Question about Washing Machines

1 Answer

Slow oscillation, clicking in control panel, dimming lights

When washer is full and begins to churn, it churns slow, there is a clicking sound in the control panel and the lights in the laundry room dim down. Changing the wash/rinse speed setting does not work, still same slow, weak and strained operation. Never had a problem before. Purchased in 1999.

Hum. 1st I would check make sure power company is sending you the right Voltage.

2nd Make sure did not trip one side of breaker, Reset if needed.

3rd Pulling electrical circuits down could mean Start & or run capacitor is failing or failed. Or worse motor is failing.

Unless you know how to troubleshoot electrical systems might leave to tech Capacitors store voltage/amps & can harm or kill you.

I f I can help more MSG me back. Hope this helped. Please rate. Thank you. Good Luck!

How long do I churn mixture?

Probably 15-20 minutes depends on machine and mixture. Some machines stop churning when the ice cream gets so thick that it stops the beater from turning. If you have this type of machine, when you hear clicks turn it off. If you start with a frozen container vessel, your ice cream will freeze faster. Remember that longer is not necessarily better. The longer it is out, the warmer it gets, and will turn back into slush.

My portable DVD player will not play the movie.

Sounds like either a dirty or bad optical pickup in the unit--if dirty it can be cleaned but if bad may cost too much to repair.

Ice cream does not seem to freeze it is always very soft. Everything else freezes O.K.

hi icecream generaly depends on the mixture & consistency need more clarity....

All fresh ice cream is somewhat soft, but should not be liquid. It will never be hard like it is in store. Let it churn until it is the consistency of soft ice cream, and then let it harden a bit in the freezer to get to the consistency you want. It's possible you actually let it churn too long and it started melting again.

Another method I used is to just put the ingrediants in the bowl, put in the freezer, and then take it out of the freezer and churn it myself, moving a butter knife around the edges to get all the frozen parts out, then a fork to mash it up. The ice cream takes less time to freeze and is generally harder

Just receive this machine and am not sure which switch is the chill land which switch is the churn!

Simple. The churn button is the one with the swirl on it (i.e. indicating churn). The chill button just looks like a snowflake.

Ice maker is very slow to release ice

It sounds like it is malfunctioning and needs replaced,< the icamaker has a built in heating element to warm up for releasing ice easier, it has probably quit working>.the noise is from it trying to break ice loose from tray without element warming and it is hard to do this.

I have a 1995 Chevy suburban, and I'm trying to figure out why is it when we go to start the truck it churn and churns, so then we dump a cap full of gas in where breather is before it actually kicks off....

have you checked your cold-start injector? these injectors will just deliever one "squirt" of gas into the intake when starting the vehicle - much like your cap of gas down the breather does...

HP color laser 2550L prints only in yellow

Hi Mmgrafde,

Press the Go and Rotate Carousel buttons simultaneously. This will calibrate the printer. See if this works.

Otherwise....Remove all cartridges and drum. Switch off printer. Close the lid. Switch on printer and wait until any churning stops. Insert the drum and close the lid. Wait until any churning stops. Put in one cartridge at a time, closing the lid and wait till it stops churning each time. With the last cartridge put in, it will churning longer (calibrating). Try to print from your computer.

It could also be that the toner could actually have run out for the other colors.
