The other night the "hi temp" alarm went off. I pulled the front lower vent cover and removed a wall of dust from what looks like some coils??. The fan did come on later but in the morning it was reading the same temp (71 deg) unplugged for a bit and plugged back in and have not heard fan turn on or any noise. The display lights up. I can adjust temp setting but it never cools. When I removed my wine I noticed a demple inside, at the bottom, about 3 inch circle, that the plastic looks to have melted a bit. Can't find a repair manual. Any info at all will help. Thank You

Re: NOT COOLING (Franklin FWC35)
Sound like maybe the Compressor may have packed it in. Sometimes they overheat and that is what melts the plastic liner of the refridgerator. You need to call a service repair person or simply take the small frideg to them at the repair center. Most manufactureres have a repair cneter locator. Go to their web site and find the autorized repair center near you. If it is still under warranty you will in most cases need to find the receipt. ( TIP I put a copy of the receipt on the back in a ziplock bag on all appliances) This makes it easier to find them when things go wrong.

You are receiving temperatures that would be considered dangerously high for the internal components of your laptop. What i would suggest doing is opening up your laptop, if you are comfortable doing so, and inspecting the heatsinks, fans, along the chassis of the laptop, under the keyboard, and anywhere that there may be dust. Clean off all the dust with a good spay with a can of compressed air and try again. If your temps are still that high I would suggest redoing the thermal paste under the heatsinks in your laptop. Not having a good application at the factory can cause issues later on down the line. I use artic silver for my thermal paste. All you have to do is follow all the instructions that come with the paste and it should be alright. If you do not see your temps go down after that, I would suggest taking your laptop in for service as there could be a potential of damaging your internal components.
well lets start with the 2" pvc pipe. that is a combustion air intake it does not put air into the room, i hope. this is a 90% furnace and they should have installed it that way. there should be 2 pipes to the outside the other is combustion gases. the dust problem maybe caused by the air return pulling the air to that room. the bedroom normaly does not get the trafic that the rest of the condo does.so it would not have as much dust.
One of the biggest problems is with the new refrigerants (R134A in this case). If the unit gets overheated it actually causes the salts in the moisture releases and travels throughout the system eventually clogging the metering device (capillary tube). The only thing that can be done is to have the system flushed, new drier, evacuated and re-charged. Then make sure there is enough air circulating and keep the coils squeaky clean.
We have a FAC127P1A and if you gently pull the lower cover by holding each side where there is an indentation it will lower so you can get to the filter. Then either replace or wash the filter. We have another model, FAA087P7A1, and we were able to pull the cover down and lift up slightly and remove the cover and wash to remove the collection of dust, etc.
On this latter model there is a collection of dust, etc. in the area where the cooling is blown into the room that I would like to know how to remove for cleaning. I feel it is unhealthy the way it is now and would like to clean it before removing for the season. I know I could use q-tips or a small piece of cloth to clean but that is pain staking.
Your drain plug within the evap area of the freezer is frozen, turn frig off, let sit for day or two with doors open. Once all ice has melted then take rear freezer evap cover off and pour water into try and make sure it drains, if not then unplug drain. This is usually caused by a defrost heater bad or unit not going into defrost when it's supposed to, may be main board.
