That's the drum safety switch. It can be easily repaired/replaced by someone with minimal knowledge of appliances.

97 Mercury Mountaineer driver side door won't open. Outside handle flops around; inside handle won't open door


Try a slim jim first, down the side of the window. Or AAA or locksmith. If no luck, remove the seat first. Find the screws and bolts around the door handle and arm rest. Most Ford's have screws around the outer side of the panel. I don't believe your's does. The panel lifts or pops off. Once the panel is off, you can reach down and open the door. Just a note. I have done some to where the panel came out in pieces.

Hi my washing machine door wont open, feels like the lock has broke ??


hi have you tried turning machine off at plug for a min then power back on put on a cycle press start. wait till it starts to fill and press stop and hold down the reset button till it beeps and wait till door unlocks. Or a quick way to open the door is unclip the foot kick stopper at bottom front of machine and pull the emergency door open which is a thing peace of hanging plastic. if none of this works try starting a cycle then press stop soon as it starts to fill and turn off on machine not at plug. hope this helps.

The machine keeps giving me an error message with a diagram showing the foot should be down. It is, but it won't sew anything. I can thread a bobbin, so I know there is power to the machine. Also, when...


that presser foot with that black thing that is just flopping around... well when the presser foot is down that thing should be locked into the side hole. when you have the presser foot up, put it into the side hole, fiddle with it, move it around til you find that hole, then drop the presser foot it should be locked on it now. That T presser foot needs that.

This being the case, then the only solution is to replace door hinges.

Sharp ar5316 blank pages printed and copied.


while standing in front of the copier open the Right door and then then flip down the Front door. Are the levers in place ? usually the front door will not close properly if not.

Second take out the toner and look for a loosely hanging piece of plastic on it, give it a tug, does it seem to be a long peice of clear plastic? if yes yank it all the way out. It is a protective piece sent for shipping. It will be on ALL the toners you get.

 

If not look at the right side door there is a back assembly there with either a black cylinder type roller or some strings.

Are the strings broken , is the roller in place?
