You could always drill them out using a drill that is a fraction smaller in diameter.

Broken antenna

The best way is to use an EZ-out drill bit or extractor tool like Pro Grabit. I have gotten a few out just using small pick tools and gradually turning it as long as it is not cross threaded.

Change lightbulb in Advantium SCB1001 KSS01

I was also told that I would have to pay a technician to come out to replace the interior light bulb in my Advantium speedcook microwave, but after reading the instructions from the tip below, I was able to take care of it myself.
I ordered the parts online and , after unplugging and removing the unit from the cabinetry, I was able to follow the instructions as suggested by UNCLEMOE.
The only difference was that there were many more screws holding the cover in place. I removed all of the screws around the top and sides at the front edge of the microwave as well as the screws along the bottom of the sides and around the top and sides of the back panel. There is one additional screw that must be removed before the cover can slide back. This screw is on the right side of the microwave in a silver dollar sized indentation.
Oh, don't forget not to touch the halogen light bulb with your bare hands to avoid shortening the life of the bulb.

It's crazy that GE should expect customers to pay a technician $100 each year to replace a simple lightbulb, but thanks to I was able to do it myself in about 40 minutes with a little help to lift the unit.

as a side note, one of the screws was in so tight that the screw was stripped in an attempt to remove it. A little thing called GRABIT and a power drill took care of that problem in no time. check it out at

Line stuck in my ryobi RLT30CDNB

Try an easy out tool found at any hardware store. First use the appropriate size drill bit out the easy out kit and drill into the damaged part of the screw, then use the easy out tool in a drill in reverse slowlyuntil it grabs the screw and backs it out. You could get some PB blaster lubricant and spray the screws, Trust me yould never use WD-40 again. Hope this helps.

Remove stuck brake drum

you have to get a brake adjusting tool and a screw driver....

put the brake tool in and locate the adjuster wheel, use a screwdriver to release the locking prawl, its tuff but doable.

If there are no access openings to the adjuster, either in the drum or backing plate, then you need to work it off with a few pry bars

My collet nut is stuck and I cannot remove it. Is there a trick to removing a stuck collet nut?

remove all the star head screws, unscrew the top plastic collet holding the plastic outer casing on. take a pair of vise grip locking pliers open the plastic casing just enough to expose the inner shaft inside the casing lock the vice grips onto the metal shaft between the bearing casing and the collet that is stuck enough to hold but not to dent it up. now that the vice grips are locked onto the main shaft get an adjustable wrench and size it to the collet screw size and turn it should come off rather easily or at least mine did just did it as i wrote this then screw the casing back together and happy dremeling hope this helps

I have a Maytag Model MGR5770ADW and it appears that the left side door hinge spring is broken. How do I remove the side panel to investigate? Thanks, Ken

no need to remove the side panel, the door itself lifts off the hinges, and it will be reall obvious, if its broke, theres no servicing it just replace, and its done from the fornt, 2 screws and the hinge falls into the unit ( can grabit from pulling out lower storage drawer. part number (74011141) , might as well replace he 2 hinges one broke whos to say the right one is gonna last much longer

Collet base removal

Try using a tapered wood screw or sheet metal screw as an extractor. Choose one of a size that will let its tip go down into the broken collet and get a grip when you twist it. If that fails, you might use a screw extraction tool.

Replacement of burners charmglow 810-6320B

The only way I was able to get the screws out was to use a 5/16" cobalt drill bit to drill through the center of each screw. Then, and only then, was the GrabIT screw extraction tool able to grip and remove each screw. Of course, I had to break off what was left of the burned out burners first to get easy access to the screws. To replace the burners, remove 3 screws (in an L shaped pattern) from the left side of the burner control panel. I did NOT have to remove the utility shelf to get to these screws. The control panel can then be moved forward about an inch, thereby enabling the new burner tubes to fit into their gas spouts. TIPS: It was easier for me to attach the back of the new burners before trying to attach the fronts. I used new 6-32 machine screws to attach them. You'll need to look from the bottom of the burner control panel when attaching the front of the new burners -- to see better.
