Question about Heating & Cooling

Electric cord becomes extreamly hot when using a very short time.

Electric cord becomes extreamely hot . We have not used this heater very much. Only in our Motor Home when traveling in cold weather in overnight camping. We have an older one that works just fine. You rebuilt it also, but this one seems to get too hot ( cord). And the wife won't let me use it for fear of fire.

I have a century wirefeed 225 amp welder that goes into a high current state if I shut the machine off for 10 minutes then it will work fine for a couple of welds. I did change the circuit board already.

sounds like a component is over-heating, this would possibley be located on a power resistor attached to a large heat sink, try the set again, when it goes into high speed, detach the plug from the wall socket, taking extream care, gently touch the power resistors for high temperators, these normally run hot so the faulty one will be abnormally hot, be extreamly aware of the large capacitors, they will be fully charged and will give you an awfull belt.

Engine knocks cold ok hot

if its at the top end its pistion slap
if its at the bottem end(of your engine) its a crank shaft bearing.

with out going into extream detail,

a ting sound at the top is a pistion slap.... replace all your pistions posibly over hual the engine.

a dubble knock that gose with rpm but sounds 2 knocks very every fireing of the pistion is a crank bearing..... replace your crank shaft bearings.... all of them b/c metal gose threw an engine extreamly fast and will destroy other beraings. this knock on start up will turn into a knock all the time, then a very louad knock that will end your engines life.

unfortunetly the answer is engine rebuild and fast.

Washer runs an extreamly long time. I do use HE wash liquid. I put it on 25 min quich wash and check on it 30-40 min later and it has 125 min to go??????????

Does your washing machine go to rinse or spin? If it does not there is a problem with the in bulit in heater. Please check underneath. It is possilble that the heater is faulty or a wire has come lose.
