Question about Black & Decker String Trimmer Cordless 12" 18V

Screws do not hold hood to base

The screws that hold the hood at the bottom of the trimmer, will not hold. There are no threads on the base to hold the screws. I took them out to see if they would hold the hood and they don't.

From your description, would you say that the threads on the base holes were stripped out? If there were no threads originally, the only way screws can work is if the screws are actually bolts that had a nut attached on the other side. If there is enough clearance, you should be able to use a longer bolt and a nut to fix the problem. Another way to remedy this problem if you want to use a screw is to use a larger diameter screw. This would allow the screw to dig into the wall of the hole in the base and hold it together. The first solution is better because it doesn't cause additional damage to the plastics and would allow the pieces to be attatched and reattached later multiple times without any further problems

Get a tube of five minute epoxy at your local hardware store. Fill each screw hole with epoxy and then insert the screws. Let it sit for a bit and you will be back in business.

Sunbeam repair manual


Hi...Before trying to take it apart, you should verify that the paddle in the bread pan is moving or not. Take the pan out of the machine and try to turn the paddle by hand. It should turn free and smooth with little effort. If you can't turn it by hand then the bearing is frozen and the bread pan needs to be replaced. (no fix for it).

If the paddle moves freely, then the belt in the bottom of the unit is loose or broken. Reply to this thread and we'll help you out!

The 5 cap screws that hold the bezel ring over the throttle slide: do they actually thread into something?


These cap screws thread into the basket inside the hull of the WingMan. This basket holds the mechanical parts and the potentiometers. If you wish to take a look on the interior of the hull (or case), it's better to open below; the bottom plate is secured by 5 Phillips screws located in the middle of the cushioning rings - except one of them, located nearby. Be careful.

I took my oster trimmers apart now i dont know how to put them back together can u help me


Unfortunately, Oster does not publish any real maintenance manuals. Basically, if you only took apart the cutting blades and the oscillator, it's not too hard. If you tried to take apart the electric motor, that's a whole different story. If it's just the blade assembly, carefully align the blade assembly with the groove pointing into the trimmer handle and hold the blades together so that they are parallel, not crooked and reinsert the screws. You will see how the blades align, based on the wear marks on the bottom blade guide. If you took apart the oscillating arm, then line up the cam pin with the round hole in the arm, then replace the screws that attach the top blade to the oscillating arm. You may have to push in the tension arm so that you can align the screws with the threaded holes on the handle first. Final step is to screw the bottom blade guide back onto the handle, again align the guide with the blades so that they are parallel and not crooked. The best way to do this is to start threading the screws, then before tightening them all the way, align the blades first. If none of this works, go to this website: http://www.osterstyle.com/CustomerService.aspx and locate an authorized Oster dealer/support center near you. You'll probably have to mail the clippers in to one of the sites.

The trimmer is not cutting the way it should, the bottom blade seems out of place and I cannot put it back in place


Conair trimmers are only good for about a year and they are hard to put back once you have messed with them. does your blade pop off or does it have two phillips screws holding it in? If you take the blade off completely you should see two arms that are in there, you have to place the blades back on correctly and hold them together while putting the screws back in. be very careful not to tighten the screws too much. Oil your blades with 3-1 oil and then turn them on. adjust the trimmer and see if everything is level, if it is try cutting withem and see what happens. If the motor sounds good but the blades are pulling your hair rather then cutting it then you need to replace your trimmers because your blades are daul.

How do i remove the outer assembly spool on a troy built gas trimmer tb575ss


If you are talking about the side where the clutch is, there is a Torx screw inside the hollow part of the clutch housing. Using a #20 Torx bit, loosen screw. If this is the first time on this screw it will be tight and the drive shaft will turn with it. You will have to remove top of cylinder head and put something soft inside the cylinder to stop piston from moving up and down; usually a towel and something stiff like a screwdriver to hold it from moving.
After clutch housing is removed, the clutch itself is threaded and by holding the shaft with pliers you can unscrew the clutch.
Past this, just screws holding the plastic housing.

How to remove rechargeable battery for norelco 7864


hi minglim, welocme to the forum!
    Replacing a Norelco Shaver Battery Things You'll Need:Torx screwdriver set Rechargeable Ni-Cd AA battery 1)Slide up the sideburns trimmer on the shaver .2)Try the various torx head screwdriver sizes to find the fit for the two screws holding the top of the back shaver cover on. Unscrew the two screws that are under the sideburns trimmer that hold the back of the shaver on. On some Norelco shavers, the back will now slide off if you apply downward pressure on the shaver's back. Other Norelco shavers have one or two torx screws on the base of the back cover on the shaver; if so, unscrew them also. Place the screws in a safe place. 3)Take the back cover off the shaver. Some shavers may have a strap fastening the battery down. Unfasten the strap if there is one. Take out the battery. 4)Replace the old battery with a new rechargeable Ni-Cd AA battery. Re-fasten the battery holding strap if there was one. 5)Replace the back shaver cover and re-screw in all the torx screws,

My oster 76 clippers will kick out the two screws that hold the blade holder on


do the screws undo or do the brass inserts pull out of the body housing which the retaining screws fit into.
if the screws undo put some thread lock on the threads.
if its the brass inserts you will need to replace the mainbody.

Electic trimmer


You're going to take off like 20 screws including the ones that hold the handle and the hood at the base of the blade. You open it like a clamshell. There is a black plastic cover at the very bottom that covers the gear wheels (one tiny wheel that comes from the motor and a large wheel that actually moves both blades back and forth). The black plastic cover is no attached with screws. You just remove it so you can get to the gears. Now you oil and manipulate the large gear wheel until it comes loose and you can see the blades move back and forth. Put the whole thing back together and you are ready to go!

How to change lamp in AGFA Arcus 2 flatbed scanner?


http://www.uktsupport.co.uk/scanner/agfa/arcus.htm#a2lamp

  • Turn off the scanner power switch and disconnect the power plug. Wait at least 15 minutes to allow the unit to cool down.
  • Unscrew the two screws at the back of the base.
  • Pull the SCSI board out enough to disconnect the ribbon cable that threads through the opening in the base (on the right).
  • Remove the two screws from the upper portion of the back of the base.
  • Remove the Transparency Option (TPO) from the base.
  • Remove the two screws from the top back of the base. These screws will be visible when the Transparency option is removed.
  • Remove the two screws from the top front of the base and lift the plastic housing off the scanner.
  • Move the carriage optical assembly backward until you can reach the lamp.
  • Remove the two screws from the top of the optical assembly that covers the bulb and remove the black cover.
  • Lift the lamp from the socket, working one end, then the other.
  • Replace the lamp with a replacement lamp. One replacement lamp is provided with the scanner and others are available through Agfa Parts Order.
  • Return the lamp cover the original position and replace the two screws.
  • Replace the plastic housing and replace the four screws holding the housing.
  • Thread the ribbon cable of the Transparency Option through the base and plug back into the SCSI board.
  • Return the board to the base and tighten the two screws. This insures a slack cable that won't be punctured when screws are put in to attach the transparency module to the base unit.
  • Replace the two screws in the back of the base to secure the Transparency Option to the base.
