I need to purchase a suite of kitchen appliances. I found a

I need to purchase a suite of kitchen appliances. I found a good deal on frigidaire professional series appliances and was about to purchase them until I realized that the ranges didn't have a vent. I am replacing 2 jenn air units in an island, each unit has built in ventilation. I do not want an overhead hood. So, it seems like my options are to replace the units with un ts containing in builtin vent or to install a separate vent. The Frigi appliances I am looking at dont have a built in vent, so if I want to stick with Frigi, i need to add a vent. I notice some telescoping vents but am concerned that they would suck the gas flame. Also, the back of the ranges are in the middle of the island, so I am not sure about the look and function.So, I am looking for some guidance here. I would like to purchase the Frigi pro suite bc it is a good deal, but the value may be moot if I have to buy a separate vent. The 2 ranges are going under ceramic counter circa 1990. They are separated by a narrow set of drawers that store cooking utensils. The current units are different, as one has burners and one has grates. Another option would be to but one range without a vent and another range or cooktop that does have a vent. I would want them to be the same manufacture for appearance sake, but am flexible if necessary.I don't have great pictures with me but can upload some later. I have some that will give u a general idea. I am looking for recommendations on the best overall solution.Thanks-Maryann

We have a GE Monogram side-by-side 36", 42", 48" built-in refrigerator

We have a GE Monogram side-by-side 36", 42", 48" built-in refrigerator model # ***** installed 8 years ago. A month or so ago it started making a buzzing noise. Everything seems to work ok the ice maker, the freezer, and refrigerator both keep their temperature and the climate control drawer. The buzzing noise is like Old Faithful every 20 minutes. I had a GE service technician come out on March 8, 2016 and of course it did not make the buzzing noise while he was here. He couldn't find anything wrong. I have now determined the sound is coming from back behind the climate control drawer. Have you had anyone else with this problem?

I melted the inlet tube to my Kitchen Aid icemaker with a heat

I melted the inlet tube to my Kitchen Aid icemaker with a heat gun, to thaw it out, and now it won't make ice at all. I see fill tube WPL2003812 is no longer available. I need to find or MAKE one myself. What can I do?

Good evening, I have a Jenn-Air built-in refrigerator/freezer

Good evening, I have a Jenn-Air built-in refrigerator/freezer unit (model JS42PPFXDA / serial 11994378JG). My freezer temperature is set at 0 degrees yet my freezer temperature fluctuates wildly from about 14-25 degrees. It's important to mention that I've had a control board (p/n 67006854) and an evaporator drain tray assembly kit installed. I've also had Freon added, 3 filter driers, and most recently the compressor replaced. During this time, I was able to get the unit to 0 degrees after the Freon was added BUT the temperature continued to fluctuate. I assumed the fluctuations were the result of the defrost cycle as the unit initially recovered back to 0 degrees. Over the course of weeks/month, the fluctuation range increased... example 0-10, then 11-18, to currently 14-28 degrees. I had another tech replace the freezer door switch as a last hope, thinking the switch may have been keeping the lights on/fan off. While I didn't feel this was an issue, it was an inexpensive part and worth a try. The fan is on when the doors as closed; I have no ice build up on the walls of the freezer unit. I did hang on to the original control board that was removed from the unit. Ultimately I need the freezer to be at 0 degrees and remain relatively close to that. At times, after returning home form the grocery store, the refrigerator temp will rise into the mid-40's (as will the freezer temp increase) until recovering back to 36. I can confirm the drip pan is functioning as the condensation is being routed to the tub on top of the unit. I've checked the seals on the doors as well, with no issues identified.

We have a 14 year old Amana fridge. The tech was just out and said the hard start kit that was put on last year has now failed and that when he tested the compressor it took 3 tries but it doesn't look good. He thinks it may be time to replace the compressor but I just wanted to see if this was realistic...seems like a huge expense for a 14 year old fridge and I am wondering if we should look at a new one. JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue? Customer: The freezer started making a buzzing noise that would happen every few minutes and then it stopped cooling. Then the fridge followed. JA: OK got it. Last thing — Appliance Technicians generally expect a deposit of about $18 to help with your type of question (you only pay if satisfied).

I have come across a couple of Frigidaire refrigerators

I have come across a couple of Frigidaire refrigerators lately where water leaks on the back wall when the ice maker calls for water. I have found that if I turn the water valve down coming to the refrigerator that seems to help. Is their any other way to stop this? Maybe a different fill tube. Model frs3hr5jw1

Kitchen aid Refrigerator KBLC36FTS 02 is now not working.recently, refrigerator made a noise like a high-pitched "chirp" (like a smoke alarm that needed new batteries). When the "chirp" happened, the display lights went out, then came back on. There was an intermittent growling/whirring noise (the compressor, I think).I turned the "power" switch to "off", but now the refrigerator is dead. I pust the on/off button, The display lights go on, the compressor tries to start, then everything goes dead
