Want to clean out hard H20 deposits -how do bottom element?

I unscrewed abut 8 screws to remove the top round thing, but can't figure out what hold bottom circular thing on. I can feel all he muck and disgusting stuff under there with my finger, so I know it need to come off to clean under there so water can circulate. I can't seem to remove the piece that looks similar to a rulette wheel (which is full of slimy food debri) either. There is a gray plastic bolt that looks like it turns with a metal 1/4" bolt in the middle of it but these parts are not moving either way and it very difficult to hold onto the gray plastic bolt as the whole unit spins while trying to remove the metal one. It looks like this piece needs to come off to access the underneath to clean it.

    A large glass pan lid broke in my dishwasher and I would like to get all the small glass pieces out that have fallen in the "roulette" wheel looking round part. The dishwasher doesn't work worth a darn with that glass in there! I am able to remove the rotating arm, but do not see that I can lift the "roulette" part out even if I remove all the screws I can see. Please help.

How do i remove the bottom center piece that the spray arm came out of?

The arm spins on a tube that is held by a round screw that should only be finger tight. That tube is screwed into a boss on the bottom of the dishwasher. You can do two things.
1. remove the whole lot and then unscrew the top screw by holding the tube with grips and another set of grips on the top screw.

2. Tighten the screw on top until it becomes firm, and then unscrew it.

If the dishes are not coming clean it may be that the jets in the spray bar are clogged with fluff and debris.

We have been having issues with our model where there is dirty sand deposited inside of glasses and dishes.
You need a torque wrench for a triple square torque screw82782a1.png to unscrew in the bottom filter to take it off.
I would say about 4-5 layers of items to remove- but remove these and clean them out as well as the top blade which should pop right out. Food particles can get stuck in there also.

Hi i have a hp pavilion lap top ze4315. i am

First, get a small Phillips head screwdriver, a credit card, and something like an egg carton to store all the screws you'll pull out. You'll also need something to clean the dust off the heatsink and fans--a can of compressed air is by far the best choice for this.

Note: READ ALL THE DIRECTIONS BEFORE YOU START. This is not an easy thing to do, especially your first time. Be careful. This is not a quick job either; I'd budget at least two hours of solid work, and it may take the whole afternoon.

Step 1: Shut the machine down, unplug it, and remove the battery. It might also be wise to back up your important data.

Step 2: Open up the cover on the bottom of the laptop where the WiFi card sits. Carefully unplug the antenna cables from this card.

Step 3: On the back of the laptop there should be several screws near the display hinge. Unscrew these and remove them. Then open the display all the way until it is flat. Use the credit card to help you remove the trim above the keyboard where the power button is located. This trim is held in by clips and will make several unnerving popping sounds when you pull it off. Just be careful and everything should work out fine.

Step 4: Unscrew the keyboard and carefully lift it up. Follow the ribbon cable on the bottom of the keyboard to where it connects to the motherboard. Unplug it (carefully!) and set the keyboard aside. Also unscrew the circuit board where the power button is located and remove that; it is also connected via a cable that needs to be unplugged. Also unscrew and unplug the speakers.

Step 5: Close the screen and turn the computer over. Unscrew all the screws on the bottom of the machine. There should be about 10-15, I think. Make sure to remove the screws stuck under the little rubber plugs along the front of the computer. A couple of these hold the hard drive in place; remove the hard drive. Under the hard drive there are a few screws in the case; unscrew those as well. Look around on the sides of the laptop; there may be a few screws on the sides as well. They need to come out too.

Step 6: Turn the machine back over and open the screen.Unplug the display cable and unscrew the four screws that hold the hinge on the display to the computer. Set the display aside. You may have to unscrew the little circuit boards near the hinges; those are the WiFi antennas.

Step 7: Remove all the screws in the metal plate underneath the keyboard. Also unplug any relevant ribbon cables that are connected to the motherboard and the top case (the palm rest part) of the laptop. The most notable of these is the trackpad connector, if you can get to it. You should also pull the wifi antenna connectors up through the machine now.

Step 8: Carefully lift the top case up, using the credit card to help you unsnap any clips holding it in place. Go slowly and don't force it because you may have missed a screw, either on the bottom or the top of the laptop. Also watch out for any connectors you missed. Remove the top case and set it aside.

Step 9: Unscrew the heatsink carefully. This is probably attached to the fan, so be careful. Also unplug the fan-but be VERY careful when you do this. Once I accidentally pulled the entire connector off and had to resolder it onto the motherboard. Take my word for it, that is not fun. Unscrew the fan, and you should be able to lift the heatsink and fan out to clean them.

Step 10: Follow these directions in reverse to put the machine back together. Go slowly and make sure you don't forget any screws or connectors. If you do, go back and find out where they go.

Good luck!

2 discs stuck in console

WOW!!! I am so sorry that this happened. Nintendo products are really hard to open. If you cant wedge the game out with a small screwdriver, dont worry about the game, here are the directions on opening it. Just copy and paste to word so you can see the whole thing easily.

How to open your Wii Console Step by Step Instructions

To disassemble:
  1. Flip the device upside down and remove the small silver Phillips screw. Once out, remove the battery tray from the console.
  2. Next remove the rubber foot directly above this battery tray. Also remove the three square white stickers from the bottom of the Wii. The rubber foot and the sticker are covering hidden screws. Figure 3 provides a shot of where these screws are located. NOTE
    Hiding screws under stickers and rubber pads is a common method used by electronics manufactures to help increase the aesthetics of their devices, as well as prevent people from easily locating screws and taking apart their products.
  3. Unscrew the two Triwing screws and three Phillips screws from the bottom of the Wii.
Figure 3 - Bottom Screws

  1. Flip the Wii over onto its right side. Locate and remove the two rear rubber feet and the two rectangle stickers near the faceplate.
  2. Remove the two silver Triwing screws in the holes and remove the two black Triwing screws on the faceplate (Figure 4).
Figure 4 - Left side screw locations

  1. Flip the Wii upright and carefully remove the two socket covers. They come right out with a little wiggling.
  2. Remove the three black Phillips screws from the black plate (Figure 5). Note the one closest to the faceplate is the longest and will need to go back into that hole when putting the Wii back together.

Figure 5 - Top black plate screw locations

  1. With the screws removed, carefully pull off the faceplate of the front of the Wii. You will need to disconnect the red/black wire plug from the Wii to remove the faceplate completely. Figure 6 shows what is hiding under the faceplate.

wiifig06.jpg Figure 6 - Under the Wii faceplate
  1. Remove black plate from memory/controller socket area.
Remove two silver Phillips and two silver Triwing screws from memory/controller socket area (Figure 7). wiifig07.jpg Figure 7 - Topside screw locations
Lay the Wii on left side (with the ATI and Nintendo logo facing you) and slowly work the right side cover of the console off the device.
This will take a little bit of force. If something appears to be stuck, double check to ensure you removed all the screws.
Locate and remove four screws holding DVD reader in place. Two are located in plain site in the middle of the unit. Two are located near the front of the Wii inside the DVD unit (Figure 8). wiifig08.jpg Figure 8 - The insides of the Wii
Slowly tilt the DVD player upward toward top of Wii. There are two wires that need to be disconnected before you can safely remove the DVD unit. One is a plug type of connector that only requires a little tug. The other is a circuit strip connector that requires you to lift the brown catch, which will release the pressure holding the strip in place (Figure 9). Do not break this!

My Mr Coffee espresso machine steamer is not working.

On my machine, the vent from the heating element to the steamer control was clogged. I am a trained professional, do this at your own risk! I did the following because I tried everything else and I knew that the unit was clogged at the aperature from the hot water element tank. Try to unclog it another way before doing this!

1. Unplug from the wall outlet!!! (don't skip this or you might die!)
2. Remove accessories, water holder, bottom tray, etc.
3. Remove the rubber feet and unscrew all of the screws you can find. There are some hard to find screws but it is possible to remove them all with the right screwdrivers. I broke the last screw stud thing on mine because I couldn't find the right tool for that last screw. Once I got it apart, I figured out how to do it. I cant remember now though. Just break it if you want. There are plenty of other screws holding this thing together.
4. Remove the top.
5. Follow the smallest tube to the heating element (looks like a tiny hot water heater).
6. Unbolt the tube fitting at the heating element. You may loosen the other couplers, but dont completely unscrew them, and DO NOT TUG on the small plastic tube. Once you unscrew the brass fitting, take a flashlight and look in the hole that leads into the heating tank. If yours is like mine, it will be clogged with white goo. My goo was from hard water. Take a pipe cleaner and ram it through the goo. Try to get as much goo out as you can, but it is ok to get some down into the tank.
7. Put everything back together carefully. You might want to replace the small O ring at the fitting if it is worn out.
8. Run vinegar through the system, or CLR or some other solvent that can break down the hard water residue. Plug in the unit and flush the system with cleaner but make sure to get it all out. Run alot of clean water through it.

** you might be able to just run CLR or Vinegar or some other cleaner through the system, without disassembly. I am not an expert in these things, please find out what is safe to use before trying it. I am not responsible if you get poisoned!

Hope this helps some!

Water Level

my first response would be to say that you need to put 8 oz. less water in - but that's the obvious and somewhat comical solution. But here's what you need to do:

Take the top cover off (1 std. screw on top) and pull the brown water tray out. turn the unit on its side and clean the heating elements! You most likely have huge calcium deposits in the water tank. Scrape the elements but be careful not to bend the thin wires leading out of the tank (they're paperclip thin and will break if bent back and forth.

After cleaning the elements and tank, remove the drip spout (turn counter clockwise to unscrew) and clean, then clean the red tube hose in the center by pushing a wire (coat hangar thick) down through the middle.

Reassemble and pour two, almost full, pots of water into the tank, this is the default level needed to start brewing. When you pour your third pot in, that is the amount of coffee you will get minus whatever your filter soaks up. Hope this helps - good luck!

How to clean??

you'll need a phillips screwdriver and a small crescent wrench. start by unplugging the unit. unscrew the sprayhead. remove the small hexnut from the sprayhead tube. remove the two screws from the top cover and lift up the cover. if there is a warmer element on it, remove and mark the two wires to the element. use the back end of the crescent wrench and unscrew the brass nut in the reservoir. save the fiber gasket from under the tray. the pot holds two complete potfuls of water so be careful. mark all the wires and where they go and remove them one at a time from the top of the canister. remove all the screws or nuts that hold the top to the canister and remove the top. the thermostat bulb goes into one of the plastic bushings along with rubber packing washers in the top. unscrew the plastic bushing, the packings and the thermostat bulb. pour out all the water from the canister. there's a dip tube that goes to the bottom and is fastened to the water inlet pipe on the top part. this may have some scale build up on it. scrape off this deposit. in the bottom of the canister you will find a mineral scale which must be removed. a small sharp chisel without the use of a hammer can be used to remove this scale. while you have the machine apart, use the long steel spring to clean out the water tube that goes to the sprayhead.

Hot water barely dribbles into the tub. I checked the line and it was full of hard water deposits. I cleaned the filter on the hose, but I guess some of the deposits got through. I can't figure out what...

Your Water inlet Valve is going to need replaced. To get into your machine you have to remove the two phillips head screws on both sides of the top control area, they are either going to be on the front side of the control panel area or on the back side. If they are on the back they sit into a little grove, they will not come all the way out, just ensure that you unscrewed them enough to be loose from the lid panel.

Once those screws have been removed that whole control top piece will literally flip over backwards,(not by itself LOL) That will expose the two brass clips that hold the whole cabinet to the back panel. Use a flat head screw driver and insert it into the front side opening of the clip and push the top of the driver back, to "pop" the clip out of the cabinet, do that to both clips on the top there. The last thing you are going to do in unplug the lid switch plug. It is right in the middle, the only thing there you can unplug from the cabinet. Now just pull the cabinet forward and few inches and look for the water inlet valve, the piece your hoses connect too.

We hope this helps you out with your repair. If you have anymore questions or run into any issues feel free to post back. Thank you

all bunn-o-matics have a cleaning spring that goes into the water tube once you unscrew the sprayhead. if you want to take the unit apart go this route. unplug the unit. remove the sprayhead. remove the two screws atop the unit and there's a brass fitting that screws into the canister's top. remove this then remove the tray. when you have the top off you'll see the canister that holds the water. it holds three potfulls of water. there's two wires that go down around the canister. this is the warm element. on top of the canister is a round dime like device. this is the brew sensor and disconnects the main element when a pot is brewed. in one corner you'll see the thermostat. this determines the brew pot temperature. there's a cappillary that goes down inside the canister. where the sprayhead is is a nut. remove this and the whole canister can be removed. you'll find after you remove the top of the canister that deposits are hard caked along the inside walls of the canister where the warmer element is located. scrape this off. replacement parts can be had at the bunn site.
