That model has a flaw that the defrost heater is woven into the evaporator. I think you may have a 5 year sealed system warranty and if the defrost element is defective the complete sealed system evaporator will need replaced. So I believe that a complait filed to the company regarding this flaw will get their attention and may solve the cost of repair.

2 of my 7 sony tv's have started blinking on and off, but after unplugging for 2 months one stopped blinking for awhile but started again. how do i fix these tv's? models kv-27ts32 and kv-24fv12

You cannot fix these by yourself. You'll simply need to call in a Sony-authorized Techie and pay the gentleman his asking fee to diagnose and repair your TVs. It sounds like the flyback transformers are about to say "bye, bye" to you, and this is normal. Sorry to hear about these unfortunate circumstances but nothing in life is guaranteed to last for ever. They do quit sooner or later....Especially the nicer ones! And it may not be worth the cost to repair them.

Water dispenser quit working. Water supply is good continuity through solenoids is good.

Mine does the same thing, you have to open the door and let the water defrost, you have to keep doing this. The freezer door does not have the proper insulation to keep the water line from freezing. As soon as I can, my side by side is going bye bye

Freezer is not cold, side wall is very hot, it is 14 years old is it worth fixing?

Probably not. It probably has a leaking compressor and it would cost about 250 dollars to have a tech come out, trouble shoot it, and reseal the sealed system, and recharge it, only to find that the compressor is on it last leg or there is another weak link that has not just reached it life expectancey yet.

14 years is a good life for any refer. Cheap or expensive. Obviously we have all heard of the refere that lived 35 years and served Granny like a trooper, and that could happen still, but believe me it is exception rather than the rule. Give it a good bye hug and get another. Heck, if you still like the unit, drill it full of holes and make a smoker out of it and enjoy your fish, red meat and other items... A refer makes a great smoker.

Hope this helps.

Vacumm Condenser light flashing


Your unit is sensing that the condenser fan is running at a lower rpm than it should. that is how you get the signal. You will need to replace the condensor motor if your coils are cleaned already. That is the only cure for your problem. I hope this helps you out.

Freezer cool but not cold

It sounds like it is due for a shot of freon (or most likely R-134A), and most fridges have a crimped coolant line instead of fittings to connect to for recharging. Call a few refrigerator repair guys and get some quotes, and then compare the price of a new, more energy efficient fridge. You will probably decide you are better off just buying new, considering the average life span of white goods is around 10 years, and no telling what will go bad next.

2000 s10 starter last only 2 months,

I would check current draw with a good ammeter & se how much current the starter draws when cranking. I owuld guess about 400 amps, but check with Delco. Other possibility is starter is binding on flywheel.
Did you disassemble one of the faulty staters to see if armature is rubbing on magents or coils?
Are these starters remans or new? Remans sometimes have problems.

Samsung RS2630AWW freezer works/fridge does not

Chances are the fuse in the evaporator section is bad and won't go into defrost automatically.  Samsung refrigerators are junk!  Good luck getting anyone to service this one.
