Scott, The cooling unit has a hole in it allowing the solution to escape. This may have a recall on it and it may or may not be covered. Go to Dometics site and there is a link for putting your model and serial numbers in. Either way cooling unit needs to be replaced. Jim

Kitchen Table Investigation, Projection Lamp, Course 101


Mercury Vapor lamp... how does it work? How do you know when it's bad? I'll try to shed some light on this topic. *Caution: material for the curious follows.

First, let's cover the basics: How it works.

A Mercury Vapor is a mix of electro-chemical and some mechanical ingenuity. Although some may not agree with me, I will state my case anyway. The lamp has a few basic parts. The reflector, which we all see, is used to direct the light in the intended direction... forward. Within the reflector, we have the actual bulb. The bulb contains the burner, mercury, and a fluorescent element. The width of the burner gap is critical for initial and sustained ignition of the lamp.

5556c33.jpg
When your turn on your projection TV, a power supply devoted to the lamp (known as a ballast) passed about 300+ volts of high energy electricity through the lamp, but only for a few seconds. This energy arcs across the burner and vaporizes the Mercury. With the Mercury vaporized, the mercury is now free to move around within the bulb. The power supply then switches into a driving mode and begins feeding about 10,000+ volts at a lower energy. This allows the arcing between the burner gap to continue. The mercury, which is excited by all the electrical activity, begins to slam into the florescent element. In turn, the element glows brightly.

So, that's basically how it works... but what you don't see is the damage. At one time or another, we have all plugged something into the wall and POW... sparks fly. If you had looked close at the plug, you may have noticed some pitting or damage from the spark. This is an electrical arc. The same thing is happening inside your lamp, on a smaller scale. Each high energy ignition causes material to be worn away from the burner. The lost material builds up as contamination within the bulb and the loss of material causes the width of the burner gap to grow.

Some maybe wondering... "Is there a secret formula for extending my lamp's life?" The short answer is: "Stop watching it." The long answer is: Never leave your TV on when you are not watching it; Allow your lamp time to cool before turning it back on (5 minutes to be safe); Allow your lamp to reach it's optimal temperature before turning it off (20 minutes to be safe).

Now that we have that mess cleared up, on to the discovery section of this article: "How can I tell if my lamp is bad?"

Well, in most cases, there are warning signs: Picture is getting much darker; Seems fine at first, but then goes out and comes back on in a moment; Turns off after a period of time or doesn't light at all; I heard a loud pop. All of these are classic warnings or indicators that your lamp may need some attention.

You should allow your TV is cool for about 20 minutes and pull out wall plug and then remove the lamp for inspection. You will need a well lit area to get a good look at it. Do a once over: Did the bulb burst; Does it look smoked up? If it looks good, have a glance at the base of the burner:

e3feb05.jpg

Does it have a smokey mark on one side? This is the contamination from the burner gap. This contamination builds up throughout the life cycle of the lamp. As the burner gap grows, the lamp resists the electricity that is be pushed to it to make it burn. This resistance creates heat. Some lamps will create so much heat that the glass surrounding the burner will begin to melt and swell. You may look into your lamp and see a big silvery blob protruding from this area. These are all clear indicators of trouble in the works.

Unfortunately, some lamp show no visual signs at all... for these, you can only replace them and hold your breathe.

I hope you are able to use this information to better guide your lamp purchasing decisions. Let me know it this was helpful.

I suggest that you open the unit and inspect the burner area. UNPLUG first, of course. Most likely you have lint or other foreign material around the burner element.

Flame is flickering


The Dometic refrigerators use an ammonia coolant which makes it different from residential units. A good steady flame is essential for proper operation. So first make sure that you are using a winter mix fuel, and that you tank is not close to empty. Obtain a long handled VERY SMALL wire brush (brass if you can find it), and then go into the back of the unit. First, gently clean the around the pilot light area especially the thermocoupler. Check the burner unit and see if you have a mostly blue or a lot of yellow flame. The yellow flame indicates impurities so you would would to clean that area of the burner.

My 41000btu patio heater just goes to all flame and little heat when tunred up -0 bought at Sam's a couple of years ago. It used to pop off, but this year it works but little heat and all yellow flame. Thx


All yellow flame means the gas and air mixture is off kilter. If there is an adjustment it probably got knocked out of wack somehow. If no adjustment there is corrosion or some other obstacle, insects, spider webs or stuff like that blocking the air flow where the mixture takes place. I'm not certain what kind of heater you have to be of more help but if you clean the areas where the gas goes through, especially around where it mixes with the outside air before it burns, it will likely solve your problem. Areas of your burner itself might be blocked forcing the gas to find its way out in another area of the burner. This will cause twice the amount of gas and same amount of air which may cause this problem as well. Purchase a small, thin and round wire brush that will fit though the ports of your burner to clean that out.

My dryer is 14 years old and is now leaving dark lines on my clothes. The vent inside the dryer has a dark color around it.What could this be?


If the dryer is gas this could be caused by a restricted burner assembly causing the burner to be yellow and create soot. You will need to pull the bottom front panel off and inspect the burner flame. If there is not bottom front removable panel or burner inspection cap then you will need to remove the back panel on the dryer. The burner chould look blue(not yellow and soft). If you find the burner yellow you will need to clean out the compartment of lint then use compressed air to cler the burner assembly. After you have done this check the burner flame and m,ake sure it is blue. If it is you have fixed the problem.

I have a coleman furnace with a pilot light that keeps going out.When i manually light it the furnace runs 12 to 14 hours, then no more pilot light and i must relight.


Remove the burner and gas valve from the furnace and use compressed air to blow the area under the pilot area ans all around it. The dust and stuff usually cause a condition called "Lazy Pilot" and the flame is probably not going in the designed directions. While you have it out Id replace the thermocouple with a new one reassemble and re-lite and note the difference. The flame should be mostly Blue and no yellow (or vary little at the top end of the flame only) Orange in the top area indicates a good burning flame and the closer to the base the bluer it gets.


While you have the burner out look inside and inspect the inner heat exchanger for cracks or rusted open holes there should be none. Turn on your fan while inspecting and see if you feel the steady blow of air from it inside the heat exchanger indicating a hole. Don't confuse the air that may come down the flue with the air from the blower though. A little breeze is expected from this.

This will take care of over 90% of the problems with the "Blow out" symptom.

If you still have problems you can try and "turn up the pilot". Usually a screw close to the pilot tubing is covering the adjustment screw. Put some soap bubbles around it so you can see if it leaks or not and turn the screw out for more flame (CCW) and in (CW) for less.

Hope this helps Please grade me accordingly and good luck.
