SOURCE: Aqualink Chlorine Generator not producing any chlorine

It shounds like that you might have a mustard algae issue. It feeds on chlorine. It is possible that your unit is producing chlorine but the algae is consuming it as fast as it can be made. You will need to do a shock treatment and use an Algae 30. It could be something else, but this is likely. You can google mustard algate treatments and read up on it to see if you have other symptoms.

I dropped the lid to the pentair 320 chlorinator for inground pools. The rubber gasket fell out and I don't know where it goes nor does it fit inside the lid. Do the gaskets go inside to screw on lid...

Yes, the o-ring does swell up. I am not really sure what causes that, but the only fix is to replace it. It goes inside the cap. Only use teflon or silicone based lube on it.

Water pipe has a open truck leaking anti-freeze need help locating part

I would think a good parts store could help you, even if it's a temporary replacement or fix, till you get the dealer's pipe. What hose is it? A big radiator hose, heater hose, or metal pipe with o-rings? I still say a temporary fix should work for awhile.

Can't find leak in my inflateable ring have tried the srsy bottle with soapy woter anl other suggestions

Wow what a tough question! This is a real head scratcher.
Using a dye test solution or some of your pH indicator test reagent, drop near it with pump shut off and water still. See if the dye is sucked into the crack, gap or tear.

I noticed my pool was leaking air. I opened the upper ring blow up valve and there is hole inside of it. Can this be repaired? I would hate to get rid of my pool just because the air valve has a hole...

Take a 12 X 12 piece of plastic wrap, wet the pool ring, slide the plastic sheet along until you see the air bubble appear, mark leak with marker pen. Use repair patch. I swear this is better than soapy water!

Ring death one light on

You have a general hardware failure. This can be caused by many things but it is usually from a cold soder or a heatsink problem.

Your best solution is to send it to microsoft for repairs.
If you do not want to do that, you can search eBay for cheap repair services.

For a quick fix, you can wrap your console with a towel and turn it on until it overheats and the 1 Red ring becomes 2. Then leave it on for 2 minutes and unplug the console. Then let it cool completely and then try it.
This trick is only temporary but I hope it helps.

My old x-box 360 has red rings and i dont want to pay to repair it so i need a thing to fix it i guess.

Remove the harddrive, remove game discs, turn XBOX on, remove anything external (ie internet, fans) wrap in 2 or 3 large bath towels and completely incase the console. Make sure no gaps or air can find it's way to the XBOX.

This is a temporary fix, it may work for a few hours to a few days. If you get it the RRD again, follow these steps until you buy a new XBOX.

Call the 1800 number and put the serial number in to see if it's still under waranty because some were extended.

Something wrong

You have the Red Ring of death. For a temporary fix wrap it in a lot of towels and let it run for 20 mins, then let it cool down. This is a temporary fix! The real fix is to send it into Microsoft. You will need the original receipt handy to do this. If you have any questions for either solution I have a YouTube video for the temporary fix and more detailed instructions for the repair. The repair is free.

Magnavox mwd2206

On a unit I checked with this same symptom, removing the top cover allows the unit to stay on and operate normally. There is some sort of sensor at the left middle of the chassis, which, when unblocked by any opaque object, allows the unit to remain on. A temporary fix (not advisable) would be to replace the top cover with a piece of clear plastic or taut saran wrap (no vent holes needed). It's unclear exactly where/what that sensor is from a cursory test. This is a work in progress on someone else's machine that I lack full access to.
