The 3 screws in the guard keep pulling out of the thin plastic. Any solution? I have tried using longer screws but even they don't hold.

How do you replace a GE Spacemaker Oven Profile JVM1490WD003 handle ?


usually you need to demount the front panel
then remove its face unit as it will have a back guard unit
so they split apart with screws usually counter sunk machine screws
then the front unit section will have the handle attached
de mount it and replace and back step
i find if i place all the screws like a map of where they came from
then when placing a screw in metal or plastic
turn the screw anti clockwise {to the left}
till it clicks down and drops a bit
you get a feel for it so practice

once you do this you can almost guarantee your on the correct threads when you wind it clockwise {to t he right} to secure

esp important with plastic
if you drop in the wrong thread you end up with a unit thats plastics holes
no longer hold the screws turn turn isnt good
when you can use this trick

Maxtra chainsaw parts


We added an O-ring to the gas cap, used a Goof-Off cap to replace the bar oil cap, added a flat-washer to hold the plastic saw cover. Since the pole joints slip out of place, he used very short self-tapping screws (made for steel studs) to fasten more permanently. He started the holes with the screws, but then backed them out and shortened them by grinding off 3 threads. Then he tightened them.

Mainly, we just found the problem that solves the start / fuel issues many have had on the Maxtra Pole Saw!!!!!!!! My husband noticed the carburetor seemed giggly. He had removed the air cover and been starting it by pouring a little mixed fuel directly into it, It would run a little bit, then die. I watched the fuel line, and even after pumping it up, it would get air bubbles in the line while it ran, and then drain completely. The fuel line is really short so we both thought it just might not be far enough into the fuel -- but that was not it. He saw the two nuts inside the breather and decided to remove those and the carburetor. A little tricky if you have NO mechanical skill at all, but really pretty easy, take photos if you need to remember how it goes. He found that the manifold piece behind that had 2 bolts holding it and they were VERY loose. This created a horrible air gap. He gently tightened those bolts with a hex bit keeping in mind he did not want to strip them. (Now we wish we had used Lock-Tite). We put it back together, pumped the primer AND IT STARTED ON THE FIRST PULL!!!! First pull, ran continuously, and even idled!!!! We are going to replace the fuel line with a little longer tube tomorrow. This baby will hum now!

How do you take the plastic clip off that hold the tone arm


Well be very carefull, since they breal soooo easily. You can get if bu unscrewing the imbuscat the side and the internal you desolder your tonearm wires and with some effort you can pull out the pivot after unscrewing the the height adjustment screw at the the side. They are crappy things and i just glue them together woth some thin bare thin wire to keep it in place, after that i use some kevlar/carbon fibre with the right glue, but not a lot of glue holds on it.... annoying part.

Maytag bravos washer making a grinding noise. It seems to make this noise when the drum is moving, any suggestions?


Unplug machine and tilt it back. Pull down the white insulation board. remove the two screws holding the white/clear plastic guard in place 5/16 nut driver. and check the gear and belt ours had come off. Now it works just like new you will need a 13mm hex for putting the gear back up.

I have been trying to fix my brothers laptop for him (Toshiba Satellite L305-S5891), I had to replace his original plastic DC Jack with a new one made of metal. just trying to solder the stupid thing to...


I suggest you try the shortest screw in a hole first, if it does not work then try the next longer screw and if this does not work then the longest screw.

For Danze Sheriton/Plymouth tub/shower faucet, I am finishing the wall with ceramic tile and have set plumbing so plastic guard face will be flush with finished tile. One drawing in the instructions shows...


Don't cover area where plastic guard should be. Make it flush. Some trim is designed to recess into the wall before it's flush. Screws, adapters, trim etc. all will need to be installed when tile is set. Make sure you have nipples extending out from shower head and spout area's as well. If you do this and think ahead a little, you will have fewer problems assembling trim.

Will a timber bandsaw cut thin plastic or will i need a plastic cutting blade on my clarke bandsaw. The teeth are very fine on the timber saw thats in now thanks


Hi, yes it will cut plastic, but if its a brittle plastic you will need to guard against splitting. To guard against this you can brace the plastic with a thin sheet of plywood underneath whilst cutting.

Kenmore whispertone 100 model 116. powerhead no


  • The motor / cord compartment cover must be removed to access the cord reel. There are four screws that hold the cover to the chassis. Two of the screws are found under the cord-retractor-foot-pedal on the top back of the canister. To access these screws the pedal must be removed. To do this, press the pedal down and look (from the top) for the four plastic clips that attach/hold the pedal hinges to the cover. There are two at the end corners and two in the middle. Using a long, thin flat-head screw driver (or similar instrument) press each clip to unhook/popout the hinges. Note: the foot pedal spring will also come out when the pedal is removed.

    The other two screws are found under the curved hinges of the vaccum bag compartment cover. To access these, lift the cover as if accessing the vacuum bag. Keep pulling the cover back until the hinges release from the motor cover. Don't worry, it is disigned to do this and will not break but it may require a little force. A long phillip-head screw driver will be needed to access and remove each screw

Touch screen won't calibrate on garmin 2720 gps


The touch screen is a 4 wire resistive type made up of several layers. A thin plastic layer, a micro thin metal layer, microdots for insulators, another ultra thin metal layer, and a final plastic layer. All of these layers amount to the thickness of a sheet of paper. This whole stack is bonded to a thin sheet of glass and placed over the actual TFT display.

It's amazing that you can see through all these layers and only lose 20% of the light. What's not so amazing is that those thin metal layers are prone to damage. I've seen several with no apparent damage that didn't work, and several with visible scratches or cuts that worked fine.

I usually start by installing (or reinstalling) v7.2 firmware and then attempt to recalibrate the screen, sometimes that works. Next I would try re-seating the 4 conductor touch screen pigtail in it's ZIF socket nestled between the big white wires on the display assembly. The last resort is to buy a broken 2600 or 2700 series Garmin and salvage the touch screen. You could send it to Garmin for a flat $250, but that makes no sense at all.

If you get another screen (Garmin won't sell you one), Here's how to replace it:
Remove the six screw holding the case together.
Split the cases and pull the patch antenna out of it's slot.
Remove the four silver screws holding the display assembly into the front bezel.
Unhook the small ribbon cable that goes to the infrared receiver under the red lens.
Pull the display assembly out of the front bezel. It won't come all the way out because of cables.
Use a razor to cut the plastic tape holding the touch screen bracket to the TFT display.
Unlatch the 4 conductor ribbon from the ZIF connector nestled between the 2 big white wires.
Use a penknife to unbend the metal tabs keeping the touch screen from coming loose. I usually just do the two by the IR receiver.

When you reassemble, don't get frustrated with the gaskets, they're tricky but it can be done. Tom
