It is one of two things. Either your compressor went bad or the relay that connects to the compressor is bad. Those are the only two reason why it would not cool at all. You can try to unplug it and plug is back and and see what happens it might shock it back

Your assumption would be probable! Sounds like the cooling system is being pressurised from the engine which is normally caused by blown head gasket! Is the water mixing with the oil?

My suzuki 2005 s83 boulevard oil looks like chocolate milk.Bike has only 8000 miles.Rode and checked oil the other day was fine.I only rode 1 mile, not that hard.Checked oil today...looks bad


Sounds like water / oil emulsification. Is your bike water cooled or air cooled? If it's water cooled then you may have a gasket leak. If it's air cooled then you may not be riding the bike enough to get a good temp up inside the engine which would drive off the condensation inside the crank case / sump thereby leading to the emulsification. You say you rode an easy mile - certainly that's not enough to get the temp up enough to drive off the water. Was the bike running ok? Was it accelerating and braking ok? If so then try a cautious longer run and keep an eye on your levels. If in doubt consult a bike shop.

Duo Therm dripping water in camper when shut off. My Dometic Duo Therm Ducted AC drips quite a bit of water when shut off after running for several hours on hot humid days. The condensate lines are open....


Remove the filter at ceiling and run the AC on cool etc, and see if you can feel cool air leaking across to return air inlet where the divider between cold and return is. Check along all edges, etc for any cool air . Careful of wiring, but you should be able to get hand in there and feel especially around the edges where it should be sealed tight. Quite often a leak in that area causes cold air to enter return air and causes excessive condensation. Another thing to check is look way up inside opening for return air, with a flashlight and see if any dirt/dust on coils and fins of evaporator, and if so, needs to be cleaned off with a vacuum, and brush attachment. Let me know what you find.

ZFSB26DRESS water runs warm and freezer not staying cold.


It sounds like the condenser coils , the coils by the compressor , need cleaned badly . This (and the compressor cooling fan) , can cause the compressor to cut off on overload (due to the heat) , thereby not circulation refrigerant thru out the freezer coils .
The water line goes from inside the freezer door ( cold ) , under the refrig ( warm ) , then to the inside refrig water reservoir ( cold ) . After that , you should get cold water , until the reservoir is drained of cold water .

Cold water never quits trying to cool water. runs


Hello, this is going to be a bad thermostat. This is located behind the grill in the back. It has 2 electrical wires and a metal wire that goes to the tank, you should replace it. Hope this helps! Mike

Water trinkling sound


This is normal sound, it is just a condensation buildup inside the machine that is dripping into drip pin than drips outside.

Silent pc


Really depends on your price-range, and to what extent you are looking for "results", to simply make your PC a 'silent', a less expensive one, (ave.$80USD), should work, such as many "COOLMASTER" ones, I have one of these #201(?), and it has the 5"1/4" drivebay LCD panel, works quite well, keeps my Prescott (read "pres-HOT":) (3.0GHZ), down around 70o (versus ave. of about 120o, that ran for about $90 a year ago.

On the other hand, you could Never go wrong with a 'full-blown' "KOOLANCE" system/case. . such as "external water pump & container", although, these range in the 100'sUSD, many time $500+. .

Either way, Water Cooling, IMHO, is the best. .
Keep in mind that a lot of PC's 'noise' actually comes from the Hardrives, although, depending upon your case/setup, this may or may not bother you.

Also, a Good "Sound Dampening" case, or even just the "sound dampening "harddrive covers" work well.. try a Google search for MANY reviews, and product info; simply use;

"water cooling cpu", is a great start.

Let me know if there is anything else about these that you may be wondering, I have had mine running "practically" 95% of the time over an entire 2 years, only requiring a "refill" of coolant about* every 6 months or so. . Evaporation is slightly due to the extreme heat in the room in which my PC is located also tho.

You may also find many opinions on using TEC (Thermal Electric Cooling" devices, enabling you to actually Drop the CPU's to Sub-Zero temps.. but that is usually only preferred tby the 'extreme' Overclockers'. .at any rate.. Good Luck!
