Your safety shut off switch is bad. Usually it is not worth it to replace it, and honestly I have not found a parts store online or in the city that sells the part

    I know, they make them for safety issues, but the heater can still be good but you cannot find any parts anywhere. We have them to heat certain rooms and have gone through about 4 no thanks to our kids

Kia 2.4 optima 07 engine makes knocking noise when I press fuel pad to move..I can't press fuel pad strongly the knocking noise increases more and may broken the rings

Sound like you have spun a bearing do to a blown head gasket. Does the oil on the dipstick look almost like a chocolate milkshake in color? If so your coolant has reached the oil pan and that can definitely cause the engine to spin a bearing causing a loud knocking sound.

How do you access the battery to the Acer aspire 5532, it will not turn on even with the cable

On the back of the Acer 5532 there is a sliding style plastic button, slide it to the side with the unlocked padlock symbol. Then, towards the other end of the laptop, there is a similar looking button that is larger and slides side to side. Simultaneously move this button with one finger while lifting up on the battery compartment which is nearby. The battery is part of the cover and will therefore feel a little heavy.

2005 mazda 3 sunroof

H Kim -

The "gearbox" is unfortunately under the headliner with no easy access. If you are also experiencing a clicking sound when the motor is activated, the regulator track had slipped position and will need to be reset.

I have been through this problem twice now. The first time the motor / gearbox came loose from it's mounts, began slipping (click, click,click), very nasty sound. I remounted the motor with threadlock on the screws, but alas.. two years later (mine's 2006) it slipped again.. I don't know why yet, I need to drop the headliner once more and have a look. If you would like a copy of your FSM, drop me a line.

Here's the RESET procedure from the FSM, absolutely gospel, no other way to fix it:
Sunroof Motor Assembly Note: Note • If the guide is removed, initial position setting of the sunroof motor will be required. After installing the sunroof unit, perform initial position setting using the following procedure. 1. Press the TILT UP switch to fully tilt up the glass panel.
2. When the glass panel reaches the fully tilt up position, temporarily release the TILT UP switch and press it again for approx. 13 s continuously. Continue pressing the switch until the glass panel automatically stops at the fully tilt up position after reaching the mechanical lock position.
3. When the glass panel stops at the fully tilt up position, temporarily release the TILT UP switch, then press it again within 5 s and hold.
Note • Press the TILT UP switch continuously until the glass panel opens to the fully open position, returns to the fully closed position and then stops. 4. Release the TILT UP switch when the glass panel stops at the fully closed position.

ALSO, Here's the clearance adjustment specs for having the glass panel in the correct resting position:

1. Fully close the glass panel.
2. Measure the gap and height difference between the glass panel and the body.
3. Loosen the glass panel installation screws and move the glass panel to adjust.

Standard clearance a: 0.2-2.2 mm {0.008-0.08 in} b: 0 mm {0 in} 4. Tighten the screws.
5. Insert any available thin plastic card between the weatherstrip and the body, and verify that they are sealed. (There is resistance when the plastic card is moved.)

• If they are not sealed, perform Steps 3-4 and adjust again.

Refrigerater knocks when itstarts up

The "knock" you hear is most likely the internally suspended compressor. This happens when the refrigerator is not level. People often tilt the fridge back to aid the door closing and too much tilt causes the fridge to be off level. Also, a dirty condenser or non-operating fan can cause high internal pressures which can cause a knock on startup. If it's old, it could just be tired.
