Just curious I'm just learning about this site. For clarification, do you have to be an expert (certified or something?) in order to provide advice or just have knowledge of a particular product?

Tips on Posting Questions to Fixya

Here's some simple advice to anyone posting questions to Fixya that expects to find a solution. To begin, here's some preliminary basic information that is RECOMMENDED:

1. BRAND NAME - All brand names are NOT sold worldwide and are NOT designed the same. Whether it be appliances, electronics, lawn equipment, vehicles, etc., they all have different features, operating parameters and power requirements. Parts resources can also be different as some manufacturers do not ship internationally.

2. MODEL NUMBER - Again, ALL model numbered appliances, electronics, vehicles, etc., do NOT operate the same and offer different features. Failure symptoms can have different and significant differences between manufacturers. Please take the time to INCLUDE your MODEL NUMBER.

3. COUNTRY of ORIGIN - Although it is NOT currently a requirement by Fixya, it would help greatly if you would include your COUNTRY, since this is a WORLD WIDE service. Goods manufactured in different countries have different power requirements and can cause significant problems if the wrong advice is given.

EXAMPLE: The basic wire color codes in the United States differ from those in Europe. Voltage requirements for most European appliances and electronics is 220VAC, 50HZ. In the United States, the voltage requirements are 110VAC, 60HZ. The only exceptions are electric ranges and dryers in the US that use 220VAC, 60HZ.

4. SYMPTOM ELABORATION - Please include as much information as possible when describing the problem you are experiencing. ONE WORD GENERIC QUESTIONS, WILL USUALLY YIELD MINIMUM ATTENTION FROM THE EXPERTS. If WE have questions about your question, chances are it will go unresolved.

5. COMMUNICATION/FEEDBACK - If an Expert asks for follow-up information or clarification, please respond so your questions can be quickly resolved. If you are not happy with the initial solution, it is not always the fault of the Expert. Some of these solutions are "BEST GUESS" assessments based on the information YOU provided. If you are not happy with the initial solution(s), post feedback rather than leaving adverse ratings. Many of the Experts on this site work for FREE to provide the best solutions to help you save money and avoid the high price of service calls. We work hard for our ratings and spend numerous hours of our free time providing this useful and beneficial service to you. Many of us are willing to correspond back and forth with you in order to come to the desired solution you require. Lack of communication, however, will lead to fewer responses from Experts that will be willing to assist you.

Registered Experts on this website are NOT employed by Fixya. We are all consumers just like you. We have different areas of expertise and we VOLUNTEER our time to help others. The quality and accuracy of your solutions are based on the input we receive. If we are met with vague questions or hostility, you will not receive the "miracle cure" you are looking for. Many of us are mechanics, IT specialists and repairmen that can educate you and help you perform those simple repairs that do not require the assistance of a repairman. Most of the problems consumers encounter are simple and can be fixed easily with a just little guidance.

There are too many questions that are posted under the "GENERIC", or WRONG category that go unresolved because they do not include the basic information that we need to help you. Some Experts try their best to answer some of these questions, but are met with hostile remarks or adverse ratings because they didn't "guess" the correct solution. Please remember, the Experts here are volunteers and can only give advice based on the information YOU submit.

If you have comments or questions, I encourage you to provide feedback.

Come on I am a dummu and I understaxactly what I am saying. As I can see your experts are not experts. How much more easy can I make it who's the expert and how did they become one?

Fixya is a website where volunteers, like me, try to help others. If I believe I can help someone, I may provide what I think is a useful answer to their question.
No one appointed me an expert, and I'm not a 'certified' expert. I've learned things, just as you have, through daily experience.
What I've learned, I want to 'pay forward' to others. If you find my answer helpful, then you can click the link that records that as a useful answer. Over time, I may accumulate points for providing helpful answers to others. All I get is cheering crowds...just the satisfaction that I've assisted someone who needed some help.

Using the hoover steam vac for the 1 st time and it was borrowed from a friend but no manual was provided...just need to now where exactly the water goes in the bottom or the top?

The clean solution with the shampoo mixed in goes into the top tank, and when you **** up the water it goes into the lower tank.

Here's a link to the manual online that will show you precisely how to use this machine. If you have any questions, or need help with something else, please don't hesitate to use the clarification request form here on Fixya.

If you found this helpful, please be so kind as to rate the repair and leave feedback. This is what keeps fixya experts to continue to post free repair advice here on Fixya. Thanks so much, this is greatly appreciated.

My Canon i80 which has been working well for several years now says that the "waste ink" receptacle is almost full and it needs maintinance. Is this something I can do myself? Kate Palmer

I learned that my printer does indeed need maintenance by a professional--and that I might break it if I tried to do it myself (not good news, but it was good advice)
I learned also the number and address for the nearest expert.
Thanks to Waqar.

Whirlpool Electic Dryer GEQ9800PB1 --- Won't start?

Warning! To avoid personal injury or even death, always disconnect your appliance from its power source--that is, unplug it or break the connection at the circuit breaker or fuse box--before you do any troubleshooting or repair work on your appliance. Also, because some components may have sharp edges, use caution while working on your appliance.
Below is a link to common solutions that will help you with parts and diagnostic procedures that are specifically tuned to your manufacturers data plate information.
It provides exploded view imagery, belt routing diagrams, parts imagery and function, parts ordering and shipping information, error code details, just about anything you need to get your appliance up and running again.

Tip: Always provide the complete information provided on the manufacturers product information data tag, located on the unit, and not in the user’s manual. This will help you acquire a more accurate and expeditious response to your complaint.

If this doesn't help, post me back and I will do some more research to help resolve your issue.

If my assistance helped resolve this issue, please show your appreciation by rating how effective my advice was in resolving this issue.
Thank you,
Dave E. (Illeagle)
