Yes, unhook the vent to the back run the dryer if it heats better then either replace the venting or clean it out... hint use a leaf blower to blow that line out....... lint blockage or cloggage in the vent will reduce dryin times and yes possibly start fire... when it is on go outside to wear it vents and see or feel if it is blowin outside... hope this helps

Frigidaire microwave model ffmv164lsa constant beeping, with little symbol to the top left hand side of the clock displaying with the beep.

Hopefully no one sprayed a liquid cleaner directly onto or near the keypad...

From page 23 of the owner's manual:

"Wipe the microwave oven inside and out with a soft cloth and and warm (not hot) mild detergent solution. Then rinse and wipe completely dry."

"Clean the outside surface of the microwave with soap and a clean damp cloth. Dry with a clean soft cloth. To prevent damage to the operating parts of the oven, do not let water seep into any vents or openings."

If there is moisture damage, it may dry out by itself if you leave it overnight with the door open. If not, the warranty would be voided and you'd have to arrange for out of warranty service.

If there is no moisture damage, and it failed not due to outside forces, then you should contact the manufacturer to arrange warranty service.

What does error code E65 mean on dryer.. does not dry clothes well

Hello Becky;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service appliance technician.

E65 = High limit thermostat trip count too high.

In other words, you probably have a restricted air flow problem. Your blower will shut down if your plugged up with lint.

In the back of your dryer is a hot air distribution manifold. At the bottom of the manifold is a small round connection. This is generally where the dyer air flow is blocked. There are only a few screws holding it on. Un plug your unit, remove the hot air distribution manifold, Clean the manifold and around the blower wheel. Turn the wheel by hand to ensure it is not stuck and free.

If this is not the problem, get back to me and we will talk about the high temperature thermostat.

This is a second hand freezer purchase. When starting it for the first time, it cooled rather quickly inside but the sides and top became very hot to touch and we unplugged it. Is this a dangerous problem?...

Usually the frame getting hot is a sign that either the condenser grill is dirty or blocked or not getting enough air flow around it; or the condenser fan is not working or maybe even the compressor being low on freon.

I would suggest you start with a thorough cleaning, then check the fan and make sure it is working.

Since you said it cooled down quickly, I wouldn't think it was the compressor freon level. More likely dirty condenser grill or where you put it. I have might on 4" x 4" to get it off the ground for better air flow and ease of cleaning. It must work because I have had it since 1983 and never had to do more than clean the grill on it.

Frigidaire dishwasher will not dry the dishes. Even on heated dry they come out soaking wet0 hot, but wet.

Sorry, but I must start at the beginning. Is the "heat dry" switch on. If so is the unit a 220 volt or a 110 volt? You can tell by the plug end, if it plugs into a regular outlet type than it'a a 110 volt . If it has a special plug outlet (large black or large gray) then it'a 220 volt.If it is indeed a 220 volt go to the main house electrical box and try to locate the dishwasher breakers. swithch it, or them off and on. Then try your unit again. If it's a 110 volt then you've got internal control malfunctions of some sort. I'm not a Frigidaire certified techy, But I'm sure if you hop on the phone to the service dept. someone will hand you a solution in seconds after you descibe "exactly" what is going wrong.Thank You ,very much, Dana

LGE59777S Not drying

There is a little sensor that tells the dryer when to heat and when not to heat. that sensor is bad. If you take the back of the dryer off you will see it. It is about the size of a half dollar and has 2 wires that plug into it. While you have it apart make sure that the dryer vent on the back of the dryer is not plugged with lint. Major cause for fires in dryers.

Accidentally washed v176

You have a fair chance the sim is OK, so you can try that in another phone fronm the same Telco (Or an unlocked phone). Pretty much anything will do, from an older model to a pay as you go handset.

DO NOT turn the phone on until it's thoroughly dry. This can take nearly a week. Stick it near a warm source (but not hot!) to help accelerate it. If you can't live without a phone that long, then see above. :-)

Also your batter will be on its way out already, with shorter battery life.

All the red dots mean is that your phone is no longer under warranty. The dots will not turn back white when it dries.

Good luck!
