I have a Bionaire Steam Mop, Model SM-02. The water appears to be heating up, but no steam comes out. Green light is on

My daughter has one of these and has the same problem. Does the body of the steamer (where the motor is located on yours) get really warm ? I took this one apart,and could find nothing visual wrong,but the motor itself was so hot that I couldn't touch it.The motor does make sounds even though it isn't supposed to after it has been running for a few seconds, but I don't think that it's turning.and no steam emits,so I suspect that is the problem. All the water hoses were clear,so I suspect that the motor will have to be replaced.It did work once and puffed steam out but not enough to do anything.

Christmas Light Problem

Finding the Bad Bulblights1b.gif Ideally, the bad bulb will be dark while the rest of the string remains lit. But often that does not happen. The lights in these strings are basically in series, and any open connection, whether in a wire, at a socket, or even inside a bulb, will turn off that whole circuit. Normally the bulbs have a "shunt" which shorts the bulb when it experiences full line voltage. That leaves the bad bulb OFF, and the rest of that circuit ON, which shows which bulb to replace. Unfortunately, the shunt often fails to operate, and then an entire circuit is off. One possibility is to go down the string light-by-light and remove a bulb, test it, then put it back if it tests good. But not only is that a heck of a lot of work, it has the potential to make things much worse: When the string does not light up we cannot know that we have seated a bulb properly. These strings generally have sockets that work well enough as long as we leave the bulbs in the socket. But when we put a bulb in, we may have to try several times before the socket makes contact. Only when the string lights up do we know we have been successful in seating a bulb. So if we are working on a dark string, we might find the bad bulb, and yet have the string still not light because several of the bulbs we re-seated are not making good contact.

Electric Travel Cooker, Sanyo RN-AVA308, will not heat up, where can I have it serviced?

I have the same unit and the same model number. Mine also not heat up. upon investigation I noticed the heating element has a 4 wires which I believe each pair (2 wires) meant for 100/120V and the other one is for 220/240V. I checked 2 wires (1 pair) has an open circuit while the other pair is ok. I directly connected the heating element to the power and it was heated up. I measured the resistance and it was around 78 ohm. from my lame calculation this is for 100/120V heating element. the 220/240V was busted.

Since mine on 220/240V power grid, to use the working 78 ohm heating element the estimated power would be P=VxV/R, around 738W which is way too high than the rated power (365W) for this voltage. I plan to add the dummy resistor 82 ohm + 78 ohm heating element to reduce its power around 370W. Hope it works.

Manual override no longer turns lights on/off

This sounds wrong. Normally Red would go to Live, Black to Neutral and White would go to the light but without more details of the model it's a guess

I have wired a new light fitting into our downstairs toilet however when I came to test it the light worked but half the other downstairs lights are now switched off when the toilet light is swithced off....

Probably put your family at risk of electricution . By connecting the live cables to earth you have effectivly made all the metal light fittings live. It is amazing that the fuse has not blown, This in itself is dangerous and you should have an electrician look at the wiring.
The correct wiring should be as follows.
Identify cables there should be 2 twin and earth (red black & copper earth) cables and 1 twin red and copper earth. (or 2 single red wires)
connect all copper earth wires suitably sheathed in green/yellow sleeving to earth lug.
Connect 2 black cables to neutral block.
Connect either single red (0r 1 of 2 reds) into live block.
connect remaining 3 reds into loop block.

Stinger Electronic Insect Killer Model# UVB45 will not work I put in a new light blub and it stll does not light up It was purchased on 5/05/09 at Home Depot. How do I return for repair?

Attached is a redesign for those interested in a permanent repair.
simply remove the old bulb and socket and starter. Purchase new standard rubberized bulb socket from Lowe's or Home Depot and connect with the socket and transformer primary in parallel. Neutral (white) to the white on the socket and the newly liberated black transformer (primary) wire. The Red or hot wire from the light-sense board then goes to the black on the socket. The other black from the transformer should already be connected to this wire. Purchase a blacklight bulb of the same type as the new energy saver flourescent bulbs in use in most homes. These can be found at specialty lighting stores and in some Home Depot or Lowe's stores. Place this new bulb in new socket and Voila. No more hassels!!!b12b882.jpg

1700 watt fog machine keep tripping GFC and blowing fog machine fuse

the fog machine needs to be on a dedicated line because of the wattage it does and the amp is rated as a 15 means the circuit breaker on this line needs to be 15 min safe at 20....
the fog machine is like a mircrowave and any major appliance needs dedicated lines not shared with lights or outlets besause it draws a lot of power to start and run and depends how long watts is simular to power the more light bulbs connect to a circuit breaker adds up 4 75w light bulbs adds up to 300 watts and that not includling outlets that may be connected....
not a gfci Unless dedicated at 20a....
