Ohm’s Law Calculator: A Crucial Tool for Appliance Repair

Ohm’s Law Calculator: A Crucial Tool for Appliance Repair

Ohm’s Law Calculator


Using the Ohm’s Law Calculator

To use the Ohm’s Law Calculator, follow these simple steps:

  1. Enter known values into any two input fields (Voltage, Current, Resistance, or Power).
  2. Optionally, you can select different units from the dropdown menus for each input field.
  3. Click the “Calculate” button to compute the remaining values.
  4. The calculator will automatically calculate and display the missing values based on Ohm’s Law.

For example, if you know the Voltage (V) and Current (I) in a circuit, enter those values into their respective fields, then click “Calculate” to find the Resistance (R) and Power (P). Similarly, you can enter any other combination of two known values to find the remaining two values.

Understanding Ohm’s Law: A Crucial Tool for DIY Appliance Repair

When it comes to DIY appliance repair, having a solid understanding of the fundamentals of electricity is essential. Among these fundamentals, one principle stands out as particularly crucial: Ohm’s Law. Named after the German physicist Georg Simon Ohm, this law forms the backbone of electrical engineering and is indispensable for troubleshooting and repairing a wide range of household appliances, including ranges, ovens, dishwashers, refrigerators, microwaves, washers, and dryers.

What is Ohm’s Law?

At its core, Ohm’s Law describes the relationship between voltage (V), current (I), and resistance (R) in an electrical circuit. It is often summarized by the formula:

V = I × R

Where:

  • V represents voltage, measured in volts (V).
  • I represents current, measured in amperes (A).
  • R represents resistance, measured in ohms (Ω).

In simpler terms, Ohm’s Law tells us that the voltage across a resistor in an electrical circuit is directly proportional to the current flowing through it, and inversely proportional to the resistance of the resistor.

Application in DIY Appliance Repair

Understanding Ohm’s Law can be incredibly beneficial when troubleshooting and repairing household appliances. Here’s how it applies to various scenarios:

  • Heating Elements in Ranges and Ovens: Heating elements in electric ranges and ovens are essentially resistors that generate heat when current flows through them. By applying Ohm’s Law, you can measure the resistance of a heating element (with the power disconnected) and determine if it is faulty. A significant deviation from the expected resistance indicates a problem with the heating element.
  • Motor Troubleshooting in Dishwashers, Washers, and Dryers: Motors in appliances like dishwashers, washers, and dryers rely on the relationship between voltage, current, and resistance. By measuring these parameters, you can diagnose motor issues such as worn-out brushes, damaged windings, or faulty connections.
  • Compressor Diagnosis in Refrigerators: Refrigerators use compressors to maintain the desired temperature. Ohm’s Law can help diagnose compressor problems by assessing the resistance of the compressor windings. A deviation from the expected resistance values could indicate a compressor issue requiring repair or replacement.
  • Microwave Magnetron Testing: The magnetron in a microwave oven is responsible for generating microwave radiation. Testing the magnetron’s resistance can help determine its health. Ohm’s Law assists in analyzing the relationship between voltage, current, and resistance to identify potential faults.
  • Electrical Safety: Beyond troubleshooting, understanding Ohm’s Law is crucial for ensuring safety during appliance repair. By calculating the expected voltage, current, or resistance in a circuit, you can anticipate potential hazards and take appropriate precautions, such as wearing insulated gloves and disconnecting power sources.

Conclusion

In the realm of appliance repair, Ohm’s Law serves as a powerful tool for diagnosing problems and identifying faulty components. By mastering this fundamental principle, you equip yourself with the knowledge and skills needed to tackle a wide range of appliance issues confidently. Whether you’re dealing with a malfunctioning range, a washer that won’t run, or a refrigerator that won’t cool, Ohm’s Law provides a reliable framework for effective troubleshooting and repair.

Armed with the understanding of Ohm’s Law, both professionals and DIY enthusiasts can embark on appliance repair projects with greater confidence, efficiency, and safety.

How to Use the Serial Number on Your GE Appliance to Determine Its Age

If you’re wondering how old your GE appliance is, you can determine its age by using the serial number. Each GE appliance has a unique serial number that contains information about the appliance, including the month and year of manufacture.

In this post, we’ll walk you through how to decode your GE appliance’s serial number to determine its age. We’ll use the examples from Eric’s video to illustrate the process.

Step 1: Locate your appliance’s model tag

Before you can decode your appliance’s serial number, you’ll need to locate its model tag. The model tag is a small metal or plastic plate that is typically located on the appliance in a safe but easy to find location. If you’re having trouble locating the tag, you can use our model number locator for common tag locations.

Step 2: Determine the month of manufacture

The first character of the serial number indicates the month in which the appliance was manufactured. Use GE’s Appliance Manufacture Date Code Chart to determine the corresponding month. For example, if the first character of your appliance’s serial number is ‘D’, it was manufactured in February.

Step 3: Determine the year of manufacture

The second character of the serial number indicates the years during which the appliance may have been manufactured. Use GE’s Appliance Manufacture Date Code Chart to determine the possible years. For example, if the second character of your appliance’s serial number is ‘R’, it could have been manufactured in 2020, 2008, 1996, 1984, 1972, or 1958.

Step 4: Use the owner’s manual to narrow down the year

To narrow down which year your appliance was manufactured, you’ll need to reference the owner’s manual. Look for a date on the bottom of the first or last page. If you don’t have a physical copy of the manual, you can find a digital version on GE’s website using your appliance’s model number.

Match up the year from the owner’s manual to the closest year in the chart. For example, if the date listed in your owner’s manual is 11-22 and the second character of your appliance’s serial number is ‘R’, the closest year in the chart is 2020. This indicates that your appliance was manufactured in February of 2020.

Examples

Let’s run through a few examples using the information from Eric’s video.

Example 1: GE Microwave

Serial Number: D S

Month: February

Possible Years: 2021, 2009, 1997, 1985, 1973, or 1959

Date Listed in Owner’s Manual: 11-08

Closest Year in Chart: 2009

This indicates that this microwave was manufactured in February of 2009.

Example 2: GE Stove

Serial Number: H A

Month: May

Possible Years: 2013, 2001, 1989, 1977, 1944

Date Listed in Owner’s Manual: 01-09

Closest Year in Chart: 2013

This indicates that this stove was manufactured in May of 2013.

Example 3: Older GE Stove

Serial Number: A H

Month: January

Possible Years: 2017, 2005, 1993, 1981, 1951

Date Listed in Owner’s Manual: 03-93

This indicates that this stove was manufactured in January of 1993.

Conclusion

Decoding your GE appliance’s serial number is a simple process that can help you determine its age. By using GE’s Appliance Manufacture Date Code Chart and the information from your appliance’s model tag and owner’s manual, you can easily determine when your appliance was made.

Stop Your Samsung Water Pitcher from Leaking with This Easy DIY Hack

Posted on March 24, 2023

If you own a Samsung Water Pitcher for your refrigerator, you may have experienced the frustration of it leaking when you try to pour water. The problem is that the factory gasket on the lid is not thick enough to create an airtight seal with the pitcher, causing water to seep through and drip from the pitcher. But don’t worry, we have a quick and easy fix for you!

To fix the leaking issue, you will need a few things: a flathead screwdriver or butter knife, a size 64, 3 1/2” x 1/4” rubber band, and of course, your Samsung Water Pitcher.

First, using a flathead screwdriver or butter knife, gently separate the gasket from the pitcher, being careful not to damage the gasket. Then, stretch the rubber band around the filter and seat it in the groove that the gasket sits in. Make sure the rubber band is lying flat and is not bound or twisted. The rubber band will make it so that the gasket seats slightly further out, allowing for a tighter fit.

Next, reinstall the gasket by aligning it so that its shape mirrors the shape of the lid. Stretch the gasket back over the lid so that it seats on top of the rubber band. Finally, fill the pitcher up, press the lid back into place, and pour to test for any leaks.

And that’s it! With this simple fix, your Samsung Water Pitcher should no longer leak. If you found this blog post helpful, make sure to check out the video above and drop a like or comment to let us know.

Hey Guys it’s Ryan with Parts Dr and today I’m going to show you how to replace the coolselect pantry cover on your refrigerator. Let’s get started. To get started we need to remove the left and right bottom door bins and to do that you just need to gently lift up on the bottom of the door bin and it will come right out. With the door bins out of the way we will next remove the left and right crisper drawers. Just pull the drawer out until it stops, then lift up and it will slide out the rest of the way. So here’s what holds the coolselect pantry drawer cover in place. If you open it up, you’ll see there’s two pieces that go into slots here and here. And then on the ends there’s a pin plastic pin sticking out on each side that holds it into place. To get this removed what you need to do is lift up here in the center of the cover. You can see how that lifts the middle of it out of those slots. While you are lifting up in the middle you’ll need to use your other hand putting pressure on the left side pushing over this direction. That will give it just enough clearance to release the pin on the left side and to slide it out of place. So I’m going to lift up with my right hand while pushing over with my left hand until the pin for the cover comes out of the slot. Then the rest of the pantry cover can be removed. If you already have a new pantry cover great, if you need to purchase a new one check out our website partsdr.com where you can purchase a new one. To install the pantry cover you’ll start by inserting the right side pin of the pantry cover in the hole on the right side. To get the left pin into place, use your right hand to push up and use your left hand to push down to flex the cover. This will get the pin started and then you can slide it until it locks into place. Next reinstall the two drawers. Just get the drawer started then lift it up till it slides in the rails and you can push it into place. Now reinstall the door bins by making sure that the notches on both sides line up with the notches on the refrigerator. Once lined up you can push down until it locks into place.

Samsung Refrigerator Water Leakage Service Kit

Posted on March 29, 2016

Samsung part number DA82-01415A ( PD00024858) is a refrigerator water leakage service kit.  This kit is used to repair water leaking under the crispers and/or a fan noise that stops when the doors are opened on Samsung bottom freezer and french door refrigerator models with dual evaporators.   When the defrost drain water is not draining properly it causes ice to form at the top of the evaporator, interfering with the fan and causing the drain to freeze and water to overflow, which then runs down and gathers under the crisper drawers.  Before ordering and installing the water leakage service kit you should verify that the defrost heater and defrost sensor are working properly.  Installation of this kit requires moving the evaporator coil, and damage to the evaporator coil can cause catastrophic failure to the sealed system of the refrigerator.  This kit works on all bottom freezer and french door refrigerator models with dual evaporators that have do not have the new style drain tube installed from the factory, see step 9 in the repair instructions below for a photo showing the new and old style drain tube.

DA82-01415A ( PD00024858) Kit Contents:

• 1 new drain tube with cap
• 1 foam seal for the bottom of the drain plate
• 2 foam strips for the back of the evaporator drain plate
• 1 defrost heater clip

Repair Instructions:

1. Unplug the refrigerator and remove the Evaporator Cover.

2. Verify that the defrost heater and defrost sensor resistance is correct. If incorrect, replace the part(s).

3. Move the defrost sensor to the top of the evaporator inlet tube (just below the cap tube joint). If necessary, remove enough mastic material to place the sensor correctly. The sensor must be positioned on the left side of the inlet tube as shown.

5. Lift the evaporator and drain plate out of position and carefully bend them up.

6. Add the two foam strips to the back of the plate and add the seal to the bottom of the drain plate.
DA82-01415A pic 3

7. Bend the bottom row of the cooling ribs on the evaporator.
DA82-01415A pic 4

8. Remove the seal on the back of the Evaporator Cover, if there is one present. The cover should be smooth as shown

9. Replace the drain tube and cap. The refrigerator section tube is on the far right in the compressor compartment.
DA82-01415A pic 6

After installing the new water leakage service kit, you will need to fully thaw the defrost drain on the refrigerator if the drain is iced up.  There are a few different ways to thaw the defrost drain.  The easiest way to thaw the defrost drain is to unplug the refrigerator and leave the refrigerator and/or freezer doors open for 24 hours.  Or while you have the evaporator cover pulled off you can pour hot water in the drain area until all of the ice has melted and water is able to freely flow down the drain to the back of the refrigerator.
