LGC6848AQ1 Whirlpool Gas Dryer Not Heating

The dryer was running but not heating at all. I always first unplug the dryer from the wall outlet and then ohm test the thermal fuse, which I did and it was good. Then I disconnected the flame sensor and ohm test that, its located on the side of the burner tube, and that ohm test bad, no continuity going through it.

I replaced the flame sensor and it started heating and worked great!

Here’s the flame sensor for this model:

ATW4475TQ0 Admiral Washer Not Spinning

Went out on a service call and the complaint was the washer would not spin. I first unplugged the washer and ohm tested the lid switch for continuity, while I activated the lever on it. It ohm tested bad, no continuity, meaning the numbers on my digital multimeter didn’t change.

I replaced the lid switch and it worked perfect!

Here’s the lid switch for this model:

SSS25KFMBWW GE Refrigerator Not Cooling in the Fresh Food Section

I went out to this refrigerator and found the back panel inside the freezer had massive frost build-up on it. I first unplugged the refrigerator from the wall electrical outlet, then ohm tested the defrost heater and found it was bad, meaning the numbers on my digital multimeter didn’t change. Normal ohms for most at defrost heaters is mainly about 30 ohms or less.

I completely defrosted the entire evaporator coil, which is located behind the back panel in the freezer, then I removed the old defrost heater assembly and installed the new defrost heater assembly, worked great!

Here’s the defrost heater assembly for this model:

ACD2238HTS Amana Refrigerator Not Cooling

When I arrived the back panel inside the freezer has massive frost buildup on it. I unplugged the refrigerator from the wall outlet, then ohm tested the defrost thermostat while it was frosty and the heating element, both ohm tested good.

I ordered and replaced the adaptive defrost control board and it worked great!

Before the adaptive defrost control board is replaced its a must to defrost the entire evaporator coil from top to bottom.

Here is the adaptive defrost control board 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:

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:
