SOURCE: I have freestanding Series 8 dishwasher. Lately during the filling cycle water hammer is occurring. How can this be resolved

Hi,
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.
Best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repairmen in the US.
the service is completely free and covers almost anything you can think of.(from cars to computers, handyman, and even drones)
click here to download the app (for users in the US for now) and get all the help you need.
Goodluck!

SOURCE: Very weird Radio Tuning Problem

This is a USA model and by default in the USA all FM stations end in an Odd number. This is completely normal. you can try holding preset 1 and 5 down while pressing the reset button on the unit and it may allow you to switch to a Europe style of tuning.

hi sounds like theunit is faulty, you will need to have the unit repaired, or have the amp switched via the ignition this would be the cheapest option.

MichaelBlackDo you know where I can find the remote key combination to do the same with KDC-MP538U? (To transform it to the European system)

Thanks in advance!

I have a car stereo purchased from the US and I can’t pick up all radio stations in Europe/UK, what can I do?
If you have purchased a car stereo from the US you will find that it will not pick up many European radio stations. This is due to the fact that US radio frequency steps are different to here in Europe.
You may be able to set the tuner to European stations by following this procedure.
Press and hold down the SRC button to power down the unit completely.
While the unit is off press button 1 & 5 together, while momentarily pressing the SRC button.
If this does not work try the following proceedure;
Press and hold buttons 1 and 5 together, while momentarily pressing the reset button.
If this does not work then the unit is not designed to pick up European frequency steps.

My Kenwood Radio (New) for my boat doesn't tune properly on FM. For example, it only tunes to 94,1 or 94,3 but not to 94,2 It is just ,1 digit off the frequency on most stations. Tried it on manua


Hi there,

Kenwood receivers are usually tuned for their intended destination country, hence the frequency "stepping" of the tuners may differ between countries.

Was this receiver originally intended for your country's frequency? If yes, then contact Kenwood customer service for further advice.

If not, contact your local Kenwood service agent and ask whether the frequency stepping can be reprogrammed.

Can i get it to start on channel 1 and not channel 9


You should be able to. It sounds like your radio is hooked up in a manner that disconnects it from ALL the power once the ignition is turned off. This causes the radio to return to channel 9 by default program when powered on again.
Try connecting the radio hotwire to the fusebox at the factory am/fm radio fuse junction (be sure the amps for the cb + the am/fm don't exceed the rating for the fuse). This should keep power supplied to the radio even with the engine off, and it should remain tuned to channel one every time you turn it on.

HAVE A KENWOOD AMP MODEL KAC-9102D . iT KEEPS SHUTTING OFF WHEN i TURN THE RADIO LOUD. ANY SUGGESTIONS


either bad ohm load or over heat if the ohs on the speaker wires to the amp are lower than specified use in the manual it will act funny cause it is pusing harder than its meant to and if it gets too hot either bad location or bad amp you can try turning the gain down a little until the amp stays on constantly at high volume

Stop kenwood KDC-mp239 loosing radio settings with ignition off


You have two power leads bringing battery power into the radio. One is switched off when the ignition is off and the other power lead is always on. That second one is the one you may have wired wrong. You need to check that one out to make sure it stays on when the key is turned off. Good luck.
