Question about Dryers

1 Answer

One of the bulbs in my twin cluster ceiling light is intermittent. Sometimes it comes on a few minutes after the other bulb but most of the time not at all.

I inspected the wiring - nothing seems to be loose.

Odd problem with ceiling fan and LED

This is a common issue with LED bulbs in the application that you have it installed in, When you changed the socket it reset the unit. Most of those wont ever see an LED because the LED wont draw enough current. Then control box depends on a current draw in order to stay on. LEED bulbs don't have enough current draw.

2006 roush cluster lights not working sometimes when I hit a bump they come on

It sounds like a bad connection it might be worth pushing or twisting the bulbs in and out a few times inside the cluster to enable a better connection

The problem is a blown bulb, you will need to remove the cluster and replace the bulb. you will need to remove the cover around the cluster and then you will see the four screws holding the cluster. remove thoughs screws and pull cluster out slowly. the cluster will need to be pulled out enough to get to wiring that plugs into the rear of it. unhook the connector from the rear. with the cluster out you will see the bulbs on the rear, locate area of the bulb, remove the bulb and to make sure its the correct bulb shine a light through the hole of the bulb you removed and look at the front of it to see if thats the engine light. good day.

The bulbs for your instrument cluster are inserted into small sockets that push in and turn to lock. Over time the contacts get dirty and loose causing them to either work intermittently or not at all. A dirty or worn dimmer switch can cause this as well, but it would affect all bulbs in the circuit not just some of them. Remove the instrument cluster and gently clean the circuit board contacts for the bulbs with an eraser. Clean the contacts on the sockets and bend the contacts upward somewhat to give them some tension when installed.

Change dash bulb 2001 tausus

There are 4 screws on the trim around your instrument cluster trim remove those and the entire cluster of gauges comes out enough to reach around and unhook the wiring harnesses from the back then you can remove the entire cluster. Autozone carries a 10 pack of 3.78 watt bulbs for around $3 best to just replace them all if 1 burned out that means its about time the others will be burning out soon to. I replaced a few of mine that burned out and didn't think to replace them all and sure enough about a month later 2 more burned out. Had to take the whole thing out and do it again this time I replaced all the original bulbs. At autozone the part number for the 10 pack is 194-box or if you are just changing 1 or 2 I think the twin pack part number is 194-l

Refrigerator turns off and on (intermittently) unpredictably

There's probably something sticky inside the button between the plunger and the housing or the spring inside is weak. Try to clean it out. If that doesn't work then replace it.

Question about light bulb problem in ceiling fan

Check wiring @ ceiling. Should b a black, white, green & red wire coming frm fan. Green is ground. Black & Red is power. White is neutral. Black provides power to fan, red provides lat power 4 lights. Remove light assembly, blue wire provides power. B sure 2 turn off power 2 fan b 4 working on it w/switch & breaker. Maybe lose wire connection or pinched wire grounding out. Fans require vibration proof bulbs regular bulb elements will break after short time use. Fan bulbs have larger filiments inside bulb.

By map lights I assume you mean the ones at the top of the windsheild on the ceiling? They are easy, but it takes a lot of force to pry the assembly from the ceiling without damaging anything.
First make sure they are not hot, so make sure the ones you touch have been off for at least a few minutes. The whole assembly comes off of the ceiling, just pry back the edges to get a good grip and pull down. It should come straight off. Then pull the old bulbs, wipe the new ones and install them with a lint free cloth. The light cluster will press back up into the ceiling.
For the ash tray light, it gets a bit more complicated. The light is under the center console. With the gray interior in my car, the console top is black, and that's what you're prying up. You can pull (pry) the center console straight up, and tilt it to the side, where you can look in from the side and get to the bulb. It's a little thing just where you think it would be. Again, install without getting oils or fingerprints on it, and if you do, wipe them off. The console will press back down with a little wiggling.

Light bulbs burn out

Use bulbs specifically designed for ceiling fans - they say "ceiling fan" on the package (Home Depot, Lowes both carry). The slightest regular vibration (like a fan rotating) causes normal incandescent elements to burn out within days or weeks.

If you wired black to black, white to white and green or bare to ground, you wired it right. Sometimes there are two blacks (hots) one for the light and one for the fan, but most of the time you hook the light wiring parallel to the fan wiring unless you install a remote switch.
