SOURCE: LG 42PG20 42" Plasma.

i have seen on some of those models bad power supplies. if you take the back off the tv you wil see a board in the top center that is the power supply board. you may have about 8-9 vented capacitors towards the left hand side of the board. they will look like they are exploding on the top some may even have black residue on the top that is the leaking electrolytic fluid. they will proabaly be 3300micro farad at 16volt high temp 105degree capacitors.

A very typical problem with GAS dryers is the soloniod coils that open the gas valve . When the coils are cool they operate just fine,but once the dryer gets warm from running the coils dont open the gas valve wwhen they are warm. If that is what your experiencing,the dryer heats when its cool but doesn't heat when it's been running for a while,the coils on the gas valve will need to be replaced.

Masterbuilt smoker model 20070910 with controller error code eaaf. email:

Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly
It is telling you that the temp is below 40 degrees F. All you need to do is warm up the temp probe to 40F and it should work just fine. Use a hand held hair dryer or a warmed up shop vac on b.l.o.w to warm it up.

Happy New Year,

Codes 440 446 evaporative.. Good idea to warm

You can't check a gas cap by seeming. An emmisions staition will check it for you. You don't want to do that hair dryer warming. Flamable and rubber hardening is heat to gas vapors.

It cranks, but it does not run

Have you check the plugs, cables, cap/rotor ?

One thing you can try since it starts good in warm weather, is to ,on a cold morning, take a hair dryer and warm up the suspect part to warm weather condition. Then try and start the car. If it start ok you have probably found the weak part.

Car won't start when it's cold

The ignition switch is bad. I had mine replaced. Saturn found 2 error codes that came up. You can also use a hair dryer I was told and warm up the switch. I hope this helped.
