My majestic fireplace lights and the burner lights and I turn on the switch and the burner stays lit for a minute or two then I hear a click and the burner and pilot light shut off

yes this would appear to me to be the classic symptoms of a bad thermistor , this little device proves that fire has lit (via heat) and keeps gas valve open , otherwise gas valve times out and shuts off (safety)

Water not heating

Hello. From the symptom you describe, it sounds like the control board has gone bad. I need the model number of your dishwasher to help you accurately. The control board uses relays to activate the different devices on the washer. Probably the relay for the heater is shorted or dead, or the control IC chip which activates everything per the stored program is defective.

If it's cutting off at too high a temperature it is a good possibility the probe is faulty. However if the compressor is not cutting off at all, suspect short of gas.

Hi there, do you have the schematics for the Panasonic CT-27sf37b. This TV won't power up but making a high pitch sound near the thermistor area. Thanks.

Hi Richard,

First of all thank you for contacting regarding your TV problem.

You have mentioned that you can hear a high pitch near the thermistor area and the TV won't power up. I've saw also in another link that you already replaced the thermistor but the symptoms still persist. You stated that the thermister heats up, that is normal and not an issue in this kind of symptoms. You can power up the unit even without the thermistor in the board and check if the high pitch will gone or not. But I've suspected that the symptoms will remain the same because the pitch came from the chopper transformer.

I've encountered this kind of symptoms not only on panasonic CRT TV's but almost in all brands. And the major caused of fault is the faulty electrolytic capacitor in the Voltage regulator IC. Your unit used STRF6524 (mounted on the aluminum heat sink) as voltage regulator IC and it has an electrolytic capacitor on its circuitry. I would advice you to replaced it to resolve the issue. The largest electrolytic capacitor is not the suspect here (don't replaced it).

Also check for bad solder joints around the regulator IC. Cracked, cold, dried solder can produced that kind of symptoms. It is hard to spot, you must used magnifying glass and work in the brightest area or much better to re-solder the suspected bad solder joints.

I have various of Panasonic schematic diagram but most of them is a LCD and Plasma TV. I don't have this model no. but please check the chassis no. of your unit and I will try again to find it on my supplier to give it to you for free as much as possible because I've saw it HERE but I don't think the price is reasonable.

Please let me know if you need further assistance.

Again, thank you and have a nice day!

Kind Regards,

The fresh food side is freezing. There's nothing blocking the air inlet, the condenser coils are clean and the controls are off. What else could it be? I can't find a thermostat any where. I haven't...

Hi Louisa. Welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly.
The symptom your describing is usually caused by the air damper assy. failing to close. It can however be caused by a bad thermistor. There are 4 models of this unit that end in HEB, HEQ, HES, and HEW. I am using the model number MSD2657HEB and the parts that can cause your problem are the damper (item 7) this ink:
or the thermistor (Item 18) of the above link.

It could also be caused by the control itself (Item 13) but I doubt that at this time. I seriously believe it will either be the Thermistor or the Damper.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,
