Open Question

Brivis he5 fails to maintain room temp once reached, after temp reached reset lights up and will not reignite until temp drops to 15-16 degs. Have replaced condincate fan capicitor, ceramic igniter, programmable wall thermostate,checked fuses. Am at a loss plumer thought it was thermostate, now thinks it's motherboard.

SOURCE: freezer works ok.refrigerator temp varies from 39 deg.to 60 deg.

check to see if there is frost in the back of the freezer if so you have a defrost prob..

SOURCE: Rinnai 1004 - Temp on thermostat reads 10 deg cooler than actual, keeps running

The location of the sensor needs to be higher but my yellow wire would only pull out a couple of inches.
Turn off power to unit and remove front panel. Two screws near top/sides. Top of panel pulls out (unplug wire connector to indicator lights) and lifts off bottom tangs. Now you will see a coil of yellow wire inside unit. Remove the wire tie and you'll have enough yellow wire to locate the sensor well above the heater.

SOURCE: alpha boiler - wireless programmer failing

it sounds like the problem may be in the boiler and not the controller itself. Do you kno which is are the two wores that are the r-w for the thermostat take and purt them together and see if the boiler stays on or shuts off like it does with the thermostat. If it does then replace the reciever. If it doesn't then you have another problem. Good Luck

SOURCE: Microwave oven blowing 20 amp ceramic fuse

Chances are if the varistor fails, it fails drastically causing a short circuit across the supply. It will sit across the supply (it will look like a thick ceramic capacitor) and you can check for continuity after isolating that at one end. If it shows low resistance (it should show almost open circuit with a Digital meter), replace it.

It need not be the culprit. If you are familiar working with High voltage circuits ( they are lethal inside a microwave ovens as the current capability is high here), you can discharge the doubler capacitor and isolate the high voltage diode to check for shorts in the HT area.

SOURCE: pilot shutting off once temp reached

Hello. It is hard to say exactly what is going on, but here it goes. First, are you sure it is getting to temp? use a thermometer. if so, then, you could have a weak hi limit, tripping at 350 or 375, instead of 450. Do you have to reset it? or let it cool down? or does it light right back up. If not, then you probably have a weak thermopile, not producing the correct millivoltage ( less than half of a AAA battery ), it normally is 450 to 750 millivolts.You can test this with a multimeter, one side to the thick copper wire coming from the pilot, and the other at one of the hi-limit wires, DC voltage please. Grease could be on/in any of the aforementioned components, causing a poor connection, with less than half an AAA battery, it does not take much to cause a problem. A dirty pilot, or low gas pressure could also cause a problem.

Hope that helped, and thank you.

How do you program this heater


temp setting
1. press the temp/timer button untill the temp icon blinks
2 use up and down arrows to set temp.3 the temperture icon will stop blinking and the current room temperture will appear after desired temp. is set.
4 the heat will turn off shortly after the desiredtemp. is reached and the temp. ndisplay will blink.
5 the heater will turn back on when room temperture drops below the set temp.

timer : auto -off press the temp/time button untill timer icon blinks. the hour display will apear. the auto off icon will also appear.

2. use up and down arrow buttons to set the heater operation time between 1 and 10 hours. this function will activate once the timer icon stops blinking.
3. the heater will automaticly turn off when time runs out.

set temperture first so heater will cycle on and off till shut down time reached

Remove the window unit and dissasemble,and clean it out,careful not to bend the fins on the condense and evaporator,but clean them out,and the inside of the unit also,then see what happens,if the problem persist,then find the probe on the evaporator and move it away from the evaporator until the compressor stays on longer.

The oven does not stay an even temperature and there is a gas smell. The broiler works fine! Only the oven....


By the parts diagram, it looks like you have a glow coil type igniter . Generally when the oven wont keep temperature, the igniter is failing to reignite the burner. The burner comes on till it reaches temp then shuts off until the temp falls below a certain temp then comes back on until it reaches temp again and so on and so forth. Most of the time the igniter has a very small crack in it and doesn't begin to fail until it cycles several times. I would check the igniter and the safety valves and coils on the valve

My ac will not stay on when its at a certain temperture or auto. only if its in on position


this is correct because if you set it to certin temp. when it reaches that temp. it will shut down to prevent over cooling when the temp in the room goes up a preset amount 2-5 deg.(preset by manafatuer) the unit should go back on to drop the temp. to your set temp. Auto works the same way, where just on will cool to the temp the system can cool efficently.

2000 jeep radiator fan


Hi micro0711, the fan (which I assume is electric) works off of 3 corresponding pieces of equipment: the rad,the thermostat and the coolant temp sensor so if you have a 180 deg thermostat the coolant would circulate through the engine and generate heat once the coolant temp reaches approx 180 deg the thermostat opens the coolant temp sensor signals the fan to engage removing the heat from the radiator cooling surface maintaining a safe operating temp. If you find your temp is rising check to be certain there is power to the fan and also that the thermostsat is operating,hope this helps good luck

Brivis Heater help


These Brivis guys and girls are a rip-off. They are only out to take your money. Then can easily ask you to do just as mentioned above. And pronto all works in 3 minutes to be precise.
It is just the power supply reset required due to a fult being detected, either caused by a very low setting on the controller less than 16 degs. or a higher than 25 degs. setting causing overheating when the damper outlets are mostly closed.
So, put the power supply to heater off first, reset the heater panel, press the button again to shaow EMS on and then set the heater to the required temp. after turning on to the heating mode. That simple! That is if it is the error 71 HI.
