SOURCE: kenmore side by side refrigerator model 106.56532400

Hi,
Thanks for taking this question.
Kenmore 22 cft side by side does not have air circulation. Freezer is cold at the bottom (ranges 5-45 deg from bottom to top). Refrigerator section is 30- 60 deg from bottom to top. Thermostat is good; compressor is working; no ice deposit on the evaporator coils; condenser coils have been cleaned; defrost heater is working. I do not feel the air draft I used to notice whenever opened refrigerator door. Is it possible that the air recirculation fan not operating. Location of this fan in the refrigerator? Regards, Prem

SOURCE: fan runs freezer and fridge don't cool

Please check the model number again, I can't locate that number. The number should be like for example 194.258978 Look at following areas for the model number

  • Beneath Or Inside Food Compartment On Cabinet Frame
  • On Plate Lower Front Or Rear Of Cabinet
  • Beside Compressor Door On Right End
  • Near Rear Of Cabinet
  • Inside Liner At Top
  • I think your refrigerator has a defrost timer and this may be the problem, Let me know what you find, Thanks, Sea Breeze

From the list that I have, I would say no. But please take a look at the following to reassure yourself:


POTENTIAL BEKO REFRIGERATOR FIRE RISK AND RECALL NOTICE

I would normally give a pointer to articles I have already posted this response on, but as this is such a potentially serious matter, I have posted my entire response here for you.



According to several sources I have checked, including the London METRO magazine ( http://www.metro.co.uk/news/868330-beko-fridge-freezers-fire-risk-warning-issued-to-homeowners-amid-recall ) The MODEL numbers (not serial numbers) affected by the recall are as follows:

CDA543FX
CA5411FFS
CDA752FS
CDA645FW
CA5411FFW
CDA752FW
CDA647FS

CDA751FS
CDA543FS
CSB4606FFSD
CDA751FX
CDA543FW
CSB4606FFW




From what I can ascertain, the fridges affected were manufactured between January 2000 and October 2006 (So, after shipping and sitting around in shops, you can probably extend that margin to machines SOLD between 2000 and 2008)



If you go to the BEKO website, there is a link to check your serial number:



https://refsafety.beko.co.uk/



I have to say. Regardless of dates and matching serial numbers, if I had an affected model, I would be checking with BEKO anyway!!

Capabilities of the Robin 2400is generator


no
ac units are 2000 watts minimum, washing machines are 1500 watts minimum, microwave is what is on the plate and start at 650 watts but most are 2000 watts
the 2400 is the peak out put for start up of fridge , washer etc and the running wattage will be 2000 watts or less ( duty cycle )
to run more than one of the nominated items at once you will be needing a 5500 to-6500 watts unit
they handle a start up surge of 6500 watts ( larger one) and will comfortably handle 5500 watts run full load
it works like this , the plate on the gen set is the surge short time load capacity of the genset and not the duty load which is 500 to 750 watts less than that plate wattage
for example your 2400 is is surge rated at 2400 watts but duty load is less than the 2000 watts
many people make the mistake of buying a gen set that looks big enough but do not calculate the maximum load capable on being put on the gen set
fully loaded uses more fuel /hr
wears out faster
has power surges as the extra load cuts in and the motor struggles to get back to required rpms for voltage and cycles
will not cover extras like lights ,
a much large gen set will take it all in it's stride , no power surges, better economy, less stress
talk with an electrician , do your maths on everything you wish to run and that which you forgot about then add 1000 watts to the duty cycle and that will be close to the gen set you require

Want to start fridge with generater what wattage do I need to start


find the decal on the fridge( side , back inside ) that has the specifications on it
it will show wattage usage for the motor , volts required and phase/cycle requirement
now for example --if the wattage is 750 watts , then the start up wattage will be almost double for a few seconds until the motor builds up speed
so the generator size will be 2000watts continuous
that is an example
however understand this , if you get a genset that just covers the watts required , it will use a lot more fuel under full load than a gen set that has a capacity of say 4 times the requirement
next point-- gensets that just do the job will struggle on compressor start up and that can cause problems on modern fridges power boards where as a larger genset will hardly notice the load of a starting compressor
Lastly always use a surge protection board before the fridge lead as gen sets can "hunt " and produce power surges which can damage a board of the fridge
In reality if you have an outage,-- mostly at night,-- I would consider a gen set of 6500 watts capacity as that will handle fridge , freezer and house lights
I run a scorpion 6.5 kw get set connected to the house by a three way switch and a caravan plug in the meter board and that runs 2 fridges , freezer , lights and one small plate on the electric stove and 20 liter fuel tank lasts up to 6 hours running
and no it is not an inverter type so the cost of the unit is around $1200.00 aud compared to an inverter type which is more than double that price
plenty of food for thought so that you make an informed decision

Need to know if I can run my fridge on small generator if there is power outage. Generator is 1600/1650 Watts; Amana fridge model TC18HG nameplate says 6.5 Amps. But I'm unsure about the starting...


Hello Bob,
There should be absoluty no problem on that 1600 watt generator..at max when compressor just starts its drawing about 750 watts, that is the max usage when running its about 500 and on defrost its like 850 ..so on 1600 watt generator no problem

Just paid over 1,500 last year an has not rungood since. starts up real good, but once aair is turned on it stops running, or it might run one air at times. on my way back to michigan an not a happy...


This generator is a 5KW model. This means it can supply up to 5000 watts of power, total. Not all devices list the watts they need to be provided - instead these devices list the power they need as volts and amps. This can make it hard to determine what the actual watt requirements are for the device.

Overly simplified, watts is equal volts times amps (watts = volts x amps). A single 120 volt light bulb that uses .833 amps consumes 100 watts. If you checked a regular 100 watt light bulb with an ammeter, you'd find it does indeed draw .833 amps.

Working the formula a different way, we can learn how many amps this 5000 watt generator can supply at 120 volts, too. If all the loads you need to connect to this generator are 120 volt types, that means the total amount of amps the generator can supply is 5000 watts / 120 volts = 41 amps purely resistive loads (like a toaster or light bulb) maximum under ideal conditions. There is never a time when ideal actually happens, and not all loads are purely resistive - many are inductive. Inductive loads are motors (like your A/C), fluorescent lamps, computer power supplies, etc. - so figure more like around 30 amps total instead.

If you try to connect devices that require more than 30 - 35 amps, the generator will probably have problems trying to supply this load for any longer that a short length of time. Additionally, motors like those in A/C compressors draw significantly more power when first starting and can cause the problem you are describing. Try running the generator with loads other then the A/C to see how well it can supply the load(s). Or try running only 1 A/C unit and other non-A/C loads.

What I'm trying to tell you is that you may need to do some active load management to be sure that you aren't trying to get more power out of the generator than it is capable of supplying. You may need additional generators or swap this one to a larger size to handle the load properly and safely.

I hope this helps & good luck!

Honda eu3000is. runs but not putting out the full watts. Is this a cheap or expensive fix?


I have the 5kw Honda and have no problem, but I have never tried to run 5,000 watts either. It is reaching max rpms? Air filter clean? Good fuel? Oil? Have you run it much, or does it sit? How do you measure the wattage? Add up a bunch of things like, skil saw, pump, fridge, etc? Let's see, skill saw at 13 amps x 120 volts =1560 watts. Fridge probably idles at 7amps, starter windings use 10 or so amps, tv, 500 watts, computer, I would not run anything electronic with a genny, unless I had a spike protector on it. Check it out, hope this helps.

How do I connect 2 1850 watt coleman generators together to have at least 3500 watts to run my camping trailer?


It wont work. Electricity does not work like that. you can't double the power just by doubling the watts or amps. there is a lot and lots of other things involved.
I would rewire you camper so that half is run be one generator and the other half by the other generator... SO lights and fridge on one and plugs and heater on the other maybe...

Is the house dead??? Did you turn off the main breaker in the house?? It sounds like you are sending voltage to the generator.Do you have a switch that stops the power from going down the street from your generator?? 3700 watts is not a whole house genny, you need more like 6500. 5000 min, unless you are just running the fridge and the lights. Is your "plug" wired into the fusebox through a breaker or straight to the bars? You gotta check these things out.

The power is out because of Hurricane Gustav. I have a 6500 watt portable generator and would like to use our clothes dryer which has a 220 volt requirement. Is that possible, and is there a special...


Dryers require a 40A circuit breaker to handle the current. According to Ohms Law: Watts = Volts * Amps. Therefore, you require a power capacity of 220V * 40A in order to safely run the dryer, which is 8800 Watts. This means your generator does not have enough capacity to run the dryer. If we consider the full power of your generator at 6500 Watts, this only allows for 29.5A, which is not enough to run your dryer.

If it WAS possible, you would need to ensure that you ran a 30A heavy extension cord with the correct 220V plugs and receptacles on the end. This would require at least 10gauge 3-conductor wire, which is quite expensive.

However, that point is moot, since your generator does not have the capacity to run your dryer. You could try it, but I rather suspect that the dryer will trip the 30A breaker on the genset circuit. If you do try it, make sure you run a 10-gauge, 30A extension cord or you could have a fire.

Washer Power Requirements


Hello kgodsave,

You are not really going to run everything in the house while using your washing machine, isn't it? If your machine runs on 1 horse power (HP) motor (which is unlikely), thats already 746 watts. say you are running some little wattage appliances say total of 1,000 watts. Double that figure and you get 2kw. A 2kva to 3kva generator would be ideal...got plenty clearance for unexpected load.
