Middle bar hot


this is generally an indicator that either the door was left open too long, dirty condensor coils and/or you have a issue with the condenser fan mtr not running or blade is jammed. pull the unit out and see if the fan in the back is running if not or if it is running slowly then it needs to be replaced ASAP!!!! This fan is design for two purposes to cool the compressor from over heating and to draft cooler air across the condensor coils and displace heat outside unit

Dishwasher not drying dished with any heat source. Dishes washed in cold water.


Most dishwashers are plumbed to the hot side of the hot water side of the faucet. This should provide hot water for washing the dishes. Perhaps this dishwasher was plumbed to the cold water side by mistake.

Most dishwashers have a heating coil most of the way around under the bottom sliding/rolling dish rack. The heating coil may not be working, which would be consistent with the dishes not drying at the end of the cycle. Possible causes include incorrect setting selected on control console (push buttons) or timer, heating coil disconnected from electrical source at one end or both ends, faulty control circuit inside the timer, faulty wiring between the timer/control circuit and the heating coil, burned or pitted contacts in the control circuit.

I have a danby 8000 btu air condition. Model number DAC8008EE and its isnt cooling enough and gets hot. Can it go in a sleeve vent in my apartment? and why isn't it cold enough?


For some reason it is over heating. If the rear fan cannot vent the hot air out of the back of the unit properly, it will over heat. Make sure the rear coil is not stopped up with dirt on the inside of the coil. You will have to take the cover off or take a flash light and look thru the side vent thru the back fan blade at the inside of the coil. If it is stopped up with dirt, etc. You can wash this out with a water hose and sprayer, but make sure you don't get the motor and other electrical components wet. Best way is to take it out of the window, set it outside, and give it a good wash job. Let it dry out for a couple of hours before re-installing.
As for a sleeve, you HAVE to make sure the unit can vent out the back properly. If it can't it WILL overheat.

I have a Goodman a/c, furnace outdoor combo unit the the fan won't come on for the furnace. When I set the thermostat to heat, I can see the two heating coils come on, then glow bright orange for about 20...


To me it sounds like you need a fan limit switch to sense temperature increase and turn your fan on. At least you know that everything else is working. With out a schematic I can not tell you what type of limit this would be but I would look for a sensor either mounted right above the coils or beside them.
Have you looked on the inside of cover plate for heating and blower compartments.Often times they will put a wiring diagram there. Wished I could be of more help. Thank you

The ptac unit is not heating or cooling the aux heat works the line out of the compressor gets hot but the line going to the coils up front does not get real hot just warm and does the same thing on the...


Verify all your components are operating - Compressor? Condenser fan motor? Blower fan motor?
If not check voltage to any that are not operating.
If all components are operating and the coils are clean - the refrigerant level is most likely low.

My samsung rs2630sh is very very hot to the touch


The fan you should replace is called the condenser fan. It's the one that blows air across the outside coils. When it fails, you'll usually notice abnormal heating of the front of the divider between freezer and fridge.

MY FREEZE DOES NOT FREEZ BUT IS COOLD DOES IT NEEDS GAS


When the compressor is running, two fans should be running. One inside the freezer compartment that moves air over the evaporator coils. The other is under/behind the fridge that cools the condenser coils.

If the fan on the condenser coil (the one under/behind the fridge) stops working, the system cannot dissipate the heat from those coils, and thus cannot sufficiently cool the inside of either the freezer nor fresh food compartment.

On mine, when the condenser fan failed, I noticed right away. The front face of the wall separating the compartments became very hot. Extremely hot.

Apparently the refrigeration system is designed so that waste heat keeps condensation from forming where the magnetic gaskets on the door need to seal. When the condenser fan failed, there was too much waste heat (because no heat was being dissipated from the condenser coils by the fan), thus making that gasket-sealing area very hot.

If it is your condenser coil fan, you can relieve the problem temporarily by removing the bottom back panel from the fridge and aiming a box fan (a regular room or window fan) at the condenser coils. This will circulate air over the coils, thus removing heat from the coils.

Refridgerator heating up on outside


There are 2 or 3 things that would cause this. first make sure the condenser coils are not plugged with dust (vacumn or blow them out) next check to make sure the fan that cools these coils is running, (this is the most likely problem). if both of these check out ok then you would need to check to make sure your interior lights ar going off when the doors are closed as these will add extra heat and cause the center rails to run hot. last and most uncommon would be a freon system problem. 
To clean the coils pull the refrig from the wall, remove compartment cover, and then you will see a round spiral shaped coil. the fan is located on the left end of this coil.

fyi there is a hot gas freon line that runs in between the doors to prevent exterior sweating. when poor or no air flow problems for the condenser coil exist it causes this area to become hotter. 
One more thing. if you do determine that the condenser fan motor is bad you can put a normal house fan blowing on to the coil to help cool this area down until you can get the unit repaired. 
If you need any further assistance leave me a comment here and I'll gladly get back to you. Thanks Peyton

Kenmore side by side compressor keeps getting hot


Your fan is stalling which in turn is over heating the compressor causing it to shut itself down. Replace the fan and make sure the coils under the fridge are clean. That should take care of the problem. Good luck

Hotpoint Aquarius Condensor Dryer not getting Hot


I don't know Hotpoint models but I do know Malber models very well which also have a condensing dryer. The dryer has a fan and a heating coil or heating element, similar to a hair dryer. If you are getting no air flow, then it could be the fan. If you are getting air flow but it is not hot, then it is probably the heating element which burnt out. In the Malber machine, the top cover comes off and you can see an aluminum duct on top with two terminals sticking out the side. These two terminals go to the heating element inside the duct, and the heater element is like the heating element in an oven. You have to remove the duct and then it splits into a top and bottom half, and then you can remove the heating element to replace it. The way to tell if it is bad is to run the machine in a dry cycle and see if there is 110 volts across the heating element terminals. If there is power, but no heat, then the heating element is bad. That element is usually the first thing to fail.
