My 2001 chevy malibu had been working fine up until this afternoon it turns but wont start,itmakes ahumming noise even when i turnoff key.


That humming noise may be your fuel pump burning out. Try turning the key to the on position while someone else listens near the gas tank. The humming should only hum for a few seconds so you won't have time to listen yourself unless you can hear it from inside. If the hum continues and doesnt shut off, it is likely a bad fuel pump. It is normal to hear a small hum for a couple of seconds , but when it starts getting weak, it will hum louder, longer, or not at all

Where is the reset button for fuel pump c


I think the reset switch is in the rear quarter panel. Open the rear hatch and remove the passenger panel. I am not positive on this it could be on the other side. But on the 1990's vintage it was on the right. This switch is used for "roll overs" to shut of the fuel. You might have a bad pump or clogged filter instead.

Kracher power washer won't turn on


Sure that the outlet you are using is powered? Is power reaching the motor? - I had my power switch on my karcher break internally rendering machine dead. If power is reaching the motor for sure and it does not run then there has to be an open motor winding. If pump jammed you would hear a humming noise from motor and the breaker would pop.

Breaker kicks off as soon as switch is turned on


the gfci is defective from moisture even after they dry they can be defective,access the cord inside the machine and try a different cord and see if this is your problem,otherwise the pump motor could be bad,the bypass valve on the pump could be bad,if you could run it you could check current draw with an amprobe,but not if it wont start

Sub has started humming with amp turned off. just turned on at wall switch.nothing running


If the hum is from the back of the unit around the amplifier, it may be the transformer. It could be that the mounting is loose.
It could also be that the transformer is going out.

Disconnect all the inputs to the unit, Still hum?

If the hum stops you have something causing noise to the input.

If you have it on a switched circuit, try moving the power plug to a different outlet that is not on a switch. If hum stops, then you have something on that circuit causing the problem

if all inputs are disconnected and it still humms good chance it is the transformer.
