Yes usually you will need to repair because bracket inside wore down it cost you around 40.00 and is very hard to find after alot of reserach I found a local guy to help me and it works great , Take off retainer clip and thing will come apart both spring and bracket then you pull four clips out and replace all of the following

My mom gave my daughter Casio ctk551 keyboard adapter has power and we've tried batteries keyboard will not come on noticed a little rust on back plate took off clean with dry cloth nothing any sugges

Rust is an indication that the unit has water or moisture damage. The keyboard should power up using batteries or the adapter. Is the adapter is one supplied by Casio? Perhaps the batteries were/are put in the unit in the wrong direction or polarity? Take the batteries out completely and then try the power adapter. If this fails, I suggest returning the Casio for a replacement.

How do you replace handle adpater for moen 8400 monticello faucet

The handle adapters that Moen makes are right and left. Because you bought a universal one, it works on both the right and left, but only turns one way. If you but an original Moen part, you won't have this problem.

Good morning my plummer put in my new 980t sd -dst touch 20 works so far....however my pull down hose i have to some what push it back up for it to go in......on the video it looks like it...

If you can, look up under sink for hose attached to faucet. There should be a weight on the hose, to assist in retracting it. Usually just a bolted on round lead weight that wraps around the metal sleeve of the hose. Perhaps he forgot it, or it needs to be moved/adjusted by loosening off the bolts that hold it together and sliding it up or down the hose. He may have even routed hose wrong. Have someone pull it out and slide back in while you watch it.

To fix leak my maintenance guy removed Blanco faucet (Model 157 074 E). When he put the check valve assy back on the faucet would not work, i.e., no water. It works without the check valve assy but water...

Hi, If the the check is put on backwards it will not allow any water to flow. There's usually an arrow. As far as the water pressure goes...check the on - off shut off valve. Also check for obstructions, like bits of O ring or rubber in the supply side of the faucet. They can possibly make it to the valve on the faucet.

Brita faucet filter will not stay on faucet

Want a free adapter and patient enough to wait for a couple of weeks to get them?
"To receive a special adapter free of charge, call 1-800-24-BRITA or 1-800-387-6940 (CANADA)."
Call the number above and a voice prompt will give you instructions on how to get your adapter for free. 2 weeks might be too long but the best thing is it is made of stainless steel/chrome and it comes in 3 different kind of adapters with rubber washers.
