Samsung Refrigerator Troubleshooting Webinar

Posted on July 27, 2017 by - Academy Talk, Presentations, Tech Talk

We had a full house at this Master Samurai Tech Office Hours webinar! I debunked the common tech perception that Samsung refrigerator use special, secret technology not used in any other refrigerator. In fact, I showed that Samsung's function and get troubleshoot using the same basic troubleshooting techniques as any other modern, computer-controlled refrigerator.

In addition to demystifying Samsung refrigerator repair, we talked about these other topics:

  • Keys to being a great tech
  • NTC thermistors
  • voltage divider circuits
  • the Ten Step Tango Troubleshooting Procedure
  • Capacitors used with motors
  • Linear compressors

Attending the regular, live training webinars is one of the benefits for students here at the Master Samurai Tech Academy and Professional Appliantologist members at our sister site, Appliantology.

The webinar recording below will be available to everyone for a week or so. After that, you'll need to be an MST Academy student or PA member at Appliantology to view it.

UPDATE: The webinar recording is no longer available to the public but is still available for Professional Appliantologists and Master Samurai Tech Academy students.

Electrical Concepts for Appliance Technicians, Part 1

Posted on July 26, 2015 by - Academy Talk, Presentations, Tech Talk

Earlier this summer, the United Servicers Association, Long Island, NY, chapter asked me to do a live webinar training for their monthly meeting. They were in a conference room at a hotel in New York while I was in my office in New Hampshire, hosting the webinar from my computer. Webinar sessions are an awesome way to provide in-depth training to techs; not only was I able to show and annotate the presentation, but I could answer questions real-time and carry on a discussion.

Since my audience was experienced techs, I moved pretty quickly through the material and we covered a lot of ground in one evening. The four major topics were: 1) the basics of electricity; 2) series and parallel circuits; 3) Ohm’s Law; and 4) understanding and reading schematics. All of these topics and more are taught in our online Fundamentals of Appliance Repair training course.

This video on electron flow, voltage, and current is the first in a four-part series where I'll be sharing the recordings from that training session. Come with me now on a journey of Total Appliance Enlightenment…

 

I unpack this much more thoroughly in my presentations in the Fundamentals of Appliance Repair training course. If you or your technicians would like more in depth learning on these topics, check out the Fundamentals course. We offer online, comprehensive, up-to-date, technical training for appliance technicians in the 21st century!
