If I replace a range hood should I get good updraft if I reduce a existing 8 inch pipe to 6 inches for the new range hood. The ADKY I just bought was an excellent price

Accidentially left the the engine oil cap off. Drove for less than 24 hours about 20 miles. The car had a rubbery odor. I thought it was the tires from my daughters bike in the back. The engine oil...

If the cap has been replaced, wait til the car is cool/cold and purchase a can of brake parts cleaner and inspect under the hood for signs of where the oil sprayed. Clean it with cleaner and allow to dry prior to starting hazard. Good news, this stuff dries fast.

I have an Amana refrigerator, model #ABB1922FEB2. The ice that is made by the automatic ice maker has a foul odor and taste. The water that comes out of our faucet tastes fine, and it's the same water...

Off-taste, odor or gray color in the ice New plumbing connections? New plumbing connections
can cause discolored or off-flavored ice.
Ice stored too long? Discard ice. Wash ice bin. Allow
24hours for ice maker to make new ice.
Odor transfer from food? Use airtight, moisture proof
packaging to store food.
Are there minerals (such as sulfur) in the water? A water
filter may need to be installed to remove the minerals.
Water filter installed on the refrigerator? Gray or dark
discoloration in ice indicates that the water filtration system
needs additional flushing. Flush the water system before
using a new water filter. Replace water filter when indicated.
See "Water Filtration System
To purchase a replacement water filter, model UFK8001AXX-750,
contact your dealer or call 1-877-232-6771 U.S.A. or

The exhaust systems are of a two-piece construction for production and five-piece construction for service.
Catalytic Converter
The catalytic converter fitted to the Focus range resembles a small muffler. Because of the high temperatures at which the catalytic converter operates, the vehicle body areas around the catalytic converter are protected by heat shields. The catalytic converter controls three emissions; Hydro carbons (HC), carbon monoxide (CO) and oxides of nitrogen (NOx).
Catalyst deactivation due to poisoning
Sulphur (S) in the fuel can cause deactivation of the catalyst.
Lead (Pb) in fuel can cause a severe deactivation at levels above 5 mg per liter of fuel. It is therefore essential that vehicles with catalytic converters always operate on unleaded fuel.
Zinc (Zn) and phosphorus (P) present in some oils, can cause deactivation if oil consumption is high.
The effect of sulphur is felt most if it is released from the catalytic converter as hydrogen sulphide (H2S). This has an unpleasant odor similar to rotten eggs. Changing the fuel manufacturer may help in reducing this phenomena.
To minimize H2S emissions, it is essential that the idle CO level is within specification and that the engine emission system is functioning correctly. For additional information, refer to Section 303-08A or Section 303-08B.
ani_caut.gif CAUTION: If temperatures exceeding 900°C are achieved the catalyst substrates will start to deteriorate. It is important that the cause is defined and rectified if subsequent melts are to be prevented.
Catalyst melts are normally accompanied by loss of power due to excessive back pressure. For additional information, refer to Section 303-07A or Section 303-07B.
High substrate temperatures are caused by the ignition or the fuel systems. For additional information, refer to Section 303-07A or Section 303-07B.
Misfires at high engine speed may result in an almost instantaneous melt.

When we start the car after it has not been started and engine is cold, we get a strong exhaust odor on the inside of the car until engine has warmed up

Is the exhaust loud? If not it may not be an exhaust smell. I work at an exhaust shop and we have seen a few vehicles with the same issue. More often than not, it ends up being a fluid leak (usually oil) that has flowed on to an exhaust manifold or front pipe and on start up the fluid burns off, causing the odor. Once the fluid has burned off there is no more smell. This is no to say the leak has stopped, but the odor is less noticeable when the vehicle is moving and the fluid burns off a little at a time as opposed to all at once like it does on start up. Hope this helps to steer you in the right direction, good luck!

Condensation dripping from range hood / filters

Am suffering the same problem. When dinner is being prepared on the hob and plenty of steam is being expelled by cooker hood fan drips fall on the hob. Have just discovered the cause one hour ago.

The steam is condensing on the electric motor stator casing. This mass of cold steel will always cause problems with our type of hood. Am waiting to talk to our kitchen installer to see what remedy he suggests. I would have expected the hood manufacturer to insulate the cold motor casing as part of the design.

I have a dayton kitchen exhaust blower mod no. 4hz65, 1/25 hp, 1550 rpm, 115 volts, 1.5 amps, 8 inches. it does not seem to do the job, do i need a stronger one?

Remember air will only move as fast as the size of the exhaust pipe in relationship to the fans ability to push. Make sure yours is the proper size for the fans volume.

Size of vent pipe

You will be fine with 2 bends in an 8 inch pipe. If you bend it more than 3 times though you will loose fan force. If you up to a 10 inch duct you will not have good fan force because the space is bigger.

Good Luck and Please Rate FixYa!

The vent is a 4 inch round opening.  Per the manufacturers specifications, you should only use 4 inch solid metal vent pipe, not plastic or metal foil vent pipes.
