Need Appliance Repair Help? Ask a Technician for Answers ASAP
Hello from our service,
My name is Chas, I am so happy to help you today.Before we get started, I would like to help us get on the same page so that our interaction will go smoothly.I might give you an answer immediately, or ask you a question. Either way, we are likely to be in a question and answer format, so you will need to click reply to expert if:a. You want to add detail.b. Your question was not fully answered.c. You want to ask further questions.Since I am inviting you back to do any of these, do not use a 1 or 2 rating or this will likely NOT help you get a satisfactory answer. It will delay our task, and it tends to be depressing for the expert trying to help you, often right at the beginning of the exchange, before we have accomplished our task.I know the rating system is somewhat complicated, but you do not have to do a negative rating in order not to pay or to get your deposit back.In addition, a negative rating only serves to rate the expert doing his/her utmost to help you. The expert also will not get paid under these circumstances.Negative ratings do not cover site problems, delays, or anything else on the site that might annoy you, as experts are only involved in trying to answer your questions.Negative ratings do not cover posts that do not come through, or any other difficulties...experts face those just as you do. This includes frustrations that you might have had before meeting your expert.I would like to say that we are also on the honors system. I in good faith am going to do my utmost to ensure your satisfaction. But, it is up to your honor to click a smiley face and make sure that I am compensated for my time and effort. Please realize we are only compensated PER smiley per click and from bonuses, so extensive time with you would hopefully stimulate your consideration of this aspect of the system.
can I get complete model number of the unit?
Sure, Chas. It's AMMELU81A.
Sears Kenmore Elite upright freezer & what I gave you is all that is on the tag on the left inside wall.
Try 26072, Chas. I found my manual where I'd written it. Sorry.
The bezel is on very tight, Chas, & I really don't want to screw up the touch-pad. I tried slipping a thin-blade screwdriver under it, but it doesn't want to pry up. Any ideas?
All I ask of you is to please rate me with one of the top 3 ratings. If there is anything else I can help you with today just let me know. You can continue asking questions for as long as you like even after you rate me. Click the continue conversation link if you would like to continue this conversation. If you are done and rate a 1 or 2 star please consider using the "continue conversation" link and telling me what more I can do or what more you would have liked that was within my power so that I possibly give you that information or help me improve my customer satisfaction rating. . .
Bonuses are welcome if I have helped you a lot, however they are not mandatory
Okay, I'm closer, but not there yet.
The speaker is surface-mounted onto the circuit board, & looking the back side, there are 5 or 6 places where it could be soldered. How do I proceed?
"Most likely" doesn't hack it, Chas. If I unsolder the wrong connections, my touch-pad will no longer work, & guess who will be left hanging? Certainly not you!
And to get a good rating, you should have told me that you were leaving the conversation, instead of leaving me hanging for 8 hours! Sorry, but I don't consider your support as sufficient.
The speaker doesn't have a hole - it's a solid piece with no access to the interior. Other than trying to rip it off, there's not much I can do to stop it from beeping, & again I don't want to mess up the other circuits on the touch-pad.
If you can't tell me which places to unsolder, you haven't solved my problem, Chas.
Okay, thanks for trying. One problem is that my parrot sits about 10 feet from the freezer, & when it goes into its beep mode, so does he!
I'll never deal with Sears again, believe me!
Your unit was made by frigidaire for sears, sears makes nothing for this unit.....
P.s. I have a large Blue and Gold MaCaw that is noisey
Please remember to leave positive feedback before you leave. If you have any other questions, please let me know! You may continue asking follow-up questions until you have all the information you need, even after rating my service. Thank you!
Kelly, I'm very familiar with SMT as I used to run a department at Motorola. However, my question is WHICH of the SMT junctions need to be desoldered to disable the speaker.
No, I missed your arrows - sorry. Okay, I'm going in to do the desoldering.
With any luck, the damn beeping will stop after 6 years!
