My PS3 powers off while playing a game after about 15-20minutes. after i turn it off and start, it works for another 15-20 min. Why is this happening?


It is probably overheating. Make sure you have you console in an open area. Do not put it into an entertainment center slot with the proper airflow. There should be room for air to circulate in the front and the back. Do not close any door while it's running. All you do is circulate warm air that only gets hotter around the console. If needed, use a small desk fan to blow air directly on the console to keep the temperature in check.

Good luck.

My danby 3.6 chest frezzer has stoped working, it was freezing fine yesterday, now its not even keeping cold


Hello,

Fan problem is one of the most common reasons for the freezer to start failing, this is called "frost free failure." Ice can build up on the evaporator coils over time, and this ice builds up until it starts blocking the fan. The fan is responsible for circulating cold air throughout the freezer, so if it is blocked the freezer will not be able to freeze any food. You can usually check this by removing an access panel in the back of the freezer to inspect the coils. If ice is built up on the coils, a hairdryer can assist in defrosting them.

It's also possible that the fan is not running at all. If the fan is burned out or the motor isn't running, cold air can't circulate through the freezer and everything will melt. You can normally hear the fan motor switch on and off from time to time. Listen for it and if you can't hear it coming on for an extended period of time, the motor may need repair or replacement. The wires connecting to the fan may be the problem, preventing the fan from receiving electricity.

Several other problems could be keeping your freezer from freezing:

There could be leaks in one or several of the hoses in the refrigerator, which results in the cold air being lost instead of circulating properly throughout the fridge and freezer.

If you have the freezer so full that the cold air can't circulate, your food will thaw even though the freezer isn't malfunctioning. Always leave some space open in the freezer and try to not store food right up against the cooling vents.

The thermostat might have shorted out, which means the freezer can't accurately determine how cold it is. If this is the case, the refrigerator would probably not be working, either.

If your defrost drain becomes clogged, the water in the line will just refreeze over and over again, which could damage the lines as well as the fan. Always check the drain and make sure no sludge is building up in it if you have a self-defrosting refrigerator.

Always try to keep the freezer door closed for long periods of time. The more the door is opened, the more warm air is let in and cold air is released. If the door is opened frequently, the freezer could be warming faster than the fridge can cool it, which will thaw your food.

I hope this helps........

Good luck.

I took apart and used dust sprayer on fan and cleaned it up good, but what is the heat sink I'm reading about? I only did the fan blades and area around it thinking that did it but it still shuts off ....


Heat sink is usually connected to the fan by copper tubes or fins, this is what disperses the heat from the CPU to outside the case. Sometimes the fan is directly on top of the heat sink but more often now the heat sink is next to the fan and outside air is drawn through these copper fins to remove the heat from the CPU.

Why is my laptop overheating?


You can try a Targus Lap cooler to circulate the air a little better. The fan may be working but just not as efficiently as it used to. You probably have noticed that it works longer and better in cooler rooms as well. A lap cooler will help with the cooling issue.

Overheat problem


Please be sure that your CPU fan is in full working order and the case fan(s) are working. Also keep the computer in a well ventilated area to allow good circulation of cool air. Another thing is to use compressed air and dust the heat sink and everything else out.

Check the circulation fan in the freezer compartment that circulates the cold to the fresh food compartment. If its not running, and no ice is on it to bind uo the blades, replace the motor.

Can't get temp in fridge to go below 50 F. Freezer works fine and makes ice. It started when our area had a heat wave and the inside of our house was 85+ most of the day. The ice maker stopped working,...


Have you checked the evaporator fan(freezer fan), This problem is hard to detect because the fan spins but not fast enough to circulate the chilled air thru the freezer and refrigerator.

Freezer fine- fridge temp is 51 degrees


I got the same problem. For some reason in the freezer part on the back wall there is a condensor and it keeps on getting all iced up and then there is not enough air pressure for the fan to circulate cold air to you fridge part. I took mine all apart used a hair dryer to thaw out everything which took out about 1 gallon of water from the hose in the bottom back of fridge. It fixed the problem for about 4 days and then froze up again, There must be some type of tempature sensor or automatic defroster not working like it shoud.Does anybody know? Help me too?

Bottom Freezer working but not side!


Typically the freezer air is circulated into the frige area to provide cooling. If the circ. fan is not working or the air ducts/channels/dampers are blocked with ice, food, etc. then no cool air will get from the freezer to the frige area. Check all the air channels and to see if the dampers are open along with the circulation fan running. The diagrams at the following link should help you see inside better. If your lower circulation fan is running then you likely have an air return/supply channel blocked with ice and will require an old style defrost (unplug unit and leave doors open for 24 hours to melt ice, etc.). If the fan isn't running then that needs to be replaced. Air channels can freeze up if a door is left open slightly overnight or other moisture enters the freezer/frige. http://www.partselect.com/MultiModels.aspx?ModelNum=ER6AHKXPQ&searchTerm=&RefineSearch=0
