Sorry it took so long to help you. You should have returned the Clock/Radio to the place of purchase for exchange. The Clock/Radio has had problem with component failure. This is probably happen during its shipping from china to the USA. This does happen unfortunately. Shipping can be the cause of many problem with electronic equipment. Thank you for using FixYa and have a nice day.

Clock resetting and power button malfunctioning on my Gateway NV53A laptop.


Replace the CMOS battery. In the Control Panel, Power Options, set to High Performance, open Advanced power settings, set Sleep and Hibernate to Never, Adjust other settings to your preference. Set Screen Saver Time. Always turn off the computer and unplug when not in use, it will prolong life and a reboot every day will reset the computer. I would say you have a issue with the outlet connections/plug. If you have a multimeter you can verify.

Westek TE06WHB Timer has been plugged in to charge for over 5 hours now and still now LCD display. It won't let me set the clock or program


Some of these timers use actual battery instead of rechargeable battery. Check back of timer for a battery door.

Press the reset button and see if this resolves the issue.

Check outlet polarity using circuit analyzer.
Plug timer into another outlet.
Turn on light switch controlling outlet.
See if a light works on same outlet.
Check circuit breaker.
This timer has 1 year warranty against defects in workmanship.
I suggest always buying timers at local store for ease of possible return.
Lowes and Target sell same/similar timer under different brand name. Buy new timer and return defect in new package.

The ck the Outlet w/ a proper tester (cheap @ builders supply, just a plug in tester w/ lite for volts.... too easy. 3. If neither of these work, find the fuse for the microwave & replace. If not qualified, hire or ask someone who is.... 4. none of these work..... time to buy a new one. gettocar

While running in a screw to install a new electrical outlet cover, the outlet made a small pop and the lights flickered but immediately came back on. I plugged in the unit to see if it worked and nothing...


You say the unit is 220 volt, but the plug you installed has a white wire which is normally on a 120 volt outlet. A 220 volt outlet would have 2 black wires and ground. If you do have 220 there, and the reset does no good, I've seen those resets(they are basically built in GFI) blow out and had to bypass/put different chord on. there are fuses on the control board but I would check that last

Curling Iron will not turn on.


Lots of interesting problems in the Shavers category :)
Make sure you plugged it in. (I know, seems like a no-brainer, but you'd be surprised how many times this is the cause of a problem!) If it is plugged in, and it still doesn't work, try plugging in a lamp or something else by which you can make sure the outlet is operable. If the outlet works, return your iron or buy a new one. If the outlet doesn't work, try using a different one. Otherwise, you're going to have to get into fuses/circuit breakers, ets, or call an electrician. Good luck!

Brand new Unit turns off out of the blue after some minutes of use with no apparent reason to do so.


First, make sure it's not a problem with the outlet the unit is plugged into. You can test the outlet by plugging in a lamp. If the outlet is not working, check your home's circuit breaker panel for a tripped breaker switch. Be sure nothing is still plugged into the outlet, when you reset it. Then plug the AC Unit back in, to see if it turns ON and runs as it should, for longer than a few minutes. If it trips the breaker again, either the circuit is overloaded (with some other electrical appliance on the same circuit) or the Circuit Breaker doesn't have the capacity to handle the AC unit,

Worse case scenario is that there is an electrical malfunction in the brand new AC unit. In which case, before you go hustling of to the store to return it, read the Owner's Manual to make sure that you did everything right the first time. If you're truly satisfied that you did, return it to the place of purchase, along with your Proof of Purchase, for an exchange or a refund.

Hope this helped you to troubleshoot and solve the problem. Please let me know. Thanks.

Everstar mpm2-10cr-bb6 will not reset on power cord. light on reset doesn't light. seems like no power is getting to the unit.


Check the outlet that the unit is plugged into, to be sure that it is in fact, working. The circuit breaker in your home's circuit breaker panel for that outlet, may have tripped. Also, the outlet may have interior damage or a loose wire connection. If the unit seems not to be getting power, one of the above is the problem. Try plugging the unit into another outlet in a different room.

Hope this helps you troubleshoot and solve the problem.

THE T V WILL NOT POWER ON


plug the cord into the outlet. If the wall outlet doesn't work find a different one. If the tv doesn't turn on with the remote take the plastic off of the batteries in the remote. if this all doesn't work, then there's something wrong with the tv and you should return it and get a new one.

The Wave Radio uses the AC power cord as an antenna. Perhaps the two outlets are wired differently regarding ground and hot.

NOTHING TURNS ON, PLUG IS OK SAID ELECTRICAN


If you have plugged the tub into another outlet and the jets work fine, it is not a control module problem. The tub should be plugged into a gfci outlet. If it is, there may be a reset switch on the plug it is plugged into, or there may be a switch somewhere else in your bathroom that has the reset switch on it. You can buy a tester for about $3 or $4 that plugs into your outlet to test if it has power. Hope this helps.
