They may only sound blown because you don't have enough amps pushing them. Try hooking them up to an amp and to see if they still sound blown. If they do, take them back and get your money back. Hope this helps, James Booth.

Radio has power the display button works but radio will not play


You either have a blown speaker or the amplifier in the radio has gone bad. Sometimes a blown speaker will act as an additional ground thus grounding out the radios internal amp. Check your speaker by hooking them to an external audio source. If you do have a blown speaker once it is removed all working speakers should play. Speakers should be replaced in pairs. If they all work its the radio itself. It will need to be replaced.

Heater fan fuse


David I dont have th schematics for your fuseblock layout for your vehicle but when I am having problems with a component in my vehicle I use a pair of pliers or a fuse puller and pull all of the fuses one at a time and check them for being blown. If I find a blown fuse I replace the one blown with the same size. If you are having problems with the fan motor I would suggest that you find where the wires hook up to the fan and check them for 12volts using a volt meter. If you have the voltage chances are that the motor in the fan is no good. Hope this helps

I have a model 5BS520C. The light works but when I pull the chain for the fan, I hear the sound of three speeds but the blades do not turn. ed.pfohl@gmail.com


Here some toubleshooting:

Problem 1. Fan will not start.
Probable Cause
1. Fuse or circuit breaker blown.
2. Loose power line connections to the fan, or loose wire connections in the switch housing.
3. Reversing switch in neutral position.

Suggested Remedy
1. Check main and branch circuit fuses or circuit breakers.
2. Check line wire connections to fan and switch wire connections in the switch housing.
3. Make sure reversing switch position is all the way to one side.

WARNING: Make sure main power is turned off.

Problem 2. Fan sounds noisy.
Probable Cause
1. Blades not attached to fan.
2. Loose screws in motor housing.
3. Screws securing fan blade flanges to motor hub are loose.
4. Switch housing binding against the blade hub.
5. Wire connectors inside switch housing rattling.
6. Screws holding blades to flanges are loose.

Suggested Remedy
1. Attach blades to fan before operating.
2. Check to make sure all screws in motor housing are snug (not over-tight).
3. Check to make sure the screws which attach the fan flanges to the motor hub are tight.
4. Check to make sure that the switch housing does not bind against the blade hub.
5. Check to make sure wire connectors in switch housing are not rattling against each other or against the interior wall of the witch housing.
6. Tighten screws securely.

WARNING: Make sure main power is turned off.

Problem 3. Fan wobbles
Probable Cause
1. Setscrew in motor coupling is loose.
2. Setscrew in the hanger ball/downrod assembly is loose.
3. Screws securing fan blade flanges to motor hub are loose.
4. Fan blade flanges not seated properly.
5. Hanger bracket and/or outlet box is not securely fastened.
6. Fan blades could be out of balance.

Suggested Remedy
1. Tighten the setscrew in the motor coupling.
2. Tighten the setscrew in the hanger ball/downrod assembly.
3. Check to be sure screws which attach the fan blade to motor hub are tight.
4. Check to be sure the fan blade flanges seat firmly and uniformly to the surface of the motor hub. If flanges are seated incorrectly, loosen the flange screws and retighten.
5. Tighten the hanger bracket screws to the outlet box, and/or secure outlet box.
6. Interchanging an adjacent (side-by-side) blade pair can redistribute the weight and result in smoother operation.

WARNING: FOR YOUR OWN SAFETY TURN OFF POWER AT FUSE BOX OR CIRCUIT BREAKER BEFORE TROUBLESHOOTING YOUR FAN!!!

Hope helps.

HONEYWELLTL8230A1003 THERMOSTAT, THE SCREEN GOES BLANK THEN ON F


Well, it's an be only one of three things then (in order) -

1) Bad wiring connection, particularly the middle pair of white and black wires connected to the supply wiring, or
2) One of the breakers or fuses has tripped or blown, or
3) Bad thermostat.

If 1 is OK, check 2 (double check if breakers, sometimes they don't look tripped when they are), and lastly, take the stat back and get another one.

The ground is secondary, and it is assumed your living in a house where 14-2, 12-2, or 10-2 with ground was NOT used. If it was, hook up the ground. If not, it's OK. The grounding requirement was added to the NEC after your house or whatever was built. It is not electrically active or needed for this circuit.

Reply back what your findings are. Will be glad to help!

When i turn on the cd player the sound from the components vuts off but the sound coming through the subwoofer stays on??


The Sub gets it's output from the pre-amp circuit, whereas the components get their output from the main amp circuit in the unit.

Sounds like it could be a short in the speaker wiring or a blown speaker. Check all wiring to the speakers.

Check all speaker wires from the unit to the speakers.

First check that each pair of speaker terminals at the speaker end is not touching. Or, a wire fell of 1 terminal to rest on another.

Best way to check if it's a blown speaker or a wiring short, is to disconnect all speaker connections ( at the speaker end ) making sure the disconnected wires don't touch each other or any metal in the car. press the reset on the unit and power up. If the unit powers up ok, then its a blown speaker.

Otherwise it's a short in the wiring.

If it's a blown speaker, you can connect 1 speaker at a time and the blown 1 will send the unit into protect mode again.

If it's the wiring, disconnect the unit from the wiring and use and ohm meter to check each pair of cables. A reading suggests a short.

If you don't have an ohm meter a battery and bulb will do. This method usually works on a short.

If you have no joy with either method, take each speaker wire in turn and check with a source of earth (anything metal connected directly to the body of the car, cigar lighter main body when pulled slightly out is good)

when you have a home amp that is in protect mode you have shorted o/p transistor(s) usually 1 goes bad but should be replaced in pairs. there are typically about 5 pairs. you need to find them & replace them.if you are not to enthoustic about removing & reinstalling boards in the amp, you may want to take it into a repair shop. the thransistors are typically 10 to 25 each. good luck.

Voice coil has been blown open. Most likely alot of times what I do to test a speaker is connect it to a 9 volt battery. on and off and the speaker should bounce. If not speaker is blown. Plus this way you could save yourself lots of problems. If the speaker was shorted and not blown open. You would now possible have a blown amp and home stereo.
