Help others and post about your service calls.

When posting a new topic it would be helpful to include the model number of the appliance you serviced and the numbers from any parts you used during the repair.

Great idea for a new board!
I look forward to reading about other techs service calls and will be happy to contribute post about my service calls too.

This new board will be a great learning experience for all of us.

That's what I was thinking too.
Such as same part failing in many different models or same models with repeat problems, etc...

So even if someone else has already posted about a service call you have also done yourself it would still be helpful to start a new topic and post about your own service call too.

This could even be helpful to appliance manufactures for data on appliances that are our of warranty.
I know for a fact the people from Whirlpool read our forum.

I work with a local company that does alot of product recal's and I know some of the work we see should fall under the CPSC but for whatever financial reason it doesn't but the same thing is a problem again and again...

ie: we see LG dishwasher's with the bad motor error code, when we know to check the wiring in the door first.  Cabrio washer's original board's a little touchy with the RPS and sometime's clean contact's and good to go...etc

This could also turn into a nice library tool when there are enough post's to search and cross reference problems...Search...GE ...washer doesn't agitate...come up with a few post's from actuall tech's with remedies...just a thought.

Looking forward to see how it work's, I will post...maybe pull my old record's out and put some down too when I get a chance.

Looks like GE reads the site too from the looks of this post.

Early 1970 I worked for Amana New York as parts clerk/shop mechanic. The service manager tells me to meet with a technician who replaced a compressor on a BC20 and no matter what he did it would not pull down to temperature.  in fact the freezer was getting warm.
When I arrived I looked at the condenser and saw "Frost". I asked him did he bother to look at this and he said he thought the condenser would frost and eventually it would back up to the evaporator.  :D
I showed him that he had crossed the lines.  :rofl: :rofl: :rofl:

I've been noticing the plastic or teflon coating on the ice maker molds is separating from the mold assembly. Just wondering if anyone else has noticed the same.

I know wildimaginations got a chance to look at this but I thought I would throw it out there and see what other tech's think. GE Americana Model #A4420GDTAWW selector on single lever dispenser is Water and Cubed Ice. It starts dispensing Crushed ice and can't get it back to cubed ice. It has all the components for crushed ice except one, a selector. I've never seen that before.

This is awesome, I am running two companies in the NOLA area and have lots of tips, and am always looking for more.
  About to start my day with a touch screen GE harmony Profile dryer.  Not looking forward to it.  One of our techs already replaced the motor and the unit still won't spin.  He couldn't do it, so now I got to go clean up. 
 
Noticed (DPGT750ECPL) gave no results on this site.  Maybe I'll have something to post on it later.
