Question about FixYa Computers & Internet

1 Answer

Why did my Fixya question disappear after someone answered it?

I asked a question, got a notification that it was answered. Looked at the answer, went to leave a comment, and it said page was not found. Its not even listed under my questions that Ive asked. So I reposted it, hoping the person that answered it before sees it again

Here is your posting history. If you asked a question and someone answered it, it should be there unless it was flagged, but that sounds unlikely.

If you answered a question and it disappeared, that is because the OP deleted it, and that happens a lot.

    I guess someone flagged it. I asked it again and got a smart response from a guy about burning down my house. Thank you

    Well David has been around for a long time. His answer is correct. 220volts and all those amps can certainly cause a fire. Rather than Sears, try the appliance spares suppliers. The other I would do is disconnect the broil element, but do it from the control board, not from the element itself.

SOURCE: i cant figure out how to ask questions or comment

Provided you don't get stuck with the Twitter Is Over Capacity Whale that I've been seeing lately, there are two ways to ask questions of people directly, 'private' and 'private-plus-friends':

  1. Type "d USERNAME" before your tweet to send a direct message to a particular user. Only that user will see the message.
  2. Put "@USERNAME" at the beginning of your tweet to send a reply to a particular user. That user, your followers and that user's followers will all be able to see the tweet, but it won't appear on the public timeline.
When you send that message with D or @, then the user will get your question even if you are not being followed.

I hope that helps.

SOURCE: fixya makes it very hard to ask a simple question!

Here are some tips:
1. Locate the casting numbers on the block. This can be either behind the distributor on the engine, or near the starter. If you have to, use the wire brush and degreaser to clean the engine and see the number easier.
2. Note the first letter in the casting number. It's a letter to designate the year of manufacture of the part.

B - 1950s
C - 1960s
D - 1970s
E - 1980s
3. Note the second number in the casting number. This is for the last digit in the year. For example, a casting number starting with B8 was manufactured in 1958.
4. Note the third letter in the casting number. This is the model design of the vehicle.

A - Generic full-size ford
C - 1966 to 1975 Remanufactured part
D - Ford Falcon
E - Ford truck
F - Foreign market or Trans Am racing engine
G - '61 to '67 Comet or '68 to '76 Montego
H - '66 to '82 heavy truck or Holman Moody high performance parts
J - Industrial Ford model
L - Lincoln
M - Mercury
O - '67 to '76 Ford Torino and all Ford Fairlane
S - Ford Thunderbird
T - Truck
U - Econoline van
V - Lincoln
W - Mercury Cougar
Y - '62 to '72 Meteor (Canada model) and '75 to '81 Bobcat
Z - Mustang
6 - Pantera
5. Note the fourth letter in the casting number. If you're looking at a complete engine, it should be an "E."
6. Note the next four digits in the casting number, generally after a hyphen or space. This is the generic part number for the engine. This number should be between 6000 and 6898 for an engine base assembly.
7. Note the last letter in the number. This is the engineering version of the part, or the design change.

Good luck.

I asked a question about Hotpoint self cleaning oven but I don't know where to look for answer

If someone has answered it, two things happen.

You get an email notification to the account you logged on with.

You will see a red '1' at the top of the page where the Bell icon is. Click on the Bell and a box drops down with info.

Self cleaning oven programs are a pain. They burn out elements and very often after the cycle, the door won't open.

If the oven isn't heating up now, it has burnt out the elements and they need replacing.

If the door won't open, try flipping the breaker for 30 seconds.

i found your question. Flip the breaker to reset.

I started the self cleaning oven but because of breathing issues, I shut it off after running about 45-60 minutes. Light is blinking off and on then stops then blinks again. What should I do?

Finally, if you get an answer, and to want to reply, click COMMENT under their post.

Jeez I am not asking about cars, it is a shampooer for the carpets, hoover dual powermac

Look at your posting history. You posted it to the wrong category, more than and then added irrelevant bits of information that are separated by nearly and hour. To get good answers, you have to ask good questions in the correct category. This isn't a chat room, all your posts do not get linked together.

Make one post to the correct category, and make that one post detailed about what you have, make, model and what went wrong with it, and what you have tried to get it working. Then and only then will you get good answers.

For any followup comments, click COMMENT to the person you are talking to, DON'T start a new post. The person you are replying to will get a notification.

Or, just take it to a Hoover Service Centre.

Where do I get my answer?

You get a notification via email and a notification on the page, top right at the 'BELL'. The answer comes below your question as here illustrates. In your case, I think you have asked a question that is so vague, no one will answer. You asked the same question twice. I will go and look closer and advise.

What you advised does not work on the webside

If you want help, tell me what website you're trying to buy from!!!!!!
THIS ISN'T THE PSYCHIC HOTLINE! I can't guess what website you're having a problem with, there are tens of thousands of places to buy things on the internet

Put the website in a comment to this answer, otherwise I'll never find it.

You're just very very lucky I found this message, there are hundreds of people that answer questions here and thousands that ask. I only have connections to questions I have answered by someone leaving a comment on that specific answer. A new question like you've done here has no connection back to me so I could have easily missed it!
(anybody can answer questions here and nobody gets paid except the website owners)

How long does this take for an answer? is it on my email?

Hi Lorraine:
I'm not sure what you're asking about.
If you've posted a question on FIXYA and someone out there thinks they may be able to help, they will post an answer.
You will then get an e-mail telling you that there has been a response.
If you click on "view entire thread" it will link back to Fixya and you can see your question, the answer, and maybe even some comments.
If you want additional info regarding the reply, enter it as a COMMENT. That way the FIXYA helper will get a notification.
Hope this helps.

I was just chatting and after I commented on the session went back to look at the chat and it was gone. How can get the chat back so I can review the answers?

You should be able to find it in the "My Fixya" link located near the top of the page and look for recent questions asked by you or my questions.

Hope this helps! Please rate my answer :) Thanks!

When can I expect to receive an answer to my question concerning my HP Officejet 6310 All-In-One? The question was sent 8.03.2011. at 11.15 p.m.(Local Danish time) Regards Jesper Innes

It depends on the type of question you've posted. If it was a premium question and you've paid for the same then hopefully you might have received it on the same day you've posted. Usually, a premium question will be answered within an hour. If I am not wrong, it must be a premium question. If you have problem finding the answer, login to, click the "My FixYa" on the upper top corner of the page, click "My Activity" and then click your problem related to your printer and check for the answer.

Actually, if a user receives answers or comments, an email regarding the comment/answer is sent to the user's email address as a notification. Check your email address and see whether you've got any notification about the problem you've posted or not.

Also, at the time when you login to your fixya account, you will see a ribbon with "View " or similar button will be displayed on the top of the page, if you find this, simply click it and you'll be directed to the page.

Let me know if you need further help.

Good Luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.
