Can't get the cover off on bottom to clean coils

I can't get the plastic cover on the bottom front to release so that I can remove it and clean underneath the fridge. The center comes loose but the sides don't budge. Am I missing something?

I found an on-line user manual at the GE website. There were two little screws near the outer edges that I couldn't see until I laid down in the floor and opened the refrigerator doors. Once those were out the bottom grill came off easily.

How do you remove the clear plastic cover on the crisper drawer of a Samsung Refrigerator Model RF4287HARS

Yes, the clear plastic front of the crisper drawer can be removed for cleaning. Using a thin-bladed, flat-head screwdriver, pry out at the clear plastic slot at the top outside of the drawer, where the clear front piece meets the tab of the white handle piece. Pry out just enough to get the blade under the slot, and then pry inward at the white tab to release the clear front piece at the top of the drawer. Repeat this procedure on the opposite side, so that the plastic front piece is free at the top of the drawer. Next, turn the drawer over on a counter and work the blade of th screwdriver under the tabs at the bottom of the front plastic piece. These should release easily. Notice the bottom edge has three slots and two sections that are interleaved with the bottom of the drawer. Once you have all three pieces separated, the while u-shaped handle piece, the plastic front panel, and the drawer itself, you can clean and dry them easily. To reassemble, first snap the while handle into place on the drawer, by lining up the top of the drawer to the while handle part first. The top of the handle fits over two plastic extensions on th top of the drawer, then swings down to cover the front sides of the drawer. Then reattach the bottom of the front plastic panel to the bottom of the drawer, interleaving the overlapping parts and snapping the tabs in place. Then snap the top of the front panel over the white handle at the top of the drawer, and you are done!

Fan is working, but not cooling. Can't get the front cover off. It sticks at the top

First, to remove the front cover, the assembly has two or three plastic tabs that fit into the same amounts of slots in the metal casing, release grill assembly from the bottom and lift it a little to release the tabs.
Second, On the non cooling issue, check the evaporator coils when you first start unit, does the compressor starts at all, starts and quits after short periods???
Keep me posted!!

How do I remove the front panel to clean the coils in the front? I have the panel free at the top, bottom and sides but seems to be hanging up/caught in the middle, between and below the vents? Fedder...

front panel has one phillips screw in it. remove the air filter and you will see it. Once you remove the screw, grasp the lower front sides of the cover, where the plastic meets the metal, and gently pry it outwards and towards you. there are plastic clips that hold the cover in place. One on each lower side and three on top.

Pull the plastic cover off of the front unit at the very bottom. This is referred to by some as the "kick plate". Upon removing the kick plate, you should see the coils (may need flashlight) and then simply using your crevice tool on your vacuum, clean them off.

I have an old 35 mm Canon A1. I can't get it to click a photo or advance. It has a new battery. This happened to it once before and it turned out something had accidentally been switched on that froze...

Once the film has been advanced, it can't be advanced again until you take a picture. There's a dial ring under the shutter release that locks out shutter release. Turn the dial to unlock the shutter.

Can't pull off the plastic "grille" to clean the filter.

I usually clean condenser coils from the back by removing the lower back panel. The cover below the door is attached by clips on each end. Usually rocking the panel up and down while pulling out at the top then bottom will loosen those clips and allow for removal.

Want to remove cover of Krups Espressario XP7240

Yes it is tricky but easy once you know it. remove the bean container by pulling off the grind selector knob and removing the only screw.
Then remove the scute for the cleaning tablets. Then remove the two screws that were covered by the scute lid. Remove the water tank. Under the tank remove the two screws.
Then the trick where everyone seems to look for: The facade of aluminum can be moved off. Set the machine on the floor and pull hard upwards at the facade. This comes off (pull hard!) and four screw are uncovered. Remove them and pull then back housing of the machine (remove first the containers/drawers). Now the inner parts are freely accessible. You filter is the white valve connected to the three way valve (white plastic). You remove it by twisting it 15 degrees. Clean the inner parts (valve and spring) from coffee debris.

How do I remove the grate on the bottom to clean the coils

They are usually held in with clips that snap in and out. This is especially true if you don't see any visible screws. Give it a good tug on one side and see if it pops out.
