Your piston stop has disintegrated. You will need to replace that. It sits inside the head valve and stops the piston before it hits the valve. To remove the valve, use a hard wood surface like a workbench or a cutting board. Cup your hand around the backhead and slam it down on the bench or board. It may take a couple of whacks. It will come out though. You can try prying it out with your fingers, but that is not very easy. You do not want to break it either, but you want to give it a hard enough jolt to dislodge the valve. You will have to replace all the o-rings on the outside of the valve as well as the inside o-ring. Make sure you disassemble the entire cylinder assembly and clean it out good. By that I mean remove the cylinder and cylinder ring and make sure you get all the debris out of there. If you miss some pieces you will have broken o-rings and seals and you nailer will not work after you complete this repair.

How do I replace rear coil springs


you need to buy or rent spring decompressors before you attempt to work on them. It is very dangererous otherwise. once tool is in place and spring decompressed to a 1/4 in gap on either top or bottom spring plate. in trunk remove carpet or felt cover.usually plastic snaps or screws into from the lining. from the wheel well there should be a plastic cap standard screw driver should be able to pop it open. this is a bolt to the shock. once removed the suspesion should drop and the spring is removable. but if the gas in shock wont go down then the bottom bolts need to removed, then use jack to decompress shock off mount and it should come out

I have a Hitachi NR83A3 framing nail gun. It won't drive nails flush. Adjusting the depth screw from one extreme to the other doesn't appear to help or change the driven nail depth. Any ideas?


Easy to check. Remove nails from gun and connect to air supply. Using hard rubber pad or soft wood depress and hold trigger and push nailer safety against pad and hold there. The gun will fire but the driver will stay down until you pull back on the gun and relieve pressure on the safety foot. With driver down examine the tip of the driver. It should look square and should extend about 1/4 inch or more past the nose. If tip is broken replace driver. If lots of air is leaking past the nose during test, also replace the lower bumper. Good luck

Nail gun will not fire a nail each time but only fires correctly ever other time and leaves dimple from the head firing.


Here are a few tests for you to try. You will need a piece of rubber or coiled up old hose.
First open side door and remove nails. Tilt gun head down then up again to check if piston is loose in the cylinder. The piston should stay in top position. If piston drops to bottom of cylinder remove head and replace piston oring or apply some layers of teflon tape under oring to expand oring slightly untill piston stays at top but still can be pushed down cylinder (look at the lower bumper to make sure that it is not cracked or missing pieces, if it is breaking up the pieces can lodge within the air path to the feeded piston). If driver piston now stays at top, connect air to gun and with side door open contact gun to rubber firing gun noticing the feeder movement. With very rapid firing of the gun, the feeder should move back and fourth just as fast as the driver moves. If the feeder seems to move slower than the driver moves then check/replace spring in feeder piston chamber. If spring seems strong enough in your opinion then problem is restriction in the air supply to feeder, if air path is clear then replace orings to feed piston. You will need to remove the two 6m allen screws at front of gun and split gun apart to check restriction at the oring sealing these two parts. Sometimes debris traped at oring (white oring) will restrict air to feeder. Good luck.

What causes it to shoot a double, or triple nail sometimes?


Make sure that orings are in good shape, lower bumper not cracked, (no leaks and the driver/piston stays at the top position, if piston drops a little or all the way down with no nails in gun, replace piston oring). Also check spring tension for feeder and two check paws in the door (feeder tension should be firm ). Adjust the timing screw up or down one or two turns and test (timing screw at the top of safety foot, head of screw pushes on the firing valve ). Test for lower bumper cracked. Remove nails and leave side door open. Hold the nose of the gun against coiled air hose or thick rubber and press and hold the trigger. The piston will stay down against the bumper until you release the trigger. No air should leak out the driver path. If air leaks past driver suspect bad bumper. Test action of feeder piston. Remove side cover to feed piston and clean debris. With air disconnected, move the feed piston back and forward. There should be a little resistance, if it moves very easy, suspect orings worn. As soon as you connect the air line. the feed piston should move forward with force, note the position of the feeder. Now with air disconnected, place nails on the feeder. The first nail should be well within the path of the driver. If not fully under driver path suspect worn feeder / feeder retainer pin, or debris inside feed piston chamber preventing piston from full forward travel (debris from inside of the gun will enter the feed piston chamber usually broken bits of lower bumper). Replace parts as needed. Good luck with your repair.

Problem: Model ES7037
CMB - Over the past month the Panasonic shaver would turn on with 3-4 tries, but now will not turn on at all – the on-off switch must be bad after only 7 months of wet use. Before sending in I found this diagram:

Disassembly: Remove bottom Phillips screw & end cap, pop off each plastic side with fingernails (reinstall them from top 1st), remove 4 screws, remove 2 clips, take top off. Remove battery case and the on-off little, white plastic lever fell out. Slide off the white plastic/metal on-off slider & clean contacts with knife … my bottom contact was black & top was clean.

Assembly: Reinstall on-off slider (white plastic with metal contacts) by sliding back in grooves -- hardest part - place the on-off plastic lever on the battery back unit – I tried to put it on the case and could not get it to stay on. Slide the battery pack back in with the plug prongs in the holes in the end being careful not to drop the on-off lever. Test shaver. Stuff battery wires inside case – screw 4 screws and add 2 clips on, then final screw in the end after cap placed on. Easy once I knew how to put the on-off lever on the battery side – that was tricky. Total time was about 1 hour – next time it will be about 15 minutes. Works great! jgg

Use that link to disassemble and clean the switch then put it back together.

All newer Panasonic Wet/Dry Shavers are probably the same.

Good Luck!

Front wheel slips off shaft


Pull the wheel off. Look on the back side of the wheel - you will see 4 plastic pins sticking out (inside the wheel) Use a pen to push on them - this way you will remove the hub cap without damaging it. Under the hub cap you will find the screw. You will need a torx T20 or Phillips crew driver (depending on what type of screw is there) to attach the wheel to the shaft with the screw. You can use a bit of a nail polish on the screw thread to keep from coming off again. DO NOT use glue or too much of nail polish or no one will be able to get the wheel of if needed some time in the future.

If hub cap nor the screw is there - you can find it all HERE.

Good Luck,
Rocky

Kenmore Quiet3 not cleaning top rack, now stopped cleaning all


The problem is likely that the cutter/chopper filter is plugged. This reduces or eliminates water flow to the cleaning arms.
Solution:
Remove dish baskets
Remove bottom arm - Rotate the centre post until arm is free to be lifted out.
Remove conduit to top arm(s) - Remove 2 screws, one at top and one at back. Rotate whole conduit 45 deg right and lift off of centre post.
Remove bottom plastic assembly. - Remove 4 screws and lift off.
Remove cutter cap. - Remove 1 screw at front left. Lift off plastic cap. Remove cutter filter. It is on a spring loaded pin. Pull cutter blade foreword and lift filter disc straight up. Clean filter disc thoroughly
Reassemble!

Think I will use it dry from now own since it had a lot of whiskers inside of it and maybe wash only the head as needed with baby shampoo and try to keep the insides dry. I never saw a rubber seal that I expected, but perhaps I missed seeing it. But, how would whiskers get into the inside unit if it was sealed correctly?

Good Luck!
