#287316 GE pot scrubber model GSD2220Z04BB is it worth fixing?

Posted by vudutu on 10 March 2014 - 03:14 PM

Budget Appliance Repair - I think you might have nailed it. A quick visual inspection of the connectors and wires showed no burnt wires but some browning inside the clear plastic spade connector covers on each of the end connectors on the three wire ENERGY OPTIONS switch ...


BUT when I pulled the connectors of the switches the farthest right male spade connector came out of the switch along with the female wiring harness spade connector. It looks like the switch overheated as it looks melted around where the male spade came out. Can't find the wiring diagram to jump it but I am betting this is it.


On the front upper left of the panel are two rocker switches the ENERGY OPTIONS has three wires, the CYCLES has two wires - switch sets are marked ...


CYCLES {Pot scrubber - Normal wash} - on the left          ENERGY OPTIONS - {off - on} - on the right


Sooo I used the spade that came out and jumped the center connector to the far right connector, threw a couple of quarts of water in the bottom to see if the drain solenoid would kick. Popped a Moerlein OTR ale, started a full cycle and kicked back and read about our local beer revival.




Sure enough , when the timer hit SHORT CYCLE the drain kicked in, so after this full cycle runs I will put a soap pack in and see if it runs and finishes with no soap residue and report back.


Thanks you guys rock.

Electro Doc "I presume you are talking about the condenser, the evap is in the freezer" - Yes, sorry


You guys rock.


I think the trick here is to get the freezer right then set the fridge.  I gave it 24 hours, it held at 0 and 40, I then set the freezer a half point warmer. it went to 3 degrees  so it took it back to 4, I then went a half notch cooler on the fridge each day until I got it to 37 degrees. 


Thanks again!

Thanks Senpal, I will do some more looking at the stove and googling on the disassembly, so far I don't get a vision on removal.  I'll check these guys out. Come on, Bud Ice? You know who owns these guys,  :rolleyes: check out some local brews.
