Our DYSON SLIM DC18 no longer switches from floor to hand held. I disassembled it and found the plastic piece with the ratchet broken at the ratchet. How and where can I order a replacement piece?


Find a local Dyson repair facility. You could buy it online but it might be easier to insure you get the correct part by showing the part to them.

Problem with retractable cord on hand mixer


Hi Sandy

Retractable cord mechanisms, after a while, can get a bit dodgy, especially with things like mixers where there may have been years of accumulated batter, frosting, bread dough, or what have you that got splattered on the cord and subsequently sucked back up into the retractor reel. They typically have an inertial ratchet that lets you pull out, but sticks on retract, unless you pull the cord all the way out to reset.

Before starting, cardinal rule is:
Always unplug before working on electrical stuff. If it's already acting up, you don't need to discover a short or a bit of bare insulation by shocking yourself or starting a fire.

With it unplugged:
  1. Pull the cord out as far as it would normally go. Depending on the exterior, give it a wipedown with a cleaning towel and a surface cleaner like simple green or windex. See if it's looking like it's coughing crumbs out of the cord hole as you pull.
  2. Let it retract all the way, then pull all the way back out. After you have a bit of cord out, pull it a short ways at higher speed, then let it retract back in, solid quick pull, slow retract. You're trying to get the ratchet to re-engage if it's gotten stuck or gummed up.
  3. If you can't get any response the above, you may have to consider whether you want to take it apart. Use a search engine to look for 'My mixer make/model service manual', or 'How to replace cord for my make/model mixer'. Likely as not, someone can go through replacement, which will give you the steps to open it up and just see if it needs cleaning. And, if something has just broken, you'll be in a position to replace it.
  4. A final thought - if it's working fine, and it's just an issue of the retracting cord pulling at the mixer as you work, you can also use a temporary cord-hold. You don't want to do anything that could pinch or cut the cord, but something like a medium sized binder clip, perhaps with a fold of tower inside , can be clipped onto the cord right where it emerges from the mixer, after you have enough cord out. The binder clips are cheap, pretty strong. and not likely to pop off without a deliberate re-opening when you're done.
Good Luck!

Pull cord recoils but doesn't seem to be coupled to motor


must be an old briggs engine ? i'll bet

you need to remove the cover from the engine ,7-16th wrench there are three bolts , lift cover straight up from engine , turn cover over and using compressed air blow out grass and other dirt in there (cover ur eyes) back on engine there is a small silver cover just below center of flywheel (round thing) , using a lite grade oil spray liberally around the edges of cover , rotate four sided nut backwards a few times with hand , till you hear balls inside come free , reinstall cover , reinstall three bolts , start engine normally

Tecumseh lh318sa auger does not work


If you are asking about the pull cord and when you pull it the engine does not turn and the cord pulls super easy it generally means that the dogs inside the cove assembly are not engaging. This may be caused by a broken spring or dog inside the pull cord assembly. You would need to carefully remove the assembly cover from the engine and pull the cord to see if the dogs are protruding from the assembly if not you would need to repair or replace the parts as needed if so then you would have to check if the will still extend under strain, if not then repair if they still protrude under strain you would have to examine the engine where the unit was removed and look for damage or wear and replace parts accordingly. If you are in fact asking about the front or snow auger on the snow blower itself then the most likely answer would be that you have sheared a pin which holds the auger to the shaft that rotates it. The shear pins (as they are called) are designed with softer metal to break if you hit a large piece of ice, stick or rock that may damage more important and expensive parts of the blower if they stayed intact during the incident. To fix this merely find the hole in the auger along the shaft that is no longer pinned (the auger should spin freely) spin it to line up with the hole n the shaft (which may still have a broken piece of the shear pin in it) drive out any remaining pin with a punch and replace with the appropriate pin for your machine. If the pins are intact you may have a bad belt, pulley, or tensioner and you would have to move further into the repair process.

My honda pull starter will not budge--not a half inch. It's a hard stop! It was working before I replaced the blade


The pull starter ratchet is probably jammed (where the rope is).

I would spray WD-40 in the mechanism, then work the cord gently to see if it will come out -- repeat until you're convinced it's not going to work.

If this doesn't work the top will need to be removed -- this is not a simple task because of the strong spring -- if you're not a reasonably experienced mechanic, I would take it to a repair shop.

My Briggs stratton mtd lawn nower does't wanna start because ussally it pulls the starting cord out of my hands when it's about to start then it goes off.


Hello,

The recoil line isn't disengagimg when the engine first comes to life, and it's pulling back in under power, choking itself off. Here's what to do:

Remove the sheetmetal cowl that has the recoil starter in it. Remove the wire screen over the top of the magneto and ratcheting mechanism. The ratcheting mechanism is the four cornered part that the cowl fit onto, and it is screwed onto the crankshaft end where it comes up through the magneto. Use a block of wood and a hammer to unscrew the ratchet. Careful here; the ratchet has steel balls in it, and you don't want to lose them. Clean out the ratcheting mechanism and put a liberal dose of graphite in the cavity. If the steel balls are out of place, put them back evenly spaced, and work the ratcheting mechanism to distribute the graphite. Reassemble the mower.
Best regards, --W/D--

Lawnmower Starting Pull Cord Replaement


There will be a piece of casing that holds the starter mechanism in. Usually held by 4 screws (probably torx screws unless it's an old machine).
Undo these screws and you will find the cord carrier inside.
Observe how the starter dogs are located, and how it all goes together.
You may be able to remove & replace the cord without taking the carrier off the casing, but it is probably easier if you do.

Then you simply remove the old cord, thread a new cord through the hole & tie it. Reassemble the carrier onto the casing. Thread the cord out of the casing & through the handle, tie that end.
Then wind the cord around the cord carrier until there is a slight tension on the spring.
Screw the casing back on the mower and you're away.

Retractable power cord


JUST LIFT OFF THE TOP HALF. CAREFULLY REACH IN FROM THE LEFT SIDE AND DISCONNECT THE CLEAR PLASTIC HOSE THAT IS ATTACHED TO THE "DIAL" ON TOP OF THE MACHINE. THEN LAY THE TOP HALF OF THE MACHINE TO THE RIGHT. DON'T DISCONNECT ANY WIRES. YOU'LL HAVE TO HAVE A NEW CORD WINDER (LOOK ON E-BAY). THE MOTOR AND CORD WINDER ARE ATTACHED TO EACH OTHER BY WIRES AND CAN BE LIFTED OUT OF THE CANISTER.EVERYTHING YOU DO JUST REMEMBER THAT ALL OF THESE PARTS ARE ATTACHED TO EACH OTHER BY WIRES. THE ONLY WIRES YOU'LL NEED TO DISCONNECT ARE THE ONES ATTACHED TO THE CORD WINDER ASSEMBLY. THEY JUST PULL OFF, NO TOOLS ARE NEEDED.
QUITE FRANKLY THIS IS A ROYAL PAIN AND YOU'LL PROBABLY WISH YOU TOOK IT TO A REPAIR (AERUS/ELECTROLUX) SHOP. IF YOU DECIDE TO DO IT YOUR SELF TAKE PICTURES OF EVERY STEP...'CAUSE YA GOTTA PUT IT ALL BACK TOGETHER.
GOOD LUCK!
