I have the same issue. After troubleshooting it, I found that (on my unit) after the fryer has heated up, the microswitch that is pressed when you place the heating element into the fryer no longer makes contact and turns the unit off. This is a nice safety feature when it is operating properly, but is infuriating when you have a turkey that is halfway cooked, but has to complete cooking in the oven or a butane powered turkey cooker. I haven't yet been able to fix this problem. Not sure replacing the part will keep it from happening again. Don't want to bypass the safety switch, but I may have to.

Coffee maker turns off too quickly

Unplug the coffee maker for half an hour, then plug it back in. This will reset the computer inside the coffeemaker and the early shutdown problem should disappear! I was told this by Cuisanart when ours began shutting off early. It works!

Press start, lights up but shuts down after few minutes does not boil Why?

If it's consistently heating but shutting off early before boiling it likely has a faulty thermostatic (bimetal) switch. If it's random there could be other reasons.

My rice cooker shuts off early

check the bottom of the cooking pan. it should be clean specially at the center where the curie point switch comes in contact . If you used this pan for cooking using gas or other electric stove, you'll burn the bottom pan, this will make the curie point switch opens early as this switch is being cooled by the uncooked rice. Burnt, dirty, crusted and deformed bottom pans affects the function of curie point magnetic switch.

Would like to get basic channels for television without cable or satelite

Run autoprogram on ANT mode instead of cable. As long as you're not in an area in which they shut down the NTSC early, rabbit ears or extenders should improve reception. If you are in an NTSC-early-shutdown area, you must buy a digital converter box. for more details.
