I have moved into a property with a Sector extractor fan in the bathroom - when you turn the light on the extractor starts up -when you turn the light off the extractor continues to run for a long time -...

On some Bathroom extractor fans there is a setting for the amount of time you want the fan to stay on after you turn off the switch, the setting dial is normally at the back of the fan so you need to take the fan down from the ceiling making sure the fan is electrically isolated.

Where is the antifreeze going? cracked head or blown head gasket? This is a 4.0 with 217,000 miles . Did they have a problem with heads cracking??? Houston

Faulty head/head gaskets will usually show up as oil in your antifreeze. It'll be a brownish grey color with darker "spots" floating around. You could be leaking out of your water pump or w. pump gasket. It may only leak here while it's running and a small enough leak would be obliterated by the fan, leaving no visible evidence. Feel around the bottom of the gasket and see if it's wet when you park it next time. Make sure your radiator cap is tight and in good shape. Could be evaporating from there.

My Bathroom Extractor Fan does not work properly and for some reason the bathroom smells of cigarette smoke when the upstairs neighbours are at home!! Our landlord say's this is not possible!!!

Yes, very possible!. The bathroom fan is connected together, and the upstairs one is down-drafting to you. Have the exhaust checked for blockage, or buy a fan that has a built-in damper that closes the exit when not in use.

I am trying to use a screw extractor to remove a broken spark plug and i have broke 2 sockets already. please help.

Chances are the extractor is too small for the size of the spark plug. The EZOUT or extractor should be large enough to grip both sides of the threaded plug. It's also a good idea to spray WD-40 on and around the broken plug and let it sit for at least 20 minutes to penetrate. Hope this helps with your problem. Best of luck.

Bathroom extractor fan won't switch off

The fan most likely is turned on by the bathroom light switch. You likely have a defective fan motor.

My extractor fan is leaking a lot of water, it is nothing to do with the weather as it happens when it is not raining. The extractor fan was working but now has stopped

sounds like
the extractor is mounted in a cold space, and the moist air is condensing on the cold fan as it exits,
the fan housing may need better insulation, and the flap valve in the exhaust pipe needs to be checked to ensure it is closing, and keeping cold air out
it is possible that condensate in the fan has fried the motor

something to check

One way to check is to track down a schematic of the parts. That will often give you a good idea of there the part attaches and how.
