      [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.

Defrost Terminator should open at 59F

this is a different manual ..

each manual is about 4 or 5 MB

may take a while to download

take a close look at the Terminals of your Defrost Heater ...

thanks reg. got it downloaded.if it opens at 59 degrees.it should open at the room temp i tested it in. the amnual says bimetal closed at 104 f opens at 140 f. what is that about?. i get 40 ohms on the heaters through the main board. but i will look at the ends of the heaters. i'm going to replace defrost stat and defrost sensor first.also i'll try force defrost to make sure the heaters come on, but that doesn't mean they'll come on automatically though. i want to rule out all before looking at replacing the board.

i know ,its confusing, not opening till 140 f explains why i couldn't get it to open even with a hair dryer. but i still don't get what closed at 104 f means?.i'm beginning to dislike this fridge.i don't go back till tuesday, that will give me time to study the manual.btw the stat is one of those ones that is inside a see through plastic envelope type thing.

once it opens at 140F, it won't close again till it cools to 104F
