#300054 Panasonic Inverter Microwave (NN-SD762S)

Posted by Scottthewolf on Yesterday, 03:57 PM

Most of these new microwave ovens have bleeder resistors that discharge the capacitor automatically after you unplug the unit.  You really should NOT need to touch the capacitor.

 

Make sure the ribbon connector from the touch panel to the electronic control board is connected properly.




#300052 Frigidaire refrig FGUS2642LF2 ice dispenser not working

Posted by Scottthewolf on Yesterday, 03:30 PM

These newfangled units with all the electronic controls have been very troublesome.  Mainly, the dispenser control board, the dispenser module and the main power board have had communication issues of not talking to each other. 

 

I would quote the customer for all 3 parts. Just explain to the customer that you didn't build the unit with all these electronic controls. 

 

Once you get the dispenser well drip tray removed there is one screw holding on the dispenser housing at the bottom, look for any other screws, but the dispenser trim should just pry off.  There is no just replacing the solenoid anymore, you have to replace the whole dispenser module.  The main power board is at the bottom of the unit behind the grille/kickplate, to access it , just remove the grille, a single 1/4 nut holds the board to the bottom of the refrigerator and then pull it forward. 

 

Here are the parts you will need:

#299976 GE side by side (psc23nstd ss) Ice wont dispence..

Posted by Scottthewolf on 30 July 2014 - 04:21 PM

Sometimes the wiring in the lower freezer door hinge  breaks.  Also you could have a bad ice auger motor. A bad dispenser control board could be the issue too.




#299902 GE elec dryer: top of dryer gets too hot DBXR463EG6WW

Posted by Scottthewolf on 29 July 2014 - 05:55 PM

You should have double checked that both elements are ok. Sometimes one of the elements will short to ground before it breaks. Remember, most GE electric dryers use 2 heating elements in a parallel circuit.




#299891 Maytag Performa MTW5740TQ0 control console

Posted by Scottthewolf on 29 July 2014 - 01:26 PM

Insert a putty knife in each corner of the console where the console meets the top of the washer to release the spring clips.




#299824 frigidaire fwx223lbs5 intermittent water leakage

Posted by Scottthewolf on 28 July 2014 - 07:41 PM

Also check the main outer tub seal just above the transmission shaft, these can be a source for intermittent leaks.




#299816 GE wsm2700daww agitates, drains but won't spin

Posted by Scottthewolf on 28 July 2014 - 07:20 PM

Nope, just checked with Frigidaire, it's no longer available separately. 

 

They made this change when they went from the old style LGS spring to the one way clutch bearing.

 

My bad, the transmission is still available as a Frigidaire part. Just a little cheaper coming from Frigidaire than the rip off artists at GE.

You're welcome.  GO BOSTON BRUINS!




#299811 GE wsm2700daww agitates, drains but won't spin

Posted by Scottthewolf on 28 July 2014 - 06:59 PM

I'm not sure either, can you post a picture of the part? 

 

Unfortunately the Frigidaire equivalent of the transmission is no longer available.  So you will have to pay top dollar for the same part in a GE package. At this price, who would want to go through the trouble of repairing it??

#299808 AMANA washer Model ALW880QAW Replaced the belt...now what?

Posted by Scottthewolf on 28 July 2014 - 06:51 PM

Remember, the idler pulley rides on the outside of the belt, not the inside of it.




#299634 Frigidaire FFFS5115PW - Bleach tray always filled with water

Posted by Scottthewolf on 26 July 2014 - 03:56 PM

Also advise your customers NOT to use liquid fabric softener. Liquid fabric softener builds up after awhile and eventually turns to mold.




#299373 Voicemail messages

Posted by Scottthewolf on 22 July 2014 - 10:45 PM

I hate it when they say call ahead to meet them  and I get their voicemail or the voicemail is full.  I have been burned so many times by that, I go and do another call. If they don't call back, it's their problem, not mine.




#299099 fridge evap motors

Posted by Scottthewolf on 19 July 2014 - 10:45 PM

If you see Panasonic on any evaporator or condenser fan motor, you  know it's junk for sure.




#299008 417-98702891 Sears Kenmore combo drains but won't spin

Posted by Scottthewolf on 18 July 2014 - 04:20 PM

This washer does not have brakes to keep the wash basket from indexing during agitation and to stop the wash basket at the end of the spin cycle. The washer is designed to spin  the wash basket in the clockwise direction only. It is not supposed to turn at all in the counterclockwise direction. Because this washer does not have a brake to stop the wash basket at the end of the spin cyle, the lid locks during the spin cycle.

 

Therefore there are only 4 things to keep the wash basket from spinning:

 

1.) Foreign objects or articles of clothing caught in between the wash basket and the outer tub

 

2.) A worn or seized belt tensioner (idler pulley)

 

3.) A worn or seized tub bearing (usually due to a worn outer tub seal)

 

4.) A bad transmission, which unfortunately is no longer available as a replacement part.
