Code f7 showing & chair won't lift


Going to the user's manual: https://www.ameriglide.com/cache/1475784382000/resources/product/615/productDocument/292.pdf
I see that the F code indicates that there is a fault at the motor, possibly corrected by doing a "reset". Directions are in the user manual. The 7 indicates a fault at the "downside safety edge", the little micro-switch on the downhill side of the footplate. See if there is something holding that little projecting piece of plastic that triggers the micro-switch from springing back out to its normal position. Good luck!

The difference between thermal fuse and thermostat


Thermal fuse is a heat-sensitive safety feature that shuts down system when overheating is detected.
In electrical wiring, the thermal fuse reacts to high temperature caused by too many amps on the electric circuit. When temperature exceeds the fuse amp rating, then the fuse trips and cuts power to electric circuit.
Example of thermal fuse is a household circuit breaker.
Gas water heaters have a different type of thermal fuse located in the combustion chamber or on the combustion chamber door, and also inside a copper probe inside water tank. Water heater thermal fuses will trip when water temperature exceeds fuse rating, or when heat inside the combustion chamber exceeds temperature rating of fuse. This action will cut off gas supply to water heater.
So a thermal fuse is a safety feature.

Thermostat is not a safety feature.
Thermostat is a measuring tool.
Thermostats measure temperature.
Example of thermostat is outdoor thermometer, or cooking thermometer, or Heat-AC control located on wall inside house.
Thermostats can give a simple temperature reading, or they can cause a separate control to turn on-off depending on application.
For example thermostat on Heat-AC will read room temperature, and when temperature exceeds setting, this triggers a switch that turns Heat-AC on-off.

Many appliances have both thermal safety fuse and thermostat.
Take for example a gas water heater. A copper tube extends into the water tank. Inside the copper tube are 2 things: A thermostat probe to measure water temperature, and a thermal fuse called an ECO for energy cut off. The ECO is a thermal fuse, and is a safety feature.

The thermostat reads temperature of water, and turns water heater on-off to keep water hot. A person can adjust water temperature by adjusting the thermostat dial on front of water heater.
However if the thermostat fails, or some other problem occurs, and water inside the tank gets hotter than 180 degrees, then the ECO or thermal fuse will trip. When the thermal fuse trips, this turns off gas to the water heater so water cannot get any hotter. The safety device prevents water heater explosion. The water heater must be repaired since this particular thermal fuse cannot be re-used afterwards, and must be replaced.

Bike dropped on left side now neutral light doesnt come on and i cant start bike without clutch when bike is in neutral. is there a switch or something that triggers light and controls ignition


You didn't say what year model or size of your bike, but most have a neutral safety switch and a side kickstand safety switch. When you dropped it, it probably effected the operation of the switch.

Our F & P dishdrawer keeps coming up with f1 and a picture of a spanner have tried turning the machine of at the switch for 24hr but is still doing it


Water has collected at the base of the dishwasher under the drawer.
This triggers a flood switch and causes the F1 error.

Turn the mains power off and extend the drawer out as much as possible. Take towels to dry the base from inside. Also use hair dryer ot dry out the flood switch mounted at the base.

Turn the power on and see if there is any difference. The cause of water collection could be many. Foam in detergent or kink in drain hose or drawer door gasket leaking etc.

Every time i turn on power it snap the reset breaker. and won't power up.


unplug everything but the 12v power/remote power and ground. turn on and see if it triggers the safety. if it does you have a short in the amp. if it turns on and stays on, plug one cable in at a time to see whats making it trip.

I have just relocated property & Iam with Bigpond & have always been with bigpond & when I try to connect to the internet I get an I-primus pop up saying modem misconfigured - bad username or...


If you are using a usb dsl type modem and not a modem/router for connection, go into internet explorer>tools>internet options>connections tab, then look to see that Bigpond is selected as the default dial up.

If you are using a modem/ router which in effect is on all the time, go into the same menu in IE but tick the liitle button saying never dial a connection.
