Those are the heated grips I bought with my cub cadet . They work great. Sometimes I shut them off when my hands get too sweaty.

Washer Repair / Re: AMANA LW6153WM
« Last post by rockinrobin on September 22, 2014, 12:28:28 AM »
The problem with this washer is it will stop at the rinse cycle and not advance. Can turn dial to all other wash positions and nothing will happen, if I turn dial with out pulling out knob I can get it to run. Also this thing will run from one cycle right on to the next without stopping.  I have replaced the timer with no cure and  I replaced the mixing valves still same problem. Noticed when the timer advances to the rinse I loose voltage to the timer motor.
Any suggestions
Thanks
Could be the Timer Skirt is broken (located under the timer knob)

Dryer Repair / Re: lg dryer dle3733w no power
« Last post by acat13 on September 21, 2014, 11:44:34 PM »
Thanks for the info its very strange but I was doing other work in the basement and saw the dryer complete the cycle with no issues. The next time we went to use it, it was dead again. I rechecked the outlet when it was dead and I have a power issue. Its very strange that pulling the fuse block seems to correct the power at the outlet. Sometimes we have to pull the fuses a couple of times. The fuses are very old so I will start there , then replace the outlet if necessary. Thanks again.

Refrigerator & Freezer Repair / Replacing 2 compressors in SubZero Slide Out Tray
« Last post by etbrown4 on September 21, 2014, 11:24:16 PM »
Curious if anyone has experience with this job.
I'm looking at a model 427, with 2 ref drawers below and a wine cooler above, but the refrigeration arrangement looks the same if there are two lower refrig drawers and a larger refrig box above like the 700tr and others.

I.E. the two compressors and condenser coil are on a slide out tray in the bottom.

First question is the equipment tray slides out about 7". Evaporator hard tubing prevents sliding further. This just allows access to the front compressor.

It appears you have to cut three copper refrig. lines to access both compressors. That is doable. The bigger question is how does one re-plumb that tubing with the tray out in the floor and still get it all to slide back into place?

A video on this would be priceless!

Tips appreciated.

Just so you know, my Neptune is still doing the job. The washer cost me $0.00 and about $50.00 to repair. If you have one that you want to get rid of, let me know.  :popcorn:

Refrigerator & Freezer Repair / Re: Wiring diagram or explanation?

The PDF helped. It is a Cumulative Defrost Clock (Version 1).

I found a similar schematic showing this set up. I was suspecting it was the case, but seeing the schematic helps it make sense.

Chit Chat / Re: Repurposed Frigidaire Washing Machine Motor

Sorry for the double posting But I figured out how to reverse the motor myself. these are very durable motors and seem to outlast their origional purpose so I decided I would give um a second life. At 3/4 hp, they have enough umph to do many other things, shop grinders, disk sanders and many other uses. Here is what I did to get it to run. By the way I found out that It will self-start without the capacitor But I will use it anyway. If you have any questions feel free to ask. O0

Ok so I put the blower motor cover back on as you suggested and It def improved the flame. The flame even ran longer. So, then I reattached the vent hose and ran again. The flame once again ran longer - maybe 2-3 minutes. After the flame went out this time , the igniter started up but the flame would not ignite. I even cleared (shut down) and restarted dryer , same thing the igniter starts up but no flame. After all this I gave it some time -like one hour, tried it all once again and the flame now ignited. Someone else posted the coils may test good but be bad and I think you had mentioned that the coils could have a crack in wire and when they are cold they function - when they get warmer the crack expands apart and then they don't function. (do they get warm or hot?) 

With this being said - does it appear to be the coils - gas valve ?????

thanks again
