Question about True GDM-9 Beverage Cooler

1 Answer

The inside is hot

The inside of the cooler is blowing heat, all items are now close to hot not cold. The unit was serviced 2 months ago; the problem was that the vent was covered in dust or whatever, so they cleaned it with an air compressor. But now that is not the problem. All of our drinks are warm and the unit stays on.

A couple of consequences to a dirty condenser. First the compressor could have blown a valve. Second the cap tube and/or liquid line drier could have clogged - If the unit has R-134A this is more common than not.
Of course there is also the possiblity that the dirty condenser had little to do with the original service call and that the unit is low on refrigerant or has a faulty thermostat.

A/c putting out cold air. on passenger side warm air on driver side. Had it recharged 2 weeks ago. What would cause this problem?


Check the heater motor actuator, in the inside in about the center under the dash attached to the heater duct. The actuator is a small motor that opens and closes the door on the air unit to direct the hot or cold air. One of the doors is not closing from the heat side of the unit.

Haier Thermoelectric Wine Cooler


This wine cooler hasn't held temperature for months, even though during the winter my living room gets to 58 F at night. I've had it maybe a year.

I took the back off, and 2 of the 3 heat sinks felt cool, which means the thermoelectric pack was just conducting cold out of the cabinet in 2 of 3 cases. The third one felt slightly warm, as it should. I checked that the cool ones had 12 v to them, they did, so they should have been pumping heat out.

I put bowls of ice inside the unit, and when the temperatures got down to the set points, I heard relays click, so I figured the control unit was OK.

I removed one of the TEC modules that was cold on the outside, and taped up the hole with masking tape.

I unplugged the fan from the circuit board and unscrewed that fan assembly from the heat sink.

I then clipped the leads to the TEC unit, cut away the blobs of hot melt glue, and disassembled the cooling module. I took the TEC device and hooked it back up, making sure it had voltage to it. After awhile, both sides just felt slightly warm so I knew it was bad.

Got on line and ordered 4 (to have spares) TEC1-12703 coolers. I have thermal grease. When the parts come, I will re-assemble and should be good to go.

I don't know what blows the TEC devices, they should be very robust. Maybe Haier got a bad bunch of them, I read almost all bad reviews on these wine coolers.

After running for a few hours it gets hot and shuts down but runs fine every morning


Without more info I will have to give you several things to look at. Typically during the hot months rotary units experience temperature shut downs due to the following. Dirty oil coolers. Blowing them out with air my help some but ideally they need to be washed using a degreaser solution. Location. during the hot months poor air flow/ air removal may let heat from the compressor build up in or under the cover or room. This hot air gets drawn in by the compressor and raises the compressor temperature. The cycle continues until the compressor shuts down on high air temp. Maintenance. Poor maintenance on rotary screw compressors leads to shut downs on high temp, high air temps then play havoc on dryers which causes moisture in the air system. Maintenance items that need replacing regularly ( about 2000 hrs) oil filter, air filter, Depending on type of oil used change 2000 to 8000 hrs, seperator @ 8000 hrs. Also the amont element will cause high temps if bad. It is located where the three oil lines come together. There should be 4 screws that hold the cover on. the cover also has a hose connected to it and located close to the oil cooler. This amont element acts like the thermostat in your car. it lets oil bypass the oil cooler or causes more oil to go thru the cooler. the cooler oil and bypass oil mixes and maintains a certain temp. air end temp should run about 195 F and injected temp about 165 F. hope this helps. if you can give more detailed info I can get you closer to your problem.

2004 sienna heating system problem. With the from heat control set to hot it sometimes blows hot and the cold air back and forth on its own with the heat set to hot?


try turning the blower down, if you have the fan on full you will feel cooler air from time to time. as the thermostat only measures the ambient tempreture inside the car when this level is met then it will turn off the heat so it will only blow the air from the car which will feel cooler.
if the car is still cold suspect the tempreture control in the car maybe faulty or the water level in the system maybe low.

Uotside unit blowing cool air but hot on the inside


It sounds like you have a unit called a heat pump. When a heat pump unit is in cooling mode the outside unit blows hot air and the inside unit blows cold air. If the outside unit is blowing cold then the indoor unit is most likely blowing room temperature or warm air. It sounds like the thermostat could be controlling incorrectly or you could have a failed reversing valve which is the device that switches the unit from heating to cooling mode.

Danby DPAC10061 portable air conditioner problem


you may have a factory defective unit that is not turning off the anti-frost heating coil (I have assumed yours contains this item based on your problem description). I would trade it in for a new unit, again assuming you have a warranty or the store offers a good in-store return policy. If this plan bombs, then open the unit and find the heating coil near the cool side of the radiator fins. then disconnect the power wires to the heater and prevent electrical short to wires with quality electrical tape.
