Rubbish bin lid not working

Push button lid on rubbish bin is broken. Have a rod and a spring with two different ends. When you push the button the bin releases the lid at the front which must remove pressure from the spring forcing the lid to pop up in a hinge like manner.

    Thanks for the suggestion but it's not the same as what you are describing. It is a thin metal rod that goes through a hole on each side of the bin lid so it can lift up and down. When you put the bin lid down, it latches in at the front with a simple button. When this button is pressed the lid should open. There is a spring with two arms approx 45 degrees apart that slips over the rod which would cause it to open once the latch at the front of the bin is released by pushing the button.

    Hi Guys, Thank you all for your comments but it looks as if we are referring to different things. The post is probably in the wrong category. See attached pictures to see if they help explain the issue. Maybe I am missing parts? I just cannot get the lid to spring up as it is supposed to when you press the button. Appreciate your help.

SOURCE: if I push and hold pressure on start button Kenmore will run ?

Check your door switch as well, but you may want to start by replaceing the start button. You should hear a small click when the button is pushed down.

SOURCE: I push the grind button and nothing happens.

If you have an air compressor... use it. The fine dust can get in to the safety switch mechanism and create an insulation to the switch that prohibits current flow. If you DON'T have an air compressor (or cans of compressed air available at office supply stores), clean it as best you can with an old tooth brush and blowing really hard, then use a vacuum.

SOURCE: water filter won't come out when I push the button

Push button? It should be a turn to the left to remove if it is a whirpool located at the bottom. These are twist out not push to release. The only push to releases are made by electrolux.

have you emptied the rubbish bin lately ?
Apple systems keep the files deleted previously still on the hard drive but does not show them to the user as they are displayed only in the rubbish bin. This may be the cause of your lack of space.

With dell keyboard. When I push a key it will not

Had the same problem. Get a pointy knife & run it up & down between the keys. You will be amazed at the RUBBISH that comes out. Then hold it upside down, & with a stiff bristled brush, clean out the rest of the RUBBISH over a sheet of newspaper.

Kenmore Elite Oasis is making a loud banging noise during spin cycle. Also just noticed a small amount of water under the washer. All other cycles appear to be working fine.

Check the Vibration damper rods to be sure that...
1. They are there and mount is solid.
2. If they are broken in 1/2.
3. The plastic knuckle mounts are not missing/broken.
4. There is oil in the shock absorber/spring section of the rods.

Also - there are suspension springs on the bottom of the tub that could be broken and/or missing.

Replace/repair as necessary.

How to load Arrow T25 Staple Gun

at the back end of the handle, there is a retainer spring loaded clip. Push it in, then push it downward toward the base of the stapler, the clip should then release the spring, pull the rod with the spring completely out, slide a row of staple in where the rod came out, ONLY ONE ROW, then insert the rod with the spring back in and push it firmly in, and lift it upward to engage the lock. and fire away... Hope this gets your working

Take the battery off, and to the left of the battery connetion tabs is a small gold button, push and hold for 10 seconds. It should start up after doing this.

Bottom of dirt container doesn't stay closed

The catch/latch that is on the bottom of the bin button release has likely broken.  
If you take out the canister (as when you are dumping the bin), and flip it upside down and then squeeze the bin release button, you will see that it moves a rod inside the cyclone assembly.  At the end of this rod is a plastic (plastic.. redundant, as the entire Dyson is practically plastic) latch that catches onto the bin's lid and locks it in place.  A broken latch means it doesn't lock the lid in.
What you need is a replacement latch.  Note that the "Bin Release Button + Rod assembly" that are sometimes sold on ebay do *not* contain the latch at the end of the rod.  Also the bottom bin assembly does not contain the required parts.
The cyclone assembly should have the full bin release rod + latch, so if you can't find the latch, then a new cyclone assembly would work also (but will cost more, obviously).
