Uses outside air and if the outside air is hot not too good if its cool then just fan is needed.

Samsung freezes but not cooling


You need to post the model of the fridge for precise answers. In general, all refrigerators work by making the freezer section very cold and then opening/closing vent doors to blow some of that cold into the fridge compartment. There is a thermostat in the fridge section that opens the vent door when things need to be cooler, closes the door when cool enough. Look for that door and see that it works and make sure the blower is running and door vent not blocked (or frozen shut).

What exactly does max a/c and norm a/c do; the difference, and performance? What does recirc do and why is it available during max, norm, and bilev but not during defrost? The same a/c properties are...


Hello: Max cooling is when the recirculate door opens. With the recirculate door open, 80% of the air flow comes from inside of the car and 20% is outside air. That makes the cooling more efficient. Normal a/c operation is 100% of airflow comes from the outside. These settings have nothing to do with compressor operation. Also Decreasing or increasing the amount of cooling has nothing to do with compressor operation, what that does is control the amount of air going from the evaporator core either through or past the heater core. The a/c compressor runs the same amount of time regardless of settings on the control panel. Also in cool weather the compressor runs in the defrost mode to keep the windows from fogging up. None of these settings affect performance, the only time performance is affected is wide open throttle (WOT) in that mode the engine computer shuts off the compressor to allow max power of the engine, ie: passing gear.. When A/C is selected the compressor is on, none of the settings will affect gas mileage, ie, low/high, max/normal 60 degree or 90 degree.

Taken to long to dry


IF ELECTRIC

Check the following areas thoroughly to address this issue.


1. Venting
Make sure the dryer vent hose, as well as the rest of the vent duct, is not clogged.

Unless regular maintenance is performed, chances are there is a lot of lint accumulated inside the dryer. This might affect the drying time and could be a fire hazard. Make sure to have your dryer cleaned regularly. Because this might involve taking most of the dryer apart, it is recommended to have a qualified appliance repairman perform this task.

2. Thermostat
There are a couple of cycling thermostats inside the dryer. If one of them breaks down, it might affect the dryer's performance. Replace the defective thermostat.

3. Heating element
A heating element might only be partially burned out, in which case it would still work but will take longer time to dry the clothes. Replace the element if found defective.

IF GAS

HI, Check the following to address this issue further.

Note: Normal drying time for a dryer is about 45 minutes (some may take up to an hour).
