Whirlpool gi7fvcxw Freezing fresh food, ice maker not working

08 April 2013 - 04:11 PM

Don't think this is built by whirlpool, first one Ive seen, could use service manual if available not sure of airflow , looks like it flows from freezer thru ice maker
And not sure how to access ice maker without breaking something. Freezer is fine.any help greatly appreciated, noticed its no longer being offered by whirlpool. Fancy that!

hotpoint SxS model hss25gftaww control goes blank when dispensing ic

29 August 2012 - 02:43 PM

Original problem was not defrosting, T-stat and heater good, no separate control on this model, so replaced main board. Then customer informed me ice wouldnt dispense. You can hear click from motherboard, but control goes blank, nothing happens. I no longer hear click, and is not defrosting again. Can control board kill the motherboard? Auger is not froze up, can turn maually. Water does dispense, just not crushed or cubed ice, and both blank out control (lights fade to blank). I assume will need new mother board, but don't want to kill it again. Any help appreciated. JR

Viking convection oven w/ electronic spark no bake or broil

04 July 2012 - 06:48 PM

I see very few vikings and this is the first with the electronic spark ignitors-neither function so oven is dead. Need link to service manual or advice on what to check. Is located in residence at remote ski resort, so they don't have many options on who will come out to look at it, so I will try. I thin k I need advice ande service manual. I noticed in a nother link some mention of certain models not functioning if fan doesn't work. A possibility? Any help appreciated. Thanks. JR

reset code for Whirlpool Dishwasher Model number DU1010xtxbo

09 March 2012 - 03:10 AM

I posted this in Nov 2011, and RegUS posted a link but my customer went on extended vacation. Is back now but link doesn't work. The other two codes used on whirlpools don't work because this one uses one button for three settings-lights move each time you touch it. Tech sheet is gone so I can't get it to reset. Any help would be appreciated. I will print it out next time, thought the link would stay good till I needed it. Thanks, Your humble goof up, JR.

whirlpool dishwasher-dead except blinking led over start button. Model number DU1010xtxbo

11 November 2011 - 07:23 PM

Checked door switches and thermal fuse in control panel-all check good. No tech sheet available so can't run through diagnostic cycle. tech sheet or link to service manual would help, along with any advice on similar problems you have had. . Model number DU1010xtxbo. Thanks.
