SOURCE: weight watcher scale not calibrating weight correctly

Press the scale once with your foot. All screen options should display to initialize and then go to 0.0. Now step on the scale. It should read out your correct weight. If not, first remove and replace the battery for reset. If still not, replace the battery. If still not it's ready for return or replacement. Hope it works! Dave - CA

SOURCE: Whirlpool Duet GHW9400PWO: Replacement of the rear counter weight

This is a simple repair. All that should be required is to remove the back panel to access the counterweight. I've performed this repair on several occasions. Loosen the bolts that sandwich the weight between the mounting plates and the whole weight should slide out of its mounted position on the back of the tub. Insert the new weight by sliding it in place and then re-installing the mounting plates and bolts. Tighten until snug. Do NOT overtighten as you may crack the weight. I hope this helps you.

SOURCE: 2001 dodge caravan sport 3.3 need to know what weight oil it take

The correct oil weight is 5W20, but 5W30 can be used also. Be consistant when using oil, try to use the same brand and always use the same viscosity. This vehicle requires 4.5 liters of engine oil.

I have a Dakota Daniels grandfather clock. The chimes work, the pendulum works, but the clock hands don't move.

Change the batteries. The weight makes the pendulum and chimes work, but the clock in this thing is battery operated :>)

    My clock will only run with added weight on the clock chain. I added the cuckoo bird weight to the clock weight chain and it keeps good time. If I remove the added weight it will stop.

    I think your clock needs to be lubricated. A special light weight oil in a syringe will do the job. Just a little bit will Do.

    Chain is off On New England grandfather clock, how do I get it back on ?

    I've had this same problem with a 30 year old koo koo clock. I'm sure the parts in your grandfather clock are much larger, but the basic design should be the same.

    What I had to do was first remove the weight and whatever hook is attached directly to the chain. Then remove any loop or hardware on the opposite end of the same chain. Now, spread open the last link so you can attach it to the first link in the chain. This will make a continuous loop. You'll see why in a bit.

    Now comes the tedious part. You'll have to reach inside the clock from the back side with a long piece of stiff wire. Small enough to get underneath the part of the chain that has slipped it's gear. Chances are this chain is wedged between two gears. You may need to bend a small hook at the end of the wire to help dislodge the chain. When the chain is free you can realign it on the appropriate gear. Now that the chain is in the right place, you can advance the chain in the proper direction to get it seated correctly. This is where the loop comes into play. Since the weight was wedged up at the top, you wouldn't be able to advance the chain. Since it's a loop, now you can. Keep pulling the chain in the right direction until you know it's spinning freely. Then you can unloop the chain, reattach the hooks and the weight and test it out.

    Hope this helps.

    How to fix a German Regula cuckoo clock?

    As Larry said, you can pull the chain to spin the wheel in both directions. If you are having trouble with one chain being longer, you can even them out this way. I wouldn't suggest removing the weights.

    I have a daniel dakota grandfather clock and there is a wire that is not connected to anything,

    An electrical wire? Does everything work that you expect to work? If so, wrap that wire with electrical tape so it can't contact anything... and forget that it's in there.

    Firstly do you know what each of the weights are for?
    1. The heaviest weight will chime the melody.
    2. The middle weight will keep the clock ticking.
    3. The 3rd weight will strike the hours.
    The chains run on sprockets and these sprockets move one way only. If you pull the chain the side that winds up will be the side where the weight will hang. If you need more information you are welcome to email me at I do fix these clocks for a living.

    My grand fathers clock keeps time but will not chime ?

    Have you checked the travel path of the other two chains ? If not, be sure that they aren't hung up on something inside the clock. Also, do you have a switch that allows you to turn the chimes on/off? Lastly: are the three weights each on their proper chain? They each have different weights and are sometimes numbered on the bottoms. 12_10_2013_7_43_52_am.png

    Purchased a grandfather clock at a flea market and need to know how to wind it. Has chains not a key.

    Pull the chains ... there is a weight on one end and the other end is free. Pull the free end down which will pull the weight up. It is the falling weight that operates the clock. There are probably several weights, each weight has a different purpose. The falling weight actually operates the pendulum. You will probably have to wind the clock (pull the chain) on a daily or weekly basis depending on the movement of the clock (i.e. 1 day clock or a 8 day clock) If the weights are missing, you will have to replace them. Contact a clock repair shop in your area.

    If you had a Coo Koo clock, one weight would run the clock and a second weight would run the bird. A third weight would run a music box or other clock feature.

    I hope this answers your question. Congratulations on your purchase.

    Thanks for visiting today.
