    There are 2 screws at the top where the cylinder is, I've tried tighten and loosing the screws but the door is still rubbing against door frame

  • Trevor Marsh Oct 17, 2013

    I would check the screws in the hinges to be sure they are tight (sorry if you already did this) Where is it rubbing? Top or bottom? is it latching?

  • Stacy Oct 17, 2013

    There is no hinges just knobs that go in the top and bottom that holds it together, the cylinder is at the top where hinges should be, the door is rubbing at the top these doors were first hung in 1975 so they are pretty old doors,

    I've been looking for doors and windows in Barrie. Do you know where I could find a place to get them?

  • Michelle Balcom May 05, 2014

    there should be an adjustment nut to raise / lower door at the top and bottom of the hinge side of the door, you probably have a concealed closer, look for 3 little holes in the frame top, one will be latch speed, one is closing speed and one is backstop. Tighten with allen wrench until door does not move and slowly release until desired swing is achieved. There should be 1/8 clearance around the door, tighten or loosen the 2 nuts at frame side until the clearance is good.

What is the most common executive toy in offices?


The most common executive toy found in offices is Newton's Cradle.
This toy is named after Isaac Newton and consists of a series of identical metal spheres attached to a frame by strings, so that they touch each other at rest. When one sphere is lifted and released, it strikes the first ball in the series and stops. The energy of the first ball is acquired by the last ball in the series, which swings and coming back releases its energy, which causes the first ball to swing again, and so on. This creates a constant swinging from one side to the other, leaving all the other spheres unmoved.
The swinging can also be done by more than one sphere at a time, even by three out of five, causing the middle sphere to never stop swinging.
Here is a picture of a Newton's Cradle in movement:

Gas leak when I put the scooter on the kickstand


I own an Andretti M50 and I had 2 different gas leak problems, and neither was a stuck float.
- the gas filter that comes with the bike is a 2-piece screw together unit and the gasket between the 2 pieces leaks gas down onto the cylinder!
I replaced with a $3 one piece from Pep Boys.
- the second leak the gas just poured onto the ground. It was caused by poor design and tight tolerances where the fuel line attaches to the carb. The fuel line would get guillitoned every time you hit a bump by the engine swinging the carb tight against the frame. I rotated the carb in its manifold away from the frame. (you have to cut the nubs off the carb manifold to rotate it).

The inside shower door is uneven, making it come of the hinge after moving it more than 4-6 inches.The metal attachment holding the glass is lower than the other ones.How do I get it even so it slides...


The top rollers should have adjustments on them to bring the door to horizontal as it swings accross the track.

Start with door in the middle and adsust by seinging it to both sides.

How do you get the doors on a side by side model to swing shut?


Hi, There are adjustments on each side in the front corners. Turn the bolt clockwise and the front of the refrigerator should raise up. This will cause the doors to shut on there own.
If there is resistance when the door is swinging, check the hinges and see if the nylon washers/closers are warn.
I hope this helps you. Please let me know if I can assist you further.

Glass on sliding door


this is the link to the information http://www.swisco.com/Screen/how-to-repl...

Opening your patio sliding glass door should be an easy task. If your sliding door is giving you a work out every time you open it, most likely it is your rollers that are causing the problem. The rollers are located on the bottom of the sliding door and give the door the ability to slide. Often times they get dirty and wear out, making it difficult to open the door. If you have an older sliding glass door your rollers may have become rusty because sliding door units did not always use stainless steel rollers.

Hiring a professional to replace your rollers could cost you around $100 not including the cost of the replacement parts. Below are detailed steps containing all the information you will need to know to replace your patio sliding glass door rollers yourself.

* Before you start, understand that you need to take the sliding glass door out of its frame to work on the rollers. The sliding glass door is heavy. You may need the assistance of another to help you remove the door.

1) Your patio glass door will have two separate glass units. One unit is the door that you slide and the other unit is stationary. First, stand outside your house and look at your sliding glass door. If the stationary unit is between you and the sliding unit you will most likely have to remove the stationary unit so that you can get to the glass sliding unit.

Before you go through the trouble of removing the stationary unit, first try to go inside your house and see if you can remove the sliding unit. Usually you cannot because there is a lip along the bottom of the patio glass door frame (it keeps moisture out of the house) that prevents the sliding glass door from being removed from the inside.

If the rollers on the bottom of the door are difficult to get over the lip, you can adjust them to help you create more room (go down to step 2). If it is not the rollers but the sliding unit�s frame preventing you from pulling the sliding unit out of the door frame, you are going to need to remove the stationary unit first before you can remove the sliding unit.

To remove the stationary unit, you first need to take out your screen door (if you have one). Lift one end of the screen door frame and use a screwdriver to lift the roller on the bottom of the screen door frame off of the track. Do this to both ends of the screen door and your screen door will pull out of the door frame.

The stationary unit is held in place by a metal piece that runs along the bottom of the track from the corner of the stationary unit to the bottom of the side jamb (there is a chance this piece is missing but if you do have one remove it from the track). After you have removed the metal piece, look for screws holding the stationary unit frame in place. After removing all of the screws try pulling the stationary unit out of the door frame. If you are having trouble pulling out the stationary unit, try placing a screwdriver between the stationary unit�s bottom frame and the track it is resting on. Lift up on the screwdriver while you have a helper pull out the stationary unit from the door frame. Be careful not to use too much force with the screwdriver so that you do not damage the door track.

2) You may need to create more room when you attempt to remove the sliding unit from the door frame. To create more room you can adjust the rollers on the bottom of the sliding unit. By turning the adjusting screws on the rollers clockwise the wheels move up into the sliding unit�s frame giving you more room. The adjusting screws are located either at the bottom of the sliding unit�s frame or in the sides of the frame. There is a chance that there are plugs covering the screws.

After you adjust both rollers (one on each side of the sliding units frame) try to remove the sliding unit from the door frame. If the unit is still getting stuck you may need to get someone to help you. Have your helper lift one side of the unit and pull outwards while you try to pry the other side of the unit over the track.

3) To remove the rollers from most sliding units you need to remove the bottom of the sliding units frame. Most likely the screw that holds the roller in place is the same screw that holds the frame together. Remove the screw from both sides of the unit. Then try to remove the bottom piece of the frame off of the sliding unit; you may need to use a rubber mallet or a piece of wood and tap on the bottom of the frame until it comes off of the sliding unit.

Now that you have removed the bottom of the frame you can take a close look at your patio glass door rollers. Remove one of the rollers and match it up with one of the rollers on this page http://www.swisco.com/page/SI/CTGY/patio...

It is a good idea to replace both sliding door rollers at the same time to prevent extra wear-and-tear to one new roller, which will have to work twice as hard when paired with an older roller.

4) After your new rollers come in, replace your old rollers with the new ones. To make it easier to install the sliding unit back into the door frame, adjust the rollers to be all the way up into the frame. Once you have the sliding unit back in the door frame you can adjust the rollers for optimal performance. Keep adjusting the rollers until the door is sliding back and forth easily

Continous burst mode


The Movie Mode takes very low resolution frames and can be re-played frame-by-frame.

Use the Continuous Mode for resolutions 2,048x1,536 or 1,600x1,200 or 640x480 get more details than movie.

For higher frame rates, use 1,600x1,200 and you can get quite good photos.
