I have a Liftmaster garage door opener and the garage door faces south. Normally the opener works great except at certain times on a sunny day.The sunlight is not directly hitting one of the sensors but the door will comedown as far as half way and then it will go back up and the lights will flash. If I go inside and use the button I can hold it down until the door is fully closed. However, sure is a pain to have to take the car out, go back into the garage, shut the door and then leave the h

My garage door opener will start to close then stop and go back to the open position. If I put pressure on the door as it is closing sometimes it will close all the way and sometimes it will return to the open position. Can you help me. Thanks


Sounds like the pressure sensor is being tripped - this is a safety feature on most makes in the last 10 years.Find the make/model of your device and it probably has some knobs on the main unit to adjust. For example, on the ... Vacuums

After a brief power outage my Marantec 4700 garage door opener has problems opening/closing. When opening it stops at the fully open position and the lights blink, when closing it automatically reverses just as it fully closes and then the lights start to blink again. I checked for obstructions and tried to reset the limits of travel per the manual, it still does the same thing. Any ideas on what to try next?


This is not a sensor issue, I have a similar problem, sensors work fine, garage door is still fully functional, all operations, including safety sensors work properly, just the overhead lights flash. I suspect there was damage to the power board due ... Vacuums

Sharp R-1480. Microwave would not start - jarred door, and it heated and worked. Replaced bottom of the 3 inter-lock door switches. Turns back on - all seems normal. No heat (it does overall sound louder). Thanks, Mark [email protected]


Hi Mark,It sounds like you have a magnetron problem now or at very least a rectifier that is shorted. The elevated sound level comes from one of those two components. But since you had a door switch problem I would lean toward ... Vacuums

Microwave starts on it's own as soon as the door is closed


That is a broken timing mechanism. If you have a unit that you turn the dial to set the time on that dial is malfunctioning. If that has a touch pad, most new units do, one of the Auto time buttons is sticking and you will need to replace the keypa ... Vacuums

I have a G.E 1.0 Microwave Model JES1039WF02, It has power on the panel but I see a message that says -F3- It will not start or do anything when the buttons are pressed. There is power running to it. The light inside turns on when the door opens. I looked through the owner's manual and there is no reference to this message on the troubleshooting section.


If there is no heating please do not switch on unless you have confirmed the fault. It is possible that the Magnetron is faulty, the temperature cut off is faulty or the main capacitor is short. It is also quite possible that insect can get ... Vacuums

My new H2O Mop Ultra (Danoz) seems to heat up ok then when the light switches to green and I start using it, the orange light comes back on as well as the green. Produces steam to start with but then it starts to spit water too and everything ends up wet. Any ideas on whats wrong or should I just send it back?


That is a major hardware fault, I have seen this numerous times with these H2O mop's... They seem to either work perfectly for a long while or have problems right off the bat. You definitely want to send this unit back and either get a refund or at ... Vacuums

Panasonic NN-SD776S microwave Start button stopped working. I know, the first thought is a bad door switch because "everyone knows a microwave should not turn on if the door is open." I am experienced with electronics, but even the timer won't start at all. Funny thing is, I had this exact model do this exact thing just over 2 years ago - troubleshot all the hardware until I was lost, finally bought a new one from Costco (June 4/08). And now 2 years later this one craps out - a 2 year timer

I have a vx550cc that keeps kicking in and out quickly, then shuts down for a few seconds and starts up kicking in and out again. There is lots of suction at all the outlets and sweeps. The dirt bucket has been emptied and the filter cleaned. Al the LED lights light up when the motor kicks out, then back to one green when it starts back up. This unit has worked great for four years with no problems.

I have just purchased two (2) Electrolux Nimble vacuum cleaners. Not one, but both, straight out of the box, the beater bars will not run. It turns on, select carpet, and lower the handle, the red light to check beater bar/or filter lights up. You can reset the light by unplugging the unit, then plugging it back in, but with same results. Now the kicker, if you take out the handle, select carpet, lower the body by the carry handle, it will run and operate correctly, however, as soon as you r

Miele S5000 (revolution 5000) vacuum cleaner - How do I open the casing? When the power button on the handle is pressed the green power-level lights on the handle light, but the motor sounds like it gives a little 'jump' but nothing more. The orange power light on the body also dims. I assume the motor or fan is jammed, but I can't open the body to find out. I've taken out to screws inside near either end of the handle, but to no apparent effect. I'm assuming the body is held together by plastic

My handle won't go back up after an extended vacuuming session during which I used the hand/broom/animal hair attachments several times, thus pulling the hose out/putting it back in, starting/ stopping, and suddenly no matter what I do short of forcing it (and even if I try forcing it a bit) I can't raise the handle to put it away.

After that the light will not light up on pressing the power button, unless I unplug it and plug it back in again. I have seen o
