The quick answer is don't use a dryer is any of its components are not functioning properly.

It sounds like you culd fix this by doing as you describe. The sensor itself may have been damaged, so that needs to be checked after you make the repair.

Make sure you unplug the dryer when you work on it.

We take turns replacing microwave ovens where I work. The latest one, a GE JES1358WL, stopped working after opening the door while running on a one-push (1 minute) start setting, and the control panel is...


Sounds like part of the peg broke off and is left inside the recepter slot area where the sensor switch is. If it is the lower door plastic hook thing (inside bottom) that broke off, it is possible to re-attatch it to the door if you save the broken piece. Drill a small hole the size of a small wire or nail you have lying around to make a splint - Cut the nail or wire to about 1/2" to use it as a hidden "bone" or skeletal support inside the broken plastic. Glue the nail half way into the broken plastic using modelers glue. Closely align the nail peg to where the plastic broke off and mark it for drilling. Drill carefully making sure you are centered so that your wire "bone" will allow proper alignment of your plastic. Insert the pinned piece into the newly drilled hole checking for alignment, if it looks close enough you can glue it in place and you should have a strong enough repair. Dangerous to use a wooden peg to fool the internal switch. As it will be running even when the door is open and you don't want to get zapped.

Xbox controller won't connect to xbox


If it's a wired controller, make sure the wire inside is not damaged (If it's cut or torn) you don't have to take it apart, also if the end of the usb is missing a piece of the metal conductor that could be another reason. If it's wireless make sure you hit the sensor button on the controller then the xbox, it should be a round button to the left of the disc tray (vertically standing). Or below it (horizontally sitting). It should work if not, check batteries. Hope this helped.
Good Luck. Message me if you have any more questions.

Take apart the door you might have a broken wire or could be a torn wire or you could check too on the little piece of rubber that covers the wires from the door to the body. .

The guitar lead plug has fallen inside.


The safest way to fix this is to take the amp apart to get at the jack. If the jack is a solid black plastic shape, then you should replace the jack completely. Otherwise you should have access from the side of the jack to remove the piece of hte plug that broke off.

Delphi Nav200 gps problem


There are male and female tabs all around the plastic case of the GPS unit itself. Gently pry and push the case halves in and away from each other. Be careful not to lose your cool, as it is frustrating.

VGB3 leg lock broke


On the velbon vgb 3, the leg locks consist of a lever, one or two pieces of metal and a plastic piece. The metal and plastic pieces rest in a depression against the lever. When the lever is pulled out, pressure against the smaller leg section is released. When the lever is pushed in, pressure against the smaller leg section is exerted, locking the legs in place. On the back side of each joint, there is a phillips head screw which acts as a stop to keep the leg section from coming all the way out. When the screw is backed out, the leg section can be removed, exposing the latching mechanism. If the only problem is that the latch mechanism came apart, it can simply be reassembled. If, however, something broke and allowed the latch assemby to come apart, that will have to be dealt with as well. My guess is that the phillips screw may have become loose, and the latch came apart.
