Topics I've Started

Replaced freezer thermostat - now it won't turn off KBRS22KGBT4

04 May 2012 - 07:36 AM

My KitchenAid KBRS22KGBT4 wasn't cooling in either compartment, and was making no sound at all. After some good advice from RegUS_PatOff I replaced the freezer thermostat last night, and it came back to life. The problem now is that even at the warmest setting, the freezer is down to 20 degrees and it keeps running. The new thermostat was a direct replacement, so I don't think I could have wired it wrong unless they changed the internal design.

Is there anything else I should check first, or did I just get a bad part?

A. O. Smith FPSH50 won't stay lit

28 July 2011 - 12:12 PM

Woke up to lukewarm water this morning.

I have an A. O. Smith FPSH 50 gas water heater that may be up to 10 years old.

If I power cycle the exhaust blower, it will start, the water heater will light, stay lit for about 30 seconds, then shut off.

The blower then completes its cycle (about another minute) and it shuts off too.

Any idea where I should start trying to troubleshoot this?

Thanks in advance.

KitchenAid doesn't recover after door is opened

20 November 2008 - 06:31 AM

My kitchenAid (freezer on the bottom) is exhibiting some rather odd behavior. I have the fridge thermostat set to keep it at just above freezing. When the door is opened, it can get up into the 40s without the compressor starting up. It will eventually cool back down, but it doesn't start trying to immediately like units I've had in the past. It's a few years old, and came with the house i just bought.

Also, I just replaced the freezer door gasket, but my icemaker ice is still clumping up after it lands in the tray.

Could these two problems be related?

I still have a couple of weeks of home warranty left. . .

Int. Comfort ProductsNAC236AKA1 buzz every 10 seconds

02 September 2008 - 11:31 AM

My main floor A/C consists of a TempStar DC90 blower/furnace unit inside and an International Comfort Products NAC236AKA1 codenser unit outside. I noticed when I got home today that the lights in the house would dim for about 1 second every 10 seconds or so. When I went out to the compressor units (upstairs one is smaller, but same make) they were both running, and cooling properly. The downstairs one was making a buzzing noise at roughly the same interval as the lights were dimming. This happened for roughly an hour after I got home, then stopped.

When power is removed from the compressor, the lights stop dimming.

I live out in the sticks a bit, and this was happening right around dinner time, which makes me wonder - Is this cause or effect? Could the power coming in from the pole cause this if it were low, or is my A/C headed toward a failure?



TempStar DC90 Starts/Stops/starts

31 August 2008 - 12:35 PM

I just bought a house that has a TempStar DC90 as the main floor A/C unit. The thermostat is a Hunter 44668. When the A/C cycles on, I hear the relay click in the thermostat, and the A/C comes on normally. 30 to 60 seconds later, the A/C goes off for a second or less, then immediately comes back on. I DO NOT hear the relay in the thermostat kicking on or off when this happens. It only seems to happen one time after the thermostat turns the unit on. After the one extra off/on it runs normally until it gets to the set temperature.


Any idea what's going on?
