How long does the heat plate stay on after brewing?

It depends on your brewer. Most will stay on as long as power is applied. IE; the Bunn pour over brewers are always on as these are office machines that always have coffee on around the clock. The only way to turn them off is to unplug them (or on/off switch)
* Check your manual for the options of the main heating plate. Most brands will have a separate switch for each 'side' warmer plate. Turn them on or off as needed. Note; try not to leave a brewed coffee pot on heat longer than 45 mins. Transfer brewed coffee to an 'Air pump" pot or similar thermos decanter.
* Larger brewers (1 gal and up) don't use warmers and directly brew into a decanter. These decanters are replaced with each brew and moved to the serving location. Some of the larger decanters have built in warmers using warmer power stations.
* Most (older) home brewers stay on as long as power is applied or On/off brew switch is on.
* Some of the newer (last 5 years) have auto shut off. But you must check your model and manual if it has this function which may require the customer to set it up for auto shut off option.
* Final, check with your MFR or coffee vendor. Especially if your equipment is on loan from a vendor. Have the vendor check your brewer and maintenance. They should advise you of the proper brewing methods for this brewer.

My blower motor does not work how can I chech for the problem

Hi, first check fuse. Then use a 12 volts test light to see if power is getting to the blower. Turn the key on, turn the switch on, take the connector off the blower, and connect the test light to the connector. If there is power, replace the blower. If no power there, next access the resistor as follows and inspect it for heat damage:

  1. Remove the rear sight shield.
  2. Remove the fuse/relay block assembly and bracket.
  3. Disconnect the resistor module connector.
  4. Remove the retaining screws and remove the resistor module.

With the connector off the resistor, connect your test light clip to ground and probe the resistor connector terminals for power. If there is no power there with the key and switch on, the problem is the switch. That said, the switch can cause the resistor to fail; so if the resistor has heat damage, replace it as well.



To replace the switch,
  1. pry out the lower instrument panel trim plates and unsnap the air vent deflectors. Then remove the glove box and large trim plate.
  2. Remove the control panel retaining screws, pull the climate control panel out, label and disconnect all connections and cables, then remove.
Please let me know if you have questions, and thanks for using FixYa.

4 Plate stove (hob), when switching on one of the plates it keeps tripping all the power. I have replaced the switch however problem persists. Secondly remaining 3 plates only seem to reach a low...

I would suggest you replace the hotplate that keeps tripping the supply, this hopefully will solve the prob you are experiencing with the other plates.

What is a common problem associated with desktop computers?

Number 1.

Power Supply failure.

TOP problem.

Also a Power Supply failing, can emulate issues that seem software related.
Doubt that your computer professor will know this, however.

(Can also be a bad Power On switch. The diagnosis should include testing both the Power On switch, and the Power Supply, by bypassing the Power On switch.

This is done with a jumper wire on the Soft Power On wire, {PS_ON. Green in color}, to ANY Ground wire, (Black in color), in the ATX {20 or 24-pin} main power cable connector.

Example of 24-pin ATX main power cable, and it's respective connector,

Bypassing the Power On switch turns the Power Supply on?
Problem is a bad Power On switch.
Bypassing the Power On switch does Not turn the Power Supply on?
Problem is a bad Power Supply)

Number 2 most rated problem, is the computer is dirty inside, as well as the inside of the Power Supply.

Most users are seemingly not aware, that the inside of a computer should be cleaned on a regular basis as needed.

Many may be timid in cleaning the inside of their computer.

Computer unplugged from power, Anti-Static Precautions observed, a can or two of compressed air for computers, could easily eliminate this problem.

Heatsink for the Processor is coated with 'Gunk'?
The Processor overheats, and BIOS turns the Processor off.

Same thing with the fan used to cool the Processor.
Whether it is a fan mounted directly on top of the Heatsink, or a computer case fan pushing air through a plastic shroud to the Heatsink.

Power Supply, (SMPS), cooling components.
This is the internal fan mounted at the back of the Power Supply's case, and the Heatsink's used inside the Power Supply.

[Basic construction of a Heatsink, is a plate of metal with tall, thin fins protruding from it.

The plate of metal absorbs heat from whatever object it is placed against, (Via a thin layer of thermal paste), and the fins absorb the heat from the plate.

The fins then radiate the heat away.
If a fan is used in conjunction with a Heatsink, the flow of air from the fan helps to dissipate heat away from the fins.
(Such examples would be a Processor's heatsink, and the heatsink's used in a Power Supply)

Westinghouse silhouette frost free 522 fridge is not cooling properly top and bottom.freezer fan is still working,and the motor at the bottom in the back of fridge stay's constantly running and has done...

The heating element, located behind the back plate of the freezer, is probably not working. A failed heating element leads to a build up of ice around the evaporator coils in the rear of the freezer. If the back plate of the freezer is removed (ONLY DO THIS WITH THE APPLIANCE UNPLUGGED FROM THE POWER SUPPLY) and there is a large build up of ice around the evaporator coils then it's a fairly good indication that the heating element is not working. The heating element comes on periodically to defrost/de-ice the evaporator coils. Heating element is often activated by a small timer switch which turns the heater on for a set time every 24 hrs or so. Heating element may be open circuit or timer switch may not be operating. Most likely to be open circuit heating element.

Top plate does not get hot, bottom plate is ok

The element could have a very fine crack in it, not readily visible. You must use a voltmeter to test if the element is getting power when the switch is turned on. If it is getting power, then the element is bad. If no power, then test the switch to see if it is sending power when turned on.

FDD8 sandwich maker will not heat up

The purpose of the button is to shut off the power to the heating coil when there is no cooking plate in place. It appears by your tests that the button (switch) has failed. You can jumper around the switch to verify that this is the case. If the heating coil gets hot with the jumper in place, then you need to replace the switch (button). If it does not get hot, then either the heating coil has a bad connection to the wiring. the coil is actually bad and needs to be replaced or there is a break in the neutral circuit somewhere. Did you do a continuity check on the neutral side of the circuit? There should also be a thermostat (tempurature control) and a thermofuse in the circuit that you should also check for continuity.

Using a thermal pot

I also bought the thermal carafe; before I could hack the warming plate, my wife set the "Auto Off" feature to 1 minute, which shuts off the carafe heater. The settings are preserved unless you lose power for an extended period.

The warmer does still warm through the brewing cycle but it doesn't overheat the carafe (IMO.) Hope this helps.
