CESSNA 175 Low RPM's on takeoff

Does anyone know what could cause low RPM's? We have a Cessna 175 and have checked everything we thought could cause this problem. The max RPM's we can get with a full throttle is 2000, any suggestions? Thank you.

The outer plastic coating around frigidaire freezer thermostat has scratched off slightly is it dangerous to continue using freezer

That's just a beauty factor (mostly)...
Almost immediately peeled off of my kitchen-aid...
Insise... No problem.
I was told if water IS NOT FROSTING up on it... It will be fine.
If water IS frosting... OUTSIDE THE REFRIGERATOR....
the dripping can create lots of issues.

Place clean sheet of typing paper... just like checking those valves under the sink. Wait a few days.. check THAT paper.

No drops = everything is great.

Drops means you need to put some decent insulating
around the tubing to keep MOIST AIR from direct contact..

ELSE ... don't worry about inside refrigerator frost. Designed to handle & drain away water .

(my opinion... NO problem (I'm pretty vigilant about my wife's intake ... keeping toxins to a low roar (she's a keeper)))...

The brazing and tubing materials have not been TOXIC since lead piping days (decades ... wrong... generations ago)...

Good to be thoughtful about these things!!

I have a Sears cold spot chest freezer 198715610 that freezes on the top of the freezer, but the bottom melts everything. What could be causing this problem?

If you are low on refrigerant, the gas will flash on the top part of the evaporator and not throughout the unit. So the top part will be nice and cold and the bottom part will be no where near the top temps. Check for a leak, fix it and then refill unit to specs taking care that the exact amount of refrigerant called for is used.

Freezer runs but will not freeze

Check for low freon first, You need an expert who has testers as well.

Caravell CATF61 can not find temperature control

It's supposed to go to -20! Is there a panel in the side at the bottom? Stat is inside the panel

Kegerator not cooling

which fan , inside or out.. if outside condensor fan is running then it has a bad 175 capacitor or if the compressor is running then it is low on refrigerant. if the cond fan is not running then check thermostat.. you can do this by connecting the two wires together.. another way to check the compressor, cond fan is to reach under and unplug the wires going to comptessor and plug into a 12ga extention cord.

Mccall FS10-E freezer has been sitting unplugged for two years and now won't cool (I believe it worked before but not 100% sure). When plugged in, there is a constant buzzing from the fan motor. ...

Here are a few thoughts.

Possible a very small freon leak. A low level of freon will cause a "No Cooling" situation.
There is a small possibility that since it sat for so long, that the rings on the compressor may not be sealing properly and the compressor is now "Weak" and does not have the capacity it needs to do the job.
Buzzing from what fan motor? Evap or condenser? If the motor buzzes but runs in the correct direction (rotation) and at the correct RPM. I would not be too concerned about the noise at this time.
I'd start with these items before going any farther.
Let me know if I can be of any further help.

Sears Kenmore free standing ice maker not making ice

Hi and wel;come to FixYa. I am Kelly.

Do you know if the compressor is even running?

Also how long has this icemaker been in service?

There are only 3 things that can cause a condition that the unit is not freezing.

1. Low coolant
2. The compressor is not running.
3. The condensor or evaporator fan is not running.

Having said that...

The most common failures for a cooling system are
the PTC relay / thermal overload and the run capacitor.
PTC Relay is item 18 of link below
Thermal overload is item 20 of link below
The condensor fan motor is Item 4 of the link below


Item 5 the electronic control board (see link below) controls the operation of the compressor via the thermostat Item 12 of link below. In addition to that there is also 1 thermistor (Item 20) that is also part of the control circuit.

ANY of the above can cause your icemaker not to function correctly. It will take circuit analysis to isolate which component may be causing your current system.

If the compressor is running and it is not cooling then
There can be any one of the following causing the problem.

1. Low coolant
2. A stuck valve for the cooling / ice making system (5ea)
3. The compressor can be running but not up to speed due to a dragging rotor.

I wish I could say _______ part is what causing your current symptom. It just is not possible without someone doing some on site troubleshooting of everything listed in this post.

I replaced compressor for a hussman refrig and its hums loud

God day,
Some thoughts.
1. Are the evap fan motors running, and at full speed. That would give you abnormally low suction pressure.
2. Cap tube sized too small. or partial restriction in the dryer cap tube/dryer when brazing in the lines.
3. Low ambient. What's the temp the machine is running in.
4. Over sized compressor.
5. Moisture. God, 134A is touchy on that one.
6. Was original cap tube soldered to the suction line to create a heat exchanger. Needed on many apps. Definately would cause flash back on start up.
7. Superheat a little low, should be 12 to 15 degrees.

I have a stand alone freezer model MFU17F3GW8 serial # WB11907298 my problem is that it does not get cold enough. what could be the problem?

. Cut everything off for a few minutes then turn it back on and listen for a click from the compressor relay as the compressor tries to start.
Is the compressor motor running.If no check starter/overload relay.

Are the condenser coils on the back warm or room temp. should be warm

How to check stuff>

evaporator coils are behind the rear cover inside the freezer at the bottom.
observe the frost pattern. Light frost everywhere(NORMAL) or a partial pattern of ice(LOW ON FREON) or nothing(LOW FREON OR COMPRESSOR PROBLEM).
Compressor or freon problem will require a repairman.

Freezeing up, not cooling

Without knowing if it a freezer or a cooler I will have to guess. Could be caused by a few things. I'll list them in order of the one I think is the most common reason.

  1. Door gaskets or someone left door open for a time.
  2. Thermostat set to low.
  3. Low freon
  4. expantion valve out of adjustment or needs replaced
  1. Defrost not working (Will have heaters with a timer)
  2. Low on freon or expantion valve
