Does it set properly and then fall behind? If so, it could be that the oscillating circuit (usually made with a quartz crystal and some capacitors) has fallen slightly below its designed frequency of operation. I suppose that if you still have a receipt and it's still returnable to the store that you purchased it from, you could just exchange it for another one. It's something that pretty much only the manufacturer would bother to repair, as it'd be more expensive to do that work than to just get a new one.

Microwave won't work, I was cooking on the stove and the fan came on and then everything went out on the microwave suddenly


There is a thermostat which detects when the temperature from the cooktop is too high, and it makes the hood vent exhaust fan come on to cool it to protect the controller.

That's I always recommend that you use the vent fan whenever you're cooking on the stove top to keep heat, steam, and grease out of the controls and door panels.

Assuming the wall outlet is good, the first thing I would suggest is a hard reset. Unplug the unit for a minute or so. Then plug it back in, set the clock and try again.

If that doesn't work, leave it unplugged for about 5 minutes.

If it's still dead, another thermostat may be blown,or the fuse.

You can find links to helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts here.

I'd recommend that your bookmark this link to your favorites.

At our Web site, we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

Usually the fuse and magnetron thermostat will be accessible for testing behind the controller.

If those are good, then it may be a bad oven cavity thermostat, and checking that will require you to remove the oven from the wall and take off the outer cover.

Behind the controls in many microwaves is a technical sheet, which helps in locating and testing components.

You probably have a bad connection either on the control circuit board (which we repair), the line filter board, or one of the thermostats.

At our Web site, we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

There should be a "mini-manual" (tech sheet) hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting, testing, and locating components.

Quits running and then starts back


I don't know what the trouble is with your watch. I can tell you every watch I ever owned ran 5 minutes behind. No matter when or where I set it nor how often I set it, within 24 hours, it was 5 minutes behind, never 6, never 4, always 5. After years of questions, I just accepted that my wrist watches would always be 5 minutes behind.

I presume the watch is new ... so cleaning is not a realistic problem. Maybe you should return it to the place you purchased it from and see what they have to offer.

Shuts itself off mid cooking cycle -- as if unplugged; then after 5 minutes or so turns itself back on as if it was just plugged in (forgetting all previous settings)


If you just put the fan blade back on, it will almost certainly fall off again.

The best bet is to slightly rough up the contact area of the shaft with sandpaper and use a little super glue to hold the blade assembly on the shaft, and let it set a few minutes before using it.

I always recommend that you use the hood vent exhaust fan when cooking on the stove top to keep heat, steam, and grease out of the controls.

There should be a "mini-manual" (tech sheet) hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting, testing, and locating components.

I only get acquiring satellites on the screen all the time


after you re set your nuvi, and the "acquiring satellites" is showing on screen: place the unit while on, flat, outside - I placed mine on the outside deck with open skies above! leave the unit in this position for no less than 45 minutes. This is the time the unit needs in order to "acquire" the satellites.
After this, my unit worked perfectly well.
Hope this helps.

Port help


You can get the message even if you have the ports open. As long as the patch is downloading just ignore it. it may sit in the same spot for a bit but its still transferring. I've never noticed a difference in speed. It will take quite a while for a new install to patch. I'd leave it for a few hours.

Clock


Hi there, is the phone setup to automatically correlate its time to the your network provider? If it is, maybe the they need to adjust the time on their system:). Turning the auto time setting function off from handset settings menu should solve your problem.
