      [Webinar] Electric Circuit Troubleshooting and EEPs   12/05/2016

      I have a special topic for tonight's Office Hours webinar on electric circuit troubleshooting and EEPs. If you've taken the Fundamentals course or watched any of my Youtube videos, you know that EEPs are a topic near and dear to my heart. EEPs = Electrically Equivalent Points. Identifying EEPs on a schematic is a key skill for any appliance tech today.  Another special feature about this Office Hours: in addition to the usual Academy students and Professional Appliantologist members, Senior Appliantology Fellows and Legacy Techs at Appliantology are also welcome to join us for this Office Hours. Just click into the topic below to RSVP and to get the connection info.

Money-Saving Tip for Replacing a Motor in a GE Dryer

Some models of GE dryers are actually made my Frigidaire... or they at least use Frigidaire parts. One example is the GE DSXH43EA3WW dryer. If you have one of these with a bad motor, here's a tip that could save you a couple of of Benjamins: use the Frigidaire part number instead of the GE part. Grand Master Reginald explains:

...The new G.E. motor is only 376.85 clams. :woot: ............ ...Or, If yer crafty, only 115 clams :tongue: for a Frigidaire motor...

GE DSXH43EA3WW built by Frigidaire

GE Motor $ 377

Remove the Belt and try turning the Motor Shaft by hand.

Does it turn easily, smoothly ?

Give the Motor Shaft a twirl by hand.

Does it continue to spin at all ?
