#308427 What time did you guys get home on Wednesday night before Thanksgiving?

Posted by NCARepair on 28 November 2014 - 10:36 PM

I got so sick of landlords calling about tenant dishwashers,phone calls about what could be wrong with the broken garage ref and how much this cost, how much that cost......I shut off the phones at noon and am closed until Monday.

#287037 Service manual GE ZISW42EMD

Posted by NCARepair on 06 March 2014 - 09:01 PM

OK here goes.  The drain pan heater is not available anymore by itself.  Ordered the drain pan kit that GE says will fit.  Not even close.  The NLA heater is used in the kit though.  The foam block under the drain pan ,heater and aluminum pan are RTV together.  Carefully cut the RTV away and remove the heater from the pan and install on the old pan.  The original pan is stainless steel and cleans up nice.  The original foam block below the pan was saturated so if you cut about 1.5 inches off the end of the new foam block, it will fit. Be careful doing this repair as you have to slide the evaporator out the front. Repair as best you can any formed foam pieces that may have been damaged by the defrost heater.  The instructions and all the many other pieces  in the kit are not used.  Other then that, a simple repair. There you have it.

#277638 40 yr old GE dual-oven electric range P7 help!

Posted by NCARepair on 15 December 2013 - 11:27 AM

If the oven is labeled P7 self clean, i would do this. Place unit in bake and temp at 350. Access the oven temp sensor wires,ithink they were yellow or white. Jump them together. If unit heats sensor is bad. Well jump the wires first then turn it on. Do you have a wiring diagram to scan and post?

Use two 1000uf caps for the repair. Those boards used a 1000 and i think a 470 at the time the article was written. They have since changed to two 1000 on later boards.

#273576 SHE6AP02UC/05 Bosch infuriating E:24 drain error

Posted by NCARepair on 07 November 2013 - 09:38 PM

Try removing fine mesh filter from sump. These being plugged will cause drain error. Bosch part 645038

One side of the heater goes through the motor switch, maybe check that.

#271537 Troubleshooting and Repairing a Warm GE Refrigerator with an Inverter Compressor

Posted by NCARepair on 19 October 2013 - 11:29 AM

Nice profitable job on GE built in. Kind of tense though when you and the customer stare at it for three minutes until it decides to start.

#267777 Bought It Somewhere Else

You are pretty charitable, Durham. You are correct though, Pduff would be married to that if he sold it to her.

#265358 Microwave HV capacitor

Posted by NCARepair on 20 August 2013 - 09:16 AM

That will work as long as it mounts in the same location.

If you do any billable work,establish a credit limit just like parts suppliers do. For example quit doing any jobs at a $1000 until they pay up. If they don't like it,too bad.

How did WCI make front load washers for 50 years that 1) did not smell, even with the doors kept closed. 2) used non HE soap 3) bearings never failed? What were the ever gracious government regulations then? Oh yeah. None!

#262560 Customer's annoying dogs

Posted by NCARepair on 26 July 2013 - 08:04 AM

I hear more people refer to them as "human" such as calling them their "kids." They won't discipline their animals just like they won't discipline their kids.
