Kitchen drawer, particle board repair.

My bff stuffed a kitchen drawer much too full resulting in broken particle board on handle plate. I don't want to cut a new piece. In the past I solved this problem with Wood Cement and C-Clamps. It was functional but the drawer dried at an angle and was a bit unsightly. Would I be better off using a different epoxy?

It is far better to replace the drawer front altogether. Glues and adhesives actually make particle board swell and cause it to disintegrate so if it is splitting there is no sound way to glue it back together and retain any structural integrity. I suggest taking the drawer to a local cabinet maker and have them repair it by duplicating and replacing damaged pieces.

The oven is not heating up

Hello Dana;

My name is peter. I am a retired field service appliance technician.

There are several reasons that your oven is not heating:

1.) Broken heating element.
2.) Bad thermostat.
3.) Bad oven board.

Please send your oven model number. It is located on a metal plate after you open the bottom pan drawer.

DD603 was showing F1 error and motor was whirring away, put off an electrical burning smell then popped circuit breaker for kitchen. Now when turned on bottom drawer lights up, no life from top drawer then...

Hi mate - usually F1 codes on the dish drawers are leak related - its possible you had a leak and some components burnt as a result..

Control boards are located inside the door panels, the rotor in the mid of the washer are removed from the inside, I forgotten how to remove the cabinet drawer, only ever done 1 some 10yrs back - under the drawers are your heater elements and the motor stator (windings).

Its possible the motor have piked due to leaks - really have to dismantle it first before you can decide which way to go.

Sorry cannot offer more for now, copyright laws prevent me from showing you a cross section of the unit.

I will keep an eye on your progress...

Oven control valve wont shut off gas completely

This could be due to a build up of grease or tiny food particles behind the control tap handle;
1/ Gently prise off the handle ( it comes towards you )
2/ Wash handle in warm soapy/detergent water, till clean, then dry.
3/ Use a lint-free cloth or a sponge with warm soapy water to soak the tap control spindle and a plastic knife to clean off any stubborn bits.
4/ Wipe clean , replace handle part, try turning off.

Misaligned lever on Kohler kitchen faucet

There are two possible things to look at.

Because you say "misaligned" and "frozen" it could be the handle is not set to the correct position.

There is a set screw holding the handle in place. It is a hex key I believe on that tap. Loosen the set screw and lift the handle off. move to the correct neutral position and set the screw.

If this does not do it and you are getting nothing but hot. The ceramic ball and washers could be stuck or broken. While the handle is off remove and inspect them. They should move freely in the socket. Replace or repair if necessary. Just take them to a plumbing store they are common parts.

Hope this helps. Please rate the answer if it helped you.

A portion of the the heating element broke off

This does happen from time to time when the element goes bad. I've witnessed many of them blow open in this manner. This can also occur if something spills over in your oven and leaks directly on to the element. You will require a replacement heating element to restore your oven feature. The following link explains the steps required to replace an electric oven heating element:

This is a very simple repair that usually isn't that expensive if you wish to repair yourself. You can order a replacement on line from any of the following web sites:

All these sites offer great service with competitive pricing, so shop all of them for the best deal. You will need to use a more complete model number (usually located on a nameplate around the oven door opening, lower drawer opening, or back of the operator console) to get better results for your parts search. The model number you provided only returns partial results.

If you have questions, or require additional assistance, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

NOTE: In some circumstances, the element failure can cause the Electronic Oven Control (EOC) board to fail. This is the control board on the operator console that controls all the oven features.
