Some Microware Repair Steps for Jenn-Air

The microwave is one of the friendliest appliances in your kitchen. Barely half a century ago, it would have been difficult to imagine cooking without the involvement of an oven or a fire. Now cooking has become so dependent on the microwave for many people that if a snag develops and the microwave stops functioning, it can create a lot of cooking discomfort in the home. It can certainly increase the time you spend in the kitchen cooking and cleaning.

Cut the Power

You can always try to fix your Jenn-Air microwave on your own at home. Disconnect the unit from the power supply before you start attempting a repair. As a second step, make sure to discharge the capacitor of your microwave properly. The capacitor stores reserve power in the unit, so you need to discharge this power beforehand.

Basic Tests

To identify the problem with your Jenn-Air microwave, remove the outer shell by unscrewing it from the back and underneath. Once you have done that, there are three check points that you ought to look at. The first is the door switch, the second the fan motor, and the third is a blown fuse. You can test the door switch with a VOM meter on RX1. If it is found to be faulty, you will have to replace it. You should test both door switches while you are on the job.

Possible Culprits

If the door switch is working fine, you should look at the fan and test whether it has stopped working. If the VOM meter on RX1 shows the needle on infinity, it indicates that the fan motor has developed a defect, and needs to be replaced. The third basic area to be test is the fuse. You can pull out the fuse with a fuse puller, and test both its ends with a VOM meter on RX1. If the results are anything but zero, replace the fuse with another of the same type.

dryer repair boise

The dryer ducts, whether it be maytag, kenmore, whirlpool, ge, or frigidaire, needs the proper exhaust housing, and the seals that are in the air passages should be nearly air tight.  As previously stated, this is necessary to prevent cold air from entering the air stream between the heater and the drum, and to prevent moisture and lint-laden air from getting into the dryer mechanism.  Our Boise dryer repair specialist says that when you encounter a dryer appliance which has excessive lint in the mechanism or elsewhere in the dryer, be sure to clean and inspect these parts.  In many cases, you will be able to restore normal airflow passage by replacing belt seals, gaskets, or dryer ducting on your Maytag, Kenmore, or Whirlpool appliance.  Cabinet dis assembly and sometimes drum removal will be necessary to reach these parts for servicing.  While you are at it, be sure to remove as much of the lint as possible.

Appliance Repair | Refrigerator too cold

What to do when Food Starts Freezing in your Refrigerator?
Whether you own a Whirlpool, Kenmore, Frigidaire, GE, Hotpoint, or any other brand of refrigerator, it is ultimately only a machine which can develop a fault any time. One of the common problems that may occur in your refrigerator is that it may start freezing the food abnormally. If you are facing this problem, before you call a professional refrigerator repair service company, try to review the problem yourself.
Changing the Food Positions or Locations
As a first step, test the inside temperature of the refrigerator. The regular inner temperature should vary anywhere between 35 and 40 degrees. If you notice that the temperature is close to 35° or slightly lower than that, you can increase the temperature using the thermostat switch. If you do not find anything particularly wrong with the temperature, just try to change the placement of sensitive food items to the lower shelves, which are usually warmer than the upper shelves. Just because something froze does not mean your fridge is having issues as well; there is not any reason to call in a professional just yet.
Calling in an Appliance Technician
However, if you realize that even after making adjustments with the thermostat and changing the placement of sensitive foods the problem of freezing food continues to persist, the thermostat may have become faulty, requiring a replacement. You may need to call up an appliance repair Boise company for this job. The repair technician will first try to identify the real problem. If the thermostat is fine, there could be other issues such as a defective air damper, cold air migration, or a leaking sealed refrigerant system. This should not be guesswork; this is where a professional should have their say.

GE Appliance Repair

Hi Folks, Whew, what a day.  Ran into a GE refrigerator today that wasn't working properly.  It was a bottom mount, meaning that the freezer is located in the bottom and the refrigerator on the top.  These appliance work very well but like everything, then need a little maintenance now and then.  Check out this control board mess!  It looks kinda intimidating for the layman.  Actually, working with electronics day in and day out, it's not so intimidating with me anymore.  In this day and age, electronic appliances are the norm.  Anyway, here at Western Appliance Repair, we fix this type of things and even more.  Here we go, does this not look like a bunch of spaghetti?  :->

Washer Repair - Boise Appliance Repair

Washer and Washing Machine History
Washing machines developed to reduce the hardship of the hand-washing process by using a sealed tub with paddles or fingers to agitate the clothing. The first machines were hand-operated.  Electricity was not available to every household until around 1930.
Water often had to be toted, heated on a fire for washing, and then poured into the tub.  This warm soapy water was precious and would be reused again, first to wash the least soiled clothing, then to wash dirtier laundry.  The earliest machine tubs were made from wood, later machines that were made of metal allowed a fire to burn below the washtub.
