In Topic: Cabrio inner basket removal tool

Yesterday, 09:58 PM

I see very few & about half of my clients opt for a new machine after quoting the book price.    Those that I have replaced I use PB blaster which is an excellent solvent It has not been that time consuming getting the tub off (for me anyway).


In purchasing a new tool I have criterion that must be passed.  

  •  Am I going to make money or break even on the job I initially going to use it on.  
  •  Do I see in the future a lot of jobs needing that tool whereas I can make a profit. Example is the tool for the Maytag Neptune bearing replacement tool.  When is the last time you replaced one of those bearings.
  •  Is it going to pass my wife's scrutiny for need of this tool.  She is co owner

Sorry Jay I can not justify the expense of a tool used for only one brand of machine that I see as not in production any more.   I am saving that $200 for purchasing an 'ALL Dolly' which I would use more often in my business.   Best of luck in sales to others that see more Cabrio direct drives.  It looks like a high quality tool, but not for me at this point in time.


Well I made 2 back to back Cabrio service calls last week.  One is a Sd code where I had hell removing the agitator.  I decided to call Jay & have him send me one of his Jay tools.  The 2nd Cabrio has a roaring bearing (listened over the phone) where I gave a quote & am waiting for their reply in the next day or two.  The last Cabrio I did a bearing Job was 4 months ago & I spent a good 30 minutes wresting the tub.    I chose the easier route this time,  maybe I will get lucky & start seeing more of these units.   


By the way Jay was very courteous & pleasant the 2 times I have talked to him first conversation was months ago, i tried to persuade him to join our Appliantology Voxer group.   This second time    I called Friday afternoon to purchase the tool  & he had it shipped Saturday morning.   That in itself is a good value to me.    I will update when jobs are completed.

Thank you Budget, just the ticket.   That big GE manual stash, is it located in the download section?    I searched the download & forun section using different search terms & could not find anything.   I found else on google is the F-C code is a problem with these WH's  where the factory is changing out evaps & dryers.

In Topic: Bosch dishwasher SHE43F15UC-60

17 December 2014 - 11:33 PM

2 to 3 hours in labor saved not to mention the cost of  replacement sump assembly because this capacitor    Attached File  1-20141211_121019.jpg   14.35KB   0 downloads     failed.  


By purchasing this capacitor & using epoxy to glue a bolt to it I spent about fifteen minutes total time & $6.00 for the capacitor    Attached File  1-20141217_081037.jpg   15.47KB   0 downloads    to effectuate a repair & make a client very happy.    I would have loved to use an original replacement part,  but in this case it was cost prohibitive. 


The Bosch dishwasher is running like new with no one the wiser other than client & me.
