Zephyr AK2100AS ss - lights in front only

Is there a way to aim the lights to the back instead of straight down since the back of the stove top remains dark?  They are halogen lights but if they could be turned  just a little it would help.  Thank you. Alice

Remote doesn't work straight on

If your remote was dropped it may have re-aimed the IR light. There is a lens at the front of the remote that aims the light out like a flashlight (even though we can't see Infra Red light.) If the remote works good by aiming it down at a 45 degree angle, I would live with it. The alternatives would be to buy another remote or take your remote apart and try to re-aim the lens.

The handle leans back when in the off position instead of straight up and down.

Most likely the plastic piece under the screw is broken. Inspect and replace if it is.

The handle leans back when in the off position instead of straight up and down

with most taps, the handles are usually held on with a screw, undo the screw fully, gently pull the handle off, re-align to the position you want and do it back up again.

What are the best settings on the 4 dials for the straight stitch? Do the ones on top have to match the wheel settings below? Thanks from a novice

#1- tension settings, set this to "5" and leave it
#2- width control setting, 0 would be straight while 5 would be the full width of the stitch (would make a wide zig zag)
#3- Length control, larger the number, longer the stitch. (usually you will set this from 1.5 to 2.5)
#4- Stitch selector, match up the number with the stitch you want to sew. If you want to use the lower row of stitches (14-25) set the length dial to "ss". (ss stands for stretch stitch, such as for #14 (three rows of straight dashed lines) instead of just sewing one stitch forward, the machine will sew back and forth giving you a stretchy stitch/stronger)
Let me know if you need more help :) Chris

Tappan stove model # 30-3053-23-02. How do I remove the stove top?

For Tappan stove model 30-3053-23-02.

Each burner (4) is mounted to the stove top with three 4.5mm hex screws. All 12 screws must be removed, which is easier said than done. In my case, of the 12, 6 heads snapped off. The other 6 heads had to be drilled out. The metal is very hard (tempered from long exposure to high heat?), so use a carbide/diamond high-speed drill bit (1/8" or 3/16").

The front corners of the stove top are each held by a clip. After removal of the burner mount screws (or heads at least), lift straight up on each front corner of the stove top to release the top from the clip. An alternate method is to use a screwdriver as a lever to pry the corner off the clip. Once released from the clips, the front pulls up, while the back is "hinged" (like lifting an auto hood). Using a stubby phillips screwdriver, unscrew one of the back hinges. At this point, the stove top can be lifted off.

If you are fortunate, the burners were unmounted by simply removing the screws. But if they broke off or had to be drilled out, it seems the best thing to do is just purchase new burner assemblies ($20-$30 each). In either case, also buy new screws specifically for mounting the burners.

Opel astra headlight adjustment

two screws on each headlight control the direction the headlights are aimed. One screw, usually at the top but sometimes below the headlight, adjusts the headlight up and down. The other screw, located to one side, controls the headlight from right to left. Turning the appropriate screw one direction or the other will change the direction the headlight points.
In order to aim your headlights you need to have a flat vertical surface you can aim your headlights at in front of a level surface on which to park the car. If your driveway is level your garage door is the perfect place to aim your headlights.
The tools you will need for this job are simple. Masking tape is used to mark where the headlights are to be aimed and a screwdriver is needed to adjust the headlights. A tape measure will be necessary to measure the distance of the vehicle to the surface you're using to check the aim and to measure the up and down distances from your marks

I need to remove the top on my whirlpool gold gas range. It's model gs395legq3. It's about 9 years old. I got the clips in the front un-done but cannot figure out whats going on in the back. Has to be some...

How to remove the top on a whirlpool gold gas range model GS395LEGQ3, bought around the year 2000.

Please reall ALL directions before beginning. I suggest EVERYONE try step 2 before trying step 1, but not before reading ALL directions first!

First and most important shut gas valve off to your stove and unplug it.

Second and equally important, you MUST remove ALL sealed burners. You CANNOT get the top up(without messing something up)until you get the burners off. It is very easy to do. Just get a philips screwdriver or better yet a square drive bit that fits. If the screws look a little rusty(they probably do)insert your screwdriver or square bit and LIGHTLY tap the handle a few times, sort of like your pounding a nail. This helps to loosen the screws. Next just remove screws and carefully remove the burners by lifting STRAIGHT UP and gently twisting back and forth. Be watchful of the ceramic ignitors.

For the next step it is easier if you can pull out your stove so the front is about 5" in front of the counter-top. You MUST be careful that when pulling out the stove you don't kink/break/bend the gas line that goes to the stove. If your not comfortable you can pull out your stove without messing the gas line up it should still be possible to get the range top up but may be a bit more difficult.


1. Pull stove out so the front is about 5 inches out from your counter-top. Now gently pry the front of the range-top up and wedge something in there to hold it up(I used the handle on a plastic spatuala). You will only be able to pry it up about 1/4"-1/2". Use a flashlight and locate the clips holding the top down. They are located on either side about 3" in from the front. Use a butter knife and push the clip IN towards the center of the stove to release the range top. Once these clips are released you just have to lift the top up as it is on hinges. Just be careful and watch the wiring for your burner ignitors.

2. In order to get the top up you have to wiggle the front of the range top side to side in order to loosen the clips holding the range top. Try wiggling the top side to side and lifting at the same time. Hopefully the top will come loose from the clips then just lift up being careful of the ignitor wiring. If it does not come loose you may be able to use the butter knife method mentioned in step 1 but you will have to do it from the front of the stove which will be a bit more difficult.

All work is performed at your own risk. I am not licensed and take no responsibility for any work done by others.

Remove a whirlpool over the range microwave oven

Jim here. In cabinet above microwave, locate 2 mounting bolts.
Place a box on the stove top to support the microwave once the mounting bolts are removed (you may wish to cover the box with a thick towel or small throw rug).
1. Unplug microwave.
2. Remove both mounting bolts from top of microwave (they secure it to the overhead cabinet).
3. With microwave front angled down onto box, pull some of power cord out of hole (to provide some moving space).
4. With microwave hand supported, remove box from stove top (a second set of hands would be helpful here).
5. HARD PART- detach top of microwave back from wall mounting plate by placing a hand under the bottom rear of the microwave and pushing up. (Wall mounting plate is screwed into the wall behind the microwave and provides both top and bottom support to the back of the microwave.)
6. Lower front of microwave until you can see about a 1-inch clearance between the top-rear of the microwave and the cabinet above it.
7. Firmly lift the microwave straight up and then bring forward. It should be free of the wall mounting plate.
