"On" button The ON button broke and is pushed down into the unit. How do I get into the box to repair this problem?

    The button is tilted, but I didn't have any luck trying to move it back into position.

    I am a bit concerned about opening up the unit.

    Thank you for the link to the service manual.

    I was able to access the underside of the Power On button by removing the pc card slot saver on the left side of the unit.

    I don't know how long this fix will last, but it is working for now.

    Thank you for your help.

Is it cocked to one side?

You may be able to get it freed. Just leave it unpowered till you do. If is not cocked to one side it will have to be taken apart and fixed.

Here is the service manual, Good Luck.

Sears model 1150 snow thrower how repairing the electric connecter for sears model 1150 snow thrower


It's just a simple AC pronged piece. You can buy the actual piece from Sears OR you can buy an Electric Line-cord and wire it into teh plastic box where the Push button 'Start ' switch is.

The button that you push down to take a picture broke off?? how can i fix it


I'm afraid you can't. Special not when you have to open the camera. Better ask a Nikon certified repair shop, what it will cost and then see if you still want it repaired or you start saving for a new camera.

PULL CHAIN FOR LIGHT BROKE AND IS INSIDE THE UNIT. HOW DO I GET THE LIGHT UNIT OFF TO GET TO THE PULL CHAIN UNIT.


"PULL CHAIN FOR LIGHT BROKE AND IS INSIDE THE UNIT. HOW DO I GET THE LIGHT UNIT OFF TO GET TO THE PULL CHAIN UNIT."

My oh my!
I don't know of any shortcuts, and the working position does not make the operation a pleasurable one. Not in Summertime!

The time I had to repair that, I needed to pull the whole fan down. Once the whole fan was down, the rest was easy!

It's easier that it appears, but mark all the wires connected in the box.
There is USUALLY a steel cable attached to the fan assembly and the box, to prevent the thing accidentally falling on someone's head.

If you don't have a helper, taking the blades off may be a good idea, but don't take my word for that. Putting them back on was no picnic.

FYI. If you don't have any bead-chain handy, a suitable lenght of sash cord is probably the best replacement.

Craftsman Garage Door Opener Problems Going Down


It reversal of the door with the flashing lights is a normal function. It means that the door either didn't see the eye at the door bottom, or the force to close the door was to great. Both of these make the door reverse and go back up.
Just 2 months ago my spring broke. I had a guy out to replace and he found that the drive gear was almost broke off. I had tightened up the chain a month or two before this because it was sagging down far, and had noticed that it was sagging again when the spring broke.
So I had the gear replaced.
I'm guessing you have a similar problem. The drive gear is almost broke and the force to get the door down is too much so it reverses.
Gear cost was $119, so it was about 1/2 price of new opener.
But now with new spring and gear it's running quiter and slicker than I can ever remember it before.
Good luck!

Craftsman Garage door opener not working


First, check the springs in the actual door to make sure that they are not broke. Since you held the learn button down to reset the opener, you have to reprogram all of your remotes. This button only resets the remotes. It has nothing to do with the rest of the opener. To reset the opener, simply unplug it for a couple of minutes and then plug back in. Pull the handle on the door and see if you can operate the door manually with one hand. If it takes more than 15lbs to move the door, there is a problem with the door balance. If the springs are not broke and the door operates smoothly, the likely cause is the rpm sensor on the opener.
