For what it's worth after unplugging and reconnecting all the cables and wires the code has not returned.

#311397 samsung dryer , Cooling light blinks and no heat. DV5451AGW/XAA 03

Posted by bimbbobway on 17 January 2015 - 09:19 PM

Yes In service mode the relay did not close. the thermistor was at 1300 . I replaced the relay board it worked just as designed. I was a bit concerned because the cooling light was flashing when it was supposed to be heating. I'm guessing the display interface board knows when the relay is not closing and it shows that it's cooling. I don't have enough information to confirm this other then what I observed.

#286157 GE Microwave, stops for no reason,

I don't know, but one of my Techs suggested we check using an RF leak detector and we found higher then normal RF levels inside of the cabinet. We changed the mag and the levels returned to normal.

Eureka!  We figured it out, the magnatron was emitting radiation in to the cabinet and causing RF interface with the control board.   We replaced it and all is working good.

#261867 How do you find freon leaks?

Posted by bimbbobway on 22 July 2013 - 07:32 AM

I have tried many different methods over the last 15 years. As my business gets bigger and new people come on board the one thing that plagues us is freon leaks. I'm looking for feedback from every one to see how do you find the leak in a sealed system?

#256164 Kitchen aid Dishwahser guru needed, stops in mid cycle and blinks KUDT03FTSS0

Posted by bimbbobway on 28 May 2013 - 05:47 PM

I installed the new door latch. The dishwasher still mysteriously stops. When it stops all the lights go out for about three minutes. Then the lights come back on and the " start resume " lite blinks. I made myself comfortable and acquired a cup of Joe. It's too early in the morning for beer. I held my hand lightly on the dishwasher door latch and ran it through an entire cycle. Finally it stopped again for no reason, I was not able to notice any abnormalities with the door latch. So I started suspecting something was causing it to lose power. I replaced the wire nuts on the main power supply, replace the thermal fuse on the control board. And check all other connectors and various wiring. I ran it through another cycle and it completed with no issues. I ran it again and left the house the customer called me back and said it completed the cycle just fine. Time will tell if it's truly fixed thanks for the help.

#249860 Dishonorable GE washer, customers says it shuts it self off mod# WPGT9360E0PL

Posted by bimbbobway on 11 March 2013 - 08:42 PM

I cleaned 6 years of infested-yak from the dryer and vent. I had a hunch that the reduced airflow was causing the dryer to run long and possible messing up the communication with the washer. The home owner said she had no trouble with the washer last week. I tested the stator and the ohm reading was 8ohm. I will be back at her house next week. If she has had more trouble I will check the noise filter and such. I got a hunch it's fixed but only time will tell. It's hard to know for certain as she has a housekeeper do the laundry and the info from the homeowner is second hand.
