Ice machine harvest two times and shut off

These unit time freeze time and harvest times and keeps track of them. If your freeze time exceeds 35 minutes or harvest time exceeds 3 minutes, it will place unit in lockout. The biggest cause for excessive time to harvest is the harvest valve not functioning properly, and undercharged unit or a dirty condenser. The most probable cause is a dirty condenser. Under charged units can be determined by checking compressor outlet temperature while running, it should be 150 to 190 degrees depending on atmospheric conditions present. If it is harvest valve, the downstream temperature will stay at or near compressor discharge temperature. It should cool down to ambient temperature in a few minutes after freeze cycle begins.

Look for any jammed buttons on the remote. Try changing the input device to something you are sure, works such as a DVD player. Switch off TV manually, switch off power, remove plug and retry after 48 hours.

If problem persists, please refer it to a qualified service technician.

I have had my sumvision dvd player now for a few months and it keeps freezing periodically when watching a movie, sometimes its starts and then freezes, this is happening always now, even though I have...

The problem is the laser pickup assembly in the dvd, If it freezes the stepper motor which drives the worm gear along with the laser carriage is the problem, the precision in tracking is critical and any interference causes the picture to freeze. If you have any warranty on the unit I would encourage you to take it back for possible exchange, because it will get worse and finally become unusable.

Own 2005 27.5' Wildwood Trailer with a Dometic a/c ducted unit. Last few times out it freezes up initially first few times (pocked circuit breaker once then I turned it off after few minutes second time)....

Don't block off any ceiling ducts and see what happens. If you've closed off any forced air ducts, the unit will freeze up, if too many are closed off. Also, if you shut unit off (compressor) give it 5 or 10 minutes before you turn it back on.

Picture will freeze.

Either the disc is scrathed or you have to remove the cover and take a q-tip with rubbing alcohol and clean the lens.

This is very common in Samsung DLPs. The DMD board is going bad. You will need to replace it.
