#303054 Jenn Air gas range JGS8850BDS re-ignition burner problem

Posted by JJ Surfer on 11 September 2014 - 01:57 AM

The igniter also becomes the flame sensor. The flame grounds out the circuit so the ignition module stops sending high voltage to the igniters. The burner switch is closed on any heat setting, there is not a "light" position. It sounds like the ignition module is failing
The editing is more complex on re-ignitions. Each switch and igniter wire has it's own position on the spark module


#302992 duet dryer not heat ggw9250pw1

Check the thermistor. Do the resistance values of the thermistor match the tech sheet? The user interface would be the last thing to cause this issue.


#302891 rtw4640yq1 roper fills washes will not drain or spin

Posted by JJ Surfer on 09 September 2014 - 06:16 AM

Try unplugging loads from the board, motor, lid switch etc and try the diagnostic mode again. If it still won't go into diagnostics then you have a bad control board.


#302889 Whirlpool Duet #wfw8410sw02 - wacky cycles, fills-drains no tumble, shuts dow...

Posted by JJ Surfer on 09 September 2014 - 05:59 AM

If your sure pressure switch hose is not the problem I would replaced the pressure switch.


#302437 Fridgidaire ATF6000ES1 won't drain/wash/spin

Posted by JJ Surfer on 03 September 2014 - 01:03 AM

Check the voltage right at the pump. It should have have 120 volts during the drain and spin. When it stops draining is there still voltage?


#302172 Bosch Dishwasher arm not spinning (SHE33N02uc/53)

Posted by JJ Surfer on 30 August 2014 - 12:16 AM

Check if the impeller is clogged. Remove the filter screens and check with a mirror and flashlight. Long skinny needle nose pliers can work to remove seeds, paper and etc. removing the whole pump is a lot more work.


#301519 Whirlpool WTW5700XW0 temperature problem

Posted by JJ Surfer on 21 August 2014 - 01:35 AM

Get the tech sheet! It's inside the cabinet on the front. There's a trick to lifting the top. There are 2 1/4 inch screws that hold the lid to the hinge like brackets. There is one more screw that holds a cover. After removing these you can move the lid slightly forward and up and then back and it is released. Put it in diagnostic mode(turn main knob right left right right right left right) or something like that and then you can put it into manual test. This way you can test each component and check for error codes. You can test cold valve, hot etc. if cold valve works it cold be the thermistor (telling the control the wrong temps) or it could be the control. The tech manual has steps to help you diagnose all those.


#301512 Kenmore Refrigerator 106.51183113

If this is like the one I worked on today in diagnostic step 15 it shows the status of the ice bin...01 full or missing or 02 empty.


#268926 dryer drum wont turn without help

Posted by JJ Surfer on 21 September 2013 - 12:35 AM

I'm betting its a 3 wire plug with a bad ground/neutral. A good test is to wire L1 and the neutral to a 110 outlet and you should be able to run the motor. This way you can show the customer they need an electrician


#268923 Whirlpool Cabrio Electric Dryer overheating

Posted by JJ Surfer on 20 September 2013 - 11:44 PM

You should change the element, unless your 100% sure your adjustments will hold up to years of vibration


#268801 Whirlpool Duet Gas Dryer Motor Won't Run - please help

Posted by JJ Surfer on 20 September 2013 - 01:40 AM

Jump the motor start relay, does the motor run? See motor circuit diagrams p9-2 to p9-1.


#266898 Whirlpool 9750 Won't fill tub

Posted by JJ Surfer on 03 September 2013 - 10:28 AM

I'm not convinced the pressure switch is working properly. That particular switch has a high failure rate. This is a good time to take advantage of repair clinic 365 day return policy http://www.repaircli...ber=WFW9750WW00


#266859 Kenmore Dryer Thermal Fuse On Element Housing

Posted by JJ Surfer on 03 September 2013 - 02:28 AM

If you have replaced the hi limit kit repeatedly the spade connectors might be loose this, could be creating heat as mica bay pointed out. You want to verify that the dryer is cycling on the operating thermostat by putting your meter leads on both sides of the thermostat. When the dryer is heating there should be 0 volts, when it stops heating there should be 220-240volts. If not then it is cycling on the high limit.


#266858 Kenmore Dryer Thermal Fuse On Element Housing

Posted by JJ Surfer on 03 September 2013 - 02:23 AM

What about the wiring? Is it good and tight? Any burnt marks on the female connectors? Loose connections can cause resistance ie extra heat at that spot.


#266855 Samsung side by side fridge model RS261rdms has no power

Posted by JJ Surfer on 03 September 2013 - 12:23 AM

Main board, fuse on main control might be out. Check board in back, make sure 120volts is getting to board. If there is a fuse ohm it out.
