Hi That means the pump needs to be primed by running water through the wand. Push the water button and open the knob on the right. You will hear the pump change tone when it primes and the light or message will disappear. If you have a restriction in the intake line the message will not go away. There is a flow meter inside the machine that measures water flow. If the flow meter does not spin when the pump is running, the computer thinks that the pump is not primed. Coffee grounds will get into the intake and restrict the flow meter. If you get a restriction in the water intake (below the water tank, on the machine) the pump may run and water comes out, but the flow meter does not create the jet of water to spin the turbine wheel to send impulses to the computer. You get the ventilate message. One thing to remember is when you are working on the water system (have the water tank off) do not fill the bean hopper and visa versa. Keep them covered when working on the other. Cross contamination will damage a machine fast

As soon as I turn my xbox 360 on it freezes within 1-5 seconds. why and how can i fix it.

your xbox could be overheating, leave the xbox alone for an hour an try again, make sure your xbox is in a well veltalated area, inside a cupboard or inside a closed tv unit isn't exactly an ideal place for an xbox as they often experience heating problems, i'd also recommend if you can to have your xbox lying on it's side as there is ventalation on both the top and bottom of the console and somtimes having the console standing up can limit ventalation.

2 red rings < ventalation

I CAN FIX IT! There are links that show you how to repair this issue yourself (but they are not very clear and every thing is very fragile inside the XBOX 360) or you can contact me via reply on here and we can discuss the issue further as I recently repaired my XBOX 360 with the same issues and it works better than when was brand new.

Or google xbox 360 rrod

My 1983 bronco with a 302 is smoking out the dip stick vavles and distributor, also lost horse power and dont want to move very well, it still has oil pressuer and does not over heat, no oil mixture in...

Blow by comes from improper ventalation of the engine,or a broken compression ring or crack in a piston.Or a valve stuck open,or broken valve spring causing the ventalation to come up threw the engine crank case.Check for a broken valve spring,and hope the valve spring has not hit the piston.Rate if you would,and thank you.

How do i clean the laser

This laser is super sensitive. Do not touch it with your finger or anything that could potentially damage it or leave a mark.

1) Canned Air. Get a can with a mini straw and blow it out pretty good. If it's giving you problems, blow out the ventallation ports as well.

2) Disc Cleaner. Best buy makes a disc cleaner that looks like a DVD. This is not the best way to go but it might work. Ask an employee what they recommend using.

3) Q-tip. If you have already opened it; or are past waranty and desperate to get it cleaned, open up the console and with a Q-tip dipped in a very small amount of rubbing alcohol (make sure it's not wet, just damp) SUPER LIGHTLY give the laser one good rub.

Please make sure you're giving it a good means of ventallation and ensure to never put it on carpet.

Good luck and please rate my solution accordingly.

The fan on my dacor stove top won't go up

This is a job for a qualified service Tech. The wiring, switching and/or motor mechanism could be the cause.

is it rebooting when it overheats? check the ventalation and make sure the vents on the sides are clear.
