How to clean throttle body on 07 envoy?

To clean the throttle body you will need a tooth brush and some throttle body cleaner spray.Remove intake hose on throttle body, you may have to also remove the air cleaner but most times you can just move it aside.
This being drive by wire you will not be able to open the throttle by stepping on the gas pedal. you will need to use your finger to push it open,Push throttle plate open and spray plate and body, then use toth brush to clean plate and body. spray to clean out and use brush to loosen carbon. place a rag under the throttle to caught cleaner run out, the rest will burn in engine.
After you clean start truck, if truck is hard to start then step on pedal to start, this will clear out the cleaner. try not to over do it on the spraying.When cleaning you want to clean area that plate sits against. For example the closed plate, the area around the plate is the area that air is sucked through and with carbon build up there it restricts air flow at idle . thats the area to clean, the plate edge and body. hope this is helpful good day

Like many other people I have a vertical line down the copy, using the document feeder, not the plate glass. on my HP officejet J5780 3 in one. Your advice is to clean the small glass plate. I look...

I dont have a picture at the moment but if you lift the document feeder up to expose the large plate glass, the small plate glass is normally situated at the extreme left hand side of the large plate glass.

Cleaning throttle plate and MAF sonsor

TO clean the throtle plate use a small tooth brush and some throtle body cleaner. remove the intake hose, spray the throtlebody and then open the throtle plate and spray plate , use brush to clean body and plate then spray clean try not to spray to much into engine , after its clean then start the engine you may have to hold gas pedal down to start as it going to be a little load up with fuel from the cleaner, some time sit will start up on its on and run a little rough for a few seconds and clear up. As far as the mass sensor this needs to be cleaned with mass air flow cleaner, this is a spray like the throtle spray but is made for that sensor and drys fast, spray the two sensors inside but dont touch them or move them spray as close to them as you can to clean them, good luck.

Unit powers up the two small lights won't come-on. Also air coming out stinks with A clean filter ?

What you refer to as a "filter" is actually the "plate," I assume. (4" square white object with mesh center panel?) The two small lights are simply power indicators, and may be burned out so could be inaccurate.
UNPLUG the machine.
1) If your model has a switch on the right that says "Manual" and "Auto," set it on "Manual."
2) Remove the back screen and remove the plate. Inspect it carefully for any kind of minute cracks, burned spots, discoloration, loose mucilage, broken screen strands, lint, dirt, etc. Even the smallest defect can cause the plate to short out, creating a burned, electric smell. If you detect something, or if it's spitting, sparking, or sizzling more loudly than normal, you need a new plate. Order through Vollara (new name of EcoQuest) at 800-989-2299.
3) Even though that plate appears clean, with no defects, it may be corrupted by whatever cleaning product was used. ONLY PLAIN AMMONIA and water, 1-to-1 ratio, should be used.
a) Soak the plate for 5 minutes or so.
b) Use a toothbrush or soft veggie brush and gently clean the plate You can also clean the metal contacts with a cotton-tipped swab and alcohol.
c) Blow-dry or air-dry the plate. DO NOT use any kind of cloth or paper wiper.
d) Avoid touching the screen part with fingers.
e) Reinsert plate, making sure it goes in on the tracks, both top and bottom, and isn't pushed too far. Both metal pressure contacts should press firmly on the screen on each side of the plate. (Tweak them to achieve firm contact, if necessary.) Sometimes, if the plate was cleaned with the wrong solution, it is damaged and cannot be cleaned enough by using ammonia. Order a new plate, using the above customer service number.

Recently cleaned unit. now i am getting arcing on

The arcing sound comes from a loose fit. You may have to bend the contact bar so it fits tightly against the unit.

Lexmark x4270 black streaks on scanned images.

There is something on your scanner glass; oftentimes, this happens when you use white-out on a document and then scan it. You will have to open the cover to access the scan plate-it should look something like a simple piece of glass maybe an inch wide. Use rubbing alcohol or glass cleaner to clean the glass plate-DO NOT spray on the plate, spray LIGHTLY on the cloth or tissue-use something soft that will not scratch the glass-and use that to clean the glass plate. You may have to do this several times to remove the foreign matter from the plate, testing between cleanings until you get a scan that is clean.

Ecoquest fresh air repair

Regardless of unit the purifier plates may need replacement. How are the plates cleaned? Could it be that there is a residue from the cleaning agent present after cleaning? With new plates there is a little oil on the plates to prevent oxidation when in storage or transit. A little rubbing alcohol would do the trick.
Make sure the plates are dry before putting them back into the unit.

If the plates are seated right and clean you should see a faint purple glow on the plates when the unit is on purify.

Let me know if that's the case.

Xl15 sparking

Clean the contacts that touch the plates with Qtips and 70% or higher isopropyl alcohol and replace the plates. Sparking on the plates usually is a sign of a crack in the plate. The electricity is passing through the plate, creating an arc. The crack may be invisible to the naked eye.
