Answer to: Spray Bar removal, GE dishwasherThe arms should pop out easily, but the paper based junk could possibly be dissolved by soaking the whole arm unit in drain cleaner over night. Use drain cleaner at own risk and test the arm if it won't be affected.
Answer to: How dangerous is it to work on a CRT display?I agree with the cautions above. The bigger the screen (distance between the cathode and anode) the higher the voltage, which can be 25 000 volts or higher. Voltage does not kill, but current. The higher the voltage, the larger the current that will flow through your body and affect it. So, take extreme care. I had years of experience, but was always on edge when working on the high voltage circuit of CRT's. Implosion is not that likely: put the viewing side of the CRT on a stack of towels, you'll be OK. These CRT's have to be tested before they get to be put in front of anyone's eyes, and are designed for really low pressures (vacuum). Just don't apply any uneven pressure, and stay away of the neck because that's the weak part. As with all devices, disconnect from power source as a first step. There's a cable with a rubber plug or shield on top which is the culprit. It keeps it's high voltage because there's a whole array of diodes and capacitors to get the electrons going the right way. The diodes keep curr...
