Lid should be slightly loose and you should see a maximum mark on the side of the pan that you must not fill past. It should never leak out.

Should the lid be a tight fit or loose


Most crock pots are made of porous ceramic and is relatively brittle. It is glazed on all sides (except the bottom usually), to make it hold liquids without absorption. The lids, usually glass or thermoplastic, sit of top, but do not usually fit tightly as this could crack the crock. Also, it is not a pressure cooker, so you want excess steam to vent. The lid just keeps the heat inside and allows condensation to drip back into the crock, reducing the speed at which the fluids cook off, thus the term slow cooker.

Is there such a thing as steamers that go in the microwave?


Yes you can buy steamers that are specifically for microwaves. It's a tight fitting lid over a tray. You add liquid to the tray up to half way, add vegetables and set the microwave to the suggested time.

Our fisher and paykel dishdrawer won't wash. It comes up with F1 and flashing light on control panel.


the dynamo dishwashing stuff has caused foaming which reached the base of the dishdrawer unit causing the flood switch to trip. This gives F1 error.
Not sure how much foaming has occured.

Best to turn off power and take power cable out from socket. then empty the drawer using towels. pull out the bottom drawer and wait a day or so to let the foam disappear from the bottom of dishwasher (under the bottom drawer). Connect the power and see if F1 had gone. If not, you need more work. Post a comment based on the above suggestion and I will guide you further if required. Always use Finish dishwasher power only (recommended quantity) as the drawers are small and don't need much detergent.

Kitchenaid mixer leaking oil


Get a copy of the Repair Part List for your model at Kitchenaid.com
Grease inside the Planetary Assembly (the shaft is tight fit to the Planetary
plate at the factory and is not designed to be taken apart, so do not use
any hard object such as a screwdriver to separate them) over times can
turn to liquid and leak down the bowl. Removing the Planetary assembly
and adding Kitchenaid Food Grade Grease is not a task for a novice.
To properly remove the Planetary Assembly, you must work from inside
the Transmission Housing: Remove in this order: Retaining Clip(25), Bevel Gear(21),
Retaining Pin(18), Worm Follower Gear(19). Use a soft mallet to tap out the Shaft
of the Planetary Assembly(15). Re-assemble it in the reverse order.
Note: The Bevel Gear is extremely tightly fit on the shaft, and a pin punch
must be used to remove from the shaft.

The lables will not advance unless you hold down the lid tight, also we didn't use it for a while because of this problem and not when you hold the lid down no printing is on the lable.


there's a small optic sensor on the right edge that detects if the printhead mechanism (lid) is locked down. If the lid doesn't fit tight, then the printer thinks the lid is still open. By pushing on the lid, you block the sensor and labels print.

I have blocked that sensor by putting a small piece of label or masking tape over the sensor to block it. Now the printer will print even if the lid is not down tight.

More of a band-aid than a permanent solution to finding out why the lid won't lock down properly but it may help.

How can I minimise the smell of my macerator


Possible causes and solutions:
  1. Poor Ventilation, make sure macerator is properly vent. From top of lid there is a separate 1 1/2" ventilation pipe make sure it's installed and pipe/fittings are undamaged, fittings are all tight and secure. Vent is free of debris.
  2. Leaking Seals. Inspect lid Gasket for damage and deterioration, Replace with new gasket if damaged or deteriorated.
  3. Check all connection to ensure tightness, Lid tightly, Pan Gasket, hose/pipe fittings tight and secure.
I hope this helps in solving your problem, please rate the helpfulness of the answer. Good Luck and have a great week. Jeff

Water Filter Leaks


Since you weren't very specific where it leaks or when it started (like after a filter change) it could be tough to troubleshoot this leak.

If it is leaking at the faucet connection try tightening up where it screws onto the faucet. Depending on your strength (or lack of) you may need to use pliers to get a tight connection. Don't go crazy tight or it will crack the plastic fitting. If it still leaks remove the unit from the faucet and check the rubber washer inside where it screws onto the faucet. Make sure it's still there and is centered inside the cup and seated properly. Then reattach the unit to the faucet and tighten it well.

If it's leaking from the main body try removing the filter and reinstalling it making sure you have seated the filter properly and screwed on the cover correctly, and all the way. When it is tight the water outlet will be exactly at the bottom of the unit. Sometimes it's tricky getting it tight enough especially with wet hands.

Finally, if the leak is coming from the filter on/off selector this could be tough to fix. I would try firmly pushing and pulling the selector knob in and out several times while in both the on and off positions. This may re-seat the leaking seal. I wouldn't be too hopeful about this fix though. You may need to replace the unit if this part is leaking.
