    Dennis, I'm sorry to hear about the water damage in your ceiling and walls. It's amazing at what the craftsmanship was like on 1920's residential homes. Are you planning on replastering the walls? My parents also live in an older home that has plastered walls and ceiling. I love the smooth skim coat look. I would imagine that you'd want to find a good, experienced, and reputable professional to do something like this. http://www.jdpinteriorlinings.com.au/ser...

You can go to Lowe's and ask them for some wall plaster,tell them what your doing and they will get you the right kind and you will also need a putty knife to spread,and some sand paper,it will get real dusty when your sanding and it will go every where,use safety glasses,and a dusk mask and cover your hair.

Waveguide Cover

If the microwave is sparking or arcing the waveguide cover might be damaged and shorting out. Try removing the waveguide cover and see if the problem goes away. If there are any damaged spots in the microwave ceiling or sidewalls, repair them and paint them with microwave oven paint. Replace the waveguide cover if it is burnt or if it will not stay in place.

Microwave Oven Paint

If the microwave is sparking or arcing on the side walls the paint might have chipped causing pitting in the metal oven wall. Use microwave safe paint to touch up any bare metal spots.





Rack Support

If the microwave is sparking or arcing near one of the rack supports, remove the support, repaint any bare metal, install a new support.

Freezer is cold but refrigerator side is barely cooling. turned off and water leaking out of door on the freezer side


Hello Roxanne,

what the problem most likely is a failed part of the defrost system Do you see a bunch of frost built up on the back wall of the freezer? If you do frost build up,i would take off the back wall of the freezer and replace the deforst heater and defrost termination. A hair dryer could be used to melt the built up frost from the coil behind the back wall. Another part that will cause frost build up is the defrost control, that isn't the freezer behind the back wall but instead in the fresh food compartment in the control panel where the thermostat is. I would replace heater/defrost termination first though since they are the most likely to fail parts.

I hope my answer will help you to fix your refrigerator,
Gene

I have ceramic (terra cotta) block walls in my basement (house was built around 1920. The blocks are ridgid and were not laid very evenly, although the walls are sound. Plastering is an option, but with...


My house is of similar age and construction. I built a nice TV room in the basement several years ago. My method was the same as the way interior walls are built in new construction. I nailed a 2x4 to the ceiling near the wall. I nailed another 2x4 (pressure treated) to the concrete floor directly below the 2x4 on the ceiling. Then I toe-nailed vertical studs in place. For the studs I used 2x3's since this allowed me to get a nice flat plane on the front surface while allowing an inch of space on the back for irregularities of the block wall. I then covered the studs with water resistant drywall. The results were excellent and have held up very well. I also use a dehumidifier, since my basement was somewhat damp. I built the dehumidifier into a cabinet so that it draws air from the space between the block wall and the 2x3 wall. I don't need to run the dehumidifier in the winter. For the interior walls separating the TV room from the rest of the basement (furnace and workshop area) I used 2x4s for the studs, but the 2x4 along the top and bottom were just like the first wall I described. And by the way, in order to nail the pressure treated 2x4 to the floor, I used a power-nailer that uses charges that look like 22 caliber gun blanks. This seems spooky, and is wicked loud (use earplugs and safety glasses!), but it is inexpensive and very effective. The nails don't have to resist pulling out, they only have to resist being slid around, since the wall stud holds the pressure treated 2x4 against the floor. Good luck!

Do you have insurance? Are you willing to take the chance of serious injury due to electrical shorts? What about increased operating cost because of deteriorated insulation (both the heat and cold type and the electrical wire kind?) Computer parts are easily damaged.

In my opinion, replacing these appliances is the only reasonable approach. Im not willing to subject my friends or family to the potential harm this situation represents.

57,000 good reasons to not use your damaged appliances. If you can find a professional that will certify these devices as safe today and for the years ahead, use 'em. If you ask me, replace 'em.

Others here may have different ideas - You have my ideas.

Boiler pressure falling


Regretfully you have a leak. It is the only reason to have repeated pressure drops. Now it could be something like the relief valve or a leak in the wall or ceiling. Since it sounds like you have no water damage on walls or ceiling start by looking around the boiler when it is firing. Then look for someone in the referal area at fixya.com to repair the issue. This is specialized work and should be done by someone trained in the field.

Good Luck, Phil

Water can leak from these areas:

The inside ceiling of the refrigerator
The inside back wall of the refrigerator
Self-defrosting refrigerators usually dispose of the water generated during the defrost cycle via a tube or channel that directs the water to a pan at the bottom of the refrigerator. From the pan, the water normally evaporates. (See a more detailed explanation of this in the How Things Work section of our website).

If the tube or channel is clogged or obstructed, the water backs up and leaks into the inside of the refrigerator compartment. Then the water builds up at the bottom, inside of the refrigerator. When the water has built up for a time it may spill out of the front of the door opening. To fix this problem, clear the drain tube or channel and allow the defrost water to flow down to the drain pan.

In some refrigerators, the defrost water is intentionally directed down the back wall of the refrigerator, where it then flows to the bottom of the refrigerator compartment and out to a small drain--usually located beneath one of the drawers at the bottom of the refrigerator. If the drain becomes clogged or blocked, the water may back up. To fix this problem, clear the obstruction.
    The inside ceiling of the refrigerator Water accumulating on the ceiling of the refrigerator is usually caused by a clogged drain in the freezer section beneath the evaporator. The clogged drain will cause water from the self defrost cycle to leak into the divider between the freezer and refrigerator. This water may then freeze and cause condensation build-up on the refrigerator ceiling. The solution to this problem begins with unclogging the drain. It may also be necessary to remove the entire freezer/refrigerator divider to thoroughly dry the insulation in the divider. Occasionally the insulation needs to be replaced to prevent a recurrence of the problem. This can be a big job – you may want to hire a qualified appliance repair technician.

    The inside back wall of the refrigerator In some refrigerators, the water from the defrost cycle is intentionally directed down the back wall of the refrigerator, where it then flows to the bottom of the refrigerator compartment and out to a small drain - usually located beneath one of the drawers at the bottom of the refrigerator. If the drain becomes clogged or blocked, the water may back up. To fix this problem, clear the obstruction.

    CEILING FAN 3SPEED 4WIRE HUDSON BAY


    Usually when you say 4 wire, the correct electrical definition is 12/3 or 14/3 with a ground, depending on the amperage capacity of the circuit that the fixture is powered by. The bare copper wire is case ground which goes to the metal body of the fan and is combined with all the other bare copper grounds in the switch box on the wall. The white wire is the neutral or return. it is connected to the white wire in the fan at the ceiling box and combined with all the other white wores in the switch box. The black wire is usually the light power which is then connected to the appropriate connection (labeled) on the switch in the switch box on the wall. The red wire is the power for the fan (which is also labeled) in the switchbox on the wall. Sometimes the wiring at the ceiling box is not 4 conductors especially in older buildings, then the fan and the light power wires are combined at the ceiling box with the existing black wire. Then the ceiling fan and light goes on and off at the wall switch together and the speeds are controlled by a pull chain at the fan. The kight can be shut off with a pull chain also so that the fan is on onl.y.

    One black wire on the switch hooked to the black sources wire. The other black wire on the switch hooked black up to the fan. The green on the switch wire goes to the bare wire. If there is bare wire you can use the white wire.

    Wiring ceiling fans to wall switch


    Hi Bigelow,

    You need two switches.  It sounds like the Electrician set up the junction box for two circuits(Lights and Fans).  i say this because your supply has 4 wires, Red , Black, White and Bare. We may be able to oversome this with one Lutron Switch. Allow me to investigate, and I will be back.
