Samurai Appliance Repair Man posted a blog entry in Samurai Appliance Repair Man's BlogWe have have a huge and growing library of technical literature here at Appliantology. If, after searching the Downloads section using the techniques shown in the how-to search video, you're not finding what you need, I have a trick for you that applies to all Whirlpool-built appliances, including those that are Kenmore-branded Whirlpool-built. Whirlpool-built appliances include the following brands: Whirlpool Kitchenaid Jenn-Air Amana Maytag some Crosley many Kenmore models (indicated by the three-digit prefix) For these brands, you want to find the PUB number of the tech sheet. This is important because the same PUB number can apply to multiple different models. So searching by model number won't necessarily find the tech sheet PUB number you need. Here how to find the PUB number for the tech sheet: Open a new browser tab. Go to the Sears site and paste your model number into the search box You'll pull up several thumb nails of parts diagrams. Usually on the first page, the tech sheet part number (what we call the PUB number here at Appliantology) will be listed. It won't necessarily be the first item-- keep reading down the list. Copy that PUB number into your browser (you don't really need me to tell you how to mark, copy, and paste with your browser, do you?) Switch back to the Appliantology browser tab, select "Files" in the site search box and paste in that PUB number. If something comes back in the search results, that's the file you need. If you're still not finding the tech sheet, then post a request in the Appliance Service Manual Requests forum and we'll get it for you. Including the PUB number you found helps us help you. Go git 'em!
Is there a setting I can change on my end to include other search areas (i.e. "Files") in the dropdown so I can search downloads direct from the homepage? As it is now you have to go to advanced search and continue from there; no big deal when you're in a good cell signal area, but one less page to load in a bad cell area = faster service call. (More for those "oh by the way" type add-ons where I don't have model number ahead of time and have the service sheet already downloaded on my phone, lol) Thanks for the update, it is nice not having to "request desktop site", zoom in, and then do the search.
