Little brass piece with the hole in it and the o ring fell out when I took the bowl off my 17.5briggs. I must have put it back in the wrong place when it back together. Does anyone know where it goes?


Is it a Nikki carb? The little brass piece is the main jet and goes in the long tube in the center of the plastic piece that holds the float and float needle. It is inserted from bottom side and seats in the top of the tube.

I need to rewind the spring and starter pull cord. I need to understand how all the parts fit together


I had the same problem. I had to take it apart and rewind it manually. To do this:
Step 1:
There are 4-bolts to remove on the orange plastic section the screw into the motor housing (one of them is hidden inside the orange plastic housing, you'll see an opening for it). There are also 3 screws in the black plastic exhaust housing that screw into the orange plastic housing, find those and remove.

Step 2:
Carefully remove the engine from the plastic housing. I didn't disconnect the throttle cable or the electric wires (points) just kind of worked around them.

Step 3:
The mechanism is kind of crappy. There are two black pieces with a spring in the middle, and a metal disc on the bottom with a ribbon coil on the underside of it. The top plastic piece is what turns the flywheel when you pull the cord. The spring in between connects the two plastic piece. This is probably what popped out. There is a piece sticking up on one end, which inserts into the hole in the top black plastic piece. If you remove the little guardrail things you can probably remove just that piece. KEEP TENSIONS ON THE PULL CORD. Once you remove that top black piece, it should start to recoil.

Step 4:
If it did recoil, put the spring back in the top plastic piece, and then put the plastic/spring combo back into the the bottom plastic piece, there is a little groove for the bottom of the spring to slide into. Then put the little guardrail screws back on. Make sure the big metal wire thing hasn't slipped down into the shaft of the weed whacker. That needs to go back into the motor, as it is what gets spun and in turn spins the strings. As you start to put the motor back in, you may have to pull on the pull cord a few times to get the flywheel and plastic piece to line up. Once you hear the motor start to catch, then you should be able to wiggle it back into place and put back all of the screws. Then give it a shot. If it pulls out again, you may have to drill a new hole into the top black plastic piece for that spring to slide into (this is the crappy design part).

Step 5:
If the pull cord didn't retract, you need to remove the other two pieces (lower black plastic piece and metal disc with ribbon). The metal ribbon has a nub on the outside that hooks onto a plastic piece in the bottom of the orange plastic housing. You'll need to wind it around once or twice to "charge" the ribbon, then wind the string back on the black plastic piece. The black piece should slide into the center of the metal disc and catch the inside of the ribbon. Once you get these two together, again, make sure the metal ribbon piece is wound once past normal and then you have to slide both parts together down into the housing catching the metal ribbon loop over the orange plastic nub. It's tricky, it took me a few tries. Once you get that you can try and test the pull cord, you'll see it pull out and feel it retract due to that metal ribbon. Then go back and do step 4, where you put the upper black plastic piece with spring back into place and replace the little metal guardrails.

This whole thing took a few tries, and the pull cord still gets stuck out. It's a major pain to say the least, but after the 5th time fixing it, you'll be a real pro.

Wires hanging in ice maker area


Look underneath the 2nd row from left in the ice tray there should be a white plastic piece that pops in and out from the bottom of the ice tray. Pop it off. There should be a piece of styrofoam on top of the piece you removed. the white wire runs along the bottom of the ice tray there may be little plastic hooks to place wire along the way. The sensor should fit right where the white piece of plastic and styrofoam you removed goes. Just place it there and pop that piece back in. It really doesn't attach to anything just lays there.

HP office jet feeder won't work when trying to fax


the little pieces of plastic are the sensor flags which is why it will not feed, those are required to let the machine know that the paper is present in the feeder. No flag no feed. Look at the plastic thing try to figure out where it goes in the feeder if you look close, you will see a spot where they go.

Printer rollers came off in paper jam and i cant get them back on


After a week of frustration trying to get the blasted thing back in--I could get the roller piece back in but not with the wire and could get the wire back on the little knob that holds it but that would prevent the roller piece from going in, I cut a notch in the white plastic above the spring hole so that I could, with very small needle nose pliers, hold the straight part of the sprint up while I put the roller piece in place. I then let the spring down through the notch I cut. It took a couple of tries but it all was pretty easy once the notch was cut.

Error Message


Thats an interlock switch, you can fold a piece of paper into a one inch long piece and then stick it in th "plug" this will over ride the switch, you probably have broken the plastic piece that is located on the cover that tells the printer that the cover is closed.

Calibration strip location


I got my answer from a very helpful scanner expert from a posting on the newsgroup comp.periphs.scanners. The plastic piece went near the end of the bezel that holds the glass above the starting position for the scanning run. Once I knew the idea, locating where it went was easy because of small indentations in the bezel the shape and size of the plastic piece. Thanks.

Cat jumped on top of printer and 2 pieces popped out


Hi there you will have to remove the top cover and you will be able to see where it goes as the roller in question is the paper eject roller. there are usually four screws under the top cover and also at the rear of the machine. The picture where the roller is resting on the top of the printer the roller is situated right under that also that white bushing holds the roller in at one end usually the left as you look at the machine from the front.
