#305948 Kitchenaid KEBS247DWH inner glass replacement

Posted by vee8power on 19 October 2014 - 07:00 AM

To remove the door, first put the screws back to hold the door together. When you open the door you can see a hole in each hinge near the pivot point. Push small screws or something into these holes to keep the hinges from closing. Then start closing the door; when you feel resistance, keep pushing gently on the door. Grasp the door on both sides and lift while pushing. Leave the screws in place until you re-install the door; then open the door fully and remove the screws. There must be a video somewhere.

Screws along the top edge of door. Also the ones holding the u shaped brackets to the bottom need to come out.

Posted by vee8power on 18 October 2014 - 06:27 PM

Check the door switch continuity first. The primary and secondary ones should be closed/open when the door is closed/open, The monitoring interlock switch is open/closed opposite the door. Here's a good illustration:

#305920 GE Profile Dishwasher PDW7880G00SS just doesn't clean anymore

Posted by vee8power on 18 October 2014 - 06:10 PM

Is the dispenser lid still locked when the cycle is done? Or is it open but the detergent not dissolved? If it is still locked shut when the cycle is over, the dispenser is the most likely culprit. Testing it is a bit dicey for the inexperienced.

There is a wax motor in the dispenser that pushes out when 120 volts AC is applied to it. You'll see the orange part in the second picture here on this link where you can buy the part and return it if it doesn't solve your problem.

#305530 Frigidaire Freezer FFU21M7HWN Making Loud noise

No luck with that model number or the video but I'm thinking air being forced through the defrost drain.

#305376 Samsung RF267ABRS - Water flowing from dispenser without pressing the lever

If the water runs without it plugged in, you need a water valve:

Part# 528437 is the whole link kit. Looks just like the Kitchenaid part.


#304040 Maytag LSE7806ACE dryer works, washer wont do squat

Posted by vee8power on 24 September 2014 - 08:13 AM

Let's review the symptoms; it fills but won't agitate, spin, or drain; it just sits there dead, correct? Can you hear the washer timer motor running when the lid is closed, the knob is pulled out, and it should be agitating? How about drain/spin?

The lid switch assembly is a pretty common repair on these. If you want to try it, you can send it back if it doesn't work and all you'll be out is shipping.

Are you sure your guy was saying lid switch? It could be the motor switch, requiring replacement of the washer drive motor. Then his quote would be more in line.

#303772 DCS range - RGS-485GDSS

Posted by vee8power on 20 September 2014 - 06:46 PM

The range should be plugged into a grounded outlet with proper polarity that is not on on a GFI circuit.  

#303465 Whirlpool Refrig ED2FHAXST03 Defrost System ADC question

Posted by vee8power on 16 September 2014 - 07:03 PM

I think most Whirlpools go into defrost if you turn off the fridge, unplug it, then plug it back in. Maybe that's why it went in defrost?

Yeah, you gotta plug it in with the cold control on.

#303055 Jenn Air gas range JGS8850BDS re-ignition burner problem

Posted by vee8power on 11 September 2014 - 06:47 AM

According to the customer, they've been dealing with this problem off and on for months now. If moisture did get to one or more of the switches, it would probably have dried out by now, right? I'm curious how these things work, exactly. How does the spark module know to stop sparking?

This service manual has some good information on the subject; there are others too in the download section.



#302779 whirlpool lsq8500JQq2 washer fills but wont agitate or spin

Posted by vee8power on 08 September 2014 - 06:32 AM

I think you fat-fingered the "Q" You mean LSQ8500JQ2 ? Check the capacitor on the back panel; also check the wires going to it.

#302653 Whirlpool Slide In Range GY399LXUB03

Posted by vee8power on 05 September 2014 - 07:32 PM

"The temp displayed is the temp in the oven." Makes me wonder how you're measuring too. Using the proper technique and an accurate measuring tool, you may get an average of 350 when the set point is 350 but the temperature is exactly 350 at only two points in each cycle. It will heat to above 350 and then shut off until below 350, hopefully above and below by the same amount.

That rant about precision being said, you will probably find in the user manual that convection temperature is offset by -25 degrees.
