Well, great, because Aegis Appliance belongs to yours truly! I've been running it for about as long as I've been a member, and I've been in the industry for 7 years now.

In Topic: 7 year old Viking range- I think it needs a thermostat

Yep, it was just the thermostat! I didn't know that these thermostats had a break in period. It took about 30 min of preheating before it started cycling normally. Has anyone ever heard of that? Had me wondering if I misdiagnosed, but I just reminded myself that there was nothing else it could be. Customer is able to bake in his large oven like normal. Thanks for the reassurance guys!

The pump will not free spin, from what you are telling us, it seems as though your pump and motor are in good order.

Parts and video here
http://www.repaircli.../><br /><br />I was looking at the video, and when I replaced those pads I just used one arm to lift the tub assembly up and replaced each pad one at a time with my other hand.Just be careful not to let it slip or you could smash a finger or two.. or your whole hand! You could also have someone help tilt the tub assembly. But since you have already disassembled this unit from top to bottom, doing it as the video shows wont hurt you any.

When you were replacing the drive block- did you have to pull up hard on the basket to get it out? Sometimes when the basket is pulled on too hard it, it can mis-align the suspension pads on the base (Ive made this mistake before). On top of each "leg" from the base (there are 3) you will find either a brown or white pad make sure they are all there and not broken. above that, you will see a plate that the whole tube assembly rests on, and on the plate you will see shiny wear marks. make sure those marks line up the the white or brown pads below them. If they are off, then you will find that your machine will shake uncontrollably under any size load, even empty.
