Question about Amana ACF3355 Gas Kitchen Range

2 Answers

Hi. I've recently replaced 3 ECMs on my Amana ACF3355aw. The first one was original, about 8 years, and started throwing f1-7 and f1-1 codes. Ordered a new one, and it worked for about 2 days, then started throwing f1-1 codes as well. Ordered a replacement (warranty), and it never worked at all, just threw F1-1 codes immediately. I put the second one back in, and it works fine to about 350 degrees. Until today, when it started throwing an F1-8. to my knowledge there's no other control module in this oven. Am I going to need to replace (inspect first) the wiring, or is there something else going on? Can't believe that we've got 3 bad ECMs within a month. Thanks.

    Yup, saw all those already. Unfortunately I've already replaced the temp sensor as well - not getting the F1-1 since that point. I'm beginning to think that I've got some chafed wiring in the harness. Guess it's time to take teh back off the oven and chase down ALL the wires... :(

    anyone else want to take a shot at this?

    I've just called for another replacement. Hopefully they don't get tired of me.. :)

This is the third time it is making me answer this. Hopefully it does not make you mad bhkrause. But it won't let me answer any other questions. But once again, I think that you have another bad ECM.

This page has your error codes:
The oven control sensor might be bad, or intermittent, is the codes are right. Since you've replaced the ECM so much, it must be some other component, and it could be the sensor.
Go to this page and select your exact model, and you will see some neat diagrams and parts lists:
Good luck, hope this helps, and thanks for using FixYa.

Could P0121 and P0430 codes be comming up due to other issues with my truck?

You need to study OBD Systems

You & the rest of the world have a hang up about
clearing things & believes that is a repair or fix,it is not

You have 8 monitors that have to run

When you clear the check engine light, you clear ALL DATA,
now you have nothing to use to diagnose your problems, until
the monitors run again

You find codes using Google

OBD PO420/430--- failed exhaust converter

Have to find out why & fix the issue or it fails again

You have no vehicle,motor,etc shown here

Codes have nothing to with replacing parts-lesson #1

All code related issues have to be component tested, just
to find a problem,anything,correct that & move on

You have the code reader, why would you remove a battery cable?

Once that cable comes off, the data is gone, no waiting 30 min

I guess your asking about PO420 /PO430

I have no idea how old the vehicle is
Exhaust converters should last 14 years or more

With the 2000 & newer vehicles, people do absolutely
nothing & ruin them is 4 to 6 years, from basically lack of
knowledge & neglect

Your codes are coming back, because when you drive
7 of the 8 Emission Monitors run again,you have not made the required repairs & the computer see's the out of range parameters
& your back to square one.

Lesson #2 You not gonna ever replace any parts-- until you
know how they work & how to test them

You do not want to replace good parts with new for no reason

After replacing the Battery in My 2003 ML 350, The radio stop working and the engine starts but do not idle. Does any one know what could be the cause of this problem

It's a Mercedes, so electrical issues are extremely common. The ML especially of that year is about the most problematic car Mercedes ever produced.
It has issues everywhere from short circuits due to the wiring shrouding breaking down over time, to ECMs/ECUs failing without necessarily any good reason to. As there are too many faults on that particular vehicle to mention, it won't be easy to diagnose this one over the internet. You will likely require an auto electrician, and perhaps not even just one workshop to manage all types of issues. My best advice once you've dealt with this one and the vehicle is working is to sell it. You won't stop working on expensive issues with this mark and model.

I have a 1995 Triumph Thuderbird Sport with 13,853 original miles. I have had this bike since 1999. My bike has recently been over heating and then shutting down. I noticed my coolant was low so and...

Sounds like either your thermostat isn't working, or the switch on the side of the rad which tells the fan to switch on is faulty. They are cheap and easy to replace using a Haynes manual or similar.

I have Mazda 3 (2005) 1.6 engine. CEL is on when temperature is below 10-12 degrees Celsius and speedometer doesn't work. Mechanic said it is P0610 error and that I have to replace PCM. Could it be fixed...

If you are based in the USA, all ECMs on US sold vehicles have a federal emissions compliance warranty covering ECM breakdown (Which a P0610 is) for 8 years or 80,000 miles. ALL, and dont listen if the dealership says 5-50 or 3-36, its federal law, and they must comply unless they can prove owner non-compliance damaged the component. (IE-aftermarket performance reflash installed, aftermarket components installed that connect to ecm in any way, or repairs that affect voltage or electronics have been cited such as wrong alternator installed or aftermarket alarms with remote starting that were improperly wired).

Hi and welcome to FixYa. I am Kelly.

You did not mention if the dryer was even warm to the touch during operation.

The generic service manual can be found here:

I would follow the troubleshooting process in step 9 of page 21.

To gain access to the unit you will need to remove the service access panel Pg 28 of manual

Gas burner circuits steps are on page 32

A little about heat control circuits. They are series circuits and any one of the following can prevent the dryer from heating.

1. Motor switch
2. heat control
3. cycle thermostat
4. high limit thermostat
5. thermistor
6. heating element

in addition to the above

For gas burners

1. Gas valve
2. Gas safety valve
3. Ignitor
4. Flame sensor

Most dryers have at least 5 of the 6 components listed in the first set of components above. The high limit thermostat is replaced by the thermistor in newer models. Thermistors are a one time fail item and if it has opened it must be replaced.

The warranty for this dryer is as follows:

1 year full coverage

Limited Warranty

After one year from the date of original retail purchase, Amana will provide a replacement part, f.o.b. Amana, Iowa, as listed below, for any part that fails due to a defect in materials or workmanship. The owner will be responsible for paying all other costs including labor, mileage, and transportation.

Second through Third Year
Amana will provide any part.

Third through Fifth Year
Amana will provide the drive motor or timer.

Third through Tenth Year
Amana will provide the cabinet assembly should the part rust through.

Amana will provide the Stainless Steel inner drum if so equipped.

Thanks for using FixYa.
