Makita 6337D cordless drill problem

Hi there-

I have a drill, a little over a year old (no more warranty), that I haven't used more that about 3 or 4 times. All of a sudden, it stops working. When I pull the trigger, it seems like the drill is snagged on something and there is a distinct buzzing noise just above my left thumb, when holding it. i made sure and recharged the batteries, but the same thing happened. Any ideas? Thanks.

(sorry, no applicable product category)

    I was using the drill and suddenly the chuck quick turning.

    The motor is turning when I pull the triggger, but the chuck is free.

    If ther is no torque the chuck turns a little when running, but if you grab it the motor runs just as fast but the chuck stops. could the chuck have become disengaged somehow?

    The drill still works but the gear box slips when any pressure is applied. Will not buy another makita product.

I have a 6337D makita cordless and the gear box slips and grinds when very little pressure is applied. I took the gear box apart and it is all plastic. I think I will invest the $50.00 dollars into a better drill instead of a new plastic part.

It is possible that the batteries are no longer good. They may need to be changed. These batteries do reach a stage where they no longer hold charge.

On rare occasions I have seen the gear box jam or the motor bearings go defective.

Lost the cord for a Toastess 551 Waffle iron 700 watts. Where could I find one?

You can usually find replacement parts for vintage appliances on eBay using the make and model for your search. If none are currently listed, you can save the search so eBay will contact you via email when one gets listed.

Permanently fix the waffle maker when it breaks in the back swivel which makes...

Carefully drill a tiny hole in the center of the back plastic part.  Then drill a 1/4 inch hold centered on the first drill hole.  Put a 1/4/ threaded rod through the hole with a locking bolt on each side. But extra threaded bolt with a hacksaw.  Tighten bolts to just touch plastic.  See picture attached for solution.  When drilling hold be careful not to tough the plastic coated wire bundle.

How to replace fuse in a waring pro waffle maker

The fuse is inside, clamped to the bottom iron.

Swing the top open. There are 4 small screws, two metric M3 flatheads in the front pivot, two self tapping near the hinge, that hold the bottom iron in place.

Often the M3 screws will become fused to the captive nuts. Using the correct size cross-point screwdriver, position it in one of the pivot end screws, and while holding it firmly directly in line with the screw, give the screwdriver a sharp tap on the end of the handle, as if it were a chisel. Repeat with the other front pivot screw.

If the screw does not unscrew with a minimum of force, repeat the tapping procedure. If this does not work, use a 1/8" metal bit to drill through the screw heads. Remove the rear screws.

There is a spring-loaded pin running through the front pivot halves. Press it in and carefully swing the bottom grid upward. Turn the iron upside down. At the rear of the irons, you'll see where the wires enter from the rear support. Find the metal clip holding down a piece of white rubbery tubing. Remove the screw and clip. The temperature-limiting fusible link is inside the tubing.

Push the tubing toward one side until the wire crimp is seen. On the fuse side of each crimp,AS CLOSE AS POSSIBLE TO THE CRIMP, clip the lead. Remove the tubing and clip the other lead.

Take two uninsulated crimp-style spade lugs for 20 ga wire, and clip off the spade ends. The crimp ends will be your new crimp connector.

From the iron's leds, remove the old crimps. Strip just enough jacket for the exposed wire ends to match the length of the new crimp connectors.

Take the stripped lead that is toward the iron's terminal, insert into a crimp connector. Insert one end of the new fuse in the other end so the overlapping leads each just reach the opposite end of the connector. Crimp in place.

Slide the tubing over the fuse and push it toward the iron. (The loom tubing on the other wires will compress to permit this).

Connect the other end of the new fuse to the remaining stripped wire with the second crimp connector.

If you had to drill out the M3 screws (I did), use a vice grip wrench to grasp the remaining shaft with as little compression as possible and remove. The threads of the captive nuts should be ok. Replace the screws with M3 flat head crosshead screws and antiseize compound of the threads.

1. The most common reason for thermal fuse failure is running the iron empty with the top raised.
2. I got replacement fuses via ebay 4/$2, M3 screws at Ace Hardware @$0.19.
3. All the wires inside the iron are insulated with high temperature silicone or non-melting jackets. Stripping requires an electricians stripper/crimper with a 20-22 ga cutter. More force is needed to strip these wires than you might expect. You'll find it much easier if you hold the wire being stripped with a pliers while stripping.

Broken leg on Villaware pizzelle maker

You might try putting a screw of about the length of the original leg into the underside of the casing (drill it a little with a power-drill or a Dremel, then carefully insert the screw with a handheld screwdriver, testing it at intervals to make sure it's the length of the leg,) and then cover the screw in some Sugru. should be able to sell you a few packets of the stuff; it's heat-resistant, very strong, and I've used it in several kitchen-gadget fixes.

Waffles sticking to plate. Unit over 10 years old.

It probably needs to be carefully and thoroughly cleaned with a gently detergent to remove any build-up that is preventing the release of the waffles. If the teflon coating is damaged it will have to be replaced or revert to the use of a release spray when using the unit.

Nordic ware Belgiam Waffler maker

This is how I use the nordic ware...

1.Heat pan on medium heat on one side until temp gauge is in the middle. Dont turn pan at all when pre-heating
2. Open pan and coat bottom with a little butter.
3. Flip pan over and add butter to bottom side that has no butter.
4. Add batter quickly so butter doent burn. Add semi-thick batter in pan and only let batter run so there is about 1 inch of space left on the edge.(This space will fill with batter when you close the cover)
5. Temperature gauge should stay near the middle at all times.
6. Do not open the pan to check the batter waffle color or your crispy waffle will turn soft
7. Let waffle cook on first side until the steam that comes out from the side slows down to about half of the amount of steam that came out when battle was first put in. (Should be about 2 minutes)
8. Turn waffle pan over and DON’T open the pan.(you haven’t opened the pan once to look)

9. Let cook until steam reduces (Takes about 2 minutes)
10. Keep an eye on the temp gauge
11.Remember the first waffle always takes longer to cook than the second and third waffle.
12. If you have the urge to open the pan. Open the cover slowly. If it doesn’t open up easily then it is still rare and wait one minute to open. If you need to look, you should only open the pan after you turned it over. Once you open the pan, leave it open. If you close it the cripy top will turn soft.
13. Remember trial and error

Mine too

I personnally just went through this.

If it is less than one year old, and you have the receipt, go to the waring site, and look up the nearest dealer for repair and bring it to them. They should be able to contact waring for you and get you a replacement.

My replacement had a silver body virsus the original black body. The shop told me they have yet had a customer repeat of this problem.

Hi this is Mark again. I received the thermal fuse and installed it yesterday. The waffle iron works great. To repair the waffle maker I removed the four screws on the lower griddle and removed the round stainless cover. I next snipped off the old fuse and purchased metal wire connectors from an auto parts store. It was actually an in line wire connector (tubular) and a removed the plastic outer shell. I stripped the ends of the black wire that the fuse was connected to and crimped the thermal fuse to the black wire. To make sure it wouldn't separate I soldered the connectors. I made sure that the white silicon tube was still in place during the process and that none of the wire was exposed. If the wires touch metal you will have a short. I then reassembled and plugged it in. Volia! Back in action and waffles for breakfast. It appears on my unit that the black wire may have grounded out and that is why the fuse blew. I don't know for sure. To be safe, I will be cooking my waffles on 3 instead of 3.5. I would have to say that either you need to be fairly handy or have a friend help you and buy them a beer.
