F&P Smart Drive #703 trouble

I had trouble with what seemed to have been the bearings getting seized up, so I changed them myself and followed the instructions in th manual as close as possible however there is no changes to the response from the motor. When spinning it by hand it seem that it is very hard to and when I reassembled the Rotor into the Strator, I noticed that more I was screwing the rotor more it was getting hard to spin it.Seems that it sounded like the magnets were stopping it to spin freely.If I screw the Rotor half way is course then it would spin freely. If I start the machine with such a hard turn on the Strator, the beeper would start as soon as the motor is engaged to spin. I can't find the reason why would the magnets on the Rotor creates the hard-to-spin situation. Please, help! NB.: By-the-way, the note in the Manual about the Radial Movement of the Strator indicating that the Strator is correctly not feasable. Cheers

How do I remove rear wheel on 07 suzuki dry 125

It sounds like the axle (bolt) is corroded/rusted inside the wheel. If this is in fact true you need to carefully drive it out with a proper (best a brass, to avoid axle etc damage) punch and as that will damage (brinell) the wheel bearings you would then have to change them also. Many manufacturers advise to apply anti-seize to the axle when it is installed but on many which I have disassembled with seized axles they were so lubricated and it appears that if you use bearing grease instead there is not axle corrosion and seizing.

Hi There.
sounds like your release bearing has either collapsed or seized, either way you will have to drop the gear box and check it out... should'nt be a problem on a 1999 fiesta. just be careful not to pop a drive shaft and lose the transmission fluic on the floor.
Good Luck

Fisher Paykel washing machine Smartdrive 703 Advance, Power and Start buttons are non responsive when pushed. Is there a part that can fix this. Does the control panel have to be replaced?

Fisher & Paykel Smart Drive beeps and stops during rinse cycle. If I hit pause and wait and restart it eventually continues. It seems like it has problems detecting water level.
