GE Wall Oven Model #JKP36GOH1BG

18 August 2015 - 12:42 AM

I know.....here he is with another GE wall oven (Electric).


Well, it's been that kind of a week.


This one works fine upper and lower ovens, except the Self Clean cycle.


It's about 15-20 years old according to the customer.


It has had the timer replaced, years ago with a digital one.


The instructions for Self Clean are not the same for this clock as for the manual one.


There's no Tech sheet, no owner's manual, nor instructions for using the digital timer.


At times I can get the Self Clean to come on, but only the broil element in both ovens.


In regular Bake mode, the elements come on fine.


Both ovens lock OK, but setting the timer is a problem.


If we had the instructions for the clock, it would go easier, as it seems it's not cooperating. Sometimes, it

gives me the chance to set the Stop time, and other times it won't.


I know it sounds confusing, because it is. The ovens are working fine except for this self cleaning cycle. Then

it goes haywire.



GE Wall Oven Model #JKP86W0F6WW

14 August 2015 - 09:47 PM



This customer has a wall oven/microwave combination. She was cooking in the oven this morning and

everything seemed to be going OK, then the oven started cooling down to no heat at all, even though

the settings looked like it was still on.


After that, neither the oven nor broil will heat up. Breaker is fine, elements are fine.


Anyone seen one of these before?




GE Refrigerator Model #ZISS360DRSS

08 August 2015 - 07:30 PM


Just curious about this issue.


I had a customer today with this GE builtin refrigerator. Tested it out and the Inverter is bad.


No problem, I thought...


Then I called the parts store and they told me, my price would be $425.00 for this inverter.


I have changed quite a few inverters on "Garbage Extraordinaire" brand refrigerators, but

never have I seen a price quote, wholesale, like this.


Am I missing something here? Or do they really not want customers to repair their junk?


I think I already know the answer to that.




Kitchenaid Refrigerator Model #KSSC42FMS01

06 August 2015 - 12:57 AM


This is a built in unit.


The customer complained that the refrigerator first started warming up and then the freezer started losing it.


I was called out to fix their hot water heater and the tenant mentioned the landlord had another technician

out on July 29 and he said he needed to replace the evap fan motor.


When I was there, I saw lots of frost on the freezer rear wall. The evap fan motor wasn't running and either

was the condenser fan motor. The compressor was working away.


Also the display in the console was blinking on and off.


They asked me what I thought and I told them it sure looked like a bad main control board, at least.


Now, they want me to take care of it.


Any help on this is greatly appreciated.


Thank you,


Maytag Electric Dryer Model # MDET446AYW

27 July 2015 - 04:01 PM

Serial # 11909744JV


This dryer is my son's. He's in Pennsylvania and I'm in Los Angeles, so trying to help him over the phone.


Two days ago they had an electrical surge hit the neighborhood and after that the dryer doesn't work right.


His wife starts it, as usual. It runs about 30 seconds and then shuts down.


It does the same thing everytime she tries to run it. 30 - 60 seconds, then turns off.


Any ideas greatly appreciated.
