    Here is a better idea of what's happening:

    I have a RCA 36v550T set that will sometimes not turn on. If it does come
    on the picture is overscanned vertically(top to bottom). Also sometimes the
    closed captions come on by them self as does the menu. Sometimes the menu
    has jibberish(#@$!#$%^&%^&) kind of like that.

    Also sometimes it locks me out of a whole section of channels(says I need to
    enter a code) but the channels are not locked out. Also it has come on very
    dark and snowy a couple of times. I think maybe micro bad . Any one else
    had one of these?

    Thanks in advanced :)

Kelvinator Opal N360 Refrigerator section Temp adjustment (Switch not working?)

some can be changed or adjusted manually and some are controlled by a electronic control board called an adc ADAPTIVE defrost control board

read on

to check the defrost timer, u can get by and test manually by placing a small screw driver into the tiny slot or hole underneath the timer and turn slowly clockwise till u hear 1 click. this will engage ur defrost cycle in about 15 minutes u should be able to come back and feel the heat in freezer as it melts the ice providing ur terminator is not bad?
Another way to test it is with a multi meter. Remove timer it from fridge and you will see 4 prongs numbered 2,1,4,3 in that order. Place ur meter prong on prong 1 & 3 (if your fridge has a capacitor wired in series with the windings, then u check for micro fares rather than OHMS) If u cannot confirm this test, still try the next.

Take ur meter prong a

Some fridges are now using ADC boards.

Designers are using microprocessors (on solid state circuit boards) to adapt defrost intervals and durations to compensate for differences and changes in operating conditions. Such techniques are calledAdaptive Defrost Control, commonly abbreviated as ADC. Theu are normally found in same locations as the timer would be but look somewhat different in appearance. It is more difficult to test these units without the appliance schematic.
Some ADC / control boards control other functions of the refrigerator, too, such as icemaking and electrical air damper door opening and closing.The defrost frequency may also be shortened under certain circumstances.

AT TIMES YOU MAY HEAR THE COMPRESSOR CLICK OFF AND ON OVER AND OVER. Signs of a bad start relay or capacitor. Check with an OHMS meter for continuity (ohms) and voltage, capacitor can be checked for Microfares. ( if in series with the windings)

If you hear your compressor "short-cycling" (starting and stopping at short intervals) try jumping across the two leads of the cold control thermostat ( in the fridge compartment) with an alligator jumper. You can also check both for live voltage current and ohms- If there is a greenthirdlead, ignore it for this test; it is the ground wire. If the fridge starts running constantly, the cold control is bad. Replace it.

To check ur compressor with multi meter:
Disconnect and remove the relay and capacitor from compressor, sometimes located next to compressor in a casing.

You wills see 3 prongs coming out of compressor. 1 goes to ur start winding, 1 goes to ur run winding and the center goes to ur ground or COM

Place ur meter connector or prong on the start prong and the other on the ground (center prong) take note of the reading in OHMS for example 5 ohms.
Next place meter prong on run prong and the center ground prong agin. Take note of the reading in OHMS. Example 4 ohms

Next place meter prong on the start prong and the other on the run prong, now take note of the reading example 9 ohms. Now match the total of this ohms test with the total of ur two separate test. 9 ohms, if they match ur ok give or take 5 percent plus or minus. One more test to make to test of there is a short in compressor attach meter prong to ground prong and rub the other end of meter prong to metal ( scrape the metal clean of paint and test on metal surface not painted surface. If it shows continuity or ohms, u have a short in ur compressor. It should show infinity
God is so good: so this is why I give free advice so please thank him not me.


A 3 in 1 start kit for compressors sizes 1/4 through 1/3 HP. And a 5 in 1 for higher H.P. (BE SURE TO MATCH WITH UR COMPRESSOR MODEL NUMBER AND TYPE) The kit includes relay, capacitor, and overload device, pre-wired. The kit will replace all 3 electrical components on capillary refrigeration systems. For newer systems with a run capacitor use proper kit. For smaller horsepower compressors useTJ90RCO810.

The wire set up is as follows the red wire goes to the right side of compressor prong, the white wire to the left side prong, the black wire to the center prong, and the 2 other black wires go to the power and the ground connection

Got a used dryer had a 4 prong my house is 3 prong, changed the 4 prong to 3 prong plugged in and wont turn on, what do i do?

There is a difference between how a 3 prong and a 4 prong power cord is installed. Please read the following link:

If you have the power cord installed correctly and still do not have power, please check for 220-240 VAC at the wall receptacle. If you require additional assistance, please post back with your MODEL NUMBER and let me know. I hope this helps you.

I have a Ritetemp 6022 and can not get it to switch from Celsius to Fahrenheit. What do the instructions mean by separate the control unit from the wall mounted terminals?

It means to remove the little blue (mine are blue) squares on the two prong things( they have numbers next to them). With the blue things on the two prong numbered things on top of the unit it turns on the function of Celsius, 24 hr clock and other things. I had this same problem but I took the blue things off and reset my unit and it went to 12 hr clock and Fahrenheit. For me the Fahrenheit was the two prong thing labeled with the number 3 next to it. That's what the instructions mean by separating the control unit (blue thing is the control unit) from the wall mounted terminal (2 prong gold things with numbers.)

Brand new dryer threw braker twice, then no heat and timer stopped working. Electrician tightened connections on wires to dryer settings dial, had heat for one load, then same as before. Replacement dryer...

might want to check your dryer outlet. If the terminals are loose in there it could cause you problems. If your dryer plug is a 4 prong you might be loosing one of your 220v legs due to a short . As the dryer runs the wires and connections will heat up and expand , if there is a faulty wire or connection then it may loose connection after a load. could be quite dangerous and a very possible fire risk so i would check it out ASAP . if the outlet is old they sell for about $20 at you local home depot or lowes home improvement. for a 3 prong plug you need to hook up the black and white wires on the brass screws and the copper ground wire to the green screw. in a 4 prong application you hook up the black and red wires to the brass screws, the whit wire t the silver screw and the copper ground wire to the green screw .

If your new dryer is supposed to be a 4 prong plug and you have it with a 3 prong cord then you will run in to issues . The difference being a 4 prong electric dryer is a dual voltage unit where it needs both 220v and 115v to operate correctly, where a 3 prong dryer only has 220v and the earth ground. if your not familiar or comfortable with electricity please call a qualified electrician to come hand handle the work. if not done correctly it can cause fires or possible electrocution

Our dryer had a 3 prong plug in and we need to go to a 4 prong plug in. What wires go where?

The difference between the 3 prong and the 4 prong, is that in the 4 prong, the ground strap is being eliminated and replaced with a grounding wire. I am attaching a photo for reference. Note how the ground strap is under the center wire in the 3 prong and it is not under the wire, but is replaced by the green wire on the 4 prong. Confusing? Just look at the pic and I think you will see what I am talking about. Hope this helped and best wishes.

I bought a used dryer and went to change the plug in to a 4 prong went to plug it in and saw a spark dryer still not working what did I do wrong?I think I did it right, red wire white,and green and black...

The following link explains how to correctly install a 4 prong power cord (US Standard Electric Code) to your appliance:

The main difference between a 3 and 4 prong configuration is the way the Neutral (White) and Ground (Green) wires are installed. In a 4-prong configuration these two wires are independent of each other. If you left the grounding ******** the terminal block (effectively grounding the neutral wire), or wired it incorrectly, you may have damaged the dryer.

Read through the link provided and double check your installation. If you're lucky, you may have just tripped a breaker at the distribution panel, or blown a fuse inside the dryer.

If you need further assistance, please post back with your brand name and model number so I can determine how your dryer is configured.
