    I am having the exact same problem. The dryer has slowly been taking longer and longer to dry. We have cleaned out the vent inside and out. I also washed with a brush the removable lint tray. Someone sent me an e-mail from a repair man saying that a build up from dryer sheets can cause the dryer to overheat. I thouht this might solve my problem, but now there is no heat at all. HELP, my dryer is only 4 years old. I have a call in for a repair man.

Dishwasher not draining


Check the lower basin filter for debris. Most of them unscrew to gain access to the impellers that grind food particles. That's the drain area but by removing the filter and cleaning it, you may succeed..

Fuel injected 2008 triumph america , loss of power and fire in central part of nearside exhaust


Instructions
    • 1 Clean the underside of the motor with soap and water to remove any dirt and oil build-up that could contaminate the motor.
    • 2 Warm your motorcycle to operating temperature by starting the motor and letting the oil warm up or by taking a short ride. The oil will expand slightly and flow better to give you a more accurate reading.
    • 3 Park the motorcycle on a level surface and turn the ignition switch to the "Off" position. Place your Triumph on its center stand, if equipped with one, to provide additional stability.
    • 4 Place your catch basin directly below the oil drain plug on the underside of the motor and remove the drain plug with the appropriately-sized socket. Allow the oil to drain until the flow has reduced to a thin trickle then replace the drain plug.
    • 5 Locate the oil sump drain plug and center your catch basin below it. Remove the drain plug and allow the oil to drain until the flow is reduced to a thin trickle then replace the drain plug. Replace the drain plug. Note that this step is only required on certain models, such as the Thunderbird Sport and older "oil-in-frame" models.
    • 6 Remove the oil filter with an oil filter wrench and discard the old filter.
    • 7 Fill the new oil filter with fresh oil, coating the inner lip of the filter lightly with oil to provide a stronger seal before screwing the filter onto the motor. Tighten the filter by hand until it is secure.
    • 8 Add your engine oil into the oil tank. Replace the cover and wipe away any spilled oil.
    • 9 Locate the engine sump bolt, located at the base of the cylinders and the carburetors. Remove the bolt and add half a quart of oil into the sump. Replace the bolt and wipe away any spilled oil. Note that this step is only required on older "oil-in-frame" models.

Vax mach xp reach seems clogged and light is on


Clean the filters as per the user guide AND remove the silver, where the clear plastic handle is. On te back by the purple catch to release the dirt container is a screw - remove that and then remove the 3 screws on the purple lid with holes in it, remove the lid & clean the "cyclones" - mine were all blocked. Make sure all the bits are clean & dry & re-assemble.

Washer will not completly drain. The clothes are still really wet when the cycle has ended


I have had this washer and it has been a nightmare since day one... the problem is that your filter (catch basin is clogged) you have to unscrew the front of the bottom of the machine and you will see a round lint trap. make sure you have a bucket in front of you and beware it smells really bad... unscrew that and your golden-- dont even bother to put the front panel back on-- we have to clean our filter monthly.. good luck

My sister gave me her Brookstone Pure ion Air purifier....The "clean filter" light flashes red....I wiped the filter with a damp cloth...so think it is clean...?....Is this how to clean it? ....and how do...


Wiping it off won't clean the filter. I submerse mine in hot soapy water ( oxiclean w/any favorite multipurpose liquid cleaner.Let it air dry completely before placing it back in unit.I have tried the dishwasher method and it didn't clean it.I also thoroughly wash all crevices of the unit.If red light doesn't go off, reclean the filter(s). It has all ways worked for me.

Water is collecting at the bottom. Where is it


Refrigerators have a defrost water drain that carries water produced during the defrost cycle to the bottom of the refrigerator where it flows into a catch pan. The water is then evaporated by heat from the compressor and refrigerant coils.

Something is likely blocked in your drain system. There is usually a catch basin in the rear of the refrigerator behind the inside lining. From that catch basin, water flows into tubes which usually run down the back of the refrigerator. The drain in the catch basin may be stopped up, or the tube itself could be blocked.

Try removing the lint filter from the dryer and with no clothes, start the the dryer, and if it works then replace your lint filter.
Tip: Fabric softener sheets in the dryer can deposit an invisible coating on the screen of the filter and reduce air flow.

This is the link to your manual:
http://www.crane-usa.com/manuals/HumidifierManual2008.pdf

CAUTION:
Always be sure that the appliance is unplugged and switched OFF before cleaning or attempting to store the item. NEVER PLUG OR UNPLUG UNIT WITH WET HANDS.
DO NOT leave water in water tank or water basin when unit is not in use as it may result in the build up of mineral deposits and bacteria that can inhibit the output efficiency of the humidifier.
PLEASE NOTE that if water remains in the water tank for more than a day or two, bacterial growth is possible.
ALWAYS use fresh cool water when using unit.
NOTE:
When removing water tank, water may accumulate under vapor lid and on the bottom of the water tank. It is recommended to have a dry cloth ready to dry wet surfaces.
DISINFECTING THE WATER TANK AND WATER BASIN
1. Fill water tank with 1 teaspoon of household bleach in 1 gallon of water. Let stand twenty minutes, shaking vigorously with two hands every few minutes, drain and rinse with clean water until the bleach smell is gone. Dry with a clean cloth or paper towel.

2. Wipe the water basin with a soft cloth dampened in the bleach and water solution. Rinse the water basin with cool water to remove any bleach smell. DO NOT IMMERSE WATER BASIN IN WATER.

3. Wipe all exteriors surfaces of the base with a soft, dry cloth. Do not immerse the base in water or use water to clean the base. An electric shock may result or the humidifier may be damaged.
NOTE: It is recommended to clean humidifier with water and bleach solution as stated above after using the humidifier the fourth time.

GENERAL MAINTENANCE AND CLEANING
Before any cleaning operation, switch the humidifier off and unplug it.
1. Always unplug the unit before cleaning.

2. The humidifier must be drained and cleaned before storing.

3. Once unplugged the exterior of the unit may be cleaned by wiping with a soft dry cloth. Caution: The ON/OFF switch must be thoroughly dry before unit is again plugged into power source.

4. There may be some lime deposits in the nebulizer, particular in areas with hard water. Overcome this drawback by cleaning the nebulizer with water and vinegar on a soft cloth regularly, as follows:

A. Dampen a cloth with vinegar and wipe the nebulizer gently, until the lime deposits disappear completely.

B. Rub down gently with a dry cloth and remove remains of humidity.

C. Do not rub the nebulizer with solid objects.

D. Do not clean with chemical products

5. When cleaning the water basin do not place the nebulizer directly under the water tap.

6. Never immerse the unit in water or let water enter the fan vent (see figure 3) or any other openings.

7. It is normal for water to be in the water basin. However water must not get inside the central body. If this should happen, take the humidifier to an authorized service center before using it again.

8. Clean the inside of the water tank at least once a week, as follows:

A. Fill the tank with clean water adding a few drops of bleach. Close the tank completely with its cap and shake by holding the tank with both hands. Do not hold by handle while shaking the tank.

B. Rinse thoroughly.
Water Level Sensor- The water level sensor is made of three key parts. When cleaning DO NOT MISPLACE these parts and MAKE SURE that you assemble these three parts correctly after cleaning and before operating humidifier. They are as follows:
Plastic Cap – this part has 4 flat tabs coming out from the bottom and is placed on top of a plastic pin.
Water Float - a small round part resembling a "life saver" candy located underneath the plastic cap.
Pin – plastic pin that secures water float and plastic cap.
To clean the water float unscrew the plastic cap from the pin. Remove the water float and clean by wiping the parts with a soft damp cloth. Replace the parts by first putting the water float onto the pin and re-screwing the plastic cap onto pin.



Good Luck.
