DEAR FRIEND,
ngfam1 here for you!
I am happy to be of assistance!

It sounds like the double switch is bad and only working on one setting! Or a 2 stage blower motor that needs to be replaced!needs to be replaced!

This is a situation that you will need service!


If this dryer is 10 years old or more do not spend any money on it!
The new ones are much more efficient! If you have to replace it buy a Speed Queen , it will do 8 loads a week for 25 years!
It's the last washer and dryer I will ever buy!!!! And less expensive than a top of the line unit!

Here is the service company I refer my appliance customers too!

I just noticed that my duke energy bill has been higher during the past several months when I HAVE NOT BEEN LIVING THERE....it has been vacant with the thermostat turned down. Why?


I am a Duke Energy customer too.
You didn't say which state you live in, but if you have been in NC, like me, then the weather has been much colder than normal. Even with the thermostat set lower (and you didn't say what temperature you set yours on), you would probably have used more heat to maintain that temperature. Also, if you house is not insulated as well as it might be, then cold air can be entering the house, making your heating bills higher.

My older model electric hotpoint selfcleaing range, lower oven self cleaning function is not working. what could be wrong, maybe i didn't set a control knob correctly, don't have a maual for t


Back to the fifties! If the lower oven cooks normally, the heating element probably is OK. For self cleaning the normal temperature setting is bypassed and the heating element is set to a substantially higher level. Your oven may be unable to self clean because operation of the knob may not actually start the cycle. The thermostat could need replacing even though normal cooking is OK.

I have a Kenmore Electric Dryer #76974150. It only works right the higher heat setting. Will not heat at all on the low heat settings? Any ideas?


If the dryer is running then the thermal fuse is okay.

The temperature is controlled by three parts. There is the operating thermostat which is on the blower housing and is rated at 150 degrees. This is high heat.

The operating thermostat sits in a thermostat heater which is controlled by the temperature switch. The temperature switch controls how much voltage passes it to the thermostat heater. This is how we achieve lower temperatures. There is about a 15/20 degree difference between high heat and low heat.

The restricted vent may have caused the appearance of the dryer running hot.

I would suggest you check the temperature coming out of the exhaust. It can be checked with the vent hose pulled off. Any thermostat with a range between 120 degrees and 160 can be used. With the vent removed check the temperature of the air in the exhaust. At high temperature it should cycle between 135 degrees to approximately 155 degrees. This is high heat.

If you turn the temperature switch to a lower setting such as delicate you should see a lower temperature in the exhaust. It may only be 15 degrees lower but it should show a lower temperature.

I hope this information helps to resolve this problem.

New Mr. Slim system just installed. Set to "Heat." Temp setting adjustment on the remote control will not go below 59 degrees. Is that factory setting? Set at 59 it keeps room at 70 degrees,...


I have a related concern. I put the Mr. Slim unit in my garage/workshop and most of the time need it just to keep the pipes from freezing. I'd like to set it at 45 or 50 degrees, but the lowest it allows is 59. I bought this to save energy, but it's forcing me to keep the room warmer that I'd like.

Where do I set thermostat when temp is 10 degrees outside?


Setting a thermostat has nothing to do with outdoor temperature, but more to do with what is a comfortable setting for you and your utility bill.

A common misconception associated with thermostats is that a furnace works harder than normal to warm the space back to a comfortable temperature after the thermostat has been set back, resulting in little or no savings. This misconception has been dispelled by years of research and numerous studies. The fuel required to reheat a building to a comfortable temperature is roughly equal to the fuel saved as the building drops to the lower temperature. You save fuel between the time that the temperature stabilizes at the lower level and the next time heat is needed. So, the longer your house remains at the lower temperature, the more energy you save.

Another misconception is that the higher you raise a thermostat, the more heat the furnace will put out, or that the house will warm up faster if the thermostat is raised higher. Furnaces put out the same amount of heat no matter how high the thermostat is set; the variable is how long it must stay on to reach the set temperature.

In the winter, significant savings can be obtained by manually or automatically reducing your thermostat's temperature setting for as little as four hours per day. These savings can be attributed to a building's heat loss in the winter, which depends greatly on the difference between the inside and outside temperatures. For example, if you set the temperature back on your thermostat for an entire night, your energy savings will be substantial. By turning your thermostat back 10 to 15 degrees for 8 hours, you can save about 5 to 15 percent a year on your heating bill -- a savings of as much as 1 percent for each degree if the setback period is eight hours long.
Hope this helps..........

My system is workin properly but the screen resolution is very dim it seems to be very light ..... even we can't read any thing on that. i checked my monitor with another cpu its working properly can...


IT IS NOT HARDWARE PROBLEM
Change screen resolution

Screen resolution refers to the clarity of the text and images on your screen. At higher resolutions, items appear sharper. They also appear smaller, so more items fit on the screen. At lower resolutions, fewer items fit on the screen, but they are larger and easier to see. At very low resolutions, however, images might have jagged edges.

For example, 640 × 480 is a lower screen resolution, and 1600 × 1200 is a higher one. CRT monitors generally display a resolution of 800 × 600 or 1024 × 768. LCD monitors can better support the higher resolutions. Whether you can increase your screen resolution depends on the size and capability of your monitor and the type of video card you have.

2aca9658-0ee7-4b8d-a582-cac335550f26.pngText is larger and easier to read at low screen resolutions, but images are blocky and fewer items fit on the screen

  1. Open Display Settings by clicking the Start button 4f6cbd09-148c-4dd8-b1f2-48f232a2fd33.png, clicking Control Panel, clicking Appearance and Personalization, clicking Personalization, and then clicking Display Settings.

  2. Under Resolution, move the slider to the resolution you want, and then click Apply.

Oven with convection - when baking cookies, cakes, etc they aren't getting done. Bottom and middle is soggy. Both coils look to be heating, convection fan is working.


Set the temperature one position higher. Convection ovens have a more even heat spread so if you used to bake at the top of your old oven it will now be slightly lower temperature

How do i operate the creda 79153, i think i set it wrongly and it costing me more.thanks


You have to regulate the heat yourself by setting the room temperature dial to 1 for a low heat (say for the daytime if you are out) and a higher setting in the evening - Make sure you switch it back to the lower setting before you go to bed. This should make the heat last for most of the day - the other dial is to regulate the heat that is stored so in the summer set it to 1 and the winter store at a higher setting -hope this helps

they are storage heaters and they have bricks in them. They get heated during the night (economy 7), that starts according to what has been set on the system (there shd be a *** 'boiler' room where the economy seven is). Anyway they heat up from the evening say 8 pm to around 6 am. And because the bricks are hot they slowly release heat during the day depending on what level you have set your room temperature to. The overnight charge does what it says on the tin, in that the brick will heat to a level you have set it at. the higher it is the hotter it gets and the more heat you can have during the day.
