Question about Audio Players & Recorders

1 Answer

The whole unit switches off after about 30 minutes. I thought it could be heating up and cleaned the fan (externally), put it on 1/2 inch brackets to ensure air circulation, changed to a different electrical outlet checked the cord and plug etc. all to no avail.

If you suspect thermal issues maybe you could verify that the unit actually feels hot when it dies. If not, it's some other cause.

Is the now-clean fan working?

I'm sure the manual of this unnamed component might give some clues as well as what the proper physical clearance around the unit should be maintained.

My whole house fan has been having problems. The motor gets very hot and turns off. After cooling, it can work again (though I am not keeping it on!) The whole house fan is a Sears fan. The original...


Ada, I think you have already diagnosed the problem. It's the Leviton timer. For whatever reason, it can not handle the fan motor without over heating. The best indicator, was the melted hot wire. Perhaps the switch was defective from the start. I suspect the timer was rated for a ceiling fan and not a whole house fan.

Hope this helps you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

Does the exhaunst fan turn on automatically when we cook or warm food items in our Samsung Microwave -- SMH 9187W?


Some interesting reading on page 8 of the owner's manual:

"Boilovers cause smoking and greasy spillovers that may ignite and spread if the vent fan is operating.To minimize automatic fan operation, use adequate sized cookware and use high heat on surface units only when necessary."

And on page 20:

"If the temperature becomes too hot around the microwave oven, the fan in the vent hood will automatically turn on at the LEVEL 2 setting to cool the oven. The fan will automatically turn off when the oven has cooled down sufficiently. This is an automated process and cannot be turned off. The fan may stay on for 30 minutes or more after the cooktop and microwave controls are turned off. The Vent Fan will only operate in 1~4 levels modes while the microwave is working."

"Using the Vent delay off button
1. Press the Delay Off button once to turn the fan off after 1 minute.
2. Press the Delay Off button twice to turn the fan off after 3 minutes.
3. Press the Delay Off button three times to turn the fan off after 5 minutes.
4. Press the Delay Off button fiour times to turn the fan off after 10 minutes.
5. Press the Delay Off button five times to turn the fan off after 30 minutes."

If for some reason you don't have your owner's manual, you can still download it free here.

Does this have a fan attached to it or does the heat just stay around the unit. Does this have a thermostat or is it manually turn it on and off?

Is this in the garage or house?
1) Make sure no fans are operating when you do this.
An external fan can either **** the pilot off or blow it out.

2) Make sure if it has a thermostat that the sensing bulb located on the back is not picking up external
heat source.

3) If it has an external sensing bulb, put it in a bucket
of cold wtaer. Then try to light the pilot

Belt snapped last night think it was serpentine belt how much am i looking at to fix?


Depending on where you purchase the serpentine belt, and whether it's a budget or lifetime version, prices range from $18 to $33.

You can replace this belt yourself.

The belt goes around, and under various pulleys on your engine. There is ONE pulley that puts tension on this belt. There is a bracket, or 'arm', that this tensioner pulley is attached to. One simply takes a 1/2 inch breaker bar, and inserts it into a 1/2 inch square hole in that bracket.
You then pull the bracket over to one side with the breaker bar, (The direction will be pulling the tensioner pulley away from the serpentine belt), and slip the serpentine belt off of the pulleys.
The belt diagram of how the belt is placed around the pulleys, should be on the fan shroud support, or under the hood.

Keeps shutting off


I have a LASKO 5565 model fan and had a similiar problem. Cleaned the whole unit, thinking it was tripping the safety breakers, and it still would turn on and off. The control console was completely unusable. So then I thought that it was maybe the squat switch located on the bottom of the unit. I quickly deduced that not to be the problem and continued following the wiring. Just above the fan there is a 1/2"X1/2" thermostat. Upon touching it I almost burned myself. For some reason the unit was grounding here and cause the thermostat to heat up and shut the unit off. I took the thermostat out of the equation and the unit works great.

CAUTION: If you pursue this action you must understand that you no longer have a thermostat and the unit is now simply just a heater. It will either be on at full blast heat or it will be off. Good luck.

Nutone WA6500 range hood fan motor noisy


We have the same product, 18 months in use and the very noisy motor has finally seized up. I contacted the manufacturer and was advised that I need a new motor, motor mounting bracket and fan rotor. The agent was not able to quote me a price for the parts but stated that even though my 1-year warranty had expired, if I faxed them a copy of the original sales reciept they could possibly send me the parts for free under the original warranty agreement. I've done as they asked but haven't received a reply as yet. After reading about all the problems with this product I'm tempted to dump the whole unit and try to find another manufacturer that has a reliable and QUIET range hood.
