Hi' sorry about delay. does your timer have this resistor on it? Part 276479this dryer has three control thermostats on it ,1 Part 276447cycling, 2 Part 276430cycling 3Part 276449high limit. have him check the L135 on the blower assembly. he can trace the wires with his meter and tell which one goes to the timer motor , heres the diagrams for the whole dryer if he needs them. if he's not getting 110 volts across the two terminals the timer motor spades conect to when you have the dryer running on high heat you have a bad thermostat, its hard for me to tell from here.. click here for diagrams, http://www.pcappliancerepair.com/model-display.php than ks and let me know sunday how you make out. thanks and well wishes Bryan

The other eve I was with one of your technicians and I was cut off due to power outage.

I woul like to pick up on the same subject, it's a GE profile fridge the ice maker is O.O.O. I would like to describe what I have done to date. I believe I agreed to a $25.00

rate. It is GE profile side by side model 27 installed 11/24/04, ice is formed , the paddle is free , the water line is not frozen in the ice compartment, I turned off the power switch thinking it would defrost the cubes , I closed the door switch and wached the fork to the bin spin.I am prepared to remove the unit if need be. Help , Help,.

 

Thanks John Biso hampstead, NC

Expert:  Bryan replied 5 years ago.
Hi, this is Bryan, what seems to be the trouble with the ice maker, ? is it not letting you get ice through the door? or is the ice not comming out of the ice maker and dropping into the ice bin? let me know.I'll be around this evening, thanks Bryan
Customer: replied 5 years ago.

Hi Bryan, thank you for filling in for Larry. Ice is not comming out of the ice maker.

Larry on June 5 is telling me I must get a new ice maker.

I asked larry how can I test it on the bench and wha about a wiring diagram and a

service manual, do you know if I can get info from GE on line ?

I am prepared to remove the ice maker and test it out, whAT DO YOU THINK OF

this thought, please let me know. Thank you John

Customer: replied 5 years ago.
I cant seem to locate the green button where is it ?
Customer: replied 5 years ago.
Will I get areply from Bryan ?
Expert:  Bryan replied 5 years ago.
sorry John I was out, ok so the ice wont come out of the ice maker itself, but your saying the fingers are going around after you defrosted the ice maker? most likely your heater in the ice maker that releases the ice is bad. if the heater doesnt come on the the ice will not come out. unfortunately they dont sell just the heater or any parts for the ice maker itself you need to replace the whole unit, if you can get me the model 3 I know a site thats cheaper than most and I'll see if they have one, thanks, Bryan
