Question about Dryers

1 Answer

How do I know if my fan is running too hot. The fan I use through out the night is hot enough to hurt your fingers after touching about 3 of 4 seconds. Not the housung, but the wafered metal peice in between where the magneto (?) spins. Thanks!

This sounds normal. The fan's circuitry will take care of overheating -- it has a thermal fuse -- if it gets too hot, it'll shut down until the fuse is replaced.

Okay i have a '89 ford f150 4x4 standard single cab short wheel base with a 302 & i just replaced the thermostat 180 degrees & replaced the fan clutch because thermostat stuck & fan clutch was bad & it ran...


Its possible that you got a faulty thermostat that is actually sticking open and not allowing the water to actually heat up to temperature. Try checking the heater and see if you actually have heat. If not, I would start there and purchase another thermostat. It's the cheapest route and I have purchased bad ones myself.

Jenn-Air JCD2389GES problems


The condensor fan cools the condensor coils. If it is running this will cause a no cool situation. Also, if the condensor coils are plugged with dirt that insulates the coils and causes a no cool situation. These things will make it so the freezer isn't cold enough to freeze water so the icemaker will not produce ice. As far as the door edges getting hot. A condensor line runs thru the cabinet between the doors and this is called the mullion. If it is too hot this is a good indication of a bad condensor motor or dirty coils. Clean the coils and check the status of the fan motor and let me know what you find and we will see if we need to go further.

Hi, how can I know that my computer processer is affected?


If any doubt about the fans in your computer (CPU, GPU, case...), you must monitor the TEMPERATURES, with a software, and with your fingers by gently touching surfaces : if it hurts (really HOT), stop the computer and fix the fan...
But your pbremains unclear : please add details !

Car running hot when idle


The most common reason for running hot at idle is the radiator fan is not running or pulling enough air thru the radiator. If you have a fan for the engine and one for the ac, the engine fan may not be working.
The radiator fan should come on when the coolant reaches 220 degrees. The computer sends a signal to the fan relay.

Motor seems to be running, but nothing gets cooled


Hi there

You think the motor is running this can often only be the fan inside, the only way to check if the compressor is running is to pull the unit out listen carefully. You can feel the compressor to see if it is running but BE CAREFUL, if the compressor has a problem it can get to around 180 deg f (80 deg C) you may have to use a glove, or with the unit switched off and unplugged wet your finger then touch the compressor, any moisture will evaporate very quickly if it is hot. There may also be a fan on the condenser, check if this is running.

1. If the compressor is cold it is likely that there is no power going to it from the thermostat this is a very common failure and fairly easy to do if you feel competent.
2. If the compressor feels hot and there is a fan next to it which does not run then it is likely to be the fan.
3. If the compressor is hot and the fan is running try cleaning the condenser grille gently with a soft brush and vacuum cleaner.
4. If 3 above is OK and still nothing then either there is a problem with the gas charge or there is a problem with the compressor, either of these will need your local reputable service guy.

Let me know if I can help further

"RUUD Achiever 90 Plus" Propane


Hello bikejocky,

MOST LIKELY you have a "hot surface" element
with a tiny crack in it...
About 25 years ago... I put one of my poor abused
fingers on the element to see if it was at all warm...
In so doing I touched the spot where the crack was...
and it did INDEED have a full 120 volt, 60 cycle AC
current waiting for my FINGER to complete the
circuit... (not a recommended procedure)

My 25 year old RHEEM... finally kicked it.
I keep spares... and bought 2 more when I used
the last

Since these parts are pretty cheap... I get spares
62 22868 93 Rheem 62 22868 93 Hot Surface Ignitor

Take a look... There are two basic configurations

The WISEST APPROACH is to use a "meter"
to verify the "line current" is present (not finger)
and check the "SURFACE" for continuity.

Once you copy the number DIRECTLY from
YOUR OWN part... look it up... internet... eBay
and AMAZON (like Robert Shaw #41-408).
http://www.ebay.com/itm/ROBERTSHAW-41-408-Hot-surface-ignitor-NORTON-271N-/121727955205?hash=item1c578d3105:m:mJR3I8e9mTI60A-dtmvdVrw

>> It is the plug & mount that is important...!!

(consider that spare you always wanted
(If you get it... you will probably never need it)).

~~

The cycling limit & fan
(never touched a RUUD... (so... I presume)) is to clear accumulated GAS FUMES to avoid any explosive
situations.

I do know RHEEM... (ERGO... I have every confidence)
((RHEEM & RUUD, in my opinion, are design twins)).

The unit will not cool below 78 degrees. How do I check the freon level?


Without refrigeration gauges, you can't check your freon level. You have to check the pressure of the freon, not the level. If you are careful and have a basic knowledge of electricity and moving parts, you can get an idea if you are out of freon. If you remove the lower slotted cover from the refrigerator you will see the condensor coils. This is a radiator that has aluminum fins on the front and will have a fan running behind it. If the compressor is running this condenser coil should be hot to the touch at the top part of the aluminum fins. If the fins are covered with dust and dirt it can cause your cooler to malfunction. Also if the fan is not running the compressor will overheat and quit. If you pull the cooler away from the wall, you can see the compressor in the bottom of the cooler. There are two copper lines leading to the compressor. The small line goes to the condensor coils (the radiator) and should be hot enough to burn your finger if you have enough freon. Also the larger of the two copper lines brings the freon back to the compressor from inside the cooler. It should be cold to the touch if you have proper freon pressure. If both of those two lines feel about the same temperature, either the compressor is not running or you have no freon. BE CAREFUL! There are electrical lines and moving fan blades near the compressor, and some of the tubing gets really hot.
