Tip & How-To about Cell Phones

Dropped cell phone in water.

I have heard of putting it in a freezer, using a dryer, place it on top of your a/c unit outside to help dry it out. However the best thing that I have found is placing it in a ziploc bag of rice for 24 hrs. You will need to take any covers, holders, batteries, and any other removable parts off and place in the bag as well. This will help draw any water or condensation out of the phone. I would never recommend placing it in the freezer because of humidity and condensation reasons. I also wouldn't recommend using a dryer due to the amount of time needed to evaporate any moisture, and also not the a/c unit because you may have to disassemble your a/c to get only shards and pieces back. The a/c was a personal experience! Try the rice, we have saved 3 phones now using this tip.

my dryer gets really hot to the touch on the outside in the back and the on the top than it do on the inside and i have to dry my clothes several times for the to get dry


your vent duct is probably plugged. Turn on your dryer and go outside and put your hand in front of the vent and check for air movement. If you do not feel any air then you need to clean or replace the vent tube. Do Not use your dryer until you get this fixed it can be a fire hazard. Another thing it could be is one of your breakers needs to be reset.


good luck

Drying Issue (help!)


It's lint stuck in the dryer that drastically lowers the efficiency.
From another site I found the solution:
 
1. UNPLUG UNIT
2, remove 4 screws top back edge of top panel and lift off panel.
3. blower will be toward the right rear of unit. To save a hassle later, take a sharp object and scrib an index mark across where the blower meets the plenum, it will help you line it up later.
4. there are four 7mm bolt-head screws holding the blower and blower motor onto the heater plenum. One of the screw is almost impossible to see, but there are 4. I used a "flex-shaft" socket to get them out. This can be a real PITA.
5. carefully lift blower motor out of plenum. You will probably need to shove the whole tub unit to the left to get clearence. IF YOU OPT TO DISCONNECT THE BLOWER WIRES MAKE A DIAGRAM OF WHERE THEY CONNECT!!
6. I usually use a thin knife to scrape each of the vanes on the blower. Then vac everything out and use your hand to check for smutz in the plenum.
7. THE FAN ONLY FITS ONE WAY ON THE PLENUM. be sure to test fit to see if all the holes line up.
8. When motor is back in place, spin the little cooling fan on top of motor to make sure it's not binding. I usually test the unit by plugging it in and starting dryer to make see it runs.
9. Put top of unit back in place.

DRYER WILL NOT GET CLOTHS DRY


A dryer needs only three things to dry clothes:
1. Tumble the clothes.
2. Blow the air.
3. Heat the air.

If your clothes aren't drying, you are missing one or more of these.

You've mentioned that the basket is tumbling. That's good. The blower is also running if the motor is turning. But that doesn't mean the air is blowing. It could be clogged up behind the lint screen, in the vent pipe behind the machine, or at the vent outside the house.

If it's blowing lots of cold air (go to the outside vent to find out) then your dryer isn't heating. This would mean some part inside the dryer has failed. If so, the first thing you want to determine is, does the ignitor glow? There's a hole at the very bottom front edge where you might see it glow. You may have to place a mirror in front of the hole to see it glow.

Write back with more symptoms, and I'll help you through the rest.

Clothes aren't getting dry very fast


First, check your circuit breakers, turn them off and on...there are two linked together labeled 40 amperes or more. Next guess will be the thermostat or the heating coils. Use a multimeter to check these parts. A diagram is usually attached to the back of the unit. Oh, is the drum turning? Are your clothes reasonably damp dry when you put them in? Is the vent hose kinked when the unit is in place?
