My whirlpool side by side fridge freezer power cut alarm will not stop going off temp display is reading -7 degrees Celsius in freezer but I put therometer in it and that is saying -17 degrees Celsius...


Are you sure it's not a temperature alarm rather than power? Check the thermistor isn't in a block of ice, give the freezer a good defrost, and check the condenser is nice and clean.

Electrolux ewx14440w washer dryer will not heat water


Hello - Hot water is most often 10 degrees colder when it arrives at your machine from when it leaves your hot water heater. In general hot water is 130 degrees Fahrenheit (54.4 Celsius) or above. Warm water is between 110 and 90 degrees Fahrenheit ( 43.3-32.2 Celsius). Cold water is generally between 80 and 60 degrees Fahrenheit (26.7-15 Celsius). If cold water is below 60 degrees Fahrenheit (15 Celsius), clothes are unlikely to be cleaned very well. After confirming information and it proves to be ineffective contact a professional to move forward accurately. Unit could possibly be experiencing a defective timer, temperature sensor, or water valve.

Subzero 850 freezer temp reads minus 20 degrees


Hi,
Is it possible your unit is set to celsius rather than fahrenheit? I ran the -20c though a converter and is this is true your unit is running at -4 degrees fahrenheit and this would be a little cold but ok at this temperature. I would personally check settings before going further in to any repair. I was reaching the model you gave me and found the number you gave was incorrect. But try this; turn the whole unit off for a couple of minutes. Turn it back on, then push and hold the alarm and unit power button for 5 sec. this can only be done within the first 5 minutes of power up. This should confirm your display setting is correct, I am assuming you want fahrenheit rather then celsius. If this doesn't work for you, I will need to confirm model number so I can send you a digital version of the service manual if you need it.
Good Luck

Hi my name is veronica my problem of my kenmore elite refrigertor is not cold enought...i want to know what is the tempertaure that need to be on


Problems with Temperature
If the refrigerator or freezer is not cooling properly, check temperature settings and air vents and ensure there is adequate room for proper airflow. Factory-recommended temperature settings are 0 degrees Fahrenheit (-18 degrees Celsius) for the refrigerator; and 37 degrees Fahrenheit (3 degrees Celsius) for the freezer.
If you need to adjust the temperature, do it one degree at a time and wait 24 hours before making additional adjustments. Check the air vents and make sure nothing is blocking them. Finally, if your refrigerator or freezer is too full, there will not be adequate room for air to circulate and cool properly. If these all check out, the problem could be with one or more compressor components and will require professional repair.

Have a nice day : )

How to set up the temp. please


Hello,

Purchase an appliance thermometer that is specifically made for refrigerators and freezers. These special thermometers were made to withstand cold temperatures and provide an accurate reading when exposed to such temperatures.

2Place the appliance thermometer in a glass of water.

3Set the glass of water with the thermometer in the refrigerator on the middle shelf.

4Check the temperature on the appliance thermometer after 24 hours.
The temperature should register between 37 and 40 degrees Fahrenheit (2 and 4 degrees Celsius) in order to store food safely.
Only barely above freezing -- say 34 degrees Fahrenheit (1 degree Celsius) is even better for food storage at the cost of slightly higher electricity consumption. But check that food is not slowly freezing in any part of the refrigerator, which could make it less palatable.

5Look for the temperature control dial inside the refrigerator if you have to adjust the temperature, and make it warmer or cooler.
If you can't easily see the control dial, check the owner's manual for a diagram that shows the location.
When looking at the refrigerator temperature dial, you may see numbers rather than degrees. The majority of refrigerators use a set of numbers, with the lower numbers representing cooler temperatures and the higher numbers representing warmer temperatures.

6Move the temperature dial in the necessary direction to adjust the temperature up or down. Be sure to move the dial only one number in either direction because it probably will not take much to change the temperature in the refrigerator.

7Adjust the temperature balance control if your refrigerator has such a dial or sliding switch. This allows you to direct more or less cold air to the refrigerator section from the freezer section.

8Wait at least 24 hours, and then check the refrigerator temperature again.


9Observe the amount of frost in the freezer section of the refrigerator if you are unable to properly set the temperature.

10Defrost the freezer if the amount of frost is more than .25 inches (.64 cm) thick.

11Repeat the steps as necessary until the temperature is within the safe range.

12Use a permanent marker to draw a line on the dial after you locate the best setting on the refrigerator temperature dial. This will give you a reference point in case your dial moves and needs to be adjusted in the future.

Hope this will help out...

Hi, I have a high temperature problem. Its about 72 degrees (celsius) in idle and eg durring gameplay it jumps right to about 90 degrees and i get a high temperature warning when it hits about a 100 or...


If you are not overclocking it then it could well be a faulty temp sensor. As that is at processor level you won't be able to fix it. It also depends on what prog you are using to detect the temp.

You would be able to feel it if it were at 100deg c. That's boiling point!

I know the minimum operating temp for many refrigerators is around 33 F (about a degree above freezing or so). This is due to the refrigerant gas within the compressor and the fact that it is not stable at low temps. Typically, a refrigerator's minimum ambient temp should be 50 degrees F (10 degrees C).

I don't know if there is a whole lot you can do. The refrigerator really wasn't built to work in such cold weather. You may either have to relocate it, put a heat source near it or look into a special freezer that is *supposedly* able to operate in much colder ambient temps.

The temp for the fridge is about right and -18 for the freezer is ok so check to see if the water filter is plugged, at 8 degrees Celsius is about 18 degrees fht. Which is freezing so the numbers don't add up. 26 degrees below zero on the freezer side is what you want if it that cold it could have frozen the water line.
