#296593 Harper Wyman Spark Module 6540 - Stop the Sparking!

Posted by Spannerwrench on 18 June 2014 - 05:21 PM

You need to start swapping the wires on the igniters until it fixes it. Basically it's not wired properly.


#296584 What the hell is wrong with the dishwasher engineers these days?

Posted by Spannerwrench on 18 June 2014 - 03:42 PM

I liked the original Fisher Paykel dishdrawers. Easy to diagnose and repair, and generated LOT$ of COD service calls. The later "enhancements"......Feh. I'm still having nightmares about the F9.

Ya, that F9 is a pain, it can be pretty much anything. I've had a few of them and each time it's a different component and the only way to find it, at least the easiest is to pull out the full service manual and ohm out every single component from the board.

#296047 Bosch Dishwasher SHU43C06UC / 14 not evacuating water properly

Posted by Spannerwrench on 09 June 2014 - 07:03 PM

Make sure that there's a high loop installed n the drain line. That's not much water so it could be flowing back after it drains, that little check flap won't stop the water if there's no high loop.

Try turning the impeller in the wash motor while it's pulled, if at first there is quite a bit if resistance that us most likely the problem. If that works and it reoccurs frequently then you need to replace the motor, very $$$.

#294985 GE Monogram Fridge ZISS420DXSS works too good!

Posted by Spannerwrench on 30 May 2014 - 12:44 PM

If you ran the on board diagnostics it will not give you a definitive answer if the thermistors are good or bad. You would need to actually take some resistance measurements at the control to verify that the thermistors are good.


#293458 Don't buy a new non-resetable thermal limiter - FP OD302 oven

Posted by Spannerwrench on 12 May 2014 - 05:34 PM

If it tripped. It tripped for a reason, that's why in certain situations they use non-resettable bi-metals. They don't want someone to just pushing the reset button without addressing the problem.

Also, the resettable bi-metals wear after getting reset from thermal fatigue and arcing of the contacts and may not respond properly in the future.

And, also, the are bound by UL to use certain types of safety thermostats in certain places.

Also, again, no manufacturer wants to put money in the pockets of the repair guy. If anything, an expensive brand like FnP wants you to have a good experience with their product that way when you need a new one, for whatever reason, you purchase another one of theirs.

I'm not critiquing your work, plenty of ingenuity.


#292251 Kenmore (Electrolux) Electric Range with Induction Cooktop 790.48003500 - Rep...

Posted by Spannerwrench on 29 April 2014 - 07:07 PM

I've done a few if those, PITA, but none COD..

They're just not worth fixing unless you get into replacing individual components in the board.


#292243 EI27EW45KW3 electrolux double wall oven not heating correctly

Posted by Spannerwrench on 29 April 2014 - 06:43 PM

Advise the customer on proper preheating of the oven, when it dings doesn't mean it's dong.

#291862 tablet for service manuals - advice

Posted by Spannerwrench on 26 April 2014 - 11:17 AM

I store everything in Dropbox and for every file I store I create a note for it in Evernote giving publication number, model numbers, a description of the file and I link to the Dropbox location. I also add any pertinent information I need to add that document. For instance I see a sevice pointer may help on more models than just what's listed in the pointer, so I add that.

Actually when I see a service manual request on either my iPhone or iPad all I do is search Evernote and copy the note and paste it giving the link to the file on Dropbox. I do usually search for the Publucatiin first in the downloads section before replying though.
I've tried good Reader and a lot of other document apps and so far this has worked out the best, one for storage one for searching.
I also share a read only version of Evernote with all of my techs that they can't add to or delete. But they have a folder they can put new notes into and I'll add to them and file where they need to go.


#291777 Electrolux dryer loud buzzing from motor Model EIMED60JiW0

Posted by Spannerwrench on 25 April 2014 - 03:01 PM

It's not the motor making the noise, even though it sounds like it.  It's actually the Blower wheel expanding and hitting the housing.

I've ran into this a few time myself.

Here's a Service Pointer for the problem.

#291774 ULine CLR2160 won't start clean mode

Posted by Spannerwrench on 25 April 2014 - 02:42 PM

The User Interface is very touchy on those models.  The newer models have been redesined and are much better.  Every time I work on one of these style units with that user interface I say quite a few vulgar words in my head (and sometimes out loud) while trying to get them in diagnostics.  If you keep trying it, eventually if you follow PDuff's instructions you get it working.
