If this is a Makita Mitre saw the switch requires 2 operations to engage. First you should see a round button on handle, you need to depress the button and then pull the trigger. I would recommend doing this with the tool unplugged first so you get the feel for it. Second the release button is on the right hand side of the saw, what you need to do is push down on the saw head some and PULL out on the round pin to release. I would recommend also that you go to Makitatools.com and type in your model number and download a owners manual so you can see exactly how to use the tool. Let me know if you need any more help please.

My sweeper pump started making a loud noise yesterday , it is still running but the noise is so loud that I can not keep it running long I dont know anything about pools my husband always took care of it...


Thank you for posting your question here on Fixya.com.

I am sorry to hear of your husbands recent passing.


A pump can cause loud noise for several reasons. Some noise is normal with a pump but when it is very noisy it is indicating a potential problem. If the seal is damaged it may whine and then it usually starts to leak(sometimes a seal leak allows water to get into the bearing at the pump end and reduce its lifespan). If the bearings are damages they will make excessive noise before doing other bad things. These are the most common noises indicating a problem.

If I hear one of these whines I usually make a mental note and let the customer know there is a potential issue. I give them the option of letting it go until it either starts to leak or worse or fixing it right away. Sometimes it operates normally for quite a while while other times it fails very soon.

The motor can be replaced in this pump and therefore cost less. If you have a Leslies pool supply store in your area you can take it to them and if they are not busy they usually fix it while you wait if they have all the parts. They usually only charge you for the parts to repair it.

The only problem you may have is removing the pump and reinstalling it. You might want to find a friend, relative or neighbor to help you do these two tasks. If this happens you can see what tools they use and how it is done so you can do similar things later.


If this answer does not resolve your issue, please comment with additional information before rating the answer. Positive feedback is especially appreciated once your problem is solved! Thank you.

When sawing against a guide the back of saw moves away from guide can not hold it against it. Also center of blade around arbor gets hot and builds up gum. no looseness in bearing and saw turns free???


hi there
this happens alot with circular saws it usually means that the saw is out of alignment back to front this makes it ******* the tool because your going strait and the tool isnt its fighting it self ******* the motor and whole tool this happens easily setting it down hard throwing it in truck with other tools etc.. the olnly thing you can do to fix this is use solid work bench with tool unplugged lift safety set blade up against the bench then measure front and back from the bench this will tell you if its out of line if so you will need to take it to a tool repair shop to get it fixed
hope i have helped you with your problem thank you have a great day

My husband inherited a Ryobi 9" band saw BS900 when his father passed away. We have no manual and are trying to tighten the blade. Can you help us--he's helping his grand son with a cub scout car.


Tensioning a blade on a band saw usually means moving the upper driven wheel upwards. Remove/open the upper wheel cover and look for the lock bolts and the bolt that will jack the wheel upwards to tighten the blade. Loosen off the lock bolts, tension the blade - it needs to be pretty tight with virtually no sideways movement - and tighten the lock bolts. Replace the covers and lock the covers. Make sure that the wall plug is removed from the socket before you proceed with this operation - band saws know no mercy.

Where do i purchase chain saw oil for electric chain saw


Hi
It would be helpful to know where durban is. In most parts of America "Bar Oil" is available at many hardware stores, and certainly at any chain saw dealership.
Oddly enough, many "Green" aware saw operators are now using vegetable oil as a lubricant. So Canola oil, Corn oil, or any other fairly thick, heavy vegetable oil will work fine.
The oil is pumped onto the bar at the top of where it exits the motor housing, and then circulates around the bar. Much of it is lost on the first pass the chain makes through the wood. This is carried away in the chip stream coming out of the cut. On many gas saws, you can see oil being slung off the chain when you rev the motor up.
The green feeling is, all this oil is left where we cut. Are we leaving a biodegradable oil behind? Or a contaminant that will take years to degrade.

Stay safe, keep the blade sharp - use the protective gear as directed.

I need directions on how to replace my ink cartridge on a HP officejet v40. My husband purchased this printer, but I don't know when, and he has since passed away. The support on the phone wouldn't help...


Hi, normally when you open the printer the ink cartridges will go to the centre and you can unclick the cartridges to replace them. On some printers you need to press a button which brings the cartridges to the centre so you can replace the cartridges.
