    I have a AEG Lavamat 1230, and I also need to replace the rubber gasket, because the original one is chipped and is leaking. I have the new part, but am having a hard time to remove the old, and put in a new. Is there anything that has to be removed from the machine to loosen it?

Hi again,

Rubber gasket due to their function would be tight fitting, you may need to force it out. Often it would have a lip or locking protrusion to keep it in places. The hard part is being able to remove a portion of it off the framework and the rest will follow.

    A flat screwdriver may help but you must be careful not to cut or "wound" the rubber gasket. Force the screw driver between the rubber gasket and the metal part until a space is seen, thereafter manually pull out the gasket. Pls check if the gasket has a notch somewhere. Some models have gaskets with notch r marking to indicate which end/side/part goes where.

Replaced water filter but water won't come out unless I physically push the filter in it seems like the filter is not all the way in but it is any suggestions thanks

Hello Dean;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service refrigeration technician.

You did not provide a model number which is on a label on the inside wall of your fresh food (Refrigerator) section near the top.

There is a check in the water filter housing.

1.) Bad Check Valve?:
a.) Remove the water filter.
b.) Place a towel under the water filter housing.
c.) With the door open, hold the refrigerator light switch in and have someone use the water dispenser.
d.) Observe for leakage.

2.) Water Filter:
a.) Inspect to ensure there is a rubber O-ring on the stem of the water filter.
b.) Check the length to the stem on the water filer to see if it matches the old filter. Sometimes water filter substitutions do not fit.

Once again, I do not have your model number and these are things that I have experienced in the field.

How do I replace gasket in toilet tank that leaks ? Thanks

the water closet is attached to base with a couple bolts that have rubber washers, take them out and remove the closet from the base, you will then see a rubber gasket that fits between the pieces. After replacing the gasket reassemble the pieces and be careful not to over tighten the two bolts that secure the top and bottom.

Replace boot gasket

Hello, Remove the door hinges and plastic covers on the unused hinge screw holes on the opposite side of the door opening (door is reversible, so there are places to mount hinges left and right). Front panel will now snap out at top and lift off lower spring clips. One screw on each side will now release top panel and it will hinge up. Prop up with broom handle or something. Now you can get at everything. Rubber gasket is held onto drum with a cable loop and very strong spring. It rolls off the lip easily to disassemble but is VERY difficult to get back on without special tools or at least two people. Door side of rubber gasket is easy in comparison with rubber tabs inserted into slots and working the gasket into a groove. Hose clamp at bottom of rubber gasket to connect drain hose.

Exahust manifold gasket, how to replace?

The difficult part in changing manifold gaskets is getting to the bolts. It is not difficult. I jack up the vehicle and place on jack stands so I can work above, below and through the fender well. The drivers side will pull out far enough to replace the gasket without haveing to remove the manifold. You should inspect the surface for straightness. Tools needed are socket wrenches, box end wrenches and a pry bar.
Good luck and rate me highly.

congratulations, it may help you if you use a bit of water with a bit of detergent as lubricant when snapping back the rubber gasket in place.
