Got a peek of what they look like here:

http://www.amiparts....e~pcs.nm~tester|

TOUCH PAD TESTER, Take the guess work out of troubleshooting TouchPads!!!! AMI introduces the latest in Touchpad testing technology. The new TT2000-AP will quickly and accurately locate problem cells in virtually any touchpad with a flat ribbonup to 1 1/2 inches wide with 16 or less veins.  Buy no more printed circuit boards when all you really need is the touchpad. One wrong quess more than pays for the new touchpad tester. The new TT2000-AP requires no batteries and is built rugged to last for years, yet compact enough to fit in your shirt pocket

I just ordered one from here

 

http://www.amiparts....BAFEDC9&page=16

 

$39.95 + $11 shipping

 

If it saves me from trying to clamp those thin alligator leads precisely on a vein, it will be worth it's price 10 fold.

 

I'll let you know how it works out.

TT2000_t.jpgTT2000-AP_t.jpg

Not able to find much info on them

 

Two different models shown in the pics above:

 

LEFT PIC: TT2000. $49.95 + S/H at www.AppliancePartsOnline.net. No image of actual model on their website.

 

But..... at www.amiparts.com:

 

TT2000_t.jpg
SKU: TT2000
$64.94 + S/H

 

RIGHT PIC: TT2000-AP.  $39.95 at www.amiparts.com.

TT2000-AP_t.jpg
SKU: TT2000-AP
$39.95 + S/H

 

?-AP model for appliance use?

 

This model not listed at AppliancePartsOnline.net.

 

Vague information from both websites.  So not clear on the exact differences between the two models.  Hate to spend that much mola and not know what you really are getting.

 

I did email AppliancePartsOnline requesting more info.  I'll post their response, if they send one.

 

Either way, looks like a cool tool.


I think this will work. I once saw it on a cartoon.

Or, on the other hand.....

Troubleshooting the appliance's complex electro-mechanical systems is the methodology in which one must, by using analyitical techniques and the process of elimination, determine the cause or causes of a specific failure. Rarely does this cause of a failure directly present itself for you to see.

So.....

To be better equipped to troubleshoot, you will need:

1.) To follow this: Safety first and foremost. Trust your instincts.
2.) Basic hand tools.
3.) A decent DVOM meter. Buy one. Borrow one. You need one.
4.) Last, but certainty not least, common sense. Most of us have it. Slow down and use it.

Now, let's have some fun!

Just heard back from my contact at Whirlpool about the 'green board' testers:

 

As for the membrane testers I have not seen one of these in a number of years. These were given out before I joined Whirlpool 7 years ago. 


I check our WP accessories catalog. I spoke to Graham and Don my fellow trainers. They no longer have any of these. 

I am sorry to say we do not have any of these available any more.

Haven't had a chance to test it out yet, but looks like it will be worth it's weight in gold.

Never received a response from Appliance Parts Online as of today.

 

BEdwards, have you had a chance to use it yet?

Yes, get you one today. Just slip the ribbon connector into the device, hook up your test leads to the built in alligator clips, and start pressing keys. It either shows continuity or not. So easy.
