Tyler, I'll put a generic basic brand dishwasher for the purposes of this question, but I want to know it in general for most basic dishwashers. If you have a case where this unit has a thermostat in the bottom and you know it's good, and you ohm out the Heating Element, and it's good, the third possibility would seem to be that the Main Board is not sending current to the Heating Element. Where do you put the probes? Right at the terminals to the heating element, or coming off the board in the door? I want to do what's easiest, but you'd have to be running the unit either in place or out (if the hoses permit).

Dear Wade: My refrigerator is still acting strange. The external temperature behind the 'frige is still really high-higher than it has been in previous weeks ( 90degrees-sometimes higher- used to be in 78degrees-maybe a little higher) & it has been four days and I would think it should be acting normally again. Everything is spotless- in, behind & underneath 'frige (door seals, condenser coils, etc). Should I be shopping for a new refrigerator? Would really appreciate your advice and help.

I have a kenmore pro side by side and the freezer temp rises

I have a kenmore pro side by side and the freezer temp rises from set point of zero to 7-15 degrees at least once or twice a day and then for a couple hours and then back down? Any idea what the issue may be and is it a part that you can tell me how to replace myself?

Tyler, this is a strange one. The night before last, I was

Tyler, this is a strange one. The night before last, I was called to look at a side-by-side that wasn't cooling. I got there and the temp on the freezer side was -7.3 degrees and the fresh food side was 61 degrees. Both fans were blowing and the compressor felt normal. There is a vent to the fresh food side and it wasn't blocked. The Evaporator was iced up, but I checked the heater and it was good. I didn't have a defrost thermostat to replace, so I assumed maybe they just left the door open too long and got too much humid air. I cleaned the condenser. I told them to watch the thermometer on the fresh food side the next afternoon. They called yesterday and said it was down to 40 degrees and good. Today I got a call and they said the fresh food side is back up to 60 degrees. What do you think is going on? (I did tell them to put the thermometer back in the freezer side and see if it looks normal after about 20 minutes.) It's a HSS251FMCWW. I don't know how to set it in defrost mode, for one thing.

Refrigerator. Rf28hfedbbc/aa. Refrigerator side is

Refrigerator. Rf28hfedbbc/aa. Refrigerator side is displaying 77F even though actual with thermometer is 37 or so. freezer reading -4F and matching thermometer reading. Fridge LEDs are not coming on. When cycling power for 5 minutes Leds come back but stay on even though door is closed. After a few it turns off and never turns on ever again. Ice maker auger doesnt work. Im suspecting this is the door switch as if its broken all these thing would happen as the fridge would think door is always open. However this would not explain the wrong fridge temp display reading. Thermo sensor tests ok with my meter. Was running down from 6kohms and responded to cold stimulation and warm. How do i test the door switch, how to remove more so, and could this all be from pcb?
