How do I reassemble On/Off switch?

I had a bad jam in the blades. I took apart cleared jam OK. My problem is the on/off switch came apart from the interior of the lid. Now I have two very tiny clips shaped like a W or M that are integral to the switch but I dont know how they go back together. I blamed the dog for bumping the table I was working on. Any ideas?

The actual switch will not fall apart. There is a black part that is integral with the switch itself. This is about 1/4" to 3/8" wide, and can only be seen from inside the unit. Then there is a plastic piece that is part of the top shell. The hole in the plastic piece has to fit over the black part of the switch, so when the plastic piece is moved, the switch on the inside of the unit will move with it. SO, center both parts, and put them together. If you actually took the switch itself apart, you would have needed a soldering iron, and there would be no purpose for doing this.

IT ONLY DOES THE WASH MODE THEN IT STOPS. DOES NOT RINSE OR DRAIN WATER. I TOOK IT OUTSIDE AND THE WATER DRAINED THROUGH THE DRAIN HOSE. BOTH HOSES GOING TO PUMP ARE CLEAR. ANY SOLUTIONS????


Eddie,
Is this by chance a Whirlpool or Kenmore washer? If so, a frequent problem is the lid switch. It can either have a loose lid which allows the plunger that activates the switch, miss the switch when you close the lid, or you might have a bad switch. One of the things that I have done for several customers is to repair the switch with a plastic zip tie. What happens occasionally is that the switch will split along the seam where it is glued together and when the lid closes, the plunger pushes the two halves of the switch apart and does not make contact. Putting a zip tie around that switch will eliminate that problem and possibly fix your problem. The washer may think that your lid is still up and that could be why it does not complete the cycle. Hope this helps!

What is "fuser door open"


Fuser Door Open is the message on the display when it's powered on. I took the back apart, removed the fuser, looked all over. I couldn't see any kind of sensor, optical or mechanical that makes when the door is closed. There's an access plate with a blue latch below the fuser that makes an optical sensor and a mechanical sensor, but that seemed to be OK. It didn't seem like something that would be called a fuser door. So, I pushed on it where it made the mechanical switch and the printer hummed to life and the message went away. I took the fuser out and examined it. The metal brackets where the pivot parts were, seemed a little bent. I straightened them out, stuck it back in and that fixed it.

Kenmore washer model 110 26712690 fills up with water and does nothing. wife said she smelt something burning. I thought maybe a belt but when I took it apart I didnt see any belts.


no belts in a kenmore,if it filled with water and stopped most likely you have a bad lid switch.close the lid,open it up a few inches and close it down a few times,if you don't hear a clicking sound every time you open and close it the lid switch is bad.,if you already have it apart,you can jump it out,the white harness you disconnected next to the right clip is the lid switch harness,stick a wire in the two outside holes,put it on spin and pull the timer out,it will run.the model number you sent isn't correct,i was gonna give you the part number and price of the switch,just give it to your parts store and they will sell you the correct part.

I cleared the jam and took it apart to make sure but it still says clear original jam. could the sensor be bad or dirty? if so where is it?


It definitely could be the sensor. The Paper sensor flag may be broken or not activating the switch. Or the switch itself maybe bad. You can physically test the Paper sensor flag
by moving it and listening for the click sound when it activates the switch. And You can ohm out the switch to see if it working. Look at the paper in the tray, to find the switch follow a line about 3 inches from the right edge of the paper. It is to the side of the roller/gear on the right side.

Kenmoore washer , model 2262210 serial cl4434210, type111 . will not spin and does not drain . what are the possible problems . please help . thanks . T.W.N. at [email protected]


if this is a traditional top load washer, then your lid switch might be bad. Usually when this happens, your washer will start fine. Your put it for a normal wash, it does its thing, lets in water, and agitate and stuff, but when it goes to the spin cycle. it stays in that cycle and wont advance. Leaving you with a tub full of water. Like i said if its a traditional top load kenmore, the lid switch is the the gray looking part when you open your lid. when you open your lid, youll see two screws holding it. But you have to take the whole shell of the waher to get to it....take 2 screws on the back corners of the counsel, then flip the counsel up. Locate to metal clips and pop them put with screwdriver. unclip the lid switch connector located by the clear hose that runs down. then lift and pull the whole shell towards your and acess the switch from underneath. put back together how you took it apart.( MAKE SURE THE CLEAR HOSE THAT RUNS FROM THE TOP COUNSEL TO THE TUB DONT GET PINCHED BECAUSE YOUR WASHER WILL OVERFLOW WITH WATER) like i said if its a tradidonal top load kenmore....hope this helps

try saturating left over paper with shredder oil and let sit for 4-5 hours or more this should soften paper enough to remove easier although it may be a little messy

The auto switch is stuck. Feed more paper in it to clear it, and kick once for me. The shredder has a paper jam. You can try 3 or more sheets at one time to clear it. Also try 'paper shred oil'. You can buy it at Office Depot or Office Max.
