#316644 GE IM6 ice maker over filling

Posted by mrjtwright on 31 March 2015 - 11:50 AM

Thanks.  I've studied the circuitry and mechanics enough now to know 9 o clock is correct but I still picture the new batch of ice coming to rest on top of the ejector after the cycle

#316534 GE IM6 ice maker over filling

Posted by mrjtwright on 30 March 2015 - 11:43 AM

Well, after finally getting to see symptoms, the water does appear to be over filling the ice maker.  While the valve was not dripping at the time, I replaced it anyway since I had no other path to take.  Customer reports problem solved.  I'm still a little puzzled at the 9 o clock position though.  I appreciate everyones input in trying to help through this one.

#286683 GE WBSR3140D0WW Washer Tub Sagging

To complete this thread, I confirmed that the base was bent up, likely from moving with a Dolly as Kurtius stated.  Thanks for the help

#286678 Whirlpool WTW5830SW0 Spin Cycle Keeps failing

Posted by mrjtwright on 03 March 2014 - 10:53 AM

Hi, I was contacted to assist in a new transmission installation a homeowner was attempting.  It was my first time for this also but it wasn't  too difficult.  Everything was good for about a year, then she called and stated the washer wasn't spinning.  Couplers in tact so I pulled the transmission.  It appeared the e-clip that holds the clutch pads in place was MIA.  I installed a new clip and everything seemed to work for about 5 loads.  Then she complained it doesn't spin again.  I pulled the tranny expecting to find a clip gone but everything seemed intact and could not see anything worn.  I reassembled everything and it worked for another 5 loads of so.  One thing that struck me as odd was during my test, it spun with water in the tub.  I did just fast forward the timer to rinse after it filled so I thought I just landed a little past the drain cycle.  Any thoughts? I'd this next trip to be my last 

#248943 Microwave turntable turns when door is opened

Posted by mrjtwright on 22 February 2013 - 09:54 AM

I'll be damned....and there's a store about 3 miles away from me..........



(it seems to never end)

Hah! You should hear my wife!......."Well, what about the microwave? is it fixed yet? What's the problem? How do I reheat my coffee? You said you were going to fix it!!!"


MrDave buddy, while I can appreciate your tenacity to want to repair this, I'm gonna have to take her side here.  It's been 50 days and you haven't been able to get the cover off yet.  Happy wife, happy life.....just sayin.  Otherwise, order the Caveman switch for $2.50 and give it a shot.

#247329 GE PSC23MGMB BB Refrigerator compressor not starting

Reminds me of a comic book I used to read...



Is that a GE Service Manual ?

#208315 Whirlpool gas oven doesn't light SF378LEPS1

Posted by mrjtwright on 17 September 2011 - 09:26 AM

On this oven, when bake mode is turned on, it does nothing. No clicks or sounds. When broil is turned on, I hear 2 clicks then nothing. As I understand it has the DSI and I've found your troubleshooting article HERE.

This article sounds as if my problem is either DSI board or gas valve but I need clarification on troubleshooting. It states as follows

"First thing, check for 120vac coming out of the ERC (the electronic range control, aka “clock”) and into the new DSI board at the Bake J1-6 or Broil J1-7 harness connectors.
If you don’t have this voltage, then you need a new DSI control board==>"
Isn't this article written for someone who already has a new DSI board? If the voltage is suppose to come from the ERC but isn't present, isn't the ERC bad?
Any clarification on what to troubleshoot in this instance would be very much appreciated.
