253.22742410 Kenmore Upright Freezer Not Powering On

This Freezer was not running at all when I arrived, I checked for 120 volts to it, which it was getting. I then unplugged it from the wall outlet and removed the lower panel inside the freezer and ohm tested the temperature control thermostat, with it in the on position, and got nothing. No continuity between the two electrical terminals on it.

I ordered a new temperature control thermostat and went back to replace it and it fired up and started cooling.

Here’s the temperature control thermostat for this model:

796.80272900 Kenmore Dryer Noisy When Running

The customer complaint was the dryer was very noisy, I ran the dryer and did confirm it was extremely loud when the drum was turning. I unplugged the dryer and disassembled it and found two of the drum rollers were bad and worn out, wobbling on the roller shaft. The roller shaft also had metal shavings on the dryer base.

I replaced all four rollers and roller shafts, it’s always best to replace all four at once. After I replaced them it sounded like a normal dryer running.

Here’s the roller and shaft assembly for this model:

Kenmore Refrigerator 106.62152111 Not Cooling Properly

I removed back panel in the freezer and found lots of ice clogging up the air vents going to the refrigerator section, and ice clogging the drain line below the freezer evaporator. I de-iced it all, it took awhile to do, but it has to be done before the refrigerator will cool properly again.

I saw the evaporator fan wasn’t running in the freezer, so I removed the electrical connector from it and used my multimeter to see if it was getting 120 volts to it, and it was. So I replaced the evaporator fan motor and it started blowing cold air.

Here’s the evaporator fan motor for this model:

Samsung Dryer DV42H5200EW/A3 Not Heating

I found the customers dryer vent clogged on the outside of their house, which caused the thermal cut-off, which is located on the heating element housing, to go bad.

I cleaned their outside exhaust vent, and cleaned their entire vent hose exhaust in the back of the dryer of all lint.

I unplugged the dryer, then disassembled the dryer and removed the drum to get better access to it, then I ohm tested the thermal cut-off and I got no continuity on my multimeter. I also ohm tested the heating element and the high-limit thermostat and both ohm tested good.

I replaced the thermal cut-off, reassembled the dryer, plugged it in, and it started heating normally again.

Here’s the thermal cut-off(also called a thermal fuse) for this model:
DC96-00887C

Maytag Dryer MED6000XW1 Not Heating

I went out to this customers house because they said their dryer was not heating at all. When I got there I unplugged the dryer, then used my multimeter to test the 240 volt wall outlet that the dryer was plugged into, my multimeter said 240 volts across the two 120 volt hot legs.

With the dryer still unplugged I then disassembled their dryer and ohm tested the heating element, my multimeter did not register anything(meaning my digital multimeter numbers did not change) when I touched each meter probe to the heating element terminals, so it was bad. The normal ohms should be 50 ohms or less when the heating element is good.

Here’s the heating element for this model:
