    Who: All tech members at Appliantology: Professional Appliantologists, Senior Appliantology Fellows, Legacy Techs, and Master Samurai Tech Alumni at Appliantology and all students enrolled at the Master Samurai Tech Academy. What: We’re going to talk about some basic electric circuit topics and troubleshooting techniques that many techs are a little shaky on: Voltage vs. voltage drop- commonly misunderstood and misused but understanding the distinction is crucial for accurately troubleshooting AC circuits. Most of the time, we’re troubleshooting circuits composed of loads and switches so if you learn how to troubleshoot just two things- loads and switches- you can troubleshoot virtually any appliance circuit you encounter. Jumper wires and cheater cords- essential components in any troubleshooting arsenal- we’ll look at when, how, and why to use each. Mastering basic concepts like these goes a long way to becoming a competent, consistent troubleshooter. When you have a solid grasp of these foundational concepts, schematics stop being a mystery and become an invaluable diagnostic tool. When: Saturday, April 13th, 2019, at 10:00 AM Eastern Time (adjust your time zone accordingly) Where: All of our web meetings are powered by Join.me. For the connection details, see below.

    Who: All tech members at Appliantology: Professional Appliantologists, Senior Appliantology Fellows, Legacy Techs, and Master Samurai Tech Alumni at Appliantology and all students enrolled at the Master Samurai Tech Academy. What: Many techs have trouble interpreting a schematic diagram and understanding how to use it for troubleshooting. In this webinar, we'll use as case studies a Samsung electric dryer and a GE electric oven with 6 elements and 8 relays. If time permits, we'll review AC voltage difference and how L1 and L2 work together to create a 240 VAC voltage DIFFERENCE (key word there) between two points to make electrons move in the circuit.

  3. Troubleshooting is the big missing skill among appliance techs today. This is the skill that distinguishes parts changing monkeys (PCMs) from Master Samurai Techs. It's the difference between a drunken street brawler making monkey jabs versus a trained MMA fighter making kill shots. PCMs will thrash about wildly, monkey-jabbing at components hoping to get lucky and usually end up getting their asses kicked. Anyone can monkey jab and the sad truth is that this is the dominant practice of the appliance repair trade today. It doesn't have to be that way. Anyone who wants to can learn how to make kill strikes like a Master Samurai Tech. Master Samurai Techs don't rely on luck. They have a plan of attack, a strategy. They deploy precision kill strikes that have been honed in the Dojo-- training at the Master Samurai Tech Academy and in the Office Hours webinars-- and systematically dominate the appliance. Whether you're troubleshooting a simple GE dryer with just a mechanical timer or a Sub-Zero refrigerator with a microcomputer board, multiple sub boards and two different compressor technologies, the troubleshooting procedure is the same. That's the Ten-Step Tango: a structured, disciplined procedure for solving problems. In our Office Hours webinars, we've begun a series of workshops on the Ten-Step Tango, applying it to different troubleshooting scenarios on real-world appliances. We started off by introducing the Ten-Step Tango procedure and then applied it to simple appliances (no control boards, just mechanical controls, like timers). Then, in the next workshop, we kicked it up a notch and troubleshot appliances with multiple control boards, digital communications, hoodoo, voodoo, and all kinda weird stuff. The workshop webinar recordings, along with all the other Office Hours webinar recordings, are available for Professional Appliantologists and Master Samurai Tech Academy students to watch at the links below: Master Samurai Tech Academy Students: http://mastersamuraitech.com/webinar-recordings/ Mr. Appliance® Academy Bundle 1 Students: http://mrappliance.mastersamuraitech.com/appliance-repair-course-support/student-forums/forum/webinar-recordings/ Professional Appliantologists: https://appliantology.org/topic/58003-webinar-recordings-index-page/ The next workshop will be in January 2017 and will be announced here at Appliantology as well as in the MST-Appliantology newsletter.
