If you have a wall or window unit you'll have replace the t-stat by the model number. If you have a central system you get a t-stat from a hardware store from $30 to $200 depending on model. I would recommend a digital t-stat because they are accurate +/- 1 degree where a mercury t-stat is +/- 10 degrees. either way they come with instructions and only take a few minutes to install.

I have a 1993 Chevrolet c-1500 truck with A/C. It is not blowing cold. I noticed that the sticker on the compressor says R-12. What can I put in that is safe?

You Must Change over to 134-A and this Requires Replacment of All Internal Rubber "O" Rings
Although I Have Purchased the ADAPTER Fitting and Just Filled My Personal Vehicles With 134-a With No Problem

I have an old sony rmx20 discjockey. It has

1. you may not be able to go through the auxillary to get sound from this unit main because, from the inference here is that it is mono input.
But not being able to see the unit I am not privy to the full scope of the functionality of it.
Retro fitting new device with old usually means that modifiction is needed to make the new device couple or patch to the old device.
This may mean that the unit (old) will need to be disassembled and the main board scanned for a component to be insert or wired to accomodate the new device for audio to be heard trough it,.
There is a site called "instructables" that will assist in retro fitting new audio device to new but to give step by step here in this forum would not be accomodating to you because of limitations that is the unit being physically look at to assess the proper way to complete this project.
I hope this helps.

How to change gas orfice to propane glass smokes up. soot

Is this unit originally set up for natural gas? If so, the burner oriface and the gas valve need to be retro-fitted to propane. This is something only a qualified service technician should attempt as an incorrect retro-fit could cause an explosion resulting in someone getting hurt or even killed.

Can you retro fit a Calypso pump with a lint filter to stop it from getting clogged?


Very inventive and imaginative.

It is best that your lint filter gets glogged and you regularly clean it, rather than letting the link work its way down to the water pump and clogging that.

To retro fit a pump to disperse the lint, seems like a big engineering task, and you'll find after all the effort, the lint would need to end up somewhere else and still need to be cleaned.

But not to dismiss your idea, if you find an effective solution, you may even patent it.

All the best.
