  1. I've run into a few of these over the years from multiple model numbers and would like to share what I've found with the rest of you guys so hopefully you don't have to learn the hard way. Symptom is that the freezer will not get cold and they may tell you about a hiss even. You get there and put your gauges on it and find it's drawing a suction on the process tube. So after pressure testing the system you find there's a leak in the hot gas loop. Well here's where it turns into a mess. That hole in the gas line is allowing water to get into the sealed system and you'll never get it out. The only solution is a total sealed system replacement and a really good flush out of the remaining lines using either rx11 or some sort of refrigeration system flush to flush both the condenser and the mullion heater lines to get everything out, followed by nitrogen to flush out the flush. Here's the last one I ran into, somewhat start to finish along with follow up pictures of the evaporator and compressor cut open to reveal the water that gets sucked into the system and what the water will do to the internals of the compressor. Some are just pictures of brazes. Sometimes I'll take a pic of the backside to look at them, sometimes I think they're pretty, and sometimes I'll just document it to look at 10 years from now. Anyway I left the album raw, meaning if I took a pic that wasn't fuzzy I put it in the album. This job took me 5 1/2 hours to finish and I did it in place not removing the refrigerator from the cabinet.  http://imgur.com/a/2xJaZ

  4. I have a Dacor PGM365 gas cooktop where the front two burners light fine, but, when you cover them with a pan, the igniters turn back on.  The igniters stop clicking if you uncover the burner.   I suspect it might be a grounding issue, but not sure how to track down because the problem only occurs when the burner is on and covered with a pan. Has anyone heard of such a thing?
  5.     I have been asked to work on a I believe 1977 tappan propane cooktop.   The local propane company sent the customer to me.   To find the problem was easy  to find the part not so easy.   The model number is 1034 what I need is the burner gas control valve.   All the numbers on the plate for the unit goes AZ14 6311-26-1034-8649 above the 26 it says part number above the 1034 it says   model number and above the 8649 it says serial number.
  6. I have a Carrier Weathermaker model 9200 which is throwing an error code 31 for the pressure switch.  After researching a bit online I found that one of the drain lines could be clogged.  I pulled all three lines and they were fine, they didn't have any backed up water and I could blow through them.  I then checked the fan motor which appears to be spinning fine when the system in on.  It spins freely by hand when the system is off.     Up in the furnace window I never see the glow of the starter.  It apparently never gets to that point in the startup.   Any thoughts?   Don

  13. Dear Friends: This question isn't specifically about repairing a natural gas clothes dryer.  I very much want to cut down on my utility bills.  My current laundry room actually has two compact washers and two properly vented compact dryers located in it.  Both dryers are electric.  This laundry room also includes a sink and a toilet.  My hope has been to get rid of the two compact sets and put in a single decent sized (not jumbo) stackable washer and natural gas dryer.  When I contacted the local gas company (who seems to be one of the few plumbers who will actually work with natural gas) the salesman came out and said no problem.  He called me back a few hours later and said they can't do an install in there because it is a bathroom.  He said code wouldn't allow it, and the inspector wouldn't pass it.    There is a small exhaust fan in the bathroom that doesn't move much air.  Tall ceiling and large window in there.  The space is small, but it is not a closet.  I understand that one can produce and share methane gases when "taking care of business", but is there really a high risk that that would cause a combustible explosion?  There seems to be no natural gas dryer that would permit all incoming air to be from the outside, although I technically have two 4" holes in my walls, one of which could be used.    I'm totally comfortable moving the gas line upstairs (large basement underneath laundry room) as I hooked up my my natural gas cooktop several years ago.  Obviously my work would not get inspected.  Again, I feel totally comfortable doing the work myself.  I just really want someone to help me understand how probable the danger level would be.  Would there be certain do's and don'ts that I would need to keep in mind if the units are installed and running?  I've seen conflicting information online and would like it from someone who has experience.  Thank you,   Andrew Sugg Durham NC 
  14. I have an LG Gas Range that is posting an F0 error code on the control panel.  The model number is LRG30357ST.  The control panel works intermittently and when it does not all the numbers work.  Any suggestions or ideas would be greatly appreciated.   Also a service manual would be great for it if possible.   -Split55

  23. Requesting manual or tech sheet for kenmore (frigidiare made) gas dryer model: 417.93042300
  24. Good afternoon fellow fixers and alemeisters, I have a Maytag Neptune Gas Dryer MDG4000BWW that heats up for perhaps 30 seconds but then goes cold. I have removed the front cover and turned the unit on only to see the igniter glow, then the gas comes on and burns just fine, but then goes out shortly thereafter with the drum still spinning. A couple of days ago it had the same problem and there was a gas odor as well. There are so many electrical components connected down there, can anyone pinpoint any one particular one or should I disconnect them all and test them? Thank you for your time and have a great day!! Rod
