Maytag refrigerator/freezer MFD2561HES 115 degrees

22 May 2015 - 08:24 AM

My wife smelled something hot. Open French refrigerator doors. Temp showed 115 degrees. Freezer temp was 0 degrees. Replaced evaporator fan a year ago with a heavy duty one. Closed refrigerator door. It started cooling. Working fine for two days. I ran all appropriate diagnostics. All fine. Do I have a control board going bad? Should I replace it as a precaution? Unit is 8 years old with a surge protector.

GE Washer gtwn4950l0ws not enough water

29 April 2015 - 06:28 PM

GE washer gtwn4950l0ws not enough water with auto load sensing.


I know this water is supposed to use less water and still clean properly...   (Thanks US government)  However many times I check the load in the middle of the wash cycle and the top third of the clothes are still basically dry.  This has to mean not enough water?  I understand pressure switches, however can someone explain to me how the auto load sensing switch works?  How does it know, based on the pressure sensor, how big the load should be?  Thanks

TFX25ZPBEWW GE refrigerator/freezer intermittent

10 January 2014 - 09:27 AM

I have a GE refrigerator/freezer I have lost confidence in.  It has failed three times in the last year.  It is old, but has a three year old compressor.  First, I replaced the start capacitor and it started up.  Next time, I manually rotated the defrost timer and it started up.  I replaced the defrost timer.  The last time it failed, I moved the temperature selector to off and back to on and the compressor fired right up.  About the last thing I can think of is the temperature control thermostat.  Is there any good way to test the one I currently have?  Thanks!

GE GTWN4950L0WS washer - chattering noise under tub

05 May 2013 - 07:24 PM

I have a GE GTWN4950L0WS washing machine making a chattering noise under the tub.  It fills, spins and drains fine.  I guess some ears or cogs not cooperating in the transmission?  Anyway, I'm stuck in removing the 1 11/16 nut (which has loosen and a clockwise arrow on it). Attached File  GE GTWN4950L0WS.jpg   86.34KB   12 downloads   I chewed it up a little with a pipe wrench.  Shouldn't this be easy??? I have an 1 11/16 deep-well socket on it now, but I can not break it free???  Am I being an idiot? Am I missing something or just a weakling?  I assume I need a new clutch ( Clutch WH38X10017, shaft and mode shifter assembly)  Any help would be appreciated.  Thanks!

1999 GE side-by-side TFX25ZPBE WW start capacitor question

20 April 2013 - 07:01 PM

Start capacitor failed on this GE refrigerator/freezer TFX25ZPBE WW  I needed to get it running and the local parts house did not have the factory part in-stock.  I installed a Supco start/overload capacitor.  Runs great.  Would you trust this $5 capacitor vs the $38 factory part (http://www.repaircli...ber=TFX25ZPBEWW)?  The compressor had previously been replaced with a DD86C16GBU6 Matsushita unit.  Thanks.
