The instruction sheet that comes with the Jazz Board(control board)says the technician has to programme the code number into the Jazz board,otherwise the fridge will not work.That means there is some other board to memorise this code number,and make sure the correct code # is in.I cannot find this extra board.Any body knows where this board is?If this exra board is defective,what will hgappen?

So rubber or nylon would be better?

I don't use anything but stainless because that is simply the best.  I can't stop a rat from chewing through it, though I would guess it is rare.  I bet mice don't do too well.

I have seen too many leaks from the plastic tubing to ever use that.  I have also seen where rubber hoses crack and split from age, rub through via vibration, or melt.

I'm happy to argue my case in court that, whatever might have happened, I used the best available.

But, yeah, nothin's perfect.

I always use stainless steel, 'cause rodents.


I had a call for leaking fridge a few weeks ago. The rat took off across the kitchen and under the dishwasher when I pulled out the fridge. It chewed through the stainless braided supply line.

My washer worked flawlessly for about 3 weeks and then started showing the same symptoms as before. So I took the part number that Scrapiron suggested and did some searching for a replacement. After doing some online searches I was unable to find that exact part number. A few of my searches ended up with 89814 and 89867. A vendor on eBay and one of Amazon assured me that 89814 would be the exact replacement for mine so I ordered it.

It arrived and I once again tipped my washer over and went to work on it. The replacement went surprisingly quick with just a 3/8" socket wrench and long flat screwdriver to pry the old part off the shaft. She's singing the right tune again and functioning properly.

My friends all think I'm the cheapest person in the North for not just replacing my Washer/Dryer. Truthfully I considered that notion but everything I look at seems like it wouldn't last 4.3 years let alone 43 years. As long as I can find parts and good people to help me repair that thing, I'm happy.

Thanks again!

this house has natural gas.  My tech said the orifice sizes are correct.

Not sure where you are, but out in the sticks I see gas products quite often that are nat. gas and the folks have an l.p. tank right out side and the unit wasn't converted properly.

Refrigerator & Freezer Repair / Re: how do you know if the frost free is working
« Last post by afterblast on October 14, 2017, 08:44:31 PM »
Is the fridge cooling properly?  In normal operation the evaporator will have a very light coating of frost on it, the auto defrost/frost free feature will keep it from building up large amounts of frost..  if it wasn't working properly then the evaporator will build up frost till it looks like it's a solid block of snow and won't allow air through..

Did you check orifice sizing?
Well, we replaced the igniter assembly already cause the igniter was broken. We assumed that was the only problem. The igniter assembly has the orifices on it. I will compare them to the original.
You may be onto something
