I too ilike to try to save a product by fixing it.  My standard statement is :if it already broken I can't make it worse."  However the problem I run into now is that many appliances no longer have repair manuals available.  I have found this to apply a lot to Kenmore products.  I used to be able to get information on things like a freezer.  I had one stop working and the only way I found help was to look at lots of online postings.  I finally found reference to a 9v battery.  The manual that came with the freezer mentioned that some models had them, but there was no information at to where they were located.  I finally found it at the very bottom of the front, because an online note gave me a clue.

I had to resort to a repair service to fix a Kenmore washer because the owner's manual offered no help, and there was no repair manual.
