Having problems with the 3-speed pull string it doesn't seem to work after installation?

Remove the recoil pull starter rope surrounded by 3 or 4 hold down screws depending on your make then you wind up the coil starter pulley about 5 turns counter clockwise hold it there you feel a tension as you go abouts turning. Which is what you want to do. Once you reach 5 turns hold it do not let go,with one hand and with the other hand take a vise grips and clamp down the rope so that you don't lose your tension install your pull cord handle,take out the vise grips , then you release your cord pull starter rope..

The door on my Hotpoint Washing Machine WT741 won't open even though the programme has ended. We've tried running the programme again and pumping out but still the door won't open.

The door latch may have broken. You can sometimes open the door from the inside. You will know the door latch is broken if the door handle is floppy. If the door handle is not floppy - then the issue is probably with the door interlock. This is the electronic part that prevents the door from being opened during and after the wash has finished.
Either way - you'll need to get the door open.
To do this, unplug the washing machine from the mains and then move it out from where it is. Tip the washing machine to a 45 degree angle. Don't tip it over 45 degrees as you may break internal parts.
You need two people to do this - one person hold the machine at 45 degrees angle, whilst the other person puts their hand up into the machine - you should be able to feel the door catch mechanism and depending on the model, open the door that way. Sometimes the manufacturer has helpfully put a manual release inside - and sometimes they don't.
If you aren't able to open the door using that method. Get a length of strong string and poke the middle section of the string into the gap between the washer door and the machine body - to the right of the door handle. Use a flat headed screw drive to push the string into the gap, all the way around the door, so that you end up with the two ends of the string on the left hand side of the door. Now have someone put the ends of the string whilst the other person pulls the door handle. If the string is pushed in far enough it will release the door latch and the door will open. It takes a bit of persistence to get it right.
Once you have the door opened you can usually replace either the interlock mechanism or the door latch itself. Parts are easily available online from sites like espares and yourspares.

I bought a brand new Troy-bilt lawn mower model 336077 and tried to start it by pulling on the started string after filling gas and oil. But the cord is stuck and the mower does not start. WHat coul be the...

Are you holding the emergency stop lever? If you were operating the mower with your hands on the handle, there is a separate lever that you are expected to hold together with the main handle. You have to hold these two handles together to start and to operate the mower. Good luck.

I don't know how to take off the window handle to get the door panel off any know how would be nice!

What you will need to do is to pry the handle away from the door and that will reveal the C clip that actually holds the handle in place. While you have it in this position, take another common/slotted screwdriver and take the C clip off. When you are ready to reinstall the handle, simply snap the C clip in place on the handle and then just tap the handle back into place. If you use the palm of your hand you will lessen the risk of damaging/scaring the window handle. Hope this helps

I can't get the spool off of my echo srm 210 to replace the cutting line. There are no nuts or snaps that I can see. I know it should twist off, but I don't know how.

This is a link to full instructions, (page 27)

Hold body of string spool, turn smaller cap on end clockwise, as if you are tightening it, (left hand threads).

Driver's side interior door handle snapped off

there is plastic snaps that attatch the panel to the door all the way around the panel which you can buy a tool to remove the panel without breaking the snaps,the door handle may have a cable hooked to it that releases the latch and it might be stretched causing the handle to pull hard

Exterior rear door handle on Honda Accord 2001

To Remove Door Panel on 2001 Honda Accord:

A: To remove the plastic piece with the door lock button and door handle connected to it:

1- Remove the screw in the middle located behind a plastic cover button
2- Push (slide) the whole assembly Forward (toward front of car)
Besides the screw, it is held in place by 3 hooks on the backside that hook into holes in the metal door frame
3- Now unhook handle from small metal bar going through door by pushing (toward door) plastic clip (blue?) off of the bar, then the bar will come out of the clip hole, thus releasing the handle.
4- Depress little grey button /bar (purple painted on it)on elec. connector to seperate connector, thus releasing door lock switch

Now the whole assembly (metal handle, door lock switch, and plastic piece) will come off door panel

B: The door is held on by 2-screws, 7-plastic snaps/plugs, and 1-plastic plug.

The screws are located: bottom of hand hold and the other behind the handle, both covered by little covers that have to be pryed off to access the screws.(hint: the screw with the built in spacer goes behind the handle when you are trying to reinstall)
The 7-plastic snaps: 3 across bottom and 2 on each side. Not visible, they are mounted to the inside of the panel.
The 1-plastic plug is visible at the upper front of the panel and is the same color as the surrounding trim

C: Take off the big plastic triangle piece above the door panel and behind the mirror. Pull/pry off. It has 2 snaps holding it on. one near bottom and one near the front.

D: Light lens prys off from bottom. Unscrew (1/4 turn) the light assembly with bulb still intact from backside of panel

E: Remove the Hand-Hold/window switch assembly:
