Whirlpool Dryer keeps Blowing Fuse

01 May 2013 - 03:23 PM

I am working on a whirlpool dryer with the lint trap at the top. It presented with a blown thermal fuse (the little white one) so I replaced it, cleaned out the vent, checked the airflow outside which was pretty strong and left. They called back and said it worked for 20 minutes and died. I went back and the same fuse is dead again. I checked the operating thermostat with a match and it worked but I replaced it anyway. They called back again - same deal! Has anyone had a failing motor or timer cause this before?

GE PDS22MBWABB No Temperature Display

GE bottom freezer single refrigerator door. I have a light on in the top beer section but thats it. No cooling, no fans, nothing. I checked for voltage at the plug that goes into the display board an got 2.6 - 3.0 volts DC. What do ya think? What voltage is supposed to be there.

Need some help with this range. Customer complaint: Door locked and no power to controls. I went and tore it all apart determined that the control transformer was fried on the primary voltage side. Replaced it reassembled and all was good. They call back a week later - same thing. They ran the F#@&*^! self clean and came back a few hours later and the door was locked and the display is dead. Its the tranformer again. Whats up?

Jenn Air Downdraft Slide-in JDS9865bdp

04 October 2011 - 02:35 PM

I need some ideas on this Jenn air. The customer complaint was oven not hot enough. I checked it in various positions in side with my thermocouple and it indeed averages about 75 degrees cooler than set after letting it warm up plenty long. This is with the control calibrated all the way up (35 degrees). So I checked the sensor and I reads 1080 or so at room temp. The only thing left is the control, so I replaced it. Nothing has changed. I am at a loss, I even tried in a fit of desperation to reposition the sensor lower in the oven cavity to no avail. Any advise would be appreciated.

Jenn Air Downdraft Slide-in JDS9860AAP

27 July 2011 - 10:08 PM

Working on a Jenn air down draft. Complaint was that the exhaust fan wouldn't work. Found the fan relay board in the back was crispy black. So I ordered one, installed it wire for wire and turned the power back and the breaker instantly tripped. I was digusted to find the same exact burn patern on the new relay I just installed. I looked it all over and couldn't find any shorted wiring, the motor didn't seem to be shorted. Any ideas? The diagram shows the neutral wire from the fan relay board going to the neutral of the main terminal block, but on this oven it was going to the main EOC to the terminal marked " NB ". The diagram shows this wire going to the DLB relay, In other words the wires were switched. I don't know if this matters, if it is the cause of my problem, if its a typo, or what. I don't know if someone else has worked on this unit and maybe switched the wires or what. I don't want to put in another relay until I have a theory on what happened. Any help would be appreciated.
