What is a play-top bird cage?

Instruction to remove and replace cage bearing on husqvarna 055 chainsaw.


I guess we are talking the bearing in the clutch drum, to replace this you need to remove the side cover nuts and remove the side cover/chainbrake, make sure the brake is de activated by pulling the hand guard fully back to the top handle before removing it, the clutch has a 15mm centre nut, jar the clutch off against the compression of the saw with a suitable socket and speed brace, if you have an impact wrench this will remove the clutch in seconds, the clutch is just spun onto the crank with a left hand thread, turn clockwise to remove, once off the drum and bearing will just come off the crank for replacment.

Coleman RV Rooftop Air Conditioner - cage fan making a noise like it is hitting on something as it goes around. The motor works as it should, low and high fan and cool, the air is cold. The only thing...


Hi,
Those squirrel cage fans have a habit of coming apart, or getting dirt in them and going out of balance...then they wobble and hit the sides of the fan housing...
Make sure the fan is clean and also move it around a bit to make sure it is not coming apart....
Often the only way to fix them is too replace the sqirrel cage part...

How do I remove the CD/DVD drive from this computer? The layout inside is different from many desktops.


just pop off the colored plate and the clips are on the side. the drive will slide right out.
(1) take off the left side cover, (2) near the front, at the bottom of the internal drive cage is a plastic lever, flip it down, (3) now open the front plastic CD holder cover (the bottom gray plastic thing), (4) there are two finger holes at the bottom of the top plastic cover - pull the top cover loose (note if you're scared to put a lot of pressure on it, you can use a small flat screwdriver through those holes to lift back the two tabs holding the cover on), (5) with the top cover off, pinch in the two plastic tabs on the side of the drive you want and pull it forward (note disconnect the IDE cable (and audio if there is one) before pulling the drive too far out), (6) pull off the two side rails from the old drive (they just push in and pull out) - but note which rail comes off which side (I'm not sure if they can be inserted upside down or not, so just keep track of which one goes on which side), (7) push the side rails onto the new drive (note you have to really push hard on the metal part of the rail to seat it properly - you'll know it's not seated if the drive doesn't slip in easily), (8) slip in the new drive & connect the IDE and power (and audio if there is one)cables (9) install the top plastic frame, flip up the lock inside the case, then close the bottom CD cover thing, (10) enjoy the new drive. hope this helps you and please vote for me

DEll E310 fan make strange noises at various times. How can I replace the fan?


You didn't state which version you have, Slimline, Mid-Tower, or Desktop.

I'll give you the link to the Dell Dimension E310 Service Manual, and we'll go from there,

http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/dim3100/en/sm/index.htm

FIRST:
Computer off, unplug the power cord from the surge protector, FIRST, then unplug the power cord from the back of the power supply. (Back of computer)

Unplug all cables connected to the computer. If you are not 100 percent sure where they plug into, now is the time to make yourself a chart, and add notes.

Work on a table, open the computer case.

(Cover Release Latch button on the rear of the computer, top side. The Right side cover opens.

Tilt it out, lift it up to remove. Or on the Service Manual main page, scroll down to Removing the Computer Cover, and left-click on it)

With the computer cover open TOUCH the metal frame of the computer case, to relieve your body of Static electricity.
(Static can fry out your computer's hardware components, and you probably won't see it, or feel it)

1) The Floppy Disk cable has to be partially removed.

2) The Processor's Heatsink Assembly has to be removed.

3) The SATA harddrive cables, need to be slipped out of the top of the Fan assembly cage's, squeeze connectors.
(This will make more sense, once you view the SATA harddrive's cables, and where they go across the Fan Assembly)

4) Then you can access the Fan Assembly, to get to the Fan.

A) With this Dell Dimension model, you have to remove the Floppy Disk flat ribbon cable, to access the Heatsink assembly, that sits on top of the Processor.

Remove it from the Floppy Drive ONLY. (Not shouting) Leave the cable connected to the motherboard.

You also have to slip the Floppy Disk's flat ribbon cable, out of the connector tang, that is on top of the Processor's Heatsink assembly.

(Flat steel tang, that is part of the Heatsink Assembly's frame, or cage. Pull up on the side that faces the rear of the computer, slip the Floppy Drive cable out)

This information is more easily seen, if you view the illustrations for - Removing a Floppy Drive.

On the main page of the Service Manual, scroll down to Removing and Installing Parts, and left-click on it.

On this page scroll down the left column, and left-click on - Floppy Drive

B) Removing the Processor Heatsink Assembly:

The Processor Heatsink Assembly is essentially a U shaped metal cage, that has a Heatsink attached to it.
There are 2 screws that hold the front of this metal cage down, and when removed, the cage itself tilts towards the Back of the computer.

(You may have to remove the Power Supply, to access the top screw of the Heatsink cage, or use an Offset screwdriver)

The tangs are triangular shaped, and are on the bottom of the metal cage, towards the Front of the metal cage.

The metal rectangular cage tilts back on two pivot pins, then it can be lifted up, and off.

In Removing and Installing Parts, left-click on Removing the Processor, for illustrations. (Or scroll down the page to this heading)

C) Removing the SATA harddrive cables, out of the connectors on top of the Fan Assembly:

This can be more readily seen by clicking on -
Installing a Harddrive, in Replacing and Installing Parts.

D) Now you can access the Fan.
The Fan is inside a shroud. The shroud is held to the Fan Assembly cage by plastic tangs, that are part of the shroud.

The tangs go through slots on the plastic Fan Assembly's cage.

The tangs are squeezed in, so that the hook end of the tang is able to slide out of the slot.

(It may be that the tang is pried towards the outside, so that it will clear the slot)

It's a lot of fun(?) trying to keep to tangs squeezed, so that you can slip one side of the Fan shroud, out of the slots.

This should release tension so that the other side's tangs will be able to slip their corresponding slots.

Buying a replacement fan will require a little homework, and searching various websites that offer a compatible sized fan. (Or peruse your local Mom and Pop computer repair shops)

You need to know the diameter of the Fan, as well as the thickness, (Or depth), of the shroud that surrounds the fan.

Also what type of connector it uses. 2 pin, 3 pin, or 4 pin.

The size of a fan, and the thickness of a Fan shroud, are usually stated in Millimeters. If you use the Inch system, go online, and use a free Millimeter to Inch Converter.

Here is one example, of a website that offers computer case fans,

http://www.directron.com/casefans.html

BEFORE you reinstall that Processor Heatsink Assembly! (Not shouting)

You MUST clean the top of the Processor's case, and the bottom of the Heatsink that sits on the Processor.

You will either see Thermal Paste, or a Thermal Pad.

If it is a Thermal pad, remove it, throw it away.
They are Junk, and cannot be reused!

I use an old credit card to scrape the top of the Processor's case, and the bottom of the Heatsink.
Stiff plastic, and is anti-Static.

I use Isopropyl Alcohol with Q-tips to clean the remaining thermal paste residue off.
(Rubbing Alcohol. 91 percent alcohol, or better is best)
Usually takes quite a few Q-tips, dipped in alcohol to do this.
Both surfaces must be CLEAN!

CAUTION!
Isopropyl Alcohol is EXTREMELY FLAMMABLE, and burns clean. The flame is virtually colorless. Use in a well ventilated environment, and with no sparks, or flames present.

The top of a Processor's case, and the bottom of a Heatsink are not perfectly smooth. To the human eye they may seem so.

There are microscopic pits, and valleys. These create Air Pockets.
Air is an Insulator, not a Conductor.

Thermal paste fills these voids. Thermal paste is an excellent Conductor, and transfers heat well.

The heat Must be transferred from the Processor to the Heatsink, so that the fan will transfer the heat away, from the fins of the Heatsink.

When a Processor becomes too hot, it turns off. (BIOS turns it off)
This is a Fail Safe feature that is built-in, to keep the processor from burning up.

My heater will not turn to high in my 2005 GMC Safari


I'm facing the same problem. I am part way finished replacing the motor. Here's what I know so far. Disconnect wiring for blower motor (located up against the firewall on the passenger side). Unbolt the front face from the fan housing (5 7mm bolts). Here's where I get stuck - remove the squirrel cage from the motor, there is some kind of a clip holding the cage onto the motor - how does it come off? Once it is off, replace the old motor with a new one and put things back together.

It says off and thats all


CD stuck in player.
Unplug.
Remove lid, small black screws on side and along the top of the back.
Fiddle with latch on left side near front that controls the door.
Once latch is released, open door and remove all CD's.
Make sure 2 CD's are not **** in player.
Move CD cage carefully. It should run smoothly along. If not it is locked in 'switched off mode' or CD is stuck half in and half out. If CD stuck fish CD out carefully.
Plug back in without any CD's in.
System should run back and forward and then lock at left hand end.
Put lid on and try one CD in one slot.

Cannot eject or turn off power on my pioneer deh-p8600mp


when you take the unit out of your car and looking at the top of the unit there are two black screws. Remove those then remove the entire cd player cage by the 4 CHROME screws on the four corners of the cage the two in the front are in the two holes in the ver front (**use magnetic screw driver for this**) then disconect the two wire plug and the ribbon cable from the bottom of the cd player cage **BE GENTLE** there are two black tabs on either side of the ribbon cable. THEY ONLY MOVE ABOUT 1/8TH ON AN INCH using a jewler flat blade screw driver gently slide the clip out to un crimp the ribbon cable then once the cage is removed you can open the face. To open the face there is a white gear wheel on the rightn hand side of the unit you can rotate it with your thumb with a little effort. Rotate accordingly..... at that point you shouldnt have any problem but let my know if you do..

Memorex CD Clock Radio # 2863. Broken latch .. will not hold down top cover


Also have the same problem, clock sat on the night stand for a couple of years. Wife took into work to play CD's at the Christmas Party and the latch failed.

Think we may have used it once or twice as a CD player.

The black latch was easy to remove, justed open up the radio and pushed in the ears on the latch and it slipped back up into the CD compartment.

Will see if I can find something to repair it. Looked like the side cracked and a housing lost some of its side.
