      [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.

  1. Today
  2. That is what GE has on their site so that is about as good as it gets for that tech sheet since it is an old scanned copy.
  3. Jenn-Air Range D120

    Not finding anything but parts diagram on this one. Pretty basic unit.
  4. Not to discourage you but these machines aren't all that great. Might be worth investing in another washer.
  5. LG Dishwasher LDF7561ST Not Draining

    Check and make sure the air gap is clear and the disposal drain tube from the air gap to the disposal is clear.
  6. There is a part number on the original t-stat installed. Replacing it requires you to cut and splice. Try this one. WPW10165425
  7. Samsung FTQ353IWUX Error Code E-08

    Check you breaker switch. Also confirm you are receiving 220 at the terminal block.
  8. Glad you got it figured out.
  9. This model has service pointers from WP on both the user interface and control boards. There is a new wiring harness included with the new control board kit. Service pointer for the control boards is W10802724C Service pointer for the user interface is 4317485
  10. Although.... if you call after hours and get transferred to their call center which is located in Australia, they probably won't ask for a servicer ID#.
  11. An ohms reading on the igniter would also tell you if its bad. If you get no amp draw but have voltage the the igniter needs to be replaced.
  12. They have gotten real picky over the last year. They almost always ask for my servicer ID#.
  13. Great machine worth repairing. I still have the same style. For about 250$USD you can pretty much ensure you have a washer for the next 10 years. Most common parts on this machine are the clutch, agitator dogs, lid switch, coupler, transmission and pump. I would in a hot second replace any of these items for my machine.
  14. I tried but there is no option to make a new post. I assume that I need to sign up for a $197.00 membership. This is the first time in 10 years that I've needed this site therefore it just doesn't justify me spending $197.00 for something that I will very rarely use.
  15. Try posting this in the tech help section. https://appliantology.org/forum/4-appliance-repair-tech-forum/
  16. Also are there error codes?
  17. There is a tech sheet behind the bottom drawer. Also F&P phone lines are open 24hours. May get lucky and find someone willing to help a consumer diagnose the problem.
  18. Easy way to test. Swap the upper and lower drawer controls. If the problem moves to the other drawer, then you know it's the board.
  19. Hey guys. Just FYI I am an appliance tech. Been doing with for about 10 years. I've got kinda a weird one. I have a Bosch Wall Oven model HBL542AUC that heats only when the door is opened. When you close the door, the lights go off and it stops heating. Upon opening the door, the lights go on, the convection fan starts up and it starts to heat. The door hinges and door switch have all been replaced. It had this problem before I changed these parts (they were replaced because someone fell on the door and bent it damaging the door switch). We had this same problem about 10 years ago with one of these but I am unable to find the job in our computer system. If I remember correctly, it might have been the small relay board attached to the back of the Oven Control Board. Anyone run into this before? Thanks.
  20. LG refrigerator not cooling

    For the same model number refrigerator as yours? Built before March 2009 (903KR)?
  21. LG refrigerator not cooling

    So even in the test sequence if everything tests good the main board may still be bad? I have seen a couple other forums which suggest people have changed the main boards with no improvement however I have not seen any resolution to those threads.
  22. Plastic gears- almost universally silent, especially when run in an oil bath. Rip it on open and let us know what you find.
  23. 665.14722111 compactor tech docs needed. Tech sheet W10415490 & Wiring diagram 9872109 Thanks!!!
