I have a Kitchenaid KSRT25CR side-by-side refridgerator with what sounds like a loud bad fan bearing noise coming from underneith the refridg.  Does anyone know how to get at the fan to see if it is bad, or even to replace it?  I can't find any service manuals for this refridg anywhere.

Cleaning out a Friedrich SS12L30 room A/C

16 October 2014 - 12:54 PM

I have a Friedrich SS12L30 room A/C that recently gotten two problems.  It cools fine, but there is black stuff that coming out of the air vents.  Is this cleanable?  If so, how?


Also, water from the evaporator isn't draining out the back of the machine well, and builds up in the tray underneath the evaporator.  Can the drain port be easily cleaned as well?  If so, how?


Is there a way to get the service manual for this A/C unit?


Thanks in advance.



Bosch Washer WAS20160UC drain problem

14 January 2014 - 03:41 PM

I have a strange problem with a Bosch Axxis washing machine model WAS20160UC.


The machine will work fine for a while, then stop with an F18 error.  I can't find the error in the service manual or training presentation, but I found it with a Google search.  What is happening is that when the drain pump stops pumping for about 20 seconds with water still in the tub, an F18 error occurs.  I did a manual drain, and opened up the drain pump impeller housing (there is a screw-on cap).  The impeller is clear, and the shaft turns freely.  I then put the maching on drain, and press start, and the drain solenoid clicks open, but the pump doesn't turn.  I do this a couple more times, and the impeller starts turning.  I then put everything back together, and it will run for several loads, then quits with the F18 error.  I haven't taken apart the machine to test the pump windings, but the windings on these things are reasonably heavy, and I would be supprised to have an intermittent broken winding.


I would have suspected a bad bearing in the pump, but the shaft turns fine.  When I turn the impeller, I can feel a magnetic pull ever 1/2 turn or so, so I suspect this pump has a magnetic rotor (Bosch uses the same arrangement in their dishwashers.


Anybody got a clue as to what is going on?  Is this a common problem with these machines?


Thanks in advance.
