Tighten the adjusting screw with the two nuts loose but snugon the middle of the chain on the top of the bar. Tighten the chain screw until the chain is loose enough to raise the chain up about 1/2 inch then tighten the mounting nuts tight. Then see if it is ok.
This model comes with two types of doors. One with a single panel with integrated control on top or a two part door with control unit in front. The handle varies.
If you have a single door panel with handle bar across from right to left then you need to carefully unscrew the back panel screws and free up the front panel. the handle is screwed to the front panel from inside. Once you tighten carefully put the back door panel in and tighten. Take photos along the way to make sure you get back where you started. Also unplug dishwasher before working on it.
If you have a two part door with front control then handle and access to it is different. See diagram on this website for blow up of the panel and location of handle (part 713).
The part that holds the handle bars on is called the Head-set this should have adjustment screw/screws they may have a small plastic cover over them to prevent rust. They are usually require an Allen wrench to tighten them. If they become loose again then get some locktight and use this on the handle bars and the threads of the bolts before you tighten them up.
Two things. 1 Make sure the adjustment pin is up against the slot in the bar and 2 Make sure the bare is getting oil. The oil lubricates the chain and cools it down, as the chain cuts it heats up causing the chain to stretch.
The harware on the top of the handle bar are rivets, there is no way to really tighten these. It is possible that there is a broken mechanism in the handle bar causing it be loose. The only solution for that is replacing the handle bar. If you need assistance getting a replacement part please email me directily at [email protected]
Are the forks bent in any way? slight dents will cause bars to not tighten as will over tightening the allens on the bars. Remove the allen clamps that go around the fork and check for damage. If you need to remove be careful as to how you remove throddle cable and grip. Allens or screws and label. Then you can raise the bar over the end of fork. My bet would be a striped tread or dent and not the drop bar.
You need to install a shim so the bolt has more to clamp on. To do this, loosen the bolt you have been tightening enough that you can pull the handlebars out, then about 3 or 4 more turns. Get an empty soda can and with a pair of scissors, stab into the side of the can near the bottom and cut off the bottom end. Then cut about 2 inches up and cut around the can so you have a roughly 2 by 5 inch strip of aluminum. This is your shim (you may have to trim some length if it doesn't fit). Wrap it around the bottom part of the handlebars where it will go back into the part where the bolt is. Make sure you wrap it tight or it will be hard to put in. Slide the handle bar with the shim on it back into the other tube and tighten the bolt. The end.
sure , if you look underthe handle is there perahps a small screwhole in which you can tighten handle??this may be prior year in which case if there are no screw holes present you need to grab hold of handle and with a "brisk" pull to the right it will come off hiddenclips, the clips can be t ightened and resecure by snapping back the oppisite way the handle pullled off
