Inspect the metal plate and if there is no holes or wear signs and it has not given any problems in the past you should be good to go.

How do I get a replacement remote control for fireplace


Look inside the fireplace to see the brand name on the log. Call the manufacturer. There may even be a number on the metal plate with the manufacturer's name.

I have to replace the front and rear cork gaskets on my Richelieu gas stove/fireplace. Does anyone know what kind of job this is? Difficult or easy? Any suggestions on how to do this?


cork is not a seal against gas so what he is talking about may be a retainer or bed for the gas unit. I would get a second opinion first and ask how it is done .

I need to replace a gasket on a Richelieu gas fireplace


while it looks easy, the danger from gas is greater than electricity and that is why gas is not in the diy domain
gas affects most gaskets and requires a special material and gasket goo
be safe--- call a gas fitter

I have a dru fireplace model richelieu, it was lit now for some reason the pilot is out i tried to re light according to the instructions provided here but the pilot seems to go out when i let go of the...


From what you have described, the problem can be related to three things: The pilot needs cleaning or the Thermocouple has failed. Or, you're not holding the gas control valve in long enough for the thermocouple to properly heat up. It usually requires at least 1 minute.

To clean the pilot all you need is a can of compressed air with a straw nozzle (like you clean your computer with) to blowout the pilot tip opening.

If none of the above solves the problem, then it's definitely a failed Thermocouple. Or your particular burner may use a Thermopile or Thermogenerator. Whichever it is, they all serve the same purpose. Which is allow the gas to flow to the pilot when it's lit or stop the flow if the pilot goes out unexpectedly.

Hope this helps you to troubleshoot and solve the problem. Please let me know. Thanks.

Where is the gas filter located on my ,05 hyundai santa fe?


The gas filter is located inside the gas tank in a 2005 Santa Fe. It is part of the fuel pump assembly located in the left side of the gas tank. It can be located by removing the left rear seat, folding a panel in the carpet out of the way, and removing a small metal plate in the floor.

Turn the gas knob to the PILOT position
Press down and hold whilst lighting the pilot

Rubber caulking is not good. You need high temperature furnace cement for this job. This is availible from Home Depot or a hardware store. Remove as much of the rubber caulking as you can first.

Need Instructions to use Fireplace Gas Logs


There should be a set of metal cards attached inside the fireplace.
First you should read everything there.

I know you have to first light the pilot light.
And then there should be a wall switch.

The problem I have currently is that it won't stay lit when the artificial logs are there.

Riccar 8700 Brush Roll


Greetings,

I will attempt to walk you through the belt change on your Riccar 8955 upright vacuum cleaner. I have taken pictures for you for each step to ensure that it's done properly. What you'll need to have handy for this repair;

- Phillips Head Screw Driver
- Riccar 4000 / 8000 Series Belt
- Riccar 8000 Series Roller Brush With Clutch Assembly (only if the brushes have worn down, not necessary if brushes are still long)

Step 1: Make sure the vacuum cleaner is unpluged, and turn the vacuum cleaner upside down so the bottom plate is upwards. It's easiest to do on a work bench or counter top.


a83c268.jpg
Step 2: Unsrew the two metal screws on the metal bottom plate with your Phillips head screw driver, and remove the bottom plate from the vacuum cleaner so the belt is completely exposed with the roller brush.

Step 3: Remove the belt guard that sits to the left of the roller brush, and is a metal part that protects any dirt & debris from going over to the belt. Here's a picture of that part being removed;


6cb6693.jpg
Step 4: Remove the Rug / Floor actuator arm from the clutch on the right hand side of the roller brush. Simply pull the metal actuator arm to the left of the brush and out of the circle that it sits in. Here's a picture of that;


fa36553.jpg
Step 5: Once you have removed the actuator arm for the clutch, as well as the belt guard, lift staight up on the roller brush and remove the roller brush from the vacuum cleaner:


bec4491.jpg
Step 6: Once you have removed the roller brush, and the old belt from the vacuum cleaner, take one new belt and wrap it around the metal pin in the back of vacuum cleaners agitator housing. Here's a picture of where that pin is located with the belt wrapped around it;


f76bd31.jpg
Step 7: Once you have the belt wrapped around the metal pin (this is the shaft to the motor that actually spins the belt), but the other end of the belt through your new roller brush;


68efbd6.jpg
Step 8: There is a specific way that the roller brush has to be inserted. If the roller brush is not put in properly, this can cause all sorts of problems including the brush not spinning, and continously having to replace belts. You can see on the end cap of the roller brush (the right side where the belt rides) that there is two little teeth that protrude out of the end cap as well as an indentation on the opposite side;


96719f8.jpg
Step 9: With the roller brush inserted through the belt, posistion the two teeth facing downwards. You can see in the vacuum cleaner where the roller brush sits, a little groove down inside of the housing. These two teeth need to straddle that groove. Also make sure that the little ring, or circle that the clutch actuator arm sits into, is facing upwards completely. It should be directly on top of the two teeth. Stretch the belt using the roller brush as leverage down into the agitator housing of the vacuum cleaner, making sure that the two teeth are facing downwards straddling the little groove. After the brush is back into the vacuum cleaner, take the metal actuator arm from the rug / floor switch, and insert it back into the metal ring (or hole) on the roller brush;

837f4a1.jpg
Step 10: Replace the metal belt guard that rests to the left of the belt. You'll notice on the belt guard that there are two little 90 degree notches on both sides. These notches need to face towards the belt or to the right. Here's a picture of the belt guard being put back into place;




72dd966.jpg
Step 11: After inserting the belt guard back into the vacuum, turn the vacuum cleaner over so the top of the agitator housing is facing you. Change the the rug / floor switch from bare floors to the carpet setting, and the turn the vacuum upside again so the brush and belt are exposed:


91e54c7.jpg
Step 12: With the vacuum set to the carpet setting, pull the belt forwards to ensure that the brush is spinning freely. If the belts do not spin freely, repeat steps 2-10.

f8f8407.jpg
Step 12: There is a flap that can be opened after the metal bottom plate has been removed, that will give you more access to the motor shaft. Make sure that this flap is closed;


8a23021.jpg
Step 13: The last tricky part can be reinstalling the metal bottom plate. There is a little lip on the front of the vacuum cleaner that the edge of the bottom plate has to slide under for it to be installed properly. A lot of people just install the bottom plate over top of this lip, and this prevents the brushes from hitting the carpet as low as if the bottom plate is correctly installed. Here's a picture of the lip with the bottom plate in the backgroud;


d49e2d9.jpg
Step 14: Slide the metal bottom plate into the lip on the vacuum cleaner, and fasten the screws back into the bottom plate to secure it. The lip is a little tricky, but after doing it just once, you'll have no problems in the future changing your belt.

Here's a picture of the bottom plate installed INCORRECTLY with the bottom plate over top of the lip;

Here's a picture of the CORRECT way to install the bottom plate:



I hope that this repair solution is helpful to you in installing the belt properly.

Feel free to request a clarification of the repair if you have any questions about this repair, or other repairs. I'm always happy to answer any questions.
