Firstly, you must size the unit to cool the house, too big, it will freeze up, too small, will provide inadequate cooling.
Secondly, most new units come equipped with a theft deterrent installation kit, or you can get 1 from a service center. Other than booy-trapping the perimeter, there is not a whole lot you can do to prevent a determined thief from taking his desire.

I have a liftmaster, that requires u to push a button on back of unit 6 sec to reset and accept no openers.. Then u push once and your opener u press til the light flashes.. The problem is that last night...

When you say your set the opener, did you mean you change the codes to something different? If you did the opener on truck will not open door. Was the truck in the garage when it got stolen? They know where you live? Have you got security system on house and garage?

Always listened to am in the car no problem ,but the last few day it is silent, in the house it is ok

More than likely, the AM circuitry within your radio is not functioning; damaged Integrated Circuits, Transistors, etc.. The FM band is usually decoded within a small metal box inside the unit called a FM Front End. For more information, please visit my website at Thank you.

How to fix glass sliding problem on samsung pn50a650 tv.

We have a Samsung plasma and noticed the glass sliding down as well. We popped the plastic frame off and put the glass back in place and then put new double sided sticky tape down across where the old tape was. We popped the frame back on and the glass hasnt moved at all. I did call Samsung and our warranty ended last month, so I am waiting for them to call me on setting up a tech to come out. However I do feel that we shouldnt have to pay for this since they did not secure the glass besides some sticky tape and a plastic frame! I will post what Samsung says after I receive the call from the technician on how to fix this problem. But this has fixed the problem for now.

3 month old magnavox mdr515h/f7 is dead. It may be under some warr. Had power go off during a storm last night. Unit was plugged into a surge strip and other items on it are ok. don't know if it quit then...

My unit was dead also.....So I checked outlet first...It was good....Then I tried the 10 minute disconnect and reconnected unit......Saw Unit had power on LCD screen....Hit ON button on remote after changing to HDD and unit works perfectly again....That fix saved me 75 bucks for repair center to do same thing...Glad Funai makes units that shut off before damage occurs...Unit just needed to cool down hard drive or circuitry before it sensed it was ok again....When plugged in it is still technically powered even tho you dont see it on the LCD screen of the unit...

How do i install a blower motor in my 1981 Corvette

1.First, if your car has Air Conditioning, loosen the compressor, and take the AC belt loose. Remove it from the AC compressor pulley.

2.Slide the AC compressor as far as it will go, towards the fender well.

3.The plastic Radiator Overflow tank has to be removed. Remove the overflow hose, and remove the bolts holding the tank to the inner fender well. It's a little tough to get to those bolts. I use a 1/4" drive ratchet, 6" and 10" quarter inch extensions, plus a flex adapter. Use either the 6" extension, or the 10" extension, where needed.

The plastic overflow tank is twisted a little, as you remove it. The shape makes it a little tough, but if you move it around, as you bring it out, you can gently twist it out of there. Use caution, as this is a plastic tank, and may be brittle due to age, plus heat from the engine compartment.

4.Now look at the firewall. This is the area under the windshield, and in the engine compartment. Facing the windshield, look to the upper left corner. You will see a motor attached to a plate. The plate has five corners on it.
Remove the electrical connections to it. Lay the small wire harnesses aside. Remove the machine head screws that attach the plate to the blower housing.

The plate is attached to the blower housing with a gasket seal. This is a Black rope like seal, and is very sticky! Due to age, and heat, the blower motor plate may be stuck to the blower housing, pretty well! You may have to use a putty knife to help loosen it.

The putty knife is eased under the edge of the blower motor plate, and is worked around the edge. You may want to wear some type of protective gloves, because if you slip, your fingers/hand could be jammed right against that blower motor plate edge. This edge can be a hazard to your hand, due to the force when your hand MAY strike it.
Safety above ALL else!
Also should your fingers/hand get up against the sticky Black seal, you will get sticky residue on your hands, or fingers. Kind of tough to remove.

Also I advise using finesse when using the putty knife. The blower motor housing, can be damaged by the edge of the putty knife.

Now it's just a matter of installing a new rope seal, or using some silicon of a tube, to form a gasket on the new blower motor plate. Observe how the old one is, and form yours accordingly.

Bolt the new blower motor in place, reattach the wire harnesses.
Put the Radiator Overflow tank back in. Reattach the Overflow Tube. Move the AC compressor back over so you can slip the AC belt back on. Put the correct tension on the belt, by using the 1/2" square hole in the AC compressors bracket, and pull the AC compressor towards the fender. I use a 1/2" breaker bar. The correct method, is to use a belt tensioner gauge, to test the tension of the AC belt.

The frame wont click into place

My daughter has just brought me a Bugaboo which is 25 months old (one month out of warranty) and after several hours work I have figured out the problem.
The reason that this seems to occur after a year or so is, I believe, related to the fact that the housing in which the white button sits is made of thermoplastic and is not dimensionally stable. For the button to work properly both the circular hole in which the button sits and the button itself must be circular and the button must be very slightly smaller in diameter than the housing. If either of these are slightly distorted the button will stick.
The other thing to know is that when the cradle is off the chassis the button will always be in the 'in' position. What pushes it out is the pressure of the part of the chassis on which the cradle sits when you push the cradle onto the frame (you can demonstrate this by getting a screwdriver or thin dowel) and pusing down on the plate within the socket on the cradle that sits on the chassis - when you do this the button will pop out and when you take the pressure off it will pop in again).
If when the cradle is attached to the chassis the button is not out, give it a few quick sharp presses on one side to make sure it isn't binding on the plastic within it sits.
This should releases it.
The cure? You need to dissamble the button assembly and spray some silicone lubrication or similar and make sure the various parts are working smoothly. Also you need to check to see if the white button is binding on its black housing. If it is, then carefully use some wet and dry paper or similar abrasive on the circumference of the button until it stops binding
Having figured out how this works I have to say that I consider the mechanism to be a very poor one considering the price that is charged for Bugaboos. If they took a little more care and made sure the button and housing wouldn't distort with age and bind, the problem wouldn't exist.
Hope this helps.

Clicking nosie from scanner bed on epson cx5800f

I had a similar problem, the scanner bar was stuck to the far left side. Here's how I fixed it:

1)Unplug the printer, disconnect any cables/phone lines to it.
2)Lift up the entire scanner bed housing(you will see the printer ink cartridges).
3)Locate the access patch (approx 1 cm x 1 cm square) along the left edge of the scanner bed housing(this is the side that closes in, next to the keypad buttons).
4)Using a small knife blade, peel off the patch from the corners and edges(it's sticky. Save it, you can stick it back over the hole when you're done).
5)Stick a pen through the access hole, and push the scanner bar to the right, approximately 2-3 inches.
6)Now, close the scanner housing, plug in the printer, and power it on.

It should reset and re-calibrate the scanner bar. If it doesn't, repeat steps 5) and 6) a couple times, until the printer correctly performs calibration. Then, you can put the sticky patch back over the hole, and you're ready to go. Hope this helps!

Taking photo's requiring the flash.

the flash housing unit is stucked!!  Try to do this: use around 3 inches sticky tapes like scotch tape or masking tape, stick the 1/3 part on the flash housing unit , now set the release button while pulling the tape upward, do not apply too much force, you are trying to help the housing to go upward not to detached it, ha ha..( the sticky tape is safe to use, dont worry). It always work but in case it does not work from your unit try this dangerous one, using small metal and pressing the release button try to open the door ( yes, like opening the stucked door!), its dangerous that yo might detached the housing from the unit, so be carefull.
