It definitely sounds like you have APPLIANTOLOGY BURN-OUT.
We all get it from time to time, no matter what we do for a living. You need to take some well deserved time off, now!
Money is tight for all of us, but there are some free things you can do. Take the significant other and go hiking, camping, local museums. Something.
Just get your head off your work and have some fun. If your boss has a problem with that, tell him to f**k off. After 5 years of service, you deserve some time off. He is definitely taking advantage of you and he knows it. And he will continue to do so until you won't let him.
We're all looking out for your best interest Scott. The time is now to put an end to this unfair treatment.
If after troubleshooting and everything points to a flakey main board, as it sounds in your case, I've had random sucess with using contact cleaner (great degreaser) on the main pcb, ribbon cable end, and touchpad membrane (if accessable). Give it a good "soaking".
Allow to dry thoroughly, then test. Worth a shot before you totally condemn it.
That helps, and I did find this lg pretty easy using the wild card. The kitchen aid, i found a manual, but not right models.. there are so many models and changes it still makes my head spin..lol.. The tip on searching with google while staying on site that I need to learn. I have several others i am searching for and I was able to find them. Thanks for your help and explaining how to better search. I also have to figure out a good system to file them in , on computer.. This manual covers mod#s, publication #, this model was in production at about 2008- 20010.. I'm not that good at admin, file organization, I have to push myself, and think harder, not a natural talent.. getting better and need a mentor, or good advice here.
I get on the computer and people ask me what did I get done today, fixed.. I say nothing but I have researched, how to fix them, where to get the parts, and ran ads to sell what I have in stock.. but made no cash today. I bought 3 stoves, 4 friges and 7 washers and dryers, so far have 4 fixed (stove, three dryers)
Trying to load my computer for the next couple of days of battle and get parts ordered. The friges if I can fix them will make good money, but I'm still learning a whole bunch on them..
curjones, your title to this thread is EXACTLY how I do it.
LG Refrigerator LFC255776SB
LG = Manufacturer
Refrigerator = Type appliance
LFC255776SB = Model number
Customer calls, gives you the above 3 words and within a few seconds, you will be able to see if you have the service material in your library.
Consistency is the key here. Do NOT mix them up. It is second nature now when I download a weeks worth of material.
Manufacturer FIRST. Type appliance SECOND. Model # THIRD. Each and every time. Very easy searching once you get this system down.
My ENTIRE library (close to a couple thousand manuals, tech sheets, service bulletins, pictures, videos etc) is organized this way. Sort them by pdf, jpeg, power point, word docs, videos also. Takes a little time, but well worth the effort.
Are they the Craftsman set? The KD set does not have the black grips on them, just the red grips. I bought the KD set because I did not see them for sale at the local Sears anymore. And I use them alot.
Let me look in my files and I'll post where I bought them later tonight.
Gonna be somewhat of a busy day today..... it's my youngest son's 14th birthday. Awesome kid !!!!!
great video as usual. I had a bad board last week and a dead 9 volt battery. Unlike the one in your video, my dispenser board was still working so out of necessity I finally tried the "voltage stealing" technique I saw in training. I used the + and - pins for the dispenser at the j4 connector like you used the 9 volt battery. Worked like a charm
Would this not work also?

One of the reasons 1 out of ten small businesses fail is simply because the self employed sector is the sector of hard work.
they fail because of financial exhaustion or Physical exhaustion or both.
Another main (big-big) reason is that you don't charge enough for your services. Do not rely just on the "bottom feeders". You want to increase your bottom line? Raise your rates. Use common sense to find your target rate. This strategy works anywhere.
