#264606 sub-zero vacuum condenser light, compressor always on

Posted by Spannerwrench on 13 August 2013 - 02:18 PM

If it is a sealed system leak, how easy is this to positively diagnose, i.e. what is involved? Is it possible for a sealed system leak to run this way for a year without further degradation? It's been running this way for at least 12 months.


In the attached photo I have a picture of a leaky evaporator, not the frost pattern, but the little dimples in the coil that are usually obvious. A 15 year old SubZero is definitely worth paying a professional to replace the evaporator, it's not something a homeowner can do on his/her own.

Replace the motor.


#264237 SxS Whirlpool compressor really hot / model ed56hgxmb00/

Posted by Spannerwrench on 09 August 2013 - 02:04 PM

It has a start capacitor which can burn up the compressor and also provides no overload protection for it.

#264090 Frigidaire Refrigerator Moisture Collecting In Bottom Of Fresh Food

Posted by Spannerwrench on 08 August 2013 - 11:27 AM

If it's leaking water from the ice room, then you most likely need to replace the seal kit. Follow the instructions that come with the kit, failure to install properly will cause a leak.

Clean the ice room evaporator drain as well.

There's a good reason this ice maker wasn't in production long.
I'd like to find the engineer who came up with it and stick bamboo slits up his/her toenails!


#263784 icemaker won't stop filling. water overflows, no ice.

Posted by Spannerwrench on 06 August 2013 - 03:23 PM

Turn the water back on and unplug the frig and see if the water still flows.

Test for voltage to the compressor when it turns off to eliminate the control, test current draw from the compressor to eliminate as bad compressor. If both tests are good, replace the relay and overload.


#263774 LG Combo Washer/dryer model WM3677HW not drying

Posted by Spannerwrench on 06 August 2013 - 02:10 PM

Taken from the training manual, pretty basic operation.

The dryer portion of the COMBO is a condenser type dryer. It works on the
principal that water condenses on a cool surface, similar to moisture collecting on
a cold drink on a hot and humid summer day. A fan circulates air through the
warming duct, drum, and condenser and over and over. The air is warmed
because warmer air holds more moisture than cooler air and the heat causes
more of the water to be evaporated form the laundry. The warm, moist air is
directed through the condensing duct, which is cooled by a spray of cold water.
This difference in temperature causes the moisture to precipitate in the
condenser, where it and the cooling water are exhausted by the drain pump. The
air, now dry, is passed over the warming element and through the laundry again
as the process repeats itself. Because the air is recycled instead of exhausted, a
vent and lint filter are not necessary for this type dryer.

Those Viking thermostats get off calibration quite frequently, sometimes you can just keep adjusting them other times you need to replace them.


#263301 Kitchenaid fridge. KBRC36FKS02. Sporadic temp problems

Posted by Spannerwrench on 02 August 2013 - 06:38 PM

Make absolutely sure nothing is blocking the doors from closing, 1/4" to 3/8" is not caused by bad gaskets. I have been out behind many services who have replaced gaskets, hinges, cams and even door finally to give up. Every time something has been blocking the doors.
Examples of what I've seen.
Door bins not in the correct location.
Shelves not fully in place.
Cans or food packages blocking the shelves from going back all the way.
Air fresheners, that hang from a suction cup, installed to where the door liner hits it on the hinge side.

Very rare, but I have seen a few unit installed so badly that one of the rear corners wasn't even touching the ground. So after sitting for a few years the entire box twisted and caused huge gaps in the doors.
