English term or phrase: cross thread
Screw the retainer firmly into the power unit. The retainer is a left-hand thread, and must be turned to the left (counter clockwise), to tighten. Be careful not to cross thread the retainer. This will cause poor motor performance.

Explanation:
I read it as: inserting the retainer wrongly so the thread of the retainer does not exactly match the power unit.
