Subz 550 drain tube keeps freezing up, causing water to spill onto base of fridge and freezing


i know this is late but there's a heater kit made for this 4202160 is part number,you remove the shelves,you can put a mark under the shelf arm on the far outside where the shelves hook on so you can put them back in the same spot,then remove the light cover,the two screws and metal cover and then pull the wall off and set it to the side ,the drain heater kit plugs into the wire harness,the heater will heat up and keep drain from freezing,you can slide the tube off,stick a screw driver in to hold it down to the floor so you don't burn your hand and blow hot air into it with hair dryer to melt out ice,keep heat on for like 20 to 30 seconds then cold air or remove heat you don't want to mess the hose up from overheating wait a bit and hit it again until you melt out the ice,then i use a long plastic wire tie to stick into drain hose to clean it out,some nasty stuff in there,i use a steamer to clean the line out and then i have a piece of 1/4 inch plastic water line to snake into the drain,if this is the first time this has happened you don't need the heater kit,just clean out the tube and metal drain trough,also clean the back of the top crisper drawer shelf,crumbs and stuff can get in between the back wall and the top shelf and then will fall into the drain,if you keep that area clean you won't have to many issues and keep the fridge a little warmer so it doesn't freeze up the water in the drain tube,put the drain tube back onto the trough and pour hot water into it,if it drains down you're done if it's still blocked get a turkey baster and push hot water down into the drain tube to clear it,if it still doesn't clear remove the bottom kick panel,you'll see the drain pan and look at it because you have to get it back the same way in the clips then you can see the drain tube,stick a plastic tie up in there to clean it,sometimes there could be dust or something in the drain pan,when the water hits it it can get into the bottom of tube and block it but i've only had to do that once,hope this helps you out.

Black on two sides of monitor


For the Start menu, I assume you're talking about the taskbar that appears on the bottom of the screen. Press the Windows button on the keyboard (usually located between the Ctrl and Alt button on the left hand side).Right-click on the Start button. Click on the Taskbar tab and check the box that says "Lock the taskbar". Your taskbar should return to your desktop.

Wallpaper (desktop image)

In XP:
Right click on a blank space anywhere on the desktop. Click on graphics properties. You should see a window with your Wallpaper previewed in the top window. Click in the Settings. There should be a setting for "Stretch". Select Stretch and your desktop should return to normal.

In Vista: Right click on a blank space on the desktop, click personalize/display settings/advanced settings Click on your graphics card if available or graphics properties. You're looking for Aspect Ratio options From here you will see a setting with 2 options
  1. Maintain aspect ratio
  2. Full screen (no border)
Depending on your graphics card, this process may differ slightly, but the setting you need is Aspect Ratio

I hope this answers your questions. Best of luck.

Water spill on my AOC2216Vw LCD Monitor


Hey man, thanks for coming to me. Um yea, massaging may help but too hard will do damage since it is LCD is Liquid Crystal Display and it is fragile and easy to damage. The water should clear up in a few months, if not i would look at replacing it which can be costly. Here is a link to fix your unstuck pixels

http://www.wikihow.com/Fix-a-Stuck-Pixel-on-an-LCD-Monitor]

Now im not liking that bit about how you mentioned was spreading so leave it for about two days, give the therapy for the screen a try and let me know if the laptop screen is healing. For the moment if you have one i recommend you hook up a VGA Monitor, old school stuff if you can and give the LCD a rest. I will post as a solution but comment back and i will keep helping you as much as you need it.

Can I use color safe bleach in my new cabrio, and if so where do I put it?


According to the manual on pages 12 & 13.

1.
Place a load of sorted clothes into the washer. See “Laundry
Tips.”
■ Load evenly to maintain washer balance. Mix large and
small items. Items should move easily through the wash
water.
■ Load only to the top of the basket as shown. Overloading
can cause poor cleaning. Items need to move easily
through the wash water.
2. Pour measured powdered or liquid High Efficiency detergent
into the detergent dispenser. Always use the detergent
dispenser, and do not put detergent directly onto clothes in
the washer.
3. Add color-safe bleach (powdered or liquid) to this dispenser,
if needed. Be sure to match powdered color-safe bleach with
powdered detergent or match liquid color-safe bleach with
liquid detergent.
4. Pour measured liquid chlorine bleach into the liquid chlorine
bleach dispenser, if needed. Bleach is diluted and
automatically dispensed at the proper time during the wash
cycle.
■ Do not overfill. Do not dilute. Do not use more than 1 cup
(250 mL) for a full load. Use less with a smaller load size.
■ Follow the garment and the chlorine bleach
manufacturer’s directions for proper use.
■ To avoid spilling, use a cup with a pouring spout. Do not
let bleach splash, drip, or run down into the washer basket.
■ At the end of the cycle, a small amount of water may be
left in the dispenser. This is normal.
NOTE: Use only liquid chlorine bleach in this dispenser.

5. Pour measured liquid fabric softener into the fabric softener
dispenser, if desired.
■ Do not overfill. The dispenser holds 3 oz (94 mL), or a
capful of fabric softener.
■ The fabric softener is dispensed in the final rinse. If Extra
Rinse is selected, the fabric softener will be dispensed
during the Extra Rinse.
■ Do not spill or drip any fabric softener onto the clothes.
■ At the end of the cycle, a small amount of water may be
left in the dispenser. This is normal.
NOTE: Use only liquid fabric softener in this dispenser.
6. Close the washer lid.
7. Press POWER. This turns on the washer display.
8. Select a Wash Cycle. See “Cycles.”
9. Select the desired Modifiers. See “Modifiers.”
10. Select an Option, if desired. See “Options.”
11. Select Delay Wash, if desired. See “Delay Wash” in the
“Modifiers” section.
12. Press START. The wash cycle begins, and the display shows
the estimated remaining time. The lid will lock.
NOTE: If you do not press Start within 5 minutes of pressing
Power, the washer automatically shuts off.


The way that I read the manual, your color safe bleach would go in the detergent dispenser. Your liquid chlorine bleach would go in the bleach dispenser.
