90-day guarantee here.

Happen to know any good repair men or companies in the St. Louis MO area?

I used Sears for this. Someone suggested looking elsewhere before hiring them again. Not sure I'm in a position to agree or disagree with that. Thanks

Well said, and agreed. Service was good, unit now functions. I'm just disappointed I was too afraid to try myself. Thanks

It was indeed the ignitor and I'm told there was a small hole in the burner I believe. I wasn't around for the fix. yes, I chickened-out and hired-out. Regretfully so though. Ignitor/burner kit was $130 and the ten minute fix added another $130. Never again. I was out the $75 for the estimate, which became part of the repair cost, so I proceeded. Regret it after seeing the part . . . you were right sohei, should've done it myself. thanks all.

I purchased the kit referenced above. took everything apart and cleaned the soap and hard water (we have hard water) buildup off of everything. It was substantial. Nothing appeared to be stripped, but I proceeded with the replacement regardless. I did indeed run a bottle of dishwasher magic after the replacement. We use them occasionally, not enough however. The dishes did seem much cleaner afterwards. I wouldn't say it cleans like it did when it was new. Might be worth noting that there seemed to be a little dirty water left in the bottom of the unit after it was run prior to replacing the motor shaft seal and chopper. after the replacement and cleaning there does not seem to be any water in the bottom. I'm guessing all the buildup was blocking proper drainage? Thanks for the help
