The pump should be installed inside an enclosure. If you live in an area which has freezing temperatures, the pump and all plumbing need to be protected from freeze ups.

Where should I put the heat sources in my reptiles tank?

Where you place the source depends on what type of heating process you are using. If possible, light bulbs should be placed outside the tanks enclosure; however if they are placed inside the tank they must be covered with some type of cage. If you are using an under tank heater/heat mat they will attach either on the inside/outside of the bottom of your tank.

Intermatic T104 timer manual switch stuck

To remove timer from enclosure, there is thumb spring located top inside box. Push up on spring, hold onto timer dial, tip outward and lift upward.
Disconnect power before removing mechanism.
Override lever should snap back and forth crisply, and turn pump ON-OFF.
If override lever is not turning pump ON-OFF, then check that you have 240Volts across terminals 1 and 3. Check that timer dial is rotating and keeping good time.
Then move override lever to ON position and check if you have 240Volt across terminals 2 and 4. These terminals are Hot when pump is supposed to be ON.
Reset circuit breaker, may be tripped off on one leg, listen for crackling sound of loose breaker, use nose to smell for burning, tighten wires on breaker, move wires to another same-size circuit breaker.
Copy following links for troubleshoot resources:

If timer is not functioning, then buy clock motor and trippers.
OR. You can buy the T104M mechanism-only, and snap into existing enclosure.
OR. It may be cheaper: Buy the whole T104 and snap out of new enclosure and install mechanism into existing enclosure.

I plan to install a palsm tv outside ,what protection do i need from sunlight,bad weather.

It will never survive the hostile outside environment. And when the TV does break, the service tech will be able to see what caused the TV’s failure.
Mainly, if you mount any residential TV outside, the warranty is void with any manufacture even if you have an extended warranty.
An alternative would be to use an LCD TV and purchase a quality LCD enclosure. The LCD enclosure will have a cooling and heating function for the TV, and will protect it from the hostile outside environment. You will still void you warranty mounting the TV outside even though it is in an enclosure.
You can do a search on LCD enclosures to find out pricing and more information.
Good Luck.

Ice flap door won't close - Freezer and ice maker frost up

Every time you use the ice dispensor , when the flap opens , cold air will fall inside the enclosed dispensor cover . This cold air , mixed with the warm outside air , produces moisture inside the cover . After so long , this moisture starts turning to rust , causing the solenoid and plunger to rust . G E has no "fix" for this problem yet . My suggestion , would be to drill holes in the bottom of the dispensor enclosure (white plastic enclosure , held on by 4 screws ) at certain points , so that the cold air will fall thru the cover , instead of staying in the enclosure . This is something I have to try on customers refrigerators for a while , before I send this Idea to G E . To answer your question , yes , I is normal to replace every couple of years ,.....for now anyway .

Water pump is leaking on my 2001 Yamaha YZF 426 motorcycle.

First you remove the four 8mm bolt that attach the water pump cover to the side cover, the lowest bolt will drain the coolant. next you remove the coolant pipe with one 8mm bolt. The water pump cover like any part that has been in place for years may need some force to remove and that is why you will find two tabs around the outside of the pump cover for prying it off.

Once you have the cover off the impeller unscrews by way of a built in 10mm nut. This nut is right hand threaded and is removable by rotating it counter clockwise with preferably a 6 point socket as a 12 point socket may round the nut sides since the impeller and built in nut are made of aluminum.

To replace the twin seals (one for water/coolant and one for oil) you must remove the engine side cover from the motor and pull the impeller shaft out from the engine side of the cover. After the shaft has been removed the bearing is pulled out with a bearing puller or sometimes it can be removed by pushing it out from the outside in with a makeshift driver but the bearing can be damaged by this method and it is not recommended. The old seals can now be pulled out or pushed out from the opposite side.

To replace the new seals you must drive them in perpendicular to the impeller shaft with the manufacture markings to the inside. The water seal is installed from the outside and the oils seal from the inside.

There is a tool used for installing the seals called a seal driver but you could make one in a pinch. The seal driver makes contact with the outside diameter of the seal where it is solid and has a metal core. The inside diameter is soft and flexible and should not be used to push the seal in place however it can be used to keep the seal driver centered over the outer diameter and to keep the seal moving in a strait line perpendicular to the impeller shaft.

Once the new seals are in place they should be greased with some lithium soap based grease.

Install the bearing and reassemble the impeller shaft then you are ready to reassemble the engine side cover and water pump housing but make sure you spin the water pump impeller slowly as you install the engine side cover as the impeller shaft is driven off the engine shaft behind it and the shaft needs to be aligned in order for it to fall in place (do not try to force the cover on).

Installation Rules?

There are four golden rules for installing a shower enclosure. The first golden rule is to make sure that the shower tray is level. If it is not, then problems will occur throughout the rest of the installation. Use a good quality spirit level and where possible install a tray that has adjustable legs. There are often problems associated with tiling over upstands as some are thick and difficult to set into the wall. The second golden rule is to install a tray that has a slim tiling up stand which is vertical and an integral part of the tray: This will make the installation easier, quicker and ensure it is totally watertight. Before installing the shower enclosure the third golden rule must be followed. A silicone sealer needs to be applied all the way around the join where the tiles meet the tray: This must be sealed first, to ensure there is no chance of water getting behind the wall channels and then into the walls. This is one of the biggest problems associated with shower installations but is easily solved if the silicon sealer is applied before the enclosure is fitted. The final golden rule is to fit the enclosure to the tiled surface and not on to a plastered wall, tiling up to it afterwards. Having installed the enclosure it is essential to use the same high quality silicone sealer around the outside of the enclosure. Sealing on the inside will cause leaking- not prevent it.
