How do you remove the moulded Hidden Bake Element from the inside whirlpool ceramic range accubake system

first, remove power from the unit before doing ANYTHING! second, remove the back cover of the machine, this will expose another smaller panel with 4-6 screws in it running along the bottom edge across the back. after removing the screws you will have to gently BEND the panel down until you can see the wiring leading to the hidden bake element. cut the insulation covering the back of the element... be sure new element is placed in the exact location of the old one to avoid shorting the bake terminals to the metal cover, then reverse the removal process...

Wind top AE1900 AIO MS-6638. how to replace hard disk

To remove back leg: pull off round end caps where leg connects to back (pressure fit). Then remove black stickers covering screw holes at base of leg. Under stickers are 4 screws - remove and lift off leg assembly.

Remove back cover: remove 7 black screws from back (one hiding under warranty sticker). Lift back from bottom edge (pressure connections on top edge). Back cover will catch on cd/dvd tray door - bend slightly to get around.

Under back cover is metal cover. Remove screws from around edge holding back cover on (note that most screws you will see in pairs - only remove the one holding the metal cover, not the one holding the chassis). Lift off metal cover.

You should now see hdd. One screw holding in position - remove screw, slide out hdd (it will have a metal frame around it). HDD is a 2.5" laptop style.

Swap out hdd from its frame, then re-assemble.

Need to replace a baffle that broke off . MED9800TKo model baffle broke off insde on the dryer drum

Remove the top panel to access the outside of the drum where the baffle securing screws are found. Remove the three hex-head screws from the rear flange of the dryer's top cover the lift the rear of the cover and slide it back so the tabs clear the catches on the bracket and remove the cover from the unit.

Turn the drum until the baffle screws are on top then remove the screws and the baffles. Install the new baffles then the top cover. Make sure that the tabs slide under the bracket catches when you reinstall the top cover. The top cover screws have nylon flat washers on them. Be sure to use these screws when you reinstall the top cover.

How do i remove the back of washer to rplace the fill valve?

Most Maytag's let you remove the FRONT and the TOP, rather than the back--
This is better, since you don't have to pull the washer away from the wall, (unless you have to get to the water valve fixture...)

To remove the front,-- look down toward the bottom of the Front cover-- Do you see a ridge?-- and two screws hidden out of sight?, sort of just below that ridge?--
Can you remove these 2 screws?
This allows the cover to drop slightly, and now you can see the two catches that allow both the top and the front to be removed--
See the catches?-- they are about 1-1/2" wide-- They connect the top at the front, to the front panel. Inserting a putty knife, or thin bladed screw driver, allows you to push BACK on these catches, and the front then can be lifted up, and the front panel can be removed. Note the Top hinges on pivot points in the back.
This should give you good access to the water valves, and other controls.

Let us know how you make out--

I have a Lifebook C1020 The power connection point seems faulty - wiggle the plug at all and the power goes off - the battery is dead and won't recharge even if I jam the power lead in place in the socket....

No need for a hammer.
Remove the battery, CD drive etc. sometimes there are screws hidden in these areas. Some screws are hidden under plastic covers, remove these to reveal the screws.
On quite a few laptops I have dismantled the top half and bottom half of the case are held together by plastic catches. The best way to separate the case is to start at an opening eg, where the CD drive is located and gently pull apart until the catch releases, continue around this edge and then around the other edges to release/separate the case.

Want to remove cover of Krups Espressario XP7240

Yes it is tricky but easy once you know it. remove the bean container by pulling off the grind selector knob and removing the only screw.
Then remove the scute for the cleaning tablets. Then remove the two screws that were covered by the scute lid. Remove the water tank. Under the tank remove the two screws.
Then the trick where everyone seems to look for: The facade of aluminum can be moved off. Set the machine on the floor and pull hard upwards at the facade. This comes off (pull hard!) and four screw are uncovered. Remove them and pull then back housing of the machine (remove first the containers/drawers). Now the inner parts are freely accessible. You filter is the white valve connected to the three way valve (white plastic). You remove it by twisting it 15 degrees. Clean the inner parts (valve and spring) from coffee debris.

Changing a headight 2002 cavelier

Yeah, they're tricky. There are two more screws at the bottom corners of the headlight unit. They are hidden under the black plastic cover that surrounds the headlamp. You need to remove the cover (it prises off with some persuasion) and then you'll see the remaining bolds. With the black cover removed you'll also be able to see the bulb holder/socket.

Hope this helps.
