Are you asking about faucet handle or pop up drain . If you are referring to faucet handle the easiest thing to try first is to remove center cover from top of handle. It's the one with the moen insignia or name on it. These are usually just a friction fit so use a small blade screwdriver or knife blade to carefully remove cover. There is a screw that holds handle on cartridge. Remove screw and gently remove handle by pulling up. If you have not shut off water supply valves this will open valve and run water. Push down on carteidge stem to shut off water. Use a penetrating oil such as WD-40 and spray around cartridge.Allow a few mins. then pull cartridge stem up and push it back down several times spraying with penetrating fluid several times. You can move stem by gripping with pliers. This should help free cartridge . If this helps you can save on service call. Reinstall handle with screw and center cover. Hope this helps. Thanks

Bathroom sink single handle danze faucet. I removed set screw, but the handle won't come off. How hard can I pull?

Alot of variables there. If it's really old you must be extremely gentle. I have had them crumble into pieces in my hand. If it doesn't appear corroded around the edges and is in good shape, you should rock or pry gently with a non marring tool (putty knife covered by rag) alternating sides to break it loose. A penetrating oil like PB blaster can be used if you can let it sit for a day. Just straight pulling is not wise. Tapping (not pounding) can be helpful. You are just trying to break the bond between surfaces so the vibration of lots of light tapping will sometimes do it.

Tighten door handle on Whirlpool Conquest refrigerator

You need to remove the handle befor eyou can tighten the mounting bolt behind it. T remove the handle just grab it and yank UP quick and hard. The handle will unclip and release, then you can tighten the bolt down and re-install the handle.

How strong do you have to be?!!! Trying that and it won\'t unclip. Not sure how hard to try--or will you break something?!!

You have to pull up pretty darn hard with a jerk. That is how both handles are removed on these conquest refrigerators

Tailgate has been hard to open for years. Had to pull handle up very hard and continuously had to pull it harder until the handle finally broke. Want to fix problem to make it open easier and replace...

after you buy and install a new handle remove the access panel on the inside of the tailgate, lube all parts with WD40 also the locking devices at either side of the gate. Also make sure there is no body metal dented inward that could impead the moving parts. WD40 is going to make your day use it generously!

Cannot start. hard disk not found

try the following:
1.Unplug it, then just try to use it again. Also you can reset the PS3 to default settings by holding in the touch sensitive power button for around 10 seconds untill it beeps.
2.Take a screwdriver and unscrew the blue screw and then pull out the hard drive. (Don't unscrew the other screws, just the Blue one).
To pull out the hard drive you need to take the little metal handle and pull it to the right, then pull it out towards you.
After you take out the hard drive, just put it back into the PS3.

To put the hard drive back into the PS3, use the little metal handle on the front of the hard drive and push it to the left while the hard drive is inside the PS3.

I pulled too hard on the inside door handle now the door wont open from the inside the latch doesnt seem to catch

likely the rod from the handle to the latch has fallen off or the handle is broken where the rod need to take the handle off and perhaps the door panel as well and take a look in there. It isn't hard to do but too long to write out. Either get a chiltons or haynes manual or just be careful and remove all screws. the bottom part is held on by push in "Christmas trees" or clips and just pulls out.

Problem opening d/door bmw x5

Hi remove the door card, you may need to reposition the rod, they sometimes bend making it harder to to reach the open position, most likely you will be able to fix this at no cost, just bend the rod back where it should be.

first shut off the power to the dish washer. The plugs are just verry hard to pull off. You may brake the switch on the old handle but if you have the right new part it should have new switches on it. Just pull hard side to side wiggle off.
