Question about Dryers

I have a ceiling fan w/ light. Not remote controlled. Bulb and wiring are both fine. Last night I heard the string being pulled. I opened my eyes and saw fan light on. I reached up and turned it off.

What would cause this to happen?

Words to song, Your the best thing that happened to me.

Best Thing That Ever Happened to Me
Gladys Knight & The Pips
"I've had my share of life's ups and downs
But fate's been kind, the downs have been few
I guess you could say that I've been lucky
Well, I guess you could say that it's all because of you If anyone should ever write my life story
For whatever reason there might be
Ooh, you'll be there between each line of pain and glory
'Cause you're the best thing that ever happened to me
Ah, you're the best thing that ever happened to me
Oh, there have been times when times were hard
But always somehow I made it, I made it through
'Cause for every moment that I've spent hurting
There was a moment that I spent, ah, just loving you, yeah
If anyone should ever write my life story
Oh, for whatever reason there might be
Oh, you'll be there between each line of pain and glory
'Cause you're the best thing that ever happened to me
Oh, you're the best thing that ever happened to me
I know, you're the best thing, oh, that ever happened to me
Hey, hey, hey".

Timing chain jump and caused timing to be off. costly repair. what's the cause and is their a fix so this don't happen again.

Who told you that the Chain Jumped? This is NOT COMMON and hard to believe that it happened unless you had a Failure Internally.. A Chain Tensioner is the only possible cause if everything is intact...

Vw jetta vr6 battery and ABS light on

You could have an error code that caused the engine to shut off but that is really rare. There are a lot of things that cause the abs light to come on. Brake wear, faulty brake components, and/or sensors, reservoir levels.

Has it ever happened before? Has it happened again since the first time?

What can cause my honda 600 rr to lose power

Hi im having this problem too, its happening on my CBR 600 f2 1995, it usually happens when I give it some between the revs 6000 - 11000 it feels as though the engine cuts out then back on, it only happens for a split second, I have recently had a new regulator rectifier fitted along with a new battery could this be causing the problem, its only happened since then. Also its only happened since I last filled up with fuel, could it be a dodgy batch of fuel?

My wireless router will drop the connection for anywhere from a few seconds to a few minutes. This happens regularly. I bought a new router and even a new internet service provider and the problem still...

While there may be many possible causes and solutions for this, typically this kind of behavior on a home network is a result of IP address conflicts. If there are multiple devices on the network, and nay of them have the same addresses it could be causing your issue. Gaming systems, printers, videocameras, DVRs, oftentimes cause this to happen.
Have you examined the system log on the router to see exactly what is taking place at the moment that the connection is dropping? This may help narrow down the cause.

Picture goes off and on every couple of seconds

If you are hooked up to a HD source if the signal is too high will cause this to happen. Normally this will happen due to signal interuptions such as signal being low will cause freeze, too high will cause it to go out and cause the TV to show default blue.
Good luck to you.
