Hi there. I assume the indoor fan runs continuously until the house has cooled down. Clean the condenser. (outside unit)
Another possibility is that the system is getting low on freon. Check for leaks with soapy water at all joints and fix them.
Thanks
Paul

Why hasn't the oven reached the set temp when the buzzer sounds indicating desired temp has been reached?


What are you using to measure the temperature of the oven? If you using a typical round oven thermometer, the reason is that your thermometer response is slow. It takes about 20 minutes for those thermometers to reach and display the actual temperature, and your oven is probably reaching it's set temperature in about 10 minutes. You really need an electronic thermometer or at least one of those liquid thermometers which you can sometimes find at Ace Hardware or True Value Hardware stores.

Is this a gas fired furnace? If so it may be going off because one of the safeties is tripped. There is a high temp safety that will shut the unit down when this temp is reached. The usual cause is low airflow. Check your filters, if these are OK you may have a blocked coil which should be professionally cleaned.

Air conditioner shuts off early.


Hi, thermostats is not problem , it's asking for cooling when it should, it's your condensing unit outside, if mechanics said, system is o/k. then it's location of condensing unit, check location of your condensing unit, in relation to direct sunlight, condensing unit best location is always a cool place, preferable away from direct sunlight, check to see, when unit is doing that, if it's expose to direct sunlight, that could be your problem, direct sunlight for long periods could cause the high pressure & temp. controls malfunction. or maybe system is not fully charge with freon, double check freon charge. if direct sunlight is your problem, build a shade or change location of condensing unit, good luck.

I have a magic chef 1.7 cubic compact refrigerator, it's been great, but I had quite a bit of ice build up on the little freezer compartment. I unplugged it, and used a hair dryer to melt the ice until it...


OK as long as you used a hair drier, and not a screw driver to defrost this machine, you should be fine, it shoudl take no more then 24-36 hours to regain the correct temp, this being said, not real comfortable with the over the internet diag of a unit that potentially "keeps people alive"
