No. Even if the air supply suddenly shuts off, it will take a while before the air inside the air caster completely ends. This way the load will not suffer from sudden shocks. However, after the load is resting on the landing pads, it can hardly be moved.

Where are the fuses located for the air conditioner in a 2001 pontiac bonneville


The interior fuse box in a Pontiac Bonneville is underneath the backseat on the driver's side.

To remove the rear seat cushion:
1. Pull up on the front of the cushion to release the
front hooks.
2. Pull the cushion up and out toward the front of
the vehicle.

To reinstall the rear seat cushion:

1. Buckle the center passenger position safety belt, then
route the safety belts through the proper slots in the
seat cushion. Don't let the safety belts get twisted.
2. Slide the rear of the cushion up and under the
seatback so the rear - locating guides hook into the
wire loops on the back frame.
3. With the seat cushion lowered, push rearward and
then press down on the seat cushion until the spring
locks on both ends engage.
4. Check to make sure the safety belts are properly
routed and that no portion of any safety belt is
trapped under the seat. Also make sure the seat
cushion is secured.

Notice:
The battery and main fuse blocks are located
under the rear seat cushion. The battery's ground
terminal and some relay wires are exposed.
To help avoid damage to the battery and wires,
be careful when removing or reinstalling the seat
cushion. Do not remove covers from covered
parts. Do not store anything under the seat, as
objects could touch exposed wires and cause
a short.

Does my floor have to be perfectly smooth to use air casters?


It is better to use air casters on smooth, nonporous sourfaces as cracks or bumps interrupt the correct flow of air and might impair the air cushions. However the surface doesn't have to be perfect like glass. A standard concrete warehouse or factory floor are usually good enough.

Random banging and whooshing sound


New water heater?
http://waterheatertimer.org/New-water-heater-making-noise.html
http://waterheatertimer.org/Repair-water-heater-valve.html
Water does not compress. So each faucet has air chamber located behind wall. Air chamber is usually just a vertical piece of pipe about 18" long with a cap so it never fills with water. When water flows... all the water back to the main supply begins to move toward the faucet. The weight of this water can be considerable. When faucet is turned off, the whole column of water suddenly stops, but weight of water is still pushing forward.
Without air chambers to cushion the sudden stop of water weight, the pipes bang and rattle. With air chambers, the weight of the water pushes up into the air chamber causing the air to compress, which silently cushions the weight of water, but also causes a push-back when water stops moving forward. The push back can then move water backwards where it compresses air inside another air chamber. So the water can slosh back and forth.
IF you have factory-installed heat traps on your water heater, these things have rubber baffles. The baffles hum and rattle and whistle and clog and cause strange sounds that carry through the pipes and water heater and wood joists etc. The water sloshing back and forth can move the baffles and cause noise.
Or maybe you have a check valve that has gotten loose.

Noisy water pipes when neighbours use water


Install air chamber to cushion sudden-stop of flowing water.
Water flow coming to sudden stop is called water hammer, and will bang pipes, but also loosen plumbing joints, causing leaks.
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-troubleshoot-electric-problems-with-water-heater.html#bang
http://waterheatertimer.org/images/Flow-rates-water-hammer-600.jpg

Air chamber has to be vertical, and about 18" long, with cap on top.
By code each Hot and Cold line at each tap will have air chamber located behind the wall. So there are two air chambers at each tap.

In your case, you can probably add air chamber to your Hot and Cold lines and solve problem for both dwellings.

Water hammer is caused because water does not compress like air.
So when long column of water suddenly stops... the whole pipe-full of water comes to sudden halt... and that water could weigh 1-1/2 pounds ... and just like a hammer head moving, the weight of water bangs the pipes to dissipate energy, causing noise.

My Roomba 560 just spins in circles and then stops and beeps 9


Perhaps its a wheel drop sensor instead of a cliff sensor. Clean the caster, caster axle, caster motion sensor, remove and vacuum or blow the dirt from the left and right wheel assemblies.

Dryer was running and drum stopped spinning but still runs


The weight of the wet cushion broke the drum belt. A good handyman can do it or, it's not a terribly expensive service call.

Changing the dual axle on an Invacare recliner to lower seat


You will need to remove the rear tires and front casters. If you look at the front caster fork there should be some extra holes where you can re-position the caster wheel. Likewise on the hole where the rear tires mounts there should be a hole above it where you can re-mount the tire. So just move the caster and wheel up to the next hole. If there are no holes to move up to then you cant lower the chair. The only other options would be to install a drop seat which you`ll have to purchase from a dealer or install smaller wheels and casters. So, for instance,say you have 8" casters and 24" wheels you would then install 6" casters and 22" wheels. Good Luck and let me know how it turns out.

It's a bad fuel sending unit - it has nothing more than coincidence in common with the timing of your emissions test. You'll have to remove the sender from the tank to replace it. Some cars require dropping the fuel tank, but others have an access port in the trunk or under the rear seat cushion. Replace the sender and you'll be back up and running correctly.
