Fridge not cold enough

The higher the number the colder the temp is supposed to be.

In order to prevent the formation of bacteria and other such organisms to affect food the way it does, the ideal temperature range of refrigerators has been mentioned here. Before we look at these settings, it is important to know the format in which temperatures are represented within a refrigerator. Commonly, you will notice a dial representing the figures 1-5 or 1-9 in the refrigerator, and a dial representing the letters A-E in the freezer. The ideal setting is usually in the middle of such figures.

If the dial is in such a format in your refrigerator, try a setting at 3 if the range is 1-5, and at 4 if the range is 1-9. For the freezer, a setting at C is suitable.

The ideal temperature in the refrigerator ranges between 34 degrees F - 38 degrees F or 1 degrees C - 3 degrees C. So that foods such as vegetables and fruits remain fresh and crisp, the temperature may be set around 38 degrees F or 3 degrees C.
The ideal temperature in the freezer ranges around 0 degrees F (-18 degrees C) or lower.

I have Honda Activa 2005 model. Recently I have been experincing with the starting problem with the afore said vehicle. I took it to different service centres as one were not able to solve the problem, but...

    • 1 Locate the 17-digit Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) printed on the frame of your motorcycle. This is often stamped onto the right side of the steering head, where the front fork is mounted on the frame. The VIN is also imprinted on a metal tag located on the left side of the frame above the motor.
    • 2 Locate the first character. This letter or numeral represents the country of manufacture. In this case, a "J" for Japan should be present.
    • 3 Locate the second character, "H." This represents the name of the manufacturer, Honda.
    • 4 Locate the third character. This letter or digit represents the vehicle type. Most Honda motorcycles use a "2," which refers to a motorcycle, although "A" or "1" may also be used.
    • 5 Locate the fourth through the eighth characters. These letters and digits are used by each individual manufacturer to identify the model or engine type of the motorcycle. For example: SC57 refers to a CBR1000RR sport bike, while RC040 refers to a CB750F motorcycle.
    • 6 Locate the ninth character. This is a check digit that ensures that no two machines built in the last 30 years will have identical VIN numbers.
    • 7 Locate the 10th character. This letter or digit represents the year the motorcycle was manufactured. A "6" would represent 2006, while a "Y" would represent the year 2000. The letter code descends from "Y" to "A" (1980).
    • 8 Locate the 11th character. This letter or digit represents the specific plant where the motorcycle was manufactured. In this case, "M" refers to the Hamamatsu plant in Japan.
    • 9 Locate the 12th through 17th digits. These are the motorcycle's individual serial numbers.

I moved into a house 3 years ago and inherited a Kenmore washing machine that is 30 years old and still working. The problem is the dial letter is worn off, so I am never quite sure what type of settings...

I too had a machine just like you. What I did was get a sharpie marker pen and slowly turned the dial and when I landed on a setting I would make that location. I would do that for all of the locations and test the water if it is cold, warm, hot and label appropriately. If you go to a store and look at the dials you will normally see three settings. On the left will be normal everyday setting, to the right is the more specialize settings and bottom is the permanent press settings.

Personally speaking I would be happy knowing where the hot and cold settings are and I can do all of my laundry. Good Luck and have fun

Can you tell me what year my Hotpoint was manufactured by these numbers Mod HDA997-01 Ser MS 625407X

The manufacture date is determined by the serial number. GE manufactures Hotpoint, so the following link explains how to determine the date code:

The date of manufacture is determined by the first two LETTERS in the serial number. The first letter represents the MONTH, the second letter represents the YEAR. So, according to the serial number you provided, your dishwasher was manufactured in July of either 1985, 1997, or 2009. If this is a fairly recent model, but not new, I would assume your dishwasher was manufactured in 1997.

I hope this helps you.

How do I turn off the beepers on my Bosch washer

To turn the beep off (or volume down) on the Exxcel 7 (BOSCH WAE24468GB you do the following:
1. Turn setting dial to off. 2. Turn dial one step clockwise (wait for panel to light) 3. Keep finger on 'RPM' button and turn dial another step clockwise and release finger. 4. The default setting of '2' should appear on the display, this represents the Button Signal Volume 5. Pressing 'Ready in' button cycles through the volume settings from 0 (off) to 4 (very loud!). 6. Turn dial another step clockwise to set the 'Information Signal Volume', which is also set to '2' by default. This is the one that annoys everyone at the end of the cycle!
All the manuals are on the Bosch website, if you know the model code.

Neff 5644 - how does it work!??

"e" is economy - ignore this there is a selection of spin speed - most people use the fastest half load is what it says - most people wash a full load so ignore the temp dial just selects wash temp. for normal washes set to 40deg can't remember the symbols on program dial but think they are fairly self-explanatory this machine is just a washer remember to check the filter regularly
