Alarm & Loose Wire

The solution you recommended does not apply to our situation. Already checked and there are no blockages or obstructions. I do see a loose black wire that belongs in a bundle leading to the "wheel cartridge". In this day and age, how does one find a typewriter repair person?

Driverside a/c not cool


This has to do with the airflow router. It is a door that is either electronically or vacuum operated, and directs the airflow to the different ducts. If it's electronic then either the control module has gone out or a wire has come loose. With a vacuum control, it's usually a hole in a vacuum tube or a tube has come loose. It could also be that one of the ducts has come loose or is plugged.

How do I get my Suzuki c50 motorcycle running on both cylinders


Hi, Danie the following reasons are for a bike that won't start I know yours is running but the answer to your problem is one of these just try the ones that apply to your situation and the usual suspects are:
1. Fuel tank empty.
2. Fuel supply valve/petcock turned off.
3. Fouled spark plugs.
4. Engine flooded as a result of overuse of the enricher.
5. Vacuum hose to the fuel supply valve/petcock disconnected, broken, cracked, or pinched.
6. Fuel valve/petcock or filter clogged.
7. Discharged battery, check battery terminals for damage or corrosion, check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter if necessary.
8. Loose or corroded wire connection at the coil, battery or plug between ignition sensor and module.
9. Spark plug cables in bad condition and shorting, cable connections loose, or connected to the wrong cylinders.
10. Ignition timing incorrect due to a faulty ignition coil, ignition module or sensors (MAP, CMP, CKP, O2 and/or BAS).
11. Security alarm needs a reset.

I have a new world dishwaser flashing e4 what is the problem


you can troubleshoot your dishwasher by
  • First check the manual to see if the machine has a specific troubleshooting guide.
  • Note all sounds or other symptoms the dishwasher shows.
  • Look for some of the more common problems. This includes water temperature deviations, poor washing, failed motor, overflows or leaks or door-latch problems, among others. Anything that can't be dealt with through your troubleshooting guide needs the use of a professional. Check for obvious causes, like blockage in any area or extremely dirty situations affecting water flow

  • you can also always troubleshoot your dishwasher by :

    Instructions Things You'll Need:
    • Dishwashing Detergent
    • Scrub Brushes
    • Steel Wool
    • Steel Wool
    • Screwdriver Sets
    1. Make sure the cord is plugged in and that the breaker hasn't tripped.
    2. Be certain that the door is completely closed and latched.
    3. Check that the cycle button is pushed in all the way.
    4. Check the sprayer arm and filter screen at the bottom. Are they obstructed by a loose piece of silverware or a plastic lid?
    5. Unscrew the cap holding the sprayer arm on; pull it and the screen beneath it out. Use a wire to poke obstructions out of the sprayer arm holes. (Don't use a toothpick because it could break off in the hole.) Scrub the screen with a scrub brush and a little bit of dishwasher detergent.
    6. Eliminate the following as sources of noise: low water pressure keeping the dishwasher from filling, dishes rattling against the sprayer arm or other dishes, loose items tumbling around or trapped in the bottom of the unit.
    7. Take apart the front door panel according to the manufacturer's instructions if the detergent dispenser isn't opening. It may be corroded or have a broken timer lever. If this is the case, rub the corrosion off with steel wool or replace the lever according to the owner's manual

    Door goes down then comes back up and light flashes


    Clear any obstruction from between the safety sensors. Loose leaves, trash, and dirt on the lens of the sensor itself are all examples of things that can obstruct the sensor's signal.

    1. Check each sensor for a steady glowing indicator light. If both indicator lights are on, or if one indicator light is flickering, the sensors may be slightly misaligned. To check for misalignment; obstruct the beam of the sensors so that they cannot see each other. When the beam is blocked, the indicator light on one of the two sensors will temporarily go out. This is the receiving sensor. Remove the obstruction and loosen the wing nut on the back of the receiving sensor. Adjust the receiving sensor until the green indicator light goes out, if not already out, then realign until the green light is bright and steady, then retighten the wing nut. This usually takes a couple of attempts before it is back in alignment.

    2. If an indicator light is out on one or both sensors, check for a possible loose or shorted wire. Sensor wires are attached to the white and black terminals on the back or side panel of the overhead motor unit. Check that they are securely connected to each terminal. Also check the wires for any breaks, especially anywhere they are spliced together.

    Alarm = check printer 5100


    Hi,
    This error means that there is something obstructing the printing process. Check inside your printer through the gears that you can see under the lid. There should be something obstructing the gears such as dirt or even some paper caught underneath the rollers that you have to jiggle around to even see. Check very thoroughly..

    Hope this helps
