      Having laid some theoretical groundwork in the last webinar, we're going to focus on practical considerations in this one. That means quick n’ dirty techniques for diagnosing sealed system problem using strategically chosen and skillfully interpreted temperature measurements.  Review homework from the first session on 10-2-2017. Home refrigerator practical design and operating rules-of-thumb useful for troubleshooting Practical application exercises Troubleshooting scenario exercise Techniques for making system temperature measurements for determining superheat and subcooling Sealed system diagnosis homework assignment (to be reviewed in the next webinar in this series) If you attended the first webinar in this series, this is your payday! We’re going to apply that keen, penetrating insight you now possess into money- and time-saving shortcuts you can use to diagnose real-world refrigeration systems on service calls.

http://appliantology.org/files/file/1501-lg-fdbm-lfc25776-refrigerator-service-manual/

teach a man to fish..... searching example :

You needed a manual quickly and waited some time to get the info, all the while the manual and info has been right under your nose.

Next time, try searching the forum and the download section using the first 4 or five characters of your model number and add an "*"(wildcard) at the end such as, "GLDT696*". Make sure you use the Appliantology search box at the top right corner when searching using a numerical string with a wildcard and make sure the box besides it says "forums" for a forum search and then "download" for a search of the downloads section.

For instance searching Gldt696* i found a post that led me to this minimanual

http://appliantology...her-minimanual/

and this topic that has some useful info

http://appliantology...6t*#entry250644

If I want more to find more info I just remove one or more digits from my search string and try... maybe "GLDT*"..... I get the same results. And I find that mini manual when I search the downlaod section.

Maybe there is a manual that covers the entire series and is named "GLD"? I am not sure, I don't even know that is the name of the series but what the heck, I'll try it. So I search forums and download section using "GLD*".

Searched forums and nothing came up... can't be... oops i forgot to switch the box from" this topic" to "forums".... ok... 112 threads came up.. scroll through them and look for some interesting stuff... uh oh there is a service bulletin... Didn't list my exact model but I'll check it out anyway.

Now I'll switch the box to downloads and search "GLD*".... Ok..10 results. There is the mini manual I found earlier... and lookie here! There is a manual named " GE and Profile GLD GLC GDWT PDW Dishwashers Technical Service Guide".... http://appliantology...-service-guide/

Ok great... but my exact model is not specifically mentioned in that guide but maybe GE simply uses the mini manual to update this technical guide... maybe not.. but I will check it out shortly

But right now, gonna keep looking at the search list... there is another bulletin... gonna see what that's about.... etc

Okay, now I want to bolster my overall knowledge of this issue.. so this time I will use the google search box located top middle of the page and search " GE dishwasher dead" I get 112 results including http://fixitnow.com/...washer-repair/. May not apply but who knows.

I see another post about GE Monograms recall due to a thermal fuse issue causing breaker trips... not relevant... good to know but it got me thinking.. does this thing have an internal fuse... Check wiring diagram.. No problem.

here's another thread http://appliantology...-pdw9280j00ss/. It involves PDW model... but didn't that tech guide I found include PDW series along with my series? hmmmm let's check out that thread.... something about a dead machine caused by a shorted touchpad.. I'll keel that in mind.

Anyhow, this is how you can use this site to the fullest... hope that helps!

That helps, and I did find this lg pretty easy using the wild card.  The kitchen aid, i found  a manual, but not right models..  there are so many models and changes it still makes my head spin..lol..  The tip on searching with google while staying on site that I need to learn.  I have several others i am searching for and I was able to find them.  Thanks for your help and explaining how to better search.  I also have to figure out a good system to file them in , on computer..  This manual covers mod#s, publication #,  this model was in production at about 2008- 20010..  I'm not that good at admin, file organization, I have to push myself, and think harder, not a natural talent..  getting better and need a mentor, or good advice here.

 

I get on the computer and people ask me what did I get done today, fixed.. I say nothing but I have researched, how to fix them, where to get the parts, and ran ads to sell what I have in stock..  but made no cash today.  I bought 3 stoves, 4 friges and 7 washers and dryers, so far have 4 fixed (stove, three dryers)

 

Trying to load my computer for the next couple of days of battle and get parts ordered.  The friges if I can fix them will make good money, but I'm still learning a whole bunch on them..

 

Thanks Durham..

curjones, your title to this thread is EXACTLY how I do it.

 

For example: 

LG Refrigerator LFC255776SB

LG = Manufacturer

 

Refrigerator = Type appliance

 

LFC255776SB = Model number

 

Customer calls, gives you the above 3 words and within a few seconds, you will be able to see if you have the service material in your library.

 

Consistency is the key here.  Do NOT mix them up. It is second nature now when I download a weeks worth of material.

 

Manufacturer FIRST.  Type appliance SECOND.  Model # THIRD.  Each and every time.  Very easy searching once you get this system down.

 

My ENTIRE library (close to a couple thousand manuals, tech sheets, service bulletins, pictures, videos etc) is organized this way.  Sort them by pdf, jpeg, power point, word docs, videos also.  Takes a little time, but well worth the effort.

 

Hope this helps.

Very helpful, I started sending a copy of the down load page to one notes, so for pages , tech sheets that cover mulit models, i could go back and maybe later put them in too.  We have to learn to be good record keepers.  More to study, search.  How to put it on cloud, or device. access it.  Not just the manuals, but parts, invoice, inventory, receipts.  I have to fix and sell some units to get the cashflow up to get the nice toys (tools).

 

Thanks for the input.

My files are stored in drop box folders like Beam's. I use evernote (similar to onenote) as an index to point me to the correct file. For instance, I do a repair.In evernote I. record customer's name, model Nunber of appliance... maybe a picture or two. Record notes and then link the dropbox file.

This way all of my notes and observations on a particular model are searchable. I only need one file name in dropbox for a manual although the manual covers many models. Evernote points me to that particular file. Any updated info or great points I find here on Appliantology, I place in evernote as well. I also make evernote entries simply listing a model number like Lg lfc25579 then link the dropboxfile to the lfc25576 manual. I might even copy the entire model listings from the first page of a manual and paste it in evernote and link the dropbox file.

For me, using Evernote/onenote and dropbox this way doesn't require as much rigidity and becomes comprehensive and fluid.
