Question about Electrical Supplies

1 Answer

As an emergency responder during Hurricane Earl I met a woman on St. Croix, American Virgin Islands who has an ACME ADX 600-700 generator for her home. She is looking for a recommendation for a manual or automatic power transfer switch for her residence. I can't find any info on the generator and consequntly for a switch recommendation. Can you help?

That specigic generator is manufactured by Acme-Lombardini. I'd suggest she go with a manual power transfer switch, simply because it's less problematic.

    Actually the switch model will be dependant on the desired output of the generator. I would recommend that a swith by evesco or lombardini would be best. The lombardini web-site list numerous options and provides assistance.

I purchases an elcipse pellet stove in 1990. It still works perfectly. I need to replace the insulation blocks for the side walls and also need a new ash pan. Do you know where i can purchase these items.


Elcipse was manufactured by Warnock Hersey, but was sold to St Croix. So, their parts may be interchangeable with your stove. Try Pellet Stove Parts.com and click on other brands for St Croix.

The "+" is merely a placeholder for the international call prefix (IDD) used in your country.
  • For example, if you live in France (IDD: 00) and need to call a phone located in Germany (Country code: 49), you would call 00 49 ...

My 1995 Mercedes Benz E420 has lost power gradually


Have you check the transmission fluid level? It sounds like it is low. You might not have a dipstick in that unit. I'd add at least 2 quarts and test drive it.

Bose Lifestyle 12 System bad sound


you can buy a new cord from bose or any palce such as radio shack etc where equivalent connections can be made up to suit with no difficulty.

as for opening the bass box, i recommend not doing this unless it is absolutley the last resort.
the sound will never be the same again and you will end up with a really bad repair that looks bad and sounds bad too.

however if you are determined to do this, let me know firts and i'll tell you how to do it correctly and professionally and very simply indeed. but when youve done this will you know what your are looking at as unless you are an electronics guru with loads of time tools and equipment and hours of time to go to radio shack (again) are you really up to serviceing those not serviceable parts on circuit boards ?


by the tone of you question i think you know already its the cords , go and obtain original replacements from bose or after marklet iones from the internet or get them made to suit locally at any half decent electronics shop.

, good luck
