#308587 GE JTP56 Electric Double Wall Oven No Heat

Posted by DurhamAppliance on 30 November 2014 - 10:19 PM

make sure you are getting 240vac....
First, check your breaker, then check. for proper voltage at the block.

#308550 Won't reach Pre Heat Temp 790.96512406

Posted by DurhamAppliance on 30 November 2014 - 01:40 PM

make sure to also check resistance of the sensor from its connector at the board as well.... by doing so, you are checking the probe, harness and all of its wiring. It's not uncommon to have a faulty harness. Also test the sensor, harness etc at the board connector after the oven is at high temp (unplug!) as on rare occasions, the wires/harness can have a short that only reveals after heat expansion. Compare readings with chart


#308549 Seimens Icemaker S361t70NNP/01

Posted by DurhamAppliance on 30 November 2014 - 01:16 PM

Btw Bro Spanner, That's one hellavu manual stash you got there. You're like the Library of Congress for Appliance manuals!


#308543 Seimens Icemaker S361t70NNP/01

Posted by DurhamAppliance on 30 November 2014 - 10:52 AM

Thanks Spanner but remember, we are trying to encourage techs (as opposed to diyers) to at least attempt to find and peruse manuals. Especially for info readily found inside manuals. If they cannot find a manual, a request is to be made in the proper forum. Then if the info in the manual isn't helpful, convoluted etc, we can all chime in to help. Otherwise, Appliantology will turn into nothing more than a tech line.

Thermostat?

Non sequitur Does Not Compute... oh, you said A&E? ok... now the statement makes sense.


#308454 What time did you guys get home on Wednesday night before Thanksgiving?

Posted by DurhamAppliance on 29 November 2014 - 09:45 AM

Well, I got home early.. My wife, in her infinite wisdom, decided to have the family Thanksgiving feast at our house this year. But our renovations are nowhere near complete. So I was painting and nailing, cooking and scrubbing , moving and dusting, vacuuming and caulking, climbing and sanding, priming and grouting and every other mfin' "-ing" they mention on those damned diy channels.

I'd rather been working on appliances through the night.

#308451 Whirlpool WGE30302 Oven overheating

Posted by DurhamAppliance on 29 November 2014 - 09:20 AM

Logically, if your oven temp is overheating, it's not because of a failed saftey thermostat which is actually a thermal fuse. It does not regulate heat, it is designed to blow if the oven reaches a certain temperature... it prevents fires. Specifically, according to the schematic, if your themal fuse blew, you would only have 120vac available to your bake and broil elements... ie too cold, not too hot.


#308447 Maytag Refrigerator MFI2569VEM

Posted by DurhamAppliance on 29 November 2014 - 08:54 AM

Jcrest, learn to use the forum search feature, wild card searching and you would have found helpful info, including your previous posts. Researching forums, using both the dedicated google search box as well as the site search box in the top corner can be as fruitful as having a manual. By not searching the forums, techs are missing out on a tremendous resource as well being able to find information in a fast and timely manner.

Seek first, then ask your questions..... try it.. search for "mfi2569*" in both search boxes as well as the download section.




#308446 Maytag Refrigerator MFI2569VEM

Posted by DurhamAppliance on 29 November 2014 - 08:36 AM

If the icemaker is not working whether it has no water or is malfunctioning , more cold air is directed at it to try to get it to make ice... your fresh food section recieves it's air through the icemaker vent. Turning off the icemaker at the board will normalize the air.


#308403 LG DISHWASHER LDF7551ST

Posted by DurhamAppliance on 28 November 2014 - 07:49 PM

Please create another manual request for the cooktop.... and don't forget, you can always search for the type of appliance to augment your search... ie.. i googled your model number and discovered it was a ge downdraft cooktop... so I searched for "GE downdraft cooktop" ... there is a file, not sure if it is compatible .... you may have to compare the models on Searspartsdirect or Appliancepartspros.. and see if they use the same control, etc. That is what we do when someone asks if a manual is compatible. Going through this takes a lot of work on our part so explaining how we do it can relieve some of our massive workload as well as allow you to obtain your manual faster.


#308380 K/A Range KERC607HBS6

Posted by DurhamAppliance on 28 November 2014 - 02:08 PM

that's interesting, I've only removed hidden bake elements from the rear on Samsungs but the parts break down and comments on Appliance parts pros for this model suggests it is removed from the rear as well. The video on the part is for a generic oven but the comments detail a hidden bake element removal from the rear.

If indeed it is from the side, that goes to show you ya cannot trust any information from any appliance repair site other than Appliantology.


#308371 LG DISHWASHER LDF7551ST

Posted by DurhamAppliance on 28 November 2014 - 08:46 AM

If ldf* gave you too many and ldf7551st did not give you anything, you then must increase/decrease your search string. Once you get a reasonable number of results (hopefully only one), then you must click on the link to see if the file description covers your model. If the description doesn't state your model, download the manuals and look at them directly for compatibility.
Sometimes this takes a bit of work, but this is part of what we do when fulfilling a model request.
