    Multi-tech Operators: Grow your business with Master Samurai Tech

    By Samurai Appliance Repair Man

    The problem in the appliance repair trade today is that we have too many parts changers and not enough technicians.

When troubleshooting electrical problems with appliance, like no-heat complaints in dryers, you absotootly gotta have the wiring diagram / tech sheet that comes packaged with the appliance. The manufacturers cleverly hide these inside the appliance to keep owners from finding them and losing them. I love when I go out on a job and need the tech sheet but it's been removed from the appliance. The customer then informs that they took it and filed it so it wouldn't "get lost" but they can't find
