Looking up from underneath the head pop the O-ring that holds the S. Steel grounds cup on, them remove the nuts on the top and the whole piston should then come out from the bottom of the head.

I dropped the lid to the pentair 320 chlorinator for inground pools. The rubber gasket fell out and I don't know where it goes nor does it fit inside the lid. Do the gaskets go inside to screw on lid...


Yes, the o-ring does swell up. I am not really sure what causes that, but the only fix is to replace it. It goes inside the cap. Only use teflon or silicone based lube on it.

My 2004 Armada is leaking oil right above the oil filter, at a joint where there's a pressed steel piece. No, I'm not using the wrong filter, and, no, I don't have two (or "no")...


I had the same problem. I took my vehicle to the mechanic. My armada doesn't leak any more. Change the oil filter housing gasket. It cost me $10 for gasket and $45 for labor.

The gasket on a thermostat for the 2002 explorer is a rubber ring instead of the usual gasket,is this correct?


Most newer vehicle have the rubber ring type gaskets now.I know this is not a newer vehicle but say late 90`s and up.If it came in the box with the thermostat then it is more than likely the right one.I know some people will still use a paper gasket along with the rubber ring one.But it should not leak.When you remove the thermostat you should be able to see what your vehicle comes with.Hope this helps.Good luck.

Franke Kitchen Spray Head Part # 4089. Lever on top moves it from stream to spray While on Stream Spray is leaking.... Tried changing washers 1st...then tried new aerotors... still leaking


I have the same problem. By taking off both aerators, I can see that the rubber ring inside the spray head partially disintegrated. Little pieces of rubber even fell out. I can remove the spray head (it twists off; I used a pliers and rubber gloves) but I can't take it apart and even if I did, I don't know if I could replace the rubber ring.

I replaced my Whirlpool Ultraease Undersink Filtration filter model WHEEDF and th Filter 1 of the pair of filters leaks. I have applied teflon tape to the threaded pin of the mounting unit and the leaks...


I would shut water off and relieve pressure. Remove filter houseing and inspect rubber gasket on bath sides, clean it off and clean inside of cap where gasket sets and on top of housing. Make sure there are no rough spot on either surface. If there are you can smooth them out by using fine grit sandpaper,no coarser then 120 grit. Wipe all surfaces clean and apply 5-6 wraps of teflon tape on threads on filter housing. Before you put gasket back in place you can put a light coating of petroleum jelly,vaseiline or similar,on both sides of gasket. wipe off excess. Reinstall filter and housing. tighten securely. Turn water back on and check for leaks. If it still leaks you can tighten a little more. If it still leaks I would replace gasket. Hope this helps.Thanks

I have a solis crema sl-70 whose portafilter leaks and actually flies off if I don't hold it in place as I pull a shot. Is this is small repair problem, or should I replace my machine?


You may just need a new grouphead gasket. This is a rubber ring that fits in the space between the outside of the grouphead and the interior area that houses the dispersion screen. If it's worn or dried out, the pf may not be sealing properly (which would cause the leaking and instability)
The portafilter (pf) handle should line up with a pre-printed indicator line on the group head when it's "locked" in. If you're looking at the machine straight on, and the far side is "12" on a clock face, the handle should be at 6 or 5 o' clock. The pf should "ease" in to the grouphead, not stop with a hard feeling.
The problem might be with the portafilter "ears", or the metal tines that wedge into the grouphead. If they're excessively worn, the pf might not be secured snugly enough to make a seal. A new pf will solve this.
So, first, try a new gasket. Then a new portafilter. Then a new machine :)

IT IS EASY :

Water leaks out of the bottom area of the door


There is a ring that holds the door gasket in place on the outside of the front panel and another ring inside the drum (the ring has a spring on it that allows it to be stretched.

There are 2 tools that LG has that make the ring clamp easy to install/remove, but you can also use 2 pair or needle nose pliers (one to hold the ring at the spring and another to stretch the ring). Just be careful not to damage the gasket.

Also, when ordering the new door gasket, make sure you have your serial number handy. There are 2 versions of the door gasket (depending on the serial number).

Hope this helps, please rate my solution.
