    Kenmore/LG 79572052112 service manual request

    Good job finding the manual! For others coming along later, you can find manuals for models with special symbols, like periods “.” in them, by using the double asterisk technique to search without the period: search term: *72052* and select the “Files” section of the site in the search options. You’ll find this file:

    Hello again Samurai Masters, Please guide me in testing this washer. Is my drain pump spastic? Or do I have a failing control module? I have a multi-meter and am good with going all the way to component level to help diagnose the issue if needed. Thank you all in advance. 😃

  9. I tried a few more searches creatively massaging the kenmore numbers and I found it! Looks like Durham downloaded it in 2013. Thanks for the backup Appliantology guys! Access to service document files alone are worth the price of membership here!! Thanks!

    Hi Nick. I'm sorry for the delay in my reply. I did not anticipate my husband having the machine in pieces when I got home. We have not replaced the drain pump. The pump drains the tub with significant force...when it does run. That is the problem. As an example, the "normal" cycle will run great until the 12 minute mark. Then it stops and codes "LD". Long ago, we would let it sit for a while then press "power" (it would show "12") and then "start" and it would finish the cycle. Over time, it has stopped with and "SD" code and also anywhere between 24 and 30 minutes remaining in the cycle. Sometimes unplugging for a while would allow us to change to the "drain and spin" setting to finish the cycle. Now, it can take an entire day of fiddling with it to finish a load. With the washer apart, I could not follow instructions for determining this crazy machine's problem, so I tried going with the suggestion on the link. We received and replaced the valve unit today. Hoping against hope this was the problem and we could call it done. Nope. Still LD at 12 minutes. Someone please help.
  14. Right, I did. We are in the service manual request forum.

  19. That’s the little devil! Replace it with the same thermistor for everything else - WR55X10025. That will be the fresh food evaporator thermistor. It’s been a while since I’ve done one, but I seem to recall digging the old one out of the aluminum block (a thermal mass) and using RTV to seal the new one in. If that’s not possible, zip tie the new one so it is tight against the evaporator coil in the same location....and then it’s ready for the volcano toss! If you have the ability to test the resistance of the thermistor with a multi-meter you can do it on the control board in the back. Look for the J1 connector pins J1-1 to J1-5. Look for 5k ohms at room temp and 70 - 80K ohms at -10 to -20. One handy trick is to drop it in a glass of ice water and it should show a resistance of 16.3K ohms at 32 degrees.

  21. Would anyone have a link or a PDF for the wiring diagram for a Range DCS-RG-304? I looked inside my stove and there was only a very small piece left I have been looking online for hours. Will call DCS tomorrow (Monday) I can provide an email if needed. Thank you Honydoer
  22. So many months back the evaporator coils in the fridge started icing up and I cannot for the life of me figure this fix out. I have replaced the thermistor on the side of the fresh food section, the motherboard, the drip pan (it was corroded and clogged so I swapped that out and cleared the drip drain). I have replaced the heater in the freezer section and the defrost thermostat. The only other thing I can think of to replace before throwing this damn thing into a volcano is this weird right angle thermistor that lives in an aluminum bracket zip tied to the fridge evap coils. It seems like it's a regular old thermistor but it's heat molded into a right angle fitting that sticks snug into the bracket thing. This part does not seem to exist in the official parts diagrams for the fridge on the GE site. Any ideas? "Throw the fridge and yourself into a volcano" is a valid suggestion cus that's about where I am at with my frustration on this one!! photos of the problem:
  23. AIT, Would you happen to have a link for the wiring diagram for this range? DCS-RG-304. I tried to open a link provided to you in this forum; but, i could not open it. I could provide you an e-mail if you have the PDF. Thanks for this post BTW. It saved me a lot of time. Honeydoer

    GE Freeze Up

    Thanks for the info. I ordered 2 thermistors to see if that works. The board is about $250! Hope it's not that.

    GE Freeze Up

    By 'frosting up' I assume you mean having an automatic defrost issue- frost/ice buildup on evaporator coil, top to bottom, left to right, and front to rear. There are five possible issues that would cause this. 1) Failed (broken) heat element. 2) Failed (broken) defrost terminator. 3) Failed (open or out of range) thermistor. 4) Failed control board (failure to iniate defrost cycle, defrost relay inoperable). 5) Broken wire in cabinet. Since you have replaced the heat element and defrost terminator we will exclude those. The thermistor is what monitors the temperature at the top of the evaporator coil. It can fail and the board 'thinks' the coil is warm. So the board will go into defrost, but instantly recognize that the coil is warm and not provide voltage to the heater. If the thermistor has black rubber where the wires connect to the thermistor, it has been known to fail out of range. (GE used a few different manufacturers for these and the ones with the black rubber are least robust.) Thermistors are cheap and easy to replace. It is located on the top of the evap coil. The board is located on the back of the unit. It has a defrost relay that will close (providing power) to the heat element when it determines a defrost is needed. It is possible that the board has failed and is either not iniating a defrost cycle, or, it is initiating a defrost cycle but the defrost relay has failed. Lastly, I have seen the wiring break in the cabinent (non serviceable) from the board to the heat element. (Very rare though).As a test, you can unplug the power cord from wall. Remove the connector that supplies power to the board located on bottom of board, three wires. Look at the board closely where the connector was removed and you will see Comp, Defrost, Line. You can use a jumper wire (piece of wire 2-3" striped on the ends) and 'jump' the Line and Defrost by inserting wire into the connector. Plug in power cord. You are now providing known power to the heat element and it should begin to heat. This indicates that you do not have a broken wire (as well as a quick way to defrost the coil.) It also indicates that you have a working defrost limiter (provided the coil is still iced up), as well as indicates a working heater. It does not, however, indicate either a failed thermistor nor a failed board. Unfortunately you replaced the two components that are easily tested to see if they are failed. The rest of the components require a bit more testing and although possible to test the thermistor, they can be good when tested, but fail within a certain range, whcih can be tricky. My standard protocol for this is to test the heater and defrost terminator using a multimeter and checking for simple continuity. If they are good, no need to replace them. If they are good, I then test for a broken wire using the jumper. If I get heat, then I know I have either a failed board or a failed thermistor. Since the thermistor is cheap, I replace the board and thermistor if I have a defrost issue. Often it is simply the board, but since I am already in the compartment, it is cheap and easy enough to replace the thermistor while I am in there, rather than have a call back. Good luck...

    Hello. You never said you replaced the drain pump. That would be my next step given the information you have provided. I have changed lots of drain pumps where you could get it to drain by sloshing the water. And most of the owners were describing possessed machines as you are. Don't overthink it, the pump change won't be too bad on you back or pocketbook.

    Okay. So, life has gotten in the way of my desire to repair this machine. But, I'm back and need to get this problem diagnosed. Anyone still available?
