Question about Washing Machines

1 Answer

I have the Petco brand Mini Aquarium Kit but need either the light housing or a new lid. The switch is still intact and the plug to attach the light under the lid, but the socket/housing for the bulb is missing (I purchased this tank used and not from Petco or an online retailer) Is it possible to order replacement parts for this kit? I've looked on the Petco website and can't seem to find anything about getting replacement parts.

SOURCE: kenmore 110.92380200 washer lid switch replacement

You first have to remove the 2 phillip head screws on your face panel.There is one on each side located about 1 inch from the front corner.tThese 2 screws are holding down the entire front timer panel.Ok,now lift up & forward at the same time so you can swing back this timer panel and get it to balance back out of the way.Now, it becomes a little harder,locate the harness that your lid/spin switch is on by unscrewing the 2 screws on the spin switch.Pulling the bad switch away from your cabinet will expose the harness ,that way you will see where it is plugged in.After unplugging it your now ready to plug the new one in and just tuck in the harness in the cabinet.Flip the timer panel back down and screw it back down.Your done !!!

SOURCE: replace a lid switch

To access the lid switch:
1.Remove the trim on either side by prying off from the top. Grasp the trim at the top and pull forward to expose to expose a screw.
2. You will find a lid switch connector (white in color). Unplug the switch from the connector.
3. There will be two brass colored clips. Place a flat blade screwdriver straight down into the opening on top of the washer and into the groove of the clip. Push the screwdriver down and away from you and the clip will release.
4. Open the lid of the washer and place your hand under the front rim of the opening (DO NOT grab the wash tub). Tilt and slide cabinet forward to remove.

If you need further assistance, let me know

Filled but wont spin. brand new model wtw4950x


Sounds like a bad safety switch / lid switch. These new machines have magnetic proximity switches used on the lid to make sure the lid is closed before the machine will spin or cycle. Part is usually around 25.00 at appliance parts house for walk in customers. You would need someone familiar with electricity to replace it as it deals with 120 volts.

Fluval chi aquarium light does not turn off, defective switch how do I repair it?


Much too late to help, I'm sure, but the cheapest fix would likely be to add a simple tap switch.When the tap switch is turned off, it cuts the power off and the light will go out. A tap switch is simply an outlet with a switch fitted. Plug the tap switch into the wall, plug the aquarium light into the tap switch and you're set. They're cheap at places like Home Depot, likely half the price of the replacement switch from Hagen, who makes Fluval. Also a great way to make it easy to turn filters on and off without having to pull the cord from the outlet.

How to fix fluval led


on this tank the lights are built into the filter pump housing , if they go bad it might be possible to retrofit a new sealed light bar into the same space , but you will need to have previous knowledge of electronics and specify L.E.D. lights as they don't work like regular light bulbs but require a special kind of power or will be damaged if hooked to wrong type of power I suppose its possible to use batterys but id have no idea how long that would work

Where can I buy some aquarium gravel online?


There are several brand and varieties of gravel to choose from. I would be more than happy to post some of the more preferred brands here for you; however the choice is not so simple. Make sure you know what kind of gravel you need for the type of tank you have.

Mine wont spin


Your problem is more likely a broken lid switch. To test for this, lift the washer cover and look for a small hole in the washer top where the cover was. Push a toothpick gently into the hole and press the piece of plastic you see in the hole downward and listen for a soft clicking sound. If you don't hear a click or the plastic tab is not in the hole replace the lid switch.

Unplug the washer. Check the actuator on the lid that operates the lid switch to see if broken. Open the console of the washer. After removing the screws, the console will lift up and hinge back. Disconnect the plug going to the lid switch. Picture. Check the lid switch [lid closed] with an ohm meter from the wire plug-in leading to the switch. If no continuity, replace the lid switch. You will need to remove the cabinet to replace the switch. There are only a couple screws holding the lid switch assembly and a ground wire connection to the cabinet. Reassemble the washer and test the operation.

Unplug washer, remove the two console screws and tilt console back, remove cabinet clips, unlock lid switch block and then remove the cabinet. Remove the lid switch mounting screws, disconnect ground wire and remove lid switch assembly. Compare old switch to the new one. If the plastic sleeve of the new switch is longer, break off at the score mark. Pull wire partially out of sleeve before shortening sleeve. If the sleeve had to be shortened, the wires must be looped to take up the excess wire. Use supplied wire tie from the new kit. Install new switch assembly. New lid switch

Pay VERY close attention to assembling case back onto base so that sides engage tabs in base.

We are installing a lighting fixture on our Casablanca 4944D Concentra. We can get current across the various wires, but can not get the light to turn on. The colors of the wires are blue, black, red,...


On ceiling fans, the blue wire is designated for the accessory light kit. If you are using the Casablanca kit, it should be wired with a matching plug that just, well, plugs into the fan.

If you are adding another brand of light kit, you only need to connect the blue wire (hot/common) to the black wire of the light being attached, and the white (neutral) to the white wire of the light being attached.

Your fan will not have a pull chain/switch for the light attachment, as that is normally supplied pre-wired and installed in the light accessory.

If in doubt about about the wiring, contact Casablanca for a manual showing what light kits are acceptable for adding onto your particular fan model.

Also, please turn off the power before connecting the light kit to the fan.

Hope that helps and best regards!

New Hampton Bay Ceiling fan - runs only in clockwise direction


By using the "switch" to change direction I assume you mean the small slide switch on the side of the fan housing. What you have done is correct and would not affect this switch. The switch is probably bad and you need to return the fan. Suggestion: if the switch is on the housing of the light kit and the light kit connects to the fan with a plug, you are in luck. Go get another fan, swap the light kits and return the fan. Saves you a lot of work. Good luck!
