Friedrich PTAC Heating Element

03 January 2014 - 01:05 PM

Friedrich PTAC/Model PDH15K5SD-C


Anyone know of a place on the I-Net to get a heating element for this unit? We were told by three supply houses  these are back ordered until late January. Some kind of supply issue with Friedrich or supplier.


Get's real cold in the back of the shop. -15 here on Monday. Thanks for the help.

"Swipe" the Tech Sheet

22 March 2013 - 07:57 AM

Nothing more frustrating than getting to a job and finding that the Tech Sheet is missing.For those who want the tech sheet. I suggest buying a portable scanner--like the Magic Wand (Amazon--60 Bucks) and scanning the sheet then uploading it to your computer as a JPG or PDF. This way, you save the Tech Sheet on the unit for another brother who may have to work on it.


We do vintage appliance restoration/repair. This tool saves the day as I can swipe diagrams from units that have hard-to-find info. so the next time I work a similar unit, I have a diagram for a unit that, in most cases, will not have the diagram with it. 

208V For 240V Dryers

27 February 2013 - 09:28 PM

Went to an apartment complex today. Complaint was all dryers (front load LGs and Samsungs) take too long to dry clothes (4 units) and two that don't heat at all. Confirmed that voltage to outlets was 208 (units rated at 240v). Two units that didn't heat at all had burned out elements. I am thinking that the 208, at reduced power watts, causes customers to run dryers extra long--hence premature wear. The other 4 units that take too long to dry clothes are just underpowered wattage wise. My question: is there a 208v element for these units that will make them work good?

LG Service

18 January 2013 - 08:19 PM

As a authorized Samsung Servicer, I get customer requests (friend of a friend) to service LG washers, dryers, fridges. However, when I inquired with LG how to go about finding a website where one can attain official service status with downloads of service manuals, I was told such a site doesn't exist by 3 company reps. Any enlightenment here would help.
