ESTRO VAPORE I opened out the handle that opens the coffee. Have put most of it back together but am left with a tiny spring and a small plastic piece that fits into the spring. Where should it be placed?

I just took mine apart, and put it back together. Of the three holes for the screws, there are two smaller and one bigger hole. Align the larger hole on the filter and the base, and the tiny plastic bit and the spring go in to the larger, along with the hollow and larger screw.

I took the spout of the smoothie plus 600 apart and can't put it back together


When you say you took the spout apart and can\'t put it back together its only 5 total pieces. The spout, the spring, the handle, the dispenser (rubber insert with plastic stem) and the threaded cap which holds the dispenser and handle to the spout.

If you can\'t get the handle to re attach, that does not surprise me. This is very poor craftsmanship. The plastic nobs that hold the handle onto the dispenser tend to break off.

If this is your problem, you can either, buy a new one for $5 plus shipping depending on where you live OR

You can fix the part that broke.

All you would need is a Drill, a small piece of number 14 copper about an inch long and same size drill bit. Drill the handle as close to center where the plastic molded nobs were located that either broke off or worn away. Then drill with the same size drill the stem to the dispenser which has the rubber stop attached. Drill this as close to the top of the stem where the nobs would snap in to hold the handle in place. You are basically making a pined handle, which will outlast the quality of this blender.

NOTE: You want to use a drill bit about the same size as the number 14 copper wire.

Then with one hand hold the threaded cap with the dispenser placed into position through the hole, be sure to put the spring in, small hole to the bottom of the rubber dispenser, pushing the spring and dispenser up through the threaded cap, attach the handle by putting the piece of copper wire in your hole which will connect your handle to the stem of the stopper. The copper should be cut no wider thent the width of the handle, if it sticks out a tiny bit, that\'s ok. The plastic cap will simply be carved out where the copper rubs against it. After that, simply screw the handle cap back onto the spout and screw the spout back onto the blender making sure the two washers are still on the pitcher.

All in all, for someone who is handy, this should take about 10 minutes. I would rate it about a 5 out of ten for difficulty simply because you have to drill straight and centered in the handle where the nobs were. Other then that its easy and if you can have someone help you put the pin in place, it would also make it easier.

If for some reason the rubber stop does not seem to go back into the spout, make sure the rubber didn\'t role up onto itself. Also if the spout drips, you didn\'t either put the spring back in or you didn\'t drill at the top of the plastic stem but some where in the middle, simply ream the hold towards the top where the plastic nobs would stop. Its a square reseated area in the stem. Looking at it you should be able to tell.

As for the spout instructions, you can download the pdf manual at the manufactures website: http://westbend.com/spl6white-smoothie-maker-plus-600.html

Hope it all helps, Its worked for me!

Tip

Maytag MMV4205 door won't stay shut.


After tearing apart my microwave, I found a little spring broke off the latches. Open the door to the microwave, pop off the plastic piece that the latches on the door go through. You will see a spring behind the latch. If the spring is not connected to the latch it won't operate properly. The spring was held onto the latch with a tiny plastic piece that broke off. An easy solution instead of buying a new latch is to heat up one side of the spring without burning yourself and melt it through the latch piece where it was originally connected then put everything back together.
Hope this helps,

How do I install a new Handle/Latch assembly on the door of a Whirlpool LHW0050PQ 4 Wash Machine...have to remove present one as broken---pull handle door catch does not release---have to release putting a...


I had to replace part No 8182408 - the washing machine door handle. There is a plastic bar in the middle of the assembly that broke because the door was opened too hard.

There are two springs, the latch, and the plastic piece that brings it all together. The smaller spring is the key, call it the L spring. It is shaped like an L and goes around the ends of the latch. The other spring is the larger and straight and goes around the tops of the plastic piece. The straight spring goes in with the crossbar facing on the outside of the washer. The latch with the L spring fits in between the plastic crossbar with the U shaped end pressing against the latches inside bar. The antenna of the L spring needs to wrap around the plastic bar and fit inside the straight spring bar. This applies pressure on the latch to stay closed. When the handle is pulled, it releases the pressure and allows you to open the door. The Metal bar is used to hold all the pieces together and once you have the alignment right, put it back into the door with the straight spring antenna tucked in the spots on the door, as well as the metal bar ends. Screw in the two spots that holds the assembly in place and you will be set. The door should open and shut easily.

My dear wife took the lid handle off our breville gourmet wok. The pieces include a screw, a spring and 3 other parts. Im not sure if i put it together properly. Could you help out. Thanks


This is for assembling the Breville Wok lid. This has a built in vent that lets steam escape during cooking. There are 8 pieces not including the glass cover: bolt, metal vent, black O ring, tan round plastic piece, black lid piece (has open/close) on it, spring, clear plastic seal, lid handle.
Order of assembly as follows, starting on inside of glass cover.1. Bolt.2. Metal vent piece sits on top of bolt.3. Black O ring fits snuggly onto of vent piece.Insert what you have assembled against inside of glass cover, bolt poking through topside of glass.4. Add tan plastic piece with 3 prongs going facedown against the glass hole of cover.5. Larger black lid piece goes next. You will need to line up the openings on tan piece and this lid piece so that it sits semi-flush against glass. When complete this piece will turn in place to open/close vent (less than 1/4 turn before stopping).6. Add clear plastic seal to underside of handle.7. Place spring between handle and top of black lid piece and screw together until snug.
Test lid by turning lid piece. It should move back and forth according to the open/close print on top. If no luck, go to step 5 and try again. It is a little tricky, but does work when done correctly.

Cuisinart grind and brew pot - door holding filter pops open during grinding/brewing.


There is a little cover over a spring. The loops of the spring go inside the screw that holds the cover. The spring ends are against the wall and a small pin connected to the button on the side. Keeps the button locked. Cleaning out dried coffee in the are may help and pam spray may keep it from sticking.

Lights on, motor running, does not do single/double shots


There is a tiny plastic one-way valve in the brass tube on the pump under the top cover that get calcified and stuck when not in use. I used a toothpick to get it out after disassembling the pump and its hoses. Slowly and carefully lay out your parts to reassemble the springs and washers correctly.

How do i open hanns g monitor?


#1 Remove the stand mount off the back of the monitor
#2 Remove the 4 screws in the corners of the monitors
#3 The monitor is now only held together with builtin plastic claw clips. They are connected to the back piece and hook onto the face piece. Use a flat object, I use a small screwdriver, to ress against the clip at the seam of the monitor. There are 3 clips down each short side, and 4 on the top and bottom. You can see a tiny marker showing each clip location at the seam. So press against the clip and gently pry the two pieces open holding it slightly open until you can spring the next clip....and so on, on each clip until it is open.
#4 once open remove the 4 lugs at the video connectors
#5 remove the two sheet metal screws.
#6 sit back realizing those clips hold the plastic together so well that screw are just overkill after that. :P

Sounds like its working, but nothing happens


I had the same problem with mine, it's due to the fact that the smaller spring has become un-lodged from the ******** itself.

You will need:
1. Roll of electrical tape.
2. Utility Knife
3. A small slot head screw driver OR a pair of needle nose pliers.

The solution is to unscrew the silver ring so that is can be moved up and down. Now, you need to use a utility knife and cut the blue rubber off of the spring. Once you have the blue rubber but off you can see a large spring with another smaller spring inside. Push the head of the ******** till the larger spring's coils are an 1/8 to 1/4 of an inch apart. Next take either the small slot head screw driver or a pair of needle nose and jam the smaller spring back into the hole in the center of the white plastic piece inside of the larger ring. Next plug it in to make sure the vibration is working, reattach the silver piece and tape the larger spring with electric tape.
