When the unit behaves this way it usually is not hung up on something it is as a result of the motor teeth falling out of alignment. This fall out of alignment could be caused by a variety of factors from moving around. To open the unit all you have to do is take out the screws which can be found underneath the unit and slightly push up the upper cover to release the clips. Some of these screws are used to hold the rubber stands in place so you can start from there.
Hope this solution has been helpful?

Help with my Royal p70 electric pencil sharpener and I can't seem to get anywhere... A lead is broken in the sharpening gears and I don't know how to take apart the sharpener to remove it.. Ca

Turn sharpener upside down. On the bottom, you will see 6 black dots. Four of them are Legs while the middle two are covers to two screws. Peel the stickey cover off the middle two, exposing two phillips head screws. Once the two very long screws are out, the entire unit will fall out of the casing. You may have to push in the small plastic locking devise at the bottom. Good Luck!

When I insert a pencil into my brand new school pro sharpener, the blades spin, but do not sharpen.

The website says to check and make sure its not jammed with pencil lead or something else. unplug it take the shavings bin out and flip it upside down so you can look into the sharpeners. Rotate them by hand till you can see the open side of the blade then use a unfolded paper clip and slide it in the path the pencil would usually take. This should knock anything loose the would be jammed in there. If it passes through to where you can see the point you should be clear. If you didn't dislodge anything or it still doesn't sharpen but the blades spin when you try to use the sharpener, then there is a tab that can get jammed back that needs to be in the foreword position. The tab is located where the tip of the pencil would point if it was actually being sharpened. if you run the paper clip through the machine (just like when trying to dislodge something) the tip of the clip will touch the tab. make sure its not jammed back (away from the opening/pencil) it should be as far forward as possible for the blades to engage. I hope this helps! This has been jammed many times by pencil shavings or gunk on my wife's (elementary school teacher) pencil sharpener.

I have a Frigidaire FRS6R5ESBN and my ice maker stoped working i have tested the motor 596 ohms the inlet water valve 191 ohms all the micro switchs test ok. I don't know what to test next. Can I...

There are 2 types of icemakers that Frigidiare uses each style can be started to see if they will send power to water valve to fill the i/m w/water

It seems to me you have the type with just on big gear in the center under the cover and a smaller motor gear to drive the big gear (thats the type that has microswithes inside of it) to start it manually pull the fingers downward in a clockwise direction till fingers are in the 3 or so o'clock position and from there it should continue to run a 360 rotation by itself and at one point on the plug at the water valve their will be 120 volts ac to that plug. If 120 vac at the plug restart it again by rotating fingers and toward the end when usually the valve should open and send water to i/m . If 120 vac at valve yet no water to icemaker the water valve is bad and needs to be replaced so long as water pressure from house plumbing to valve is good. IF poor water pressure determine why that is

The other style has a gear under cover that says DO NOT ROTATE MANUALLY for that one place a jumper wire in the small holes marked T&H the i/m should start, when click is heard (usually within 10 seconds) remove jumper wire and again check for 120 vac at valve. Just as with other i/m type if 120vac at valve the valve is bad

Installed a model# UKI1000AXX ice maker on a Model# CFB1921AR Magic Cher refrigerator. Can not get voltage to the water silinoid has been installed in the refrigerator for appox. 48 hours.

Yes you can check the voltage to the valve, but first a word of caution. To start the icemaker and let it cycle so toward the end of the cycly power will be sent to the valve, THE ICEMAKER MUST BE STARTED USING A JUMPER WIRE AND THIS COULD BE DANGEROUS AND RESULT IN YOU BEING SHOCKED IF NOT DONE CORRECTLY. If you chose to proceed and check for power to valve;
remove front cover of i/m
usea jumper wires about 16 or 18 gauge and strip both ends so about a 1/2" one wire is bare on each end
place bare ends into holes on icemaker front marked as T & H
the main gear will start moving,the jumper wire may have to wiggled to get a good connection
once gear moves and within 10 seconds you will hear a click REMOVE JUMPER WIRE AS SOON AS CLICK IS HEARD
the fingers on icemaker will rotate in a 360 degree rotation,if you think of the fingers as the small hand of a clock in about the 10 to 12 o'clock position their should be 120 vac at water valve if i/m is good. if 120 vac present replace water valve, if 120 vac not present replace icemaker

My intermatic controller only works manually?

That is a 120 volt timer with a 24 volt output .. if the valves are being activated manually but the clock wheel is not turning to select the zones automatically, first check the wheel . it can become hung up when setting the time, and not be set on its spindlle so it can rotate with the clock motor. If the clock wheel is set and still does not turn, then the clock may be bad

Please vote !!
