My nice sliding gate only closes with the fob and will not open


There are several possible causes, but the first to check is the limit switches. When the gate opens, it is supposed to trip a limit switch that tells the mechanism that the gate is fully open. If the switch is not tripped, it will not respond properly to a command to close. It may think the gate is running into an obstruction and then just shuts down.

My maytag washer frequently shuts off during cycle ,but resumes after i open and close the lid


It is an indication of an unbalanced load. There is a mechanism that trips the safety switch that you trip when you open the top. by cycling the top, you reset the switch. Always include a model number and age.

Do you have a model and serial number so i can spec components and a diagram?
The reset is a GFCI electrical or a high limit temperature switch?
If its a GFCI you have a leak or a short or the pump is drawing to many amps likely due to something in the impeller or plumbing restricting flow. Potentially its a shaft seal issue.
How hot is the tub when it trips? Try running it cold and see if it trips. If it doesnt and its still cold its the pump. If its hot and you set it to cold its a stuck relay or contactor or triac and therefore tripping a high limit switch.
If this is a hot tub/spa the pressure switch may be an issue. It shuts down the heat typically and keeps the pumps running.
If a reset switch of any type is tripped to many times it will continue to trip at a lower and lower value.
Just some tips, hope they help. Get back to me with some info.

H1 error code; what does that indicate?


H1 indicates the high limit switch has been tripped. Usually, only a temperature of 114 degrees will trip it or the switch itself may be bad. Depending on your setup, if you just have a normal mechanical time clock, you should have a fireman's switch wired in that will shut the heater off 15 minutes before the pump shuts off.
This can also be caused by a bad or improperly adjusted pressure switch. This can be tricky especially if the heater is installed below the pool water level. If you know that the heater has not tried to fire when the pump is off, then I would suspect the high limit switch has failed and needs replaced.

Dryer shuts off after 10 minutes. timer has been replaced. What is the next step in troubleshooting this problem?


Check the high limit thermostat. if its damaged, it will allow the dryer to become way to hot, tripping the shut off. check the door switch as well. if its faulty, it will shut off the dryer periodically.

BRIVAS DUCTED HEATER FAN RUNS BUT NO HEAT


It sounds like a bad or tripped limit switch. The limit switch is a small disk about the size of a penny with 2 wires attached. There will be a small button between the two wires. Press firmly to reset it. Depending on your unit there could be 2 to 5 of them to reset. If they aren't tripped, then one by one, take a small jumper wire and jump them by bypassing them. You will eventually come across the "bad" one. If you can't reset it, then you will have to replace it. There is also a limit that can not be replaced that is located on the heat exchanger wall. Bypass it only temporarily to see if it is bad as well.

Arcoair central heat /air conditioning unit


The blower motor kicks on when there has been a 24 volt control failure.

This usually means that a limit switch has tripped.

Most likely that would be a high temp limit switch or a rollout switch.

First, make sure the filters are clean. and the evap coil is clean. If eaither are dirty/clogged, it will partially block airflow, causing the furnace to overheat, causing the high temp limit to trip.

A rollout switch typically trips for three reasons.
1 flame rollout into the burner compartment due to poor airflow.
2 overheating af teh metal plate the rollout is mounted to, due to dirty, old, rusted components.
3 a bad limit switch.

If your unit has an LED light, count the flashes and it will hepl popint out the problem.
(locate the wiring diagram/flash code list, and correspond the flash count, with the code.)

First, check filters.

Wells f49 fryer temperature problem


This is the cause of a faulty thermostat. You may also want to consider replacing the high limit as well if it has tripped more than a few times.
