Question about Carrier LCA061P Air Conditioner
The plastic control knob for the fan speed and the on/off control knob are broken. The plastic split and the knobs no longer work. I need replacement knobs. Where can I find them.
Model LCA061P Window A/C unit.
This is for any pin that is in the shape of a half moon (if you remove the broken knob and are looking at it from the top view, it looks like a half moon).
Get a piece of wood. (I made mine 1" x1"x1". Some craft supply stores sell wooden balls/beads of various sizes that will work ).
Drill a hole in the center of the wood the same diameter as the existing pin that is remaining on the fan or a/c. (Place the drill bit next to the pin to measure and find the closest diameter).
Cut a wooden dowel of the same diameter as the drill bit, to a length a little longer than the cube of wood or wood piece you are using.
Split this dowel in half. (I used a single edged razor blade and hammer. Mine did not split perfectly, so I sanded it in half).
Place this half dowel into the hole you just drilled into the piece of wood.
Test drive it by placing it over the existing pin. (Re-drill the hole and replace the dowel if needed)
Turn it on and off a few times.
Make any adjustments to fit.
Glue the dowel in place. (Put something into the half moon hole to get it tight while the glue dries, like toothpicks or an awl)
Cut off any extra length of the dowel.
Paint the cube of wood to match the item if desired.
I did not glue my new knob to the pin because it was very snug and I can always replace it again if this gets loose or breaks in the future.
