Can you cook noodles in a microwave? If so, how long do you cook them for?

yes you can cook noodles in the microwave. Make sure you use a really big bowl and plenty of water. Cook the noodles for 3-6 minutes but make sure you use hot pads or gloves to remove the bowl as it will be boiling hot and you can really hurt yourself.

water leak from freezer

Hello, Thank You for using FixYa. I will be helping you today.Sounds like you have a frozen drain.If there is ice on the bottom of the freezer. You need to remove the back panel in the freezer. Do not touch anything behind the panel and dont poke anything. You need to remove as much ice from the bottom as you can. Then use boiling water to pour in the bottom section under the evaparator,I would put a towel in the unit to help catch the water. Keep adding new hot boiling water until the drain clears up and the water starts to drain. It can take a while sometimes the whole tube will freeze. You can add a duckbill to the end of the drain hose behind the unit to help stop this from happening part number 8055306 Just push it on the end of the drain line.
Thank You and please rate my answer if it was helpful..

water dripping into the refrigerator area from the freezer

Means you have a clogged or iced drain. Remove rear panel in the freezer and pour hot boiling water into drain. Inspect to ensure it is not iced. Keep pouring hot boiling water into drain until it opens and starts to drain. Be sure to put towels on top shelves in refrigerator to catch water, then dry completely.

freezer drain is plugged. How do I unplug it?

shut off unit. find drain hole. pour HOT(boiling hot) water about a cup. wait so it will melt the ice. now either use a air from air compressor, or a portable steamer to run air thru the hole, also can use a long flex bar(like cloths hanger) or a flex pvc hose.
U also have to make sure your condensor coil is clean. dust at bottom of the fridge usuallu cloggs the drain as it normally drains to the boottom tray located beneath the fridge.

Dishwasher water keeps backing up into kitchen sink then taking a long time to drain from sink

Yes, your sink drain needs cleaning -- it's clogged. Pour some bleach into the sink drains and let it sit for a couple of hours. Flush out with boiling hot water.

If this improves the situation but not completely solving the drain problem, try it again.

If that doesn't solve the problem, remove the P-traps on the sink drains under the sink and clean them out.

If that doesn't work, let me know -- we'll try something else.
