Overload has nothing to do with the batteries being old or new...it has to do with with how much watts you are sending through the unit...if the overload protection fault is on, it is because it is sensing that if the power were to go out the UPS would not hold up the load at all. I do not recommend to load the ups more than half of the load. visit a batteriesplus store near you and they can help you with this in more detail. www.batteriesplus.com

I have a 4 year old Bosch Ecologixx 7 self cleaning condenser dryer, WTW86561GB/02. The problem is after 10 minutes the machine just switches off, and the display panel goes dark


sounds like the thermal safety overload is cutting the power due to overheating hence why it just turns back on after a certain time, when the safety overload reaches a certain temperature it will cut the power to the machine or in some cases just the heating elements, once it cools down it resets and power is restored and by using the warm setting it obviously isn't as hot so its not overheating, its highly likely it is all blocked up internally with lint (i know it says self cleaning but they never work for more than a few years before requiring a proper clean and service)

Can you find a model number Donald? It could be just a start relay, overload and run capacitor. A defective fan motor can also cause those parts to go bad. Not sure about your 20 year old Refrigerator but from my view I believe they will outlast today's refrigerators. Just depends on what you can tell me more about the symptoms and results. Is the compressor hot? Sea Breeze

When i boot up, my Compaq CQ20 displays the message that the battery has low storage capacity. Battery time is now down to 15 to 20 minutes at full charge.


If you laptop is more than two years old then it is possible that the battery is faulty as many of the compaq laptops have poor back up battery orr quality retained.
Check the adapter on the PC , check if the adapter charges the battery to full capcity , now if this charge wont lat more than 20 minutes , you might need a new one.
Discharge the battery fully and charge few times as the last resort.

The car is not holdong a charge. I replaced the Battery about a year ago. Today I replaced the alternator. I used jumper cables it ran for about 20 minutes and then died again. All the wires look good. Any...


FIRST, YOU MAKE SURE THE BATTERY IS FULLY CHARGED.. A GOOD BATTERY WILL GO FOR 12 HOURS EVEN IF THE ALTERNATOR IS NOT WORKING.. SECOND YOU TURN THE CAR ON.. ONCE THE CAR IS ON. YOU DISCONECT THE BATTERY,, IF THE ALTERNATOR IS GOOD , THE CAR SHOULD REMAIN ON WITHOUT A BATTERY.. IF IT SHUTS DOWN , YOU HAVE A BAD ALTERNATOR OR THE WIRING IS WRONG ONE OF THE TWO.. SHORTS ON YOUR WIRING CAN CAUSE THE BATTERY TO LOOSE POWER.. BUT NOT THAT FAST. BECAUSE IF THE SHORT WAS TO SERIOUS.. YOUR WIRING WOULD BE BURNED.. COMPLETELY..
IF THE ALTERNATOR IS OKAY,, REPLACE YOUR BATTERY,, MOST OF THE TIME BATTERIES GO BAD EASY WITH ANY LITTLE PROBLEM THE CELLS BURNOUT AND THEY DONT HOLD A CHARGE EVEN IF FULLY CHARGED THEY WILL LOOSE POWER IMMEDIATELY .. I THINK THAT IS YOUR PROBLEM.. SINCE IT ONLY LASTED LIKE 20 MINUTES.

It's possibly the circuit breaker rather than the dryer itself. Usually when it trips, it is overloaded or shorted. Overload can be a result of a loose connection or a bad heating element,when you remove the old breaker, see if it has some noticeable burn/corrosion marks where the wire is screwed down, I think replacing the breaker will fix the problem. Hope this helped Tim

Don't worry just replace the battery of the laptop and your problem will be fixed.
It is because your laptop's battery has become old.

We had a power outage today and 2200 (two of them)


The autonomy of the ups depend on the capacity and the number of the batteries installed. Also on the load the ups is carrying. If you have the user manual of the ups you may see this detail.

I have a Husqvarna Viking quilt 870 sewing


The overload message is usuall due to a bind in the mechanical function of the machine. When the motor has an extra "load" caused by something like a tight belt or dry bearing, it "overloads" the motor and the error message is displayed. It is doubtful your problem is computer related. Either way a trip to your service tech is required. If you continue to sew with it, you do run the risk of possible damage to some other parts of your machine. The computer portion of your Husqvarna is guaranteed for 5 years and the mechanical parts carry a 20 or 25 year guarantee depending on when you purchased your machine. A copy of your bill of sale from a Husqvarna Viking dealer or a stamped warranty card is the proof of purchase needed to obtain warranty replacement of parts. Labor is only guaranteed for 1 year.

Kenmore Dryer works for about 20 MINUTES, not seconds


SD, doesn't sound like the same problem. Yours sounds more the like motor kicking out on overload and when it cools down you are able to start it again. The thermal fuse and high limit TCO are non resettable so you can rule them out. You are going to have to check some things out. Make sure the rollers and pulley are not binding. The blower wheel is not binding. These things will cause a drag on the drum and put a heavy load on the motor. Catriver...post back
