      [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.

  2. Need service manual for Frigidaire M# FGHB2866PFGA

    Domo for the update, Brother Quick!
  3. Follow up to say the tech sheet provided with the refrigerator had the WRONG instructions printed on it. The ice maker (diagnostic key dance) was wrong! The tech sheet above that Scott provided me had the correct key dance. I made notes on the tech sheet and put it back under the box for the next tech...
  4. Yesterday
  5. LG Dryer Serv Manual

    Disassembly will be the same as for the electric version of this model
  6. K-A REF, KSSC42MHS00

    Uses this tech sheet and this service manual
  7. Has a wiped out roller. Just need to know how to get into the dang thing
  8. Looking for a service manual for Kitchenaid ref, KSSC42MHS00. But a tech sheet would help too
  9. Samurai Appliance Repair Man and Mrs. Samurai suss out various angles and facets in a sensational recent news story where a Sears contractor tech attacked a customer. Lots of interesting lessons from this story for both customers and in-home service professionals. Link to the news story: http://denver.cbslocal.com/2018/02/19/repairman-arrested-homeowner-attack/
  10. Searched back to LCE* Seeking service manual for this 36" radiant cooktop by LG. LCE3681ST Customer complaint of beeping intermittently at all hours of day and night but never while being used.

  13. Hello I could not find a service manual. No ice temperature in ice compartment around 20 degrees please help. Thank you
  14. If you verified thermistor is good , I’d test it from board. P2-5 and P2-6 if open you have a wire harness issue. Inspect wire harness closely.
  15. U-line service manual

    ?? I posted the service manual for you in my previous reply.
  16. U-line service manual

    Yes done all that
  17. Tech Manual for Kenmore 790.49609315

    Tech sheet, parts manual, and schematics: You can usually cross it over to the OEM equivalent by using a key part like the EOC, plugging that PN into Appliance Parts Pros, and looking on their cross reference list. Not 100% but it works most of the time.
