  3. MSD2454FRW

    if it does , they are bad about this part breaking. 61005614
  4. Maytag LDE712 Won't Stop

    most likely a bad timer.
  5. if your vent is good , you are on the right track, clean the moisture sensors just to be sure
  6. MSD2454FRW

    is it making any noise when you push the button ?
  7. MSD2454FRW

    Water / ice dispenser will not work. Stopped suddenly.
  8. I have a Maytag electric dryer, model number MDE9520AYQ. It runs and heats but the timer will not advance in the auto dry modes. It does advance when I put it on timed dry. I ordered and am waiting for a new cycling thermostat, but I am wondering if it can be anything else. I checked and there is good air flow through the exhaust duct. The cycling thermostat is the only other thing I could think of it being.
  9. I have an old school Maytag electric dryer, model number LDE712. When I plug it in, it starts and runs automatically. The only time it will turn off is when I open the door. Even when I turn the timer dial to an off position, it will not turn off. I have never seen anything like this before. Any help will be appreciated!
  10. GE JVM1752 Microwave Service Manual Needed

    Uses same minimanual as this one
  11. Thanks to all of you I am pretty sure that my F02 fault code on my Miele Dishwasher G 4225 is because of the temperature sensor! Thank you for that, my question is now, once I receive the replacement part, how would I remove the old and install the new sensor? There is no instructions anywhere found on the internet or You Tube. Thank You!
  12. Need a service manual for this microwave. GE JVM1752DP2BB
  13. Samsung DV40J3000EW/A2 stops mid normal cycle

    If the spade connectors are not real tight on the thermal fuse it will generate heat and blow the fuse. They should not pull off easily by hand. Until you have the problem solved I would disconnect the duct to take it out of the equation entirely. Did you test the thermistor? That is the temp sensor on this model. I do not see a lot of them go bad but I do see them get covered with lint which insulates it and causes over heating conditions. Could also be a relay sticking on the main control. Run a no heat cycle and make sure it does not heat. Part number: DC32-00007A Google samsung dryer thermistor and you will find a video on how to test it.
  14. Uses same minimanual as this one:
  15. Tech Doc’s Request

    Uses this service manual, which also has the schematic in it
  16. Oh, I was just getting excited about finding it for you! I never find the diagnostics to be very useful on these old Arctica boxes. You can usually do all the troubleshooting you need right from the board. But for that, you do need the schematic. The minimanual for this one is the same as the same as for this model
  17. Never mind. She had interior lights with a dead box. Looking at the schmatic the board surly had power to it. Quoted her a board 180 bucks and down the tube the job went after spending a good 45 min on the thing. L.O.L. Sorry for wasting your time just reading this request. Post. Quick
  18. I could not find anything with diagnostics. Key dance. Went to look again. Hell I just can't find it. Struggling along... Quick
  19. Looking for service manual and/or tech sheet. Found a a service manual in downloads but appears to be different design. Thanks Ed
  20. Thermador PRD484EEG Shuts Off at Start Up (Sometimes)

    Well, I took two screws off each end, took off all knobs and screws underneath them and the darn thing is still locked on solid. Looks like there are two screws on each side WWAAAYYY up inside that are almost impossible to reach (or see). Should be easier to get to the control board. Smarter than me I guess. On the bright side, since I flipped the breaker off and then turned it back on the ovens seem to fire up without shutting off. Maybe temporary, but I have my fingers crossed.
  21. samsung RF28HMED Cooling issues

    Are you able to take an actual temperature both compartments? Did the technician take compartment temps and compare that to the voltage readings on the main board for the sensors that correspond to each compartment? Did he check the health of the compressor itself and what the voltage is getting to it? If it ran all night non-stop as you say and still wasn't cold enough sounds like a sealed system issue to me...
  22. Samsung DV40J3000EW/A2 stops mid normal cycle

    Gill, did you check the exhaust vent flapper on the outside of the house to make sure it's not stuck shut?
