If you have good manual dexterity, a head for detail memory, and good soldering skills on SMALL wires, you may try reconnecting them. The grill may need to be reshaped and then held in the original position with contact cement. Test the mic before you attempt the last part. Otherwise, you may want to let a pro do this. As always, you have to weigh the costs against your own abilities to do this, keeping in mind the value of the mic. I can tell you that, as an experienced tech in this area, I only attempt this delicate work when I feel 100% and undistracted.

Vent pipe connection to Watts 9D-M3 BackFlow Preventer


Every Watts 9-D I have installed had a 1/2" female thread as the vent opening. I think yours is defective. If you have already installed your 9-D, just take it apart at the unions and return the body for a refund. If they complain that the union nuts are missing, have them take the nuts off of the replacement. Good luck!

The left speaker of my Bose On-Ear headphones suddenly stopped working although putting pressure on it makes sound come out for a very short time.


This may sound strange, but try slipping a piece of cotton on the area where the bare conductor runs through the plastic covering of the speaker (as suggested here). 39c682c9-7c92-4e14-963e-7b6eb35c074d.jpg

I have a stainless steel grill. The Rotisserie will light, but the burners will not. I purchased the grill in 2005.I have taken the grill apart and the tubes are clear. There is NO spark going to them. I...


The ignitor wire to the burners my have come loose or has lost full contact. Trace the wiring from the Ignitor Button to the main burners. Note if it loose or has come completely off. Also, check inside the grill at each burner to see if the ingnitors are covered with grease. If that's the case, clean them with alcohol and either a rag or a cotton ball. If all this fails to solve your problem, change the battery in the Ignitor Button with a brand new Alkaline type battery.

Hope this helps solve your problem. Happy Grilling!

I have a Bose remote that I dropped several times and I want to know if that could be fixed. It is RC28T1


Yes it can be fixed if you have patience and know your way around soldering.
FIrst its tough to take apart. I got mine apart by wedging a screwdriver in and twisting until it popped apart. (nothing broke) I started at a bottom corner and worked my way up the side until it came loose
The problem is that the broadcasting antenna at the top of the remote is very a very thin wire wrapped around a heavy cylindrical magnet and its solder points are extremely weak. You most likely dropped it and it came loose. I re-soldered mine and it worked perfectly.... until it broke again. The leads are very small and hard to fix.
Chalk it up to poor design.

I have a RC28T1-27 Remote that suddenly no longer works. Put in new batteries and it seems like there is no connection. Will not work unless you keep pressing buttons repeatively.

The cage of the mic is coming apart i believe it bringing distortion to my microphone.


The grilles of Rode mics are glued in place. They are integral to the RF shielding. You'll have to glue it back in place, making sure there is still metal-on-metal contact.

Fan and grill works but not heating up


Hi.
If the fan is working o/k, then you need a new fan oven element fitting.
Remove panel at rear of oven compartment, there you will see the element, undo any screws you can see to remove rear cover.
disconnect element taking care not to loose wires, and fit new element. test before you refit rear cover.
Plz rate this solution.Thanks
