The easiest way to set the moon dial is to find out when the last full moon was, then turn the moon dial by hand to where the moon is straight up under the 15, then move it clockwise on click per day since full moon. If the last full moon was last Fri., and today is the following Tues. then you would move it a click for sat., one for sun, one for mon. and one for Tues. If you try to turn the dial, and it resists, wait till a couple hours later. Hope this helps

Clock oil, and a very small drop on each bushing, and pivot not on the gears in between the plates. Do not get oil on the hair spring if it has a balance wheel escapement. After oiling it's good to wiggle each gear back and forth to work the oil in. Good Luck in your adventure.

Much depends on the type of cistern fill valve and where the knock is emanating from but generally the cause is wear in the valve operating mechanism resulting in a tendency for it to "dance" or oscillate while filling which causes the closing of the valve not to be "clean" or instant.
This causes a series of pressure waves in the supply pipe which if not well secured along it's length will move a little causing the knock(ing) or even a buzzing sound.
This can be more pronounced when the water pressure is high and the cistern being filled at high pressure can create powerful swirl and ripple currents within the cistern causing further wear and oscillation.

Some types of valve such as the Torbeck diaphragm type is not really suitable for a high pressure fill and these are supplied with an in-pipe restrictor to reduce the flow, thus overcoming some of the problems. Most people choose not to fit the restrictor.

That happens in every house. Do you have a thermostatic valve? If you do, it probably needs replacing. If you don't, you can fit a booster pump to hot and cold supply to the shower to keep the pressure constant.

Remove the pendulum give the side a gentle tap. The pendulum carrier should move very fast and wind it down pretty fast.

The flashing red light is designed to notify you in the event that
a problem has been discovered by flashing the light on the base unit.

Before resetting the unit. First, check the blanket/mattress
pad for visual damage.
If no visual damage is found, unplug the system from wall outlet.
Check that the base unit is well connected to the module. Plug the power cord into the wall outlet. Set the base unit to "On." If the system still does not operate after two or three times trying to reset, disconnect the power cord and get it checked out by a specialist!

The part is available here. Or you could weld a piece of steel rod to it and then re-thread it and put a new washer and nut on it. If only the thread is damaged, you could re-thread a smaller size and use a smaller nut

Most horologists, over time, collect a large assortment of clock hands and such sites as eBay could have them. Unlikely you will find exact duplicates but you should have little trouble finding some that will fit.

Look at the bottom of it, if it is more than 10 years old it needs replacing. If not, try vacuuming it with the brush and crevice tool of your vacuum cleaner. Also try a NEW set of Duracell batteries. I recently bought some 99 cents Panasonic from the supermarket and they lasted 2 weeks in an electric toothbrush where 2 x Duracell last 6 months!

This appears to be an combination Microwave and oven! So I changed it from the Cars and Trucks Category. I also edited your text properly into a real question with 'make model (what it is) as required in all questions here on Fixya.

If that part is in the top or the rear, it is the part that hold the fan. If it is the bottom it holds the turntable, but unlikely as those metal bits either side look like the element.

If you saw sparks, it could be two things

1. The element just burnt out, they spark as they rupture and blow. It would also explain the slow cooking


2. it is all the muck in there, combi-ovens need to be kept spotlessly clean.

Nothing in a microwave is easy to replace, because of all the security screws. The microwave side has enough voltage (10,000volts DC) to stop your heart in the Capacitor and microwaves can blind you in 15 seconds.

Need to get a replacement cartridge, most are ceramic and the slightest scratch causes leaks. Not repairable I'm afraid.

Try manually making it tick until spring release, or you can just release spring totally.
