It could be that your rollers are wore out and let the drum fall down. If you stick your hands inside of the drum can you lift it up with your hands like maybe the drum is down lower then it should be? And do this while not running of course. lol See if there is any slop in the drum with your hand lifting up and down on the drum. See if you can also pull it forward any.

How hard is it to replacing motor for power windows

Replacing the motor itself isn't too difficult. you simply drill out the rivets that hold the old motor in place and remove the motor. Putting it back in is more difficult as you'll need small nuts and bolts that will allow the window to move without catching on them. I tried to find rivets and a rivet gun that were big enough, but never did, so I had to resort to the nut and bolt method to hold the motor back on the bracket. Be careful when you try it out the first time, the nut or bolt may stick out too much and you can break the window when rolling it down.

How to fix a grabber reacher?

I have a idea to help you .If apart ,you mean the rivets are missing? If this is the issue, find or ask a family member w/ a pop rivet gun.The claws that do the grabbing are stamped,labeled (L)-(R). Reassembling the Grabber w/ the rivet gun wouldn't be too difficult .I could fix your problem, if we were neighbors!

I have a toro personal pace gts self propelled. only model number i foind was 2h802. pull cord broke, would like to know how to replace it

You can buy the whole part...cord,handle,recoil spring all in one piece and remove the old install the new...or you can just buy a legth of pull cord and swap everything over.
First take off the top 4 phillip screws and remove the plastic cover....don't forget to pull off the oil fill cap, next drill out the center of the three pop rivets that hold the recoil spring in place, use a drill bit a little smaller than the rivet, next tap the rivet out using a punch and a hammer, next install the pull chord by first rewindind the coil spring then locking it oin place so it wont twist back and install the new line(pull cord) install it on the top of the motor and install 3 new 1/4" aluminumn pop rivets 3/8" long with a pop rivet gun all can be purchased atb Ace Hardware...reinstall the reverse of dismantle proceedure and happy mowing...don't forget to attach the black plastic/rubber pull cord handle.
Happy Mowing!!

I need to put the top vent back together electric fry pan

Fix #1
These are usually riveted on. If you can find a small enough aluminum pop rivet (most lids are aluminum), you could pin it back together with that. The tricky part is ensuring that the rivet allows the vent to rotate between the opened and closed positions. I suggest cutting out two pieces of non-corrugated cardboard from a cereal box and punching out a hole in each the same diameter as the rivet. Use one on each side of the lid for a washer for the rivet. Include an aluminum washer for the tail end of the rivet. Your parts stack from the inside of the lid should be rivet (head end), cardboard washer, vent piece, lid, cardboard washer, metal washer. The pop rivet will be compressed against the metal washer on the outside when you operate the riveting tool. I suggest having the head on the inside of the lid because it will be easier to clean.

After you compress the rivet, tear the cardboard washers out. The vent should now pivot correctly.

Fix # 2
Use a 2-56 x 1/4 stainless steel screw (or similar metric size) and two stainless steel nuts. Assemble the vent to the lid using the screw and one of the nuts. Tighten the nut only until it starts to drag on the vent, then back it off slightly. Next, put the other nut on. Hold the first nut in place and tighten the second nut down onto it to lock it in place on the screw. The vent should still turn freely, but the nuts won't come off without tools if you did it properly.

Do not use plated or plain steel hardware. These will contaminate your food.

How to replace exterior door handle on the back passenger side. What tool is needed?

there are two rivets that you will have to drill out. on the inside of the door, there is a threaded clip that holds the linkage in, you will have to open it (it opens like a door, it may be a little stubborn, but it will open). then put your new handle on, and then the linkage back in, and snap the clip back in place. you will need one of the bigger pop rivet guns because the rivets are 1/4 ones. also, when you go to rivet the handle back on, tape some cardboard under the handle. that way if the rivet gun drops after it snaps off the rivet, it will not scratch the door. hope this helps you.

Plastic Guide rail on sunroof broke

I just purchased a used yukon xl. Both plastic rails are broken.
Solution: Drill out the blind rivet. Start with 1/8 drill bit and remove the head off. The plastic broken part can now be removed.
Install a blind rivet through the new plastic rail and use the rivet gun to squeeze the rivet in place. Make sure it is the right length.
get a grip gage and determine the right rivet for it.
very easy job.

Broken recoil on 10 briggs the recoil rivets came out of housing

I have had the same problem and use a pop rivet gun with steel rivets when reassembling the housings. Frequently these rivets get loose, & need drilled out & changed. I am assuming that the rivet holes in the housing are not elongated or you might have to drill to the next larger size rivet to install them. Hope this helps you, Rick
