If you know where the wire came loose from you can reattach it. Many times dryer components have terminals and the wires are connected using connectors, otherwise they were soldered on and you will have to get a soldering iron and some solder and heat the terminal up to get the old piece of wire off and then reattach the other wire by soldering it on (note: you may have to extend the wire so it will reach the terminal which you can do by getting female and male wire connectors). There are many useful sites that can show you how to solder wire if you've never done it before. I've found that <> is the best site to learn things like that because many times they will show you a visual.

I have a 1995 mazda millenia S 2.3 L. It drives fine until I get up to certain speed, then the acceration cuts out and the car starts jerking and won't pick up speed from there. I've looked under...

On your year the 02 sensors did more for fuel economy. Of course this was a major part. But it did not affect the performance of the car. they would usually run rich and use more fuel. If the wire is from the 02 sensors the check engine light would be on. If you have the early 95 , OBD1, It is getting harder to find shops that can hook it up to a daignostic computer. Later is the OBD2. Most all shops can hook up. The loss in acceleration is probably the fuel filter. At low end you will get plenty of fuel. but at the higher speeds the filter is clogged and. will not let the fuel flow through like it should. You will have pressure , but not flow.. Other things could be the catalitic converter and air filter.

When I hit the snare drum harder than usual, it is making a different sound. Is that supposed to be?

I believe I have found a good part of the solution to this problem. I also had this problem in the snare. The problem was so severe that, when pulled, the snare support, without giving him any beat, the sound appeared. I took courage and opened the snare.Ao open, I realized that a yellow adhesive used to glue the trigger wire had melted and the other touching the trigger. I think this must have happened at some point prior to my purchase that equipment has been under excessive heat and then drained to such a glue. Simply cut the little wire glue "connected" two triggers, and closed the snare ....... ready: is working perfectly.

Just replaced my digital therm, does the blue wire that was in C for the old therm go into "O", or "B" now? New therm is a Braeburn. Also do I have to reset something at the furnace?

Should go to C terminal. B and O are only used if you have a heat pump system. If you have a voltage tester you should have 24 volts between the wire connected to R and the blue wire (common)

My atwood 6 gal lp water heater starts fine then shuts itself off after about 1 minute. Sounds like a thermostate issue but where is that located on the electric model? Thanks. Ryan

Look to left of burner, below pressure relief valve, behind foam cover. Letters should be THERM on one and ECO on the other. Peel foam back and you'll see a little disc, with 2 male spade connectors. Don't mix up the one marked THERM, with ECO, they are different temperature settings. You might want to remove the thermal cut-out in the plastic tube and connect the wires direct (your basically going to by-pass it) and see if that cures it first. Just disconnect one end from Therm, and other from red wire, and put red wire (female spade) on male terminal at therm. I've seen them cause similar symptoms. If that cures it, buy a new thermal cut-off and install it as soon as you can, as it's a safety item in case of flame-up from burner, it shuts of power to gas valve etc, to eliminate fire.

Dvd player won't read disc

I believe Vizualogic has serious quality problems. I had RT20 installed and it was defective to start with. The headphones did not work on one unit and the other unit made a loud sound when it was turned on. I had the units replaced. The new units had a new problem - Disc Error. The players were not able to read the discs. The installer tried another unit and it also had the same disc error problem. Interestingly, the word disc was spelled as DSIC - can you believe the quality control on Vizualogic prodict?

The installer then found that a wire had come loose in one of the units. He applied some tape to hold the wire in place. The unit seemed to transmit sound again. Well, a broken connection, disc error in multiple units and incorrect spelling was enough to turn me off. I am now trying to get some other brand installed.

Lyon by Washburn guitar has severe feedback until we short it out buy running a wire from the plug in port to the chrome bracket that the strings sit on, I believe that there is a ground wire off as there...

It sounds like the grounding/earth wire is off the output socket as you already seem to believe yourself. Depending on the model either take off the back control cover panel or the scratchplate/pickguard and look for a loose wire running from the back of one of the pot cases and connect this back onto the screen connection of the jack socket.

Ac not turning on

In changing the filter you may have bumped the thermostat wires. Look on the circuit board and see if the wires to the outdoor unit came loose. The terminals are "Y" and "C" and the wires will probably be yellow and either blue, black or brown.

Believe relay is not connected or no good bike will not start

Without a source there are too many options for a single loose wire...trace the source and hit us back...always check the battery first when it comes to not starting, it dosent hurt to have a jump box to fire it up

Bosch Convection oven Coil

I assume that you mean the circo therm element? If you do. Have you made sure that the wires that were connected are back on the same connections?
I believe, I'm doing this from memory, you should have two red/white wires they attach to one side of the element and the other wire to the other side connection.
Hope this helps
