Inability to access insides

Light comes on but no heating. How do I get a screwdriver to open the irritating user-proof screw on the bottom?

    Actually, the screws are like torx, but have a central pin that stops you getting a regular torx driver in - anyone know where to buy such a drilled-out torx set?

Shughes,

The torx bits are called tamper proof bits. I bought my set a Lowes.

If the screw has an internal star configuration then it is a torx screw. torx drivers are easy to come by. you may even find an allen wrench might fit it. another is a three slot driver, then there is a one way screw that has flats for screwing in but ramps that push the regular screwdriver off it. use a diagonal cutting plier and press it tightly in the screw head and rotate counter clockwise.

How do you open lionel transformer cw-80?


On the base of the transformer you will find 4 tamper proof screws that you will need to remove to open the case. A triangular blade screwdriver will be need to do this. Once removed the tamper proof screws can be replaced with self tapping screws.

Big job.
The top comes open with a small screwdriver, or better yet a putty knife slipped to the right and left front corners and pried up. You have a plastic clip on either side of the front top which will snap open when pried.
Then, the front of the machine is usually held on with two screws that are inserted into the top front from the top sides, one screw in each side.
The bottom is easier, once the top screws are out, you lift the whole front panel off.
Down at the bottom of the front panel are two clips that go in two holes to hold the panel on.
You will also be unplugging the wire connector to the door switch.
We also had this happen, and if turning your clothes inside out or tying the strings doesn't work, we found to put such items inside a mesh "unmentionables/undergarments" bag stopped the problem.
Be blessed.

Rear deck stop light


the hyundai suggested method is by removing the back seat. the dealer will charge you around $100.
i have done it using an alternate method.
1. open the trunk
2. crawl in facing up
3. locate openings below the brake light
(the opening is offset from the bottom of the light and holder (very helpful of hyundai!!!)
4. remove the foam pieces if any.
5. remove the screws holding the cover in place. a magnetic philips screwdriver would be good.
6. unscrew the light using the tab at the bottom of the holder
7. push it up and into the passenger compartment.
8. the entire assembly should come out from inside the compartment.
9. replace the bulb.
10. saw off the extra plastic tab at the bottom of the holder ( will help in putting it back and for future installs)
11. replace everything in the reverse order: bulb , cover ( inside the passenger compartment), replace screws from inside the trunk.

How to replace light bulbs in a Jerdon Tri-fold makeup mirror


In order to replace bulbs, look at the back of the mirror. There will be four white circle coverings hiding the screw heads, and these must be drilled open in order to access the screws that hold the two halves of the mirror together (these coverings will not have to be replaced). Once these screws are located and unscrewed, flip the mirror back over and remove the top half. Carefully, replace the bulbs.

Door has been locked shut for 5 days with clothes inside.


Please AVOID answering questions of which you know NOTHING.


1. Remove the lower panel under the door by loosening the three screws under the bottom edge on the front of the washer. HINT: If you prop up the front feet of the washer with some small blocks of wood, this will make access to the screws much easier.
2. With the screws removed, the lower panel should drop down then come off. If the panel sticks, a light tap on either side will knock it loose.
3. Reach your hand up inside the washer behind the front casing on the right-hand side. This is where the door latch assembly is located.
4. At the bottom of the door latch assembly is a small pull tab. This is the manual release for the door. Pull the tab straight down and the door will come open.

How to change the belt?


Yesterday I have the same problem: the belt of my Sunbeam bread machine broke. My problem is I didn't find a belt replacement yet. Once you have a replacement, to change the belt:
1. Unscrew the 4 screws located at the bottom of the machine
2. Open the top of your machine. You'll see 8 screws that put together the bottom of the chamber with the walls. You need to unscrew those screws with a very long screwdriver (caution with the heating element).
3. There is one screw attaching the heat element to a ceramic rectangle to the opposite side of the chamber. Unscrew this TOP scew.
4. Once all those screws are out you have to force the bottom piece of the machine with a flat screwdriver. This bottom is attached to the top part with some clips on the front and the back of the machine.
5. Once you open the bottom "cap", caution when separating both pieces. You will find a flat cable that is connected from the computerized pannel to one card attached to the bottom part of the machine. This plug located on the card at the bottom part of the machine have one drop of glue securing the two parts. Twist off the drop of glue and you can disconnect the cable from the card without any problem.
6. Once both parts (top and bottom) are separated you can proceed unscewing the 7 screws that fix the motor to the plastic bottom "cap". You need to do that to access the bellt area.
7. To place a new belt just unscrew the bolt that fix the large "circle". Take away the bolt, the 2 washers, the rectangle one and the "circle". Place the new belt around the small circle (motor) and the big circle. Return the big circle to its original location (align the square part of the wheel with the square part of the screw) and push it to set it in place. Return the rectangle washer, the flat washer, the pressure washer and screw the bolt to secure the pieces.
8. Put all the pieces together in reverse order: *screw the motor to the bottom plastic piece; *connect the flat cable to the card; *push the top and bottom pieces together and until all the clips fall in place; *screw all the little screws to the botom of the inside chamber; * screw the little/long screw to fix the heat element to the ceramic rectangle; *screw the bottom screws.
AND ENJOY YOUR MACHINE! :0)

The heating coil isn't working. I am trying to get the screws out but they have triangular shaped indentations in the screws. Where do I get a screw driver bit to fit them?


the screws are tamper proof screws because it isn't meant to be user friendly. however if you have an old philips screwdriver and a dremel tool you can make a driver for those screws.
