It depends on the type of kit you have purchased. I'm attaching the Yakima canoe carrier instructions. If you have a different kit you may want to look on their website or get the instructions from the store you bought from. http://lib.store.yahoo.net/lib/orsracksdirect/yakima-standard-canoe-foam-blocks-installation-instructions-pdf.pdf

### Will 51 cubic foot of foam insulation, cover 400 square feet of a wall?

That depends upon how thick the foam insulation is. That is the only way to compute from cubic feet to square feet.

To simplify, assume the foam is 1 foot wide by 1 foot thick by 51 feet long. That is 51 cubic feet of foam. If you slice the block lengthwise at 1 inch intervals, you get 12 slices, each 1 foot wide by 51 feet long by 1 inch thick. This is 51 square feet of coverage at 1 inch. You would be able to cover 51x12, or 612 square feet.

Increase the thickness of the slice to 1-1/2 inches, you only get 8 slices, or coverage for 408 square feet.

Any thicker than that, and you won't get enough coverage for 400 square feet.

### GE Frontload Cloth Washing Machine makes noise throughout most of washing cycle. Purchase new 12/2014, Been doing this off and on since day one.

was it installed correct when new ? as there are foam shipping blocks that have to be removed before use , these should have had Tape handles that extended to back that pulled the foam out when yanked , id thought the drum wouldn't even rotate with these still in though?

### The llittle foam block had slipped down.

The little foam block is the end of the float valve. Try to put it carefully back in place, as the bucket may overflow or the dehumidifier may not work at all.

If you find you need to replace just the foam block, you can purchase it from the following website.

Need to seal the leak in the coolant container with epoxy or by replacing the coolant container.

Fill coolant system with 50/50 solution up to 2 gallons may be required to stop the overheating.

Don't drive an overheated engine.

### My Frigidaire Affinity dryer has started vibrating more and more during operation. Is the motor going bad or is there another problem?

Hi

Try the following to reduce the noise--

Washer is not resting firmly on floor. Move washer so it rests firmly on floor. Adjust leveling legs. NOTE: Some shaking of the washer is normal without moving across the floor.
• Shipping bolts and foam blocks have not been removed during installation. Check out the installation instructions for removing shipping bolts and foam blocks.
• Wash load unevenly distributed in drum. Stop washer and rearrange wash load.

Please post back for any further assistance.

### White creamy thing on dipstick of mazda RX8

theres no water, theres no coolant, no cracked block, theres no problem, it is normal for an rx8 (for that matter a rotary engine) to have some white foam on the dipstick. all it is is oil being thrown about by the rotors all over the chambers and foaming up, there is nothing to worry about, its just oil. it is more noticeable in 04-05 models and if you so desire you can go to a mazda dealership and the will install baffles into your oil pan or a new one that is updated to help prevent this because they redesigned it after 05.

### Is there supposed to be Styro Foam inside the ESA3089 AC unit?

I believe that the styrofoam is installed in the unit for shipping purposes. This is to prevent damage to the unit while in transit. Simply remove the foam and everything should work fine.

Hope this helps,

### Compressor makes noise and goes on and off constantly

That foam block is an anti vibration dampening device. My guess is is goes up against the underneith od that compressor. The real problem is with the short cycling compressor. I would return that piece of junk.

### CD skip

this may sound funny, but it worked in my car, put a foam sleeve around it- so that the unit it sitting on the foam and not "hanging" there, the steadiness of the unit will help it not skip. you may even use the floral foam arrangement blocks cut down to size.

### Spin Cycle

Remove the bottom panel, it is held on by two screws, and make sure the foam block and shipping brackets are removed. My installer left them in.
