The fan speed control switch on my 2004 freestar was put on incorrectly. How do I take it off to adust where it is pointing to?

Well, this is a strange question. I guess you have the knobs and not the buttons. Normally, the knob can only go on one way. If someone forced the knob on the wrong way, you can pull straight out on it and it will come right off its shaft. Just hope no one glued it on.

The twisty knob switch could have been installed into the climate control cluster incorrectly. Once you pull the knob off the shaft, the position of the flat spot on the shaft will be obvious, as well as if the knob was rigged to fit. If the knob looks ok and so does the shaft, you will need to pop off the trim surrounding the climate controls and the radio. This will expose the screws that hold the climate control to the sub-dash. Remove the screws and pull the cluster out of the dash far enough to get behind the fan switch. The switch snaps into the cluster from behind.

The single zone control variant is even simpler, it's part of the trim bezel that wraps around the radio. Less screws to remove.

Once you get the cluster apart, you may find that someone jimmied the switch or cluster. This assembly is 99 percent plastic, so if something is snapped off, cracked or broken, you can either do a plastic repair or replace the whole cluster.

After you take the assembly apart once, it will be easy to do the same at a salvage yard. Just call around to the u-pull-it yards and find one near you. While you are there, grab some more parts off of the donor van to fix yours. The grand total will be less than the price of a new switch.

Good luck and please mark my answer as helpful. 25358000-u40lsvyytnuesyuv3fbafhtd-2-0.jpg

On/off swith knob broken

Is it the actual knob that is broken or the little tab the knob holds onto that is broken. You either need a replacement knob or a replacement switch assuming the know is also the thermostat for the unit. Does that same knob control the fan speed? Temprature or timer?

Knob for kitchaid stand mixer

I am assuming you mean the little black knob on the speed control has broken off. I will post the solution for that problem.
The speed control lever on KitchenAid mixers has a little black knob on the end (in some cases this may be white or gray). The knob is pressed onto the lever, so if the knob breaks off your only option is to replace the whole lever.
KitchenAid has a kit that will include all you need to replace the speed control lever. It even comes with instructions. Here is a link to the speed control lever kit on our website:

The lever kit includes the speed control lever (with knob), speed link, spring, instructions and a gearbox gasket.

The instructions will only walk you through how to hook up the speed control lever, so if you also need a little guidance in taking the mixer apart, and reassembling it please use the KitchenAid service manual. The manual will walk you through all of the repairs you may need on your mixer, including how to take the mixer apart and put it back together. Here is a link to the service manual:

Remember, The Mending Shed is a Authorized KitchenAid service center, we can help you with any repair needs for your KitchenAid appliances, plus all of the parts we carry are genuine KitchenAid brand.

Thank you,

How do you open a wu pin switch. the chain broke & went inside switch

My chain was broken about 1.5 - 2 centimeters inside the wu pin. I took a chain connector (with some chain hanging off one end) and fed it into the hole, trying to connect it to the broken chain. After a couple of tries I managed to get the end of the broken chain inside the wu pin to connect to the chain connector by gently pulling down once it was somewhat inside the chain connector. I hope this works for you. I was so glad I didn't have to resort to cutting any wire or making a trip to a home improvement store!

I have a 1998 ford taurus and the mode selector control knob spins and all i get is defrost. any ideas how i can get the knob to work?

the knob may be broken or worn were it attaches to the switch.if you remove the knob and use a pair of pliers to turn the shaft to see if the modes change,if they do then you need to replace the knob and make sure the metal lock tang is with the new knob that securely holds the new one on the shaft.if not then the switch is bad.the rear of the knob should have a odd shape that fits the same shape of the shaft it attaches to.

I have 2 Hunter ceiling fans and the wall switch has 2 knobs which you push to click on or off.......after you click can turn the knob and increase or decrease the fan speed. You can click on both...

Hello .. you should be able to find a replacement for your fan control at any building supply store, a home depot type store. Look or ask for a variable speed fan control. This is slightly different from a normal liight dimmer . You might also look for a replacement knob before replacing the whole switch, or matbe getting a replacement just to replace the knob ..

2002 Nissan Altima - Heat doesn't get hot and doors get stuck

Did the switch break because it was stuck? If so, then yes, they will have to change actuators and doors. Does the fan work on all speed setting? If so then you do not need a blower resistor. The resistor pack only controls the current flow to change speeds of the fan.

Control for fan blower not working on any speed.2005 santa fe

Don't.  What you have to do is take the ashtray out then remove the 2 screws.  Pry the whole assembly off and replace the switch in the back. The knob only moves the switch back and forth and nothing more.

Broken knob

you can probably get a substitute knob from radio shack - replacement knobs. it may not have the markings you desire but at least you'll have a knob you can rotate.
