In Topic: commercial appliance techs - advice requested

14 June 2013 - 05:18 PM

I am a commercial service tech by employment and do residential on my own time. I got started in the industry as residential with GE then moved to a commercial only company. I love the money commercial pays and it is a good fit for me. However, residential is much easier in my opinion. Commercial pays better because the repairs are so much more expensive. People repair $20K dollar ovens and $400K dishwasher, they don't blink at a $1K repair. I average 122 completed calls per month with an average of $44K billed. Residential..... well I rarely right a $1k bill without the customer gasping for air.

Did you take a reading for the gas pressure? what is it set at versus what should it be? If it lights and goes out, does it go out because the gas valve closes? what was the microamp reading on the flame sensor? Over-gassing an appliance only covers up an issue instead of rectifiying the problem, so it is important to make sure that low gas pressure was actually the problem.
