The dial on this and many rerigerators does not really shut the unit "off"
I switched off the circuit breaker and will call for repair if needed.

Can't fined the proper setting for the freezer dial?


Almost all freezer controls are manufactured to control temperature to the proper temperature control if you rotate CCW , notice the position and then rotate CW, notice the position and then go the the mid position. If temperature is not maintaining the required temperature, you may need a new temperature control thermostat installed. Before you replace the thermostat, check to make sure you have not overloaded the freezer compartment and, If you have an external condensing coil, that it is lint/dust free. Often times people seldom clean the external condensing unit and causes the loss of freezer temperature control. It is important to keep the condensing coil clean because that is where the heat is rejected to the surrounding air. Hope this helps.

How to set temperature on a general electric


Copied from ehow.com

Instructions
    • 1 Open the fresh food compartment and locate the two temperature control dials. Each dial is labeled for the compartment that it controls.
    • 2 Rotate the dial to increase the temperature setting by one to lower the temperature of the compartment. Rotate the dial to decrease the temperature setting by one to raise the temperature of the compartment.
    • 3 Wait 12 hours to allow the temperature in the compartment to stabilize before increasing or decreasing the temperature further.

Electrolux freezer will not turn on automatically when termperature warms in compartment, controls don't appear to turn compressor on, any help would be appreciated?


Sounds like your thermostat is bad. You probably have to replace it and the sending unit also. Big job! Look for a manual at : http://www.servicemanuals.net

Temperature adjust frigidaire ffu2065fw2


Hello Ron Thacker - Often when the temperature is too cold, it is because the temperature control is set too cold/high. Turn the control to a warmer setting and allow several hours for the temperature to stabilize. If the unit does not stabilize within 24 hours, then it could possibly have a faulty thermostat or temperature control. I would personally reach out to an experienced tech that will be able to identify the precise reason.

I have a rooftop ac unit on my popup that was replaced two years ago. The unit works fine but I would like the fan to shut off when the compressor isn't running. Is there a switch for putting the fan...


Please describe your controls. Does it not have low fan, high fan, low cool, high cool on the dial at ceiling? If yes, low cool or high cool setting should shut it down when temperature is reached via thermostat dial.

How do you set the temperature


If you have an air conditioner with a temperature display, use the up or down arrows on the touch pad to change the temperature setting.

However, if you have an air conditioner with only a dial that goes from 1 to 8 (or whatever number), turn the dial up as high as it goes and put the fan speed on high. When the desired comfort level is reached, slowly turn the dial down until the compressor just shuts off. You will be able to hear when this happens.

If the temperature gets a bit too warm turn the dial up in small increments and wait an hour or so to see if your comfort level is reached.

Vornado heater doesn't work on high setting but only at low setting


Dust on the inside of the unit can cause the overload switch to shut many vornados down. Blowing the dust out of the unit with compressed air or a blower may help.

Another problem that causes vornados to stop working (light on - no heat no fan) is when one of the bearings starts to go bad in the unit. This causes the fan to be slower and less effective and the unit’s inability to move the heat away from the thermal overload switch again causes it to shut down.

Though you could remove the front and rear bearings and try to get replacements if it's even replaceable ... Once the bearing starts to go bad there is little that can be done ... HOWEVER, here is one solution to get more life out of the unit.

First, use a blower to blow all the dust out of the unit.
Then, because it is typically the front bearing that goes bad first, lay the vornado on it’s back (so the unit would be blowing air up toward the ceiling), this will relieve the front bearing somewhat and rely more on the rear bearing which tends to last longer.

The vornados I’ve had are all thermistor units ... that is, they don’t just turn on and off when the set temp is reached but in fact slow themselves down (both heat and fan) to keep some level of air circulation in the room. This is a good thing by the way.
There are usually two toggle switches .... one is a heat switch - usually Low & High .... the other is the thermistor switch (this sometimes is labeled “fan”) - usually Auto & High.

Once the unit is on its back ... Now, change the settings as follows:
Turn the Heat switch to LOW
Turn the Fan switch to HIGH
Turn the dial (with the temperature in degrees on it) to the lowest setting - which is somewhere around 60’ish.

Now turn the unit on and it should stay working.
Three things that could cause it to turn back off ...
You turn the Fan switch back to Auto.
You turn the Heat switch back to High
You turn the temperature selection dial too high ... though, you can cautiously turn the dial up a few degrees at a time ... the unit will start shutting down again when you set the temp too high ... then just dial it back down ... unplug for a couple minutes, then turn back on.

Stove to hot burns everything


This is a simple fix as long as the oven is heating properly and the only problem is that the temp seems higher than what the temperature control knob indicates...

Purchase an inexpensive oven thermometer from the hardware store and place it in the center of the oven. Set the temperature control knob to 350 degrees F.

Check the temperature indicated on the thermometer in the oven after 20 minutes. If it's not within 5 degrees of 350, you'll need to adjust the oven's temperature control.

Turn the oven off.

Pull off the temperature control knob. You can usually pull it off by hand, pry it off with a thin screwdriver, or slide a piece of cord up behind it and pull.

Note which kind of temperature control knob you have. There are two types: The first has a screw in the shaft of the knob; the second has an adjustment dial on the back of the knob.

Adjust the temperature with the first type by turning the screw in the shaft with a screwdriver. Turn it clockwise to lower the temperature; turn it counterclockwise to raise the temperature. Turn the screw just a little bit in the appropriate direction.

Adjust the temperature with the second type of knob by turning the dial on the back of the knob. (This dial is held in place with a screw or a clip that will need to be removed.) Raise the temperature setting by turning the dial counterclockwise; lower it by turning the dial clockwise. The notches are typically in 5 or 10-degree increments.

Test the oven temperature again.

Repeat until you're in the right temperature range.

Good Luck!

No Heat!


Sometimes too much dust around the heating elements can cause the heater to switch off to prevent a fire. Check for dust build up first. You can try using a can of compressed air that can be found at many electronic stores.
