    Would freezing temperatures to -10F affect the condition of a microwave oven with LED display left in a unheated cabin over the winter. Is it better to leave unit plugged in [with power] or to unplug it?

Just spoke with a vizio tech and they said the temp to operate is 41 degrees F. As long as temps don't go below -4 degrees F your tv should be ok. But if you are going to turn it on the temp needs to be no lower than 41 degrees F. I would let the room and tv warm up to at least 65 to 70 before I would turn it on.

It shouldn't have any bad effects on the display. When LCD panels get cold they may exhibit slow response time, like trails or a persistent display when action is moving. As long as you don't experience SUDDEN temperature changes you should be OK

Can I leave a dehumidifier in an unheated cottage for the winter? Where will my answer appear?


you can leave it turned off emptied in the unheated cottage. but i would not reccomend letting it run or stay with water in the tank. as water expand when it freezes. and will break the tank. also . dehumidifiers do nothing in freezing condition other than waste energy. so empty the tank and store it for the winter.

and your answer will appear right here :)

I have a Mitsubishi wd-60735 TV. it is in an unheated garage. Will the cold winter temperatures damage anything? Do I need to bring it inside?


it used to be an issue from when older projection TV's were fluid cooled , but modern lcd projection tv (like this one) don't have any issues in cold weather other than it will take several minutes till picture comes into focus in extreme cold weather , but should not give any long lasting effects once its up at operating temps one thing though don't move it once its hot during cold weather or lamp light source will go out , one thing that will cause long term problems is if its subjected to high humidity (water) this causes all sort of corrosion problems in sets of all types

I need tobuy a sewing machine that I can leave over the winter in an unheated cabin we use only from June to October. The temperatures are below freezing for most of the winter.


Check into a more mechanical machine. Pfaff makes several really nice mechanical models. They feature lots of stitch types and capabilities. They will have push buttons without LCD screens and setting lights. They are well built will sew through several layers of jean material or a few layers of auto seat belt are not an issue.

Leave it plugged in. It won't over freeze. If the outside air is cold then it won't need to run as much to bring down the temp-nature is doing that. So when the weather gets warm it will run to keep everything frozen. Hope this helps. Google burdfrenzy

Can i put a lcd or plasma tv in an unheated garage?


would not recommend. feel the heat coming off the screen when it is running, and take notice of how fast it heats up. Any rapid change in temperature can have a devistating effect on glass. That is a pretty expensive unit to take a chance with especially since the panel cost almost as much as the set to replace.

Worried about winter storage


Extreme low temperature may effect the operation of the electronics, but unless you plan of using them in a freezing environment there will be no ill effects from the cold. These units are shipped in unheated trailers all over and routinely are exposed to freezing temperatures.

Thanks for using Fix Ya, please take the time to give this solution a Fix Ya rating.
