Topics I've Started

GE PCVH480EKW0W dryer suspiciously cool exhaust

21 November 2014 - 08:00 PM

Korean-made (By…LG??), serial number RD700753N, purchased new and installed less than a month ago. New installation with new rigid metal exhaust ducting: vertical from dryer location approx 5 feet, 90-degree bend, then horizontal approx 9 feet, through wall to outside. Short metal flex duct connects dryer to rigid duct. 

 

Dryer seems to work, but metal exhaust duct right at the dryer is oddly cool even when dryer is set on maximum "Antibacterial" heat level. It gets warmish, but not very warm and certainly not as hot as I'm accustomed to. 

 

Is this the new norm, or is there a possible defect or problem here? 


Snap-Pop-Stink on Frigidaire CFEF312GSB range

15 November 2014 - 07:11 PM

Frigidaire model CFEF312GSB serial VF90936776 electric range. Once right rear (large) surface burner gets hot, there are periodic "SNAP" and "POP" noises and the smell of burning bakelite. I thought the burner socket would be found in toasted condition, but no, it's perfect: contacts springy and shiny, housing as new, no burnt smell. Wires, likewise, appear perfect. Am I correct to suspect the burner on/off/temperature control "infinite switch"?

 

(And why is it called an "infinite switch", anyhow?)


Bosch dishwasher SHE3ARF2UC parts/manual?

02 March 2014 - 11:36 PM

I have two Bosch dishwashers, a SHX3AM05UC from 2009 and a SHE3ARF2UC just installed. The lower rack in the SHX3 was already upgraded by Bosch (as a goodwill gesture on their part) to the same rack that came with the new SHE3. I like the SHE3 upper rack better (adjustable height, more adjustable tines), and would like to put one in the SH3X. Can't find a parts manual to draw up a list of what-all I'll need for this swap. Anyone got?

 

Thanks!


Thermador WO-16 manuals?

10 February 2014 - 10:30 PM

Got a 1949 Thermador WO-16, serial 9209, in my (originally my grandparents') kitchen. Photos attached. Would like to have whatever literature might be chased down for it. Anyone?


LG LRM2060ST µwave: turntable mostly doesn't

29 December 2013 - 12:29 PM

LG microwave

Model: LRM2060ST
Serial: 006TABN01309

 

Turntable turns maybe 1/4 turn or so, then stops and just weakly oscillates a degree or two clockwise and counterclockwise for the duration of cooking time. Hand-rotating the 3-arm turntable support gives steady mechanical resistance and an uninterrupted gear-reduction noise, which leads me to suspect a faulty motor. Confirm/Refute/Correct?

 

I can haz service manual?

 

Thanks!
