WRX735SDBM02 Whirlpool Refrigerator Ice Maker Not Working

I found the ice maker not making any ice at all, the ice maker would cycle but not put water in the ice maker tray. I volt tested the electrical connector that goes to the ice maker water inlet valve solenoid while the ice maker was cycling, and my multimeter was only showing 48 volts AC, and that ice maker water inlet valve solenoid needs 120 volts AC to put water in the ice maker tray.

I replaced the ice maker and it worked great, I could hear and see the water going into the ice maker tray.

ED25TQXGW00 Whirlpool Refrigerator Not Cooling

When I arrived I pulled the refrigerator out from the wall, then unplugged the refrigerator, then removed the compressor start relay from the side of the compressor and used my digital multimeter to ohm test it, I set my meter on 200 ohms, and my meter’s numbers didn’t change when I ohm tested it, and that means its bad.

Normal ohms should be 12 ohms or less, usually around 5 ohms. I installed a new compressor start relay and the compressor came right on and started cooling. I also cleaned the customers condenser coil. located underneath the front of the refrigerator, behind the kickplate grille.

Here’s the compressor start relay for this model:

Kenmore Refrigerator 253.78899016 Ice Maker Not Working

When I arrived there was no ice at all in the ice bin that’s located directly under the ice maker. I removed the front cover, just unsnaps off, and turned the gear in the direction of the arrow, then it started cycling on its own and it put water in towards the end of the cycle.

The freezer was at 5 degrees which is good. I told the customer I would call him later that evening to see if it dumped the ice out, So four hours later I called the customer and he said no ice had dumped into the ice bin, I ordered a new ice maker and went out to install it, and he called me back saying the new ice maker dumped the first batch of ice.

Frigidaire FAQG7077KA0 Dryer Running but Not Heating

I went to the customers house and found the dryer running but not heating at all. The Ignitor was not even turning on. I unplugged the dryer from the wall outlet, then took the dryer apart and ohm tested the thermal limiter that’s located on the burner tube and it ohm tested bad, no continuity at all.

I ordered and replaced the thermal limiter and it worked good and started heating.

Here’s the thermal limiter for this model:

WTW8500DC0 Whirlpool Washer Not Filling Properly

Went on a service call in Parker, Arizona for a Whirlpool washer, model number WTW8500DC0, that wasn’t filling fast enough, very slow fill and it would time out per the control board. The error code was F8E1 LONG FILL.
I checked the customers water pressure to the washer on both hot and cold and it was good water pressure. Then I checked the water inlet valve screens and they were not clogged.
I ordered a new water inlet valve and went back to the customers house to install it, and it worked great, much faster water fill and no more error code F8E1.

Here’s the water inlet valve for this model:

FRT18LR7AW2 Frigidaire Refrigerator Not Cooling Properly

When I arrived I opened the freezer door and there was massive frost build-up on the back panel inside the freezer. I Unplugged the refrigerator from the wall outlet, then I got my heat gun and started defrosting it, then I removed the back panel inside the freezer and continued defrosting the evaporator coil.

I noticed a bulge on the top of the defrost thermostat, and ohm tested it while it was still covered in frost and I got no ohms reading at all, so it was bad and the cause of this problem.

Here’s the defrost thermostat for this model:
