There should be a reset button near the rear of it.when you turn it on,theres a fire eye that must see the flame within a few seconds,if it doesnt see the flame, it will kick the reset and kill the power so that youre not filling the burner with raw fuel and potentially making a nice little bomb. if you reset it and it continues to kick out, youll need to have it serviced.

What's your problem? goodman furnace lights, burns 10 secs goes out

Hello,sounds like you have a dirty flame sensor. This is a metal rod on the oppositenside of the hot surface ignitor. turn off power to the furnace and remove the flame sensor, then use steel wool and clean the flame sensor and reinstall. Next turn back power to Furnace.

My tv won't turn on... Its pretty new, just bought it in January. No lights, no nothing. Yes it was plugged in, yes I have electricity running through my outlets, yes I've tried it in other outlets, yes my...

Sounds like the power supply is bad. If you purchased the unit new in January 2011, contact Phillips for warranty repair. Call 1-866-771-4018 between 8 am and 11 pm Monday through Saturday or 9 am - 6 pm Sunday. Have your model number, purchase date and serial number ready. New units have a 1 year warranty.

If this was a refurbished unit, the warranty is probably up (only 90 days). Replacement power supplies may be available on line. You will need to open the TV to get the current part number to get a matching one. I see a few listed at . This site specializes in minimally used parts (from TVs damaged during shipping).

I wish that I had better news.

Powers on, no heat

I have this model heater and it quit working as well. I took it apart to find that the plastic bosses that the safety switch mounts/screws to melted and the switch fell into the bottom of the heater rendering the heater useless.
FYI, The safety switch removes power from the heater when the heater is laying on it's front or back incase it gets knocked over while it is on.
This is a serious defect. These heaters should be recalled.
