Question about Refrigerators

1 Answer

When the tempretures get very hot my fridge won't keep things very cold. It was purchased new and put in our pool house. With the thermostat set to the coldest position it will only cool to around 34-35 degrees. Needless to say I like my beer colder. Is there anything I can do?

First of all make sure you check there points:

1. Keep at least 12 inch distance between wall and backside of refrigerator so that there is enough ventilation for the compressor heat exchanger.
2. There are some gaps between items kept in refrigerator and it is not stuffed with too many things. Its something same as AC fails to cool in a crowded room, if you overload the refrigerator, it will fail to cool.
3. Frequency of opening of door. If door is open quite often then it will cool less. It happens in summers that people open it more often for cold water or ice etc.

If above all fails then keep a small table fan behind the refrigerator blowing air directly on the heat exchanger and if this also fails then get it checked by technician for:

1. Low gas
2. Compressor Fitness

Dishwasher not heating water already replaced in line heater element no change


Hello

Possible causes;

Incoming Water; Most manufacturers recommend that the water coming into your dishwasher be at least 120 degrees Fahrenheit. If the water is too cold, then your dishes don't clean properly. Or the dishwasher must run longer to heat up the water. Test the water temperature by running the hot water on your faucet for about 2 minutes or until it gets really hot. Place a waterproof thermometer under the water. If the water is too cold, increase the water temperature setting on your water heater.

Thermostat;The thermostat is responsible for regulating the water and drying cycle temperature. If this thermostat isn't working, the heating element at the base of the dishwasher tub may not come on. Test this element by selecting the hottest temperature setting. Run the dishwasher on the shortest cycle. Let the dishwasher run for a few minutes, and open it up. If the dishwasher water is not hot or the drying cycle isn't starting, order a new thermostat from a parts dealer since this component is difficult to fix.

Heating Element/Drying Fan; The heating element heats up the water and air. Access this element by removing the bottom rack. It looks like a long black rod. If any part of this component is broken or corroded, you must order a new one. You usually cannot fix this element. The drying fan is located in the main housing of the dishwasher, and it blows air around your dishes to dry them. Check this part by disconnecting the dishwasher from the power supply and opening up the housing. Examine the fan, and see if any dirt or debris is preventing it from moving. Clean it. If the fan won't turn at all or if the motor is burnt out, order a new fan since it's difficult to repair this part.

If your dishwasher isn't drying your dishes properly, see if you have selected a heated drying cycle. An air drying cycle doesn't completely dry your dishes. Never overload the dishwasher, as this prevents heat from circulating around your dishes, keeping them from drying properly. Plastic and Teflon

ABSOLUTELY! Purchase a 'Y' adapter from your local hardware store and attach the hot and cold lines on the washer to the 'Y' attached to the cold faucet. You won't be able to wash in warm or hot without changing the hoses, though.

2004 sienna heating system problem. With the from heat control set to hot it sometimes blows hot and the cold air back and forth on its own with the heat set to hot?


try turning the blower down, if you have the fan on full you will feel cooler air from time to time. as the thermostat only measures the ambient tempreture inside the car when this level is met then it will turn off the heat so it will only blow the air from the car which will feel cooler.
if the car is still cold suspect the tempreture control in the car maybe faulty or the water level in the system maybe low.

What make and model is this unit. It sounds like it could be an error code. Possibly a thermal fuse or something in the defrost cycle. Try unpluging the unit for 15 mins and plug it in again. It will at least reset it and it may run until it hits the defrost cycle again. You are most likely going to require service.
