Samsung dryer is showing TO, what does it mean?


Dryer thermister is open. Thermister Open. Thermisters will change in resistance with temperature changes. The control relies on reading from this thermister so it can make a determination of whether or not to turn the heat on. If it is open then the control don't know what the air temp is inside the dryer and therefore it shuts down and declares an error. The thermister is mounted on the blower where it gets the air coming out of the drum on the way out the back. The fuse is right next to it. I bet you would like a service manual wouldn't you?

Note: dryer error codes are on page 32.

Inconsistent cooling, no ice, noisy fan motor.


Hi,

Many times a freezer and/or refrigerator do not work right because of a dirty condenser coil...there are also many other things that can go wrong.



If you are hearing a clicking or buzzing then check out the last two tips.

If your refrigerator is running but warm, then...

Check out these tips that I wrote about that... it is a great place to start trouble shooting your unit...and something that you can do rather then calling a repair person to do a simple thing for you...

The fridge does not seem to be cold enough and the fan inside does not seem to be working - could this be the problem


On most refrigerators you get your cold air from the "freezer" compartment. If the freezer fan motor is inoperable, this will prevent the proper amount of cold air to flow into the "fresh food" compartment. Make certain that the fan motor does not work with the freezer button within the door frame activated. On some models, with the door open, the fan motor will not operate. Open the freezer door and activate the freezer button for several seconds to determine whether the fan is properly working or not. If not, contact an appliance service company.

Simpson fridge stopped working. The freezer still goes but not the fridge part. At the time the power fuse box overloaded (around the same time as the fridge died). Not sure if that was connected but power...


Hi,

If this is a standard upright fridge (freezer at top), then the usual principle applies: cold air drops.

A small fan (situated between freezer & fridge) should be functioning, which forces cold air from the freezer, down into the refridgerator.

I would recommend you first determine if this small fan is operating (this is the noise you would normally hear, when you open the freezer door) and if not, then replace the fan.

If fan is working, then I would suspect a faulty thermister which would require a technician.

With repairs of older devices, it's always best to obtain quotes first, as often the cost of repair could well amount to up to 40% of the price of a new one.

Good luck...

I have an older Amana SRDE25TW which doesn?t freeze/cool properly


It was probably the faulty thermistor all the time.

Temp inside fridge is 46degrees. Besides


46 degrees is still below normal room temperature so it seems that the unit is cooling....you do not mention whether it is 46 degrees in both the freezer and the food compartments.....if the freezer is still cold...say below freezing or near zero but it is hot (46) in the other part of the refrigerator then there are probably 2 possibilities:
1. The small fan inside the freezer may be stuck and not spinning...they seem to go bad or at least stop spinning regularly on many freezer compartments. For most designs the fan must be running to circulate the cold air inside the freezer and also send some of the cold air over to the normal food compartment. When these fans shaft get stuck they will often emit a high pitched noise if they are able to turn at all. Of course if not turning t all then there is no sound. Determine if the fan is working....if not you will probably need to replace it and problem fixed. If the fan is working then look at the design of the plastic leavers etc inside the unit that control baffles between the freezer and food compartments. It may be a simple matter of sliding one of these controls to make it colder where the food is stored. some of them also have an electronic control for this so look for that knob and turn it to colder...not the actual refrigerator thermostat but one that controls what they call "balance" between the freezer and food areas.
