Same thing Happened to Us. I corrected it by unscrewing the top and re-snapping into place the Open/Close mechanism.

My rexel stapler does not work, any help[

When you lift up the top of the stapler (as though you are going to put staples in), does the pusher slide freely back and forth? It might be getting stuck at some point and not pushing the staples (either due to a worn pusher spring, or friction). First (after removing the staples) try spraying some light oil on the mechanism and lifting the top part of the stapler up and down a few times and observe how easily it moves back and forth. Also, with the top open try GENTLY sliding back and forth a little - if it slides fine with no sticking, try loading staples and using stapler. If it slides ok, but doesn't quickly return to it's "normal position" when pulled so as to put tension on the spring, rhen the spring may be worn and need replacing.

2000 vw bora se tdi overheating and water disappearing

Hey. Looks like you loosing coolant somewhere. Check radiator and hoses for leaks first. Than check thermostat, fan should engage between 95-100 degrees if it doesn't it may be cooling fan relay or fan itself. Next would be a water pump and if this is not it you may have leak indside the engine. Let me know what you found.

96 Firebird, Replaced water pump, fuel pump - Now blows head gasket.

Get yourself another mechanic. This guy is not doing his job. It shouldn't cost $1600 to change a water pump and fuel pump. No proper mechanic would remove a thermostat to replace the O-ring and put the old thermstat back in. It wouldn't be uncommon for the coolant level to drop after changing the thermostat. It probably only needs to be topped up. No, the motor doesn't have to come out to replace the head gasket and I don't see it costing $2500. Before you spend any more money there, take the car somewhere else and get another opinion. I bet that if you fill up the coolant bottle for 2 0r 3 days it will stop losing coolant. Hope this helps.

I shut off my pump yesterday and water shot out of the skimmer. when i turned the pump on it wouldn't work, the pump basket has water in it but it isn't pumping anything, no water coming out of...

I suspect you had air trapped in the filter. When the pump shut down, the compressed air in the filter pushed back, turned the pump backwards, and unscrewed the impeller off the motor shaft. This particular pump doesn't use an impeller screw which prevents this from happening. You will have to pull the pump apart to see if this is the cause. I have seen this happen many times.

The second led is flashing. Water did nit drain at first. Then drained. Cannot press the start/reset button, nothing happens. Sounds like the pump was working, now doesn't seem to be. Help!!!

Dishwasher not draining issue usually occurs due to kinked drain pipe, clogged drain filter or drain pump. First make sure that the drain is not clogged and remove clogs if present. If no visible lint is present then remove the lower front access panel to check the drain filter and drain pump for any clogs, you'll need to clean the drain filter and drain pump completely. Also, check for any food pieces stuck near the pump impeller & clean the chopper assembly. Please note that dishwashers don't drain out the complete water such that heating element doesn't overheat. Hope this helps... Please post back for any further assistance.

Hi, I bought a canon legria fs200 last year in september, and recently i looked at my camera to find the automatic lens cover sitting halfway. The thing is, its not actually stuck, there is some kind of...

The lens cover mechanism in these cameras is susceptible to debris and requires disassembling the camera to repair. This can be repaired fairly inexpensively. However, it's not a user serviceable problem due to the fact that the camera will need to be partially disassembled and will need to be repaired by a qualified service technician.

My name is Rick and I'm a professional repair technician with over 20 years in the business and have repaired many of these. I'm semi retired and work from home with little overhead so I can keep repair costs low. If you decide to have the camera repaired, please click HERE for a directory listing that suits your needs.

HELP! My 1125 Dell printer is giving me problems! I installed the ink cartridge, as I have done MANY times before, but the green handle is blocking the door from closing. It seems as if it is all the way...

I have had the same problem. I dread trying to change the toner cartridge because it just doesn't fit once you take it out. There is something really wrong with this printer. I am not incapable of changing a cartridge. But this particular configuration doesn't work right once you take the tray out. In fact, it is so difficult to get the green handle to fit back in properly, I'm pretty sure that it is responsible for the fact that the paper feed tray doesn't work anymore. I hate this printer. Really.

Ran without water will not fill now

Try unplugging the machine for 30 minutes then plugging it back in. I am worried that the pump is bad due to the fact that it needs water to add resistance to work properly and without water the pump spins so free the it burns itself out. But first try unplugging the dishwasher first

Washing machine creda front loader

I had the same Problem on a 17112e Creda, I took the top off and using a torch located the red plastic door release mechanism, I then pressed a white button in the centre of it and the door released. I believe that the washing machine was overloaded and auto cut out. I reloaded the machine with fewer items and it is now working.
