Norelco 8140XL motor gear assembly

You will find partial instruction to disassemble the shaver at the link below. You will also need to remove the gear plate by removing the two screws in the hair chamber. Then just disconnect the wires from the motor by pushing in on the small metal release next to the wires on the motor while pulling on the wires

I have a poulan 850 that runs great. Gears engage and gos forward and back but wile tilling it made a click and the tines no longer engage. It's been suggested that it's a shear or breakaway pin....

Yes, there is a gear and pinion that drive the tines. Either a pin has sheared or teeth have broke off the gears. Either way its internal. You will need to completely disassemble the unit. Before you disassemble the unit locate and record the model and serial number from the chassis and the model, type, and code of the motor, you will need these numbers to purchase replacement parts. Remove the motor, tines, wheels, all shields, handles, etc. Until you are left with just the gearcase. Then you will need to split the gearcase. Lay it on its side on blocks so that it is stable and level. Remove all the fasteners and remove the top side. Take your time it will be hard to seperate the halfs to start with. Once the cases are split you will be able to identify the failed part and replace them. Good luck

Shift shaft is broken. Do I need to split the cases to replace it?

Whether it is a four stroke or a two stroke, If you take the right crankcase cover off you should be able to access and replace the shift shaft. The mechanism is on the opposite side of the motor from the shift lever. You may have to remove the primary gear that contains the clutch pack to get the actual shift shaft assembly to slide out. The good news is you should not have to remove the engine from the frame or split the cases to do the job.

I need to change the gear shift that broke off in the transmission do i have to split it open all the way to change it

Craftsman tillers usually use a chain drive transmission. Sears does not usually offer individual parts for these transmission. They want you to replace the entire trans assembly. If the gear shaft is available ( , then yeas, you would have to split the case all the way open to replace it. This is not an easy job. Most major repair shops would charge 4 or 5 hours of shop time for this repair. It generally requires complete dissassembly of the tiller to remove the transmission.

You did not give a model # for your tiller, so I am only giving you general solutions. Please look up the parts. Many times it is more cost effective to replace your tiller than it is to repair it. Remember that all of the other gear shafts are the same age as the one that broke and have been through the same stresses.

Good luck!

Why do the plastic drive gears underneath the shaving head keep breaking off? Thisis the third Norelco 8140Xl this happened to.

If this is a repetitive problem for you, there must be a reason. Most likely, the blades are getting jammed and this is causing the tips of the gears to twist off. To prevent this from happening, make sure that you disassemble the shaver heads and thoroughly clean the teeth on a regular basis to prevent them from getting clogged solid. Also, make sure that you are protecting the delicate combs of the shaver head to prevent them from getting damaged. If the comb gets damaged, the teeth on the blade will lodge in it and this can cause the gear tip to break off.

You can replace thesebroken gears. You will find the required part at See link below

I have a problem with code E020 (canon 1120)

E020 - The toner is not adding correctly into the developing assembly.
1) If toner hopper is overfull, the toner motor worm gear splits as a result of the hopper becoming packed tight. 2) If the hopper is 1/2 full or less, the worm gear splits under normal use.

1) Advise customer to add toner only when the toner light is lit, right away, and replace toner motor, or 2) Just replace toner motor (FH7-1762-030).

After verifying that the toner hopper is working properly, check that the web solenoid is activating. Clean the web solenoid and ensure free action. This has been known to clear an E020.

After verifying that all is well with the toner hopper unit, consider the DC controller. It has been noted that some DC controllers do not provide sufficient current to drive the hopper motor. Replace the DC controller COL97.08.25 M0000244.txt.

Gears stripped. can I buy the timer unit

The PB912M10 timer clock motor is not sold separately. Aug 2010.
If power pack transformer still works: buy cheap plug-in timer, set power pack to override, and plug power pack into cheap timer.
With receipt, power pack might still be under warranty.

Whirlpool quiet partner II top rack sprayer doesnt work

The top rack spray arm doesn't work because of low water pressure from the wash motor or it's clogged with debris.
If the top spray arm looks clear of debris, remove the lower spray arm and lower feed tube to access the wash motor. Remove the 4 torx screws and the filter (accumulator assembly). Remove the torx screw and the inlet protector that covers the chopper assembly. Make sure the chopper is not broken (broken chopper will fill with debris and block water flow). While holding the chopper blade, reach inside the "D" shaped opening on top of the motor and spin the wheel/motor by hand in each direction to make sure either the chopper gear or the motor gear that drives the chopper is not broken. Replace the chopper if necessary (part # 8268383). If the motor gear is broken, replace the sump and motor assembly (part # 8535150). Remove any debris from the sump area in the process.
You don't have to shut the power off to the dishwasher because the door will be open, but if you feel more comfortable, do so.
Good luck!

Gear box oil leak

Here is a website where a manual for you outboard may be purchased.  Outboard Marine went out of buisness in 2000 and thus no parts of origial manufacture are support is available . Therir are secondary markets .    THe Lower case splits in half and their is a seal around the prop shiftm which is pressed in. The seal between the cases are cut o-rings which are placed and glued into place with gasket seal.
The water pump is located where the case splits a little bit higher. You must open the little port on the side and take out one of the screws to the connecting shift linkage to split the case. After splitting the case the drive shaft and water pickup tube(s) wil come out of the powwer head or the tubs may stick into the power head which is ok. Place the lower skag into a vice and remove the 4 or 5 screws to the water pump housing. Remove and replace impellor and impellor plate if available. If part(pieces) of the rubber impellor is missing flush out the tubes and the power head to remove them.   When reinstalling the lower unit use a flash light to make sure that the tubes return  to the proper place in the power head and the shift lever is resecured. If you need more assistance, just write back. I was an Outboard motor mechanic for five years about the time of your motor.
