Im fitting a show tray in an en suite the stair way comes up underneath so if I fit the shower tray to the wall about 3" of the tray will poke through the plaster board showing above the stairs.


Hi Chris:
Sounds like you've identified the two logical choices.
It may be preferable to raise the shower for at least 3 reasons:
1) Headroom and aesthetics of the stairway ceiling will not be affected.
2) The installation of the shower drain trap will have more space available.
3) It will be easier to provide structural support for the shower base.

Hope this helps.
Cheers

What is a sauna?


"A sauna is a small room or house designed as a place to experience dry or wet heat sessions, or an establishment with one or more of these and auxiliary facilities.
A sauna session can be a social affair in which the participants disrobe and sit or recline in temperatures typically between 70 degrees C (158 degrees F) and 100 degrees C (212 degrees F). This induces relaxation and promotes sweating.
Saunas can be divided into two basic styles: conventional saunas that warm the air or infrared saunas that warm objects. Infrared saunas may use various materials in their heating area such as charcoal, active carbon fibers, and other materials."

Problem with Sterling stem.when transfered to shower,still leaks


You did not tighten the stem enough, allowing the seat to rise just above the cavity where it will sit. You may also have scaling in this area preventing the seat from sitting flush.

I just bought a house with an amerec sauna. The


the 'easy' answer would be a tripped high-limit switch. Inside the generator box, there is a resettable circuit breaker to the heating element, on the top of the water tank.
kill the power to the unit, take off the shell and look for the pushbutton.
If that is the problem, there is a likely chance that the temp sensor in the shower is not working so it overheats and trips the high temp limit.

Air conditoner model gwhd5000 goldstar does not cool


Hi, first you will need to know, what type refrigerant,(freon) your a/c used, if you need to add freon, there's a leak in your a/c. you will have to find and repair leak, before you can charge/ add refrigerant(freon) . automobile a/c can be easily recharge (add) to system, but your window a/c unit, has the same principles but different approach, if you don't have experience, you will have to call mechanic, make sure you have a freon leak, before calling mechanic, plug a/c on let it work, put hands close to a/c, feel or check temperature of air blowing out from a/c, make sure compressor is working/running, fans could be working/ but compressor not, also put a/c thermostat to max, your model no. GWHD5000. means your unit is 5000 b.t.u, (british thermal unit) measurement of heat transfer, am wondering if a/c is to small for your space/room. making you think it needs freon, 5000. b.t.u. is for a small space,like a room 10' by 10' like a storage area or small bedroom, keep bedroom door/windows shut. measure you room/space/area , the bigger space/area needed to be cooled, has a chart, maybe you can find it on internet, any way a 10.000 or 12.000 b.t.u a/c is better buy, for normal room/space etc. so check compressor especially to make sure working, a/c could be to small for space/room, check it at night to see if it's colder. don't try to put gas/ freon yourself, could be very dangerous. but before calling mechanic, check those thing, mention before, could be your a/c are to small, for space/room etc. remember before attempting any repairs, disconnect power. good luck.

Viking range creating a lot of soot?


This is a definate sign of improper gas/air mixture. The flame needs to be even and blue.
Make sure the orifice is clean. Usually the burner (oven) will have a "Door" or "Shutter" type adjustment where you can turn it and add or choke off air. This is the primary air supply. The secondary air supply is usually supplied by louvers or vents close to the burner area.

Bottom rail fit on 1500D door in 28" shower stall...


Mark, I'm having different problems with the same door. Try "filing" down the ends of the bottom rail, where it is contacting the curved corners. You might have to buy a metal file to accomplish this. Go heavy on the adhesive caulk on the underside of the bottom rail. Make sure the shower base is clean and dry. You might have to push down with your arms for several minutes to get the adhesive caulk to stick. Good luck, I have to go back to my folks this afternoon, because I can't get the door panel in w/o it scraping the top rail. Ugh.
