Kenmore 110.44832 200 Front Load Washer Needs shocks?

06 July 2014 - 08:57 PM

I'm wondering when these washers might need shock replacements.  Do these shocks wear out, like car shocks, leading to increased vibration? or should I just let them go until they fail?  I figure that keeping them current would be a way to reduce vibration and wear and tear on the rest of the unit as long as they're not too pricey to replace.







kenmore 153.32053 Electric Heater not enough hot water

08 January 2013 - 08:06 PM

We have had a Kenmore electric hot water heater for about 8 yrs.  I have replaced both thermostats, but not done anything with the coils.  This afternoon my called to tell me that both kids ran out of their showers complaining of no not water (They're 5 and 7 so not taking the typical teenage showers yet,


It's a 50 gal heater, and we usually give them both baths, so I don't know that water volume should be an issue.  


When I came home and checked the hot water this evening, It was fine.  I was thinking that it needed thermostats again, but now that the water is hot again, I'm wondering.  


Is there any realistic cause of temporary hot water shortage? single coil going bad?


I checked the breaker reset button on the upper thermostat and it did not click when I pressed it, nor I hear any obvious churning that usually accompanies coils jumping to life, though there is hot water in the tank. 



GE ZFSB26ORD loud circulation fan in freezer

04 January 2013 - 10:08 PM

The circulation fan in our GE side by side freezer is loud...sort of.  It appears to be hitting the cover from time to time, though not consistently.  Is there any way to adjust the cover to eliminate the noise?  Is the occasional sound a sign that the cooling fan is going (drive shaft is slipping) and that the fan needs to be replaced?  is there any room to adjust the mounting for that fan?


How messy is it to get out?



Sanyo BC-1206 Bad kegerator FROZE MY BEER

31 October 2012 - 09:04 PM

It appears that the thermostat on my Sanyo BC-1206 beer cooler has a bad thermostat. Despite turning down the temperature settings, it froze my keg of Hofbrau Oktoberfest.

Anyone have a sense for how to get at the thermostat in these units?



Sanyo Kegerator BC 1206 NEEDS THERMOSTAT

11 September 2011 - 08:24 AM

The thermostat on my Sanyo Kegerator model BC 1206 appears to be sticking. No matter how low I turn down the temp setting, a glass of water in the fridge keeps freezing.

I have a keg of Spaten Oktoberfest in there. I don't want to turn it into a block of ice.

Can anyone help me get to the thermostat? identify the replacement part #

I'll go to the Sanyo site, but usually get GREAT results here
