Question about Refrigerators

1 Answer

The unit runs for a few minutes and completely shuts down

Plug it in and turn the t-stat on. The fan inside operates as does the cooling components. After a few short minutes the unit shuts down (including the fan inside). Now it will get to temp but still it shuts down. I removed inside panel to veify fan operation and fan shut down. I have to turn the t-stat on and off a few times before it will re-start but the same episode occurs.Hmmmmmm ant thoughts?

    Hey Krazytech. There was a product info box I did fill out. It is a TUC 48 True. Curious, even if for some reason the comp. was cutting off should not the fan inside still be running. It should from just plugging it in? Also, where can one get a wiring diagram of such model. I was pleased to see that you had anwered the e-mail and I thank you...Tom...

At night its shuts down when the therm is satisfied,but trys to restart right away and when it does start it shuts down right away and just keeps doing this


The thermostat has a differential built into the temperature sensing operation. The differential is normally a degree or more. If the stat shuts down at 72 degrees it should not start the unit again until the temperature in the room reaches 73. If the AC runs and cools properly until it shuts down, I would check the thermostat. The AC can not restart immediately after it shuts off because the pressures in the system are too high at the compressor. It takes a few minutes for the pressures equalize allowing the compressor to start. If the stat tells the unit to start under high pressure, the compressor will shut down on overload. It will start and run after the pressure falls enough for the compressor motor to run.

Cooling fan staying on


I'm pretty sure the radiator fan on these is controlled by a thermostat and will therefore normally operate only when required hence coming on and turning off at will. It is also not unusual for the fan to remain on after turning the engine off. If you sit and wait a few minutes after turning off the engine the fan will shut down eventually.

Ac unit runs, inside blower shuts off after 2 mins, compressor continues to run, t-stat still calling for cool


My central AC unit decided to stop on the hottest day of the year. It would start and run normally for a few minutes and then the blower would shut off. After checking the breakers, thermostat and overflow shut off (did not have one) I saw something about a blower motor capacitor. This was easy to get to and replace and my last hope before waiting for someone to come fix it. The capacitor cost $4.04 with tax and had my AC working again. Needless to say I was beyond happy. I hope this can help others with a similar problem.

How do I make my honeywell thermostat turn off right away at desired temperature. it runs for about a minute after letting cold air in.


Hi, what causes the stat to continue to run is the heat anticipator setting in the stat. If you have gas heating, it could also be the setting on the fan limit switch. If it is shutting off, and takes about a minute this is pretty much the norm. Once its satisfied, the heat exchanger has to cool down and there is a time delay when this happens. Yes, the air will be cool, but just for a minute. You may have to set your stat a little higher to compensate for this delay. Yes, the fan will run after burner shuts down and it will then cycle down. If it runs and never shuts off, then I would say you have a real problem with the fan limit or relay. Try what I asked. There is not much you can do. The anticipator is a setting in the stat that is set at the factory. Its about 0.4. If you have your stat manual, it will tell you how to check it. Good luck,

When I plug the unit into power, the CPU fan runs very fast but no boot, and then when I press power on the fan slows down and the PC boots normally. It shuts down in about 30 minutes with no sign of...


Sounds like you are overheating. One way to tell if it's overheating is you say it will run for about 30 minutes then shuts down. When it shuts down try rebooting to see if the boots successfully. If it fails to boot successfully right after it shut down then you are probably overheating. If you wait awhile to let it cool down for 30 minutes or so and if you reboot and it does it successfully you definitely have a overheating problem. If I remember correctly all those compaq sr series have loud and fast running fans. Computers overheat because of three reasons for the most part: 1) A fan has stopped working. 2) The Thermal Paste on the CPU and Heat Sink has dried up or is not thick enough to keep the unit cool. 3) Dust has clogged the fan vents and inside the computer. Fortunately for you desktops don't have to be completely disassembled like laptops to get to the fan, CPU and heatsink. Just pop the case and you'll see the components attached to the motherboard

Hi,
The unit is probably low on freon and so it is running too cold....this trips the freeze stat and shuts down the compressor till it warms up
The unit will need to be recharged or replaced...

LG PTAC acting strange in heat mode


I believe the problem in lies in the dual stage heat mode setup on the thermostat, but the unit going into defrost does make the unit act kinda strange. Even more so than other types of equipment. I would suggest hiring a licensed HVAC service technician if the problem cannot be resolved by yourself.

Built in oven keeps shutting down for no known reason


there is an overheat stat and this is probably coming into operation.
check casing fan is operating - not the fan inside the oven - and check there is plenty of ventilation for the appliance

COMPRESSORS HAVE AN INTERNAL T-STAT TO PROTECT THE WINDINGS ... SOME THING IS CAUSING YOUR COMPRESSOR TO RUN "HOT" THIS WILL KICK "IN & OUT" THE COMPRESSOR DURING COLLING OPERATION AND HEAT MODE (IF IT IS A HEAT-PUMP). 1ST THING TO EASILY CHECK IS THE CONDENSOR "OUT-SIDE" COIL. (CLEN BOTH WHILE YOU ARE AT IT). THESE FANS PULL THE AIR IN AND A BLOW OUT THE COIL .... ALL THE DIRT WILL BE ON THE INSIDE. 2ND THING IS THE FAN ITSEL OVER HEATING AN TURNING "OFF" ON ITS OWN "BUILT-IN POTECTION T-STAT". THIS WILL GIVE YOU THE IRRATIC OPERATION YOU ARE DESCRIBEING. I TEND TO THINK IT IS YOUR FAN MOTOR ... EASY TEST. TURN "OFF" EVERYTHING BUT THE FAN. SET IT FOR MANUAL "RUN ALL THE TIME" POSITION. THE FAN SHOULD NOT KICK OFF !!! IF IT DOES YOU FOUND THE PROBLEM. IF IT DOES TURN OFF IT CAN BE A WEAK CAPACITOR. UNITS VARY ON WETHER THE CAPACITOR IS FOR COMPRESSOR/FAN OR HAS A SEPERATE CAPACITOR FOR EACH. CAPACITORS ARE NOT EXPENSIVE. HOPE THAT CAN NARROW YOUR PROBLEM DOWN
