You are not alone. I have just typed the answer to at least 9 others with the same proble. It could be ice on the fan unit. Clear out the fridge. Remove the shelves and that leaves the units at the rear. Remove the light difuser. 2 screws and then the electric connections. Remove same. The lower unit has 4 screws two under covers that are east to pull away. again pull unit away breaking the ice seal. Electric connections again to remove. Ps. they fit only one way when replacing. Defrost the fridge and the fan unit with a hairdryer or similar. Clear away some of the insulation from the fan drain and put it back together. Good luck. Paul.

How do you read the temperature of engine. Thanks

There are several methods. You can use the dash gauge but it is not accurate. The other ways are to use an infrared thermometer, an OBD reader, or manual gauge in the coolant

Hotpoint ice diamond RFA52 P freezer ok fridge not cold enough, this is not a frost free and there are no vents in fridge or feezer?

Good day, please check at the back, at the bottom where the compressor is located for the pencil dryer(as in photo). Get a nice firm grip on it just be careful and feel the temp if it's cold or one side is hot and the other side cold the dryer is block. Otherwise feel the thickest pipe running into the compressor it should be cold if the fridge has been running for a while and the thin copper pipe existing the compressor should be hot. If the thin pipe is freezing up with a thick layer of ice and the dryer as some med-temp then there's a gas leak. If the thin copper pipe is very hot and the dryer has no temp then there's a blockage but if the thin copper pipe feels med-temp and the thick copper pipe more or less the same but a bit cooler the compressor is not pumping also feel if the compressor is running. If dryer as a warmth temp and the thin copper pipe is hot and the thick one very cold(when tipping your finger on your tongue and pressing it against the pipe your finger should stick a bit) if all checks out then it's the thermostat switching the compressor off at the rong temp.

I have a 2006 expedition 5.4 the temp gauge stays on cold whats wrong?

check your coolant. the temp is the water temp. Your radiator is out of water? you`ll burn out your water pump. Also check to see if your radiator fans are running constantly.

Temperature gauge cold then back to normal

You have to make sure the thermostat is working properly and is the correct one. Idle the vehicle for about 20 minutes and then feel the upper radiator hose. It should be hot to the touch. Drive the vehicle and when the temp gauge falls to 'cold' stop and feel it again. If it is much cooler to the touch than before the thermostat is defective or wrong.

2001 temp gage f250 turbo Deisel does not work replaced senser still dosnt work 2 wire rectangle plug . does peg hot when termanals at plug are shorted

It sounds to me like the gauge is working correctly. You probably have an engine that is running cold. I think I would try replacing the thermostat. Also make sure your coolant level is correct. The gauge will not work correctly if it is low.

Temp gauge on 1994 mercedes c220 stopped working could it be fuse or what

Well, "Or What" would be the correct answer based on the choices given. Please read this article about fuses: Where's The Fuse?

You most likely have a problem with the Coolant Temperature Sensor. There are a couple of temp sensors. The one with the single green wire is the one for the gauge. If you disconnect the wire from the sensor, the gauge should read COLD. If you take a paper clip or small screwdriver and ground the green wire, the gauge should read HOT. If this works, then replace the sending unit. If the gauge stays COLD even when the wire is grounded, Then you need to check for an open circuit in the green wire between the sending unit (Sensor) and the insrument cluster. If the gauge reads HOT even with the sending unit unplugged, then check the green wire for a short to ground between the instrument cluster and the sending unit. If there is no problem with the wire - Not open or grounded, then the gauge itself is bad.

Temp gauge stay on cold.

Switch ig. on, ground the sender unit wire for about 3 seconds see if the temp. gauge moves, if so change sender unit, if not then it is a faulty gauge reader.

No heat

Sounds like you have a clogged heater core. Sometimes heater cores can be flushed, but more times than not, it has to be replaced. If you've replaced the thermostat and your lower radiator hose is always cold, chances are it is the heater core. Hope this helps! Have a great day!
