#279060 Kitchenaid MW/Oven combo Mod#KEHC379JWH05 Door error?

Posted by Spannerwrench on 27 December 2013 - 02:54 PM

Not the microwave fuse inside the microwave, but the fuse on top of the oven behind the control panel. It's in series with the door circuit. 9 out of 10 times when you get the door error.


#278875 Sub Zero 690/F Fridge is not cooling

Posted by Spannerwrench on 26 December 2013 - 06:29 AM

Time for an evaporator replacement. A sealed system job is in the immediate future.

Those hose ring pliers pay for them the first time you have to clean the coin trap on a Frigidaire front loader.

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.

Posted by Spannerwrench on 12 December 2013 - 08:43 AM

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.

#276158 Fisher Paykel DD603 - U1 Fault

Posted by Spannerwrench on 03 December 2013 - 06:30 AM

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.


#276157 HE error on Samsung DMT800RHS

Posted by Spannerwrench on 03 December 2013 - 06:14 AM

Accessed from the bottom after you remove the bottoms panel of the dishwasher.


#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.


#276096 HE error on Samsung DMT800RHS

Posted by Spannerwrench on 02 December 2013 - 01:31 PM

HE is not heating properly, H1 is too hot.
Suspects are in this order thermistor, control, heater.
