You can find little rubber pad things like that at a local hardware store. they usually have stick on the bottom so you can stick right on. or get a notebook fan pad, something like this. staples or office depot maybe target or wal mart too.

One of the bottom aluminum and rubber feet on which the subwoofer sits has gone missing, where can I get hold of a replacement Thanks

Unless you contact the parent company its close to impossible to get that feet. But you can buy a set of four rubber feet at any hardware store and replace them all.
The feet come off when one tries to push a heavy sub like Velodyne instead of lifting it off the floor and placing them . The rubber grip is so good on the floor and when we push the top part of the Sub the feet rip off.

My 02 altima idles high then low repeatdely but only when in park it goes between 1000

Vacuum leak can cause this. Sometimes one of those rubber hoses, that range from three quarter inch and down in diameter, located under the hood can come off, break,or get loose at a connection. You sure want to rule this out first.

The hood on my 2002 Chrysler Sebring closes but doesn't lock up. It stays but doesn't go down all the way like it is supposed to.

There is a black rubber stopper corkscrew on each side of the radiator support directly above the headlights, make sure they are not spun up too high. Try spinning them down a turn or two and make sure you use enough force to actually latch the hood. Drop it from about 2 feet up if necessary. It is safer to drop the hood than to gently close it and press down. Pressing down can cause dents.

I lost one of the four round rubber "feet". Trying to balance it on various bits and pieces is maddening. Where can I find this replacemetn part?

go to home depot look in section for stuff to protect floors from furniture scratches, in that section you will find little stick on rubber discs or felt or cork if they are too big just trim them down. or get small rubber faucet washer and hot glue it or supper glue it to spot where foot is missing

The bottom of my computer gets extremely hot. what causes this? and how can i fix this issue before it ruins my computer?

For starters, don't put it on any soft surfaces, like bed, your lap, or anything of that sort. A laptop has small "feet", and when placed on a hard surface they elevate it so that there's some air flow from the bottom of the laptop case. If you put it on a soft surface, the material gets pressed against the air inlets and blocks the air flow.
If you work a lot with your laptop on your lap or bed or such, get yourself a laptop stand on which you would put it, or use a substitute, like a kitchen cutting board of suitable size.

If however the laptop is used on a hard surface and still gets very hot, it can mean a couple of things:
- the "feet" under the laptop have lost their rubber ends, which give them the appropriate height
- the air ducts inside the case are filled with dust residue, making it harder for the radiators to disperse heat.
If your rubber "feet" un-glued themselves, it will be hard to replace them with exact equivalents. You can try sticking some rubber/silicone self-stick bumpers used in furniture to dampen the doors.
If dust is suspected, compressed air can be used to blow it away through the air inlets and outlets (the latter usually are grilles on the side or rear of the machine).

My durabook seems to get very hot to touch. I hear the fan running. Is there more than one fan..or is that even the problem?

They tend to get hot, its not a problem unless it starts to cause problems such as random crashes or shut downs, If its an old notebook then try using a can of compressed air to get rid of some dust. Either way what surface are you using it on? because id only use it on a flat hard surface like a table if not already and use something to raise the back of it by an inch or two more then what the rubber feet already do. Most people will assume laptops will run fine on your lap or bed etc how ever this is not the case, this will cause more heat and premature problems. I've made something for mine so i can use it on my lap when im in bed, its a piece of flat thin plywood around 22inchW/15inchL for my 17' lappy with halve inch rubber door stops glued in place where my laptops rubber feet would go, this reduced my overall heat from hot to touch to barely warm in fact i think the heat im feeling now is from where my hands have rested on the laptop :) laptops will run hot strait from the box if not well ventilated.

Holmes HM5601 quit working

I had the same problem with my Holmes HM5601 humidifer unit - right out of the box. I almost returned the unit to the store, but was able to figure-out the problem. Not enough water had been filling the heating section (where that black knob-like protrusion is) and the lack of enough water had caused the unit to shut-off soon after plugging it in. The problem is in valve at the bottom of the water tank! The valve is a factory defect. It needs to open more when you sit the water tank onto the base so water fills the reservoir. I had solved the problem by going to the hardware store and purchasing some small, rubber pads or feet. These rubber pads are the type used to place under things where you want to protect a table-top from being scratched or you want the item not to slide too easily on a table-top. These rubber feet or pads have an adhesive on the bottom of them. Find the size that matches the diameter of the valve stem on the bottom of the water tank. Once installed, the valve should open and close with your finger without the rubber pad interferring with the operation of the valve. The pad, if installed properly, makes contact with the water reservoir base when you placed the water tank down onto that base. The valve open a bit more allowing water to pass-thru and fill the water reservoir. Water fills the heating section as needed and the unit runs perfectly after! The round rubber pad I had used was about an 1/8 inch thick and 1/2 inch in diameter.
