Does the low battery light come on straight away even though it is fully charged? My unit did this and I found the impeller for the pump stuck. Try taking off the filter off the end of the pump get a nail or long screw and spin / free the impeller and try and use the coleman again. If this works I suggest cleaning the unit as per the book with clr etc

    I was having the exact same problem as Aus_Staffy, followed the instructions above and working like a charm now. Already bought a new battery which did not fix the problem, so now have an extra which can't hurt either. Thank you so much for the assistance.

How do you test a Magnetron on g e microwave

If you have the mag out of the unit. You can take an ohm meter and measure between the terminals on the mag. That is the Filiment. It should show continuity. Then measure from either of the two terminals to the outer metal frame of the mag. You should not see any connection. If you do it is shorted to ground and is bad. The unit would probably hum loudly when it ran. The only other way to really test a mag is under load with full hi volts and filiment power going to the mag and watch an amp meter and see if it fires up and draws around 10- 15 amps. I personally have Hi Voltage trays from stripped down units that I can power up a mag on the bench and see if it fires. Another way to check is to see if you have hi voltage. Unplug the mag and run unit for a couple of seconds, then, once unplugged, you can short across the capacitor with a couple of screw drivers and if you get a really Large Hi Voltage snap, the unit is producing hi voltage, so if it is not heating it is probably the mag. If it makes Hi voltage the timer and interlock circuits are working to send power to the transformer and the other Hi Volt components. If ti doesnt heat probably bad mag. If your unit has an inverter you caannot use this test.

Turns over and won't start, replaced fuel filter and just turns over and almost fires

Almost fires? Do you mean it does fire some, that you know the plugs are getting spark? If so, then you probably need to have your fuel pressure tested to see if pump is working properly. Can you hear the pump buzz on briefly when you turn key to on? It should come on for a couple of seconds to pressurize the lines. If you don't hear it, then your pump may be bad, or something not turning pump on. Good luck.

Turn unit on,light stays on for 5 seconds and shuts off,robot doesnt move

If the power supply switch is popping off after a couple of seconds the most likely cause is a failing rectifier. You may want to ship it to a service center to confirm that is the issue and that the switch, which is also the circuit breaker, and the PCB inside are OK. For help finding a service center contact Matronics directly at or 1-888-DOLPHIN.

Just installed big maxx mu75lp. When call for heat is sent, it just sits there. Fan does not run, doesnt try to lite, just get a green led blinking at about once per second. Good electrical connection,...

Make sure you are getting 24 volts back from thermostat and you are getting good connections. If you have 2 wires running to stat, connect them together at unit and see if unit starts. Check for wires unplugged, but I think that a flashing green light means you have 120 volts supply and the stat is not calling for heat

I have a 1999 Goodman GMT070-3B furnace and it seems no heat is coming out of vents. I can see igniter comes on but noticed the blower motor on bottom of unit is not spinning. My question is what would...

does the unit fire? If the unit doesnt fire then the blower most likely wont come on. If it is firing then the board has a preset delay sometimes there are dipswitches on the board you can adjust from 45 sec 60 sec 90 sec 120sec. Check these. You can test power at the blower motor if your getting 120 v then you either have a bad capacitor or a bad motor. You can check the capacitor with a capicitance meter. You can also the fan on at the stat and see if it spins if it doesnt remove blower cover hold in door switch and manually spin it should spin freely if not feel the motor and see if its hot. Let me know what you find. Hope this helps and please leave feedback

1997 F-250 no power to the fuel pump. The fuel pump works. The safety shut off is down but no power in any of the 2 wires to it. changing the fuel pump relay has no improvemnt.

Check the fuse block. Use a test light and don't rely on just looking at fuses. But if the main ignition control unit went bad, it will also cut the power to the fuel pump relay. Autozone will check the main control unit.

My Mazda mx3 starts up idles for a couple seconds then dies.

Before you replace the fuel pump, I would check the cheaiper parts first. Such as fuel filter and injectors.

Problems when starts..

Turn your key on for 10 seconds but do not start the engine. That will give the fuel pump time to built pressure. After the 10 seconds try starting the engine. If it starts right away you may have a weak pump or dirty filter.
