#303359 iPad tool .............MD510LLA

Posted by Samurai Appliance Repair Man on Today, 05:05 PM

I'm going with the regular iPhone 6 because I already carry an iPad mini Retina for document storage and study so I don't need the plus size phone.  And putting a tablet up to your head to make a phone call is just so wrong on so many levels.  




#303254 Samsung Side by Side RSG257AARS/XAA Fridge and Freezer not cooling

Posted by Samurai Appliance Repair Man on 13 September 2014 - 05:46 PM

We need to rule out an encore sealed system problem.  Remove the back wall inside the freezer and get some eyeballs on the evaporator coil.  Take a photo and post it here.  Compare with...

#303128 Jenn Air gas range JGS8850BDS re-ignition burner problem

Posted by Samurai Appliance Repair Man on 11 September 2014 - 10:07 PM

Excessive sparking is usually a grounding problem with the spark circuit.  The most common culprit is carbon and gookus buildup under the burners, interrupting good grounding with the oven chassis.  Remove the burner base and clean both it and the cooktop surface it rests on with a wire brush and / or scotch brite pad.

#302940 GE fridge ZIR36NMHLH humidity

Posted by Samurai Appliance Repair Man on 09 September 2014 - 10:41 AM

Has to be an air leak.  Check gaskets, door closing, condensate drain-- all the usual things when tracking down an air leak.




#302939 Samsung DV219AEW/XAA not heating

Posted by Samurai Appliance Repair Man on 09 September 2014 - 10:40 AM

Look at the schematic on the Fast Track manual and do a load analysis on the heater while asking yourself: How does the heater get L1 and L2? Answer this question and you'll solve the problem.

#302773 Whirlpool elec dryer runs on low heat only

Posted by Samurai Appliance Repair Man on 07 September 2014 - 08:40 PM

Amen and Amen! Preach it, Brother Durham!

I was galled, liked dried refuse on a toilet bowl, when I read the ignorant impertanance in DrewT's reply to Brother Fairbanks' most benificent and sage reply, loaded with practical insight.

Brother Fairbank's reply was his signature gracious, knowledgable, and factual style to a neophyte in the craft or a DIYer.

DrewT, if you took any insult from Brother Fairbanks' thoughtful reply, then the problem lies with your own twisted ego, always looking for an insult, rather than in anything Brother Fairbanks said or implied.

The proper reply to Brother Fairbanks then would have been to say, "Thank you, Master, for taking the time to help me."

The proper reply now would be to say, "Forgive me, Master, for I knoweth not what I say."


#302588 Dacor ERDE36 dual fuel range control board replacement

Posted by Samurai Appliance Repair Man on 04 September 2014 - 06:03 PM

I love these units because they're so easy to work on and it pays well.  Remove the grates and burner caps.  Unscrew the brass burner rings-- it helps to push down on the top panel a little as you do this because it removes the tension off the rings and they turn easier.  As you lift out each burner base, disconnect the wire to the electrode.  Keep everything in order on a separate surface.  With the burner bases removed and the wires disconnected, you can remove the entire top panel.  The ERC is right there in front and the relay board is below another compartment, couple of screws to remove the cover and access it.  Make sure you don't get the spark wires mixed up or you'll have a continuous sparking problem when you re-apply power.  




#302572 Kenmore 596.76573600 ice maker stops producing ice

Posted by Samurai Appliance Repair Man on 04 September 2014 - 03:32 PM

There's a reason these are called "modular ice makers." Don't screw around with the pieces in this ice maker. Just replace the entire ice maker and enjoy your new ice maker. Part number: D7824706Q

Part number: D7824706Q




#302555 Kenmore HE3t washer 110.42926200 electric shock

Posted by Samurai Appliance Repair Man on 04 September 2014 - 08:46 AM

Bad MCU Part number: 8182706

Part number: 8182706

 

The shock was probably from an internal fault in the MCU sending the CW voltage to the chassis instead of to the motor.  




#302548 Whirlpool gx5shdxvq02 JAZZ Board part change

Posted by Samurai Appliance Repair Man on 04 September 2014 - 08:22 AM

I used my last 12784415 a several weeks ago.  Still running fine.  The change in the boards may have been something as trivial as changing the supplier without any real functional change.
