Question about Kenmore 53642 / 53644 Side by Side Refrigerator

Compressor noise and shutoff

Hello, I've previously posted this problem but I am still working on it. Here is my progress to date. The starting cap is good (15.5uf). The current draw from the compressor is 9.6A before shutoff. The relay does get warm for the few seconds it is on. I plan on ordering a new start relay today but I was hoping for a warm fuzzy from the experts before doing so.The fridge is 7 years old and out of warranty. Relay P/N 218721119. Thanks

No expert here, just another victim.

Have you experienced anything like power disturbances shortly before this problem came up?
We lost a compressor some years ago due to a 'low-line' condition (~20-25 VAC) while we were gone from home and tha is not enough to start the compressor but is was enough to fry it.
It never ran again.

Can you see that the compressor shudders when trying to turn on?
This would indicate that it is starting up but if you see no movment (the suspension whould allow some) then it isn't even trying and could be seized.

The current seems about right, placing the power at ~1100 watts but all modern compressors will have thermally protected motors that will limit current in case of such a seizure to prevent fire.

The dropping out after startup kind of suggests that the current draw is monitored and limited so that if it fails to start, it can shut down again.

If used as in most normal motors, that the start capacitor supplies a phase-shift to a serarate winding that is shut off after spinup, instead of a centrifugal switch, they are just using a relay.
The effect would be the same.

Printer claims ink cartridge is expired and won't let me print


Hello, if you change the date on your computer to 3 months previous (say), then reboot, you can probably overcome this temporarily. Obviously, for normal operation it's best to restore the date to current, and only set the date back when you want to print something.Regards,nicam49

My laptop screen is black. The power button is lighting up blue and I can hear the fans but nothing happens.


Switch ON the PC, boot the PC in 'Safe Mode' by continuously tapping F8 button after you switch On until you get the Safe Mode Option.

Let windows boot in Safe Mode and log in to windows.

Go to 'Start'--->Programs--->Accessories--->System Tools--->Click 'System Restore'


A 'System Restore' window will appear.

Here you will have to check "Restore computer to an earlier time' and click Next


Now you will find one Month Calendar window with Dates below, go to the previous month by clicking the '


Note: It is better if you could remember from which date you are facing the issue, try to select a date prior to that date.


The detail of that particular date should show "System Checkpoint" and time on the right hand side box. Select that date.


Now, Click on Next and System Restore will start and windows will take a reboot.

After reboot your problem should be resolved.

currently on a trip in Europe and when I went to shoot this morning, I can only capture 1/3 of the area I'm shooting. That is everything in the lower 2/3 of the screen is black. I've tried a couple of lenses with no avail. Viewing previous pics is not a problem, so this is obviously not a screen problem. I'm thinking something with the mirrors? Any suggestionns

Try system restore. Go to START ICON>ACCESSORIES>SYSTEM TOOLS>SYSTEM RESTORE>CHOOSE PREVIOUS DATE THAT YOUR KEYBOARD WORKS FINE BEFORE.

If still the same, I suggest you repair the operating system using the Operating system Installer CD/DVD. Then it will back to normal.

Please rate and make a comment if you find this solution very helpful and might help others as well. Post more comments if you need more help.

Regards and thank you for using Fixya !

Posting progress payments


If you are paying your sales tax by invoice date - the payments will not affect your liablity. ie you owe the whole amount of sales tax as of the date of the invoice. If you are paying sales tax as of the time of payment. You will owe sales tax at the time you receive payment.
Since you are using progress invoicing, the sales tax would be come due at the time of the invoice. If you are just receiving payments, you would receive payments (as you would with any customer, and not invoice until time of completion. You would just need to make sure that your preference for sales tax due date is set to Invoice date, not time of payment.

Overexposure, Underexposure

The pictures are often too dark but sometimes too light. I have now found a work-around for this problem. It consists of doing the following:

* set the sensitivity to ISO 100
* set the flash to "A"
* take a picture with the lens cap on
* remove the lense cap and take your pictures - they should come out fine

I don't know why this works but I think that when the TZ1 does not have enough information to compute a shot, it will rely on information from previous shots. Taking a picture with the lens cap on may reset the information in the camera so that it does not rely on previous shots. Setting the ISO to 100 will prevent the over exposed shots as the software may sometimes choose ISO 400

HP DV2175 START UP PROBLEM


The beeps are part of the POST (Power On Self Test). For whatever reason, HP does not do a great job telling us exactly what their POST beep codes mean. The only thing I could find was that the 1 long, 2 short beeps on the AWARD BIOS systems means a failed video adapter. I think there is a good chance this is your problem. You will most likely have to contact HP to get it repaired.
