Problem with our new refrigator

We found that it has 2 wheel and 2 leveling screws, but we don't have any idea how can we lock the wheels. We have stone an kitchen's floor and the refrigator could move without real lock. Is it possible to lock the wheels?

I want to move my fridge but it's locked in place. How to unlock?


Hello Tina;



My name is Peter. I am a retired field service refrigeration technician.



You did not post your model number which is located on a label on the inside liner wall of your fresh food section.



First remove the bottom grill or toe plate in front of your refrigerator. This plastic piece is either held on with one screw at each end or pop out clips. If clips pull the plate straight out about 2" from each end. This plate is easier to remove with both doors open.



Refrigerator Leveling Screws: Most refrigerators have two leveling screws in the front, one on each side. These screws are for leveling the refrigerator from rolling on the wheels. Turn these screws counter clockwise.



Refrigerator Wheel Locks: Some refrigerators have a lever bar on the outside of the front wheels to lock the wheels in place.



Refrigerator Independent Wheel adjustment Screws: Some refrigerators have two hex head screws on each side. They raise and lower both the front and back wheels.

How do you lock the wheels on a maytag refrigerator


Hello Joyce;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service technician.

You did not give me a model number so I am not sure what you have.
Remove the front bottom grill. Some grills have clips 1 on each end that you just pull to remove. Others have a screw on each end to remove.
1.) Some units have a locking bar on the outside of the front wheels. Turn this bar to lock.
2.) Some units have bars on each side with square heads. There are 2 bars on each side. One for the front wheel and one for the back wheel. You need a box wrench or ratchet. Clockwise raises the wheels and counter clockwise lowers the wheels.
3.) All units have leveling screws in the front. Turn the jack screws clockwise to bring them down. If you did not receive a special wrench with the unit, you will need either a pair of channel locks or another tool when the jack screws touch the floor. Turn the jack bolts 1/2 to 1 full turn. This will secure the refrigerator in your desired position.
I do not recommend 3.) unless your floor is pitched and your refrigerator tends to move. The leveling jack may leave impressions in you kitchen floor. Generally, just the heavy physical weight of your unit keeps the refrigerator in place.

Can the front wheels be locked


I just Fixed this problem today with the bike Radio Flyer Trike 4 in 1. I just opened the red adjustable hub, and found one spring detached, and both springs that control the 2-pawl system of ratchet system very loose. I tensioned both springs but it worked for one day only. Called customer service, provided all the necessary information and they promised a new front wheel.
In 3 business days a received, a brand new front wheel with pedals and fork. The pedals are fixed on wheel, and is the best solution from radio Flyer for a Kid who is grown with the bike from 18 months to 36 month, and now at age 3 rides the lovely Radio Flyer like a dare devil. Thank you Radio Flyer.
Having a strong mechanical background, I opened system, both sides of the wheel. To dissemble and repair, I had to remove one pedal on the side of the big white hub. What I found inside was a Ratchet wheel, with rounded teeth, and 2 Pawls totally worn out.
I fixed drilling 4 holes all the way through metallic plate, ratchet wheel, and the hub of the wheel. Inside the hub cavity, I used 4 washers and nuts to secure tight all 4, 3/32 stainless steel screws.
My grandson is very happy and more confident, because now he can move the bike forward, and backwards, and the most important, now he can use the pedals of the front wheel to stop the bike. Which it was a safety flaw by original design of this bike, but solved now by Radio Flyer. The new wheel Red Hub has 2 Positions. 1 PULL TO COAST. 2 PUSH TO PEDAL.

Leveller


Check the wheels as they may either turn to go up and down or there may be a screw that does this adjustment. Place a level on top of unit. Get one direction level then do the other. May only have to adjust one wheel/leg to get unit level.

Replacing cord on polaris 250 ATV ??


CORD? THE ONE TO START THE ENGINE.
Park the Polaris ATV on level ground in an area with plenty of light. Allow the engine to cool if it is warm so that you don't burn yourself.Remove the four Phillips head screws from the corners of the metal cover that the cord is coming out of using the screwdriver. Pull the metal cover off the engine. Unwrap the cord from around the turn wheel completely.Spin the turn wheel using your hand until the nut securing the cord is at the top of the wheel facing you. Grab the metal stem on the cord with the pliers. Loosen and remove the nut using the box wrench. Hold the stem to keep the cord from turning as you loosen the nut.Pull the cord off the turn wheel and through the hole on the metal cover. Keep the nut just in case the new cord did not come with one. Insert the metal stem on the new cord into the hole on the metal cover. Insert the stem into the hole on the turn wheel.Tighten the nut onto the stem the opposite way than you removed it. Spin the turn wheel counterclockwise until you hear the spring lock into place. Wrap the new cord around the turn wheel. Make sure that the cord does not overlap itself. Replace the metal cover to the engine. Replace and tighten the screws to secure the cover to your Polaris's engine.

    I borrowed my friend's Dremel to cut a few screws...originally she had the EZ Lock Cutting Wheel but it is too big so the smallest they make is not with the EZ Lock head so I was told to get Dremel 420...


    I don't know what the numbers are, but the little abrasive cut-off wheels are held on with a mandrel type bit and a screw. Make sure you get the right size wheel and the right size mandrel, they make a couple different sizes, you can't fit the small wheels on the bigger screw. Anyway, I use my cut-off wheels all the time, usually to get stubborn screws out by cutting a slot in the head and turning it out with a flat blade screw driver. The wheels will cut anything, most people scoff when I say that, but it is true, they will cut anything.

    How do I cange Trackmaster Percy's battery


    In the early model trains - Just by the middle wheel there are plastic brackets that lock the top in to open squeeze on both sides above the wheels to move the brackets in and pull the top up - This will open the top and then you can replace the battery Note my wife helped me to figure this out as I took all the screws out as well

    Need to replace wheels on sons power wheels kawasaki brute force fisher price car. i have the wheels but have no idea how to remove old ones and put new ones on. thanks


    I just replaced the wheels on the red Fisher Price Kawasaki Brute Force. First use a screw driver to pop off the grey middle nut cover. Then pull of the locking nut with black cap that is under the grey cover you just removed.

    Once that is removed the wheel comes right off. There are 4 phillips screws holding the hubs together. Unscrew those and the hubs separate into to pieces (one on each side of the wheel).
    Simply place the hubs into the replacement wheels and screw back together. Slide the new wheel on (make sure the washer is still on the rear side of axel).

    My replacement wheels actually came with the black replacement locking nuts taped to them. Hammer the replacement locking back on the alex, pop the grey hub cover back on and you are done.

    If you are missing the locking nuts, take one of the originals you removed with you to the hardware store and you should have no problem getting them. - MTRAGE

    Maclaren quest pushchair.


    Ok, I will try to do this step by step.
    1. Place flat screw driver under hub cap and pry off (these we will reuse later).
    2. Using diagonal pliers, cut star locks from axle, you should have received new one from Maclaren when you got the wheels, if not you will need to get those.
    3.Repeat this process for each wheel.
    4. Take off the old wheels and put the new ones on. Put on the new star locks (I use a small hammer), put the hub caps back on and viola, new Mac wheels.

    I need help to level my kitchenaid fridge, and the owner manaul does not show this.


    leveling refrigs, can be abit tricky, depending on level of floor especially, for the most part only the front 2 legs/wheels are going to be adjustable, the rears if need be will have to be chocked with wood shims . as a repairman for nearly 20years, i rarely "level" refrigs, , for the reason of who knows if the cabinets are level, or how level the floor is, i in turn make the refrig appear level and make sure its stable when the doors are opened and closed. not essential for level (shloud be close butno need to be perfect, id much rather a refrig tht looks good and doenst shake when door is closed, rathe then tryin to get it perfectly level and then seeing a 2 inch gap at top of cabint and flush against the bottom.
