Check around and under the rubber front gasket for any trapped items,
if flooding happens open the bottom access panel (3 screws on bottom front) and look for leakage at that time , there is a access door safety switch to the top right that has to be closed to let the unit run.
blow some powder in the bottom to show the wet spots and/or to trace when they happen again.

Makita battery wont keep charge

Given the problems with Makita Li-ion batteries there are 2 likely reasons, you have a faulty charger or both batteries are faulty, the best option is to find another charger to try your batteries on and see if they charge, depending on the age of the drill you may be able to get the batteries or charger replaced by Makita, a lot of them have been replaced out of the warranty period because they are known to fail prematurely, take the faulty item back to the place of purchase with you invoice and put the pressure on for replacement

Speed Queen washing machine pump, part no 27041,

The impeller shaft has a water seal. This seal wares out after a period of time. The hole allows water leaking through the seal to escape. There is no known repair to this problem except replacing with a new pump. Trying to block up the hole is a waste of time.

Should the water supply be isolated when the appliance is not in use

Only if it is not going to be used for extended periods of time.
Otherwise it is safe to leave it connected and the supply ON

Going on holidays would be a reason to turn it off

As a side note if you are going away for a period of time and dont have automated water systems etc then take a water reading and comopare it when you get back and if there is a difference then you might have a leak somewhere eg. toilet, faucet etc.

Calculator calculated (solving for FV) 5 N, 10 I/YR, -2000 PMT, FV= 10,168.06 But the answer should be 12,210.20 Help? :(

This is happening because your calculator is converting the 10% interest figure into a monthly amount (ie 0.833333%), but it isn't changing the number of periods or the periodic payment into monthly equivalents. In both cases, it is assuming that payments are made at the end of each period.

So the figure of 10,168.06 is arrived at as follows:
end of period 1: 2,000.00
end of period 2: 2,000 x 1.00833333 + 2,000 = 4,016.67
end of period 3: 4,016.67 x 1.00833333 + 2,000 = 6,050.14
end of period 4: 6,050.14 x 1.00833333 + 2,000 = 8,100.56
end of period 5: 8,100.56 x 1.00833333 + 2,000 = 10,168.06

whereas the figure of 12,210.20 is arrived at as follows:
end of period 1: 2,000.00
end of period 2: 2,000 x 1.1 + 2,000 = 4,200.00
end of period 3: 4,200 x 1.1 + 2,000 = 6,620.00
end of period 4: 6,620 x 1.1 + 2,000 = 9,282.00
end of period 5: 9,282 x 1.1 + 2,000 = 12,210.20

You will need to find out from your user manual how to stop this from happening, so that all the numbers remain as annual figures. It will involve setting the number of payments per year [P/YR] to 1 instead of 12.

Gas leak no solution refuse to pay rx 6000 when it is in the warranty period t

Actually, all air conditioners having compressor warranty for 5 yeas and comprehensive warranty for one year only. If your a/c under gas leak during comprehensive warranty period, you have rights to ask the manufacturer/supplier to do free gas charging. Check your warranty details and date of purchase.

I've A Breville 800 esxl espresso machine.when making an espressothe machine starts leaking from the external slots outside coffee filter holder.what is the cause of it?

Breville brew head seals are rather difficult to locate, but I personally stock them for ESP8XL & 800ESXL machines and sell them at a reasonable cost. I sell lots of new and used parts for various coffee machines, but specialize in Krups and some Breville. If interested in purchasing a Breville brew head seal, contact me at [email protected] and I'll make arrangements. I accept Paypal to make the transaction safe and secure for us both.

My tv picture is light and hard to see and will periodically shut off.its only abput 5 yrs old/

For a Philips LCD TV, that's at least two years longer than they typically last. The most common problem with Philps TVs is the power supply board, which could cause the TV to shut-down by itself. The picture being too-light could happen for several reasons. In general, a repair shop needs to figure out what's wrong.

Maytab Neptune FL washer

Hello ortizai and friends
If the washer stops here are some reasons why this may happen.
The water lines have screens that can become clogged by accumulating debris in the water,
And then the machine will automatically shut down. And if its not completely blocked it will shut down intermittently!

1. Plug cord into live electrical outlet.
2. Check fuse or reset circuit breaker.
3.Close door firmly and push the Start/Pause pad to start the washer.
For your safety, the washer will not tumble or spin unless the door is
4 This may be a pause or soak period in the cycle.
Wait briefly and it may start.
5. Check screens on inlet hoses at the faucets for obstructions.
Clean screens periodically.
May be on hose ends too,and will be in the water inlets of the washer!!!!!!!!!!

Let me know who gets started, since there are multiple people with this problem.
Please remember to leave a rating
I'm trying to figure out more ideas and will forward them soon.

Water leak on occasion front load washer purchased around 2002/03

You need to remove the kick panel (under the front door). There are two screws at the very bottom of the kick panel, one in each corner.
This will give you visibility to see where the leak is coming from.
On the right hand side is the drain pump. The black hose goes from the pump,out the rear and into your drain pipe. It is secured by a clamp and is one possible source of leak.
If that connection is dry, look underneath the tub where the two parts, front and back of drum, come together. there is an o ring sealing the two sections and this is another source of water leak. (major problem is this is leaking)
Failing this you will just have to trace the source of the leak. You may have to take off the top of the washer to check the water inlet hoses which run on the top of the machine but would still show as a leak under the machine. Good luck.
