In Topic: Frigidaire FDB641RJS0 dishwasher: clean below, dirty above

Wound up finding out the property owner's opinion was "Meh…thanks for trying, just go pick out a new one and send me the bill". Snagged a sweet deal on a Bosch SHE3ARF2UC that's been really good (this despite my previous difficulties with a Bosch SHX3AM05UC in my own house—once I squawked loudly enough, Bosch stepped up and made that right, so I gave 'em another chance).


In Topic: LG LRM2060ST µwave: turntable mostly doesn't

28 March 2014 - 09:58 PM

Update: LG were useless. "Ohhhh, gosh, gee, yeah, so we might have considered extending a courtesy repair to you, but you touched the motor, sooooo…later!"

 

Meanwhile, the confusing symptom came to a head this evening when I went to steam some collard stems fresh out of the garden: the covered glass bowl I put them in was at least as heavy as the glass turntable I removed, and yet it spun just fine. WuhTuhFuh???

 

I removed the platter support and had a closer look…a-HA! Flat spots on two of the three roller wheels, sufficiently large to prevent any turning with the weight of the platter directly on the roller. My guess is this support had some burrs that prevented the rollers spinning freely, and those burrs were eventually smoothed down but not before flat spots were scrubbed off. I'll put in a new support and I bet that's the end of it (and I'll have the extra super deluxe Super Spin model on account of having installed the 5-6 rpm motor in place of the factory 2-3 rpm unit). 

 

Then I'm putting this micro on Craigslist and getting another Panasonic NE-1054 commercial µwave—which has no turntable.

Meanwhile, grab some popcorn and watch this movie of my microwave with/without the glass platter:

Shall do. If I had it to do over again, I would get one of these instead. I may still do that (and get another of these -- the Panasonic on the left) but I want to fix the LG even if it's gonna go.
