#248491 KitchenAid KEHC379JBL4 Combo wall oven microwave trouble

Posted by Scottthewolf on 14 February 2013 - 02:16 PM

Those microwaves are overkill.  They need to have the door open to the left like a normal one, not down. In my opinion, microwave ovens that are part of a normal oven aren't worth the money, because they are a pain in the neck to repair and you are married to them until you replace the regular oven.




#248490 whirlpool cabrio WED6400S vs frigidaire FEQ332ES servicability reliability

Posted by Scottthewolf on 14 February 2013 - 01:44 PM

You should avoid both dryers. the only dryer I would ever buy is the one I own, a Whirlpool or Maytag dryer with the lint screen on the top with a mechanical dial you turn by hand, NOT the Cabrio.  All  gas dryers come set for natural gas from the factory. There is a kit you have to buy to convert them to propane, which should only be done by a professional appliance techncian.

Just order this because Bosch doesn't sell just the coils separately:

That looks like your problem.




#248132 Frigidiare French Door - Ice Maker Not Working

Posted by Scottthewolf on 09 February 2013 - 04:22 PM

I will only work on them if it's an out of warranty call. I refuse to work on this piece of crap for Frigidaire's warranty rate of $60.




#248063 Amana BB120te Fridge 38 degrees Freezer 24 degrees

Posted by Scottthewolf on 08 February 2013 - 04:27 PM

Both Amana and Frigidaire seem to be well known for developing leaks at the evaporator, as is Sub Zero on their older units.




#247961 Whirlpool WTW5505SQ1

Posted by Scottthewolf on 07 February 2013 - 06:01 PM

I've never had a gearcase open ever. I've always replaced complete gearcases. Not worth my time or trouble to repair a gearcase.  Time is money. The more calls I can do, the more money I can make, since we are flat rate. The same goes for restringing dryer elements, I would rather just mark up my parts more than to charge more for labor. We are appliance technicians, not part rebuilders.




#247855 Preaching to customers to fix their Whirlpool Direct Drive Top Load Washers

Posted by Scottthewolf on 06 February 2013 - 06:25 PM

I replaced a basket drive and drive block on a 3 year old Whirlpool direct drive top load washer today.  Customer originally wanted to get rid of it and buy a new washer due to the $372.00 repair quote I gave them. I convinced them it was worth the money to get it fixed because they no longer make these washers and that they won't find another top load washer as durable and dependable as this washer.  I also told them it is rare on these for the drive block to get stripped enough to ruin the basket drive.   To me it is worth saving these washers from the junkyards no matter how much money is spent repairing them.

#247744 GE F/L WASHER

Posted by Scottthewolf on 04 February 2013 - 08:23 PM

The pressure switches on these have been problematic.  I would replace it .




#247743 I'm sure this is easy for some...

Posted by Scottthewolf on 04 February 2013 - 08:21 PM

The motors on these rarely go bad, the timers seem to be failing more and more lately. We didn't seem to have these timer problems as much back when they made in the USA. I see a made in China sticker on this timer.

I've seen these 230 Volt timers without a resistor to be the problem alot of the time, causing the dryer not to start at all.  Remove the timer from the control panel and shake it. If you hear rattling inside the timer, the timer is indeed your problem.

This may not appy to your model, seeing that the serial number run is not in this range.




#247737 Jenn-Air Dish Washer Model# JDB4000AWS, leak at seal.

Posted by Scottthewolf on 04 February 2013 - 07:54 PM

In the picture, I noticed food particles on the door gasket, those food particles may just be enough to make the door leak.

Lionl56,  please take your caps lock off when you post, typing in all capital letters is the internet version of yelling.
