Question about Heating & Cooling

1 Answer

Every time I turn it on it initially starts warming up and then it starts cooling down to 16. I've set it on 32 to try and get it to go up. It went to 27 for the 1st time in months a couple of days ago but then started cooling down. I turn it off once it starts going down to 20. The machine is about 5 years old I think.

HI,
Your AC thermostat is the problem,it only controls the flow of heat to and from the system .It is the defective part.Since you say 5 years it must have worn out.Thermostat controls the Temperature level.Dust may also some time get collected over it.

Thank you.

Fridge temperature too hot won't go down with temperature controls


This looks like there is a problem with thermstat in the fridge. We had a fridge that would not cool and we found it to be the thermastat problem. You have to replace the thermstat on the fridge. Not 100% sure but a high possibility.

it may be that your fridge is now low on freon the techs now do not know what to do the best thing to do is to call the tech and ask them to test the compressor pressures and see if it is low on charge. unless you know how to take the lower back panel off (the one that is probably cardboard) and feel the lines on the compressor and see if it is really cold and really hot that means that it is cooling properly but if it feels a little warm cominv out of the cooling side and hot on the return side then you need more freon.

Hello, When I set my AC unit to "Heat" and turn it on, the air will come out warm, then after a few hours the air starts to come out cool. To make it warm again I need to set the...


It sounds like you have a heat pump. When you first turn on the system the heat strips will come on and produce warm heat (referred to as supplemental heat strips), as temperatures rise the heat strips will turn off and the "A" coil will just exchange heat to maintain temperature thus conserving energy. . Initially the temps will be around 125 degrees at the register, and drop down to about 105 after the strips turn off.

On some TXV controlled outdoor condensing units the Thermostatic Expansion Valve will stick in the cool position and require replacement this will cause this symptom. It takes several hours to do and requires a licensed technician to do as it involves recovery of refrigerants. I hope this helps

Temperature lowering problem.................


Are you referring to 16 degrees and 34 degrees?
If you are, it is not possible to lower the setting to 16 degrees, 32 degreees is freezing, so the evaperator coil would start to freeze up, and as the ice spreads across the coil............... Air can not flow through ice, so the air will stop blowing, till you shut the system down for a couple of hours, to allow the ice to melt.
This is the reason why these units are set with min. temp settings.
I hope this helps.
Sincerely,
Paul Gibson

32" 32lc7d after a few minutes, flickers, then goes dark.


There are no fans in this model but it looks like either the backlights in the screen are breaking down after they have warmed up or a problem in the inverter board, again part of the driver circuit breaking down after a period of time. They inverter boards can sometimes be replaced seperatly but usually come with a new screen which if the backlights are at fault then the screen would need to be replaced.

Refridgerator acting erratic


The refrigerator/freezer defrost system can be checked by manually initiating a defrost cycle. There
are two methods of initiating the ADC Test Mode.
First Test Method:
1. Turn the thermostat off for 15 seconds.
2. Turn the thermostat on for 5 seconds.
3. Turn the thermostat off for 15 seconds.
4. Turn the thermostat on for 5 seconds.
5. Turn the thermostat off for 15 seconds.
6. Turn the thermostat on for 5 seconds.
7. Turn the thermostat off.
In 3 to 8 seconds the ADC should turn on the defrost heater (with the bimetal closed). NOTE: The test mode will terminate when the bimetal opens. If the refrigerator/freezer is already in defrost, Test Mode can be terminated by unplugging the refrigerator/freezer from the wall outlet and waiting 30 seconds before plugging it back in. The refrigerator/freezer should immediately go into cooling mode if the thermostat is closed.
If this first test procedure fails to make the ADC initiate a defrost cycle, try the following procedure to make the ADC begin the Test Mode.

Hi there,

This can only be a bad soldered on the video module, its better to check for any bad soldered and for any fault on the resistor on the video output module.

Hope this initial info / idea helps.

Please Accept my solution if I solved the issue.

Opengl drivers needed &'' Q_strncpyz: NULL src '' error


Hi, had similar problem myself, the problems are either you don't have a sufficient graphics or video card or you don't have or are not up to date with OpenGL drivers. The trio 32/64 graphic card is not one that is most likely to run with this game, because i had one for my old machine and came up with exactly the same problem, i will give you OpenGL updates but my solution is get yourself a better graphics card for Quake III Arena

http://www.versiontracker.com/dyn/moreinfo/win/18800 - This is the site for the update, scroll until you see 'Download' should be under Additional Requierments

This is the minimum in Graphics cards that will run with Quake III
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
All 3dfx chips and higher
nVIDIA Riva 128 and 128ZX and higher
Matrox G200 & G400and higher
ATI Rage Pro & Rage128 and higher
nVIDIA Riva TNT and TNT2 and higher
Intel i740and higher
nVIDIA GeForce 256 and higher

Hope This Helps
