The Knex website has building help for this problem. There answer is as follows:

Make sure all rods and connectors are fully hooked together, especially the blue and gray connectors. Even one peice not fully hooked together can twist the model just enough to jam the gears. (You may have it hooked together correctly prior to jam problems so it is good to check since I found a loose on holding the motor.) The chain links need to all be attached in the same direction, and fully hooked. The chain also needs to be on the tower with the hooks facing down and in as the chain runs on the outside of the tower. (Chain should be outside on the front and inside in the back with the 5 yellow bar side in the front.) Check that all gears are positioned correctly according to the instructions and the teeth facing the correct way. If you are still unable to get the seat to drop, you may remove the top yellow cross rod that the chain runs over - the model will also work with this piece removed.

I did all of these steps with my son and his still had trouble dropping all the time. It still seems light so the seat didn't have enough weight to drop with gravity during the non-moving cycle of the orange half gear. We decided to tape on 2 marble passengers to see if that helped. It did!!! When searching for other solutions, I noticed a UTube video that added people also so this seems to be a common solution. Try it or some other light weight added and see if it solves your problem.

Comfort harmony swing wont swing


Is your swing still under guarantee? If so, you should take it back to the shop where you bought it or contact the manufacturer directly. When my baby swing broke, I took it to the local handyman and he was able to fix it for a very reasonable price. Good luck.

Whirlpool capicator 189-227MFD how can I tell if its good


Hello,
To check the capacitor disconnect the wires from it and use a meter set to ohms..if using a digital meter set it to a high ohms setting,place one meter lead on each wire terminal and the display should constantly be in motion in as much the display will go from 1000 omhs to 20,000 ohms and just continue that if the cap. is good and the display will stay the same and never change if the cap. is bad
On a analog meter the needle will swing to zero and rapidly go back if the cap. is good and will swing to zero ohms and stay there and the needle is will not drop if the capacitor is bad.

Alternator


Drop the drivebelt by swinging the tension-idler with a crescent wrench and popping the belt off the alternator pulley.

Dis-connect the battery.

Roll the electrical connection boot back to get access to the connectors and remove.

Back out the top mounting bolt (it may be stubborn, don't be afraid to put weight on it) and swing unit out to get easier access to the lower mount.
Drop the new unit in place and start the lower and upper mount bolts...re-connect the electricals...tighten the mounting bolts.
Swing the tension-idler to re-mount the belt.

re-connect the battery.

How do I remove the rear brake calipers on a 05 victory hammer motorcycle. I dont see any bolt heads at all.


On my 06 kingpin, there is a single pin that is held in place with a retaining pin. Take out retaining pin, slide out long pin, then pads slide right out. Be sure to press calipers open with screwdriver prior to removing old pads and be careful to not scratch the rotors

I cannot find the swing button on my remote for my LG LS-D2461HS


The swing button is usually on the right side of the remote and has three little arrows pointing toward an arc or half circle line with arrow up and down. If you press this once it will go on auto swing, you can wait for the louvre to get to the right position and then press it again to stop in that position. You can also on some models change the left/right airflow direction in the same manner or manually direct the airflow to one side. If all fails, you can gently manually position the louvre up or down.

Problem getting out a level


Mission Three: Union Station
Head through the hall and up the stairs and you will come out to the train yard. Hang a left and then enter the open door on the train. Go through the car and kill the enemies that appear and head out the other side. Enter the large building and a scene with more Kestrels will play. After the big bang, you are in for a tough battle with another Kestral and a few armed punks. After you get Kestrel down to the ¼ health mark, she will take off to a platform high above. Head forward to the ramp leaning against the train and climb it. Go left and slide across the rail to the train across from it. Make a left and run to the end of the train and jump to the pole. Swing to the pipe and climb up. Back jump to the next pole and swing your way over to the platform Kestrel is on.

After the scene, head back down and across the ground to the doorway on the far side at the other end. Enter it and follow the hallway through until you reach the set of stairs on the other side of the sprinklers. Follow the stairs up and then follow through the hallway until a scene plays that shows a catwalk collapse. Head up the stairs there and take out the punks and then make a right at the top to head up more stairs. When you reach the top, swing across the bars to the next platform and then halfway down the stairs. Jump to the staircase on the left and head up to the next platform and more poles to swing across.

Enter the vent at the end and follow it through to a large room you’ll drop into. When the Kestrel shuts the gate, you need to open it up. This part can get a bit tricky. What you need to do is toss a body into the electrical panels on each side of the door and make sure you have a body on each panel at the same time. When you do, the gate will open for you to go through. The easiest way is to use your hook and throw the bodies into the panels. You can try kicking them in but it takes a long time and getting two up like that will not work quick enough. Use the hook to throw them into them and then go through after it opens. Follow the opening in the wall around and through until you reach the staircase. Head up and take out the punks there.
Continue up the next set of stairs and make your way to the end of the corridor. Go through the door on the left and enter the hallway. Head left and drop down the hole at the end. Follow the next corridor along to a set of stairs and go up and up and up to the top floor. Head through the door and go up another set of stairs. Take out the punks here and then you’ll be in a room with a large window. After the scene hop through and head to the left and around the corner to the door there. Kill all the enemies in sight and then a scene will play as a guy comes through the door there. Kill him and then go through the door to trigger another scene.

Head through the door on the left after the scene and head through the room to the right. Drop through the opening and head down the stairs to the ground floor of the club. Look up to the right and there will be a large neon sign that says Strages. Target it and then toss up your hook to grab it and pull it down. When it crashes down, run through the door there and you will come to the dance floor. When the punks attack, you will need to toss one onto each of the four speakers in the corners. When you have a punk in each speaker, the dj booth will blow and you can escape the dance floor. Make your way up the stairs and again until you come to the floor with a doorway directly across from you. Enter there and take out the enemies inside.

Target the ceiling and then pull it down with your hook. Jump up the debris and head down the corridor to the opening at the end. Go to the fence directly in front of you and start wall climbing up to the top. Jump over to the closest scaffolding and take out the punk there. Go to the corner of it and rail slide down the pipe and again on the next one. Jump to grab the pole and swing over to the next platform. Make your way to the ramp and run down it to the catwalk against the wall. Run to the right and head up the spiral stairs. Kill the rest of the punks and then enter the gear room. After the scene climb up the pole in the room with your back away from the gear. Back jump off to the flat gear and land on it.

From there jump up and grab the pole and then swing over onto the next gear. Jump from that gear to the right and then from there to the pole above. Swing up the poles and then over to the gear beside the weight going up and down. Climb the pole with your back to the weight and wait for it to lower. Jump back on to it and ride it up. Now you will have a little scene with Ephemera. After the scene, you will battle her for a little while until another scene plays. After the speech Ephemera gives, the mission will end.

Directions to replace gas valve - Kenmore dryer model 41790042990


If you have a 2 piece front panel just pry the bottom part open from the top, right under the door. It will swing down and lay flat. You can remove the gas valve assembly now. It is on the left. If you have a one piece front. remove the lint filter and then the two screws there. Be VERY careful not to drop anything down the hole. (It will ruin the fan.) Pry the top off by using a butter knife or thin screw driver to push in the clips in the front corners. It will swing open from the front. remove the wires from the door switch. Use a 5/16 socket to remove the screws holding the front panel in place. Pull out and up the bottom is held by clips. Be careful not to let the drum fall all the way out. When you reassemble the dryer before you put the top down , turn the drum a full turn to make sure that the felt seal at the back is seated properly.
