The problem is likely the timer. Your model has a tendancy to break off the tabs that hold the timer in position. To check this you will need to remove the console and check the timer. Here is a link for Dryer timer replacement
This one covers disasssembling the console if needed http://appliancehelponline.com/toploadcabinet.html

Ignatior keeps sparking and stop why


i presume the sparking is actuated by when you push down on the knob. there is a switch under there. remove the knob by pulling it and use some small drop of cooking oil on the shaft to free it up. pres and pull till it works freely. this should allow the spring in side to push the knob up easily and turn of the sparking.

How do you record on a Lanier p-164


Turn the main power button "on" first, it is located on the skinny side of the recorder opposite of the function knob. Press eject to open the cassette door and install a microcassette tape, with the tape facing the function knob side. close the cassette door and that should load the tape and allow the tape head and pinch roller to move into place for recording or playback. pull the function knob down or push it up to record. If you go into record a red light should come "on" the top, to indicate good batteries and the record function is initiated. After recording pull the function knob all the way down to rewind the recording,when you release the button the unit goes into the play mode automatically. Make sure that the button that reads (off--- vor/fplay) is in the off position.

LED that illuminates the stitch selection bar quit working as did the up/down needle button.


Check your bobbin spindle. If engaged (pushed toward the right) LED will not light. When the clutch knob is pulled out, when you wind a bobbin, the up & down needle will not move. So you must push the clutch knob in again to let the up & down needle go up and down. The clutch knob on my machine is in the large hand wheel upper right side of my machine.

How do i change bulb in air conditioner panel ny my 2001 jetta


Behind the center knob for the heater controls there is a single small bulb that lights the whole heater control.
Move the switch to the vertical position, move the gear shift out of the way(shift to D or 1 with engine off, and set the parking brake). Use a pair of pliers with a rag to protect the knob and pull the center knob out. The bulb is directly behind it. The best way to remove and replace the bulb is with a piece of rubber vacuum hose. Gently push the hose over the bulb, then pull, the bulb should come out stuck in the hose.
You can install the same way, push the bulb in, then gently pull and twist the hose to release.
Be careful to align the bulb to its socket. If the knob is vertical the taper of the bulb base should also be vertical.
Then just push the knob back on, remembering that it is aligned to a vertical position

Replace digital display for Jenn-Air range


Obviously, safety first. This being an electrical fix, unplug or otherwise disconnect the power to the appliance.
A philips screwdriver and 1/4" nut driver(or socket) are all that's needed.
First, there are 8 fasteners on the underside of the control panel. Only the 4 nearest the oven openning need to be removed from here.
Next, remove the burner knobs for the stovetop(simply pull straight off; if stuck, wrap a folded wash cloth behind the knob to gain extra leverage). Then remove the 4 screws that were behind the knobs.
At this point the panel should be loose and pulling out the bottom of the control panel will allow it to clear the knob shafts. Be careful not to pull too far, as the wires to the control board are rather delicate.

Lakewood 16" Pedestal Fan- Control Switch gone bad (probably)-


I have seen a number of oscillating fans where the push-pull knob just pulls off. It will require a serious pulling effort - straight up. Do Not use any tools. You may have to have a helper hold the fan while you pull the knob.

After the knob comes off, push the shaft back down with your finger to allow it to clear the housing.

Burner with intermittent feature won't light once hot; spart OK - - no gas.


mdpaul, sounds to me like 1 of the burner switches for the ignition is sticking. There is a small area where the switches turn to that shuts down the ignition. If the switch has failed from heat or is out of position, this can cause this issue. The switch is designed so when you turn the knob it closes the contact. The switch has to be locked into postion on this model. There is a push fit type retainer that locks this down. Pull the knobs off and turn with a pair of plyers to see if one is moving around. If so then with a deep socket, see if you can tighten the retainer by pushing down on it. Hope this helps.
