Dont let anyone fool ya but any a/c can be fixed it just depends on how much youll spend before replacing it. if it is cracked or broke and lost the freon charge depending on how bad or hard it is to solder it back or if its on the round rings of coil will depend on the cost .I am guessing but i would think worts case would be approx.$200.00 to $300.00 to fix and replacement may be a better option cause not too many people will warranty this type of repair.good luck and i hope you can respond with what the outcome is.

How can you buy just the saw for the 8" 2 in 1 pole saw.


after looking at reviews written on

Robert

Tried chain saw. Working on limbs about 12 ft above ground.
First limb about 3 inches diameter, Oak. Worked fine.
Second limb same size. Cutter slip off branch could not stop the saw from hitting ground. Broke case where it attaches to pole.
No parts, and no way to repair it as company had no idea what kind of cement/glue I could use. So one branch cost me $120.00.

Like Robert my saw hit the ground and busted in the same spot (this will happen to you sooner or later) and you can not get repair parts, its now a door stop.
Pros: Easy To Use, Light Weight
Cons: Can Not Get Repair Parts
I am guessing you mean the entire cutting end of the saw too, I would get a new one either same model so you have a spare pole or find a another brand that definatly sells spare parts.
Ive never used a electric polesaw but have done alot of work with with longer petrol and shorter hydrolic polesaws, even top of the range they can be broken easily always keep the chain sharp, cut one branch at a time or small clumps on a hedge.
Commonly they get dropped cause they get really heavy extended a shoulder belt helps alot as do coffee breaks.
Or they get jammed in the branch being cut which can be really dangerous with a half cut branch, be ready to run.
Also never use from a ladder

Busted oil pan


Oil pickup tube is likely bent as well, replaced that with the pan?
The click is either because the starter was hit as well or the bent tube is blocking engine rotation. That's on the optimistic side, there could be other damage to the engine or transmission causing this if the starter, battery and power connections check out.

Ac outside..copper tubes freeze up,not cooling well inside


No! Check the condenser isn't clogged up first. Then check all internal filters and fans. Check for leaks with an electronic detector and repair any leaks before vacuuming the system and maybe then replacing the refrigerant.

My wife hit a limb and broke the passenger side mirror so that it is hanging loosely and will not operate properly. How do I fix it?


check the mounting bracket if its broken you'll have to replace that , also, check the mount on the door itself, they get bent and with a little TLC can usually be bent back in place,, remove the inside trim piece to the mirror mount inside the door , from there you can see the mounting bolts that hold the mirror in place, if the actual plastic section of the mirror got broke, there is no real fix for that , I suggest getting a replacement at a local junk yard,

Timing belt broke is this a low tolorance enging


A 1991 GEO is worth scraping if this is your problem
A water pump is also needed to replace with the belt
It is a rule of thumb for the belt drives the pump as well
Think about selling it to a local kid as his first car that he has to fool with. The monet to fix it is really not worth investing into it
The fuel pump for these cost more than the worth of this car now

My ac ices up and doesn't put out cold air


RV AC is not my specialty but icing up is caused by only one thing; a restriction in the refrigerant line. The restriction is usually caused by the unit being low on refrigerant (needs to be recharged) but could also be from another cause such as one of the lines being bent/kinked or a compressor problem that let oil or something else into the lines.
Since the unit is probably low on refrigerant charging it up will cure the problem, however you'll still need to determine why it's low - just older and the leak was over time or a leak in some component of the coil or line set.
You may be able to recharge it yourself or your RV service man can either do it or point you to an HVAC tech with the appropriate experience.
Good Luck

Copper waterline is broken


Hi .. there should be piping connectors at each end of the tubing. I would disconnect those connectors andtake them to the building supply store and get new fittings and a new supply hose. The new hose does not need to be copper,. you do not need to cut the existing fittings off the wall or the fridge, the new fittings, or new hose can connect directly to the old fittings. my tool of choice is a pair of crescent wrenches

My car is shaking really bad, feels like I keep hitting bumps, even when I'm not...when driving down the highway if I let go of the wheel, it moves itself back and forth really badly...feels like it is...


SImple solution would be the wheels need to be balanced.

Not so simple solutions are
(1) tires that have delaminated the tread or some other failure (Very bad, could result in a blowout, need to be replaced)
(2) Need front end alignment
(3) Rim bent from hitting pothole or curb.

If tires look ok, are not worn out, and don't appear to need replacing, I'd start by getting them balanced. Most places you buy tires today offer road hazard & lifetime balancing, so this may not cost you anything if you return to the place you purchased tires from.

Once on the balance machine, they should be able to determine if items 1 or 3 apply. That just leaves item 2 to consider.
