you have a computer board in the back of the machine part number WR55X10942 everything runs through this board.look at this diagram,unplug the machine,remove everything out of the freezer and remove the back inside wall of the freezer,then remove the computer board cover,you'll see like a grey or bluesh looking connector with three pins,this is your defrost,the pin on the left is for the compressor,i unplug the connector,get two pieces of wire,stick them into the grey connector,one in middle and the other in the right side then with aligator clips clip them to the middle and right side post,plug it back in this way the compressor doesn't run,now check to see if the heater comes on,if it doesn't read out the heater with a meter,also if the heater doesn't come on common problem is a bad t-stat,you can cut the two wires going to the t-stat and connect them bypassing the t-stat,plug it back in if the heater comes on then you have a bad t-stat,if it doesn't then you have a bad computer board and change the more thing,there's a sensor on the top of the coil,it looks like a white bullet,if it has a black ring around it where the wires come out of it change it,the new sensor is all white,part number wr55x10025 and the t-stat is WR50X10068 go here to see parts
hope this helps,heater part number WR51X10055,if the heater looks all black inside the glass but reads good with meater change it out it's on it's way out if discolored

I put my electric fireplace on (not used for summer) it began to heat up - went clink and now the fan works but not the element. How do I repair or replace this pls?

Sara, it sounds like the heater's overheating switch turned the heating element OFF. This could be caused by a dirty heating element. As, they do collect dust, dirt, pet hair, etc. Cleaning it it (make sure the unit is turned OFF & unplugged) may solve the problem. A vacuum cleaner with a hose and crevice tool attachment works well to clean the heating element.

Hope this helps you and thanks for choosing FixYa..

Sa-ht540 f61 i have removed both fans and cleaned them thorourly but im still getting f61 just befor it turns its self off is there anything els i can do?

You don't say if perceived heat or dead fans are issues.

F61 usually means the amp has detected a short or a severe microprocessor error.

Generally speaking, an amp attempts to protect itself from heat, shorts, overloads and operator exuberance by refusing to turn on or stay on.

Overloads can be from excessive periods of high output or marginally low impedance loading by the speakers; and shorts would be wiring issues or a speaker blowing up.

You should be able to feel if it's hot. WHY is it overheating? Make sure it has sufficient ventilation on all sides and that vent holes are not blocked by dust balls. Ensure the fan (if equipped) is running as designed (some only operate on demand). Clean dust and debris from it.

If the amp comes back on after cooling, you're lucky. They only have so many self-protection cycles in their lives so continuously resetting or cycling their power without addressing the cause can do more harm than good.

If it protects immediately on a cool power up you should disconnect the speaker connections and try it 'nekkid'. If it comes up then diagnose which lead(s) are shorted. If it does not come up the problem is internal and should be left to an experienced and competent hands-on tech.

It heats for a minute or two and then stops heating.

The heater overload switch is sensing an over heating problem and is turning the unit OFF. It may be as simple as a clogged heating element. Over time they do become clogged with dust, lint, pet hair, etc. This is because the air intake for the heating element is a floor level. So, whatever is floating in the household air gets sucked into the heating element when the fan is ON. Using a vacuum with a hose and brush attachment works well in cleaning the heater element. Be sure the unit is OFF & unplugged, before attempting this. You may be able to access the heating element thru the lower louvered door. Or consult your Owner's Manual regarding the cleaning of the unit.

I hope this helped you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

It's only normal, if the heater reached the temperature level you have it set on. More than likely, the heater over heat switch shut the heater down. If that's the case, the heating element may simply need cleaning.

You can accomplish this by turning the unit OFF & Unplugging it. The heater element is under the stove and can be cleaned with a vacuum that has a hose and brush attachment. Even a crevice tool will help. The heaters over a short period of time, can get clogged with dust, lint, pet hair, etc. Keeping them clean will lengthen the longevity of the heater.

Hope this helps you. Please let me know.

From what you have described, it sounds like a case of delayed ignition or as the Owner's Manual calls it a "Combustion Control Fault"or "Incomplete Combustion". This can be caused by several things: A change in the gas pressure; dirty or clogged burner, electronic fault in the combustion controls.

Despite having it cleaned an services last Winter, 12 months have elapsed, with the unit just sitting and collecting dust and spiders. Portable Heating units should be serviced annually. Usually in the early Fall, before firing it up for the heating season.

Hope this helped you ... Cheers.

On my electralog heater, after about 5 minutes running the heat stops,fan is still running. Adjusting thermostat makes no change

From what you have described. it sound like the heating element is overheat and the automatic over heating sensor is shut it down. One of the primary reason these heaters overheat is that the become clogged with dust, lint & pet hair. Cleaning the heating element. may solve your problem. A vacuum cleaner (especially a Shop Vac) that has a hose, a brush attachment and a crevice tool, works well well in cleaning the heating element. Be sure the unit is OFF and unplugged, before attempting any cleaning.

Hope this helps you solve the problem.

No heat coming out. Think it the heating element.

You should use a meter to verify if that heater is bad before getting one.

If you've made sure you have it a heating (not fan only) mode, temp at max, room size large, and you still can't get heat, you may be out of luck. You can try rocking or tapping it firmly... If that works, you may have a loose wire, in which case unplug and do not operate! Most of times these heaters will have a hi-heat cutoff- some are replaceable, some not. You can open the case to check for loose wiring, just don't alter or bypass anything. You might find some funky screw heads - they're designed? to make it not serviceable.
