Hi Anonymous, you could have a faulty sending unit or guage, there could be a problem with your wiring. On models with the fuel gauge posing as a left hand fuel cap the gauge is a press fit do not try to unscrew it, simply ample force lift up in a rocking motion to remove gauge. Disconnect wires to the gauge and with a set of positive and negative jumpers from the battery connect the positive jumper and flash the negative, gauge should peg full, if not replace gauge. With a test light check for power to the sending unit, then remove the sending unit and manually operate the float arm slowly with the correct wiring hooked up to the fuel gauge and sending unit and the ignition on, the gauge should respond accordingly if not replace the float arm assembly.

My wife has a 2009 Softtail Delux. When we fill the gas tank and then ride it, gas runs out aroung gas cap onto tank and onto rider. I have tried not to fill it all the way and it still does this. It seems...

I don't know if there's a recall on this but it sounds like your gas cap is not screwing all the way down to get a seal. There are right side and left side caps on her bike. The right side is the vent cap. Someone may have put a vented left side cap on her bike. Gas cap swaps or thefts are common because there's no way to secure them. Don't ever buy a nice set of billet caps as they might not be on your bike when you leave it unattended the first time.

Good Luck

I need to refill radiator on a 2007 suzuki boulevard c50 how?

To access the radiator cap, remove the seats,then the bolt at the rear of the gas tank. You should now be able to slide the entire tank and dash back enough to expose the cap on the left side of the frame. When replacing the tank, be careful not to knock loose the rubber buffers that slide into grooves on either side of the frame.

Pop the top miele t9820 dryer gas

Open the door, at the top of the recessed door opening you will see two round plastic caps. Remove these and you will see screw behind that you have to remove. Some models the caps are on the right and left hand sides. Slide the top towards the back after removing screws and the top will lift off. Good Luck, Appliance Specialists

I am waiting for circuit board part to be delivered. I have tried to disconnect wires from behind remote control (didnt work). Is there any other way to jump start hot water until my part arrives?

If you open the cover and look at the PCB ther're four capacitors on the left hand side of the board - If the tops of thos caps are slightly raised...ther're blown - you'll have to replace them to get the unit to work.

Parts are available at radio shack or Allied Electronics - or you could find a supplier in your area.

To replace the caps 1)Unplug/remove A/C power. 2)Label and remove all electrical connections to the PCB and remove the PCB from the water heater unit. 3)With the PCB sitting on a flat surface...rotate PCB until the single silver screw is in the top left corner (the caps in question should be in the mid portion of the PCB and on the lefthand side facing the board. 4)Remove the screw from the top left corner...firmly hold the plastic case containing the PCB and gently start bending the plastic case back, until the silicone protectant starts to separate from the plastic on all four sides. Once you have the silicone separated the PCB should pop out of place with some gentle nudging. 5)Remove the protectant from around the caps and remove from the associated area on the back as well. 6) De-solder and replace caps (2 ea/670X25V and 2 ea./220X35V) - available at electronics supplier.
