Topics I've Started

GE Refrigerator Model #PSB42YSXASS

02 May 2015 - 08:47 PM

This is a built-in GE Refrigerator. Customer thinks it's only about 2 years old.


It wasn't running when I arrived, so first thing I checked all the connections and one seemed

a little loose. A few minutes the compressor started up.

After 5 - 10 minutes it seemed to be cooling nicely, temp was coming down, BUT the

condenser fan motor was not on and didn't come on.


There were no tech sheets or diagnostics info up above to follow, so I told her I had

to do some research first and would get back to her Monday. They have another fridge, so

no lost food.


Ideas please?




Maytag Washer Model #MHWE450WW00

24 April 2015 - 08:49 PM

This machine works fine up to the spin cycle.


I put it in Drain/Spin and it drained and started to spin down to the 8 minute mark.


It wouldn't spin fast and it stayed on the 8 minute mark indefinitely.


Does that sound like an MCU problem or maybe the main CCU??




Frigidaire Refrigerator Model #FRS6R5ESBH

12 April 2015 - 11:49 PM



This refrigerator had a very noisy damper. I replaced it.


A couple of weeks later there was a defrost problem. Ice buildup...you know the story.


Heater checked OK, so I replaced the defrost board and the bimetal.


2 weeks later the freezer is all iced up again and the diffuser is opening and closing constantly.


So, I ordered and replaced the defrost board again.


When I started the unit up, I heard the diffuser opening and closing constantly again. So, I asked the customer

to hold off running the fridge until I could research this further.


I'm thinking it might be the wrong diffuser they gave me, but tomorrow I'll call the parts distributor and

have them recheck the model #. I know having the wrong diffuser can affect other components.


Anyone seen this series of events before??






Whirlpool Duet Washer Model #WFW9450WWOO

05 March 2015 - 09:39 PM


This unit doesn't seem to be getting enough water in.


After the wash cycle, before rinse, the customer reports an F20 error code.


I ran the diagnostic test.


The unit filled with water, but not enough I thought, then the tub rotated clockwise as the sheet said.


But it also started to rotate CCW??


Then it drained fine and went into the spin cycle which it should have reached max rpms in about 15 seconds.

It was spinning at slow speed for about 10 seconds and then everything shut off.


Any ideas??




Kitchenaid Wall Oven Model #KEBC208KSSO

05 March 2015 - 09:34 PM


This is a double oven (Electric).


The lower works fine.


The upper oven sets up OK, but neither heating element energize.


The unit obviously has 220V to it for the lower oven to be working.


Anybody familiar with this one??
