Even Sears PartsDirect YouTube star Wayne sometimes needs a few takes to get the shot right when filing DIY videos.

Sears PartsDirect’s Wayne Archer stars in many of our videos and gets lots of love in the comments on the Sears PartsDirect YouTube channel.

This video shows Wayne as you’ve never seen him before.

Literally.

These are outtakes from some of Sears PartsDirect’s DIY videos that show our YouTube star at his worst…or maybe it’s at his best. But definitely at his Wayne-y-est.

Wayne is more than just another pretty face. He started his career as a trained appliance repair technician, so he can walk the walk as well as talk the talk. Although, as you’ll see from these bloopers, sometimes the talking part doesn’t go as planned.

As happy as Wayne is to show you his silly side, he's equally happy to share his DIY repair advice. So once you're done laughing and need to get back to troubleshooting—whether it's a refrigerator that won't cool, a dishwasher that won't drain or a riding mower that's starting to look like a lawn ornament—check out all of Sears PartsDirect's DIY repair help.

Once you've figured out the problem, search your model number on our website to find the part you need. We hope you have as much fun as Wayne does!
