Hi,

Offhand, if reset or software would not address the issue. Might it be a hardware problem. If everything else works except the "warm up time", then it is probably the sensor the detects internal temp. Assuming that it is no longer under warranty, then perhaps one can venture a DIY (do-it-yourself). To open, remove the 4 screws and unsnap the lock/clip on the end.. This page for another unit/model might give you insights. The temperature sensor is located on the LCD assembly. incidentally, it has been noted that some cable connections do get loose specially on the hard drive. Pls check all connectors.

Just a start, do postback how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

Initially, try to reset the unit. Remove the battery for about 10 mins. Software/Firmware update can fix the problem. Go to the manufacturer's website and download the latest update.

When the motor is cold and the outside temperature is below 70 the car will not stay running. Will die with in 30 seconds or so of starting, then you have to wait a minute or two befor the car will start...


Are there any service engine soon lights on associated with this problem?

Possible CTS (Coolant Temperature Sensor) or another sensor giving faulty data for the cool air temperature.

Check spark and gas delivery when cool, below 70 deg. If the spark is not being delivered or the fuel injectors are not delivering fuel at this temperature, it will explain why it doesn't run right until it is warmed up.

Worst refrigerator I've ever owned!


Your probablem is either your defrost timer and/or your Defrost thermostadt. Your defrost heaters are staying on too long and these two items control that.Once the defrost time turns on your heaters the Thermostadt will turn them of at between 55 and 70 degress then the fridge sets for 20 more minutes to start up again but the heaters will be off.

Aprilaire 700 humidifier not adding any humidity


Thanks for your Question,
Sounds to me like you have a calcium build up in the Solenoid, which is restricting flow to the unit for proper operation, you might even have a bit of restriction in the copper line feeding the Solenoid, replacement of the solenoid would probably take care of your problem, one quick tip, in the spring and summer months, its a good idea to shut the water off to the unit, this should make the Solenoid last a little longer, hope this was helpful to ya, please let me know, thanks again,

My Mgellan 700 was working fine for many years.


ok56,

Thanks for using Fixya 1st of all.

This problem has surfaced MANY times. It has been solved by numerous solutions. Without replacing the circuit board behind the keypad or the LCD I do NOT know a way to solve this. There never was a definite solution that remedies this. Possibly unplugging/replugging the ribbon cable from the LCD. Sorry I couldn't be of more assistance. Let me know if anything changes.

Amana Convection oven not controlling temp


I have just checked the baking guide in the manual and have found that it may not be us after all. (Maybe this is why they telll us to read the whole manual. Well, I never have) According to the cooking time for Baking, the range is very extensive. For example, an angel cake at 350 could take from 28-50 minutes, buscuits at 375-400 could take 8-16 minutes, layer cakes at 350-375 could take 25-40 minutes, pound cakes at 325-350 could take 45-70 minutes and fresh pies at 400-450 could take 35-60 minutes. Basically, the baking directions on the box means absolutely nothing to use Amana oven owners. We have no choice but to cook our food or baked goods until they are cooked, whenever that may be. :) Linda

Temperature below safe level


I've fixed that error by swapping out the PCB board (or the keypad board). Which you can't very easily do that.. unless of course you have a boneyard of these lying around. Additionally, it could be the Hard Drive, this error hasn't been narrowed down to any one specific cause to my knowledge. I'll take it off your hands if your going to buy another one though.
