Hello, here is what the problem may be. Every air conditioner has a motor called a compressor. The compressor provides the cooling capacity for the air conditioner. If the compressor or its electrical controls are defective the compressor may try to start, fail, and create an electrical overload. If the unit does create an overload, every compressor circuit is also equipped with an overload safety switch. The safety switch is designed to protect the compressor from burning out. The safety switch will cut the power to the compressor for a certain length of time and then reset itself. When it resets it will allow the electricity to flow to the compressor once again. If the compressor then starts, the unit should function normally. If the compressor doesn't start when the overload resets, the overload will again cut the electricity to the compressor. This cycle will continue indefinitely. (Always allow three to five minutes before restarting the compressor.) If this situation is occurring, unplug the air conditioner and get help from a qualified repair technician. This problem is often fatal to the air conditioner because the cost of repair often exceeds the price of a new air conditioner.

I have a stainless steel frigadar Waited 24 hours plugged in and now the freezer will only get down to about 35 degrees . them goes back up and stays around 45 to 47 degrees . cleaned the condersor

Is thermostat properly calibrated? If not that will account for premature shutdown and higher internal temps. Check door gaskets for proper sealing.

And if all components are ok along with gaskets then the only thing it can be is low refrigerant. U can check for this by removing the back panel covering the evaporator. There should be frost spread out evenly across the entire surface of evaporator coil. If you discover a clump of ice immediately where the refrigerant enters the freezer, that is explained by the freon flashing immediately instead of doing it evenly across the entire coil.

Have to be careful when you add refrigerant via a schraeder valve that you have to install. The amount of freon has to be spot on, unlike car and room ac units. After leak is repair and system evacuated best way to load it is by weighing the exact amount of freon that is supposed to be in the system as per the manufacturer specs.

My frigadare front loader has code E20 on it and won't drain out all water from clothes or drum

Error code e20 means a clogged drain pump. This might have happened due to small clips, pins, coins, etc being stuck in the pump. Please note that error e20 can also occur when the drain pump is not pumping fast enough or when the pump fails. To fix the issue you'll need to check the drain pump.
Remove the 2 screws from the bottom of the front access panel, it will come off. Now check for the pump on the right side and remove hoses from it. Remove pump from machine then remove whatever is there in the pump. Hope this helps... Please post back for any further assistance.

I am tiling my bathroom from a full strip out. The walls are plum and level all round but when I use the laserlevel, the line is out when I get back to the start corner. My builder has checked and double...

If I understand which unit this is, it's not sold as a highly accurate instrument (advertised use is for hanging pictures). No numeric specifications were given for it's accuracy. And I don't think it is adjustable. Also, by using the level on each wall progressively you might be accumulating error manually.
You can easily measure the accuracy of your laser level by taking it to a room with one long wall (the bathroom is too small) Hold the laser against the wall at the left end of the room and make a mark nearby. Have a helper make a mark on the wall at the most distant point possible (at the right end of the room) Now put the laser near the mark your helper made at the height aligned with his mark. Now, back at the left end of the room have your helper measure the vertical distance between the laser beam and your first mark. This will measure double the level's error over the length of the wall. However, this test assumes that the beam coming out of the left side and the right side are perfectly co-linear. .

AC was cooling fine. Now, won't cool room even though cool air comes out. Exhaust hose is extremely hot.

Check filter, if you have a 5000BTU unit (small) and it is extremely hot, then it wont work great for a big room. BTU is the rate of what the AC will put out. 5000 BTU is good for a small single room. 10,000 will cool a bigger room and 18,000 btu is meant to cool a home.

My masher wont stop filling with water or agitate

if water stops coming into machine when you pull the plug you have faulty water level control or the hose going to it.
check the hose for cracks or worn spots, repair or replace.
If the hose is ok you have a faulty control.
If water does not stop when you pull the plug you have a faulty water valve.
You can try dismanling it and cleaning or simply replace it.

COURTYARD WITH PALM TREES AND TIGHTROPE: Enter cautiously, Larson waits in the next room, up on a balcony to the left. Let him have it with your pistols and he'll run off shortly. Pick up a small medipak in the alcove on the right. Then go through the doorway below where Larson was standing. First go left down the ramp to a room with boxes. Here you'll find a GARDEN KEY (shaped like a star) on one crate.
Return to the hallway and continue left to the top. Larson will shoot at Lara again from the other side of the gap. Again, plug him a few times to scare him off. Then tightrope walk across to the opposite balcony. Drop down and, if you like, use the switch to open a gate leading back to the FOUNTAIN COURTYARD. (NOTE: As before, you don't have to do this, but it could save you some backtracking.)
Head away from the gate toward a WIDER STREET WITH A GATED GARDEN off to the right. This is where you'll use the GARDEN KEY, but you need another one first. Go to the left end of the street and through the small, square doorway. Follow the hallway, picking up some revolver bullets in a small room on the left. Make a mental note of the LOCKED WOODEN GATE with the small room behind it. This is the location of the second secret. You'll come back for it later.
Continue upstairs. Be sure to pick up the REVOLVER on the landing. (You probably won't miss it because the camera focuses on it so you're unable to look at anything else.) At the top of the ramp, push open the blue double doors. Inside this SMALL ROOM WITH WINE BARRELS you'll find the LASER SIGHT on the floor to the left and a padlocked gate on the right. Shoot the padlock: either use the revolver equipped with the laser sight to target it (check your instruction booklet or see the section on 'using the laser sight' on the TR5 controls page), or face the lock squarely and shoot continuously with pistols while crouching. Lara should hit the lock on the way down. Behind the gate is the second GARDEN KEY. A colony of rats swarms out. Some of these will try to bite Lara, so if you've gotten everything, run away downstairs. Or, run out, jump the railing and wait for the bats to disperse before returning to collect the key.
