General Discussion Area / Tumble drier failure
« on: 02 April 2018, 15:51:43 »
I shouldn't grumble, we must have had it 15 -20 years, but our Creda has just packed up. Model is Simplicity T620CW. It is, as it says on the tin, Simplicity to operate.
Symptoms are:
When On/Off push button selected On, with timer selected to anywhere but zero, (ie motor should run), the starter relay operates with no rotation of drum, and the main cct breaker in the house consumer unit trips.
When On/Off push button selected On, with timer at zero, (ie no demand to rotate) the starter relay operates but does not trip the house cct breaker. I have checked the supply lead for shorts which is OK.
Any electrickery experts with any ideas? I'm thinking possibly a short in the motor. :-\ :-\ :-\

General Car Chat / Where can I get...
« on: 24 March 2018, 19:21:59 »
5w-20 or 5w-30 at a reasonable price, other than Halfords on TC (which I have)? Even with TC it is going to be pricey from them. :-\ :-\ :-\

General Discussion Area / Viessmann Boiler pcb failure
« on: 19 March 2018, 20:00:33 »
Typical, boiler failed to start yesterday AM, on of the coldest days of the year! Unfortunately no fault codes, just no flame indicator. Last fault code from a previous temporary failure a while ago suggested a faulty ignition electrode, so changed that today with no luck. Very helpful guy at Viessmann talked me through the trouble shooting - the manual is 'somewhat tricky' to follow - to deduce it is the pcb, (at 360 and change) >:( However it is 9 years old, and he said that changing both electrodes was sensible at that age anyway. Bloody annoying as it is almost certainly one small twopenny item that's failed on the board, which is impossible for me to test. New board arrives tomorrow on overnight delivery.
Mrs S not pleased at having to rely on fan heaters and a gas fire.

For any Islay malt drinkers, Lidl have Ben Bracken at under 18, just trying my first dram, it is one of the peatier ones, probably from one of the southern distilleries, I love it. :y

General Discussion Area / Newspaper headline.
« on: 05 March 2018, 19:33:48 »
I did like the headline from one of the newspapers last week, I think it was probably the Sun, referring to the Max Mosley case.

"The liar, the 'swish', and the whore probe."

Very clever. ;D ;D ;D

General Discussion Area / Plusnet mobile
« on: 09 February 2018, 16:52:31 »
I get a lousy signal at home, 1 or 0 bars, plusnet do not support wifi calling, or supply a booster, although the EE carrier does if signed up with them. Any ideas how to boost my signal? On iPhone5s

General Discussion Area / Mechanical offspring
« on: 29 January 2018, 19:01:21 »
After reading Terry's post about his Grandson declaring that 'Grandpa would mend it.' I got to wondering, how many of you have offspring that turn their hand to car repairs or DIY generally? My son is very good with cars and DIY.  :y Daughter is capable but earns too much so pays others. :(

Omega Electrical and Audio Help / Strange result
« on: 27 January 2018, 15:51:47 »
As mentioned I got a replacement ignition switch for the 3.2, a genuine OE Febi part with the GM logo still visible. the first thing I noticed when I reconnected the battery after fitting the switch was that the radio came straight on, with ignition off, and I did not need to recode the radio??? The battery had been disconnected for a week. I also got a warning tone when the door was opened with key removed although there was nothing switched on or indicators selected. I now have to physically switch the radio off when exiting the car, as it does not go off with the ignition. As a result, I refitted the old switch again to see if it was the same, and it is, radio remains on with key removed unless switched off, although the warning sound has gone with the door open.
Secondly I was unable to synch either key to the new switch, and I am also unable to synch them back to the old switch, now back in. ??? ??? ???
I also have a spanner light on (haven't checked the codes) but I suspect it didn't like me messing with the switch.
Any ideas?

Omega General Help / ignition starter switch
« on: 26 January 2018, 22:26:04 »
Should anyone require a new ignition starter switch, I can recommend http://myworld.ebay.co.uk/aceparts_uk from whom I have now had two. One for the late lamented TD, and one this week for the 3.2. In each case the switch received has been genuine Febi with the GM logo partially erased. :y
