#291201 ge dishwasher GDF510PGD0WW

Posted by Samurai Appliance Repair Man on Yesterday, 07:26 AM

This is the new Mission One dishwasher. First one I worked on was a trip! Had to change the control board. Sounds simple, right? Ahh, welcome to the world of GE where the engineers work hard to imagine appliances that give techs nightmares. The whole door has to come off, then the entire door has to be split apart. I had parts strewn all over the kitchen floor. It was a two hour job. The really amazing thing was that it actually worked again when I put it all back together!

Thanks for the info. The local appliance parts store had them both in stock so I went ahead and replaced them both.

 

 

This is an example of why the future of of Appliantology is not with DIYers:  Come get technical help here and then purchase parts "locally."  As if you can get more local than on your computer screen-- the Internet has changed the definition of "local."  

 

The future of Appliantology is in serving the professional technician community.  The day swiftly approaches when Appliantology will be closed to DIYers and only Brethren in The Craft will be able to partake.  Maranatha!




#291062 Now, Secure Logins at Appliantology!

Posted by Samurai Appliance Repair Man on 17 April 2014 - 02:33 PM

Appliantology.org stands alone and once again leads the pack as the ONLY appliance repair forum on the internet that has secure logins.  You watch:  all the other copy cats will start copying Appliantology just like they always have.  Once again, Appliantology sets the trend!

 

In light of the recent heartbleed virus and all the security hubbub, Appliantology.org now has secure log ins.  The log-in page is now done via https instead of http so the password you enter is encrypted and can't be snooped by anyone (except the NSA).  

 

Internet security is back in the limelight after the heartbleed virus outbreak.  They're saying even log in pages to sites like this one should be secure because the passwords people use here are probably used at lots of different sites.  

 

BTW, you should change your passwords for all sites that were affected by the heartbleed virus that has plagued sites using the OpenSSL certificates for secure (https) log in pages.  Fun facts to know and tell:  Gmail was one of them; Amazon was not.  

 

You can check on the vulnerability of other sites to this virus here




#291003 Possible to lube noisy circulation pump on Frigidaire dishwasher FGHD2433KF1

Posted by Samurai Appliance Repair Man on 16 April 2014 - 09:57 PM

No, more than likely either the bearings are shot or the plastic collar on the pump housing is split.  You'll just need to replace the washer motor Part number: AP5272381

#290878 Kitchenaid Dishwasher kuds24sewh2 wont run

Posted by Samurai Appliance Repair Man on 15 April 2014 - 02:33 PM

Split-phase, dual start winding motor for both CW and CCW rotation (wash and drain).  Wash impeller may be jammed.  Could disassembly the sump down to the wash impeller and see if it spins freely.  If it does, then your next step is to check for 120 V AC from P10 to P4 at the control board when the motor is supposed to run.  If you're not getting voltage there, the control board is bad.

The timer?  Good to know that fixed it but I'm having trouble seeing how.  




#290682 Bosch Dishwasher SHV46C03 won't run

Posted by Samurai Appliance Repair Man on 12 April 2014 - 03:49 PM

That is a water heating system fault:  bad control board (not sending 120 VAC to the heater via the red wire), bad heater assembly (open), bad NTC (open).  Most common of these by far is the control board Part number: AP3194844

Part number: AP3194844

 

But you should do the confirming tests in the manual to be sure.

Mine, too.  I'm thinking instead they'll just get a warning point.  They'll have to acknowledge the warning point before they can post again.  If they still do not provide a model number in their next post, Then I'll delete the topic.

Are you using the manual diagnostic test or the automatic diagnostic cycle?  

 

Does water actually enter the drum during the test?




#290249 Amana ARG7102c oven stopped turning on.

Posted by Samurai Appliance Repair Man on 08 April 2014 - 10:00 AM

Begin by understanding how these ignition systems work:  http://fixitnow.com/...rface-ignition/

 

Then apply what you've learned to verify that the igniter is getting voltage and then measure the current flow through the ignitor.  Part number: AP4041245

Part number: AP4041245

 

If all these electrical measurements are new to you, you may want to enroll in the Samurai Appliance Tech Boot Camp.  The Beta class starts this Sunday.  If you're interested in being part of the Beta class, get your application in today and we'll talk about getting you enrolled.  




#290007 refrigerator GI5SVAXVL00 Ice maker works, ice and water dispensers do not

Posted by Samurai Appliance Repair Man on 05 April 2014 - 04:50 PM

You can't tell if it's bad by inspection.  The membrane is sandwiched in the overlay.  IF it's bad (and I stress IF) then you can only tell by using your meter.  One method is to check for open/close change when switch is actuated (pressed).  But since they don't give a pinout matrix for this overlay, you can't do this easily.  A better test would be a live test where you check for a DC voltage change at J1-4 wrt DC GND (J1-1).  From the tech sheet, it looks like +12 VDC is standing at J1-4 all the time (sent from muthaboard) and the switch signals it wants water by grounding out that +12 VDC signal. So you would look for the +12 VDC at J1-4 to go away when  you press the dispenser button.  

 

Maybe not, but that's the way it looks to me.  Let's just say, that's how I would troubleshoot it if I was on the call.




#289999 refrigerator GI5SVAXVL00 Ice maker works, ice and water dispensers do not

Posted by Samurai Appliance Repair Man on 05 April 2014 - 04:16 PM

Model number in topic title edited.

 

In test mode, the main board is controlling the dispenser directly.  Out of test mode, the dispenser board must talk to the main board to do dispensary things like dispense ice or water.  The fact that the dispenser function works in test mode means that: 1) the muthaboard and involved peripherals (water inlet valve in this case) are good.  The fact that is does not dispense in customer mode and that you've replaced the dispenser board already means that the overlay membrane switch is bad, probably a worn-through dispenser button.
