Remove the window unit and dissasemble,and clean it out,careful not to bend the fins on the condense and evaporator,but clean them out,and the inside of the unit also,then see what happens,if the problem persist,then find the probe on the evaporator and move it away from the evaporator until the compressor stays on longer.

When set to heat it blows out cool air.


Chances are your portable unit is a reverse cycle unit...If so, the leaving air temp in heating mode is not usually much warmer than room temp with 85 degrees F just about the maximum under PERFECT design conditions. A small portable in a large cold room may only be discharging 75 degree air, which is going to feel cold.

If your unit is NOT a reverse cycle unit, the heating source (probably electric resistance) is either not coming on at all or a portion of it is not coming on due to a defective element, burnt wire or a control issue.

when temperture is droping its a good indication it fuctioning properlt but when the refrigerator doesent go down to the desired temt of 37 you may have to clean the coils in back of the refrigerator this can be done easily as it worked for me you can use a aircompresor to blow any heavy dust the unit has acummilated or you can use a soft brisle brush even a tooth brush is good in hard to reach areas.

Freezer is at 0 degrees and my fridge is at 60 degrees


Keep 3 to 5 degree temp setting. And check defrost cycling is properly done. Due to frosting formed behind the freezer could restrict the function freezer fan which throw freeze air to refrigerant compartment. Unplug fridge till defrosting all frosting, and then plug it again. Thanks.

I have a 18000btu LG mini split heat pump installed about 1 year ago in vacation home. In heat mode the unit cycles on and off when room temp is within 2-3 degrees of set point. Cycle on time varies...


Hello.I think they are on to something with shortcycling on temp sensor.I think it should be sampling the return air instead of (inside coils ?).A 2*f dead band use to be built in (factory installed) to thermostats to prevent on/off, but not sure in this case.Try a new sensor location(return air) and see if anything changes.

Need to adjust oven temperature on a Croley gas range


you shouldnt need to adjust the burners for a temp problem.
the control has a built in calibration setting and it should be described in your owners manual.
if you dont have the manual, then try to set the oven temp to max, 550, and then hold the bake button in for 10 to 30 seconds. after that it should beep and show you a 2 digit number like 00. that is the calibration mode, then you can adjust it up or down +/- 35 degrees. try to make a small adjustment first like 10 degrees and see how it bakes.
if it takes too long to bake, then use + degrees, if it is burning things then lower -10 degrees.
hope that helps you.

Odd operation


This unit is a sanitizer, not a full fledged dishwasher. It is designed for restaurants and bars where the primary use is washing glassware. The behavior you describe is normal for this model. The manual can be found at the following link:
