In Topic: DCS RGS-364GDSS-L range one burner sparking continuously

27 January 2012 - 01:43 PM

OK, I will certainly try that. I assume that what I would be looking for is if the sparking problem moves to the other burner, there is something wrong with the spark module?

I could see the arc moving across from the ignitor to the burner. It passes right thru the flame, and connects to the burner ring. I don't understand why the flame is not cancelling the spark.

Unfortunately I will not be able to revisit the customer for a week--I am only servicing that area once a week--so I would really like to have a plan for what to look for. The customer and I are getting a bit tired of each other! Any more hints you can think of would be much appreciated.

I swiped it with steel wool and inspected the ceramic for cracks. Can you suggest a better cleaning method? Thanks Reg!

In Topic: GE fridge PSC25PSWASS Service Manual please

The complaint is the temperature is not being maintained in fresh food section--when I arrived the ff section was 50 degrees and the freezer was frosted over. I could not perform the built-in defrost system diagnostics because at some point the tech sheet had been removed and lost. I tested the continuity of the defrost heater, found it to be fine, but I did not know how to force a defrost, so overall operation of the defrost system is unknown. There is an auxiliary "chill fan" in the freezer that was not operating. I measured continuity on it and found it to be open. Not sure if non-operation of this chill fan could cause a freeze-over....ideas?

Do you have the tech sheet at least for this fridge?
