Hello,

Let's start by diagnosing the freezer;

Fan problem is one of the most common reasons for the freezer to start failing, this is called "frost free failure." Ice can build up on the evaporator coils over time, and this ice builds up until it starts blocking the fan. The fan is responsible for circulating cold air throughout the freezer, so if it is blocked the freezer will not be able to freeze any food. You can usually check this by removing an access panel in the back of the freezer to inspect the coils. If ice is built up on the coils, a hairdryer can assist in defrosting them.

It's also possible that the fan is not running at all. If the fan is burned out or the motor isn't running, cold air can't circulate through the freezer and everything will melt. You can normally hear the fan motor switch on and off from time to time. Listen for it and if you can't hear it coming on for an extended period of time, the motor may need repair or replacement. The wires connecting to the fan may be the problem, preventing the fan from receiving electricity.

Several other problems could be keeping your freezer from freezing:

There could be leaks in one or several of the hoses in the refrigerator, which results in the cold air being lost instead of circulating properly throughout the fridge and freezer.

If you have the freezer so full that the cold air can't circulate, your food will thaw even though the freezer isn't malfunctioning. Always leave some space open in the freezer and try to not store food right up against the cooling vents.

The thermostat might have shorted out, which means the freezer can't accurately determine how cold it is. If this is the case, the refrigerator would probably not be working, either.

If your defrost drain becomes clogged, the water in the line will just refreeze over and over again, which could damage the lines as well as the fan. Always check the drain and make sure no sludge is building up in it if you have a self-defrosting refrigerator.

Always try to keep the freezer door closed for long periods of time. The more the door is opened, the more warm air is let in and cold air is released. If the door is opened frequently, the freezer could be warming faster than the fridge can cool it, which will thaw your food

As for the fridge, the same solution but for more details. If refrigerator is not cooling properly can be due to a defrost timer, which is causing the fridge to go into defrost cycle. Usually it takes 45-60 minutes for refrigerator to come out of defrost cycle. If the timer goes bad then it will not come out of defrost cycle and can result in this kind of issues. It can also occur due to defrost thermostat, it allows current to pass through it at temperatures of 20 to 30 degrees Fahrenheit and prevents current from passing through it at 40 to 60 degrees. This is difficult to test, though, because it takes a prolonged, very-cold temperature to turn it on. The defrost thermostat is snapped onto the top portion of the evaporator. The thermostat sends temperature information to the processor. The defrost heater must be replaced when replacing the thermostat.

1. Remove the lower fan duct work from the evaporator cover.
2. Remove the 1/4-in. evaporator cover screws and remove the evaporator cover.
3. Disconnect the defrost thermostat wiring connector.
4. Remove the defrost thermostat from the evaporator.

I hope the above helps.......

Good luck.

Where is the water filter on my whirlpool model gx2fhdxvy09


Water Filtration System
The water filter is located in the upper right-hand corner of the
refrigerator compartment.
Do not use with water that is microbiologically unsafe or
of unknown quality without adequate disinfection before
or after the system. Systems certified for cyst reduction
may be used on disinfected waters that may contain
filterable cysts.
IMPORTANT: The disposable water filter should be replaced at
least every 6 months. If the water flow to the water dispenser or
ice maker decreases noticeably before 6 months have passed,
replace the water filter more often.
Replacing the Water Filter
To purchase replacement water filters, model UKF8001AXX-750
or model UKF8001AXX-200, contact your dealer or call
1-800-253-1301 U.S.A. or 1-800-807-6777 Canada.
IMPORTANT: Air trapped in the water system may cause water
and filter to eject. Always dispense water for at least 2 minutes
before removing the filter or blue bypass cap.
1. Turn filter counterclockwise to remove.
2. Remove sealing label from replacement filter and insert the
filter end into the filter head.
3. Turn the filter clockwise until it stops. Snap the filter cover
closed.
4. Flush the water system. See "Water and Ice Dispenser(s)."
NOTE: The dispenser feature may be used without a water filter
installed. Your water will not be filtered. If this option is chosen,
replace the filter with the blue bypass cap.

Windshield washer pump runs. Why does no fluid come out?


Plugged nozzles, cracked water line from the pump up to the nozzles, or a plugged filter in the pump. All these things can be the cause of your problem. Check them all and you'll find the culprit.

How to change air cond. filter lexus gs300 2000, has 6 disc cd changer where everyone says filter is.


It should be behind the glove box which you have to remove to get access to the filter door.
Is the CD changer directly behind the glove box ? Because in my car the changer is above the main part of the box, not behind it.

Have you changer the water filter? If so the line may be stopped up. Turn the water supply off and disconnect the supply line. Sometimes there is a strainner on the supply line thed can become clogtged. Also disconnect the supply line thet runs from the supply valve to the ice maker and make sure that it is not clogged.(This line shopuld be commected to a small valve at the botom of the unit. Hope this helps.

We had a lot of rain and mud got in the pool. i vacuumed the pool twice and the third time i vacuumed it, i put the filter on "waste" instead of keeping it on "filter". it cleaned up very well that way...


You may have to change the sand from to much mud. this requires removing the valve from the top and syphoning the sand with a "sand changer" then removing the latterals from the bottom.( they unscrew from the hub inside the filter and cleaning them. Return the correct the amount of sand covering the tube shaft that connects the valve to the hub sot he sand doesnot clog the flow again. Return valve to the top and it should flow freely again.

ED20TQ ; The Refrigerator is running only sometimes. It works then it doesn't. I can hear compressor. When it runs it runs fine. But then it stops for like 8 h or so. The ice will melt in the freezer.




you can bypass your freezer cold control by unplugging the control and connecting the wires together. Unplug from the wall first then plug it back up. and see if it keeps running. If it does the control is the problem.

How can I find a replacement 6 CD disc changer for my Audi A6 (2005 model) please?


Most of the OEM headunits and changers are made by common radio manufacturers. Visit http://www.crutchfield.com and contact them. They make adapters that will interface an aftermarket changer to your factory system. if you could get me a model number and any other info offf of the radio and the changer I will research adapters and which brands and models of changers will work.
