Kitchenaid Dishwasher Fire Hazard?

21 November 2012 - 10:26 PM

My Kitchenaid dishwasher model # KUDP01FLSS6 recently stopped working. Prior to this when the dishwasher was in the drying cycle I detected a burning smell. In the past a burning smell was the result of a plastic measureing spoon or tupperware lid falling down and touching the heating element causing it to melt. This time I didn't see any plastic on the heating element.

When the dishwasher stopped working I took apart the door to access the electronics module. I discovered that there was a hole burned thru the circuit board where the tan wire (Line) connection P8 occurs. I thought that the heater element assembly was drawing too much current, however the heating element measured within spec (13.7 ohms) and I tested the thermostat which opened when heated up and closed when cooled down.

Since the tan wire comes from the door switch and there was no sign of the switch taking in too much current, I suspected that the spade connector to P8 was bad causing arching that resulted in a hole in the circuit board.

After replacing the circuit board and splicing in a new spade connector for the P8 connection, my dishwasher is back in business.

Are there any notices/recalls for my Kitchenaid dishwasher?

Suburban #HF50B Circuit Board

04 March 2012 - 09:04 PM

My sister has a Suburban furnace and the fan motor kept running with no heat. She was told that there were no replacement parts available for the furnace and the only option was to replace the entire unit with a more conventional style furnace. This would require re-work of the duct work and She was quoted $7000.

I got the circuit board and there are some burnt traces on the edge connectors. I can try to repair the edge connectors but I feel that what ever caused them to burn in the first place is still the problem.

The circuit board has HEC Carborundum 114-500-3022 silk screened on the board.

Any info would be appreciated.

Kitchenaid Dishwasher Chopper Delete?

22 December 2011 - 11:26 PM

I have a Kitchenaid KUDP01FLSS6 dishwasher that twice a year I have to clean the crud (mainly seeds) from the chopper screen due to the dishwasher not cleaning the dishes properly. Once the chopper assembly is cleaned the dishwasher works great.

My question is can I remove the screen from the chopper assembly since the dishwasher is piped to my sink disposal? I see no advantage to chop the food up to run thru the sink disposal and by not having the chopper screen from getting clogged the dishwasher will keep the dishes cleaner longer.

My concern with removing the screen is that the motor impeller or discharge hose may plug up due to the larger crud being passed.

Any thoughts?

Jennair frozen vegetables

04 December 2010 - 02:06 PM

I have a Jennair side by side fridge JSD2789GES. The fridge maintains between 30 to 40 deg temp at the top of the fridge, I need to put a thermometer in the freezer to check the temp in there. The vegetables and food on the lower left shelf get frozen. The wife is nagging me to fix this but it wasn't my priory since the beer fridge in the basement is working fine. I'm thinking there is something wrong with the airflow, could it be the damper? Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Viking Range VGSC3664GSS

15 March 2009 - 01:18 PM

I have a Viking range #VGSC3664GSS which I need a top burner valve and burner knob.  Old burner valve seized-up.

I had an old printout from Repair Clinic (#951542 & #810722) for the burner and knob but they show up as "No longer available - This part has been permanently discontinued by the manufacturer and we don't know of any source for the part".

Any chance someone can point me to another source for the parts?  Don't need the Viking name on it.

Many Thanks.
