The exact model number would help. I think your admiral is a lot like a maytag fridge. Look at the installation instructions in this manual: or this manual to compare:

It does seem that the water inlet is at the valve as you suspect.

Good Luck!

ok go to parts store and get a 12v probe tester its cheap! when you get back with it take the claw part of it and grab some metal that has no paint on it somewere around those wires like a bolt or somthing that is part of the cars metal . now go turn the key on and start the car. go back to the black wires and start probing them when you get a light that comes on on that probe you just bought label it postive . there is not a lot of wires here so the next one will be labels ground. now with some help put some one in the car and have them push the break down then start to probe agen on those black wires with the break down one of those wires should light up now this is the break wire should be blue start conecting these with but caps bye these too while you r at the parts store . and feel free to ask them to while you r there about this . between me and them you will better under stand and you will solve this.

It might be the intake air temperature sensor. This sensor usually mounts into either the air cleaner or the plastic or rubber pipe going from the air cleaner to the throttle body.

No but if you can use intake or return valve in Pool/Spa mode for a valve actuator.

Need to replace abs actuator wiring on a toyota 20v black top. Both lugs are broken need to know which wire goes to which pin on the abs actuator

it probably will not matter which wire goes on which terminal as the sensor is a simple pick up of an impulse
however it you check the other sensor actuators on the other wheels , the colors should give you some indication

How do I replace an actuator in the paper feed?

Turn off the main isolation switch to your c/h system. trace the wires back to the wiring centre , check with an appropriate meter that the electrics is isolated , and swap the wires colour for colour. If you remove the 2 screws attaching the actuator to the head you will be perfectly ok to remove it. and water will not come out of the backing plate, no need to isolate the water. Sometimes the spindle on these valves seizes up so when you have the actuator off, just make sure its free by turning back and forward with a pair of grips. if its solid the whole body needs replacing which will require your system to be drained.

How do i change my timer

Please make sure that the wiring is not tampered and taken out. Purchase the same type of timer and connect the wires after you have a sketch diagram with the wire codes so that no terminal wiring mistake is done while changing the timer.
Use the colour codes or use wire codes on the wire so that a wrong wiring is not possible.

P01544 OBD 2 code

P01544 -Throttle Actuation Potentiometer Signal too High*************When selecting a valve actuator the correct type and size can be found utilizing the following selection criteria:
  1. Power source -The common sources of power for automated valves are electricity or fluid power. If electric power is selected, a three-phase supply is usually required for large valves; however, small valves can be operated on a single-phase supply. Usually an electric valve actuator can accommodate any of the common voltages. Sometimes a DC supply is available. This is often an emergency back-up power supply.
    Variations of fluid power are much greater. First there is a variety of fluid media such as compressed air, nitrogen, hydraulic fluid or natural gas. Then, there are the variations in the available pressures of those media. With a variety of cylinder sizes, most of the variations can be accommodated for a particular valve size.
  2. The type of valve -Whenever sizing an actuator for a valve, the type of valve has to be known, so that the correct type of actuator can be selected. There are some valves that need multi-turn input, where as others need quarter-turn. This has a great impact on the type of actuator that is required. When combined with the available power supply, then the size and type of actuator quickly comes into focus.
    Generally multi-turn fluid power actuators are more expensive than multi-turn electric actuators. However, for rising non-rotating stem valves a linear fluid power actuator may be less expensive. A definitive selection cannot be made until the power requirements of the valve are determined. After that decision has been made, then the torque requirement of the valve is the next selection criterion.
  3. Calculating the torque required by the valve -For a quarter-turn valve, the best way of determining the torque required is by obtaining the valve maker's torque data. Most valve makers have measured the torque required to operate their valves over the range of operating line pressures. They make this information available for customers.
    The situation is different for multi-turn valves. These can be subdivided into several groups: the rising rotating, rising non-rotating, and non-rising rotating valves. In each of these cases the measurement of the stem diameter together with the lead and pitch of the valve stem thread is required in order to size the automation for the valve. This information coupled with the size of the valve and the differential pressure across the valve can be used to calculate torque demand.
    The type and size of the actuator can be determined after the power supply, the type of valve, and the torque demand of that valve have been defined.
  4. Sizing the actuator -Once the actuator type has been selected and the torque requirement of the valve has been determined, then the actuator can be sized using one of the actuator manufacturer's sizing programs or tables. A further consideration in sizing the actuator is the required speed of operation of the valve. As speed has a direct relationship to the power required from the actuator, more horsepower would be needed to operate a valve at a faster speed.
    Fluid power actuators can adjust speed of operation using fluid control valves. However, electric motor operators of the three-phase type have a fixed speed of operation. Smaller, quarter-turn actuators utilize DC motors, and may have adjustable speed of operation.
The great advantage of having an automated valve is that it can be remotely controlled. This means that operators can sit in a control room and control a process without having to physically go to the valve and give it an open or close command, the most basic type of control for an automated valve. The ability to remotely control a valve is easily achieved by running a pair of wires out to the actuator from the control room. Applying power across the wires can energize a coil, initiating motion in an electric or fluid power actuator. Positioning a valve in an intermediate position can be done using this type of control. However, feedback would be needed to verify the actuator is at the desired position. A more common method of positioning an actuator is to feed a proportional signal to the actuator such as 4-20 mA, so that the actuator, using a comparator device, can position itself in direct portion to the received signal.
Modulating control
If an actuator is required to control a level, flow or pressure in a system, then it may be required to move frequently. Modulating or positioning control can be achieved using the same 4-20 milliamps signal. However, the signal would change as frequently as the process required. If very high rates of modulation are required then special modulating control valve actuators are needed that can accommodate the frequent starts required for such duty.

How do i install my router i have one care on my computer and it wont let me install my router. How do I bypass this?

disable all firewalls in the computer first(windows and any 3rd party firewall)....then install the router...also disable any software that prevents you from performing any task.... basically for router you need not install any software...all that you need to do is connect the cable coming from the modem to the "wan" port(yellow coloured port) of the router... and connect your computer to any one of the grey coloured(wired) ports of the router... then type in internet explorer and configure your router according to the ISP...the connection type would be dynamic in most of the cases for cable modem/dsl modem....

All you need to do is look at the wiring diagram on the back of the old room stat, you will have the following:

(normally wired with these colours)


Live (sometimes called common) - Red
Neutral - Blue
Switch Live - Yellow
