One end goes on the pin located on the side of the bottom platform then, through the pulley, then to the end of the spring.But this is different on different models, so please post back make and model for complete detailed instructions.

Tines wont turn handle grip flopped down no spring tension

Could be your cable has broken or come undone or the spring has broken. I had to replace my cable and had to order this cable and I was in a hurry so I picked up a cable for a lawn mower cut it in half and got a package of wire sleeves and put them on and crimped them with a vice grip.
Machine works good now.

Broken door spring on kitchenaid dishwasher


Please read our safety information before attempting any testing or repairs. Before repairing the door springs, unplug the dishwasher or shut off the power at the fuse box or breaker panel to avoid an electrical shock hazard.
The door opens and closes with the aid of springs. If the springs (or the cables that connect them on some dishwashers) break, the door will drop open hard. The door will also be heavier when closing. If the door drops open, it may also bend the door hinges out of shape resulting in a door that does not close properly and possibly leaks.

When replacing the springs or cables, all of them should be replaced at the same time.
To access the door springs and cables remove the lower panel located beneath the door. The panel is usually held in place with two screws either above or below the panel. It may be necessary to first open the door to the dishwasher to get to the screws over the panel, then close the door to remove the panel.
There are two common types of spring assemblies. One type connects the springs from a hook on the dishwasher cabinet of to a tang on the door hinge .

My garage door will not open but approx. 8" , no cable broken , chain on track. Today I found that one spring is broken. how hard is it to replace.

I have built many garage doors and installed many door openers. The typical garage door spring is not that hard to replace. I have to have 2 steel rods 1/2 inch in diameter to slowly tighten the spring.

Garage door does not open. goes up about 4 inches. disconnected from opener and still can't open. checked wheels in frame move by hand. opener works when not attached to door.

You probably have a broken torsion spring. If you have a spring on a shaft above the door (usually 2 if it is a double door) then you have a torsion spring. From this shaft you have a 2 cables wound on a drum going down to the bottom of the door. If it is a single door, then this cable will be loose. If you have a double door, then most likely one spring is broken. This allows the door to open slightly, until one side is trying to lift(good spring) and the other side cannot (broken spring) Unless you are an EXTREMELY CONFIDENT DIYer then you should leave this do a door repairman as winding a torsion spring is dangerous, and can break bones or even kill. Now if your door has extension springs on each side of the track,with a pully and cable, then these can easily be replaced yourself. Check that cables are connected to the springs and the door and that one didn't break or come loose or cable off pully and binding.

My 08 Road King throttle feels as if there is a broken spring inside and will not return to the forward position. this causes it to idle too high. Is there a "home repair" for this

It's probably one of the cables, probably the idle cable, has a broken strand in the braided cable. Loosen the two bolts that hold the front brake master cylinder onto the handlebars and slide it towards the center of the handlebar and temporarily tighten it there.

Now take the two bolts that hold the right handlebar switch housing together. Carefully lift the top of the of the switch housing up. There's some wiring in there and it won't come completely off. You can check your cables from here but you may have to loosen the cable adjusters a bit. Carefully roll the throttle to the open position and the idle cable end will roll up into view. Look for broken strands of cable. If you find any, replace the cable.

Replace the cable by loosening the adjuster to get as much slack as you can. Disconnect the cable from the throttle sleeve. Remove the ferrell from the end of the cable and work the cable out of the lower switch housing. Sometimes this can be difficult because the cable has a spring clip that holds it in. Just spray the inside of the hole on the bottom were the cable goes in and keep wiggling it. Take the air cleaner cover, air filter element, and air filter backing plate off and you''ll see where the cables connect on that end. The idle cable is the one with the spring on that end and it will be loose. Replace the cable and reassembly is the reverse of disassembly.

Be careful not to pinch any wires when reassembling the switch halves. Make sure you get the throttle cables installed and adjusted correctly. Adjust each cable to where they have just a small amount of slack in EACH cable. When you twist the throttle and release it, it should snap closed. Failure to insure proper throttle operation could cause lose of control of the vehicle causing severe injury or death to the rider.

Good Luck

The door on my Okeefe and Merritt antique stove will not close snugly against the frame. There is a slight gap at the top of the door. I have been told that the spring inside the stove needs to be...

O'Keefe and Merritt is always a challenge to the inexperienced because, although two stoves of the same year and model can look identical, there are subtle differences in both, especially in the door spring mechanism, that make it difficult to explain without seeing the stove and/or asking you a series of questions in person. Here it goes anyway: Some models have access panels that are visible when you pull out the broiler drawer. This makes changing a spring a breeze, as long as you know which spring you need. A sample of a broken one, or and intact one always helps when buying a replacement. Other models operate on a system of hooks, cables and springs. These often require a skilled technician to come out and repar for you. Most of the time, the door has to be physically removed from the frame so that new cables (and sometimes rods) can be installed on the hinge and then the door would have to be re-installed fishing the cables through a small opening on the bottom of the stove. A spring then attaches to the cable and the hook of the spring is then attached to one of three small aligned holes on the bottom stove panel.
One constant i s that there are 2 sets of springs for each of the door panels. You are right, there are springs in the middle. And you are also right that the white panel removes from the door after you remove the truss head sheet metal screws.
You might want to give me a call and chat about this further at RMR Company, Inc (RMR Stove Company) 619-231-2808

Door spring has gone slack and the door falls heavily. Any advice?

Remove the bottom access plate. Reach inside and find the spring and re-attach it. If the spring is broken buy a replacement spring. There should be 2 springs,one on each side.

Door drops when opened

your door's hinge link is broken

Pull your dishwasher from under counter (you may need to disconnect hoses and power connnections, so turn off power at the circuit breaker). Look for the broken rope-like item and replace it. Use the other side as an example on how to re-install the link. Attach link to spring, hook spring back into frame/chassis, threaded link through pulleys, attach other end of link onto door then reinstall dishwasher under counter. My replacement link package came as a pair, so replace both at the same time. The other side may still be attached and functioning, but will most likely show signs of wear.

Actually I found out that for a LG dishwasher it is as likely to be the cable/cord attached to the spring and door. This a very odd setup in that this cable is made of nylon cord, and not any thicker than a round shoelace! It clearly should be metal cable, and it's not that hard to replace the nylon stuff with steel. Anyway, it is worth it to pull the unit out and open the side panel to see if in facts it's a broken cord or spring first before ordering any parts.
