Most if not all of the simplicity brand drop-side cribs have been recalled, including the Graco 8740.

The recalls are because of a lot of problems with the side rail latches. According to the CPSP and comments from different people on here, The Simplicity company is not fully operating and the phone #'s for them are not connected so you cannot obtain repair kits from them anymore.

Here is the CPSP link regarding this crib:
http://www.cpsc.gov/CPSCPUB/PREREL/prhtml09/09260list.html
http://www.cpsc.gov/cpscpub/prerel/prhtml07/07307.html

According to the CPSP information the company appears to be out of business to some degree and are not providing repair kits.

If you know where you purchased the crib, check to see what their policy is regarding recalled baby products.

We had purchased ours at walmart almost 8 years ago and were able to return it to another store in a different state for a full refund last summer. They did not need a receipt received, they just needed the manufacturer label on the part that the mattress lies on.

Because ours was older, the customer service clerk did have to work hard to find the crib in their system, but once she did, it was not problem at all.

Ford fiesta 2010 model, drivers seat is stuck near enough fully forward. I am unable to retract the seat back.


Normally there is a wire connections to the seat track locks and if one is broken or un hooked you will only be releasing one track. You may have to unbolt the seat from the tracks to fix it if you cannot get to see under the seat. Clean tracks make for easy adjustment so clean out the dirty track

My 2002 Toyota camry drivers side window is off track when it's rolled up. Water leaks in and when your driving there is wind noise


You may have to review notes on how to remove the drivers side panel and replace one of the broken screws that hold the glass in place on the bottom rail. I believe the cause my be that and if not it may be a sticky guide rail. Try rubbing some furniture polish on the edge of the glass that sticks (usually to opposite side of the one that does not match the door). This may help to get the glass sliding smoothly again.

How to replace power window motor for 2003 dodge


That's unusual for a window motor to go bad, however the plastic track breaks causing the window to become inoperative. If you hear the window motor working, then the plastic geared strip is probably broken. It would be cost effective to you to first find out whether the plastic track is broken for now Chrysler sells a "generic" window track where you cut the plastic track to fit Your Vehicle. Should this be the case, then remove the door panel (a Haynes Manual would come in handy), and take out one pin in the plastic track, while supporting the Window! (smile) and remove the old track and re-install the new track.

A little secret here...buy some Mopar Speedometer Grease while buying the Window Track and grease the metal rail that the plastic track rides on. The Speedometer grease is NOT temperature sensitive, so it works well in Summer & Winter Temperatures.

Should it truly be your Window Motor, Chrysler sells a re-build kit for the Window Motor which has the gears and grease needed to replace the worn out ones in the head of the Window Motor rather than paying for a "Brand New" window motor. All of this (the plastic window track AND the Window Motor Kit), will be under $100.

I hope this helps you,
Let me know if this resolves your problem.

Ink cartridges come off carriage


I'm not too familiar with the 12xx family of printers, but sounds to me like you have broken the print head track arm. Look carefully at the side that has come off the track. The traditional Epson print head design is to have the top track arm as part of the print head, and the bottom track arm as part of the print head carrier. The print head and carrier clip together thus providing a closed arm over the track rail. The key question is, have you merely unclipped the print head and carrier? If so all you need to do is position the upper and lower jaws over the track and push the print head and carrier parts together until they click. Alternatively, is a lower or upper jaw missing? In which case, one or other is broken - disaster I'm afraid.

Remember, I'm talking about generic Epson design of the 1290 vintage. I have the 1290 service manual, which is of the usual Epson rubbishy standard, but it's not the same as having actually dismantled one, which I haven't. However, if you look carefully at the side of the print head that's come off the track rail, you should be able to spot if anything is missing i.e. broken off.

Drastic Need for 2 Upper Tracks...


if you have the conversion kit for the crib to convert to a toddler bed, you should also have the white caps that go one the end of the guard rails for the toddler bed. I found with mine that they are the same ones as that are on the stationary side of the crib on the back side. if you do not mind having a crib with out a drop side you can remove both tracks and take those pieces and make it a stationary crib by merely following the way the rear side is put together. I have done it with mine as a guide was broken on mine. there should be four caps in the conversion kit that go on the two rails on the front side when you convert to a day bed. I figured out that they are the same as the ones on the back because you do actually use the ones off of the back side when you make it a toddler bed and put all four rail on.

Childesigns crib part needed


I have the same problem and I spoke to www.productsamerica.com at 1-800-772-1041 this morning and they said that the childesign is no longer in production as far as they know and no parts available. They also said no repair kits available will fit it. I am stomped as to whether I should just go out and buy another crib now.
