It seems kinda wierd that it just happens in mail but from what i can find it seems these computers have power issues and overheating issues. So the first thing to reccomend is that you try to keep the bottom of the computer up and off of anything so it won't get too hot. Also chek the power settings and if you can get to bios check and see if it has any warning systems or auto shutoff.

    The power setings are in the control panel in windows. To get there open the start menu and click on control panel. Upon some further research it won't be a problem in bios. Another thing to try is to update windows by going to this site= UPGRADES Beyond this it is a dell issue and might have something to do with their hardware and they will need to fix it

No water going to ice maker and water dispenser in the door. replaced the "dual water inlet valve" 2 weeks ago and thought the problem was solved. No problems until yesterday when the same thing start

If your water line to the refridge has a shutoff where it is connected into a house water line, this shutoff can become plugged up. A lot of them have a needle type shutoff that when screwed in shuts the water off. This is where the house line gets punctured. When screwed out this little hole can become plugged up.. Screw shutoff in and out a couple of times and if you can disconnect line from this shutoff. Then open the shutoff and see if you can get water out of it. This may allow you to flush the hole and debris out of the shutoff. Then reconnect line and see if this helps. If it happens again you may want to replace the shutoff valve with a new one.

I have a 12kw lp gas genwrator that starts and runs for about ten seconds and then shuts down.after maybe 25 tries doing this the generator will stay running and then i try and start it again and it will...

These type of gens have a low oil shutoff. Check the oil. Always have spare spark plugs, a cheap fix. My gen always wanted a new plug every year. Look to see if it has a fuel filter.

Shutting off water valve problems

Some shutoff valves are pretty marginal to start with, then they corrode. They can easily break if you put too much force on the handle. You are wise to be cautious. You will have to turn of the main water supply and then replace the toilet shutoff valve. You might be able to replace the shutoff valve yourself, depending on your skills and depending on how the shutoff valve is connected to pipe coming out of the wall or floor. But keep in mind that if you get in over your head you will have no water in the house until you get that new shutoff valve in place.
If you can describe what kind of pipe that shutoff valve is connected to I can help you understand if you should tackle it yourself.

After air compressor reach the max. pressure it starts losing air and now there is fluid in the gages. and when it tries to refill it shuts off

You may need to replace a leaking pressure-safety-valve. You may also need to drain water from the compressor tank (which should be a regular procedure). If the motor is a capacitor start type, the capacitor may have dried out and need replacement. If the capacitor becomes weak, the starting torque of the motor is reduced. If the motor just hums without starting, it builds up heat rapidly and a thermal shutoff switch removes power to the motor until it cools off. Hope this helps!

No instructions on programming auto shut-off time (feature listed on box).

You have to use the "Auto-Off" feature, which is located on the same button as on/off:
The automatic shutoff time (ASO) can be
programmed to shut off immediately after
brewing (0:00) or up to 4 hours later. The
default shutoff time is 2 hours.
Press and hold the On/Off button to display
current shutoff time. To change the preset
time, press and hold the On/Off button until
the red power light and LCD display begin to
flash. This signals that you have entered the
Set automatic shutoff mode. Set the time
you want coffee to begin brewing by
following the instructions in “Entering Time
Set Mode.”
When the coffeemaker shuts itself off, two
tones will sound.
NOTE: Automatic shutoff may be
programmed either before or during coffee
brewing. If you program the auto shutoff
time after brewing is completed the unit
will automatically account for elapsed time.
For example, if you set the auto shutoff for
40 minutes and 25 minutes have already
elapsed, the unit will shut off automatically
after 15 minutes (40 minutes minus the 25
elapsed equals 15 minutes).

Losing power to fuel shutoff relay

The power for the shutoff relay actually comes from a secondary winding on the ignition coil itself. Why the enging would shut the fuel pump off is that as the engine ran for a while the coil gets warm and then breaks down or opens up the circuit for the fuel shutoff relay. Fixed by replacing $85.00 coil.
