    I bought a new kamoto trimmer, and when i installed it, i probably missed something, and know i can't unscrew the head. I searched online but none seems that had my problem.:vs_mad:

    Hello, I can not get the cover off of the old the cartridge. It doesn't pop off or seem to unscrew. There are no little screws holding it in place. Not sure how to replace the cartridge if the top cover doesn't come off. Thank you for helping!

    I am having trouble locking our glass door. We moved into the house 7 months ago and the lock worked at first, but now I can't seem to get it to catch in the door jamb. If you open the door and turn the lock, it works but it won't catch. I've tried pulling the door inward, pushing it out a...

    I have a 13kw electric furnace that's been setup for 2 stage heating where the thermostat controls each sequencer. It has 2 6kw elements with a heat sequencer on each one (both on for high). Problem is after both elements are on for a few minutes there's too much heat behind the sequencers for...

    I have a diverter tub spout that failed and I tried to twist if off but it won’t budge. I know it is a threaded spout because I can’t find a setscrew anywhere on the on the outside. The diverter pull is positioned towards the back instead of the front. Everything I’ve researched shows that...

    Finally got around to changing that old laundry faucet. But of course, ran into a problem. I cannot get the union fittings to move at all highlighted in the picture. And before anyone says "I need to remove the nuts below first." I did that already and got stuck afterwards. This picture was...

    Soooo, got this valve stuck on but it's buried somewhere in a half-acre area. I've been looking for it for months to no avail (like Vern looking for his jar of pennies in the movie Stand By Me---I don't know whether to laugh or cry!) I have to shut it off from the PVB all the time and would...

    I've got a screen door out to my patio with a broken wheel and I can't remove the door to replace the wheel because the wheel is stuck (won't lower) so I can't remove it from the frame. I've included a photo — I was able to pull out the one side because that wheel is fine, but the other side...

    I removed the cartridge from my bathtub but when I tried to insert the new one it did not fit. When I removed the original cartridge I did not notice a small white plastic piece of the back housing had broken off and gotten lodge all the way in the back. Any ideas on how to remove it? I've been...

    Since we've moved into our house we noticed these "things" (not sure what they are) stuck on the walls outside. See the attached images. They stick pretty good to the walls and we have to remove each individual one by hand. However a few months later they've come back. We live in south...

    Hey all, I am trying to replace the filter in my GE smartwater GXWH08c and I for the life of me can't seem to get the housing off. I have turned off the water and used the pressure release button to remove the pressure from it. I have bough a strap wrench, and that isn't helping. I've tried...

    The white plastic brackets that you screw on the bottom of the faucet to secure it to the sink were apparently puttied/caulked onto the :censored: thing (ppl who did the plumbing in our house were not too bright). We've tried everything to get them off so I can replace the leaking faucet. Is...

    Hello. Four years ago I had a new double glazed PVC back door fitted in my kitchen. For a while now it has been tricky to lock - I have had to push the handle upwards enough to physically lift the door in order to turn the key to lock it. Last week I tried to open the door but it appears to be...

    I just bought a new house, and the old owner left her rubber drain hose (the black retake hose) for the washing machine. My washer has the drain hose coming into the body of the machine, so there isn't a place to clamp on her old hose. However, when I went to remove the old hose, it appears to...
