SOURCE: Phil and Teds Sport. Front wheel either moves

First of all, I cannot tell you how frustrating the Phil & Teds instruction manual is. Our's had one half inch square pictures that were supposed to be adequate to learn how to use this. As a general suggest there are fantastic videos posted by a third part (not Phil & Teds) that are worth watching.

After several frustrating hours I can tell you exactly how to fix this:

1. Put on the rear brake
2. Sit on the ground in front of the stroller but sit slightly on one side or the other
3. Lift up the stroller so that you can see the pin that you pull to release the front wheel
4. Pull the pin slowly out about a quarter of an inch
5. You should see that there are actually two metal pins (one large, one tiny)
6. Twist the knob you pulled so that the tiny pin does not line up with the tiny circle on the inside of the knob
7. Let go of the knob

If you did this correctly, you should be able to have the front wheel locked in the swivel position even if you tillt the stroller upwards.

I hope this helps. I also hope that at some point Phil & Teds hires someone to help them with their instruction manuals. They have several clever and humorous language in them, but when the document does not serve its actual purpose the humor just becomes frustrating. For the cost of the stroller, the company should be embarrassed that its users are resorting to these online forums to help each other, although I am happy to do it.

Enjoy!

SOURCE: baby swing......graco doesn't swing

We`ve recently bought a 6 speed swing second hand and had exactly the same problem ie it only worked when the swing was empty. We found that if you give the swing a nudge before switching on the motor this sometimes works as the motor only has to keep the swing moving.

If this doesn`t work, strip the motor down and check the contacts. A poor contact will mean that you get less power from the motor. Be careful not to break the connectors on the motor as you take it off as they are fragile. If any contacts appear weak, then they should be carefully soldered to make a strong contact.

Then carefully reassemble the motor on the swing and give it a push to get it going before switching on the motor.

Hope this helps someone reading this.

Ian and Ellie.

SOURCE: when turning the key in

I would lean more towards your ignition switch being bad. Although you could be right I have not seen that problem very often. More often than not its the ignition switch. Good luck.

How to change battery in fisher price my little lamb bassinet


Sometimes your little one likes being held over your shoulder. Sometimes on your knee. Other times, she wants to be cradled in your arms as you rock her side-to-side or back-and-forth. But for the times you need to put baby down, here's a swing that cradles and swings, soothes and entertains her just the way she likes it! It surrounds her in plush, cozy fabrics and a canopy that cocoons her. The soothing continues with eight tunes and a side-to-side cradle motion, a lot like the way you rock her in your arms. When your little lamb is ready for play, the swinging changes to a back-and-forth motion (because babies love variety) and she's engaged with nature sound tracks and a mobile featuring a mirror, floating clouds and little lambs to entertain her. Includes six soothing swing speeds, little plush friend tethered right to the removable tray, and bead bar. Sturdy steel frame has legs that fold in for storage and portability. Requires 4 D batteries. Weight Limit: 25 lbs. (11.3 kg) Developmental Guidelines: Use cradle swing from birth until a child becomes active and can climb out of the seat. Better for Baby... Soothes Soothing music and alternate swinging motions help calm baby and promotes a sense of security. Plush fabrics enhance baby's sense of security by providing comfort. Seeing baby's own image in the mirror encourages self-recognition, enhancing emotional development. Engages Seeing baby's own reflection and other objects in mirrored globe stimulates baby's visual sense. Rich fabrics and textures stimulate baby's tactile sense. Watching and anticipating motion of lambs and clouds fosters visual tracking skills. Listening to nature sounds as well as musical selections strengthens auditory skills. Better for Mom... Choice of three positions in one swing-variety for baby and convenience when you want baby facing you! Easy to convert from one position to another. Folds for storage and portability.

I can't figure out how to switch from position 1 to position 2.


U have to grab the bar and like pull out and move it back and forth between positions. If your sitting in front of the swing(chid facing you) grab bar and pull away from you and move seat. Might have to hold the little side thing that says one and two to keep it still.

Make sure the legs are pulled out all of the way by pulling the legs outward. Make sure the buttons snap into the notches in the motorized frame. Also check to be sure the legs are locked into position by pushing the legs inward. The legs should not move. Also if you can adjust the swing from side to side make sure it is locked in place. That should fix it.

Have a DC25, I can not return the handle to the upright position. Nothing appears to be broken


Occasionally, customers have problems locking their Dyson vacuum in the upright position. This is a minor problem common with the Dyson DC07 and DC14 series and can easily be fixed by the customer. This page will show how to fix this problem. Although we show a Dyson DC14 Animal on this page, these instructions will work on any Dyson vacuum in the DC07 and DC14 series.

During shipping, moving parts on a Dyson vacuum can shift in position. One of these parts is a swinging arm in the base of the unit. This arm holds a removable elbow pipe in the vacuum's air passage. This arm can move out of the way so that you can clear out a blockage in the air passage. When this arm is out of position, the vacuum will not lock in the upright position. Fig. 1 Shows the base of a Dyson DC14 Animal locked upright. The red arrow points to the swinging arm. Fig. 2 shows the vacuum with the swing arm out of position. Since the swing arm is lower than it should be, it doesn't line up with the tab on the main body indicated by the red arrow.

Lean the handle of your Dyson all the way back and locate the black button on the right side of the vacuum indicated by the red arrow in Fig. 3.. Press the button down and hold it to unlock the swing arm.

While holding down the black button, pull the swinging arm (Shaded red in Fig. 4) all the way up. Fig. 5 shows the swinging arm in the correct position. Release the black button to lock the swing arm back in place.

The vacuum can now lock in the upright position as shown in Fig. 6. Note how the tab on the swinging arm overlaps the tab on the main body..

My bugaboo keeps pulling to one side? What's wrong with it?


First check that the handle extension locks hold properly and the handle is not slipping on on side. A handle lock problem (the part that allows the handle to swing from back to front) should be obvious but check both are locking and have the same amount of play. Finally check all four wheels spin freely and the smaller front set can both rotate freely. Your Bugaboo maintenance kit came with a small can of silicon spray. Use it regularly (once every month or two) to lubricate the handle lock, brake lever and wheels. If you find a specific problem let me know and I'll try to help.

The wipers on my daughter's car just stopped moving. The motor is working and I can look in the cowling and see a part of the linkage turning but the wipers wont move. They move freely when move them by...


It sounds like both wipers have let go at the outer connection of the arm. It just needs to be retightened there after you pick up the swinging cover. The metal is very soft here and is design to let go if they ice up so as not to break. You will have to position the wipers coorectly.

The swing barely moves even on highest setting


If you have a bigger baby, the weight can affect how much the swing can move.

Baby swing......graco doesn't swing


I had the exact same problem the motor worked fine but when we took it apart the gear inside was stripped. i hate saying it but best thing you can do is buy a new swing. i personally recommend http://www.toysrus.com/product/index.jsp?productId=3420749&camp=PPC%3A204318389. its a little bit high but so worth the money. my 8mo old baby girl loves it. it also has a AC adapter so no more batteries and an ipod hook up as well so you can pick what music you want your baby to listen to. best of luck.

PRINTER JAM ERROR


Paper sensors are pretty simple, in that they are used to sense if the paper has reached, or passed a specific position in the paper path. The sensors are typically small swinging arm like devices which when lifted, switch either on or off. Just check that the sensor arms are swinging freely, and not stuck in a open or closed position, which is what I suspect. If the paper pick-up does not even start to pick up the paper, then likely a paper sensor is stuck, or broken.
