The screws in the bottom are Torx T10, which is a lot smaller than the Torx bits in a typical screwdriver set. The other problem is that since they are in deep holes you need a long and skinny (about 1 1/2") bit to reach them. Thus you need a dedicated T10 screwdriver, not an interchangable bit in a holder. You can get a T10 screwdriver at sears for about $5. You can also get the Kobalt folding Torx set (with Torx sizes from 9 to 40) for about $10 at Lowes.

Replace a bottom heating element can't seem to get back of oven off allen keys don't fit do I need special tool?


They won't be high security fixings.

Look at the head of the screws with a flashlight.

So allen keys (six sided) either metric or imperial (they are fractionally different sizes. Zanussi will be metric.
Robertson (square head)
Torx (star head).

Why do you want to remove the back of the oven? Access is usually from the rear of the stove, the bit next to the wall, via an inspection cover. The exception is fan assisted ovens, which is often a combination of both.

I am looking for where I can buy the Allen wrench for my simplicity SW432 serger. Please advise me where I can buy it. Thank you.


You can purchase complete sets of Allen wrenches in either SAE (U.S.) or Metric sizes at most hardware stores, home improvement stores, Radio Shack stores, etc. for relatively short money. If you can bring the screw with you or find out what size it is from inside your manual - you might be able to purchase only the particular wrench you need. If you can't find the size of the screw documented in your manual, you'll have to check both SAE and Metric sizes for the best fitting wrench .

Sewing machines often use very small fasteners and are precision devices through and through. Simply using a wrench that "fits" as opposed to the one that is the "correct size" will affect how many times you'll be able to loosen and tighten that screw. Using a wrench that "fits" will eventually wear out the screw head making it impossible to turn in or out, much quicker than using the correct size Allen wrench.

I hope this helps and good luck. Please rate my reply. Thank you.

Handle Removal on Chateau Style Bathroom Taps


the handle removal is a metric allen wrench some of the cartridge replacements come with an allen head wrench

I always plug the drains and completely remove the allen head screw then the handle comes off
Sometimes you have to pry it gently or take a hammer wrap a towel around the handle where it meets tthe cartridge base and tap up under the handle lightly and it comes out

God Luck
