Question about HP 6700

1 Answer

HP DV6700, power keeps switching off after 2-3mins from switch on. Fan does not come on and core temp rises above 90 deg. celcius prior to shutdown. Tried unplugging battery and power then holding power switch for 30 secs then reconnecting...makes no difference. Is the fan faulty which is causing this problem? After cutting out, cannot tun back on for 5-10 mins.

when stationary their is no air flow through the radiator so temperature will rise and the cooling fan comes on ,now as for it not going off then this could be a sensor ,relay or the computer as the sensor tells the temperature to the computer which turns the fan on and off ,now on these cars the fan will stay on for up to 5 mins after turning the engine off so if after this time it hasnt gone off then consult the dealer as you have bought a asian market software vehicle so it will not respond to a code reader to locate any faults just like the europeon version but the american version can be read with a code reader .

Why does my home heating system comes on then off after five mins


Likely the cause is the plenum switch. The switch is temperature actuated, so the fan does not turn on until the temp rises enough.....so, after shutdown the furnace temp "heat soaks" and the fan will come on and off, sometimes several times, and this is normal.....

Acer z5610 suddenly turns OFF Temperature is normal, no overheat, new thermal grease System scanned for errors, viruses - nothing WHAT DOES IT MEAN?


Are you sure the temperatures are ok? When I run DIVX Plus Converter on the Z5610 the CPU (intel Q8200) is running (naturally) at a high load. Speed Fan 4.42 shows rising temperatures going north of 90 degrees C. If only DIVX Converter runs the temperatures of the CPU cores is around 92 to 94 degrees C. But if I start browsing the internet the temperatures go close to 100 degrees C. When one of the cores reaches 100 degrees C Speed Fan shows MINUS temperatures on the cores (-10 to - 20 deg C). Speed Fan is just monitoring as it can not even detect the Fan.
When that happens the Fan stops completely!! And short after that the computer switches of (same as if you would pull the plug).
Obviously there is a bug in the BIOS or the Motherboard which leads to interpretion of temperatures above 100 degrees C as MINUS temperatures which leads to the stop of the fan.
I am sure that also happens whenever you use a CPU intensive program (like a game or any other video converter/rendering program). You might download a temerature monitoring program (i.e. Speed Fan - its free) and see for yourself. Also listen whether the fan stops working compltely (goes completely silent) when the PC overheats and short before it switches off. Let's see what ACER says to that.
I used to like ACER. But first Aspire 4310 tripping frequently because the VGA chip overheats and now that stupid fault ==> never ever ACER again. I will use the Z5610 for internet surfing and get a real all-in-one which you can use. That is a clear sign for me that ACER does not test their machines at all under full load - or knowingly sells faulty machines.

Can you tell me the order in which each componet of a gas furnace comes on to start the furance?


Yes there is a sequence:
0:00 Dial for fan/limit switch is at 70 deg position. Furnace is cold. I turn T-stat to 80 deg to start furnace.
1:00 Burner comes on and dial begins to move slowly up.
2:30 Dial at 140 deg and fan motor comes on. Dial never goes above 150 deg.
3:00 Burner turns off. Dial slowly moves back towards 90 deg.
4:45 Burner turns on and dial is at 110 deg.
4:50 Fan turns off with dial still at 110 deg.
5:30 Burner off. Dial at 120 deg.
6:15 Fan on. Dial at 140 deg. Burner is still off.
7:00 Burner on. Dial at 120 deg.
7:40 Burner off. Dial still at 120 deg.
8:30 Fan off with dial at 110 deg., and it quickly snaps back to the 80 deg. position.
8:30 plus, cycle continues.....

The fan goes on at about 215-217 deg F. The temp. keeps rising up to about 218-219 F while the fan is working and after that the temp. starts dropping down to 215 F and stays there with the fan working....


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

To my understanding, the cooling fan is activated by the ECM. This is done by switching the yellow/black wire to ground. The activation is triggered by the coolant temperature sensor that feeds signals to the ECM. Ideas to consider:
  • verify integrity of connections of coolant temperature sensor (purple/black & purple/green wires) to the ECM;
  • check, clean or replace the coolant temperature sensor itself;
  • bypass ECM and install a manual override switch plus dual reverse protection diode on the 2 yellow/black wires from the cooling fan wire connector.

Good luck and thank you for asking FixYa.

Yes, it is possible the temp. sender is faulty, but I would do a cross check of the actual coolant temperature vs gauge reading using a cooking thermometer in the top of the radiator.
Take care not to get scalded - check it at about 180 to 200 deg.

1989 mazda rx7 turbo over heating


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

A couple of ideas you may want to explore:
  • the engine overheating after a shutdown could perhaps be addressed by installing a time delay off on the relay of the radiator fan. The idea is after absence of Ignition B+12 (engine off), the fan/relay should still be energized for a number of minutes so as to cool the radiator;
  • idling the engine for about 5 minutes before shutdown is a good practice. this enable the engine to cool slowly rather than an abrupt change in temperature of the external but the inside is still rather hot;
  • the opening of the thermostat is triggered by the temperature of the water above it not below (where the spring is);
  • in my country, where it is relatively always hot, some mechs remove the thermostat (of course not applicable in cold climates);
  • a more helpful idea would be the installation of an electric water pump in lieu of the mechanical one. There are several after market models. Pls try here, here or here for a start;
  • it is also possible to wire the electric water pump to still run for a minute or more similar to the proposed time delay for the radiator fan above.

Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa. Happy Holidays.
