This problem would be so easy for Kenmore to correct by simply redesigning and replacing these knife holders....but Until such time as Kenmore responsibly reacts, I recommend remounting the holder to the side of the basket at a better angle using your knife with the longest handle as a guide) usng plastic ties such as used as handcuffs and cable ties. (Not pretty, but effective).

Can't figure out where the screws are on the control panel and how to get it off the lid

You can raise the washer top using a flat knife type of tool to move springs thru the gap between the washer top & the lower front piece. Pull upward on the top and peer into the small gap. At each side you should see the springy top holder. Just push on it with the knife or flat putty knife

How to remove the rack holder from a GE JMV1340WW002 microwave.

Hi best way is to remove the outer case and cut the back of the clip off, alternativly you can just lift the old clip from inside the oven cooking cavity with a flat knife or spreader untill the plastic clip on the rearside breaks off, it'l just fall down and sit in a void in the bottom of the oven and wont cause any damage. The new clip is just installed using an upward motion whilst pushing inward untill it clicks into place.
Hope this helps

Stanley 10-777 utility knife: I need to reinsert the retractable blade slide back into the knife body. I try but the knife won't close.

I had the same trouble. The blade holder was out of the knife and would not go back in. I fixed it this way: open the screw knob all the way to the least tension. Slide the two parts open but not all the way- there is a tab on the blade holder that gets in the way if you try to drop it in at the fully open position. With the two halves SLIGHTLY open- slide the blade holder in making sure that the tab is seated in it's slot. Depress the thumb tab and bring it to the most forward position and the two halves should be able to be seated together again.
