Jenn-Air JDB2100AWS - Heater doesn't turn off

I picked up a Jenn-Air JDB2100AWS for free - the problem with it (as I was told) is that the heater (cal-rod) never shut off and over heated the unit. The sound deadening insulation (mastic type material bonded to the outside of the steel tub) was melted away in some areas. I re-adhered the sound deadening insulation using a heat gun and ran the unit (hooked up the electrical and filled it with water by hand) - it appears to operate fine (pumps out okay, cal-rod works, rinses / spins inside, etc).

Any ideas how I can fix the system so that the cal-rod shuts off at the appropriate time? Is there a thermostat to replace or should I just replace the circuit board? I have no problem replacing a few parts to insure that I've covered the problem so that it's not a fire hazard.

Dishwasher is not draining


Dishwasher not draining issue usually occurs due to kinked drain pipe, clogged drain filter or drain pump. Check the drain hose for any visible clogging, remove if present. If no visible lint is present then remove then turn off the dishwasher and remove the drain hose and check for any visible clogging. If still not visible then the drain filter or drain pump is clogged and you'll need to clean the drain filter and drain pump.

Please note that dishwashers don't drain out the complete water such that heating element doesn

Re: Refrigator will not stay cold

defrost problems are caused by 3 things
bad: 1) defrost timer/ timer board 2) defrost heater (in freezer) or burnt wire going to the heater 3) bi-metal thermostat (round metal piece attached to the coils with     at least 2 wires going to it)
a good technician can test components without the machine running. all you need is a simple $5 meter any tech that gets angry, show him/her the door!
