#313786 bosch SHY66C02UC/14 - diagnostic challenge - is it the control board?

Posted by Spannerwrench on 19 February 2015 - 08:26 PM

Sounds like a bad control as mentioned, use the first method you mentioned to enter diagnostics and let it run while measuring current draw.  Report back the information.

#313699 Kenmore refrigerator 106.8536780 garage kit available?

Posted by Spannerwrench on 18 February 2015 - 05:25 PM

The kit is for him or her to buy a Gladiator :) I only know of Frigidaire having any kind of kit like that.


The only reason that Frigidaire has a kit, for both a hot and cold garage, is because they sell such cheap x-top units that everyone thinks they can use it for a garage refrigerator.  They still don't guarantee the unit if it's installed in a garage and the kits are only sold as accessories.

No kit for this one.

#313520 Thermador SCD272TW/01 Upper oven heats up slowly

Posted by Spannerwrench on 16 February 2015 - 02:03 PM

What do you mean it looks like it's getting full voltage, unless there's some magic method to sing voltage, then the only way is to put a meter on it and check.  Either it's not getting full voltage or the element is becoming weak.  

#313493 DCS cooktop explodes

Posted by Spannerwrench on 16 February 2015 - 06:06 AM

DCS uses a small separate orifice for the simmer, I've seen them partially clogged causing this to happen.

Here's a link to the service pointer that was mentioned for the kit that the Wolf mentioned above.  I didn't respond earlier because I didn't see a model number, and I don't look at the tags.

#313267 Frigidare Wall Oven M#: PLEB30S9DCA - No Heat / Fried Diode

Posted by Spannerwrench on 12 February 2015 - 08:05 PM

You explained it very well, but I think it may be a little confusing..

It's not receiving half the voltage or it would be a 60 VAC element correct.  But in reality it's receiving voltage only half of the time.  Every second there would be current flow 30 times instead of 60 times.

Correct me if I'm wrong, won't bother me a bit. 


It's still half, just looked at differently.

#313255 Got my AllDolly

Posted by Spannerwrench on 12 February 2015 - 07:00 PM

The vmw is replacing the cabrio. The cabrio line has a lot of issues.

The VMW has it's own problems as, but they're money makers.

#313249 Subzero 532 cooling fine but the compressor runs all the time and is very hot

Posted by Spannerwrench on 12 February 2015 - 06:35 PM

You may simply have a condenser fan motor that isn't spinning at full speed or condenser that is completely clogged. I've had them where they need to be blown out with nitrogen they're so clogged.  

#313247 Got my AllDolly

Posted by Spannerwrench on 12 February 2015 - 06:29 PM

I use to unstack them for a long time, started working for my Dad when I was a kid and did up until I hit about 35, I realize now that I shouldn't have done it for nearly as long as I did, if even at all.  I use the All-Dolly for ovens and dryers, I took the side panel off of a scrap duet dryer, mounted angle iron onto into with 4 extra long bolts, and the bolts are located so that they insert into the top of the dolly to keep it from shifting, makes a nice platform to slide a dryer onto while I work on the washer.  (standard height dolly)  As for working on the dryer, I leave in place and simply use a small step ladder to work on it, I don't see the need to drop it to the ground.  


As for Jay's tool I love it and will probably get it, whether I actually have a need for it I don't know.  But. I'm a tool junky, and definitely love American made quality tools like this is.  I'll be honest, my company has 8 techs have only installed about 20 of those bearing kits.  It would be nice if you could design your own puller for the them as well and sell in a complete kit.  I've also used the Fisher & Paykel bearing kit for job and it work just as well a lot of people aren't aware of that part.  

Out of the 20 or so that we've done the only one that was stuck was the first one done, and it was me who had it and it was in a multi-million dollar house.  I wish I had that tool back then, but it was't around yet.

We don't see them much any more.  What we see now is the VMW models where you replace the entire basket drive when it gets noisy.  Almost all of them are a pain in the a$$ to separate.  I'll probably get the tool just to add to my arsenal..

#313135 Best (brand) range hood WT32I422SB (or possibly 5B) issue

Posted by Spannerwrench on 10 February 2015 - 03:48 PM

Here's the wiring diagram, although I don't think you need to stick a different thermal sensor on that model,  I believe it's built into the control.  I've seen that on a few Best (Broan) hoods before, sometimes they would just turn on in the middle of the night.

Refrigerator Main Control Board Replacement and Cutting J1 pin 2.

Questions are often asked about cutting the wire in J1 pin 2 when replacing the main control

board on certain models of refrigerators. There is only one situation that requires the wire to be


If the refrigerator main board is mounted vertically, AND there are wires in both

pin 1 and pin 2 of J1, Cut the wire in J1 pin 2.

Note: When cutting the wire, leave enough wire to reconnect if necessary!

• There are no other situations that require J1 pin 2 to be cut.

• Many main boards look alike, always check the part number in IPC before installing.
