Sump Pump Failure Warning Device A simple inexpensive homemade device to detect...


Sump Pump Failure Warning Device

A simple inexpensive homemade device to detect a sump pump failure in your home can be made for under $15.

You will use this device in your sump pump hole or any other place in the home or business where you want to detect an abnormal level or rise of water that may cause damage due to mechanical failure.

You can make this device with the purchase of a common smoke detector which can be purchased from any home repair retail outlet for between eight to $13, and a length of speaker wire (approximately 10’) for about two dollars. Total cost $10-$15.

The smoke detector will be used to detect the presence of water at a predetermined height using the length of speaker wire as a switch to activate the smoke detector.

To make the water level sensor device do the following:

Remove the cover from the smoke detector.

Strip and separate both wires from each end of the speaker wire. Expose ¼ - ½ inch wire at each end and split the wires to separate them from one another as needed to connect to the detector. (The end of wire leads to detect water level need only about one inch of separation.)

Next, find on the smoke detector where the circuit is made when you push the button on the cover to test the smoke detector device. You will need to attach one lead end to each side of this circuit with the speaker wire leads. No soldering is necessary. Simply just slide one lead under a piece of metal which can be pried up slightly and let the pinching action be used to hold it in place. Place the second lead similarly on the other side of the circuit. Route the speaker wire to the outside of the case in a way to not interfere with the cover. Put a battery in and replace the cover to the smoke detector.

Check that your connections on the smoke detector work by touching the two leads together on the end of the speaker wire. The alarm should go off the same as if you have pushed the test button circuit.

Now you can place the smoke detector in a suitable location next to the sump and also place the exposed wire leads of the speaker wire down into the sump hole at the level you want to detect a “high water level”. Make sure the wire leads do not touch anything that will cause them to short across one another and sound the alarm prematurely.

The level at which the leads should be set, should be a couple inches higher than the level at which the sump pump kicks on to pump the water out. If the pump fails and the water level rises to the wire leads, the smoke alarm will go off, alerting you to the situation.

Caused speakers to smoke:(


If it's the speaker cabinet itself that';s smoking, you have most likely burnt some components in the passive crossover. Pull it out and you may see melted parts or scorching on the circuit board. Peavy does repairs on it's own products pretty reasonably if there's no local tech. Call Peavey Customer Srervice at 877-732-8391.

Gateway- built-in laptop Speakers not working


Heat dissipation from the unit in the same area of the speaker assembly, especially since you stated that the RIGHT speaker was smoked. Similar problems occur with this design flaw with any manufacturer as HP has the same problem with some of their models.

Your heat exhaust is killing the speaker, and I would also bet that your chipset is AMD and not Intel, the latter having solved it's heat dissipationn problems.

A more aggressive heat dissipation solution on the motherboard or redirection of the exhaust past fewer heat sensitive components would be a design goal.

Lab l4 bass amp smoked my speakers


Hi,
If your description is to be taken literally, and smoke did indeed come out of the speakers, your output transistors have shorted out, and put the full power supply voltage and current through your speakers.
The amp and the speakers will need to be serviced. The speakers will need new voice coils at the least.

Smoke coming out of subs


If smoke has come out of the subwoofer, the speaker itself, that means the voice coils have been heated excessively and they are damaged or in this case, I'd say completely blown. Voice coils blow because they've been driven too hard, too much power, too much distortion for too long.

If you can get access to the front of the subwoofer speakers, gently put even pressure with your fingers near the middle of the cone, just around the edge of the centre dust cap and push gently and slightly inwards. If you hear or feel a "scratchy" type sound or feel, or if they dont move in freely, they are blown. And if that's the case, your amp could be damaged as well.

Most modern car amps have circuit protection and will shut down when they detect a load greater than they are used to so the amp MAY be ok. One way to test the amp is to hook another speaker to it, any speaker as a test is ok, and see if sound comes out. Make sure all power is off when connecting and disconnecting speakers!
