Question about Dryers

3 Answers

Won't start. Just tries and then displays 8.8. I'm sure you are familiar with this scenario. This problem has been discussed for years on the internet. It used to reset and then start on anywhere from 1 to a dozen tries. It is now taking from a half hour to a day to reset. Please tell me what this is. I have bought three sets of these; one for myself and one set for each of two children. One set has already been replaced out of frustration with LG. My model is MDE5599AYW serial #34478959ZD

    That sounds logical to me, but what in your opinion would cause it to overheat? It is always set at the lowest setting. It drove me nuts about a year ago and then worked fine for months without a mishap. Now it ony runs when it wants to and is taking forever to reset itself before I can even try again to start it.

It sounds like the mother board has failed due to over heating. This is a problem that LG has not addressed as of yet due to the sales in parts. The reset is problematic in itself but if it doesn't recognize that it has ben reset then the main control board " mother board " is responsible for this task. It is a bit tricky to change, evin for the pro's, so I wouldn't try this one on my own. Usually when it is removed incorrectly there is damage to the other two boards that connect to it.

Hi,

The age old remedy for this error is :

1) Use a heating pad and warm the display.
2) Open the dryer door as well to let the warm air in.
Thanks for contacting Fixya.

Poor fuel consumption


And you have done what?

Discussed at a repair shop or dealer?

What advice do you want, you would understand?

Is the car in the shop once or twice a year?

Is one shop familiar with the vehicles history & maintenance?

Vcr not working


Hello!
Sorry to admit, but your VCR's signal processor is down. On screen display is generated by microprocessor, but video signal by different circuitry. Anyway, there is nothing you can do, except surrender to repair shop. Or, worst case scenario: buy another one. Even though I won't recommend to do so. "Modern" VCRs are cheap plastic toys, won't last too long, no replacement parts available, etc. If you have some technician's background, you may open the unit and look for "bloated" capacitors in power supply area or check electrolytic capacitors with "in circuit" capacitor checked, if you have one. If not: try to look for reputable repair shop, what stays in business for a while. there, still might be the people, familiar with VCR problems.
good luck with your project,
thanks,
Alex.

I have a 96 pontiac grand am that doesnt start all the time


Starting Problem # 1: Engine Won't Crank At All

Scenario: You turn the key, but nothing happens: And by nothing, we mean there is no dash light, no sound, nada. The first thing you should do in this case is to pop the hood and check the battery. Either the battery is completely dead or there's a wiring problem in the starting system. Try jump-starting the battery. If that doesn't work, you'll probably have to call for assistance.

Scenario: When you turn the key, you hear a rapid clicking sound, and the dash lights dim. This is your classic low-battery symptom. Jump-starting the battery should get the engine to start.However, if you keep experiencing this problem, you could have a bad battery or alternator, or it could be some­thing as simple as a loose alternator belt. Take your car to a mechanic just as soon as you can.

Scenario: When you turn the key, the lights on the dash come on, but you don't hear anything. Make sure you have the shift selector all the way in park. Move it out of park and then back, or try starting it with the shifter in neutral. If your car has a manual transmission, make sure you have the clutch pressed all the way to the floor. If that doesn't help, you can try jump-starting the battery, but it probably won't work. There's a good chance your car has a bad starter or a problem in the starting circuit. That could mean a prob­lem in the ignition switch, neutral safety switch or starter sole­noid.

Scenario: The dash lights come on when you turn the key, and then go right out, and the engine doesn't crank when you turn the key to start, But, the lights slowly come back on when you release the key. This is another classic: the bad battery connection. When you turn the key to start, the starter pulls so much current that it breaks the connection. Then, when you release the key, the connection slowly comes back. The connection provides enough power to turn the dash lights on, but not enough to crank the starter. Cleaning and tightening the battery terminals may fix this prob­lem.

Scenario: When you turn the key, you hear a single, hard clunk. Turn the headlights on and try again. Do the lights dim slightly when you turn the key? If so, you probably have a bad starter or a seized engine. If the headlights don't dim at all, or just barely dim, there may be a connection problem between the starter solenoid and the starter itself.

Scenario: When you turn the key, you hear a loud, scraping or grinding sound like metal on metal. The starter drive is bad, or the ring gear on the flywheel damaged, or both. You may get the starter to engage if you try turning the key a couple of times, but let go of the key right away if you hear the noise again. If the car does start, you should drive it right over to local repair shop and have the problem fixed.

Starting Problem #2: Engine Cranks but It Won't Start

Scenario: The engine seems to crank normally, but the engine doesn't even sound as if it's trying to start. Is there gas in the tank? Gas gauges are notoriously inaccurate. If you have to move your head to one side to get the needle to move off empty, try adding some gas to the tank.

Scenario: When you first turn the key on, you don't hear the fuel pump run. In cars with electronic fuel injection, you should hear a light hum a few seconds from around the fuel tank. That's the electric fuel pump running. If you don't hear the fuel pump run for a couple seconds when you first turn the key on, try cranking the engine until the oil light goes out. That may start the pump running and allow the engine to start.

Scenario: The engine cranks normally, and it sounds like it wants to start, but it won't. You may have flooded the engine. Hold the gas floor and try again. (Let the gas pedal up when it finally starts). If it's raining out, the ignition system may be wet.

Scenario: The engine cranks unevenly in a repetitive-sounding pattern. You may have a bad timing chain or timing belt. Call a tow truck and have it towed to the repair shop.


Starting Problem # 3: Engine Starts but It Shuts Off

Scenario: The engine starts right up, but shuts off as soon as you release the key. This is the classic symptom of a bad ignition switch. A new switch should fix it.

Scenario: The engine starts and runs, but when you put the transmission in gear, the car lurches and the engine shuts off. The converter clutch in the transmission torque converter probably is engaging when it shouldn't. On some cars, you can bypass this by disconnecting the torque converter clutch solenoid; but unless you know which wire to pull, forget about it. Call for assistance.

Scenario: The engine starts and runs, but seems to idle slowly and stalls when you come to a stop. This probably is a fast idle problem. When the engine is cold, it's supposed to idle a little faster than normal to keep the engine running. You may be able to drive using two feet until the engine warms up: one on the gas to hold the idle up a little and the other for the brake. However, don't keep driving it this way. Take your car to your repair shop just as soon as you

Have 2002 Yukon that won't start if under 3/8 or 1\4 of gas


hi, the banging on the tank is a typical fuel pump scenario , but to last for years is not very likely , i think it needs to be diagnosed to see what's missing when it wont start .
