Parts and repairs and how to do it.

My Ekornes recliner began losing pieces of black plastic from both sides from the mechanism that permits reclining. I was curved with ridges. At this point the plastic has completely broken off and fallen out of its position. It makes a noise when one sits in the chair.

SOURCE: cosco juvenile stroller -- how do i change the

I have the same stroller. Look behind the seat back, where you should find a ring and a squeeze clip similar to those used to close bags of chips. Hold the ring, squeeze the clip, and push the seat back towards the front of the stroller.

SOURCE: Invacare power chair model #1089384;

Hope you have had this fixed by now. But in case not and you are not able to use the chair.
If the chair still drives it's not batteries. The toggle switch box should be ok if there is no visable damage to it. Bad connections of the wiring from the toggle switch box to power or the recline or tilt motor should be inspected. A electronic tech is needed for most electronic failures.

SOURCE: MY CHAIR IS IN THE RECLINING POSITION AND IT

The best thing to do in this situation is to call the vendor and have them repair it under warranty. There should be no charge for this service since the chair is brand new.
There are some checks you can make to avoid a service call. You have checked the batteries and hopefully the chair is plugged into the wall outlet. It is possible that something got disconnected under the chair. To check this you need to flip the chair over on its side or on its back since the leg rest scissor mechanism is extended. Look for any plugs that have come apart at their connections. Check for a pinched or binding scissor mechanism or tilt frame parts.
You should not attempt this at all if you cannot safely move a large piece of furniture. Perhaps a friend or relative may be able to help.
Insist that the vendor honor their warranty commitment ASAP. If you paid with a credit card, you should contact your credit card company to put the amount in dispute if the vendor is unresponsive. Hope this helps.

And you can troubleshoot with the below instructions if it with also help



things you'll need:

* Pride chair Owner's Manual
* Screwdriver
* Wrench
* Pliers

Instructions


Look at the chair's electrical plug, as the chair most likely became unplugged or the plug is not fully connected to the outlet. If this is the case, securely reconnect the plug.

Check the chair's connections. The electrical connections under the chair could be loose or connection cables could be pinched or bent. Tighten loose electrical connections with a small screwdriver and straighten bent or pinched cables.

Check the chair's transformer, motor and relay box under the chair as a malfunction in any of these could cause the chair to stop working completely. The hand control used by the operator to change the chair's position may also be malfunctioning.

Test the chair's wood frame, bolts and lift frame. Loose wood frames or bolts, overly tight bolts or the lift frame rubbing against the wood frame will all cause the chair to squeal.

Lay the chair on its side and check the wood frame and t-bracket. If the wood frame is rubbing against the lift frame or the t-bracket is cracking, you could hear popping noise. The t-bracket is the metal frame on the underside of the lift chair.

Check the dual motor timing if the chair will not recline all the way. The motors' timing could be off which would stop the chair from completely reclining. Put the chair on its side and remove the motor and plug it in. Use the hand control to turn the motor on and let it run until it stops on its own. Screw the push tube, located to the right of the drive tube where you just removed the motor, until you feel it bottoming out. Turn the push tube back two turns and grab the push tube. Turn the unit on with the hand control and allow the push tube to move away from the metal casing. Push the pin at the back of the push tube and reinstall the motor. This should re-time the motor.

Look at the wood frame, seat foam, leveling legs, motors and bolts if the chair is crooked. The wood frame could be twisted, the seat foam may be broken or misshapen, the leveling leg may need adjustment, the motor could be timed incorrectly or the bolts could be loose. If all looks in order, make sure the ground under the chair is level.

Unplug the chair before you begin fixing the chair.


Restore power to an inoperable lift chair. Ensure the circuit breaker box is connected to the electrical outlet. Make sure the external transformer is plugged directly into an electrical outlet.


Fix a Pride lift chair that only operates in one direction. Use a cotton swab to remove dust and debris from the toggle switch on the hand control. Flip the toggle switch back and forth to loosen any remaining debris which may be causing an obstruction.


Fix inoperable heat and massage features. Check the LED lights on the hand controls; the LED display is not lit, hand-tighten the connection between the hand control and the lift chair. Make sure the the heat and massage units are properly connected to the back of the lift chair.

I have a Maytag microwave UMV1152cas. I recently replaced the magnetron because it was not cooking food. I began putting it back together and have it all back together except for a plastic piece.


HI,

Maybe this will help. Here is a link to an explode view of your Microwave. There are other exploded views on the right-hand side of the page.

Home Meridian Comfort Lift Chair - lift mechanism is sloppy in partially reclined positions


Bolts commonly loosen up on these. You may be able to tighten them. I had to turn the chair over, pull out some of the staples that hold the material on and find the nut that went on the inside, then I was able to tighten the bolt again and staple the material back in place. I also had to make a new plastic cross bar for the scissor assembly by using a half inch PVC pipe and two flat plugs and two couplings, I then drilled a hole in the center for the screws to go in. Painted the newly made one with black plastic paint from Lowes and it's stronger now then before. If you want parts here is Home Meridian's contact..........

How do i replace the reclining lever for a 2008 dodge avenger


The mechanism is probably held in with a bolt and spring, so you'll
have to remove the plastic side cover around the bottom of the seat,
to gain access. Once the cover is off, you will just need to remove and
replace the bad parts.

Mechanism that reports closed door is broken, HP 6988. This is a plastic arm that engages the cartridge door and tells the printer that the door is closed.


There is a DYI fix for this that is simple to do.

Looking at the front of the printer, you will need to remove white panel in the RIGHT side. (Pull outward on the bottom of the panen and it should easily come off without damaging it.) This will reveal the small gears that are attached to the printer and the lid.

There is a small plastic piece sticking thru the side of the printer and is moved by the gears. When the printer lid is open, the plastic piece is allowed to move down towards the bottom of the printer. When the lid is closed, the plastic piece moves towards the top of the printer.

In the printer I just fixed, the plastic gear was partially broken and the part that should contact this plastic piece was missing.

The fix:

1. Use tape an tape the plastic piece to the top of the hole so it will always register the lid as being closed

2. Keep the side panel off and, when you close the lid, make sure the plastic piece is lifted and held in place by what remains of the gear.

This fix just saved my customer from having to discard over 10 ink jet cartridges - easily several hundred dollars.

While this fix is not supported by HP, it will allow you to continue to use the printer.
