Turn unit upside down so you are looking @ the underside of the spool. On the side of the spool should be a hole which you insert a rod to keep the spool housing from turning on the shaft. Turn and head will come right off.

Miele w4840 door rubber seal relacement


i just replaced rubber gasket on miele w4840 it took lots of patience! there is a retaining wire on spring on front part this is easily removed. next there is a light and water line about 11 o'clock take this apart and unhook water line in order to remove these from gasket. next there is a locking wire on right side at 9 o'clock. i was able to get a flat head screwdriver and loosen the screw you can open about 1 -1.5 inch at this point the rubber seal can be removed. you have to carefully (painstakingly) put the new seal on. make sure everything is lined up right before replacing the wires took me about an hour as the gasket is difficult to put on back part on drum

How to change a blown head gasket


Changing a head gasket is a major engine repair. Unless you have a good set of tools including a torque wrench and a good general knowledge of how things work, it can be a tough job. If you still want to try, I would highly recommend a repair manual for your vehicle such as a Haynes manual that covers 1997 Toyota trucks. It will have pictures of most of the parts as well as the specifications for tightening all the bolts when you are ready to put it all back together. Basically replacing a head gasket requires that you do the following: Drain the coolant, drain the oil. Remove fuel lines to and from the engine, remove the electrical and vacuum lines that lead to and from the intake manifold,remove the alternator, air pump, ac compressor, tie it back, don't disconnect the refrigerent lines, remove the valve cover remove the intake manifold, remove the front engine cover which will expose the timing belt. Remove the timing belt, remove the cam shaft. You should now see the head bolts. Remove the head bolts. Carefully tap on the head until you can loosen it from the engine block. You may have to drive a wedge between the head and the engine block to force it to loosen up. This is a delicate operation, because if you damage the head during removal, it won't seal with the new gasket. You will need a top rebuild gasket set for your engine. Somewhere around $150.00. Every gasket surface needs to be cleaned to the bare metal without scratching the surface. Any old gasket material left on the parts will cause leaks. Once you get the head off, spend another 150.00 or so to get it boiled out by a head shop in your area. They will also test it for leaks and cracks. If the head is cracked, it will have to be replaced. If you don't get it checked for cracks, this whole exercise will be wasted if it turns out to be a cracked head instead of a blown head gasket. Anyway, reverse everything, tighten it by the book to specified torque put in new oil and antifreeze and you are set to go. I replaced my first head gasket when I was about 15 years old. It took me a couple of weeks and I broke about 6 or 7 bolts off on things like the intake manifold, front cover etc. I learned a lot from that old '58 ford. Good luck, and get that Haynes manual.

I need to put in new string -- don't know how to install. I need to know what to remove -- do I unscrew something, or do I just stick the string inside the casing?


This trimmer is an "AFS" (Automatic Feed System) trimmer meaning the trimmer uses centrifugal force and a lever that play out trimmer line without you ahving to bump it on the ground. Your trimmer uses .080" diamter line. You can get a replacement spool and lever at Lowe's fairly cheap. I would say get the spool that is already wound rather than trying to buy just the line and re-spooling...that will make this a LOT easier!

What you do to replace the line is place the trimmer on a stable flat surface (like a workbench), raise up the head of the trimmer and follow the steps below:

1. Remove the spool cover (this is the orange cap on the head)

2. Remove the spool, (observe and note the orientation of the spool!)

3. Using a pair of pliers, pull the orange feed lever straight out (observe and note the orientation of the lever!)...do not try to pry it off, you will damage the head!

4. Insert the new lever in the same orientation you noted when you removed the old one.

5. Insert the new spool and line in the same orientation as the old spool.

6. Replace the cap.

Black and Decker has an 800 number you can call if you get stuck, the number is 1-800-544-6986. Good Luck!

I have replaced the line spool with a new one and it will not run


hey mate, the best thing to do would be try eliminate sections if the head does not spin remove it see if the arbor that the head connects spins with the head removed, if it still does not spin remove remove your drive shaft and check if motor actually spins some of these contain sheer pins to prevent damage to the motor, I would highly reccomend this be done by a professional as there is moving parts and electric motor involved... hope this helps

Black ink will NOT work! NEW cartridge!!!


Your print head is already clog, if you can find chemical solution in your area,you can try to soak it without removing the print-head, on its parking put some solution then let it be there for 24 hrs then try printing,do this for three days if nothing happens,buy a new printer, because buying a print head is not practical, it almost cost the same as a new one.
