How do I fix the remote on the RC Thunder Tumbler RC Car to prevent the tire from spinning as soon as the remote control is turned on?

Use the throttle trim control to try and adjust this unwanted throttle application out. Refer to the user manual on how to trim the remote functions

I have an LG-WD-1433RD . My dryer wont spin dry what would be the problem

Most basically it can be 2 things assuming it powers on and the touch controls act normally.

1. The belt that drives the tumbler around is broken and therefore it isn't spinning.

2. The motor that spins the tumbler is blown out and needs to be replaced. Again, no spinning.

In either case they are an easy fix and most any good dryer repair tech can fix it quickly. I've done this type of repair myself, but you have to be handy AND careful because if the exposed sheet metal edges. I always wore gloves and a long sleeve shirt.

Good luck. Having your dryer out stinks!

Hope this helps, please don't forget to rate or ask a follow-up question.

I have a GE Front Loader. Model# GHDVH670H1GG. The tumbler works until water is required to be drained. At that time, the tumbler is trying to tumble for rinse, but, the water is not being drained and not...

On my machine the pump filter was clogged preventing the water from draining out of the machine properly. This would leave the clothes soaked in water as the machine tried to spin, the extra weight caused the drum to rub against the door seal while spinning, causing the burnt rubber smoke! I removed the 3 screws on the lower fron panel of the machine and opened the drain ( make sure you have a pan or bucket to catch the water! ) cleaned the fliter and put everything back. Works like new again. Good luck.

My tumbler won't turn. Tried unloading some rocks but still having a problem.

I had the same problem, The problem is that the tumbler lid is to smooth and there is no grip from the spinning wheel. I solved this problem by taking a kitchen steak knife and roughing up the edge of the tumbler where it rides on the spinning wheel. Works great now. Best of luck

Dryer runs belt not broken and tumbler doesn't spin

the belt may not be broken but it might be stretched past its limits check and see if the electric motor is spinning when the belt is off but my personal suggestion is take a digital picture of the belt on the pulley and tensioner so you can reference it when putting it back together
