#295114 Thermal Fuse Blown on Maytag Performa Model # PYE2300AYW

Posted by jumptrout on 01 June 2014 - 07:48 AM

Make sure the thermal fuse terminals are not in contact with the thermal fuse mounting bracket once it is installed.

#280154 Agi-Tamer tool Wanted

Posted by jumptrout on 05 January 2014 - 09:05 AM

Early 90's I used the bicycle inner tube method.

I did not cut it.

Used it whole.

Went under agitator fine.

I used my nitrogen tank to inflate it.

If you leave it whole,roll the tube inside out to get to the valve stem easier.

#279735 GE Fridge - FS22SISSS - Diagnosis Help Needed Please

Posted by jumptrout on 02 January 2014 - 08:46 AM

Use a clamp on amp meter at the compressor to verify amp draw.

Feel the refrigerant lines on each side of the filter drier while the unit is running.

Is it cool/cold going in and warmer coming out into the fridge?

Most likely the rear drum bearing and support.

#279348 Manitowic Harvest Issues - Senses harvest too soon

Posted by jumptrout on 29 December 2013 - 03:54 PM

The manual as well as Manitowoc Techl8ine will tell you that...........if the probe is unplugged and the machine stays in freeze mode the probe is bad.

With the probe unplugged and the machine enters harvest the board is bad.

The Manitowoc site also has a *WARNING* posted to be wary of counterfeit parts on the recent market.

#278412 No neutral drain sometimes

Posted by jumptrout on 20 December 2013 - 07:45 AM

A blocked or partially blocked drain pump will cause this also.

#278098 Gas Dryer Connector Extension Okay?

Posted by jumptrout on 18 December 2013 - 07:21 AM

You should remove the flex line and install a gas stop cock.

Then put the flex on the stop.

If there are no nicks in the fitting you simply have to tighten the fitting more.

#277823 Gas Dryer Connector Extension Okay?

Posted by jumptrout on 16 December 2013 - 07:29 PM

What material is the existing gas stub out?
Black iron?

A 90 degree fitting and a solid pipe 8 feet long would put you in range of your 60" connector and a new shutoff.

Be sure and strap it to the wall every 3 feet.

#277296 WP Gas dryer LG7681XSW0 sputtering and whistling

Posted by jumptrout on 11 December 2013 - 05:55 PM

Air flow and air shutter issue.

#276775 Payne Heat Pump - PH13NR060-E - No Hot Air

Posted by jumptrout on 07 December 2013 - 10:01 PM

To test the reversing valve,run the unit in COOL.

Disconnect the orange wire at the condensing unit and listen for the R/V to reverse.

If it does not reverse,make and break the orange wire several times until it does reverse.

Then leave the orange disconnected while you reset the thermostat for heat.

Then reconnect the orange wire.

#276774 Payne Heat Pump - PH13NR060-E - No Hot Air

Posted by jumptrout on 07 December 2013 - 09:55 PM

The unit utilizes more refrigerant at higher pressures in heat mode.

Again,could be refrigerant level,could be a bad pressure switch.

How old is this system?
Any history of refrigerant leaks?

#276755 Help with gas wood stove

Posted by jumptrout on 07 December 2013 - 05:55 PM

First,I would remove the burner and thoroughly clean it out.

If the problem persist,I would lightly tap the gas valve on a re-light attempt to see if more gas ios introduced.

If more gas is supplied,I would replace the gas valve.

Is there a drip leg on the incoming gas supply?

#276752 Payne Heat Pump - PH13NR060-E - No Hot Air

Posted by jumptrout on 07 December 2013 - 05:48 PM

Yes,could be low on refrigerant or a bad pressure switch.

Without knowing the pressure,it would not be advisable to bypass the pressure switch.

#276705 F3 = FMe

Posted by jumptrout on 07 December 2013 - 10:55 AM

Most likely a bad oven sensor.

Should read 1100 ohms at room temperature.

#276699 Samsung Dryer DV448AEP/XXA

Posted by jumptrout on 07 December 2013 - 09:52 AM

Could be loose connections.

Remove the top panel to access the control board and switches.(2 screws in the rear.)

Disconnect,then reconnect the switches and control board.

Unplug the dryer to do this.
