In Topic: Sub Zero 600 series

03 March 2014 - 11:50 PM

By the way, I have seen the problem with the 680 manual saying that is only starts after a certain serial number. This is actually listed this way on their website, too.


With SubZero, you should always plug your part number into the distributor website and check for serial breaks. Often times there are several serial breaks that will point you to different part numbers for your particular unit. This solves the issue with the 680 manual. Look up your part, plug it in to the website, check the serial breaks and it should list your particular range. They can make minor changes several times throughout the different iterations of the same model number. Twicksters can be twicky that way.

In Topic: Kenmore Dishwasher Impeller? 665.13752k601 - Is it worth DIY?

I agree with MA tech on diagnosis procedure. This is not too difficult to replace and is well worth it, imho. I like this design much better than many of the newer ones. 


Its a long shot, but you could try running some Lemishine Dishwasher Cleaner through it in the odd chance that it may break some deposits loose for you.

In Topic: Jenn Air fridge start relay

I have composed a modest haiku to help remember the compressor electricals song:


Cap leads three and two

Orange to 1, needs quarter inch

Blue to overload.



(Poetic license making orange one syllable.)

In Topic: Old SubZero 561 - freezer works, 'fresh' compartment warm

18 January 2014 - 12:20 AM

There is good advice here. If neither the evaporator fan motor runs nor the compressor, then you likely have an open cold control. You can verify this by checking for voltage coming in and voltage coming out of the control. A good control should pass voltage on any setting at room temperature, although you may give it a few minutes to close.


You will have to remove the back wall of the refrigerator to access the control. Be very careful not to break the capillary tubes when removing. 

In Topic: LG Steam Dryer mystery leak - DLEX7177RM

", (I don't believe the wrong detergent used in the washer will cause a dryer to leak?)."

It would not surprise me to find a customer putting detergent in a dryer! They do everything else!

Thanks for the guidance.
