Apart from buying a parts binocular it is hard to get what you are looking for. You could try Surplus Shed in the US. They sell 'grab' bags of screws and other small parts. Not expensive and you may get lucky.

The only other alternative is to contact a specialist repair shop such as Kay Optical in the UK.

SOURCE: B/L ZEPHYR 7X35 HARD TO ROTATE CENTER KNOB FOCUS?

Over time the grease in the central pivot shaft hardens to restric the rotation of the focusing wheel. Heat from a hair dryer combined with a little WD-40 can ustally re-soften the grease permitting the wheel to turn slightly. Working the wheel back and forth over a short period of time should get it to work again easily.

In sewing mode the motor turns but needle does not move. I have checked bobbin & upper thread - any help?


1. Try to turn the hand wheel. Does the needle move?
2. Make sure the center wheel on the hand crank is tight.
Try the hand wheel now. If you still don't have luck try this.
3. Loosen the center wheel on the hand wheel. There is a small screw on the center wheel on the front or side. Loosen it until it almost comes out.
4. Now tighten the center wheel. (clockwise) Does the needle move if you move the hand wheel? If it does you can tighten the small screw.
5. If this doesn't do the job you will have to take the cover to the motor off. The motor has a bolt to loosen. As you loosen the bolt you can move the motor until it tightens the belt and makes it aligned as well. Run the motor slowly with the foot pedal and adjust the motor until it operates at it's highest speed. Now tighten. Replace all covers.
6. The belt is sometimes in need of replacing but not usual. You will know when you take the panel off.

Have a fridgiaire model ffhs2622msu and the ice maker has just stopped working, what could be the problem? Purchased 3mos ago.


Hello Cynthia;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service refrigeration technician.

1.) Frozen Fill Tube - You may have a frozen water fill tube. In the back of your freezer there is a plastic tube that comes out of the back freezer wall. Inspect this tube to insure it is not frozen.
25521407-mskwokwzhast4xqc3ipc0uws-3-0.jpg

Fix - Back off the two screws on the top. Remove the bottom screw. Lift the ice maker up and pull away from the wall. With a hair dryer defrost the fill tube.

2. ) Ice Jam or Rotating Finger Jam (Broken) - This is common. Feel around on the top for this condition.

3.) Broken Plastic Gears or Burned out Motor. The front white cover just pops off. With a butter knife wedge the white cover off.
25521407-mskwokwzhast4xqc3ipc0uws-3-2.jpg Inspect the center of the gear wheel. If there is no gap then it is broken.

Lets jump start the ice maker. On the lower right there are two holes marked "T" & "H". With a short piece of electrical wire, strip 1/2" off each end. Insert the stripped ends into these holes. Note you nay have to push the freezer door switch in to activate. As the wheel starts to turn wait 5 seconds, then remove the wire.

4.) Burned Control Circuit - This happens. Any electrical component can fail at any time.
25521407-mskwokwzhast4xqc3ipc0uws-3-5.jpg I do not know what you paid for this icemaker, but you can go into eBay and purchase a new one for about $40.00. Part #: 5304445222 Substitution: 241798224

Can't put the wheel back on zr750 zephyr. Seems like there are too many spacers.


Did it come off with those spacers on it? Are the spacers on the same way they came off? If they are not on the right way or in the right order or side they wont fit the way they were intended. I had a problem like that before when i was fixing a bike i switched the spacers by accident and the front disc brake was hitting the caliper.

I have an rca hdlp6iw51 and i found a color wheel on ebay but i dont know how to change it does anyone have any advice


Follow this steps:
1. Take the back panel off of your set, using your Phillips head screwdriver, to remove any screws. 2. Remove the projector lamp. You can reach the color wheel without doing it, but you are less likely to damage the projector lamp if you take it out. Loosen the screws at the base: depending on your DLP's brand, the screws may come out, or may just loosen. If they come out, set them in a safe place before removing the lamp. If not, just pull the entire lamp out, once the screws will not loosen further. 3. Take out the panel that is connected to the cable outlets, using the screwdriver to take out any screws. Pull the panel until the cables, attached from the inside, run out of slack.
4. Remove the screws at the bottom of the panel, in the center, and any screws connecting this panel to the outer case of your DLP. The number and location of these screws will vary depending on your DLP's brand.

  • 5 Remove the screws at the bottom of the panel, in the center, and any screws connecting this panel to the outer case of your DLP. The number and location of these screws will vary depending on your DLP's brand.
  • 6 Pull out the entire center unit, pulling gradually. Then, unplug the power cable from the main set (this is generally blue and brown). Remove the sensor switch and any cables joining the center unit to either side of the set.
  • 7 Take out the plug from the cover of the color wheel. In most brands, it will have a black and blue wire connected to a green circuit board. Then, remove any cables coming out of the wheel. Depending on the brand, the screws may be small enough to require the jeweler's screwdriver.
  • 8 Remove the screws holding the color wheel cover in place. Remove the cover, then take out the screws holding the wheel in place. If tape is holding the wheel, just pull on the wheel until it comes free.
  • 9 Put the new wheel into the slot. You do not want to touch the wheel, or you will blemish it and leave impressions that will be visible when the light shines through it. Re-insert the screws. Then, replace the cover, making sure that the wire jacks are in the same places.
  • 10 Reassemble the DLP television, then plug the set into the wall, and turn on the power.

    My Zephyr hood model zto-m79s lights don't work. The unit was installed in 2007. Sometimes they sputter, flashing briefly, then nothing. Do I need a service call or can I fix it myself? Nancy


    Try taking out the bulbs and wiping with a clean dry cloth. Sometimes when bulbs get hot the connection loosens, when you screw them back in do not over tighten.
