You can't get much help using little information, but my guess is it is reaching a high temp and protecting itself.

Does it have a timer cut off switch or a heat cut off switch? Sometimes when a heater reaches a pre-set temperature it cuts out, otherwise it could over heat and cause a fire.

An override would be using a jumper. Take the two wires off the back of the timer and connect them together with a wire nut. This will over ride the timer and keep it going 24-7...

Install a timer to control pool operation

Another option would be to get an electronic timer like the Intermatic P1353 that has 3 circuits on it that you could program to cut on and off at different times. For example, you could have one circuit that controls the pump and turns the pump on, then the second circuit would turn on the booster pump at a set time after the filter pump had come on and then the heater could be set to also run at a preset time after the pump circuit was activated. Since the pump, booster and heater are all 220, it's a straight forward hookup with everything in one timer box.

The lights, as stated before, would be on a separate circuit (110) and have its own timer or photosensitive eye set in line.

Freezer cold but fridge part struggling admiral hmg19149

Up under the control panel , will be a larger hole with a screw slot up inside . Once you find this hole , insert a screwdriver into the slot ( open the freezer door ) and turn the screwdriver slowly , until the freezer fan cuts off . This piece you are turning , is the defrost timer , and you have turned the refrig into defrost . Remove the food and icemaker ( if equiped ) and remove the rear inside freezer panel , by removing the 4 screws ( 1 on each corner ) . After removing the panel , look below the coils for a red glow (defrost heater ) . If you get the red glow , replace the defrost timer , pt # 68233-3 . ( This is while still in defrost ) . If no red glow , replace the heater ( pt # 61002045 ) and replace the defrost thermostat also ( pt # 61005254 ) The defrost thermostat , cuts the heater off , when defrosted enough , to keep the frozen food from thawing . This piece , a 1 " round cylinder , is clipped on the top of the coils , with 2 wires going to it .

My fridge isn't that cold despite it being on max but ice keeps building up on the back like the antartic then it melts all over shelves food and floor but the freezer works its and ideset 50/50

Your auto defrost system has failed. This consists of the defrost heater and defrost thermostat located behind the back panel inside the freezer. Take the panel off to see. The third part is the defrost timer. Part 4 on this diagram is your timer. Turn it till the freezer cuts off and then check the heater. It should be hot now. If it is, replace the timer. If it's not the heater is probably bad unless the defrost thermostat clamped to the coils is bad. You can bypass it to see if it's the problem.

Vulcan quasar40 keeps turning off we think it has a timer stuck on please help

Probably a bad clock, they **** out from all the heat up there. Have a gasfitter or electrician bypass it. (2 wire plug behind fan lever) - unplug it, cut off from the loom going up to clock, crimp the ends together on the plug you have just cut off, plug it back in. Your heater is now a manual with no dodgy clock.
