Fisherking, you have no idea how lucky you are!


#308573 SUMMIT REFRIGERATOR (FF1325SS)

Posted by Samurai Appliance Repair Man on 30 November 2014 - 08:20 PM

Hi Walter, I've worked on a few Summit appliances before but not their refrigerators. Summit manuals are not in wide circulation and there's not a lot of their stuff out there relative to the other brands. But, in my experience, Summit has been pretty good about emailing me manuals when I've needed them. Their tech support is semi-competent but willing to help and will talk to you if you identify yourself as a professional servicer. Their contact info is here: http://www.summitappliance.com/contact

BTW, if they call on you for warranty work, they pay well and quickly, and you don't need to sign a contract with them.

#308571 JVM1870WF001 GE Profile SpaceMaker XL1800 Over The Range Microwave - Blown fuses

Posted by Samurai Appliance Repair Man on 30 November 2014 - 08:11 PM

There was a GE tech bulletin out on this that said to check/replace the three door microswitches when the main fuse blows because if one of those switches gets noisy, it can blow the fuse.


#308352 Kenmore Stacked Washer/Dryer 417.99375100 Washer Won't Start

Posted by Samurai Appliance Repair Man on 27 November 2014 - 09:33 PM

Remove the front panel from the washer and then take the drive belt off.   Now run the washer and see if the motor shaft spins. If the motor doesn't run, then the drain pump, which is direct connected to the motor, is probably seized. Part number: 131208500

#308166 GE Advantium 120 model ZSC1001KSS 01 convection fan making noise

Posted by Samurai Appliance Repair Man on 24 November 2014 - 08:02 AM

An idea of what to replace?  Sure...

 

Fan motor Part number: AP2632786

Part number: AP2632786

 

Motor bracket Part number: AP2009911

Part number: AP2009911

 

Cooling fan blade Part number: AP2016543

Part number: AP2016543

 

Convection fan blade Part number: AP3668717

Part number: AP3668717

 

Would I just buy and replace all those parts? No. I would remove the cooker from the cabinet and get some eyeballs on fingers on the suspect parts and replace what will be obviously broken, bent, or FUBARed.

#308156 Most and Least Reliable Fridges per Consumer Reports

Posted by Samurai Appliance Repair Man on 24 November 2014 - 07:07 AM

I'm not a fan of CR so I'm surprised to find myself in substantial agreement with their recommendations.  

 

Their recommendation on Kenmore is interesting. Surely CR knows that Kenmore doesn't actually make anything. I wonder why they represent it as though it were, including it among other manufacturers and, in so doing, reinforcing that misconception that so many consumers have. The actual Kenmore model they promoted, the Elite 79043-- does anyone know who the actual manufacturer is? 




#308151 Samsung J1043 front loader making clicking noise on rotation

Posted by Samurai Appliance Repair Man on 24 November 2014 - 05:40 AM

Sounds like early basket support spider failure to me. 

 

At the end of the video, were you able to move the inner basket independently of the outer tub?




#308094 Frigidaire fez831as1 not starting

Posted by Samurai Appliance Repair Man on 23 November 2014 - 06:13 AM

Verify incoming power supply by measuring it with your meter. 

 

The washer and dryer are two different appliances (in one stacked unit)-- which one is not starting? Or is neither one starting?




#308093 W/Pool Dishwasher model DU1055XTVQ1 fills but wont run

Posted by Samurai Appliance Repair Man on 23 November 2014 - 06:08 AM

When I run into these motor failures (leaky bearing seal like Maytag1 said), I always replace the entire sump assembly, not just the motor Part number: AP5178641

Part number: AP5178641

 

And I have never had to remove one of these dishwashers to replace the sump assembly. In and out all while still installed. 




#307987 110.47531701 kenmore front load washer f20 code

Justin took point for all of us on this flaming poopy bag CCU debacle that Whirlpool laid for us to step in. You need to Evernote that little tidbit, Tone.




#307594 FGF378ACF Frigidaire Fire Ball ~Natural Gas

Posted by Samurai Appliance Repair Man on 14 November 2014 - 08:32 PM

I think the lengths are with the ceramic base, not the carborundum hot surface.  

 

Regardless, the key criterion is the current draw because this is what's used to flip the bimetal in the gas valve and release the gas.
