I need to replace the spring-loaded lighting cover for the light in the tub

1

This was my fix, my machine that would error out with DC/UC codes.

I just did a repair on my FAV6800AAW by lubricating the needle bearings in the clutch pulley hub, the tub displacement sensor checked OK per the service manual check. I was getting dc/uc errors in the spin cycle, washer was purchased in 7/05. I have basic mechanical skills and used a socket wrench to remove clutch pulley, just follow the service manual removal steps to remove the clutch pulley. Pull the plastic cover off the clutch pulley and inspect the spring, clean/lube needle bearings and the clutch hub coupler that drives spinner shaft. I used WD40 I may need to re-lube down the road with a good light grease. It took a few tries for me to get the clutch pulley to stay on after re-install and power up, getting the clutch pulley seated properly is the trick. I did not remove the washer tub for this fix, I believe I saw a posting where someone did. I just leaned the washer back to get a better reach...

Hi, I'm Ron Duncan with House to Home, and today I'm going to show you how to replace a canister light fixture with a new one. In order to do this, we're going to need side cutters, straight blade screwdriver, a Phillips Screwdriver, wire strippers and three yellow wire nuts. The first step that we need to take as with any circuit that you're working on is we need to disconnect the power at the circuit breaker. In order to demonstrate how to remove the existing fixture and install a new one I have instructed a mock up. This is the underside of the drywall, this is the canister or also a recessed fixture. First I'm going to unscrew the light bulb. I'm going to remove the trim cover and that leaves me with a canister. I'm going to, next I need to remove the spring loaded clips and pull out the can. So now I have removed my fixture from the existing ceiling and have exposed the incoming power. I disconnected my hot from the incoming hot. I disconnected my neutral from the incoming...

1) If the machine has a dryer stacked on top of it or is positioned in such a way that it would be too much bother to move, just leave it where it is. However, if it is possible, it would be easier to do this job if the machine could be leaned. If leaning it back is not possible, then a 6 or 8 inch block of wood will be handy to use to wedge between the front panel and the tub to hold the tub back out of the way.

2) The boot is attached to a lip around the perimeter of the opening in the front panel and is glued on in spots about three inches apart, all the way around. Use a razor blade as shown in illustration #1 to carefully slice the glued spots on the boot away from the front panel.

3) Once the boot is loose from the front panel, push it into the opening of the tub and out of the way as shown in illustration #2. At this point, if the machine is not leaning back, take your block of wood and while pushing back on the tub through the opening, wedge the block between...

I am a hair dresser, and after I would have someone get highlights in their hair, I would often have leftover bleach. Not wanting it to go to waste, I would clean my white tile floor and grout…it worked great. Then, I had some yellowing and some rust stains on my countertop; I used it there too. Recently, when there was the rusty/orange-colored stains on my hot tub, I used it on there; hot tub looks brand new!!! You can pick it up at any Sally’s Beauty Supply. Get the powder bleach (I think it comes in small trial packages) and a peroxide to go with…maybe 20 vol. Follow the directions on the package for mixing. You will need rubber gloves. Test in a small area, leave on for a minute, then wipe off; it may need more time, play around with it. It should work on the rubber on your fridge, and the plastic on the stove. Don’t leave it on too long. After wiping it off, make sure to rinse any residue off with PLAIN water; I would rinse it a couple times just to be sure there is no residue...

The hot tub blower provides the champagne-like air bubbles that make a Jacuzzi or spa come to life. Hot tub manufacturers do not make their own blowers, but source quality components for this job. If the blower goes out, then it is usuallly best to replace the entire blower as the brushes and other parts can get worn down over time.

Causes of Blower Malfunction

The air blower takes in the cabinet air from your spa and blows it through dedicated air injectors into the spa shell. The air rises as bubbles in side the hot tub giving you that pringly sensation. Now water and air are mixing, so the challenge to hot tub manufacturers is to prevent the hot tub water from finding its way back into the blower.

This is done with a Hartford Loop which is a sequence of plumbing parts, part of which rise above the water line to use the gravity method of preventing water seepage back into the blower. Closer to the blower, a check valve, or one way valve is usually found in...

This article is written for the absolute novice who wants to put together a basic lighting kit for video work.

A lighting kit (unlike a computer or a camera) is an evolving thing. Accept this, and you’ll be all right.

What you buy today might lay unused tomorrow. You can never have enough lights, and every variable (every video production) alters your perception of what a lighting kit should contain. And of course, the more you shoot, the more you learn – this changes your aesthetic sense of what work for you.

No matter what the lighting scenario, there are some fundamental principles that limit your choices and ‘box’ you into specific options. You cannot circumvent these factors – they are issues imposed on you due to science or technology. You will face these problems even when you have ‘trucks-full’ of the best lights in...

You’re here because you are trying to replace a bulb and can’t. I had a similar issue some time ago and failed. I had to call a professional electrician. I have posted my research on this post. A lot of other people have provided their ideas, as well.

1) SCREWED TYPE : Remove the screws

IT IS UNLIKELY THAT YOU’VE GOT SUCH A SYSTEM, ELSE YOU’D NOT BE HERE.

Most dome ceiling lights have screws that

(A) screw in from the side to hold the dome in place or

(B) the dome has a metal frame that supports the glass dome. Ones with a frame generally have 2-3 screws through the frame that hold the frame to the ceiling flange. Metal “objects” on the frame should be screws. Unscrew them and the dome should come free. If they are not screws they may be some sort of decorative head on a threaded post but they should still unscrew.

1. Locate one or more flat-headed screws on the metal collar (the round part into which the globe is...

Hi BOBJINES, thanks for joining the community. I have to ask you if the entire fixture comes out and is there a brand name?

I'm not sure why your trim and glass bezel are affixed to the housing. The trim and glass should come apart from the housing. The trim and glass should only be held in with springs. If you could take a picture of the fixture that might help.

The only difference is how different style of light bulbs are installed. Such as screw in type, plug in type(pin) and G20 style which is a twist type.

I will look into this further and discuss with one of our master electricians. Also if anyone in the community wants to clime, please do.

I look forward to hearing from you. Again thanks for your question,...

How To Change Or Replace Underwater Lights and Bulbs For Swimming Pools And Hot Tub Spas

Lighting

Lighting is essential if the pool is to be used at night. External lighting of your pool, spa, or water feature is possible with a variety of high- and low-voltage systems. For installation and maintenance of external systems, it is recommended you consult your local electrician. For lighting the water from within, however, there are also a variety of options. This is where the water technician needs to be an expert.

Figure 15 shows a typical pool or spa light housed in a stainless steel conical shaped fixture, about 8 inches in diameter by 6 to 10 inches deep. The fixture is mounted in the wall of the pool or spa in a container called a niche.

Like the lights in your house, pool and spa light fixtures have a standard, screw-in socket for a bulb (in fact, your household 100-watt bulb...

Fluorescent ceiling lights are found in an increasing number of homes due to their energy efficiency and long life. Although tube life is far beyond traditional incandescent bulbs, they do require periodic replacement. Replacing fluorescent ceiling light tubes -- or those of any fluorescent fixture under cabinets or above bathroom sinks -- is accomplished in the same manner. The tricky part is figuring out how to remove the cover to access the fluorescent tube, but even this is a simple task once you know the basics.

Inspecting the Fluorescent Fixture and Cover Removal

Place a stepladder or step stool beneath the light fixture. The use of protective eye goggles and work gloves is recommended to prevent injury if a bulb breaks.

Inspect the fluorescent fixture to determine how the light cover is attached. Some covers are attached with metal side brackets anchored by screws, others lift out of place -- particularly in drop-ceiling installations -- and some...

Recessed lights use different trims to change the appearance of the fixture, or change the lighting direction. Open trims are often used in general lighting applications. These trims connect to the fixture with small, coiled springs. Closed trims, often used in bathrooms, and eyeball trims that direct the light connect to the fixture with torsion springs. These springs consist of a stiff V-shaped wire coiled in the center connected permanently to the trim. Over time, the springs lose tension and the trim sags. Replacing or adjusting the springs can tighten recessed lighting trims.

Open Trims

Turn on the recessed light at the wall switch. Turn off one 15- or 20-amp single-pole breaker at a time until the recessed light loses power. Turn off the wall switch to the recessed light.

Remove the bulb from the recessed fixture in the ceiling. Look inside the fixture and find the two trim springs. The springs connect the trim to the metal socket plate inside the...
