In Topic: Maytag LDG4914AAE gas dryer will not heat

27 June 2014 - 09:55 AM

You guys were right again. It was the flame sensor.  I ordered the part form Appliance Parts Pro and it was delivered in less than 36 hours from the time I placed my order!


You guys are the best!  Thanks again.

Thanks much, guys!   I'll report back after I replace it. 


Thanks again!

In Topic: Can you identify this L.G. refrigerator part?

29 April 2013 - 09:27 AM

I'm convinced it doesn't go with the refrigerator too. 


I did find out why the ice maker wasn't working. It's my fault.  When I hooked up the water line, I didn't see the cap on the inlet so, when I saw the water line attached to the back of the frig went into an opening in the bottom, I pulled it a little to see if it popped out for connection. It didn't.  Then I found the connection under the cap.  So today I pulled the frig out and took off the bottom panel.  Sure enough!  I pulled the line enough so it kinked the water line that came with the fridge at the connector.  The funny thing is that once I got that fixed, it's still not making ice but I'm going to give it some time.  I thought it would start filling up the ice slots immediately but it didn't.   I'll just give it some time and check later. 


Thanks for your help, everyone.  You confirmed what I suspected. I'm sure the installers dropped that. It probably fell from a shirt pocket or something when they were bending over plugging in the juice. In fact, it was near the wall outlet.

Thanks guys!   Whatever it is, it's so pristine and clean that the delivery guys must have dropped it. It doesn't look like it was ever used.  It doesn't look like any part I've ever seen in a appliance but, not being familiar with N.G. stuff, I wanted to ask about it.


As for the ice maker, it's been about 12 hours since I hooked it up and turned on the water and still no ice.  No water has entered the cube trays.  I'll give it a little longer.  There are three little lights on the ice maker.  The middle one is on but the owner's manual says nothing about them.  If it doesn't start making ice by this afternoon, I'll unhook it at the refrigerator connector and see if water is making it that far.  Water did flow in the line when I turned it on but I don't know if it's making it to the frig without pulling it out again.

The dolly they used was just the regular two-wheeled manual type that wouldn't have a delicate part like this.


There were no children here so it's not a toy.   Also, when I pulled out the old refrigerator to clean the floor, there was nothing there at all so I know it appeared there when the delivery guys installed the refrigerator  It was laying under the refrigerator and to it's left side (looking from the front) when I pulled it out to install the water line.  Really weird!   I doubt if has anything to do with it but my ice maker still hasn't filled with water. The water is on and there is pressure in the line.  Maybe it just has to run through a couple cycles to purge air out of the line (?).  The freezer was at it's working temperature when I hooked up the line so it's not that the freezer isn't cold enough.  The ice maker switch is turned on too.   I'm guessing I will see ice by tomorrow.


The part seems to be some sort of little timer.  It winds up like a watch and then spins the little cam and pulley when released.  Maybe it just fell out of one of the delivery guys' pockets.  


This reminds me of an old trick my father pulled on me when I was a kid. I rebuilt my motorcycle engine completely and, when I was done, I found a bearing left on the workbench.   It drove me nuts!   Years later I found out that my father put it there as a joke.  It's an old trick but I hadn't heard of it at the time.   I wonder if the delivery guys have a sense of humor like my father's!  :-)

It's a gigi.

 LOL!  That's it!  It's the inverse timer for the sequential gonculator circuit of the gigi!
