My car wont start after I have driven a while and turn off engine. When I try to start it cranks well but will not turn over. If I let it sit for 20 minutes it will start again???

Sounds like you're in tank fuel pump is starting to go bad..happened to my astro van a few years ago..kept doing this until one day it just didn't work. Have someone do a fuel pressure test before and after turning the engine over...Also try this..before trying to start your engine turn your switch to ON for about ten seconds and listen very carefully for the pump running to prime the fuel system and injectors it should run for about five seconds...then try starting the engine...get into the habit of waiting those 10 seconds to insure proper priming of the system..good luck

Why doesn't the water pick up on my carpet shampooer???

Hi Julie! If the cleaner is not picking up the dirty water this usually means something is not sealed off properly. Try these steps below to restore suction to your cleaner.

1. Remove the clean water tank. Recline the handle & let the handle lie down on the floor.
2. Remove the dirty water tank. Check that the dirty water tank cap is on the dirty water tank and tightened closed.
3. Clear the filter screen of any hair or debris.
4. Remove the nozzle. Clean the nozzle of any hair or debris.
5. Located on the machine behind the nozzle is a 2nd filter screen. Clean it of any hair or debris.
6. Replace the nozzle.
7. Replace the dirty water tank. Press down on all sides so that it is flush to the cleaner base.

Give it a try! The suction should be restored to your cleaner. If not I have included a video link where you may view these instructions. Hope this helps! Loss of Suction Won pick up Hoover Max Extract 77 FH50230 FH50222...

Hi, Sounds like not enough fuel, in low gear motor turns over a lot faster, using more fuel, high gear it chugs on a trickle of gas. When i used to work in a garage, the final test was a long steep hill that would show flaws in the fuel delivery system, and everything else to, well worth the extra few minutes time. Also, if the big fuel tanker is at your favorite gas station, you might better keep driving bye, or else you can pay 4 bucks a gallon for mud, rust, and water. There is a sock screen on the pick-up tube in your gas tank, the screen is so fine and dense, that gas will flow easily thru it, but water has to be sucked thru. Suppose there is 4 gallons of water in the bottom of your tank, car sitten still the water is half-way covering the pick-up sock, car is running good. Junior stomps on the gas, then hits the brakes for the stop sign down the street. The water sloshes in the tank, covering the pick-up sock several brief moments, forcing the fuel pump to suck water thru the dense screen, causing all kinds of problems. Up here I have a big ice slab in the bottom of my tank that grows each time i get gas until april. Now I hear that ethenol in the fuel is supposed to cure all that. When I was young all the cars had drain cocks on the bottom of the fuel tank to let the water out. Best Wishes

How do i clean black honeycomb filter inside fan area?

Put filter in bathtub, or sink if it'll fit, and swish it in the moderately hot soapy water, use can use dish soap. Then rinse off with moderately hot water but not scalding, then tamp it off onto a towel to get as much water off of it as you can. Your supposed to then let it dry for a while before reuse.

Vaillant boiler - heating OK, but no hot water.

Most likey problem is the diverter valve, not energising fully. This in turn will not move the little plastic lever arm that actuates the microswitch on the side, sending the signal to ignite.

You can buy a diaghram kit from most local plumb centres, you need to replace the diaghram and seals, don't forget the silicon grease to ensure the plunger doesnt stick. Kits less than a tenner.

You should have noticed before it stopped working completely the water had reduced in temperature before the weeks it failed.

To make sure it is a diverter valve fault, depress the microswitch if you can, when the hot water is flowing and hey presto the demand for hot water light should shine.

Can't remove the filter from my Pur Flavor Options faucet mount water filter

When mine gets stuck I stick the handle of a fork or spoon into the hole where the water comes out and use that to unscrew it. Works like a charm every time.

Kenmore AC2044-1 question ASAP!

If it says "Clean Cell Now" and it is a new machine, it is broken. I have six, yes six, of this model. They are all new and you shouldn't have to clean the filter/cells for a few months.

The way to clean is:

  1. Unplug
  2. remove the white cover
  3. remove the prefilter. Good time to clean the prefilter by removing the 2 retention clips and gently swing the prefilter outward. Clean or groom it with a vacuum. Use the upholstery brush. wash the prefilter in warm, soapy water. No Chlorine! Rinse clean with regular water. Wipe with a paper towel and let dry completely. It is okay to gently use a hair blower to speed up the drying process.
  4. Onto the Cell.
  5. The cell can be washed one of two ways. Either in a hot tub of water or in a dishwasher.
  6. Wear gloves to protect your hands. Never touch the fins or wires. It will ruin them and cut you up. Use the two handles.
  7. Use hot water and dish detergent.
  8. No chlorine and no abrasives.
  9. Soak for 10 minutes, then dip a couple of times to remove stuck dust/dirt/schmutz.
  10. Rinse with clean water.
  11. Allow to dry
  12. Allow to dry
  13. Allow to dry
  14. Okay to use a hair dryer to speed up process.
  15. Reinstall
  16. Power up
  17. Press and hold CHECK button for 3 secs to reset.

When you add water, you should notice bubbles (just a few) on top of the water.  When the water no longer has bubbles, the additive is shot, and you should wash out the tank.  We have dirty air, and it takes about 2 weeks for us.  I spray it with Murphy's Soap to soak a few minutes and wipe it out with a sponge.  Rinse.   Spray the wheel similarly (all over) and spray with a kitchen hose, as hot as possible.  You may have to repeat.  I clean my wheel between tank cleaning, so it doesn't build up.  You should use the additive, because the water has to be slippery to work with the wheel.  Maybe you can find a different "wetting solution,"  that would be cheaper;  Venta gets an arm and a leg for it.  Good Luck.  I like the performance of mine, but it is temperamental.
