  6. Hey Joel. I have a bit different Thermador dishwasher model, this one: and the LED display was acting weird but it turned out to be a similar circuit issue. Luckily, I figured it out before calling a pro and paying for the service Besides that, I am happy with it, especially the noise level and the stainless steel panel, looks minimalistic.

    Submitted This freezer was built by Electrolux (Frigidaire) Most of the time you can find the parts cheaper using the Frigidaire number instead of the GE part number

    Hello, I'm stuck on this issue and i can't seems to solve it. I'm working on a Thermador Pro Grand Range model # PG366BS/03 /// SERIAL #39411008332-800021

    The issue I'm trying to solve is that the unit uses an electrode and DSI for ignition and the unit does light up but the flame shuts off about 30-60 seconds into the pre heating cycle. It then re-lights and repeats the process mentioned prior of working for 30-60 sec and then shutting off. The unit will eventually reach its set temp but obviously not by the proper way. I have replaced the DSI and the Main board at this point and the issue has remained the same. I have looked up the parts schematics online and i cannot find the bake solenoid for the unit. can someone please help me solve this problem? does this unit have a bake solenoid ? and should i replace it? all comments are welcomed. 


    thank you in advance

    Hello , I have just upload the service manual ,please try using this number. GTW680BSJ* I hope you can locate it . Thank you Ria.
  11. Check the dip tube that sends the cold water to the bottom of tank. It may have broken off and is shorter now causing cold water to come in closer to the top of water heater.
  12. Service manual

    Please help, I am also trying to find this service manual, I have tried the * all the way back to GTW6* by starting with GTW680BSJ* but I can't find this manual Can you tell me what to use Thank you Roy
  13. It would be a lot easier to amp check those elements in the future rather than pull and inspect them. The elements will pull about 16 to 18.something amps. It's wired for non simultaneous operation, so only one element will heat at a time. You've basically replaced everything except for the dip tube and the T&P valve. A bad T&P would be pretty obvious. You'd see the water leaking somewhere. Bad dip tube is pretty rare but it happens. One sure sign would be bits of plastic in your dishwasher fill valve and the hot side of your washing machine fill valve. I don't recommend you pull and inspect them but you can keep an eye out for diminished flow of hot water on your washer. I would set both thermostats the same and try for at least 120 degrees. I know. They're not marked so put them in the middle an d go from there. As far as flushing your tank, others may disagree, but I'm a firm believer in "if it ain't broke, don't fix it, or fix it till it is.
  14. Hi, Looking for schematic for this freezer. #FUF14DVDRWW. I did find #FUF14DAD* but that's ones different. This unit has a defrost timer and the DVD has a control on outside of door. Thanks so much D
