SOURCE: Rechargable Stinger new bulb is dim orange

Could possibly be a bad switch, I would also get that battery tested out also. If you still have a receipt it should be covered under warranty. If not try sending it in anyway. Limited lifetime warranty does not include bulb, or batteries but, anything else on that Stinger should have a lifetime warranty. Of course that excludes abuse. Check out the website and go to FAQ for a nearest Authorized Service Center or send it directly to Streamlight. Address also listed on the website. Hope that helps ;)

SOURCE: microwave doesn't heat

check your door safety interlock switches ...

switch burned = no circuit

no circuit = door open (as far as the oven is concerned)

door open = no magnatron action

no magnatron action = no heat

Of course it could be something else ... but if it is the switch, you can easy fix that.

SOURCE: I have a JVC HD-55g456aa rear projection tv and

You have a high voltage leak somewhere. Probably the flyback but it could also be the HV divider block. Remove the back and while staying a safe distance from the unit turn it on and see where the arcing is happening. It could also be on the main circuit board in the area of the flyback. Odds are the flyback is cracked and needs replaced. This is not too difficult for most people to do.

I have a tip at which is written for a set which is dead (usually the case) but it explains how to identify the parts you need to change, how to replace the parts and where to get the parts at the best price. Let me know if you need more help.

Thanks for using FixYa and for the generous rating.

Should my 1.5 acre stinger bug zapper zap when I plug it up

Intuitively, I glean it zaps when you turn it on only if you are a bug. Zapping is caused by the bug encountering the zapper. Otherwise, it would zap you even if you were not a big bug, simply because you were in close proximity.

I have a flowtron bk-2125 bug zapper, looking at the troubleshooting, it said check for power on the grid, how do i do that. I changed bulb and it is not coming on, it said if i have power then the starter...

If you have no power from the grid then bug zapper is not problem. If bug zapper is a corded plug in application then unplug and plug into a plug in that you know works. Check your breaker panel for a tripped breaker and reset if necessary. Or try a different appliance by plugging something that you know is operational into the same plug. If it works, there is likely an internal problem in bug zapper.

How do I install two C batteries correctly into my Stinger hand held bug zapper ?

The flat end of the battery (with out the nipple) normally goes to the spring in any battery holder. There is normally a picture of the battery orientation in the plastic molding of the battery space (sometimes hard to see)

When installing the two required C batteries into my new Stinger bug zapper. In what manner should the batteries be inserted into the battery compartment ?

Not sure which model of Stinger bug zapper you have. If you are using C batteries then it could be a portable racket zapper.

Please check model number and compare with list of manuals on this site.

If there are only two batteries then there are 4 ways in which these can go. You could try and see which one works.

How to repair

Is the buglight still working? I simply take a blade of grass and place in between the wire cages to make electrical connection and verify transducer is not defective. If you don't get a spark quickly your transducer may be burned out as I cannot keep one working due to larger insect getting in unit and overloading the transducer.

Light wont come on. Purifier wont work

When the high voltage transformer is working right, it will make the neon bulb glow.
You probably have a burned out high voltage transformer. That's what produces the ozone. Helpful hint...........the high voltage transformer is also the one used in bug zappers
