The refrigerator was making a weird noise - as it turned out, the compressor was trying to start. Our technician found out that when the compressor was initially starting, it would be getting 13.5 Amp, and then switch to 2 Amps. Such a high current was too much for the overload relay so it would shut down. Replacing the start relay fixed this issue and the 25 year old Whirlpool EHB-191AK refrigerator started working well again. The tech also cleaned the condenser coil since it was completely covered with dirt, which could also cause malfunctions of the overload relay. A note to everyone: make sure you keep the condenser coil of your fridge to lower the chances of any issues.

Double oven had an issue with lower bake element. It wouldn’t heat up to a certain temperature and newer goes above 200 degrees. When our technician checked the voltage coming to an element it showed 120 instead of necessary 220-240, which leaded to a control board relay board problem. We had to order a new power board and replace it in order to made it back to normal.
A couple of weeks before the customer detected the problem with her top-loading GE washer, there were repairs done on the cold water pipe-system. Dirt and mud from the pipes clogged up the hose filter, preventing normal water flow. That’s why the washer was filling so slowly. Our tech cleaned the hoses and the washer started filling water perfectly.
The Samsung RF287AERS fridge was acting out, making noises and not keeping the food cold enough. During the diagnostic, our tech noticed that the defrost sensor was showing around 20MOhms when frozen. It was clear that the defrost sensor was defective and had to be replaced.
