I asked you last week about a Kenmore upright freezer that I determined to have a bad compressor. I got there and the temp in the freezer was 68*. I was told that it stopped freezing a few days ago, ( probably more than that ) and so I checked the evap/fan and it was working fine. So, I pulled it out and checked the compressor and it was so hot, I could barely touch it. I unplugged it for about 15 minutes and put a hard start on it, because the relay was bad. Let it run for about 20 minutes. Both the compressor and hard start were hot.
I was schooled to think that if the compressor is that HOT, and has been running like that for a while; that it’s NO GOOD. The reason is, as I was told, that the high temp breaks down the oils, etc in the compressor.
My customer had another freezer ( chest type ) and it was also NOT freezing. I opened the compressor panel and checked the temperature of the compressor and it was HOTTER than her upright. ( sho has a coffee plus shop ). I told her that both freezers were no good.
Anyways she called her refrigeration service people out. He told her, that the only thing wrong with the chest freezer is that it needs to be defrosted.
QUESTION: was I schooled correctly to think that if the compressor runs that hot for an ” unknown ” period of time that it is NO GOOD?

Please advise of fault code 8E on a Samsung washer

I went trough the diagnostic mode and ran a few tests. In the diagnostic mode it starts up normally, fills with water, empties water and spins normally at a slow/medium speed. The error codes that show are F1 E2 which from what I have read is a problem with the Drive motor or Main electronic control board. When I go to calibrate it starts to spin for a split second then it comes to sudden stop as if it gets stuck and the lid lock light starts to blink. This all started because when we try to run the washing machine and it would stay in sensing mode with the lid lock flashing while making a loud humming noise. I eventually smelled an electrical burning smell after leaving it in sensing for several minutes. After attempting this again I am noticing that after it goes through the sensing mode a couple of times and it wants to start up but it looks like it gets stuck because it comes to a sudden stop just like it does when its trying to calibrate.

Could this be the drive motor or main electronic control board?

How can I winterize my dishwasher for my summer cottage. I drain all the water from the system and use the air compressor to finalize so no water is in the lines. RV antifreeze to the traps.
Can you assist? I saw many of your you tube videos for how tos but not on the dishwasher winterization
Thanks

The fridge temp is to high. I found on the lower left side of the fridge a small block of ice, where the vent should be. I thawed out the ice turned the fridge back on, and felt no air flow ( either wat ).
The top left side vent was blowing cool air. Not a lot of air flow, but I could feel air moving.

I put the washer in diagnostic mode and then set it to where rinse was selected to calibrate it. It finished with lid locked flashing. I kept going and put it in manual test mode where spin/done where illuminated. I followed that with the diags where wash/spin were illuminated and hit start …it did not spin at all …only made noises. Please advise.

Samsung dw 1E error code, model DW80F800UWS/AA, serial B009g9md604628d
This is supposed to be a high temp heating error. Had schematic for DMT800 series dishwasher with me. This wire diagram did not match the wire diagram on the main pcb cover on dw. Did not see thermistor listed on dw wire diagram on unit.
Heating element had 12 ohms, but no power going to it in quick wash cycle. Could not get it into diagnostic mode.
What should I be checking? I am guessing you need to pull the unit to get to components like LG brands?

Hello,
We went out to service a samsung fridge that the bottom freezer door won’t open. We thought the railing might be frosted over and unpluged the fridge in order for it to defrost, it has been two days since and it still wont open. Any suggestions?

I have been wrestling with this for the past two days – ever since my wife noticed that everything in the fridge was frozen. This is a Samsung unit with the fridge on top and the freezer on the bottom. The freezer is working just fine and the freezer display agrees with a separate freezer thermometer I put inside the freezer. The fridge side, however, is set at 38*, but the internal thermometer says it’s about 12* in there!

I downloaded the service manual for this model fridge, but it is rather poorly written. I checked for trouble codes, but I didn’t have anything that matched what was in the service manual. On start up my display will completely light up for a second or two, then go dark and then a number “3” will pop up of the refrigerator side of the display. Then the display will show the actual temperatures of the freezer and fridge before going back to displaying the selected temperature settings.

A quick online search indicates a bad thermistor in the refrigerator section. I am a little wary because on start up, the fridge displays actual temperature quite accurately. Some thermometer inside the fridge is working. I get that a thermistor is not a thermometer and that if the thermistor is responsible for making the fridge self-defrost, then I guess it would make sense.

I suspect that the fridge evaporator is completely iced over. In an effort to remedy this, I went into the “forced operation” mode and selected fridge defrost. I’m currently listening to my bridge beep constantly as I wait to see if this does anything.

Food safety is something that I really obsess about and getting this fridge back to normal as quickly as possible is a huge priority for me.

Any help you can offer is greatly appreciated!

Top freezer working fine. Bottom fridge is too warm. Watched your video, took apart top panel, evaporator fan motor not working. dial switch in fridge makes no difference. I tested wires to evaporator motor fan, not getting any voltage to fan motor? The fridge has the dial switch that says “coldest to lowest”. took that panel down, it has the thermostat dial switch, and there is a white square thing with wiring harness connected to it next to the dial switch.
What would be stopping power from reaching the evaporator fan motor? FYI, this all happened after a power pole was hit in neighborhood, causing outage/spike. The condensor and it’s fan is running fine, freezer is working fine. Just not the fridge.
