Hello,

Anyone from Appliantology.org this is BryanS.  I guess this forum will be my new home.  After 2000+ posts at appliantology.org for 4 years my time there is over.  I guess because I refused to take his online courses or something he has a bur up his butt.  I've been specialized in refrigeration for four years, so feel free to message me if you need any help.  I've been a member here, but never really spent much time here.  I dont ask for help often, and I will help out where I can.  I've also been to school for hvac as well, I know it pretty well,  so I can probably help with any hvac related questions.

Welcome. Are you knowledgeable about all types of fridges? Samsung, lg, whirlpool etc?
I have seen a few of the new whirlpool icemaker designs that thoroughly confuse me.
Would be glad to know of a person that understands all their 6th sense technology!

For the most part I've worked on a lot of different brands.  I started out at Sears, and I had enough of that place.  I work for a small business now.  We are exclusively a Whirlpool dealer, so that's mainly what we service.  I'm pretty much the refrigerator guy here as well.  They are training me on other appliances somewhat, but a lot I'm learning on my own.  I actually passed the master certification that PSA gives at their conventions and most of my appliance knowledge was from a book.  I still have a lot to learn though.

I used to be one the main poster there.  A few months back for no reason I was demoted and had my privileges taken away. He wouldn't tell me why when I emailed him about it.  Then he gave them back.  Then recently he started giving arrogant responses to my comments.  Basically,  implying I couldn't read schematics, which I have been in some shape or form for 12-13 years.  So I had enough and blasted him for it.  He got butthurt, deleted my comment,  and demoted me again.  He is getting greedy is what it boils down too and wanted us all to pay for his forum.  I paid for lifetime membership years ago, yet he still put me down to grasshopper.   He is also raising the price for pro appliantologist to $150.  Like I said, I don't ask for help often, so I'm not paying to help others.  I emailed him after the fact and he replied best wishes and that's it.  Still no explanation.  If  this forum needs donations to stay a float just ask.  I've already made a small donation.  I just like helping others,  which is mainly why I'm here. I'll do what I can here.  I think I have notifications setup to receive new alerts in the refrigeration forum.

He should be paying you for helping people for free, not the other way around :rofl:. I'm sure you had to pay to take his classes too. We all help here out of the kindness of our heart not to make a buck.

I never took his classes for that reason.  During thr beta version it was $100.  I was broke and unemployed because I quit at Sears without work for a year.  Then he upped the price to like $400ish.  They would argue over how to correctly wire nut etc.  Electric tape or dieletric grease in the nut.  You can't use compressor relay/overloads that aren't specific for that compressor.  Sure you can and have for years.  Any reason to try to act smarter than the next guy.  If he had an issue, then address it.  He did one time because I wasn't linking parts correctly for him to get paid.  I just told him I won't link anymore because the way to do it on mobile is really weird and I couldn't get it.

Interesting, I had no idea how much the classes cost or what they entailed.

I don't worry much about members posting affiliate links. That's not what our site is about, but I have tried to make it as easy as possible as all you have to do is highlight the part number and then click a button. Believe I posted directions showing how-to someplace, but I'm to tired to look for it right now haha.

I have a semi-auto linking system that sometimes works too so most of the time if a member just post a part number sooner or later a link is automatically created to AppliancePartsPros. It's does not happen instantly and does not always work, but it's better then nothing.

I don't believe I have ever pushed members to post affiliate links. I do have a couple of dedicated helpers that do make a point of posting part numbers and then use the button to link them to APP and I sincerely appreciate their help.

In fact I sincerely appreciate all and any help I get from the techs as our site is truly to much at this point for me to keep up with by myself. There is no way I can take the time everyday to answer all questions along with keeping up with the software, mod update, emails and spam control that also needs to be done.

Thanks for all your help guys!
