Why does the front frame get real hot aroune top and bottom doors?

In some units the condenser coils run inside the outer walls of the fridge and this area can get warm. If its really hot check the visible coils at the rear and underneath the unit they may be badly clogged with dust, which cause the rest of the system to run much hotter since the airflow to the lower ones is blocked off. Make sure you clean all visible coils at least every 6 months. This will also cut down on the energy use.

Boston acoustics repair

How did debris get into your speaker?

You might try taking the woofer out by unscrewing all the screws that are holding it in from the front.

As for the grill repair? Are you handy with a hot glue gun and stapler?

Try stretching the fabric over the speaker frame and securing it with hot glue and/or staples. If you use a stapler, get one that fires flat staples not the rounded ones.

If the fabric is torn, find speaker fabric that is "acoustically transparent" commonly available from many sources in many fashionable colors.
you will have to remove the existing speaker fabric without damaging the frame. Scrape off any adhesive residue and remove any and all staples install your fabric by stretching and gluing/stapling the new fabric over the frame.

good luck.

1985 Dodge Ram Pickup Truck The front brakes

your pressure metering valve could not be working as it should,follow you brake lines down from the master cylinder to the frame rail it is on the inside of the frame rail and the front lines and back lines come out of it,on the front of the valve there should be a small ruber boot there the boot can be removed and inside on the valve you will see a small pin that goes into the valve it should be able to be moved in and out if not it could be rusted stuck and that could cause your front brakes to not release the pressure and cause your problem,i have a 1984 that did the same thing,hope this helps you.

Whirlpool fbb36af20/2 fridge freezer frame of front fridge freezer getting hot, fan at bottom back stoped working replaced fan but when you plug in new fan it starts to work but when you fully push the fan...

Hot frame is mullion heaters. Keeps moisture from forming on door and causing rust. Sounds like the connector is defective, remove connectors and wire direct. If fan won't run then you need to call a qualified service tech.

Front metal , top heating element very hot

This should be OK. There are heat strips placed behind the door frame to prevent sweating around the door frame due to the metal being cold normally without the strips. Thanks, Sea Breeze
