Hi, Anita. When asking questions, please mention make, model, age, and how long you have had the unit. Does the knob need to be pushed or pulled to engage the machine?

How do I unstick the temperature control knob in my freezer? It will not budge. My freezer is over freezing and my refrigerator is not cooling properly.


It is possible that water or the moisture in your freezer has frozen the knob so it feels stuck, so the couple of ways you can fix it is, 1 unplug the freezer, let it defrost and when it warm the knob should loosen up. 2 if you dont want to do the first cuz of food and whatnot what i would do is get a wrench that can fit the knob, put a wash cloth over the knob so dont scratch it all up and grab it with the wrench and try to twist it that way. And 3 take that part of the fridge apart, take off the covers or see if you can open up that area and try to take the knob completely off, and if its like every other knob ive ever seen, once you get the plastic knob off there will be a metal pin that has a flat side that lines up with the plastic knob, take pliers or wrench and try to spin that little pin

How to Open to refill a Reusable Acrylic Pepper & Salt Mill


Hello. This is about opening an acrylic pepper and salt mill or pepper grinder so that you may refill this kitchen utensil. One will usually find that the chrome knob on top of the pepper mill is used to open the pepper mill can be too difficult to open, because one cannot grip the chrome knob on top of the pepper mill to open. I am going to offer three different options for opening a pepper mill:
1) Use a pair of work gloves with specialize dripping material on finger tips. Hold top bulb while turning chrome knob counter clockwise.
2) A small nut wrench with cellophane tape on chrome knob to above marring chrome knob.
3) Get a wrench and a towel. Fit folded towel in jaws of wrench and place towel and open wrench on chrome knob and turn counter clockwise. Practice on a pine dowel to know appropriate pressure to use to avoid marring the chrome knob. If you can replace the chrome smooth knob with a grip friendly knob, if possible.

Finally, do not over tighten knob just finger tight.

Tranny clunks when put in gear on my 1998 sporster 1200


Getting this, to not be so jerky, may be as easy as adjusting the clutch. open up the derby cover and ..

1)Collapse the adjuster on the cable sleeve all the way.

2)Pull the lever against the bar and hold it there with slight force.

3)Turn the pushrod adjuster bolt in while holding the lever against the bar lightly until it starts to force the lever away for some distance. (Do this more than once to get the feel). While keeping light pressure on the lever back the adjuster bolt out just until the lever touches the bar again and then another little bit, about 1/2 turn , then lock it.

4)Adjust the cable freeplay at the lever for 1/16" free play.

You should be good to go .

Always adjust the clutch on a cold bike for best results.

**It's better to adjust the clutch so that it starts to grab at least an inch or more from the bar for complete disc separation, which translates into better/quieter shifting.Using this method, you can "feel" where the lever is going to grab with a little practice.

Buy yourself a cheap 11/16 deep well socket and weld a nut on top of it. This makes the perfect tool for the adjuster lock nut. You can then use an Allen wrench inside the socket and a wrench on the nut you have just welded on. Makes it a lot simpler.

You can also see "clutch adjustment by the book" in this same forum found-- HERE.. Hope this helps Fix Ya up..

Moen Single Handle Shower faucet can't get cylinder out


New moen cartridges for tub/showers come with a handy white plastic tool to aid in old cartridge removal. One end is squared off for a wrench, the other is slotted to place over the old cartridge in the wall after the clip has been removed. Place onto cartridge and use a wrench to turn several times back and forth. Remove , grab the stem with pliers and give a tug. You want either service part #1225B (pull/push to turn on) or #1222 (just turn knob counterclockwise to turn on. Get the replacement before you proceed.

Removal of the washer control knob


Anyway the model I got on your problem says it is a Refrigerator...but I can help you to remove the Knob on a washer....first you may have to place a flat head screwdriver in between the knob base and the control panel ..(You may want to place a piece of cloth against the control panel to prevent scratching the surface of same)..slowly force the screwdriver further under the knob alternating form side to side gently lifting up as you do.....(all of this is is premised on the the notion that there is no set screw in view anywhere on the knob)....also most all washer knobs are held in place on the shaft with a little spring loaded retainer that pushes out against the inside of the knob so it does not easily come off.

Hope this helps...please rate me...the Fang
