Question about Sangean DT300VW AM/FM/Weather/TV Radio

1 Answer

My Earth Orbiter has a big problem. The band selector knob is stripped. When it got to the point where it would no longer turn the selector, some dummy (yours truly) substituted a straight blade screw driver bit and/or a small pair of needle nose pliers to do the job. Well, guess what? Half of the split pin over which the knob slips (and sits) couldn't take the stress of the turning and broke off. I'm stuck. Any suggestions (other than hara kiri) appreciated. How 'bout a "universal" knob and some JB Weld? JHS

Bosch rotary hammer will not rotate


Need more information to accurately help you - model#.
The easiest thing to check is possibly a broken selector knob - most Bosch selectors come off by pushing the red button in further than normal & turning clockwise (some however are counter-clockwise) further than it normally goes - knob will pull straight out. Inspect the pin on the knob & the receiver in the tool. If these appear OK you could be looking at a bad clutch gear or stripped crown gear depending on the model

I have a Toyota RS2000 the stitch selection knob cracked I have ordered a new one which I have received but the knob will not tighten onto the switch selection shaft because metal strip is missing inside...


I have the same problem. I found the little metal piece down inside the machine. Shake the machine and see if you hear a little rattle. It might be that little metal piece. Bad design on that selector knob, for sure.

Selector switch will not change for defrost, floor, or panel no matter what the dial is set on. Checked the gates behind the dash and they all seem to move. any ideas?


remove the selector knob and look for a crack in the sleeve that slides down on the switch it is known to be a problem this vehicle has electric blend door actuators when you change dial do you hear a clicking sound if so the gears are stripped in one of the actuators if not while you have knob off of the selector switch take a pair of needle nose pliers and turn switch if it changes it,s the knob if not then could be the selector switch

What holds on the pads


There should be a black plastic disc that fits tight over that white one. The black disc has lots of little spikes to engage with the pads.

Inspiration 4205 stitch length won't change


Are you certain that the pattern selector is set for straight stitch and not buttonhole?

Turn the handwheel so that the needle is up and the take-up lever is in it's highest position. Then turn the pattern selector knob through all of the patterns back and forth a few times. Finally, select straight stitch and see if the length works. If not, need to take it to a repair person to determine the course of action.

WHDSR209DWW on/off button will not engage to spin the cycle selector dial


The cycle selector is not engaged onto the timer shaft. Need to remove the on/off knob by removing the plastic "U" clip. Remove the cycle selctor knob and check that the steel spring clip on the selector is fully seated. Re-install the cycle selector onto the timer shaft aligning the selector key with the with tthe notch on the timer shaft. Re-install the on/off knob.

The cycle selector and on/off combination is a poor design. Users press the on/off knob in and turn clockwise to set the wash cycle. If you're not gentle this action wears the teeth on the timer shaft and the user has to press harder and harder to set the wash cycle. This pressing causes the cycle selector to be pushed off the timer shaft and you can no longer operate the machine.

VERY IMPORTANT:
Stop using the on/off knob to set the wash cycle. Press on the cycle selector to set the wash cycle. Use the on/off knob only for starting or stopping the machine. Don't press or pull too hard on the on/off knob or you will wind up pushing the cycle selector off the timer shaft.

I CANT HERE OR PUT OUT I NDONT KNOW WERE THE NOBS SHOULD BE


Big Knob settings from left to right...
First knobset...inner turn "volume" fully clockwise
... outer "squelch" fully counterclockwise
Second knobset...both inner and outer knobs fully clockwise
Third knob...chose which mode you want to use...Am or Fm (If your radio has been modified to TX/RX CB frequencies, chose AM)
Fourth knob...chose your band (If your radio has been modified to TX/RX CB frequencies, chose band D/A)
The only other knob that is important is the high/low power switch. It selects the band from the pair chosen by the band knob. I don't know if band D corresponds to high or low, so try both settings until one works.

If you can't TX or RX with these settings either there is no one talking at that time or your radio, antenna, or cable might be defective. You should get a copy of the owners manual to fully learn how to chose bands and adjust the settings. I've given you a starting point that should work but may not be optimum for all conditions.
