I've spent almost as much time on the internet today looking up reasons why one appliance or machine isn't working right than I have actually doing things.
I can understand when an older thing begins to sputter, but it's more frustrating when a new thing won't do what it's supposed to do.
For instance I started cutting grass today and the mower kept slowing down and then stopping. After some research, it could just be that the grass is too long and too thick for the power of the mower. It also could be the carburator or the air filter or the gas cap on too tight or too loose. It's electic start so it can't be the spark plug.
Then the most frustrating is the two month old Keurig coffee maker. It just will not make two cups in a row without having to turn the power off and pull the plug. We have to pull the plug. After reading scores of reviews I've learned others have the same issue. It seems the water hose must get air in it after one cup and then will not pump water into the chamber for the second cup. Why unplugging makes this work again I do not know.
One funny suggestion for stopping this problem was to leave the machine on and then lift the water reservoir up and inch or two and then slam it back into position hard and fast. Ha. We'll give this a try in the morning since more than one reviewer found this gets the water pump going again.
