Persistently loose handle on a 20+yr old 9' fry pan

Persistently loose handle on a 20+yr old 9" fry pan. Is there a new set screw I need that won't become loose upon initial use following the tightening of the existing screw? Do I need to put some heat resistent wrap on the screw to have it hold it's place? The pan is a hazard to use at this point.

What has happened is the threaded hole the screw goes into had 'stripped out'. The best option is to fill the threaded hole with epoxy, and put the screw back in, tightening it well and letting the epoxy cure. The only alternative is to thread the hole to a larger size, and use a larger screw.

How do I replace the oil pan gasket?


That really depends on the make and model of your vehicle. I have had luck doing it without taking anything loose, using great stuff sealer in the cheez whiz can. Drain the oil, lift the vehicle, and take your time loosening the oil pan. Clean everything with brake parts cleaner and apply the cheez whiz all the way around. Put it all back together loosely, and let the sealer set up before tightening all the oil pan bolts to spec. Takes a lot of time and patience.

Please mark my answer as helpful, and feel free to post your model in the comments as well as details such as how bad your leak is, whether the gasket is any good or not will be found out when disassembly happens. If it's not all one piece, it needs a new one. replace-oil-pan-gasket-l0u5xrrbjmm23votbgnhzwek-1-0.jpg

Loose pan handle


Look at whe pan where the handle meets the pan. There may be a screw that takes either a flat blade or phillips screwdriver fitting. If it is there, simply screw the handle back in until it's tight and you are done.

GB2FHGXB01


Are you sure of the model number? I don't see a Whirlpool GB2FHGXB01 ; I do see a model GB2FHDXWB01.

For this model, there are several different door handles. One has a Philips head screw hidden under a trim piece. To expose the screw firmly push the trim away from the center of the handle. (This is for a standard Whirlpool fridge door handle.)

The French door style refrigerators have slightly different door handles. One uses Allen screws as set screws to secure the handle. (This screw needs a 3/32" Allen screw (hex key) and you can access it through a small hole in the underside of the handle on the loose side.) Be careful not to overtighten the screw or you may strip the threads and have to replace parts.

The other option has the handle mounted on brackets on the door. To access the bracket, grasp the freezer handle and pull it to the left. Then pull the handle away from the refrigerator.

For pictures of the handles, see pages 9 and 10 of the manual. It's available here: https://www.whirlpool.com/digitalassets/MLPDF/User%20Instructions%20-%20W10366204.pdf .

I hope this helps. If you do have the GB2FHGXB01, check if any of these directions help. Most refrigerators use one of the above door handle designs.

Diamondback rm 20 kids bike. Can you adjust the handlebars?


Yes, there is an allen screw on the top of the stem of the handle bars.....it may also be a bolt with a head on it that can be turned with a socket or cresent wrench.

Loosen the bolt 3 or 4 complete revolutions and then wiggle the bars back and forth from side to side while pulling up. Be careful not to completely remove the screw as the piece that it is connected to will fall off and you will have to remove the bars completely to fix.

Mitsubishi 10 yr old rear projection


Well, there is no lamp or simple part you can unplug and plug in. I have seen a couple of those sets with that symptom recently and it is caused by a faulty 9 volt regulator on the small signal board. This is not an easy part to change and the repair should absolutely be handled by a tech experienced in Mitsubishi projection sets.

Loose door handle


DON'T remove the cover yourself unless you fully undertand the SAFETY issues involved in working inside a microwave oven. A microwave oven is possibly THE MOST DANGEROUS common consumer product to service. Usually with these doors, the latching parts tend to loosen up at times, thus requiring some re-adjustment and tightening. Sometimes they get a bit warn and require to be replaced. The handle by itself about $40, apparently GE doesn't know how to make a door handle that will hold up for more than a year or so. I just bought a new door off of eBay for $20 + $20 shipping ... a deal compared to the $135 + tax and shipping that most of the web sites want! All you need is a phillips screwdriver and a 5/16" socket. To get to 3 screws that anchor the TOP hinge, simply remove the vent grill (open the door and remove the 2 white screws that hold it in place). To get to the 2 screws that anchor the BOTTOM hinge, simply remove the 6 screws that hold the grey bottom pan of the microwave in place. The pan will swivel down, remaining attached in the back panel. Once you've removed the 5 hinge screws, the door should pull pretty much straight out. Reverse the procedure with the new door, which should come with hinges attached. Could be that the place the spring sits in is a little broken, so theres no stop for the spring. open it up and see if there's anything you can do with it, try some epoxy putty maybe. Good luck
