Question about Hunter 20537 / 20538 The Vista Iron Ceiling Fan

Open Question

Unable to remove retainer ring on Hunter fan, 23269-380, Type 2.

The upper retainer ring is metal and does not have screws nor dimples and I'm unable to squeeze it in any way. Applying pressure and attempting to rotate the retainer ring in either direction causes the whole fan to try to rotate in the same direction.
Thanks for your help.

Okay. Turn off circuit breaker. Take the bottom off the fan. Mark how the wires are connected. Remove switch by unscrewing the sleeve you mentioned. Take the switch to Home Depot (or the like) -- buy a replacement.

If you have to turn the breaker back on during this process, make sure you have a wire nut over the end of each of the loose wires you disconnected from the switch.

After you take the switch out, you'll know how to reinstall it, so I won't go thru that.

I had the same problem. I found that the reverse button needs to be pressed really hard. It now works but I need to press that button really really hard.

SOURCE: Hunter ceiling fan (model no. 25736) and light not starting

Home Depot sells universal remote systems (transmitter and receiver) for around $30 (in Delaware & Pennsylvania) -- don't know price in Chicago).

I'd just replace it. Hunter may be correct that they are the only source for the receiver, but if you get a new transmitter as well, you don't need their receiver. The labor is the same either way.

SOURCE: HUNTER ceiling fan remote works with fan but not light

Unfortunately, you either have a faulty reciever or remote. A replacement will cost $30-$40 at homedepot2.gif. And it doesn't matter which is faulty because you can't purchase them seperately anyhow.

How do i remove rear rim from alko ride on lawn mower


I was unable to find your exact mower, however, most rear mower wheels come off as follows: remove the black rubber cap in the center of the wheel hub. A channel lock plier and one of those paint can lid removers generally works well for removing the flexible cap. You should then see a flat metal horse-shoe shaped retaining ring. One should ideally remove that with a pair of hog ring pliers. These pliers have two pins that fit into the holes on the retaining ring and pull them farther apart. However, if you do not have the right tool, you can usually pry a retraining ring off with a couple of flat blade screw drivers. Look to be sure there is no cotter pin that may need removed. To remove a cotter pin, use a pair of pliers and an ice pick or screwdriver. When you take off the wheel, there will be a piece of metal approximately one and half inches by 1/4 inch on the axle that slides into a little groove directly on the axle. Be careful not to lose it. When you put the wheel back on, you will need to slide that pin which I think is called a "key" back through the hub of the wheel. Good luck.

I need to remove my hunter louden flush mount ceiling fan. There are no screws.


Good choice getting rid of that fan. The housing probably twist off. Could also have a ring at top next to ceiling that covers the screws at top. Just twist & pull down.

Steering wheel changes


Here is the simple steps to change the old steering wheel and install the new one.

Remove the Original Steering Wheel

1.Read instructions that come with the steering wheel, and gather the following tools: screwdriver, pliers and a puller.
2.Point wheels straight ahead.
3.Disconnect battery or pull horn fuse before removing the old wheel. This prevents the horn from shorting out or blowing during installation.
4.Remove the horn mechanism by doing one or more of the following steps: Press down on the horn cap or ring and turn; remove the emblem cap from its snapped-in position by grabbing it and pulling it toward you or prying it loose; or if the horn ring is secured by screws that are concealed in the rear side of the wheel spokes, use a screwdriver to remove the screws and the ring.
5.Remove horn wire or spring-loaded metal plunger from plastic housing by either pulling straight out on the metal plunger or, on most models, by twisting the plastic sleeve to the left and then pulling out. Cut the wire off the plastic sleeve and keep the sleeve for later use.
6.Remove the shaft-nut retainer clip, if it is present, and keep for later use. Remove the shaft nut, which holds the wheel to the shaft.
7.Mark the shaft at the twelve o'clock position so that you will know where to position the top of the new wheel.
8.Insert a conventional puller into the two tapped holes which appear in the hub of the old wheel and pull off the steering shaft.
9.Remove the original wheel.

Installing the New Steering Wheel

1.Place the small tubular metal sleeve down over the steering shaft.
2.Position hub on splined shaft, making certain that the shaft is properly positioned using the mark you made in step 7. You may have to rotate the plastic horn contact tube slightly to align it with the appropriate hole through the hub.
3.Insert plastic sleeve and spring from step 5 without wire into plastic horn housing. If the plastic sleeve extends above the top bolt surface of the custom hub, cut down the sleeve so that it is 1/8-inch below the top of the hub. Remove sleeve.
4.Insert through the plastic sleeve the wire lead that was supplied in the wheel kit. One end will not pass through the sleeve. This bell-shaped end will go into the horn contact housing. Insert the sleeve and wire into the housing and lock into position.
5.Route wire around the hub from the ten o'clock position to about the two o'clock position to properly align wheel. Position post cover and wheel on hub. Make certain that the wire lead passes through the appropriate holes in the two o'clock position. Using the three shoulder bolts provided, fasten the hub, post cover and wheel together, but do not tighten.
6.Check wheel for proper positioning. If correct, reinstall the shaft nut from step 6 and tighten. Reinstall shaft-nut retainer clip. If the retainer does not fit into the groove on the shaft, tighten the nut until it will fit as originally located.
7.Remove shoulder bolts and reinstall them through the retainer ring with the fiber side toward you. Tighten the shoulder bolts with caution - excess torque will result in damage to the hub. The shaft nut, if correctly tightened, will firmly hold the hub and wheel assembly on the shaft.
8.Connect wire lead to the connector on the retainer ring. Position spring on center nut. Align the dimples of the horn cap with reliefs in fiber material and push into the dimples past the fiber. Turn cap left or right until tight.
9.Reconnect battery or replace fuse.

How to replace the headlight on a 1987 chevy el camino


Check this GM Chevy Mid-Size Cars 1964-1988 procedure from Repair Guide...


Headlights - REMOVAL & INSTALLATION
If some or all of the headlight bulbs being replaced still operate, refer to the headlight aiming procedure later in this section to ease checking or adjustment of the headlights after installation.
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Loosen and remove the retaining screws, then remove the headlight bezel from the front of the vehicle.
  3. On most models, the headlight bulb retaining ring is only held on by retaining screws. If so, remove the bulb retaining ring screws. These are the screws which hold the thin metal ring which holds the bulb against the adjusting plate. Do not touch the two headlight aiming screws, at the center of the top and side of the retaining ring (these screws will have different heads), or the headlight aim will have to be re-adjusted.

One way to identify the retaining ring screws is that they will be threaded through a lip on the outer edge of the retaining ring before threading through the adjusting plate. One the other hand, the adjustment screws are threaded through the adjustment plate and a spring loaded holder underneath it.

  1. Some later model vehicles will use a spring on the retaining ring. If so equipped, disengage the spring from the retaining ring, using a cotter pin removal tool, then remove the retaining ring screws.
  2. Pull the bulb and ring forward and then separate them. Unplug the electrical connector from the rear of the bulb and remove the bulb from the vehicle.
To install:
  1. Plug the new bulb into the electrical connector.
  2. Position the retaining ring over the bulb, then install the assembly to the adjusting plate. Secure using the retaining screws and, if applicable, the spring.
  3. Install and secure the headlight bezel.
  4. Connect the negative battery cable.

Access for disassembly


the vanity ring usuallu comes off one of two ways.

It may be held on with 1 or 2 small screws.When you loosen the screws you can turn the ring a little bit and it comes off. Sometimes you have to remove the screws and the ring will come off.

The 2nd method requires turning the ring counterclockwise and it comes off. If this is the way yours comes off, you can usually see 2 dimples on the top of the ring that fit into matching slots.
