Range, Oven & Cooktop Repair / Re: GE gas range top takes a long time to light
« Last post by Bailey on April 18, 2017, 09:35:50 AM »
I worked on a Jenn Air cooktop with this problem. All four burners were the same so I replaced the regulator. It didn't change anything so I told her to call a plumber. he found some problem in the gas line.
Looks like Samsung doesn't sell the part you need. You'll need to buy the whole duct assembly.

Since there is no voltage at the wh/blk wire at the lid switch I would say you have a bad connection or wire.

The circuit board just controls the water valve.

Range, Oven & Cooktop Repair / Re: Range ceramic glass top cracked - thermal shock

Post a picture of your cook top. An impact will have a center with several cracks radiating from it. Just one or two cracks with no discernible center is a thermal crack.
Range, Oven & Cooktop Repair / Range ceramic glass top cracked - thermal shock
« Last post by timbob58 on April 17, 2017, 08:34:10 PM »
I bought a new Kenmore range in September. A couple weeks ago, after boiling some spaghetti and removing it from the range the glass top cracked on the same burner used for the spaghetti. The service man said that the damage was not covered under warranty as it was the caused by "impact". There is no doubt that the glass did not crack from the impact of anything, this thing has been babied and cleaned after every use.

The warranty says under the "will not pay for" section: "Cracks in a ceramic glass cooktop that are not a result of thermal shock." After reading what thermal shock is, that seems exactly like what happened. Is there any tell tale sign or signs of cracked glass from thermal shock?

Dishwasher Repair / Frigidaire UltraQuiet III - No Washing Cycle (VIDEO)
« Last post by TheBawse on April 17, 2017, 08:11:42 PM »
Hey guys,

First time posting here.

My parents have a 10+yr old Frigidaire UltraQuiet III Dishwasher that has been running flawlessly up until yesterday. The machine will both fill and drain itself when the dial it set to a specific washing type. Its when the machine has finished the fill cycle and proceeds to start the washing cycle. You hear the dial move onto the next step where a loud click is heard and usually the sound of the pump and washing jets as usual are observed but not this time. Nothing happens...the only thing you can hear is the timer in the dial clicking away. It will continue counting down through the wash cycle until it reaches the drying period where the machine will drain itself. Not sure where to start looking this a switch?...a sensor...or the washing jet pump itself.

I filmed a quick video of what's going on (FYI: there was still water in the unit from the last try so it drains first)
