Oh boy, that sounds like a mess. Never dealt with that problem, but here's an idea. Run dryer on high heat setting for a short time, wear gloves and long sleeves for protection and see if you can clean out the plastic while it's still 'gooey'. Use clean rags to wipe it out. You would probably have to do it several times. DON'T use any kind of cleaners, as they may explode or cause a fire from the heat. Good luck! Countrycurt0

I want to re make my pampers account, because I mistakenly put myself down as a male, but I am not a boy, I am a girl thank you

Not sure about Pampers but most online accounts have facility to edit profiles and make changes to the account or to delete an account altogether.

If in doubt I suggest you check with customer service because your details could remain with them for a considerable time so closing an account and then opening a new one straight away could cause trouble unless you use a different username, password and often email address too.

Hot tub froze up, tried resetting breaker , no response. want to take pond heater to thaw and try again. obviously not getting power, any suggestion on things i can do myself?

Open the access panel under the unit where the pump is located. Place a small electric heater in the cavity up off the floor and not pointed toward anything close so it won't melt. put it on a low setting and close up the access panel.
Leave power to the hot tub disconnected.
Check after an hour but unplug heater befor you open access panel again in case water may be leaking somewhere. More than likely you will probably find that you have some leaks when it thaws out.

Once it thaws out you'll probably have to replace the heater or the pump. one or the other failed unless it was due to a power failure.

Dryer will not heat up what part could be bad

There are lots of pieces that can fail. BE AWARE that you can DIE from errors with 220 volts, only proceed if you are skilled. But meanwhile, most issues happen in the breaker box, only 1/2 of the 220 volt breaker trips and is not obvious. Turn the breaker off, push HARD into the off position, and then back on. Test dryer.

Stuff that fails in the dryer are the control switch, metal, like a bra underwire, in the element, quick disconnects (look for discolored and melted plactic), and thermal controls. Again, do not go in there unless you consider yourself an expert. it is only a very small error that gets you killed, 220 volts (and 110 volts) plays for keeps.

2006 Chevy Equinox Smoke emitting from the steering column with smell of burnt plastic. I have popped off the harness cover but not been able to deduct source of smell or any damaged...

Turn signal switch is common issue, the plactic melts when the contacts overheat. look for discolored or malformed plastic, near wires and contacts.

My break lights are constantly going bad on my 240 volvo. From the fuses to the sockets to the little white box in the back where the wiring hooks up to the lights having a melt. Why can't I get my breaks...

When the plactic melts, the metal has overheated too much and cannot be restored. Cut out the old sockets, and enough of the wire to get un heat damaged wire. and splice in the new sockets. DO not use the old bulbs, get new ones, or the issue can continue.

We are having issues again with the 2003 tdi automatic. If you need to put your foot into the paddle and are only in first gear it will go into the starvations mode. You then have to pull over and shut it...

Sounds like it is starving for fuel, try replacing the fuel filter too, for gods sake do not by pass filters for too long just to test is fine. good luck
