I have had to take a pair of chanel locks before and turn it. With a quick pop at first it should let go and let you turn it normaly after that.

Heater runs for 2-3 minutes then quits

Either the unit is over heating and being thermally shut down or the temp shutdown switch is shutting down prematurely.

When I turn my dyson DC25 while vacuuming, it shorts out and comes back on again when I straighten out. Is this something I can fix myself?

Common problem is a break in the wire where it enters machine, caused by accidently stepping on cable when using vacuum. Unplug appliance from mains then you need to gain access to where on/off switch is (normally one star/Torx screw to remove cover) pull spade connectors from switch then cut about 3-4 inches from cable, strip wires and re-attach to spades then reassemble. A bit of a fiddly task but won't cost you much. Tools required: Torx size 6 and a small crosshead screw driver, wire cutters/strippers, insulation tape, it may be easier to buy new spade connectors as it's difficult to pry them open to re-use. Basic electrical experience (if you can wire a plug correctly you can do this!)

How do i use a spade bit?

I'm assuming you mean a spade drill bit?

For best results, try clamping a block of hardwood to the back side of the stock before drilling. When the bit approaches the end of the cut, it will be far less likely to blow through with another piece of wood to drill. However, if the stock placed on the back side is softer than the workpiece, or if it is not securely clamped to the workpiece, tear out can still occur.

To use a spade drill bit, mark the center point of the hole to be drilled on the wood, and install the shank of the bit into the drill. Align the point of the pilot tip of the spade drill bit with the mark on the wood, and adjust the angle of the handheld drill so that the shank of the bit is square to the surface of the wood. (Of course, if you're using a drill press, the bit's angle should already be square to the surface of the wood, unless your drill table is not square to the motor).

Depress the trigger of your drill slightly to engage the motor and turn the bit slowly. Hold the drill as still as possible so that the pilot point stays aligned with the mark on the wood. Because pilot tips can often "walk" away from the intended center point of the hole, some woodworkers will pre-drill the pilot hole using a small-diameter twist drill bit that is less likely to walk, and then proceed with the spade drill bit's pilot tip into the pre-drilled pilot hole.

Once the pilot tip is in place and engaged with the wood, increase the speed and proceed to drill the large diameter hole with the spade drill bit. Continue drilling until you reach the opposite side of the wood and the bit pokes out through the completed hole. Slow the speed of the motor, and pull the drill bit out of the completed hole.

I was drilling into wood with a 1" spade type bit

Generally, if you remove the battery and leave it in the charger over night, the internal breakers should reset. If not return it to Sears for a replacement. (The drill)

Was using with a spsde bi and hit a nail. Now

You may have inadvertently hit the hammer/drill switch and it is floating the middle between functions. This selector switch has a symbol showing a drill bit on one side and a symbol of the hammer on the other. Engage the switch bacK into the drill position

Only high speed on fan works

If the fan only work on high, then your fan blower motor resistor needs replaced. Here is the breakdown:

The front blower resistor block is located above and behind the right front strut tower on the firewall.

First remove the 10mm bolt from the clamp holding the low pressure tube to the bracket that is in your way.

Remove the 10mm nut that holds the bracket to the strut tower.

Spin the clamp up out of your way a bit.

The resistor block is connected to the firewall by an internal spring steel type of pressure clip. You need to push a small screwdriver in from the sides of the resistor block to release it from the firewall. You may have to pry it off the firewall, in which case you’ll need to reform the ears on the firewall where the clips attach. It helps to already have a new resister in hand so you can see how it attaches to the firewall.

You will probably find that the springs are fine but the spade connections are corroded. One or more of these will probably break when you try to remove the block from the harness connector. Push the bad connector/s out towards the wire harness. Any bad connectors will likely be discolored, and possibly have melting of the plastic around them.

Cut the bad spade off of the harness.

Get a new spade that is large enough to fit the new block and handle a piece of 12 or 14 gauge wire. Do not use smaller gauge wire to do the repair as a fair amount of current passes through this circuit.

Solder the splice connection and cover the splice with two pieces of heat shrink tube.

Solder the spade connection.

Make sure that the new spade will seat all the way into the harness connector. It doesn’t matter that it doesn’t lock into the harness connector.

Apply di-electric grease to your connector.

Insert your new wire and spade into the new block until it’s fully seated.

Install the block into the firewall and reattach bracket.

Test for blower function on all speeds.

Matika hammer drill - bit stuck

The spade bit sold with the hammer drill was actually too large for the hammer drill. We found that the spade bit had over heated (not from overuse or heavy use as only two ladies were using the hammer drill) but because the bit was too large it put too much weight on the drill. The bit had to be removed from the chuck using a hammer and force causing a bearing to come out and the chuck now needs repair. Solution repair the chuck on the hammer drill and buy a lighter spade bit. Then continue jackhammering the cement out of the shower cubicle.
