I have a Remington straightener out of no where it stopped working just yesterday it was working fine it wont turn on at all I barley just got it like a week ago idk what to do ? Any help ?

Anything that heat has a safety device inside that is like a fuse called a thermal cutoff. It prevents fires. (meltdowns etc). It is near impossible in this throwaway society to find an electronics technician, and it would be too expensive to have them repair it anyways. You can choose to repair it yourself, or find a family member etc. You just have to buy another thermal cutoff look closely at the old one to see the temperature rating. The new one has to be crimped on. The crimp can't have any plastic on it. Or you can just buy another straightener... it may be cheaper and safer. Maybe buy one not made in China :)

Need to change front wheel bearing

Hub and Bearing Removal & Installation NOTE: The removal and installation of the wheel bearing and hub from the steering knuckle is only to be done with the steering knuckle removed from the vehicle
To Remove:
  1. Remove the steering knuckle and hub and bearing assembly.
  2. Remove a wheel lug stud from the hub flange using a C-clamp and Adapter Tool 4150A or equivalent.
  3. Rotate the hub to align the removed lug stud with the notch in the bearing retainer plate. Use a proper C-clamp and adapter tool to press out one of the lug studs 7922eg64.gif

    Rotate the hub in order to remove the lug stud 7922eg65.gif

  4. Rotate the hub so the stud hole is facing away from the brake caliper's lower rail on the steering knuckle.
  5. Install ½ of a Bearing Splitter Tool 1130 or equivalent between the hub and the bearing retainer plate. The threaded hole in this ½ is to be aligned with the caliper rail on the steering knuckle.
  6. Install the remaining pieces of the bearing splitter on the steering knuckle. Hand-tighten the nuts to hold the splitter in place on the knuckle. Proper installation of the bearing splitter 7922eg66.gif

  7. When the bearing splitter is installed, be sure the 3 bolts attaching the bearing retainer plate to the knuckle are contacting the bearing splitter. The bearing retainer plate should not support the knuckle or contact the splitter.
  8. Place the steering knuckle in a hydraulic press, supported by the bearing splitter. Properly support the steering knuckle for hub and bearing removal 7922eg67.gif

  9. Position a driver on the small end of the hub. Using the press, remove the hub from the wheel bearing. The outer bearing race will come out of the wheel bearing when the hub is pressed out of the bearing.
  10. Remove the bearing splitter tool from the knuckle.
  11. Place the knuckle in a press supported by the press block. The blocks must not obstruct the bore in the steering knuckle so the wheel bearing can be pressed out of the knuckle. Place a driver on the outer race of the wheel bearing, and then press the bearing out of the knuckle.
  12. Install the bearing splitter on the hub. The splitter is to be installed on the hub so it is between the flange of the hub and the bearing race on the hub. Place the hub, bearing race and splitter in a press. Use a driver to press the hub out of the bearing race.
To Install:
  1. Use clean, dry cloth to wipe and grease or dirt from the bore of the steering knuckle.
  2. Clean the rust preventative from the replacement wheel bearing using a clean, dry towel.
  3. Place the new wheel bearing into the bore of the steering knuckle. Be sure the bearing is placed squarely into the bore. Place the knuckle in a press with a receiver tool, C-4698-2 or equivalent supporting the steering knuckle. Place a driver tool on the outer race of the wheel bearing. Press the wheel bearing into the steering knuckle until it is fully bottomed in the bore of the steering knuckle. NOTE: Only the original or original equipment replacement bolts should be used to mounting the bearing retainer to the knuckle. If a bolt requires replacement when installing the bearing retainer plate, be sure to get the proper type of replacement.
  4. Install the bearing retainer plate on the steering knuckle. Install the 3 bearing retainer mounting bolts. Torque the bolts to 21 ft-lbs (28 Nm).
  5. Install the removed wheel lug stud into the hub flange.
  6. Place the hub with the lug stud installed, in a press supported by Adapter Tool C-4698-1 or equivalent. Press the wheel lug stud into the hub flange until it is fully seated against the back side on the hub flange.
  7. Place the steering knuckle with the wheel bearing installed, in a press with special Receiver Tool MB-990799 or equivalent supporting the inner race of the wheel bearing. Place the hub in the wheel bearing, making sure it is square with the bearing. Press the hub into the wheel bearing until it is fully bottomed in the wheel bearing.
  8. Install the steering knuckle and the wheel.
  9. Check and/or adjust the front alignment.

2wd front wheel need to replace bearings or hub assembly which is best

A Front Wheel Drive Vehicle Can Have Two Types Of Rear Wheel Bearings: Serviceable Bearings, Or Nonserviceable, Sealed Bearings. When Sealed Bearings Fail, The Bolts Holding The Bearing And Hub To The Axel Or Control Arm Must Be Removed. When Installing The New Bearing Assembly, Torque The Bolts To Specifications.Some Manufacturers require The Use Of New Fasteners When Rear Bearings And Hubs Are Replaced.

When A Serviceable Wheel Bearing Is Used, The Bearing Can Be Disassembled And Packed With Grease.It Is Serviced Like A Front Wheel Bearing On A Rear-wheel-Drive-Car.

Why are my wheel bearings failing again

I would say that a premature bearing failure would be caused by a defective (cheap?) bearing, or improper installation. The axle nut is what clamps the bearing and sets the bearing preload. If the nut is under-torqued, the best bearings in the world will fail very quickly. The 2002 bearing is a Gen1 style cartridge bearing. It has to be pressed into the knuckle, and then the hub gets pressed into the bearing. It the bearing isn't properly support during the press operation, and is pressed across the balls, the balls or races will get damaged... bearing is done for.

2001 accent gl w/1.6 ohc bent valves

Second hand head from wreckers & new headgasket is probably cheapest way, or just pull yours off & replace bent valves & refit, shouldn't cost more than a few hundred if you can do it yourself. Would bbe worth the price of a new manual if you're unsure how to go about it.

Microwave stopped working

Microwaves today are almost throwaway items. Look in your area if there are electronic repair centers. Note that almost nobody looks at anything without a $25 or so "check it out" fee. . It sounds like the microprocessor might have been fried by a surge in line voltage, age, etc.

Can't remove rear hub to get at brakes

You may have to heat the outer part of the hub to get this off. For some reason, the car companies seem to consider the rear axle components as 'throwaway'. Too much trouble to use a large nut and cotter pin to hold the wheel on and allow the bearings to be greased. We had a Dodge Caravan do this and the mechanic had a terrible time getting it off!

Light on the left of dashboard where heat gauge is, is burnt out.

You can replace the bulbs but if you have never replaced one it might be more than you want to deal with. You have to remove the beauty ring from dash assembly then remove dash, be careful when you unplug the wires from the back of the Speedo assembly notice which direction it comes out. You can maneuver it out of it's hole and pull it out and on the back side of the cluster you will see miniature bulbs that can be replaced unscrew counter clock wise then lift bulbs out, for a do it yourselfer it's a 3 hour job to get everything back right and If you don't screw up the plastic circuit board on the back and you don't bend the tangs on the connectors.
