SOURCE: will not switch to cool mode. heat and fan work fine

hi,
regarding on switch mode theres a common line between heating and cooling although fan is always connect on them.,also with the thermostat,the sequence on this when you switch to cooling and your connection is on heater,the contactor will shift to compressor source,so if there is no cooling, the contactor supplying the compressor is not functioning when you switch on cool mode.try to tighten screw on compressor relay maybe only loose.on control panel,or check continuity of compressor if the compressor still good,check also the freon charge using clamp ammeter,this should be done by ac technician.have a nice day
rate me up,thank's

SOURCE: I have a Goldstar window unit 6500 BTU it has Cool, Fan, and Dry

in all honesty, it's a ridiculous gimmick. the system still runs the same as it would when you are using the A/C, however in Dry Mode there is a small heater in the unit which runs also, to prevent the system from lowering your room's air temp. a/c's always dehumidify air anyway, so basically dry mode is like running a/c and heat at the same time. $$$$$$.

SOURCE: model A6T12F2A. digital control panel is stuck on

More than likely you is gonna have to replace the control.Sometimes getting a wash rag real hot and going over the buttons will help unstick them.

SOURCE: My fan will run but the compressor will not turn

unfortunately, typically this means low freon charge. Need to have a tech charge the system.

Can hear compressor, cois get frosty but fan cuts out after five minutes. Why?


IF THE FAN IS CUTTING OUT U MAY HAVE STUCK TIMER IN THE DEFROST CYCLE MODE BUT MORE LIKELY U HAVE A POWER ISSUE, IS THIS A digital cold control thermostat? if so the control board itself may not be communicating with the thermostat, when the fan cuts out does the compressor keep running? and no clicking sounds?

Fan motor is slowing down and not keeping the desired temperature


The circuit diagram for the standard control model shows the blower has a two-speed motor, connected directly to the power line in "Cool" mode, or connected to the temperature control in "Cook" mode. When the blower slows down during cooking, switch it temporarily to "Cool" mode. If it goes to normal speed, the problem is with the mode switch contacts or the wiring terminals between the fan mode switch and the temperature control board, or the control board itself.

If the speed does not change, check the wiring terminals at the speed switch common terminal (I assume your problem occurs in both low and high speeds). If you find tarnished, loose, or burned terminals, clean, repair or replace as needed. (In extreme cases, a loose terminal will cause the wire to overheat, damaging the insulation, oxidizing the terminal and causing a high-resistance condition that will reduce the voltage available to the motor.) If the connections are all good, the motor bearings are probably getting sticky at high temperatures. Let the oven get hot enough for the blower to slow down, then shut it off and check the blower bearings while wearing oven mitts.

Westpoint microwave oven when it is switched on the power trips off


see this cause and fix it: Otherwise you must call a profesional repairman. You must act with carefully. God bless you
All microwaves have some sort of a cooling fan to help keep the magnetron and controls at a tolerable level. Most OTR models will usually use the vent motor for the cooling fan also. Countertop units have a small fan behind the control panel somewhere. Either way, if the cooling fan is not working and heat builds up, it is going to open a thermostat. On some makes, this thermostat might re-set itself as soon as the temperature cools down. Other makes, you will have to replace the thermostat or fuse.
If this is your microwave oven repair problem, you will need to check the operation of the fan. Below in the component testing chart, you will see how to test the fan. Also, if possible, make sure the fan is not obstructed somehow and not turning. Also check your fan relay at your control board for voltage, if no voltage, replace control board. This fan should come on at the same time any cooking starts.

Oven heat varies


When you say it goes up and down by itself, what is the neon doing on the front panel. Is this switching off and on in relation to the oven heating and cooling? If it is, then it could be the thermostat sensor is dirty/covered in grease etc and giving false readings and will need a carful clean. With a fan oven, the fan should keep running, it is the element that the thermostat controls. If the neon stays on but the temperature varies, it could be a fault with the wiring. Does the fan keep running?

I have an old Kenmore window unit that looks like a 72055 (control panel on top left). Although I have it set at 90 degrees and the room temperature is 75, the fan cycles on and off. How can I set it so...


most have a 'continious mode' that operates the air moving fan whenever the unit is on, or a 'cycling mode' that operates from a temp sensor usually near the input over the evaporator coil.
Look for the instruction for setting the mode you want.

I suspect the unit compressor is not starting and it just keeps retrying when the overload switch cools off from the previous attempt to start.

Fan continues running after turning off ignition


HI. This will, generally, be the result of the cooling fan switch.

The cooling fan switch on most electric fans monitors coolant temperature signals from the engine control computer. When the engine is cool, the switch opens to keep the fan from spinning. When the engine is warm, the switch closes, thus, turning the fan on for cooling.

I would advise to Inspect the cooling fans(thermal switch),wires and connections. Cooling fan switch problems are often caused by faulty wiring or loose or corroded connections rather than the failure of the switch itself. If the wires or connections are bad, replace them. If you think the switch is defective, it should be tested.

The electric fan cooling switch, or thermal switch, can be tested by placing the element in a bucket of water. Heat the water to approximately 207°-216°F (97°-102°C) and connect the switch leads to an ohmmeter(make sure to keep the switch leads out of the water). The switch should have no continuity until the temperature reaches this level. Let the water cool off below 207°F (97°C) and the switch should lose continuity. If the switch has no continuity at any temperature, replace it.

NOTE_The thermal switch is located on the top of the radiator, usually on the passenger side.

Ge oven turns off by itself, and sometimes gives


F2 Oven temp exceeds 590 w/ unlocked door High resistance or interference in oven temperature sensor. Replace oven temperature sensor F2
Note: Also see fan thermal switches Indicates that oven is over temperature in one of the following modes within either a cooking or clean mode of operation.
· Control senses oven temperature above 650 degrees F with the door circuit in the unlock mode.
· Control senses oven temperature above 935 degrees F with the door in the locked mode.
· Stalled cooling fan or airflow problem. · Look for welded relay contacts. (Heating elements on in off mode).
· Look for open thermal switch in lock motor circuit. Switch is normally closed and will open if area overheats due to fan not operating. Look for cause - fan thermal switch not closing, fan stalled, etc.
· Look for high resistance in the oven temperature sensor circuit due to high contact resistance (poor terminal crimp, deformed terminals, loose connection) or intermittent solder joint on control or intermittent oven temperature sensor.
· Look for electrical noise interference in the oven temperature sensor circuit (Ham radio, cordless phone, etc.).
