As you do not mention make /age of machine and was this a sudden fault ? for now best to carry out the simple progress of elimination as to what is causing trip out to operate? start at the plug? check the wires in plug then wiring to machine motor for any damage to wires insulation? have you tried another appliance in the socket ? to see if ok? if trip operates then investigate socket ? any more info ? would help to advise on further options ?

Must I assume that a transformer has a PCB concentration of 500 ppm only if both the date of manufacture and the type of fluid are unknown?

Yes. You must characterize a natural gas pipeline system by analyzing
organic liquids collected at the condensate collection points (see §761.60(b)(5)(iii)). If there are no liquids present you must wipe sample in accordance with Subpart M, §761.250(a)(2). Select the proper sampling position along the pipe by following the directions in §761.247 (c) and (d). Then, according to §761.247(c)(3)(iii), if the entire population of pipe to be wipe sampled is porous and there are no non-porous surfaces available, assume that the pipe contains PCBs >50 ppm but <500 ppm and is PCB-Contaminated. Subsequently, an appropriate provision in §761.60(b)(5)(i) must be used to abandon the pipe. If you do not want to assume that the pipe is PCB-Contaminated, then you may apply for an alternate sampling plan under §761.61(c).

My zanussi dehumidifier's tank full light comes on and the machine stops wehen the tank is practically empty. Is there any easy way to fix this problem myself

Most dehumidifiers have a switch near the top right of the tank or left. When the tank gets full it tips out a bit and trips the switch to turn it off and light the indicator. Make sure the tank is sitting properly as I have done this before, and had the same problem, or check and adjust the sensor(if possible) to fix the problem. The tank not sitting right can cause it to trip the switch with a mostly empty tank.

How to reset my zanussi

Switch off the machine for a while. Check for moisture in the panel, check for any capacitor leak in the mains circuit. If you have a multimeter check the voltage to the controller section.
Also check the door switch, the inlet flow valve filter and the connectors.
If all these seems fine there are errors in the controller board section.

Zanussi washing maching keeps tripping trip switch

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

Sorry but with such a major fault it is virtually impossible for anybody on this forum to remotely guess what is wrong with your washer.

It could be internal wiring/plugs sockets, control panel switches, control PCB.
I fear that you only real option is a service call as the engineer will have the right equipment to safely diagnose what is wrong.
Sorry again and good luck,
John C
