What I would do is take it to the work bench. Remove the case. Remove the cover on top of the compressor and check the compressor overload for signs of wear. Bypass it and see if the compressor stays on (testing purposes only). Do not leave it that way. Replace the overload if the ac stays going. Clean the coils.

Flashing snowflake


The flashing snowflake means it is in the cooling mode, but is waiting for itself to 'time out' after a call for cooling. It should be about a 5 minute delay then should come on automatically. At that poing, the flashing snowflake becomes steady.

Try it one more time and set the timer on your smart-phone to ten minutes before you touch it again. If that time elapses and no cooling and it is still flashing there's possibly a problem in the thermostat that will necissitate replacement.

Mitsubishi ac keeps on turning itself off


If the compressor overheats, the clixon circuit will shut off the power to the motor to prevent damage. Then when it cools it will close the circuit and the compressor will again run to only shut down again.
The suction line going to the compressor should be cold - the cold gas returning to unit cools the hermetically sealed motor. If that line is hot you may be low on refrigerant.

Model GHD30 dehumidifier-runs for a few minutes then shuts off. Will start again after a few minutes then shut off again, and so on. Does not seem to be "dehumifying" when operating.


As I have told many questioners, There are 5 basic, but solvable reason for what you described. Please pay particular attention to numbers 1 & 2..

1. The humidity extraction level is set to HIGH. Lower it to 32-35%. If your unit does not have an
LED screen, turn the control to Maximum.

2. Air intake filter is dirty or clogged. Turn unit OFF, & Unplug the
Unit, before removing to inspect & clean it, if necessary. If washed,
allow filter to completely dry before reinstalling. DO NOT operate
the unit without the filter.

3. Obstructed air flow. Maintain a minimum of 12 to 18" of clear air
space around the entire unit.

4. Cooling coils are dirty and need to be cleaned. Use warm water & dish washing liquid to clean
the coils. Rinse and wipe dry. Apply a light coating of WD40 to the coils.

5. Ambient air temperature at floor level is between 40 - 60 degrees.
dehumidifiers do not work well between those temperatures
(Unless, you have a Low Temp Unit). This applies mainly to
where the air temperature at floor level is colder than at shoulder
in basement applications level. Raising the unit up off the floor,
onto a sturdy table, counter top, etc, that can handle the weight
of the unit, plus a full tank of water, will usually resolve this
problem.

If none of the above solves the problem, it may be a case of the compressor needs to be recharged with refrigerant gas or that the humidity condenser sensor has failed. These things usually occur in units that are 5 years old or older. It's rare in a unit younger than that. But, it can happen.

Hope this helped you to troubleshoot and solve the problem.

I have a unit that is cutting off and on every 5 minutes, what could cause this? It is running 55 suction and 235 head pressure and working and cooling but every 5 minutes it cuts off and comes back on in...


If this is a R-22 unit the unit is cycling on the low pressure switch. They are usually set to open at 60 psig. Pressure below 55 psig the indoor coil will freeze up so they set the pressure switch to open at 60 psig + - 3 or 4 psig. You either need to clean the coil, filter, make sure the blower is running and at the proper speed or you are low on R-22.

Kenmore refrigerator stopped cooling 6 days ago and started working again 2 days later but not very cold.Stopped cooling again 2 days ago.Now it is frosted up in the back of the freezer,What could cause...


There are several things that could be causing this. Your compressor could be going bad. Your freon is low. Think of your refrigerator as a air conditioner. Pull it out and vacuum all the dust from your filters, make sure the water is draining properly and not clogged up. Is your unit still under warranty. How old is your unit. Try this. Unplug the unit for about 5-10 minutes, this will give it enough time for the compressor to cool down. Plug it back in and listen for the compressor to kick on. That's the big black round thing at the bottom in the back of your refrigerator. Listen to it and what the sound is, does it click when it turns on, does it shudder when it turns on. Let me know the sound. By unplugging the unit and doing this the compressor should kick on in 1-3 minutes after plugging it back in. If your unit is over 8 years old you might consider another one. Check out craigslist, as you can get some great deals. Let me know if I can help you further.

Shuts itself off mid cooking cycle -- as if unplugged; then after 5 minutes or so turns itself back on as if it was just plugged in (forgetting all previous settings)


If you just put the fan blade back on, it will almost certainly fall off again.

The best bet is to slightly rough up the contact area of the shaft with sandpaper and use a little super glue to hold the blade assembly on the shaft, and let it set a few minutes before using it.

I always recommend that you use the hood vent exhaust fan when cooking on the stove top to keep heat, steam, and grease out of the controls.

There should be a "mini-manual" (tech sheet) hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting, testing, and locating components.

At our Web site, we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number from the tag on the oven here.

Feel free to contact me directly (and please remind me of your full model number from the tag on the unit) for more information & help.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

Heater shuts off as soon as the room is warm


I take it once the temp is set to 71, and the ambient temp reaches 68 or so, it shuts off, never to come on again?

If that is true the thermostat in the unit is damaged, worn out or in need or replacement, but try a couple tricks.

First, if there are access panels to clean, clean it per the manual, it could be that a dirty filter or air inlet is confusing the thermostat.

Next, unplug the unit for at least 5 minutes, try it again.

Next set the unit on it's highest temp and blower setting, let it rip for 20 minutes, shut it down, unplug and remain unplugged for 5 minutes.

Next set the unit at 71 HIGH MODE.

see if we have a mode switch problem or thermostat if it works on high mode, it is not the thermostat, but I imagine it is, but I am curious as to if it once goes off, it never again comes back on?

No Power


It appears that the power supply is starting to fail. It is also possible that there is another board in the set that is over-loading the supply.

The nature of the fault indicates the strong possibility that there are some parts that have become thermo sensitive. This is not a reset problem going by your description. Unplugging the set, is allowing the boards to cool down, and therefore they will work for a while until the thermo sensitive parts heat up again.
