Topics I've Started

GE side by side fridge GSS20IEMBWW

18 November 2013 - 06:53 PM

GSS20IEMBWW.  I found that the evap fan was not running so I replaced the fan motor and it still did not work.  I called one of my buddies that is a GE tech and he said to change the main board.  I changed the main board today and the compressor wouldn't even kick on and I waited for a good 35 min because i thought that it may be in defrost mode or something.  I put a jumper wire between comp and L1 at the board and the compressor fired right up which means its not the compressor.  I then put the old board back in and it did not start up then either(compressor or evap fan).  I'm lost on this one looking for some guidence.  When I jump the comp to L1 and the compressor kicks on, should the evap fan start up too?  Why is the compressor not kicking on under normal operation?

Samsung refrigerator slow ice production.

10 April 2013 - 02:57 PM

Model #RF265AABP.  Customer complaining of slow ice production.  I put a thermometer in the freezer and called back to have the customer check the temp and it was right around zero.  I felt in the ice mold and there was water forming into ice in the mold and it seemed full front to back.  Wondering what could cause the slow production.

Frigidaire Gallery Refrigerator Ice Makers don't work

19 March 2013 - 03:00 PM

I looked at a Refrigerator with 2 ice makers neither of which work.  Model # LGUB2642LF0.  I checked the temp in the freezer and it got down between 10 to 12 F.  I tried advancing the one in the freezer with a screwdriver and it never responded.  The one in the fridge I had never seen one like that before.  I touched the ice mold and it was warm to the touch.  The customer said when the one in the fridge worked the cubes seemed to be not frozen very well.  They said they have had this unit for 3 years and the one in the freezer never worked and the one in the fridge quit completely about a month ago.  I also ohmed out the water valve and they tested good.

Samsung Dryer won't turn off in sensor mode.

19 March 2013 - 11:37 AM

I had a call and the people said the sensor mode wouldn't  dry the clothes.  These people live over 100 miles away so I replaced the control board and the sensor itself.  Now they have called back and said the dryer won't shut off in sensor mode, that it starts all over.  They said that it will count down and shut off in timed dry.  Could somebody give me some possible causes for these symptoms?  I know that I plugged in the all the connectors when I changed the control board and the sensor bars.
