    I think I may have broken the hinge on the right side; I got the left side connected back on, but the right one won't sit right and now it keeps falling off every time I open the door.

    I'm going to call to see if someone can come and fix it.

  • greenleaf5 Feb 19, 2009

    I had to hire someone to fix my door. They took the whole door apart and found that the spring on the right side that controls the door (keeps it from dropping open) had deteriorated and needed to be replaced. While they were at it, they also replaced the entire hinge on that side, since I'd bent it after using it for about a year without a spring. It cost about $250 to repair, because it took so long to take the door apart, and then re-assemble it. If you had the patience, you might be able to do it yourself, you'd need to order a new spring and potentially a new hinge, if yours is damaged. Just make sure you remember how to put the door back together once the spring is replaced! lucas 186 gives you a very good description of how to re-attach the door.

    Lucas186 thank you soooo much. This solution allowed me to get my DCS door on and save a service call. Sooo, either you work for DCS, perhaps designed the hinge (which after using your technique is admirable) or you repair DCS.

This technique is for a DCS range. On the hinge flanges their are two parts to each side. The lower flange has a little clip on it that attaches to the upper flange. To attach these bend these by laying the door down with the inside of the door up and using a rag or something to pad the palm of your hand, press the upper flange down till it meets the lower flange then hinge the clip up (that is on the lower one) and attach it on to the upper one. Do this on both sides then pick up door and slide the flanges into the slots on the range till they meet resistance. Bend the door down slightly, release the clips and close the door. If this doesn't work the first time, repeat process with different door angle. Be careful not to force anything, this is actually easier than it appears.

    We had to use this method today. It worked. We struggled for hors before someone said lets look on the internet for an answer. Although I wasn't able to make the chicken parm today I am so thankful we were able to get the door back on and didn't have to call a service man. by the way, the door was taken off because my sons ipod touch slid underneath the stove and he tried to lift it to retrieve it.

Replace outside door handle 1992 somina

Exterior door handles of vehicles are fairly straightforward things to replace once the interior trim panel or door card and waterproof membrane have been removed and these things are often less than straightforward with hidden clips and screws. A repair manual makes the process simpler if you haven't much experience.

The screws or nuts securing the door handle are then accessible with the window up. There is probably a link connecting the handle to the door catch but not always and if the handle also contains the lock there might be a second link connecting to the door catch. Sometime it is easier to release the links from the door catch and withdraw them with the handle and sometimes it is easier to disconnect at the handle before removal. Sometimes it is easier to withdraw the handle a little way and unclip the link(s) outside the door.

In nearly all cases it is a task that is complicated and fiddly the first few times but incredibly simple later on. Look forward to breaking plastic clips, especially in cold weather, and a feeling of frustration.

The best advice I can offer you is make yourself comfortable and don't try to hurry. Have an assistant standing by but don't allow her to distract you. Work in twilight or under overcast skies or deep shade so the shadows aren't so deep ordinary torchlight needed to see inside the door gets lost and you are working blind.
Don't forget to fit the gaskets to the new handle before refitting. Finish by lubricating whatever can be lubricated inside the door, testing whatever can be tested and then washing your hands before refitting the membrane and door card.

Hotpoint WM64 Washing Machine Wont Start (replaced interlock)

I've an American machine, but had a similar problem. Turns out, in MY machine, there are one or two longish magnets in the detergent drawer handle that must be properly in place for the washer to operate. You may be able to search on-line for replacement parts to discover whether your machine has these tricky little pieces. If so, they may have become dislodged whilst cleaning the detergent drawer.

Here's a silly question, have you ensured the water to the hoses is turned back on and the hoses aren't kinked?

Good Luck, Luv!

I have St. George Imperial Fan Forced Oven with Griller (Wall Oven) SGW FO need measurements and specs also model number ?? Can someone please help me have been looking on net for ages...Getting...

you should find the model number between the bottom of the griller door & the liner .. silly place really to get at... as you cannot remove the grill door as you can the oven door.
we have just rebuilt one from two we acquired ... best oven ever .... there will be a few different models as these were produced & cosmetically changed over a 20 yrs period. Ours now looks like a brand new oven as they are REAL baked enamel ... you can clean with caustic based product without any harm.
I am searching for a manual if anyone has one mine is 67/ I presume the 81 in the number denotes 1981 manufacture.
Don't be fooled if you find the oven does not heat at some stage & everything else works ... this is usually after a cleaning & the auto on & off timer has been activated ...just a matter of setting back to manual mode.

Hope this helps although you have probably solved by now having posted in April 11.

Anyone have a manual for this model would be appreciated .

Gritty/sandy feeling on dishes from dishwasher

You could only check the basics. Since the dishes are clean, it means they went through the wash cycle. It also means that that the holes on the washer arm are not blocked. If they were salty and dirty the wash arms would be something to check. And since they came out feeling like salt is on them its possible they didn't rinse and its also possible the dirty water didn't drain.Were your drain and fill hoses checked or did the techs just check the dish washing machine itself? Its also possible the water for rinse is not hot enough. Before the rinse cycle comes around try running the hot water at your kitchen faucet. Any other issues may be within the cycling of the machine.

Checked belt, looks ok, just slipped off the pulley

well you yank out the filter first.Remove the 2 screws in the filter housing on top.Then use a putty knife to pop the top. Remove the screws holding the front panel on. VERY IMPORTANT! Raise the front up an inch before pulling forward or the panel clips will break! Some models have a panel on bottom. If they do then this panel must come off first. Then you remove the door springs and back off the screws holding down the bottom of the door panel. Then pop the top and remove the screws on top to get the panel out of your way. Use THIS to configure belt routing
