You will first need to replace the pool cleaners foot pad. Press down on the locking tab while pulling
the foot flange toward you and up. It is important to note that if the threads of the pad are 1/8" or less, you should go ahead and replace it also. You should then be able to slide the flap into place on the foot flange and replace the foot pad. Slide locking tab into position and push down on the shoe to lock it into place.

Failure to start and when it does start it quits right after it starts


Drain the gas. Remove and clean the brass bolt that holds the lower aluminum float bowl onto the body of the carburetor. Use carb/choke cleaner aerosol spray. Use NO metal objects to clean this brass bolt. It is also the main jet for the carb. Clean the bottom hole and the very small metering holes along the top in the unthreaded section of the bolt. Clean until shiny and all holes clear. Reinstall (don't forget the felt external washer). This procedure WILL restore fuel flow to the engine so the engine doesn't die lean (lack of fuel).

How do you replace the top shell of the Rainbow D series? It doesn't look like the wires can be disconnected without cutting.


To replace the top cap of a D4 Rainbow vacuum:

Remove the separator.
Remove the 4 screws on the bottom.
Pull the bottom off around the foam tank gasket.
Remove the next 4 screws.
Carefully pull the wiring up through the middle section wire hole.
Remove the top cap 4 screws.
On the bottom of the switch there are 4 fingers, one on each corner.
Push the fingers towards the center of the switch and push the switch through the rectangular hole
Pull the wire through the middle section and the top cap to give you as much loose wire as possible.
On the long sides of the switch near the wires are 2 small round holes with small semicircular tabs pushed through the sides of the switch assembly. These tabs hold the wire assembly in the bottom of the switch. Very carefully push a jewelers screwdriver between the switch body and the wire assembly on each side simultaneously to release the tabs and pull the wire assembly from the switch body. BE VERY CAREFUL. Do not pull the wires hard. The wires are held in the wire assembly by small friction clips. They are not soldered or attached except by the friction clips. These friction clips fall out very easily. The twist in the wires alone will pull them out of the friction clips. So hold onto the wires in such a way that they cannot twist free. If you loose a wire or two, you will have to push them back in and reset the friction clips. This was a challenge of dexterity. During factory assembly, The wires were probably pushed one at a time into the bottom of the completed assembly. You could record the position of each wire and replace them as the factory did. This was the most difficult step as the switch came apart very quickly and without warning and the wires very nearly separated from the switch assembly.
Remove the old top cap from the wires and replace it with the new top cap. A 3rd hand may come in handy.
Push the wiring assembly back into the switch body the same way it came out.
Push the switch back into the top cap.
Reassemble the vacuum.

We tried to rekey our kwikset smart key, but couldn't and now the original key doesn't work


I had mine do the same thing right before I was leaving to the airport [re-keying for the house-sitter]. I was setting the lock and I hear a spring-type ping and the keying was lost.

The tumbler can be reset to your key. However, it involves disassembling the device and has small parts.If you are feeling lucky, you can do this yourself or take it to a qualified person.

If you are feeling lucky:
A: Disassemble the lock from the door

B: Remove the door handle from around the key side.

C: Remove the U retaining-clip from the outside of the lock that is securing it to the shaft.

D: Remove the lock from the shaft

E: Remove the U retaining-clip from the tumbler body and the case
F: You will have to press the five fingers down evenly on the length of the case to slide the cylinder out of the case. (I cut a plastic card with small wire cutters to make a tool, but you could probably use thick card-stock and some scissors.)

Be careful; you will have to watch for and secure the check ball on one side of the tumbler and the finger lock bar on the other side as you slide this out.

G: Remove and store the check ball securely as well as the finger lock bar. (careful with the plate surrounding the fingers that the finger lock bar resides in)

H: Remove the finger locking plate. Carefully, make sure the fingers are still inside and oriented correctly and the spring at the back of the finger locking plate is left in place.

I: You will notice a u channel groove in the fingers and the finger locking plate. Align the fingers in the finger locking plate evenly so that the grooves in the fingers match the groove in the finger locking plate.

J: Replace the finger locking plate with fingers aligned evenly with the u channel groove back onto the tumbler body and hold back against the spring left on the rear of the tumbler body. This puts the tumbler into re-key position.

K: Replace the finger locking bar onto the finger locking plate while holding the assembly against the spring and tumbler body. (If this is done correctly, the finger locking bar will now be flush with the side of the finger locking plate and not raised as normal.)

L: While holding the tumbler assembly together and maintaining the locking plate pressed against the spring, Insert your new key into the tumbler body.


M: While holding this assembly in this position, add the check ball to the tumbler assembly.

N: While holding the assembly in position, slightly depress the black plastic block at the back of the finger locking plate and slide this tumbler assembly back into the tumbler case taking care to rotate the case 90 degrees clockwise from normal. (Note the U channel groove inside the tumbler case that normally receives the finger lock bar and use that for orientation.)

If the tumbler does not insert cleanly, verify the finger locking bar is flush. If it is not, redo while maintaining proper pressure to keep the finger locking plate firmly against the spring in re-assembly. Also, verify the fingers are not protruding from the tumbler body. If they are, redo the procedure taking care to align the fingers properly on assembly and maintain proper force on the finger locking plate against the tumbler body during re-assembly and new key insertion


O: Rotate the key and tumbler body in the case to the normal position (counter-clockwise 90 degrees).

P: While holding the tumbler body firmly against the case, remove the key.

Q: Re-insert the key and verify smooth rotation.

R: Align the tumbler body and case back to the normal position and while holding the tumbler body firmly against the case, remove the key.

S: Replace the U retaining-clip that belongs on the back of the tumbler body to secure it within the case.

T: Replace the tumbler body in the main lock shaft and secure with the shaft U retaining clip.

Cob webs behind screen


The frame around the screen just pops off. Unscrew the plastic holders from the chassis frame and the screen will come off allowing you to clean everything inside easily. The "2" thin screens are easily cleaned and put back on easily also. Don't do what I did and think the screens go into the front slot of your plastic brace, they slide easily into the wider slot. You'll also be able to clean the dust from the reflector and guns with Windex. Much better picture after wards, trust me. You would be surprised how much dust may have accumulated on the lenses.

How to dismantle vacuum hose at the handle with the power switch on epic 6500


Good that you didn't just pry things open. If you look closely you will see several tiny plastic caps under which will be hidden screws. Remove the screws and gently separate the "handle cover" from the main handle, then slide the handle off the hose. Clean the internal handle contacts and the rings on the hose. Reassemble by installing handle onto hose fully to align contacts, then installing wiring cover portion onto the hand grip.
Any evidence of black pitting on the rings needs to be polished with fine sandpaper and the finger contacts adjusted for tension to eliminated further shorting. After cleaning, you can apply a very thin film of petroleum jelly to the contact rings for smoother rotation.

How to clean turbo brush of harmony electrolux and put it back together properly


Wait, there are two more screws that must be removed before the top shell will come off. They are located under the wheels. Pop the wheels out by simply inserting yoru finger or a small tool into the wheel and pulling straight up. Remove those two screws and then you can proceed as mentioned above.
When reassembling the head, if the shell does not snap back onto the base, check for plastic chips or other debris in the narrow slots on the underside of the shell. Clear these slots out and the head should easily snap back together.

I have a craftsman rider w/ a 12 hp tecumseh. it


Most surging problems today are caused by a 'lean fuel' condition caused by 'varnish' or debris in the 'main jet' of the carburetor. Many times the jet can be cleaned with a thin piece of wire commonly called 'tag' wire. It is smaller than the main jet hole and does not damage the hole. The main jet is commonly the nut on the bottom of the carburetor that holds the bowl onto the body of the carburetor.
If the body or bowl of the carburetor is plastic, then the best solution is to replace the bowl with a kit that is offered by the manufacture.
In some cases, the carburetor has an electric fuel solenoid, which when malfunctioning, will not allow enough fuel into the main jet to operate the engine.

How do I reassemble Kenmore model 110.29842991 Need a parts manue


First, see the Sears parts site for your washer:

http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/getModel!retrieve.pd?pop=true&modelNumber=110.29842991

See the Agitator and Tub section.

Basically lower the main agitator onto the transmission drive shaft. (Be sure that the two pronged "washer" and clip are on the shaft).

2. Screw the double threaded bolt (with a rubber washer on the bottom) into the agitator shaft

3. Carefully lower the top agitator onto the lower one and screw the 1/2" (probably plastic) bolt onto the double threaded bolt.

4. Put the cap on

5. Put the fabric softener unit on and push down on the locking ring.

What is an OE error


I would guess that the impeller has come off the pump motor shaft. You can disassemble and push it back on, but it will come off again. I don't know if some type of adhesive would work, but I just replace the pump motor.
Drain water from small drain hose (or by removing filter) Remove the screw in the plastic recess by the filter, then use a putty knife on the left or right side to pop out the recess. Remove two more screws holding pump body to front frame of washer. Pull washer about 18 inches away from wall and tilt it back to lean against wall. You can reach through the large hole in the bottom of the washer base to access the pump. There is a plastic locking tab holding the pump body to the plastic washer base, but don't worry if you break that, as the screws (removed earlier) will hold the pump back on just fine. Pump motor is held onto pump body with three more screws. Replace pump motor with a new one and reassemble. On a difficulty scale of 1 -10, this one might rate a 5.5 or a 6.
