I just want to introduce myself.

My name is Lane and I have been battling appliances for 15 years now.  I worked for a local Whirlpool dealer straight out of high school for 6 years. Seeking more money I started my own repair business and have been at it for 9 years. I work out of my home and do pretty well for my fam with it.  Problem is I have been basically doin it blind with just wiring diagrams(if provided). Whenever I get into a bind I always turn to the net and seem to always end up here. So today i took the plung on the 99 year membership because its a hell of a bargain for help with service manuals and when I get stumped.

Even though I've been doing this for awile I still consider myself green and learn new things every day. I look forward to learning, exchanging problems and solutions with all of you, and I also have plenty of stories to share.

C u all around!

Greetings from the great frozen north. I have been doing appliance repair on and off for 20 + years and I didn't realize how little I knew until I joined this group . Found every one more than willing to help and over loaded with wisdom.

Welcome Lane II, you've already learned the most important lesson and that's that you'll always be learning, we are all just "forever Grasshoppers". The only difference between Onions and Bag pipes is that no tears are shed while chopping Bag Pipes!

Welcome, Lane II!

The more, the merrier!

And this IS an awesome forum...much to be learned, and as previously mentioned here, it IS an ongoing process...the learning stuff, that is...
"If you want your tree to produce plenty o' fruit, you've got to cut it back from time to time. Same thing with your neural cells. Some people might call it brain damage. I call it prunin'".
