Tip & How-To about Cell Phones

Here is a possible fix for a wet Cell Phone, PDA, Remote etc.

Right so your electronics got wet, now it won't work, do not despair, at least not yet. Here's a way of maybe getting it back. What you need to do is get as much H2O out as possible, swinging the unit, around ones head, or in a circle, & using centrifugal force to try to get any moisture out, then bury the while thing under at least an inch of DRY RICE, leave for a day or so in a nice warm place, and this may just fix it. BTW, always remove the batteries immediately, if it ever gets wet, whatever it is, and shake it violently, to immediately, get as much liquid out as is possible.
Another thing that also may work is Silica Gel, this is a commercial desiccant and pulls moisture out of things and absorbs it itself, it is extremely hygroscopic, meaning it attracts water.
Also any of those product that say they remove dampness & mildew from cupboard & wardrobes etc, that too will work in a pinch.

Husqvarna 223L won't start

I would first take the spark plug out and see if the tip is wet, it could very well be flooded.

second of all I'd try putting fuel directly into the carb (if this helps you'll most likely need a carb kit or maybe even a new carb)

Dishes come out all wet. Maybe the heating element but would there be any other potential?

You are right -almost-. When the heating element is not working properly and dishes doesn't dry, I don't think the heating element went bad. It's more likely that other part is causing the problem. Perhaps the timer went bad.

When the timer is broken, the heating element doesn't get power to dry the dishes. By the way, the timer are also called electronic controls or control panel. I believe it needs to be replaced.
