Range, Oven & Cooktop Repair / Re: Maytag ignitor issue
« Last post by gacyota on October 23, 2014, 06:07:57 PM »
I have purchased a new ignitor for no reason >:(
I installed the new ignitor and still got no fire. I removed the wire that goes from the ignitor to the circuit board and see no breaks or frayed wire. I removed the circuit board that controls all of the ignitors and I see no burnt resistors or bad cold welds on the board.
I did lite the lower burner 'manually', and it is working properly.
Is there something I can test with my multimeter to pinpoint my issue, or do I just need to install a 'manual' ignitor (my wife would LOVE that)

Hilmor quick change magnetic nutdriver ...a resounding fail .After using this tool very sparingly the last few months the chrome is chipping off the shaft especially around the tip area and the nut drivers are basically rounded which make them useless .The quality is so bad I actually wrote the company .Good idea manufacturing .
Got an email from hilmor today .They are replacing the tool and are paying shipping to send the old one back ,engineering wants to look at it

yes keep in mind oven's AVERAGE a temp... if you preheat to 350 it will preheat higher than 350 on first heat up and so on. Think of it as a sign wave so the average is 350ish. It won't be exact.

all depends on what they mean to high and how they are measuring the temp. In my experience many of these can be fixed by doing a proper(manufacture recommended) temp measurement with a good temp probe and showing the customer the result then explain how terrible the cheap oven thermometers work. Many other times you just need to set the temp offset.
Hey Back again on the board after my April Sealed system issue.  For the past week my ice maker has not been keeping up with making ice.  I did the test/reset and it would dump ice whenever I would remember to make it.  Also, decided to try to figure why some items were freezing in the fridge and found out about a design issue. I just experienced the "infamous Samsung" underneath-the-slide-out-drawer-of-fridge-puddle-of-water-better-check-the-evaporator-drain-because-their-is-a-block-of-ice-covering-it issue.  I am wondering if my cooler freezer temperature could have also been affected by this. I know they are independent systems. Also wondering what the temperature should of the freezer should read after unplugging unit.  I have the standard settings of 38F and -2F.  After working on excess frost removal from the freezer evap temp was initially 42, has been empty and running closed for a few hours and temp now says 27F. Will it really go down to -2F?

Sorry it's wordy but thanks for your help in advance

Frigidaire gas oven too hot, is it wise to replace board and temp probe same time. I have not made it out to the site yet. So I have run no test. Just wanted to get another opinion  8)....#FGF328FSA

Yeah, I know CNET is a load of crap most of the time, but they had a decent article on it.
