How to fix a GE PFSS6 or PFSF6 (made by Samsung) that won't make ice or has a noisy ice maker

Posted by Samurai Appliance Repair Man, in Refrigerator Repair 13 July 2011 · 1,357 views

Look at the blue tag on the bottom of the icemaker. If the date is prior to March 1, 2008, replace the icemaker ==> Icemaker Part Link

Now go to the back of the fridge and open the metal cover to the muthaboard cubby and look at the software version to the left of the CPU; if it's less than 4.02, replace the muthaboard ==> Muthaboard Part Link

Tips for installing a new transmission, tub seal and bearing in a Frigidaire / Kenmore stack laundry top-loading washer

Posted by Samurai Appliance Repair Man, in Washing Machine Repair 10 July 2011 · 1,828 views


I pushed down the top piece of the seal over the transmission shaft (with the rubber o-ring facing down) I used axel grease on the spin bearing.


Oops! prepare to disassemble unit and flip the top part of the seal so that the bronze disc contacts the ceramic face of the boot seal, then work the rubber ring carefully into the centre of the disc, compressing it so it remains tight to the shaft. Do not use any lube on this seal - not a good idea to put grease into the tub bearing either as it will accumulate underneath and "gum up the works". The bushing is oilite so it has oil (not grease) injected in it during manufacture.
As for the springs, the one that doesn't match with the other 2 will have more tension and gets installed 180 degrees from the motor so it offsets the motor weight and aids in balancing - and yes, you can install the other agitator for your style of transmission. Did you use the electrical duplex boxes to extend and hold the springs open during disassembly/assembly ?

How to replace the glass cooktop on a GE Spectra range

Posted by Samurai Appliance Repair Man, in Oven-Range-Stove Repair 10 July 2011 · 2,545 views

If you were referring to replacing the "cook Top"

it's pretty simple....

turn off power

open oven door

remove the 3 or 4 screws that hold the top down in the front

raise top up, use a board or something to securely hold the top up
as you will need 2 hands to remove burner assemblies.

burners should be mounted on plates, remove the entire plate
with burners attached carefully laying them down.

repeat with rear burner assembly

now the top is ready to remove.

Normally it just sits on the hinges in the back,
there shouldn't be any screws holding it on
but you may have to look at the hinge closely
to see how the top needs to be manipulated to
remove it.
