Question about U-Line 75BWC

Stat thanks. I took the two screws out of the temp setting knob and pulled that out. There were two wires connected to it that had ends on them that slid onto the temp setting device. when I pulled one off and touched the end I got a little shock. Is that not the thermostat?

    Maybe this is just beyond me but when I removed the housing where the temp knob was connected, it had two wires attached to it. Both had connectors on the end that slid onto the part. I pulled those two off. Are those the two wires that I should cross? Since they have the ends on them, I don't see how I can connect them together without having to cut the ends off and strip off some of the insulation.

Yes that is the 2 connectors to join together. if the connectors are not insulated, just tape them together or if an insulated type, use something like a paper clip pushed into each

Always disconnect from mains when you do that sort of thing.
disconnect from mains, short the two wires together - just tape them together - and see if cooling starts

1. Pull of the OVEN TEMP knob

2. Loosen both screws on back of the knob

3. Adjust lower screw so it moves in the desired direction. You will hear and feel the notches as you turn the knob. Each notch changes the temperature about 10 degrees F.

Kenmore Model # 110.26842691 my Heavy Duty Wash setting is not working.. is it a bad switch


The cycle switch is faulty or the Heavy Duty Wash terminal connection is loose. Check it first before ordering a replacement part.

Disconnect power to the washer prior to servicing to avoid the risk of electric shock.

The console is held to the cabinet by two screws hidden under the console end cap trims. Remove the end cap trims to access the screws by pulling or prying its top off the console.

Remove the screws at the front bottom corners of the console. Once the screws are removed, slightly pull the console to the front then flip it to the rear of the washer to access the switch.

Check the switch for any physical damage. Disconnect the wiring harness from the switch terminals and clean both the terminals and the connector. Reseat the connector several times to ensure good connections.

Replace the switch (part #3949181) when damage is found or when cleaning and reseating the connectors do not resolve the problem.

Pull the knob off the switch shaft and release the switch from the console. Install the new switch in place and insert the knob to the switch shaft.

Flip the console back to the top of the cabinet and align the tabs in the console end caps with the slots on the cabinet. Insert the tabs into the slots and secure the console to the cabinet with the two screws previously removed.

Pull the thermostat knob off. get a small flaslight and shine it into the stem for the knob. You will see a small screw down inside. turn the screw counterclockwise to adjust the temp to the dial. A little bit( 1/16th of a turn) at a time

Temperature control knob turns but doesn't change temp.


the heater control valve is visible through the speaker cut-out; it's at the end of the plastic heater control rod, inside the car - not on the other side of the firewall! It's connected to the valve with a plastic "universal joint".

Check that the valve is actually being turned by the rod. The connection might not be good (pulled apart or broken), and or the valve might be stuck.

Temperature never reaches 375


Pull the temp knob off and you should see a small screw in the middle of the stem. This is your calibration screw. Turn it about 1/4 turn to increase the temp. If you don't have one, then you may have an element that is out. Can you take the bottom off to see it. Also, there may be a wire that is not making good connection.

Rode all day in snow brought inside to charge now power irratic


I would take the motor controller out, remove the end cap without wire on it and smell the insides. If it smells burned, you need to take out the other 5 screws and see what smoked. In mine, I had corrosion and Q5 was missing 25% of the package. I cleaned the corrosion with a old tooth brush and 99.9% alcohol that I had. Replaced the part and all was fine. There is a trick to installing the bracket that holds Q5 and D11 to the case (a heatsink). I put the board and wires in the case and secured with 4 screws. I put the assembly in a vise with the side hole on the bottom. Align the bracket with the outside hole on top of Q5 and D11 (use a small wire that goes thru both holes) I took an x-acto blade- a flat one and slid it on top of the bracket that is now laying on top of Q5 and D11. By pulling up slightly you can put pressure on the bracket holding it in place. Insert the retaining screw and other end cap.

If you loosen the wire that is connected to the gripping machanism first , you will have long enough wire to put it throu the brake grip first then tighten it back at the wheel gripping area.

After cleaning coils and in back of fridge, it appears that the defrost keeps cycling every 5 minutes


hi
Step 1:
 If the compressor runs all the time, turn the control knob to the OFF position. If the compressor still runs, unplug the unit, then pull off the control knob and remove the screws holding the thermostat in place. Pull out the thermostat and remove either the red or the blue wire from its terminal. Plug in the unit. If the compressor doesn't run, the thermostat is faulty. Replace it with a new thermostat.

Step 2: 
If the compressor runs after the wire is removed from its terminal, there is probably a short circuit somewhere in the unit's wiring. In this case, don't try to fix the problem yourself; call a professional service person.

Step 3: 
If the refrigerator or freezer runs but the box doesn't cool, unplug the unit and remove the thermostat with a screwdriver. Disconnect both wires from the thermostat. Tape the ends of the wires together with electrical tape, and plug in the appliance. If the refrigerator starts and runs normally, the thermostat is faulty. Replace it with a new one of the same type. Connect the new thermostat the same way the old one was connected.

Step 4: 
If the freezer compartment is normal but the refrigerator box doesn't cool, set the dials that control both compartments to mid-range. Remove these knobs (they're usually friction-fit). Then unscrew the temperature control housing; you'll see an air duct near the control. Replace the knob on the freezer thermostat and turn the control to the OFF position. Open the refrigerator door and look closely at the air duct. If this duct doesn't open wider in about ten minutes, the control is faulty. Replace the control with a new one of the same type. Connect the new control the same way the old one was connected.

Stove to hot burns everything


This is a simple fix as long as the oven is heating properly and the only problem is that the temp seems higher than what the temperature control knob indicates...

Purchase an inexpensive oven thermometer from the hardware store and place it in the center of the oven. Set the temperature control knob to 350 degrees F.

Check the temperature indicated on the thermometer in the oven after 20 minutes. If it's not within 5 degrees of 350, you'll need to adjust the oven's temperature control.

Turn the oven off.

Pull off the temperature control knob. You can usually pull it off by hand, pry it off with a thin screwdriver, or slide a piece of cord up behind it and pull.

Note which kind of temperature control knob you have. There are two types: The first has a screw in the shaft of the knob; the second has an adjustment dial on the back of the knob.

Adjust the temperature with the first type by turning the screw in the shaft with a screwdriver. Turn it clockwise to lower the temperature; turn it counterclockwise to raise the temperature. Turn the screw just a little bit in the appropriate direction.

Adjust the temperature with the second type of knob by turning the dial on the back of the knob. (This dial is held in place with a screw or a clip that will need to be removed.) Raise the temperature setting by turning the dial counterclockwise; lower it by turning the dial clockwise. The notches are typically in 5 or 10-degree increments.

Test the oven temperature again.

Repeat until you're in the right temperature range.

Good Luck!
