GE monogram stove top mod. zgu385nsmss burned out transformers

18 February 2015 - 02:24 AM

7 year old ge monogram mod#zgu385nsmss gas stove top with no spark ignition. I checked voltage leaving transformer. Supposed to be 12 volts and 240 volts.Got No reading. Replaced transformer and before I could turn a gas knob and test ignition i smelled something. transformer was extremely hot and is dead again. I was then told by young kid who lives in house who didnt tell anybody that he was boiling water and spilled water on front left burner while it was sparking. What confuses me is that the new transformer burned out when i wasnt even calling for spark. If the igniter module is failed and shorting, isnt it receiving no voltage until one of the gas knobs is turned? I then disconnected incoming harness at igniter module and got full continuity from all but one of the burner spark ignition switches when turned. Non seem to be switching prematurely. is replacing the transformer and igniter module going to solve this or is it shorting before the module? There is one more harness connection that goes to 5 little indicator lights that illuminate the knobs. appreciate any input on this.

Start relay bad again on fridge. Frigidaire mod. Frs6r4eb0

28 May 2014 - 01:36 PM

Just replaced the start relay about 4 months ago and it's clicking again and no compressor start-up. Fridge is about 9 years old. Is it worth trying again? Went through this a few years ago with an upright frigidaire freezer and changed atart relay 3 times before getting rid of it..

samsung refrigerator RFG297AARS ice maker quit

23 November 2013 - 05:53 PM

The last couple batches of ice were really wimpy looking and they were melded together with a frozen puddle in the bottom of the bin. It then completely stopped making ice. I actually had the ice maker out a couple months ago but I reinstalled it when we were getting error codes that only occured when we lost power temporarily to the house. The model of the icemaker is IMC701 My biggest concern would be if I replaced the icemaker and it was a different problem. Any way to test this or is it a pretty good chance it is the unit?

kitchenaide freezer ice maker. is this possible?

26 June 2013 - 07:23 PM

Post 2002 refrigerator and the optic eye is reading the two flashes and a pause like it is supposed to on opening the freezer, but when shutting the adjacent flap I am not getting the solid red light. It is still blinking two flashes. The thing is, they are getting ice periodically. Sometimes a couple batches a day. I had them turn the freezer to colder setting because it was on the higher side and after 24 hrs no batch. Is it definitely the optic sensor and is it possible that it is working periodically? thanks

36" viking range spark module quit again

24 June 2013 - 02:10 PM

Just found out that A spark module quit that was only in for about 5 months. The original was in for about 7 years and this one has failed now with the same two right burners again. The left burners are fine. I already tested it and it is definitely the module that failed. I was hoping it was a common wire from that side, but it is not. Is this just bad luck, coincidence, or definitely faulty replacement? I believe part number is PA020048.   thanks
