Where is the air and heat blend motor on a 2000 dodge dakota?


Hi Sharon, I'm glad to help. Your 2000 year doesn't have a motor for the temp door. It operated by a cable running from the control head to the temp door and you work it manually. If you can't control the temperature from hot to cold, sometimes the cable come off or breaks. Here how you can see the cable to see if its working. Remove the radio and right behind it you will see the cable attached to the door, while watching it move the temp lever from hot to cold and watch it. If it is moving then its most likely out of ajustment. If it is not moving, then you'll need a new cable. Just in case it is moving, I'm attaching the instruction on how to adjust it below. Hope this helps and have an awesome day Sharon!



TEMPERATURE CONTROL CABLE

Any time the heater-A/C control or the temperature control cable are removed and/or replaced, the following procedure must be performed.
  1. The temperature control cable housing and core must be installed at both the heater-A/C control and the heater-A/C housing ends, and the heater-A/C control must be installed in the instrument panel. See Heater-A/C Control and Temperature Control Cable in the Removal and Installation section of this group for the procedures.
  2. Rotate the temperature control knob on the heater-A/C control so that the knob pointer is in the 12 o'clock position.
  3. Pull the temperature control knob straight out from the heater-A/C control base until the perimeter of the knob (not the knob pointer) protrudes about 6 millimeters (0.25 inch) from the face of the control base.
  4. Rotate the temperature control knob to the 1 o'clock position. Push in on the knob slightly and continue rotating the knob to its full clockwise stop. The knob pointer should be aimed at a position about 8 millimeters (0.315 inch) beyond the end of the graduated red strobe temperature control graphic on the face of the heater-A/C control base. If the knob is not pointed to the correct position, go back to Step 2 and repeat the adjustment procedure.
  5. Rotate the temperature control knob counterclockwise until the knob pointer is in the 12 o'clock position again.
  6. Push the temperature control knob straight in towards the heater-A/C control base until the perimeter of the knob (not the knob pointer) is flush with the face of the heater-A/C control base.
  7. Rotate the knob to its full clockwise stop again. The knob pointer should be aimed at the end of the graduated red strobe temperature control graphic on the face of the heater-A/C control base. If OK, go to Step 8. If not OK, go back to Step 2.
  8. Rotate the knob to its full counterclockwise stop and release the knob. If the knob springs back from the counterclockwise stop, the self-adjuster clip that secures the temperature control cable to the blend-air door lever is improperly installed. See Temperature Control Cable in the Removal and Installation section of this group for the procedures. If the knob does not spring back, the temperature control cable adjustment is complete.

The knob broke off. How do I fix it?


well if you broke only the knob, then thats an easy fix.. just obtain part # 154535903 - KNOB and replace.
however if you broke the shaft off inside the knob you will need to procure part # 154668901 - CONTROL MODULE
remove power from the dishwasher and remove the screws holding the inner door panel to the door.
once that is removed you should see the control assembly and related wire harness that needs to be disconnected and screws that need to be removed, etc..
hope that helps,
best of luck,
ttfn

Removal of the washer control knob


Anyway the model I got on your problem says it is a Refrigerator...but I can help you to remove the Knob on a washer....first you may have to place a flat head screwdriver in between the knob base and the control panel ..(You may want to place a piece of cloth against the control panel to prevent scratching the surface of same)..slowly force the screwdriver further under the knob alternating form side to side gently lifting up as you do.....(all of this is is premised on the the notion that there is no set screw in view anywhere on the knob)....also most all washer knobs are held in place on the shaft with a little spring loaded retainer that pushes out against the inside of the knob so it does not easily come off.

Hope this helps...please rate me...the Fang

How to remove the washer cycle selection/start-stop knob on a Whilpool Heavy Duty Thin Twin stacked washer dryer


I believe the selector knob on a Whirpool just has to be turned counter-clockwise with the selector pushed in. It will spin off the shaft and then the outer indicator dial will pull off. The shaft also has a keyed slot that will only allow the dial to be removed and installed one way, so there should be no question as to how it goes back on.

Was there a reason as to why you are removing the washer selector knob? If this is a simple matter of replacing a broken water temperature selector, you shouldn't have to remove any of the control knobs to gain access to the selector. The entire front panel comes off by removing the screws holding it in place. That way you can access the broken selector from behind the front panel much easier. Just remove the panel right above the washer top (under the dryer) and it should expose the front panel mounting screws. Remove these screws and the front panel comes off. Just make sure the unit is unplugged before you begin. I hope this helps you. Let me know if you need further assistance.

Main Control Knob Removal


Pull the knob off, some units have a set screw that holds it inplace but most are just tight fit. May need to pry it off. The screw that holds the control in the front plate is under the knob. Take the back plate off which is just behind the control. label the wires as you remove them or unplug one wire and put it on the same plug on the new control.
