L2050 kubota tractor after engine gets hot if i shutdown it will not crank over after cool down starts back up.


Nest time it is hot and does not start, check for spark. U could have a thermal issue where the ignition coil gets hot and stops working till it cools down.

U mentioned glow plugs - is this a diesel powered unit? Check for proper oil level in unit? Oil pump? Poor lubrication will cause an engine to expand when hot and not restart till it cools down.

The igniter glow bar gets bright and hot on the first burn in the drying cycle, however on subsequent urns it doesn't glow bright or long enough to ignite. What's up?


The ignitor is either going to be good or bad. If it fires off it is fine and if it is shutting down then the flame sensor is also working. That tells me your coils are weak and old.

Here is how it works and why I believe you need to get new coils: When the dryer is cool first thing in the morning the initial start up the fuse and control besidethemobilian_2632.jpg
it allow power to the gas assembly, the flame detector/sensor allows power to get to the ignitor and it begins to glow. 1800 degrees is what that baby puts out and at that point the flame sensor bi-metal bends and shuts down the ignitor. The holding coil and secondary coil will then have enough power partially because the ignitor is off and partially because the ignitor is now acting as a thermocouple. If for some reason the gas did not ignite then the ignitor would cool down and shut off the gas. themobilian_2633.jpg
When the temp inside the drum gets to 160f that control beside the fuse shuts off the gas assembly, IF it don't shut down the gas then that fuse melts and shuts down the power to the gas assembly but it doe not shut down the dryer. The fuse is good though because you are getting power to the gas assembly AND the gas assembly is shutting down at 160f. The dryer keeps a tumbling around till the temp in the drum drops to 105f at that time the dryer wants another blast of hot air, trouble is the coils have gotten hot now, the ignitor is doing its thang, the flame sensor is doing its thang, the control is doing its thang. The only thing that ain't happening now is the coils ain't allowing gas to come out. Replace the coils and party on! More here

KEEPS GOIN OFF AFTER THE FAN MAKE NOISES, SHUTTS OFF VERY OFTEN AND GETS VERY HOT


Need the make & model & O.S. to help you. You can install this software any way to control the fan. Set the fan to always on and see if it cools down. If the fan is noisy it should be replaced and clean inside of laptop. Dust will clog fan and overheat laptop. Over heat causing the shut down condition. This is a great toll to keep Dell laptop's cool. Let me know if it works.

Whirlpool wgd5300sq0 dryer get hot then cools down. I replaced the thermal fuse as this was the cause the last time this problem was obsereved, however this time the problem has not be resolved. If I shut...


Sounds like the thermal cut-off is kicking in. Try checking the vent to make sure its not blocked and causing it to overheat, this would cause the cool down (the other candidate is a bad fuse, but if you fixed that already I would leave that for last)

When it gets hot it stop and then start again when cooled down


This problem is usually caused from restrictions in the vent hose and the unit getting to hot causing the limit control to shut down until it cools. Check your filter, your dryer vent line for obstructions and the outside for pieces of lint plugging it and slowing the air flow. I have found lint build up in the line, at the base of the dryer where the exhaust line connects, and in the exhaust mounted on the outside wall.

98 honda shutts off and will not start until cooled off


you say the engine shuts down when it gets hot if it runs rough before doing so it could be the coolant temperature sensor allowing the engine to  overfuel  if the engine cuts out in a couple of seconds but sounds smooth it could be the fuel pump , if it cuts out instantly its electrical.
