It is a Total Hayward System. The thermostat and, control box, freeze protection unit is located in my back yard behind a fence. When you say the thermostat is probably malfunctioning, do you mean the freeze protection switch? If so, would i need to change that part?

It is hard to say with very little information in your problem. But if your having problems with a temp control of any kind and things run but not at the right time the first place to look is your temp sensor. this is a cilinder usually copper or stanless steel about half the size of a ciggeret and a little smaller around with two wires coming out of the end of it. If it reads water it will be inside a pipe and you just have to follow the wires. If it is a air sensor it will probally be just below the control box and ether hanging free or mounted to the wall, but it should be in the shade. If this is on a heater it will be found inside the unit usually on the main water header.

I need some kind of fence with at least 1 gate. I have vinyl fencing on both sides in the back yard, but it's only privacy fencing to separate the yards. I have 2 small dogs and I can't let them out i

You could probably continue the vinyl fencing but that will cost a lot. You could always use a chain link fence which is really cheap and easy to install but it won't look right.

Samsung side by side fride

The first thing I would check is that the condenser grill under your unit is clean and the air flow is not blocked (also that the lower fan is blowing air across the coils. Even if that is not the total cause it will help your unit operate more effeciently. The condenser grill is under your unit accessed by taking off the front kick panel and also through the rear.
The second thing I would check is for ice build up around the evaporator coil (located in the back of the freezer section). If there is ice build up then you probably have a defrost system failure. This circuit is made up of the defrost heater, defrost thermostat (both located in the freezer section close to the evaporator coil) and the defrost timer which is located in the fresh food side (or if newer frig, part of the control board)

Code c776 on a rheem tankless hot water heater. How do I disconect the remote and let water heaterdefault to 120 degrees??? I have the UMC-117 remote. Also any way to put a thermostat on this thing to...

The remote is hardwired to the tankless unit.
Turn power off. Open front cover, and locate wire connections and disconnect. Turn power back on. Open hot tap and see if unit works at 120 degrees F default temperature. If not, then problem can be PC board.
Typical schematic showing remote controller connection:

Some tankless units have built-in freeze protection.
I live in Texas and did following to protect my outdoor water heater: Thermostat controlled heat tape around pipes, and build a box around water heater out of styrafoam, and then put light bulb inside styrafoam box. I hooked up 120Volt mechanical thermostat to light bulb circuit.

Open following links for error codes, typical manuals, Rheem contact phone and chat, plus regular maintenance manual:

I have just replaced the thermostat in my mitsubishi outlander 2006 zf 2.4l auto wagon and I am flushing the radiator but i need to know the coolant/radiator capacity and the ratio of coolant/water

Hello aislin87,

The total engine coolant capacity is 7.4 quarts.

Just changing the thermostat should not drain the entire system so you wont need that much.

The recommendation is above 30% but below 60% anti freeze to water to provide for proper freeze and anti-corrosion protection.

Circuit Protection The fuse panel is located below and to the left of the steering column.
Fuses are a one-time circuit protection. If a circuit is overloaded or shorts, the fuse will blow thus protecting the circuit. A fuse will continue to blow until the circuit is repaired.

Main fuse box located on driver's side to the left of the steering wheel, above the brake pedal.

Check rear wall of freezer by feel for frost. Heavy, even frost indicates likely problem in the defrost system. Unplug unit. Defrost heater (in freezer behind rear wall panel), defrost thermostat (same area-must be checked at freezer temperature) or Defrost timer-located lower back outside of unit. Near compressor. Do continuity test on heater and defrost thermostat and if they show continuity (good), replace defrost timer. If not, replace the one that tests bad.

Defrost coils fully. Reassemble.

Please let me know if I have helped with comments and rating.

Refrigerator will work about 7-10 days after being defrosted until thick frost builds up again cutting off air flow to both compartments
