Low temp can effect these. However 45 is not too terriblly cold. Usually like 30 degree freezing point can definately cause this. I would let it dry to room temp for 24 hours before trying to turn it on again. Otherwise the firmware may have to be updated which can be done from manufacture's website.
If it is not turning on, then the battery pack may be dead or the ribbon cable to main circuit board could be faulty. The ribbon cable problem is common in many devices. Often they have to be soldered on better or replaced in general.

Battery Charge at high temperatures and low

a-collection-of-photoshop-business-card-tutorials-and-free-psd-files-300x156.jpg Nickel-metal-hydride is less forgiving than nickel-cadmium, if applied in high and low temperatures. Nickel-metal hydride may not be quick to load below 10 â° C (45 â° F) and can not be slow to load below 0 â° C (32 â° F). Some industrial chargers are designed to adjust the rate to the current temperatures. price sensitivity does not allow the processing temperature sensing charger consumers.
At higher temperatures, the charge acceptance of nickel-based BTP-58A1 batteries is drastically reduced. A HP 530 battery that provides up to 100% when applied at moderate temperature can only accept 70% if charged at 45 â° C (113 â° F) and 45% if charged at 60 â° C (140 â° F). This demonstrates the poor performance of some summer car charger.
Lead-acid is fairly tolerant to extreme temperatures, as we are familiar with our car batteries. Part of this tolerance is accredited to the slowness of the system lead-acid. Some brands Inspiron Mini 9 (all 8.9 series) battery can freeze and low loads, while others say the damage and provide reduced service and a short life.
To improve the performance of lead-acid battery to colder temperatures and avoid thermal runaway during periods of heat, the control voltage limit, at which the INSPIRON 9300 battery is charged, is important. Implementation of this measure can extend the battery life of up to 15%. General guidelines suggest a compensation of approximately 3 mV per cell per degree Celsius. The voltage regulation has a negative coefficient, meaning that the threshold voltage decreases with increasing temperature.
Heat kills DV2000 battery. The hotter the cells, the shorter the life. High temperatures can not always be avoided, especially during fast charging, but efforts must be made to keep this short time. While 45 â° C (113 â° F) is acceptable if kept short, at 50 â° C (122 â° F) and above, the battery starts to suffer. Note that the cells inside the packaging are always a few degrees warmer than the temperature of the body.

1994 Buick Lesabre calls for a 160 or 180 degree thermostat

that is the opening temperature for the thermostat
it opens at 160 degrees which is good for hot weather operation or another with 180 degrees which is good for cold weather operations
The differences is 160 opens sooner to start coolant circulation to keep operating temperature low where the 180 keeps shut and allows the operating temperature to rise up as soon as it open the cold air will quickly cool the coolant.

The temperature on my Heartland refrigerator fluctuate between 34 deg and 50 deg, is this normal?


How long does this temperature issue last? When you notice this issue how long does this sit at the hire temp, 1 hour? I am trying to understand why Heartland/Marvel would ask you to turn it off. Please let me know. Thanks

Coaster idling high and high fuel consumption

Water temperature is low cost oil is certainly the easiest way is with a hard shell to block part of the warming effect of the radiator well as for how much you want to try to stop. Idle temperatures will rise up relatively low. What is the pull speed? Not run fast but continues to run uninterrupted some time. Usually two hours can be. Is to allow the engine to reach full swell purpose. Such a shift is to be based on the vehicle speed and the reference engine speed. Not based on the engine speed. Driving is probably the single 30 towards third gear, fourth gear towards forty, fifty five-speed ahead. Many people on the car ahead of change. As long as the engine sounds smooth, no trailer can be.

Engine broke due to low temperature

The water expands up to more than 9% when it freeze below 0 degrees Celsius. Due to this phenomena, during the extreme cold weather when the ambient temperature falls below 0 degrees the cylinder blocks of the automotive engines often burst or crack badly.
This damage can be prevented by using the antifreeze coolant in the cooling system.

On my 1996 ss impala what low side pressure should I see on the a/c with the system running

It all depends on the outside (ambient) air temperature. Your A/C low pressure switch is designed to turn the compressor off at 24 Psi. and turn it back on at 45 Psi. Most systems will normally run at between 25 and 40 Psi when the system is running on HIGH blower and "MAX" or "RECIRCULATE". A system that is fully charged may run at 25 Psi when the ambient temperature is 75 Deg. (F) and may run at 40 Psi when the ambient temperature is at 90 Deg. (F). (it can be even higher if ambient temperatures are higher than 90 Degrees.)

To properly diagnose a malfunctioning A/C system, the HIGH side pressure must also be checked. Restrictions in the system can make the low side pressure look normal while the high side pressure is high enough to blow hoses apart. (400+ Psi.)

Ist ik for capacitors to be expose on heat inside my room when i am out because all the windows are close? the heat is about 40 to 45 degrees celcious.

Most capacitors are designed to have an effective heat usage range before they start to change capacitance values. They will normally run in an environment of below 32F to 120F without any variation in the capacitence rating of the capacitor. Beyond these points the capacity may start changing.

Freezer quits working

Solution Found! The problem is when the temperature surrounding the refrigerator in the garage falls to < 45 degrees, the thermostat regulating the refrigerator will not call for the compressor to kick in to provide cooling (it's temperature requirements are being met). Since there is no demand, the compressor will not cycle, which is how the freezer is kept cold, and the freezer eventually warms up to match the refrigerator temperature. Frigidaire makes a "Cold Kit" that I ordered and installed from for $22 (Item #: 1037646; Description: Garage kit). It's basically a strip heater that runs off the control power to warm the thermostat and causes the compressor to cycle once to twice a day to keep the freezer frozen. After installation, the refrigerator stays at 40-45 and the freezer stays around 0 degrees.
