AFTER FEW POWER OUTAGES, FREEZER TEMPERATURE KEEPS BOUNSING BETWEEN 5 AND 20 DEGREES, REFRIGIRATOR SEEMS TO WORKING FINE AND KEEPS TEMPERATURE.


Check the cabinet temperature with an independent thermometer. If it is does keep a stable temperature the problem would probably be electronic.

A power outage is often accompanied by a voltage surge. Sensitive electronics and computers can be damaged by a voltage surge. People are used to protecting personal computers with surge protectors but fail to realise these days almost everything is a computer or contains a computer. Radios and tv sets are computers and so are cars and even the humble toaster these days has some computing power.
Today almost everything but the cheapest of appliances should be protected. A minimum surge protection can be obtained by using an area surge protector.

Magnavox MDR537H/F7 no power


Some surge protectors cut off all power, when they reach the surge protection limit in joules. Power strips have reset buttons to restore power. Try plugging it directly into the electrical wall socket. If it works, then purchase a new surge protector. The DVD recorder may have a internal fuse that has burned open.

Carrier Weathermaker 8000 Furnace Flame Surges on start up


The fuel is controlled by the gas valve, the amount of gas is controlled by the regulator, I would verify that the inlet gas pressure is within the limits of the gas valve/regulator. The surging is likely the fault of the regulator and could be as simple as a spec of something in the orifice that allows gas pressure on the top of the gas regulator diaphragm. With the surge there must be an accompanied change in gas pressure at the gas valve outlet to the burners, use a "U" bend manometer to verify as they are the most simple and accurate and react instantly with no "averaging" software to wonder about.

What is the difference between a regular power strip and a surge protector?


A power strip is what's used for plugging in multiple appliances to one outlet. A surge protector is different in that it is designed to prevent electrical surges from too many things plugged in, bad weather or lightening. Usually things like air conditioners with heavy motors are plugged into surge protectors.

When I light my grill only one side of the burner has a flame, on all 3 burners. I cleaned everything and even cleaned each hole in the burners. What's next?


This is a common problem with grills purchased after 2001. There is a new safety feature inside the regulator called a 'surge protector'. If you open your propane bottle valve too quickly or if you try attaching a tank with the tank valve in the 'open' position, the propane wants to 'surge' into the grill.

When the propane surges into the regulator (located on the grill hose) the 'surge protector' (inside the regulator) kicks on. When this happens you will not be able to get your grill lit, and if you do, it will be a small blue flame and the grill will not heat up.

So what to do if you trip the surge protector and can't get your grill to light or heat up?

Shut the tank off and shut the valves on the grill off. Disconnect the tank from the grill hose. When you disconnect the tank from the hose you will hear the excess pressure of propane release. This is an indication that you have re-set the regulator's surge protector.

Now that you have deactivated or reset the surge protector, reconnect the tank. Make sure the valve on the tank and the valves on the grill are in the closed and in the off position. After you reconnect the tank to the hose, SLOWLY open the tank valve (making sure the valves on the grill are in the OFF position).

Since you have slowly opened the valve on the tank, the propane did not surge into the regulator and the surge protector did not activate.

Now open 1 valve on the grill and light it. You should get a nice flame. If your grill has more than one valve, open each following valve in sequential order to extend the flames to the other burners.

Thanks for reading and I hope this helps.
