Q:

The adapter vent tube #318317100, for built in electric oven #79040522(640 or 400):

A:

That part is shown in the image below. It fits over the exit vent for the oven cavity. It will slightly reduce the flow of air and smoke out of the oven during the bake mode, broil mode or self clean cycle. If that part has fallen out of the oven, then you may be able to insert a new one yourself. I don't have specific information on how to replace that component. You may be able to push it into place from inside the oven cavity. If not, then you would need to shut off the house circuit breakers for the oven to completely disconnect electrical power and pull the oven out of the cabinet. You would then need to disassemble the top of the oven to access that vent tube and the top of the oven cavity. I don't recommend that you attempt that type of repair yourself. Here is a link for the Sears Service website: Sears Home Services .

You should be able to run the self clean cycle with that component missing. I recommend that you clean out any excessive spills before running that self clean cycle. You may notice more smoke coming out of the oven during that self clean cycle. You will need to adequately ventilate your home and protect your pets and birds during that cycle. I do not know of any danger that would be caused by operating the oven normally without that vent adapter in place. I do recommend that you replace it (or have a service technician replace it) as soon as possible. If you can wait until you replace that component before running the self clean cycle, that would be better.

I hope that this information helps. If you need more assistance, let us know.

Q:

craftsman 9" drill press ....

A:

To make the instructions more simple go to www.searspartsdirect.com to pull up a parts diagram or use the one in the owners manual.

Lower the chuck to the lowest position and use a plastic hammer, hard rubber hammer, or a regular hammer and a piece of wood to drive the chuck off the quill shaft. The chuck should drive off fairly easily.

Remove item 36 by removing items 19A and 20. Remove items 15 and 16, 17 and 18, and items 6, 7, and 8. Remove item 21, and item 56 also.

Remove the belt from the pulley then remove the nut that holds the pulley and remove the pulley.

You should be able to remove the quill now. You might need to clamp a pair of vice grips on the shaft and tap down on it to remove the quill and shaft.

Q:

Parts for 9" Disk Sander

A:

Thank you for your question.

I have pulled up the model you have submitted. The disk is aluminum. I have searched for the arbor size but it is not listed. I will try to find the shaft on Monday when the manufacture is open. If you need to know the shaft size quicker, you can remove disk and measuring the shaft.

Please let me know if you come up with the shaft size before I do.

Thank you for using Manage my life.

Mark T.
