Striker Not Working. New Problem, now.

Thanks again for your answer on the striker not coming forward. But have new problem, keeping me from getting to the striker problem. Before I took it apart, keyboard would control things like it should, return, space bar, etc. Being careful, the ribbon cord to the keyboard still slipped out the slot. When I put it back in, the daisy wheel assembly goes to the left, the drive gears bump and grind a couple of seconds, then stop turning, and a signal beep happens. The only way to stop the signal is to turn off power. I have ttied and tried to put this keyboard ribbon cable in, 15-20-times, and still, the print assembly goes to the left, gears grind few seconds, then alarm. I am positive the ribbon is in good. No visible tears or rips in it. Took whole keyboard apart, and all looks good. Yet, it acts like it just does not know where to stop at, like no more margin sets. Any ideas?

I did get the top correction tape cover off striker assembly and looked at cam that moves striker, and also at solenoid in bottom. Nothing seems out of place or missing. And, for all I know, it may work, "if" it would go back to traveling to left margin and stopping, and act right. It just seems like it is same with or with out keyboard ribbon attached, striker assembly continues to left till gears rum out of teeth to turn on, then grinds and jumps few seconds, then stops, and beep alarm sounds.

Secretaries lost instruction manual. I was looking for how to set margins, and what ever else I could find. Thanks for your help.

One very important thing with Brothers typewriter, If the keyboard is not locked in place under the catches, it will not complete the home cycle. In other words when the carriage returns to the left it will cycle and then beep usually continually. The reason the carriage stop time switch is attaced to the keyboard not the side frame. You might look at that....Could be other problems too. keep in touch

How do I remove the door striker that is glued to the door.

Good Afternoon Friend,

I understand that you are trying to replace the door striker on your Frigidaire washer, model# ATF6000ES. The door striker should only be held on with 2 screws. Take the 2 screws off and you should be able to replace the striker. I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if your washer status has changed successfully. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

Trunk won't close

If after every re-adjustment the trunk close only to refuse to close after sometime, it is posible that striker is not tight enough and probably shifting after some uses. It is likely also that the threads on the bolts or screws are worn lightly. If posible try using a spring washer or some threadlocker medium strenght.

1989 s10 blazer the door handle broke off we went threw the window to unlock the door. We lost the small spring that unlatches the door from the frame. I got the door finally open with a screw driver....

the interior trim will come off to gain access to the lost part. Get a telescopic magnet which will retreive this part. If it is the striker the latch hits and keeps the door safley shut That is what I think your refering to. The striker bolts to the B pillar which keeps the door shut. Also the striker should cost no more than $15 to 20 $$ to replace. Maybe less

Jeep does not start but makes a fast clicking sound. What is it?

Clicking sound is the starter solenoid again and again pushing the starter motor armature forward against the toothed outer edge of the flywheel. Check the heavy cables and connections from the battery to the starter motor and the earth strap from the engine back to the frame. If everything is OK then remove the motor and examine the electrical striker plates inside the motor will have to open the motor up on the bench. The striker plates are copper and when the solenoid pushes the armature the contacts hit the striker plates allowing heavy current to be drawn by the starter motor to crank the engine over. These striker plates wear out. Fortunately there are cheap kits that allow you to replace the striker plates. Once fixed the motor should last a good number of years. One pece of advice, clean the motor interior if you feel you have to but do not lubricate anything, it only attracts the dirt and this will kill the motor in short time.

Striker Sticking When Erasing. Brother ML100 Typewriter

Sounds like the gears you cleaned may be dry and sticking, spray a little WD40. or that gear on the right side is still out of time. I think there is a spring clutch in the gear train which may be bad. One secret to repairs is to perform the same actions that you want the typewriter to do by hand and watch closely. You may see something not movving, or moving slow that under power you won't see.
