      [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.

Inverter Motor Fuse Eliminated from GE Hydrowave Top-Load Washers

Samurai Appliance Repair Man


From the GE Tech bulletin on this:

New variable speed inverter motors no longer

require the in-line fuse. When replacing an

older Hydrowave inverter motor with the new

inverter motor, the in-line fuse must be

removed from the washer harness. Failure to

remove this fuse link will cause the fuse link to

fail due to the higher inrush current of the new

motor design.

Replacement motors will include a jumper wire

and 2 wire splices to remove the in-line fuse.
