FixYa won't show any answers it just wants me to be an expert

I just signed up for FixYa, and it shows me lists of answer to the problem with my washer, but when i click them I just get it offering me to be an expert. It makes me angry to be so close to learning something.... I hate this site.

Does fixya reward members for answering questions?

In the time that I have been answering questions I have received a whole 5 dollars. They do have programs that you can sign up for to provide telephone technical support. But just answering questions here will really only give you the satisfaction of having helped someone out. I am a top 10% printer expert on this site, just to give you an idea. My current stats show 307,679 people helped.

The knob has nothing to do with question i asked i need to size size of wire for power

1) Copy following link for live answer Dec 2012 to figure correct wire size

2) Fixya posts 'recommended' answers based on computer guessing what you asked. Look for date on each answer.
Recommended answers can be totally unrelated, but sometimes they are spot on. These answers were posted by experts over previous years, and now fixya owns the work done by others and uses that work to answer questions that live expert does not answer.

3) This particular Question was posted under 'Chrome timer knob set,' and somehow ended up among timer questions. Each expert answers questions by expertise such as timer, water heater, electric wiring etc.
Often the questions do nor show a product or clearly state what answer is needed. People do not always know what they are asking for. That's why fixya is here: to help sort out possible answers.
So the expert sometimes guesses at answer, or the computer guesses which recommended answers to post.

4) Add a comment for live follow-up, Dec 2012

How do you answer questions that appear in the Search section of the iPhone app? There are some that definitely have alternative answers that the user may appreciate. I just don't see the "solve it" b

I can't remember exactly how I started answering questions.
1) You can contact fixya. Do a google seach for 'contact fixya?'
Here is long answer:
2) I think I began in the following way: Down at bottom of page are categories, example such as computers and electronics.
Select a category and a page comes up with subset of topics.
Click on one of those subsets, and another page comes up showing more specific list of products, with 'problems/solutions.'
Select problems. And a list of problems comes up, and these are usually dated, and not the current list of problems.
Click one of the problems:
Start answering these problems, and fixya monitors the quality of answers.
3) At some point I discovered 'My Home' page by clicking on my sign-in name at top right corner of page.
Was it always there? Maybe, and I just didn't notice.
Currently, I click on my name to arrive at 'My Home'
And the My Home link appears on left side of page short ways down from top of page.
My Home is evidently unique to my IP address, and sign in.
Maybe you have that page already.
Below link for My Home is link for Answer, My products, My Friends.
I click on Answer link and expanded menu appears with general topic categories. And a full list of current questions appears.
Or click on a topic from the expanded menu, and list of current questions appears about the specific topic.
Click on any question to read the question, and below question is answer box where you answer current question.
Many times the questions are posted under products that have nothing to do with the question. For example automotive questions posted under water heaters. etc
I do not control what questions are filtered to my IP address, but am reasonably certain that I see a selected number of questions asked under that category.
4) How do you find a specific question that was asked and answered before, so that you can add a comment?
Contact fixya?
Otherwise, I don't know. Unless you google search the exact same question, and the link at fixya shows up in the search parameter, and then you can add a comment.
5) Add a webpage to your website that is titled exactly like the question, and maybe google will link to that page.

After 5 minutes the unit shuts down with an error of C8 13.

Typical manual shows error C8 13 on page 33:
Has to do with air intake, air quality, air shortage, air filter, or internal parts, or combination of internal and external factors

Typical manual also shows regular maintenance on page 29.
The word maintenance is used throughout manual.
Tankless are prone to lime build-up and should be de-limed each year, and cannot be exposed to more than 11 grains of hardness in the water.

Open following link to see list of UN-answered fixya questions about Rheem tankless:
Older question tend to have answers that might be helpful for you to read.

Research shows that regular de-liming will not restore full efficiency to tankless water heaters:

Since all costs are energy, if you get tired of messing with tankless.

My fairly new dx605 is showing everything grren on

Thanks for your question!

I'm sorry that you haven't received an answer yet.

The response rate on FixYa FREE questions is usually over 80%, but sometimes questions go un-answered when:
1. the question is unclear, incomplete, or poorly worded...
2. the question is mis-categorized - so the correct experts aren't viewing it...
3. the question requires an answer for something that cannot be explained online adequately...
4. specific training, tools, or equipment are required to avoid injury or death...
5. the Experts that are online simply don't have the resources to answer your question fully...

Please feel free to re-work your question if you feel one of these may be the reason.
Of course you are not required - but converting your question to a PAID one usually increases the reply rate as well.

$ 9.99 answer for one question.
$12.99 Live Real-Time online chat or premium e-mail support.
$29.99 Live Real Time phone support
Sometimes FixYa will run specials for unlimited questions via monthly subscription or reduced rates for limited periods.

Consider the savings that can be had when an informed Expert can save you a $100 service call, or a $350 trip to the car dealership.
Your problem solved - guaranteed! Or your money back!!

If you don't want to pay - feel free to re-submit your question so it returns back to the top of the work queue if you still need help.

What is FixYa about? How can I contribute? Will I get paid for it?

Fix Ya is all about helping consumers troubleshoot the problems they encounter with their gadgets and devices. In their words, they say they provide “free tech support and technical help for gadgets, electronics equipment and consumer products.” Just a few weeks ago it was announced that Best Buy and Geek Squad would be partnering up with FixYa. Instead of bringing your computer in to Best Buy to get it fixed, you may be able to ask your question on FixYa and have it answered for free.
Who Answers Your Questions? If you’re wondering who it is that provides expert advice for the devices you own, it’s a team about about 30,000 different contributors. These contributors are average people like you who happen to know a little something about gadgets. Anybody can can suggest a solution for a problem that someone has posted, and then the community of FixYa rates the solution given as either “inappropriate,” “thanks for trying,” “helpful,” or “FixYa!” which is the best.
fixya.jpg Topics covered… You’re not going to find answers to your question about which brand of ketchup you should buy or what the best place to eat in San Francisco is. What you will find though is a huge list of different manufactures who make gadgets, electronics, and consumer products like Acer, Compaq, Epson, IBM, Insignia, Motorola, Panasonic, and more. In all, there are over 800,000 different consumer products covered.
Signing up for an account FixYa is free, unless you want “Premium Assistance” in which case it will cost. But then you’ll be guaranteed to get an answer via a post or Live Chat.
Features Other features at FixYa include:
  • WikiManuals – product guides written and edited by FixYa users
  • Experts Lounge- where FixYa experts meet to share what’s on their minds
  • Repair Directory – for locating a repair service near you
  • Manufacturer directory – for finding a specific manual and/or products
Becoming an expert: Anybody can become an expert by filling out a form found here, and you can even get paid. Of course not everybody is an expert in every field, so you just let them know which areas you’re an “expert” in.
Searching for Answers Searching for answers for your products is simple because everything is broken down into brands and then products. On their homepage on the bottom right you’ll see a list of brands broken down in alphabetical order. I clicked on Garmin, then I was able to browse through the list of different Garmin products to find the unit I own, the Garmin Nuvi 660. Once I found it, I could click on and then do the following:
  • search the Garmin Nuvi 660 GPS receiver knowledgebase
  • view problems/questions that have solutions
  • view problems/questions that don’t have a solution yet
  • post a new problem
  • subscribe to the product page via RSS
  • view tips and tricks (one tip in particular which explained how to do a full reset to original factory status was helpful)
  • view the WikiManual (if available)
  • See manuals and guides (if available)
  • View product specifications
  • View contact information
