      [Webinar] Appliantology Peer Group   02/08/2018

        We're doing something totally new this time! In this first ever meeting of the Appliantology Peer Group, we'll be hosting a roundtable-style question and answer webinar. Bring something you'd like to share with your brethren in the craft: it could be photos, a tech tip, new insights gleaned from recent training -- anything having to do with the business or technical sides of the appliance repair trade. If you've got something to show, we'll let you share your screen and give you the opportunity to teach us all something new. And of course, Team Samurai will be there to answer any questions you might have about how to use Appliantology.

    I hope to be there. It's been a while since I've been at one of these, and last time my audio would just not work at all no matter what I did, but if everything goes well, I should be there.

  20. I need the full service manual for the Bosch WTG86401UC/01 FD9506201284. I found the schematic but I need manual with fault codes and troubleshooting.If any one has it I would appreciate it if you could add it to library.
  21. Old westinghouse wall oven

    I got nuttin’ on this old war horse, budrow.
  22. Thanks to you also Willie (budget appliance repair) I too appreciate the unselfish help you provide and your time and effort. As you suggested i contributed to the beer fund in question and now that I know about it . I hope this will help the Smirnoff fund and it’s recipients. Thanks again for your help. Darren412
  23. The clock remains totally steady, no blinking. When I press “start,” the oven starts to heat. Like I said, it just randomly shuts itself off.
  24. What you just provided for me Scott states entry into Ice Maker Diagnostic Mode as Press ٨ and + temperature pads for up to 10 sec. simultaneously. I have in my possession the tech sheet I took from the refrigerator itself. But here's how entry into Ice Maker Diagnostic reads on what I have in my hand now...Press ( shows the little arrow up) and ( shows the little arrow down) temperature pads for up to 10 sec. simultaneously. See the difference? I have Service Data Sheet A01544601 right out from under the box. And the kick plate is horrible putting back into place. Appreciate you my brother.
