    Not sure if there should be a spring or something on white lever. String plays out continually, and cuts off in 2 or 3 inch pieces.

Spring assembly in Coleman on demand hws

Hi Neil, I think I've sat down for several hours trying to work out how best to fit the spring in so it actually works.It's really difficult and I suppose the factory has a machine that does it and I think it's possibly the hardest thing on the whole unit to get right. I've looked at Youtube and there isn't a specific fix to this problem. Firstly,holding the knob in your hand, the spring sits in the knob with the smallest prong of the spring placed in a "V" shape mold which is thicker plastic than the other protusions. I've tried the other suggestions from forums to no avail, so where I'm at now is I know that the thick jutty out bit on the side wall that's got metal over it and the longest prong of the spring, both get positioned in between the two plastic fins on the other round part ( not the knob) on the machine. I drilled a small hole in the outside wall of the knob closish ( I sometimes use words you won't find in a dictionary but you get the gist) to that thick protusion with the metal on it. That's for a small screw driver to keep the longer spring prong close the thick bit on the side wall. Using a finger to push/ lever the long prong around then stick the screw driver in to keep it there.Problem is that when I do this , the small prong of the spring comes out. Maybe if I silicone the small prong in place and leave it for a day ,that might secure it for the time needed or rig up something to hold the short prong in place. I just think that if I can get to that stage , I'll be able put the knob on / screw in the screw and pull out the screw driver then tighten up the final turns of the screw. This method might sound unorthodox but if it works, problem solved with only a small hole left in the knob

2003 mitsubishi climate control stuck

Follow the cable.. It's the white piece that the cable connects to. Some kind of spring doesnt push the white piece forward far enough to select a hot temperature. You can adjust it yourself from the driver's seat at a red light. It feels like flat lever against the dash/transmission tunnel. Push forward for heat, pull back for AC. There's a spring busted or something and the knob can't overcome the required force... Just manipulate it manually. You can see the white lever mechanism clear as day if you open the driver's door, crouch down and look for the big white piece. My guess is that it has a internal tensioner or spring that crapped out.

Can't get shifter out of park replaced knob and spring replaced brake on off switch still no luck

probably the brake pedal switch (mounted on the brake pedal lever) starting to fail. it releases the shift lever and controls the brake lights coming on. you will need to replace this.

for now, turn the key in the ignition to the lock position (counter clockwise,) then to the off position (clock wise). In this position the brake shift interlock is disabled and you can move the shifter to neutral. these instructions are also in the owners manual in the driving section.

Kitchenaid stand mixer will not stay in the off position.

There is a spring, item #4, which hooks on to the bottom of the control plate, item # 25, and pulls it back when you move the lever to off. Remove the rear cover and see if that spring is still connected to the control plate and to the lever arm, Item # 3. Here is the diagram:

I just received a 693 plunge router via internet order. As soon as i took out the plunge part out of the case and moved the lever it pupped up and now will not move up or down > Is there something I am...

The plunge base is spring loaded. When you move the lever is springs to the up position. To lower it place the base on a flat surface, press and hold the lever down and push down on the handles. The router bit height should be set on the depth rod with the base in the down position. Then release it to the up position. When you have positioned the bit where you want it on the work piece, press the lever and "plunge" the bit down into the workpiece. The depth rod setting will stop the bit at the depth you set it for.

Need to repace a knob on a colmans water heater

I've just done that. The shorter leg of the spring must go into the knob. You will see two thicker mouldings in the knob where the spring fits ...v shape. The longer side of the spring goes between the two raised bits on the insert to the knob. The insert can only go two ways and the depressed portion must be at the top so that it is not pushing the micro switch in the off position. Assemple the knob, spring and insert before screwing to the unit.
