On a bosch CIS or CIS E fuel injection system there is a thermal time switch located on the engine upper radiator coolant hos at the head. This device controls the cold start injector timedto engine temperature, cold engine up to about 10 seconds of injection, hot engine 1 or 2 seconds of injection. This switch is used on many European models (VW, MB, etc.) Since you did not provide a make, year and model of the vehicle this is only a guess.

What is thermal overload?

The load current is made to flow through the thermal overload relay, which is actually a bimetalic strip. Beyond a prespecified current the bimetalic strip tend to deflect due to heat (thermal effect) thus cutting off the circuit and hence it acts as an over load relay protection.

How is thermal overload protection done in stator windings of motor?

one way is to use RTD sensor put inside the motor windings. The RTD sensor is connected to an electronic thermal overload relay. This type of relay can provide running temperature of the motor, on the electronic thermal over load relay display panel. RTD sensor is a wire wound resistor that changes resistance depending on the temperature

It will run continuously if the A/C is on. If it is running all the time with the A/C off, then check the thermal relay as it may be stuck closed.

Usually they last a long time. The only exception would be the ones that are thermal. Also if you are unhappy with the speed a new relay can change it. they just plug into fuse box. Don't fix if it isn't broken-there is no regular interval for changes.

Thermal relay or fan motor itself may be bad. Apply 12 volts directly to the fan motor. If it runs ok, look at the thermal relay.

Why wont 1998 Chevy cavalier cooling fan come on?

Blown fuse, defective thermal relay, or defective fan motor. Check the fuse and if it is ok, and all wires are connected, apply 12 volts directly to the fan motor the see if it is ok. If so, replace the thermal relay.

"Thermal Lag" describes a body's thermal mass with respect to time. A body with high thermal mass (high heat capacity and low conductivity) will have a large thermal lag. - Wikipedia

What is the practical significance of thermal death point and thermal death time?

Thermal death point is the temperature at which an organism will be killed by heat, and thermal death time is the concept used to determine what that time and temperature must be. These ideas are frequently used in the food and cosmetic industries to eliminate bacterial contamination.
