I bought a TP 4000 chair at Staples today and when you sit in it you immediately sink like the hydraulic cylinder that allows you to adjust hieght is bad. Any ideas??


It could be faulty, but there is a arm under the seat that should allow you to adjust it, exercise that lever, perhaps the valve is stuck.

What can be doene with our executive office chair as it will not remain in the raised position. After raising it, then sitting, the chair slowly sinks down? What is the problem or what can be done.


The hydraulic gas lift is broken. If you want to fix it, you will need to find/buy a replacement. This is a common problem that happens with most all chairs, even if they are rated for heavier weight/long term use, they still do not seem to last more than 1-2 years of use at the most.

Ordered Fuego Multi-Function Task office chair via Office Max online on 6/14/2011. Received UPS delivery of chair on 6/15/2011. However, there are no assembly instructions included. How can I put it...


step 1: press the 5 casters into the holes on the star base (it's a firm press until they snap into place) turn it over so the wheels are on the ground and push the gas cylinder into center hole. place black sleeves over it. set it aside.
step 2: attach armrests to seat base using bolts (I) and washers (K) (the longer and thinner bolts and smaller washers) using the allen wrench supplied.
step 3: attach the seat plate (the thing with the 3 handles) onto the bottom of the seat cushion using bolts (J) and washers (L) ( the fatter and shorter bolts and larger washers) usint the same allen wrench.
step 4: place the set onto the base into the big hole that acceps it. then sit on it to ensure it stays, otherwise when you pick up the chair it will come off the base.
step 5: slide the seat back bar into the groove where the know shows at the back of the seat. you may have to loosen that knob first. when it is in, press the little black plastic button (M) into the hole at the bottom of that seat bar to keep it from sliding out when you pull it up to adjust.
step 6: play with the levers to learn how to do different adjustments.
step 7: congratulate yourself and be proud that you did it!
Oh, make sure all the bolts are tight before putting into use.

We bought a Franke top mount sink and go system from Lowes. It is being installed in a standard formica countertop. The clips that came with the unit will not stay on for anything when you attempt to...


Is the Foot print of the replacement maybe sink smaller than the foot print of the orginal sink that was replaced? It sounds like it is. Make the hole smaller by cutting a plywood strip to be placed on two sides of the sink hole. Long side at back of sink and short side. (plywood needs to be marine type because of the high mosture of the sink area and painted)
I went to their web site; they have posted a buyer beware notice of bad contractors. They may be able to help.

Here is an interesting problem. We have a Badger 5 1/2 Hp Garbage disposal hooked up on left side of double sink. The Disposer runs, spins, but will NOT drain.. at all. Left sink with the insinkerator will...


If this connects into a tee between the sinks, usually if the tee is in the middle of sinks, then often there is a divider in the tee to keep water from backing up the other drain. Remove the tee and inspect to be sure it isn't cloggged. Also put a bucket under the outlet. Try running it this way, if you get good flow you know the disposal is working
