Self clean makes me more money then any other appliance feature, period.

Sometimes, after making sure the air dome is clear and there's no leaks, you can re-calibrate the pressure sensor and all is well. Thats only worked for me once however. Most often the pressure sensor has failed and your looking at replacing that entire control. Also, it seems like it'll give you the F1 if you don't have exactly the right amount of air in that air dome. Even with new boards that work fine.

#254231 Frigidaire Dishwasher (Cdn. Model BF44P1) Leaking From on Top

Posted by RussTech on 09 May 2013 - 01:41 PM

Ive seen these units leak from the back top and the top. Nothing really secures the manifold aside from molded fittings. Sometimes the top of the tub will bow in making the the fittings loose and leaking water. Try pushing the top of the tub up. Really though, you just need to pull it and run it outside the cabinetry. That will give you all the answers to all of your mysteries.

Pull the unit and get a visual. Unless its tiled in it cant be that hard.

Check for correct voltages at MCU. Check for continuity on mcu wiring harness. Check windings on the motor. 

Id send back Primary control. Get a good visual on the MCU. Disconnect all wires and open her up. I bet its blown a cap. 

#252624 Im DUMB and need help on Kitchenaid Microwave khms2040wss-0

Edit: After a lot of thought I really think cactus bob has it right. If you don't understand how to work on microwaves, please don't. Its incredibly dangerous. 

#252454 GE Prodigy washer Noisy during spin

Posted by RussTech on 16 April 2013 - 07:08 PM

Well, I found out. That hub nut is a bitch to remove no matter how you get at it. The bearing that you have to buy the outer tub to obtain, is just a metal sleeve. The grinding noise was coming from the lower transmission bearing. The transmission pulley bearing. Cant purchase it. Have to buy the entire gearcase which retails out at 300 bucks. I put together a new bid on just replacing the transmission and of course my customer declined. I don't recommend anyone ever attempt to remove the hub nut or the outer tub.


Edit: Even though I am a proud owner of a BRAND NEW GE OUTER TUB, I will condemn this symptom instantly in the future. I recommend you do the same.

Originally, it was a burnt pin on the compressor relay. Dead box. Also, it sure did turn out to be the wire on the J1 connector pin 2. Clipped the wire, plugged her in, and she was blasting cold air through the damper into the FF side. Thanks fellas. 

#239503 Where to find parts that are "No Longer Available"

Posted by RussTech on 20 September 2012 - 01:57 PM

I've recently had a barrage of wpl and kitchen aid refrigerator boards go NLA on me. Luckily I save all my circuit boards so Ive been able to send a bunch in for rebuild preemptively. Im trying my hardest to keep customers from having to wait 2 weeks with a dead reefer. This situation is only going to get worse.

A lot of NLA Circuit boards can be rebuilt. Check out corecentric and fixyourboard.com
