In Topic: Replacing ignitor on GE profile range jgb920sec4ss

11 March 2013 - 07:40 PM

I know its a gas stove but do remember to unplug it. That ignitor does rely on electricity to heat it up and sometimes you can forget that.


I know this from personal experience....heh 

In Topic: Windows 8: Is it Great?

16 February 2013 - 09:26 AM

Imo, 8 is a waste of money. On desktops, as long as we have mice, touch will be a gimmick at best, except for specialized drawing apps. I can't imagine keeping your arm strectched out over the desk while browsing. Thats really the only feature 8 has over 7, Even when using just the standard interface 8 is more confusing than 7.

Oh they have touch wireless mouse too now to go with your touch everything else. I just started using Win 7 and it will be a long time before I go with touch stuff. I dont even own a cell phone so touch screen is no big deal to me.

I really hated to give up WinXP that I purchased in 2002 and didnt install till 2007 because I liked Win2000 too much.  LOL

In Topic: Maytag Dependable Care Dryer -- noisy and longer drying times

15 February 2013 - 08:54 PM

Auto Dry is not the same as Electronic Dryness Control. Auto Dry uses a temperature sensor to advance the timer where Electronic Dryness Control uses the moisture contacts like you ordered coupled with a charge capacitor on an electronic control board. Both technologies date well back to the early 60s.

Open the door, stick your head in the dryer facing down. Should be on the front bulkhead, usually on the right. It senses by clothes touching it, and when clothes are wet it discharges the electrical field charge across its polls. I hope that description is clear enough.

In Topic: Gas cook top; only one burner sparking; Frigidaire FGC3X4XFSA

10 February 2013 - 09:43 PM

This is probably not related but I thought I would throw it in here. I recently decided to scrub the buildup off my gas burners with oven cleaner and soapy water. I got them so wet that three of them would no longer spark. I got a toothbrush and rinsed the spark tip off with fresh water and used a can of pressurized air from my computer room to blow out the excess water. When they dried they started sparking just fine again.
