Twin Lever Kitchen Tap

The tap was purchased in B&Q. It has 2 lever taps at the side and long curve spout in between. When I turn the water on the spout springs off the connection as if the pressure was pushing it off. I have pushed it back in but I now need to hold onto the spout everytime the tap is turned on or water will spray from the base! Can someone help me fix this?

Re: Twin Lever Kitchen Tap


Most of these spouts are held on by a base nut or a top nut. Some have a clip inside which is released from below. It is possible that a small set screw that sits behind the spout should be holding it together. It may be loose. It is also possible that something is broken off as some of these fittings are made of plastic. What to do:

B & Q maintains a customer service operation to assist you. I note that many of the company's units have warranties of 5 years on parts and 2 on labor. I suspect they are your best source of help. You need to find out if something is broken or missing from your current installation. They'll send you a diagram to assist, I suspect.

Maytag range model MGR7662WB2. oven will not come on. when I test the DSI board I should have 120volts across J1-4 and J1-6 in bake mode but I only measure 4 volts. any idea what may be the problem

Was the control set to BAKE mode before you checked for voltage? J1-6 will only be energized if relay K7 on the main control is closed... Does the unit try a spark sequence when you try to bake, is there the "clunk" sound followed by three "tap-tap-tap," sounds of the electrode sparking at the bake tube?

Removing interior light cover

The cover is normally a flat piece of glass with clips either side or a round glass knob. Push the clips out of the way and the glass should come off with a little tap. The glass knob unscrews. Sometimes hard to turn. Dont be scared to use multigrips as it is quite tough just be gentle.

Oven control valve wont shut off gas completely

This could be due to a build up of grease or tiny food particles behind the control tap handle;
1/ Gently prise off the handle ( it comes towards you )
2/ Wash handle in warm soapy/detergent water, till clean, then dry.
3/ Use a lint-free cloth or a sponge with warm soapy water to soak the tap control spindle and a plastic knife to clean off any stubborn bits.
4/ Wipe clean , replace handle part, try turning off.

Can't get the glass lightbulb cover unscrewed on my viking dual-fuel 6 burner professional series range

They tend to gall and stick. The easiest way is to tap it with a plastic hammer (not too hard!), and wiggle it. Once you get it to move, work it back and forth; that is, tighten, loosen, tap,tap, tap. tighten, loosen, tap,tap, tap. This should free you up. If it sticks after appearing to start off, reverse again, then continue to unscrew. The hardest part will be the first complete revolution. You'll get it.
Best regards, --W/D--

I just dealt with the same problem. On this model, the (already very compact) oven temperature control includes a pilot safety valve. With the control turned to OFF, push in on the knob while applying a lighted match to the pilot. After the pilot lights, keep holding the knob in for a few seconds. When you release it, the pilot flame should stay on.

Me, I'm interested in why the pilot went out in the first place and what to do if it keeps going out. IS there that repair manual (online or in print) that jvmagic was asking about?
