How do I remove knob from Magimix 2-Slice Vision Toaster with out damaging it?

Do not try to just pull it off, you will likely damage difficult to repair parts.

On the underside remove 6 pozidrive screws 3 each end (one under the crumb tray)
Standing on its base - open the doors and remove 4x countersunk torx T10 screws, near the top, that screw from the inside into the end covers.
Now remove the opposite end to the knob, (in order to learn how it is held). Pull the bottom away from the base to the left, around 5 mm, and slide the whole end cover upwards, it unclips at the top. The other end is not so easy of course because of the knob. Release the cover, as before. It is possible - with the knob at the top, pull the bottom of the cover out 5mm and push hard to slide it upwards as before. The cover will release from its top mount. Then slide the cover all the way up, as far as the knob slot will allow. This will allow you see and have access to the back of the knob and the plastic clip that holds it in place. Stand the toaster on its base, with the end cover lifted up it is easy to put your hand inside the cover from the top and putting your thumb and forefinger around the bar you can grip the plastic hook and ease it downwards whilst you use your other hand to pull the knob and its firmly attached bar away. It will be necessary to wiggle the knob up and down whilst pulling it outwards. The bar surface is not flat, it has ridges that hold it in place quite well, even without the clip, hence the need to work it up and down. That's all there is to it! Hopefully you haven't broken the clip off, but if you have, don't worry you will still be able to use the toaster with little impact. The attached photo shows a close up of the knob and bar just separated from the mechanism. This should give an idea of what you are up against.
What a fantastically well made machine this is, a real pleasure to work on.

Dont know how to set up my total body works 5000

Pull out on the short knob located where the bottom support bar meets the incline rails. Hold the knob out as you pull the bottom crossbar away from the top crossbar, extending the glideboard rails to the maximum length. Step 2

Release the short knob once you've fully extended the glideboard rails. Make sure the knob snaps all the way back in place.
Step 3 Grasp one of the rails and lift it up to support the top of the Weider Total Body Works frame. Locate the spring-loaded pin in the bottom bracket on the short, vertical bar that supports the upper frame. Pull this pin out. Step 4Raise or lower the upper frame to the desired incline setting, sliding the bottom end of the vertical bar so it lines up with one of the adjustment holes in the lower frame leg. Step 5Slide the spring-loaded pin back through the bracket and the hole you lined it up with. Make sure the pin is fully engaged before using the Total Body Works 5000. Step 6

Insert the tubes on the foot plate into the openings on the bottom of the Total Body Works, on either side of the bungee brackets. Insert the two L-shaped pins, included with the Total Body Works, through the foot plate and frame to secure it in place.
Step 7

Insert the handlebar tubes into the openings at the top of the incline rails. Insert the two L-pins that were included with the handlebar through both the handlebar and the Total Body Works frame, to secure the handlebar in place.

My wrist watch has been in a drawer for over a year. I want to wear it now. the time shows 6;13 and the date shows 8: 16. It is running correctly. How do I set it foe the correct time and date?

First you need to unscrew the crown (setting knob) of the watch. Turn dial from up to down (downwards), you will feel the knob loosen and then it will pop out gently.
Pull out the pin very gently and turn downwards to set the date. If you have a Day and Date watch, turn upwards to set the day of the week.
To set the time, pull the pin out futher and turn to set the appropriate time.
Finally push pin in and simultaneously turn upwards to screw back the pin.
Please make sure you push turn the pin tightly because most cases of Water Damaged watches are caused due to the pin being screwed up not tight enough.

Setting a cartier chronograph watch

  1. click the top button to stop the second hand
  2. click the bottom button to reset the timer
  3. pull the crown out all the way
  4. twist the crown forward hard and fast for a few seconds. The minute hand will start advancing very quickly.
  5. when the desired date and time is reached, push the crown back in place. If you missed the time, pull the crown back out and twist backwards. The minute hand will move slowly in reverse. If you twist hard and fast, the minute hand will start spinning in reverse again.

Temperature Control Knob Replace

If there is no visible screw hole the knob should just pull off. If it is an oven thermostat, they can sometimes be hard to pull off.

The window fell down inside the door. we can't figure out how to get the inside panel off or how to get the window back on track. any ideas? thanks

Hi my name is Allen!

This is a common problem with Chrysler vehicles.
The cable on the regulator has broken allowing the window to slide downward, unfortunately the only repair is replacement of the Regulator/Motor Assembly which must be bought at the dealership.

To remove the door panel, you must remove all the screws and remove the handle that opens the door, next grab the panel and pull upward if doesn't move upward you will need to pull it toward you away from the door, pull very hard the clips holding it are very tight, sometimes you will need to install a screw driver at the bottom of the panel, put it between the panel and the door and pry toward you. They will make a pooping sound that sounds like you breaking the door but its OK, pull it hard, then lift upward and toward you. That's It!

Volume Control

The volume control shaft lube, over time and heat exposure, will flow down and corrupt the contact between the volume twister and the spring loaded sensor. Pull the cover off the tuner, locate the volume control and take out the two screws holding it in. It looks like a small circuit board with the volume twister attached.
The base of the twister is hooked to the circuit panel by four metal tabs. Pry these guys gently away and pull the twister free. There will be a metal disk at the end of the volume control shaft, and will have a goopy lube residue on the face of it that can be cleaned with electric contact cleaner or some other kind of solvent. Wipe it clean,(do not immerse) reattach, and test. Worked perfect for me.
Good Luck,
