  1. It's taking forever for it to get cold!   My last freezer had a similar issue and it was due to lack of Freon (or refrigerant). Many speculated that it was due to an internal leak.    I couldn't risk all of my food going bad to a possible future and sudden breakdown, so I needed to return it ASAP.   After persistently contacting the store that sells these used freezers over the course of days, they finally replace it today.   And instead of this freezer using Freon gas, it uses something called R134A. This upright freezer can store up to 5.3 Oz. (149 Grams) of it.       My main concern now is that it has been 3 hours since it was delivered and it's not freezing cold yet!!    I plugged it in and it's not cold or freezing temperature!! The store staff said to wait for at least an hour after plugging it in for better results, but I don't see any better results!!   I really, really hope there isn't a leak in this one too! It seems like it may be low on refrigerant, such is a bad sign...     Here are some pictures of this product: https://tinyurl.com/h3onvap   Here is the video to hear want the freezer sounds like: https://tinyurl.com/glfoctg  
  2. Hello. Recently, I purchased a refurbished freezer. The product is under temporary warranty for at least the next 30 days.   From the time they delivered the freezer up until now, it was extremely warm and had zero coolness. It had no frost and wasn't freezing at all.   I complained to them over the phone for the last 2 days.   Before the product left the store, all of the staff said, "but it was working beautifully and very frío" and that they "put plenty of Freon in it." When the product came to my house it wasn't working properly.   I called yesterday morning and they said they'll send someone out to fix it. A few hours later that day, no one showed up. So I called again and they said, "We'll just get a new one for you."    Earlier today, the store manager told me, "the freezer doesn't NEED an exchange right now." Later today, he came to load the Freon into the compressor. He said his "didn't put enough Freon in it." He said Freon can "last for YEARS and YEARS" and he'll only exchange it if it stops working. I'm not 100% comfortable with this broken-on-arrival product. I'm pretty sure that whether or not it's working that I can still exchange this for another freezer. The other freezer they have is an upright freezer, which I prefer to have. They are a "no refund, exchange only" kind of store. I'm currently stuck with an Amana-brand 7.0 cu ft chest freezer. The model number is C101DW.    This almost perfectly describes my situation (I'm not 100% sure about the leak though): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j24Bu-8eLyQ   Does adding Freon, a refrigerant/coolant, to a freezer indicate that there is an undiagnosed issue with the appliance? The guy that was loading it with Freon said it's supposed to have 7 ounces of Freon ideally.    Here are the pictures of my freezer: https://tinyurl.com/freezerpic1 https://tinyurl.com/freezerpic2 http://tinyurl.com/freezerpic3 http://tinyurl.com/freezerpic4 http://tinyurl.com/freezerpic5 http://tinyurl.com/freezerpic6 http://tinyurl.com/freezerpic7 http://tinyurl.com/freezerpic8   He said there is a leak ONLY if the freezer is over 0 degrees and if it makes certain sound. Currently, the freezer temperature is under 0 degrees according.   Also, I noticed that the access panel is missing. Without this, the compressor can easily be viewed and perhaps exposed.   Sorry if this post is too long. Could someone please confirm if the information they provided to me is accurate?

  4. Does anyone have a service manual for Ge microwave Model # JVM1750DM1WW? I searched the downloads and nothing came back.   Sorry for double post. While editing the topic, I pressed something that posted it before I was done & I don't see how to delete the topic. Many apologies.
  5. I am a DIY 28 year old male in Mesa, Arizona.  Never worked much on appliances though.  I now humble myself before the professionals.   My KitchenAid (Model KFIS25XVMS9) refrigerator is not making ice.   The situation:  I hear it a few times an hour swinging around (actually it sounds like it swings too often, maybe once every 5 minutes), so I assume it is running through its cycle.  What I do not hear is the sound of water filling the mold like I used to.  Before it completely stopped making ice, the cubes seem to be getting smaller and smaller over the past 6 months or so.    I'm not sure if this is related or not, but the temperature alarm went off for a couple days intermittently for both the fridge saying it was too warm (got up to 55 degrees as read on the front display).  This freaked me out for a while because it seem to come out of nowhere.  I cleaned the coils and unplugged the fridge, and the next day it came back on again.  It seemed to regain its temperature (no alarm sounding) since it has not gone off for the last two weeks (fingers crossed).  I have a two year old, and I'm thinking he just kept opening the fridge too much.   What I have tried already: -Cleaned the coils (they were not very dirty) -Straighten the water hose (There is no RO water system) -Turned the ice maker on and off (I left it off once for about 4 days and then turned it on, it made small cubes for a week or so then stopped again) -Unplugged the fridge (only for about half an hour to see if it would reset anything)   My thoughts: I don't think it is water pressure -- but it I have not eliminated it yet.  The water to the front seems to have plenty of pressure.  I changed the filter and I am not positive it ever made ice after that though.  I am fairly positive that it is the right filter. Water valve failure?  Would the front be working still? Should it be hearing the ice maker activity this often?   My questions: Is it possible I got a bad filter or installed it wrong?   If it was a bad filter or installed wrong, how could the water to the front still seem normal? What do professionals use to measure temperature?  I have a infrared pistol style thermometer, it seems to measure higher than what I would think.  for example, the front display for freezer is set to 0 degrees, but the thermometer measures 11 in some areas.  Is this normal or abnormal?   I provided and asked quite a bit of info.  Sorry for the novel, but thank you in advance for your help!  If you recommend repair or replacing please be thorough in your recommendation (provide location of part and steps, or affordable place to purchase).

  11. Who Made My Kenmore?

    From the album Miscellaneous

    Magic Kenmore model number decoder.
  12. Hello!   Glad to see the Samurai still online. Ten years ago I spent $50 for him to repair my freezer by phone and it was the best investment ever!   I have just moved to a house with a gas line shutoff in the garage...perfect for my wife's gas dryer. Problem is, if I put the dryer at the end of the 60' appliance connector, it's still in the way of where the car goes!   Can I connect another appliance connector tube of 60" to make a ten foot line? That will reach my dryer with a foot or two to spare. If I wrap the mail ends fof all the fittings with plumber's tape as I would with a single hookup, will this two-tube daisy chan be effective and safe?   Yes, the mfg directions say to not do it. So let's explore this hypothetically if necessary...   And if the answer is NO then what would you suggest for a connection that is eight to ten feet away from my appliance?   Thanks!
