My heater keeps clicking and trying to turn off, but pops right back on before it acutally shuts down. The little control box next to the fuel heater is the noise maker

Hi,
Will it shut down if you unhook the t-stat wires???
If so then the problem is not in the heater...

Other wise you may have a t-stat/wiring problem....

turn down the t-stat and check if it stops....

then if it goes like that when the t-stat is calling for heat the flame sensor of the t-stat is bad...

My first iclination would be the flame sensor and/or ignition control...

Heater keeps turning on & off but no heat


What type of heater are we talking about? if its the home furnance, it sounds like the ignitor is coming on and shutting back down, the heat comes on ignite and the blower comes on like normal, then after a few minutes it will shut down, you will have to remove the ignitor, clean it with a little piece of sand paper to remove the carbon build-up, replace the ignitor and turn the furnance back on, this should correct the problem.

CD drive not working


Based on your indication the CD drive is clean, and you know the cables are attached to it, inside the computer. (Flat ribbon IDE interface cable, and 4-pin Molex connector power cable)

1.Go to Device Manager

Left-click on Start. Right-click on My Computer. Go down, and Left-click on Properties. Left-click on the Hardware tab. Go down, and Left-click on Device Manager.

Left-click on the + sign to the left of, DVD/CD-ROM drives.
Right-click right on the name of the CD drive.

(Example: Lite On DVDRW LH-20A1P.
eMachines Support indicates the T5212 has a DVD burner drive, and a CD drive. Right-click on the CD drive name))

In the drop down list, Left-click on Properties.
Left-click on the Driver tab
Go below, and Left-click on the Update Driver 'button'. Now go below, and Left-click on OK.

Close all windows, go back to your desktop screen.
Shut your computer down normally. (Start>Turn Off Computer>Shut Down)

Do Not Restart. We need a 'Hard Shut Down'.
Wait 1 minute, turn your computer on.

Still doesn't work?
Let's play hard ball.

2.Go back to Device Manager. Left-click on the + sign to the left of DVD/CD-ROM drives. Right-click on the name of the CD drive. Left-click on Properties. Left-click on the Driver tab.
This time go down, and Left-click on the Uninstall 'button'. Go below, and Left-click on OK

There will be a Microsoft 'squawk box' that comes up. "Warning you are about to uninstall this device"
Left-click on OK. (It IS okay!)

Close all windows. Shut down your computer normally. (Again, we need a 'Hard Shut Down'. To Restart a computer is known as a 'Soft Shut Down')

Wait 1 minute. Turn your computer on.
After Windows loads all the way, and all of your Start Menu programs have loaded, you should see a pop-up out of your system tray. (Bottom of Windows desktop screen)

"Found New Hardware", and perhaps another one, "Found XYZ CD drive". (XYZ = the CD drive name)

No still?

The driver for your CD drive, is located within the Windows XP operating system on your computer.
If your CD drive does not work now, I suggest it has failed.

Drives such as Optical drives, and Harddrives, are mechanical devices. Their 'Lifespan', is rated in so many hours of usage. Your CD drive may be at the end of it's 'Lifespan'.

Rheem power vent water heater shut down due to toxic vapour


Are you getting an error code? I could just be the pressure switch on the unit not allowing it to come on. You can try removing the hose from the inducer and blowing into and drawing air in and out of the tube. You will hear a clicking noise when you do this. Reattach the hose and try the system. Also, you have to unplug the unit for at least 10 minutes and then plug it back in to reset the controls. If the "Guardian" system still senses the fumes, it will not allow the unit to kick on. I could be awhile for the fumes to disapate before it will work. Try putting a low volume fan on the base of the unit to try and keep fresh air moving around the "Guardian" sensor.

Systemax laptop not shutting completely down


Try this ;

Buried deep inside Windows XP lurks a little-known program called shutdown that shuts down your system in a very fast � but orderly � way. Here's how to put an icon on your desktop that'll shut down your machine quickly:

1. Right-click any empty location on your desktop.

2. Click New, Shortcut.

The Create Shortcut Wizard appears.

3. In the Type the Location of the Item box, type shutdown -s -t 0.

It's important that you put spaces before each hyphen, that you have no spaces after each hyphen, and that you use a zero at the end.

4. Click Next. 5. In the Type a Name for This Shortcut box, use a name that will remind you that this button is for a very quick shut down.

6. Click Finish.

True Vector


Click the Start button. Choose Run. Type in msconfig, then click OK. In the window that comes up, click the tab Startup (on the top line). Look for TrueVector Service and uncheck the box next to it. Don't change anything else. Click OK. The next time you start the computer, Msconfig will pop up to tell you you've made a change. Tell it not to start next time and close the window.
That should do it.
By the way, you said you DELETED Zone Alarm. You can't just delete a program. You need to remove it by going to Control Panel and then Add/Remove Programs. Otherwise there will be remnants of the program that might still try to run.

New 95% goodman keeps giving Code 1


Not having a model number to help you with, I can only give you generic info. Typically a flashing 1 represents that the furnace has exceeded its allowed attempts to start. Not much help. If I can suggest removing the access panel on the furnace and tape down the door safety switch. That being done, have a helper turn up the thermostat and you get your head inside the furnace cabinet and document what it does. It should first blink on the LED indicating a call for heat. Next the inducer blower should start up (the small blower hooked to the exhaust pipe). Next you may see an orange glow where the burner is. There should be a small clear port where you can watch this. Next some clicking should be heard from the gas valve. Then the orange glow should turn to a blue flame. This flame should travel all the way right and left igniting all the burners. Then it should stay on until the call for heat is satisfied.

After doing this and with your model number, get back to us and we may be able to pin-point your issue.
