You may have simply punctuered the liner into the foam insulation. If you had damaged a pipe carrying refrigerant gas, the frig would quickly come back to ambient temperature. and you would need new frig. Not good to use sharp tools to clear ice, try using a hair dryer instead. Suggest you cover puncture with tape or simular to keep moisture out of insulatation.

Location of bullet piercing valve on sanyo sr4433s compact refrigerator

Does the unit have a manufactures process stub on the compressor casing. That is where I put piercing valves to add refrigerant. Remember that EPA does not allow piercing valves to remain on system and the hole it forms has to be brazed shut. So if it does have a process stub place the peircing valve close enough to the end so you have enough stub to pinch off to braze thehole shut.

If there is no process stub, then install piercing valve in a convenient location in the suction piping and pierce the line. Remove the refrigerant and install a "tee". On one leg of the "tee" install a schreader valve pressure tap and rebraze the joints. Perform and pressure and vacuum test to check for leaks and weigh in the correct amount of refrigerant. Once your proficient at this procedure, it should take about 60 to 90 minutes depending on obstructions around compressor.

Just a comment, low air flow on evaporator give that same indications as a low charge. Make sure the evaporator fan is working and you have good air flow through evaporator section.
Hope this helps

I just bought a 1994 suzuki RF900, i was told that the previous owner purposfully drained the oil to have some minor damage looked at. So, naturally I tried putting oil in her and it all leaked out th

It does appear to me that the crankcase must be holed somewhere. That is the moist likely reason the previous owner drained it (or rather it all ran out). I would have a good visual look at the crank case to see if there is an obvious hole. If it is damaged then it would obviously need a new crank case but first, take the fairing off and have a look.

What are coffee pods? Someone told me to use them in my coffee machine?

Some coffee machines have the option to either use ground coffee and filters or coffee pods. These are small, sealed containers that have the ground coffee inside. You insert the pods into the machine and click them into place. The machine pierces a hole and the water drips through. It's a much tidier way to make coffee especially if you don't drink a lot of it, so you don't want a whole jug full, rather just one cup at a time.

I just got my ears pierced and I was told to use alcohol every day to clean the holes but my friend said I also have to twist the earrings. Is that true?

Your friend actually gave you some good advice. The alcohol twice a day on the ear is a way of preventing infection in the new holes. Twisting the new earrings around every day several times will help keep movement and stop the earrings from sticking. It will also help the holes to be a good size and not close up. It sounds a bit scary but it shouldn't hurt at all. Good luck.

I just had my ears pierced. How long do I need to keep my earrings in before I can take them out for a day?

Don't rush to take them out as your holes could close up really quickly. My daughters were told to keep their earrings in for 6 weeks (and to clean them every day with alcohol). After that time they were able to leave them out for a night but if they left it much longer than that it was hard for them to get the earrings back in.

The pods are not being pierced and the coffee is coming out too weak. Help!

The capsules are not pierced when they are inserted. They are pierced on the back but not in the foil. The foil is pierced when the hot water is injected through the posterior holes and the pressure causes the foil to bulge, thus getting pierced by the grid in the front of the machine. If the capsules are not getting pierced it means that the water is not being injected with enough pressure. This could be due to hard water deposits. Try first to pump the machine by turning it on and then lifting the lever and keeping it raised for a few seconds. If that doesn't work, de-scaling the machine should correct the problem.

Where are the model number and serial number on a rolex

Thank you for contacting FixYa.
  • Look at the side of your watchcase. On the watchcase lugs, located where the watch bracelet is attached, you may see one small hole on each lug where the spring bar is located. This means your Rolex has the traditional pierced lug style. If your Rolex does not have the pierced lug style, turn the watch over, and look for the long spring bar in the space where the bracelet meets the watchcase. The spring bar attaches the bracelet to the watchcase. The directions for removing the spring bar on both watch styles is slightly different.

  • 2

    Use your thumb to press down on the link where the band meets the watchcase if your Rolex has the pierced lug style.. If your Rolex does not have pierced lugs, turn the Rolex over, and press down on the link where the band meets the case. Either way, you are applying gentle pressure to the same link, just different sides of it. Remember, you are only removing the side of the band at the bottom of the watch, so press on the link below the 6. Maintain gentle pressure on the link while performing the next step.

  • 3

    Insert the tip of your spring bar tool into the lug holes, and push the spring bar inward. When done correctly, you will feel the spring bar fall into the case, rather than pop back out. Repeat this step on the other side of the spring bar.

    For a nonpierced lug watch, place the tip of your spring bar tool on one edge of the spring bar, and push inward, until the spring bar falls into the case. Repeat this step on the other side of the spring bar.

  • 4

    Pull the band gently away from the watchcase. It should remove easily. You can now see the serial number on the watchcase.

  • The reference or model number of a Rolex is located between the lugs at the 12' position. It is also listed on the certificates Rolex issues.

    Hope this helps. Jewel

    I need to replace vacuum hose

    If you have a vise, put the end in to and you want to just squeeze it so you can get to the 2 tabs inside and using 2 flat blade screwdrivers, pry outward and the hose should come out of the cuff. Sometimes you can just cut and rewire, but watch and match colored wires to the right colors, mix them up and you would have a electrical mess. When you put it back together, push the cuff down until you hear it snap into place.
