Looking for manual for this fine piece of engineering model by GE PSS26MSWA


Initial call was a recall from another company who had replaced ice maker previously.


Customer complaint was no ice.


Upon arrival noted the evaporator fan surging which customer said he has noticed from time to time.


Freezer temp at ice maker was -11 and temp decreased as you went lower with the bottom bin at +7 degrees.


Fresh food temp was 42 degrees, and customer had commented that water from dispenser sometimes was warm.


Pulled unit out checked readings at board fan voltage fluctuating 13.4-12.4.  No signs of discoloration of diodes on board.


checked thermistors all within range.


Ice maker mold was empty. Cycled unit power to valve, but no flow of water.  Repeated and water flowed sounded like broke through ice plug in fill tube.


After testing thermistors and fan voltage noted fan was running constant high speed.




Here's what I'm thinking.  Fresh food diffuser fan not running (forgot to mention that) causing poor airflow causing low temps at ice maker and warmer temps in Fresh food??


Unit has user controls at the dispenser. Not sure how to get unit into diagnostics.


At this point I was planning on replacing diffuser assembly.


Any suggestions and manual would help.  I have a PSS manual, but all those unit are multi evap units this is a single evap.


My mind is open.


GE frozen water dispeners LSS25XSTB

29 June 2015 - 06:18 PM

Why are you not able to use the heater kit WR49x10173 on plastic liner models?


I currently have an LSS25XSTB SS which like most GE sxs's the water line freezes up in the door


I can't find any other kit to remedy the issue.  I don't like using the Mcgiver  fixes


Have used the GE kit on metal liners I presume it's due to grounding issues with the plastic.  Is there any "official" GE fixes for the plastic liner units. 


I usually just have them leave the light on which works, but had one they must have use too high wattage bulb.  Melted the chute door housing to dispenser housing.


I just got two more of these thru 3rd party warranties who will call me back each time it freezes up?

Miele Master Chef oven H398BP2

12 August 2014 - 08:10 PM

Ok I have a question on the newer wall ovens that utilize hall sensors to monitor the fan speed along with the relay boards.


The latest issue is the above mentioned H398BP2 Miele oven.  Upper oven does not heat.  The cooling fan runs I have 120 volt out of relay board.This unit has a seperate relay to switch the other leg of power which is activated by 12 vdc from the power electronic ( I would call it a relay board). I do not have 12vdc  to the relay.  Is it the board or the cooling fan sensor?


I spoke to mfr techline and was suggested to replaced the power electronic at a cost of $800.00 for part.  When I went through service manual I found this pearl of wisdom.

                                     " All oven cooling fans (including speed ovens) are equipped with a
speed sensor. This sensor is a Hall-effect semiconductor device and
its proper operation cannot always be determined using a multimeter. If
an oven refuses to heat, always remember to check the operation of
the cooling fan at all available speeds. If the electronic does not detect
a signal from the fan, the main heater relay (1K1, 2K1) will not


What ??  I asked the techline rep about this and told me he didn't know of any way to test the sensor on the fan.  I have had a couple of Thermadors where the only way I could get the unit to work was replacing relay board and the cooling fan. Tried independantly but only worked with both new components.  How do these mfr's get away with this stuff !  I have to quote my customer it's this much but it may be this much more if that doesn't work.  Makes me sound professional doesn't it.  Sorry but after 30 years of this crap when I think I've seen it all it just gets worse!


Electrolux EI23CS55GS1 won't dispense cubes

01 August 2014 - 09:39 PM

Need some input spent too much time on this thing already.


IQ control unit EI23CS55GS1 everything working except won't dispense ice.  Ran through diagnostics all features operate properly except for chute door solenoid.


I was getting some strange voltages at solenoid realy board.  I read 7 volts wher I should have had 12v and 52 vac where should have 120 v


Solenoid clean and linkage are free.  I was thinking solenoid might have been causing issue, while I was taking my 100th reading and deciding to replace solenoid assembly the solenoid suddenly activated briefly then couldn't get to do go again ??


Any experiences with this issue or input appreciated
