    How do I take the machine apart to check for a lose wire? Is it easy? I would not want to just replace the condenser without first checking if there is a loose wire as you suggest might be possible.

    you will have to get your self a stroll driver to strolls out the strolls
    then trace the wire has have send earlier

    thank you.

My Whynter UIM-155 ice maker used to make alot of ice quickly. Now, it does not make very much ice and it takes a long time? What should I do?

look at the condenser coli to see if it is dirty if so clean it. Dirty coil will cause it longer to make ice. also make sure nothing is blocking the condenser return.

The air con won't work. How do I fix it, everything seems to be set up fine. I thought all I had to do was turn it on and the air con would turn on, but it won't

Check that the master switch on the external condenser fan housing is turned on, it is a sliding button like switch.

My dryer won't work! The light works and the lint


I believe that everything else is fine rather it is the thermal fuse that is located inside the rear panel to the exhaust duct that is bad and should be replaced. If you want you can test this fuse for continuity and if it is bad then it should be replaced, as it cannot be reset. If the fuse is fine then it can be due to the control board that is bad and should be replaced. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

Will they work in Australia where we have 240 volts?

Yes if this UNIT has the specified mains voltage set for 240 volts then it must work in Australia.
If you have to bring up the voltage from a 120 volt supply then USE a STEP-UP transformer with a conversion factor of 120 volts in the primary to a 240 volt in the secondary.

The arc-13w/s was working fine for about 4 hours or so, and then it just stopped working. now it seems like there's no electricity going into the system at all.

Ours just did the same thing 6/28/2010. And then it wouldn't turn back on. Try draining the water tank. Plug is on the back at the bottom. Ours is running again!! I'd jiggled and sloshed the unit and it came back on briefly. After we drained it, it stayed on. FYI: We rolled our unit over to the top of the stairs so we could get a container under it without having to pick up the unit. Much luck to you!!

Whynter 13000 sno no power

Could be a lot of things - but I'm wondering if when you are checking the 'fuse at the plug-in,' are you actually checking the outlet for voltage?

I would check the outlet for voltage; i.e. plug in a hair dryer or something to the outlet and see if it (hair dryer) comes on. If it doesn't then I would check your breakers and see if you have a breaker tripped. In homes - you can usually go to your breaker panel (usually in the garage or a store room, i.e. pantry, hot water closet, sometimes in hallways behind doors) and find the breaker panel.

On a small unit like yours it would probably be a 15 or 20 amp single throw (like a light switch) breaker. If it's 'tripped' it can be in a position that resembles half on and half off, or it can look completely 'off.'

Remember - if it's a 'tripped breaker' - just re-setting the breaker might not solve the problem. There is usually a reason for a breaker tripping - although they do on occasion 'trip' for no reason.

In any event - if it's a tripped breaker - i would reset it and then if it happened again, either within a few minutes/or an hour - or within a day or two - then I would suspect something wrong with the unit and I would need more information, or you might need a qualified technician to trouble shoot the unit.

Note: if the breaker is tripped and when you reset it - it immediately 'pops back off.' Leave it off and call a tech - because you have a direct short and it will have to be trouble shooted.

good luck!

Hello Experts, I have a 2004 Murano. The AC works fine, but after an hour running on a long trip for instance, everything seems to work fine but very little air flows. Please help.

Check for clogged blower filter, water may be staying inside the evaporator unit, the condensation frezzes the condensator and littel air or no air flows thru it, check the a/c fans for the evaporator functionality.
