Open the upper housing and look at the spindle press gearing. If something like a nut or a foreign object has most likely fallen into the gear mesh area. It will move slightly and then LOCK yet return to the up position. If this is not what is causing your issue then please provide an exact make and model number so we can use reference material to resolve it.

Thanks for choosing FixYa.

Wont spin or play discs

Two possibilities, The Spindle motor need lubrication or the unit is in such condition that the pickup can not focus on the disc. This happen if the spindle platter goes out of specs- they slip down mostly. The CD olayer wants to get a Focus OK signal before the disc is told to spin.

Make sure the bobbin winder is in the position away from the bobbin stopper. When you fill a bobbin, you have to push the "spindle" towards the handwheel. If you do not push the "spindle" back into position (away from the handwheel), the wheel will remain locked.

I cant figure out how to fill the bobbin

it's possible that your thread guide may be off some & needs to be adjusted
or the bobbin isn't being pushed down far enough on the spindle to click into place to hold good

How do you lift the platter off the turntable of a aiwa pze860 it wont just lift up ?

If the platter doesn't lift straight up, look for a retaining clip (a circlip) on the center spindle holding the platter down. If there is one, use a small screwdriver to pop the clip free, but be careful not to lose it. Once the clip is off, the platter will lift up. If there is no clip, the platter is just seized on the spindle, and a good tug will lift it free.

Bit wont tighten down in collet

Get a new collet and nut the 1/2" collet is crappy, it is too thin and pushes out of the nut easily.

You may also make sure that the collet did not seperate from the nut. remove the nut completely and if the collet is not attached, remove the collet from the spindle, insert inthe nut and then insert the bit through the collet while holding it and then put the hole thing back on the spindle (mtor shaft) and tighten it.

I've replaced inner and outer bearings,new hub,seal etc.. on my 89 GMC seirra 1500 2wd and the innerbearing wont go up on spindle enough to get the nut on.How do I fix this?

Check to see if the spindle is scared up,or has a bur on it,keeping the hub from going all the way on,if it has,take a flat steel file and file the bur down.Make sure you have the right replacement part,

Im having trouble put in a ball joint in my 2000 taurus can anyon

The ball joint has pressure on it from the strut,it may be loose in the spindle,and you dont realise this.It takes a large bar,and two people to push it down far enough to remove it from the spindle.If you are sure it has not turned loose of the spindle,the take a big hammer and hit the spindle real hard multiple times near the ball joint,all around the spindle.Do not hit the ball joint itself.just where the ball joint stud goes threw the spindle,not the ball joint stud(don`t hit the stud)This will jar it free,but you will have to use a large pry bar and push down on the spindle control arm.

Remove pulley on mower deck spindle

These are generally held on with just one large nut, I recommend you use a impact wrench otherwise it mau prove difficult ( you wont be able to hold the spindle tight enough) and certainly you will need a impact wrench to reassemble the spindle
