Question about Heating & Cooling

Fan is hitting something -- can't get a it.

The air circulation fan is hitting something (maybe a foam piece). How to get at it? I do not see any screws to remove a cover (seems to be welded). Only screws I see are for the control unit.

    Thanks. Turns out my son had already removed the two screws. It is hard to slide the case off and even then I cannot get at the fan(the one on the room side, behind the cooling coils). But I think I can jam a block of wood over some plastic on the bottom of the fan chamber and this almost stops the fan hitting -- just a slight tic noise now.

There are two screws that hold the rack in that holds the fan assy. Look at the very top of the fan where it connects to the housing. Kinda hard to explain but undo two 5/16 sheet metal screws they are on the top and to the sides, then grap the whole fan and housing and pull towards you. It slides on two rails and will come completely out of the unit and might have to remove some wires to get unit completely out. So make a chart and mark each location very carefully. And don't touch the circuit board with fingers at all. It is very easy once you do it one time you won't believe how easy it comes out. Let me know how it goes ken

Outside air leaking in by driver's feet

Some cars, and maybe yours, have positive air flow built in to the heating and air conditioning system. That means as long as the engine is running, the blower fan is running at low speed to circulate air into the car. Perhaps that is what is happening in your case.
That line of which you speak probably had a rubber sealing-gasket around it at one time.
I might think something knocked the plug out.
First thing that pops into my mind is, was the car ever in an accident?
If you definitely find a hole in the floorboard or firewall, you might take something and try to plug it up yourself, like a piece of a sponge, some plastic, some putty, or something else.

When the oven has been on for a while, the computer panel heats up and turns off. I have had the oven door adjusted but still have the problem. Too much heat is escaping from the oven door. The burners...

I once had this on a kitchen aid that there was a fan inside meant to cool off the circuit board and it had died resulting in the extra heat hitting the main board. maybe check if there is a fan that circulates the air around that. As I recall it pulled air in right above the door so that it could cool the computer

Whirlpool side by side - freezer is fine. Fridge not cold

This is a common problem, and worth fixing if the frig isn't to old. The frig is making cold air just fine, which is a plus! All we need to do is get that air to circulate throughout the entire appliance.

Behind the freezer wall is a fan called an evaporator fan. This fan simply blows the air straight up the back of the freezer. From here it enters the frig at the top left and sinks to the bottom. Then it re-enters the freezer and continues its loop :D

So, either the circulation is being obstructed by something (maybe ice build up), or the fan is out.

Behind the freezer wall is the evaporator fan (that has probably stopped moving). Either ice build up (or some obstruction) has stopped it, or it has just served its time and needs to be replaced. Generally I would just replace it. You never know if it has been damaged from ice blockage or whatever the problem may be. If the motor is trying to spin and it is being held in place, bearing could be wearing out or completely gone which will just cause you more pain in the near future. So replace that puppy and you should be all set! :D good luck!

P.S. Naturally, if the fan is fine but you have something blocking the air flow, just fix the air flow problem in an apppropriate manor :)

My 2005 nissan frontier overheats while sitting still what is wrong with it?

Sounds like coolant isn't circulating. While moving engine making pump circulate coolant and fresh air hitting front of radiator. At idle or a stop, engine not making pump run as fast and there is no fresh air hiiting radiator ( especially if fan isn't working properly) Check out water pump and cooling fan.

I have a Samsung Twin cooling french door fridge with the freezer drawer at the bottom. I notice that in the vents in the back cover where the cooling fans are you can see styrofoam. I am afraid that it...

This is normal, the vents are lined with styrofoam to help minimize loss of cooling when the air is circulated from the freezer section into the fridge section.

Most of the vent and cold air channels are made entirely from styrofoam these days in most fridges.

Most packing foam is in plain sight and usually held in place with tape, so it is highly unlikely that any packing foam would be behind anything mounted permanently in a fridge.

Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

Combustion fan and circulating fan running and no heat

Check near the squirrel cage fan and see if there is a sail switch.  Sometimes these are used to confirm air movement prior to firing off the gas furnace.  It is simply a square piece of metal on a stick that attaches to a microswitch.  This switch is then depressed when the fan pushes the air (and the metal piece) allowing the burner to fire off.
Hope this helps.

Fan noise

Often blower wheels are shipped with foam or cardboard to support them. Check to be sure all packaging material was removed. If it has been then the blower wheel will need to be positioned and balanced.
