Does the plastic face plate where the start, fabric care and cycle selection knobs are located simply pop off with a screwdriver? Just don't want to break it trying to remove it?

How do I remove dash from 2012 Dodge Charger?


Usually all dashes are clips connected to the backside of your dash face plate, now you should see a crease or line between the face plate and the back of dash, carefully insert a flat head screwdriver and turn clockwise "popping" clip out of retainer, look for screws around dash before trying this, if given extreme resistance

Removal of plastic face panel


usually not. Take the knobs off, they pull off and look for screws under them. Check the back of the panel to make sure there are no screws holding it on also

We can't remove the door knob from our bathroom door because there is no screws. Please advise


The knob part has a small slot on bottom side near the brass plate.
Get on the floor and look up.
Locate slot. Take a photo so you can enlarge what you see.

There is a metal tongue that is clicked down into the slot. This holds the knob from coming off.
Use small screwdriver to push up the tongue at the same time you are pulling to remove the knob.

Once the knob starts coming out, you have to pull screwdriver out of the way.
Knob comes off.
Brass plate covers the screws. Use screwdriver on edge of brass plate to remove. Notice brass place has small indents where a screwdriver can fit.

Once plate and knob are off, you have access to screws.
Take photos as you go so everything goes back smoothly.

When putting knob back, the tongue might have to be pushed so knob goes on.
Push knob into place until you hear tongue click into slot.

You would have to locate a shop that sells parts for this unit. If it is simply a threaded inlet & outlet regulator, you might even find parts at a local hardware.

Unable to read disc


Hello,

If your console is unable to read disc, then there seem to be a problem with the console, and the problem most likely is as a result of a bad laser/lens inside the console.

To replace the lens of the nitendo wii console, remove the two flip up panela on the side of the wii to reveal the black face plate with the controller ports and memory card slot.

Then remove the three screws located underneath the flip up panels using the fine phillips head screwdriver, then remove the black face plate.

Then remove the two tri wing screws located underneath the face plate. There are also two phillip head screws under the face plate but you can leave them in place.

Use a scalpel to peel off the two white stickers that are covering the screws located near the two front rubber feet on the bottom of the wii. This will reveal two black tri wing screws.

Use the scalpel to remove the two back ribber feet on the bottom of the wii, this will reveal two silver tri wing screws. Remove the two black tri wing screws and the two silver tri wing screws revealed on the bottom of the wii.

Use the scalpel to remove the rubber foot that is covering a screw in the top left corner at the back of the wii. Remove the screw using the fine phillip head screwdriver. Then use the scalpel to remove the white sticker covering the screw directly below the bar code on the back of the wii. Remove the screw with the tri wings screwdriver. Then use the fine phillip head screwdriver to remove the screw that is holding the battery cover in place on the back of the wii. This will reveal another screw that you can remove with the tri wing screwdriver.

Remove the front face plate of the wii, be careful because it is still attached to the console by a black and red wire. Disconnect the wires by lightly pulling on it. Remove the wii shell casing by gently lifting the separating it from the internal electronics of the console.

Remove the DVD drive by taking out the four corner screws using the large phillip head screwdriver then lift up the DVD drive and disconnect both power cable and ribbon cabble connecting it to the console.

Turn the disassembled console upside down, remove the two screws holding the DVD citcuit board in place, disconnect the three ribbon cable that are attached to the DVD circuit board, Use the tweezers to free the wires that are still connected to the circuit board from the plastic clips, Lift up the DVD circuit board and remove it from the way, then remove the lens case that is holding the lens ribbon cable in place.

Use the tweezers to remove the lens casing by lifting up on one side hooks that are holding it in place. This will reveal the laser lens unit, Which is held in place by two metal bars. Take out one of the metal bars by first removing the screws located next to it, and then gently lifting up on the plastic tab so you can slide it out.

Remove the laser lens unit and turn it over to reveal a white plastic part held in by a screw. Take out the screw so you can remove the white plastic part. You will need the part to install the replacement lens.

Attach the white plastic part from your old lens to your new lens using the same screw from the old unit. Place the new lens in the console and reassemble The DVD circuit board.

Remove the two solder points located on the lens ribbon by using a hot soldering iron.

Then reverse the process to reassemble the console.

Take care and good luck.
Hope this was helpful

Wash cycle dial wont turn...will still push in and pull to start


We have a GE WJRR4170 washer, with the same problem. At first I thought I might have to unscrew the entire control panel just to replace the knob. However, replacing the knob turns out to be easy.

Right behind the knob, holding it in place, is a nylon/plastic retainer clip. If you pull out the knob (into the "start" position), you will get easier access to the retainer clip. You can use a flathead screwdriver to push the clip out. The knob then will slide easily off the metal stem. A GE replacement knob costs $9 or $10, depending on the source.

Shame on GE, but the knob is designed terribly. The part of it that engages the dial has eight, flimsy plastic teeth. At any time, four of these are supposed to engage four little slots in the dial. However, the way the knob is designed, there will be a lot of wear and tear on these plastic teeth, so they'll wear out on every single machine.

Good luck to the many people who will have this problem!

If the oven doesn't heat evenly or doesn't heat at all, the oven thermostat may be malfunctioning. First, determine how much the temperature in the oven is off from the control setting. To do this, put an oven thermometer on a center rack inside the oven and turn the oven on for about 20 minutes, with the thermostat set at any range between 300 degrees and 400 degrees Farenheit. If the oven thermometer reads 25 degrees or more lower or higher than the oven control setting, the thermostat should be recalibrated. Here's how to calibrate the thermostat:

Step 1: Pull off the thermostat knob on the control panel. Behind the knob are two screws holding a round, notched plate. Loosen these screws, but do not remove them.

Step 2: With a screwdriver, change the notch setting on the notched plate by turning the plate counterclockwise; for every eighth of a turn, the oven temperature goes up about 25 degrees Farenheit. To turn the heat down, turn the plate clockwise.

Some thermostats can be adjusted by turning a screw inside the control knob shaft housing. To do so, remove the knob and insert a screwdriver into the shaft so that the screwdriver blade engages a screw slot. Turn the screwdriver counterclockwise about one-eighth of a turn to raise the heat about 
25 degrees Farenheit. Here's how to test a malfunctioning thermostat:

Step 1: Test the thermostat with a VOM (multimeter) set to the RX1 scale. The thermostat is located directly on the back of the control knob that regulates the heat. To gain access to the thermostat, remove the back service panel to the control panel.

Step 2: Disconnect one electrical lead wire from a terminal of the thermostat and clip one probe of the VOM to each thermostat terminal. If the thermostat is in working order, the meter will register zero. If the needle jumps to a higher reading, the thermostat is faulty and should be replaced.

Step 3: If necessary, replace the thermostat with a new one of the same type.

If you need to replace the thermostat, follow these guidlines:

Step 1: Disconnect the terminal wires to the thermostat and pull off the control knob.

Step 2: Remove the retaining screws. On some ranges, there is a wire running from the thermostat into the oven. This wire operates a sensing bulb that controls the thermostat. The sensing bulb is usually held by a bracket; unscrew this bracket to remove the bulb. Then carefully slip out the wire, the bulb, and the thermostat.

Step 3: Install the new thermostat using a reverse procedure.
