Plug sockets only failing

Once again I woke this morning only to find that the plug sockets and I assume all them had failed during the course of the night. Lights ok. On the fuse board all showed ok but for one switch that was off and when turned to on all was ok. This problem is happening more often and I want to know how do I locate the culprit easily. My theory it is either my fridge freezer or gas boiler, because both run during the night and call for more electricity when either needs to be cooled down or water to be heated.

The age of the electric wiring could be an issue. I suspect a bad or loose connection at the recepticals. If appliance plug- in results in a loose connection,( IE: Plug falls out ). Replace the duplex recepticals as needed. Also check wiring connections to be sure they are tight.

Amana NTW4600YQ0, nothing happens when start switch is pressed. No lights, no clicks or lights. What could it be?

THE FIRST place to look is the fuse. Try replacing this first .If this fails check the connections in the plug. If this fails try cutting a couple of inches off the leads and rewiring the plug/ If the plug is a moulded on type it must of course replaced with a standard type. these moulded plugs are often the cause of the problem anyway. If this fails try a different socket . Even on same wall pallet sometimes one goes faulty. If neither of them work go to a known live socket and try again. Sometimes complete replacement of complete lead need replaced but doing the shortening trick at the machine end ( same as st plug end ) can do the trick. If none of these works look for fuse/s inside the machine. After this one has to look for switch faults on the machine. After that try spraying W.D.40 or a switch cleaner into switch. Next step is replace the switch . If not sure how to do this GET HELP. this applies to all. steps beyond this. Unless you can see corroded ,broken or disconnected wires and terminals which can be cleaned mende oe reconnected. The reason for cutting off lengths of lead is that the wires can break inside the insulation and cutting back removes the broken section. Further tests are needed beyond this and a competent person to carry them out Sorry I cannot do more from here

My speakers haven't been working properly for a while and I was wondering how to fix this. They sometimes work (very rarely) but then they just cut off, the music will still be playing but I won't be

If it always works with headphone - without fail - then it is likely the fault is within the headphone socket. You'll appreciate that when you plug in headphone, the speakers in the laptop are cut off - which is a mechanical break in connection caused by the plug. Sadly, it sounds like it is staying disconnected.

What does it mean if I start my mazda 626 and the plug shoots out and the vehicle shakes

I assume you mean the spark plug. What it means is that the spark plug stripped out it's holder threads in the head, the head is now junk unless you can do a correct helicoil tap, or better yet, you replace the head, and How the HECK did you manage to pull that off!? That's insane! BTW: Once again, assuming you mean the spark plug, the shaking is because one cylinder is not firing, so the normally near-even firing, at least one power stroke creating power at once, is not working, and it has no torque during that time. The next power stroke sends torque down the crank, which rapidly accelerates again, shaking during that acceleration.

Hotpoint wma46 fuse blew in the plug replaced it now no power at machine no lights come on or anything.could u help.thanks

I assume you have tried the plug in another socket to prove if socket is o/k.
If still no power, then I would suspect that the control module has failed at he top of the washer.
You will have to remove top cover to gain access to it.
