SOURCE: Door latches to microwave broken

I assume you're talking about the spring that keeps tension on the door hooks (latch heads, as they're called by Sharp). When you shut the door, the "hooks" are held down by this spring to actuate the door switches. To fix this, you'll have to separate the door panels. You can download the service manual from my Web site. There's a loop built into the latch head assembly and sometimes the loop breaks. If so, you can drill a tiny hold in it and reattach the spring there. There may also be a loop on the innner door panel to hold the spring. That one can break, too. If it's broken, you'll have to find a way to secure the spring to the panel. If the panel material is thick enough, a tiny screw eye could be inserted, then epoxied overnight to secure it. I've attached a diagram to this message that should help you. If that doesn't help you, I have the service manual for the R1600-series microwaves on my Web site at: http://www.microwavedisplay.com/R1610.pdf Repost if you need more help.

SOURCE: I was trying to clean

I think the main problem with this machine is that the grounds fly all over inside when grinding and combine with the steam and hot water and eventually gum up the moving parts. This causes the latch for the filter basket to lose its grip sometimes and the door pops open during the brewing cycle...I was trying to take apart the slides to clean them out and made the mistake of removing the small screw underneath the left slide. Then the spring popped out and it took about an hour to get it back together, very frustrating. I ended up bending one end of the spring into a slight hook with a needle nose pliers so it would catch better on the "nub" that is connected to the side button. The best way I figured out to clean the slides so far is to blast them out with compressed air periodically for preventative maintenance. I use one of those cans normally used to dust off electronics and insert the straw into the slides.

I just took mine apart, and put it back together. Of the three holes for the screws, there are two smaller and one bigger hole. Align the larger hole on the filter and the base, and the tiny plastic bit and the spring go in to the larger, along with the hollow and larger screw.

This is over a year too late, but perhaps this will help other people in your situation. Here is how the switch assembly should go together:

Le Crueset 1.8-Qt. Enamel on steel whistling teakettle u-shaped metal piece fell out


There are two parts to the whistle - the hinged whistle bit and the black base that is attached to the spout. They are joined by a pin that passes through the base and through a bracket that is fixed above the spout, and through the bottom of the arm on the hinged whistle. Remove the pin - it is a push fit - so you need a rod of the same diameter. It will then all come to pieces. The U shaped metal spring sits in the bracket on the spout - the open end and the slope on the spring to the top. Then put the bits back together and replace the pin! This is tricky but do-able as all the holes have to line up. You need to have plenty of light to see what is going on. Once aligned the pin goes back in okay but don't try to force it. If it doesn't go in your alignment isn't right.

Tip

Maytag MMV4205 door won't stay shut.


After tearing apart my microwave, I found a little spring broke off the latches. Open the door to the microwave, pop off the plastic piece that the latches on the door go through. You will see a spring behind the latch. If the spring is not connected to the latch it won't operate properly. The spring was held onto the latch with a tiny plastic piece that broke off. An easy solution instead of buying a new latch is to heat up one side of the spring without burning yourself and melt it through the latch piece where it was originally connected then put everything back together.
Hope this helps,

Clean a KX-P7100 printer


The paper jam in theKX-P7100 is usually due to the paper tray.

If you pull the paper tray out you'll notice a black piece of plastic (located at the most front) with a cork like material in the middle. Try pushing down on this piece of plastic a few times. If it does not pop up immediately the grease that Panasonic used has become "sticky". The piece of plastic is removed by turning the tray upside down and pushing on the small plastic tabs that hold the black piece of plastic in. Be careful to not loose the spring that is located under the black piece of plastic or break the plastic tabs that hold it in place. Once you get the black piece of plastic out, clean it with que tips and clean the area it slides up and down in. Make sure to remove all the "sticky" grease. Once you get it clean, don't forget to stretch the spring to one more inch. the spring quality is awful at tensile strength. Then place the spring back in its place and push the black piece of plastic back in its place. You can add some light oil to the black plastic to make it slide better. After it is reassembled try pushing down on the black piece of plastic a few times. It should spring up almost immediately. This should take care of the jams that you are experiencing.

In addition, you may have to stretch the 2 big springs under the metal plate in the paper tray to one more inch. To access them, you'll have to unscrew the 3 philips screws under the tray (take a picture before :-)), take away the 2 blue pieces and take out the metal plate.

Now I'm able to print from the media tray without any problem :-).

Hope this helps!

I am trying to put back together my Bernina Activa 130 after it arrived in the mail. The hook fell out in shipping, and now I think I am missing some pieces. I am trying to figure out what else is suppose...


The only parts that should be able to 'fall out' during shipping are the bobbin case and hook/shuttle, assuming the bobbin case was fitted in the first-place. If your machine arrived with the bobbin door open and the round black plastic hook retainer dropped down out of the hook race (on its hinge), the hook can be replaced quite simply and the hook retainer clicked back into position to retain it - you might find it easier to tip the machine back slightly when putting the hook back. If the hook retainer is still in position, just press the flat metal spring on the left of the 'U'-shaped metal retainer and the hook retainer will pop forward allowing you to put the hook in andclose back up. Make sure it clicks back into position. Does this help ???

My dear wife took the lid handle off our breville gourmet wok. The pieces include a screw, a spring and 3 other parts. Im not sure if i put it together properly. Could you help out. Thanks


This is for assembling the Breville Wok lid. This has a built in vent that lets steam escape during cooking. There are 8 pieces not including the glass cover: bolt, metal vent, black O ring, tan round plastic piece, black lid piece (has open/close) on it, spring, clear plastic seal, lid handle.
Order of assembly as follows, starting on inside of glass cover.1. Bolt.2. Metal vent piece sits on top of bolt.3. Black O ring fits snuggly onto of vent piece.Insert what you have assembled against inside of glass cover, bolt poking through topside of glass.4. Add tan plastic piece with 3 prongs going facedown against the glass hole of cover.5. Larger black lid piece goes next. You will need to line up the openings on tan piece and this lid piece so that it sits semi-flush against glass. When complete this piece will turn in place to open/close vent (less than 1/4 turn before stopping).6. Add clear plastic seal to underside of handle.7. Place spring between handle and top of black lid piece and screw together until snug.
Test lid by turning lid piece. It should move back and forth according to the open/close print on top. If no luck, go to step 5 and try again. It is a little tricky, but does work when done correctly.

Oster Power Pro Cordless Clippers I took the blade off, sm. long black plastic piece fell off. Wanted to change blade to ceramic. Can't get it back together don't know where black piece goes. Don't know...


The plastic piece is a blade guide and has a slot down the length of it which the spring locates into. Simply slide the replacement ceramic cutter under the spring

MOUSE CAME APART INCLUDING SPRINGS HOW DO I PUT IT BACK TOGETHER


The Spring goes on the right side of the mouse wheel as it would be pointing at your computer. It supports the wheel to make it spring back when preasure is applied. Place the spring on the axle with the spring forming an spread out "A" (not a "V"). You will see that it falls nicely into the 2 little tower mounts. my real problem was with the other little piece of bent wire that fell out. This is the part that makes the snaping fealing as you scroll the wheel. This connects directly on the plastic part that is mounted on the scroll wheel. If you look at that plastic part you will see a small hole. One end goes in that hole & the other rounded end goes to the splines on the wheel itself. I hope this helps, it better that just saying go buy another.

I need to rewind the spring and starter pull cord. I need to understand how all the parts fit together


I had the same problem. I had to take it apart and rewind it manually. To do this:
Step 1:
There are 4-bolts to remove on the orange plastic section the screw into the motor housing (one of them is hidden inside the orange plastic housing, you'll see an opening for it). There are also 3 screws in the black plastic exhaust housing that screw into the orange plastic housing, find those and remove.

Step 2:
Carefully remove the engine from the plastic housing. I didn't disconnect the throttle cable or the electric wires (points) just kind of worked around them.

Step 3:
The mechanism is kind of crappy. There are two black pieces with a spring in the middle, and a metal disc on the bottom with a ribbon coil on the underside of it. The top plastic piece is what turns the flywheel when you pull the cord. The spring in between connects the two plastic piece. This is probably what popped out. There is a piece sticking up on one end, which inserts into the hole in the top black plastic piece. If you remove the little guardrail things you can probably remove just that piece. KEEP TENSIONS ON THE PULL CORD. Once you remove that top black piece, it should start to recoil.

Step 4:
If it did recoil, put the spring back in the top plastic piece, and then put the plastic/spring combo back into the the bottom plastic piece, there is a little groove for the bottom of the spring to slide into. Then put the little guardrail screws back on. Make sure the big metal wire thing hasn't slipped down into the shaft of the weed whacker. That needs to go back into the motor, as it is what gets spun and in turn spins the strings. As you start to put the motor back in, you may have to pull on the pull cord a few times to get the flywheel and plastic piece to line up. Once you hear the motor start to catch, then you should be able to wiggle it back into place and put back all of the screws. Then give it a shot. If it pulls out again, you may have to drill a new hole into the top black plastic piece for that spring to slide into (this is the crappy design part).

Step 5:
If the pull cord didn't retract, you need to remove the other two pieces (lower black plastic piece and metal disc with ribbon). The metal ribbon has a nub on the outside that hooks onto a plastic piece in the bottom of the orange plastic housing. You'll need to wind it around once or twice to "charge" the ribbon, then wind the string back on the black plastic piece. The black piece should slide into the center of the metal disc and catch the inside of the ribbon. Once you get these two together, again, make sure the metal ribbon piece is wound once past normal and then you have to slide both parts together down into the housing catching the metal ribbon loop over the orange plastic nub. It's tricky, it took me a few tries. Once you get that you can try and test the pull cord, you'll see it pull out and feel it retract due to that metal ribbon. Then go back and do step 4, where you put the upper black plastic piece with spring back into place and replace the little metal guardrails.

This whole thing took a few tries, and the pull cord still gets stuck out. It's a major pain to say the least, but after the 5th time fixing it, you'll be a real pro.
