      [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.

Frigidaire Tonight (ie Phil Collins as an Appliantologist)

Well Ive spared you guys from one of my songs long enough... It's been too quiet here lately so I figured I might as well bring out the ol' drum set...

FRIGIDAIRE TONIGHT (ie Phil Collins as an appliantologist singing a cautionary tale about an unprepared tech)

(click video then scroll down to the lyrics)

 

Got a call to fix a Frigidaire tonight, oh Lord

Should have prepared for this moment at Samurai's site, oh Lord

Here I come to fix your Frigidaire tonight, oh Lord , oh Lord

 

Well you told me your fresh food was freezing, asked if I would lend a hand

I've seen your face before my friend, but I don't know if you know who I am

So when I get there and I saw what it did, I saw it with my own two eyes

So you better wipe off that grin 'cause I don't think I'll win

For this manual is a pack of lies.

 

Got a call to fix a Frigidaire tonight, oh Lord

Should've prepared for this moment at Samurai's site, oh Lord

But I come to fix your Frigidaire tonight, oh Lord

Well I've been dreading of this moment with all my might, oh Lord, oh Lord

 

I must remember, I must remember to test lest I will forget

Check first the damper, the ADC, the fridge thermostat

Still don't know the reason why the fan won't silence up,

it's trying to fool me

Well the answer won't show, and the frost still grows

It's the strangest damn thing to me

 

Got a call to fix a Frigidaire tonight, oh Lord

Should've prepared for this moment at Samurai's site, oh Lord

Here I come to fix your Frigidaire tonight, oh Lord

I've been dreading of this moment with all my might, oh Lord, oh Lord

Still I come to fix Your Frigidaire tonight, oh Lord

Should have prepared for this moment at Samurai's site, oh Lord, oh Lord

Got a call to fix a Frigidaaiirree! Got a call to fix a Frigidaaiiiirrre!

Well I've been dreading of this moment with all my might ight ight ight ight ight ight ight ight ight ight ight ight ight ight ight ight ight ight ight ight ight ight ight iiiiiiight!

Should have prepared for this moment at Samurai's site.... at his siiiiiiiiiite...

Whoops!  I mixed up Genesis with Gemini.  Please edit failed joke accordingly.

 

By the way, I charge extra for exposing butt cleavage.  I don't know what the Blue Book quotes, but you have to pay the price for something this nice.   :moondance:
