I have a Homedics SBM-300. Dog chewed through all 10 wires on the remote. Easiest way to splice wires back together?
Best solution is to replace the cable and possibly the dog. If you insist on repairing the cable I suggest you get a length of fine heat shrink tubing and cut 10 pieces about 1cm long. Then cut each end of the cable to give a clean end. Strip about 2cm of the outer insulation from the two cable ends and then strip about 1cm from each of the 20 inner wires. Then using a soldering iron tin each of the bare ends. Slip a piece of the heat shrink that you earlier cut over each of the wires and then solder the wires together ensuring that you match the colours correctly. Move the heat shrink over the bare solder joints and use the hot soldering iron to shrink the tubing. Finally cover the whole joint with insulating tape.

I need to know how to put grease in a electric motor for a homedics samurai ultra shiatsu massager model sm666
Electric motors rarely need lubricating and when they do it must be done sparingly and with great care and the correct lubricant used due to the possible safety dangers, including fire..
Often an electric motor is integral with a gearbox which also tends to be prefilled with whatever lubrication it needs for it's lifetime. Sometimes, but rarely, this will need attention and a little further lubrication. Mostly this is the result of a necessary repair or adjustment.
There needs to be a compelling reason to open such a gearbox and again the correct lubricant must be used and then the integrity of the sealing maintained.
