This was a very poor design from the factory ..The clips attach to the trim ring at the factory by plastic welding (MELTING) them in place to the stanchion's, in working on many of these sometimes you can super glue them back in place, but you will have to remove the trim ring completely to do it. other times i had to just replace the entire ring as it was to far gone to repair Just a bad design guess they didn't think it would ever have to be taken apart

The lamp holder assembly snaps into a hole in the range hood with spring clips. To remove the light bulbs, you simply push and turn, like older, bayonet style automotive turn signal bulbs. It seems you have broken your lamp holder assembly. Just break the trim ring so it can be removed, or you can try to take it out reverse polish style by releasing the spring clips from the middle inwards. Once the trim ring is loose, you can extract the body of the lamp holder through the hole... the wires will be barely long enough to stick out the hole if you are lucky. If you are crafty, you may fashion a repair on the separated lamp socket assembly. If not, your replacement part number is SV16569. just call nutone-broan at 800-558-1711 and they will be glad to ship you a new lamp shell socket trim assembly.

Whirlpool duet dryer ring around the door keeps u hinging. They are metal and what I've tried is pushing them back in.


The clips are first secured to the ring. Then, the clips themselves go into holes around the door.

They are somewhat spring loaded and you'll need to compress the fingers on the clips to remove them from the holes. Then, position the clips properly on the ring and push the slotted section (on the clips) onto the plastic tabs around the inside of the ring. Then, use a soldering iron to melt the tab heads so the the clips will stay on the ring. Then, just line up the holes on the dryer with the clips and start pushing them back into the holes.

Remember, make sure the clips are aligned properly, else they won't line up with the holes.

Good luck!

Why is my duet whirpool washer door not cycling through. It seems locked open


Remove the panel beneath the door (2 or 3 screws). Reach up, there is a little "ring" beneath the door lock. Pull this down, it releases the mechanism. I found this at the Appliance Guru website.

    Remove stock cd player from 06 ford f150


    1. Remove the center trim panel around the radio and HVAC controls.
    Open the ash tray and pull on each corner of the trim panel. The 1st time you do this, it will be very hard to release the spring clips. Only need to pull out about 3/4"

    2. Once both lower corner spring clips are pulled out, work you way up each side, there are 3 spring clips on each side of the trim panel. Be careful with the top, the wires to the Passenger Airbag Deactivation indicator are very small.

    After the panel is puled loose, release the connector to the PAD indicator at the top, and undo the connector to the cigar lighter ( and park aid / traction control buttons if applicable ) and release the cam over connectors on the HVAC panel.

    Once you get to this point the radio is held in with 4 hex head screws

    The window fell off it rollers


    1. Remove all door inside handles.
    2. Remove the door inside locking rod knob.
    3. On styles with door pull handles, remove the screws inserted through the handle into the door panel.
    4. On styles with remote control mirror assemblies, remove the remote mirror escutcheon and disengage the end of the mirror control cable from the escutcheon.
    5. On styles equipped with switch cover plate in the door armrest, remove the screws securing the cover plate, then disconnect the switches and cigar lighter, if so equipped, from the harness connectors.
    6. Remove the remote control cover plates and remove the exposed screws securing the cover plate to the door inner panel.
    7. On styles with integral armrest, remove the screws inserted through the pull cup into the armrest hanger support. On some styles it may be necessary to remove the screws behind the armrest deflector or courtesy lamp remote control cover plate. On styles with armrest applied after the door trim installation, remove the armrest to door inner panel attaching screws.
    8. On styles with with two piece trim panels, disengage the retainer clips at the front and rear of the upper trim panel. Remove the upper trim panel by lifting upward and sliding slightly rearward to disengage the the front door inner panel at the beltline.
    9. On styles with electric switches located in the door trim panel, disconnect the wire harness at the switch assembly.
    10. To remove the lower trim panel, remove the attaching screws along the upper edge of the lower trim panel. Then starting at a lower corner, insert a pry type tool between the door inner panel and the trim panel and disengage the retaining clips down both sides and across the bottom. On styles with courtesy lamps or reading lamps located in the trim panel, disconnect the wire harness at the lamp assembly.
    11. On styles with one piece trim panels, remove all the clips around the perimeter of the trim panel. Push the trim panel downward and outboard to disengage it from the door inner panel at the beltline. Disconnect any courtesy lamp wire harnesses, if so equipped and remove the trim panel from the door.
    12. Installation is the reverse of removal. On styles with adjustable trim supports at the beltline, the door trim panel can be adjusted in or out so as not to restrict door window operation.
