#313181 why is this fridge control board so cheap?

Posted by Econo Appliance on 11 February 2015 - 05:53 PM

Well I waited two weeks..... called Sears to find out that the board is NLA.... I gave them a piece of my mind!!!   Sears lies about all of their stock... they say everything is "in stock" with hopes of making the sale....   This screws with my customners,  when I tell them that a part is NLA,  customer goes on google and sees that Sears supposedly has everything in stock and ready to ship.


The customner service lady said that they can't determine the true stock status until they "check the shelves."  


Even after my antics today,  Sears still claims that this board is in stock and ready to ship.  Don't trust them.

#293857 Electrolux DW Md# EDW5505EPS touch pad

I don't have an explanation, but I can tell you this is "normal" of GE/Frigidaire.   You never know what to expect in terms of pricing.


The original part # was 5304452068,  has been substituted to 5304470638.   Maybe one will pop up on ebay eventually but I wouldn't hold my breath.


If it were my dishwasher,  i'd buy a $500 Bosch (much better dishwasher than ANYTHING Frigidaire sells) and call it a day.

#290087 Kenmore model 143.6806800 Oven Control

Posted by Econo Appliance on 06 April 2014 - 05:15 PM

I've never seen a 143 Kenmore - made by "Monarch / Simpson" . Must be a nice one.


Kenmore never made thermostats, so chances are it is a robert shaw or harper wyman. Are there any numbers on the thermostat itself?

#236064 Keep My Heineken Cold - Zub-Zero MDL #642 Warm Fridge

Posted by Econo Appliance on 12 July 2012 - 04:21 PM

RegUS PatOff is on the right track. Sub-Zero's are notorious for leaking evaporators on the refrigerator side (almost NEVER in the freezer though). The evaporators are made of aluminum. In the freezer, the temp is so cold that the various salts and whatnot from your food don't corrode the aluminum. In the refrigerator, the temp is 30 degrees warmer than your freezer, this is just enough to where the chemicals and salts from your food can slowly corrode the evaporator, eventually causing it to leak (usually 10-15 years after purchase).

This never happens in other brands of refrigerators because practically no other manufacturer puts a separate sealed system and a separate evaporator on the fresh food side. This is unique to Sub-Zero refrigerators (with a few oddball exceptions).

Post a picture of your refrigerator side evaporator and we'll try to confirm whether this is your problem or not, but i'm putting my money on the evaporator.
