Sounds like you have a gas leak on your air con.
When the air con runs on heating it runs at a much higher pressure and has more chance of it leaking. I suggest you get a refrigeration tech out to test it out.
There are other things that it could be but none of them are fixable for someone that dosent have a refrigeration license. Sorry but hope it helps

Frigidaire 18.2 cuft top freezer refridgerator either melts or freezes everything

The defroster heating elements are burnt out and won't defrost and causes system to freeze up. Then it won't cool. Unplug ice will melt off cooling fins then it will cool till it freezes up again. Install new defrost heating element. Replace both.

I've a Medion Akoya, it keeps running hot till it freezes

What happens if you just use the power cord without the battery being in the laptop?

Three things that will cause a laptop to overheat:

1) Dust - Dust inside the laptop, dust clogging the vents and fans, dust around the cpu and heatsink. Remedy - take the laptop apart and blow out the dust with a can of compressed air.

2) A Fan not working - Remedy- Replace the fan.

3) The Thermal Paste on the cpu and heatsink has either dried up or is too thin to keep the unit cool. Remedy - Apply a fresh coat of Thermal Paste to the CPU and Heat Sink.

You could try a Laptop Cooling Pad which has fans on it and the laptop sits on it to keep cool. It plugs into the laptops usb port. Try Tiger Direct at:

When the site comes up just type: Laptop Cooling Pad in the white search box at the top of the website then press GO. Sort the returned results by Price Low to High

Below is a link to one I use most times for people experiencing overheating issues but can't afford the expense of going inside the laptop. $12.99

Hi there, I have two Fujitsu DC Inverter split units to heat my flat (england). The temperatures have dropped significantly -2 and below. This causes the outlet pipes to freeze up and when the units...

Normal cool temp 23 to 25 and heat mode 29 to 31. And regrading defrosting your pipelines no need any tray. You can insulate with Armaflex tube which is mostly used for best insulation. Hope there won't be further water leak.

Insignia plasma model ns-pdp50hd-09: When powered on the unit functions great for 15-20 minutes and then slowly begins to fade out to a black screen while audio maintains output.

if you want to narrow it down a bit-go to radio shack get some freeze spray.remove back-lay it down -use a blow dryer to heat each board till it goes out-then use the freeze to cool each board down till it works-do it a few times to make sure you get the rite board---now go to to find your board

LG Air Conditioner/Heat Unit spits cold air

I believe the "FP" probably stands for Freeze Protection and it's there to prevent your outside coil from freezing up and causing your head pressure to drop. To do this, it briefly has to reverse the cycle from heating to cooling. This is normal in a heat pump.

Gateway laptop 450ROG freezes up after it gets hot & screen frzs

This definitely sounds like a heat problem. The system fan should cool it, but there may be a lot of dirt in the heat sink or along the path that the fan blows air. The first thing I would try is to get a can of canned air and blow it into all the vents under and on the side of the computer. If it is dusty, keep your face away.

You didn't say, but if you let the system cool down for a while (maybe 15 minutes or so) and start it up again and the same thing happens, it['s definitely a heat issue.

Sound and freezing

there is a processor in the pc/laptop/notebook it gets hot while you on the keep it cool there is a fan .if that fan is not spinning properly or getting blocked by any dust particles this is also possible that fan is now turned weak as its motor is turned it needs replacement to keep the processor cool.also to avoid further damage just dont use your notebook till it get repaired.
