Pretty common problem - you need to get some MARINE grease for your grease gun and shoot the pivot grease nipples- some models had a special nipple that needed a gun from the marina- (so you could not put auto grease there)

Move it back and forth as you shoot the grease. I have used a torch to warm up the bits to get the grease to flow.

Also- if the motor is new to you- they have a friction of some sort on them to keep them going straight when you let go- you might want to loosen that befor trying to fix a problem that isn't there.

Have a look at the beginning of the tread, and it will become obvious that it is left or right hand.

Toilet handle sticks

It sounds like the nylon nut which holds the handle in place is too tight. Try loosening that nylon nut just a little to see if the handle moves easier. Sometimes if they are over-tightened, the handle will be stiff and hard to operate.

Vacuum hard to move on carpet

The key to getting an Oreck to move or push is to use as low and angle of the handle as possible. The more upright the handle, the harder the machine is to push (move). The lower the angle or the closer the handle is to the carpet, the easier it is to move (push). Use a straight stiff arm that is pointed down and move your arm at the shoulder with a near locked elbow.

Stiff cold water handle bathroom Hansgrohe

If the handle is hard to turn it is most commonly caused by water deposits in the handle or in the cartridge below. I would try removing the handle to ensure it turns freely when not installed on the faucet. If not you can clean it with CLR to remove the water deposits that are making it difficult to turn. If the handle turns freely when not installed you will need to remove the cartridge and inspect it to ensure it is not broken or damaged in any way. There could be debris in the cartrige that has either made it hard to turn or broken the ceramic disks. Our handles are easily removed by turning the bell shaped ecutcheon below the lever or cross handle. There are not set screws that hold them on. If you need further information feel free to call me at 1-800-334-0455. Press 2 for tech and ask for David Scarborough.

The Azimuth clutch is slipping-- have you tightened the knob in the center of the base-- push the handle to the left. There is a tiny set screw on the side of the knob -- you can loosen it and remove the knob and position it further to the RIGHT on the bolt.

Toilet not refilling water

A couple of thing's to check the fill tube in the tank is it connected from the fill valve to over flow. This fill's th ebowl up with the required amount of water.
Next is the water filling to the line on the fill tube with in 5/8 " from top of tube. Adjust the float to get it with in the fill amount required.

The chain on the flapper need's some slack, you just have to move it a little till it get's adjusted right. Water level low in the tank will affect the flapper also.

I hope this will be of some help for you.
