Ice maker is not ejecting the ice cubes

We have a fairly new side-by-side model (one year or so)
Don't know the exact model #, but it's one of the following:
54543500, 54534400, 54536400, 54539400,
54542400, 54544400, 54546400, 54549400
The ice maker is not ejecting the ice cubes into the tray.
It makes them, starts to rotate to eject them, but then stops there.
We melted the ice, dried it. New ice was made, with same result.

Any suggestions?

What other engines can swap into my 1996 Nissan Pathfinder? I need a new engine but don't know what models/years I can put into my Pathfinder with the least amount of mods.

With all the computers and electronics, programmed or designed for the factory engine that is in it, be careful to get the Nissan designated engine type or descriptor exact same as yours. Auto salvagers have an interchange data base- they should be able to tell you where else to look. Probably a narrow field, I doubt anything before '96 would work, that was when new emission regulations went into place. I recall one swapper saying get the same exact engine, and same year or you'll be doing modifications work.

I don't have an owners manual in front of me but I think that is exactly what is supposed to happen. I had a brand new 2006 a few years back and that is what it did. If you want to make sure, call a Chrysler dealership, but I think you have no problem.

Need to know what I should pay for a used one of these models

Don't really get a clear idea of what you are asking, I assume you mean a window mounted unit.

The answer is... it depends. Not only does the cost of a used window mount air conditioner vary with condition, but also with the BTU rating and its energy efficiency.

A 12500 BTU window mounted air conditioner, in good working order (enough to cool up to a 400 square foot room on a sunny day with average insulation would probably be a fair buy in the neighborhood of 75-140 dollars if it was a fairly recent model. If it is over 5 years old, I wouldn't buy a used one. These things are made cheaply for the most part, they are installed over and over again year after year, if you take care of them they can last a good while, however most people don't get a great deal of time out of them without some sort of issue arising.

Yes looking for pdf files and how to determine where transleak is 1. leaking on right side as your on it belt side 2. when warmed up and driving loud squeel from same side loosend belt and was better...

Well, you're about going to have to tear the bike down to a certain degree to find out exactly where the leak is. You do have a bearing and seal on that side behind the front belt pulley. Or, it could be that your neutral indicator switch is leaking. To see a breakdown, go to You may have to check on several year models to find a drawing as they don't show all year models because they were the same. In that area, any bike between 1994 and 1999 will be the same.

Good Luck

Find spare and repair manual for intrepid wood stove

Alex, I don't know how old your Vermont Castings Intrepid wood stove is, but the only available Owner's Manual is for their fairly new model Intrepid II wood stove.

A little quick history. Vermont Castings was an independent company 10 years ago, that was bought up by Majestic (FMC) Fireplace Company of Canada. About 5 years ago, Majestic went belly up and the VC line was purchased by Monesson Hearth Products. There have been some improvements to their wood stoves in the past couple of years, so as to meet the new EPA Requirements. So, this manual may show some things your stove doesn't have.

Hope this helps you. Please let me know. Thanks.

Everything works except the microwaves nothing heats It has worked well for quite a few years

Hello there and thank you for choosing fixya
This is a fairly common problem on the older microwaves
There is a part inside of the microwave that is called the megetron this what heats up the food and they do go out after time so i would have to tell you to first if you can remove the power to the microwave then on the back of the unit remove all of the screws that are along the edges then remove the side screws then the cover should slide back about 1 to 2 inches then come off
Now since i do not know th exact make and model of the microwave i cant get you a exact picture but here is what one looks like tbirdfan1_11.gif
simply remove the 2 wires form it and remove the part and get a new part and reinstall then replace the cover and test ok?
Hope this is very helpful for you
Best regards Mike
