Remove the toe kick you will see you broke a cable or spring. Hard to say without a model #. The cables have plastic ends that break off. You will need to replace the cables , do both sides even if only one is broke. They are cheap and easy to replace. If you need a diagram or illustration enter your model # at www.appliancehelponline.com You will also find videos and photo tutorials on disassembling.

Fix broken garage door torsion spring


I would call a residential door company. Those springs are not something I would recommend the average homeowner to mess with. Sorry!

I heard something snap and then noticed that the rear of the car drives very bumpy


Can you provide more info? Did you hit a bump? What do you mean by 'drives bumpy?' Does it ride rough, or does it go up and down a lot after you hit a bump, or something else? Can you further describe the snap you heard, and what was going on when you heard it and immediately afterward (e.g., driving 40 mph on a paved road, hit a pot hole, heard a loud 'breaking' sound as if something snapped/broke, and the ride of the car seemed to immediately change to being more harsh/rough)? Have you had any work done recently, such as tires changed or rotated, struts replaced, wheel alignment, or brakes replaced? Did anything else change (e.g., now when you hit a bump, you hear a new noise in the rear)? Were you carrying anything heavy in the trunk or back seat? I had a '99 Corolla for several years, and had zero problems other than a worn out driver's door handle and a couple of cracked windshields. Great car choice!

HOW TO OPEN HARRIS GARAGE DOOR WHEN SPRING SNAPS


In such a situation replace the spring assembly and shaft that it is attached to. Then determine how many winds you need to add to the windlass for spring tension to get the door to lift. Depending how the door track it is set up the outer wheels that take up the lift cable spool about 16 to 18 inches of cable per revolution. The spring gets tensioned by sticking a length of half inch/13 mm rod into 1 of the 4 tensioning holes of the windlass that are cast into the clamping end of the spring and turning tension onto the spring by way of that windlass to lift the door once the cables are attached to the door and then clamped into the wheels, once the approximately correct lift height has been cranked into the spring.One rod would need to be left in place to hold windlass firm until the set screw is tightened. Then you can put on a hard hat, unlock the door and lift slightly- the rod will fall out if you wound the spring the correct direction.and the door should rise again with ease.

Heard a loud snap rear window fell down, looks like rain, the window motor still works how do we get the door panel off.


GM rear window regulators have a cable which breaks causing this problem. get yourself a new regulator at a parts store and have a glass shop install it for you.

I heard a snap in the door as I pulled the button up to raise the driver side window. Now the window has slid all the way down into the door and will not raise back up. What might I have heard snap, and...


Hard to say..
The best wat to tell is take the inside door panel off to see what is going on.
Could be a brace snapped and the window fell off the track.. Or a part of the linkage broke..
Good luck..
Rate me good ;o)

Snapped door lock on hotpoint washer/dryer


What you need is a new door latch assy. To fit, remove all screws that hold the 2 halves of the door together, and prize the 2 halves apart, be careful the door glass does not fall to the floor and break.
Fit the new door latch, and reassemble door.
That should solve your problem.
The part is relatively inexpensive.
If you can;t obtain the part locally,then try:
www.hotpoint.co.uk
Plz rate my solution.
Thanks.

GE OVEN/RANGE INSIDE GLASS ON DOOR SHATTERED.


You will need a window pack, part number WB56T10152 which is not hard to replace. You should be able to order it right from GE, or an appliance repair firm can get it for you, often without extra shipping if they can combine it with other parts they need to order. Should set you back just over $100. You can remove your oven door to make it easier to work on. Use a little screwdriver to pull down the little square hole you will see on the top of the hinge opening on the frame of the oven on each side. That little metal part will lock the hinge open. Next, lift on the door and pull it toward you. The hinge actually stays with the door and lifts right out of the rectangular opening in the oven frame. Reverse procedure to reinstall repaired door.
