Mine broke too.. I contacted Seal-a-meal, and for my machine, they don't make replacement parts anymore. BUT, here's what I did and it works great. I place a chopstick across the length of the lock and seal nozzle...I use a little scotch-tape to hold it in place.. When you shut the lid, it applies enough pressure to the nozzle, to start pulling air out of the bags. I do have to lean or push down hard on the lid, to get it to lock into place, before sealing, but the chopstick works wonderful...I am not going to buy a whole new seal-a-meal when this works so terrific. In fact, I just seal-a-mealed 8 bags of beans this afternoon. Try it before you go out and buy another machine.

How do I remove the cage on this fan to get to the blades


look carefully at the edge of the cage, there are several different mechanisms for holding the cage together. one could be a small screw on the very bottom of the cage this can be loosened and then the front of the cage can be pried off the rear of the cage taking care not to damage any of the clips. another mechanism is hinged clips which can be swung away from the cage, sometimes requiring the use of a needle nose pliers if very tight. Some of the old Patton fans have metal prongs and these can be gently pushed in while removing the front of the cage. Basically you look carefully and figure it out. Refer to the manual which one can usually search for online.

How do i get the fan blades off the motor ? This is a Emerson silver swan .


HELLO - is the fan cage held on by 4 or so clear small clips along the body? If so carefully undo the clips and remove the fan's protective cage in front and back, set those 2 main pieces aside.

Keep the small clips 'taped' to a sheet of paper that is marked 'fan clips', taped to the paper with clear scotch tape. So you DON'T lose them (better than placing in your pocket ... ).

Then look at the body of the fan where the blades ARE mounted. There is a large button or front cover like part . Try unscrewing to the left left is loose - right is tight, is the rule to follow. The knob or cover should loosen ...

When that is completely loosened pull it off, and voila!

The blades will be on a single casting of plastic. Or perhaps metal -- that comes off on a thin rod or pin. that has a small bail or ball that will 'click' (or lock / unlock) in forward or reverse as to a pull on / off function. Pull that blade assembly forward UNTIL it clears the fan housing completely.

WASH with mild soap. dry completely & Then with "ALL CLEAN" - reassemble =

replace in reverse steps from before. and ENJOY! (COOL AIR, hopefully).

I have never heard of a fan that had the cover 'screwed' on (with screws) as to a front casing like a nose or giant knob. giant dial with logo like covering. Most if not all were as I described to you. The fit is made to only go so far as to the nose, giant knob, giant dial, etc like cover assembly. They are not really made to 'over or undertighten'.

I am hoping this is all you need to know ... Good luck!

How do I clean a Hawaiian Breeze tower fan?


Unplug fan. Lay the fan face down. Remove the four screws holding the stand to the base. Slide the stand all the way off the cord. Look at bottom of fan and find the small half circle indent just to left of center. There is a screw there, remove it. Go to the hand grip at the top of the back and pry out the two white rubber plugs to reveal two more screws, remove them. Back cover can now slide downward. May take a little squeezing at the center of the grille where internal clip is. Remove two screws at top of squirrel cage. Turn squirrel cage and loosen screw at bottom collar on motor shaft. Tilt the top of the squirrel cage outward slightly and slide upward to remove the squirrel cage. You can slip upper metal bracket off and set aside. Motor is held in by two screws, remove them and flip motor out of the way. There are two screws below where motor sat that hold in base of front grille, remove. Front grille has a series of clips along edges, carefully pry them inward from bottom to top and push grille gently outwards. You can now clean the rear grille, front grille and squirrel cage in warm soapy water and allow to dry. While they are drying, use a vacuum and dust rags to clean interior. When parts are dry, reinstall front grille and reinstall 2 screws. Reinstall motor with two screws. Turn motor shaft so flat notch is pointing up. Recommend to spray a tiny bit of WD-40 or a tiny dab of moly grease on shaft at top of squirrel cage, then replace upper bearing bracket on top shaft. Slide collar end of squirrel cage onto motor shaft and align screw with shaft flat and tighten. Reinstall two screws at bracket at top of squirrel cage. Align back cover just a bit toward bottom, then slide upward and clips will snap into place. Reinstall two screws in hand hold area, then reinstall screw at bottom of cover at half circle notch. You'll need either a magnetic tip screwdriver or a pair of long needle-nosed pliers to get screw in hole before tightening. Feed cord back through base and reinstall 4 screws. It took me about half an hour to do this whole process on each of my two Hawaiian Breeze fans, but they now look brand new and run very quiet.

Need help with my whirlpool dyer a white wheel came off dont know were it goes


The small white plastic white wheel goes to the idler pulley. It is located to the left of the burner assembly on the bottom cabinet behind the blower fan assembly. This is what keeps the belt tightly around the drum. There is an excellent illustration of this at pcappliancerepair.com. Just type in your model number and look for item 13 under the "Cabinet Parts" heading. The idler pulley attaches to the idler bracket (item 39).

There should be a small triangle shaped retaining clip that keeps the pulley in place on the shaft. It is known as a "tri-clip". If the clip has broken off, you can purchase replacements at pcappliancerepair.com for about $3. The part number is 690997. There is also a thrust washer on the idler shaft. The part number 233520. Make sure it is still in place.

If the pulley needs replaced, the part number is 279640 and it comes with the thrust washer and tri-clip retainers for about $14.

To access, remove the toe panel directly below the door and remove the air blower assembly cover. Make sure you UNPLUG the dryer while servicing the cabinet interior. Dangerous voltage is still present while the unit is turned off. You should be able to reach behind the drive motor and find the spring activated idler bracket. The wheel mounts on the back side of it with the thrust washer installed first, and the tri-clip inserted last. Refer to the parts drawing for details.

NOTE: Without the tension on the belt, the idler bracket will trip a small switch that prevents the drive motor from running. This is known as a "broken belt switch" that keeps a broken belt from wrapping around the motor shaft and burning. So, if your dryer is running, this is why. You should be able to hear the switch toggle as you move the idler bracket up and down.

For details on how to reinstall your dryer belt, go to repairclinic.com and click on the "Repair Help" link. On the following page, click on the "Dryer Belt Diagrams" link under the "Special Features" section. Locate the Whirlpool dryer belt link and refer to diagram K.

If you have questions, please let me know. I hope you find this information helpful.
