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.
For example: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.
Hope this helps.
