I use my ups to run a fan, a lite, and my computer while I shut it down. An ups is only as good as it's battery. The larger the ups and it's battery, the more watts you can use. The battery will determine how many watthours you get. Some people will put a car battery to an ups. The ups may overcharge the battery and dry it out. The battery may be too much for the ups charging circuit and burn it out, dead ups. I put a 12 volt computer fan on my ups to keep it from overheating, another problem that comes up when you overuse an ups. Where I am, you have to deal with a power company that is not reliable, so I go the extra mile to get more comfort when the power is out.

Carrier troubleshooting furnace


If the thermostat isn't selected for "FAN" then the relay is stuck. In heat mode the thermostat opens the gas valve and starts the igniter and the induction motor. If the induction fan isn't running, the flame will stop.

My Tn111 timer is running hot with just a fan running


TN111 timer should not be hot.
All electrical devices generate heat, but the clock motor inside TN series is around 3Watts, and should put off same heat as 3 watt light bulb.
This timer is rated for inductive loads like a fan, up to 1/3 HP (horsepower). Some timers are incandescent only and are not rated for fans or HP loads.
1) Try plugging timer into different outlet and to different Load (light, fan)
2) Test outlet with cheap circuit analyzer from home center to make sure outlet is wired correctly.
3) This line of timers has limited 1 year warranty

Acer aspire 1640


start up the computer and while its running, hold a flash light to the screen. If you can see any graphics on the screen, your lcd converter burned out. If you can seen nothing, its possible that the back light lamp burned out and the best option would be to replace the screen altogether

Your scan lamp is going bad. It is the flourecent type lamp that lights up under the glass. You can try making a copy with the top cover open and watch it. You will see it flickering before the code comes up.

Fluorescent dimmir


The dimmer you purchase needs to be compatable with the ballasts of the C.F. light. A compact flourescent potlight has a ballast, if your replacing incandescent bulbs with compact flourecent lamps
you still need a flourescent dimmer. Remember a ballast is like a transformer! If you compact flourecent fixture has a ballast by Lutron. then you need a lutron dimmer as there ballasts are not officially compatable with other dimmers, allthough I've seen them work. My advise is buy Pass & Seymour (Legrand) or Leviton.

Use of computer ups for lighting purpose


Hi,

To your concern of using a computer type UPS to power other devices:
  • If the light is incandescent type, yes;
  • If the light is florescent type, depends on the design. Some yes, some no. If the ballast is electronic, yes; if the ballast is inductive, no;
  • on the fan, no.
To my knowledge, most low-end commercial UPS produces a square wave. Only high end (expensive) models produces true Sine wave.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.
