Water not going into well water tank

Is the pump running when power is ON?
Put ear against pipe and listen for pump.
Have you installed a check valve?
Check vlave lets water pass through the pipe and enter tank, but the valve closes after pump shuts off and keeps water from falling back down into well.

What does blinking pf mean

This means 'Power 'Failure'.
This could be from the circuit breaker being tripped and then was reset, wall outlet issue, or possibly if the cord was replaced then the screws conecting the wires to dryer may not be tight. Make sure dryer in unplugged before checking connections.
Some homes have an energy management system where higher energy use appliances are given a priorty so they all cannot run at same time so keeps your electric bill lower.
For example, the water heater and a/c system would be wired to override the dryer so if both these were runnng and then you turned on the dryer, the control unit would shut power down to dryer within a short time.
Hope this helps.

I have an almost new Midland 75-822 that the WX works fine on, but the CB doesn't seem to receive, or transmit. It operates normally, but no reception, and no evidence of transmissions.

you'll need a schematic and some knowledge. there a two diodes that control the rx and two that control the dx.Check them to make sure they are producing the correct power out put if they are not you should replace all 4

My cb is on and i can hardly hear it, the volume is all the way up and i've adjusted the squeltch also any ideas?

check swr's, if ok. those 18's 19utras and wx radios have small vertical boards that get loose and will cause them to either loose TX or RX sometimes both.. they need to be taken out resolderd and 99% of time is the fix.... other probs, bad speaker. or broken mic wire.. check with another speaker and another know good, mic..

When scanning the radio resumes before end of transmission

The manual states that the scanning will halt whenever the squelch is broken by a transmission, just as expected. When the transmission is complete, the radio continues scanning. This makes hearing any reply nearly imposible to monitor - and is the problem I believe you are describing.

Page 37 of the manual says that a 2 second delay can be assigned to a frequency whenever the radio has paused on a channel. Simply press the DELAY key on the scanner to assign the delay to the channel. If there is no additional transmission within 2 seconds, scanning will resume.

Below is a copy of the manual to reference or print if you can't find yours (you'll need a free program called "Adobe Reader" found at to view or print this manual).

I hope this helps!

Cobra 75 wx st everything seems to work eccept receiving signal meter will spike on trx and it seems to receive but no sound there is sound in wx mode

WX is for weather. If you put it on WX, and you do not hear anything, then you need to change the weather station it is on. in wx mode, you change weather channels by pressing channel up and down. To communicate with 2 way, press the cb/wx button so it is on CB mode.
