I don't know that you'll like the answer, but from the very little bit you mentioned it sounds like it would be cheaper to replace it than have it fixed. Although there are other potential issues (like an electronic part, which would still be a good percentage of the $300-400 cost of a new unit), you could be low on refrigerant. Two problems there: 1) the refrigerant isn't cheap, though the service call would probably cost more) and 2) the refrigerant leaked out somehow, wo that leak would have to be fixed too.
I start thinking about a new unit.

Why doesnt the refrigerator and freezer not get cold enough?


You need to check a few things -
1. settings for the temperature are not set too low. Not cold enough.
2 there is no leakage through the door seals.
3. there is not too much ice formed inside the freezer walls. Needs defrost.
4. the fridge is not overloaded with stuff - not enough capacity to cool things.
5. Not enough free space behind the fridge to allow air movement for coils to cool
Please provide more details of the problem if above not helping. For example model number, is the problem happening both in freezer and refrigerator settings. Get a fridge thermometer and monitor temperature in both sections. should be 4 deg C in fridge and -18 deg C in freezer after stable operation.

1992 pontiac bonniville dies & wont start , sets a while then starts like normal. doesnt matter cold or hot


When it doesn't start check for fuel pressure, spark and injector pulse. If you got access to a scanner that could read live data check if you get an RPM reference. Check and report your findings.

I live in a very small one room studio,and have a comfort aire window unit...air and heat.The heat works real well,but in the spring and summer,I would set the unit on the coldest setting.I can hear the...


Lets look at the output of the system first. Take your square footage of the area you are trying to condition and times it by 15. We try to get 15 Btu's per square foot of air conditioning. If your area is say 10 by 15, you have 150 square feet; times it by 15 = 2250 Btu unit is required. If you have a 5,000 Btu unit, it should be more than enough to cool the room. If this is correct, the problem may be because you have the unit set for Dry. In Dry mode, the compressor will cycle less frequently than if on Cool. If in fact the unit is on Cool, you may need to lower the temperature setting to fool the sensor from turning off the compressor prematurly. If you still can't cool the area, your unit has an issue with either refrigeration or air circulation and will need to be serviced.

My car was overheating so i took off the thermostat and replace a hose that was leaking but now car hasn't overheat yet b water comes out through reservoir tank what could be the problem now?


the water is getting to hot even though its not overheating because you need a thermostat to trap the water in the radiator to give the water a chance to cool down then the thermostat opens and the cold wanter enters the motor and the hot water in the motoer enters the rad. to cool down. with no thermostat, this doesnt happen it just circulates and warm up to the temp it warms up to and is at the same temp in motor and rad then to hot will come out the overflow, as a resualt, you will wind up losing antifreeze then wont have enough antifreeze in your engine then will damage your engine.Put a thermostat in and a water pump. fix it right or you will damage your car.

No cold air


There may be enough freon to make the compressor engage however not to make it cool down. Once the freon drops enough, the compressor will not turn on to prevent damage to the unit.
When you say it comes on are you saying the blower fan works or that the compressor is indeed engaging?

Fridge running constantly and ice maker wont work


sound like it is low on freon ,,,, if so it runs all the time trying to get cold enough to shut down and it wont make ice ,,,, 1st check to make sure the fan inside is blowing, make sure the temp in freezer part is atleast +5 or below if it hasn't cooled right front the start then thats why they got rid of it ,,,,, leaking freon and it cost to much to repair that problem / larry

Refrigerator in garage


Yes it is very possible that exactly what you are describing can be happening. Also try a thermometer frozen in a cup of water to get more accurate temps. Also 33 in the fridge is very normal for the cold control set on max and the heater installed. Let me know the temps in the frz with the thermometer sensing product temp not air temp which fluctuates often.

My Maytag front loading washer does not fully rinse cloths MAH8700A. I purchased this washer about 6 months ago. I usually wash small loads but have noticed it doesnt matter what size load. When first...


Is the drain path free-flowing? That is, does the water eject freely during spin/rinse? Maybe there's a restriction in the line, or it's too high above the washer.
