Refrigerator model bx21vl does not cool. I can hear the compressor kick in but it kicks out in 5-10 seconds. Then after about 102 to one minute it kicks in and out again,


Compressor is tripping on overload. You may just need the overload and relay replaced due to a bad compressor relay. The relay is what switches the compressor from it's start winding to it's run winding. If you pull the relay off, shake it to see if you hear lots of rattling inside, that's a sure sign of a bad relay. I would replace both of them.
Here is the overload relay to order.
Here is the start relay to order.

Coils get hot


Hi, as soon as you turn your dryer on, power is sent to these heat strips and they will glow red hot. This is normal. They will kick on and off through the drying cycle by several thermostats in the unit so it will not over heat. Nothing to worry about as you have 240 volts going to them.

I have a Fisher & Paykel DG08 gas dryer that will get hot and shut down after 5 minutes. It will not start if you try hitting the start button right away, but will if you wait a few minutes. It did...


The thermal overload is bad and will need to be replaced,This is there to prvent overheating and when it fails and overheating happens,a secondary overload kicks in to prevent a fire.

Dryer not always heating


Hello cab-0131,

Welcome to fixya.com
Huuum at your service!

It could be a relay!Or thermostat!
But first try this to reset the system!

As with an error code.
This can reset the system.
First unplug the washer and wait a 5 minutes then restart it.If you can't reach the plug, use the breakerto cut the power for 5 minutes
It's like rebooting your computer when its acting strange!
Usually it corrects some error problems if they are not serious.
Or they are sometimes just a glitch.
Let me know???
How old is the appliance?

Bless You
PLEASE GIVE ME A GOOD RATING HERE AT FIXYA.COM BEFORE YOU SIGN OFF.

Thank You

Sears Kenmore 80 Series Electric Dryer - starts, kicks off in 5 min


sound like a motor problem it does not have a resetable limit if it was over heating then it would blow the limit and it would not heat, or the blower limit if it sences overheating would not allow the machine to run at all
get ready for a new motor, or a new dryer
200 plus to replace the motor
