My projector's power light is red, but when I click power it won't turn to green (on)


The likeliest problem here may be a burned out or failed projector bulb. Most projectors will fail to power up at all when if the bulb is out. The HD20 user manual does not specify a red light as an error indication option however, generally amber.
User manual .pdf is located here (takes a bit to download for it's size), Projector Status Indicator instructions are located on page 40.
Here on the product page itself, an email to Optima support may be warranted given the red instead of amber error light.
If you had any messages recently indicating your bulb life was nearing it's end, again, this would be my first guess. Certain models of projectors do have a tendency of blowing through bulbs even before any warning message comes up. I had an experience with a certain brand/model that for the last 3 replacements has given only about 1/4 of the stated bulb life, so unfortunately it does happen.

The water heater does not react to lowering the temperature...water is above 130 degrees... This is a whirlpool energy smart residential water heater that was bought and installed in Mar of this year. It...


Product features show on link below
http://waterheatertimer.org/Whirlpool-Energy-Smart-electric.html

Energy smart manual shows troubleshooting chart on page 14
http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/Whirlpool-energy-smart-electric-manual.pdf

Initially I would guess the temperature sensor is bad.
However indicator light would flash 3 times.
And since both elements have a temperature sensor, it's unlikely that both would go bad at same time.

That suggests the Self-diagnostic Control Box located on top of heater is defective.
Turn off power at the circuit breaker and see if unit resets correctly.

Manual shows 1-877-817-6750 number for Whirlpool parts and warranty.
Your unit is still under warranty, so control box and other parts should be free.

Keep in mind this water heater requires 10 gauge wire and 30 amp breaker.
If you are running smaller wire or smaller breaker, that could affect long term operation of electronics.
I guess this requirement is so voltage drop from element turning ON doesn't starve electronics in control box

On the control panel, the Red and Black wires connect to 240V from circuit breaker.
Wires appear to pull out of socket using needle nose pliers. It will be important to keep wires in same order.
Take photo of your wiring before disconnecting anything.

To order parts, you must give serial number located on label on side of tank.
Serial number will identify your specific heater to person answering phone at Whirlpool.
Installation part should come with instructions, but ask the person at Whirlpool what steps they took during training. Whirlpool rep might have helpful tip they learned during training.

Add a comment and let me know about your transaction with Whirlpool so I can pass it along.

Norelco arcitec -when I turn off red indicator light showing shaving heads illuminates - has not happened before - what does it indicate?


It means that it's time to change the heads. You can purchase replacements at shaveroutlet.com. See link below.

http://shaveroutlet.com/norelco-philips-rq10-arcitec-replacement-heads-p-353.html

Once you replace them, you will need to reset the indicator light. This should be covered in your user manual. If you no longer have your manual, you can view one at the link below

I have a ford transit 02 plate, with no user manual. today a indicator came on displaying the oil sign with a spanner next to it. is this a service light as the normal oil light was ok and didnt light up


Sounds like a service engine soon light. Check owners manual for reset instructions. On our 99 Mercury , you had to push a combination of buttons on the trip computer / fuel economy select buton.

Heater comes on but quickly over heats.


There is no Filter On this Model. Check to make sure there is Dirt in the Flow way of the two towers. if that is not it the back up fuse in the heater is going bad.
