SOURCE: Beetle Convertible window problem

My wife's car is a 2004 convertible. We had the same problem. There is a switch built into the door latch assembly. Whenever you pull either the interior or exterior door handle, the switch lowers the door glass a certain amount.

We replaced the door latch assembly and that corrected the problem.

Well sounds like its a pressure setting. you said you open the door by hand? Was it easy to do? Ask your self this can a 15 year old kid open it and close it? If so then it sounds like its a presure setting There should be two blue slots on your opener with numbers 1-9 says up and down force. Turn the up force towards the bigger number. Just a little bit. But before you do that as the other guy stated make sure that your cables and springs are working. Spring depending on your doors can be in three places but we going to assume you has the most common set up so look over the top of your door (with it closed) you should eb able to see a tube running across there. and somewhere in the in middle a set of spring look at the spring to make sure that you dont see any of the tube showing in the springs. Becare not to touch the spring as they are under a lot of stress.

SOURCE: Driver's door is not opening using exterior door handle

Normally it will be the small retainer that holds the inside of the door handle to the part that hooks to the latch assembly. Or it is possible that the door handle part is broken, but not likely. You will have to have the window raised, and remove the door panel and look inside the door panel where the handle attaches to see what the problem is. May help to have a flashlight. These are sometimes difficult to fix as there is not much room to work & the parts have to be attached for the exterior handle to work. Rick

Waupaca 3 stop elevator. Power went out. Stuck between floors. How reset elevator to get to proper floors?


There should be an escape hatch above your head on the ceiling panel. Try that but be careful. If not, pick up that phone next to the floor numbers and call the fire department.

Door latch stuck


Bend down on one knee and use one hand to hold the exterior door handle in the open position while using a screw driver to disengage the door latch by inserting the screw driver's tip into the anchor hole and push the screw driver outward towards the car.

My ge micro will not stop turning


HELLO.

If by not turning mean turntable fault,the solution is given below in detail.

1 Press "Stop" to halt microwave operation.

2 Press the "Turntable" button once to turn off rotation.

3 Push the door-release button to open the microwave oven if you do not have a "Turntable" button on your control keypad.

4 Lift and remove the glass platter from the oven, then pick up the plastic track with three wheels below the platter. Set aside these parts.

5 Insert the elevated microwave cooking tray into the oven. The tray has three to four short legs that hold it above the bottom of the microwave, keeping it from interfering with the rotating bolt in the bottom center of the oven the drives the turntable. You can now place food on the elevated tray and cook normally without disrupting the drive bolt.

Thanks.

The power funtion drive on my Invacare Storm TDX 5 wheelchair, which operates the tilt, recline, elevating leg rest and seat elevator has stopped working. The drive switch as it appears on the LED screen...


1) Yes your power seat functions can be programed into your drive 4,You'll need a programmer or have to take it into a shop.
2) yes the chair can be manually elevated down,You'll want to take it to a shop for that ,because it requires jumping the power to the seat elevator and swapping the wires around and I would never recommend my customers to do such a thing because of electric shock or burning up the chair.

If your chair has a four wat toggle switch("what controls your power seat functions elev,recl,telt,ext) If thats what your using right now there may be a red light that comes on in drive lock out ,If that light is not on follow that wire all the way down it may have been pinched or cut.If so it will need to be replaced.


Problems like this one is hard to trouble shoot over text or phone ,if your four way switch cord is cut or smashed .Your gunna have to take it into a shop just to make sure ,It didnt cause any electrical problems in your chair .

Good luck hope i had the chair in front of me so i could help you more.

Eletric won't roll up or down. makes clicking noise.


The clicking tells me that the elevator motor is getting power. In my experience, these motors brushes wear out over time, this makes them weaker n slower to the point where they just stop working. You can get a replacement for about 40 bucks.

Before you go and get a replacement elevator motor, using utility gloves, remove old motor. Do this by holding the glass up using clear or duck tape if the window is rolled up, if the window is rolled down, insert a towel or a rag in one of the openings the bottom of the door then carefully remove the elevator motor and seat the glass on the towel, test it's funcionality while still plugged in. Also inspect the elevator hardware to make sure nothing is bent or broken, specially the fastener that holds the window glass to the elevator rail.

I hope this will help you fix your problem.

Good luck

The garage door will go down to the floor and then stop and come back up on its own. also at times will only go down to remain open 3-4 inches


Sounds like you need to recalibrate the stop point. If its coming back up the sensors may be off alingment (make sure the lights green/amber are solid and not flickering) or the door may sense an object that isn there and reverse. You can google Chamberlain powerdrive door opener manual and dwnload it for programing instructions.
