#300965 Sick of Not Making Any Money

Posted by Scottthewolf on 13 August 2014 - 10:20 PM

I start a new job on Monday with a company that has been in business since the 1950s.  I sense the beginning of a good job.

#300263 Asko D3251 Diverter Valve Replacement

Posted by Scottthewolf on 03 August 2014 - 11:28 PM

Whirlpool started using the same hose clamps and they have a recall on it already, the clamps come loose and flood the homeowners kitchen. So stupid trying to save money and now it costs them money.




#300258 LG WM2496H*M error code DE

Posted by Scottthewolf on 03 August 2014 - 10:04 PM

"DE" is a door open error code. Check the door lock for loose wires.  You might have to replace the door lock assembly.

#300151 Electrolux EI23CS55GS1 won't dispense cubes

Posted by Scottthewolf on 01 August 2014 - 11:17 PM

These all electronic refrigerators are starting to be very troublesome for Electrolux/Frigidaire.  The electronic controls have software communication issues. The easiest thing to do is quote the customer for all three of these parts. There are no replacing individual dispenser components, even the solenoid is not available separately, the whole dispenser module needs to be replaced.  

 

Here are the parts you will need:

 

Part number: 5303918558

This board is underneath the unit behind the front grille/kickplate.

#300122 Whirlpool GB2FHDXWB00 defrost problem

Posted by Scottthewolf on 01 August 2014 - 04:55 PM

It's the control board. These units have been noted for the control boards not initiating the defrost cycle on it's own.

#300088 Dacor ECS1305BK OVEN door does not fully close

Posted by Scottthewolf on 31 July 2014 - 11:07 PM

I think I am starting to show my age, but the most reliable appliances were the old fashioned ones from the 60's, 70's and 80's before all these electronic controls, energy saving fan motors, and before everything was made out of cheap plastic. Today, the brand name doesn't mean much anymore.

The inverter board is only for running the compressor, nothing else.

#300084 Maytag refrigerator RTP 1900DAE reliability

Posted by Scottthewolf on 31 July 2014 - 10:22 PM

The only other thing that goes bad in these older units, is the defrost heater and the defrost thermostat. They are a pain in the neck to replace on these because the freezer door has to be removed, the mullion strip (the divider in between the freezer and refrigerator compartment) needs to  be removed and the unit has to be turned off for a few days because there is a styrafoam divider under the freezer floor that wil break into pieces if you try to remove it when it's frozen.

 

In my opinion, use it until it fails, Don't do any more repairs on it.  Just buy a new one when it fails.
