Question about Refrigerators

I have a Turbo Air M3R47-2. How to prevent the chiller reverting to default temperature setting No.4 after electricity goes and comes.

I adjusted the setting to "No.2", which maintains a temperature between 2-8C for important medicine. However, when electricity goes and the back up generator takes about 15 secs to come on, the chiller comes on to its default temperature setting "No.4". This then sends the temperature below 0C which obviously is bad for the meds because if I'm not home and this happens I'm screwed. How can I fix this?

My first thought was just that you need an Uninterruptible Power Supply which uses a battery and inverter to maintain the power in milliseconds. However, this is a full size commercial fridge like I use in commercial kitchens!

The specs say it is 115v/60/1, NEMA 5-15P, 2.8 Amps, 1/3 HP, so it is well within the capabilities of a larger UPS. This will work, it is 5 amps.

You need to have a bank of batterys that will run it for 24 hr Incase of power loss along with an inverter . But you also need a sensor control. That switches power indirectly at the first sighn of power loss.. it can be done. Good luck

How can i adjust the temperature of my 24 bottle dual zone wine refrigerator? I want to increase the internal temperature.

Brand? Model?
There should be a display (digital) at top of chiller or at least one or two dials at the rear of chiller cabin near the sides. You should be able to set each area by adjusting dial(s). Though there are some units that have only one dial as with the Sears brand that will presume you load the wine bottles at the top or bottom of box.

What part number is for an

A crankcase heater is an electrical component in a compressor in an air-conditioning system, heat pump system, or chiller system. The crankcase heater is normally on all the time, even when the unit is not running, though temperature sensors and set points may turn it off when not needed. A crankcase heater's sole purpose is to prevent refrigerant migration and mixing with crankcase oil when the unit is off, and to prevent condensation of refrigerant in the crankcase of a compressor. The crankcase heater keeps refrigerant at a temperature higher than the coldest part of the system. A crankcase heater generally has the same electrical symbol as a resistor because it converts electricity directly into heat via electrical resistance. The resistance in the heater coil determines the heat it produces when voltage is applied

I cannot afford an aquarium chiller; however the temperature in my tank keeps rising and I can't seem to get it down. What should I do?

If your tank is in a room equipped with air conditioning, that would be your best bet; however if not, there are a few other options available to you.

I found a great do it yourself article on making a homemade aquarium chiller - take a look and see if it helps.

If this does not help, then try the following ideas:

Fill a plastic bottle with water, freeze it, and then place in the tank

Adjust your lighting

Attach small clip-on fans to the hood of your aquarium and aim them towards the waters surface


Lower thetermostatv temprature to 66. it's set to 77 right now and doesn't go lower

Question is not clear.
Add a comment and say what you want to do.

You have 240Volt electric water heater.
Lower thermostat is set as low as it can go at 77.
But you want water temperature set to 66?
First thing to remember is that water heater thermostat settings are approximate since they read temperatures through the steel tank wall.
Second thing is that thermostats for electric water heater are generic, and are not made for lower temperature range settings. This is probably since most people complain that water is not hot enough.
I'm looking at a generic lower thermostat from Lowes right now. The low temperature setting is 90 degrees F.
Looking at some older thermostats from a drawer right now: one does not have a lower temperature mark, the other is a Reliance with low temp of 95, the old craftmaster goes down to 80.
So I don't even have a thermostat that goes as low as the one you have, except for gas water heater thermostats that traditionally can be set to 50 degrees for vacation mode to prevent freezing.
More thermostats can be seen on following link:

How do you lower the temperture in the refrigerator?

Letting perishables such as milk and eggs get warm doesn't just effect the taste; it can also allow bacteria to grow. It's essential to guard against this by adjusting your refrigerator temperature when necessary. Read below for how to do it.

1 Measure the temperature of you refrigerator. To measure the temperature in a fridge without a thermostat, just place a normal thermometer in a glass of water and place it inside the fridge. Check back 5 to 8 hours later to see what temperature the water is. This allows you to determine the temperature indirectly.

  • 2 Adjust the temperature. Once you've identified your refrigerator's temperature, it's time to change the settings. Turn the indicator to the left to make the temperature warmer, and to the right to make your refrigerator colder. It is important to only change the temperature gauge by one setting, regardless of how much you think it must be adjusted. This prevents freezing or thawing of food by making the change gradually.
  • 3 Check the temperature again after 6 to 8 hours. If it's the temperature you want, you're set. If not, move the dial one setting colder or warmer, depending on your needs. The ideal temperature for a refrigerator is 40 degrees. Wait at least 24 hours in between each adjustment to allow the fridge time to achieve that temperature.
  • 4 Prepare for changing seasons. Where you live can have a big influence on your fridge's temperatures. You may need to adjust the temperature lower in the summer and higher in the winter to maintain a constant 40 degrees. Those who live in moderate climates can worry less about weather effecting their refrigerator's temperature.
  • 5 Check the air vents. If you're having trouble achieving the right temperature, even after numerous adjustments, make sure the vents on the inside of the fridge aren't covered. This can prevent air flow, making it impossible to cool the refrigerator

  • Hope this would help you.

    Have a nice day!


    Hello, I'm trying to increase the volume on some phones mitel 5220 and 5224, but it only goes to 6. I need the volume level to go to 10. Do you have any ideas? Firmware is Thank you

    The ADA compliance requires that the phone when set to the highest volume level will revert back to factory default setting for the next call. This is a safety feature to prevent one's hearing aid from being blown up by a loud caller.
    If you turn the volume up to 9, and leave it there, it will stay at 9. If you turn it up to 10, it will always revert back to default.

    I hope this helps,

    GE airconditioner. Temperature setting goes up to 86 degrees by itself. Nothing can change it tried evrtything

    Sounds like the stat is "defaulting" to factory setting, or, what are the programmed settings at? A programmable thermostat will revert to programmed settings unless placed in "hold". If all ok, time to get a new stat.

    5 yr old Jenn Air Electric oven won't maintain oven temperature

    Technician just left our house with same issue. Jenn-Air had issued a technical bulletin as the temperature probe is mounted directly to the heating element, and measures the heat of the element, not the oven. Their fix is a revised temperature probe that goes at a 90 degree angle away from the heating element.

    If your temperature is consistent, just off by a set amount of degrees, there is an adjustment you can make at the control panel.
