    I think we have the same problem as now only the Manual Cycle settings will work - we can't get the Automatic Cycle settings to work. Neither my husband or I remember rotating the dial incorrectly but it's quite possible that we did.

I was able to fix our problem by running through the control panel diagnostics as outlined in the repair manual, which I found here:

All the diagnostic steps were successful and after I had worked through the list I was able to use the Automatic Cycles. Hope this helps!

    Instead of clicking on the link, copy the entire text of the link and paste it into the address/url field of your browser. This site is adding a prefix of '' to the link for some reason and I believe that's the problem. The link should take you to another page with a link to a file called Duetdry.pdf, which is the repair manual.

Climate control selection knob is broken The knob would not turn and when I pulled it off a piece of plastic droped out and now the knob turns freely but won't change the settings from AC to defrost or...

If I understand correctly, the same thing happened to me. It might just be the knob, if you can use pliers to rotate the metal piece where the knob connects then either buy a new knob or you could hot glue the old one in place. Just make sure you have it pointing in the right direction if you do.

I need to know what knobs turn which way and what buttons need to be on

Volume/Squelch control: As desired
ETone: Sets the sound of the echo as desired
MicGain/RF Gain control: Normally, leave fully clockwise
Band Switch: for CB, turn all way to left (a/e)
Mode Switch: Selects how you modulate the radio. Normally, you will operate on AM, USB or LSB.
Fine/Coarse control: Changes the frequency you operate on. Normally, set so the frequency counter reading ends in 5. (center slot of the channel).
RB: Roger beep. Turn on or off as desired.
NB/ANL: Noise limiters. Leave on.
Frequency Counter: Turns counter lights on and off.
+10 KHZ: Allows you to get the channels missed by the Channel knob. Normally, leave off.
Power: Selects either high or low transmitter power setting.
Band: Selects band of operation. Low (A-D) or High (E-F)

The timing knob on my dryer wouldn't turn, it would just spin without selecting a setting so I pulled the knob off and tried using pliers to turn the plastic shaft to select a setting. It worked a couple...

Both the timer and the knob is replaceable.
Locate the model number of the unit. Here's info on how to find it:!retrieve.pd?modelNumber=+86673100&pathTaken=partSearch

You can get the timer and the knob from or call 1-800-252-1698.
Once you have the part, remove the screws from the back of the control panel, removing the back cover. From there you should see the timer. It will either have one wiring harness or many wires attached to the timer. INSURE UNIT IS UNPLUGGED WITH NO POWER TO IT. If there is a harness, unplug the harness. The timer will be held in place either by a couple screws on the front of the control panel that is normally hidden by the knob AND/OR a screw INSIDE the control panel at the timer. There could also be a plastic tab holding the timer in place. Raise this tab and turn timer until it is free. Remove timer and put new timer in place. Fit harness onto timer.
If there are many wires attached to the old timer, I would hold the new timer in my hand and transfer the wires one-by-one to insure you get the right wires on the right terminal tab. Once wires are transferred, remove old timer and put new timer in place.
At this point. put new knob on the timer on the front of the control panel. Plug unit in, stay clear of exposed wiring, and test dryer. If it works, replace back cover and you are done.
If it doesn't work, further troubleshooting will be needed and Ill need the make and model number.
Hope this helps. Please take a minute to give a testimonial if I've help you.
Thanks, G

Settting the clock on a kenwood kdc309

Ok here we go. first make sure the radio is in standby mode, push the control knob am or fm, select clk adj mode. hold control knob for 2 seconds the clock should be blinking now, to set hours push control knob am or fm to set hours. to set the minutes push control for forward or backward, as if you were skiping a track on a cd that is for the minute setting. then when you have it set press the control knob to exit.
If this doesnt help, here is a link to the manual for that radio.

I have 2 channels that do not respond. Both the xlr or 1/4 input won`t transmit.

I assume you mean the input channels.

Things to check:

1. Do the sliders work smoothly or do they have rough spot?

2. Is the trim (top knob) turned up?

3. Are the gain controls for the mix turned up? Try turning up the mon controls on the dead channels and see if they come through the Mon outputs. Try turning up the FX inputs and see if they reach the FX level sensing.

4.Are the pan controls set center? Mutes off?

5. Has any liquid been spilled into the unit?

6. Has an "accident" occured such as driving the inouts with a high voltage or something with a ground loop? Has something smashed down on the slider knobs? (this sometimes breaks the resistance element in the sliders or cracks the board.

A reasonable amount of troubleshooting can be done from the available outputs and some of the above things may seem silly, but with all the options on these units it is easy to overlook something.

Older model kitchen aid 2 speed quitet scrub just wont turn on. but will work in the rince mode however no water either. Perhaps its the timer but I don' know how to check that or replace it either.

Timers are not that hard to replace. Disconnect the power to the washer. There are two screws that hold the panel that contains the timing unit and other controls at the base of the unit, they go in about a 45 degree angle. Take those out and the panel will flip backwards and is hinged. Pry off the timer control knob. Separate the harness that is going into the timing unit. There will be screws on the back that hold down the timing unit or a nut in the front behind the control knob. Check to see if the knob has a set screw or allen type fastener. Replace the unit, reassemble and replug into the wall. Good Luck, Jim

Oven wont heat

Repairing the Oven Setting Control

When the oven setting control malfunctions, the oven won't heat. Here's how to repair an oven setting control:

Step 1: Remove the control knob.

Step 2:
Remove the back service panel or the front panel, if necessary. Remove other control knobs as needed to remove the panel. The oven setting control is located directly in back of the control knob and is usually held to the control panel by two screws.

Step 3: Testing the control with a volt-ohm-milliammeter (VOM) is not recommended, because the results will not always be conclusive. If you suspect that the setting control is faulty, the best procedure is to substitute a control that you know is working, or you could simply replace the faulty control with a new one made for the oven.

Step 4: Disconnect the electrical lead wires from the control terminal and lift out the control. Connect the new control the same way the old one was connected.
