The fan usually wont fail in that manner, If it still works normally, you can go to www.almico.com and download a program called speed fan. It is free and it will tell you the temp of everything in that computer.

Sounds like the backlight or power supply for it failed. If the unit is out of warranty, try and open up the back and have a look for the area that burned up. Make sure it is unplugged. Damage to the power supply? or the inverter board? or the backlight panel itself?

Overloaded grinder no longer turns after puff of smoke!


the shear pin, which goes through the grinder blade base and the motor shaft has 'sheared' off the protect the motor from overload. The metal bits of the pin need to be removed from both the grinder part and the shaft, a new one inserted. It is a 'pressed fit', so it will be hard to remove.
After the bits are removed, a common 'roll pin' of the proper diameter should be a suitable replacement

While starting car little smock come for few mnt why ?


If you get a little puff of white/blue smoke just at start up , it probably means that one or more of your valve guide seals are worn.
While engine not running , a bit of oil gets in the cylinder , when it starts the oil burns off causing smoke. If it was smoking all the time , I would say rings are worn. If it is black smoke at start up , it indicates a fuel mixture problem. The valve guide seal problem may get worse over time.
On your post you say " for few mnt " if that means a few moments , than Valve guide seals , if you mean a few minutes , than more serious piston ring problem. Change your oil , and add a can of RESTORE , it will fill small scratches in cylinder walls , but will not fix badly worn rings.

I was having a similar problem. I tried starting it up with the switch case open. I saw a very tiny puff of smoke come out of the switch. I replaced the switch and it was fine.

The fan comes on but the burner won't kick on and then shuts off


Check your fuel line for cracks and also the air line. Most likely is the CAD flame sensor, easy to change and only 3 bucks or so. Might also want to check all of your filters. Mine was doing the same thing and it was the high heat limit control and the flame sensor.

If I try to drag something into the dock it disappears...


Drag the file you are trying to put into the dock to the right of the silver line at the right of the dock. The file you want to delete, let it disappear in the 'puff of smoke' and then go into Macintosh HD and find the file and drag it over the trash icon. I hope it works!


Thanks, Logan
