Have autozone, or advanced auto check your altenator for proper voltage. You could be getting good amps to charge the system but the regulator in the altenator could be going bad and causing it to spike in charge or not push out enough voltage at all. This is normally a free test. Also, you may need to check the battery terminals for corrosion.

Hi my beko tumble dryer wont heat up i have changed the pc board and the heating element what else could it be thanks

This could be the effect of a number of problems. Here's a list of things to check and details on how to do it.
  • Fuse could be bad -- Check the fuse for a break inside. If it's bad, replace it with an identical fuse.
  • Temperature switch could be bad -- Use VOM to check the switch. Set VOM to RX1, remove leads and touch the probes to the switch's terminals. The reading should be zero or infinity. Turn the switch, and the reading should change from zero to infinity or infinity to zero. If not, the switch is bad.
  • Thermostat could be bad -- Set the VOM to RX1, take a lead off one of the two outside terminals and press the probes to the two outside terminals. There should be a reading of zero. If not, it's bad.
  • Heating coils may be bad -- Set the VOM to RX1 and remove the leads from the coil. Press the probes to the terminals. If the reading is zero, the coil is bad.
  • Timer could be bad -- Disconnect the leads from the motor. Set the VOM to RX100. Clip the probes onto the leads. If the reading is infinity, the timer motor is bad.

While I was driving my 1999 ford contour se, I RPM gage began running at 5,000 and the speedometer jumped to 80 mph while I was in park. I then heard a low buzzing noise coming through my radio. My car...

I would bet the problem is somewhere in the wiring. It sounds to me like you have a short, most likely in your sensor wires for your tachometer and/or speedometer.

You should look under the hood and follow the wires from the tranny if you can. Another trick I've found helpful is to park the car in the garage and turn all the lights off and then try to start it. Look in the engine and see if you can spot any arcing.

This would also explain your battery problems.

I have an lg dryer the cooling light is on and it does not heat

The cooling cycle was interupted some how within the processor. Remove power to dryer by breaker or unplugging for two hours and it will reset itself then repower and you are good to go.

Slow oscillation, clicking in control panel, dimming lights

Hum. 1st I would check make sure power company is sending you the right Voltage.

2nd Make sure did not trip one side of breaker, Reset if needed.

3rd Pulling electrical circuits down could mean Start & or run capacitor is failing or failed. Or worse motor is failing.

Unless you know how to troubleshoot electrical systems might leave to tech Capacitors store voltage/amps & can harm or kill you.

I f I can help more MSG me back. Hope this helped. Please rate. Thank you. Good Luck!

Press and hold the control lock button down until the light goes off. This is a child proof feature that may have come on if you leaned against it to long. After lock light goes off you can use the machine.
