I have a 20" inch girls kent trouble bike. How do I take the rear wheel off?


remove the coaster brake lever bolt. This is small bolt that holds the coaster brake lever to the left side chain stay. There will probably be a strap wrapped around the chain stay with bolt going through the strap and the lever. This usually requires a 10mm wrench (sometimes it is 8mm) for the nut and a Phillips or flat head screw driver (some times it's another 10mm bolt head).
The axle nuts are usually 15mm nuts. Loosen these (they usually don't need to be removed all the way) and push the wheel forward to put some slack in the chain. Lift the chain off the rear cog and you will be able to pull the wheel out of the drop outs.
To install, slide the wheel into the dropouts, put the chain back on the cog, pull back on the wheel and tighten the nuts finger tight. Reinstall the bolt through the coaster brake lever and then tighten the axle nuts, pull back on the wheel while tightening the nuts so the chain is tight. Then tighten up the coaster brake lever bolt. (if you tighten the axle nuts first, you won't be able to move the coaster brake lever into place to get the bolt in)

How to tighten kwikset #991LL


Remove inside lever by loosening the setscrew and pulling. Carefully pry off the inside cover. Make sure both screws are tight. Replace inside lever. With door unlocked, the outside lever can be removed in the same way as the inside. All that is necessary though is to be sure the setscrew on the outer lever is tight. Check to be sure the lock is tight and operating correctly before closing the door and locking it.

The deadbolt inside turnbutton is held on with a small setscrew. Remove it and the inside cover. Be sure the screws under the cover are tight. Check the lock operation, replace cover and turnbutton.

The lever that turns the water on doesn't stay up. Can't lift the handle halfway to get a little water because the handle falls to the off position.


Sounds like the collar that locks down the stem is in need of tighting to get some resistance to hold handle in place.
Remove handle to acces this collar and to tighten.

My locking dual brake lever does not hold in he PARK mode. The cables are as tight as possible without causing the brakes to drag.


If the lever stays in the park position but doesn't hold the wheel, then you'll need to have the brakes adjusted. They're likely not properly aligned with the rim, which is why the cables are tight, but not effective.

I have a model 5BS520C. The light works but when I pull the chain for the fan, I hear the sound of three speeds but the blades do not turn. ed.pfohl@gmail.com


Here some toubleshooting:

Problem 1. Fan will not start.
Probable Cause
1. Fuse or circuit breaker blown.
2. Loose power line connections to the fan, or loose wire connections in the switch housing.
3. Reversing switch in neutral position.

Suggested Remedy
1. Check main and branch circuit fuses or circuit breakers.
2. Check line wire connections to fan and switch wire connections in the switch housing.
3. Make sure reversing switch position is all the way to one side.

WARNING: Make sure main power is turned off.

Problem 2. Fan sounds noisy.
Probable Cause
1. Blades not attached to fan.
2. Loose screws in motor housing.
3. Screws securing fan blade flanges to motor hub are loose.
4. Switch housing binding against the blade hub.
5. Wire connectors inside switch housing rattling.
6. Screws holding blades to flanges are loose.

Suggested Remedy
1. Attach blades to fan before operating.
2. Check to make sure all screws in motor housing are snug (not over-tight).
3. Check to make sure the screws which attach the fan flanges to the motor hub are tight.
4. Check to make sure that the switch housing does not bind against the blade hub.
5. Check to make sure wire connectors in switch housing are not rattling against each other or against the interior wall of the witch housing.
6. Tighten screws securely.

WARNING: Make sure main power is turned off.

Problem 3. Fan wobbles
Probable Cause
1. Setscrew in motor coupling is loose.
2. Setscrew in the hanger ball/downrod assembly is loose.
3. Screws securing fan blade flanges to motor hub are loose.
4. Fan blade flanges not seated properly.
5. Hanger bracket and/or outlet box is not securely fastened.
6. Fan blades could be out of balance.

Suggested Remedy
1. Tighten the setscrew in the motor coupling.
2. Tighten the setscrew in the hanger ball/downrod assembly.
3. Check to be sure screws which attach the fan blade to motor hub are tight.
4. Check to be sure the fan blade flanges seat firmly and uniformly to the surface of the motor hub. If flanges are seated incorrectly, loosen the flange screws and retighten.
5. Tighten the hanger bracket screws to the outlet box, and/or secure outlet box.
6. Interchanging an adjacent (side-by-side) blade pair can redistribute the weight and result in smoother operation.

WARNING: FOR YOUR OWN SAFETY TURN OFF POWER AT FUSE BOX OR CIRCUIT BREAKER BEFORE TROUBLESHOOTING YOUR FAN!!!

Hope helps.

How do i tighten a loose screeching belt on an '01 accent gs 1.6L


The belt is adjusted by the position of the alternator. Loosen the bottom mounting bolts. Loosen the adjusting bolt in the top bracket & using a suitable lever, pry the alternator outwards until the belt is tight. Do not tighten it too tight. you should be able to deflect the belt down about 3/4 -1" when tightened. Hold the bar to maintain this tension on the belt and tighten the top adjusting bolt. Re-tighten the two bottom bolts. Check the deflection of the belt once more to ensure it is not to tight.

Reassembling telescopic sections for a 676B monopod


Each leg lock has a leg locking lever and a screw that hold the clamp assembly tight to the leg. Unlock the leg lock lever, loosen the screw above it that holds the clamp tight to the leg. The legs should fit into each other sice each leg is slightly larger or smaller then then next one. Slide the clamps in the approprite places and tighten the screw enough to hold the clamp assembly tight, but do not over tighten it. Over tightening will damage the 679 tubes.
