SOURCE: Main door doesn't close easily

You may well need to purchase those bottom end parts to correct your problem. But first.....

Spray the door gasket on the hinge side with a food compatible
silicon spray. (makes it slippery).

Remove the heavy items from the door, and loosen the screws on the top hinge and try to adjust the door for a better fit.

I have a 1999 Dodge Ram and I have a deceleration jump/vibration at around 50-40 mph. When the brake is lightly applied it happens, when heavy brake applied it stops. I'm thinking front whell bearings


The front rotors are warped, the reason you feel it when lightly braking is because the pads are just brushing the high spots as they come by. Heaving braking will lock them in tighter and you will not notice it. They have to take the rotors off to turn them so they can check the wheel bearings at the same time and replace or pack them. Just have the rotors turned if they are not worn under the federal limits. If they are worn too bad you will have to replace them.

Hygena Select 620 Diplomat oven


The last person who used the oven door as a shelf to rest a heavy roast has bent the bracket the hinges go in to.
A piece of dowel (broomstick) cut to the width of the oven and placed as a fulcrum in the hinges, gentle pressure when almost closed can bend it back into position, but that wont last.
>> Replace front frame or retention brackets

My dishwasher door wont shut


see this causes, and use the common sense. God bless you
When your dishwasher door has a problem, check these: Latch Springs Hinges Door seal Latch The latch on many dishwashers is adjustable. If your door is easy to close but difficult to latch, adjust the latch to let the door close more easily. If you can't see any way to adjust the latch, yours may be fixed in a certain position. Check for other reasons for the latching problem. If the latch has worn out in a way that makes it impossible for you to close the door properly, you probably need to replace the latch. Springs Your dishwasher has two springs that counterbalance the weight of the door. If either or both of these are broken, the door feels quite heavy and you need to replace both springs. Hinges The hinges are important to the door closing properly. If they're bent or deformed, you probably need to replace them. Once bent, only rarely can they be straightened well enough. Door seal If your dishwasher is new--or if you have just replaced a door seal--the door may be difficult to latch for a week or two. If the tightness persists, though, try adjusting the latch, if it's adjustable. If it's not adjustable, there's probably nothing you can do immediately. But try running the dishwasher on the highest heat cycle to help the seal conform to the door. Otherwise, the seal should compress over time.

I have a 97 Sebring Convertible JX from Florida. I live in Canada. It is a great car. I do have water in the back, but have found the reason. It has approx. 115K miles on it. I hit an open sewer drain...


Knocking/ dragging feeling/worse when turning feeling it on driver side is most likely a bad cv joint/axle/wheel bearing on that side. Usually accompanied by a 'clicking' sound when turning wheel at low speed. This will produce a code 45 due to the drag on the transmission. Hope that helps.

2006 Saturn, dome light turns itself on when it's parked.


The car might be "thinking" that one of the doors is ajar,
Check the spring switches in all the door frames to make sure that they are hooked properly, and doing their job. One way to do it is ( if the dome happens to be off) to close and open each door several times, to see if the bad switch stays open and turns the light on, even with the door closed

Door won't close wont lock closed


Check the following if you have problem with your doors:

1)The latch on many dishwashers is adjustable. If your door is easy to close but difficult to latch, adjust the latch to let the door close more easily. If you can't see any way to adjust the latch, yours may be fixed in a certain position. Check for other reasons for the latching problem.
If the latch has worn out in a way that makes it impossible for you to close the door properly, you probably need to replace the latch.


2)Your dishwasher has two springs that counterbalance the weight of the door. If either or both of these are broken, the door feels quite heavy and you need to replace both springs.


3)The hinges are important to the door closing properly. If they're bent or deformed, you probably need to replace them. Once bent, only rarely can they be straightened well enough.


4)If your dishwasher is new or if you have just replaced a door seal the door may be difficult to latch for a week or two. If the tightness persists, though, try adjusting the latch, if it's adjustable. If it's not adjustable, there's probably nothing you can do immediately. But try running the dishwasher on the highest heat cycle to help the seal conform to the door. Otherwise, the seal should compress over time.
