Keep getting code f10 on a front loader kenmore


Depending on your model it sounds like the following: The Motor Control Unit (MCU) heat sink thermal trip has failed
If the thermal protector on the MCU heat sink gets too hot, it will open the thermal protector on the heat sink which will stop motor functions and an F10 will be displayed.
Potential Causes
• Check for Proper Installation, verify the unit is not
located near a source of heat and has proper ventilation.
• Check Wire Harness connections to the MCU, the motor, and Central Control Unit (CCU)
• Check the Drive system for any worn or failed components
• Check MCU
• Check Motor
Replace failed component.

Tablet Smartphone how can i replace screen protector without air bubbles like Pro does ?


1) Make sure device screen is ABSOLUTELY clean.
2) Make sure your hands, and workspace are also clean and lint free, then DOUBLE CHECK #1 above.
3) The pro's use a "wetting" solution to settle the protector onto the screen but NOTE ! wetness is generally bad for electronics !, so " a little, is good. More is NOT better!"
4) A small plastic squeegee is usually included with any "quality" protector kit. USE IT GENTLY! move the squeegee from the center toward the edges, pushing excess solution or bubbles as you go. Excess pressure stretches the protector and causes bubbles to form as the protector settles.
5) Once the protector is bubble free, in the correct place, and not hanging over the edges. LEAVE IT ALONE 'TILL IT DRIES AND SETS.

NOTES If your protector is one that uses an adhesive coating to hold it in place, DON'T TOUCH THE ADHESIVE SIDE WITH FINGERS (or anything else for that matter) because that's what makes dimples that trap bubbles. This process is proof of the saying "You only get one chance to do it right the first time!". If after the process is complete, and if you find there are still bubbles, you may try again but the likely chance of removing and replacing the same film without damaging it is very small. Fortunately, protector screens usually aren't too expensive (compared to the price of a damaged phone/tablet). Good luck!

Hoover bagless keep shutting off after about 5 minutes of cleaning and take about 30 minutes or more to work again. Is it overheating and why? how can I fix this?


Your hoover has a thermal protector that shuts power to the motor off for 30 mminutes if it trips. Tripping of the thermal protector it typically caused by an obstruction of some sort, there are several locations to check. First, remove the bagless filter and look for a rectangular plastic object centered under where the canister was. This "final fillter" is often overlooked and can be washed in your kitchen sink. Let dry completely before using. Other things to look at are on the big plastic filter inside the canister, make sure the holes arent clogged with dirt, this also can be washed in your sink. Of course check the lines from just behind the brush all the way to the filter for clogs. If all else fails, take it and your warranty if still good to an authorized service center to have it serviced... I've noticed on this model, if the thermal protector trips too many times, it seeems to be more prone to trip to the point that it doesn't matter if theres a clog or not anymore. This is how I found out about this problem, as I work for a hotel using these (and these are not designed to be commercial grade). They cost like $50 to service this $80 vaccume so, being that the warranty was void for using them commercially, and the cost of the servicing, I simply bypassed the thermal protector and make it a point to completely clean them 1-2 times a weeek till we can get a more commercial model.

I have the porcelain coated pans and the kids burnt chilled cheese and just can't seem to get it clean now


You can use spray-on oven cleaner, such as "Easy Off" or any similar store brand. Do not use oven cleaner on Aluminum pans, pans with non-stick coatings, or pots/pans with plastic or rubber handles. Wear rubber gloves when working with oven cleaner. It is a very powerful cleaner and can burn your skin.
  1. Put the pan in your empty kitchen sink.
  2. Spray it on generously with oven cleaner.
  3. Leave it overnight, 8 hours or so.
  4. In the morning thoroughly rinse and wipe all the areas you sprayed, including the sink.
You should have a clean pan and a clean sink. Refer to the oven cleaner's label for further instructions and safety hazards. Choose the type of oven cleaner that suits your needs. In my experience, "Fume Free" oven cleaners take longer and don't work as well. Seemingly, the more noxiously fumed cleaners, ie ones containing Lye (Sodium Hydroxide), work better and faster.
This works for porcelain coated pots/pans, stainless steel, steel, glass, etc. Do not use oven cleaner on aluminum pans, pans with non-stick coatings, or pots/pans with plastic or rubberized handles.

Need to reclace power cord


Greetings,

I have gone ahead and taken pictures of how to change the cord on a Dyson DC07 upright. Here's what you'll need to have handy in order to complete this repair:

- T15 Torx Bit Screw Driver
- Dyson DC07 Power Cord For All DC07 Models, Part 905449.
- A 2mm or Smaller Flat Head Screwdriver (width of the tip)
- Needle Nose Plyers
- Patience (haha)

The cord above is actually a link back to our site if you have yet to purchase your cord. We carry most every Dyson part.

IMPORTANT: MAKE SURE YOUR VACUUM CLEANER IS UNPLUGGED BEFORE DOING ANYTHING ELSE!

Step 1. First thing you'll want to do is to unwrap the cord from the machine, and remove the handle from the upright part, then slide the hose all the way down the wand, and remove the hose from the handle assembly completely and set it aside. Also remove the dust bin assembly completely from the machine as well.


86bdf5c.jpg
Step 2. Once you've remove the handle from the machine I find it easier to work on if you lay vacuum on it's back, with the switch button facing upwards. Now remove the T15 Torx bit screw that is directly below the switch actuator. I have circled the location of this screw in the picture below:


080ce87.jpg
Step 3: After you have taken off the screw, you're doing to need to remove the switch box housing from the vacuum that the screw was securing. Simply use your flat head screw driver, and pry the two small arms upwards. Be careful when prying, the plastic components on Dyson vacuums are really cheap quality plastic, and I can't tell you how many times I have seen these plastic parts break. Here's a picture of the location of where you should pry the switching off:


357199b.jpg
Here's what the vacuum should look like after the switch housing has been removed:


eb76162.jpg
Step 4. Use your needle nose plyers to remove the terminals from both of the switch poles. Also be careful when removing these terminals, don't force it or it will break the pole right off of the switch, and you'll then have to replace the switch along with the cord. Also you'll need to remove the two white wires that are connected together apart, also using your needle nose plyers.


0ebca47.jpg
Step 5. After you've removed the two terminals connected to the switch, as well as the two white wires that were connected, follow the electrical cord up until the point that it enters the vacuum cleaner to the rubber cord protector. Lift straight up on this cord protecter to remove it from the vacuum.


90104f6.jpg
Step 6. You'll have to now slide the cord out through the cord protector so that you may install the protector on your new cord. Unfortunately as you'll see, your new cord does not come with the plastic terminal protectors that are on the end of the wires, so you'll need to take off these plastic ends on both the black, and the white wires that come from the cord. The other wire that you see in there that has a white wire with no plastic cover, and a black wire that does have the plastic terminal. There's no need to remove the plastic terminal from the wire that runs down into your motor, just leave these alone. If you look closely at these plastic terminal covers, you'll see that one side of them have two little ridges on the inside, also that the bottom is flat, and the top rises upwards on one end. To remove these plastic parts, use your 2mm flat head screwdriver and insert it through the top part that has the two ridges on the indside. While your screw driver is in as far as it will go, lift upwards away from the wire while pulling out the wire at the same time. Repeat this on the other wire as well.


5d505de.jpg
This is how the wires look like without the terminals:


d0ba44f.jpg
Step 7. After remove the plastic terminal covers from the wires, pull the cord through the rubber cord protector and remove your old cord. Open your new cord, and now you'll have to feed the two wires through the cord protector. Simply push the cord through the ribbed end of the cord protector. You normally can push the cord hard enough so that the ends of the wires will come out the other end fairly easy. If the wires don't come out, use your needle nose plyers to pull the metal ends of the wires through the rubber cord protector.

Step 8. Reconnect the wires to the switch, as well as connecting the two white wires together. Here's how the wiring should look like when done properly:


2a63631.jpg
Step 9. After reconnecting the wires to the switch, and to the other white wire, you'll need to put the switch back in place, along with the cords, and the cord proector. You can see little channels that the cords actually sit in to keep them from pulling out. Place both the wire on the bottom that goes to the motor, as well as the electrical cord into these channels. The two white wires that are connected together go to the left of the switch. Here's how it should look like when you're finished:


df00511.jpg

Simply put the switch housing cover back over the switch and cords, and screw the Torx bit back in, and then test the vacuum to make sure that the cord works.

I hope that this repair was helpful to you with fixing the cord on your Dyson DC07.

How do you change the oven bulb in a GE Profile Convection oven?


Unplug or flip breaker to the range. Remove wire around glass bulb protector by sliding one side out of clip while holding onto glass protector so it doesn't fall into the oven and break. Unscrew old bulb, replace with new one. Hold glass bulb protector over the bulb and hook wire back into its clip. Voila! Back in business. (I didn't unplug it, but discovered that you can't turn off the bulb, so it shines in your eyes while the oven door is open. Also, very stupid thing to do, since the bulb could very easily have broken in my very clumsy hand and given me a bad shock. So do it right, and unplug!)
