Question about Dell 0Y3740 Keyboard

1 Answer

Key number four/dollar sign stopped working today

Some corrosion around metal base under key. When key removed and rubber gasket compressed nothing happens still. All other keys seem fine. Do I need to replace the entire keyboard or just have key repaired? I am in Hawaii, lots of rust and corrosion here.

Not worth repairing, if one key is faulty, most likely others will follow, get a new keyboard.

Type dollar sign

My dell key board has a dollar sign over the four. Press shift and hold while you press four and it should work as I understand all keyboards are numbered the same. Hope I am right.

Condensation in refrigerator under freezer

Hi friend, thanks for your post!

I understand that you are receiving condensation under your freezer within your Frigidaire refrigerator. It could be a possible that you have a leak in your gasket and that is what is causing a buildup of condensation. You can check the gasket on your refrigerator by using a dollar bill. Place the bill between the body of the freezer and close the door. The dollar bill should stay in place and pull out with a small amount of resistance. If the dollar bill falls out when placed between the gasket and cabinet double check to see if the door is being blocked by anything stopping it from closing it. If nothing is stopping the door from closing then replace the gasket.

If the gasket is fine it could be an issue with blockage within the drain line and you may want to perform a manual defrost which can be done by disconnecting power from your appliance for at least two to four hours. I hope this information is helpful. -Matt

How to remove a sump from a Audi A4 1998 1.8 turbo

Raise the car and PUT IT ON JACKSTANDS. If it falls, it WILL KILL YOU.

Get underneath the front and locate the sump ("oil pan" to those of us on the American side of the pond). Around its rim you'll find a (rectangular) ring of bolts - quite a lot of them. You can use a socket with about a 6" (15cm) extension to reach the bolt heads.

Drain the sump before you loosen any bolts. Remove all the bolts except two at each end - only loosen the two at each end, but loosen them a long way. You want about three bolt threads still remaining in place.

Now take a large rubber mallet underneath the car and tap on both sides of the sump. Its gasket tends to be very stubborn about coming off, so you may need to tap it pretty hard. Don't bludgeon it to death - if tapping hard doesn't break the gasket loose, you may have neglected to remove a bolt someplace. Check again.

When it comes loose, it'll probably be pretty sudden. This is why you left those four bolts in the corners - to catch it and prevent it from falling in your face upside-down, then bouncing off to the side & filling with dirt. You need it to remain totally clean inside.

When it comes loose, you can finish removing the last four bolts. Unless I miss my guess, you used Castrol GTX in that engine, so the inside of the sump will be NASTY. Clean it up well with clean rags and kerosene or mineral (white) spirits. Do NOT use gasoline (petrol), because that can cause severe anemia.

When all the nasty stuff is cleaned out, remove the remaining gasket material from the sump's rim. Crawl back under the car to inspect for any remaining gasket material from the underside of the block, too. Use a gasket scraper for both surfaces - you want nothing but bright shiny metal for gasket surfaces.

Using a good automotive gasket sealer (shellac-based or silicone-based), apply the gasket to the rim of the sump. Use several bolts, inserted backwards, to temporarily hold it in place while you press the gasket into intimate contact with the sump's rim. Immediately remove those bolts and apply gasket sealer also to the second gasket surface. Transfer the newly gasketed sump underneath the car - do this while the gasket sealer is still uncured.

Very carefully, so as to not disturb the gasket, lift it into place and reinstall as many bolts as you can start with your fingers. Be VERY sure that every bolt goes through a hole in the gasket - do NOT allow the gasket to slip to the side, or it'll leak very badly.

Use your socket & extension to install the rest of the bolts. Snug all the bolts up only finger-tight, then begin tightening them with your socket. First tighten the two bolts opposite each other in the middle of the sump's two narrow sides - tighten them only about half-tight. From there, work your way out to the ends of the sump, then go back to the middle two again and tighten them fully. Again work your way out to the ends.

DO NOT overtighten these bolts! Be careful not to distort any metal, and remember that these bolts are threading into alumin(i)um so they can't tolerate the kind of torque that iron will accept. If you distort the metal, you may also damage the gasket or strip bolt threads... and your new gasket will leak. You want the bolts TIGHT, but not over-tight.

Lower the car and refill the crankcase oil.

Oh... while you were in there, I hope you remembered to remove the oil pickup and clean (or replace) it. :) :) :)

What is the price for drain pump washer for a danby washer

It all depends on if your talking about danby's dishwasher or a washing machine by Danby.

there are also two different types of washers metal and rubber. these are different from gaskets which go between two parts.

As for the rubber washer danby has a list of authorized retailers and service depots that sell their products. These retailers will list replacement parts specific to your type of washer rubber gaskets are typically 50 cents up to fifteen dollars but the rubber washers i found on was around 2.50 cents depending on the model.
Also if your looking for gaskets the same list applies to replacement parts but they are more specific and are pricer costing upwards of 10 to fifteen dollars or more.

Engine will only run if gas is manually put into carb

hi there galawson

provided compression and spark are ok and exhaust is clear
sounds like unit has a air leak and is not creating a vaccuum / pressure impule to operate the pump diaphram in the carb - pressure and vaccuum test the crankcase to see where the air leak is comming from

it could be c/case seals, base gasket, carb gasket -insulator block gasket, manifold intake boot , impulse tube split /broken or the carb just needs to be rekited with new gaskets/daiphrams / needles /levers etc

you willhave to remove muffler and carb block them off with rubber and a metal plate and pressurize to 7- 8 psi throug the spark plug hole with the piston at btc

you will soon hear and see a air leak if you use saopy water to brush around the area

replace faulty / leaking parts and assemble

cheers hope it helps

Replace seal

Take the door off. You will find a 1/4" screw every 3" to 5" all the way around the door. Remove every one of them. It amy take a couple trips around to get all of them. Before you attempt to install the gasket, soak it in hot water for about an hour (while you are removing the old gasket). This will soften the rubber so that you can work with it. After you have replaced the gasket and re-installed the door. Take a rag soaked in hot water and wipe it slowly around the gasket. This will warm it again. Now take Vaseline and smear a small amount all around the gasket. Close the door and let sit for 15 to 20 mins. Now take a dollar bill, open the door and close it on the bill so that a end of the bill is sticking out. Now pull the bill out slowly. The gasket should have a snug grip on the dollar. If not re-heat it then close the door so that the magnet will pull and stretch the gasket until it touches the box. Do this all around the door to insure that the rubber of the gasket has expanded and allowed the magnet to reach the fridge case. If you take your time, you should have no problem. Good luck
