      [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.

There's only one instance which there needs to wires cut.

If the refrigerator main board is mounted vertically (as shown below), AND there are wires in both

pin 1 and pin 2 of J1, Cut the wire in J1 pin 2.

Note: When cutting the wire, leave enough wire to reconnect if necessary!

Taken from this pointer.
