Range, Oven & Cooktop Repair / electrolux EW30GC60PS big burner problem
« Last post by schleven on October 13, 2017, 09:23:41 PM »
Customer has this stovetop and my tech went out there and said it had no spark to biggest (center) burner.  He changed the igniter assembly and it now sparks, but won't light.

I am going out there with him tomorrow, but its one of those burners with two tubes coming off the valve.  If its not getting enough gas, it has to be a problem with the orifice clogged, a blockage, or a valve, I assume.

Anything else I should look for?

For my Bosch Ascenta dishwasher Model No. SHE3AR56UC/16 , solution was to replace the control board within the door with Bosch Part No. 00705306 ( Part Number:    AP5306751).  The part is referred to as a "control unit" on the website.  See:

Bosch part no. 00705306

Range, Oven & Cooktop Repair / IKEA Built in Microwave Unresponsive
« Last post by atem2144 on October 13, 2017, 03:57:09 PM »
I am attempting to repair an IKEA built in microwave model number IBMS1455DS00, made by Whirlpool.  It is unresponsive, but it does have power going to it, when you turn the dial you can hear it beep with each click, that is all that it does.  The display is out and none of the buttons work.  I think I have narrowed it down to either power board or user interface.  The power board is on backorder and my supplier has no idea when he will get it.  I can not find any literature on this unit.  Any help would be greatly appreciated. 
Washer Repair / ge top load washer thumping sound when spinning
« Last post by briand805 on October 13, 2017, 02:29:40 PM »
Edit age of unit. washer is at least 2 years old.
I purchased yesterday a Ge top load washer model gtwn4950l0ws for $60 Yesterday Of the facebook market place from a woman who assured me several times the washer had no issues. Well I learned on my first test run that was not the case. The washer began making a not great noise during the spin cycle. a banging almost if unbalanced but didnt appear to be.
So today took it apart and had a look. It would appear the tub/ tub bearing isn't seated on the shaft all the way? there is a bit of oil i see also.
EDIT: I also am seeing what i guess may have been dried oil in the bottom of the unit radiating outward.

Everything else looked ok. the belt, straps and suspension seemed ok.

Any help/advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for your time.

I work on washers and dryers and primarily dryers. The older Maytag, Kenmore, Whirlpool and Speed Queen units are easy to work on and not quite as expensive to work on. The newer units of any kind are more difficult and expensive to fix due to the PCB's. The GE and Frigidaire/Electrolux are OK when they are new but more difficult and expensive.  Speed Queen units are probably the best and most reliable to work on . I just recently had  exposure to a Fisher and Paykel dryer and it was a beautiful machine but very  complicated and parts are very expensive.  I dont have much experience on fridges so I cant comment on them.
