Try taking a can of compressed air and spray in the vents in the front and the back of the heater. The heater has a sensor that gets dusty and causes it to shutoff to prevent overheating.

The heater should function properly once the dust is blown off the sensor.

Good luck!

The self defrost mechanism is not working. The evaporator is getting blocked with ice, an insulator, and that affects freezer as well as refrig temps. When you unplug unit the ice melts and it will work till the ice block returns.

2001 Isuzu Trooper air conditioner stays cold as long as outside temp is below 70 degrees. will stay cold for long time idling start down road it will start blowing hot,turn it off for about 5 minutes...

Get the charge checked. It might be a little low which would cause the compressor's clutch to disengage. Also clean the condenser (located in front of the radiator, make sure it's not obstructed). A blocked condenser leads to high head pressure and then low capacity.

My defrost system is not working. How do you check the defrost timer and the thermostat disk ?

The defrost thermostat electrically closes when the temperature is below 40 degrees F and opens when it is above. You can check it with an ohmmeter and it should read close to zero ohms when the temperature is freezing and infinity when it senses temperature above 40 degrees F.

The defrost timer typically runs the compressor for 6 hours then turn off the compressor and powers the defrost heater from about 30-40 minutes then the compressor is powered once again. The timer typically fails be not advancing causing the refrigerator to either stay in defrost mode, or in cooling mode. To check, turn the cam until you hear a click. With the refrigerator plugged in, it should turn off the compressor and power the defrost heater for 30-40 minutes. If the compressor does not turn on after 40 minutes, then the timer is bad and needs to be replaced.

I have a Sony KP-57WV600 with a similar problem described by someone else on this site. The screen turns red and stays red within a minute of turning it on. If I turn it off and back on again, it's ok for...

I have the same set, I was able to get the set working doing what was suggested on the site I posted below. Unfortunately I have other problems now. These sets are notorious for having failing CRT's (Guns, Tubes). These adjustments "should" help you buy more time out of the set. Sony doesn't make the CRT for these TV's any longer. You can get refurbished ones for around 200.00. Keep in mind there are 3. It is not really worth it, not to mention the time it takes to do the adjustments on the new tubes. If the set won't stay on long enough to do the adjustment, back the appropriate color knob back slightly then try again. I hope this helps.

Heater turns on, but intermittenly

Turn the power to the furnace off and then back on and see if it resets. If not you may have a bad ignitor or dirty sensor.
Hope this helps.
