[video] Troubleshooting a Kenmore-Electrolux Dual Fuel Range F30 Error Code
This dual fuel range was flashing an F30 error code. The tech sheet says this points to a problem with the RTD (temperature probe). A parts changing monkey reading only the error code description without looking at the schematic replaced the RTD only to have the exact same problem: F30 error code. Watch how a real technician uses both the tech sheet and the schematic to accurately diagnose the problem without guesswork.

[video] Troubleshooting a no convection bake problem on a GE Advantium Speedcooker
We troubleshot a GE Advantium Speedcooker for a no convection bake problem and determined that either the convective heating element or the TCO had failed open. We did all our troubleshooting from the control board without uninstalling the oven. Doing it this way allowed us to diagnose the problem with minimal disassembly. We half-split the problem between the control board and the heating circuit and fixed the problem on the second trip when we returned with the parts.

In this video, I demonstrate some very Non-PCM techniques for troubleshooting an inoperative evaporator fan problem in a Maytag (jazz board) refrigerator.

What we're talking about here is PCM stuff- finding visibly burned triacs or bulging capacitors on a board and replacing it. No troubleshooting, just monkey see monkey do. In their shortsightedness, many guys are spending time on this rather than learning how circuits work and how to troubleshoot. And they think that because they can change a bulging cap, they know electronics.

What's interesting about these two videos is that the repairs done on each is *electrically identical* but the *physical repair looked entirely different* between the two. And that's exactly what you should notice in these two videos.
