Amana gas slide in oven ACS3350AS burner igniters are not firing

27 August 2014 - 08:31 AM

My much loved Amana gas slide in oven ACS3350AS burner igniters are not firing. None of them, they all stopped at once. I searched the forums and web and believe the part I need is the spark module, correct?

GE pot scrubber model GSD2220Z04BB is it worth fixing?

22 February 2014 - 11:52 AM

I am working on an older GE pot scrubber dishwasher that I posted about back in 2009. At that time I recall I put a new inlet valve on it and have not heard about it since.




Now two new renters later it is acting up again. Current renter reported half dissolved soap packs in the soap tray. FYI this renter is on the road a lot and it does not get used regulary. It appears to be doing the same thing as last time.


I disarmed the latch lockout and opened the door a crack, started it and it spurts out a small initial little burst then stops. Looks like it is just recirculating what was in the unit and not filling. I let it go for a while and it just sat there, no more water entered and it did not fill. I stopped it then dumped in a quart of water, it slowly starter to pump more, the rotor arms started slowly turning. I let it go through a full wesh/dry cycle with no soap in it a couple of times then tried it with soap, same thing, half dissolved soap packs in the soap tray. It also does not seem like the heating coil is getting hot, 


I took the plastic drain grate out of the bottom and cleaned it, checked to see the water shut off is full open and checked to see the floatie thingy seems free. 





whirlpool quiet partner II Model DU1145XTPB7 - Normal light flashing

27 January 2014 - 10:53 AM

I am working on a friends whirlpool quiet partner DU1145XTPB7 that won't start. Normal light was flashing. Tried turning off the breaker for a few minutes, turned back on and had no lights. Presses on and cancel at the same time, sounded like the pump started for a few seconds then it went back to the normal light flashing.  


From searching the forum I think my next step is to go over there and do this do this... Correct?

A rapidly blinking LED over one of the keys of the keypad (or sometimes a “dead” keypad/console)

indicates one or more key switch lines are stuck or shorted on either the control or the keypad.

To determine if the control or keypad is faulty, do the following test:
1. Unplug dishwasher or disconnect power.
2. Open the dishwasher door.
3. Open console and disconnect the keypad ribbon connection from the control (at P1).

Make sure all other connections are made.
4. Put console back together. Do not close the dishwasher door.
5. Plug in dishwasher or reconnect power.
6. Wait 5 seconds.
7. Close dishwasher door.
8. Monitor the control’s response:
➔If the control is OK (no longer sees shorts with the keypad unplugged),

it will respond by turning on a Drain Motor for 2 minutes.

Check and/or replace the keypad if the control responds OK.
➔If the control is not OK (still sees shorts with the keypad unplugged),

then the drain motor will NOT respond and will remain off.

If no response, replace the control.


Kitchen Aid refrigerator not cooling ktrc22ekss01

17 October 2013 - 06:07 PM

My Kitchen Aid refrigerator is not cooling enough, it is model#  ktrc22ekss01top freezer. The Freezer is cold, 10 degrees. The refrigerator is at 50 and is on the coldest setting. There is some cool air coming out of the vent at the back of the refrigerator. I went through the Warm Refrigerator Troubleshooting Flowchart and I am at the yellow box that says Disassemble freezer to get eyeballs on evaporator coil. I think this is behind the panel at the back of the freezer. I am going to do some more digging and see if I am correct and try and get at it. My guess right now is a defrost issue. Anyone have any tips, I'll post back when I learn more. 


Amana Oven Control Board 31944801 - how to get replace

15 August 2013 - 10:26 AM

Looks like my Amana gas oven ACS3350AS control board is shot. The more temp/timer button in the upper right is not functioning, can't increase temp from default 350 or set the timer. feels like it may be bad button or flat out busted. Parts are not available so I need to get it out to see whats up and perhaps ship off to be repaired. I have seen prices from $116 to $200.

Q 1 - How do I get the stove apart to get to it.

Q2 Anyone have a suggestion/review as to a repair service .
