Looking for a manual to battle this beast.  Appears Whirlpool has moved away from the jazz board for this machine.  Always throws you off your game a little bit when ya battle a new beast.... just a little.

In this blog post by the Samurai, http://appliantology...g-in-albany-ny/, you can see that the motor pulley is clearly not made of plastic.  Does anyone know of the part number for the metal motor pulley?

We have only viewed plastic pulleys in the field. Please tell me this wasn't a one time thing for training purposes only.  :thanks:



West Bend Poppery model 5459

Alrighty. So I am in need of the fan motor for this little popper. I can't find a good look up. Just wondering if anyone had any ideas.

Making a coffe roaster out of it. This is like the direct drives of poppers. Better than anything on the market.
Here are a few pictures. http://i1316.photobu...zps2cd062dd.jpg



Any thing helps. Thanks

Whirlpool Iceball

So, We went out on a whirlpool bottom freezer (Amana design?), the one with the Jazz board.  (model number is in the paperwork).  The drain tube was clogged, water leaking onto floor.


My question.  What causes the ice ball to form, around the cap tube?  twas about this size of a MLB baseball.  Is this the beginning of a defrost system issue?  i.e., compressor running while defrost is doing its thing.


The rest of the eval coils were clear.  Evap fan was strong, no signs of airflow issues.

We have a customer saying they are getting an LE Error code.  The owner's manual state:

 Overload in motor---- Resart the cycle after 30 minutes, if LE is not released, call for service.  



1.)  How do you test the motor other than ohming out the windings, ad checking for a ground fault?

2.) What other pesky problems should we be looking for that would also cause this error code.  


Has anyone noticed a pattern/common problems on this machine?
