Yesterday, 11:54 PM

Sorry, end of day posting.  JennAir dual fuel, mysterious and intermittent cooking results.

Since your handle is "landlord", is this a rental unit?  I have recently replaced three knobs on dryers from a complaint of "non-working timer" in rental properties.  In all three cases, the tenant was breaking the knob because they were trying to turn it in either direction. 


If you've never replaced a knob, they can take a little thought and puzzling... they can look right but not be lined up in a way that works. Might take you two or three attempts.  

In Topic: KTRC22ELBL01 -- 50 VAC at isolation valve

04 July 2014 - 09:38 AM

The diode purpose is to stop the back flow of electricity back to the the other secondary water or ice valve when main filter inlet valve is energized.




I guess that makes sense, but then the question in my mind becomes: "does the diode then lengthen the life expectancy of the dual valve or prevent them from energizing when the isolation valve receives current or both?"  In other words, how mission critical is the diode?


The reason I ask is that I remember a guy on Whirlpool Techline a few months ago telling me "well just hope that it's the board because if the diode's gone, it's a non serviceable part."  (this was a different call, bottom mount french door; turned out to be bad board).


I'm not sure why that would be true -- seems like even if the wire harness wasn't an available part, why couldn't you cut it out and splice the wiring together? 

I think he is talking more about the look up itself.  I couldn't find a picture but I think this wiring harness is it.  But how can you know for sure before ordering said part without a picture?  I just checked with our supplier, and they didn't have any in stock.  But they show the Whirlpool factory as having 15 in stock....




Exactly.  I ordered it anyway; figured I'll look at it thru the wrapping when we get it.  Worst case scenario is that Marcone has to put 30 bucks back on our credit line when we return the part.

In Topic: LG fridge LFX31925ST/00 not cooling

I have heard of the inverter/multiphase compressors, but haven't worked on any.  Open line between power connection and ground should be appropriate.


Give us a little more detail here -- have you looked at a frost pattern?  Do you have a warm FF and cold FZ? Have you pulled any error codes?  Have you established that the temperature sensing is behaving correctly? 

In Topic: Matag LA 216 will not spin

30 June 2014 - 07:55 PM

Is this machine draining out water?


If not, take the belt off the water pump and see if the machine spins. If it spins without the water pump, you've found why the belts are burning.  


You're probably right, you probably are losing the transmission, but you might as well try and see if the easy fix is in play.
