SOURCE: my fridge stops running after several hours. What

NOTE: This
is a multi-solution answer since I don't have all the tech from your question to pinpoint your problem
But the solution is in here generically, if you read and study the solutions very,very carefully.

Sounds like the cold control has stuck . Unplug the two wires from the cold control and plug them together. Turn one wire over and plug it into the other. away from the cold control.
The cold control is the knob in the ref that turns it on and off and has numbers on it. (Thermostat)
If it runs then that cold control (Thernostat) is the problem.
If that doesn't work DO THIS:
The relay on the compressor may need replaced
A relay starts the compressor with a higher voltage and then quickly kicks out
Thats what is happening with yours
Its best for a tech to replace The relay but you can do it
Take your model number to your Local Appliance parts store they will have a diagram
showing you how to install the relay. Its called a hard start relay
also try hooking the two wires together on the cold control to route around the cold control.
Be sure the BACK COVER is in place and hasnt been accidently removed.

U line ice maker is overflowing water

This is usually caused by a bad water inlet valve. This part is usually found behind the fridge at the bottom behind a panel on the fridge itself. It has 1-2 water lines running into it and 1-2 wire harnesses connected. You need to turn off the water going into the fridge and cut the power to the fridge to access this part. You can buy a new one at a local appliance parts store or online.

We are going to lose power at 12 am tonight and my husband has sizures and we need generator so we bought one but cannot find manual how long will it run? we bought at menards

I really depends on the size of the generator. 1 gallon of gas should last close to an hour, the tank should hold about 3-4 gallons so I would say atleast 3-4 hours but keep a check on the level as you never know when leaks occur, or how much gas it sucks up. Good Luck

check engine coolant temp sensor, its detect engine overheats that command the computer to engine shutdown for protection, try to replace a good one

Fridge won't restart after power outage.

If your power came back on within an hour of going off it is more than likely that the fridge will simply have tobe unplugged and left for 2-3 hours to let the gas de-pressurize inside the compressor. However if after you try this, and the compressor still isnt running then it will most likely be cause by a faulty relay & overload on the compressor. This is a saftey device so the compressor isn't overloaded during an electrical surge. The original part is sometimes expensive to replace, however a 3 in 1 hard start can be purchased to generically replace the original part.Hope this helps

Unfortunately, there is no way of saving your DVR, i would ask Dish for an upgrade to a Vip series rec, for example a 622 or 722 which can allow the use of an external hard drive. it also sounds like your root problem is with the voltage in the outet your dvr in connected to, try to plug directly into wall, if it is already, have an electrician check your voltage to prevent future issues.
