Tip & How-To about Dryers

Better use from your high end dryer

This is something that the companies don't tell you, but if you have purchased a high end dryer in the past 10 years, you are not supposed to use dryer sheets in them. The dryer sheet with emit some sort of resin that will stick to the heating element causing it to overheat thus your dryer will not get hot anymore. I found out the hard way and had to get my heating element replaced. A great alternative is wool dryer balls and they are all natural and do not contain any harsh chemicals.,

Burnt factory-placed fabric/foam inside Kenmore Dryer

Why it'd appears to be scorched I have no idea. The purpose of that fabric is to support the front of your drum and allow a non abrasive surface for the weight of drum and cloathing to slide on during use. The cloth you have in yours has been changed to silicone or other types of teflon type surfaces. John T.

I have bought this particular hair dryer, Revlon ionic 1875,the first purchase of it, I had to take it back for replacement after 2 weeks, got the same exact replica. Now 2 months later, it has just quit working. I don't have the box or anything, so what can I do. With the past purchases being conair, I've never had this issue.

Write to company expressing how you always enjoyed their brand and detail problem in facts, not emotional tirade. Tell them to please rectify problem or your recourse is to discontinue purchasing their products. Tip: Next time save receipt to copy, all original packaging for at least 30 days. Good luck, and hopefully they can send replacement. If purchased w/credit card, contact the credit card company AFTER you write to Revlon so you can record complaint for credit refund should Revlon leave you "holding the bag". Good luck. Jimmy

Find spare and repair manual for intrepid wood stove

Alex, I don't know how old your Vermont Castings Intrepid wood stove is, but the only available Owner's Manual is for their fairly new model Intrepid II wood stove.

A little quick history. Vermont Castings was an independent company 10 years ago, that was bought up by Majestic (FMC) Fireplace Company of Canada. About 5 years ago, Majestic went belly up and the VC line was purchased by Monesson Hearth Products. There have been some improvements to their wood stoves in the past couple of years, so as to meet the new EPA Requirements. So, this manual may show some things your stove doesn't have.


Hope this helps you. Please let me know. Thanks.

GE elect dryer is cutting off prematurely after 10-20 minutes no matter what setting on timer we use. I'm guessing it's a heat sensor but i don't know where it's located. Model # DBL333EB1WW

It could be a high limit overload, but the cause may be a blocked air vent. You can remove the dryer vent in the back and see if the problem stops, this will tell you if the vent is blocked or not. Ryan
