Chick, you may want to take a look at 'Solution 1' on this FixYa thread for the part number you're looking for.
Not sure if you're having the same issue I was with my Skybox (unit stopped getting cold, compressor would attempt to click on for 8-10 seconds, then click off), but I just followed steps from the video krause28 provided on 'Solution 9' of this FixYa thread and I'm up and running.
Just completed it today and it's working now, so I don't have any long-term results yet, but hopefully that does it.
Good luck! -TD

Hello Thayden,

I understand that the Refrigerator compressor is not working on your unit. There are three possibilities of why the compressor is not working, the compressor is bad, the starter is bad, or the capacitor is bad.

To check the starter you will need to do the following (most common): Refer to picture at the bottom of the post
1. Unplug the unit
2. On the side of your compressor there is a cover this is the starter relay cover.
3. Remove the cover
4. Remove the wires
5. Remove the starter (top piece stuck on two rods)
6. Check if bad (shack it if you hear a noise/knocking it is bad and will not allow compressor to start)
7. Replace it and the bottom one the over load.
8. Reinstall in reverse

The Run Capacitor (uncommon that they go bad but possible)
1. The little black or silver box that two wires run to from the starter
2. Check to see if contacts or unit is burnt.

The Compressor
1. If you replace the above items and the compressor is not running the the problem is the compressor. This will take a licensed HVAC person to replace.

The above parts are inexpensive between $30-$50 at your local appliance parts store. There is a 50/50 chance that this will work and save you the cost of replacing the compressor or the whole refrigerator.

There is a starter relay located on the compressor itself (inside the little black box on
the side of the compressor) in back. You will need the model and serial number of the
fridge to get the exact replacement. The model and serial are inside the fridge
on the left side of the fresh food compartment. This is a common failure.

They make a universal replacement also if this part is no longer available
but it is about the size of a red bull can and
requires a couple of wire ties to hold it in place to the chassis.

I hope this helps.

Sky remote codes for television model 42PF9631D/10


Hi

The correct code (or whether there is a code at all) depends on which version of the Sky remote you are using. The version number of the remote can be found on a sticker inside the battery compartment. If you have "RC1600/00" "Rev 4" or "Rev 6" on the sticker, then it's unlikely that it will work with your TV, but please read on as this isn't always true.

If you have a "Rev 8" remote then it's more likely to work with your TV, however, according to Sky, you will need to buy the new "Rev 9" Sky remote:

http://www.thedigiboxshop.com/sky-hd-remotes-sky-hd-remote.html

If buying one, be sure to check the button for the "Rev 9" version ( £0.85).

The actual code for your TV model is: 0718

I suggest you try the above code regardless of which version of Sky remote you have as Sky's information is not always accurate. You can also try these generic codes for Philips TVs:

0584, 0266, 0065, 0749, 1679, 0199, 0679

Again, try these with whichever version of the Sky remote you are using. There is a good chance that one of them will operate the volume and power functions on your TV. If none of the above codes work, then you will probably need to buy a Rev 9 remote.

Hope this helps. Please post back if you need further assistance.

Regards,
BElectric

Code problem


I got a tip for this and in this tip are codes you can TRY, now the sky universal remotes are senstive to tv codes so you need to try the manufacture codes if that does not work then you need to ditch the sky remote and get a remote that works with the sky box and the tv as a solution. IN my tip there are remote solutions as well, please do not shoot the messenger I am not sky or the manufacture I am just helping for free,

Fridge stop working


It sounds like you either have a bad start device (relay) or a sealed system problem.

The relay is a fairly inexpensive component (about $26.00). It attaches to the compressor and is easy to replace, you need to have the model number to look up the correct part.

If the relay does not fix the problem you have something in the sealed system most likely the compressor that has failed, this repair would cost around $500.00 on average.

I have charger the air condition an sitt will not get cold


I am the original owner of a 1998 Ford Escort SE wagon. The summer of 2008 I had problems with my A/C system - the first A/C problem on this vehicle. Be careful that you do not over-charge your R134-A system.
1. Check that the A/C Compressor Clutch engages and drives the compressor properly (via the
serpentine drive belt and proper engine idling speed, A/C switched "on" etc.). If the A/C
compressor clutch doesn't engage and drive the compressor you will not be able to charge the
system to the correct refrigerant capacity and operating pressures.
2. You should be familiar with and have the proper tools to test & troubleshoot your auto's A/C
system. Test gauge(s), hose & connector's will be needed.

If the A/C compressor clutch does not engage the compressor, then you will need to troubleshoot the electrical system and components related to your auto's A/C system. This can be time consuming and requires more skill and information (accurate electrical schematics, etc.).

My problem:
1. A/C clutch didn't energize and engage.
2. System slightly low on R134-A, about a 7 oz. charge was needed after all was taken care of.

Solutions:
1. Electrical problem in the electronic controls for the A/C system. The "Contant Contol Relay
Module" (Ford part no. 3S4Z-12B577-BA, RELAY) had to be replaced. Sometimes Ford calls
this "black box" unit an "Integrated Control Relay Module". The location of this "black box" on my vehicle is under the engine intake air filter housing - replacement cost (new) is about $230;
(used) about $35.
2. Charged the required amount of R134-A into the system via the proper test gauge and related
equipment.
Please note: I have experience and training in mechanical (including refrigeration systems) and electrical systems.
