My Elite Sliding Opener is not closing. It hits the the end of the gate hard and retracts back?

The Limit nuts are out of adjustment. This can be caused by the chain jumping the sprocket, usually when something gets caught in the chain or it has not been adjusted. It can also be caused by a cracked limit nut. The limit switch and nuts are located at the top of the operator (under the cover) and has a lid held on by a single screw. Loosen the screw, and remove the lid.

elite-sliding-opener-not-closing-hits-3i3gptxgjc4ofcs21h1ecra2-1-3.jpg Inside you will see two cogs on a threaded shaft with slots cut into them. These slots are there so the lever will keep the nut from spins and allow it travel down the shaft as the shaft turns. The limit nuts eventually contact the limit switch, stopping motor. Look closely at the sides of the nut to make sure there are no cracks allowing the limit nut to spread open and slip on the threaded shaft. You may have to clean them to see it.

elite-sliding-opener-not-closing-hits-3i3gptxgjc4ofcs21h1ecra2-1-6.jpg If there is a crack, usually found between the brass nut and a slot, you will need to replace the limit nut. Go ahead and do both nuts at the same time as it is a challenging process and you will want to do it only once.
If the nuts are not cracked, simply press the bar holding the nuts in place back with a screwdriver and spin the nut towards the limit switch until the gate stops about one to one and a half inches away from the post. The gate stopping point can vary even more than one and a half inches on slopes so if it starts happening again, give it even more space.

Good luck

Noisy loose fan.Found a nut in the fan and trying to get it to stay on fan shaft but keeps falling off. Will this fix problem if can get it on?

Take the nut to a hardware store and ask for a self-locking nut. That type nut shouldn't spin off again. That MIGHT solve the noise problem, if the fan blades are wobbling, or the shaft is spinning within the fan's center.

Replace ceramic disk cartridge

First shut off water to the faucet. Most faucets have a screw on each hot and cold handle, remove the screw, then remove the handle. Now you should see a large Nut around the faucet stem, remove the nut, then the stem can be removed. Depending on the faucet you have, the ceramic disk can be replaced. Most faucet companies give a lifetime warranty on the disk, so you can order a new one for free if you have the warranty papers of the faucet, if not, you can usually get new parts on line, or at a plumbing store.

My infoglo has stopped displaying information however the unit itself is still spinning. Please advise

try unpluging the unit, remove the batteries and replace them, disconnect the phone lines and wait before about five minutes and do a fresh hook up. Do everything you did when you first bought it. If it still won't display then you unit may have fallen and the leds connections could have been dislodged.

I hope your unit reboots. I have a Discovery Channel Blue Globe.

I cannot remove light cover on ceiling fan to replace globe

There are usually small screws around the outside of the globe that screw into a recess on the globe with a rubber ring around it to keep the screws from hitting the glass.

How to fit a mantel to a coleman propane lantern

Hi, First remove the knurl nut on the top. Remove the top and then the glass globe. There are several types of mantels most of which tie with a string that is part of the mantel top. The newer ones have a wire clip in place of the string. Which ever type you had on before you need to remove the old pieces completely. Since the mantles burn to an ash they will disintegrate when touched but if it had the metal clip you need to remove it. Tie or clip the new mantle over the lip on the output orifice being careful with the screen underneath. Replace the glass globe and top, put the nut back on finger tight. Remember that the mantel turns into ash when it burns for the first time so keep the gas low to start it till the mantle forms properly ( in the first minute) Good Luck, this should Fixya!

Olympia, and/or Sharper Image infoglobe. Need fix.

It appears that you have already removed the 4 screws. The globe will not just fall off, it has to be pried. Take a small- bladed screwdriver or a small-bladed pocket knife and gently pry from any small opening you see between the globe and its base. Work the blade around the globe and it will come off. I just did it and now I'm trying to figure out how to get inside the "guts" of the globe. Will keep you advised.
