      [Webinar] Samurai's Sealed System Sleuthing Secrets - 10/30/2017 @7PM ET   10/19/2017

      Having laid some theoretical groundwork in the last webinar, we're going to focus on practical considerations in this one. That means quick n’ dirty techniques for diagnosing sealed system problem using strategically chosen and skillfully interpreted temperature measurements.  Review homework from the first session on 10-2-2017. Home refrigerator practical design and operating rules-of-thumb useful for troubleshooting Practical application exercises Troubleshooting scenario exercise Techniques for making system temperature measurements for determining superheat and subcooling Sealed system diagnosis homework assignment (to be reviewed in the next webinar in this series) If you attended the first webinar in this series, this is your payday! We’re going to apply that keen, penetrating insight you now possess into money- and time-saving shortcuts you can use to diagnose real-world refrigeration systems on service calls.

      [Webinar] Appliantology Workshop   10/22/2017

      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.

  3. Hello, State HW heater 40 gal nat gas. Mod GSX40YBRS Ser# H04A007252. Installed 10/2004. Has been fine since we bought the house in 5/2013. All of a sudden, today, my son (he's 60 miles away) woke up to no hot water. Gas stove and gas hot air furnace are fine. (Not a supply issue). No pilot on HWH. It will restart and appears to go out on safety. I can restart the pilot fine. But when I let go of the pilot override and go to turn the tstat to the desired temp, the main burner fires up, and will run for approx 115 seconds, then I hear the "bink" of the gas solenoid closing and the burner shuts off immediately. It does not fade slowly (as if it was a supply issue), it goes from strong flame to off immediately at approximately the 115 second time mark and the "bink". I had him clean the intake screen at the bottom and it made no difference. When I looked at the main burner flame through a little square glass window (via facetime), it was mostly blue with a little yellow at the tips. It also looked a little wavy or wobbly. I don't have any comparison for it, so I don't know if this is a good flame or not. Also, the camera was not good enough where I could see if the thermocouple is being engulfed by the flame or not. I am going to drive out there tomorrow and have a look-see. I am probably going to take the burner assy out and clean it. Or at least access it to clean it. Do I need to take it out to clean it ? There is also talk of a "ceramic disc" as well, but I can not find it listed on the diagram or parts list. I have not been inside a (residential) gas HWH before so I don't have a lot of familiarity with them. I have a diagram and parts list. Are there any tips, tricks or suggestions that would be worthwhile for getting to the innards of the heater ? I did notice that there are 4 "items" that connect to the control. 1. Main burner (large) tube (gas supply) 2. Orange wire for igniter. 3. Small copper capillary (I presume for thermocouple) 4. Small silver/steel tube about the same size the capillary above. Pilot supply? Are there any other tests or diagnostics can I have him do before I arrive there? Where tomorrow is Saturday, should I take any replacement parts with me (assuming I can get them today) ? Thermocouple perhaps. Thanks for any suggestions you may be able to provide. -Paul.../NH
