Hello, in order to remove the coil it will require some work, you need to cut into the plenum first then either pump down the refrigerant into the condenser or recover the refrigerant. Then cut the line set close to the coil to remove the coil. If you are familiar with hvac work then it is pretty simple, however if you are not to familiar with it I would call a hvac to do the work.

    To reinstall the coil you will need to braze the coil back in and pull a vacuum on the unit, pressurize it with nitrogen, once no leaks are found then let the refrigerant back into the unit.

How to change and replace valve cover gaskets in a 2004 Chrysler Sebring Convertible 2.7L DOHC V6


You first have to remove the ignition coils or plug wires and then remove the bolts holding the cover to the cylinder head. Discard old gasket. Clean gasket channel of any oil and install new gasket to cover taking care during assembly not to disturb gasket when placing cover back on cylinder head. The rear gasket is much harder to change as the upper plenum must be removed to access this cover. You should have some knowledge of engines if you are going to atempt this repair on your own

My timer works up to the end and stops but the dryer keeps going &going i have to trun it off my self


My guess is the contacts inside the timer are fried together. If you are careful you can take it apart and check. What I do is remove the shank ring around the shaft so that I can carefully remove and inspect the contacts without disturbing anything.

Coils are freezing. Need to clean underside. Dont know how to remove them.


removing an evaporator coil is no easy task - often requiring pumping the system down and cutting the copper lines (which requires welding them back in). Experienced servicemen will do anything to keep from having to do this.
The evaporator coil can 'usually' be cleaned without having to remove it. You are right about the underside being the side to be cleaned but I would think that you could remove the panel door/heating vent pipe - and by working your hands inside you could clean the underside of the coil with a brush or by hand.
I'm guessing it's going to be difficult but if you can get it done this way you will be saving yourself time and money (if you had to call a serviceman).
Note: a dirty evaporator coil 'is not a very common problem' - you might be ahead of the game if you have an AC Tech look at your unit and tell you what's wrong with it and how much he/she would charge to repair it. Often it will be something entirely different than what you might think that is causing your problem.

I have a 1987 suzuki savage, how do you remove the battery for recharging


Hi, use your key to open the side panel. You have to unscrew both battery posts in place, then slide the battery out. Don't loose the nuts that the battery screws screw into. Once the battery is charged, you need to put the nuts in place inside the terminals and carefully slide the battery in without disturbing the nuts. Then the screws will go into the nuts for tightening. Always loosen the negative cable first and replace it last to minimize the chance of shorting the positive to ground when attaching the positive cable. Please let me know if you have more questions. I have one of these and I have the manual for it.

How can i remove the fan barrel from the head unit to clean it


with care. first remove the screws holding the covers, you will find them behind two or three small caps near the louvers and maybe under the filter cover. Completely remove the plastic face. Remove the screws holding the coil in place. You can only remove the left hand end as the right hand is connected to the pipework. remove the grub screw holding the fan barrel onto the motor shaft. Remove the screws holding the left hand bearing in place. At this point you should be able to withdraw the fan barrel. Take very real care how you handle the coil, for if you kink the pipes your machine will no longer perform without some major surgery. While the unit is dismantled , try cleaning inside the machine, removing dust and mould. Reassemble in reverse order

Rear diff problem


The only place you did not mention is the pinion seal (at the yoke where the driveshaft connects) Any leak from a differential should be fairly obvious...clean everything off well and drive it, You should see seepage somewhere. Any grease on the wheels or new fluid where you cleaned will tell you where to look. If it is at the pinion seal, If you haven't done this before, don't...you can disturb the adjustment inside the gear case and damage the gears.

Kenmore 64942300 Electric Dryer runs, no heat


This may seem too simple of an answer based on your extensive troubleshooting thus far, but the most common reason for cold air running of any electric dryer is a broken heater coil. This is simply a coil of wire that is heated to warm the air in the fan duct. These often overheat and break if the vent duct is blocked, too long, or has odd bends that can restrict flow. Recommend replacing heater coil and use smooth wall vent pipe. Avoid coil type flexible duct.

How do i change the spark plugs in a triton v-10?


All the spark plugs are located beneath each coil pack. The coils are located on the top of the engine next to each fuel injector, above each cylinder, through the intake manifold. you need to open the "dog house" engine cover in the cab. You will have to remove the intake hosing back to the throttle body from under the hood. then you'll have to access each individual coil pack by removing the four nuts(13mm hex) that hold the coil/ injector harnesses (and any wiring that might impede access), both from outside and inside the vehicle. The coils are each held down with a single bolt (7mm hex). once you unplug each coil from the wiring harness and remove the bolt, you'll be able to remove each coil to access the plugs. There is a special "Triton" spark plug socket sold by Snap-on Tools, but you can remove each with a regular 5/8" plug socket and 6" extension (and a little determination). When you replace the plugs, I would recommend replacing the plug boots as well,and using dielectric silicone grease inside where contacts are made to the coil and plug . Check for corrosion on the contact inside the coil, where the spring inside the boot attaches to the coil. Clean the contact points, or if too corroded, replace the coil( usually only in extreme situations). Replace everything in reverse order of removal. Hope this helps

Kenmore 23.1 cf Chest Freezer not cooling below 14F


Make sure everything is working, I.E. compressor, fans. Now I need to know if the freezer shuts off at 14 degrees, or does it continue to run without making temp. If it shuts off, then the first place to look is the thermostat. It may be out of calibration. If it continues to run, then the solution may be as simple as cleaning the condenser coil. or the defrost has malfunctioned somehow. Defrost probleams will cause excess ice on the inside coil. You may need to remove the panels to see how much ice is on it. It sounds like the compressor is good, as it is pretty cold. Just not cold enough. A deep freeze should be at least 0.
