Q:

blowing fuse

A:

Thank you for the question but I am sorry for the trouble you are having with your Kenmore 110.6072010 Dryer.  Repeat thermal fuse failure are usually traced back to vent problems.  Overloading the dryer can also be the cause of the fuse blowing but from the descritpion you give I do not supect the dryer is overloaded.  Since the thermal fuse glow so quickly my first suggestion would be for you to remove the vent hose from the back of the dryer.  A restricted vent is the most common cause of repeat thermal fuse failures.  Something else to consider is how you use the dryer.  Sometimes it is a common practice to open the door and check if the clothes are dry.  Do not do this while the dryer is running.  If the element is on heating and you open the door you loose airflow while the element still stays on for a moment and this heat with no air flow can blow the thermal fuse.  First turn the dryer off then open the door to check if the clothes are dry.     You can reply below with any additional details for further assistance.

Thanks for the information about your refrigerator model GB9FHDXWQ, I will be glad to assist you. Based on the description you have provided I think that there may be a problem with the defrost drain system. If the drain trough is restricted water from the defrost cycle will buildup ice and overflow into the bottom of the freezer.  On your model with an ice maker there could be a water leak from the ice maker fill line as well. _Always disconnect power supply before servicing the appliance and be cautious of any sharp metals while accessing components_Because your refrigerator is less than a year old I would highly recommend calling for service and have the unit inspected. If you choose to attempt a DYI fix you will need to totally defrost the refrigerator by disconnecting power, move food elsewhere,  open all refrigerator doors and allow 8 to 10 hours for ice to melt(be prepared to deal with access water leaking) . Once all ice is melted, you will need to remove the evaporator cover in freezer which will require removing the ice maker and freezer fan housing and motor. Under the evaporator coil is located the drain trough and drain hole,  flush it out with air pressure then flush with warm water and baking soda. Reassemble all in reverse order. 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.

Thank you for your question on the air compressor never getting to the target shut off pressure.

I do not think the pressure switch is the problem unless there is an air leak at the fittings.

I think the reed valves on the reed plate are not closing tight enough to send air pressure into the storage tanks.

They could be either bent or broken in the head.

The other possibility is the rings on the piston are bad, or an air leak on the head reed plate gaskets.

While the air compressor is running put you hand by the air intake to see if you can feel air coming out of the intake instead of just going in?

If you can then the reed valves are bad and will need to be replaced.

You may have to remove the head and reed plates to see if you can discover the problem.

Please let me know what you find to be the problem and we can continue troubleshooting with that information.

This is Larry the original author of this air compressor inquiry. This is the first time I've used this web site btw. So far I'm very impressed. Just curious. Are you a current or former Craftsman or air compressor technician or a homeowner who just likes to tinker ? Not that it really matters....you seem to know your stuff here. Anyhow yes there is air coming out of the two 1/4 inch holes in the edges of the air filter housing. The housing has a 2 inch rubber cover sealed over the end (face) so these 2 holes are the only place where air can enter the filter. There is significant air coming out of these holes. I will check that link you gave me for the cost of the reed valves before proceeding. I strongly suspect that this is the problem.....will know for sure after I remove the head plate and inspect them. I'll try to remember to update this site again after I confirm the problem to let you know. Thanks. Larry

Sam, This is Larry again. I looked at the parts diagram at the link you provided. The detailed (blown up) diagram shows what looks like two (2) reeds. It is part index number 9. Does my compressor have 2 reeds or just 1 ? Thanks again, Larry

Thank you for the update. I guess from looking at the parts page it will depend on when your air compressor was made. You will have to take the head off to find out what it has. If you have a date code printed on the compressor that may help. Sam A.

I just have seen your earlier response and then I also believe that the reed valves are the problem.

Sam the mfr date on the label that has the model #/serial # and other info is 06-2007. Again I was hoping to find out how many reeds it has before I tear into it.

UPDATE: New info. I started up the compressor again this evening. I noticed that there is air coming out of 2 tiny (approx 1/32 inch dia) holes that are drilled into the long black plastic cap at the oil fill hole. This tells me that there is air pressure down in the bottom end of the crankcase. Which inplies that the pioston rings are leaking air passed them just like in a gasoline or diesel engine. Secondly I removed the head. There are 2 reeds as I suspected ie. one for intake and one for exhaust. The exhaust one was alot darker colored (maybe from oil seeping up into the top of the cylinder). I also saw a bluish colored substance on and around the reeds.....not alot just small traces.....it was tacky and/or greasy. Not sure what that stuff is. I wiped all of it off with a paper towel. There was a little dark colored greasy like stuff around or on them too. I cleaned them off thoroughly....no solvents...just a clean dry paper towel. Before reassembly I thought I'd try flipping the reeds over as well as swapping them between ports. No change.....did not help a bit. Right after this is when I noticed that air coming from those tiny holes in the oil filler cap. So to recap. I have air coming OUT of the air filter housing (two 1/4 inch holes in sides) as well as air coming OUT of the oil filler cap. To me the reeds looked fine. They appear to be made of stainless steel.....I was expecting fiberglass like on my 2-stroke dirt bike. The reeds appeared perfectly flat. I saw nothing unusual about them except some discoloration. I did however see a tiny scrape/groove in that thin metal gasket that sits between the head and the cylinder.....looks like someone scraped it with the edge of a screwdriver. There were 2 actually...one was at one of the bolt holes. Please get back to me. I need a diagnosis on this. Agree that this is probably bad rings and not bad reeds ?

Thank you for the update. If the reeds are flat and clean and fit tight against the reed plate hole then it may be a broken ring or a check valve leaking bye. The scars in the head gasket are not good and you may want to replace those in any case. You may have to pull the piston to see what condition the rings are in. They could cracked or missing. Please let me know what you find out. Sam A.

Update 8-20-12: I've not had time to work on this again yet. The reeds are flat and do not look to be the problem. The exhaust port reed has some dark stains that didn't want to come off but that should not cause this problem. The only thing I saw in the head area was that small scar on that head gasket. Not sure that it was bad enough to be causing this problem though. But I will replace it if/when I replace any other parts. The reeds do fit flat against the reed plate hole. So my next step (when I get time) is to remove the head and cylinder and inspect the piston and rings. Correction: Since this should be much simpler my next step should be to check out the check valve and if it's good then I should inspect the piston/rings. I need some info about the check valve. 1) Where is it ? 2) What does it look like ? 3) How do I know if it's bad or good and how do I test it ? Again thanks for your assistance. Larry
