Hi.

If you are sure that the problem is temperature control, replace the control assembly. Before replacing control assembly I suggest checking the defrost system that is often causing poor cooling.

To start perform a complete defrost, allowing the unit to defrost overnight. This may temporarily fix problems related to defrost system and fix problems given by frozen damper fan.

If after defrosting the problem disappears to restart in few days or weeks, then it was not the temperature regulator but the defrost system. In that case test and eventually replace the thermostat located behind the freezer firewall.

Hello,

Before replacing the refrigerator's temperature controls, you should do some basic troubleshooting to make sure the problem stems from a defective control and not some other problem. The most obvious thing to check is that the refrigerator is plugged in and receiving power from the outlet. If it is running, but not cooling, it could be due to dirty condenser coils or a defective door seal. Once the coils are clean and the door seal has been checked, you can be pretty confident that the problem is the temperature controls.
There are usually two control knobs, one that controls the temperature of the freezer and one that controls the refrigerator. Although they appear to be independent controls, it is important to understand that the cold air comes solely from the freezer area into the refrigerator compartment. The freezer control determines how much cold air the condenser produces while the refrigerator control adjusts the flow of cold air from the freezer to the refrigerator compartment. If there is no cold air on either side, it is probably the freezer control that is at fault. The procedure to replace the control switch is the same for the refrigerator control and for the freezer control.

it is still a good idea to test the control mechanism before replacing it. You will need a multitester and possibly needle-nose pliers and a screwdriver for the testing. First, unplug the refrigerator so you don't get shocked. Then, remove the temperature control's dial and/or housing. The dial will just pull straight off, but the housing may have screws holding it in place. After removing the housing, just let it hang by its wires. There should be two wires attached to the control. Label them before disconnecting so it is easier to put back together. Remove the wires by pulling on the slip-on connectors, not the wires themselves. Needle-nose pliers may be needed to remove these connectors from the terminals, especially if the refrigerator is old.
Set the ohms setting on your multitester to X1 and attach one probe to each terminal. Turn the temperature control to off or to the warmest setting if there is no off position. The multitester should give you a reading of infinity if the control is on off and a reading of near infinity if there is no off position. Then turn the control to the coldest setting and retest. Now, the multitester should give you a reading of zero. If both of these tests are not passed, the control needs to be replaced.

Take care.

Hello, There should be a sensor in the air snorkel and if it is sprayed with a choke or brake cleaner it is probably unreliable. This part can be cleaned with Electronics spray. The sensor measures the incoming Air temperature and makes engine adjustments based on temperature.

You can get a free scan at Autozone, Advance, or Oreilys autoparts stores. There are some malfunctions which will not set a Code and yours is temperature sensitive, so the scanner will have to catch it at the right temperature.

Looking at the thresholds you have given, there are a few other possibilities. If you look at hard acceleration, manifold pressure drops and you are saying the engine runs smoother with less manifold pressure. Could be a bad MAP sensor. Then looking at temperatures above 75 degrees, pressure in the fuel tank increases and the Evaporative Emissions system must adjust to capture the gas vapors. If the Evaporator solenoid is misfiring you may be feeling it cut-out. You have replaced the fuel pressure regulator, but has the regulator been adjusted? Some systems use a Relay to help the pressure regulator buffer the constant changes in demand to the fuel pump. The Relay could be bad making it seem that the pressure regulator was bad when it actually was not.

Check with one of the above 3 autoparts places for info on this Relay and if your model has it. I hope my solution is very helpful and that your problem is a less expensive part.

Po128 is the code. What's the problem


Well, I can't give you any specific information regarding your vehicle because you forgot to mention what kind of vehicle you have. (This is kinda important if you really want some help figuring out what is wrong with your car)

The "Generic OBD" of code P0128 is "Coolant Temperature Below Thermostat Regulating Temperature"

The most likely cause is a stuck-open thermostat, however, I have also seen defective Engine Coolant Temperature (ECT) sensors also cause this code.

What is the use of fan thermostat controller and explain about it?


A thermostat is a device for regulating the temperature of a system so that the system's temperature is maintained near a desired setpoint temperature. The name is derived from the Greek words thermos "hot" and statos "a standing". The thermostat does this by switching heating or cooling devices on or off, or regulating the flow of a heat transfer fluid as needed, to maintain the correct temperature.

I have a Char-Broil Grill. My regulator started frosing over or turning white like a freon can would and so I changed the regulator and the new one is doing the same thing. I just replace the bottle...


This is normal under certain temperature and humidity conditions. The gas is expanding as it goes through the regulator and this causes cooling - that much is always the case. If you have had cool weather for a while, then the propane will be cold to start with. The expanding gas will cool the regulator to a temperature significantly cooler than the temperature of the gas in the tank. If it's humid outside, then condensation is going to form and if the regulator is below 32 F, you will get frost. Nothing to worry about, it has no impact on the performance of the regulator. This effect will diminish when the temperature of the propane goes up (after a warm day) and as the level of propane in the tank is reduced (so the pressure drop across the regulator will be less.)

Bottom freezer can't regulate the temperture


Hi, your bottom freezer not regulating it's temperature means you have a faulty thermostat which actually regulates the temperature of the freezer.
You have to replace the thermostat to solve the problem.

Coffee maker did not heat


An electric coffee maker has an electric flow-through brewing water heater with a heating resistor controlled by a temperature dependent regulating switch responsive to the temperature of the heating resistor, and a warming plate heated by the heating resistor for maintaining the prepared coffee at a desired drinking temperature. Apparatus for adjustably prolonging the interruption of heating current 2 to 5 times the normal cooling time of the regulating switch is connected in circuit with the heating resistor and the regulating switch, and a manually actuated small quantity control means connects the heating current interruption prolonging apparatus in circuit with the heating resistor and the regulating switch. The prolonging apparatus may be an adjustable auxiliary electric heater in parallel with the regulating switch and thermally coupled thereto or an adjustable timer in series with the heating resistor and regulation switch and triggered by the opening of the regulating switch

Alarm beeping, temperature not registering - have switched on fast freeze but still not dropping temperature. Regulator set to 1-2. Cannot hear motor.


Hi,

There is a malfuctioning of the thermostat which takes care of the temperature drop or getting signals from the controller. Please replace the thermostat and the temperature should work as you want it through the regulator control.

Let us know if you need any clarification.

Thanks

Fagor oven will not regulate its temperature, once


From the symptoms you describe, I would say the oven thermostat is faulty, and in need of replacement.
This is the control you regulate the temoperature with.
Hope this helps.
