Dual Cool Fridges - any training available?
« on: August 20, 2015, 09:42:57 AM »
Seems to be a lot of problems with the dual cool units.  So far I've worked on Samsung and GE (probably Samsung built) versions.  Have tried to find training as there doesn't seem to be a lot of knowledge from my peer group on how the things work.  Anyone got anything on these dual evap units?

Thanks

So again guys - anyone have any manuals or service sheets they can share on Dual Cool. 

For the United Servicers guys, I went to one training session and it was a waste of money.  That's my opinion.  The Bosch guy was OK, the Frigidaire guy was OK, the Whirlpool guy sucked and that was it.  No Samsung, LG or anyone else.  What they gave was cursory at best and that's not training.  That's marketing with tossing a few tidbits of info here and there to get my money for me to show up.  Again, my opinion.

Awesome.  Glad to hear you found it worthwhile.  And for me, it wasn't all bad.  I enjoyed interacting with other techs as well, but again, I felt the training segments were very cursory and in the case of Whirlpool, laughable.  Further, with Mr. Appliance, my competitor, being one of the sponsors and the Blue Book and USA's flat rate pricing schema being heavily promoted, I felt I was being marketed and I felt the deck was somewhat stacked against me as a single-owner, non-authorized, non-sales servicer.  Again, my opinion.

Yes you have to read what it says under agenda. Some are factory trainers and some are not. Had a guy do a training that was another Tech if I remember correctly, still had good info. He did a LOT of Warranty and out of warranty work for them in a large city. Sometimes the trainings covers stuff we have been working on for a year or two and know most of it already.
