Just when I've seen it all, I've run into a repair done by a Jive Turkey Repairman on a GE dryer.  Instead of replacing a whole control panel because the tabs that hold the rotary start switch in are broken, he used plastic zip ties to  hold the switch in the control panel.  Well, the zip tie he used finally broke.

 

The moral of the story is, repair the unit back to the original factory condition, don't cut corners.  It will only create call backs. If you do cut corners by trying NOT to order or replace parts, make sure you tell the customer what you are doing and that you cannot warranty the repair.

 

Do it right or don't do it at all.
