Hi from retired Englishman in SW France

It is necessary to ensure absolutely that the machine, even when empty, has all 4 feet very firmly on the floor, and I mean firmly ;-0)

Doesn't matter whether it is empty or not but switch it off then-
very firmly push one front corner diagonally into the centre of the machine and see if the machine moves or rocks AT ALL, even the slightest. If it does you will need the open-ended spanner which came with the (new) machine........which of course went missing a long time ago?!! An adjustable spanner will suffice.
Adjust the foot under that corner downwards until it is very firmly- almost pushing- against the floor but not so far that the corner lifts up!
If this corner did not rock do the same to the other.
Once you cannot rock the machine the slightest little bit, screw the locking nuts up tight to the underside of the machine so that they will not move. Ideally the rear feet should also be locked.

Good luck,

John C

My LaCie one terabyte external hard drive does not seem to be functioning. The blue light on the front of the drive is glowing however it's not making any noise. When I unplugged it and plugged it bac


The first word that comes to mind when you describe what you are hearing is OUCH! That hard drive has failed on you. The buzz and clicks are caused by a logic problem within the drive. The hard drive is trying to find a certain location on the drive and is operating the read-write head arm assembly starting at the outside and continuing to move it inward (buzzing) until it reaches the end (clicking) and then it resets (more buzzing) and starts the process over again. Any data that you have on that drive is gone unless you want to send the drive into a data recovery lab such as Ontrack (found at Kroll Ontrack recognized leader in legal technologies and data recovery... ). Be aware that such services typically cost around $1000. In any case, it's time to buy a new external hard drive. In my professional experience, I have found that Seagate hard drives are the most reliable, so I would definitely suggest you look at one of theirs.

Having said that, be aware that any hard drive will be prone to failure if you take it with you from place to place regularly, so I would recommend that if you intend to do that, replace the drive every year or so just to play it safe and not run as much risk of losing important data.

I hope this helps. Let me know if I can provide any further assistance.

My desktop 4700 when turned on there is a buzzing soud about 6 times off/on-also the mouse,monitor,keyboard inop.monitor shows power saver on & goes off


I am going off of the assumption that the buzzing sound you refer to is actually the BIOS Post Code since your are not seeing the post check screen. With that in mind, you should reseat your motherboards memory sticks (not the hard drive, the RAM). Be sure to of course power off the computer, use a grounding strap and generally follow all safety steps for basic PC maintenance.

Raypack pool/spa heater works intermittently


You can try pulling your pilot assembly out and clean it. Sometimes it will get sooted up and cause the sensor to short so the heater get's a falce reading and shuts the heater down. Then sometimes the heater will start and sometimes it won't. If this dosen't help check the ignition wire for any cracks or anyplace it may be shorting. Good luck.

The machine struggles to move grounds through after brewing. The tray seems to be locked in.


Your brew unit is probably dirty and needs cleaning. However, it won`t always help just running the cleaning program. Try to clean out all the used ground that is stuck inside the brew unit; use your fingers or a toothbrush maybe. Then run the cleaning program. It may be smart to run the program once or twice after this too, but you don`t have to use the tablet everytime.

It is the grounds blade that holds the used ground container so you can`t get it out. This means that the brew unit stops in a wrong position, and don`t get back to grinding position before timeout. If you shut down the machine for a few hours, it usually moves back during startup. But of course; this indicates that you need to clean up inside...

Buzz


It sounds like the mic has a bad ground.

This could either be in the connector at the end, or the cord itself.

To answer your question it would require several questions to be answered but as a general rule $300.00 + Compressor would be a start point for me HERE.
To Check your compressor:
Either your compressor is broken inside or the start components are not working properly. Ohm the compressor terminals to ground and across to each other.

If any read anything to ground the compressor is bad.
Your readings between the compressor terminals should all be different and you should have 1 low 1 medium and 1 high resistance reading.
Add the low and mid reading together and the sum should be close to the highest reading. If it reads say 20% more or less then retest it a couple of times to confirm your not slipping on the terminals.
Assuming the above checks out: Get a new Start relay (start capacitor if so equipped) relay and overload (and capacitor if it has one) In other words everything that is external and attached to the wires or terminals on the compressor, and replace them on to the compressor. Then if it starts problem solved if it still does same thing the compressor is bad (broken mechanically inside the compressor) and you have to decide to replace compressor or replace the refrigerating compressor be it AC or Refrigeration.
.
A few times I have gotten a compressor to start after leaving it off for 6 to 12 hours then retrying it. See the compressor unless left off for 6 to 12 hours and sometimes as long as 24 hours Is tight due to linear expansion from heat. And about 1/2 the time it is ok after new start components are installed. The other 1/2 the compressor will be ok for a day or 2 then stop again. Most likely from a “hard spot” in the movement of the internal parts in the compressor.

30 years of doing refrigeration and this has not changed.
Please rate me as high as you can and ask me to clarify anything you don’t understand.
