Have a 99 suzuki intruder 1500. Have replaced the battery 3 times. The battery keeps dying and I'm dying on the inside. So frustrating. Could the timing be off? I even replaced the starter thinking it...

My friend ... you say you have replaced the battery three times ... My first thought is a MC battery lasts about 3 years . 3X3 = 9 years ... you have had excellent service getting 12 years from three batteries. But alas, I think you are saying you have replaced three batteries one right after another ... and you did this recently. You say you suspect the timing ... not the problem The time your engine fires has little to do with battery health. Next you say you suspect the starter ... the starter is a motor that you control with a switch ... it either runs or it doesn't run ... it too has little to do with battery health. I suspect there is something wrong with your Suzuki involving either the alternator or the rectifier. The inside of the rectifier you would find a bridge made up of probably 4 diodes. A diode is a one way switch that allows power to flow from A to B but not B to A. This allows the output from your alternator (AC power (Alternating Current)) to be "rectified" into a kind of power that looks to the battery like DC (Direct Current). Your motorcycle actually runs off the battery ... the alternator's job is to keep the battery charged. (By the way, you have to put power into a alternator to get power out of it since an alternator is normally not "self exciting". If your battery is dead, even if running, you are not making electricity to charge the battery.) If one or more of the diodes are shorted in the rectifier, that allows power to go from A to B and B to A. When this happens, power doesn't become "DC" to go into the battery, actually, it goes back to ground sort of like a short. That will 'kill' your battery. First off, the battery power is used up by the motorcycle, second, the alternator cannot charge the battery because its product (AC) is going to ground.

You can test your rectifier with a flash light battery, a flash light lamp and a paper clip. Disconnect the rectifier from the wire harness. If you put one end of the paper clip on the bottom of the battery, one end of the light on the other end of the battery, then touch the other end of the paper clip to the edge of the lamp. The light will light. Now, run the power through one terminal on the rectifier - out another terminal until the light works. ID the terminals. Then reverse the polarity. The light should not illuminate ... if it does, that means power is flowing through the diode both directions and makes your rectifier suspicious. Check all combinations of the various terminals you find on the rectifier ... (possibly up to 4 terminals or more).

If you don't want to do all this stuff, you can take the motorcycle (or the rectifier) to your local motorcycle repair shop and have it tested, probably for no or little charge.

Oh yea, your alternator could be bad, but I doubt it.

Good luck to you on this repair. Do not dispare.

Thanks for your question @

My microwave is 4 years old. It stopped heating about 2 years ago. The light works, the microwave timer works, the microwave itself will turn on, but it won't heat anything. Could this be a simple part...

Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly
Often it is a simple part replacement. There are 3 parts that can cause this. The most common failure is the power diode. You remove the chassis to gain access and then make sure you hold a screwdriver and ground the large capacitor at least 3 times across the terminals. Then you can check the diode by using an ohm meter across the terminals. It should read continuity in one direction only. (reverse lead polarity) If it reads in both directions OR there is no continuity then the diode has failed. Next you test the high voltage capacitor by reversing the leads and watching each time for a jump in resistance then the meter returns to infinity. (Diode must be disconnected) No jump in resistance after reversing the test leads or constant resistance = bad capacitor. Lastly the Magnetron could have failed. You read resistance of the leads of the Magnetron with one lead disconnected. You must read resistance. No resistance = bad magnetron.

Since you did not include a model number this response assumes you have a non-inverter powered unit. If you need more specific information or have an inverter powered microwave I need a complete model number in your response so I can pass on parts sources and unit specific checks.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,

Coffee grinder wont turn on

some grinders have termo protection, you should check in the body of motor to find the termo protector and to reset or replace it. also you need to check the power supply wire and the switch too. if all they are in order than you have problem with motor, you should consult rewinding workshop in your area for it

Have an fg5700ak runs ok but no power output what

Typical diodes are 10 amp for these. The stator and rotor both have VERY low resistance readings. The reading typically will be below that which will register MEANINGFULLY on the digital meters.

My generator had 10 amp diodes with surge protectors across them. One of the protectors shorted and generator output was zero. Mine is a 6KW diesel silent unit.

Replaced the diodes with 70 amp ones with surge protectors that have 20 times the energy absorbtion as the originals. Unfortunately this required some lathe work to make holders for the diodes and the surge protectors to ride on the rotor.

Used the light bulb trick to remagnitize it once diodes were replaced.

Burneer wont stay light afer lighting

You can test all the parts with a multi meter, My only concern is that the thermocouple you got is either not the right one, or it is wired wrong and the wires may need to just be switched around, if that doesnt work then take a multimeter and check for voltage at the Limit switch (thermo disc) and see what you get, you can also check to coninuity at the limit switch if it is opened or closed, if it is closed replace if it is open then it is still good

Samsung DVD/VCR Recorder

Unit dead.
Local repair shop said it's un-econimical to repair.
Admitted they had no service manual.
Said they could 'have a look' but likely repair cost would be over $300. Charged me $50 for quote. Useless Gits.

My opinion & findings.
Power supply sensative to spikes.
I Suggest a power filter in-line with unit.

Disconnected all sub-boards from main.
Hiccuping PSU (5v wobbles between 2&3V).
Replace switchmode IC & feedback IC. No change.
Eventualy identified short-cct diode as listed below.

0402-001194 Diode is a Gen-purpose 200V 2A diode. I used a 1n4007 (1A), so I expect to have to replace it in future. It's "D1S35" located very close to right rear corner of main board, part of 15V and 12V rails. Next time I'll use a 'faster', higher rated diode.
I also had no clock progression. Time could be set but would not advance. Been like that for ages - I thought it was a user clock-setting error. Identified Dead 32.768 khz crystal (XT601).

Hired manual $10 +postage
Non-faulty parts + postage $40
1 diode $1

Satisfaction, plenty.
