Cooling sytem,the carOpel Corsa Utility is blowing hot air in even when the air-con if off and the selector knob is on the blue side.

Answer for question 3: No sensor tells the water pump to pump, the water pump is running as long as the motor is running. The serpentine belt turns the water pump and the crankshaft pulley powers this belt.
The thermostat is a variable valve that controls the flow of the water to a set temperature. The temperature switch is a sensor that will switch the fan/fans on if the temperature rises above a set temperature.
Answer for question 2: The bubbles that you see coming from the radiator could be cavitation bubbles. A more worrying aspect is that they could also be a sign of a bad head gasket.
Answer to question 1: It is possible that the water could not circulate if the water pump failed. It could also be very restricted if the thermostat failed open but there are bypasses that still allow some flow.

Tigershark comes out of the water too far

You need to reduce the flow through the impeller - there should be a baffle (something in plastic, round, that will be installed at the top of the shark) in the box that it came in.

Hi...have a ge micro jvm1190sy 011 i melted marshmellow in bubbled over and is now stuck in the ceiling of the micro on top of the whole metal sheet i can not clean it so there is layer...

How about boiling a small container of water and once it starts boiling. Just shut the unit off and let it sit and let the steam do the work for you. Might soften it enough to scrape it off.

I have a 2008 F-250 when the heater is on and the truck is stopped or driving under 15 MPH the heater blows cold air, if you speed up it starts blowing hot again. What could this be?

Could be low coolant, could be a bad head gasket or other point where combustion gasses are entering coolant.

The heater core fills with bubbles, it's commonly the highest point in the cooling system. When the motor is turning slow the water pump isn't moving enough water to force the bubbles to go on through the heater core but when you speed the motor up the pump is able to force the bubbles down to the motor. They'll go to the top radiator tank and then out the pressure cap to the recovery tank. Look for bubbling in the coolant recovery tank.

2007 Chevy Tahoe will not blow hot air unless I'm driving. Heat works fine until I come to a stoplight, then it starts blowing cool air after sitting there for a minute or so. Any suggestions

This is pretty common with a leaking head gasket. The heater core collects the bubbles as the coolant passes through it until finally it's full. When you take off the motor turns faster and the water pump makes enough pressure to flush the bubbles on through the heater core to the radiator tank where they end up going into the coolant recovery tank. Watch the coolant tank as you pull the throttle open sharply, see if you see bubbles in it.

Blowing cold air but making a bubbling sound

If there is water in your laptop then most likely it is dead.

Have power to the floating cord but tigershark will not run.

My tigershark would start working then stop 20 seconds to 20 minutes later. I found that the power switch was loosing good connection after self check cycle, I turned it on and off rapidly to hopefully clean the contact! I now disconnect and restart by pulling the power cord. I have run two cycles with no problem> I will replace the switch when I get a chance.

Good Luck
