Topics I've Started

Maytag LDG9800 Dryer - intermittant heat

31 October 2014 - 07:46 PM

Housekeepers here yesterday, dryer got a workout.  On last load of towels, the dryer kept blinking out and running cold.


Open door, restart and it lights, after a while goes cold again.


I replaced the igniter a couple of years ago.  Glowing nice red hot drawing about 4.2 amps.


Solenoid with 2 terms (marked 4, 5 on most diagrams) showing 1232 ohms with a spec of 1220 +/-50


Solenoid with 3 terms showing

1-2 @1355 ohms with a spec of 1365+/-25

1-3 at 560 ohms with a spec of 560 +/-25


Very short alum. flex duct all clear; no lint, and duct clear inside dryer.


Perhaps the flame sensor? 


If it starts acting up again I'll sit with it and see if I can hear the solenoids kick in when it gets cold.


I am otherwise at a loss.








lg lfx23961sw fridge cool spot

05 December 2012 - 08:01 PM

This ~18 cu. ft. bottom freezer, French Door fridge has been a serious PITA ever since I bought it.  Sure glad I got the extended warranty.


Yesterday I noticed that the left side of the fridge, OUTSIDE, half way down and about 1/3 from back to front, was cold. 


  • Cold enough that when I reached over for the coffee filter, I felt the cold before I even touched anything. 
  • So cold that water was dripping down onto the floor. 
  • This can't be good for my electrical bills.


All the doors are properly sealed (but this is noplace near the door.)  The "cold spot" is approximately a square foot in area.


I have a service call in on this, but I hate to waste their money if this is standard.  If it is standard, I have to wonder why I never noticed this before, as I have had the thing out from the wall a dozen or more times.


Any hints?
