My daughter shutdown the PC before Hurricane IKE bought in power outage but forgot to power off the surge protector. Now, after the power is back up, the PC won't start. We changed the power cable to see if the cable was burn't out, but did not solve the problem. Also, tried shutting down the surge protector and turned it on- no success.

The only thing i can think of is the power supply got fried that is the most common problem when it comes to the pc not powering on. Now hopefully that is all that it fried and not the motherboard my suggestion is to take to local pc repair shop and have them change your power supply or you could put it in if you familiar with how the machine is wired.

I need to know how much it would cost to purchase an Oven Control for my Whirlpool Kitchen Range, Model# GS563LXSS, SN RU0127557 During hurrican Ike their was a power surge when our electricity came back...


Most controlboards can't handel a power surge more than 125V and is a reasonable expanation.

Your model number is missing a number at the end and if your model # is GS563LXSS0 or GS563LXSS1 then the Main Control part # is a W10116542

Having hard time with new poulon 18" chainsaw starting.


Since you have good spark and good gas the only things left to check are the air filter and the carbeurator. If the air filter is dirty, replace it. While you are at the auto parts store also pick up a can of a gasoline additive called seafoam which will keep your carb. clean. Finally get a can of spray carb. cleaner and put a couple short squirts directly into the air intake which is right there when you remove the air filter.

Frigidaire side by side - fridge side temp too low


It sounds as though your thermostat is not cycling your compressor off causing it to run until the point of freezing. If you sit and listen, you will hear it hum. If it never stops humming, 9 times out of 10, the power outage shorted your thermostat.
