      [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.

  1. Today
  2. I believe I have found the problem. The unit has power, but the no electricity gets to the broiler igniter. The oven igniter works and all 6 burners work. The oven/broiler thermostat has continuity for both bake & broil. the Dual Thermal Gas Valve in the back appears to be the problem. One side (the oven) has continuity, but the other side (the broiler?) does not. I just ordered the part (#210782) from DCS. They were the least expensive option at $100.86 for the part. I hope this is the issue!
  3. Yesterday
  4. Hot and cold hooked up correctly!
  5. Yes on valve receiving voltage. Water Pressure is good, inlet valve replaced, pressure switch replaced, and I have ordered a ccu (central control unit, hopefully that's the issue. Expected to be here by Friday. Fingers crossed!

  10. Customer gave me the model # of 0BB30. He was able to order a part from that so I'm *assuming* it's valid, but I couldnt pull anything up on various parts sites. The unit is about 60 yrs old though. Specifically, I'm looking for a diagram or schematic to wire up the thermostat. He says new one has 2 extra tabs, confusing things. I need to get out there but it would be nice to have something to go off. Thanks, Jared
  11. DCS RGS-366 Broiler not working

    I would start by checking if you have 120v to the ignitor at the plug.
  12. Hey Willie! You were exactly right!!! I measured the voltage across the two red wires and got 240V. Disconnected and removed the relay board and found a really bad solder joint on the DLB relay. Cleaned it up real good and resoldered it and the oven heated right up. The bad solder joint was horrible and looked like it was completely eaten away over the years. The relay leg wasn't even in electrical or mechanical contact with the circuit board anymore. I am going to let my wife and daughters do a little baking before i finalize the installation back into the wall just to make sure nothing else comes up. Thank you so much for all your help! Could I send you some beer money via paypal or heck I would be happy to write a check and send it to your house. Just let me know. Steve
  13. Whirlpool Duet model wfw9150WW00

    hot and cold hooked correctly??...Check the cold water, check the volume of water..Remove the cold line from the washer and run it in a pail...good flow???? It was debris build up at the water service shut-off valve....Had one with a machine with almost the same problem...But no code fit the tech sheet on the machine....

  19. Free Tech Membership at Appliantology

    Great question, Brother @Lighthouse! Both member groups have the same access and privileges at the site. Only difference is in the term of membership for each group. The MST Alumni membership is an annual membership meaning it automatically expires at the end of the term and you request to be reinstated. As long as you’re active at the site (roughly 2:1 posts to downloads ratio) this is a formality and reinstatement is guaranteed. This will need to be repeated annually at the end of the member term. The Fellowship is an indefinite membership term that does not automatically expire. However, a condition of the Fellowship is continued activity at the site (again, roughy 2:1). If someone earns a Fellowship then conspicuously becomes inactive, the Fellowship is in jeopardy of being withdrawn. We would attempt to communicate with the Fellow via PM prior to this. It’s completely within the membership flow for someone to be an MST Alumni member for a term or several and then to have acquired sufficient seniority and posts to request a Fellowship. You, for example! If you’d like to request a Fellowship, head on over here: https://appliantology.org/blogs/entry/1009-the-senior-appliantology-fellowship-program/

    If you qualify for both Senior Appliantology Fellow, and Master Samurai Tech Alumni Is there any advantage of one over the other?

    “Ohms Law and circuits: why bother learning this stuff?” asked tool-wielding chimp.
  25. The igniter does not glow at all. I did not check the wires leading to the igniter from the oven. The oven has electrical power. The oven lights work. Perhaps something is preventing power from getting to the broiler igniter.
  26. Does anyone have a service manual for JGW8130ADB?
  27. DCS RGS-366 Broiler not working

    Does the ignitor have 120v going to it? Does it glow but no gas comes out?
