I use that Ge diagnostic tool all the time. It's worth the money. I actually got my display out of an old refrigerator. Worth every penny
Sounds good. It's main use is for the GE with the manual knobs right? Do you usually hook into the connector under the grill or what? I really never knew how to run diagnostics on a GE until I was browsing through some GE troubleshooting files on here and thought it might come in handy for testing defrost. Instead of pulling the fridge out and jumping the heater like I usually to help defrost or do my ohm checks. At least know I know how to run diagnostics on the ones already equipped with the display. I wanted to be able to run a diagnostic on a GE SxS dual evap inverter compressor fridge the other day because I wasn't convinced it was running full speed. The freezer temp controls were on the door though, and was a lot different then I'd ever seen. I'd be curious to know if I plugged up the diagnostic tool if it would work in place of the door display. The board looked like the basic one used for the older dual evap units. Either way, I ended up installing a dye drier thinking it was a leak issue, and they haven't called me back for it not cooling yet.. Going back this week to look for dye, but I find it doubtful I'll find anything. It seemed to still have a decent amount of refrigerant still in it.
Ideally it would be nice to get a display off of a junked GE fridge, but most of those tthat come in are easily fixed and resold.

Just looked up the WP 240volt outlet tester. It is about $40 each for us. Not to shabby.
Yea, if you get it from a parts supplier. I think Marcone had it for $84.

My favorite tester is between my ears. My eyeball look for stuff......my nose sniff for stuff......my ears listen for clinks, squeals
Unfortunately, the engineers who designed the latest appliances did not use that "which is (supposedly) between their ears" thus many times using "what is between your ears" won't help. Also with the new electronics, many times you cannot see, smell or hear anything wrong other than an obvious symptom

Does anybody have a link to the whirlpool 240V outlet tester? To purchase one that is.
