They'll be back, mah bruvah, don't you fret none! It's the busy summer season (refrigerators!) and everyone is straight out.

 

Also, we're thinking that the podcast may actually replace some of the webinar topics. But, we're alway open (and hoping for!) feedback and suggestions so, if you got 'em, let's hear 'em!

Appliance repair musicals. That's my best idea.

I listened to this podcast in the car and I couldn't help but think, "Hey! I'm Todd!" Thanks for the shout out. 

 

I am curious about the loading meter - I've never used one, and I understand the concept, but here's the question. Do you use your loading meter religiously every time you diagnose a defective load on the machine? Or is this a "save-your-ass" tool that you break out after you've 1) verified power to the load 2) replaced the load and 3) it still isn't working?
