Bosh Dishwasher - SHU6805UC/U12 - bottom rack not cleaning

19 January 2015 - 11:03 PM

Items placed on bottom rack are not cleaning.  Opening the door during cycles leads me to believe that the bottom wash bar isn't spinning. 


Is it stuck in "top rack" mode?


Suggestions on how to debug/repair?


I have desoldered the control board a few times for the heater relay problem, so know how to get to that.  Never had the dishwasher out of the cabinet (yet).



stuck ignitor - Thermador PRDS366U range

Is there a trick to removing a stuck ignitor from the ignitor base on a thermador 6 burner stove?

Subzero 642 - squeaky door

What is the recommended solution for a squeaky fridge side door on a subzero? I don't want to spray something on it that will degrade the plastic bushing or make it worse.


kitchenaid side by side KSCS25FKSS01

03 August 2011 - 10:17 PM

My Kitchenaid fridge is having problems with the ice maker. It is making ice properly, but doesn't dispense it properly.

Symptoms -
- Push ice switch on door.
- Solenoid clicks/humms and ice door opens if on crushed.
- Auger does not turn.
- If on cube, solenoid does not hum, ice door does not open, and auger still doesn't turn.

We replaced the auger motor but no improvement.

Is there a wiring diagram for this model available somewhere? I would like to understand if the same wire that runs the solenoid should also engage the auger motor? Are there multiple wires? Or is the auger controlled with a relay?

Also, as a side question, is there a second switch that tells the fridge if the freezer door is open? I noticed that if the door is open the solenoid doesn't engage. If I push the obvious door switch it still does not engage. Then if I close the door (while holding the switch) as the door nears closed position the solenoid will start. Is there a second switch somewhere? Does the light go off when I push the switch and then come back on when the door is fully closed? :)

Thermador Stove Left burners not working after boil over

27 March 2011 - 06:06 PM

First - where do I find the model number on a Thermador oven? It is a 6 burner model.

If possible to help without the model number.... The left two burners (with the simmer function) no longer work after a major boil-over. The lighters do not spark and the gas doesn't flow out of those burners. I think since they are simmer burners, the gas is controlled electronically?

The 4 right burners work and the lighters spark properly.

Looking for a manual, how to take it apart, and what to look for...
