In Topic: Maytag Commercial Washer F/L (MHN30PNCGW) programming

24 July 2015 - 12:18 AM

remove the lower panel, there should be a tech sheet with all of the info to program the options of your choice plus change the amount accepted to wash......It also has the diagnostic tests and trouble shooting guide......Instead of lowering the dry time, increase the amount charged.. :bunny: .....Keep a drain pump handy , they plug up fast and get cranky when they start to wear down  /out....Slow drain problems...........

When I go back and do a full diagnostic on this unit VS. a quick check of the evap panel and the air defuser / damper....( No cooling complaint)......Now I will have time  and specs. ( I hope ) for the thermistors and voltage checks at the main board ( no ice / no water at door complaint )....Taking a new main control board, P/N 241511102 with me , just in case... :thumbsup: .

This call was an add-on and I was passing this home on the way to another call..Literally......weekend rental, full of customers...most of the time of a 'Non-cooling ' complaint, we tell the customer to call back in 24 hours to see if the refer has caught up in cooling...The customers will bring a weeks worth of warm food product, stuff it into the refer  and the refer cannot cool fast enough.....99% of the time , it is overloaded for the first one to two days............Frost pattern looked O.K., could not get the drawer rails out to fully remove the evaporator panel, just enough to get my head in there to see frost more than 3/4 of the way down......

In Topic: Sub Zero 590 Fridge and Freezer Weak Cooling

I will go back and re read the original post but i did not have all night... :snore: ...The Embraco compressor P/N FF8.5BKW, that  current draw  is close to the spec....Real generic compressor, very economical, 85 Clams for this one VS. 200 clam$ for a Sub 0 spec. compressor.............Still uses the trusty Current relay to start.................The other compressor , fresh food , there should be a run cap. installed.................See one disconnected in the later pics, it will lower the current draw a wee bit..................For the freezer, low charge..leak at a tube connection...................Fresh food, low charge,   leak in the evaporator, looks original.........................Water leaking from the water line, inlet valve to the 'thru the ceiling' fitting, nylon tubing is brittle at this age....................................................P.S.  How did you get every thing so clean????......
