SOURCE: Heater problems

Did you bleed the air oout of the cooling system - Their is a bleeding next to the therostat housing.


1 - When the vehicle is cold remove the rad(tank) cap and top up the level if needed

2 - start the vehicle with the rad cap off and leave the car run until you can see that the therostat has openned(look in tank/rad) to see fuild flow then open the bleeder slowly to let any air out of the cooling system. Once you have coolant flowing out of the bleeder close the bleeder and install the rad/tank cap.

NOTE - Be careful with the engine running and hot Coolant.

You make need to bleeding system 2-3 time to get all the all out. Once all the air is out of the system you problem should be solved. If air returns to the coolant system have the system checked for possible head gasket leaking air into the coolant system

SOURCE: Heating system only blows out hot air through the vents

I would look at the air blend doors first, it sound like they are not working or your control in the dash is not working send a signal to them. they work by changing the air from hot to cold or in between.

when bleeding the system to get the air out, you may want to turn of the heater to help get all the air out of the system.

SOURCE: tempature control knob

There's a white lever under the dash near the steering wheel. You can change from heat to cold with that instead of the knob! If you look under there you'll see it and just push it up for heat pull towards yourself for cold.

Why is the thermostat temp. range reading 30 degrees lower than it should be


Thermostat controls are nothing but variable resistors. Sometimes they build corrosion in the metal tab that it is sliding on. First try rotating the knob back and forth several times full range. If it is a slider instead of a knob, move it up and down full range. (This should be done on a regular basis.) If that does not work then shut the power off to the unit and get some contact cleaner. You can buy it in any electronic store. Spray the contact cleaner into the back of the control and work the knob full range again. It should feel easier to turn after a few turns. This should do the trick. If it doesn't, you need a new thermostat.

Install trim and adjust the thermostat on a Grohe shower faucet


Before you install the temperature control knob, adjust the valve body (47111) with a wrench to set the temperature to "100 degree or close to it". Now, place the limit ring to tdc (top dead center) and control knob with the red 100-degree align to it. Your problem may have been the valve's temperature setting is out range when you installing the temperature control knob.

Viking Thermostat bad - Feels like Little House on Prairie


It does not sound like the guy is trying to rip you off. Most mechanical thermostats are adjustable by a center screw in the oven control knob stem behind the knob. The problem is when an oven is off by more than 30 degrees they become almost impossible to calibrate correctly and it is better to replace it. There would not be any danger in just using the thermometers and just living with the problem. It would be a very expensive fix for a Viking and if you can live with it then you are better off. The parts alone will probably be over $300 and then there is the labor charges. The thermostat assembly also includes the tempature probes so it requires major range dis-assembly to replace it. Sometimes the oven control knob will have an adjustment screw on the knob istelf(back of knob) to adjust the position of the dial ring to match the correct oven tempature. This can allow you to change the position of the knob to match the actual tempature of the oven. They usually will only go 30 degrees one way or the other though. So my advice is that if you can live with it and are able to still cook properly then put off fixing it. If you find that over time the cooking tempatures start increasing then you might have no choice but to have the thermostat assembly replaced.

I have a frigidaire stove that heats to 50 degrees hotter than the know setting. Can it be adjusted to read correctly?


There is a calibration method to adjust the oven thermostat plus/minus 35 degrees if it is a digital display. The method varies depending on the model range. This calibration method is used to adjust the thermostat if it is not keeping proper tempature. For example if you are setting the oven to 350 and the actual temp it is keeping is 325 then you could use the calibration method to adjust it plus 25 degrees to correct the temp. Just so you know electric ovens will keep a pretty even temp but gas ovens will vary by 40 or more degrees to keep an "average" temp. For example the burner will come on when the oven is 330 degrees and turn off at 370. 330+370 then divide by 2=350. So a oven thermometer may not show you the temp you set it at in a gas oven but does not mean the oven temp is off.

Oven shuts down before reaching correct temperature


You will need to check the oven calibration using a thermocouple based thermometer(the one you stick in the oven is not reliable). Electric ovens should keep a near constant tempature so if you have it set to 350 the oven should stay around 350 once temp is reached. Now gas ovens are a little different. Most use a on/off thermostat and that means the temp can vary from 320 degrees to 370 degrees to keep an average tempature of 350. So if it is a gas oven you will need to let it warm-up for 10 minutes then start taking the lowest and highest 5 consectutive readings. Then add the 5 reads together and then divide the number by 5 and it should be within 10 degrees of the set tempature. If it is off by more than 50 degrees then you might not be able to get it back to proper calibration. The calibration methods are different for each range and depend on the type of thermostat you have digital(push button controls) or manual(knob). The owner's manual for your range might contain the instructions or consult the manufacture's website for the instructions.

I can not change the thermostat setting on the unit. Whenever I try to change it, it reverts back to the previous setting.


The thermostat will display the current tempature in the room. When you press the buttons to change the tempature and you see it change back it is probably going back to the room tempature display but still keeping the temp you set it at. Also make sure the "hold" feature is set or the temp you choose can change at different times during the day due to the programmable features built into the thermostat.

Oven tempature is 35 degrees celcius less than set tempature even after adjusting oven tempature control


if you read your tappan instructions, it will tell you to turn your oven to 550 degrees, then press and hold the bake button for 15 seconds. it will blank out and go to 0. adjust temp up or down accordingly. peace out.

Too hot


Hi, not sure if you ever received a reply, but there is a setting known as "bypass" on commercial thermostats, if you took the cover off to replace it, you can access this screw, it is part of the body of the thermostat, either to the left or the right of the knob shaft, usually has a "B" stamped, or molded into the body. What this setting does is when the thermostat reaches temperature, it would normally close, shutting off the supply to the burner, thus the temp would begin to fall, by the time it opened back up, the temp would have fallen too much, causing a large temp swing. The bypass setting opens or shuts a passage that "bypasses" the thermostat main valve, keeping just a little burner, making the swing, or fluctuation smaller. So, you probably have a setting too big, causing your bypass flame to be too big, raising, or keeping the temp too high, try turning it in (cw) to lower it slightly, a small turn makes a huge difference, so go easy. Hope that helps, and thank you.
