I had the same issue...as a girl I took clear nail polish and slathered it around the screw. I waited a few min then attempted to screw it back in. It still wasn't 'solid' but I turned the fan on low and that seems to have dried and tightened the Polish and it now works just fine

This just happened to us today. Our top lid was a little bit warped, so the lid strike wasn't "latching", more like striking, the button at the top of the washer to signal that it was closed. I figured it out after I replaced the drainage hose and realized that it didn't fix the problem. As I was getting frustrated, I used the screw driver that I had ...

I would use a high-performance 2-part wood filler (it's kinda like auto body filler). Overfill the area then shave it down with a Surform plane (a cheesegrater plane), then use coarse, medium, and fine sandpaper to smooth. That desk could present problems regarding paint, the surface (it looks like a shiny laminate) is designed for stuff not to stick to ...

I used rulers. I premeasured and predrilled holes for the mounting. Next, I added holes in the ruler above and below the properly measured holes. Through the above and below holes I strung gardening wire. I used ample wire. I cleaned up the hole with an exacto knife. At that point I slid the ruler into the wall through the hole (just large enough for ...

When I plugged it back in it chilled nicely, but didn't freeze. I'm not sure what you mean by "It didn't freeze". Are you indicating that you left some water in there for 48 hours and the water didn't freeze, or a freezer thermometer placed in there for several hours after the compressor stopped running read above 0C (32F), or just that you held your ...

The Intermittent "sputtering" is sign of a loss of power going into the motor windings. there is pretty much only two ways this happens, A: there is a short somewhere (plug, cable or switch) or B: the contact brushes are dead. If mild shaking of the grinder added to the sputtering, I would say its the brushes. This is an easy fix, since you just need to ...

You do not need a shower pan but you DO need slope to the drain. This can be achieved by either a shower pan or a built-up base. Shower pans are usually in specific sizes and it looks like you have a custom size shower so in your case a built up base is probably your only option. You can build up a base over your existing floor as adhesion to the floor is ...

I was in total agreement with Ecnerwal, that those bumps were to hold it in wall board. Finding this picture tells a different story: (notice the bumps and the threaded insert) My best guess is that up in the ceiling somewhere, is the rest of the part; those bumps thread into it, or you can just push (see, 4.a). Be gentle with it, those are 50 bucks. ...

I am not a painter but I have come in contact with this when I painted using oil base paint over latex base paint, or is it the other way around, any ways they do not like each other. If you can, sand the walls that are giving you the problem and repaint them.

The freezer provides the cooling for the refrigerator. The refrigerator settings usually just adjust vent ports from the freezer. Some units use just vent ports, other units utilize ports along with a fan. Set the fridge at midpoint setting then adjust the freezer setting until your stuff in the fridge no longer ices up.

You remove the old brick and rebuild the bottom of the mortise. If it was me, I would get a tile saw and cut a single rock that would exactly fit. Why use crappy brick, when you can use a rock that will last for a million years? If you cut the rock so that it exactly fits (and I mean EXACTLY to a hundredth of inch). Then you hammer the rock in tight and you ...

If those refinished stair treads are a common type type of hardwood such as oak, maple or beech you can get 1/4 inch thick plywood with an hardwood veneer on one or both sides. Looks like one sheet of the material would be more than enough to to make your riser skins. Precut the pieces to fit without fastening right away. When you cut them you will want ...
