Ran the call on that fridge yesterday, Installed new fan, did software update, operation back to normal.  Have another one to do tomorrow, not on the list on the update, but fan motor lookup switches to the same SUM kit.  Thanks again for the help dab147315 !
Dryer Repair / LG True Steam won't stop
« Last post by jessicarabbit97 on June 22, 2016, 06:25:44 AM »
Hi, gentlemen!

My LG True Steam electric dryer will work in its regular cycle - dry the clothes, but then the heat shuts off and the dryer keeps on going.  It won't automatically shut off.  I have to open the dryer door to shut it off.

I tried unplugging it for five minutes, plugged it back in and it didn't help.

The diagnostic says to check filter, but I've always kept it clean, it fits correctly, I even vacuumed out the little bits of debris that fell under the filter (wasn't much).

I'm not all that good at fixing things, but hoping someone can provide an answer for me?! :thanks:
I tried to check voltage on L - N but my meter ends were too short.  I did not have time to make a piece of wire that would go in far enough.  I will try that in the next couple of days.
did l-n have 120 present ? when you jumperd T and H?
 QUOTE I put a jumper between T and H on the ice maker for five seconds and nothing happened. 

That means Ice maker is not working.  Check the connections, good.  Had one with a burnt terminal not long ago. Researching and getting updated on this my self.  Start with the small stuff first and work up to the big.  Emitter passing test.  I try to check out Ice maker first.  My customer sort of done me a favor he bought new Ice maker, didnt work so it might be emitter.

How's the red flapper on the output of the pump? Mine here at home got stuck open by a cherry pit. Sometimes the pit would stay in the bottom of the pump and it would drain fine. Other times it would wedge the flapper and only half drain.

Manual if you have one, I went to the church that has this, and it has defrost problem. Iced over , I defrosted .  I found no derfost heater or termination thing of a ma BObs.  I live 30 miles from where they make it in Greenwood MS.  How does it defrost.

Valve, bypass and heat from condensate.  I only found one device, about a inch, white bar on top, red and blue wire one side, this also went to the funky evap fan.

Had the print, but the defrost heater is not under the evap.

I will be calling them tomorrow.

Man, I still aint seen half of these type units, but as business picks up I better be prepared.  Last three customers were talking about the camera in theRefrigerator  ad.  Thanks for posting this, got it dropped, and ever noted.  Now got to read it.

Thats a handy one, thanks.

Here is as close as I could come ABRS not CRS, which I have trouble with at times.

Had frozed up frige  drain hole, ordering drain kit,.  The little heater riveted to the heater for drain  tube was broke off(factory installed)
Found tech sheet inside.  Here is the rundown.  The door lock was in half way position,(could hear motor ruining) it was trying to go to lock due to a overheat in control cabinet.  Cool fan was not running, dirty. Pulled the fan cleaned, applied test cord ran like champ.

before I did this I was trying to test the fan ON thermal switch, on at 140 degree off at 90.  It seemed not to be turning on.

I had oven on, temp gauge inside, and voltmeter hooked to not reading...120 vac fan sw/therm.  When  temp meter read 140 degrees and above it never closed to give 120,

jumper ed the fan thermal, noticed fan dragging, shut down power, oven warm. Get fan running, remove thermal jumper, install fan, restore power and fan runs like a champ. Thermal must be closed.

Fan on thermal listed as NO LONGER AVAILABLE.  LoL I am about 7 for ten on that this week. & NLA.

I have found some substitutes that will probably be better than what they installed, on at 115 off at 90 for about 13.00 vs the 50.00.

The customer said she had used the broil on the top unit, and she said she had not heard the fan running in a long time.  Your smelling your NO LONGER AVAILABLE 300.00 dollar control board and 500.00 KEY PAD cooking and smoking.  YOU'RE not burning biscuits you're burning your hard earned Dough.

This problem was on the top unit. Thanks for the inputs and hope this helps others in future.
