Refrigerator & Freezer Repair / Re: How to get a good compressor
« Last post by HillBilly on August 15, 2022, 08:36:54 AM »
Many thanks.
Yea, I agree but ...
The size makes a good replacement $2k+ish... and then insuring a quality one.
Got used to the ice and chilled water in front so downgrading for more $ than repair cost.
So as it sits, gonna find new LBNA and hopefully get out less than $400... glad I got all the tools.  Today I will check every sensor at the main board to make sure no other issues... nice of them to put the main board on the top of this model...

It seems sad (and mad) that finding good parts/devices, good being longevity and worthwhile to repair, continues to go from bad to worse... maybe it's just me being an old and picky engineer.  Almost pisses me off enough to make my own... but that's stupid timewise not that I haven't done that many times before (maybe I'm stupid! Lol)... possibly... what's the best r134a comp out there today?

I wish everyone the best with there search for getting stuff fixed and don't get old!

Did you ever resolve this problem?

Possibly temperature thermister are out of spec?
Damper door not working properly if it has one on that model?
Defrost stuck on too long?
Door seal not tight?

I have been hearing on Facebook sealed system servicers group that the new LG refrigerators that have R600 isobutane gas and the newest version linear compressor are also failing.  So honestly I would not invest time and money into your frige unless you can find a really good deal on the compressor from someone who is selling a new one on Facebook marketplace or eBay.
I would look at the Midea fridges at Lowes that company is the largest manufacturer of air conditioning and appliances in the world. They were rebranded by other companies for many years and now they are trying to make a impact in the USA under their own name Midea.

Thanks,
*Looked at new $1200 Frigidaire 1 yr warranty... no thx
*Replace with same LBNA... ~350... 3yrs life?  price ok'ish
*Get latest upgraded, get new flash tool... figure ~$500... can't find firmware... yet...

So one of the last 2, the later sounds best but since latest firmware and most recent comp have little history... (theory sounds good but so did lincomps in the beginning...maybe just my ignorance)
What would you do?

Samsung WF42H5600AW/A2
mfd: April 2014

Issue: Despite new bearings and shocks, washer continues to make a loud noise during spin cycle.

For months, our washer makes an awful racket during the spin cycle and had a small leak. I disassembled the washer and discovered that half of the lower counterweight had broken off. I presume this threw off the tub balance and likely caused premature failure to the shocks and bearings. I found that the broken edge of the lower counterweight had also worn a small hole into the door boot seal—the source of the leak. I replaced the following:

- bearing set (6601-002637 & 6601-000148)
- tub seal (DC62-00156A)
- four shock absorbers (DC66-00470A & DC66-00470B)
- door boot seal (DC97-18094C)
- counterweight (DC67-00749A)

I pressed each new bearing and the tub seal into their respective seat rather than beat them into place. Counterweight, shocks and door boot seal were straightforward part swaps. There were no other issues.

After I put the washer back together, I ran a full test cycle with an empty tub—I heard no unusual noise during wash or spin cycles and I saw no leaks. I then ran the washer with a full load. While there was no unusual noise during the wash cycle, the spin cycle made the same awful racket just as bad as before. The leak, however, is gone.

With the washer spinning, I removed the top and rear covers to try and locate the source of the noise with a flashlight. It seems to be coming from the front right, though I cannot positively identify its source. I jostled the tub from the rear while it was still spinning which had absolutely no affect on the noise—I interpret this to mean that the tub is NOT making contact with any part of the machine and the new shocks are likely ok. The tub vibrates noticeably (with a full load) but not so bad that It contacts a body panel of the machine.

I am stumped and mildly frustrated. I believe there was value in replacing the bearings, but clearly they were not the source of the noise as I had originally thought. What other part—seemingly located near the front right of the machine—could be the cause of the racket we hear?

You are supposed to do that update to the board and make sure you have the latest version of the firmware on the jig if you buy a used jig it might be old firmware.

You can check the part numbers on this forum site top of the page has a link to look up and order parts. I think the forum gets small commission too. Otherwise try McCombs supply in PA or Encompass. I have seen people selling the compressors new on Facebook marketplace that they must have been sent under warranty and didn't want to pay the labor to install it.

The rabbit hole deepens...
CJT30000002

If I had to decide at this moment, it's a TCA38151706 and reprogram main board.  Still don't know reputable seller to get what I order exactly...
And still many questions, like the reprogrammer is relatively new and is this in response to forced improvement (class actions)?  And if correct (I don't know just thinking), what experience with time do we have knowing this comp/reprogram is an ok product with longevity/function?

Sry for all the questions, old retired engineer...

Thoughts?

Refrigerator & Freezer Repair / How to get a good compressor
« Last post by HillBilly on August 13, 2022, 06:55:35 PM »
Hello,  I have a frig gone bad (LG) with a FLB075LBNA.  It's just over 3 yrs old and LG won't repair because listed as DNR (I bought it scratch and dent but listed new in may 2019) .  Anyways I'm stuck with the repair.  What I would like to know is what part number/supplier can I get a good one (I think from what I've read is this is the latest part #TCA38151706)
Anyway, will fix but would like a compressor that will last more than 3 years and just ordering the cheapest OEM FLB075LBNA is a bad idea (?).
Thank you for the help.
