I would first check the water flow with your water flow gauge. If it is too high, you can use a restrictor plate that may help you get your correct coverage back. If it is too low, that means its a problem with your pump, not the cleaner. Check your shoes and wings. If they are worn, it could cause the pool cleaner to not be able to climb properly. If it has always had this problem, it could be that your hose is too short and it cannot reach all points of the pool effectively. You can buy additional hose sections if this seems to be the problem. A few more things to try: check and clean your rear screen, make sure that your cone gear is free and rotates smoothly in all directions, and check your gear box to make sure that it doesn't need to be repaired or replaces.

How to fix cannon mx320 Check ink U162 error

For many Canon printers, you can clear the U162 error by pressing and holding the Stop/Resume button on the printer. (You may need to turn off the printer and turn it back on. Then press and hold this button when the error appears on the LCD screen.)

This error can mean that the ink system is having problems pulling ink through to the nozzles or that the printer believes that the cartridge is empty/too old. You can try a deep cleaning To access this, press the Menu button several times until Maintenance is displayed. Then use the left or right arrows to navigate to Deep Cleaning and press OK. Wait until the process is complete (1 1/2 minutes). The second issue is sometimes related to the printer's firmware program that checks the cartridge identification information.

I hope this helps.

New navigator stays in deep end 99% of time, comes to shallow end, turns around & goes back to deep end

If your filter is placed toward the deep end of your pool, it could be that the pool cleaners hose is too short to reach the shallow end. You might want to test it and add more hose if necessary. It could also be a steering failure. There are a couple things to check if this is happening. Check and clean the rear screen. Make sure that your cone gear is free and rotates smoothly. You might also need to clean, repair, or replace your gearbox.

I have a whirlpool WFS1071BD. When we wash the red light comes on saying clean pump and i can not find the manual can you help me out. Cheers Mark

Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly.

This is the WFS1071AW version of the manual and the pump cleaning instructions are the same:
And then enter "WFS1071" Instructions for removing the filter are on page 14 of the user manual.
(Wth pictures)

Pump / Filter cleaning POWER OFF UNIT UNPLUGED:

Basically you open the lower panel by pushing down and pulling toward you at the top. Use something like a cake pan for catching water. Grasp the CIRCULAR filter and rotate it COUNTER CLOCKWISE until the water starts draining. WAIT until all the water possible drains. Then unscrew the filter and pull it out. Clean out any debris. Make sure to reach deep into the filter hole and CAREFULLY clean off the sensor if you can reach it and then reinstall the filter by rotating clockwise. Last steps install the lower panel and PLUG IN POWER.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,

How to set time

You need to match the marks on your timing belt. The two marks are at 12 o'clock. You should be able to view the mark by taking off the easiest cover, the one in front. You can turn the crankshaft to move it into position. You'll need a compression guage in the number one spark plur hole. Place the guage dial where you can see it while turning the crankshaft balancer hub. Turn it clockwise until you see compression building up on the guage. If you did not see compression build up, continue one more complete turn to achieve TDC for the number one cylinder. Remove the guage. Through the number one cylinder spark plug hole, insert a section of wooden dowel or plastic rod and slowly push it down until it reaches the top surface of the piston crown. With the dowel or rod in place, slowly rotate the crankshaft clockwise until the dowel or rod is pushed upward, stops, and then starts to move back down. At this point, rotate the crankshaft slightly counterclockwise until the dowel or rod has reached its upper most travel. At this point, the number one piston is at TDC.

Paper stuck in ignition

Go get a safety pin and curve the pointed end with a long nose pliers
enough to fit your ignition key. Then, straight it out enough for you
to move the curve end of the pin. Then insert the curve pointed end
to the ignition, until it take all the paper inside piece by piece. Pls
send your e mail and vote.
Another solution is to take the ignition key assembly off the case
and replace it with another.

Loading paper into a 1205-3 Victor calculator?

I just got the same calculator without a manual. Fold over one corner of the tape so it almost goes to the other edge of the paper, making a 45 degree angle. Insert the tip of the tape into the slot at the back of the calculator and push it ahead until the corner goes under the black plastic part. I had to push it ahead a little more until it was starting to come upward on the other side. Push the arrow button at the top left corner of the keypad to advance the tape.

Meade etx-80 sticking

Some (not all) versions have an end stop - it it just reaching that? The scope will rotate only aboit 3 complete turns between the 2 ends.

The 'correct' starting position is as follows: Place scope on tripod or table with control panel at the West. Unlock the declination lock (horizontal slew). Rotate scope anticlockwise until it hits the end stop, Then roate it back clockwise until scope is pointing North (should be about 3/8 of a turn, as the end stop is at South West). Then lock the declination, Set the tube horizontal and continue with the alignment process.

Autostar always thinks you have set the position like that. If you haven't, it will work OK until it tries to rotate past the point it won't go, then chaos results!
