First I would cut around the hole using a dry wall knife -I would make it a square. Then get a piece of wood ( 2" high and Then measure the length of the hole if it is 9" then you would need the wood piece to be 11" long.) Insert the wood piece inside the wall (hold on to it) and then drill using dry wall screws from the out side wall into the wood piece you installed. Then cut a piece of dry wall the size of the square you made and insert into the wall then screw into wood piece. Then take some joint compound and spread light over insert dry wall spreading on the old dry wall and let dry and then sand so it is flush with wall.

Want to remove present dishwasher for replacement with a new one. How do you do it.


Most dishwashers are housed in a cabinet next to your kitchen sink.
Not knowing how exactly your machine is set up I will just advise you on common setup features and removal.
First open the doors to kitchen cabinet under the sink. If you see two hoses connected under the sink, they most likely are from your dishwasher. One is an inlet hose which would be connected to a water tap. The other would be a drain hose which would be connected via a clamp to the drain under your sink.
Turn off water tap to remove inlet hose. Unscrew or undo the clamp fixing your drain hose to drain pipe. Note when you remove the drain hose the hole to the drain pipe is exposed. You need to block this off as it will leak water when ever the sink is running. I normally get a plastic bag and twist it inside the hole and tape it off.
Next you need to locate the power cord and plug for the dishwasher. This is normally under the sink cabinet as well. However, check either side of the dishwasher. Sometimes they are behind the dishwasher.
Once you have disconnected the hoses, open dishwasher door. Look on the inside walls of the dishwasher. Some models are screwed into the wall of the cabinet so you need to unscrew machine. The screws go in either from the side walls or from the inside roof of dishwaser to your benchtop.
You need to also remove the kitchen kickboard if one has been installed infront of the dishwasher.
When machine is free open the diswasher door and grab either side of door and gently pull machine out. Have someone help you feed the hoses through as you pull out.
If the machine does not easily pull out check again for hidden anchor screws around the edges of the machine or even clamps which fix the hoses to the cabinet.
If you have issues pulling it out see if you can take some pictures and I will help you.

I would like to put my cook top on an island in the centre of my kitchen how would i vent down thru a crawl space???


Get a downdraft cook top and drill a hole. Then run the piping to the outside wall of the house and drill again and run the piping thru to the outside. They make outside wall vents like dryer vents only bigger to accommodate the bigger vent pipe. Happy crawling. It will look and work great if you get a good stove. Do your research.

Need to know how large a hole to drill into wall for manifold to fit no instructions came with my faucet set


If you can't find any documentation, the manly(easy) way would be to buy a hole saw set, find the part of the faucet that goes through the wall, and select the closet fit possible of hole saw that will fit the part. It's okay if the hole's a little bigger than the pipe because the cover plate will probably cover it up, but please double check before drilling that the hole really will be covered by the coverplate.

My krugs dolce gusto coffee machine will not 'switch on' when i press the 'on' switch ie no green light and no water heating. Fuse replaced, and power source checked. No preceding incident to damage...


not ideal but if you cant get a refund, remove the switch join the 2 brown wires together and insulate. poke back in the hole and cover the switch hole with tape. You can then use the socket on the wall switch to operate as normal. just done it and it works..... remember to turn it off at the wall after use. hope this helps.
