    Thanks so much. I was just into Lowes and I found the screwdriver head and of course it was only available in a kit with everything else that i do not need.

Where is the defrost timer on a mabe fridge

Hello Kristine:

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service refrigeration technician.
Good for you. The probability that you have a faulty defrost timer is extremely high.
A defrost timer will cycle every 8-10 hours for about 20 minutes.
It will shut everything down except for the refrigerator light.
Your defrost timer is white in color. In side it is about 2" X 3".
It is mounted on the backside of a sheet metal bracket. The are 3 screws holding it to the metal bracket. In the center of the metal bracket is a small hole slightly larger than 1/4". Protruding through this hole is a small shaft with a slot for a flat head screw driver.
I have never worked on your particular unit, however, the external mounting is generally the same. The defrost timer is either located behind the refrigerator, at the bottom, on the left hand side when you face the back. You may have to remove the lower bottom cover to expose it. The other location is in the front on the right hand side. You will have to remove the bottom grill (Toe plate) to expose it.
Now, having located the defrost timer and with a flat head screw driver, and with the refrigerator plugged in; slowly turn the shaft clockwise. You will hear a click. Turn the defrost timer slowly one click at a time until the refrigerator starts to run.
If this is the case then you know you have a bad defrost timer.
So, you must manually defrost you freezer. Say, every 9 hours, with your flat heat screw driver, turn the shaft on the defrost timer clockwise, one click at a time until the unit turns off. Time it for 20 minutes, then turn one click at a time to turn it on. A great job for a teenager. It would be fun.

I can not open my "key fob" to replace the battery, does anyone know how to open it?

hey,, There are hidden clips inside you just need to pry it apart... some of them the back cover slides off, but most just pry apart. Look at the back and make sure there are no screws and no hidden screws (like those under rubber stoppers, the stoppers must be removed to expose them).. any way once thats verified, simply insert a flat head (blade) screw driver in between the seems and pry it apart.

Dryer will not turn off after cycle is complete

You Have a Broken Timer... There are metal points inside the Timer and can melt together so when the dryer reachs its end cycle they should come apart to leave the circuit open but wont since they melted together and continues to run. Also if the dryer has a computer board controling everything that would have to be replaced if it dosnt have a timer.

1. You will have to replace the timer if your going to accomplish this on your own you will need the model number which is located on the inside of the door opening will say mod or model.

2. You will need to find a appliance parts house in your area and call them to find out how much the new timer will cost plus to make sure they still make them and if on there shelf.

3. Once you have the new timer you will need a small flat head screw driver, 1/4" - 5/16" socket and a Phillips head screw driver to remove back panel bolts.

4. (WARNING) Unplug the dryer always make sure its unplugged or you risk being severly injurded or possible death the dryer has 220 volts running thru it!

5. Remove the back panel on the dryer where the dash is once removed you will see all the wires connecting to the timer. This is where the 1/4" or 5/16 socket comes in unless its a phillips head screw driver should be 1/4" some models will require a specail star bit normally on GE Dryers

6. Remove the timer knob should slide right off then remove the 2 1/4" screws holding the timer to the dash.

7. With new timer in hand make sure it lines up with the old one so you can put the wires back where they go (IMPORTANT THERE WILL BE 2 BLACK OR BROWN WIRES GOING TO A METAL LOOKING ROUND THING THATS THE CLOCK IT DRIVES THE TIMER LEAVE THEM WIRES WHERE THERE AT) now slowly remove 1 WIRE AT A TIME off old timer and connect to new timer where they go so you dont get wires hooked up to wrong post and fry the new timer if wires wont pop off yous your flat head screw driver to gently pry the wires off the post.

8. Place timer back where it goes there are aligment holes to help and replace the 2 screws you took out earlier from the timer.

9. Replace the back panel to the dash once completed plug in your dryer and replace the timer knob and set it to 5 mins let the dryer run till it shuts off to make sure its working properly.

If your dryer has a Computer Board the new board you order will have instructions for installing it alor the them are different on how the go in.

If unsure or dont want to fool with it call a qualified techinician to service your dryer for you but hopfully this will get you back going again have a good day.

Tripod head

If the head is loose on the tripod follow these instructions:
There are three small set screw (grub screws) that are under the head, net to the center column. You will have to raise the center column and look under the head. These are slotted screw heads and a small to medium screwdriver should work. You don ot have to remove the grub screws completely, but you should back them out at least half way. The head will unscrew off the center column. The gray part below the head is half the head attachment and half the center column end plate so it should separate in the middle line between the two.

If screws came out elsewhere, we will need to know the model number of the head that came apart.

Gilmour 9400 water timer won't turn on

Well, I have the same problem. In fact, I just took mine apart (look for 4 screws on the back gray plastic) and found that the gears are stripped. About 3 of the teeth are broke off. I've been looking for parts on the Internet, but no luck yet. I'm afraid the only solution is to purchase a new timer.
