Mechanism may have loosen up after you clean it. You may need to send or bring it over to a Certified Service Center in your area to replace parts for it.
Keep me posted.

Why won't our arm on our record player advance to play record on auto control? Lifts, moves back and returns to original position.

Try adjusting the counterweight on the back. Average weight setting is 1 gram. most high end RPs have it and it's a 'turn clockwise to increase' deal.
If it's a cheapo, there may be something interfering with the arm. possible a spiderweb inside! or??

My brake will not shut off unless I take the fuse out. Sometimes when I put the fuse back in when the lights are not on but as soon as I push on the brake the lights stay on.

Replace your brake light switch. There are two different types but I believe you have the one that is under the dash. the arm of the brake pedal pushes against a button type switch. This switch has a bit of adjustment that can be made by moving it closer or farther away from the brake arm.

the other type of switch is hydraulic in nature and screws into the master brake cylinder, but again I don't think this is what you have.

Hunter model # 44155c - set on 73 - cool air comes out- but never kicks off and never gets down to 73

Check the temperature drop from your return temperature to your supply air temperature. Your supply air temperature should be 16 - 20 degrees cooler than your return air temperature. If it is not, your problem may be with your air conditioning unit and not your thermostat.
Prior to calling a service tech, here are some items you can do that may correct the problem for you:

- Ensure your air filter is clean and properly in place
- Ensure your evaporator and condenser coils are clean......clean as necessary.
- Ensure your return grilles and supply registers are unobstructed.
- Ensure your ductwork connections are tight and undamaged.

I hope this information is very helpful to you moving forward.

Hi, my son's xbox 360 will not read disk and we have cleaned it. last nite the kids were playing and accidently jammed the tray it would not open nor close my husband finally fixed it to where it opens and...

This is fixable, if the unit is not very old it may still be fixable for free actually. Regardless you are going to need to call Microsoft as the DVD drive in the 360 has failed. Their number is 1-800-4-My-Xbox

No spark on rancher 55 what part do I need to replace and what is the level of skill needed

Electronic ignition systems are not fixable as a rule--everything is potted. Magneto types with points are usually centered around the points. Not sure what type you have. Points must have clean contact surfaces and open (high point of cam) about .020"--about the thickness of a paper match cover. If the contacts are in bad shape, then the condenser and points should be replaced. The coil is a possible, but not as common, failure.

Type writer problems

IBM has a return clutch tensioner spring that gets streached and causes that trouble it is a specially shapped spring but you can see it if you remove the black plastic cove on the inside right sideand looking close the the center frame for a spring that is fitted to a coiled spring that is around the cennter shaft hope this helps.
