    I drilled the stub of the old knob - I got it off. Now where do I get just a knob and not the entire timer assesmby - you know, like it was in the old days when you could replace just the broken parts and not the unnecessary things like the blasted factory mandates that you do. Thanks for you help - I really do appreciate it!!!

Pull the knob off, some units have a set screw that holds it inplace but most are just tight fit. May need to pry it off. The screw that holds the control in the front plate is under the knob. Take the back plate off which is just behind the control. label the wires as you remove them or unplug one wire and put it on the same plug on the new control.

    To get only the shaft you would need to find an otherwise bad control with a good knob and take the two appart and make one good one. Can't get just the shaft form any supplier I know..Sorry.

Where is the air and heat blend motor on a 2000 dodge dakota?


Hi Sharon, I'm glad to help. Your 2000 year doesn't have a motor for the temp door. It operated by a cable running from the control head to the temp door and you work it manually. If you can't control the temperature from hot to cold, sometimes the cable come off or breaks. Here how you can see the cable to see if its working. Remove the radio and right behind it you will see the cable attached to the door, while watching it move the temp lever from hot to cold and watch it. If it is moving then its most likely out of ajustment. If it is not moving, then you'll need a new cable. Just in case it is moving, I'm attaching the instruction on how to adjust it below. Hope this helps and have an awesome day Sharon!



TEMPERATURE CONTROL CABLE

Any time the heater-A/C control or the temperature control cable are removed and/or replaced, the following procedure must be performed.
  1. The temperature control cable housing and core must be installed at both the heater-A/C control and the heater-A/C housing ends, and the heater-A/C control must be installed in the instrument panel. See Heater-A/C Control and Temperature Control Cable in the Removal and Installation section of this group for the procedures.
  2. Rotate the temperature control knob on the heater-A/C control so that the knob pointer is in the 12 o'clock position.
  3. Pull the temperature control knob straight out from the heater-A/C control base until the perimeter of the knob (not the knob pointer) protrudes about 6 millimeters (0.25 inch) from the face of the control base.
  4. Rotate the temperature control knob to the 1 o'clock position. Push in on the knob slightly and continue rotating the knob to its full clockwise stop. The knob pointer should be aimed at a position about 8 millimeters (0.315 inch) beyond the end of the graduated red strobe temperature control graphic on the face of the heater-A/C control base. If the knob is not pointed to the correct position, go back to Step 2 and repeat the adjustment procedure.
  5. Rotate the temperature control knob counterclockwise until the knob pointer is in the 12 o'clock position again.
  6. Push the temperature control knob straight in towards the heater-A/C control base until the perimeter of the knob (not the knob pointer) is flush with the face of the heater-A/C control base.
  7. Rotate the knob to its full clockwise stop again. The knob pointer should be aimed at the end of the graduated red strobe temperature control graphic on the face of the heater-A/C control base. If OK, go to Step 8. If not OK, go back to Step 2.
  8. Rotate the knob to its full counterclockwise stop and release the knob. If the knob springs back from the counterclockwise stop, the self-adjuster clip that secures the temperature control cable to the blend-air door lever is improperly installed. See Temperature Control Cable in the Removal and Installation section of this group for the procedures. If the knob does not spring back, the temperature control cable adjustment is complete.

How do I fix the clock


Push the main control knob (right side of the unit) either up or down, until the Kenwood's display screen shows "Clk Adj." Press the center of the control knob for about a second to enter the clock-setting mode.

  • 2 Push the main control knob either up or down to set the Kenwood's hour display. Stop when the correct hour shows on the screen.
  • 3 Push the main control knob to either the right or left to adjust the minute display. Stop when the correct hour shows on the screen.
  • 4 Press the "Menu" button located in the bottom-left corner to save the changes you made to the clock. This returns you to the main menu

    The volume control knob on my FH-P4200MP is wobbly and difficult to operate....can this be fixed?


    yes.but you need to pull the component out to open the main casing of the unit..another solution for that is that you pull the vol control knob check if its broken, and maybe it can be replaced..or maybe it only needs a little glue.

    My 2005 highlander has the knobs that control the heating and coolinf fan, temperature and vent. The temperature control knob is randomly changing to hot when it is set on cold and visa versa when you turn...


    Hello, and welcome to FixYa, Please allow me to assit you.

    The issue that you are having is indeed in the control assembly. Yes, it does cost over 600 dollars to replace it.

    However...if you have any soldering skills, or know someone that does have soldering skills, you can fix this problem yourself.

    All that is wrong with the controller is a broken wire going from the small printed ciorcuit board that the knob is located on, to the controller's main PC board. Removal of the controller, and a disassembly will show you the broken wire. Just solder the wire back to the terminal that does not have a wire on it will fix you right up, AND save you 600 dollars!!!

    Thanks for choosing FixYa for advice today.

    My 2004 toyota highlander a/c blows cold air and also hot air. Do you know what causes this and how much it will cost me to fix it?


    Yes, I know the answer. The wires on the heat control knob have come loose from the main circuit board. It is a ERY expensive part to replace. However, you can repair it, if you, or somebody you know, can solder wires. You will need to remove the AC amplifier assembly, and disassemble it. it is apart, you will se 1 or 2 broken wires on the control knob circuit board that connects to the main board. Resolder them, and you are good to go.

    2002 Toyota Highlander AC main control


    Before tearing out the AC control, does the temp knob feel loose or wobble alot more then the fan knob? If so pull the temp knob straight off. Look at the small nut around the shaft the knob came off of. Its common for them to come loose. Just tighten it up some and reinstall the knob. Your temp will work normally now.
    This fix is for the manual system not the auto ac system.

    Dash Control Unit Replacement


    You can save a LOT of money by fixing it yourself.

    All that is wrong with the knob are broken wires from the knob's PC board to the main PC board on the AC control.

    All you have to do is remove the AC main control, take it apart, and resolder the broken wires from the PC board with the knob on it, to the main AC pc board. There are 3 wires, any number could be broken.

    If you take it apart and solder the broken wires, this WILL fix your issue. Just make sure you put the wires back exactly where they go.

    A FIXYA rating (4 blue diamonds) would be most appreciated for my assistance.

    GE WBVH6240FWW control dial broken-how to remove?


    The control knob simply pulls off. I just looked at the other side of one..The knob connects to the main control board. To gain access you must remove the top of the washer. There will be screws at the rear of the machine to remove the top. Once removed, the control panel will be exposed for easy removal. Good Luck, Eric

    Yamaha RX-V800 volume knob on receiver not working.


    It sounds like the volume control pod has gone bad and needs replaced (The knob shaft connects to the pod main body and the inside of the volume pod is what controls the rate of volume,If the inside becomes worn ,broken or dirty the volume will become erratic) Replace volume pod ! ..You may try cleaning by taking off the volume knob and getting a can of pressure air and blowing the dust out!
    Please rate response!!

    Oven wont stay alight on new world 110G


    Hi - I had this problem too. I assume you are referring to the automatic oven, not the manual one. There is a small 'Licon' switch behind the control knob, which provides electrical power to the main gas valve in the oven. It is activated when the knob is turned on and is also connected to the timer clock, so that power is only provided when the timer reaches the cooking start time, or the timer is not being used. I had this replaced by an engineer from New World (at great expense!). Changing it seemed to be fairly straightforward - the engineer removed the two outermost knobs and unscrewed and removed the facia. The switch is behind the main oven knob - but where you might get one from, I don't know. And don't forget to switch off the power before you try to access the switch, as it is likely to be live.
    Good luck
