My fan just stopped working. It beeps when you plug it in but that's about it. I tried taking the back off to blow it out but there's one screw that's different from all the rest and don't know what tool to use to take it out

Acer extensa laptop is working only fan not work please give asolutions

First you can try duster spray for electronics to blow out any dust in the vents of laptops. If this doesn't help - there is laptop fans - portable that you put under the laptop itself to help with ventilation problems. If this doesn't help then watch a video on how to take apart your laptop - simple steps, un screw the back and take off cover, once done locate fan and use duster to blow out dust. Screw everything back together and turn on laptop. If this doesn't fix your problem and fan still doesn't work, then you may need a new fan = take this to a professional pc repair shop where they can replace it for you. I recommend MicroCenter (which is a all pc repair shop) stores located everywhere. look it up (

Projector Beep Alerts

When a projector beeps on power up you have a couple things to be concerned about. If the projector is hot, the beeps can mean that it needs longer to cool down.

If you have not used the projector for several hours then it is cooled down. When cold, the beep alerts usually mean the blower fan bearing is restricted.

Clean the air filter and blow out the fan housing. You should just blow with your mouth because compressed air may damage your wiring connections.

If the projector is cleaned and you power it back up AND the beeps continue listen to the fan. The fan may need a little air pressure to help it start turning and then once it does the beeps should stop.

My 2000 VW Beetle's Ac stopped working. It doesnt blow any air out at all. Also the break light and the ABS lights are on. The ABS came on after the breaks got changed. The Break light is blinking and...

Sounds like you have some electrical gremlins that have moved in...

Since the fan does not even come on, and the fuses keep blowing. It sounds like the resistor pack for the blower motor could have failed, or a wire is shorted somewhere.

The ABS could simply be a wire, or sensor that was carelessly overlooked to be plugged back in when the breaks were done. Or it could be more serious.

My thermador oven is getting an F7 error message and it won't stop beeping. I tried holding the off botton but that won't do it.

You can take off the part of the front (the thing that looks like a vent and when that is off you can see a plug in. Unscrew two screws and then plug back in and screw the two screws back and it will stop beeping. We have a built in Thermador oven, microwave and warming drawer together. We had to find out by ourselves because we couldn't get to our breaker box. Hope this will help someone someday :)

Lanson smoke alarm model LANSD240B S/N 139606 Alarm alert beeping. Replaced battery, tried 2 new battries, still beeps. No smoke or fumes found.

try this, remove the unit and take out the battery you will see 4 small rubber plugs in the back.
remove these and take out the 4 screws, you will find a lot of dust and insects in there, gently blow out with compressed air and the sensor as well.

My emachine turns on, the fan blows but it never boots up. The fan just keeps blowing. Any suggestions?

Well there is couple of culprit that cause this issue which ranges from a bad vga, motherboard, ram or even the cpu itself, First of all, check to see if you hear any beeps after turning the computer on. If you hear random beeps or constant beeps then it could be something wrong with your memories. The only way to test things out is if you have other hardware parts to test it otherise it is hard to pin point what is actually wrong. A simple thing that may help is by resetting the cmos, in this case you can take the side panel which would be on your left off by unscrewing the screws in the back of the case panel. There should be a nickel size battery on your mainboard. If you don't know how to short the pins, go ahead and just take out that battery for about 15sec or so and replaced back on. Then try to start your computer agian. If it works then good, if it doesn't then it could be other hardware component that become faulty. Like I said the only other way to know what is actually wrong is to have spare component parts to test it with.... other then that, you may need to take this to a computer repair place since the have the parts to diagnose it with.

My Emachines Desktop W5243 works sometimes and others just beeps

You might be having a minor dust particle situation going on. Take the memory out of the system. Get a can of air and blow out the slots on the motherboard where the memory would normally go. Then take the can of air and blow the connectors on both sides of the memory. After this then put the memory back into the slot firmly. Don't worry cause the memory can only go in one way in the slots. It should snap into place. After this then turn the computer on and it should boot up fine. If you keep having intermittent problem after this then replace the memory.

Fan works timer works but no heat

There is no fuse. Take back cover off and all bottom perimeter screws. Outside cover pulls off towards rear once you get all the ** little screws out. Chances are you will find burned connections on the heating elements poking out the sides of the heating chamber. Try cleaning these and squeeze them tighter before reconnecting. Good luck!

How to examine MFF2557HES evap fan?

Yes, if you're not afraid of removing service panels and replacing parts, then this is something that you can probably replace without too much trouble. Very straightforward, just remove the fan motor assembly & screw a new back into it's place. And yes, that sounds very probable if you've already tried defrosting the machine first.
