Question about Sport & Outdoor - Others

1 Answer

Had an electrical short on my boat, for some reason the in-line fuse for the Navman 5500 did not trip as a result of this short. The Navman is not working at this time and am looking to see if it can be repaired. Can you please provide me with a location and phone number so I can pursue this. I really like this piece of equipment and would like to get it in working order.

I don't think that the electronic components of this device can be repaired after the elecrical shortening. You can take it to the service center or the store from where you purchased it.

What could result if your car has an electrical short?


This is a very wide question. Anything bad from blowing a fuse to burnt wiring can result from a short. Just to cover the basics. What is a short?
An electrical circuit consists of a power supply (battery, alternator), a load (electric motor, lamp, resistor etc) a switch and finally a conductor - the wires and a fuse.
The electricity must flow through the whole circuit in order for it to work. A short circuit, commonly called a short, means a path is present for some reason or other that causes the electricity to bypass some parts of the designed circuit.
Say for example you have a front end accident, and the headlamp is broken is such a way that the bulb leads are shorted to earth. There is now a short between the headlamp wires and earth, and the headlamp fuse will burn out, also known as "blow".
If, however, an accident causes a short between the fuse box and the power supply, the wires themselves now will act as a fuse, and they will burn out., causing lots of smoke and toxic fumes.
Car electrics are designed to be safe from electric fires and short circuits by using fuses, circuit breakers and relays, but funny things can happen. I hope this helps.

Navman Tracker 5500


I am having same trouble. I contacted Navman NSW and went through all the settings without result. It was suggested that the problem could be the external antenna, if not a fault in the machine. I have seen an after market antenna for about $19 so I might try that. It does seem as though the antenna is not talking to the Tracker.

Dryer won't heat maytag neptune mde 5500 ayw


Hi


If the dryer is not drying the clothes then you would need to check for the following things-

Electric Dryer---

1. Inspect the fuses and circuit breakers they may have burned out or tripped. Usually, dryer will still tumble but not create heat if a fuse or a circuit breaker is not working.

2. Check for the amp reading at 240 V, it should have reading of 24, 21 and 3 amp (approx.) for 2 lines and neutral respectively.

3. Heating element may have turned or the connection to the element might be loose. Sometimes a shorted circuit element will keep on blowing the fuse or circuit breaker.

4. Motor wiring shorting to ground.



Hope this helps...

2year old ge dryer trips breaker when it's turned on, but sometimes will run a complete cycle before it shuts off.


HELLO THERE
Electric dryers require the use of a 220 volt line. The dryer heating elements run off of 220 volts. An excessive draw of electricity, or a short in the wiring can blow a fuse or trip a breaker. This happens to protect sensitive components from damage, and to help prevent fires. Every other dryer component operates off of 110 volts, the timer, motor, etc. Usually when a fuse blows or a circuit trips, it's because there's to much draw on the power line.
It is very possible for one part of your dryer to work fine, and yet another to have a problem, such as a short circuit. A short circuit may be caused by the heating element, internal wiring, or the main power cord.
To troubleshoot this problem, unplug the dryer and check to see if the circuit breaker or fuse remains on when the dryer is unplugged. If they stay on, it's more than likely the problem is somewhere in the dryer.
If your fuse blows, or the circuit breaker trips when the dryer is unplugged, it's likely the problem is with the circuit breaker, fuse box, or house wiring; contact a professional electrician.

OK I hope this is very helpful for you
Best regards Michael

Navman 5500 gps backlight dim but set to max


Its water ingress causing a short in the high voltage wiring PCB.

Open the unit with a 1.5mm allen key, unscrew the power/data cable sockets with a spanner and GPS antenna inlet with an 8mm socket (NA to i models) .

Where water has arced there will be burning black on the green PCB evident, cut the PCB wire and remove the section around the burn.
solder a new wire to bypass the short.
Dry the unit and seal with silicone to prevent re occurrence.

Its a 2 hour repair requiring a high DIY soldering standard but off set it against the time it will take to reload you waypoints in a new plotter , its well worth the trouble.
