Title: Troubleshooting and Repairing Major Appliances, Third Edition
Post by: AJ on October 24, 2012, 09:48:41 AM
I have read edition 2 (Jun 8, 2007) and in my opinion it's a great book. It had some of the most up-to-date information I had ever seen at the time in a appliance repair book. Today I noticed a new edition is out, edition 3 (Sept. 26, 2012).

Troubleshooting and Repairing Major Appliances, Third Edition (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0071770186/ref=as_li_ss_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=390957&creativeASIN=0071770186&linkCode=as2&tag=applcomhowtov-20)

Same here. A few years ago I cleaned out some of my books and ended up donating two arms length stacks of computer books to our local library. It's amazing what you can learn from reading. :)


Have AJ's Service manuals disk also.   O0


Thanks for supporting our forum.

My wife reads a ton of books on her ipad with the kindle app and loves it.

I tried reading a few computer books on my ipad with the kindle app and iBook but did not care for them.

Sorry was gone for 4hours.    The book is more than I expected.  Covers a lot.  Has a lot of clear precise scetches & diagrams.   Lots.   Has error codes for the    The photos are B&W & there is quite a few.  At the beginning he talks about becoming a tech,etique & such.  You will have to get yours There is a lot of info, too much for yhis dinasour to type.  Gotta a dryer to repair, get back on late to night.   My opinion  Book is well worth th money spent.   Patricio

Hi Missy,

Not sure if you seen my reply to your other post, but I was wondering if you could tell us more about your training program.
Is it a program to train technicians within your own company or some kind of school?

Thanks for posting.

I ordered and received the book and the pliers. Had a chance to use the pliers in a tight situation today. It made a tough job very easy. Also ordered the manual cd for 74.95  and it has a lot of info, the only bummer is two days later it was on sale for 34.95. That was a pisser. That's my luck. O0

Any one familiar with the LG side by side M# LSC26905TT ? Im hinting towards the main mother board but thought Id get some advice. Freezer completely covered with thick ice. Evap fan motor doesnt activate while compressor is running. I have continuity on my defroster heater connections but defroster heater never activates. This mother board controls literally everything. The defroster timer and relay, evap fan relay, ect...

Hi Skyline: Think you might get better replies if you posted in the refrigeration forum, maybe AJ will see this & move it over for you.
Welcome to the Forum by the way.
