Question about Nelson LR Rain Train Traveling Sprinkler 1865

Open Question

How do you take apart the cast iron housing of the rain train

I have removed the screws from the bottom of the housing, the tee fitting for the sprinkler arms and the forward/reverse selector. I can get the two halves of the transmission body about 1/16 of an inch apart but something is resisting their separating.I believe it is the water line that feeds up into the rotating sprinkler arm tee but I find nothing to facilitate any part removal.

If it's going backwards, and assuming you didn't take it apart and put it together wrong, then the arms aren't going in the right direction. Looking down from the top, my unit should be moving clockwise if it's set up correctly. In any case, switch it so the water pushes the arms in the other direction. the transmission is pretty straightforward - if it's going in the wrong direction then the arms are spinning in the wrong direction.

I need to get into the houseing part to oil are clean it does not follow the hose . It starts to then stops.


Here's how to open the motor assembly.
1) Use a 5/16 nut driver (or flat screwdriver) and remove 5 screws holding body to motor assembly.
2) Use pliers to hold the worm bearing assembly where the tee screws in. Hold worm bearing and remove tee.
3) Use a 3/8 inch allen wrench to remove the worm bearing assembly. The allen wrench is placed in the same hole where the tee was located. (Removing the worm bearing assembly allows you to separate the upper motor housing from the lower housing.)

Use care when removing the top and bottom halves as sometimes the small flat washers tends to fall off the shaft when you open sections.

When screwing worm bearing assembly into the lower motor housing, you are screwing brass into plastic. If over tightened, the housing will split. Rule of thumb: tighten until it feels snug then go a 1/4 of a turn.

Why won't my sprinkler turn. The water comes out fine, but it won't rotate. Mine is a plastic model, and I can't figure out how to get inside.

IM ROUGHING IN PLUMBING FOR A SHOWER TOILET AND SINK. 8 BY6 BATHROOM FROM SCRATCH CAST IRON STACK ALREADY CUT AROUND REMOVE CEMENT SHOULD THE WHOLE INCLUDING CLEAN OUT , REPLACE IT WITH PVC OR JUST CUT IN...


always replace cast iron if its not a problem to do so, especially if it looks rough or is leaking or rusting. there are simple special black neoprene boots used to connect cast iron to pvc and do not require anything but a screwdriver, no slovents or sealers are required. always check for leaks if you make an underground connection before you cement the spot back up. its better to use gravel to fill this area in if your particular situation will allow.

I have a older home with very slow hot water flow. Is there anything I can do myself? The pipes are cast iron.


Have you tried removing the aerators from the faucets and cleaning out the sediment. You can also drain down the water tank to try and remove any sediment that has settled in the bottom.

Planetary Cover removal


Using flat screwdriver, remove upper main shaft cover screws (3 of them) to expose shaft nut. Using 3/4" wrench, remove nut and washer on top of main shaft. Using 9/16" wrench, remove double nuts and washers on both small shafts (the double bearing-retainer plate can stay screwed on). Using flat screwdriver, carefully pry stainless drip ring from lower housing (it's just press-fit). Using 3/4" wrench, remove acorn nut and locknut from bottom of main shaft (hold on to the housing, it's gonna drop down and it's HEAVY). Using flat screwdriver, remove cast iron cover hold-down screws (4). Place wood block over end of main shaft bottom to protect threads, and tap upward with a hammer. Don't go crazy with hammer, top housing could go flying. It may take several taps (it's on tight). Increase force slowly so as to minimize chance of damage. Prying out the two press caps from upper housing with a flat screwdriver will give you a place to stick your fingers to lift cover off once it's tapped loose.That'll get the top housing off. But planetary shaft isn't coming out without complete transmission dis-assembly. Better get a book, or better still, hire a pro. Just be careful with Hobart factory repairmen. I've had a VERY bad experience with a VERY highly-paid factory tech. You may have better luck than me, but I'd ask around at a few restaurants and search the 'net for an independant repairman. They tend to work harder for less money than factory guys, and take more pride in their work. Hope this helps!

Sunbeam 4214 Clothes Iron with Retractable Cord won't heat.


first, i'll apologize for not posting pictures with this, but i didn't have a camera handy when i "fixed" it. i'll do my best to explain the sitch.

i also have a sunbeam 4124 whose retractor was jammed...the cord would not release more than two feet or so, nor would it retract. i was able to disassemble it, but broke some internal retaining clips meant to hold the retractor housing to the iron. WARNING!! do not attempt this if you do not want to void your warranty. i can only assume that the manufacturer did not want you to disassemble the cord return housing and as such, hid the retaining clips where it would be impossible to disengage them. i got lucky and only broke one set of the retaining clips....if you carry on, you stand a chance of breaking both sets, which will not allow you to reattach the retractor housing to your iron securely. best thing to do is call sunbeam and have them send you a new iron, but if you're bent on fixing it yourself, here's how i did it (you'll need one medium philips head screwdriver):

1) remove the rubber feet from the bottom of the iron. this will expose two screw holes (the third foot under the retractor button has no screw; this is the side where the reaining clips are buried).
2) remove the two screws
3) WARNING! this is where you have a good chance of breaking your iron. pull the base of the iron really hard, rocking it from side to side. there are two sets of retaining clips recessed in the housing of the iron. the button will come with the base of the iron, the entire cord retraction assembly is self-contained. you can carefully use a screwdriver to pry the two halves apart. also, be careful not to pull too hard as the electrical connections between the iron and the retractor assembly has only about 2 inches of slack, though the connections are just wire-nut'd together and could be reassembled in a pinch.
4) after the retractor housing is separated from the iron, remove the housing cap by unscrewing the four screws.
5) carefully separate the two halves of the housing; the spring may be loose inside and could snap out at you.

here's where my iron was broken....the coil spring is contained by a plastic tray that had snapped, probably due to somebody pulling the cord out too hard. a section of the tray had jammed itself into the inside of the housing, immobilizing the winding mechanism. my only recourse was to completely remove the spring and permanently extend the cord all the way (not one of the features i bought the iron for anyway, so what the heck). PLEASE be careful unwinding the spring if you have to do it....wouldn't want anybody poking out an eye inadvertantly.

6) reassemble the retractor housing by screwing the cap back on with the four screws
7) if you're lucky enough to keep one set of retainer clips, snap the base of the iron back on and reattach the two screws located under the feet.
8) rubber pads back in and voila!

hope this helps!
