#317019 F&P DD24DDFTX6 Dish drawer

Posted by Spannerwrench on 04 April 2015 - 09:24 AM

There is a check flap in drain that is only meant to prevent the water in the high loop from flowing back.  

A few tips.

Make sure the Y shaped hose joiner is installed properly one hose on top of the other, not side by side.  The hot water can cause the Y Connector to sag and a slow drain will occur.

Also make sure the drain line is installed properly, the drain should be routed floor level not cabinet base level.  It should be ran through the hollow spot under the cabinet and then up through the base to the top of the cabinet back down to the outlet.  If it is not installed in this fashion numerous water in the bottom tub challenges can occur.

#316947 Got my AllDolly

Posted by Spannerwrench on 03 April 2015 - 03:08 PM

We have two of the All-Dollies that the techs take when they have have an oven call.  Two dollies for seven techs right now, it's only bit us a few times, when customer says it's the stove not heating.  

#316944 thermidor stove

Posted by Spannerwrench on 03 April 2015 - 01:18 PM

I've had plenty Of the Thermador double wall ovens with the top oven also being a microwave that blows the fuse for no apparent reason.  I've replaced a lot of them without any callbacks.  I've been to the same houses for other appliances yet that fuse hasn't blown yet.


My favorite is a customer that lives beachside that called Sears, they ordered a Mag Tube and Transformer but it still didn't heat, so they they wanted to order the Diode and Capacitor.  The customer said no, I'll call someone else..  He saw one of our trucks on the island and called us.  I went out and found a blown fuse, replaced it and three years later it still works.  It's possible that one of those parts caused the fuse to blow, but I don't think so, they didn't even realize the fuse was bad.

#316830 Amana DLE330RAW dryer - gentle temp not working right?

Posted by Spannerwrench on 02 April 2015 - 01:32 PM

That looks like the part to me AP4070513, it short cycles the thermostat for low heat.  An easy test to see if it's that or the switch is to check for voltage at the thermostat heat.  If there's voltage but it doesn't work it's that part. Part number: AP4070513

Part number: AP4070513

. If there's no voltage then it's probably the Fabric selector switch, which is no longer available.  Part number: 40084101

Part number: 40084101

By the way the resistance for the thermostat heater should be 2400 +/- 240 Ohms.

#316553 Fresh food section too cold

Posted by Spannerwrench on 30 March 2015 - 05:27 PM

If the damper functions properly, then something else is causing it to open when it shouldn't.

Check at the flame sensor for voltage loss.  I've had a lot of these doing that where the problem was with the flame sensor part #Part number: 338906

#315954 Refrigerator Wall Vent

Posted by Spannerwrench on 20 March 2015 - 03:38 PM

I don't understand what you're selling here, or promoting.  If there is nothing mechanical that uses electricity, than all you've is came up with a way to exhaust air and refresh air to a refrigerator that was not properly installed. I work in customer homes every day where this has been done.


If I'm wrong let me know.  But, I don't understand how you created something new.

#315953 Steamer

Posted by Spannerwrench on 20 March 2015 - 03:33 PM

Not only better, but they're safer as well.  It's more easier to defrost a fridge without worrying about melting the liner, harness or other things.  The only time I've had an incidence is when a customer talked to me and I turned around and hit my wrist, that kinda hurt, but didn't scar.

#315950 Steamer

Posted by Spannerwrench on 20 March 2015 - 03:12 PM

A good steamer is a lot better than a heat gun.  

#315768 Frigidaire OTR Microwave No Heat FGMV174KFB

Posted by Spannerwrench on 18 March 2015 - 04:01 PM

Eye ye Yah, No aftermarket or generic parts allowed in this business.  Too much risk.  


But I do agree, usually I replace both the cap and the diode at the same time, if not it's a call back.

#315737 Electrolux FS FGEF308TNFB Code:68 Part 2

Here's the filter board part number, Electrolux also recommends replacing the electronic control at the same time.

#314872 GSH22JFREWW - Evaporator Fan Motor Not Coming On

Posted by Spannerwrench on 06 March 2015 - 03:24 PM

On most newer refrigerators everything starts in low speed, this may not apply to yours.  They always do the least energy consumption thing first.  

FF Warm: Open the damper from the freezer.

FF still warm: FZR fan starts at low speed, gradually increases if temperature doesn't decrease in the FF section.

FF still warm: Variable Speed compressor on at low speed will increase to high if needed until temp is good.

FZR warm: FZR fan starts at low speed and gradually increases until the compressor needs to start at low speed.  The compressor increase speed once again until the temp is met.


Turns off in the opposite direction.


This applies to most dual evaps with variable speed compressors as well, except the damper isn't involved.

#314428 GE Profile Refrigerator model PFSF6PKWBWW

Just an FYI.

Some of the tubes didn't have the additional holes, the kit part number I mentioned comes with the new style drain tube.
