Most if not all of the simplicity brand drop-side cribs have been recalled, including the Graco 8740.

Here is the CPSP link regarding this crib:
http://www.cpsc.gov/CPSCPUB/PREREL/prhtml09/09260list.html
http://www.cpsc.gov/cpscpub/prerel/prhtml07/07307.html

According to the CPSP information the company appears to be out of business to some degree and are not providing repair kits.

If you know where you purchased the crib, check to see what their policy is regarding recalled baby products.

We had purchased ours at walmart almost 8 years ago and were able to return it to another store in a different state for a full refund last summer. They did not need a receipt received, they just needed the manufacturer label on the part that the mattress lies on.

Because ours was older, the customer service clerk did have to work hard to find the crib in their system, but once she did, it was not problem at all.

My front right brakes grabs and abs system works


I expect that the caliper is sticking. The rails get corroded or rusty and keep the caliper from returning to the rest position. sometimes the caliper pins are corroded and caust the same situation. Usually this seems to occur on one side and the result is that the pads on that side wear more quickly due to the caliper not retracting, thus leaving the pads touching the rotor and wearing quicker. Suggest caliper removal and scrape and wirebrush the rails, replace the caliper pins. I use a high temperature synthetic brake grease on the rails and the caliper pins for lubrication and protectionl.

Drawer off track


if it is the drawer dishwasher, then first you need to take the front cover off carefully. Turn the mains power off and take the power plug out from socket if accessible. With a plier pull out the pins on each side of the drawer holding the front cover. Carefully pull out the front cover and leave it aside. Find where the drawer has come off the rails. Extend the rail arms on each side and try to replace the drawer on the guide rail and latch it back in. Make sure the controller and top display panel do not fall off when handling the drawer. Once the drawer is back on rail, put the top cover back and secure the pins from the sides. Put the mains power back.

On my Kitchenaid Artisan mixer the 3" silver rod fell out the back. How do I slide back in?


I an sorry but the only Rod in the back of a K45SS is the pivot hinge pin that holds the motor head onto the base. if it fell out then the answer is simple. Turn the mixer upside down and wiggle the base while sliding the pin back in. Once the pin is back in place, there is a set screw in the middle of the shaft that you can see while you are replacing the pin, turn this back down with a flat head screwdriver untill it is firmly against the hinge pin. The culprit of the problem is this set screw. It came loose and allowed your hinge pin to vibrate out and then fall down or fall out as you said. once the set screw is back in place you will be fine. To avoid this problem in the future you might remove the screw entirely and put a drop of "Lock-Tight" on it that will help hold the setscrew in place for a very long time.

Side rail falls off


Sounds like you may either be missing a piece of the moving side hardware, or have an item installed backwards (the moving side components are left and right orientation). We can email a copy of the assembly instructions to you as well as replace any missing or broken hardware that you may need. Please email your request to us at parts@productsamerica.com, and mention that is for a Kinderkraft Vermont (should be model 710 - check your label for model info), or call us at 800.205.9642 or 800.772.1041 for direct assistance.

Lense on Cannon sureshot


Not really, zoom lenses are pretty fragile and will permanently be damaged when they get a shock. Most probably the guide rails/pins are damaged inside, and it will need luck and patience to glue them in place (and most of the times glue isn't strong enough to keep them together).

Better sell it for parts on ebay and get yourself a new one (most of the times broken fetch half price of used ones). People need different parts (i.e., the mount, motors, aperture assembly), and it is environmentally great to recycle goods for reuse by other repairers...

Kinderkraft crib model 710


On the bottom of the front rail that drops (the drop rail), there are two plastic tension pieces (one at either end) that engage the two fixed, bottom rail slider hardware (the long, narrow pieces screwed top-and-bottom into the lower, inside portion of the tall, upright crib ends). These tension pieces are spring loaded, and the outer edge of each one rides along the outside (i.e., the parent's side) of the two bottom metal rail guides. Their purpose is to supply outward pressure against the lower part of the drop rail - that's what you push against when you press your lower leg upon the bottom of the drop side of the crib to lower it. They insure that when up, the drop side locks safely into place. I suspect these tension pieces are your problem. It sounds like they are improperly installed. Good luck.

Convert to toddler bed


They do have answers on their website, you may want to check your printed or online crib instructions to remind yourself how you put the crib together, too.

I found the answers here:
http://www.pali-design.com/index.php?path=customer_services&template=faq&section=customer_services&subsection=faq&page=faq

i've pasted them below. You can make it a toddler bed without a side rail just by removing the movable side of your crib, and you can install the side rail instead of the movable side if you want it to look a little more finished and help keep your child from rolling out of the bed.

FAQ

How to convert a crib into a toddler bed
To convert a crib into a toddler bed you must loosen the two front gold bolts left and right side of the crib and remove the dropside (the front gate that goes up and down). After removing the dropside be very careful that you tighten back your two gold bolts.

How to install the streight rail (toddler rail)
To install a streight (toddler) rail loosen the two front gold bolts left and right side of the crib and remove the dropside, once you have removed the dropside replace with the streight rail. Always be very careful and make sure you tighten back your two gold bolts in the front.

A part has fallen out.


The component that fell out is called a tape guide. The guide assembly fits into the guide rail on the supply side (left side) of the drum. You will notice another guide to the right, this is the take up guide assy, it sits in the guide rail assembly as well. There will be a silver shaft sticking up from the guide rail where the tape guide should be seated, with gentle pressure, the guide should snap back on and the unit should operate correctly. Please do not touch the drum surface as this may damage the video head assembly. Hope this helps you, good luck. Joe Weibel customelectronics.org
