Fridgefreezer motor switches off correctly when low temperature is reached. Then sometimes it switches on again just fine; other times it fails to switch on and starts defrosting. When this happens I have to switch it off and on again, when is starts up correctly. Machine is somewhat elderly HF40Y001 type PF40 165

If my freezon would be low then why is it very cold air when I'm going on the road

because the temp difference between the hi and low side will be greater faster than a normally charged system the reason it cycles off is the keep the evap. from freezing up, but running to low on Freon can cause poor lubrication in the compressor causing damage to the compressor, yes it will blow very cold for a short period of time with a low charge

Brake warning light on dash and warning chime turn on, brakes seem fine, sometimes turns off, sometimes stays on.

the anti-lock brake pump could be sticking causing a code to turn the light on - i have a 1999 bonneville that does this sometimes in cold weather

What is a thermistor

A thermistor is a component whose
resistance changes when its temperature changes.
A thermistor is a special type of resistor whose
resistance decreases as its temperature increases.

A plot of resistance against temperature for
a thermistor is shown above. The plot is unusual
because it shows that a bigger current will flow
at a higher temperature. For most components, the
resistance increases as the temperature increases
and a smaller current flows at a higher temperature.
What is a Thermistor used for?
A thermistor can be used in a circuit to detect a
temperature change. For example, a thermistor may
be used to keep a freezer at the right temperature.
A circuit with a thermistor in it can switch the freezer on if the temperature gets too high and switch the freezer
off again when the correct low temperature is reached.
A thermistor can also be used to trigger a fire alarm. Thermistor are used in all Temperature controlled device and Motors to cut off
circuit when temperature rises over a certain limit to cut off power or trigger another circuit.

Electrolux freezer will not turn on automatically when termperature warms in compartment, controls don't appear to turn compressor on, any help would be appreciated?

Sounds like your thermostat is bad. You probably have to replace it and the sending unit also. Big job! Look for a manual at :

Kenmore elite upright freezer model 25326093100

It does sound like the thermostat is acting up. It could also be a defrost timer if it is a frost free model. The timer could be running slow and remaining in defrost longer than it is designed to. Thermostat can get erretic also and work fine sometimes nad then not work correctly another. When it is shut off after cycling off tap the thermostat. if it comes back on thgis could be your problem.

Your problem sounds to be fairly simple and common, it appears your ignitor has failed. Without suppling a model number I can not supply you with a part number you need. Good luck..

Showing a LP on display. What are the possible problems?

Here is the reason for that problem per the manufaturers web-site

The low-pressure switch senses the refrigerant pressure in the sealed refrigeration system to

protect against certain conditions that could be detrimental to compressor life. The switch shuts

the unit down in the event of loss of refrigerant, fan motor failure, evaporator freeze-up and

airflow blockage. The switch automatically resets when the pressure rises to normal operating

pressures. The display will show "LP" if this switch is tripped.

Evaporator Freezing

The low-pressure switch will shut the heat pump down when the evaporator starts to freeze.

When the unit starts to freeze the low-pressure switch will be tripped, causing the display to read
"LP" This will prevent the evaporator from becoming damaged or deformed.

If the air outside the heat pump is not warm enough to produce heat, the system will shut down.

The actual point at which your unit will shut down due to low temperature varies depending on

which model you purchased, current weather conditions, and the amount of sunlight reaching the

heat pump. The shutdown can occur anywhere within a wide range of temperatures, usually 45°F-

55°F. This is not a "fixed" range. We stress that climate conditions, sunlight, and various models

respond quite differently to low ambient temperature. A shutdown occurs because low

temperatures will activate the systems low-pressure safeguard switch (digital thermostats will

display a code "LP".) The unit will start up again when the temperature has raised enough to reset

this switch. Note: Low ambient temperature does not necessarily affect the Chiller models
or the cooling cycle of the heat/cool units.

How do i turn it on for the first time

hi there'
turning ac on,there are two switch on control panel of ac.find the thermostat control this signifies the room temperature you want,set this first to a maximum setting.another switch is for the motor compressor and fun motor.rotate the switch to fun first after a couple 15 second rotate again the switch to lo cool setting w8 for 10 to 15 sec. then rotae it again to hi cool there will be a sudden heavy change of blwing air and cooling effect then rotate set the thermosat switch to temperature comfortable to your feeling,observe the cycling process,because the compressor motor stop if the room temperature reached the set up temperature.stopping or switching off just rotate the switch of the compressor motor on off position.have a nice day fix my rate thank s a lot.

Maytag advanced cooking system oven does not preheat to correct temperature and fails to reach the correct temperature

Once you put the desired temperature, select a cook time and it should solve the heating issue. Atleast that what worked on mine.
