Which direction should dampers be in order for the air to flow down? I bought a new house and all the hot air seems to be upstairs while it's freezing in the basement.


If you look at the end of most dampers, there is a line on the end of the shaft. this line when it is in line with the duct it is open, and when it is 90 degrees to duct it is closed. for most damper and motor, when it rotates clockwise it goes to open. and counterclockwise it shuts. default position on zone systems is open, most damper motor spring return to open. There is a allen set screw that anchors the motor to the shaft. to set up the motor and shaft, turn power off, unset set screw and rotate damper ccw and reanchor the set screw, repeat for all damper and associated motors.

HOW TO OPEN HARRIS GARAGE DOOR WHEN SPRING SNAPS


In such a situation replace the spring assembly and shaft that it is attached to. Then determine how many winds you need to add to the windlass for spring tension to get the door to lift. Depending how the door track it is set up the outer wheels that take up the lift cable spool about 16 to 18 inches of cable per revolution. The spring gets tensioned by sticking a length of half inch/13 mm rod into 1 of the 4 tensioning holes of the windlass that are cast into the clamping end of the spring and turning tension onto the spring by way of that windlass to lift the door once the cables are attached to the door and then clamped into the wheels, once the approximately correct lift height has been cranked into the spring.One rod would need to be left in place to hold windlass firm until the set screw is tightened. Then you can put on a hard hat, unlock the door and lift slightly- the rod will fall out if you wound the spring the correct direction.and the door should rise again with ease.

Hello, I have a lewmar Concept 1 windlass that worked fine for May/June, then on vacation in July it started cutting out. If I let it sit for a minute, it would start up again, only to quit again after...


Check the brushes and if they are short just replace them.
This will solve the problem.
There is thermal cut out which will protect the winding if its hot and will stop windlass and after cooling down it can run again.

Anchor will not go down but will go up


I have two deckhand anchor units. I ve tested both on battery, and both went up. I replaced switches, and I get nothing, but I heard a light click coming from unit. Is the motor bad?

How do you put the drive belt for the hydrostatic drive on?


You'll be working underneath the mower, so it is helpful to raise the mower chassis up -- at least in back. Use your automobile jack, then put jackstands underneath the chassis to do this. Take off the deck drive belt first by releasing the idler spring(s). Unbolt and remove the "anchor" that keeps the PTO clutch from rotating. Disconnect the electrical wires leading to the PTO. Release the tension on the idler for the hydrostatic drive belt. Now you can thread the new hydrostatic belt over the engine pulley and around both wheel motor pulleys. The idler pulley presses it inward to provide tension. Refasten the idler spring - a pair of channellock pliers works well to hold and pull the spring. Now reinstall the wires and the PTO anchor, then the mower deck belt. Good luck! Please rate my answer if helpful, thanks!

Sprint 600 Vertical Windlass blows fuse


Is this the main fuse???
600watts motor on a 12V system drops 50amps...
You should have an 80 or even 100 amps fuse for the power cables!

Powerwinch windlass not working.


Of course, first check the voltage at the connections to the windlass. Have someone operate the switch while you measure with a volt meter. If no voltage check breakers, or fuses. Heavy current devices like a windlass will often require fuses near where they connect to battery power.


A windlass requires a LOT of current to run. Not just voltage. Trace the wires from the battery connection all the way to the windlass. If possible, loosen any connections (ex; a lug with a nut or bolt) and clean with a wire brush then reconnect. Be sure to disconnect the battery while cleaning. Many times wires will corrode past the insulation. Especially if they were not tinned wire to begin with (tinned wire has a silver shine, regular copper has a copper color and typically turns dark or even black when corroded).

Since a windlass requires a lot of current, often there may be a relay near the windlass that might go bad. Listen to see if this is activating while someone operates the switch.

I have a Lewmar Sprint 600 Windlass. It was working, however, my battires were low and there wasn't enough power to run the windlass. I think trying multiple times, I trick the breaker. I charged the...


I had the same problem this past weekend. Took the complete unit apart and found salt and all kind of moisture in the motor itself. It sure was not sealed very well from the factory. I am unable to find the motor sold separately, therefore I am taking my unit to an electric motor shop. I am guessing it will cost me about $100-$125 to get the motor reworked. It was extremely easy to take apart.

With the moisture in the motor, there was simply too much resistance for the windlass to turn, If you get your tension wrench and work the windlass back and forth, then hit the button. It should work temporarily.

Good Luck,
Tony

Creda tumble dryer repair


with great difficulty - these belts are so tight!there is a special tool for doing it but there are other ways
one way i have used is to make a spanish windlass from belt to bottom of machine. when belt is level with motor spindle, push belt on and release spanish windlass. could also try levering belt on with a screwdriver
another method is to get a short piece of tubing that will fit over motor spindle. put belt over tube, lever down and slip belt on. this is the best way
