congratulations on your choice of machine - it was sold by sears, even if you did not buy it there, they have parts, unless you find them somewhere else on line. So, i visited http://www.searspartsdirect.com/GE-Washer-Parts/Model-WHDSR316G2WW/0432/0153200.html On to this page ...

Yes, by all means - larger than minimum wire is perfectly fine.

It sounds to me like the defrost heaters are not turning off. I can not tell you if yours uses a thermal switch or a timer to cycle them, my guess is for a mechanical switch not working anymore, and stuck in the on position. I am going for the idea that the repair guy thought nothing about the hot sides/top, because it is normal for it to happen, and he ...

It will be an issue, at some point. As Steven said (not that steven, the other one), The problem will be heat build up behind and beside the unit. Compressor running all the time, thermal shut off, when it gets too annoyed. The heat could also lead to condensation issues, or it might be my being jealous and wanting to find a reason to make critical ...

The path of least resistance. When the ground is removed, the current is forced to go through the compressor, and fridge works. When you replace the ground, there is a path from hot to ground, that avoids the compressor. So your problem is somewhere between the 'hot' wire on the plug and the compressor. Possibly a problem in the receptacle where the ...

Your appliance is really three hob-pairs, each of which runs off of 230VAC 50/60Hz 1 phase, pulling 16A. This means that your proposed wiring scheme will work out from an electrical standpoint, which is the good news. The bad news, though, is that for most cord types, carrying 48A requires the flexible cord to have 6AWG conductors as per Table 400.5(A)(1) ...

Not even remotely close. You need 8 gauge copper or 6 gauge aluminum wire. A 20 amp dual pole breaker supplies 20 amps at 240 volts (line to line), or 20 amps at 120 volts twice (line to neutral and line to neutral). You need a 40 amp at 240 volt breaker. ...and these two questions in combination strongly suggest that you get professional help before you ...

If you can't close the door, it does not function so well either. Unplug the cooler, let it warm up completely to room temperature, maybe even add a little heat, but not too hot, warm to the touch, from a hair dryer, and give it a shove back in with the part of your hand that is near the wrist. You may need to pull it out of the space, lean it back a bit, ...

Requirements: moderate strength and an 8" diameter waist line. You don't need anything except elbow grease. Pull at a slight angle to start 'walking' it forward, mere inch(es) at a time. Each consecutive pull is on the opposite side; keep cocking it back and forth, walking it out (think: Itz Bitz Spider). The trouble is if the feet start to dig into the ...
