SOURCE: Need replacement microwave to fit existing trim kit

Finally built up the courage to call GE Appliance number and weave my way through the phone menu system. Pressed the right menu option (sales) to speak to someone about trim kits. Found out that the trim kit model number is JX1527MWW. Then called back to select a different menu option (other) and learned from someone else that since the trim kit model is more than 1-2 years old, there's a slim-to-none chance any new microwave models will work with it, and even if there was they couldn't easily cross-reference against a model that old to tell me which one (or something to that effect). So I hit a dead end. Only option for me at this point is to buy a new microwave with new trim kit.

(Personal note: I think the trim kit business is a racket, in bed with the microwave manufacturers. Why else would there be no standard dimensions for microwaves by now--like refrigerators have--and why is it a few pieces of sheet metal cost over $150? Pretty convenient that every microwave model needs its own trim kit model!)

SOURCE: Volvo-penta aq271c, trim will go down, but not pwr at relay

First check the switch-- does it have power, then check the solenoid to see if it works-- there are two. One is for down, One is for up. If you get power from the solenoid-- outgoing-- check connections going to pump motor.

SOURCE: 3 wire tilt/trim installation help

If you have a multimeter which can cost less than $10 or a test light. What you want to do is have the up button pressed and see which 2 wires have power. The 3rd wire should not have power. Then press the down button and see which to wires have power. It should change. Most likely the black is common and feeds power to the switch. When pushed up the blue gets power. When pushed down the green gets power. You may have to provide a ground to the motor from the battery.

SOURCE: I have a 1994 150 hp Yamaha outboard motor with

Stop! Dont replace the pump...I would bet that it is the "down" Solenoid that went haywire. I would begin by replacing the Down is a far easier and cheaper fix and if your pump works to raise the engine then that tells me that it is not faulty. The Down solenoid looks just like a starter solenoid and the one that you are looking to replace has a GREEN wire to it. Yellow with a red stripe is for the starter. Blue wire is the up solenoid. So replace the one with the green wire going to it and I bet it will fix your problem.

Finding year from a ssrial number on a mercury out bord

go google and type in--- mercury outboard serial numbers -- there are sites that listhp against serial numbers against year of manufacture
while you serial number may not be listed they state that the beginning of the number to the next changing number is the year of make
for example ---4261012 to 4302999 ( next number 48103665,year 2002) may be year 1999 so your number would be a 1999 model
The information provided will take a bit of understanding as it appears that the manufacturer changed the method a number of times
talk with a mercury / mariner service shop as they will have the information on hand

How do I replace the trim tilt motor on my mariner 90

most of these will come off if you lift the engine to fully up and lock the lever up to hold it there ! Then you can access the trim motor , clean off around it then undo and remove the motor after disconnecting the wires near the carbs !

Boat manual

it normal would be on top of the motor were all your electrical comes into the motor .you would see 50 amp fuses next to them there should be 4 round black contactors that have all your wires from your tilt motor and your trim motor connected to them. but if it still works its not the contactors .try this have some one pull up on the outdrive while you hit the switch . if it goes up its your tilt motor has water in it or was damaged by hitting something . water damage is fixable only if its fresh water .salt water you need not waist your time . buy a new one .and if it is fresh water ,if you no how to take stuff apart and putt it back togeather again...the tilt motor need to be cleaned ,up and new seal kit put in it .it should work fine again .

I want to change my big foot 60hp from power tilt to power trim how do i do that??? 90850260 that is my serial number what is the year model?

I dont knowthe year ,that should be stamped on the id plate. As for tilt and trim----- in the lowest position the leg will only move slowly out and up that is when it is in the trim mode, after that it goes into the tilt mode and the leg travels considerably faster, this works going up and down,putting the leg down, it will travel faster until the last foot or so then it goes into the trim mode automaticaly and travels slower but with more power---you cant split them.It needs the extra power to be able to"trim"" the boat whilst it has the water pressure against it at ,say 25 knots. To test what i am saying ,puthe leg down as far as it will go ,stand on the anti cavitation plate and push the button to raise the leg .You will see it will only traveh ashort way out and up be fore stopping because it doesnt have the extra power to lift you as it did in the first foot and a half.thatis the system and you cant change it if that is unclear take it to a dealer ,he may explain it better---------"youdoit"
