The trap in drain is likely plugged with pasta you can take pipes apart and clean out then reassemble. should do trick. first try putting ice cubes in disposle and chopping up this sharpens blades and may free up lodged pasta.

I put a new filter in my fridaire, but water dispenser not working, and ice maker not working


repairs should be performed by a qualified repair person. when replacing a filter make sure the filter properly installed. once secured get 3,1 gallon containers to purge the water line and reservoir. BEWARE! water may continue to run while flushing the water line. this is why you'll need 3 containers. once you are able to finish flushing the line and the water is no longer gray the flushing for the water dispenser is complete. dispose the ice in the container in the freezer. let the ice maker cycle a few hours then dispose the filtered ice. once copleted you're done.

Can you cook pasta in the microwave?


I love cooking pasta in my microwave as I don't have to wait for the water to come to the boil.

Put your pasta in a large bowl with lots of water and season. I cook my pasta for around 10 minutes and stir it half way through. Test one piece and if you want to cook it for longer just bung it back in.

How do you cook pasta? Do you boil the water with the pasta in or wait till it is boiling to add it?


In terms of water to pasta ratio, you should use around 4-6 quarts of water for every pound of dry pasta. Once the water has come to the boil add the pasta and then bring it back to the boil. Add some salt, stir occasionally and follow the instructions on the packet to find out how many minutes to cook it for.

Whenever I cook pasta the water boils over and causes a terrible mess. How can I stop this happening?


The most common cause of water boiling over when you cook pasta is if you cook it with the lid on the pot. Don't cover pasta fully with a lid. Either cook it uncovered or if you are in a hurry to cook it quicker, just partially cover the pot.

Also make sure you don't overfill the pan with water as this is another cause of overboiling.

Im trying to flush out the water system what do i have to do first?


First thing you should do is pick up a can of radiator flush and add it to the overflow tank.Drive the jeep with this cleaner in it for a couple of days and then you need to let it completely cool down,remove the rad cap and drain the rad,catching the antifreeze in a pan and dispose of it at a local garage that is authorised to dispose or recycle it.Next step is to remove a heater hose from where they go through the firewall and then remove the thermostat from the thermostat housing and the put the housing back in place.Run a garden hose into the smaller hose of the water pump to flush the engine and heater core,run water into the top of the rad to clean it out,water into the thermostat housing to flush the engine block.

Garbage disposal...won't drain


There should be a reset switch on the bottom of the disposal.
When using a disposal, always run water first, then turn on disposal. Then dispose food. Then keep water running until it all sounds clear before turning it off.
