May i asked what kind of thermostat you are using? is it a digital or a mechanical one.
it could be out of calibration..
try experimenting with it...
right now if your setting is 75 F and its cutting at 78F then try to lower the setting to 73 F and it might cut off at 75 F then you would know that you have a bad thermostat or a theremostat with a little bit off in calibration...

i hope i was able to solve ur problem

pls rate me...

tnx 4 using fixya..

How do I set coffee maker to shut off in 2 hrs and how to use clean cycle


Not knowing which model you have, here are the instructions for my model. Perhaps yours is the same.

"The Automatic Shutoff
Time can be programmed anywhere from immediate shutoff after completion of the brew cycle up to four hours. When the coffeemaker shuts itself off, two tones will sound. Two hours is the default time. The 0:00 setting shuts the unit off immediately after brewing is complete.
To check the current setting, press and hold the On/Off button and the Automatic Shutoff Time will be displayed.
To change the preset time, press and hold the On/Off button until the red power light and LCD display begin to flash. This signals that you have entered the Set Automatic Shutoff mode.
Press the Hours and Min buttons to scroll forward through the digits until desired time appears. The first setting which appears is preset at 2:00. When it's at 4:00, the next press key of Hour will roll back to 0:00, since four hours is the maximum Automatic Shutoff setting. Pressing and holding either button will allow you to scroll continuously, slowly at first, and then to accelerate to the rate of about three digits per second. As the desired time setting approaches, release the button and then press repeatedly to advance one digit at a time. The Automatic Shutoff Time (ASO) may be 8 9 programmed either before or during coffee brewing. You may also re-program the ASO time when brewing has been completed. If you do so, the Grind & Brew™ will automatically account for any time that has already elapsed after brewing. For example, if you set the ASO for 40 minutes and 25 minutes have already elapsed, the Grind & Brew™ will shut off automatically after 15 minutes (40 minutes minus the 25 elapsed equals 15 minutes)."

Mine doesn't have a specific clean cycle, but to decalcify the unit, add 1/2 vinegar to 2/3 water in a full cafree and run it through. If it's really calcified, turn off about 1/2 way through and let it set for an hour. Then turn it on and finish, Remember to run a pot of clean water through the wash out the vinegar taste.

Why does the unit keep on switching off after running for 2 minutes


Do not know what brand or model your aircon unit is? Sounds as if the temperature you want your unit to run at has already been reached. You need to follow these steps:
- select the temperature you want
- select the icicle icon for cool or thermometer icon for hot.
- select "auto" for your unit to cut in, or to cut off to keep your desired room temp.
For example - hot day 26 degrees and you want the temp in the room to drop to 19 degrees - the unit will shut off once it reaches 19 degrees if it is set to "Auto". Hope this gives you some clues to get it working. Please tick my this helped me box if my tips work. Good luck Gerri.

Engine shutoff on hot days after 45 minutes.


it sounds like the electronic ignition system(under the flywheel) is going bad,that would cause the mower to shut down when it's hot. if you take it back to the repair shop ask them to replace it and it'll be good as new.. Good Luck

AC turn off before it reaches the desired temp


Hi there. I assume the indoor fan runs continuously until the house has cooled down. Clean the condenser. (outside unit)
Another possibility is that the system is getting low on freon. Check for leaks with soapy water at all joints and fix them.
Thanks

Air conditioner compressor keeps shutting down


This is due to thermal overload,Which can be caused by low oil in the compressor,the fan has stopped running on the unit outside,Dirty coils,or just a worn out compressor.Although this is thermal overload,It has nothing to do with outside temperature,But rather the internal temperature of the compressor itself.

I have a comfort zone furnace. If it's 50 degrees in the house, and i set my thermostat to 70 or so,it takes at least 24 hours to reach 70 degrees. The furnace starts up and runs normally for about five...


When the thermostat calls for heat it should run until the room reaches the temperature setting then shut off. Is the blower motor running and can you feel air coming out of the vents? It sounds like the blower is either not running or putting out enough air to keep the furnace heating. The blower moves the heat from the heat exchanger to the room, if it can't remove enough heat from the heat exchanger there is a limit switch that will shut the burner off if it gets to hot and that's what it sounds like is happening.

How to clean the coffee maker & set warmer


In order:
1 and 2) Clean the coffeemaker by puring in 1/3 caraffe vinegar, and 2/3 caraffe water. Either use the self-clean light or brew it as if it were regular coffee - just press the on button and then press the self-clean button, and it will begin.
3)
The Automatic Shutoff Time can be programmed
anywhere from immediate shutoff
after completion of the brew cycle up to four
hours. When the coffeemaker shuts itself off,
two tones will sound. Four hours is the default
time. The 0:00 setting shuts the unit off immediately
after brewing is complete. To check the
current setting, press the “On/Off” button and
the Automatic Shutoff Time will be displayed.
To change the preset time, press and hold the
“On/Off” button until the red “power” light
begins to flash. This signals that you have
entered the “Set Automatic Shutoff” mode.
Press the “Hours” and “Minutes” buttons
to scroll forward through the digits until
desired time appears. The first setting which
appears is preset at “4:00” and the next
display will be “0:00”, since four hours is the
maximum Automatic Shutoff setting. Pressing
and holding either button will allow you to
scroll continuously, slowly at first, and then to
accelerate to the rate of about three digits per
second. As the desired time setting approaches,
release the button and then press repeatedly
to advance one digit at a time.
The Automatic Shutoff Time (ASO) may be
programmed either before or during coffee
brewing. You may also re-program the ASO
time when brewing has been completed. If you
do so, the Automatic Grind & Brew™ will automatically
account for any time that has already
elapsed after brewing. For example, if you set
the ASO for 40 minutes and 25 minutes have
already elapsed, the Grind & Brew™ will shut
off automatically after 15 minutes (40 minutes
minus the 25 elapsed equals 15 minutes).

Good luck!

If you have an ice maker in the freezer compartment try raising the bail arm and shutting it off. It is possible that an ice maker will increase your run time.
