The major appliance industry has a shortage of qualified technicians. The key word is qualified. As in any craft, there will be people who will be “working at it” but their performance will be below industry standards.

The philosophy behind this text is that one cannot be an effective appliance service technician if basic concepts are not fully understood.

Everyone understands that electricity makes an appliance work.

However, if technicians don’t understand where electricity comes from and how it does its job, it affects their ability to troubleshoot a problem in an electrical circuit.

Likewise, in order to effective evaluate the performance of a refrigeration system, a grasp of the fundamental concepts of the simple “mysteries” of heat transfer is necessary.

Vocational instructors have long recognized that eliminating the mysteries behind basic concepts is the foundation of technical education, and that a confident, able technician can only emerge after this has been accomplished.

For this reason, this text provides a simple and direct approach to the fundamentals of electricity and refrigeration related to the operating functions of refrigerators, freezers, room air conditioners, washing machines, clothes dryers, dishwashers, gas and electric ranges, and microwave ovens.
