#230855 Electric oven arcing

Posted by Dan Webster on 24 April 2012 - 10:20 AM

L-2 is live from source to element on most ranges. If the element is shorted to cabinet you could get some arcing.



#228950 Whirlpool Dryer GEW9868KQ2 - No Heat

Posted by Dan Webster on 03 April 2012 - 10:05 AM

While you were cleaning the dryer did you do a thorough vacuuming? Sometimes that lint gets into the heater element area and that causes the element to fail. If the element looks brittle it may have simply been time. Nothing last forever. Last halloween I repaired a dryer similar to yours and took a few photos:

2 wire hard start or 3 wire?


#225757 Snyder SnyderGeneral (ArcoAire), GDE090A012AIN furnace, ignition annoyance

Have you tried cleaning the orifices of those 2 burners with a soft toothbrush? They may be partially clogged.


#220511 Rheem gas furnace burners will not ignite

Posted by Dan Webster on 13 January 2012 - 01:00 PM

Hopefully he ran some more wire from tstat to furnace or installed a new tstat. Wouldn't want him to freeze to death.


#220502 Rheem gas furnace burners will not ignite

Posted by Dan Webster on 13 January 2012 - 12:14 PM

I see the limit above the gas valve to the left. You need to check that limit. If it is open you will have no heat. That limit would pop out due to rusted burners or partially blocked vent. As you can see in the photo the black wire on the gas valve goes to that limit then to the fan/limit then over to the transformer. So the pilot can be lit and working but no 24 volts can get to the valve if that limit is tripped.


#219808 Converting a valve DSK-65-LP

Posted by Dan Webster on 07 January 2012 - 11:19 AM

Well post some pictures of the conversion so that future folks can see them.


#219606 Converting a valve DSK-65-LP

Posted by Dan Webster on 05 January 2012 - 09:06 PM

You cannot convert that valve based on what I see that thing is factory set and not servicable in the field...I may be wrong...been wrong before. I have a truck full of essex valves by the way.


#219333 Converting a valve DSK-65-LP

Posted by Dan Webster on 04 January 2012 - 12:33 AM

That big flat blade screw has a push pin under it. Remove the LP pin out of your old one and put it in that 3.5 valve if you have LP gas. If you have then nat gas then use it like it is.


#219141 Help with Flame Rectification specs on Coleman/Evcon DLAS056BDC furnace

Posted by Dan Webster on 02 January 2012 - 12:45 PM

My friend a tv repairman that works at the wings of life as a volunteer told me he removed the cover on these modules and has had quite a bit of sucess in soldering a loose connection on the pilot flame sensor ground terminal. The solder connection comes loose. Remove that cover on this puppy and look for a loose solder connection:

#218454 fan does not always work in heat mode

Posted by Dan Webster on 25 December 2011 - 02:43 PM

They use that thing to brang the heat on in stages to prevent tripping the breaker. You want the fan to come on after the elements come on. Not very familiar with these new fangled furnaces with electronics. A simple sequencer could work that furnace without them electronics. I know guys that just yank all that out and a mount a sequencer.


#218418 fan does not always work in heat mode

Posted by Dan Webster on 24 December 2011 - 06:07 PM

That black component in photo 165 is the fan relay. Single stack sequencer. Starts the fan on a delay so that the vents will be warm when the fan comes on.


#218063 AMANA GUID090EA50

Posted by Dan Webster on 20 December 2011 - 03:33 PM

Continuous flashing on the LED might mean your furnace has a reversed polarity of 115 volts. Turn off the power and correct the wiring polarity after reviewing the wiring diagram


#217655 REMOVING THE AIR BELL COUPLING FROM THE AGITATOR SHAFT OF COUPLING - GE WBXR2...

Posted by Dan Webster on 16 December 2011 - 11:23 AM

Most of the time the drive bell is wallowed out and slips right off. The hardest part is getting the bolt out. The bell comes with a new bolt. You must have a worse problem that a drive block. I bet the previous owner put some gorilla glue on the drive block because it was slipping. LOL
