      [Webinar] Appliantology Workshop   11/09/2017

      Information is the name of the game in the appliance repair trade today. Appliantology is a powerful information tool for the professional appliance repair technician. But just like with any of the more capable tools in your tool bag, many of the more powerful features are hidden from you unless you "read the manual." Ugh! Who wants to do that? Well, this is one time when you don't have to! In this webinar, Team Samurai will personally walk you through the site and show you many of the useful and powerful features that even long-time users probably never knew existed.

724 views

UPDATE: The Oven and Range Repair course is now open for enrollment. Click here for details

Team Samurai is turning up the heat this July with a new full-length technical course: Oven and Range Repair

The content that we’ve created for you is absolutely fantastic. We cannot wait to be able to open the doors so you can see it for yourself.

This is a mondo course, with over 30 original videos and 7 Case Studies, that was almost a year in the making using the same training structure for the prerequisite courses we developed for Sub-Zero Wolf factory training.

The Oven and Range Repair training course covers all the technology used in modern gas and electric cooking appliances, ovens, cooktops, and microwaves, and includes seven real-world troubleshooting case studies using the world-famous Ten Step Tango® troubleshooting procedure.

Next to refrigerators, cooking appliances are the most profitable appliances to repair, especially high-end cooking appliances. Any appliance company that expects to thrive and prosper in the coming recession needs to be competent at troubleshooting and repairing high-end cooking appliances and this course empowers any tech to do exactly that.  

Here's a list of the topics taught in the course:

1 Groundwork concepts
    1.1 Basic electricity refresher
    1.2 Conductor ampacity
    1.3 120/240 VAC split phase power supplies
    1.4 Ghost voltage and electrical measurements
    1.5 GFCI and AFCI circuit protection
    1.6 Gas fuel basics
2 Cooking appliance technology
    2.1 Mechanical and solid state relays
    2.2 Capacitive touchpanels
    2.3 Motorized door lock assemblies
    2.4 RTD oven temperature sensors
    2.5 Electronic oven controls
    2.6 Microwave oven operating principles and troubleshooting
    2.7 Electric cooktop infinite switches
    2.8 Radiant and inductive cooktops
    2.9 Gas surface burners
    2.10 Gas oven burners
    2.11 Fuel conversion on gas ovens and cooktops
    2.12 Gas burner spark ignition systems
    2.13 Gas flame detection and burner reignition systems
    2.14 Gas oven hot surface ignition systems
    2.15 Direct spark ignition (DSI) systems
3 Seven troubleshooting case studies on modern, real-world gas and electric ovens and cooktops applying the principles taught in the course and the world-famous Ten Step Tango® troubleshooting procedure.
    3.1 Dual fuel range - oven no heat
    3.2 Double wall oven - long pre-heat
    3.3 Dual fuel range - gas surface burner continuous sparking
    3.4 Dual fuel range - gas surface burner no ignition
    3.5 Gas range - bake burner no ignition
    3.6 Gas range - low/erratic oven temperature
    3.7 Electric cooktop - hot surface indicator light stays on

The Oven and Range Repair training course will be released this coming Saturday, July 15, 2017, at the bargain introductory tuition of only $375. We'll announce the official release in our newsletter. Look for it in your inbox.

Will this tuition be an additional cost to the bundle courses we already paid for , when we signed up for the MST academy?

Short answer: yes.

When you enroll in a bundle you are paying for the courses that are in that bundle at that time. (That's how the tuition is calculated.) The new bundles will have a higher tuition that reflects the addition of the new course.

Folks currently enrolled in an original bundle can just sign up for the new course when they are ready to take it.

Make sense? :)

Big time! 

It was a huge effort and a long time in the making. We have hundreds of manhours into developing this course and we're really proud of how it turned out. Students will learn all the modern technology and be able to apply it in the troubleshooting case studies. When they complete course, they'll have the skills needed to accurately troubleshoot any gas or electric cooking appliance.

Awesome! I should be able to take this... have to ask my boss, of course, but they have had no problem paying for all the rest of the courses. Glad this one's finally out!

Any discount for those of us signed up over here at appliantology and that have taken other MST courses? :D
