The vent keeps falling off the back of the dry how can I get it to stay on? It's a large plastic piece?

    I have a flex metal duct and picked up a big plastic end that attaches to the dryer. I have tried the metal clamp and had worse times with that. I have put alot of duct tape around it and eventually it still falls off. It's such simple think to be so hard to keep on! My dryer is light weight and right by the backdoor so it gets leaned on and moved around a little bit. I'm thinking of getting some small rubber things to put under the front legs so it won't slide, I did learn from another site that I have too much duct and need to shorten it. And I'll blow it out. I really appreciate your answer, I don't have $19.95 for anything more less a simple question. Thanks a bunch, sandy

Fix Model 3105 also Model 3612


The small plastic piece falls out when cleaning the head. It goes back in the left side of the removable piece. Hold it with the screen closest to your body and upside down. The small piece fits in the upper left with the square edge to the left in the small recess. It just sort of snaps in.
Mine is actually the 3612 cordless but they look identical from the photo. I have been trying to fix it for 6 months. When a new head had the same problem with the piece falling out, I decided it might be repairable. After I pushed the piece back in, it stayed. You can tell where it goes by looking at the taken apart shaver (With the head removed for cleaning). The shaver has a plastic pin sticking up on the left side. This pin is what lowers the trimmer when the shaver is assembled.
Hope it works for you.

Tail lights stay on with ignition off


The brakelight switch is located somewhere on your brake pedal arm. On many cars, there is a small rubber piece that the brakelight switch makes contact with. If that piece of rubber falls off the tail lights will stay on all the time. Look around in your floorboard for pieces of rubber or plastic. You can find another piece of rubber and glue it on if this happens. Or if the one that fell off is intact just glue it back on with superglue.

Or the brakelight switch could be stuck.

Water got in the scope how can i get the water out and is the scope still good


Your scope may not be hurt if water has not caused any rust yet. Things you will need, hair drier, Vaseline, large clear plastic bag, gas from a paint ball gun canister. Remove the eye piece, and shake as much water out as you can. Use the hair drier and heat the tube up, not too hot but warm, to dry the inside as good as you can, keep after it, shaking it and heating it. Once you feel all the water and moister are gone. Put a good amount of vaseline on the threads of the eye piece. The put the scope, the eye piece in the plastic bag. Use the paint ball gas and inflate the plastic bag, tie off the bag leaving room so you can screw the eye piece back on the main tube. Leave the scope in the bag for a few minutes before you do screw the eye piece on letting the gas fully get in the tube. The gas will give a bit of positive pressure inside the tube, Will displace any other air that will have moister in it. Keep the inside from fogging back up. The vaseline will help seal the gas inside. Hope this Helps Fix Ya up.

Recently lost gun in water for a moment, Now scope gets fogged inside. Is there anything I can do to stop it? It a fairly new scope.


Your scope may not be hurt if water has not caused any rust yet. Things you will need, (1) hair drier, (2) Vaseline, (3) large clear plastic bag, (4) gas from a paint ball gun canister or similar type of inert gas you can use. Remove the eye piece, and shake as much water out as you can. Use the hair drier and heat the tube up, not too hot but warm, to dry the inside as good as you can, keep after it, shaking it and heating it. Once you feel all the water and moister are gone. Put a good amount of vaseline on the threads of the eye piece. The put the scope, the eye piece in the plastic bag. Use the paint ball gas and inflate the plastic bag, tie off the bag leaving room so you can screw the eye piece back on the main tube. Leave the scope in the bag for a few minutes before you do screw the eye piece on letting the gas fully get in the tube. The gas will give a bit of positive pressure inside the tube, Will displace any other air that will have moister in it. Keep the inside from fogging back up. The vaseline will help seal the gas inside. Hope this Helps Fix Ya up.

My wife was cleaning the machine, when she opened the door a piece of plastic fell out in a half oval/rectangle kind of shape about 5-7 inches long.Internally it has 2 hooks about an 1inch long. External...


I'm having trouble picturing what this might be since you say "5-7 inches long" which is quite large. I can't think of anything that long (even the entire brew device is barely 7 inches long if that). But men tend to exaggerate how long things really are LOL.
There is a much smaller piece that matches the description with the two hooks - and the piece I'm thinking about also falls off really easily when you clean the brew mechanism.
If it is the piece I'm thinking of, it isn't important and you can use the machine just fine without it. But the piece I'm thinking of is only 3 inches by 2 inches or so.
If you pull out the tray and set it aside, then remove the brew group. Look at the brew group - the funnel where the coffee goes in is pointing straight up and to the left the brew group is at a 45 degree angle. Right at the top of that 45 degree angle is where the little cover snaps in place with those two hooks going down into two holes. If the brew group is inserted back in the machine, this cover would be right up against the side of the case on the left side - right where those vents are in the side of metal case.
I have often wondered why this piece is there at all since it seems to act like an "umbrella" just to keep things from landing on the brewing section. And there is a vent in the side of the cabinet right where this cover is - so maybe they wanted to make sure that when you clean the outside of the machine, any cleaning spray that goes through the vents doesn't end up getting on the brew filter to make the coffee taste bad. That is the only purpose I can think of for this cover. And it falls off just about every other time I take my brew group out to clean it unless you carefully avoid touching it.

Kenmore dryer isn't working


was the previos dryer taking a long time to dry??? Make sure a high velocity of air comes from the dryer with the vent unhooked there may be a internal restriction causing the long drying times, if there is no restriction then it is in the home vent line. To verify that it is a vent issue unhook the vent and do a load of clothes if it drys in 40-60min it is the vent.

The "spinner, 3rd level wash" kept falling off. Ordered new part, no instructions with it.


I had the same problem, the 3rd level spinner falling off. Without getting into my saga story, save yourself some $$$.
-You will need a screw & washer to replace the plastic thumbtack. The screw will have to be able to screw into the female part of the spinner; the washer will keep the screw from falling out of the hole in the flat hose on the ceiling of the dishwasher.
-If you look closely at the spinner(the part that keeps falling off), you will notice it comes apart. With a flat head screwdriver, separate the 2 parts. (there are 3 parts all together; Keep the round center piece sticking out of the top peice)
--Remove the top drawer of the dishwasher to give you some room to work
-Remove the screw on the "ceiling" of the dishwasher(it is located further back from where the spinner goes) to allow the flat pastic tube to come down low enough for you to get in behind it.(set that screw aside in a safe place; you will put it back later)
-Remove the pastic thumbtack from the hole in the flat plastic tube if it is there & replace with a washer and screw.
-Take the top 2 peices of the spinner, together as assembled & screw the screw into the female portion of the spinner.
-snap on the 3rd piece of the spinner
-replace the screw you took out earlier, securing the flat plastic tube.
-place top drawer
Voila, you are done!! You just saved yourself $20+
