I broke the little red dead bolt lever

Trying to fix it. I tried to pry it off, does it just push on?
Also, don't know who the manufacturer is but am wondering if I can just get a new lever.
Anyone know?

Post some photos and those that are mechanically inclined might be able to offer something helpful.

Well, this appears to be the part and I'm not sure how to get it apart.


Maybe the outside part of the door handle pulls out of the lever and the lever is attached to the inside panel.
I'll have to take it further apart...

This is a Trimark knob and locking ring. Part # of the knob is 81482 and the locking ring is 80967-15. It basically is just a push on and off knob like so many of knobs that are on a fan etc., nothing really special about taking it off or putting it on. I purchased one from Trimark a couple of years ago. I think it was actually cheaper from them then on eBay. S/H was a little pricey but it you need it you need it! You could check either out. Mine broke just from many years of use.

Mine is broke also - It works, but if turned to hard, it will spin. I'll get a couple photos of mine and see if its the same one.

It won't do MACH 2, but I can get a sandwich and take a pee.

It looks like the same one on mine.. On mine, there is a small crack (you can see it in the photo) so the knob doesn't get a good grip on the shaft and will spin. I wrapped a small wire tie around the knob to help squeeze it tight against the shaft, this helps but I can still spin it.

Is this the same as your???

F4Gary;

How did you get it off? Did you remove the entire panel and the clip holds the knob to the panel?

That is the same as mine.

I tried to pry it off with a flat blade screwdriver and it didn't want to come off.
I don't get what that locking ring is for if it just pushes on.
I'm on a trip right now so I won't be able to take the whole thing apart for a couple of days.
Kinda thinking that that ring holds the lever to the inside panel and when you pull off the panel, that is when the lever pulls off the shaft.


Plus....my screen door lever assembly broke too...again. What a cheap design. That internal part with the spring around it is made out of pot metal and keeps breaking every couple of years.


Not having much luck with the newer Fleetwood parts website. No pictures!!

That ring holds the knob on the plate.. When you remove the plate, the knob should stay bon the plate. When you install the plate, you'll need to rotate the knob to line up with the shaft.

Take a look at this site, scroll down a little..

http://www.oemys-performance.com/techtips5.htm

QUESTION for 98FPA:

Are those part numbers for the knob in the photos? I may order one.

50 years ago, the knob used to change channels on TV was very common for them to crack where they slide onto the tuner shaft. We used to take .020 aircraft safety wire, wrap about 5 turns around the knob and put a little epoxy on it. These would never break again. I may take mine off this weekend and see if I can fix this one the same way...

Yeah Waiter21, those were the part numbers that Trimark showed on their invoice. I did purchase them directly from Trimark in August 2014. I would think the numbers should still be the same. Sorry I did not get back to you sooner.

Doh...I knew I should have gone over to Oemy's website. I love that place!


I did notice on ebay they had a long shaft and a short shaft lever. Will have to take mine apart to see which one.


Thanks guys! Now to fix my screen door latch.
