      Information is the name of the game in the appliance repair trade today.

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. Hi Folks, I could really do with a bit of help in diagnosing a Bosch microwave issue The model is: HBC86P753B/01 Combi Oven and Microwave. https://i.pinimg.com/originals/5d/7b/5d/5d7b5dd4a9d9cec46429852d96d23147.jpg The problem only affects the microwave section: The symptoms are as follows: I power on and select microwave at any power level setting, adjust timer to 1 minute and press start, The light comes on fan runs for about 3 seconds and then display resets back to clock. I am electronically qualified and aware of the high voltage risks, so dismantled to investigate yesterday. Magnetron shows no evidence of cracked magnets or distorted structure. Measures just under 1 ohm across heater with no leakage between either of the heater terminals and the case. If I run with the cover off, there are no sparks, unusual sounds or smells of burning. The conventional oven responds correctly to door switch when opened. This model uses an inverter PCB rather than the traditional capacitor and diode arrangement, so wondered if this module could be the cause. As the part is quite expensive, I thought it would be sensible to seek advice first. Are there any other items to check, or has anyone experience of this module failing? https://www.partmaster.co.uk/control-unit/product.pl?pid=1492093&query=HBC86P753B Many Thanks Regards Mike
  2. I have a Whirlpool dryer and is doing a funny thing. What is doing is it works for a while and then just stops if I give it about two months rest it will start working again. But then after a couple of uses, in the middle of use, it would just stop working. Of course, I can’t be sure of two months is the exact time. Right now if I try to start the dryer with the button on top, what it does is make a loud clink like it’s trying to start, but nothing happens. Could someone suggest something or troubleshooting steps or some things to look at? Thanks Spec Whirlpool LGR3624EQ0 Natural Gas Manifold Pressure 3 inch BTU/HR 22000 120 Volts 60 Hz 6 Amps
  3. Washer will stop at random points. Diagnostic mode did not show error codes. I ran the Automatic Diagnostic Test Mode. Unfortunately, I did it incorrectly, there was laundry in the machine. At the C9 step, there was constant grinding/rattling noise. After this test the machine registered a 4A error code. I do not see this code anywhere in the tech sheet. When starting a cycle there is the same grinding/rattling noise. The suspension rods and springs are rusty but they are intact. I posted about this machine previously and found out the tub was stuck. we have been using this machine since March with reasonable success. Any advice/suggestions are appreciated!
  4. I realize that my washing machine is no spring chicken, but since I live alone and only do a load every 10 days or so, overall it hasn't seen as much use as it would otherwise with a normal sized family. Recently I had to replace the coupler thanks to a seriously out of balance load. That repair was uneventful, and I was able to run one load normally. However, since that one load the machine has taken to shutting off at random points during the entire cycle. When it does that, I will unplug the machine, push in the knob and wait for 5 to 10 minutes. Then I plug the machine back on, pull out the knob and the machine resumes running as if nothing happened. It will usually do this two or three times during a cycle. I've checked all the connectors (they're on tightly) and the lid switch (nothing wrong there), so I'm baffled by this problem. Does anybody have any idea what might be going on? TIA!
  5. Maytag MAH3000AWW stops

    I have read the forums on this Maytag MAH3000AWW Serial 37299671WD. washer stopping. Ours stops and shuts itself off during random cycles (my wife thinks all cycles, not just spin). It sounded like motor/motor control, so I checked it out using the link. The phases of the motor all check out. Everything seems OK with 2.2 ohms in phases B and C. Could it be the door locking mechanism?
