  6. Couple year old dryer stops early in normal cycle and blows thermal fuse. I have cleared the exhaust vent which is 16ft of hardpipe with one 90 degree elboe. I have replaced the flex exhaust line. I have taken apart the blower housing and it is clean. I have replaced the heat coil, thermal fuse and high limit. It heats a couple loads on timed dry and then thermal fuse blows. Laundry is piling up and wife not happy.

  21. The Master Samurai Tech Alumni Program

    Question: "What if I already am a Professional Appliantologist?" Answer: If you'd like to get moved over to the MST Alumni program, whatever time you have left will be added on to the 1-year term. For example, say you have been a PA member for 8 months. If you switch to the MST Alumni program, you will be an Alumnus member for 1 year and 4 months before you need to renew. Alternatively, you can just wait until your PA membership expires before applying for the Alumnus membership.
  22. Thermador PRD484EEG Shuts Off at Start Up (Sometimes)

    Screws are hidden behind the control knobs, good luck.
  23. Laissez les bons temps rouler! Great job and well in advance of Shrove Tuesday.
  24. Are you still getting that error code? I'd look for an open thermal cut off, probably just behind the relay board in the upper compartment. Most likely has two red wires going to it.
  25. In this special episode, we explore the question of size of the Samurai's ego. Turns out that it's so massive that we needed a whole episode devoted to it. Yes, size does matter!

  26. Frigidaire is a PITA with their manuals-- instead of categorizing them by model number number like everyone else, they do it by manufacture date. Get the date off the model number tag and use this post to identify the manual you need: https://appliantology.org/blogs/entry/748-frigidaire-refrigerator-survival-kit/
