Does a pilot flame burn strong enough. A blue flame will tell you if its string. If not then I suggest you clean the pilot oriface. Just figure out the pilot assembly and remove stucked carbon collected on the surface.

Was there a limit switch? Adjust this one if your heater is equipped with this.

Inspect the thermopile, is it close enough to the pilot flame? You might need to bend this closely to the pilot flame. But be very careful no to break it.

The last suggestion is to replace the wiring of the heater. Start first on the thermostat.

Please give this solution a 4 thumbs up and let me know which one works for you.

Yes it could be the thermostat and you should be able to bypass it.If you do this you will want to monitor it closely as you're thinking for safe operation. Thank you

Freezer is cold, but cold air is not circulating in refrigerator


Check freezer fan is working.If ice formed over freezer fan by working. It's a common problem due to irregular defrosting. Keep freezer setting temp at 5 degree. And check defrost timer, thermostat,heater are working properly.
Turn timer with small tip screw driver to shut off fridge. If not shut off, replace timer. Turn counter clockwise defrost thermostat. If fridge not shuts off replace defrost thermostat.Check heater by join the 2 wires in the defrost thermostat. And after 1 minute, unplug power and keep your arm on heater. If it's warm heater is o.k. Otherwise, replace heater.
Once heater starts work at regular interval controlled by thermostat and timer, defrost will be good and effective cooling will also be in fridge compartment.

Why are there 6 hour 8 hour an 10 hour timers to defrost a self defrosting refrigerator


Good day,
The decision as what the time interval of a timer should be is determined by engineers and field tests.
There is more to the timer than interval. Timers are usually listed as 8 hours 21 minutes, 8 hours 30 minutes ect. The minutes is used to designate the time the control stays in defrost.
A general rule is if the interval is longer, the minutes in the defrost cycle is extended to compensate.
Other factors come into play such as the wattage of the defrost heaters and the defrost thermostat temperature.

The trend today, with timers is to extend the interval to make the machine more energy efficient.

There is never an issue to defrost more often then the original, but it will run the heaters more often, and cause increased operating cost and shortened heater life.
The short and long of it is you can use a 6 hour timer in any machine if the timer motor wiring is the same and the duration is long enough, but with the costs listed above.

Freezer on my hotpoint refrigde is freezing up while the other side is warming up,have already replaced the defost timer 4 weeks ago.


Good day,
New parts can fail, but to test your timer, turn the shaft on the timer clockwise until the machine shuts off. Leave it like that. The timer can be many different time cycles, so just wait up thru 45 minutes.
It should turn the machine back on. If so, the timer is O.K.
There are 2 other parts to the defrost system. The main heater/heaters, and the defrost limit thermostat.

If one heater system, it will be mounted on the bottom of the evaporator coil, behind the rear panel in the freezer section.
If it's a two heater model, there will be one heater on the bottom, and the second half way up.

You will need an ohm meter to test them. They should not exceed 35 ohms. If they read infinity (no resistance) then replace.

The last part is a defrost thermostat. It is a round about an inch in diameter mounted on the top of the coil.
It should read zero ohms resistance, but can only be tested if the machine has been running and the thermostat no warmer than 20 degrees.

If the heater/heaters are bad, replace them but also replace the limit thermostat as a package.
If the limit thermostat is the only bad part, replace it only.

No instructions need to know how to operate


The Nikon MC-EU1 Remote Cord is an accessory available for the Nikon COOLPIX 880/885/990/995 4300/4500/5000/5400/5700/8700 cameras. The MC-EU1 Remote Cord is 80 cm long and allows the camera to be fired remotely like a cable release for a film-based camera.

The MC-EU1 Remote Cord's main function is to prevent camera shake. As well as the shutter release function, the MC-EU1 has the following functions.
1. operate the camera's zoom remotely,
2. advance or return images in the playback mode,
3. Controlling interval photography, automatically fire the cameras over a given interval.
Note this is the only Nikon remote cord available NIKON COOLPIX cameras and is only compatible with the cameras listed.

The Nikon MC-EU1 remote cord has two Interval modes, A and B

In Interval Mode A: the first photograph is taken at the start; and subsequent photographs taken at the specified time intervals, thereafter.

In Interval Mode B: the first photograph is not taken until the specified time interval has passed and subsequent photographs taken at the specified time intervals.

These modes can be selected by pressing the MODE button. The device cycles through settings in the order, Remote Mode, Interval Mode A, and Interval Mode B. When the Remote Mode is selected, the LCD panel displays Remote; when Interval Mode A is selected, Interval appears together with the letter A and Interval Mode B is indicated by Interval and the letter B.


The interval Modes, allow you to take photographs one after the other at a selected interval, which can be set in increments of one second to any value from two minutes to twenty-four hours. Interval modes are only available when the camera is in recording mode and cannot be used when the camera is in playback mode.

Setting the Interval

1. Setting the camera to recording mode and the remote cord to Interval Mode A or B, the interval setting will be shown in the remote cord LCD display. Items currently selected for editing will flash. Each time the selection (SEL.) button is pressed, the item selected will change as shown below.


Select the desired time by altering the settings (second [S], minute [M], or hour [H]) one at a time. While the item is flashing, press the down button to decrease the time set, or the up button to increase the time set. The value displayed will change by one each time either button is pressed.

2. After adjusting settings, press the selection button until the display is no longer flashing.

Starting Interval Mode Photography

• Half-pressing the remote shutter-release button has the same effect as half-pressing the shutter-release button on the camera, readying the camera to take a photograph. If the interval is set to less than two minutes when the shutter-release button is half-pressed, the interval display will flash. Choose an interval of two minutes or more.

• Full-pressing the remote shutter-release button has the same effect as full-pressing the shutter-release button on the camera, starting interval mode photography.

• When the camera enters interval mode, it will either take a picture and then begin the count to the next photograph (Interval Mode A), or begin the count to the first photograph (Interval Mode B). The Interval indicator in the LCD display will flash while interval mode is in effect.

Ending Interval Mode Photography

• Half-pressing the remote cord shutter-release button while an interval mode is in progress stops the interval photography.

• Photography will also stop should you run out of available space on the compact flash card; In this case, the number of exposures remaining displayed in the LCD panel will be 000.



The MC-EU1 has a feature that when the zoom button is pressed twice in rapid succesion, the camera will start zooming until this function is cancelled by pushing the button a third time. If this function is not cancelled, no other function is possible with the MC-EU1. If the MC-EU1 does not respond as expected please ensure you have not activated the zoom function.

Fan keeps running.


Some programmable thermostats have a circulate feature. This feature will allow your fan to run approx. 20 minutes per hour. This will insure better circulation, a better balanced temperature throughout the home & better air quality do to more air filtration. Read your thermostat manual to see if your thermostat has this feature and how to turn it off if needed. Another possibility would be on an older furnace with a fan limit control. If the temperature settings are set to low on the fan limit (or if the control is malfunctioning) you could experience a fan that runs a lot even if the thermostat is off.

Another question.


if the elements (black coil) of the defrost heater looks damaged? yes , need to be replaced , the thermostat is actually an electric timer that by certain amount of time will heat the element that goes around the freezer to keep it from getting frost, so their the same . AJ
