First, with the switch OFF, take the allen wrench that should be with it and stick it into the bottom and center of the disposal. Turn it some left and right to free up anything that might be causing it to seize. Then make sure the motor is reset and try again. If that fails to fix it then it is time for a new one.

Why does it pop the reset button?


The button is a current overload protection for the motor. There is a variety of causes. Defective motor windings, carbonized burnt pressure switch contacts, loose connection (e.g. cord to plug, switch terminals, motor terminals), wrong voltage supply to the motor, worn motor bearings, drive belt too tight, or defective driven machine.
I would run the motor with no load, remove the belt or coupling to the compressor pump, and read the amperes and compare to the motor nameplate rating, let it idle a few minutes and listen for bearing noise. By reading motor amperes or current while the compressor is still connected to the motor, it can be determined if the reset button/overload protector is weak. Check every electrical connection for discoloration or overheating and repair if any are found. Check the contacts of the pressure switch. If nothing wrong is found and the motor is just overdrawing current or amperes, then it is time to replace the motor, probably due to a weak or defective motor internal winding.

HP 1315 printer won't turn on


I have an HP printer too, but it's HP 2050. When i plug it in it usually makes a noise and then the power button blinks. To turn it on requires me to hold the power button down for a few seconds until the power button light stays on. If you haven't tried yet, try pushing down and hold and see if it turns on. Hope this helps :)

Peerless Boiler - Turned off boiler to replace Circulator for the hot water. Turned furnace back on. Did not ignite. Tried to hit the reset button for 30 seconds and nothing happened. Furnace will


Did you bleed the air out of the pump. The boiler has a flow switch that has to make before it will let the boiler lite. Make sure you have all of the air out of the system and are pumping or flowing water and not air...Also check to see if you didn't happen to of tripped the limit it has a manual reset.

Car still wont start tried everything what else could i try any sugggestions?


Hi, Check the solenoid that is attached to the starter motor. That is the most likely cause. Check connections and/or replace solenoid.
There are lights that do come on but shut off after a few seconds when the care is running. There is no reset button that I know of. Have your mechanic check the starter motor as well. Good luck.

Try a hard restart,

To reset the iPod Touch, press and hold down the Sleep/Wake button and the Home button simultaneously at the same time for at least ten seconds, then the LCD display will clear and the Apple logo appears on the black background. When Apple logo appears, reset is done.

Also be sure to leave it plugged in to charge for a few hours - you may have completely drained the battery.

Unplug the coffee pot and push in the "1-4" and "TSB" buttons at the same time, hold the buttons in for a few seconds. This will reset the pot and you should be able to brew like normal after that.
