This is a good workhorse printer -- I serviced these for many years.

You can try cleaning the paper feed rollers with a rag moistened with a little white spirit. This helps remove the paper dust build-up that glazes the rollers and prevents them from gripping the paper.

Eventually, as the rollers become worn, (or, if they are already too worn) you will have to replace them.

My sunshade is jamming on the way back into the housing (automated system) causing the shade to fall down in folds.

more than likely u lost the spring tension. whatever you do. do not try to take it apart, if there is any tension at all. it will come undone and you can and will lose fingers. you can wind it up but need to know what the manufacturers name is and size of awning...

Instructions for operating rv awning

Manual or electric. If electric press the switch located inside the unit. If manual, you will need to go to each arm and press the release clips to unlock the arms (usually black but may be a lift up lock). Next tank the long rod with a loop on one end and a 90 deg hook on the other. Toward the front of the coach at the top of the awning you will see a small lever on the awning. Use the loop end of the rod to pull the lever down. Take the other end of the rod and insert it into the black strap that should be barely hanging down and pull down as you back away. This should pull the awning out. Once pulled out all the way, go to each end of the awning. Close to the wall of the RV there should be an arm hanging down with a knob on the back of it. Grab the bottom of the arm and slide it out and clip it into the end of the extended awning arm. Push down on the lower arm to tighten the fabric and then tighten the knob. Once both ends have been tightened then on the lower arm there will be a pull out handle in the middle, pull it out to release the lock pin and lift the outer portion of the lower arm up to raise the awning to the desired height. Repeat for the other end. If it is raining or windy put the awning away. DO NOT LEAVE IT OUT! The wind will catch it like a kite and rip it off of your trailer. Rain will fill it up like a swimming pool and collapse the center tube and trap you inside of the RV.

My videocon fully automatic washing machine (45FDx) is 7 years old. It is continuously showing E2 error. I have called the company technician but not of much use. Can u help pleae?

This can be due to a error in the control panel, You can switch off, remove the front panel and check for moisture on the panel, if so use a dryer to ward off the moisture. Also check the connections on the board. If the fault reoccurs then you might need to replace the panel board.Make sure the door switch, inlet valve and drains are clean.

How many winds on the tension spring for a dometic 9100 series awning for initial setting? I heard 1-2 feet out from coach, wind 13 times is standard

up to 12ft long awning = 8 turns
13-14 ft = 9 turns
15-16 ft = 10 turns
16.5 - 18ft. = 12 turns
19 ft-up = 13 turns.

Be real careful, !!! seen many a finger/hand injured if not experienced.

Have an awning with control panel model no

I'm not sure why you are asking this question; assuming you have aready looked for a manual winding feature. Some models have a cover plate that must be removed to access the manual wind device, however you will need a winding crank/handle that fits into the wind device. As far as the auto mechanism not working, 1st check to see if the electic is still coming to the unit ( was there any disruption to the electric line or wall work that would make the line be disconnected or the circuit breaker ? If you still have problems, l please return with a more detailed list of what you tried and what is/is not happening..
Good luck, Macgivor

Awning motor just hums

I had the same problem with 2 Somfy motors within the same week.

The motor hummed and roared, but didn't turn. Sometimes, after it cooled down it started rotating, but stopped when the load started, Other times, would stat, but then changed the rotation direction and then stoped.

The awning company wanted to charge me ~ $600 for each new motor. They said Somfy does not fix motors, but only replaces them with new.

So, I opened the motor myself:
  1. I opened the 2 screws on each side of the tube's motor end.
  2. I pulled the plastic cover out with the plastic cogs assembly.
  3. I then pulled out the capacitor.

I noticed that the motor start capacitor "exploded". So, I bought a new one for $10, replaced it (no soldering is required), and assembled it back again.

The motor runs great now for less than 2% of the requested motor price.
