How do you tighten the tension where the bobbin is ?

Ther is a small opening where the thread comes out of the bobbin and a flat piece of metal right there, you need to check to see if the thread goes through it and out, or if it might be broken off. looks like a flat piece of metal and is actually a spring for drag on the thread. some machine have it where the bobbin frame rotates a little to adjust it. hope this helped

My GE dishwasher's door is stuck shut ~ I'm assuming a broken latch. I was told to fix the latch, the dishwasher has to be taken out from under the counter top (in order to get the door open). My...

Well I'll try to help you get this opened. I don't know how much space you have at the top side edge of the dishwasher. You need a long stiff rod like a metal clothes hanger straightened so it can reach from the side to a little past the dishwasher middle. You need to push it in between the door top and the dishwasher body up at the latch area. What holds the door closed is a flat metal piece with a plastic hook on the end facing down towards the floor. You need to try and get the rod under the metal piece and lift it slightly, hopefully to unhook the the door. If you can't do that, the only alternative is to pull hard on the door handle and you should be able to break the plastic part of the latch which will then have to be replaced. The part that should break is the top hook which would be an easy replacement, but I can't be sure thats all the damage to the latch that will happen. It may do some damage to the part inside the door also. This is last resort. I'll try to attach a parts breakdown of the tub so you can see the latch hook. Look at item #50

Hi I have a Hotpoint WD61D washer dryer and during the spin cycle of the wash the machine makes an almighty racket. Sounds like something is broken or loose inside and often it sounds like there is a...

From the symptons you describe, it is 1 of 2 possibilities that is causing the problem.

1- the main drum bearings have collapsed, thus causing excessive movement on drum, this is turn allows the drum to catch the outer plastic drum, thus breaking pieces of it off.

2- The main drum shaft has fractured, causing the drum to turn off center, again causing the inner drum to catch the outer drum, and breaking the plastiof the outer drum.
Either way, it entails a strip down to determine problem, and at the age the washer is, I would not cosider it a viable repair, as either way, it will be a repair bill in excess of well over a £100.00,and could be a lot more if the plastic outer drum has to be replaced, which is a distinct possibility.
Take the plunge, and treat yourself to a new washer.

No heat

Same problem with mine. There was a burnt connection on the heating block.
To fix this: 1) Unplug!
2) Unscrew top, 5 screws total. 2 on the back near the top, 1 under the water reservoir lid, and 2 up inside long black tubes located on the front two corners of the overhanging section. 3) Remove top, you'll see a large chunk of metal with a lot of wires connected to it. any one of these could be bad, but in all likely hood it's one of the 2 main power wires to the heating block. These are located on the back of the heating block. 2 metal posts with a flat piece if metal welded to each and a spade terminal on over that with either a red or blue wire. (colors may very, but i imagine it's universal)

For me it was the left of these two connections that was bad, the flat piece of metal was burnt and the connection was broken. To fix this I found a small metal clamp and clamped the spade terminal to the flat piece of metal. Soldering probably won't work, because the heating block could get hot enough to melt the solder, so this was the only suitable option. Short of actually removing the heating block and welding a new piece of metal onto the post.
4) Fix broken connection, if there's no obvious broken connection, or discoloration of wires, then it could be a bad heating block. Changing the heating block would be difficult to do safely for the unexperienced, so attempting this isn't suggested.
5) Return top and screws. 6) Make a delicious latte to celebrate

I just received a 693 plunge router via internet order. As soon as i took out the plunge part out of the case and moved the lever it pupped up and now will not move up or down > Is there something I am...

The plunge base is spring loaded. When you move the lever is springs to the up position. To lower it place the base on a flat surface, press and hold the lever down and push down on the handles. The router bit height should be set on the depth rod with the base in the down position. Then release it to the up position. When you have positioned the bit where you want it on the work piece, press the lever and "plunge" the bit down into the workpiece. The depth rod setting will stop the bit at the depth you set it for.

Cannot load staples

At the back of the staple gun is a flat shaped metal piece. It's at the bottom. Push in, pull down, then pull the mechanism out. You'll see it's a metal rod with a spring, that is attached to that flat metal piece. The spring pushes against another flat metal piece, that has a hole in it, and travels back, and forth on the rod.

The flat metal piece that the spring pushes down the rod, pushes against the staples.

Remove this spring mechanism, slide the staples down the rails. The staples will be in the position of an upside down U. Replace the spring mechanism, and lock it back into place. (Push in, pull up)

Should, your question be in reference to the fact that you have staples loaded, but upon pressing the trigger nothing comes out:

In the front of the staple gun, is a flat metal piece that pushes down on the staples. One staple at a time. The flat metal piece is shoved down by spring pressure. The spring pressure is applied to the flat metal piece each time you squeeze the trigger. (Flat metal piece = Hammer)

Sometimes, Two staples try to come out. When they do, this flat metal hammer is stuck up in the gun. To free the flat metal hammer, remove the spring mechanism out of the back of the staple gun. (The spring mechanism discussed above) Remove any staples in the gun.
Try to use a flat blade screwdriver, and see if you can shove the flat metal hammer in the front of the gun -> UP.
(DO NOT have the staple gun pointing at your face! DO NOT squeeze the trigger! DO NOT use excessive force)

If this method is of no avail for you, you have to disassemble the gun, and remove the metal hammer, and stuck staple/s.

Broken composite elboe

Replacing this elbow is one of the easiest jobs on any Karcher pressure washer. To gain access you will need a special screwdriver, variously known as a Star or Torx screwdriver (size T15), to undo the eight screws that hold the front to the back (three down each side and two at the bottom). You will also need to remove the handle (easy) and the black piece on the side that holds the gun when not in use (not so easy, but get a flashlight and look up at this piece from underneath, deep inside you will see a tab that must be released using a flat blade screwdriver).
When you get inside, you will see the remains of your broken elbow. It's fixed to the pump by a metal fork that you can lever out to the left, then pull the broken bit off. Look out for the O-ring, which may come off with that bit or may remain up inside the pump outlet. You will need the O-ring to fit on your new elbow (grease it well with a silicone based grease before fitting). Push the new elbow all the way on to the pump and secure it with the metal fork. Be sure to push the fork all the way home or it may work loose during use.
It's a good idea to test the unit before putting the front back on, to ensure there are no leaks. BE VERY CAREFUL TO KEEP YOUR FINGERS CLEAR OF THE FAN BLADES ON TOP OF THE MOTOR WHEN YOU DO THIS. 
Re fitting the front is just the reverse of removing it.
I hope this helps. Any questions, just post here again and I'll do what I can to help.
I value feedback, so please rate this response.

Third row seats

A little plastic bumper, located on a metal tab on the inside of the bottom seat cushions breaks off. It is supposed to hit the seat back release and allow the back to fold down when you push the bottom cusion in all the way. I finally just bent the metal tab up so it would hit the release and that fixed it. (Look for the broken palstic pieces under the seat cusion area as an indication) The dealer replaced the plastic part several times... a waste of time.

Door Handle

Yep, if the engineer had worked for me, I would have fired him/her. I have gone through 3 of them of the past 3-1/2 years until I got tired of it.

That said, it likely brakes at the same corner/corner. You will likely find a cavity inside each broken half. Using superglue and a small flat piece of metal (cut from a metal washer) sized/formed to fit inside cavities when the broken half are pieced together. Trial piecing the pieces together first before glueing them together.

If there are no cavities (solid), try creating one (you may be able to drill/carve out) in each broken half then follow the steps above.

Guaranty better than new and last a whale of a lot longr.

Good luck.
