Hello, working with a retricted evaporator. Seems to be located where capallary tube enters or actually just a little furtherin evaporater. I've tried using nitrogen, no luck. Any thoughts or suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks Stan

evaporater restriction

05 January 2011 - 05:05 PM


I replaced compressor on this unit a few weeks back along with a new dryer. Everything seemed fined until now. The evaporater seems to have a restriction.I've replaced the dryer a second time, purge with nitrogen and evacuated again.
Still no help. I've attached a picture of evaporater. Is the restriction from capillary tube or something on down in tthe evapoarter coils?
Does the picture tell you anything? Any thoughts or suggestions on removing restriction?

Thanks Stan

maytag ice and water control panel

12 October 2006 - 11:35 AM


Came home and found water on floor in front of refrigerator. It seemed to

have came from the water dispenser. It wasn't leaking at the time I arrived

home. Now the control panel light is on and none of buttons will do nothing,

the light will not even turn off?


Is there any diagnostic checks than can be performed on the control board or

is it just dead? Any suggestions would be great!!


Thanking you in advance,


whirpool direct-drive

I thought I was pretty versed on direct-drives, but I been working on one that as

me confused? When I first hooked it up it would fill properly and then nothing would

happen except for a humming noise and a bad burning smell from motor. So I ordered a new motor, still just a humming noise. I check the transmission, it turns

freely in both directions. I also changed the start capacitor, no help, so I went ahead

and ordered a new timer, thinking it may had some contacts, still no help, still getting

just the humming noise after it fills.

I'm sure I'm overlooking the obvious, any thoughts or helpfull suggestions?


Thanking you in advance,
