Power coming through but selector switch not working

Power is coming through but selector switch is not working. It has had periods of being very stiff to turn but now it is loose but is not working. I don't know what to do but would prefer not to call in a repair man as I am pensioner. I should be grateful for any help anyone can give me!

The stitch selector keeps turning , doesn't select stitch

1. Check for screws under the selectors outer ring. Tighten if loose
2. Check for loose screws on the front of the selector. The selector switch may have a cover to camouflage the screws. Tighten if loose.
3. If there are no screws the selector may just be pushed on. Pull forward to remove. It is possible the inside metal bracket is stripped from the plastic. Look for looseness of the center bracket.
4. Give the selector a thorough check for cracks. If you find cracks you will have to replace it.

These mixers last for years and years. Aside from the fact that you could have a FIRE from a frayed electrical cord, interruption of power to the motor can cause additional problems. Get the Manual with all of the details on repairing the unit. Replace that power cord NOW! When the Housing is open, take a tooth brush or stiff paint brush and whisk out the debris collected inside over time. Check the contacts on the speed selector and look for any black deposits or surface material that may be there.

2000 Ford E-250 appears to not be getting power to common blower relay terminal. Fan runs on all speeds when 12V is sent to blower motor. Why power loss to common relay terminal. IS there a way to ope

Not sure what a common relay terminal is.
The blower relay gets power from a 50amp fuse. Power goes to the blower motor and the resistor and speed switch provide the ground circuit. The on signal for the blower relay comes from the selector switch.

No reverse lights on 1995 chrysler cirrus

The red-blue wire is a direct link between the relay and the lights, there is nothing between the two components.
Is there power coming out of the relay for that wire ?
The b/w wire is power from the same fuse the shift selector switch is powered from. The red is power from the shift selector and the w/r is ground from the computer.

Wiring schematic for white-westinghouse window air conditioner/heater selector switch

I'm willing to bet that the heater is grounded. Probably burnt up the original switch, heater wasn't getting power, therefore not tripping the breaker. Now the switch works, heater gets power and immediately trips breaker. Unhook the switch and tape the wires, reset breaker and try in heat and cool. If no problems it's likely the heater.

My 2004 chevy impala dash lights wont come on bright gear selector will light up bright and stereo and then go dim.start car there bright then go dim but the speedometer or other dash lights will not light...

It is possible that it could be the key switch. Some connections or wiring might be lose in that area. Other than that it could be the wiring for the dashboard that could be loose. Loose wiring or loose ground may also cause this making it look like as if the power supplied by the battery is not enough. I would also check the dimming switch. It may also be loose or is going bad.

1) Check the imbalance/lid switch FOR continuity. Check also the speed selector switch (if any), the water level and water temperature switches for proper operation .
NOTE: If any of the selector switches on the console are only partially pushed in, it may cause improper function.
2) Check for a broken or badly worn belt.
3) Check the motor rollers and tension springs for damage and the motor roller tracks for jamming. Any of these might cause the belt to be loose.
4) Check the appropriate timer circuits for continuity.
5) Remove the belts and see if the motor will start. If you hear the motor buzzing, but it doesn't start in either or both directions, test the capacitor (if any) and starting switch
If it does start with the load removed, turn the pump and transmission pulleys by hand, in both directions, to see which is locked up. If the pump is locked, If the transmission pulley is locked,. Note that the transmission pulley will normally be very stiff when turning it in the clockwise direction, as you look at the bottom of the washer.

Hi - the problem is the selector switch mechanism behind the front panel as it has very poor clips to hold it in place on the printed circuit board behind it !!! Switch off at mains, remove front panel (3 crosshead screws behind drawer and 3 10mm bolts behind door - should have told you to open door before s/w mains off) - open the small panel at lower left and with a big screwdriver or similar press down spring clip - the door will then open - it may be a bit stiff because of the wiring loom.
Take a digital photograph of the p.c.b. behind the selector and then take all of the cable from the p.c.b. - unscrew abd remove and then you will see the round black plastic approx 50mm diameter and the 3 rather feeble clips holding it - simply press the whole firmly back in the board - and reassemble - hope this is OK for you
