Can the compresssor and working be put on the top of a unit enabling the heat to be lost through the top or do they have to be at the bottom. If so why i.e Gravity plays a part in the prosess. Do you have a freezer designers details

Compressor can go on top - gravity plays no part in the process

Do you have plastic replacement shield for light bulb for GE Exhaust Hood - Model JV347 0XIAA - Serial GS867119C ?


I'm betting 60 watt is much higher than the wattage recommended generating way too much heat in the confined space under the plastic shield. There should be a sticker in the bulb compartment listing the maximum wattage recommended.

Chemical odor...


Hi,

HERE ARE 10 EFFECTIVE WAYS TO REMOVE THE BAD SMELL:

1. CharcoalCharcoal is on top of my list as it is one of the best absorbent agents that can absorb and soak up the bad odour. Charcoal is also widely used as water filters and in most odour removing commercial products. You can put a medium-sized chunk of charcoal inside your smelly refrigerator for instance, and leave it there for a couple of days. You will notice that it can effectively remove the bad smell.
2. Baking SodaBaking soda is also a good absorbent. Put a generous amount of baking soda in an uncovered container (the size of the container depends on the size of the confined area) and leave it for several days. Remove the baking soda and replace it with new one and leave it for a couple of days. Continue replacing the baking soda until it has cleared the bad smell.
3. Lemon or Lime PeelJust put some lemon or lime peels into an uncovered container and leave them inside the confined area for a couple of days. The citrus smell will naturally replace the bad smell.
4. Pandan Leaf (also known as Pandanus or Screwpine)It is easy to get pandan leaf in tropical countries as it is widely used in Southeast Asian cooking to add aroma to dishes. Its pleasant aroma also acts as natural air freshener. Just take a few strips of the pandan leaves and tie them into knots. Place the leaves inside the confined space and leave them until the leaves withered or dried up. Replace the leaves regularly until the smell goes away.
5. Vanilla Essence Pour several drops of vanilla essence on a couple of cotton wools. Toss the cotton wools inside the confined space such as your wardrobe. Leave them for several days and you will notice that the area smells nice.
6. Mint Extract If you favor neither the smell of citrus nor vanilla, you can perhaps use mint extract instead. Pour several drops of mint extract on a couple of cotton wools. Toss the cotton wools inside the confined space and leave them for a couple of days.
7. Fresh Ground CoffeeGround coffee has a nice, crisp natural aroma. Just put about a cup of ground coffee in a flat, uncovered container. Place the container inside the confined space for several days. If the bad smell is extremely horrible, put more ground coffee. The area will smell of fresh coffee for many days.
8. Tea BagsIf you don't like coffee, you can use tea bags instead. Just place 2-3 tea bags inside the confined space. The tealeaves in the bags will not only absorb the bad smell but also will release the natural aroma of tea.
9. Orange and ClovesGet an orange and poke it with sharp objects like needle or fork to form small holes. Place each of the cloves inside these small holes until most of the orange surfaces are covered. It may look like a hedgehog with the cloves jutting out of the orange fruit. Leave it in the confined area for a couple of days. The area will smell nice with the said combinations.
10. Old Newspaper and Slices of BreadOld newspaper and slices of bread also work wonders in absorbing the bad odours particularly inside the refrigerator. Just place some crumpled old newspaper and two slices of bread (uncovered) inside your refrigerator and leave them for two days. Replace them (especially the bread) regularly until the bad smell is removed.

You can also use the combination of any of the above tips together, to effectively remove bad smell. Try those tips and you will say goodbye to bad smells forever.


Goodluck,

MY HTC PHONE IS VERY HOT TO TOUCH AND JUST ON THE 02 HOME PAGE AND WONT MOVE ANYWHERE


Take your battery out of the phone immediately.
Odds are you have kept your phone in your pocket or another confined space and it has been running a poorly coded or very intense app, which has caused the phone to work very hard but was unable to dissipate heat. Make sure you cancel all apps before putting your phone in a confined space.

Battery maximum usertime&excessive heat generated while using. LENOVO G560 model Under warranty


Most newer lap top computers generate a lot of heat. The designers of the machine walk a narrow line between efficiency and customer satisfaction. The heat comes from the processor and the power supply of the screen. Designers incorporate a standard called heat pipe design into cooling the CPU along with a small fan sometimes. The heat pipe design is a static (no electricity used) means of wicking away the heat from the processor. When the temperature goes higher than the heat pipe can act, a small fan cuts in to reduce the temperature, but at a cost of using electricity from your batteries. The heat of the lap tops have caused people to seek medical help for excessive reddened legs, thus generating a medical syndrome called "Lap top Syndrome"

The batteries are LI-ion (Lithium Ion) construction and have to be re-charged with extreme care as excessive heat generated by charging can case the lithium to burn and cause a fire. Battery designers have placed a small smart chip in the battery pack to monitor the voltage levels and this chip will shut the battery down if too much heat is detected. Since the batteries are of Li-ion design, they start

Fridge freezer kept in cold garage. Freezer works from time to time but fridge stopped work. Could it be a thermostat problem or due to temperature of garage?


The problem is with the garage temperature. The temperature sensor for the refrigerator is in the fridge compartment, but the evap coils are in the freezer. Refrigerators were designed to work in an air conditioned space. When they are put into unheated spaces, it does not work well. The fridge thermostat typically is set to 40 deg F. If the outside temperature is close to that, then it does not turn on the compressor as much so the freezer will have a hard time staying below freezing.

There are garage refrigerator kits for people who put fridges in un heated garages in the winter. They just simple electric heaters that warm the fridge's thermostat to cause the compressor to run more often. This helps the fridge to maintain temperatures better in the freezer compartment. The same thing can be accomplished by putting a small wattage bulb in the refrigerator compartment. Just remember to remove it during the warm weather otherwise you will pay a large electricity bill in the summer months.

My existing duct is a 4x10, the KOBE CH2230SQ does provide the 4x10 ducting option, but 1. it does not have any spout to catch the duct opening; 2. the vent plate has a thickness, but my cabinet is...


You should be able to purchase the 4x10 hood boot from Lowe's or Home Depot. As for the cabinet mount, maybe you can cut a bigger hole. I have modified fittings to fit small spaces but most heat and air installers can make you fittings for small confined spaces. I have found them to be quite reasonable too! Hope this helps.

Xbox is making a loud noise when disc is in use


not abnormal, I have 3 xbox 360s depending on the dvd drive and the console some are louder than others. Is it noticeable louder than it has been? did you move it to a place where it is in a smaller space, or in a more confined area? If so try putting in a area that is not confined and more open and to help with the heat flow.

Kenmore side by side freezer side - freezer side drain overflows & leaks on floor


Unusual problem. Most defrost water drain pans are designed to hold all the water the refrigerator can generate. The water should be evaporated by the compressor heat and heat from the coils. Is the refrigerator cooling adequately? Perhaps there is some problem with the compressor and or compressor fan operation.

You might try finding a larger pan and see if you can get it where the existing pan is located.

Too much NOISE.


These generators are air cooled. You could put a box round them but they would suffocate/over heat and get damaged. If you extend the exhaust it should quieten it a bit but i wouldn't recommend covering it over. I design super silent gensets for a living and airflow is the biggest concern with air cooled sets.
