      Information is the name of the game in the appliance repair trade today. Appliantology is a powerful information tool for the professional appliance repair technician. But just like with any of the more capable tools in your tool bag, many of the more powerful features are hidden from you unless you "read the manual." Ugh! Who wants to do that? Well, this is one time when you don't have to! In this webinar, Team Samurai will personally walk you through the site and show you many of the useful and powerful features that even long-time users probably never knew existed.

  1. My 5-yr old Samsung French Door/Bottom Freezer model: RF217ACWP has started to slow its ice production. The ice maker was already replaced once a year ago by a Sears tech due to some broken part I can't remember which part. Recently the outdoor temps have been warm for southern New England above 93-degrees for the last week or so and humidity has been in the oppressive range (mid to upper 60s) as well. Not sure if this has any affect at all on this issue. At any rate, my wife and I are using more ice lately and it doesn't seem to be able to keep up. Is there a filter that needs to be checked or changed? I am not aware of one. I also do not use an external filter. If there is an internal filter, where is it located? If I need to replace the ice maker, does anyone know if there is an available unit that makes something other than half-moon shaped ice cubes? What about a test button? Where is it located? I've read something about not pressing it more than once every 24 hours. Again, it is still making ice. It just appears to be producing less than normal. It could be my imagination as well. We may just be using more than normal. I appreciate any thoughts on this.
  2. I have an Amana ABD2233DES refrigerator with a bottom mount freezer. Fridge compartment was warm, compressor was running and the damper was open no air was coming in. Fridge had some ice on the center-rear of its floor (like where the cold air should have been coming up from the freezer compartment. Freezer had a lot of ice frost buildup on coils. Thanks to the videos I discovered the tech sheet and put it into service test mode. Defrost Thermostat was S" for open. I observed the damper door opening and closing. I put it into forced defrost mode. Compressor shut off and the defroster heating rod came on. There was so much ice I had to go through about 7-8 forced defrosts and I used a heat gun to melt. I have ordered a new jazz board. My question is: While I am waiting for my board I need to continue to use the fridge and I'd rather not have to throw away any more food! My plan is just to force defrost at least 1x per day. But then I realized that I have no idea if that will be enough! I guess I never really noticed/paid attention to the defrost cycles before so how do I know if the defrost cycle is continuing to fail to initiate on its own? About how often does a fridge operating properly, defrost? If I find that there is a bunch of frost buildup and/or the fridge isn't keeping cool - can someone point me to the way to do a longer/deeper forced defrost? Is doing manual forced defrosts until my board shows up in a week a wise strategy? thanks all, Steve
  3. May I have a manual for this refrigerator. Temps have climb to defrosting in a few hours is complaint.
  4. This is a bottom freezer type fridge that has the icemaker and bin in the door of the refrigerator. The unit is no longer making ice. Thank you if you can provide the service manual for this refridge or the icemaker.
  5. May I request a service manual & tech sheet for a Kenmore bottom freezer modle #596.72912200. Thank you, Patricio
