Sand the area on bottom of piece along with areas surrounding the broken piece. Get another small piece of plastic that is large enough to cover the broken piece and adjacent areas and apply the glue to that using a good epoxy for adhesion. Let it set up and it will hold - trust me.
There are two main pieces to the front panel for the GFDN240EL1WW dryer-- the plastic panel and the circuit board. The actual replacement part is: Control Panel WE19M1687. The panel can be purchased for from places like partselect.com or repairclinic.com or Amazon or even EBay, etc. for $100-$200+.
The power button is just a piece of plastic mounted to another piece of plastic; it is not electronic. When pushed, it presses against the circuit board, which then turns the unit on/off. When the power button breaks, it typically means the little plastic button has broken off from the plastic panel. Most likely, the problem is the mount point for the button and the button is actually re-usable.
A cheaper quick-fix is to:
Remove top screw from back of the front panel
Remove main front knob from the panel
Remove screw from behind the front knob
Grab both sides of the front panel and push/pull up to remove the panel
Disconnect the block connector (power) from the circuit board after removing the panel
Locate the power button and mounting position
Inspect to see if it looks like you can glue the button back into place
Buy a small tube of loctite Stik'n Seal Ultra Universal Adhesive
Put some Stik'n Seal on the button mounting point for the power button (be generous)
Press the button onto the mounting point and hold for a few minutes
Add more Stik'n Seal around the edges of the mounting point and the button mount after you have held the button in place long enough so that it sticks
Let the whole thing dry for several hours (instructions on the adhesive say 24hrs
If you are worried about the button staying seated while the adhesive sets, you can always try tape it into place
When dry, replace the front panel by reversing the steps above used to remove the panel: connect the power block, slide the panel back into place, replace the front screw and knob, replace the top screw in the back of the panel
Best way to fix this is to take off the board that is over the power button and hot glue the button back in place. Only apply glue to the side of the button where it hinges - the other side needs to move freely or it won't contact the switch and operate correctly.
Hp's usually have a micro switch underneath the power button. You probably just broke a support arm or type device. You might be able to super glue the piece back together and make it work. In my experience, this usually works about 40 percent of the time. Usually by pushing to ******* the switch to break the plastic you could have possibly damaged the small micro switch. My best suggestion is take it apart and try the super glue fix first. Good Luck!!
i would do a tack together job on it,,
get some thick fuse wire and tiy it round inside the grill holes on the out side edge tiy each one together at about every inch apart around the grill that will hold the two grill's tight, then if you still have the broken plastic bits glue them back on using supper glue its cheeper that trying to get part that you may never find?
The button is made of plastic an one of the tabs i probably broken. If you have the skills to take your camera apart, you can fix it yourself. You can go to the YetiCam.com site, under manuals select Sony DSC-S600 Version 2 (Updated 2/17/07). This will tell you how to take the camera apart. Then you need to take some Super Glue and glue the two pieces back together. Be carful not to put too much glue on the pieces, or the switch will glue itself to the other pieces in the switch cover. Here are a couple of shots of the underside of the cover showing the switch piece. Red circles show the weak points.
Managed to fix it - actually was a 7680. Only do this if you:
1. have a small screwdriver set
2. are handy putting little delicate plastic pieces and springs together again
3. are prepared to face the possibility that you might break the shaver entirely
4. you are out of warranty so you don't care if you invalidate it
THE PROBLEM is caused by a small flat metal assembly that acts as a spring to hold the blue button in place. That is held by 4 small glue posts. The glue breaks down, the flat spring falls out of place and the blue button is no long in the right place.
TO OPEN UP THE SHAVER
a. gently remove the plastic cover around the electrical socket underneath, using a small flathead screwdriver to pry it open
b. the two metallic sides of the shaver can be pulled away starting at the bottom of the shaver
c. uncrew the four screws on the underside of the shaver
d. remove cutter block, battery/lcd block (make sure you don't lose the grommet around the lcd display
e. pull the spring and little plastic latch off the underside of the switch, make sure you remember how to put it back (took me almost 20 mins to figure out how to get that back afterwards)
f. slide the switch all the way up and pull it off the slide - you might need a little gentle force and a flathead screwdriver to coax it off - be careful you don't break anything here
g. remove the trimmer from the rest of the switch
h. put the blue piece back in place (mine had fallen out), then glue the flat metal spring back in place. I smeared brush-on crazy glue on the flat surfaces to hold it in place, I would imagine a four drops of reasonably strong glue on each of the glue posts would work best. Wait for the glue to dry and achieve strength.
i. slide the trimmer back into place, then the plastic latch and spring - this is the tricky part. Make sure the switch can slide on/off in all positions properly.
j. put the display/battery & cutter block back in place. put the back of the shaver on, hold the shaver together with your fingers and test the switch works in all positions without jamming. If so put the four screws back, followed by the metallic sides followed by the plastic cover of the electrical socket.
