Tip & How-To about Audio Players & Recorders

I Want My (Digital) Rights!

In 1958, the Rocket Chemical Company realized that selling WD-40 for public use as a lubricant spray could be a very profitable endeavor. Today, WD-40 widely available in hardware and discount stores. There are five delivery systems for the product: WD-40 aerosel is the traditional delivery format; the WD-40 Smart Straw is a can with a permanently attached straw; the WD-40 No-Mess Pen allows you to use the product while on the run; WD-40 bulk/non-aerosol is offered in gallon and 55-gallon containers for large jobs; and the WD-40 Big Blast provides a wider spray pattern and larger can size.
Although WD-40 has a very distinctive smell, there is nothing dangerous in the product. The odor is simply the result of a fragrance added during the manufacturing process. The primary ingredients in the product are mineral spirits, liquefied petroleum gas, and mineral oil. The exact formula of WD-40 is a highly guarded trade secret, however.
For automotive repair, WD-40 has many uses. It can drive moisture out of the high- and low-tension electrical components of a motor engine and loosen nuts or screws. If you're trying to keep your car in top shape, WD-40 is also good for restoring and cleaning padded leather dashboards in vehicles.
Around your home, WD-40 can fix noisy door hinges, keep scissors working smoothly, loosen rusted screws, stop electric fans from squeaking, and lubricate the tracks in your windows to make them easier to open. Many people also report that spraying WD-40 on hand tools is a good way to prevent rust damage. Although it seems hard to believe, WD-40 is also a great household cleaning product. It is good for removing lipstick or tomato stains from your laundry. You can use it to remove stubborn duct tape residue, clean splattered grease off your stove, keep glass shower doors free of water spots, clean stainless steel sinks, and camouflage scratches in ceramic or marble floors. WD-40 will even take oil spots off concrete driveways.

Dint spray WD 40 for maintenance on the fins?? that does nothing good and apparently is dong something bad actually.

WD 40 means ,,,,, Water Displacer and it was their 40th recipe!!

Its great for removing roof sealants from your hands, or tar, oil etc, but a terrible lubricant
and the motors today require no oiling, so cut the WD 40 routine its not doing anything you want and is dong everything you dont want.

The door ajar light stays on all the time. I tried to push in on the doors, but nothing works. Please help me John M


this is caused by the door ajar switch sticking. easiest and cheapest way to fix this is to spray a generous amount of wd-40/enforcer/pb blaster or like spray chemical into all the door latches. this will free up the sticking switch. spray it into all your door latches since we dont know which switch is sticking and spray a lot of wd-40 onto them
