If your stockpot has a spigot then you wont need to lift a heavy, hot pot! Its great because you can drain out all the liquid without breaking the raft, so the liquid wont get clouded.

I misplaced directions on how to tighten the spigot. Need to know, please

Looking at close-ups of the picture, it has a standard type spigot assembly for a glass-walled beverage vessel. There's a spigot on the outside, with a threaded hollow shaft behind it, a soft compliant gasket between it and the glass, the glass, another gasket, and an internal screw. Looking closely at a picture, such as the one here (
Shangri La 320 oz Beverage Dispenser ), you can even see the hex-head on the internal nut. With the container (hopefully) empty, get a medium sized crescent wrench or slip joint pliers, reach in and grab the nut. With the other hand, hold the spigot and make sure it's square (spigot pointing down and not off to the side). Turn the nut until it's firm. Don't over-tighten it - both the pliers and the threads multiply the force on the wall. If it's really loose, tighten first by hand, then another half to 3/4 turn, at most, with the pliers. Add some water and check it doesn't leak, and you're good.

Good Luck!

Outdoor Spigot Leak

You may exchange the washer in the spigot or just change the spigot which is simple.

I have loose rubber tubes on my 1982 Suzuki GS 650 GL adn they are comming from the Carb on one side and have a screw on the other side any ideas

1. To correctly fix this the carbs will have to be removed from the rubber spigots completely and moved out of the way.
2. finish unscrewing the loosened screws and remove the rubber spigots and make sure to note which way they go so that they can be put back on the same way.
3. clean the back of the rubber spigots with laquer thinner or acetone and let dry for a few minutes. Also clean the head surface that the spigot attaches to.
4. apply a thin layer of gasket maker rtv or other suitable rtv to the back of the spigots and tighten them back down to the head.
5. wipe the extra rtv from inside and outside of the rubber spigot where it comes out of the mating surfaces.
Re-attache the carb and adjust the idle if needed.

If the rubber spigots are not sealed and tightened down, they can cause varying idle, popping throught the intake and exhaust pipe, hard starting, and bogging

Fisher & Paykel GW712 hot water fills fine - cold water just trickles. Was working fine until yesterday

Turn that spigot off, then unscrew the hose from the machine and inspect the screen that is there (on most machines, some have internal screens/filters) If that screen is clogged, you can clean it or get a new one, if it is damaged. Place the hose inside the washer, or someplace you know the water will drain away, turn on the spigot to make sure you have a flow from the spigot to the end of the hose. Reattach and charge the hose. I believe this will be the answer.
Hope it is helpful. Please rate and comment, Thank You

Washer resevoir in the bottom does not drain after a cycle. Still half full.

better check if there is an obstruction in your rubber drain hose, remove anything causing the blockage.
check the drain spigot under the sink where the drain hose connects into the u bend. Usually this is where food gets trapped due to the spigot not being drilled out large enough

Excess fuel consommation

MPG gone down drastically? Try a fresh air filter. Also add Sea Foam fuel additive to your gas on the next fill up. Put odometer at zero after the fillup, see how many MPG you average on that tank, and the next.

How do you fix a leaking outdoor wall spigot? Even though the handle is turned tightly off there remains a drip. Spigot seems to be all one piece and attached into stucco wall. Is there a way to repair...

Sometimes, depending on the type of the spigot, you can unscrew the valve from inside the spigot. There would be a hex nut immediately under the part where the handle on the valve stem comes out. BE CAREFUL: Outside spigots rarely have independent shut-offs (ie, in order to work on it, you will have to shut off the main water supply). Once you start down this path, you need to be fairly certain there is a replacement available for your type of spigot. If you remove the valve, there is no assurance that you will be able to get the original back in without making the leak worse. Please have an emergency back-up plan in place.
