How to put the temperature control knob back on.
« on: July 26, 2018, 02:23:35 pm »
My temp knob was having issues, like spinning all the way around, then it fell off.  I need to open up the box now to fix it.  Are there any step by step how to's? Or at least some diagrams?

I don't have the BS611, but from what I recall you only need to remove the side panel of the generator (the side that has the vents). Look underneath the generator and remove the screw that is holding that panel in place. Once the screw is removed the side panel should slide up and off.

Well, I figured I had to get inside somehow.  There were multiple screws to remove to open the generator and most had rusted firmly in place. Mix went out and bought some liquid wrench, but that did not work.  I drill Ed the heads off of two screws and that allowed me access. Mi put the knob back in place and all works.  The case is pretty dented and banged up, but who says it has to be pretty.  I suggest Bradley use screws that don't rust.
