SOURCE: Refrigerator not cooling

You will have to let it run for a while, then take the interior back cover off the freezer side to look at the frost pattern on the coils. There should be a nice even white frost on them all, if there is a solid block of ice the defrost cycle isn't working and if there is not much frost but a few inches then you likely have a sealed system leak (no more refrigerant). There can be other issues like the compressor start device not working or the temp control failed, etc. so we will have to go back and forth to do more troubleshooting. Repost with more info when you have it.

SOURCE: cooler wont cool below 48 degrees.

Keep a thermometer handy. (adjust temperature control knob accordingly)
Periodically monitor temperatures inside your cooler. (adjust as necessary)
Keep the refrigerator door closed as much as possible to avoid temperature fluctuations

The temperature of the refrigerator compartment is
controlled by adjusting/setting the thermostat control
knob, located on the ceiling of the refrigerator
cabinet.
To start the refrigerator, and achieve maximum
cooling quickly;
• Turn the temperature control knob (using a coin
or screwdriver) clockwise to the furthest
(maximum) setting on the darker blue section of
the graduated control dial.
• Allow the refrigerator to run at this setting for 3~4
hours.
• When maximum cooling is achieved, turn back
the temperature control knob setting to the 2:00
o'clock position on the graduated blue control
dial.
• Correct cooling temperature is a key factor to
consider in storing and dispensing draught beer.
• Optimum temperature for serving draught beer is
between 34ºF ~ 38ºF.(1ºC ~ 3ºC)
• To maintain temperatures ranging between
34ºF ~ 38ºF.(1ºC ~ 3ºC) We recommend the
thermostat knob be positioned at the "2:00
o'clock" setting on the graduated blue control dial.
• To turn off the refrigerator, (no cooling) rotate the
control knob to the "0" position.

SOURCE: Kenmore Model # 596.735032.. Fridge is cool, Freezer is not freezing

After pulling the fridge away from the wall and removing the lower right hand panel I noticed that the compressor (big round black ball with copper tubing) was not turning on. I also noticed that there was a ticking or popping sound comming from it every couple of minutes or so. After doing some research online in numerouse forums I decided to try and replace the overheat relay that is attached to the compressor. It only took maybie five minutes at most to change it and the compressor is now working with nice cold air comming into the fridge and freezer. Hope this helps someone else with the same problem.

I had the same problem with my sub zero. I took off the grill on the top and vacuumed the coil that has the fan in front of it. The problem has not happened since. I'ts worth a try.

My thermostat is set on 68 degrees and it shows room temperature is 68, but the furnace still kickson, Honeywell said it has a 1 degree difference. so what's the problem then?


Yes there is a one degree tolerance, in fact my heater just kicked on and it is set to 67 and the inside temperature reads 67. It is also a Honeywell.

WHY DOES MY FURNACE SHUT OFF BEFORE REACHING TEMP


Hi Demetrio
Furnaces turn on and off based on what they're told by your thermostat. The thermostat, in turn, will control the furnace based on:
  1. The temperature AT the thermostat.
  2. What the internal heat sensor thinks the temperature of the air is.
So, if your idea of 68 degrees is what the thermostat thinks is 71 degrees (thermostat reads three degrees high), then when the air by the thermostat gets to about 65 degrees (by your account), it'll think it's 68 degrees and shut the furnace off.

Also, if the thermostat is, say, near a source of local heat, like a lamp, a big piece of electronics, a fireplace, or that place that you habitually set down your coffee, then the air right next to the thermostat may be warmer than the rest of the room, and fool it into thinking it's at it's target.

The sensor is usually inside the housing for the thermostat. If it hasn't been dusted in a while, then it can be hard for air to get inside to affect the sensor, though this would generally cause it to lag on readouts and run the temperature higher than you wanted.

If you have a digital readout, and the system is saying , hey, target is 68, and the readout gets to 66 and the system cuts off the furnace.... my only other guess is that the unit may have features that are trying to prevent overshoot - i.e. by the time the temp at the thermostat actually gets to 68, most of the room is more like 73. That'd depend on your particular thermostat. At that point, you may want to call customer service with the manufacturer and tell them the issue. There may be ways to adjust the unit to get behavior closer to what you seek.

Good Luck!

Whdoes it mean of wake, return, sleep and leave on honeywell digital thermostat


I believe it means (I assume winter weather in my example):
1. Wake - This is the time you wake up and you would set the temperature at the time you want it then. So, your temperature throughout the night might have been set at 63, and if your "wake" time on the thermostat is set to 6:00 am and 68 degrees, then your system will automatically adjust the temperature setting to 68 degrees at 6:00 am.
2. Leave - This is the time that you would typically leave your house for work. You probably don't need to heat or cool your house that much during this time especially if no one will be there. So, let's say you leave for work at 8:00 am. You would set this time for 8:00 am and 60 degrees.
3. Return - This is the time you get off work. Let's say you get off at 5:00 pm. You would set this time for 5:00 pm and 65 degrees. Then the system will start warming up at 5:00 pm and will be warmer by the time you get home.
4 - Sleep - This is for when you go to bed. Following the example, let's say that you set your temperature while sleeping to 63 degrees at 10:00 pm. Then, the system adjusts at that time and will adjust again as soon as then next parameter is met, which at this point would be the wake time.

This is usually for a Mon - Fri schedule and then a separate one for the weekend.

Lower temperature will keep the room cooler. For efficiency sake, lower the temperature gradually to
68 degrees.

Sounds like the defrost heater has failed or the adaptive defrost control. First you will need to check the defrost heater for continuity. If it has none that is the problem and replace it. If that checks good replace the adaptive defrost control board. Here is a link that should help http://appliancehelponline.com/defrostheatervideo.html

I have a honeywell thermostat model#th6110d1005 and it wont go below 68 degrees how can i removed the lock


i just called customer service for the same problem. Push the fan button, which is the MIDDLE BUTTON of the 3 bottom buttons, and the UP ARROW button at the same time, you will see the number 1 on the left of the screen. Press the bottom right button until you see the number 28 on the left, 68 should be on the right. Press the DOWN ARROW until you get to the desired temp, it won't go lower than 50. Then press ok.

Refridgerator not cooling


That fan at the top has to remain on during cooling or you get the temps. you describe. To check this you need a voltage meter. Got to get to the fan and have to check if there is voltage 120v when it shuts off. If there is still voltage present when it shuts off then change the fan, if no volts when it shuts off then change the timer. need complete model cause this one may have an adapative timer.. i fixed one with the same problem last year.

How can you make your conditioner cool to 40 degrees


ACs are designed to cool down to about 68^F, don't think it has a chance of doing what you want w/o re-engineering the system which is not really an option.
