KITCHENAID PROFESSIONAL 9 HAND MIXER JUST WON'T TURN ON. As if it's blown a fuse. It wasn't under load or anythig just pulled it out and it wouldn't turn on? Is it fused inside? Or did electronics die?

Fixed it! Hit 2x's hard with my hand by the switch and it turned on. Sounds like Kitchenaid might have a safety issue if the wires are loose or it has a bad swittch! i'VE SEEN OTHERS WITH SIMILAR/SAME PROBLEM POSTED ON THE WEB.

Hit it as it appears a wire may have been loose or some other connectivity problem. (Use a bigger hammer fix)

My BSA A65 engine dies when I turn o0n the headlamp switch. Now the bike won't start and I have no lights working?

Sounds as if you have a short circuit in the headlamp circuit. While this could be anywhere, most likely a pinched wire somewhere you have removed and reinstalled some part. The seat? Replaced headlamp bulb? As to no longer starting, you may have blown a fuse due to the short.

The pins on my intermatic timer are pulled up for 2 days. why is the timer allowing the sprinklers to come on every day?

R8816P101C manual:

I think it is more likely sprinkler valve is stuck than timer contacts are fused together.
This is because Intermatic mechanical timers physically pull and push contacts together-apart.
Take trippers all the way out and see if that changes.
Turn off 240V circuit breaker and see if that changes.
Add a comment and let me know what you find.

Usually you see trippers worn down and the sprinkler does not turn on.
Or WG733-14D 240V clock motor slows or stops, then dial will not rotate.
Sometimes the 133T115A toggle goes bad.

We purchased an Everstar pre-lit Christmas Tree and we can not locate the manual or instructions that came with the tree any help since half the tree doesn't light up and all the plugs are plugged in....

Millie, Get an extension cord. Unplug all of the plugs, then test each one individually with your extension cord. You may have just one cord that is bad, and you can isolate it this way. It is probably a blown fuse in that one set. The male end of the bad set (the end with the two metal prongs) probably has a plug that pulls apart to reveal two small fuses inside. Look at the plug closely, it isn't obvious that it opens. The fuses are little glass cylinders with a metal cap on each end. If you can't tell by looking at the fuses if they are blown, then you can switch them with other known good fuses to be sure before you go search for new fuses. Good luck and Merry Christmas. Al K

Liftmaster Professional and Clicker Programming Problems

The Security+ system is a rolling code system and is digital, so it will work with the Homelink in vehicles and with the remote control units that come with the opener. Also with new remotes that are purchased specifically for that opener. Your "clickers" require specific instructions and you need to use the Smart Learn function in order to use them with this opener. In addition, check the Brand Switch settings to be sure they apply to your opener, and the correct Smart Button color on the opener. Read carefully to determine whether you need to set ANY dip switches at all or can you just set them all to off depending on your opener? Check the instructions carefully. Here's a link to the page where you can download a copy of the Clicker instructions if you don't already have it:

Switch will not turn on disposal

under the sink you will probably find an electrical outlet with the disposal cord plugged in. If so, plug another item into the outlet like a blow dryer to be sure you have power to the outlet. If you have no power the problem is a tripped breaker or a blown fuse. First check all of the plugs in the kitchen area including under the sink to determine if you have a ground fault circuit interrupter outlet. If you do, it may be tripped. If it is tripped simply reset it.

If you know you have power to the disposal then check to be sure no spoon or other hard object isn't in the disposal preventing it from operating. Use a flash light to check this. If there is no obstruction look on the case of the disposal for a reset button. good luck.

My tenant was complaining taht he was getting a shock when he touched a Leviton 104-05611-2WS 15A Decora Single Pole switch for a bedroom closet. My problem is I now cannot figure out how to reconnect the...

The three black wire are as follows: One is the hot wire. One feeds the closet light. One feeds the lights for the kithen and bath. Turn off the power at the circuit breaker or fuse panel and disconnect all three black wires and be sure they aren't touching anything. Turn the power back on and using a test light or meter determine which black wire is live. Turn the power back off and mark the hot wire with a pen, marker, or piece of electrical tape. Connect the wire you marked with a wire nut to one of the other two black wires. Turn the power back on. If the closet light comes on, that is the wire that you want to connect to one of the terminals of the switch. If the lights in the kitchen and bath now work, leave these wires connected together and connect the third wire to one of the switch terminals. Turn the power back off. While the hot wire and the wire for the kitchen might have both connected to the switch terminal, this is no longer allowed by code. Instead take another piece of wire of the same type and connect it to the hot wire and the kitchen wire with the wire nut and connect the other end to the other switch terminal. There should be a green ground screw terminal attached to the metal frame of the switch. Using a green or bare copper wire connect this to the ground wires in the switch box. Reinstall the switch and turn the power back on. Everything should be good now. If the fuse blows or the breaker trips, replace the switch.
