What is working properly?
Are you able to put your hand at the discharge hose and read gallons per hour?

Most likely you either have air in the system or a blockage

A blockage can occur at the front of the motor from skimming or direct suction
you would be surprised what sneaks through the pre filter screens
Undo the hose in front of the motor first
there is a plastic housing screen that usually gets clogged

If it is air drain the hoses and the filter cartridge housing
now blast out your cartridge with a strong garden hose
Put it all back together
now open all bleeders except the one on the bottom of the cartridge housing
open dishcharge hose side first
when water starts coming out of the bleeders then open the inlet hose

Turn on pump for 30 seconds and then close the bleeders this should do it

I have a Cenco bcd 60 12/240v fridge/freezer. It runs but temp goes up and down. Exterior temp is constant at 20c. It will not reach -18 or stay frozen any minus temp setting. but runs fine if set...

It is my experience from what get from your description, it is one of two things. Low air flow in evaporator and/or low charge.
Low air flow can be caused by a few things. Things to check
1. evaporator fan is working
2. good air flow into and out of evaporator vents
3. Shelves are not over stuffed with product. Air has to circulate in order to freeze items properly and same for cooling in the fresh food section.
If these all check satisfactory, The next thing to check is the condenser coils for excessive air blockage and condensing fan working. A dirty condensing coil can cause everything you describe.
If these all check out ok, then and only then would I check the charge. The compressor discharge temperature during normal operation in most homes will have a surface temp aroung 140 degrees or higher. If the compressor discharge (high pressure) is not hot to touch, (careful if overcharged or dirty condenser the discharge pipe can cause burns.) then the unit is undercharged and needs refrigerant added. Also, if refrigerant is low, a leak search needs to be performed to locate potential leaks.
Hope this helps

this might sound crazy but the 'no flow' light doesnt always mean there is no flow. if the system has a problem (low salt, low flow etc) it will stop chlorine production. to indicate that there is no production, the no flow light illuminates. check the salt level (min4000 ppm) if that checks ok, then be sure that the water is warmer than 65 degrees. make sure that the cell is clean and that the connections are clean/secure

2004 Chevy Tahoe not idling properly, and dies. Heater also blows cold when at a low rpm.

If you have looked up the code and it tells you the vehicle is running lean and you have changed the O2 sensors, you may have a clogged fuel filter or worst yet a fuel pump that is going bad and not providing enough pressure. Take it to a repair shop and ask them to test the pressure. It is an inexpensive test that will only take a couple of minutes. If the pressure is low try replacing the filter first as it is much cheaper than replacing the fuel pump that is in the gas tank.

Check engine lght on and 2 codes p0103 and p0112

P0103 HYUNDAI - Mass or Volume Air Flow Circuit High InputPossible causes- Dirty mass air flow sensor
- Dirty mass air filter
- Mass air flow sensor harness is open or shorted
- Mass air flow sensor electrical circuit poor connection
- Intake air leaks
- Faulty mass air flow sensor
Tech notesBefore replacing the mass air flow sensor, try replacing the air filter and cleaning the air flow sensor with low compress air or mass air flow sensor cleaner. Reset code and drive vehicle. If the code comes back, it may be necessary to replaced the mass air flow sensor.
P0112 HYUNDAI - Intake Air Temperature Sensor 1 Circuit Low InputPossible causes- Dirty air filter
- Intake air temperature (IAT) sensor harness is open or shorted
- Intake air temperature (IAT) sensor electrical circuit poor connection
- Faulty intake air temperature sensor
When is the code detected?An excessively low voltage from the sensor is sent to ECM.

I keep getting code 90 (low water flow) on my Intex Salt Water System for Above Pools. I imagine that it could be a result of my water filter not being powerful enough. Could be the problem. I want to be...

If your pool has the skimmer system there is a hose coming from the bottom of the skimmer to the wall of the pool which would be your suction to the pump. Disconnect the hose clamp from the suction port that goes through the wall of the pool remove the hose then unscrew the blue adapter on the inside of the pool there you will find a strainer / screen. Whatever gets pass the basket in the skimmer get's plugged up in that screen causing the pump to starve for water causing the LOW FLOW sensor to go off on the Saltwater pump.

Let me know if this helps any.

I have a 2004 great lakes hot tub with a balboa controler. My hot tub heats up fine when the pump runs on high but the temp light never comes on when the pump runs in low.

check to see that the flow switch is working properly, it may not have enough flow on low speed to allow the heater to turn on. Make sure your filter/s is/are clean. If you have a pressure switch instead of a flow switch, it may need to be adjusted or replaced.
