LG Electric Dryer DLE2140W, it keeps running plus no heat. It says check filter, but filter is all clear.

Dryer will only turn off when cloths are dry. Seems like you have a failed heat circuit. If electric, first reset the circuit breaker (double) a couple of times. If gas, call a tech.

Wertheim x3000 motor running but little suction?

Check all of the filters. When there's extra heat, it's usually blocked filters.

If not, dismantle the wand and use long pipe cleaners or a bottle brush to clear any possible jams in the wand or head. Remove the hose from the main unit and if possible, drop ball bearings or marbles down the hose to try and clear any blockage. Remember to recover all of the ball bearings or marbles before you reassemble the hose and wand.

When i first turn it on the message (projector over heated will automatically shut off lamp) comes up and then shuts off after 2 mins

You have an overheating problem.To solve it

1) Ensure that there are clear air pathways around the projector

2) Clean the air filters.

3) Ensure that the fans are running. If the fans don't run the projector won't fire it.

It is likely that cleaning the filters will solve your porblem.

My tiger shark starts perfect runs great but when you start away in the water you can go about 250 yards than the motor will bog down and will stay boggy until you let off the throttle. as soon as you come...

Have you checked the water filter to see if it is plugged with weeds. If the engine is over heating it will drop to idle automatically. If the filter is clear there is a small cooling water elbow (90 degree fitting ) below the exhaust ports of the exhaust manifold. If a small pebble or piece of crud gets caught in the elbow your machine will continually over heat. Be sure you have a water filter on the machine and clean/clear it carefully so this is not a problem. If everything is clean/clear and you continue to drop to idle you may have a bad over heat safety switch( does happen but not to often).

Not Heating

there could be a problem with one of the thermal fuses located in the cabinet under the drum and along the side of the heating element can. the first one to check is the one furthest back on the can.
you can check them all for continuity and replace the one that is bad also check the heating element last.

Clear coffee?

Hello, After many years in the coffee game there are only 3 possible reasons for this, either the water is not heating, this would cause the water to not extract the coffee from the grounds. Or your filter is folding over and the water is running down past the filter....Lastly and the most probable is the spay head is blocked and the water is coming out the over flow if there is one, which is then bypassing the filter. Things to check would be heat, spray head and filter. Hope this helps...Mike

Dryer runs for long time and does not heat up to dry clothes

Check first to see if the lint filter is clean and the vent hose is clear. If the filter is clean, the vent hose is unblocked and not crimped, and the exterior vent is clear then you probably need to replace the heating element.
Hope this helps. Good luck.

Hotpoint dryer CTD00

Remove the lint filter at the front bottom left of dryer, and run water through it to clean all the fluff out. Clean the other filter, and make sure the air vents air clear.
Before you replace the bottom filter reach inside the opening and remove any build up of fluff and gunge that you can ,get a plastic bag tie or similar and feel for and poke clear a small hole that is located there.
I f it still does not work, then the element and or stats are probably faulty.
Plz rate my solution.

Edgestar 12,000 portale air conditioner and heater

There are 3 possibilities beginning with the most likely problem

1) If your heater heats up for a few minutes and then quits, chances are there is a blockage in the air flow, check for dust and grime blocking the air intake coarse filter , airgun blow to clear accumulated dust and otherwise clean the coarse filter .
2) If the heater fan blows but there is no warm air, the heating element needs renewal ( this happens very rarely)
3)If the fan stalls and the heater heats up and the thermostat kicks in, then this will be not be a DIY job. This is least likely as you said the air cooler works.
