LG microwave intermittently runs


I would try troubleshooting the "defrost circuit". The behavior sounds like the microwave is cooking in the defrost mode, where it actively cooks then stops allowing the food to rotate and the heat to spread then actively cooking again.

Fan coming on after shutdown is okay, and needed. Check for full coolant, and bleeding of any air in the system. Be sure that the heater is on FULL hot during filling.
Then pressure test the cooling system and fix any leaks. Your issue sure sounds like sticking thermostat or low coolant.

I have a Frigidaire gas dryer and it ingites and works but with in a minutes the gas is cut off and never ingites back.


On your gas valve , there are 2 coils . Replace both as they come together . When they get warm due to electricity going thru them , one of them will open ( short ) and not let gas come thru until it's cooled down . Turning the dryer back on later , it will work for a short time , then stop heating again until the dryer is cooled back down. Replaceing these coils will solve your problem .

Hello

Probably the monitor. LCD monitors use electrolytic capactors which change value with heat. The power board in yours probably has 6 to 8 caps whic need replacement. Take it to a reputable repair person or check out my websit.
