The is a DC jack, requires a resolder back to the mainboard. Jack cost about 10$ but are you comfortable with soldering? If not it is a little bit of an expensive repair.

A special fuel filter must be on the end of the fuel lines going into the tank, the line should be long enough for the filter to move around by gravity to stay in the fuel as the tank empties.

Heat Trap Nipple which side into the tank


Don't install heat trap nipples if house has pressure issues, or pipes get clogged with hard water.
Heat traps will clog, and whistle, hum, buzz, and reduce household pressure.
Make your own heat traps by configuring pipes differently.
http://waterheatertimer.org/9-ways-to-save-with-water-heater.html#heat-trap
http://waterheatertimer.org/Low-hot-water-pressure.html#trap

Buy regular di-electric nipples at local box store plumbing department instead of heat trap nipples.
http://waterheatertimer.org/images/IMG_1879-di-electric-nipple-300.jpg

If you go ahead and install the heat-trap nipples, look inside the nipple.
Look past the plastic bar that divides down middle.
Notice that one end has insert inside the pipe. While other end does not have insert.
End with insert goes into water heater first.

Notice also if you blow into the heat trap nipple that air flow is constricted.
If air flow is constricted, then water will also be constricted.
This is why heat trap nipples are not recommended.

Why do they have heat trap nipples??
So manufacturers can report higher EF energy efficiency rating for product.

Do heat traps save money. Yes, but make your own by reconfiguring pipes. Save $9.20 per year electric heater, $4.00 per year gas heater.
You can save more money by maintaining water heater, which pays about 10$ per month in future replacement costs.
Or fix leaks, and install dual-handle faucets so lifting single handle faucet in middle does not continually run cold water into tank. This saves $2-$8 per month.

The power cord when connected to the laptop is loose and looses connectivity. how do i tighten it or secure it to keep the connectivity?


Laptop chargers usually split into two parts, there will be a "brick" which is usually connected to a thick cord which has the plug on one end, and there will be another, detachable, thinner cord connected to it as well, which has the laptop adapter. Ensure that the charger is firmly plugged into the wall, and also ensure there is a secure connection where the second cord plugs into the charger.
Has anyone recently tripped over your charger? Did it fall? Could it have broken from wear and tear over time? If the answer to any of these is yes, then you should consider getting a replacement charger, there isn't really that much you can do to fix one if it's loose like that.

Hi i am having troubl with my power cord to where i have to wiggle it around to charge my laptop what does that mean


Hi,

The problem could in one of 2 places.

1st: check the adapter on the laptop itself. This part gets very hot causing dry solder points and also the pin can become loose. Check that.

2nd: get a multimeter and check the voltage output on the end as in most cases the wire inside the cord breaks causing a loss of connection thus not powering the laptop up.

If you have to wiggle the wire when its plugged in to the laptop the best place to start is at the laptop adapter.



Good luck.

Hello heres my problem the power cord tip gets so hot and burns even ive replaced the battery ive replaced the cord and the tip and its stil happening help please


Seems that your notebook's power socket, where you plug the power cord, is damaged & is causing a loose connection. The loose connection causes the power socket as well as the power cord's tip to overheat & burn.

I can't actually solve this, but I have to wiggle my cord around to get it to "connect". I'm pretty sure my jack is loose, but haven't opened it up yet to check.

Intermittent power connection


I am guessing this is a laptop.

If so, the DC jack on the laptop is bad. The connection between the jack and the motherboard gets loose, or the center pin gets loose. The only fix for this is a jack replacement. It takes soldering skills. You can get it repaired for $100-200 bucks, depending on the shop.

If you have soldering and electronic skills you can do it yourself, but it is tricky if you have never done it.

The only other option is possibly the power cord is bad at the end, where there might be a bend. Sometimes both the power cord and Jack are bad.

Two things... put your hand on the bottom of it.... is it really hot and second any chance of trying another power cord on that ?. I believe you mentioned you tried that cord on another computer. perhaps use the other cord on yours to test it .

Sounds like the wires inside got pulled loose or broke. Replace the speaker wires or check them good for connection.
