Sounds like you are trying to hatch chickens. The heat tape is designed to keep pipes from freezing, and will not be warm enough for an incubator. Try a heating pad or electric blanket, or if you are really serious, you could just BUY an incubator

Sounds like fuel vapor lock. Check routing of fuel line,. Try to route line away from heat as much as possible. If that's not possible, wrap fuel line with heat resistant tape near heat source.

What is better to use in my snakes cage: a hot rock of a light bulb?


The best source of heat is through an overhead radiantsource so I would lose the hot rock. You should know that reptiles do not havethe nerves in their bellies to detect if they are being burned. So if the hotrock malfunction the reptile will keep sitting on it and can get severelyburned.

How do I set my thermostat so that it doesn't keep going off and leaving me with no hot water .I have a Honeywell digital thermostat.


The problem is not your thermostat. It is the person who told you that your AC would be your sole source of hot water. The purpose of heat recovery is to ASSIST with hot water production and reduce the current used by your water heater. The only time your AC heats your water is when it is working to cool (or if it's a heat pump, cool and heat) your home. Turn your water heater back on and let your AC help keep the water hot. It's not supposed to do it alone.

How do I Remove Magnesium Anode ?


The following page has instructions and a link to a video:
http://waterheatertimer.org/Replace-anode-rod.html

How to:
Rods are installed in top of tank.
Most are located under a 2" round plastic cover located on top of tank.
Some anode rods are connected to hot water nipple
Read owner's manual to see location of anode rod
See list of water heater manufacturers and brands to find product manual.
Before starting, turn off heater source: electric water heater: turn off circuit breaker; gas water heater move control knob to pilot.
Close shutoff valve on cold water side of water heater
Open bathtub faucet to relieve pressure and let air into water line.
Open drain valve near bottom of tank,, and drain 2 gallons of water.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Water-heater-will-not-drain.html

Use 1-1/16" socket for hex head rod
Rod will be rusted in place, use generous amount WD-40
WD-40 spray is flammable and will burn so be careful around heat source.
Loosening rod: go slow and check that water does not seep up when loosening rod because hot water can spew out hole if tank is very hot ... it is important to drain enough water out of tank to avoid accidental scalding.

Install new anode rod: One source says/ use pipe compound on thread instead of teflon tape. Other sources say use teflon tape. Either way, tank metal and anode metal must meet, so rod will work.

Lasko MyHeat Personal Heater, Black \r\n Model # 100 I want to use this heater in a reptile incubator, however the humidity will be higher then normal use. Will it be ok in that kind of enviroment for...


I would not use your heater in this enviroment for several reasons. First as you noted the extreme high hmidity, next depending on what species you are wanting to keep in your incubator, some have very sharp claws and the covers on your heater won't take much abuse. I don't know is this would work for you but we used to keep iguanas for our boys and used warming rocks to keep them comfortable during the winter. I hope this helps you. Thanks

Power window motor replacement, left front


First off check on e-bay for a replacement,then take door panel off,remove plastic from door sometimes I use a hot air gun or blow dryer to heat the tar so plastic won't rip,but if it does use duct tape to repair,then you have to remove the bolts holding the window regulator to door,remove glass from regulator some have metal clips and some you have to turn at an angle to slide the glass off,the whole window regulator assembly will with some trial and error and turning will come out the big hole in the door,also if you have power windows or mirrors be sure to unhook them before pulling door panel out to far.

Water pressure


IT MAY BE YOUR RADIATOR AS THE SOURCE OF THE PROBLEM, WATER PRESSURE DOESN'T CONTROL TEMPERATURE. THE TEMPERATURE IS REGULATED BY HOW WELL THE RADIATOR COOLS THE WATER COMING FROM THE MOTOR,WATER PRESSURE IS REGULATED BY SPEED OF THE MOTOR, CHECK WWATER PUMP AS WELL
