Hi there
This is normal if you use a pentium or an apple mac, computers generate lots of heat and when on, inside the laptop bag it will generate even more heat because some of the bags are insulated too.
If i happens again just make sure you turn it of and put it in a cool environment so the heat will dissperse, also listen to make sure the system fan comes on, if it doesn't have it looked at because it will not last long without the fan

The computer was probably not turned off to begin with, and thus it was active emitting heat. This heat had nowhere to go since it was in a case and heated the laptop to a high degree. If there is any damage it would be a very, very small amount.

This fan in the picture below I bought it less than six months ago and it stop working already. I notice the motor is a bit hot.

I think I answered you in another post. You plug it in, it doesn't turn and the motor feels hot? A hot motor isn't necessarily a problem, but if it's not turning and very hot, you probably need to replace the capacitor or the switch is somehow burned out. I would take it back to the store and just get a replacement.

You think the vent is clear but it isn't. The inside could be full of lint in the tube through the machine or the air travel through it is impaired somehow. The thermal indicator may have some lint on it also. Get one of those - As seen on TV- long lint snakes and use it to clean the whole visible area below your pull out screen. Especially the thermostat you can see there. If you have access to a compressor and air hose --- blow out the lint in the tube with high volume of air. Then turn on your machine and listen for the lint traveling through the vent exhaust. The thermostat may have a glaze on it that impairs the reading. Clean it off if you can.

My USB broke, is there any way I can access and trasfer my files, even if it means going inside the device?

The circuit board maybe broken or the USB plug needs resoldering back onto the circuit board. To check out the damage the circuit board needs to be removed from the casing to check for and circuit board damage or damaged solder joints. You need a fine tipped temperature soldering iron for this job.
The damage may be too great to repair.

How do I clean around the rim of the refrigerator drawers?

Samsung draws are removable, but they are a pain and have to be pulled out, then lift up which allows you to bet the nylon wheel guide to dip under stops, and sometimes takes a little force taking out, and putting back in.

Fixed leaking faucet, now handles leak at the base & the water pressure is low

No, air can't get trapped in there. I don't think you did anything wrong. It sounds like the valve or internal parts are worn more than new washers take up for. Tightening down the valve just reduced travel for valve to open fully. Can't think of a fix; where's that joe da plumber?

I have a compaq c60 laptop. a couple days ago the laptop would turn itself off and when i would to reboot it, it would only last a couple of seconds. i noticed its really hot right above and below the fan...

Hello, well, if the fan is stalled, then it really needs to be replaced as it will still be consuming power and getting HOT...which is really not good for a laptop as there is little natural air flow within the case anyway. Actually, I've seen those sort of laptrays with a built-in fan, and I think they're a really good thing to have, bearing in mind if you're running the laptop on battery then it'll drain the battery quicker! But have one IN ADDITION to a normall fully-functioning laptop, not as a substitute for a failed internal fan. I advise get that fan replaced asap before you cook something vital (and expensive) in the laptop. Kind regards, nicam49

Stay and Go coffee maker just quit during cleaning

Hang on. Wait until it has cooled and dried. Mine did this. About a week later, I tried it... Display was incredibly faint. But after some use, it "came back." Same as new. Everything is working.

Just... don't give up on it yet.
