SOURCE: Re-circulating pump will not shut off.

The bin has to reach the thermostat bulb before it can shut off. take s cube or two and rub it on the bulb. (the small wire looking thing on the side of the inside is the bulb) If everything shouts off then its working fine just needs to fill up, if not filling up - well that's another story. If you do this with 2 cubes and it doesn't shut off the thermostat is bad. Replace it and your problem is gone.
Hope this helps please rate me even if you read this more than 1st time please rate me accordingly and Good Luck.

My dehumidifier runs for short time then shuts off.

Check the filters, the water tank and what setting you have it on. The unit will cycle on and off to maintain the humidity level you want. If its set too high, the unit may only have to operate for short periods.

My duo therm 13.5 btu rv air conditioner started making a popping sound and dimming the lights like it's trying to cycle to shut off. Well then it started triping the circuit breaker so I changed out the 2...

The best guess is that you have a bad thermostat. When the compressor shuts off it has to stay off for a long enough period of time for the low pressure high pressure to equalize. If it turns the compressor off and back on immediately it can't start against the heavy load created by these unequal pressures. If it will start every time after sitting for 10 minutes the thermostat is making it short cycle.

Compressor UP6 25 125, runs all the time but is only under load for a short time, should it shut down between loads?

This unit will shut down if unloaded for a set period of time. Usually 5 to 10 minutes. This time could be longer if some one has changed it from the factory setting. There is a timer in the control box that starts counting down when the unit unloads. If it stays unloaded long enough for the timer to count down the unit will stop until the air pressure drops to the low set point on the pressure switch. It will then start up. If the unit loads before the counter counts down the timer starts from the beginning when it unloads again. This cycle continues until you manually shut it down or you stop using air long enough for the timer to reach Zero and shut down.

My Sony Trinitron stand by/timer light is on and will let me put tv on but only stays on for a few seconds . Model #KV27S66 Oct 99

Your TV has an overload due to some faulty components inside it. This type of fault is usually noted with overheating of horizontal output transistor connected to LOT of the TV. This may be due to LOT fault, or fault to the transistor itself. When it overheats, it put a short between supply rail, and the power supply regulator system inside your TV will detect that short and will shut down automaticaly. Please note; if the TV works after some time, say after 15 or 20 minutes; and again shuts down after working for a short period, and the cycle repeats, surely there is a winding short inside LOT, which cannot be detected by normal multimeter measurments. If it is so, replace LOT and the horizontal output transistor at the same time.

My whrilpool upright freeze not cutting out motor keep running continuously how can i fix this problem.

Hi, slowly get to the thermostat/control and slowly back it off to see if the unit will shut off. Now, let it stay off for 5 to 10 minutes so the pressures in the system will equalize or it won't start. After it sets this time period, slowly turn it to the colder position until you here it come back on and put a mark at the control knob so you know where it started up. You may just be in need of some cleaning. Behind the unit, you should have a lower panel that can be removed to excess the compressor, condenser coil, and condenser fan motor. Unplug this unit, remove panel and take a look with a good strong light at the coil. You will have lint build up on the front as the air is drawn back through this coil by the fan to cool the refrigerant that removes heat from in the box.After cleaning, you should be able to shine a flash light through it and see very well if its clean or not. This will keep the head pressure down to a normal operating temperature. Put it back together and start it up by plugging it back in. Watch the units operation to see if the compressor will cycle on and off like it should. When the freezer is cold, make sure the evaporator fan inside is also running. Get back to me on this and keep me updated on it, and tell me how dirty this coil was if it was. I will be checking to see if you have contacted me on this. It may be the thermostat, but I need to know the condition of the other sections. It could also have a small enough freon leak to cause the compressor to run, and run. If it gets low enough, it will short cycle on and off, you will know when it happens. Contact me by my user name below.

Washer Pauses and Shuts down Repeatedly

Check the cold water line into the unit. Remove the hose from the washer and clean the screen. flush the line while it is disconnected into a bucket or small garbage can. Your washer wont advance without a fill and most fills/rinses are with cold water

Heater kicks out

Honeywell heaters like HZ3650 have a screen on the air inlet at the back side of the heater. This screen can be partially blocked off by an accumulation of lint, etc. The lint blocks some of the air flow which may cause heat increase within the heater to the point that the safety shutoff thermostat shuts off the power. Operation is returned after a cool down period only to repeat the shut down cycle after a short period of operation. If this is the cause of the problem the screen must be cleaned.
