I'm very familiar with this unit. First there are problems with cracked solder joints on the boards. I resoldered mine after about a year. Take the side cover off and remove the board and resolder all the connections. This will probably solve your problem but if it doesn't you need to change the filter in the back and then you need to get the gauge to check the pressure. www.reddyparts.com It should be set to 3.5 psi to work properly.Let me know how you make out.

Check ball is stuck. Also check the specs for your pressure. Some cars won't run if it's one pound under specs.

Power to house went out during area power outage. Everything came back on except the computer? Tries to restart by holding power switch in, unplugged and replugged power cord - no response on monitor. ...


When the power is returned after a power outage it can cause a power surge and damage electronic equipment such as a computer. This is a reason to install a surge protection power board and connect your computer equipment to a surge protection board.
The switch mode power supply may be faulty and replacing it may get your computer operating again.
If you cannot DIY then ask a friend or take it to a computer repair shop.

"97 plymouth voyager cluster lights


Firts you need to check the fuse for your instument light and if it good check the connections to the cluster for a loose connection. The fuse should be in the compartment under the hood. You might also try starting the van and very slightly turn the key backwards to the run position to see if they work then. There has been an issue with ignition switches and this problem before. You might also try turning the key on and waiting a few seconds for the dash lights to go off then start it, there may also be an issue with a circuit board for the dash and this helps re set the PC board instrument panel controller. It's behind the instrument faceplate

Not staying lit


Remove the front panel and tape down the door safety switch so the unit can turn on when door is off. Turn up thermostat to make sure there is a call for heat. The circuit board should indicate a call for heat with either a blinking light or a solid light. Then the exhaust fan should turn on clearing the venting from any fumes. When the fan has ran for a few seconds, the igniter should start glowing orange. After it reaches a predetermined temperature, the gas valve should open with a click. The flame will start at the burner closest to the igniter and travel away from the igniter. There is a small flame rod located in the flame path on the last burner that tells the circuit board it feels the flame. If the flame goes off within a few seconds of starting, you have a dirty flame rod. Clean it with a scotch-brite pad. Once you get the flame to stay on for 90 seconds or so, the room air blower will turn on. If it tries 2 or 3 times to start but does not, the circuit board will record a code and display it with a blinking light. Look on the door panel for a wiring diagram. There will also be a Diagnostic chart that will tell you what the pattern of blinking lights represent.

Good Luck!

Igniter won't glow


Hi,
I am assuming that everything works OK except you have no heat?
When you turn on dryer listen for gas valve to click(this may take a few seconds).If you don't have a click then the gas valve my be bad or it is not getting power.

Dryer has to be running to check for power only experienced persons should perform machine running power tests.
Let me know If I can do anything else to help.

My acer aspire 4920 tries to turn on, the fan starts then power cuts out then it tries to start up again but then turns off completly. Please help i have so much important stuff on there!


there are multiple reasons why your laptop turns on then off after a few seconds of turning it on. It is either your processor is no longer working so it automatically shuts it down, the ram or the on board video. bring the laptop to a laptop service shop for it to be disassembled and have its processor, ram and video card replaced. they will then be able to detect what really is the problem when they test and replace each of them.

Computer Does not work correctly with Radeon 9250 Graphics Card


Hmm? Everything except replacing the motherboard, sometimes it does not get any better, but...go into your BIOS and turn off the Gateway splash screen. It will be an option in maybe the first or second menu choice. Make sure your on board video device is disabled and save your options when exiting. Good luck and let me know how it turns out.

Engine stalls when stepping on gas pedal and will not idle on its own.


Have you checked the ignition timing? Maybe you need to turn the distributor to the left or right if you don't have the timing light gun
