The lead weight that goes inside my barracuda keeps falling out. I use slicone to keep it in place. Is there something stronger I could use?

SOURCE: barrcuda inground pool cleaner flips over

Often when you are having this problem with automatic pool cleaners, it has to do with the hose. Make sure that you have plenty of slack in the hose to cover the entire pool. Also, make sure that you do not have any obstructions in the hose and that it is not tangled.

You can check your water flow and make sure that it is not too high, but if your pool cleaners flipping over, there is probably a rather sever issue. Zodiac recommends that you contact your local warranty location if the cleaner is still under warranty.

I washed my car a grand marquis now my alarm keeps going off


Had that problem on a BMW 2002. It was the leads to one or more of the door switches. try using an absorbant cloth and drying around the door alarm switch if it is separate. Somes door alarm leads are tied into the door light switch. Older cars have very obvious push pin switches for lghts. If that solves it, a little slicone sealant around the edge of the switch plate will help. Also, could be a similar switch on the hood or trunck lid.

I have a 5650 lexmark printer and it keeps saying paper jams but there is not paper anywhere.. how can i find a solution... when you load paper it keepps getting stuck.. help


There could be something blocking the paper path. Try to shake the printer upside down. You'll be amazed of the things that falls off inside the printer. Also, make sure that there's no paper left inside the printer. Tiny pieces of paper will still lead to paper jams.

I just installed my G3. It pulsates fine and actually goes backwards instead of forward. Is this correct. Also, it seems to keep on the same path and cleaning only the path it has already cleaned going...


It depends on what you call backwards. These do move in the direction of the hose, not opposite the hose. Try adjusting the hose weights per the installation manual and it should work fine for you.

My bowflex dumbells are jammed and i cant remove them from the holder


Hi I called 1-800-628-8458 (the number in the manual) after trying several of the methods shown here. None worked. your dumbbell needs to be on a flat surface, no roll the dumbbell over to where the weight is facing the floor and the base is up in the air. With both hands lift the base and gently shake, the weight should fall out. Put the base back on the floor face up and inspect the grooves where the weight plates go for any debris. Clean this area if you find debris. Now you will need a pen or pencil with your weight. Grab your weight, still facing down and you will see a black release button on both sides on the inside of the weight. It is in between the metal dial and the inner part of the weight. Now press down on that button with your pen or pencil and start turning the dial (caution: the weight plates are going to fall out) keep turning until all of the plates are out. Do the same thing for the other side. Now grab each plate and put it back on the base where it goes, the smallest plate on the outside to the largest plate on the inside, make sure the small metal piece on the bottom of each plate is facing away from the inside of the base. Do this for all of the plates. Now back to the dumbbell. Grab your pen or pencil again and press down on the black release button and turn the dial to where the number 5 or lowest weight is selected where it reads Bowflex. Do this for both sides. Now grab your dumbbell and carefully put it back into the base. It is important that you put the dumbbell down straight, avoiding any shifting in plates.



I hope this helped.

The battery door on my hp photosmart M525 cracked and will not stay shut, therefore batteries fall out. I used a piece of tape keep the door shut, but it is a nice camera and I want it to work the way it...


Okay, from what you are saying its the weight of the battery that makes the battery cover fall of so i would apply a little, emphasis on little bit of glue before i put in the battery to hold the battery in place so the battery stays in even when the cover is not in place, then find a more stylish way of keeping the cover in place, maybe A LITTLE glue to the ridges that the cover slides on will be enough, you wont have any problem prying both lose when you have to, A LITTLE, lol , Hope this helps..

Baracuda keeps disconnecting from skimmer when timer on pool shuts off


Sounds like you need a cuff to go into the skimmer to hold the hose in place. Or you may have air in your system. This builds inside your filter then when the pump goes off the bubble expands up in size and blows back through system. Check all your hoses for air leaks if this is the problem. If they are OK start checking pump lid "O" rings and plumbing. get rid of the air and your problem should stop.

Little clip


is this a clip for holding something in place or a jumper like this one? 5269983d5c31a7ca
http://www.thg.ru/howto/20020904/print.html link if picture does not show ( scroll halfway down to see jumper photo.

if it looks like this , bend the two pins it goes on apart just a tiny bit before you replace it on the pins, this will add enough tension when you put the jumper on to keep it from freely falling offf

Heater pops the circuit breaker


2a9ae80.jpg
Lakewood 5500 Heater - Here is a picture of the rear side of the open heater thermostat with the two switches for 600 and 990W at the left. The 3oz metal piece is the weight that broke off from the thermostat assembly. It fell down and made a short between the case and the power switch. There is a visible burn mark where the short occurred.

I am convinced that if the heater ever falls over, the metal weight will break off and fall down and probably create a short against the case. It may disconnect the 120V power at the thermostat or cause a high enough current to kick out your breaker in the house.

The attachment of the 3oz metal weight to the back of the thermostat is not strong enough to survive when the heater falls over; it wil break off.
