The magnetic/rubber seal on the doors to both units If it's not in good shape, the fridge/freezer will admit outside (warm) air--.That warm, moist air enters the cabinet and cools. Cool air cannot contain as much moisture as warm air, so the excess humidity condenses out and collects in the bottom of the fridge. If the drains are blocked (or not) that moisture ends up on your floor as liquid water.and due to that same liquid water the circuit of the light bulb also gets short and the light do not come up. -------------------
You have to loosen or remove the plastic door liner to replace the seal.  there is an liquid glue like adhesive involved under the seal to stuck it.

Our fisher and paykel dishdrawer won't wash. It comes up with F1 and flashing light on control panel.

the dynamo dishwashing stuff has caused foaming which reached the base of the dishdrawer unit causing the flood switch to trip. This gives F1 error.
Not sure how much foaming has occured.

Best to turn off power and take power cable out from socket. then empty the drawer using towels. pull out the bottom drawer and wait a day or so to let the foam disappear from the bottom of dishwasher (under the bottom drawer). Connect the power and see if F1 had gone. If not, you need more work. Post a comment based on the above suggestion and I will guide you further if required. Always use Finish dishwasher power only (recommended quantity) as the drawers are small and don't need much detergent.

2001 toyota sienna water leak inside rear door seal

For water leaking inside the rear door panel, I'll suggest you check and replace the black rubber/foamy seal that is part of the high-mounted-rear light assembly.
It gets weak over time and soaks water, thereby allowing water seep into the booth lining and also into the underlay of the carpet.
If you have a cracked rear-light (the one attached to the boot hatch), you may also get a leak.
Change this rubber seal/ gasket. I used an old rubber carpet to make a gasket to fit the light assembly, and it stopped the leakage.
Hope this helps.

Single lever kitchen faucet,seal broken

To address the leaking problem fast, you may replace
the whole set.
1. Shut off the main water valve.
2. Take the leaking kitchen faucet off.
3. Replace the defective kitchen faucet.
4. After replacement, open the main water valve.

Of course, you could have repaired it. That is assuming that you could easily find the right seal.
Besides there is no guarantee that the location where
the seal will be placed is still not wornout.

Have alarm code PO442 could you tell me what that is

evap code. this is the vent or tank pressure leaking, This light will come on if seal is broken in tank, gas cap seal is broken, vent line is broken or a cracked line in the vent system. a smoke test is best way to find this leak. No worries it isn't dangerous or make your vehicle run any different, just the light. good luck
