#313188 Bottom Freezer Problem

Posted by mastertech011 on 11 February 2015 - 09:29 PM

Thanks again for your help Bryan. I got to it after dinner since the folks at appliance parts pro got the part to me lightning fast. I just used hand tools so it took me a couple hours in our cramped kitchen but all went very well. Got the inner panel pulled and everything thawed out and water and ice removed, then got the p trap installed in short order thanks to your tips.


Much appreciated and to those who helped with a couple videos I found from this site on the repair.

#248566 Maytag Dependable Care Dryer -- noisy and longer drying times

Posted by mastertech011 on 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.

#248560 Maytag Dependable Care Dryer -- noisy and longer drying times

Posted by mastertech011 on 15 February 2013 - 07:02 PM

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.

#248229 Gas cook top; only one burner sparking; Frigidaire FGC3X4XFSA

Posted by mastertech011 on 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.

#247494 Maytag Neptune MDG7500AWW Dryer Control Board

Posted by mastertech011 on 31 January 2013 - 06:35 PM

Hello, I dont come here to bug you too often but I have a quick question regards to a "new" control board I purchased off Ebay (Yeah I know :( )  I purchased this board from Ebay and when recieved I could see the chicken scratches on the pins on the relays where you could see it had been at least installed. I got it for about 60 percent off the cheap price on the net so I could have forgiven that if they just installed it and it didnt fix the problem with the machine they were trying to fix and put it back in the box, but I installed it into my machine to see if it was used and put it into service mode and I saw the cycle count was 211. So it was used for a short time it appears, though 211 loads would not have been a long time, but why was it removed after this amount of time. So I check for codes set in memory and it says Code 6  Non-Vol.mem.err  


That sounds pretty serious if it is a permanent error but I wanted to get your opinion. Should I send it back and get my money back or try to clear the codes and run it through a cycle in my machine? I cant find a copy of the 27 inch dryer repair manual for the Maytag Neptune MDG7500AWW anymore in the stash so I dont even know what that code represents.




#71155 Staber versus ?

If it were me I would let her make the final choice after you make your recommendations and reasons why.  Living in peace is sometimes more preferrable than to be a lonely King.

She will be happy for awhile if she chooses the pretty machine and wont hold you to blame when it doesnt perform exactly as her dreams led her to believe.

The first time your mower wont start she is going to say I told you so! Dont let her have that right to everything you own.. heh!
