Becketthe oil burner 5 years old will not start it's on complete lock down mode jumpt motor it's good cleaned every thing

Before you attempt to light the burner, mop up all of the oil that has accumulated in the combustion chamber from the previous relight attempts.
The cad cell that detects if the oil has been ignited may be bad. Before you mess with the cad cell, it may have locked out. Just turn off the red emergency oil burner switch and then back on. This will reset the control circuit. If it lights again, but goes out, the cad cell is probably dirty, or bad. To make sure, you can jump out the two wires going to the cad cell. If the burner ignites, and stays lit, it was the cad cell. DO NOT OPERATE THE BURNER WITH THE JUMPER IN PLACE. REPLACE THE CAD CELL IMMEDIATELY.

What is a cad cell and what does it do

A cad cell is a photo-electric device that reads the UV rays given off by flame after it has ignited. If it does not 'see' the flame, due to a flame failure OR a cad cell failure, the control circuit is locked out.
Make sure there is no carbon on the front (window)of the cell and make sure its adjustment is in perfect alignment to the flame.

Intertherm mobile home furnace

Ok. First of all what I'm understanding is that your primary burner control is tripping off... generally this has nothing to do with getting hot unless it is mounted close to the burner (the primary control is a circuit board that read resistance from the photocell -cad cell- to prove the flame...and if it gets hot, like any circuitry, could cause problems). If it is mounted close to where the actual controller is getting hot, then build a spacer out of sheet metal. If it is not tripping because of heat, its tripping from not reading the light of the flame via resistance... hence you have to lift the Ignition transformer to access the cad cell, & clean the glass front. (Cad cells doen't usually go bad) Pull the burner, and make sure it has the right nozzle rated on the burner assembly and furnace tag. The nozzle has a gallons per hour & spray pattern degree & number representing solid, hollow, semi-hollow, etc. I recommend semi hollow if you can't find any info on it, but make sure the gph correlates with the btu's rated on the furnace. The electrodes of the ignition transformer need to be positioned correctly for proper ignition. Make sure the fuel pump is tied to a two pipe system so the pump takes no time to prime. Supply & return should be piped with 3/8 copper flare fittings with no leaks. Also make sure the inline fuel filter cartridge is cleaned.
Now if the motor is tripping the motor reset, then it is trying to overcome the resistance of the pump...a 2 pipe system will help this, & making sure the motor is not mounted crooked. Take an amp draw on the motor while it is running and comparing to RLA rating on the motor tag to your actual amps can show you a lot.

My 18 volt worx battery will not hold a charge

A lot of ni-cad packs have one or two bad cells. to find the bad one(s); unscrew the cover on the battery pack and use a voltmeter set on dc volt 2v full scale and test the cells one at a time. they should each have at least 1.25 volts. The bad cells can be removed and replaced with good cells from other discarded packs. If they're not too old many ni-cad cells will still work. You can also revive some cells by unplugging the vent hole in the top of the cell so it can breathe (seriously). Also, I have zapped single cells by momentarily connecting them one by one (even in the pack) to a car battery. plus to plus,minus to minus. But only for about a half second. Also, heating ni-cads will kill them.

CAD CELL e-1 code

A cad cell is normally related to an oil furnace and the cad cell is there to make sure that there is a flame. The cad cell is in a close proximity to the flame and can become covered in soot. Try cleaning it if this is unsuccessfull then you may have to replace it. Being close to the flame they do burn out.

We have a model TS210KT kerosene heater and it runs for 15 sec. and then E1 CAD Cell Shutdown code comes up and the heater shuts down

  1. 1) Check wiring to Cad Cell (per wiring schematic in manual). Test heater.
  2. 2) Clean Cad Cell photo cell.
    a) Slide Cad Cell out of Cad Cell holder.
    b) Push the photo cell out of the white rubber Cad Cell housing by

    pushing on the blue and white wires.
    c) Clean the photo cell with a soft cloth and rubbing alcohol.
    d) Pull the photo cell back into the Cad Cell housing and reinstall into

    e) Test heater.

  3. 3) If the heater still does not operate, replace Cad Cell. Test heater.
  4. 4) Replace oil flame control assembly. Test heater.

I have a Gateway MX8738; it is not charging. When I plug the power pack into the outlet the green light on the power pack is solid; once I plug it into the laptop, it starts flashing and I will not charge....

possibly a bad cell in the battery. I'm not sure how old your unit is but if it has a ni-cad or nickel cadmium battery, they are constructed similar to an electrolytic capicitor with alternate layers of paper dielectric and metal electrode. If the cell is old and breaks down, it can short out. If this is the case, it will appear to the charger as though you are trying to charge too few cells thereby drawing more current than it was designed for. The same is basically true for lithium batteries except they are more durable. The above possibility still exists but is less likely. If you are using NiMH, (nickel metal hydryde) battery, when these go bad they usually have an increase in internal resistance and appear as an open or higher resistance in the circuit rather than a short circuit or zero resistance unless the cell itself has been physically crushed or dented in which case it would show up as a short circuit within the cell. In any case, in my opinion, your charger is detecting a defective battery.
I hope this helps.
good luck.

Norelco shaver 6866XL won't charge, light glowsred

The battery is probably one with multiple cells and one (or more) of them has shorted preventing the total from reaching a voltage that appears as fully charged.
If the cells are Ni-Cads, this is a common problem with them and when a battery-operated item of mine fails, I replace those older types with NiMH cells if the battery compartment can accept them.
I have 'restored' countless NiCads over the years by 'zapping' them with a fairly high current for a second or two; voltage isn't important as long as it is in excess of 2-3 volts but the source should have a few amps capacity.
This type of cell grows 'whiskers' that will cause them to short completely or develop a path that causes them to self-discharge faster than normal.
