SOURCE: heil heater starts/stops before reaching temp

is installed in a vertical up flow or horizontal position , if in horz position you could have a bad or miss positioned roll out switch this is a thermal switch positioned toward the burner edge that if the flame rolls out of burner area trips and then resets as it cools allowing the furnace to re-start until it reaches temperature , something to check .

My freezer start only a few sec. After 10minutes start again

Sounds like something is causing your compressor to kick the overload. It could be the overload itself or it could be the start relay or it could be a locked compressor. Probably best to call a service tech.

The refrigerator keeps shutting off and coming back on periodically

Hello Jeff;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service refrigeration technician.

That tells me your unit is working normally. If it was running continuously then you have a problem.

1.) Every 8-10 hours your unit will shut down except for the lights. At this time your defrost heater will come on for 20-30 minutes to defrost your cooling coils. Then your unit will come back on.

2.) You compressor will turn on when your have reached 10-20 degrees below temperature. It will shut off when you have reached 10-20 degrees above your set temperature.

3.) The normal settings for your freezer is -2 to 2 degrees F. and the normal setting for your fresh food section is 35-40 degrees F.

4.) Make sure you clean your condensing coil. This dissipates the heat from your unit every 6 months. This coil is either in the bottom front or a canister located in the lower left hand side in the back of your unit. Unplug your unit if you have a canister.

Chest freezer suddenly stops working then will start again later

This is normal if your freezer is in good working condition. If your compressor runs constantly then there is a problem. Once the unit reaches the set temperature the compressor shuts down. The set temperature should be between -2 & +2 degree F. The set temperature also depends on how full the freezer is. There will be a time when the freezer like refrigerators will shut down. This is relative to the term, "Frost Free". The unit will shut down for about 10 minutes. This occurs ever 8-10 hours. The heater turns on to defrost your freezer coil. It sounds like you are in good shape.

Kegerator gets cold but will not not stay cold. its like unit shuts off after it reaches cold

You may need to replace the thermostat. Sound like it works until the low temp setting is reached and then can't maintain that temperature. Given that it will turn the machine on when the refrigerated compartment is warm this implies that the thermostat works until it breaks the connection when the low temperature target is reached.

Kitchenaid KBFL25ETSS00 bottom freezer refrigerator not cooling properly in the refrigerator nor the freezer. I hear the refrigerator running, but don't know if it is just the fan. It was working fine,...

You mean the temps are getting warmer? Look inside the rear of your freezer and back wall and tell me if you see snow or a layir of frost building. If so pull everything and unplug and do a manual defrost a hair drier will speed things up.Sounds like we need to use the tech sheet here but Kitchenaid will not allow me to publish here. So Skater125 you need to click here and I will send it to you only, Thanks, Sea Breeze

The oven will not reach desired temperature. Had

it sounds like you have a bad temperature controller thermostat or your temperature sensor inside the oven, (a metal rod attached to a thin metal wire) is not in its proper place. It clips into connectors located at the back center of the oven itself.

Fridge won't cut back on after it shuts off until its [powered off and on.

Hi, It sounds like the cold control is going bad. When it shuts of again, give it lettle bit and the tap on the control instead of turning it. If it kicks on, then you know it's the temperature control. Please let me know if this is what you find and if I can assist you with part# or how to order it.

Most of this coolers the fans inside runs all the time ,the compresor is the one that stops when it reaches the temperature you've set, but if the compresor never shuts off and it colds ok ,either the cold control is set too low ,its sensor is loose or it doesn't work properly and needs to be replace.

My Kitchen Aid Supuerba top covection oven will heat to set temp 350-400 then drop over 100 degree's but still read on digital display 350 or 400

how do you know it is dropping 100 degrees ?
If the set temperature is 350-400 the heaters will work untill the thermostat will read that the temperature is reached - after that the heaters will shut down and the temperature will drop...and after few minutes when the temperature goes below thw set point (in this case 350-400) the heaters will turn on again - this will happen for the duration of the timing you have selected (example 45 minutes)
