Range, Oven & Cooktop Repair / Built-in Oven not heating up?
« Last post by Shaitan00 on Today at 08:14:20 PM »
A few weeks ago my Built-in Oven stopped working, I would set the temperature (so you see the target temp in red and bake <on>) and it would sit there for 10-30 seconds then go back to the idle (clock) state. I tried the various modes but the best example is convection where I set it and the fan starts and 10-30 seconds later it just turns off and the screen returns to the clock. As far as I can tell the elements are not working (don't feel hot to the touch) but it doesn't stay on long, there are no errors messages or any other indication, it acts as-if I pressed the CLEAR button essentially.

I tried the breakers (both at the power box and the ones near the unit) and it didn't work, so I left it there for a week. After I tried it (by simply flipping the breakers) again and miraculously it worked ... for 3 days ... since then I have been unable to get it to work again ... same as the original problem.

The unit is a built-in over/convection, on the unit it says (GE profile) and the user manual has the following on the footer of the cover page:
The unit came with my home and I would assume it is at least 5-10 years old.

I would like to try and exhaust my options (DIY) before calling a repair guy (going to cost more than the worth of the oven) or buying a new one (this one is too small so I was hoping to buy a bigger one when I renovate my kitchen - in like 100 years :)).

Any ideas, tests, recommendations would be greatly appreciated.

Sounds like the big nylon gear in the transmission stripped. It is a replaceable part.

Wanted to post a follow-up on this repair. I apologize for the delay.
I replaced the dryer cycling thermostat (3387134) and that fixed the problem!
I also noticed that even with the dryer empty, the flame stayed on for much longer than the 40-60 seconds with the new cycling thermostat.

Washer Repair / Maytag Neptune MAH4000AWW
« Last post by davids426 on Today at 04:14:05 PM »

I'm wondering if anyone can answer a couple of parts questions. My machine crapped out mid-cycle. On the control board resistor Z2 is burned and possible (but really not sure) Q6 Triode.

Can anyone tell me which washer function/component the Z2 resistor protects?  I assume something else have failed taking the resistor with it?

The R11 resistor looks totally fine, so I haven't yet pulled the Door Lock Wax Motor that's seems to be a weakness in these machines.

Thanks for any help or suggestions!

Washer Repair / Washer won't spin
« Last post by lmhansgen on Today at 02:07:36 PM »
I have a Whirlpool Ultimate Care II washing machine that I bought used. It worked fine for some time, then stopped spinning. All other functions work: the motor runs, the machine fills and drains, and it agitates, it just won't spin.

Thanks to the helpful advice on the forums here and linked how-to videos I have successfully replaced (all by myself, look at me go! ;D) the following parts, which were potentially the cause of my problem from what I read:
- the motor coupling
- the drive block
- the clutch

The lid switch seems fine, I can press it with a screwdriver when I open the lid to keep the cycle going and the machine drains. When my machine reaches the spin cycle it makes a loud, high pitched, whirring sound and doesn't spin. I am unable to manipulate the basket to try and get it turning, it just doesn't do anything.

Every time I've completed a repair I've successfully put my washer back together and run a cycle...and nothing has changed. All is the same, still cycles, still won't spin. I'm out of ideas! What else could be the problem?

Thanks in advance!
Thanks, I'll clear vents, and go through bulletin as best I can.  If door seal isn't torn, or pinched, am I okay to assume door seal is still good ?
I have one to diagnose in near future with same problem Heavily frosted evaporator.  Client defrost every couple of weeks by disconnecting power.  What was your conclusion LowSL2 with your unit.
