#278456 KitchenAid m#KSSC48FMS01 yellowed plastic at door jamb, cracked

Posted by Spannerwrench on 20 December 2013 - 04:28 PM

Mullion liner tape kit W10204863 It's a pricey piece of tape, but it works.
Could be an intermittent condenser fan motor as well causing it if the condenser is clean. Here's the Service pointer for that problem.

#278450 Refrigerator compressor activates fan

Posted by Spannerwrench on 20 December 2013 - 03:56 PM

It's basically a kit to wire in that runs when the compressor is running.
Part number 5303916895
It's not cheap, but if you install it blowing on the compressor and have decent gap at the top of the fridge it will pull air across the condenser over the compressor and exhaust beneath the unit to the front. Then you would have dynamic condenser instead of static. They developed the kit for refrigerators that were being put into garages in places like sunny Florida to prevent overheating of the oil in the compressors.

#278446 Refrigerator compressor activates fan

Posted by Spannerwrench on 20 December 2013 - 03:35 PM

I think you have a static condenser on that model. You don't necessarily need 5" but you can't push it back so that the condenser coils completely touch the wall.
You need to be able to have room air remove the heat from the condenser or the oil will gel up in the compressor. If you have a gap at the top and both sides you can wire in a fan with the compressor. This is a basic model I do believe.
Frigidaire has a garage kit for there refers, I'll try and get the part number.

#277430 question

Under the bottom pallet there's orange and black electrical tape, a set of 60 different bits including security tips, misc connectors and nuts, bolts and screw case. A digital clamp amp meter with temp, a regular digital meter (takes amps through the leads) with temp and an analog meter and the small lead set from radio shack. I also carry a 12v Bosch driver down there as well. These are all inside of cut to fit foam pads so that nothing moves while carrying. A clean microfiber cloth, a green scrub pad, protective gloves and latex gloves. Also a full set of stubby standard and metric wrenches.
Behind the top pallet there's a plastic water line for various things, a jumper wire, a hard plastic case for my iPad and misc marketing materials.
My setup looks like I'm coming into the house carrying a CIA bomb detonation breefcase. And it wows the customer to see how prepared I am to do battle with their misbehaving kids, I mean appliances.
The only downside is that I'm going to need shoulder surgery by the time I'm 50.

#277403 LG Fridge works, Cools, but Runs way too much, 4.5 KW per day energy usage.

You have R134a Gauges 1/2" and most appliance techs use R12 gauges 1/4".buy an adaptor like this I have quite a few I keep around that I can convert any combination of the two between each other.

Swap the connectors and the lines on the water valve and retest, if the occurs in the other drawer instead you have a bad valve.

#276115 Fisher Paykel GWL10US Out of Balance

Posted by Spannerwrench on 02 December 2013 - 04:59 PM

Yes it it should be depressed if unless it is out of balance. What you most likely need to replace is the for struts that support the basket assembly and make sure the machine is on level ground. Once you have reset the off balance condition the unit should run again unless the out of balance condition reoccurs.

Suspects are in this order thermistor, control, heater.

#275666 Fisher & Paykel Motor controll board Help

Posted by Spannerwrench on 27 November 2013 - 06:17 PM

I wasn't trying to offend you or anything, just trying to help, I've gone out behind many companies, technicians and DIYers before and seen them not read the instructions that came with the part.
A couple questions though.
Where did you get the part from?
What was the part number that you ordered and what was the part number that you received? You have a Phase 7 unit, and while the parts may looks identical to other models, they will not work if installed in the wrong unit.

You may have received a bad part. Fisher & Paykel does make their own control boards, and they have them returned as cores to be rebuilt and resold. There's a chance that they sent one that was bad. If you got it from any other source than F&P, such on one of those auction or other big internet sites, you may have gotten someone else's bad part.

Just remember, everyone on this site is trying to help and that's it. I hope you get it straightened out and Happy Thanksgiving.

Here they are.

• The Auto Water Levels chosen may be incorrect.
• The High Water Level may be incorrect by as much as 40mm.

actions causing tangling, splash over or excess linting.

#275509 Whirlpool Gold Ice Maker Problem - Stumped!

Posted by Spannerwrench on 26 November 2013 - 10:22 AM

An easy test of the valve if you don't have a meter is to swap the connectors at the solenoid and press the dispenser paddle and see if water enter the ice maker.
Also important, what is the actual temperature of the freezer?
Is it cold enough to cycle the new ice maker?
