Probably a broken torsion spring, if you help lift the door as it is opening, it may open all the way. With the door down and you inside, look at the torsion spring above the door opening on the long rod to left or right of centre. One on each side of centre with a double garage door. If either spring is in two pieces, then you will need to get them replaced or replace them your self.

Why do no panel lights turn on when my Kenmore Model 587.1625 is latched and ready


The door latch in Kenmore and Kitchenaid isn't of the best design.The spring steel latching tab is needs to push down the black plastic slide mechanism when the door in closed. That slide pushes down on a micro switch which interrupts the cycle when you open the door when the dish washer is running. Take the latch assembly back out. You can insert two compression springs inside the slide on each side of the latch. They are approx 3/16 Dia x 3/4 to 1 inch long. In the hardware dept at Home Depot or Lowe's..The springs will push the slide down hard enough to activate the switch. Right now your dish washer thinks the door is open.

There are door switches and one of them is evidently out of adjustment or the little actuator arm on it is.

How do you remove the oven door from a Maytag MGR 5780 range. I cannot see any latches on the hinges


There aren't any latches on the Maytag MGR5780 oven door hinges. You should be able to open the door to the first stop (about 4" from the closed position). Then grab the sides of the door and lift the door up at that same angle until the door clears both hinge arms. Manage My Life has the manual for the MGR5780 here: http://www.managemylife.com/mmh/owner_manuals/25316/MAYTAG-Free-Standing,-Gas-L0303326 . See page 15 (16 of the PDF) for a picture of the door open to the first stop position. You will need Adobe Reader or a similar program to read the manual.

I hope this helps.

Lift master garage door opener. Motor makes noise when switch is hit likes its running but chain/sprocket doesn't move and the door is stuck open. Chain is on sprocket. Not sure if the motor is frozen? ...


I had the same problem. Took the cover off of the opener and found that the gears were stripped on the unit. Motor was fine. You can order gear replacement kit for the unit. They are a plastic type sprocket and worm gears. The kit comes with spindles and all necessary clips. You have to take the unit off the ceiling to replace the gears, but the process if very easy to do. Parts kit about $40 on line, much cheaper than a new door opener. Total process took less than 2 hours, including getting the unit down and back up again.

Disc Tray will not open


DVD door is opened by a small pulley-belt system. Disconnect the power cord and remove cover on R6740 (one screw on each side and 3 in back). Remove top cover on DVD drive (4 screws on top). Manually open door; you will see a small "O" ring sized rubber belt (they stretch and lose flexibility with time, which is why the door stops working). Remove and replace belt. I found a 11/16" X 1/16 belt at Lowe's in the plumbing dept @ 2 for $.59. Its not a perfect fit, but the door works now!
