SOURCE: Buzzing sound and not cooling

it looks like you have a bad compressor. try replacing the ptc starter and the run capacitor, if it did not change anything, then you have a bad compressort that needs to be replaced. if those parts are expensive, test the capacitor by using an analog meter, test the terminal using the X100 resistance. the meter needle should indicate continuity and slowly goes back to infinity. then reverse the terminals to the test prods and it should happen again. then test the resistance of the ptc starter, it should have a reading between 20 ohms and 100 ohms. and there whould be no rattling sound inside the ptc starter. hope i was able to help...

Its normal for the drain pump to run for 5 to 15 seconds and then your washer should fill and you wash pump should run if your was pump is not running and just makes a humming sound then your start capacitor may need changing see the link below this is a simple task and not expensive. When ordering a new capacitor make sure it is the same size in ?F.

Make sure the capacitor is the proper microfarad rating for the motor you have. Sounds like the motor may be drawing too many amps and dropping out on it's overload when hot, then when it cools it turns back on.

I would suspect the starter relay and starter capacitor. Either the contactor - relay is not "holding" the relay closed or the cap is not.

Buzzing Sound at Base of Unit does not go away


If everything is working as it should - the problem may be with the motor.
Either the starter is starting to fail, or it may have gotten wet. Check for leaks around the base, and be prepared to eventually replace the motor.
If you can deal with the humming, there is no reason to replace it at this time, and there is nothing you can do to quiet the noise.

Thanks for using FixYa!

My fan inside run only 5second the ciruits board been change out speed taps move to another tap it run through a cycle then when it come back it only run 5 second i need help ?


Shut the power off to the unit, spin the blower wheel to see if it spins freely. If it doesn't spin freely, (there appears to be a little drag when you spin it),the bearings are bad, if it does spin freely, then try moving the motor shaft from side to side if there’s any play in the shaft side to side then the bearings are worn and motor needs replaced. Then, check the capacitor, if it’s bulging even slightly, the capacitor is bad and needs replaced. Most of the time people replace the capacitor if motor seems ok. If capacitor is ok, turn power on to see if the motor is getting the proper voltage, if it is and not trying to run, then the windings are probably open, the motor's bad and needs replaced.

Fan stops turning after about 30 seconds


this sounds like one of your capacitors has failed
using an insulated screwdriver and, power not applied remove the spade connectors from one of the capacitors then short the capacitor to ground to discharge it replace the spade connectors apply power and, turn it on if the problem changes replace the capacitor (a bad capacitor usually is "bulged")
there are usually two capacitors a run and, a start

Power supply problem


My tv did the same thing. Replace the capacitor marked C926 that is marked on the main(big) board. It fixed mine. The lead was broke off inside the capacitor.

TDP-S8


The main problem is the power supply. In detail, the output capacitor of the power supply causes the problem. I guess, Toshiba or Lite ON didn't consider the aging effect of the output capacitor. You should replace the output capacitor to fix the problem. (In some sites, they recommend to replace the power supply, but don't do that. The new power supply costs over $200 and the capacitor will be less than 50cents.) If you disassemble TDP-S8, in the power supply, you can find the electrolytic capacitor 3300uF/10V. You should replace this with any electrolytic capacitor with the range of 2000uF~4000uF/10~16V. You can download the service manual from some websites (I've paid $5 for this) then you can disassemble the projector. Of course, you need to do soldering to replace the capacitor. I've fixed this problem yesterday and it took about 4 hours for me. Good Luck~~!!
