Topics I've Started


18 October 2014 - 04:03 PM

Got a call from a client about a problem with icemaker on AMANA SxS fridge. I think this is a fridge made by DAEWOO. Client lives quite far away and I want to go there well prepaired. Complaint is that when he forces a harvest the tray turnes 180 degrees put does not release the ice cubes.I am familiar with regalur AMANA ice makers' regular or modular type but know very little about flextray machines.
My logic however says that when it turns the tray 180 degrees some pin on the mold must hit the body while the motor is still turning or the mold must hit a stopper on the body and cause the flexing of the tray to release the cubes. Are there any repair procedures for these machine or is it better to replace the whole unit. Any help appreciated.

Liebherr bottom mount fridge

02 June 2014 - 03:52 PM

Hi I am dealing with a Liebherr   ICN  3056 fridge. Can anybody provide me with a service manual for

this fridge or for a similar model. Have to know about forced defrost, thermistor values and freezer and freshfood compartment fan motors and testmode procedures. I donot know if it has one or more evaporators because this monster is built in a cupboard and if I can help it I do not want to pull it out.

All help appreciated.

forced derost GE SBS model TFG28PRDWW

17 April 2014 - 05:01 PM

Working on a GE SBS ( TFG28PRDWW   220 VOLTS Model). The evaporator was totally iced over.Obvious a defrost

problem.Can anybody tell me how to initiate a forced defrost on this model and find me a schematic diagram. Heaters checked OK and 1 defrost-thermostat was faulty so replaced it. Did a total manual defrost but would be happier if I know for sure that the ADC card is OK. Any help appreciated.

I'm dealing for a customer with a WHITE WESTINGHOUSE fridge/freezer (RTD 18WWCW5 ser: BA 81817611) this is probably an export model made by White Consolidated Ind in Cleveland Ohio.

The original complaint was that vegetables were freezing in the food compartment probably because the thermostat was stuck and the compressor running  all the time. I bypassed the thermostat and connected the fridge with a timer socket  running 45 min on 30 minutes off and was good for 3 weeks.( I did this because I knew it would take a long time to get a new thermostat) Now the evaporator was icing over and I went over twice in a month to do a manual defrost. Both times when I pressed the defrost button on the card it defrosted, so heater + defrost stop OK.The second time I put the original thermostat back in because it operated OK when I sprayed with liquid freon and I also gently tapped the relay on the ADC-card.The fridge was fine for a month and now the thermostat is stuck once more,Customer put timer back in socket and now there is a defrost problem again. Is there a relation between thermostat and ADC card. I finally got the new thermostat but I am hesitating to put it in because if there still is a defrost problem once I have opened the  thermostat I can not return it!!

Here are my questions:

1. What controls the defrost frequency on this ADC-card(thermostat,light in food compartment  or other)

2.Can I replace the ADC-card with a regular mechanical defrost timer(25 min every 6 hours) or an SUPCO defrost timer with adjustable time and defrost frequency

3. Is there a logic explanation that there is a defrost-problem ever time the thermostat is stuck.
