won't be able to click into the units and view the contents but you can see the basic course structure and the units that we've completed or are in the process of editing.

The course will be fully interactive with many of the units requiring an 80% score to pass and advance to the next unit or module. The quizzes are automatically and instantly graded so there's no waiting for the test results before moving on. In this way, the entire course is kept self-paced.

Also, if a student has questions about the material or needs more explanation about something, that's available in the Forums at the Boot Camp site.

Please let me know if you have any comments or questions! Would love to have your comments and feedback at this point in the development because it would be very easy to incorporate those changes.


ASTI 2014, Evernote Edition

ASTI, 2014, evernote
Well, mah bruvahs, heading out on that big ol' jet airliner from Logan tomorrow afternoon making that long haul to San Diego for the 2014 ASTI. Looking forward to seeing some of you there and will miss those of you who can't make it this year.

For my absentee brethren, the Samurai's got your six! I'll be taking copious notes and will post them all as PDFs in the Downloads section when I return. Additionally, if any of you have any specific questions you'd like me to ax the instructors, please post them as comments to this blog post (so I can keep them all in one place and make sure I get them asked).

Also, one more goodie: I'll be posting various highlight notes and photos from the conference to a public Evernote notebook. You can check in periodically to see what's new as the conference progresses. Access the Evernote ASTI notebook here: https://www.evernote...oidman/asti2014


Programming Instructions for the HV Control Board used in some Whirlpool-built Bottom Mount Refrigerators

Posted by Samurai Appliance Repair Man, in Refrigerator Repair 06 February 2014 · 1,378 views
programming, control board and 4 more...
Some models of Whirlpool-built bottom mount refrigerators use a high-voltage control board that, at some point, you may need to replace. These boards are used in certain models of Whirlpool, Maytag, and Kenmore-branded bottom mount refrigerators.

Here's what the HV board looks like: Part number: AP4568436

Part number: AP4568436


When you replace this HV control board, you will need to program it to work in your particular model. If you don't program the new HV board, you'll get the error code PEO 000 in the display.

The new control Board may or may not come with programming instructions. In case your replacement board does not, here are the programming instructions you'll need to get things running.

Programming Mode:

NOTE: The Program Code is located on the Serial Plate on this unit after the word "Code."

1. Press and hold the Door Alarm Keypad .

2. Press and hold Freezer Temperature Down Keypad within 3 seconds .

3. Release the Door Alarm Keypad and wait 3 seconds.

4. The control will display PE to indicate the programming mode.

5. Entry is confirmed by pressing the Freezer Temperature Down Keypad once more.

6. The control will display the current Program CODE. This value should be validated with the Program CODE printed on the unit serial plate. NOTE: If the Program CODE is correct, the Programming Mode is exited by pressing Door Alarm Keypad for 3 seconds.

7. Press the Refrigerator Temperature Up Keypad or Refrigerator Down Keypad to change the digit value with each key press.

8. The decimal point indicates the selected digit. Press the Freezer Temperature Up Keypad to select the next digit.

9. Once the desired Program CODE is entered, press and hold the Freezer Temperature Down Keypad until the Program CODE begins flashing indicating it has been saved. NOTE: If you attempt to enter an invalid Program CODE the control will not save the new code, but will beep. (The unit will NOT run with a Program CODE of 0000).

Once the Program CODE has been saved the Programming Mode is exited by pressing any key. If the new code is incorrect this process should be repeated. The Programming mode can be exited at any time by pressing Door Alarm key for 3 seconds or will exit if unattended for four minutes.
