Question about Plumbing

1 Answer

My second SM-303-BS has failed now. Each lasted no longer than 2 years. I have the pump on a timer which powers the unit from 7am-9pm. On both units the propeller has seized in the housing, but will operate once I take it out and manually get it started with a pin of my hand. Also, i clean the housing of any build up with emery cloth, but unit still wont spin in place. Thanks for your time! PG

hi there,

make sure that the program is not on the "Intermittent Agitate Program". that would be the cause of the delay.

the other issue would be the timer itself. the timer is mechanical, so once the contact on it is corroded, it will only function intermitently or not at all.

please let me know if i can be of more help.

thanks

Sounds like water hammer when water stops flowing abruptly it will "hammer" in the pipe the solution is to have a bounce tube above your faucet this gives the water a place to lose energy.

Yes.
Timers usually don't last more than a few years, unless you buy the heavier duty box timers that last decades.

I have a Simply Perfect For The Home brand Microwave Oven that I bought from the U.S. Military post here in Schweinfurt, Germany for $50 I live on the economy in my own apartment. The microwave is a 120...


Just as a NOTE: When I bought my Panasonic microwave from AAFES, before I took it home, they sent it through their maintenance department to adjust the internal voltage. Power for the US is 60 HZ. Power in Europe is 50 HZ. Long Technical Explanation shortened: there's more energy (Heat) in 50 Hz than 60HZ especially when used in anything that uses high power. AAFES adjusted the internal power down to compensate and keep from blowing up the unit. Look for a fuse inside. Replace it, then ask AAFES to reconfigure the product for lower power or 50Hz.
Also as a note, many, dare I say most, clocks from the US count the HZ to count time. So if your US clock, say on your coffeepot timer, looses time overseas; it's probably losing 4 hours a day (do the math: 50 hz/60hz=83.333_%. 83.3_%*24 hr=20 hrs or 4 hours lost). So, if your time is set for 7AM coffee start, when you get that cup of coffee at 7:10AM, set your clock forward to 11:10 AM; or at 7PM, make sure it actually says 9PM. It will loose enough time by the next 7AM to be correct.

Looking for a timer to turn a 120volt 2amp water pump on for 1min 2 times aday that will last for more than 3 years please help


1) You need 120V timer to control 2 amp water pump.
V x A = watts so 120V x 2amp = 240 watt
754 watts per HP divided by 240W = 1/3 HP horsepower.

2) To get 1 minute time periods, you need electronic timer.
Most electronic timers have minimum 1 minute set time.
Same schedule each day, you can use 356-day, 7-day or 24-hour electronic timer.

3) To have electronic timer last longer than 3 years you need a clean circuit and expensive timer.
Use circuit analyzer to check circuit. Hire electrician to check circuit and replace pump if necessary to make sure timer will last as long as possible.

4) Intermatic ET70115C should last for many years. Battery is replaced every 8 years.
http://www.intermatic.com/products/timers/electronic%20time%20switches/next%20generation%20time%20switches.aspx
ET70115C $379
http://www.1000bulbs.com/product/3391/ELEC-ET70115C.html

5) You posted under EH10 water heater timer, which is inexpensive water heater timer rated for 1HP. You can't expect inexpensive timer to last as long when using a motor, although 1/3 HP is lightweight motor.

6) You can buy five EH10's for same price as one ET70115C.

7) List of ordinary electronic timers, each with slightly different features
Intermatic EH10 $73

Intermatic ET1105C $96

Sylvania SA300 $72

My laptop is only 6 months old and will not boot up.


You will want to contact the manufacturer. They usually have a 1 year parts warrenty on your laptop. The most logical reason is that the mother board(Main PCB) has took a dump. You will want to read the material here: https://secure2.tx.acer.com/FixMyAcer3/FixMyAcer.aspx

My Aspire 5315 will not start


I actually contacted Acer by email for this and got a reply in less than a day.

Try the steps below for a power reset, to eliminate a hardware problem with your notebook:

1. Disconnect the AC adapter from the laptop.

2. Remove the battery.

3. Press and hold the power button for about 30 seconds then release it. (You will not see anything happen)

4. Connect the AC Adapter to the laptop. Make sure the AC Adapter is plugged in.

5. Turn the computer on as normal.

6. Once Windows boots, insert the battery.

If the notebook still does not power on, we recommend the notebook be serviced by our authorized repair depot. You can set this up for service yourself by going to www.acerpanam.com; click on the link for Depot Repair. If you are out of warranty, or you would rather do this via phone, please contact Acer Technical Support at 1-800-816-2237, Mon-Fri 7am-9pm CST and Sat-Sun 8am-5pm CST excluding holidays. For out of warranty products please call 1-866-621-2237. Hours of operation are 7am-8pm CST, Mon-Fri, and Sat-Sun 8am-5pm CST excluding holidays.
