Tip & How-To about Heating & Cooling

How to test for gas leaks at furnace or elsewhere

Using a liquid dish soap diluted with water put in a spray bottle, like a glass cleaner bottle,use a 3:1 ratio of water to soap. Have good lighting and spray all lines and special attention to all connections. pay close attention to any bubbling. If any bubbles form, turn off gas, unscrew pipes at fittings and using a pipe thread sealer "pipe dope" coat threads liberally and reconnect fittings tightly. Retest after opening the gas valve. Gas lines use a globe valve which are open when the slotted knob is parallel to the length of the line. Be very careful not to allow any open flames until it is certain that all leaks are repaired. Warning never attempt to connect gas pipes or fittings without Pipe thread sealer or Teflon tape ; if it doesn't leak immediately it is certian to do so! Use good judgement or pay a proffessional with liability insurance.

automatic windows roll down slow


make a solution of dish soap and water, more soap than water, and put in spray bottle and spray edges of glass and the rubber track it goes up and down in...spray heavely and work windows up and down while doing this, the soap lubricates the rubber and glass and when it dries it leaves a film of lubrication to slide on. should take care of the problem, unless you have tired electric motors.

Frigidaire Dishwasher problem


The problem is hard water. There is a new product out called the dishwasher2_bing.gif filtration system. It filters the water before it enters your dishwasher. It works amazing and has a money back guarantee. You will love the way your dishes look after the first load. It is also very affordable (like 70 bucks). Go to www.dishwasherfilter.com to find out more info.

Dirty cups and baby bottles after dishwasher has been run


Hi and welcome to FixYa I am Kelly. One of the biggest causes of the symptom you describe is that there is a partial blockage of the drain. The blockage areas are most often in the "Air Gap" A device that looks like an inverted 5 oz Dixie cup on the back of the sink with no cone shape. Food particles collect in the very top of that and slow down the drain process. Because of that the dishwasher doesn't completely drain between cycles. So what you get is recycled previous cycle water in the rinse.

Other places where blockages occur are at the garbage disposal side inlet hole. And the last place is under the wash arm tower / mini riser in the pump impeller outlet area. To clean under the lower wash arm riser it requires diassembly and a good memory of how everything came apart / goes back together when your done cleaning.

the dishes come out with a white film on them. they are not clean clear dishes, the bowls and glasses have a film. I was using cascade dry soap switched to liquid soap still have the problem. what can I do to stop this from happening?


add Jet Dry or some other sheeting agent to the wash. also most pros frown on liquid soap (gel) so try the hard tablets, most have the jet dry built in. This also ensures the correct amount of soap. if this is a new development check the screens on the bottom of the washer under the spray arm and see if they are clogged with food or gunk. sounds like you are not getting a good rinse.
