Q:

How about $100 for part # WB41K0001 to fit a GE gas range Model # JGBP79WEW1WW (old, but still working) instead of $557.33, which is 5 times the stove's value? JGBP79WEW1WW Ge Gas range

Q:

deck deflector replacement 917.273373

A:

Thanks for the inquiry and for being a valued member. 

I was able to find an image showing the torsion spring orientation within the bracket and deflector. You have to hold the deflector and spring in position then slide the hinge pin in. First, you have to remove the push nut on the end of the hinge pin. Usually you have to use a pair of diagonal cutters to cut the nut off. After you have the nut off note the position of the spring. In order to install the spring and hinge rod you will need to remove the hinge bracket from the mower deck. Removing the bracket will help remove tension from the spring so that you can position the spring on the deflector and then slide the hinge rod through the spring.

Q:

Dryer won't turn on DE05-US1 Fisherpaykel Camco dryer

A:

Hello glad to help.  Thank You for choosing Sears PartsDirect.com
 
I am sorry and do understand your frustration when there is problems with the dryer.
 
Glad to help out.   Im  looking at your Fisherpaykel Camco DRyer model number DE05-US1.

First thing for safety and concerns to keep dryer running well is to check the lint screen and vent of air flow going out of the house.   If clogged up it could cause heating problems on any dryer.
 
To prevent a Blocked Vent Hood, once a year: 
 
1.  Clean any lint blockage from the exhaust vent hood.
2.  Make sure the vent hood flappers move freely.
3.  Check for screen/grate openings that allow bird or rodent nests.
4.  Replace exhaust vent hood if damaged.
5.  Check for good air flow while running the dryer.
Note: Poor airflow or decreased airflow indicates further vent system cleaning is needed.

I see the dryer won't turn on so there are a couple very important parts to check first.   You can check both if you have and know how to use an Ohm/volt meter.

I would check the door switch, #we4m126

Check the Safety thermostat, #WE4M80

Check the motor/belt switch, #WD21X557

You can see all these parts at www.SearsParts.com
 
Please "RESUBMIT YOUR QUESTIONS IF THERE IS ANY OTHER PROBLEMS".
 
Thank you for your understanding in this matter and I hope we can help you with your future questions and repairs.  Thank you for choosing Sears and using our SearsPartsDirect.com.

Q:

spud orifice kit for KitchenAide KGST307BWH2 KitchenAide KGST307BWH2

A:

Thank you for contacting SearsPartsDirect.com with your question about your KitchenAid Range. I am so sorry to hear you received a gas conversion kit that came without instructions. I understand how frustrating that must be when you just want to get the range operational. I will be happy to help you with this.

 

I reviewed your previous post and the response from our expert Larry. I apologize for the confusion. We cannot give you instructions on how to install the conversion kit you received because it is the wrong kit for your range. I am so sorry this happened. We wanted to verify you purchased the kit from Sears because it needs to be returned for credit. You stated your range model number is KGST307BWH2 . The correct conversion kit for that model was part number 9751844. The kit is no longer made. Unfortunately we do not have parts to convert your range to propane.  Part number 9755428 does not fit your range. That is why Larry recommended contacting our customer care to assist you with returning it.

 

I hope this answers your questions. If I can be of further assistance please respond to this thread. Thank you for choosing Sears, we appreciate your business.

Q:

Gas drier not getting hot (model 110.76862500 )

A:

Thanks for contacting manage my life about your dryer model 11076862500, sorry you are having a problem I will be glad to assist you.      Not drying may be caused by several components and testing will be needed. The very first thing to determine is this, is there any heat being produced at all? Does the dryer seem hot but clothes just don’t completely dry? If the answer to either of the two questions is yes, then you should check your venting to the outside from the dryer. If the vent or vent hose on back of the dryer is restricted the dryer will not dry clothes. In this situation the vent would need cleaning. _Always disconnect power supply before servicing the appliance and when testing live voltage be sure to wear proper safety equipment (gloves and eye protection) also be aware of sharp metals on product_If there is no heat at all then testing power to the burner assembly needs to be the first thing you do. There are two wires that feed power to the burner assembly a black and a blue. With a volt/ohm meter check the two wires for 120 volts ac., with dryer running set on high heat. If there is proper voltage to the burner assembly then the issue will be the igniter (most common failure) the flame sensor or the gas valves. If there is no voltage to the burner assembly you will need to trace the circuit that supplies power to the burner assembly. Components would be the thermostats (3) and thermal fuse (1). I have attached a wiring diagram for you convenience below. I hope this helps, if you need additional help please reply with added details and I will be happy to respond. If you get to the point where you need to have a service technician diagnose and repair this failure, you can schedule service through this link: Sears Home Services.  Ron H.

Hi, thanks for the reply. I did clear out the venting outside as well as check the three thermostats and the fuse. When I reassembled I ran the dryer for a bit and the vent exhaust was warm. Today we attempted to dry a load of cloths and after 10 minutes or so the vent air was blowing cool. Tried it on timed drying with same result.

Hello John, if the dryer started heating then stopped the issue is most likely not a thermostat. If you are certain there is not air flow restriction and have tried to dry a load with vent disconnected then you should look at the burner assembly. It should have 120 volts ac to it when the dryer is calling for heat. also try to observe the flame when the dry first starts to heat the flame should be blue and not floating around inside the duct surrounding it. If it is there is definitely an air restriction. Be sure to check the filter and housing for lint build up. Ron H.

Hi Ron, OK - Here is what I did so far. I took off the front panel of the dryer off only to see that the front panel is needed to hold the drum in place. (I did remove the plastic insert that allowed me to see the flame - see picture) When I ran it I got a blue flame with yellow tinges. That made me think that the flame mat be air starved and removed all the duct work again (including the one inside the dryer. No large amount of lint buildup found. When I reattached the ducts and restarted the drier The drier flame would not ignite at all. I am convinced that the problem is burner assembly ( igniter (most common failure) or the flame sensor or the gas valves.) I need assistance in how to troubleshoot the next steps....testing power to the burner assembly. You noted there are two wires that feed power to the burner assembly a black and a blue. (With a volt/ohm meter check the two wires for 120 volts ac., with dryer running set on high heat.) Here are my questions... 1) I see more than one black and blue wire (see picture) can you identify which wires should be tested? 2) Since the dryer cannot not run with the front cover removed, how do you suggest testing the 120 vac at the blue and black wire?

A:

John, thanks for the pictures abd your reply, the flame still looks like it is floating, meaning air flow seems restricted. Before you do anything else please remove the vent hose from the back of the dryer and run it with the vent totally disconneted from the dryer. Check the flame , it should be crisp, flowing straight through the duct and not apear to be floating. There is a wire harness that connects to the burner assembly(not on the assembly to igniter or sensor or valves, that is the wiring to check, however after seeing the picture of the flame I dont think you should bother with that just yet. You have to work it with front off, door switch in closed position, belt off and drum removed. (very difficult when not experenced in doing this) Ron H.

Yes, I agree the flame looked like it was a bit o2 starved. ( at this point I am confident that there are no blockages in the venting ) As requested, I disconnected the vent from the dryer and ran it for 5 minutes and no flame ignited at all. ( ran on timed dry, high temp)

Hi John, here are the testing instructions for the valve, sensor and ignitor. Start with the power to the assembly as I described earlier, if now there is no flame at all there could be other issues .

Hi Ron, Thanks for the flow diagrams. Here the results of my tests: Burner Assembly (Bl/blue)-120 VAC Flame Sensor (Wh/blue) -120 VAC Igniter 59.6 ohms Gas coils: Assist coil Assuming pin 1 is black wire 1-3: 557 ohms 1-2: �open Main coil 4-5: 1302 ohms (note at first I was not getting 120 at the black/blue) so I had to again remove the back (thinking I popped a fuse) but I found one of the leads on the thermostat had come off. Replaced it and the voltage was as expected) From the above results I plan to head to my sears parts store tomorrow to purchase the two replacement gas coils. Thanks for your help!.

I would like a answer today - if I need service, than I need it before Saturday please. My Kenmore Elite Dishwasher will not run

A:

It can be a real headache when your dishwasher begins to malfunction and display error codes. I did some research and provided a link to a similar question and answer on our site. I hope this will give you a better idea on the next step to take until the Expert responds to your question in more detail within 24 to 48 hours.

If that clean light is blinking seven times and pausing, then repeating then this indicates that the control detects a problem with the heating circuit. That link for a previous answer that Julio posted in the above response describes a similar failure.

I recommend that you check the heating element in the bottom of the dishwasher tub. If it is broken then it will need to be replaced.

If that heating element appears to be okay, then you can reset the control by pressing the following keys in a fairly quick order: HEATED DRY, NORMAL WASH, HEATED DRY, NORMAL WASH. This will cause the control to go into a quick test mode. It will check all components and finish within about 10 minutes. You can cancel that cycle instead of letting it run. Once the control is reset, you can try to use the dishwasher normally. If that blinking clean light code resumes, then I recommend that you have the dishwasher serviced.

If you found a problem with that heating element in the dishwasher, then you may be able to replace that component yourself. You can order parts from this page: Kenmore Elite Dishwasher Model 665.13752K601 Parts . Be sure that you shut off the house circuit breaker for the dishwasher before accessing internal components and replacing parts. You will need to pull the dishwasher out of the counter to access that heating element.

If you need more help, reply with additional details.

Q:

what is round black plastic item between fuel filter and carb

A:

Spring is now here and the grass is growing like crazy. I'm sorry to hear that you are having some issues with your Craftsman lawn tractor.

A:

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

The round plastic item is the fuel pump. If it's leaking gas, the fuel pump will need to be replaced. After the fuel pump has been replaced; the engine should start and run normally. Be sure to make a note of where the vacuum hoses and fuel line connects before disconnecting. The fuel pump #808656 for model 917.271861 tractor can be ordered from Sears Parts Direct.

I hope this is helpful. If I may be of further assistance as more details become available, please reply to this post.

Which port goes where? My father n law disconnected the pump to replace it and now he doesn't know where they go. I'm not sure either. There's a "P" on one port and an "arrow" pointing into the pump on another. I'm guessing the "p" goes to the oil fill tube" and the arrow gets connected to the fuel tank. The other goes right to the carburetor, Is that correct??

I replaced the pump, connected the "P" to dipstick tube, inlet to fuel tank and outlet to carburetor. I'm still getting fuel pumping out of the meshed hole on the pump when I'm cranking. I have a spark on the plug, solenoid under carburetor is working, I'm cranking but no start. I'm wondering if the pump is hooked up correctly. It looks like that's the way it should go.

Juan: According to the fuel pump part number, doesn’t it have three ports for three hoses, like the video showed? It should have a fuel inlet port in which the gas supply connects to, a fuel outlet port feeding the carburetor and vacuumed hose inlet to operate the fuel pump. Did you watch the video?

Joey, Yes, I watched both of your recommended videos but my tractor's vacuum line is off the dipstick tube not the valve cover. I'm pretty sure I have everything hooked up correctly. I have an older 15.5 HP tractor without a pump, so I cant go by that one. I'm thinking I have a carburetor problem.

Juan: I was basing my answer on a model 917.271861 in the original question on this post and your description of a fuel pump. Evidently you do not have this model number tractor. What is the model number of your tractor and has the engine been replaced? Maybe you do not have a vacuum operated fuel pump or a fuel pump. The vacume hose was would not attach to the dipstick tube. Provide me the model number of your tractor so that I see which type of fuel system and carburator the engine has.

I replaced the engine a couple of years ago. I now have an Extended Life 20HP B&S 540cc. (9BSXS.5402VL). It has the fuel pump attached to the side of the plastic housing (Cover). When I crank it, I get fuel coming out of the meshed vent on the pump. I checked the spark plug, it was a little dirty, I cleaned it and I have a spark. I also removed the solenoid under carburetor and It works in and out when I turn the key. I'm getting a new spark plug. I attached a couple of pics
