I have a zdis15csse monogram ice machine. It produces ice fine, however the grid cutter will not heat up/ cut the sheet once its been produced. This is a brand new grid cuter, so i believe it isthe...

It is located right below the top cover. You will probably have to take the door off to remove all the screws that hold the top. The control board is located there and the problem is either the connections on the side of the grid cutter wires, the plug in near the cutter inside the bin area or the transformer on the control board. You can probably get a price for the control board if you take your model number and go to and find the control drawing and you should be able to order a new control board with a credit card and have it delivered to your home.
Hope this helps

Something is jammed in the cutters. How do I separate the cover ? I've removed the four screws but some snaps are holding it. What do I need to do?

With the bin removed, turn the shredder upside down to get access to the shreding mechanism. The "small button" is the interlock that confirms the bin is in place before shredding begins.

Paper has filled up the spaces between the gears in some spots so that even one sheet of paper does not shred - it just gets holes poked in it. I have tried the usual needle nose pliers to pick out t

I just had mine apart yesterday to clean the paper sensor and remove some paper that fed the wrong way. First unplug the unit. Tools needed Philips screw driver and needle nose. Remove the paper bin and put the shredder on its back then remove 4 screws that hold the base cabinet to the top.Once you have the top off put the top upside down on the floor / table. There are 6 screws that hold the top together. Be careful of the wires for the bin full and bin in place sensors that connect between the bottom and top half's. You can gently lift the bottom up and swing it away to access the cutters. From here you should be able to clean most of the paper. The cutter assembly isn't screwed in but has some wires that will have to be removed if you need to remove the cutter assembly. Also there is lots of grease on the cutter assembly so be careful of where you touch.

I have a Husqvarna Topaz 30 Sewing machine that the thread cutter will not retract

A work around would be to remove the thread cutter mechanism completely. You can manually cut the top thread when spool changes are reqiired and would only have to deal with the bobbin thread when the hoop is removed. Moreover, I suspect when the cutter mechanism is removed the source of the problem will reveal itself. Depends on how skilled you are whether you tackle this yourself or take it to a sewing machine repair person. I suggest the latter.

Can't find cutter. could it have fallen into machine. the clip that holds it is there. This happened after trying to clear a paper jam

Cutter unit having press & release system, by mistake its released, it might be fallen in paper bin.. You can see there is a cut at right side near blur lever,pull cutter bush up to there & load the cutter into cutter bush. Once hearing click sound manually confirm its fixed properly or not.. once its confirmed, push cutter in to park area, power on the printer..

Dyson canister won't fit snugly

Hi there,

I am sorry to hear your canister is not fitting properly. You may want to separate your cyclone assembly (the top purple portion of your canister) from the clear bin and reattach the components to ensure they are fitted together properly.

To do this, open the bottom of the clear bin, as if you were emptying it. Please be sure the bin is positioned over a trash receptacle in the event there is debris in the bin. Once the bottom of the bin is open please look at the back of your canister. Below the purple top of the canister and to the left of the debris inlet is a clear plastic loop that you can slip your index finger through. Just above this loop is a gray release catch . Using your thumb, press down on the gray release mechanism. At this point you should be able to gently pull the clear bin away from the cyclone assembly. After separating the pieces, briefly inspect them to confirm they are not damaged. If there is no obvious damage, close the base of the clear bin and place the bin on a hard flat surface. Next, carefully lower the cyclone assembly onto the clear bin. It may be helpful to use the red plastic piece on the back of your cyclone assembly and clear bin to line the pieces up correctly. You will hear a slight click once the pieces have been successfully reattached.

Please attempt to return the canister to the machine. If you are still not able to attach the canister successfully, please call us so we can provide further assistance. We can be reached at 1-866-693-9766 (US), 0800 298 0298 (UK), and 01-475-7109 (IE).

Best wishes,

The cutting mechanism is failing. Result-parallel perferations

This happened to mine after attempting to shred checkbooks. The checkbook spine warped the cutter shaft far enough to allow the cutters to jump over to the opposite position. (Imagine scissors wit the blades back-to-back.)

I fixed mine. All I did was disassemble it and reassemble it. But be forewarned. I consider this an advanced level assembly. Many of the parts are small. Everything takes 3 hands. And the cutter shafts were difficult to get to go into the correct orientation (probably because of burrs on the serrated cutting edges).

Lay everything out on a large enough workbench. Keep track of which pieces go where. And be careful. Good luck!

How to take apart

I hate to admit my wife was right:  "Don't get it.  It's too cheap.  You get what you pay for!"  Gaads, I hate to admit this THIS time, she might have been right!  I am going back to play with it to see if I can figure it out!  There's gotta be a way to clean it!  Otherwise, it is just a salmonella breeding laboratory!  
Oh-oh!  I just found it - (after I cut one of my fingers on the cutters looking for access!)  Here is the answer:

1.  Do NOT turn the basket/cutter part.  
Just because there is a knurl on the cutter basket doesn't mean we put our hands on it -- yet!
2.  Turn the entire TOP in which the cutters nest approximately 60-90 degrees CLOCKWISE.
3.  Lift the entire plastic assembly straight up.
4.  The cutter basket will now separate from the plastic top.

Good luck -- and don't cut yourself, unless the taste of your own blood excites you!

Loose Cutter Block

when you remove the cutter block is there a white nylon fixture atop the vibrating mechanism? this nylon piece snaps on the vibrating rod and the cutter snaps into the nylon fixture.
