Volume control not working

Left and right wires are like the ends of a carbon resistor.
The centre connection is the slider that slides along the carbon resistance.
Spray inside the device,
The centre sliders often loose connection from overuse.
Carefully take apart and clean & put slight tension back on centre slider.
Look to see if carbon track is worn out?

Take the centre wire off the Pot and try it on either end.
One will be full volume the other will be lowest volume.

Read the Ohms value of the Pot (stamped on)
or use a cheap Ohm section of MultiMeter
Note the size of threaded area
Get similar to take it's place

Lutron 1000w skylark s-103p. The lights hooked up to this dimmer had always worked. now sometimes when i hit the on buttom they don't come on at all. the dimmer is probably5 years old.What do you...

Older dimmer switches use rheostats to adjust the resistant loads on the switch. Since this is a mechanical operation, over time they become loose or corroded. So it sounds like this has happened to your dimmer switch and you should replace it with a more modern switch that isn't as mechanical.

I have a Hoover windtunnel, model U5470900. The on-off switch is broken. How do I order the parts and what is the instructions for replacing the switch?

I think this is a common problem, as the actual switch is located behind the cleaning tools caddy. The switch is toggled via a long, plastic rod connected to the thumb slider on the handle. It's a comically poor design. I'm not sure, but I think you'd have to replace the entire handle assembly if the slider no longer works. An easier solution is to simply plug the vacuum into a surge protector with an on/off switch.

Start switch doesn't work

the switch is bad or there is a loose wire connection, if you have a multi-meter you can check the resistance on the switch, it should be 0.0-0.2 if the switch is good it could be the pump.If the pump is bad don't bother fixing it.

2000 buick century custom. fuel gauge fluctuates between empty and 1/2 when level falls below 1/2 tank. low fuel light works. problem sending unit (how hard to change), gauge, or other?

The sender unit has a fine resistance wire with a slider to read the level, the slider or wires are worn and making intermittent contact, the low fuel light is a seperate switch so it will still work.access to the sender is usually under the rear seat cushon, under the soundproofing and a cover, have a look and describe what you have .

The on/off slide mechanism doesn't work.

If you are good with fixing things you can take it apart and see if you can reposition the slider switch to original condition. The little rubber plugs or bumpers has screws under them for the case. You will need a decent small screw driver to remove these screws. Just remember how the parts fit together and when you get the screws out the case can be gently pried off. Again, you will have to know how it fits back together again, but it is not that hard to do. The slider is either worn, or popped loose from the body of shaver. You can look on ebay and find a replacement shaver for cheap.

Good luck

Camera turns itself off

I have the same issue, I've pulled my camera apart, it's a faulty contact in the slider on/off switch assembly. I'm planning to remove the slider ass'y and check the contacts. Ricoh state it's a common problem, new switch ass'y is about $40 AU
