      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

Refrigerator not cooling.

Recommended Posts

My freezer and refrigerator compartments aren't cooling. The light and fan is working but no cooling. It's a 2002 Whirlpool side by side. Is it done or worth repairng? Thanks for any help. DrJ.

Is either section not cooling at all? If so, probably has a bad relay on the compressor, very common to go bad. If freezer section has lots of frost, almost looks like snow, on back wall, then you have a automatic defrost problem. Worst case scenario, it may have a bad compressor, then it wouldn't be worth fixing. I'm guessing probably the relay.

If you have a electrical meter, you can ohm out the compressor. Take the relay off and there is 3 pins. You should no reading from any of the pins to the case of the compressor. If you do, compressor is shorted out and bad. Usually just relay, it's probably the white plastic one that goes bad all the time. Go to Dey Appliance or any appliance store, I think there is one in Northtown and get the part number URC410. It's an upgrade from what they put in there and will never go bad. I think they are only like $20-30. If you have problems wiring it, let me know and I can give you my number and walk you through it on the phone.

Bearslayer, You were right it was the relay from my testing. I just got home and my wife picked up the part you said.I am confused on how to wire it though. If you wouldn't mind it would be great if you could walk me through the wire hookups. Thanks Rick 763-753-6371.
