If mechanical, - bad thermostat. If solid state/digital (with a circuit board) - bad temperature sensor.

Number of 175ml bottles needed to fill 5.30 glasses for 100 persons

Interesting conundrum, since we have to guess what 5.3 means.

If it is an ounce: 1 oz = 29.5735296 m (lets round up to 29.6)
(29.6 * 5.3 * 100) / 175 = 89.64571428571429 (lets round up to 90).

It it stays in milliliters: (5.3 ml * 100) / 175 = 3.028571428571429 (lets just round to 3).

Hope this answers your question.

Stays in defrost to long

There is a defrost termination thermostat located somewhere near the defrost heater, probably on one end and a bit above the heater. These are located in the lower part of the evaporator coil (the cold coil in the freezer) so you will have to disassemble the freezer to access this. This usually involved removing a cover, but may be more involved depending on your brand and model. Follow the heater wires and one of them should connect to this stat. Stat cut-out temp settings vary, but should be between 40 and 90 degrees - it should be marked on the side of the stat, depending on the location and type of defrost system. If this thermostat is stuck in the closed (on) condition it would account for this sort of failure. Some newer refrigerators use solid state controls with different control systems for defrost so you would have to determine which type you have, but the mechanical thermostat is most typical. It is approximately the size of a quarter, perhaps 1/2 inch thick and typically has a brown and orange wire. Also, look for shorted/burnt wiring since a shorted wire could touch the case and bypass the controls, accounting for this failure mode.

My minimax nt only heats till 90 degrees. I set it up to 104 which is the highest and it only stays at 90 degrees. Everythig seems to be working well, no errors either. Please advice.

Either the thermostat board is defective, the temperature sensor is defective or not enough heat is being produced by the heater. . I recommend you call the Pentair technicalsupport at 800-693-0971 and they should be able to help you figure this issueout. I hope this helps.

Please vote on this answer. Thank you.

It might be the reason why the check engine light come on.

Hello, the first thing is check the igniter for any crack or white spots on it, also, if you have a multimeter check the resistance of the igniter, should be between 40-90 ohms. You can purchase a igniter at any Heating and Cooling supply store.

Sta-rite pool heater SR333LP

This heater has a thermal regulator and a high limit that could be the problems. If it were a high limit that was bad, the display would show the error when the heater goes off. In the absence of an error, one would look to the regulator. A bad regulator would cause the water flow to bypass the exchanger and cause a slow heat. The part is easily replaced and runs about $90. It sort of looks like a car thermostat and also has a spring. It is accessed by removing the large black plug near the plumbing inlet/outlet.
