If the outside temp. is lower than 32 deg. F it is normal for the outdoor unit to build up ice but not safe for the motor compressor. Because the safe outdoor temp. in heating is 5 to 64 deg. F but don't worry it has safety device to stop the operation.

Heater will not activate until outside temp. is above 40 degrees


If you have a heat pump the compressor is locked out below that temp. If you have a dual fuel - hp/gas, the gas burners should come on as would the electric heaters if you have electric heat as backup.

Heat pump not keeping up to set temperature on thermostat but never drops below 63 degrees whens its 20 degrees outside.


It may be getting low on refrigerant due to a small leak. I'd have it serviced soon. When running at less than peak efficiency it will much more often switch on the heat strips and they are not cheap to operate.

Fridge not cold enough


The higher the number the colder the temp is supposed to be.

In order to prevent the formation of bacteria and other such organisms to affect food the way it does, the ideal temperature range of refrigerators has been mentioned here. Before we look at these settings, it is important to know the format in which temperatures are represented within a refrigerator. Commonly, you will notice a dial representing the figures 1-5 or 1-9 in the refrigerator, and a dial representing the letters A-E in the freezer. The ideal setting is usually in the middle of such figures.

If the dial is in such a format in your refrigerator, try a setting at 3 if the range is 1-5, and at 4 if the range is 1-9. For the freezer, a setting at C is suitable.

The ideal temperature in the refrigerator ranges between 34 degrees F - 38 degrees F or 1 degrees C - 3 degrees C. So that foods such as vegetables and fruits remain fresh and crisp, the temperature may be set around 38 degrees F or 3 degrees C.
The ideal temperature in the freezer ranges around 0 degrees F (-18 degrees C) or lower.

Need to know coolant temp operating range for 1988 Seville


Entirely possible and in range. Depends on outside temps and type of driving. The radiator is colled by electric cooling fans, controlled by temp sensors. Fans should come on automatically when a/c is turned on

Appliaance shuts off at low temperatures


Most refrigerators cycle on and off based on the fresh foods temp. If the ambient temp is 10C and you have it set for 4C, the unit does not have to run much to satisfy the temperature control, and the temp in the freezer section will warm to + C range. (likewise, if the ambient drops to -C range, it won't mater if you set the fresh food section to +4C, it won't heat the air, and the fresh food section will eventually reach the -C ambient temp.) The only solution is to move the appliance to a warmer location or heat the room it is in. This is the only Fix-Ya for your refrigerator.

Oven won't reach proper temperature and hold


If the element glows its ok , if you have replaced the sensor with a new one it can only be the control board. in some cases you can adjust the temp. through the control , it should list directions to do so in the manual. Good luck

Heat pump auxiliary heat does not turn on


Turn up your outside thermostat in the outside unit.
You should have about 3 degrees difference in one stage to the next. So I would change the thermosat with one that has three stages of heat.

Kenmore Side by Side Refrigerator, freezer doesn't work, refrigerator works


Unless specifically made for use in a garage most units won't work properly. The owners manual should say what the temp range for proper operation is (usually 55F is the low range). This is because the refrigerator section doesn't need to be "cooling" to maintain 37F if the temps on the outside are below 55F. These things are made to work in a 70F room and will not work properly if under 55F. Stupid thing thinks it's cold enough so it will never turn on, the refer section will stay cold/cool due to outside temps but since the compressor never runs the freezer will just be the same temp as the refer section (at best). Sorry, but in order for a freezer or refrigerator to work in an unheated space it must have the temp control device controling the freezer section NOT the fresh food section. In other words, that model will not work in a garage unless the temps are above 55F always.
