Washer Repair / Kenmore Washer starts then stops
« Last post by app1 on July 21, 2016, 10:01:05 AM »
Working on the older Kenmore T/L Washer Model # 110.20862990 and when it starts out to spin it hums then goes into spin and after a short bit it will just stop spinning and hum try to help by turning the drum and it still won't go. We installed new clutch assembly that didn't fix it, nothing between tubs, drive block in great shape, the what I call the spin tube looks good as well. So I am thinking the motor or could the capacitor be weak??   :( :embarassed: HELP!!!! PLEASE!!!! Thanks
Chit Chat / KJT KITCHEN/LABORATORY THERMO/TIMER Temperature modification
« Last post by markcoby98 on July 21, 2016, 09:46:39 AM »
The following is a modification for the KJT KITCHEN/LABORATORY THERMO/TIMER
Model# TA238 unit from China.
This modification will switch
the factory default temperature display from
Centigrade to Fahrenheit. 

You need to open the unit up (4 small Phillips head screws)

See picture # 1 (the small box with the C & F on the board)
You need to short the 2 contacts together in order to switch
the temperature display from Centigrade to Fahrenheit.
(these contacts are very tiny) But you can do a couple different things.

First clean the 2 points well (I used Isopropyl Alcohol)

Now you can use a very small dab of conductive glue
on both contacts, you want to short them together.
This is how my modification worked (permanent) *sort of
See picture #2
If your good at soldering tiny circuits you could solder 2
small wires to the board (one to each tab) and mount a
small slide switch (spdt) in to the back of the case, with this
modification you can switch between Centigrade to Fahrenheit
See picture #3
* (permanent) *sort of - means that with the "glue" modification the glue can be scraped off the board quite
easily with your finger nail.

There is one other annoying little quirk to this marvelous cheap handy little Chinese made wonder is you can't turn it
off, well I mean the unit stays powered on, unless you take
the battery out...
So if this bothers you you can add another switch on the back
of the unit. Simply switch the battery in and out of the circuit

One last thing, the drop or dab of conductive glue is about as
tiny as you can make it, I'm only adding this information in
to impress on any one who wants to try this modification
just how tiny the connection points really are.

One last thing for FYI is that the pictures were taken with
another marvelous cheap handy little Chinese made wonder
A 6 led lit USB Waterproof Endoscope Bore scope Snake Inspection Camera Scope that I bought off Ebay, it works
great, very nifty little $12.00 item!
I used the scope when I put the glue on the board!
In the software there are 3 digital zoom settings
(25, 50, 75 & normal) The 3 pictures were taken at
the normal setting. I think the camera will be very handy
indeed as it has a 15 meter cord!
  I included the camera picture just in case if any one
wondered what I was talking about!
Compressor is running but not cooling. Symptoms started slowly over the last week the freezer would fluctuate between 0 and 40 degrees. The condenser fan and evaporator fan both are running and the coils are clean as a whistle. I went ahead and replaced the Overload and PTC Relay. but the symptoms continued and I noticed the compressor was very hot to the touch. I pulled out the old OHMS meter and tested Common to Start and Common to Run and got .03K on both, then tested run to start (omitting common) and got .03k. This leads me to believe my compressor is bad because I was told that the run and start should OHMS at the addition of the common to both run and start. am I correct in assuming this?

Thank You in Advance......

Would guess you have solved the problem by now.
My money would be on a bad switch.

What did you end up finding wrong with it?
