    Do I need to push in the head as I turn it like when it is oushed in when releasing more line? Should I have it fully pushed in while trying to turn it or just have it out as it normally sits? Thanks! Emily

Won't spin with clothes in. Will spin when empty


Check the drive belt and tension arm spring and make sure it has not dislocated itself. The drive belt is the most likely problem if the motor is running during the spin cycle.

Door won't stay shut, microwave will not start


Contact the maker or Google the model number for "parts"

That part likely will require the unit to be taken apart to replace it.

I have an RYOBI 24V String Trimmer - RY24200. At the same time the head broke & stopped spinning, I heard something loose in the head. When I took the head apart I found 2 screws had come loose from...


This is a very late answer to your question, but I had exactly the same problem with the screws rattling around in the head. I took the casing apart very slowly because I figured there was a spring for the swivel mechanism that might fly out. The spring you describe lays in a groove on the casing piece that attaches to the shaft close to the head casing. You will see near the top of the head casing, a small, plastic pin that will sit in the end of this spring to hold it in place. Carefully set the head piece back into the shaft casing to prevent the spring from popping back out. I did this repair in about 10 minutes and I'm not even that technically adept.

I need to rewind the spring and starter pull cord. I need to understand how all the parts fit together


I had the same problem. I had to take it apart and rewind it manually. To do this:
Step 1:
There are 4-bolts to remove on the orange plastic section the screw into the motor housing (one of them is hidden inside the orange plastic housing, you'll see an opening for it). There are also 3 screws in the black plastic exhaust housing that screw into the orange plastic housing, find those and remove.

Step 2:
Carefully remove the engine from the plastic housing. I didn't disconnect the throttle cable or the electric wires (points) just kind of worked around them.

Step 3:
The mechanism is kind of crappy. There are two black pieces with a spring in the middle, and a metal disc on the bottom with a ribbon coil on the underside of it. The top plastic piece is what turns the flywheel when you pull the cord. The spring in between connects the two plastic piece. This is probably what popped out. There is a piece sticking up on one end, which inserts into the hole in the top black plastic piece. If you remove the little guardrail things you can probably remove just that piece. KEEP TENSIONS ON THE PULL CORD. Once you remove that top black piece, it should start to recoil.

Step 4:
If it did recoil, put the spring back in the top plastic piece, and then put the plastic/spring combo back into the the bottom plastic piece, there is a little groove for the bottom of the spring to slide into. Then put the little guardrail screws back on. Make sure the big metal wire thing hasn't slipped down into the shaft of the weed whacker. That needs to go back into the motor, as it is what gets spun and in turn spins the strings. As you start to put the motor back in, you may have to pull on the pull cord a few times to get the flywheel and plastic piece to line up. Once you hear the motor start to catch, then you should be able to wiggle it back into place and put back all of the screws. Then give it a shot. If it pulls out again, you may have to drill a new hole into the top black plastic piece for that spring to slide into (this is the crappy design part).

Step 5:
If the pull cord didn't retract, you need to remove the other two pieces (lower black plastic piece and metal disc with ribbon). The metal ribbon has a nub on the outside that hooks onto a plastic piece in the bottom of the orange plastic housing. You'll need to wind it around once or twice to "charge" the ribbon, then wind the string back on the black plastic piece. The black piece should slide into the center of the metal disc and catch the inside of the ribbon. Once you get these two together, again, make sure the metal ribbon piece is wound once past normal and then you have to slide both parts together down into the housing catching the metal ribbon loop over the orange plastic nub. It's tricky, it took me a few tries. Once you get that you can try and test the pull cord, you'll see it pull out and feel it retract due to that metal ribbon. Then go back and do step 4, where you put the upper black plastic piece with spring back into place and replace the little metal guardrails.

This whole thing took a few tries, and the pull cord still gets stuck out. It's a major pain to say the least, but after the 5th time fixing it, you'll be a real pro.

Position of part for TRO910W


take the cover off by removing 6 screws around the back and 7 on the bottom (2 of these are safety screws but can be removed by a small flathead screwdriver); once you romove the wrap-around "hull" or cover you can see the spring on the left side of the oven from the frontal view.; the door stop is sort of a L shaped piece which you insert from the inside of the opening on the frame & thru the little hole on the left side of the door; once you do this stretch the spring and attach to the hole into hole you see on the middle of the L shaped piece.

Whirlpool Ultimate Care II drum does not spin.


Depending on your washing machine model, the drum and motor are connected by 2 plastice yellow circular pieces, with a black rubber washer in the middle with holes where the pegs or rods go into. The 2 plastic circular pieces have 3 pegs or rods if you will, that connect to the black rubber washer via 3 holes. Sometimes, one or both of the 2 plastic circular piece pegs get broken off or the rubber washer cracks and breaks apart, so that the motor will not turn the drum. If thats the case, you can purchase the 2 circular pieces and black washer piece as a set.
