The compressor is stuck // locked up. the start capacitor may be bad, they have what is called a hard start kit for this problem.Or the unit may be old and leakage past the piston seals has bound the compressor. Or it could have stoped at ust that bad position where it can't get enough ooomph frmthe capacitorr to get it to rotate at this position. If you know somebody with a hammer drill, place a small 2x4 along the base of the compressor and vibrate it with the hamer dreill - this may free it up while you hear it hum. If not, you will probably need a hard start kit

Carrier 58STA/STX furnace false starts even when off or temperature set lower than current.


Is it possible the drain is plugged? The newer furnaces have a moisture drain and will shut down if they are blocked., shutting them down and restarting will reset fault, but will come right back if not fixed.

It stops before 2 minutes and when i turn it back on, it vibrates for less than 2 seconds and stops automatically.


Firstly, please check if the metal shaft is loose. Its that part where your brush head connects with the toothbrush handle. If its loose then it has to be replaced. Contact Philips support for a replacement, if its under warranty.

Please plug in the charger with the handle on charger base and hold the on/off button for 7 seconds in order to hear two beeps. Please hold the on/off button again to hear one beep. Do you hear two beeps followed by one?

If yes, then your unit has been reset. Please leave it on charging for 24 hours and then use it again. It should be able to hold charge now.

My graco monitor has one red light and a row of green, instead of all green, and it is not making any sound anymore


Try pairing the parent and nursery units again. First, turn off all of the units. Place the broken parent unit within 5 feet of the nursery unit. Turn on the parent unit. Turn on the nursery unit. Within a few seconds, the top 4 green LEDs should shut off. Then you'll hear a few beeps and the connection LED should turn from red to green. If this doesn't work, power off and try again using the AC adapters instead of battery power. I did it without plugging in the parent unit but the battery died as soon as the units paired up again. It's working fine from the docking station though.

Can hear motor working turned up fully stillnot


Be sure what you hear is not the fan instead of the compressor. Unplug the unit, wait 10 minutes, and plug it back in. Listen for the compressor to start up, or even listen for a faint "hum and click" sound. That would be the compressor trying to start.

There is a high pitch that people over approx age 30 cannot detect. My son and daughter complained of a high pitched noise coming from our gas grill, but I could hear nothing. I turned the gas tank off,...


What they are hearing is the regulator. There is a diaphragm in the regulator that is vibrating due to the rush of gas flowing through it. This is easily corrected. First, the next time you light the grill, turn the tank valve only one quarter to one half of a turn and light the grill, once the grill is lit, if you have trouble bringing the grill to the temperature you want, you can open the tank valve more and the noise shouldn't start. The reason the noise won't start then is because by that time, the regulator's diaphragm is at the temperature of the gas flowing through it and, subsequently, will not vibrate. If the noise starts again, you can go to just about any home improvement store and get a replacement regulator.

My duo therm roof top camper air conditioner just shut off and will not come back on. Can hear a click when turning on now but nothing else. Note that heater will not come one either.


The click that you are hearing is the relay control board in the rooftop unit. This means that you are getting 12V to the board. It sounds like you are not getting 120V to the AC unit. Check the breakers in the breaker panel to make sure they are OK. If they are fine, then turn off the AC for 5 to 10 minutes and try again. There is a thermal protection device in the unit that prevents you from turning it right back on after a shut down. Try putting the thermostat to fan only operation. If the fan does not come on in fan only mode, then you have thrown a breaker.

Hope this helps,

Jeff

GE Portable Airconditioner - Model APN10AA Serial # GG509122


Ours was leaking water. After taking the covers off,cleaning it,and draining all the water out, I started getting the same problem with the light coming on every 7 minutes. I actually added some water to the system till it was too full and then drained it out through the plug. The light still came on every 7 minutes until I turned the unit off and then unplugged it for a few minutes. I plugged it back in, turned it on and reset the temperature. It seemed to reset itself and kept running normally. BB
