The problem is the compressor.  Techumseh compressors are notorious for this problem.  Pretty soon it won't start at all.  The compressor has a 5 yr warranty from date of purchase.  I replace these all the time.  The good thing is they are replacing them with Embraco compressors which are much better quality.  Would appreciate a solved rating for expert advice.

If mechanical or electronic then it has to be replaced with a modified one no way to adjust.

SOURCE: ice maker stopped making ice

it's not possible for this to be self-repaired as there might be some internal damage.
have a professional take a look at it before you use it any further.

I have a 99 accord the alternator plug was cut. Looks like they tried to splic the wires to fit a different plug or something. What wires do I run to each metal piece on the alternator?

The WHT/RED wire from the PCM connects to terminal 4 (FR); the WHT/GRN wire from the PCM connects to terminal 2 (C); The BLK (or WHT) wire from the underhood fuse/relay box connects to terminal T102 (B); the WHT/BLU wire from the gauge assembly connects to terminal 3 (L), and the BLK/YEL wire from the driver's under-dash fuse relay box connects to terminal 1 (IG)

Can I install an iPod adapter in a car radio?

If your car has a cassette player;they sale a cassette that has a plug that fits into your ipod earphone jack. It will serve the purpose well. If not; you will perhaps need a new radio that accomodates a plugin.

Landcruiser 05 1HZ, Glow Plug Light comes on when I decelerate and goes off when I accelerate again - any idea

Hello kbmind, A number of different glow plug systems were used on the Landcruiser, depending where it was made and what country it was shipped to. However, they all serve the same purpose on a diesel injection. To preheat the combustion chambers. If your light is on when you deaccelerate the control module thinks the cylinder is cooling down & fires up the glow plug. This usually indicates the glow plug relay is weak and/or the glow plugs themself are worn.
Depending on your mileage, i would say it's the relay. The glow plugs can be tested with an ohm meter to determine if they need to be replaced. I hope this helps.

Have an Amana 85088 P1109007W that worked fine for 18 year just bought a new one and moved the Amana out to the garage to use as a second frig .We cleaned it and plugged it in , it cooled for about 10 min...

It may be in defrost mode. Look at the temp control on the underside for a hole with no
screw in it that appears to serve no purpose. Using a flathead screwdriver, turn the
mechanism inside the hole, (it is the defrost timer) and see if the unit comes on. If no
luck, then replace the start relay which is located under the plastic cover on the side of
the compressor. It plugs onto the compressor on three pins, if no replacement is available
they make a "universal" start kit for about 8 dollars which plugs onto these pins and has
good instructions. Model and serial number are usually inside the fresh food compartment
on the left side. The appliance parts store should have this item readily available.
Hope this helps :) remember to unplug unit before replacing any parts.

Replace the spark plugs and wires along with a distributor cap and rotor. Be careful to leave the old wires and plug wires connected to dist.cap, just remove dist. cap from the distributor and lay aside with plug wires on it then install rotor then new cap and proceed to replace each wire for cap and spark plug one at a time so you don't mix up the spark plug wire firing order. Cap laying to the side is used for reference purpose.

How can i tell if my distributor cap in rotor need replacement

There is no distributor or rotor. It is a direct ignition system. Only plugs and wires.

Need help with 2004 Hyundai Santa Fe Audio Wiring

Sounds like you need a light tester. I would guess that at least 8 of the wires are speaker + & - the others will be Main power and earth Possibly electric ariel, Memory store and a wire for the anti theft circuit. Assuming the stereo is factory. Any Audio shop can perform a test to clarify the purpose of the wires Wouldnt worry about the blank its probably a position for a newer or different model to yours.

Can a cooler fan relay be located and replaced by a non mechanic

Dont know where your relay is but generally relays are grouped together in a box under the hood or on a rail on the firewall. They are "plug in" units that can be easily repalced.The ones housed in a box are usually easier to service because there is a description usually inside the cover. Many times the relays are the same# serving different purposes. If thats the case, use a good one and plug it into different slots 'till the fan comes on (make sure engine is hot enough for this to happen) Be aware that a bad sensor will give you a similar problem (it won't tell the relay to go on)

1987 GMC Jimmy Distributor cap and Rotor replacement

A diagram may not be needed as its a reasonably easy fix to do on your own.the distributor ca p will only fit on properly one way because at the base of the cap locaters can only fit the distributor if they line up.When doing the spark plug leads do them one at a time and if nessecary write or mark leads as 1,2 etc .The rotor can only fit on one way but put a mark on the distributor to show where the rotor was pointing when you took it off and if it still points there when the new one is fitted.When changing distributor cap and leads they have to go to the correct place.Pays to mark the outside of distributor cap where the locating bits are On the new and old one.Fit the new cap and rotor then take a spark plug lead and fit to new cap 1 at a time.You can tell by lining up the marks on the outside of the distributor cap when you hold them one on top of the other.Good luck
