Hi, Had a problem at weekend where the door would not open, found the solution on here :-)....now need to strip down the door to get access to the locking mechanism, I have undoone the screws on the back, but there seems to be quite a resistance to opening especially around the handle/locking area ??

Thanks Rob

Managed to work it out, you have to slide the outer door case away from the handle locking mechanism, slide left and move away (after undoing the 6 screws on the inside) :-)

Hi, wondering if you could provide any information on how to remove the rhr door glass from a 2014 jeep Cherokee.I have the door completely stripped except for the door glass,can't seem to get it out


you will need to raise the glass , manually, until you can access the bottom of the glass where it connects to the opening mechanism and release (if not already at this stage) ,if you want the glass out of the door completely then you have to remove all the trims along the edge of door(weather strips) and around window/door frame , the seals ,the window will then be able to be lifted out , carefully !!

Door locked shut


Hi found myself in same situation. Press in latch and insert fingers upwards there is a grey plastic strip push this up with fingers and door should open. Note upward press needed where this catch meets front of machine so just slide fingers up from latch/handle. There's actually no need to take top off to enable this.

Main gear in door opener striped, model #41A30339.


With stripped gear, you definitely need to look at your garage door hardware! Openers are designed to 'guide' the door up and down, not push or pull. If you have a stripped gear, most likely the opener has been working overtime.

You can check the balance of your door, by disconnecting it from the opener and raising it manually up to about knee level. If it slides down on its own, your springs are fatigued and need to be replaced by a PROFESSIONAL (DO NOT WORK ON THE SPRINGS YOURSELF!)
You can view a how-to video at www.spokanegaragerepair.com/tips_tricks.htm

You can replace the gear and sprocket yourself if you have a few hours.. a professional will probably charge $150-$200 to replace, which- you can replace the whole opener for not too much more.

If the opener is more than 7 years old, I would recommend replacing the whole thing because all of the other parts will be worn as well, otherwise you can get away with just replacing the gear/sprocket.

Good Luck!

Hi

Dishwashers use Bi-Metal strip to allow the dispenser to open/close. This strip when heat up causes the soap door spring to open up the dispenser. If this strip is not heated doesn't allow the door to open. The strip may not be getting 120V or maybe disconnected. Newer (plastic liner) dishwashers use a wax motor to open the soap dispenser. The plunger inside the wax motor slowly moves and pushes the plunger and door open. And, if this wax motor doesn't receive 120 volts, then it'll not work. Please check the voltage to the wax motor/Bi-metal strip; also inspect the connections to these. Hope this helps...

GE profile model GSD 4120y70BB the second soap dispensor does not open at the right time. When cycle is done and the door is opened the soap has just ran down. It is like it is opening to late.


Hi

Many dishwashers (but not all) use a BI-metal strip that heats up once power is applied to it. The BI-metal strip bends and allows the soap door spring to open up the dispenser. This bi-metal strip is not given full 120 volts power, the timer "shunts" the power through either the heating element ( most common ) or the motor and this gives the bi-metal strip lower than full power to work and open. Most often the bi-metal strip has lost its ability to bend properly and needs to be replaced. Older GE dishwashers used a mechanical arm driven by the timer to open the dispenser = no electrical bi-metals. Newer (plastic liner) Maytag dishwashers and many newer Whirlpool and Frigidaire dishwashers use a wax motor to open the soap dispenser; this wax motor does receive 120 volts to work. The plunger inside the wax motor slowly moves and pushes the plunger and door open. This is what a wax motor looks like.


Please do rate the solution and revert for further assistance.

My printer always tells me paper jam


Hi there,

the issue can be found when the paper feed rolls in the printer or the internal encoder strip are dirty.

Please try the following:

- open the backdoor of the printer
- also open the front door
- unplug the power chord without shutting down the printer
- now clean the paper feed rolls inside the printer with a soft rubber
- turn the rolls some times (10 tries or so) from down to up
- close the backdoor
- move the cartridge cart some times from one side to the other
- now you see a transparent strip over the metal bar
- this strip you can clean with cleaning alcohol
(be carefully! don't loose the strip or take too much alcohol)
- now let the printer dry over night (let it be open)
- next morning, close the front door
- press # and 6 at the same time and hold them
- keep them pressed and plug in the power chord
- keep them pressed until you see "semi nvm reset"

done

Hope it helps,
Henning
