While that is not safe it could be done by bypassing the thermostat and letting the heat run.

Dh25 the cooling coils get frozen,the appliance sill working even the canister is full.

The normal operating temperature is above 65 F. Much below unless specially designed for low temperature they will freeze up.
They have a frost detector and will defrost but it is very inefficient and not practical. My experience they eventually form a block of ice on the coils. They heat the room in the process so in a moderate area they can raise the temperature and provide needed circulation.

In the past where the temperature is cool I have faced the output into a corner, raised it off the floor and once the unit got started the heat created from the unit kept the air warm enough to avoid freezing up the coils.

Always check for recalls. Some models have had problems and have been recalled. See the link below.

My dyson fan was serviced last winter by you as it was recalled now it does not work , the lights come on and the motor runs 2 seconds and dies

Hi Kathy, it's Jack at Dyson.

I'm sorry to hear you're concerned about your Dyson fan heater. However, this could be normal behavior from your machine, as the heater would usually display an error code if was an actual fault.

If the target temperature you've selected (shown on the LED display on the front of the machine) is equal to less than the ambient room temperature, the machine may run momentarily until the intelligent thermostat shuts it off.

The solution is to raise the target temperature, using either the remote or the controls on the base of the machine, until the heater runs. It's important to keep in mind that what you're selecting is the temperature you want the heater to heat the room to - so the machine won't run if the room is already at or above the target temperature.

I hope this helps, but if you'd like to discuss this with one of our experts you're welcome to call us directly on 0800 298 0298 (UK), 1-866-693-9766 (US), 1-877-397-6622 (CA) or 1800 239 766 (AU).

What should the water temperature be?

Dishwashers (d/w) require water temp to be in the 140 degree range to properly dissolve the detergents, oils and food waste in addition to aiding in the drying process. Most d/w have a heating element in it to assist in bringing the temp up to requirements, but not all. To know what your d/w offers, you will have to read the owners booklet that came with it. Many units will have a selection available for "sani heat" or "temp boost". These will also raise the water temp, but it is best to start with the hottest water available to it by running the sink faucet until you see steam in the sink. Keep in mind, water will steam at lower temps according to the room temp you are in. So steam does not necessarily mean you have 140 degree water. Water heaters have some adjustment to them, but that is best left up to a qualified plumber so you don't risk scalding. Hope this helps.

I have a ffus2613lp. Yesterday the alarm started going off with the doors closed. The inside temperature raised to room temperature. I pulled it out, cleaned everything, including compressor/coils. ...

Good Afternoon Friend,

I understand the Hi Temperature alarm was going off on your Frigidaire refrigerator, model# FFUS2613LP, and the temperature was room temperature. I also see that you pulled out your appliance and cleaned everything, including the compressor and coils. You turned your refrigerator back on and it froze a cup of water before you went to bed. However, when you woke this morning, your refrigerator was back at room temperature. I suggest contacting your local authorized technician for further assistance. They will be able to diagnose your appliance and determine why it keeps warming to room temperature. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

Raise temp above 120

Raising temperature above 120 degrees requires service call.
Or change dip switch settings and risk voiding warranty and causing service call expense.

Earliest versions of Rheem tankless 2006-8 let you set temperature up to 140 degrees F using remote.
However the hotter setting caused error codes because the burner cannot keep up with both high temperature and large volume of hot water rushing through pipe. Especially in winter with cooler incoming water that must be heated more to reach temperature set point.
The burner simply cannot keep up.
So Rheem changed maximum temperature at remote control to tepid 120 degrees, which is not hot enough for folks wanting hot shower, or folks filling whirlpool tub because water in tub cools before tub fills.

Fluval m200 heater is lit and warm but still hasnt heated tank after 36 hrs..200 ltr tank is this normal

Hello. You haven't stated the room temperature and what temp you are trying to raise your tank to, but it sure sounds like the tank is too large for the heater wattage you chose for the tank. The basic rule of thumb is 3-5 watts per gal (about .75 to 1.5 W per ltr) to raise the tank 5 deg-F (approx 2.5 deg-C) above room temp. If you need to raise the tank temp even more, then you will have to choose a larger heater. Using the rule of thumb I would choose at least a 300W heater for a 200ltr tank. Also, do not forget to include the capacity of your refugium/sump, if you use one, in the calculation of your water quantity because you are heating that mass of water as well as your tank.

Can i use the tumble dryer in an unheated outside room

Good day,
No reason you can't use it. No harm to the dryer except.......
Domestic appliances including dryers, and refrigerators were designed to work in an environment comfortable to the inhabitants. I.E. minimum of 65 to 70 degrees.
For example, the dryer takes air in from the rear, and heats it to approx. 140 degrees. No problem if the air is entering at 70 degrees, a rise of 70 degrees.
If the air enters the dryer at 35 degrees, it would have to raise the temperature to 140 degrees, an increase of 105 degrees.
Questionable if it could do that.

The down side would be if you used automatic to dry. The timer runs only when the heat cycles off, and if it doesn't, it would never quit running.
The solution would be to set it on time dry and adjust as needed.
Easy enough to adjust to.
Worth a try. No serious problems other than that continuous running situation.

Thank you for using FixYa

Where is the pilot light on Goodman mod. PGB042100-1 REV A

This model has electronic ignition. You will need to remove the top panel, tape the door switch closed, have an assistant raise the thermostat above room temperature while you look thru the small window for an orange glow. If you do not see the glow, chances are you have a bad igniter.

Room temperature goes too low

When room temperature drops lower than the set temperature on the thermostat, it usually means that the thermostat is improperly calibrated or installed where it doesn't sense a proper sampling of room air.
