    If the O-ring gets stretched, pinched, or twisted when taking the shortcut, you are screwed...
  6. Do what ever you want. If I were to call tech support they would say they designed it to be replaced as an assembly and to install all parts in the kit. Me personally I would spend the extra couple of minutes to do the repair right or not do it at all.

  11. Johntech, Thank you for the answer. "You will need to install the whole assembly" Why? I was able to easily snap the motor out, test it on my bench, and snap it right back in. It has "O" rings and was clearly meant to be disassembled. I can supply pictures next time I have it disassembled. "I wouldn't reccommend just replacing the motor." Why not? Other than the "O" ring, there's nothing common to the assembly. Is there some possibility the failed motor has affected the pump housing? Thanks again for your help, Brad
  12. Motor has updated part number and is sold as an assembly only. Part number: W10879262 You can pull up a picture on repair clinic. You will need to install the whole assembly, I wouldn't reccommend just replacing the motor. Since the part has been updated it may not even fit on your existing housing.
  13. Ok, so the problem was the circulation pump. Interestingly, I was able to remove just the motor from the side of the unit, just slid the washer out, pushed down a locking tab, rotated the pump and it slid right out. After I took it apart it started working. However, it's intermittent, and I think it's something on the PC board for the shaded pole motor (I tested the motor with 120AC out of the washer). The motor is an Askoll M310. But I can't find just the motor itself, which is a shame since it's all modular and just clicks together. Does anyone know where I can get just the motor for this unit? Otherwise I'll have to buy the whole pump assembly and just use the motor.
  14. Edgestar Standalone Ice Maker Tech Sheet

    Thanks, that was my next step. This unit has a very interesting design to make ice. I don't think it's so great, but it is very different. The unit is cold enough and makes ice, but melts in the bucket almost as fast as it dumps the ice. The water flows over the evaporator and makes ice cubes into a honeycomb type reservoir which is virtical not horizontal. Ive never seen anything like it.
  15. Cracked Drum On LG Dryer

    LG will send a whole new drum BUT the drum may get bent out of round during shipping. All it takes is a little bit and it'll make lots of noise, back at square 1. This can be a nightmare.

    Try contacting Edgestar directly and see if they'll hook you up. I've had success doing this with various obscure manufacturers. Just tell them that you're a servicer working on of their products for their customer who is anxious to get it repaired quickly. Most respond well to this.

  20. Cracked Drum On LG Dryer

    I ran into same problem.On a LG DLE0332W. First went over, dryer thumping......thought rollers... Ordered parts...took dryer apart to change out rollers and I see the rollers look new and not the problem. I noticed that the drum had a split on the weld... and a crack. I'm not sure how old this dryer is but I'm wondering if this would be a manufacturer defect on the welded joint and under warranty. Would LG send a new drum. How would I go about finding out... Any LG TECH. That could help. Thanks
