Heya,
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

I have a 7kw Kohler marine generator that shuts of when boat gets up on plane New impeller New fuel filter I started it runs for a while then shuts off It takes a bit to start but runs for 20 plus hrs


I take it that this unit runs the power on board and is permanently fixed in the boat
you mention new impeller so logically that means that it is water cooled drawing the cooling water from outside (underneath the boat)
pursuing logic further if that is the case then there is a shut down circuit for the water flow to prevent overheating should the water inlet become blocked ( weeds, plastic cloth etc)
from your question and statement I would be looking in that area to make sure water flow is not restricted or the protection circuit is operational ( no corrosion in terminals and wires )

How to keep your car below boiling poimt. ALL CARS!!!


most times in the heat your cars cooling system can over load, to stop overheating, always check your vehicles radiator water never the overflow resevoir.

always make sure your top radiator hose is hot, when running and your thermo fans come on automatically when on average heat temp. (half way).

make sure you cannot hear any noises ( clunking, grinding etc) from the waterpump, and always make sure you dont see water leaking from the vehicle ( except when air con is on).

if you do spring a leak always get it repaired ASAP as delay may further damge your cooling system, eg, head gasket and or head, effects may be warped, bent or cracked cylinder head.

always check your radiator and top up if needed at least ONCE A WEEK to avoid damage. and keep your overflow resevoir kept on the correct level.

cooling system failure can produce a big effect on your engines running capability and also your wallet!!!!!

keep your car cool in the heat!!

and also note, coolant or anti freeze does not keep your car cool, it is a corrosion inhibitor and only prevents corrosion and muck in and around your cooling system, your thermo fans keep your car cool!!!!

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:

http://www.tigerdirect.com

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 shopjimmys.com 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 unit.to keep it cool there is a fan .if that fan is not spinning properly or getting blocked by any dust particles this happens.it is also possible that fan is now turned weak as its motor is turned weak.so it needs replacement to keep the processor cool.also to avoid further damage just dont use your notebook till it get repaired.
