#300802 GE side-by-side Model gss20ieta vw howling from freezer compartment

Posted by DurhamAppliance on 12 August 2014 - 02:53 AM



I think you meant the old fan may ruin a new board. It is safe to put in a new fan with the original board to see if that stops it but never a new board with a suspect original fan.


#300767 Frigidaire washer GLTX 16708SO

Posted by DurhamAppliance on 11 August 2014 - 03:28 PM

always check to see if your model number is valid before searching for a manual


Use google, Appliancepartspros, Searspartsdirect.com etc. If nothing comes up or you can't determine what the mixup is, call customer to verify.


#300699 Amana Ref. 3-door Bottom Freezer / Model# AFI2538AES / Serial# 1308****NP

Posted by DurhamAppliance on 10 August 2014 - 11:21 AM

So based upon that post, either 2020 just happens to be another code or you may need to put in your code in reverse order. lol


#300696 Amana Ref. 3-door Bottom Freezer / Model# AFI2538AES / Serial# 1308****NP

Posted by DurhamAppliance on 10 August 2014 - 10:42 AM

good... several revisions uses the other board and a sloppy or third party vendor can make a mistake.

ps you might try codes 1411 0302 or 0202 and see if you can at least get the code accepted... some functions may not work though.


I also found a real interesting post :

Just some information on putting code in. I had the same exact model number and code 0202. could not get it to take the code. So I tried the putting the code in from right to left order and the fridge took the code and is working!! Has anyone else had this happen?




#300688 MAYTAG REF/FREZR.Model MFI2568AEB

Posted by DurhamAppliance on 10 August 2014 - 08:31 AM

exactly Gnominator. There is another recent post dealing with an Amana where I asked which of the two boards were installed.

http://appliantology...-serial-1308np/

The customer may be asking for the wrong board or, more than likely, the vendor is sending the wrong board. Vendors on eBay or Amazon may even be advertising incorrect information.


#300687 Samsung refrigerator RS265LABP/XAA

Posted by DurhamAppliance on 10 August 2014 - 08:28 AM

You left out potential evaporator fan cover failure, thermal fuse failue (some Samsungs have fuses as well as bi-metals) and although rare, mainboard failure. If you include all those, then you can justifiably say "any defrost failure." But isn't this true for just about all refrigerators... ie change out the defrost system and you will solve a defrost system problem, except with Samsung, you have to add the evap covers.

Dryerman, you've basically stated Samsung's position for in warranty repair. Samsung's stated policy for in warranty repair is if you are 95 percent sure the problem is between one of two parts, replace them both. For out of warranty work, since customer's money is an issue, repairs have to be more precise.

I've had many defrost problems where the issue was a bad bi-metal or sensor and had working heaters much more than 5 percent out of tolerance and I never replaced it and never received a call back. If no other issue can be found than I would look more closely at that heater, otherwise I wouldn't summarily change it. This is true especially if the heater is like one Patricio is dealing with where the customer would have pay for an entire evap as well as labor for removing the heater from that assembly.

what is the pn of the board you installed?


#300675 My GE J2S968SEK3SS takes much too long to get to temperature

Posted by DurhamAppliance on 09 August 2014 - 09:16 PM

We are glad that you fixed your problem. Your issue was a simple one but after re-reading this thread, your problem was actually the lack of simplicity. If you only advised your oven wasn't heating propely, one of the first responses you would have received was to ohm out your elements. However, by including extraneous cycling details, diagnostic confusion abounded and it appeared as though you were saying the bake element was energizing.

If at your house doing this repair, a trained tech would have quickly homed in on the problem and fixed your oven while you were still "explaining" to him the purported cycling order.

Anyhow, great job of sticking to it!

ps tech sheets and manuals are not infallible.


#300658 RF217ACRS Samsung Fridge not working

Posted by DurhamAppliance on 09 August 2014 - 01:33 PM

I agree but before it locks up again, run diagnostics. If everything checks out, make sure and reseat all thermistors. It's possible frost buildup may have partially dislodged a sensor connector and the connection may have improved once the frost melted some. I've seen frost buildup really put a strain on some of those connectors.

Also reseat connection to the display at the door hinge


#300645 RF217ACRS Samsung Fridge not working

Posted by DurhamAppliance on 09 August 2014 - 10:12 AM

Also you may want to check for an Open or shorted sensor. An OPEN or SHORTED sensor can shut down and lock up a Samsung fridge.
