Does anyone know whether this fridge is supposed to have a variable-speed fan? Mine is varying. I don't know whether it is a feature or a problem. It sounds as if something may be loading up, electrically speaking, intermittently, and dragging down the fan voltage. As the fan spins down to the lower "speed," or back up again, it passes through some kind of resonance, producing a tone or moaning sound. It sounds as if it is haunted by a ghost. Yes, it cools OK, but I think it's running too much lately.
Genuine appliance part sales (google it) sold me a motherbaord fror 98 bucks, took less than 5 minutes to install and thought the fridget did not work because it was running so quitely, tried to resolve issue thru GE and got the run around,i would have had to pay for a service call for the estimate and they would not bring a motherbaord with them, the only tool you need is a 1/4 socket or nut driver....done too easy...

Do you mean lost as in 'completely missing' or as in 'stopped working'?
The only moving parts are the on/off switch and the speed control knob and variable resistor. On mine, I had to replace the variable resistor pot. You have to get one with the same resistance rating. If you know what it is, you can get them off ebay. Doesn't have to be designed for a scrollsaw. They're all the same whether they're for a saw or for a radio volume control. Only the resistance needs to be matched. (Well, the way the knob fits on the post has to match too.)
Independent means that it does not depend on, does not rely on, is not affected by anything. A dependent variable is a variable is affected by some other variable. If. the independent variable happens to change its value, the dependent variable must comply and change also according to the rule that connects the two variables.
An example of independent variable is time. It runs its course, not affected by anything else. Maybe a money example will be more transparent.
Suppose you have a part-time job to support you in your studies. In a part-time job, the number of weekly work hours is not fixed in advance. Some weeks you are relatively free and can work more hours. Other weeks you have exams and can't do as much.
Let us consider the situation: your weekly salary. You understand that your weekly salary will vary in relation to the total number of hours you work during a given week. The more you work, the more you earn. The less you work, the less you earn. Clearly there is a link between the number of work hours, and the weekly salary. You have two quantities that vary from week to week. They vary: so they are called variables (variable= capable of varying/changing its value).
The two variables are x= number of hours worked in a given week, and y= weekly salary earned in the same given week.
You and only you can decide of your own free will on the number of hours you will work that week. However, once you choose/decide how many hours you will work, your salary is calculated according to a set rule your boss and yourself had agreed to.
Of the two variables in the situation describing you weekly salary, the number x of hours worked is the independent variable. The weekly salary y is the dependent variable: the amount of money you get depends on/ is decided by the number of hours you worked.
Please use a dictionary to see the meaning of the verb to depend on, and the adjectives dependent, independent.
When conducting an experiment, a researcher usually has a dependent and independent variable. The independent variable is the variable that can be changed or manipulated (think of it as a cause). The dependent variable is the variable that depends on the independent variable (think effect).
For example, if you wanted to test whether practice improves an athlete's performance (lets say number of touchdowns):
Practicing (or not) is what you can manipulate. It is the independent variable.
Number of touchdowns is the dependent variable. The results depend on whether or not the athlete practiced.
Okay -- first off, I don't know where she got that number from, but that's idiotic.
The variable-speed switch will provide different readings depending on where it's turned to. If the switch is busted ("open), it will typically display a reading of 'infinity' on your ohmmeter.
And yes -- the best place to find a replacement is Radio Shack, since Casablanca discontinued them.
Casablanca's variable-speed ceiling fans -- specifically the "SlumberQuiet" ones, which were made from circa 1980 or 1981 to the early/mid 1990s when variable-speed was discontinued -- are well-known for breaking down. The problem is almost never the potentiometer (variable-speed dial). Rather, the problem is almost always the resistor which is mounted in the heat-sink inside the fan's motor housing. There are NO replacements left for these -- so Casablanca makes a "variable-speed to 3-speed conversion kit", which will convert your fan to a more normal 3-speed pull-chain (hi-med-low) setup.
I hope that helps! If you have any other questions, please feel free to ask!
