Actually a Scanoe with a square hole in it!!

I have an old Coleman Scanoe (canoe)that we accidentally melted a square hole in from the exhaust from the fireplace vent at side of house.

Is there anybody that can patch and repair this for us.

We are located in Hamilton, Ontario

    Does the Canoe Wash clothes as well???


1 Answer

Ha Ha! Very funny :)
Maybe, I've never tried it.

Is suppose with the gaping hole, it will allow the water in, so if Iput the clothes in the canoe, it will lilkely wash a little.

All kidding aside, since you know Coleman, I just wondered if you would have a referral to someone out this way

What should be done with my washer, it has a burnt, melted draining hose that leaks along the electrical wires to the floor. A safety hazard?

Water and electricity aren't friends with each other so, yes this IS seriously dangerous. Get it looked at professionally but my guess is it is beyond economical repair

Conditioner rise on the waa24270gb

Pull the drawer all the way out (pull out until you get restriction, then press on the middle, just above where it says 'MAX' for fab cond and this will allow the drawer to come out fully)
Where you press to get it out, pull this up and you will see a fixed cylinder in the drawer and a larger cylinder attached to the pivoted portion, ensure the drawer is clean of detergent and fabric conditioner residue, particularly inside the larger cylinder, use an old toothbrush (I have an old washed clean mascara brush that perfect for the small crevices etc). When you put the drawer back together the large cylinder sits over the small one and the top should clip in position via two small plastic tags.
Whilst the drawer is out, look into the machine and up into the top of the dispenser housing. On the left and right you will see several smalls hole, in the centre above where the fabric conditioner section is you will see four small square holes, this is where the water enters to dispense the conditioner, if it is particularly grubby in here use a scourer or toothbrush to give it a clean. Once it is clean you need to get a cable tie and feed it through all four square holes until you see it appear at the back of the dispenser housing, give it a little wiggle and pull it back out.
Replaced the drawer, add a small amount of conditioner to test and run on a rinse/spin or freshen up cycle- should be 18-22mins on display. Check the conditioner has been dispensed. Hopefully, this should sort it. Let me now if you need any further help.

How do I remove old element from Hoover HNL 6146? Can I lever it out with a screw driver or is there a nut/fixing inside the drum?

As far as I can see from the pictures of the element I have looked at here:

This looks like a fairly standard element. Unfortunately, the picture doesn't quite show me what I want to look at, which is what's insude the little square hole beneath the 3 spade connectors. What should be there is a single nut, of about 8mm.

The element is held in place by sandwiching a rubber seal between the back plate of the element that is inside the machine and the front plate that had the brown moulding with the 3 spaded on it. The single 8mm nut that you should see inside the square hole is the nut that draws the 2 plates together and squashes the rubber seal outwards, jamming it in the recess it fits in. If you loosen the nut right off, it will release pressure on the seal and allow it to shrink back, then with a little tugging and wiggling you should be able to pull the element free from its recess.

I am attempting to remove the top portion of the agitator on my model 110.28924790 Kenmore washer to replace the dog agits. I successfully removed the fabric softener piece and popped off the underlying...

You get a 3/4 drive extension and rachet and unscrew that nut (righty tighty lefty loosey) and the top portion lifts right off. It is actually easier than the old style.

This is a Speck swimming pool 1.5kw pump I need to replace the motor stator bearings but don't know how to take the pump impeller off

This is the most popular pump frame. The motor will actually have a square flange as an integral part of the motor (not the pump) on the front of the motor with 4 holes (one hole in each corner of the flange). The pump body will be secured to this square flange with 4 bolts, which are outside the round barrel of the motor. Caution: Make certain the square flange is part of the motor; not the pump body. Many pumps are square and may appear to be part of the motor. Removing the motor from the pump will allow you to make certain how the pump is fastened to the motor. How the pump is fastened to the motor determines the basic type of frame.
Note: Also, some 48Y frame motors are actually thru-bolt style; therefore, check the mounting bolts to make certain they are not thru-bolt style as described below.
Not a square flange on your motor? If you do not see a square flange as described above for the square frame motor, then you have a pump body, which mounts to the motor with 4 bolts accessible inside the pump case. This non-square frame will be a thru-bolt style frame, 56J frame, or 56C frame. How to determine if you have a 56J or 56C frame: The pump body mounts to the face of the motor with 4 bolts just inside the circumference of the motor barrel. To see these mounting bolts, you must take apart the pump body and look inside the pump. The bolts will be fastened into the face of the motor with threaded holes. 56J frame: If your pump body mounts into the face of the motor as described in the previous paragraph, and the impeller is threaded onto the motor shaft, then you have a 56J frame. Additionally, the impeller may be secured with a small screw, which is threaded into the center of the motor shaft. If the outside of the shaft is not threaded, maybe you have a 56C frame. 56C frame: If your motor has a shaft with a key-way (small metal key slides into a groove machined along the length of the motor shaft), then it is a 56C frame. These are very rare in today's pumps. If your pump is 20 years old or older, it may have a keyed shaft (56C), but even then is unlikely. The keyed shaft may also have an internal tapped thread to help hold the impeller once it slides over the key-way. Thru-bolt style frame: The motor mounting bolts are the key with this style of motor. Like the name implies, if the pump fastens with nuts to the 4 bolts, which pass all the way thru the motor, then you have a thru-bolt frame. These extremely long bolts (8 inches or longer) will go through the motor. These motors are popular on spas and above ground swimming pool pumps. NOTE: Sometimes these motors are also labeled 48Y frames, but they are not square flanged 48Y frames. Once you determine the frame, click on the link and view some motors to help determine horse power by analyzing the amperage comparisons.

Ok, well as long as you get a "Glue" that actually "Melts" into, the existing material, much like a water bed glue/sealer, you will be OK, for a bit.

Agitator wont work, quiet hum and smell

Often something works it's way into the pump and makes a clicking or scraping noise. Another bad spot on this washer is the snubber ring that sits between the base and the drive unit.
1) Whirlpool, Inglis, (some) Kenmore washer..... Remove the agitator cap, some caps unscrew and some will just pull off. Look for a bolt and remove the bolt, lift up on the agitator...picture1picture2.
(2) Whirlpool, Inglis, (some) Kenmore washer.....Remove the agitator cap, some caps unscrew and some will just pull off. Look for a plastic bolt and remove the bolt, the plastic bold will have a square in the middle that the square end of the shaft of an socket extension ( or a very large flat screw driver ) will fit into the square hole to unscrew the plastic nut off...remove the upper 1/2 of the agitator....remove thebolt holding down the bottom 1/2 of the agitator, lift up on the agitator.

Drainage filter was blocked, hole melted in drum!

Hi, I used JB Weld (an epoxy type paste available from a DIY store) to mend several small holes in the drum on my washing machine. May be worth trying if the holes are not too big even if its only a temporary measure to check whether the machine still works OK before deciding if you want to buy a new drum.

Fisher and Paykel DG09 dryer

Wow, sounds like a major safety issue and possible fire hazzard to me. Try contacting the manufacturer of your unit and do it before the warranty runs out so you have full warranty benefits. Good luck.
