Topics I've Started

frigidaire convection oven PLEF489CC

31 July 2013 - 02:38 PM

 HI folks, this oven will heat to around 300 degrees and stops there. Not sure how this unit reads temp but before I go I'm wondering how I can check that when I get there. (I wanna apear a little smarter than I am) Thanks, Sam

samsung dishwasher m#DMT800RHS

08 November 2012 - 07:56 PM

Hi folks, I looked at this dishwasher today. It's not taking on water - maybe a little but very little. When I pulled the cover off the look at the water valve, well, I've never seen the underside of the space shuttle but I imagine it looks just like this dishwasher.
I could see the inlet for the water valve and verified that it does have good water pressure there but after taking 2 screws loose the valve didn't seem to want to come out easily.
Any thoughts on how to troubleshoot this one, or at least how to get access to the water valve to check voltage? Thanks.

Frigidaire Range m#FES365EQA

This one is allmost too embarrassing to ask but...I suspect a circuit board problem but,but...I can't get the control panel off. When you stop laughing, when you regain control and your breathing is normal...I see a couple of screws on the bottom edge but that doesn't seem to help so...I'll shut up now and wait.

a general defrost question

30 July 2012 - 05:38 AM

I unfortunately don't have the model # for this GE side by side but I'm hoping someone can shed a little light anyway.
I first went to this call and found the evap frozen and the defrost heater burned out. I replaced the hearer, defrosted and left only to be called back a few days to find the evap frozen again. The heater and the termination thermostat both read closed so as an experiment I jumped around the thermostat, defrosted and left.
A couple of days later it was frozen again so thru a process of elimination I decided it had to be the board...which I changed...and of course it's frozen again. This parts changing idjiit is getting tired.
Does the board send the unit into defrost based on time or is there a thermister or something that tells the board when to initiate a defrost cycle? If I jump the terminals on the board (I read that here last night) am I simply supplying voltage to the defrost circuit or am I closing the defrost relay on the board? And the big question, has anyone ever seen someone change so many parts with no appearent idea of what he's dong? Thanks for the desperately needed help, Sam

whirlpool refrig m#GDSDHAXVB02

19 July 2012 - 08:39 PM

Hey folks, I have two complaints on this one. First, the ice bin above the dispensor frosts up severely once a month or so. I suspected the flapper but it seems to be opening/closing and seating fine, so there went my one idea.
The second "problem", according to the older couple who owns the refrig is that the door seals (both sides) are so tight they can barely open the doors. It does take a pretty healthy yank to get either door open - any ideas on either situation? Thanks guys, Sam
