You can clean the bowl/basecontacts with a baking soda and vinegar. Then make sure the connection is secure when you placing the bowl. If the pump does not work after that contact Aerogrow for a replacment pump.

This is my third year now, but this time the AREOGEADEN PUMP WILL NOT START BACK UP unless I readjust the water bowl every morning and the water level low light is always blinking day and night. Please...


Hi, fishypete here.

There's a float and a magnetic switch in the fill tube; it's probably blocked by a bit of debris or a root and keeping the switch from accurately indicating a low water condition, producing the constant blinking.

The pump issue could be a few things.
1. the pump may be failing. It's a small magnetic drive pump, and the impeller (the small shaft with a rotating plastic blade inside the motor) may have worn out. Usually you can tell if you have a motor that requires a few taps on it to get it running.
2. the electrical contacts that connect at the back of the bowl and the lamp arm might be dirty, or not connecting properly. Jostling the unit may be getting it to connect.
3. certain models cycle the pump and it might be in the off position. I assume you've noticed it going on and off if you have that model, so I'm assuming this is not the problem.
4. the pump will eventually fail and need replacing. If this one is 3 years old that may be the problem. Properly cleaning the impeller regularly will keep it working the longest, but these types of pumps have a limited lifespan because the run nearly constantly and heat and wear attack the epoxy encapsulated motor, the shaft/impeller, and the walls of the impeller well.

Hope this helps,

fishypete

New watch - how to start it - battery?


mcdevito75 here, Brand new watch. If it has a stem, (winder) look for a small piece of plastic between the stem and case, remove this piece of plastic and push down the stem to start your watch. If your watch is all buttons, look for a small plastic tab on the back cover, remove this plastic tab and your watch will start.

Battery charger red light on, and two min. green charges light comes on. But the battery is still flat. Is there a fix or throw it away


1.) take battery out. no charge cables connected.
2.) bend battery contacts up slightly
3.) place battery in at an angle, so that 4 contact leads are touching, but the metal backing of the batery is not touching the contacts that I had just raised
4.) click the 4 contacts together back and forth repeatedly, at a quick pace (about 2-3 times every second.)
5.) what a relief to see the amber light come on! Place the battery completely in, close cover, press power button, and happy to see the green light and a boot =)

Kodak DX3900 camera can't get power from battery


Remove the batteries and clean the battery contacts inside the camera with a soft cloth (a heavy buildup on the contacts may require cleaning with a fine wire brush, steel wool, or sandpaper). Remove any residue that the cleaning leaves in the camera, and then reinstall the batteries. This clears most power-on problems, but if yours persists, check the Kodak troubleshooting guide at:

Dell Inspiron 2200 won't start


First thing I would try is to unplug the machine, remove the battery and clean the contacts on the battery and in the battery housing with a pencil eraser. Blow out the shavings and reinstall battery - the way it sounds is that there may be dirt or corrosion causing an interference between the computer and battery contacts - for charging and powering up.

Battery indictes low and turns off


I replaced the battery on my TomTom 910 and still no improvement so eventually sprayed the contacts with switch cleaner. Now, no problem. Probably didn't need to replace the battery.

If you unit is outside guarantee then this is worth trying. Might be as well to detach the battery and all other power supplies until the switch cleaner has dried.

Another possible problem is the rubber gromit which forces the contacts to make contact. You could replace this with a bit of rubber from a pencil.

Hope this helps you.
