SOURCE: replace rear turn signal bulb on 2007 H3 - driver side

1st::Unscrew the 2 screws that hold the light in.
2nd::Slide your hand behind the light and pull the light towards you. Make sure that you pull it straight, as if the h3 was driving away from you, so you dont break the two pins that are holding the light in...PULL ONE PIN AT A TIME!!!

Dont pull it to far away from the hummer as there are wires attached that need to stay attached.

3rd::turn the back of the bulb to unlock it from the lens...
4th:: slide the bulb out and remove thebulb by pulling it straight out.
5th::put the new bulb in, lock it back into the lens, then insert it back where you got it from,...

MAKE SURE you move the wires out of the way when you put the lens back in...they will get in the way and can be damaged.

SOURCE: replacing right side mirror

I can't say for sure with your car. On some cars, this cap just pops off with some pressure. On a lot of cars though, this cap is hooked (held back) by the door panel so that even if you got the cap off, you can't get it back in with the door panel in place.

On the inside trim, you can remove screws that are by the door handle, arm rest, under door and side of door and then gently pull back on the panel as there will also be retaining clips attached and you don't want to break them. You'll need to lift the door panel upwards in order to get it off the window ledge. Then you'll need to manipulate the panel and disconnect the door handle linkage from the door handle and disconnect the wiring for your controls. Then you can access the bolts that secure the mirror onto the door.

SOURCE: remove cover from air con wall unit

I went to Electrolux's web site, they don't even mention air conditioners... never seen one myself.
Sorry, other than my assumption that you have a through the wall unit, which implies a box that the unit slides into, doesn't seem to me that any more than four screws would be used to hold the plastic face cover on, try lifting upwards and out from the bottom, in case there are clips, but it may be a little tight just from sitting, good luck.

SOURCE: I have a MasterBuilt 28qt stainless Turkey Fryer.

I've got the same problem and it causes the safety switch on the heating element not to compress thus it want heat. I contacted Masterbuilt and they said due to that model being no longer in production ther were no parts to buy. I'm going to find a way to hold the switch down (maybe with a piece of duct tape) and continue using it as is I guess, I suggest you do the same unless you want to buy the newer model.

How to remove heating element


In order to remove the heating element of a Cuisinart deep fryer you need to do the following:

1. Unplug the fryer.
2. Tip the fryer and put the oil into a container.
3. Put the fryer on its side, with the open top over the sink and a bowl in the sink beneath it. Leave it this way so most of the rest of the oil can drain.
4. Wipe the inside of the fryer with a paper towel.
5. Put several layers of newspaper on the counter and stand the electric deep fryer upside down on top of the paper. You will see that there are rubber feet under the base held in by screws.
6. Remove the feet and screws and you will be able to take off the base to expose the electrical workings inside.
7. Locate the heating element which has wires leading to it. Start by removing the wires leading to it and then loosen up and remove the heating element itself.

How to cure a noisy fan ?


Hiya! These fan units are a royal pain in the neck!

What you need to do, is get to the fan unit, remove the motor from the blade (they usually have a twist and lock bracket held on by a single screw)

The motors for the blowers are just simple shaded pole motors but these often dry out due to dust, and heat over time.

The best cure is to unscrew the motor and pull the shaft and rotor off of the front and back bearings... clean the shaft thoroughly of any debris and set aside.
Then, you want some light sewing machine oil (easily obtainable in most fabric stores) and you want to drip it around the outside of each bearing so the oil absorbs into the pads around the outside of each bearing. Add a smidge of oil to the inside of each bearing too, before reassembling the motor.

Make sure the motor screws are as tight as possible, and then with a screwdriver handle or similar instrument, give the motor shaft a few taps on one side, then a few on the other (this will align the bearings correctly.
Before reattaching the motor, on the other side of the fan unit you will see a little round metal or plastic cover held in place by a rubber gromit. This is the access to the spindle bearing. Pop this cover off and replace the grease under it, add a bit of machine oil too if you like (it cant hurt) and then replace the cover.

Reassemble everything again, and test.

Looking for belt drive 2042 rail sprockets


Notes on replacing drive sprocket on Genie 2042 belt drive garage door opener.
The unit originally came with a cast metal sprocket disk with a plastic sleeve insert that formed the sprockets themselves. The plastic insert's sprockets shattered when I tried opening the garage door that had frozen shut with ice. Genie's service assistant was of no help, as she suggested that I remove the entire rail then call them back. Removal of the rail was totally unnecessary. I purchased an all metal sprocket designed for the 2042 from an on-line supplier. Neither the owner's manual nor on-line instructions were available to assist me. I followed these steps:
    1.With the door open, loosen the tension on the belt by turning the bolt in the tension assembly located on the rail opposite side of the motor. Slide the belt off the pulley and let the belt hang.
    2.The sprocket housing is located on top of the motor. Unscrew the two Phillips screws that hold the sprocket housing onto the motor assembly.
    3.Using a screwdriver, force the cover up. The cover is on a hinge-like appendage that is riveted onto the rail frame. With the housing pried up, the belt and sprocket can be seen.
    4.Pull the belt out of the housing to allow the old sprocket to be removed. Be careful to locate the black plastic bushing/spacer on top of the old sprocket and save it for the new sprocket.
    5.Install the new sprocket and bushing/spacer into the motor shaft along with the belt.
    6.Replace the two Phillips screws on the sprocket cover.
    7.Place the belt back on the tension assembly and tighten to manufacturer's specifications.
    8.If the motor won't run from the wall switch, the up/down limits need to be reset. The motor will move the garage door up and down using the control buttons on the bottom of the motor unit. Follow the manufacturer's instructions on setting the up/down limits, which include holding the "set" buttons for over 5 seconds once the garage door is in the desired up and down locations.

My oil filled radiator trips the mains after a few


Try changing circuits (plug into one not protected by the same breaker.)
While the heater element can fail in your heater, I have had to replace several breakers after only a few years use after they became overly sensitive.

Dishes on the top tray still come out dirty after washing


This is probably a clogged internal disposal screen. This is a relatively simple procedure that requires 2 tools. There is a screen behind the cutter in the built in disposal unit that gets clogged easily. You may want to order a new part before disassembly. To disassemble: You will need 2 sizes of torqs (star shaped) screw drivers and some patience in reassembly. Be sure to note how things are assembled before removing them. You do not need to unplug the unit to do this as you will be inside the unit and not around any exposed electrical components. Make sure the unit has been off for a while so that the heater element is cool. Remove the top rack by squeezing and sliding the plastic locks upward (on the ends of the rails) Then slide the rack out. Remove the bottom rack turn the center plastic retainer on top of the spray mast cclockwise (opposite most all other screws) and lift out main spray arm remove screw from back center water pipe (oblong flat 2 piece plastic unit on the back wall inside) and rotate it clockwise to release the tabs under the pump cover. Lift above a carefully move out of the way loosen and carefully remove 4 screws from the pump cover/ diverter/ screen unit and lift out exposing the top of the pump and motor housing (usually grey plastic) Locate the screw at the front left of the pump cover that holds down the disposal cover. remove the screw and note which groove the screen is in as well as the side of the screen the blade is on. Replace the blade/ screen unit or clean the old one (under a tap of warm water and with an old tooth brush) and reinstall it. Assembly is reverse of above. Note! Be sure locking tabs are under pump cover as before and you don?t drop the screw for the oblong water pipe!

Our heater has no power. It may well be a fuse


with the unit unplugged, and using an ohm meter check for continuity all the way to the heating elements. the cover comes off by removing 4 screws, 2 on each side. you are looking for bad connection/broken wiring. also check elements for resistance.

The Lakewood 5500 oil-filled heater has stopped working. When switched on, it's indicator lights come on but the heater doesn't heat. I looked for a fuse but found none visible. What must I do?


Similar problem here. But in my case, it was a blown fuse. There's an in-line fuse on the internal wiring of the heater. Take the control-side off (remove the bottom grey plastic bracket, then remove a sheet metal screw, then slide the whole assembly down off of the radiator). Where the elements go into the reservoir at the bottom of the radiator, the white wire should have an inline fuse connected to it. It will probably be covered with what looks like heat-shrink tubing. Snip, snip, and replace.

You have to take the box apart and clean the lens.Ok !
  1. The white plastic gear that moves the laser must make contact with the "motor". A bad contact here can cause disk read errors. Sometimes it looks Ok, but you may need to remove the lens and bend the white gear for good contact.
  2. The two rails on which the lens move must be very slippery - which can be lubricated with cooking or motor oil. Usually the holes where the rail is (on the right side of the lens) are dirty or you have to bore then out slightly, making the holes bigger.
  3. The lens uses little torx screw (black) that move the lens up and down on the rail. Usually the lens is too high and requires adjustment.
  4. Take the lens off these 2 rails and take the black plastic cover off. Turn the lense upside-down and you'll find there are 2 screws (silver, phillips or torx) that you have to remove to take the upper little lens off.
  5. Then you'll see a larger lens that is usually very dirty (this lens is a mirror to light). If that's dirty, it will give a disk read error. You'll have to take the little electric board off that you see on the other side of the big lens-mirror. It's probably dirty too, so clean it. Alcohol should work OK for this task.
  6. The lens bottom has 2 + 2 screws. You move the upper "little" lens up-down-left-right (this may require a special screwdriver)
  7. The motor "rail" that moves the lens must be very clean and oiled and the 2 rails too.

CANON IP 6700D ERROR6A00


  1. Problem similar on canon ip4300 was solved by removing semi dry ink from black sliding rail. White plastic slide was stuck to the right side (spring was still stretched when printing head I moved to the left). Slide the white plastic slide to the left and clean the rail. This slide must be free to move left and right.
  2. See pfoto for details.919ba43.jpg
