Cracks near hinge Acer 3613 laptop

Large cracks have appeared on the outside bottom left hand and right hand side of each hinge on my Acer 3613 laptop. They are going to et bigger each time I open the lid and I dont want the problem to get any worse. Is there anything I can do like use silicone sealant or does anyone know of a better solution. My husband suggested Duck tape!

Apply a lubricant to the hinges themselves - not a ton of lubricant, as you don't want anything running down into the laptop proper.

What sound like has happened is that the display has somehow been in a bind, and therefore the hinges are in a bind. This makes it harder to moved the hinges, and thus when you open the lid it is making the cracks.

You may also want to unseat / unscrew the hinges and re-tighen the little screws that hold them in place.

Taking apart a NEFF oven door


The inner door glass is held on by two clips at the bottom (hinge side) and two slides near the handle side. Remove the door from the oven and lie it the worktop flat with the hinges uppermost. Near the hinges you will see the glass is angles leaving a triangle of metal frame either side near the hinges.Rest the outside of your hand on the metal for purchase and then pull on the glass along the bottom edge (reasonable tug required) this will disengage the bottom clips and then slide the glass down about an inch to remove completely.

Frigidaire dishwasher (FDB1100RHC2) is leaking from bottom right corner and it appears there are small hairline cracks on the plastic tub. Is there a way to repair them?


Hello - Do you notice if the dishwasher have deflectors installed in the bottom left and right corners of the tub gasket channel? If so, confirmed that they are properly installed and present. In case that it is not, they may possibly need replacing. However, from what you have described it sounds like the springs or hinges may possibly be damaged, or gasket not sealing properly. I would strongly suggest contacting a professional to move forward accurately.

If all you need are shims, use washers (either plastic or metal) with an interior hole large enough to go over hinge pin to raise door. However, in reading your complaint, I feel as though shims (or washers) may not solve your problem. You may have an issue with the door seal and or door liner. Sometimes a new seal will correct the problem but check for any cracks in the door liner. If cracks are evident, you will need to replace both. Putting a door seal on a cracked liner will NOT help. If you need to replace both, it can get a little costly. Good luck.

Cracks in case around hinges.


Replace bottom plastics. Find them by doing a Google search. Use keywords 'laptop plastics for make/model.
