The layout fits totally within a 4x8 board. No accessories and only the engine on the track. The engine stops like it is getting little or no power.

First check your track with a multimeter for track power voltage & continuity.
Second, clean your wheels & pick up roller on your locomotive.
Third, clean your track.

My IKEA dishwasher Renlig DWT160 will not turn on no lights. I've checked the fuse and power supply


If the unit is totally dead, the main board most likely is blown. You say you checked the "fuse"--is there a fuse on the dishwasher or are you referring to the electrical panel fuse box in your house? Did you recently have a power outage? Usually, within 3-4 weeks after having one, appliances will start failing due to damaged chips on the main control boards. The problem could also be a damaged user interface board. If 120volts is getting to the main board but the unit is dead, I'd highly suspect the board is bad. I've also seen lots of bug infestation damage to boards--classic signs are roach tracks in and around the boards--they're attracted to the warmth and will walk across the live boards, shorting them out.

Lionel legacy will not run more than 2 trains


see pages 44 & 45 of attached pdf to figure out your power requirements for all locomotives, lamps/light bulbs & accessories.
compare total needed to power output of your transformer, if total is less that output of transformer, clean wheels, roller pickups & track.
if total is greater than output of transformer, you need more power/larger output transformer. lean wheels, roller pickups track.

check all track connectors(squeeze lose ones with a needle nosed pliers..check wire from transformer to the track..and during assembly, the track gets any dust on it, the wheels wont make proper contact for the engine to run..) as for the locomotive.. sometimes you can clean the motor brush comutator with a simple pencils' erasure by rotating the motor armature by hand(small as it is) to clean the pickups on this..it will better help to transferr the electric into the motor..sometimes on these track layouts, you need fine grit sandpaper to run across the top of the rails as the manufaturer puts a protective coating on these.. it wont carry power to your train..you can also use the backside of a butterknife drug around the layout a few times with the electric off.. it helps you feel any rough spots on the track/layout..

I have a Lionel ZW transformer older version 1955-1956, And lately my train loses power at one area of the track and then regains power again. This happens on both the outside and inside tracks.


This does not appear to be a problem with the ZW. The XFMR does not know anything about train location on the track. It appears to be a track connection problem on the center or outside tracks or both. One way to identify a bad connection is to take a parallel wire from the common and hot terminal of the ZW and connect directly to the area of track where the train stops and slows down. If this cures the problem then I recommend checking the tightness of the three track connections. For both FasTrack and Tubular, crimp slightly the pin receiving holes in the end of the track.

Note: For both tubular and Fasrtrack it is recommended that common track power for any one section be input to the track at more than one point. In this way one bad outter or center conductor won't cause the train to slow up or stop.

If FasTrack, you can solder directly to the tabs on the track underside for a permanent connection.

I just replaced the tires on my Legend Platinum because the originals were totally wore down. I unplugged the pool fitting to clean out the little filter. After I reseated the connection (nice and tight)...


You may need to replace the wall fitting and the fitting that houses the screen. If you look at the fittings and find a tab broken or the track it runs in hurt that will tell the tale. The least amount of damage will cause pressure loss and the noise you hear.

Stopped in the middle of the cycle and won't restart. Button panel has no lights on and no response to touch.


firsst thing to check is that you are getting power to the machine check your breakers on your electical box if you are not electrically handy call a technician you also would also need to check the power conection that goes to the bottom right corner of the machine and lastly if you do have power going into the machine you would need to check the control board. hope this helps

Sometimes the silicone skin can have an effect on the Wii Fit Balance Board if it gets pinched. Make sure that it is not interfering with the the total movement of the top portion of the Wii Fit balance board and the space between the top and the middle of the unit. If there is any obstruction, refit the skin on the balance board.

Wii Fit Board won't register with Wii Fit software


Nintendo had me set and reset the console and then the Wii fit board. They also had me take out the batteries from the Wii fit board, and repeat the reset. Apparently this works in many cases. IT didn't work for me, so now I'm bringing the unit in for repair. I am just a week past my 90 day warranty- they are charging me 47 bucks to fix it! What a sham! that's half the cost of what I paid for the darn thing!
