the problem should be from the heating element. Its either the heating element is defective and needs to be replaced or heat has melted the wire connected to the heating element which have cause disconnection.

To discover what actually the problem is, you will need to disassemble the Kitchen range and chage if there is any disconnection.

You don't have to disassemble the whole unit, just the fault part will do.

Good luck.

I have a neff T1.D20 dual circuit hotplate but although the inner lights up and gets hot the outer part doesnt. Is the outer part supposed to?

I have a T172 model which also has a dual circuit hotplate.

In the control area you should find a dual circuit control pad - this has two concentric circles on it. With the hob switched on, pressing this button will chnage the mode of the dual circuit hot plate bewteen:
1. Just the inner part
2. Both the inner and outer together.

When the hob is switched off using the Standby control pad, it remembers which mode was selected and will therefore work the same next time it is switched on. However, it is worth noteing that when the mains power to the hob is interuppted, either by an isolator switch/breaker, or a power cut, the hob defaults back to just the inner ring mode.

Paslode 3250F16 air leaking

Leaking from the bottom of the gun is usually caused by seal between cylinder and body (oring reference 86) and the cylinder seal (ref.17). Look for fine scratches with magnifying lens on all surfaces where orings contact and remove with very fine paper (300grt.). Also check orings for small cuts with magnify lens. As you examine the orings lightly streach them and look at the outer surface. The cylinder seal must be tight on the cylinder and should be very smooth on the top surface and no cracks. The head must have all four prongs that push the cylinder into the housing.
Most leaks from head are caused by main valve seal (ref.58) and fine scratches. Lube all orings and surfaces with silicone paste sold at Lowes and other stores in the plumbing department. It is used to lube faucet orings. Good luck and email if you have other questions about your repair project.

Small burner of dual surface(right front) stopped working.

Does yours have the (small large burner switch)? If so, try switching it back and forth. It could be defective or your small burner element is bad.

Pentax Optio S - lens cover rings popped off

I'd be most happy to share with you how I solved my problem with the Pentax Optio S. It took a bit of clever 'problem-solving' thought and inspection. After suddying the design of each piece and the working components of the exposed lens area, I was able to identify which sections worked together appropriately.
And, I think it appropriate at this time that I ask you to purchase one of my plans in order to receive the full benefit of what I learned from my skillful thinking and examination, and thereby successfully repaired my camera.
I look forward to hearing from you.

Dual NavAtlas XNAV3500P

I had the same problem, check the fuse, also if the fuse is blown check the piece that fits into the device, you may have lost the little part that stops the fuse from blowing, it looks like a small ring on the end, stops it from shorting.

Does anyone know where I can purchase a NavAtlas 3550 cigarette lighter charger? I have tried 2 Universal adapters and none work! HELP!!

its been my experience that the dual burner switch is far more likely the culprit, unless you can physiclaly see the outer ring is broken( visual inspection works wonders. as far as trying to ohm out i generally look at theelemnet itself (4 wires lead to the elemnt you can trace 1 to the outer portion of element, and 1 to the inner portion.WITH POWER OFF Iswithc those 2 wires and the restore power try element ad watch for outer ring to work inner ring no good. now i know its the switch not sending power. reset wires and order new switch
