SOURCE: Dishes are not coming out fully clean

the is a new product out called the dishwasher filtration system. it actually filters the water going into your dishwasher and leaves your dishes spot free. after the first load i was amazed that the white film was gone and my dishes were sparkling. you can get it at www.dishwasherfilter.com.

SOURCE: ionic breeze quadra s1857 Red light continues to blink needs cleaning even after cleaning. not filtering. help

Mine is a Pro-series Quadra. It needed better cleaning.

The front and rear plastic grill scome off (release catch at the bottom of each), allowing access to the central core. I cleaned it with a damp rag (let it dry before you turn it back on). Be very careful of the two wires running the length of the unit -- if you break these it will not work. I did, however, gently clean them.

When I restarted it there was an unusual smell for a few minutes, but all is working well again.

The new boot replacements are anti-microbial have a smoother surface and are designed to be more resistant to mold issues with proper care. Unfortunately, there are still a lot of the old boot replacements out there. The part number for the upgraded boot is 12002533..., This part number supercedes all prior part numbers for the Neptune boot assy...Hope this helps

SOURCE: Have several small DT-70 table fans. Wondering is

There are 6 screws, deeply recessed, in the rear of the fan case. (At least that is how they are on mine, phillips or cross head)
Once they are loosened, the front and back will come apart. I Do that annually so it can be thoroughly cleaned..
Otherwise, I use a toothbrush to fit between the slots to get most of the dust, also a paintbursh with stiff bristles for the outside grills.. Similar small brushes should work for loose dust. Also can blow out loose dust with a shop vac with blower capability.

Pkg says to freeze put bag in freezer but bag has small holes (came that way) - will the berries get freezer burn or is this part of freezing - brand ocean spray


The holes are to stop mould and mildew. Put the bag in the freezer as is and then when frozen put them into a Ziplock freezer bag and try and remove as much air as you can. This will prevent freezer burn.

If you bought them for Thanksgiving you can keep them in the crisper of the fridge for a couple of weeks.

Washing machine smells like mould


The odor may come from several sources. Mildew may be around the door's gasket. That might be cleaned with a rag and a half bleach/half water concoction. The soap dispenser tray may have had stagnant water present. Other hose areas may be growing mildew.

Here are some things you can try:

1) Run dishwasher powder detergent once a month through the washer. Or...
2) Run 3 quarters cup of bleach through an empty hot wash cycle once a month.
3) Yes, baking soda, ye olde oder absorber, can also be tried.
3) Clean the trap (where coins, etc. may be captured). Clean the filter.

Some High Efficiency machines have "high efficiency, HE detergents recommended for them. Does the drum have a soapy coating? If so, it will likely require at least an empty hot water cycle to get rid of the excess soap which may be responsible for the smell.

Naturally, if you are using bleach to clean the the washer door, you want to clean the bleach off too before you ruin some clothes by contact.

Hope this helps.

Mildew has entered the inside of the plasma tv


Let me get this correct, you can see mildew/mould inside your TV? If it's inside the LCD panel (obscuring the picture etc) then I'd get the panel or TV replaced. If it's just on some of the other internal wiring and the TV still works ok I would give it a good clean with some alcohol (such as isopropanol) , perhaps put a sachet of silicon moisture absorption crystals inside the TV somewhere, seal the TV back up and hope it doesn't occur again.

How to remove mould from inside wall?


One good way is to make a fairly strong solution of bleach and water and wash affected area,(with gloves on) allow to dry. Long term , mould and mildew is caused by moisture and poor air flow. Check to see if can find any moisture entry points and try to improve air flow (install air vents in wall).

Mould on door + odor also the fabric softner does not always empty


The first thing to do is to CHECK IN AND AROUND THE RUBBER DOOR BOOT (called a bellow) for small articles of clothing (like socks and underwear) that may have gotten lodged in behind the rubber. Pull the rubber back where it meets the wash tub and look behind it. It is common for small items to get stuck here, become forgotten and start to mildew. You should check this area after each wash and clean it periodically to get rid of the formation of soap scum, mold, and mildew. HINT: When you get ready to wash a load of towels, take a dirty towel and clean the door boot thoroughly (including the areas behind the rubber). Immediately place the towel in the wash and run it on a sanitary cycle. This way you eliminate the need for cleaning rags.

PERIODICALLY RUN THE WASHER ON A CLEANING CYCLE. Place the washer on the hottest setting you have (usually a Sanitary cycle) with nothing but bleach in the wash tub. Some newer models actually have a "Clean Cycle" available now just for this purpose. This helps keep the wash tub, drain lines and pump sanitized.

CHECK AND CLEAN THE DRAIN PUMP FILTER. Accumulations of debris in the drain pump filter can also cause odors. HINT: If you own a shop vac, pull the drain hose from the standpipe at the wall and pull a vacuum on the line. This will drain any residual water left in the tub, pump and drain lines BEFORE you remove the drain pump cover. This will prevent a messy clean up later.

LEAVE THE DOOR OPEN IF POSSIBLE. When not in use, leave the door open to allow the tub to air out and to keep mold and mildew from forming on the door bellow. I know this may not be desirable in some households with small children. If too much mildew forms on the rubber and it cannot be removed, replacement of the bellow may be required.

NOTE: This problem is common with front loader style washing machines. The doors on these machines have an air tight/water tight seal that is great for sealing the washer during the wash cycle, but can be terrible for collecting small garments and for not allowing the tub to properly air out when not in use. Following these simple preventive measures can go a long way towards preventing harmful mold and mildew, and towards extending the life of the door bellow and pump.
