Worry about it when it hits 180. A temp of 100 is barely warm.

HP DV7-3085DX Shut down at 120 degrees C

No solution, but that is really hot. Hot enough to start frying other components. Eventually it will.

25 psi is about at 30 degree evap and 200 psi is about an ambient of 100 degrees. These are higher than normal but it is probably due to a "hot box pull down", meaning the conditioned space is hotter than normal due to the compressor not running. Now, the issue seems to be, according to your description, the condenser fan motor. It should not loose any of it's RPM's. If it slows down, the head pressure goes up which increases the "Load" on the compressor and causing it to go out. I would start there.

My 2004 chevy tahoe reads that it overheating when in idle only. once starts moving goes to normal tempature reading. Why does it do that? Also notice that it has no engine light coming on when it does...

this is simple, when the engine is idling there is no air going through the radiator to cool the engine ,but when the car is moving there is air going through the & cools the engine, the problem might be that the fans are not coming on that is why the temp. goes up to will need to find out why the fans are not working, maybe a blown fuse or faulty temperature sensor the activates the fans......hope this helps......cheers.

Got 1983 mercedes benz 500 SE.. running hot after idleing for longer than 30 mins and dont last long while driving.. i changed the thermostat and the radiator cap still having same problem.. what else...

this car is equipped with an electric cooling fan, best guess is it is not working, that is why it gets hot when idling or driving around town in stop and go traffic. but when you get out on the road it cools down because their is more air moving through the radiator. the fans should come on at around 222 degrees take a look i bet they are not coming on at all.

When idling my jeep overheats. The cooling fan is running and it speeds up when temperature goes up. The temperature gets close to 260 degrees and the engine tries to stall. when I start moving it cools...

At idling speed an engine does build up a lot of heat and the cooling fan will kick in. In slow moving traffic or traffic jams the temperature gauge can touch the red - particularly on hot days. The reason it cools down when you start moving is because of the air flow through the radiator.

Presumably there are no leaks from the cooling system otherwise you would have mentioned it. In normal circumstances the fan will not be running as you are driving at speed, as the air-flow through the radiator is sufficient to cool things. The fan only kicks in to get rid of excess heat - and this usually occurs at idling speed or after you have parked the car.

If the fan is running all the time as you drive, this points to either a fault in the fan switch, or the car is running too hot. presumably in normal driving the fan isn't running and the temperature gauge reads normal?

It is common - in stationary traffic many cars overheat (particularly big engined models) try to stall and 'cut out'. Restarting can be difficult until the engine cools down.

Is your car overheating in normal driving conditions or just at idle speed? Overheating in normal driving conditions can be caused by things like a failing water pump, blocked radiator, collapsed hose, faulty thermostat or, in the worst case scenario, cylinder head problems.

Overheating at idling speed is 'common'. Check your coolant level. If your car isn't using/losing coolant then there probably is no major problem. You can flush out the cooling system and refill with new coolant - and also check your radiator. Are the cooling fins crumbling with age? Or maybe they're partly clogged with insects and debris from the road? A blast with a hosepipe wil sort that out ..

The question is how much does your car overheat in normal driving? If it doesn't .. it appears as though you have nothing to worry about as such. Most cars have 2 speed fans... the 2nd faster stage kicks in at some point dependant on engine temperature. Perfectly normal.

Washer is a top load set it hot water and starts with hot and then will go cold willnot stay on hot G E Profile ,model wwa8350g

most new washers sense water temp and will try to adj final tub water temp by alternately running cold or hot as needed ..most hot settings are not faucet temp but a predetermined temp so if your hot water is 140 degrees coming in the control will switch the cold on to bring final tub water temp down to preset ..which could be as low as 100 degrees the industry's way of energy conservation
