You will have to cut off both bad parts and install new connectors. You might take time to find out what caused the melting

Why is the electrical wire so short


Don't add an extention cord to an extention cord! Buy a 100' 14/4 extension cord and tie the end to the fence so it won't come un plugged.
If the plug keeps popping out of the short cord at the blower,wrap the cord around the handle to prevent disconnection.

Compresor will not start under pressure


I have the same compressor with the same problem. I have temporarily eliminated the thermal reset with a piece of 12 gauge hard wire and it runs just fine. However it's not adviseable to run without the thermal reset for an extended time. I tested the draw at 15.5 amps and the reset was a 17 amp. I am told by someone with superior electrical background, that I need to install a 20 amp thermal reset in it's place. I have found that mine runs best when plugged directly into a 20 amp circuit with no extention cord. But, when using an extention cord, I have a 10 guage cord that will carry the load needed to run the EC12. I also have changed to 100% synthetic oil.

When we started using toro leaf blower this year the extension cord started smoking and the plastic started to melt. Is it the leaf blower or extension cord that's faulty. Both are fairly new.


You must use at least a 12 guage extention cord . Your current cord mostlikely can not handle those amount of amps for long duration of time.

Where do I get a new power cord for the HP 3970 which has been in storage for a while, but I want to begin using it agains, and can't locate the power cord. HP has discontinued this model and nothing on...


The correct part number for just the "brick style" power module (AC Adapter) for an HP Scanjet 3970 is L1970-80003. It is a specific 12V DC 2 Amp module. Today it can be purchased for $18.06 plus shipping from the HP Parts Store. However, if you are looking for just the power cord to your scanner's AC adapter, this brick style power module AC adapter does require a separate standard C13 detachable power cord to the specifications of your area, for instance, in the USA the power cord to connect the scanner to the power module AC adapter is part number 8120-6260, and it is a common power cord for monitors and computers. I learned all this because I had a scanner error message when I tried to use a different power module on the HP Scanjet 3970 when I lost the power cord to the original module. I hope this info helps somebody else, too.

Coleman Mach 3 ac unit tries to start compressor & kicks off


50 foot extention cord not a problem IF it is at least 10 gauge and plugged in to a 20 amp circuit

Your compressor is shutting down for a lack of AC voltage would be my best guess

Reddy heater pro 110


My best guess is that you are are connecting to your AC receptacle with an extention cord that is too small. The Reddy Heater contains a computer that will shut the unit off if it cannot pull enough amps from your service. The longer the cord the higher the loss from receptacle to unit. This loss can be reduced by increasing the size of your extention cord. I run a 100' 10/2 cord.

Hope this helps!
