Minn Kota Power Drive 40PD 12V. turns but the motor won't run.

I took the three screws out from the bottom of the foot control. The electrical connections look fine.There seems to me that some parts are missing. When you slide the speed control up or down it touches nor activates anything,same thing with the momentary/constant switch.What test can I run on the motor to be sure the motor is good.Then all I will need is a new foot controller.

Hello dtspins2. Your footswitch is stuck. Disconnect the DC. Remove the bottom of the foot control, check the wiring for insulation broken off and wires shorting out, and disconnect a wire(note color of wires) from switch, reconnect power to confirm motor don't run. Remove the switch and contact your local electrical supply store(may cost less) or marine store for replacement. Good Luck.

SOURCE: Minn Kota power drive trolling motor will not

There is a good chance that he control board is bad. This is a common problem with these units. I have replaced my control board twice.. When the control board goes out, the some function of the unit will not work correctly while other functions work fine. The first time mine went out, the prop motor would not work. The last time the board went out, the unit would only steer right.

SOURCE: ran aground on lake,now stuck on high speed,can't lower speed

My Minn Kota 55 powerdrive had the same problem except mine occurred while it was trailered in the yard. High speed only, everything else worked great. From what I could research the control module is a frequent problem. Took a chance and purchased a new control module and this cured the problem. Maybe this happening and running aground was just concidental.

How to unassemble and clean Janome sewing machine foot controller model 21371?


There are 4 screws on the bottom, 2 are under a rubber pad that can just as well be discarded. Be careful opening the 2 halves of the case, since the assembly is spring loaded. Note carefully the position of the wire bail as you open.
Your control is failing because the two resistive strips are dirty. Blow all the lint out the the case, and swab the two resistor strips with alcohol. Move the wiper arm so you can reach both ends of the strips.
To re-assemble, lay the bottom half on the table and place the plunger and wire bail in position. Then set the large ends of the springs over the round plastic projections in the plunger. Take the top half of the case (with all electrical parts) and engage the bottom end (away from the springs). Before pushing the top half closed, be sure that the small ends of the two springs fit around two screw heads.

How do i remove the front panel from the whirlpool accubake double oven


1. You need to pull the oven out a few inches to be able to access two screws on each side of the control panel. On my oven, I needed to open the lower oven and remove a screw from each side to allow a vertical cover piece to be removed. With those pieces removed, there were two screws on each side that went into the wood frame around the oven. I also had a screw on the bottom of the oven, but it didn't not look standard. With those screws removed, the oven pulled out fairly easy. Just need to pull out far enough so that the two screws on the control panel assembly are accessible.
2. Remove those two screws and the panel can slide out once a number of cables have been removed. I took a picture of the connections before removing so I was sure I would put them back correctly (see below). The ribbon cable comes off by raising the plastic piece on top of the connector.

I replaced my panel with a Sears part that had been rebuilt. I couldn't find any new parts anywhere. It's been three weeks and, so far, my oven is working fine.

My needed is too far back and hits the foot and cannot get to the fabric. I have tried everything I can think of and cannot get the needle forward. All the controls for side-ward motion etc are working...


Check if the needle is inserted into the holder correctly, and that its not bent. (may not be noticeable) Also examine the foot attaching area and see if the thumbscrew is tight(may just be screw). Most machines have the removeable foot for other foot types.
Do forgive me if I seem vague, Im giving you general information.

My DeLonghi DSM800 when running sometimes stop for a second and then starts up again. It also seems to speed up at times and almost sounds like it is skipping a gear or something. Any ideas.


I had the same problem and fixed it.
  1. I took it apart, unplug unit, remove the small black cover inside the stand portion, 1 screw. Underneath you will find four screws with a white plastic wire junction.
  2. Loosen two screws and remove the black and brown wires which connect to the control panel with the dial attached.
  3. Remove rear attachment cover, front top cover, and front delonghi cover.
  4. Remove top three screws where the blender attachment goes. Now remove the aluminum cover that covers the entire top.
  5. Slip belt off. Remove three screws with plastic washers that attach motor to chassis.
  6. Remove 2 torx screws that are located next to metal bar that keeps top half from swinging too far from bottom half.
  7. Now you can pull the motor out and the control panel with the dial. Remove the three slip on electrical connections on the control panel and reinstall. Carefully remove the two slip on electrical connections on the motor and reinstall.
  8. Re-assemble and test unit.
I thought I had a problem with the control panel or the motor, as it turns out the connections were the problem. Carefully removing them and reinstalling them solved the problem.

Front panel not fitting properly


HI, This model does not have screws at the bottom. There should be small tabs that the front locks on the front frame.
Slide the front panel bottom against the cabinet and then push the top of the front panel against the drum. I hope this helps you. Please let me know if I can assist you further.

GE double oven - bottem will not heat, top oven fine


I had a similar problem. Solved mine by resetting the manual reset thermal switch. The switch for the top oven is located behind the control panal which can be removed easily by taking out three screws then lifting up an leaning out. The switch has a red reset button, just push it in till it clicks.

For safety, SWITCH THE BREAKER OFF WHILE YOU DO THIS!!!

The lower oven switch is located behind the vent grill between the two ovens.

GE should be ashamed of hiding this feature-it isn't mentioned in the manual. I discovered it on a schematic hidden behind the control panal.

Good Luck, DVS1936

Whirlpool duet washer leaks from detergent drawer when filling with water


We just had the same problem. We took off the three screw on the back to remove the top panel on washer. From there we took the screws off the electric face plate on the front. Be careful, there is a screw located inside the door. You must open the door to get to the screw. Next we removed the bottom panel door and then the four screws to the mail metal panel on the front. Hold that panel because the rubber gasket is still connected. Then you will see a rubber hose directly under the drawer. Take the rubber hose off at the bottom nearest the drum. We found a sock that had wedged itself up and was causing a back up. After I cleared it, the washer works just fine.
