Question about GE Sunfire General Electric Wheelchair

Open Question

IS it possible to refurbish a car Battery?

I am sure it is possible. Just was wondering the outcome.

Basically, I understand how the battery works and why.
I have drained the h20/acid out. And now I have the shell.
If I look down into the fill holes I see a cloth looking material.
It appears to be wrapped around the lead plates. I assume to prolong the life of the DEEP CYCLE battery. If i failed to mention the latter part.

Any suggestions....Can I open the battery and clean the plated?
Of course a precautions for safety will be implemented.
And I am aware lead should not be handled with thy hands.

Any one here done some time with this.

Regards and thank you in advance

I install these panels.  For the low battery message to clear you need to power the system down completely.  To do this you need to unplug the battery and also unplug the transformer plugged into an electrical outlet.  When you power the system back up, you need to first plug in the battery leads.  Then the transformer.

SOURCE: My profile washer, Model #

Hi, summarily your clothes are always wet at the end of the wash cycle.

When the clothes are wet at the end of a cycle, check these:
Motor coupler To test the motor coupler, re-start the washer in its spin cycle. Let the machine run for a minute, and then open the lid and notice whether the tub is spinning: If it's spinning when you lift the lid, the coupler is fine. If it isn't spinning--and your machine was produced by Whirlpool®--you may have a broken coupler. Many Whirlpool-made washers use a small, relatively inexpensive device called a motor coupling. This plastic-and-rubber component is mounted to the shaft of the motor on one side, and to the transmission on the other. Over time, the coupler wears out and fails. When that happens, you need to replace it completely.

Spin cycle If the washer doesn't reach its proper spin speed, the clothes may be too wet at the end of a cycle. Check to be sure the load is properly balanced and run a spin cycle again. If the clothes are still wet, you may have a worn or loose belt (Maytag®), a worn clutch (GE®/Hotpoint®), or a worn motor pulley or tub bearing. Replace the applicable component. Alternatively, there could be clothes caught between the inner and outer tubs. Read the "It spins but won't pump" section of the "It won't drain" section. Also, there could be other things that cause friction on the drive train. Seek the assistance of a qualified appliance repair technician.

Siphoning If the water that pumps from the machine goes right back into the machine after the spin cycle, it may be because your washer is siphoning the water from a laundry tub with a slow drain, back into the washer. Try to improve the draining of the laundry tub. (Is there something stuck in the drain?) Also, be sure the drain hose doesn't reach more than about 4 inches into the laundry tub. If it does, cut off the excess.

Water-inlet valve Water-inlet valves eventually fail. One problem that may develop with a water-inlet valve is that it can no longer completely shut off when the electricity is turned off to it. Then, the valve may leak and drip water into the clothes tub--you may notice that your washer has water in it when you haven't used it for a few days. To fix this, replace the valve.

SOURCE: GE Monogram ZDIS15 has ice (sometimes) getting

A leading cause of so many under the counter ice machines is the cond. coils behind the grill below the door is clogged w/dust. Have you taken off that grill and cleaned the dust, it will affect the time it takes to form the slab of ice and also the cycle where the ice plate is heated to release the slab so it will slide to the grid cutter.

Hi, Gerard it should be noted that in order to "PROPERLY" diagnosis any electric starter issue it is "IMPERATIVE" that you begin with a fully charged battery 12.5 volts or better and be able to pass a proper "LOAD" test, and the usual suspects are:
1. Battery terminals have loose or corroded connections.
2. Battery cables faulty due corroded or broken internal wiring at the cable connector especially the "NEGATIVE" cable which needs to be checked at "BOTH" ends.
3. Battery voltage, must be 12.5 volts or better, voltage from the battery to the main circuit breaker to the ignition switch to the security/ignition fuse to the TSM/TSSM module to the engine stop/run switch to the starter button to the starter relay to the green wire that connects to the starter solenoid can not drop more than 1/2 volt of battery voltage.
4. With a voltmeter connected to the battery, the ignition switch in the on position, the kill switch in the run position, the starter button depressed, starter engagement should not bring voltage below 8-9 volts.
If a lower voltage is produced a proper battery load test should be performed with a load tester to validate battery integrity or battery replacement.
5. Faulty starter relay, check continuity.
6. Faulty starter solenoid, check contact plate and shoes for excessive electrical erosion/etching, refurbish as necessary or invert contact plate and use the virgin backside. Check contact shoes for being loose. Replace solenoid if the negative function is still a final outcome.
7. Faulty starter, bench test starter with a 12-volt battery if negative function check, decontaminate and undercut armature commutator segments as necessary, check segments with an ohmmeter probe each one and the segment next to it for shorts. Have the armature tested with a growler and field coils, and brush plate with an ohm-meter for opens, shorts or grounds. Replace brushes if less than .438" It is generally cheaper to overhaul/refurbish a starter motor than buying a new one.

Jump start dead battery


DO NOT UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCE JUMP START YOUR BIKE.
A car, van or truck have batteries that are way too powerful to connect to your bike. The outcome if you do decide to do this are blown sensors, rectifier, regulator, possibly alternator, CDI unit etc. etc. If you remove the battery from the bike remove negative lead first then positive. When you charge the battery do not use a car charger it will fry it. Use only a dedicated motorcycle battery charger with an output of 1 Amp or under. When you refit the battery connect the positive lead first then the negative.

Turn the key with a full battery but there is no response from the starter


1- make sure battery isnt dead. 2-change starter, most starters for an audi this old are probably refurbished, just make sure you get one that is refurbished in GERMANY. i cannot stress that enough. take your old one off first and take it to get tested at a local autoparts shop before breaking the bank. 3- if that doesnt work,check electrical connection from battery to your starter . make sure the power (red) line is going to the starter. 4- make sure starter is connected properly. the starter shoots a flange into your flywheel causing it to spin. the flange may not be ejecting properly.

Hi, Harry before testing any electrical component in the Starter Circuit it is "IMPERATIVE" that you have a fully charged battery of 12.5 volts or more and be able to pass a proper "LOAD" test because your battery may have 12.5 volts or more but little or zero amps causing the battery to be faulty and must be replaced especially "AGM" batteries and the usual suspects are:
1. Battery terminals have loose or corroded connections.
2. Battery cables faulty due corroded or broken internal wiring at the cable connector especially the "NEGATIVE" cable which needs to be checked at "BOTH" ends.
3. Battery voltage, must be 12.5 volts or better, voltage from the battery to the main circuit breaker to the ignition switch to the security/ignition fuse to the TSM/TSSM module to the engine stop/run switch to the starter button to the starter relay to the green wire that connects to the starter solenoid can not drop more than 1/2 volt of battery voltage.

Dell Inspiron wont power up and battery is hot enough to iron my shirt. Wha t is the problem here?


Possibly a defective battery. Be careful with that. Try powering up without the battery, only on AC. If that doesn't work try just the battery. If neither works then it is possible that there is a short in the system board which is causing the battery to overheat. Basically, there are three possibilities, the AC adapter, the battery, and the system board.

Magellan Roadmate 1212 won't stay on when unplugged


Man, I DO commiserate with you on that one, but did you specify to them that the battery should be checked?
as that is probably your problem, now that I know the unit has been checked and the worst possible outcome
from your buying an extra battery is that you will HAVE AN EXTRA BATTERY for those times when you need
total portability.

So, make sure you try a brand new battery and if that solves your problem, then buy several.

After replacing the battery I have no power at all


Possible causes:
1. New battery defective. ( Open circuit between battery cells ) Seen it before, therefore, possible.

2. Battery terminals not making connection ( check terminals )

3. Battery has different polarity than the original battery. ( Positive post and the negative post are reversed ) They do sell the reverse battery, therefore, possible. Basically, a battery hooked up backwards.
That would cause the Main fuse to blow resulting the no power in the vehicle.
