How to fix a Whirlpool-Kenmore gas range with no gas coming out the cooktop surface burners

Posted by Samurai Appliance Repair Man, in Oven-Range-Stove Repair 05 August 2011 · 1,935 views

The real solution was listed in the tech sheet provided below by RegUS_PatOff

A normally closed (N.C.) electrical solenoid
is located on the back of the range that will
provide a means of shutting off the gas
supply to the cooktop burners. This 120-volt
solenoid is connected across the L1 and
Neutral sides of the line and controlled by a
relay on the microcomputer board. See
Strip Circuit, page 3.
The solenoid is held open to allow gas to
flow to the cooktop burners. If a customer
wants to “Lockout” the operation of the
cooktop burners, they can hold down the
TOP/TOP LIGHT keypad on the control
panel for 5 seconds.
See Use and Care
This will open the relay and disconnect the
electrical supply to the solenoid. Once the
electrical supply is disconnected from the
solenoid, the solenoid will close and stop
gas flow to the cooktop. In the event of a
power outage, the gas supply to the
cooktop burners will be shut off.

How to replace the thermal fuse in a Maytag Neptune MDG6800AWW dryer

Posted by Samurai Appliance Repair Man, in Dryer Repair 04 August 2011 · 6,723 views

Open the door and remove the 2 phillips screws in the hinges (item 20),
remove the 2 phillips screw on the opposite side where the hinges
would be if the door was reversed (item 35)

Flex the 2 upright pieces of item # 22 and pull forward and remove.

The front bulk head item # 29 is held in place with (2) screws on each side.
You will notice that there are 3 screws on each side but one of them on each
side only hols the bulk head together..doesn't actually attach it to the frame.

Once the screws are remove the screws and brackets item # 27.

Now you can raise the top about 2" and pull the bulk head off.
There will be door switch wires attached...you can either leave them in place
or disconnect from the door switch...just remember their locations.

The thermal fuse is item # 40...It will be attached to item # 43 should read "closed" with your meter
or 0 continuity.

If this is the culprit make sure you clean the bulk head / filter housing
as well as check your venting thuroughly for a clogg or restriction.
