Try trouble shooting with a can of "freeze it" (spray coolant available at Radio Shack) while it is warm and working. Spray small areas of the PC board and see if it goes off. Repeat to confirm once you narrow it down. Sounds like a bad component, loose connection, or cold solder joint. But this means you have to have some knowledge of removing parts to expose the PC Board, etc. And also knowledge of doing proper repairs once the fault is located. If not, leave it to a professional or you may cause more damage.

I got the damm over My sony Vaio S series laptop, I'v cleaned several times, but it is shown again, (my building is so old), how can I clean the damm forever?

Best way I have found to dry out a computer is to use a hair dryer on the lowest setting or no heat and blow it carefully into the vents on the laptop. I have done this successfully on Toshiba and VAIO laptops I used on my boat. Just be careful not to get the hair dryer too close to any plastic to avoid melt damage but on lowest heat or no heat setting that should not be a big issue.

How do I know when the thermal fuse for my whirlpool deut electric dryer is bad?

Take it out. check it with a multimeter set on ohms. Get a hair dryer turn it on hotest setting. with meter leads on each end of the thermal fuse have someone hold the hair dryer blowing hot air on fuse. It should show continuity through it when cold. After heat is applied it should show 0 or infinity. If its working properly move on to over temp switch.

Got a heat related issue likely on main signal board---might be able to localize it (suspect a flat pack chip) with a hair dryer to heat the board just a bit.

The dryer starts, it fires. But after like 30 to 60 sec. burner shuts off. All filters and exhaust are checked.


There can be many reasons why your dryer will not start or turn...

The most common causes are the belt breaking or jumping off, or the motor going bad...

My rca d52w26 turns on for 5 minutes then shuts off let it sit for 20 minutes it turns on for another 5 any ideas

Try to cleaning it from inside first thing without switching it on as sometimes power is stored for upto 30 -60 secs (POWER SWITCHED OFF)- maybe alot of dust is gathered & messing with circuits, use a hair dryer or a cloth - then switch it on.
if it doesnt work then it maybe a fualty transformer - its difficult to know without doing a few checks.

good luck

You are going to have to have a repair person come look at it, If its the same problem we are having. But for now you can take a hair dryer to the back of the tv heat up the back on the left hand side then try turning it on. Is it a 52'? Thats what im doing. And lots other people on this site. Very common problem with this tv from what I can see. But try the hair dryer and call a repair shop.
