Question about Presto HeatDish Compact Heater

1 Answer

Once it heats up the warning blaring sound comes on

This is the older model without the footlight. It heats up well, but left on, it will give out the loud warning blare that is designed to go off if you bump into when it is on. Turning it off or down very low makes the sound go away, but then it comes back on as it heats up again. I think the signal switch or something must be bad. Can I fix this? Or disable the warning buzzer?

Had a similar issue. I think if you pull the plug, remove the cover (about 4X6) inches and inspect all wires and connections you will find your culprit. Look for evidence of arcing at a connection. If evidence of arcing is present the terminal must be thouroughly cleaned and maybe a new lug attached to the wire.

Dell XPS 200 Computer shuts off leaving blinking amber light

3 most common solutions to your problem are:
  1. Bad power supply; once it heats up will quit without warning
  2. Bad heatsink/fan; processor heats up and will lock up your Pc
  3. Bad motherboard
Try opening the machine and give the inside a thorough cleaning, paying special attention to the heatsink and fan. Once clean and you've ensured the fan is operating, put it back together and see if your problem is fixed. If not, a new power supply will likely fix your problem. Best of luck.

Microwave not heating food

It's most likely the Magnetron. The are not very easy to install and quite expensive. Older models magnetrons cost about 80 bucks from GE. It's probably not something you would want to try and repair yourself. Call a GE service person.

Presto Heat Dish w/footlight

This heater must be flat on the floor or it will buzz, and the metal dish must be clean or it will transfer heat to the safety device. If this does not solve the problem call customer service at 800-877-0441.

No sound when first turned on.

i have an amplifier ONKIO too and my generation is older than yours but i'm the same probleme and it's normal if you use this amplifier to your speakers. the internal switch must be heat to give a normal sound without distorsion. it's the principal problem of the onkio amplifier but after the quality of thr sound is great
so take the time and be patient now you know you have to start on your amplifier 5mn before use :)

Vizio 42" LCD HDTV audio issues

First of all go into the audio menu settings and turn off the "surround" feature off and that should fix the voices/music differences. Does the craking sound appear while watching any sorce such as cable box,sat rcvr or DVD player? If not isolate it to that input and maybe that device is giving the problem.
