Hi,

You are absolutely thinking correctly....the humidifier should be running when ever the blower is running and the humidistat is not satisfied...in fact in some cases I have advised people even turn the fan switch on to run the blower longer to get more humidity in the air if needed....some furnaces do not have long enough run times to get enough water evaporated...

You have the idea of how it needs to go, so you should just go ahead and wire it up that way and you'll be glad you did!! You can get a relay for a few bucks and have a much better working system...

Can a large maglite be repaired or parts replaced when the batteries corrode in the chamber?


Try spraying WD40 or similar penetrant on battery terminals and cleaning with wire wool! You might be lucky!

Detached black wire from heating element


You pulled the wire out of the terminal. You need a crimp tool and a terminal of the proper size to crimp the wire back into a terminal. Not hard to do if you have the proper equipment.

Do not solder a wire to a crimp terminal!

Anyone know a good LED flashlight for camping?


you dont have to spend alot of money on led flashlights. they range from 1$ to well over 100$, In my experience and back ground. I prefer to keep several less costly ones than to spend way to much money on high dollar lights. befofe led i cant count how many mag lights i purchased or how many were lost, borrowed or stolen it depends on what your looking for and what options you want. i like to have several 1 to 2$ ones. and some that have features like position switch. for 1 led .3led or all led lamps working. or lights that have a spot light on the end and cluster leds on the side for area lighting, in my personal opinion if your going to hang on to it you cant beat a 4 or 5 D size mag light. take in to consideration they have led models now and also led conv. kits available for ones that have bulbs in them. but note you cannot focus your beam as wellwith led on mag lights. any way the main problem i sure you and any one who has owned small aluminum led flshlights has delt with the flickering hiting them and unscrewing the ends twisting back and forth to get the light to come back when you need it most. easy cure aluminum sucks as an electrical conductor. dielectric grease is your best friend. anywhere you have any connections such as the threads on the alum. flashlights. Also very important general purpose elect. conn. ac or dc and absoloutly if you own a boat please remember any elect. conn. and most important when you connect different types metals copper, lead,brass alluminum,tin galvanize,stainless,gold they all will fail lead to corrosion and or lose conductivity.and lead to damaging or ruining minor or major equipt. remember if your repairing boat wiring for instance and possibly replacing damaged equipt. having correct guage wire correct fuses for what amperage a curcuit or piece of equipt. needs. If you have corrosion at the end of your wire terminals and your fuses and fuse blocks. it will fail......so if its a flshight , acar or boat motor .airplane ect battery, if it conducts electricity clean it ,use dielectric, not wheel grease dielectric grease it conducts electricity. and try this on your inexpensive aluminium led lights. dollar store led flashlights work fine or any where you see them on sale. if they come with batterys most likely dispose of them. dont skimp on batterys. all quality batterys have a shelf life of several years. on sale aa and aaa i look for duracells or equivelent in 24,36 or 48 packs. i allways have some with me and share them with people in need. and thats another reason i keep a few cheap flashlights with me . even when i riding my HD Road King a simple flashight given to someone on the side of the road can be the gift at tjhat time that they will never forget. i apoligize for rambling . but im not typing im just talking . the typing is being prefom by dear friend xxxxxxxx I think I am .more than a dear friend and if you keep your hands and mouth off of me for a little while. I would have been done much sooner. and you might no what I actually typed. HAPPY HOLIDAYS everyone from Liz and Rick or as he likes call me LIck IT Ziggy

My 92 explorer has no spark


Hi, here are some tests you can do to diagnose the problem. Please let me know if you have questions.

First, use a voltmeter or 12 volt test light to check for power on the red wire going to pin 8 of the ignition control module when the key is on. The module is in the left front corner of the engine compartment.

jturcotte_2441.gif
jturcotte_2440.gif

If there is no power, the problem is the ignition switch or EEC relay. If there is power, next, check the ignition coil as listed below.

IGNITION COIL TESTINGPrimary and Secondary Circuit Tests
  1. Turn the ignition switch OFF , disconnect the battery, then detach the wiring harness connector from the ignition coil to be tested.
  2. Check for dirt, corrosion or damage on the terminals.

PRIMARY RESISTANCE
  1. Use an ohmmeter to measure the resistance between the following terminals on the ignition coil, and note the resistance:

Except 2.3L, 2.5L and 5.0L engines


B+ to Coil 1 B+ to Coil 2 B+ to Coil 3
The resistance between all of these terminals should have been between 0.3-1.0 ohms. If the resistance was more or less than this value, the coil should be replaced with a new one.

SECONDARY RESISTANCE


jturcotte_2439.gif

Fig. Fig. 1: Engine ignition coil harness connections-3.0L and 4.0L engines

  1. Measure, using the ohmmeter, and note the resistance between each corresponding coil terminal and the two spark plug wire towers on the ignition coil. The coil terminals and plug wires towers are grouped as follows:
Except 2.3L, 2.5L and 5.0L engines

Terminal 3 (coil 1)-spark plugs 1 and 5 Terminal 2 (coil 3)-spark plugs 2 and 6 Terminal 1 (coil 2)-spark plugs 3 and 4

If the coils test good, move on the the crankshaft sensor.
Using a DVOM set to the DC scale to monitor less than 5 volts, measure the voltage between the sensor Cylinder Identification (CID) terminal and ground by backprobing the sensor connector. If the connector cannot be backprobed, fabricate or purchase a test harness. The sensor is okay if the voltage reading varies more than 0.1 volt with the engine running at varying RPM. (check both the blue and gray wires at the ignition module with the engine cranking.)

If there is power and both the coils and sensor check good, replace the ignition control module.

My mag lite led xl100 will not turn on, have fresh batteries installed


take the bottom piece off, remove the last battery and put a coating of petroleum jelly on the threads of the tube. Then take the bottom piece and run it all the way in and back off and back in 2 or 3 times. Then put a little more petroleum jelly on the threads and put the battery back in and the bottom piece. This should do it.
