Mine's a bent shaft. I guess only Victa agents can replace/repair the centrifugal clutch or internal broken cable?


not necessarily--- the broken drive cable can be removed /replaced by removing the trimmer head from the shaft at the bottom
undo the clamp and if there is a small screw/ bolt into the shaft undo that as well and pull the head off
the flexible drive cable will slip out
check the ends and they should be square in form
Mostly the cable breaks but occasionally that square section will wear round
slip in a new cable and reassemble

Related: F2 E6 on Whirlpool RBD305PDS14 double oven - blank display


Equipment is Whirlpool double oven RBD305PDS14 built-in.  After a very stormy summer 2007, I thought a power surge may have zapped the control board.  Problem initially presented on display as error & fault "E6 F2"; simply pressing "Timer Off" would usually clear this error & fault code.

However, some months later, the display would often go completely blank followed by the beep sequence "short-long-short-short-short" (Morse code: dit dah dit dit dit).  No error & fault code would appear.  Pressing any keypad oven control did not work at all in this condition.  When power was cycled at the breaker panel, the usual "PF" with clock display did not appear.

[TURN OVEN POWER OFF AT BREAKER!!!]

After following the excellent information on "how to remove the control panel" posted in this forum, I first tested the "control panel thermal fuse" (refer to the tech sheet that should be behind the control panel once it is removed).  It showed a closed circuit.

I turned my attention to the "flexible" keypad connector cable (error & fault code "E6 F2" is a keypad or keypad connector problem; again, refer to tech sheet).  The control panel has a board mounted female connector with two tabs that may be gently pulled upward to release the flexible cable.

I cleaned the flexible cable contact area (it seats into the board mounted female connector) carefully with a Q tip and some isopropyl alcohol.  I reinserted the flexible cable and gently pressed down on the two tabs (noted above) on the board mounted female connector.  VERY GENTLY tug on the flexible cable to insure it is gripped by the connector.

After all of this monkey business, I re-mounted the control panel display panel on the oven and restored power.  So far, so good.  After applying power, the "PF" with clock display always appears.  I am able to set the clock and press "Start".  Over functions normally.  The clock displays as normal and I no longer observe the problem I described above.

BTW, I noted the incoming 240V has transient suppression (no surge protection, however).

Error code 0300 on disk drive A


0300 Flexible disk drive (A) boot error POST has detected the flexible disk drive (A) reported an error during its self-test.

To correct this:

1. Verify a diskette can be properly inserted and removed from the flexible disk drive.

2. Verify the flexible drive type configured in the Setup utility matches the flexible disk drive installed in the HP Server.

3. Verify all data cables and power cables are firmly connected.

4. If the problem persists, your flexible disk drive may need to be replaced. Contact your service representative.

My 60d finding ERR 01 with my tokina 12-24mm lenses. I try to clean the contact but after a few shoot the problem remain


I have the exact same problem, it's the aperture flex cable which have a design flaw. At 12mm the flex is stretched at maximum and over the years loses its flexibility and breaks. Mine works fine from 24 to 15mm. Below 15 the camera always reports err01. All flex cables in the tokina are welded -IMHO you need to take it to a professional.

My cardiology II tubing is hard in only one area. What can I put on it to soften that one area? Diane dbmrn@msn.com


Depending on the exact plastic, you may try wrapping the affected stretch with cotton cloth (which you don't value) and soaking it with either laundry bleach or 'bathroom cleaner' with bleach (stronger solution). This will only help a little and for a fairly short period of weeks. If it is a short stretch (1"-2"), you could excise the hardened part and use vacuum line connectors available at auto parts stores.
Unfortunately, that very flexible tubing isn't used for much else but a medical supply house may have it available.

The brakes on a clever lite rolling walker will not engage when the grips are squeezed


There are adjusters on the brake cables that are designed to solve this problem. The cables for the brakes run inside a flexible housing. When you squeeze the handle, the cable should engage the brake. The problem is that the cables inside the housing stretch over time and do not work as well. There is a threaded adjuster at the handle where the housing of the cable goes into the handle. If you turn this adjuster counterclockwise it will, in effect, make the housing longer and the brake cable tighter (shorter). This should engage the brakes better. It make take some trial and error, turning the threaded adjusters clockwise and counter-clockwise to get the proper setting for your strength and comfort. Hope this helps.

Trans in a 95 beretta wont move shut off moves then wont move shut off then moves


Your description isn't entirely clear, but it sounds like there may be a problem with the lockout solenoid on the shift handle, or possibly a stretched or seized shift cable. If the handle moves freely, but you are not able to move the car when it appears to be in neutral, the cable probably needs to be replaced. If the car drives for a short while but then loses power and has to be restarted, you may have a faulty torque converter or transmission computer. If the shift handle won't move sometimes, it may be due to a faulty lockout solenoid or brake pedal switch.
