Handle unhooked Went to start mower - handle is way way too loose in the assembly. I can see a spring and metal hook. Of course mower won't start. This is the orange handle you pull up to start the mower.

WhenI let go of the safety handle the mower will not turn off unless I let go of the handle slowly to a certain spot and then it will turn off. Any suggestions? Thanks Dave

if you follow the cable to the engine look at bracket you will see the mechanics of the emergency shut off and look close there will be a white clip with a black wire under it the clip is spring loaded push up on clip the wire comes off clean and reassemble make sure the clip is touching metal when the handle is not held down if not adjust so with handle completely released the metal part of the white clip touches metal there you go have a great day

How do i rewind the recoil spring on my craftsman lawn mower?

Normally these small engines use a clock spring to retract the rope.
Remove the cover on the top and you should find the spring either broken or the tab where the spring end has broken off or jumped out of the mount.
You will need to pre-load the spring with enough tension to retract the rope.
Remove the pull handle from the rope, load the spring and then wrap the rope around the pully holding the pully and spring in the loaded position. place the end of the rope through the hole and tie up the handle. The rope should pull and retract without being installed on the engine.

How do you replace the pull cord?

take the top off the engine, the cover. take it to the toro place or where you buy your mower parts. bring everything, like the handle, the old rope etc so they can get the length right. let them look at the spring and the throwout dogs for the flywheel. buy what you need. if they are nice, they will put it on for you. if not, the spring, you will find is about 15 feet long, all wound up. if its unwound, you have to wind it back up. its easier to leave it with them and pick it up later. otherwise you get to assemble it and turn, hold, turn hold etc till its wound. you have to unbend the tabs to get it apart. you have to precut the rope to the right length,attach to the winder pulley, and leave the distance to the loop in the handle. pry off the handle cover and pick out the broken rope. when done reinstall your handle on the new rope, tie it, and reinstall the handle cover. set the engine cover on. fasten it in place, feed the rope up to the loop in the metal mower handle, unbend the loop slightly so the rope slips back in. i find budweiser helps

Door latch

see this causes and fix it. God bless you
Open Lever If the microwave door won't open the open lever might be broken. This part can be replaced separately.

Door Spring If the microwave door won't open the door spring may have broken. The door spring is located inside the door and keeps downward pressure on the door hook.

Door Latch If the microwave door won't open the door latch might be broken. The door latch is inside the microwave. The door hook, which is part of the door, engages with the latch to keep the door closed during operation. If the door latch or actuator breaks the door may not open.

Door Hook If the microwave door won't open the door hook might not be releasing properly. The door hook is installed inside the door and normally releases when the door is opened. The hook is made of plastic and will break over time. When this happens it will need to be replaced, it can't be repaired.

Button Spring If the microwave door won't open the button spring might be broken internally. The button spring can be replaced.
Button If the microwave door won't open the button might be broken internally. The button can be replaced.

Handle Actuator If the microwave door won't open the handle actuator might be broken. This is a plastic part which can become brittle over time. This part is connected between the door button and the door latch assembly.

How do you change pull cord on mower

  1. Undo and remove screws holding the starter cowling onto the engine. Remove cowling carefully
  2. Use a screwdriver to prise up the clips that hold the pulley unit inside the cowling
  3. On the side of the pulley there is a slot which the end of the recoil spring hooks into - unhook the spring
  4. Allow the spring to uncoil from the pulley and unhook the other end of it from the centre of the pulley boss.
  5. Pull out remains of old cord and thread new one it. Tie a stopper knot in the end but do not wrap it around the pulley yet.
  6. refit the spring and fir the pulley back into the retaining clips on the cowling.
  7. Turn the pulley 13 and 1/4 turns anti-clockwise to wind the spring up again.
  8. Whilst holding the pulley push the un-knotted end of the cord through the cowling and refit the handle

Trying to replace ext spring on lawnflite 548 can't get the spring to stretch the last inch.

You don't specify which spring but if you take a piece of starter cord, tie it in a loop and hook it on the loose end of the spring, put in a long screwdriver, a piece of broom handle or anything similar, it will give you a lot more leverage to pull the spring. Once you get it to where it needs to go, you can maneuver it to get it hooked then just cut the rope and pull it out

Exterior rear door handle on Honda Accord 2001

To Remove Door Panel on 2001 Honda Accord:

A: To remove the plastic piece with the door lock button and door handle connected to it:

1- Remove the screw in the middle located behind a plastic cover button
2- Push (slide) the whole assembly Forward (toward front of car)
Besides the screw, it is held in place by 3 hooks on the backside that hook into holes in the metal door frame
3- Now unhook handle from small metal bar going through door by pushing (toward door) plastic clip (blue?) off of the bar, then the bar will come out of the clip hole, thus releasing the handle.
4- Depress little grey button /bar (purple painted on it)on elec. connector to seperate connector, thus releasing door lock switch

Now the whole assembly (metal handle, door lock switch, and plastic piece) will come off door panel

B: The door is held on by 2-screws, 7-plastic snaps/plugs, and 1-plastic plug.

The screws are located: bottom of hand hold and the other behind the handle, both covered by little covers that have to be pryed off to access the screws.(hint: the screw with the built in spacer goes behind the handle when you are trying to reinstall)
The 7-plastic snaps: 3 across bottom and 2 on each side. Not visible, they are mounted to the inside of the panel.
The 1-plastic plug is visible at the upper front of the panel and is the same color as the surrounding trim

C: Take off the big plastic triangle piece above the door panel and behind the mirror. Pull/pry off. It has 2 snaps holding it on. one near bottom and one near the front.

D: Light lens prys off from bottom. Unscrew (1/4 turn) the light assembly with bulb still intact from backside of panel

E: Remove the Hand-Hold/window switch assembly:

Inside door handle

Remove the two screws in the arm rest pocket. Carefully pry around the bottom edge of the upholstered panel to release nylon stud & socket fasteners. Remove triangle trim panel at forward edge of window by prying loose the same fastener in the middle of that panel...lift upwards to remove. Lift the entire panel to unhook the top edge which hooks over the sheetmetal at the bottom of the window opening. The trim around the doorhandle is held in place by three three j-hooks which must be pressed towards the center of the handle to release. The door handle assy simply slides forward about 1/2" before coming loose from the metal in the door. You can buy extra stud & socket assemblies at a chev garage for pennies
