Question about Sears Craftsman LiftMaster Chamberlain Garage Door Opener Wireless Keypad Model 976LM Security+

1 Answer

Wood Garage door has a lower panel that is rotted to the point where the particle board is crumbling away and now there is a 4" wide X 2" high hole. The panel is raised with a decorative trim and replacement wood panels can not be found. Was thinking of nailing a thin backing board behind the panel on the inside side of the door and filling damaged area from the front with a paintable caulk smoothed out like dryway mud. Any other ideas? I don't want to replace the whole door which will cost about $1500 as its a double sized garage door.

To open watch case, hold back of watch up with arrow pointer on the back plate...


If you don't have the proper watchmaker's tools (and you'll need several!) I recommend that you not do this yourself. You could scratch the case or damage the movement if you don't know what you're doing. If it's a water resistant watch the gasket also needs to be replaced once it is opened. DO NOT reuse a gasket! For about $8 any watch or jewelry2_bing.gif store can change the battery and renew the gasket for you. Most Sears stores will do it while you shop.

What are the different types of cabinet doors?


wikipedia provides a good explanation, quoted below:
Frames
. In the U.S. solid wood frame and panel construction, using either mortise and tenon or cope and stick jointed frames, is traditional, with maple, cherry, oak, birch, and hickory among the most commonly used species. Mortise-and-tenon frames, with their greater strength and permanence, are more costly to produce and less commonly used as compared to cope-and-stick frames. As an alternative, miter joint frames, which may be identifiable by face-surface relief that follows continuously around the frame, have become popular. Miter-jointed frames typically employ embedded metal fasteners to secure frames elements (stiles and rails) cut at a 45 angle. Captured within frames, panels may be either solid or veneered engineered wood (either particle board or medium density fiberboard). Laminates, including those designed to resemble hardwood, can typically be identified by a more rounded appearance associated with the minimum bending radii necessarily entailed by the manufacturing process of applying laminate to an underlying substrate. By comparison, solid surfaces, and solid hardwoods in particular, can be milled with more sharply defined corners, edges, or grooves on either a panel or frame.
  • Panels. Panels used in frame-and-panel kitchen cabinet doors may be fashioned either of solid wood or covered by paint, veneer, or laminate in which case they are fashioned of engineered wood. The panels are typically not fastened with glue or nails but rather "float" within the frame to accommodate seasonal expansion or contraction of the wood frame.
  • Solid-door construction. Doors may be fabricated of solid material, either engineered wood (particle board or medium-density fiberboard, but not typically plywood) or solid wood. Engineered wood panels may either be used as slabs or may be shaped to resemble frame-and-panel construction. In either case, engineered wood panels are generally painted, veneered, or laminated. Solid wood panels are typically formed of multiple boards of the selected wood species, jointed together using glue and may either be painted or finished. Solid wood construction offers the possibility of refinishing in case of damage or wear.
  • Decorative panels. Cabinet doors panels can be used decoratively on cabinet sides, where exposed, for a more finished appearance.
  • Glass door construction options. Doors may have glass windows constructed of muntins and mullions holding glass panels (as in exterior windows). Other designs either mimic the divided-light look of muntins and mullions with overlays, or may dispense with them altogether. Cabinets using glass doors sometimes use glass shelves and interior lighting from the top of a cabinet. A glass shelf allows light to reach throughout a cabinet. For a special display effect, the interior rear of a cabinet may be covered with a mirrors to further distribute light.

Whirlpool Duet front load washer. Put car mats in to wash. They are too wide and don't let drum spin. Stopped in first few seconds of cycle and error code came up but, door remains locked. How do I open...


1. Remove the lower panel under the door by loosening the three screws under the bottom edge on the front of the washer. HINT: If you prop up the front feet of the washer with some small blocks of wood, this will make access to the screws much easier.
2. With the screws removed, the lower panel should drop down then come off. If the panel sticks, a light tap on either side will knock it loose.
3. Reach your hand up inside the washer behind the front casing on the right-hand side. This is where the door latch assembly is located.
4. At the bottom of the door latch assembly is a small pull tab. This is the manual release for the door. Pull the tab straight down and the door will come open.

Garage door will open to sensor level and stop


You might have a broken spring. Check on the a the header above the door there should be a tude with a drum on each end and 2 springs (maybe one) towards the center. se if one of the springs has a gap (1-2 inches) in it. If it does you will nedd to cal a door company in your area. I recommend you replace both springs.
If you need to get you cars out some times you can help the operator to lift the door by lifting the door while the operator is lifting the door. Be very careful not to get your fingers in a pinch point and be sure to lower the door the same way.

How to remove the front lower panelKP-65WV600


http://www.somelifeblog.com/2007/09/how-to-self-diagnosis-screen-displays.html says, "The Sony KB-46WT500 has 4 round male plastic connectors that plug into round plastic holes in the particle board behind the front cover. 2 of them are even with the middle of each speaker and about 4 inches away from the inner edge of the speaker toward the middle of the front cover. The other 2 are just below the top edge of the cover about 4 1/2 inches away from the power button - 1 on each side.

Just remove the screws on the ends and then pull enenly (sic. He must mean evenly) on the front cover. You won't break it. i realize this may be too lat to help you, but maybe someone else will be helped."

I hope that helps.
