Fingerprint scanner is blazing hot

A couple of days ago I noticed that the fingerprint scanner was extremely hot. You cannot touch it without burning yourself. I would like to know how to just disconnect it or disable it somehow. I hardly use it anyway. My laptop is only 1 1/2 years old.

Hi.

The camera is obviously faulty and needs to be returned to the manufacturer or the store for replacement or repair. The warranty will cover any cost so will be done free of charge.

You have every right to be angry as it is brand new.


Regards.

Ice maker hasn't worked in years. A couple of days ago food below the ice maker was thawed. Today I felt that the ice maker was hot to the touch. Is there anyway to disengage the power to the ice make


Yes you will need to take the screws that mount the Ice maker to the side of the freezer and unplug the cable plug that is hidden behind the back of ice maker. The only time that element is needed to become hot is the moments before the ice maker drops ice. Thanks, Sea Breeze

Amp Was Extremely Hot and I Have Now Lost All Sound


Where was the smell coming from? The amp or the sub?

Do you have an ohmmeter to check to see if the sub's voice coils are still intact? Can you try driving the subs with another source to verify they are ok? We need to eliminate the variables here.

If the subs are okay then it's obvious that the problem is in the amp. I'm not sure if there are any protection devices internal to the amp, but I am sure if you remove the cover from the amp and if it was amp that was producing the burnt smell, you'll have no trouble visually identifying where the problem is in the amp. Most likely you'll find a part that is discolored or black & burned.

Usually a smell like this from a solid state device indicates a component has been overheated and if run long enough in this condition will fail.

If the mullion heater around the doors is hot to the touch the inside temperatures are not being maintained. They should be warm but not hot. This usually indicates a problem in the internal temperatures. Check the back wall of the freezer section for frost buildup. Your defrost system may not be working and it had not gotten to the point of complete failure as far as you noticing the temperature differences yet.
