Not sure where to put metal piece

Hi, I have just fixed my fridge, I had a problem with the heating element but managed to fix it. When i was putting it back together i had a extra metal piece but not sure where it goes, It is rectangular with angled edges on one side and has 4 notches on this side. It also has 4 wholes that look like 4 circles joined together, any help would be great.

This is a long silver piece? it fits behind the plastic back panel of the freezer, the 'clover' shaped holes go onto a little plastic nib on the back of the prevents heat from melting the back panel.

SOURCE: handle pin broke

this happened to mine while still under warranty, eventually the repair man brought a small replacement part which took 5 minutes to fix, but not before a previous engineer had ordered a complete new door. you should be able to get the part ordered, and it would be easy to replace yourself. Now my FP oven has broken down again

These units are energy efficient ,so much so that the elements are designed not to heat too much. Not sure as the manufacturers specs, that will be on the schematic. Unfortunately, there is no fix for this.

Why is there water in the bottom of my fridge

Depending on your fridge and age there is a drain line inside or on the back of your unit. It could either be clogged or frozen. Again depending on your fridge you may be able to take the panel out in the back of your freezer and defrost the line. Basically your unit will go into a defrost cycle to melt any ice off your coils in your freezer to prevent any ice build up. It is controlled by a defrost timer and there is a heating element below the coils. It could be a freak thing or you may need to check the defrost timer or heating element. Also make sure you have a good seal on all door gaskets. Check that by putting a piece of paper in the door when it's closed it should have a little resistance when you pull it out.

Heat shield fixing

you could also find a bigger self tapping screw, but if you have corrosive metal I would replace the piece, as it can spread over time.

The ceramic plates of my hair strightner are loose

Sorry, unable to see video, at work. Straighteners are not to difficult, usually find a screw at the hinge that will separate it into halves, then you should be able to open up each side and tighten it up. Just be careful putting it back together, make sure not to pinch any wires.

Masterbuilt Smokehouse model 20070712 won't smoke wood chips at 225 degrees

I had this exact same problem with my Masterbuilt Smokehouse even when brand new. I notice there is some variability in the space between the top surface of the heating element and the bottom surface of the wood chip box. I measured about 1/4 inch between the two surfaces when the heating element was seated bottomed out and touching the wire grill below it. What I did to fix the problem was to gently (make sure everything is completely cold before doing this) lift up the end of the heating element farthest away from where it enters the enclosure just a little bit so that when you put the woodchip box in where it is supposed to go, the top surface of the heating element will now be in contact with the bottom surface of the woodchip box. This arrangement allows much greater heat to heat the wood chips during the part of the heating cycle when the heating element is on (naturally the heating element cycles on and off to regulate whatever temperature your are targeting for your food being cooked). Now, because of this contact, every time the heating element comes on, enough heat will enter the woodchip box to keep the chips ignited. My next step is I am going to put a small 1/4 inch thick piece of metal beneath the heating element and the rack that is under it to force the heating element to stay sitting 1/4 inch higher so that it is always in contact with the lower surface of the woodchip box. Making these improvements allowed me to continuously get smoke when the big smoke box was at 225 degrees F.
Without making this fix, the unit would stop producing smoke at 225. Hope this makes sense and helps you.

Have a Samsung RF217 Refrigerator that is collecting water in the right vegetable bin? Fridge does not have ice maker.

Just had mine repaired. The evaporator drain is plugged with ice. The solution is to replace the heat sensor and add a piece of metal extending from the small heat coil under the evaporator that supplements the piece already there. The guy that repaired mine used a piece of coat hanger wire for the extension. Except for the heat sensor, it's a repair anyone can do. Just take off the plastic cover on the inside back of the fridge, melt the ice obstruction in the drain and hang a piece of wire from the heat coil into the drain. He also used some metallic duct tape to raise the height of the drain tray on the ends so that it wouldn't overflow in the future.

Magic chef fridge, 50 - 55 degrees frost inside freezer. whats wrong and how do i fix it. no $$ for repair man. vacumed fan etc in bottom back side of fridge (was really dusty). just emptied food into...

You have one of 2 problems - 1. a bad defrost heating element; 2. a bad defrost timer. The heating element is in the freezer under the coil. The defrost time is probably in the refrigerator.

Need directions to remove and replace 110 element in Dometic 2652

Get to the back of the fridge. On the right hand side, there is a metal tube about 4" in diameter which starts at the bottom and goes up. This is a piece of thin sheet metal, which holds insulation against the refrigerant line that goes up the right side of the fridge. The 110 volt heater is located inside of that, near the bottom. The heater sits inside of a small tube, welded to the refrigerant line, and is easily replaced. To get to it, remove any flat sheet metal parts that block your view of the 4" tube (you will need to have a clear view of the bottom of it.) Then you can see the heater. It is on the left side of your 4" tube, metal, about 5/16" in diameter, has 2 wires attached, and sticks out an inch or so to the left. Trace the wires back to where they are connected on your fridge, and remove them, (probably with a small straight blade screwdriver.) It may be necessary to remove another cover or 2 to get to that connection, so remember where all your cover plates came from. Digital cameras are great ;-) . Then, on your 4" tube, unsnap and open the "door" (the metal piece which is a couple if inches wide and 7" or so high,) Grab a hold of your old heater, and pull it up. It probably wont come up all the way so you can lift it completely out, so you will have to unsnap some of your 4" tube above the door. When you remove the old heater, note its position relative to the insulation and refrigerant tube, 'cause the new one goes right back in the same spot. Pull the old one out, and put the new one in. You will know you have it installed correctly when it is snug in its own little tube (you wont be able to see that part,) and there is no side to side play. Then reverse the directions, and put everything back together again. When you re-attach the 2 wires to your unit, don't worry about getting it wrong, it doesn't matter which wire goes with what connector.
