Question about Grohe Home

The hose has come off the locking piece that connects to the show

I reattached the thread after cutting off a short piece of hose. It screws into the hose, but I'm not sure it's going to hold. Do I use a plumbing cement? (I used putty) Do I need a new hose set? I'm not sure of the exact Grohe shower system, but it's about three years old.

Hi in the 1st instance if you cut off some of the hose it will never hold on, so to save further probs i would get a new hose, go to the grohe website & you should be able to view ones that better match your existing one. otherwise you will just get frustrated everytime it comes loose or falls off!

kindly

Richie

The screws the connect the tailgate latch connected to my dodge caliber broke. It is still connected but I would like to securly reattach it to the car


The sheet metal screw holes have wallowed out, so you can go with the next larger size screw from your local hardware storm. Take one of the screw in with you so they can match the number of threads per inch and the pitch on the old ones.

Tip

Engine coolant leak


There are no coolant lines etc running on the lower part of the engine.Usually water will leak from above and run down finally dripping from under the engine. Coolant will not leak from the "engine" it leaks from a hose or thermostat housing.


Start from the top and work down. Check each hose by feeling with your hand. Look for a wet spot. wipe the hose with a cloth to clean if necessary. If you think you found it dry the area and check again.Sometimes you need to move the hose around to open a small tear and expose the leak source.

Tip: park overnight on a piece of cardboard. Look for the spot where it is dripping. This will give you and idea where to look.

If a hose leaks around a clamp tighten the clamp. Screw clamps can be tightened. The spring style can not. Once moved the spring type often leak. If moved try moving to the exact position it was in using the impression left on the pipe. I could suggest though that your replace it with a screw type clamp.

If you find a torn hose you may be able to disconnect, cut the end and reattach. If too short replace.

Check where each hose connects to the engine. This will be the thermostat housing and the heater supply line. If a housing is leaking try gently tightening (careful they crack). Or replace the gasket. Use a new gasket do not just use gasket sealer.

Check at the radiator. There will be a heat sensor there. They screw into the radiator. If it is leaking try to gently tighten (take care you can break it). If that does not work remove the sensor and put Teflon tape on the threads. That should do it.

If you don't see a leak at all. Start the engine and run. This will build pressure in the cooling system. Look for leak using the same process. Careful as the engine is hot.

We have small pieces of broken glass in our drain. We unscrewed 3 screws but still can't get the thing off.


Duct tape flexible tube or short piece of plastic pipe onto the shop vac hose and put down into the drain.

Power steering pump leak. i hear a whinning noise, i see power steering fluid on floor, and i have to refill fluid about twice a week. whats the problem?


90% of the time the problem is not the pump, but the hose connections. Detach the connections, clean any debis on the threads and reattach. Be careful not to cross thread when reattaching and don't over-tighten. Making a connection too tight might warp the connection and cause a leak. In severe cases you may need to replace the hoses. They are available at most auto parts store and will save you $$ over going to a dealer.

Diagram showing assembly of 4 parts of cutting head


I solved the problem finally. I discovered that the plate which has the 2 large threaded holes which carry the fixed cutter, had to be locked in behind 2 spring fixing points (on the body of the clippers) before inserting the tongue into the body of the shaver. When I first removed the plate I used a screwdriver blade to spring the tongue away from the body and the whole caboodle (4 pieces) fell out on the bench, so I didn't see how it was assembled. Thanks for your interest anyway.

The silver band came off my KSM90 stand mixer. How do I reattach it.


The silver trim piece on you mixer can be reattached by taking the back off your unit. once this is done you will be able to see two screw holes on the left and right of your unit. simply wrap the band around the mixer correclty and use fine threaded phillips screws to attach the trim. hope this helps

How do you take out a broken wall attachement for a pool polaris vacuum? the inside is stripped and we can't get the old plastic out to put in new plastic to attach hose to??


??? is the piece your trying to remove screwed into a coupling. If so use a hacksaw blade ,insert it thru the nipple and cut very gently thru the nipple in several places. !!!!!!! I repeat that is is very importand not to damage the coupling threads. When you are cutting do it a little at a time. As not to damage the threads. If you cut to deep you will ruin the coupling. If you are not sure of what you are doing get a serviceman to do it.

Need special tool for air/fuel adjustment, where can i buy one at.


Gary JP4... remember that short piece of hose you used to get the screws out? Why not just use it to make the adjustments to begin with. I found a piece of refer icemaker hose to work great, but also flex fuel line hose for gas engines is also great. Just push in far enough to squeeze down over the head of the screw... No muss, no fuss.
