Question about Plumbing

Open Question

I arrived on site to find an iflo mid position actuator had been used to replace a switchmaster actuator , the old switchmaster has 6 wires but the new valve only has 5 , whoever installed it just cut the cable on the switchmaster and joined the iflo like for like leaving the old switchmaster red connected to nothing , i believe the red from the switchmaster is the switch live that brings in the boiler so not having it meant nothing happens , is there a simple solution when swapping these two vaves over when one has 6 wires and the replacement only 5 !

Just replaced the same exact stems... one seated fine, the other spun and wouldn't turn off. I added an extra washer to that one... it pushes the seat in just a bit further.

SOURCE: RTH230B thermostat not working - nothing's happening

The 2nd combination is correct (w/ jumper). Wire nut or tape the blue wire. The snow flake shows it's going into cooling mode after a 5 min delay. If the AC is not coming on then the problem may not be the thermostat. If you don't have 24VAC between the red wire and the blue one the problem is at the furnace or it's supply. If you do, then check for 24VAC between the blue wire and Y on the thermostat(after the 5min delay) - if it's there the thermostat is calling for cooling. To check the heat, switch the thermostat to heat mode and use the W(instead of Y) on the thermostat(after the flame stops flashing).

SOURCE: i have all 3 new shower valves purchased from home

Most Price Phister valve cartridges have a plastic washer or "O" ring at the base of the cartridge, where it screws into the valve body. Replacements should be available at H/Depot, Lowe's/similar.

2002 Trailblazer, 4.2 I6, code P1345, voltage does not change to cam position actuator 12+ volts all the time?


If this DTC sets, there is a problem with the camshaft position actuator solenoid high control circuit shorted to voltage or the solenoid stuck open.
The PCM sends a pulse width modulated 12 volt signal to a (CMP) actuator solenoid in order to control the amount of engine oil flow to a cam phaser passage.
Do you know what a pulse width modulated signal is ?
Diagnostic Aids
Important: Scan tool control of the CMP actuator solenoid is inhibited when DTC P1345 sets.
The following conditions may cause this DTC to set:
• An improperly torqued harmonic balancer
• A mis-built or mis-timed engine
• A loose or missing crank damper bolt
• The camphaser solenoid stuck open
• The camphaser stuck in a position other than 0 degrees
• The camphaser does not return to 0 degrees within 16 seconds

My 1998 gmc jimmy slt has a heating problem. The heater wont turn off. As long as the car is on the heater is on full blast. The fans work and everything knob wise works but the heater is always on.


The air temperature valve electronic actuator positions the temperature door according to the temperature setting of the temperature control on the temperature control knob. For the full COLD temperature setting, the temperature control returns approximately 12 volts to the air temperature valve electric actuator. When the temperature setting is changed to full HOT, the temperature door is moved to the warm position and the output drops to about 0 volts. For a temperature setting in the mid range, the temperature door is positioned according to the voltage supplied through the temperature control switch.

2002 avalanche A/C only comes out from floor and top. How do I fix?


Checked the codes and sure enough there was a code B0263 stored in the HVAC module. Your scan tool has to be able to go into the body systems to see this information. A plain OBD2 scanner just won't do the job. This repair is so common that you can diagnose it by symptom if you have to. The most common symptom of course is lack of control over the vent output position and normally it will be stuck in the defroster only position. If it is not currently stuck in the defroster position but you are changing the actuator anyways. make sure that you set the vent position to defrost before starting this procedure. You will see why later.

The data lines show an actual mode door position and a commanded mode door position. They do not even come close to matching.84744128-dc9e-4089-92eb-40ffcc4626c9.jpg






I laid a fender cover on the dirty floor and set the parking brake pedal. The pedal hits me in the shoulder and prevents me from being able to maneuver around.

Ready to get in there and work.
4989003a-6e9a-4da6-937d-74f1bbd14502.jpg
Start by removing the push pin that holds the driver's floor vent extension in place.
5a51ece8-5d64-4cea-bbe8-dfb6c14ca6fe.jpg
With the push pin released the duct extensions pulls easily from the stationary duct.
f0f52c2d-2b5d-41aa-90c8-79ed527b6a63.jpg
The lower screw for the actuator is just above the duct work and cannot be seen. It has to be felt. 5.5 mm head
7db5140e-9b4b-4c36-86f2-b9d59364233b.jpg
The second screw can be easily seen as it is at the upper edge of the actuator. Note that it also holds the wiring harness in place.
Developed a slightly different twist to this repair procedure. Could not take good enough pictures from under the dash so hopefully I can show you how on the bench and you can transfer that knowledge to the vehicle.
With the two mounting screws removed and the wiring disconnected, use your fingers and thumb as leverage to push the cam/cog from the actuator shaft. The goal is to leave the cam/cog in place on the end of the heater-a/c case and to remove the actuator motor only.
The old assembly on the left and the new one on the right and The old assembly separated.

Taking the new actuator motor and installing it on the old cam/cog. Remember these steps will be done under the dash. Except for removing the new actuator motor from the new cam/cog, that can be done anywhere. I am just doing this on a bench to give you a clearer idea of what has to be done.

29f131f9-8416-4035-9efc-cf0d9c73f870.jpg

The old cam/cog with the new actuator motor installed. Note the positions of the cam/cog in relation to the motor. Assuming that your actuator has failed in the most common position, blowing out of the defroster vents only, you should not have to do anything other than installing the actuator motor. No indexing of the door shafts to the cam/cog or recalibration of the actuator motors. This is a big time saver.

3d82ef8a-dcc0-4438-bc48-57d3710b18b4.jpg

If the vehicle was stuck in defrost but the new actuator was in different position ( I would say centered ). How do you adjust?
Answer: If you are using the old gear/cog and a new actuator, you should only have to hold the original part in place and install the new actuator. It can only be installed in one of two positions. One will be close and the other will be far out of range. Once the new actuator is installed on the original gear/cog that was held in place, continue to hold the assembly in towards the heater-a/c case and rotate it around until the mounting holes line up. Then perform a recalibration and all should be well.

How do you go about replacing the ignition switch on a 1988 Ford F150? It is an automatic, 5.0 L motor, electric fuel injection.


Removal & Installation CAUTION Read the air bag service precautions in Section 6 prior to doing work involving an air bag equipped steering column component. Always wear safety glasses when servicing an air bag vehicle and handling the air bag to avoid possible injury.

  1. Disconnect the battery ground cable.
  2. Remove the steering column shroud and lower the steering column.
  3. Disconnect the switch wiring at the multiple plug.
  4. Remove the two nuts that retain the switch to the steering column.
  5. Lift the switch vertically upward to disengage the actuator rod from the switch and remove the switch.
  6. When installing the ignition switch, both the locking mechanism at the top of the column and the switch itself must be in the LOCK position for correct adjustment. To hold the mechanical parts of the column in the LOCK position, move the shift lever into PARK (with automatic transmissions) or REVERSE (with manual transmissions), turn the key to the LOCK position, and remove the key. New replacement switches, when received, are already pinned in the LOCK position by a metal shipping pin inserted in a locking hole on the side of the switch.
  7. Engage the actuator rod in the switch.
  8. Position the switch on the column and install the retaining nuts, but do not tighten them.
  9. Move the switch up and down along the column to locate the mid-position of rod lash, and then tighten the retaining nuts.
  10. Remove the locking pin, connect the battery cable, and check for proper start in PARK or NEUTRAL.-Also check to make certain that the start circuit cannot be actuated in the DRIVE and REVERSE position.
  11. Raise the steering column into position at instrument panel. Install steering column shroud.
