#312095 GE Fridge - Model# GSH25VGPACC

Posted by DurhamAppliance on Today, 08:36 AM

This tech sheet should apply. Acquired by searching for gss25v* instead of gsh25v* . The "h",if i recall, only signifies the model is a Home Depot builders model... so it's the same but pretty basic.


#312094 GE Fridge - Model# GSH25VGPACC

Posted by DurhamAppliance on Today, 08:29 AM

this is a standard ge profile.... it appears it has a 4 button interface meaning you cannot enter diagnostics or force defrost from the interface. Standard damper withn no ff air channel....

see http://appliantology...r-survival-kit/

If you have any specific repair questions, create a topic in the kitchen repair forum

#312061 Brother Printers

Posted by DurhamAppliance on Yesterday, 03:34 PM

See, that's why corporations and their lackeys want to elminate the arts from education since they foster thinking out the box. All they want you to learn, is how to screw a nut on a bolt. This way you can help them. But people like you, who think out the box, are always finding ways to attack corporate profits ie their bottom line. Shame on you!

btw, you got any more tips? lol

#312037 Extreme data logging

Posted by DurhamAppliance on Yesterday, 12:47 PM

Yeah, I have seen similar devices but from what I gather, the android portion allows for nfc communication which means you have to stand around with your phone to obtain real time logging info. To download from the logging device after your logging period is over, it appears you need to download to a pc.

***update....after more careful study (downloaded the manual) , this product apparently allows all accumulated data to be downloaded to Android device with NfC. (ios eat your heart out... lol) next step... affordability.... checking it out now....... price $49! for temp only and $79 for temp/humidity..... I may take the plunge.... great find Bro L!

Did you search the download section prior to requesting (Please read the notices located on the main page of the Manual Request forum)?

If you searched but was unsuccessful, check out http://appliantology...-appliantology/making sure to watch the video on searching for documents.

Let us know if you still have problems locating the info.

#311979 ZICS36NABRH (2002) - Defrost timer replaced but not advancing

Posted by DurhamAppliance on 25 January 2015 - 04:15 PM

That is the proper configuration for this model, bro A97 but that doesn't mean this timer is working properly.

Timer test: Disconnect timer..

1 Check timer motor winding for some resistance.... since there is a capacitor in series with the winding, set your meter to read microfarads. If you see some resistance, then the motor is more than likely fine.

2 test for continuity from 1 and 3 while the timer is set to standard cooling. You probably will find continuity based on the info you provided

3 manually advance the timer to the defrost cycle and you should now have continuity from 1 to 4... which I expect you have.

So If your neutral line is fine, and if you have some resistance in the windings of your timer, then it has to be the connector or possibly a timer with an operating motor but the gearing is stuck.

Why make three separate threads for the same issue, Bro Walt? Are they different machines? Did you forget the earlier threads? If the suggestions you received did not help, just indicate it and you may receive more suggestions.

It's also beneficial to other techs to see what has been previously suggested and tried. There is no need or benefit in making additional duplicate threads.

Anyhow, Merging the three threads.

#311920 Kitchenaid Superba KSRB22QFBL00 Ice Dispenser -- Solenoid or Motor?

Posted by DurhamAppliance on 24 January 2015 - 04:57 PM

you can always connect a lamp cord to the auger motor to test it out. Fun to do and you'll learn a thing or two.... well, fun for us tech geeks at least. Same with Solenoid.

#311903 Kitchenaid Superba KSRB22QFBL00 Ice Dispenser -- Solenoid or Motor?

Posted by DurhamAppliance on 24 January 2015 - 01:16 PM

do you have 120vac to the auger motor when you press the paddle... must also hold/tape the door switch closed?

You can rule out the Solenoid as it has no effect on the dispensing except to change the ice being dispensed from crushed to cubed. If it doesn't work, you will still get ice, but crushed only.

#311899 Kitchenaid Superba KSRB22QFBL00 Ice Dispenser -- Solenoid or Motor?

Posted by DurhamAppliance on 24 January 2015 - 12:35 PM

His model number is in the topic tag... not the best place to put it as some browsers do not show it.
I will edit and place it in the title.

Bro Bryan, this year we have modified the rules slightly, in that Threads with model numbers in the title will receive preferential treatment. We will no longer delete the topic so long as the model number is in the body of the post. These changes reflect the changes in the way google scans/rates the threads.

Posted by DurhamAppliance on 24 January 2015 - 05:01 AM

Is it defrost or is the icemaker's heater staying on. If you look under the icemaker, you will see a silver u-shaped rod attached to the mold. Its job is to heat the mold during harvest to help free the ice from the mold. Check to see if that is causing your heat issue. Careful, that thing gets really hot.

#311871 Kenmore #253.78822010 Refrigerator

Posted by DurhamAppliance on 23 January 2015 - 08:17 PM

Ok, when you say defrost timer, we assume you mean a mechanical timer as opposed to a defrost control board.

So are you saying you are a tech doing this for a customer yet you do not have the tech sheet or manual?? We provide this information to diyers all the time but we expect brothers in the business to at least attempt to seek out the information first. see http://appliantology...air-technician/

First step... learn, if you do not know, who makes Kenmore fridges that have a 253 model number prefix. From that, you should be able to find info on the board and how to enter defrost... if you still cannot find the info, let us know and we will help.... you know... the give a man a fish thing.

While you are attempting to learn how to enter defrost, let's examine some other potential issues:

Are you sure your cold control isn't faulty thus causing the fridge to run continuously? I've had several of these fridges where I'd wound up changing the defrost control board and the cold control.

What are the temp settings? Freezer and Fresh food temps?

Make sure all air vents, including air return vents are clear.... if you have this problem, you should have noticed increased fresh food temps.

The next two possibilities are rare but happens:

Has anyone else recently worked on the fridge... was it bought second hand? The reason behind this question is I have known occasions that someone attempting to fix a failed evap fan puts in the wrong fan which reverses the air flow causing the fan to suck air through the freezer door gaskets causing frost.

And finally, is there an icemaker? If so, make sure the icemaker heater (or freezr light bulb) isn't staying on.. the heat from it can cause frost.... and if there is no icemaker , make sure the port where the icemaker fill tube enters the freezer is sealed or there is a properlynseated fill tube in place that seals the opening (tube needs to have its water line connected to the valve or if water line is missing, plugged )

other than that... check for possible system over/undercharge (somebody else has to help you on this possibility).... if all of these things check out, I got nuthin'.

#311869 GE psw23psscss temperature fluctuations

Posted by DurhamAppliance on 23 January 2015 - 07:27 PM

One thing I cannot stress enough when dealing with a hard-to-diagnose GE with temp issues is if everything appears to check out ok, change all thermistors before you buy an expensive board. Thermistors are very inexpensive and testing them properly can be an art and can sometimes fool even the best "thermistor artist."

Your temp data seems to suggest that you have a problem with your evap thermistor. It looks like your freezer goes through too many prechill and defrost cycles. Your model enters prechill which reduces temperature significantly prior to entering defrost. This prevents the heat from the defrost cycle from negatively affecting your food.

Replace evap thermistors in both compartments but also replace the remaining thermistors.... this way, if installed properly, you can rule them out as the cause and then concentrate on other areas.

Ps it is important that you mount your evap thermistors properly and make sure not to remove the straps holding the thermal block against the fresh food evap if, in fact, your fresh food evap thermistor is located inside a thermal block. Per GE, you will never be able to re-tightened that block sufficiently. The new thermistor will not have the barbs that keep the original thermistor inside the block so use rtv sealant to keep the thermistor inside the block. I am assuming this model uses the thermal block on the fresh food evap... if not, nevermind lol.. it's Friday night and this latest glass of beer will not allow me to look up the diagram.... bad beer... bad boy... lol.
