WFW8300SW02 power surge issue

30 December 2010 - 06:10 PM

Customer has two units same model, WFW8300SW02. They said the power went out, units locked in cycle, could not reset via normal means, door locked. Tried unplugging for +1 hour, no effect. Got one unit to show "F01", faulty CCU in diagnostic mode. Other unit showed "F28", serial communication error. I assumed both CCU's were faulty and replaced them with W10205839. Both units will start a cycle and lock the door, then nothing. It cannot unlock the door, won't go fully into diagnostic mode (all I can get it to do is flash all LED's) and doesn't ever try to fill with water. What is going on? Why can't they go into diagnostic mode? Did the steps to enter diagnostic mode change with the new board? Please help me out.

GE SCB1001KSS01 stuck in Demo mode

14 May 2010 - 05:49 AM

It somehow got stuck in demo mode. GE was no help at all (really? GE was unhelpful, you don't believe it?). The owner's manual mentions nothing about demo mode. How do I get this back into normal operating mode? Owner has tried to cut the power to the unit for up to one week and it still reverts to demo mode.

Whirlpool gs6shexns00 ref lights not coming on

06 May 2010 - 05:29 AM

The freezer lights work, there is power coming into the ref door switch and it has continuity so the power is passing through the door switch. No power to either the upper bulb socket or the lower bulb socket. The main control board is sending power out and getting it back. I have checked the wiring diagrams but don't see any components in the circuit which could be open. The diagram shows a number of plugs in the wiring harness but I don't know where these might be located. Anyone have this trouble before?

Maytag LSE7806ACE fills but won't agitate or spin

23 December 2009 - 09:14 AM

Wouldn't do anything upon arrival, found open fuse and replaced. With good fuse it will fill to any level, any temp but will not agitate. When lid is opened fill stops so I assume the lid switch is OK but I could be wrong (wouldn't be the first time). I checked all the timer contacts and they seem fine. I get no power to the motor. Is it the lid switch? What else could it be?

Kenmore (WP) 10656534400 Not Making Ice

23 August 2007 - 01:21 AM

Freezer door ice bin with the optic boards for shut off, replaced the control boards 4389102 and thought it was a slam-dunk, but failed to make ice. Found 55 vac from wiring harness as measured with my Fluke T1000 which guesses AC vs DC and 110 vac with my Fluke 77 (auto-ranging digital) set on VAC. With the i/m plugged in I get 84 vac from L to N on the module with the Fluke 77. I made a test harness from a new i/m kit and the power from the i/m harness won't even light a 60 watt light bulb so I'm guessing there is no emf behind the voltage. Where can I get a schematic for this unit? What is (is there) the equivalent WP model? Is there a bad connection somewhere that someone else has seen? Main control board?
