If you do not have experience in repairing these mics, you should probably have a pro audio technician do the work. The problem is an open circuit in microphone's internal wiring; either the mic cartridge is dead, or one or more of the fine wires connecting it to the microphone output connector are disconnected. Sometimes the fault is caused by a bad solder connection, or a faulty switch. As I mentioned, unless you have experience with these items, you can permanently damage a potentially salvageable mic. A goos tech should be able to identify the problem in a few minutes, and if the mic is repairable, it should be a cheap fix. Worst case scenario, a dead cartridge replacement may cost half the price of a new mic. But then, it's essentially a new mic.

My KA stand mixer fell over on its side during transportation - it was only on its side about 15 min. I see no oil leaks but it will not start. It is a KA Professional 5 Plus, approx 2 1/2 yr old


I don't think that model will ever have an oil leak, there is far less lubrication in the gears compared to the earlier models. You are going to have to remove the top cover & check all the connections for continuity. One of them may have come unplugged or be a bit loose. Remove the screw at the back holding the trim band on and then the 4 screws you can then see. Lift the cover off & check all the connections you can see. I vaguely remember there being a couple of wires plugged together towards the back that I once found to be the cause of no go.

Horn does not work anymore


three suspects 1) horn, 2) horn relay, 3) horn switch.

eliminate the first suspect by disconnecting the horn from its wires and jumping it right to the battery.
horn is usually found by looking around in front of and next to the radiator or below a head light. if it honks it is good, if not replace it. if it honks with jumper then go buy a new horn relay at a parts store. locate the old one by finding the fuse panels as described in your owners manual, the relays are in there too. unplug the old one and plug in the new one. if it works you win, if not you are looking at replacing the horn switch which is inside the steering wheel cosmetic cover. on pre-airbag cars this is usually not hard to get at, just a bitc* to find a new one for a car that old.

note some 90s GM products had a horn with a built in relay. this means you have to replace it with the exact same thing, not an off the shelf parts store horn. if the horn has 3 wires in connector it is that type.

Just quit. Worked fine one day. Next day went to turn it on and nothing happened. Fan is little over a year old.


Control switch, circuit breaker, or loose wire are main suspect.
Rarely does a motor just stop working.

Check circuit breaker.
Open control switch and test for power and check for loose connections.
Install ordinary on-off switch and see if function resumes.
Check wire connections at fan.

I have installed a 2-way dimmer switch in my dining room. I was able to install it and it works great. However, on the other side of the wall where I installed the switch, I have another single way...


If I understand correctly new dimmer is in different box than outdoor switch.
And outdoor switch controls different light than new dimmer.
Both new dimmer and outdoor light are on same circuit breaker, and that breaker is not tripped.

Outdoor problem could be related if loose wire inside dimmer box also feeds over to outdoor switch. More below.
Here's how I would troubleshoot problem.
1) Check outdoor bulb(s). This step can be big time saver.

2) Pull outdoor switch out of box a bit so you can see and test wires.

3) If wires are pushed into quick connects located on back of switch, these connects get loose. Moving switch usually causes loose wire to connect again, so turn switch ON-OFF and see if outdoor lights work. Sometimes switch works fine after quick connects reconnect. If quick connects are bad, use tiny screwdriver in slot next to connect-hole to release wire. And then connect wire to screw terminals on switch. Or replace switch.

4) Turn switch to OFF, use tester and test both screws on switch to bare ground wire. Tester should light up on one screw. If tester does not light up, then switch is not getting power, and that wire has to be tracked back to see where short is.

a) Look if one of the black switch wires is connected to other switch, or connected to other black wires inside same box. This wire might have come loose.
b) Look at white wire inside same box and make sure they are twisted together and covered with wire nut.

c) Now here is where dimmer could be related ... if white wires are joined together in dimmer box, they could have come loose if they were not properly twisted together and covered with wire nut.

5) Turn switch to ON and test again. Tester should light up on both screws. If switch does not light up on both screws, then switch is bad. Replace switch.
