Title: Need help using googledrive to download service manual
Post by: tagarman on January 12, 2014, 08:32:24 PM
Hey everyone,  I need help downloading or printing out a service manual I found on http://appliancejunk.com/googledrive.  How do I access the manual once I find it?  Looks like a great site once I am able to make it work.  Thanks for any help you can give me.

What have you tried so far?
Are you trying to access it from a PC or a mobile device such as a tablet or smart phone?


You don't have to sign in with a google account to view, download or print a service manual but you do get a nice search option if you are signed in. You also have the option to save the service manuals to your own google drive when you are signed in with a google account.


Anyway after I open a service manual (not signed in with google) I see the print icon in the lower right corner as shown in the attachment.

AJ, I am using a PC to access the service manual.  I can get to the page where you can pick service manuals, videos, tech tips, etc.  When I go to the page with service manuals,  it shows me about 100 different manuals with pixs of the cover pages.  This is as far as I can go.  I am not able to save, download or print any of the manuals.  I even signed in with my google account.  What am I doing wrong? Please help if you can.  I never was able to get the page like what you are showing me above.

I just double click on the cover of the service manual and it opens up in my browser so I see the image that I attached in my first reply.
Have you tried clicking on the service manual cover?

If you sign in with you google account you will get a search bar that lets you search the manuals in our google drive.

Just enter the model number in the google drive search bar. You will often get better search results if you just use the first part of the model number instead of the whole model number.

For example, searching for MAH3000 is often better then searching for MAH3000AWW.

You can use the google drive search to find many things that are listed with in each service manual too.
