Icemaker 106 626133 in 1987 Whirlpool ED22MMXRW sid-by-side

Happy to report that I now have a working icemaker. I had to replace the control module--just replacing the gear was not sufficient. The wiring was slightly different for the new module because it had a side connector instead of one coming out of the lower left corner, but I was able to use front metal plate plus its attachments (motors and switches) of the new to replace the similar parts on the old.

Please refer to the User Manual for the HP Mini Netbook, located here:

Specifically, take a look at page 25, "Connecting to a wireless network". At the bottom of this page, if you are seeing the icon listed as Wireless (disconnected), this means the wireless switch on your Mini is turned off. To turn it back on, find the small slider button on the front of your Mini with the wireless antenna icon next to it, and slide it. This should activate your wireless card, and if you have a wireless network in range it should identify it shortly after.

If your wireless card is already on, and it cannot find your wireless network signal, you can try either (1) restarting your router, or (2) visit the HP Support page for the Mini 1115NR, select your version of Windows installed on the Mini, then download and install the latest wireless networking drivers.

If you have not already done so, I would check at the fuse or circuit breaker panel to see if you have blown a fuse or tripped a breaker.

My wireless capability switch is turned off on my acer aspire 5532 where is the button to turn it on?

wireless capability on my acer laptop is a switch that you toggle on the front of the computer.

I suspect that you just need to slide the switch over and release to turn the light on for WiFi and also to turn the WiFi capability on.

Where is the wireless switch on this dam thing

Some laptops don't have a mechanical switch for wifi. But just try to look around the back portion or the front or sides of your laptop. Wifi switches are slide type. You just slide it to toggle on and off.

However, newer laptops have no mechanical switches. To turn your wifi on/off, just hold down the FN key and press the Function Key (F1 to F12) where you can see the wifi logo like this: )))

In my unit, it is FN+F10

Try it out.

How do i turn on the wireless switch?

Most of the time it's a sliding switch on the side toward the monitor or the front of the laptop. It's also usually easy to miss.

88 ford ranger ignition cylinder frozen i need it 2 turn 2 remove

Take the plastic cover from around the steering column. There's a small hole under the lock Inside the hole is a small button you need to push in on which should release the lock cylinder. The key has to be in the switch. If that doesn't work, theres a thin metal rod that goes into the electrical of swirch. You need to remove it than try to turn the key. Than push in on the little button while trying to remove the lock .

Hyundai grandeur 99 model-can't find relay/module for rear brakes

WHICH GLOBES (BULBS)? I presume Brake Lights? The circuit is a DIRECT CONNECTION at the brake SWITCH (brake pedal arm). If all your fuses are good, then I'd begin to suspect the brake lamp switch is defective.

Wireless not working

I assume it's a laptop/notebook.
If so then there is a switch near the light that is on when the adapter is on. It will be a very small slide switch, on the front or side edge. Simply find it and slide to on. Or if it's already on then try pressing the fn key and f8 together, as this sometimes is a second wireless switch.
I hope this helps
