Thanks for contacting ManageMyLife.com. Below are instructions to assist in resetting the opener.

  1. For a two (2) work light unit remove the light lens from the logic board side, (the side with the antenna) or for a single work light unit the logic board is at the back of the power head, it too has the antenna.
  2. Press and hold the learn button, located behind the light bulb on a two (2) work light unit, on a single work light unit the learn button will be located in the middle of the logic board on the back of the power head, until the LED next to the button goes out, all of the codes are now erased.
To reprogram the remotes
  1. Press and release the "learn" button.
  2. Press and hold the desired button on the remote.
  3. The light bulb on the power head will blink on, then off, the remote is now programmed.
  4. Repeat steps 1 thru 3 for all other remotes.
To reprogram the outside key pad

  2. At the outside key pad enter a unique 4 digit code.

If I have just erased all the code out of the power head, how is there any thing to reprogram my remote to? Don't I have to put a new code into the power head first??

Once the codes are cleared from the opener you would have to program the remotes and keypad to it again. To do that just follow the above steps.

Q:

why does the drain pan of my window a/c unit keep getting clogged with goo causing the water to drain into the room instead of outside?

A:

Green goo may look worse than it is, but I would want it gone also. The summer's heat and humidity are most likely responsible. While you wait for the expert answer, you may want to check a web site that I found. I also linked the owner's manual. The troubleshooting guide seems to partly cover this issue. Hope this helps!

Thanks Barbara H, I most likely don't have enough fall on the unit to clear the condensate fast enough. If I don't check the exterior drain hole and it gets slightly blocked, even though it is dripping, then water could puddle in the unit and goo ensues. I'll let you know in a week or so how it worked out.

A:

This type of problem is due to an algae build up that develops in the evaporator coil, which is normal. To prevent this from happening, the evaporator needs to be cleaned with a coil cleaner. It will clean out the algae that has developed and prevent new growth for awhile. This type of deep cleaning should be done by a technician that will have the proper type of coil cleaner. I'm listing a site you can access, to have a tech come out. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services .

Thanks Scott D. I have cleaned and remounted the unit to provide greater fall and better drainage. If I continue to have problems I will give your technician a call. For what it's worth to the people who design these units: some space under the condenser coils would drastically improve drainage. In this unit the coils sit directly on the bottom of the pan and a knife blade thickness gap from the rear shroud. A few dead mosquitoes could plug the drain. I recommend more space under and behind the condenser to allow greater flow, a feature I will consider when replacing this unit. Also in the FWIW department: In this unit the drain channel from the evaporator side around the fan housing to the condenser side is very narrow. Again, it takes very little debris to clog it up. I recommend a larger drain capacity.

Q:

How can I speed up my computer?

A:

I looked up a Dimension 5150 and it seems that the basic package was a Pentium 4 with 512mb operating Windows XP. 512 I would consider on the low end but this computer should surf the internet and not feel like its freezing up with these specs. I recommend you first perform these basic steps found here . I pulled if from Microsoft's site and it all looks like something you can do now minus the last one called Readyboost.

If your computer still feels sluggish, try running an antispyware program. McAfee makes one but I am not sure if you have it. Check your antivirus to see if it has been updating and current and get an anti spyware tool as well.

The last bit of advice is I notice that people accumulate a lot of programs as they keep using their computers. I look at the taskbar on the bottom right and see 12 icons of programs running taking up resources that aren't being used. If you do not need your weather program or chat program or whatever else you could have up, go to it's configuration and turn off the autostart feature.

If you can add more memory to your computer, that would help. A lot of today's software takes up a load of memory and that can slow down any computer, whether you have games, photos, etc. I have 1 GB and am thinking about adding another 1 GB. A good cleaner program, like ccleaner (free from http://www.ccleaner.com/) will also clean out your temp files - BUT it will also clean out your browsing history and any web site log-in names/passwords that you use (if you stayed logged in) so you might want to opt to keep those when you run it, depends on your personal preference. And as suggested by the expert - definitely defrag if you don't - I defrag weekly . If you've never done it, the first time can take a long time, but it will be worth it. Good luck!
