The door doesn't have any tension on it and when it is opened it opens wide and bangs against the counter top. Is there any way to adjust it?

Hello,

Check the hinges on the refrigerator door, it is possible the hinges is worn out, that is why the door does not have any tension, if that is the case, you will need to replace the hinges on the door.

Take care.

Erratic garage door opener


It is an adjustment problem. Any obstruction and the door goes up again. So try adjusting again but don't leave space to invite rodents that will cause damage to car wiring. I am just going thru that.

ADJUST TENSION DOOR


Just below dish loading door there is a panel. Remove screws (if applicable) to find tension adjustment. Turn screw to the left to loosen or opposite lifting door open or closed untill happy with tension. Some washers have no adjustment, I suggest opening door fully and pulling out bottom load tray, loading and then top tray or rack, pushing top in first then bottom rack. Use a glass fry pan cover or fry pan for weight on door while filling soap. Good luck, best regards

When shutting the door, it rubs against the side. The other side has plenty of clearance. How do I adjust the door?


If it rubs against the cabinet that its under there should be two clips that are attached to the top of the washer and is screwed to the underneath of the counter top. Take the screws out of clips and counter top and you should be able to move it enogh to fix the probels.

I just fixed a me super but the frame counter doesn t reset when the 36st is reached or when I attempt to open the camera. HOW DO I RESET IT without openning it?


By opening, do you mean the back cover or the top cover?
after rewinding the film opening the back door will reset the counter. if it does not reset, try firing the shutter with the back door opened a few times. this counter is mostly plastic.
with the back door opened try taping the top cover over the counter to free the counter gear.
if it still wont reset the top cover will have to be removed and the counter repaired.
there are no new parts available for this model Pentax so a good used counter could be expensive.
if you take the top cover off, usually the pointer plate on the right side of the counter is rubbing on the counter preventing it from resetting.

Motor is driving only one direction counter clockwise that closes


TRY UNPLUGGING FOR ABOUT 5 MIN.

THIS RESETS THE CIRCUIT BOARD.

IF THIS DOESN'T HELP TAKE OFF THE COVER AND LOOK AT THE LIMIT SWITCHES IT MAY BE RESTING AGAINST THE UP LIMIT - THIS WOULD TELL THE DOOR TO CLOSE - THE CHAIN MAY NEED TO BE SHIFTED - WITH THE DOOR FULLY CLOSED AND THE OPENER RESTING AGAINST THE CLOSED LIMIT REINSTALL THE CHAIN. & THEN RECHECK ALL ADJUSTMENTS

HOPE THIS HELPS

Door won't open


Chances are the rear of the door button and/or the face of the door open lever is worn enough that it will not actuate properly.

On a counter top model, the outer cover will need to be removed to diagnose and repair this. On an over-the-range model, only the control panel needs to be removed.

Please unplug the oven first.

If you or someone you know wants to look into this, we have critical safety, disassembly, and troubleshooting info at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa.

Once it is apart, you'll be able to see how the door open button would press against the door open lever, which would then lift up against the door latch heads (hook-like projections on the door) and the door should open.

You can't.  The door is preset at the factory and doesn't have any adjustments.
