      [Webinar] Appliantology Workshop   11/09/2017

      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.

Humble request for Service Manual - KitchenAid KEMC37K

Recommended Posts

primemover

Greetings cohort!

I bought a KitchenAid KEMC378K Build-In Electric Double Oven circa 2007. It is a combo oven plus microwave/convection oven.

I bought it off the floor at a deal-o-matic at the deepest of discounts. It kinda works but I am in search of the service manual and any tech notes (and any recall info, too, if any exist. I do already have the user manual.

Thanks for helping me, a humble but quick learning grasshopper! My beer fund contribution will catapult from my deck as soon as I get my Paypal coordinates computed.

This was a floor model, missing everything, including the trim strips but the user guide was with it. The place that the model number should be on the oven (Lower right edge of oven, on the lip beside the door gasket) does _not_ have a model or serial number. It appears that sticker has been cut and most of it pulled away.

The Model number listed on the invoice/proof of purchase is "KEMC378KCH" (only 2 additional letters)

FYI: Serial number XMT4320561

Thank you for your help!

A humble, thirsty grasshopper~

sometimes model & serial numbers are removed from "salvaged units" to prevent warrantee claims ...

no ... CH

WH is white

There a few different Tech Sheets for the revision number

RegUS,

Thanks for the help. I got the pdf-based Job Aid downloaded just fine.

It may be tonight's beer-induced stupor but I can't find the secret decoder ring that let's me get past the 404: Not Found HTML error when I try to open the Tech Sheet link. Can you give me a 'lil push off my beer stool?

Also, can you give me a sentence or two on how the store or distributor or manufacturer comes up with a 'salvaged major appliance?' I realize the result is an appliance that can have warranty claims.

Thanks again!

OK, tech sheet link fixed ...

"salvaged unit" ... may have taken (good) major internal parts and (good) external case parts

from two or more damaged units and "built" a working unit ...

I have such an LG Dryer ... no problems
