Try this it may help
the amp body may need to be grounded in addition,
try screwing it to contact a metal surface or run the ground wire to the amp body and then loop it to ground terminal have fun

DRYER WONT STOP RUNNING


IT may be ,The heating element has broken. This element is contained within a "drum" at the lower right of the machine (front view, front panel removed). Test to confirm problem - remove both wires (one white, one black) from the "drum" (porcelain standoff, 3/8" wrench brass nut). Attach a multi-meter to one exposed brass screw and to a ground with multimeter set on ohm test (conductivity test - touch meter tips and meter jumps). Test both brass screws this way. If the meter jumps on either test, the element is "grounded" (broken and touching ground). This confirms the problem. Further confirmation - Remove the two screws at the base of the circular "cover" at the front end of the heating drum. Lift the cover and with flashlight, examine the heating coils.

How to i find out whats wrong with my bazooka tube i tried to hook it up to a car battery and car stereo out side but wont work ???


follow this steps and fix it. GOd bless you

  • Verify that the amplifier is turning on by looking to see that it is lit up.

  • 2
    Use a voltmeter to verify your power supply is a good 12 volts by touching the ground lead to you amplifier's ground screw and the positive one to the amplifier's constant power supply screw. Also verify that you have 12 volts coming from the remote lead wire which is usually a thin blue wire between the ground and constant 12 volt supply.

  • 3
    Look for the "thermal overload" light. It is usually a red LED on the side of the amp. If the amp feels really warm and this light is lit, the amp has probably overheated from being tuned wrong or turned up too loud and shut itself down to cool off.

  • 4
    Check the fuses on the amplifier. These can blow with extended use or during heavy bursts of use.

  • 5
    Make sure the "Gain" and other volume controls are turned up.

  • 6
    Confirm that the signal wire is still attached to the amplifier and has not come disconnected by vibrations in the car. Also check that the wires running out of the amp to the speakers are still attached to the amp.

We have a ge electric water heater - last night we set a new jug of detergent on top of it over the electric plate on the top of the unit - it had a hole ( small leak) in the bottom - it leaked all night...


You flooded water heater wiring compartment with detergent, and the wires were shorting so you turned off power and cleaned detergent. Now water heater doesn't work.

1) The heat from shorting might have tripped ECO reset button.
Open top cover on water heater, and push in red reset ECO button.

Be sure to re-install insulation and cover.

Other steps:
2) Turn off power. Remove wire nuts. Cut off copper ends of wire, and re-strip each wire so fresh copper shows. Make sure no detergent is on the copper. Use new wire nuts and twist very tight against copper wire.
3) Cut back burned ground wire. Remove ground screw and clean thoroughly. And then reattach clean copper to ground screw.
4) Turn power back on.

5) If water heater still does not work, then test across top two screws on upper thermostat for correct voltage.

Lights under micro do not turn off all of the time but some of the time. Finger sensitive pad does not register 0, 7, 8.; most of the time.


sounds like your touch pad is bad. if its under a year old. call for warranty service.if not you may need to order a touch pad. its not too hard to replace. remove power, take tho screws off the top of the micro holding the top vent cover on. remove the vent cover. above the touch pad is a screw, remove that screw and lift the Assembly up and it will tip out. be careful because you don't want to damage any wires. you can label and disconnect the wires to completely remove the Assembly.good luck!

Saturn 2001 LW-300 Saturn blower motor will sometimes work and sometimes not work. Do you think it is blower or resistor or switch


Most of the time this has to deal with a poor ground connection. Everything around the motor is plastic so the ground wire is the only place the motor ground. I gave up trying to find the problem connection and attached a secondary ground to the motor and fixed it. U get to the motor under the hood in between wipers. Remove filter -remove 4 screws on blower cover. The blower slides out. attach a ground wire on the rear screw on the motor. Find a good ground for that wire & your done. I put a small hole under the blower and attached it to the frame ground right behind radio. Any good ground will work.

Ground wire has burned plastic cover on my amp


what type of terminal is on the amp. screw or slip on type?

The plastic does not carry any type of ground. If your ground wire was melted, that means you have a 'hot' wire shorting across the ground somehow causing a short. This causes excessive heat like an 'arc' welder.

You might want to check your power wire to make sure its not making any contact to ground. Make sure any foreign debris is not causing a 'bridge' between the 2 posts.

If your terminals (or place where you hook up power and ground wires) are in good shape, re-wire and turn on the unit.

Amp doesnt turn


If the power wires have been reversed it can cause it to do that. if the positive wire touched any other metel on the amp than the positive it could have damaged the amp. If the amp is screwed down to any part of the body it wont hurt it.Check to make sure the remote wire has enough voltage to startup the amp .you can disconnect the remote wire take a jumper wire and jump the positive and remote inputs on the amp. If that resolves the problem than the voltage on the remote wire is to low to activate the amp.

No power amd will not drain


This has happened a few times with mine. Turns out, it was a loose ground wire. Here's how to check it: Remove bottom panel (4 screws). In the front(bottom) on the right side there is the electrical connection box. Remove the top screw of the cover and the cover will drop down. There is a screw directly in front on the back of the box. That is the ground connection. Red wire for mine. The screw on mine would only go half way in. Therefore the ground wire was loose causing it to loose power. I replaced with a better screw and it powered back on instantly. Make sure you shut off the breaker before doing this. Good Luck.
