Why would you give a guy a rating for being straight and honest with you. Your amp is fried and your respond as if it is his fault by giving him a non helpful rating. It is as if you are making him responsible for you frying your amp, I support his diagnosis and I have been designing and repairing them for over 20 years. I expect you to lash out and give me a bad rating also.

My amp and system works fine with the car on acc but when the car is running , the amp started smoking and it goes into protect mode


Your amp is trying to make up for the lack of available voltage that is being used by your car and to a maintain output it will then start to draw more current to accomodate the drop. The formula that shows the proportions of Voltage (Electricity) and Amperage (Intensity) to Watts (Power). It looks like this P=IxE So if your amp is 1400watts and it's getting 14 volts it will take 100 amps to power it (given the amp is 100% efficient, which no amps are) so when you turn on your AC that puts a load on your motor and alternator too for the fan and the compressor slows down your alternator making the voltage drop down to 10 volts with everything full blast. That means you amp is now pulling 140 amps of current to make up for the voltage drop, Your wire that is going to the amp is probably getting pretty warm at that time also unless you have 4 ga or larger. So when the voltage gets too low the amp will turn off and go into protect mode to keep the current in the rails from getting the amp so hot it will eventually cook the components inside of it. You will be looking for a higher output alternator just like everyone else who has high powered amps.

My dryer starts the first time with no problem, but after about an hour it starts to make a kind of buzzing sound. If I don't shut it off at this point it shuts itself off after another minute or two....


You are absolutely correct that the motor is the problem and needs to be replaced. The motor is overheating and its thermal overload protector trips off causing the dryer to shut down. Thermal overload protector resets and allows the motor to run again only when it has cooled down. It is the reason why the dryer is not turning on immediately after it shuts off. Replacing the motor will definitely solve the problem.

My Hitachi EC12 builds pressure, shuts off, then air escapes


I have the same compressor with the same problem. I have temporarily eliminated the thermal reset with a piece of 12 gauge hard wire and it runs just fine. However, I do want to replace it before the warm weather come to the north. I tested the draw at 15.5 amps and the reset was a 17 amp. I am told by someone with superior electrical background that I need to install a 20 amp thermal reset in it's place. I have found that mine runs best when plugged directly into a 20 amp circuit and when using an extention cord I have a 10 guage cord that will carry the load needed to run the EC12. I have also changed to 100% synthetic oil.

Sony X-Plode amplifier. NOT working


It is possible if the model amp you have is bridgable to 1 channel. Usually when you bridge an amp you will need to hook one wire to the positive side of one channel and the negative side to the other. You will need to consult you user manual for the amp or get the manual from the sony website for instructions on how to bridge the amp or if the amp is even bridgable.

Inspiron 1100--fan has recently started running often & long. Computer gets very warm to the touch & runs very slowly. Shuts down randomly--during virus scans, disk clean ups, etc


sounds like the heat exchanger is clogged. Try using canned air blowing in both the air intake and exhaust to unclog the heatsink and also make sure the system has the most current BIOS version.

Power acoustiks amp wont get off protection mode? how do i reset it? please help me i tried everything.


Hello nfox1987,

First you need to determine if the amp is defective or if something else is causing it to go into protection, most often a short in the sub or amp wiring.

Disconnect the sub(s) from the speaker output terminals and the RCA inputs from the head unit, and test if the amp powers up OK. If it does, the problem is in the sub(s) wiring or voice coils, or in the RCA inputs to the amp. Reconnect each one-at-a-time to determine exactly where the short is and repair or replace the defective wiring or unit. If it doesn't power up with the inputs and sub(s) disconnected, the amp itself is most likely defective.

Hope this helps.
