Question about Kitchen Ranges

1 Answer

My renter says she gets a shock from the stove. But there is only when water is associated with the stove on. She even said that if the washing machine is on she can get a shock from the stove, which is 15 feet away. I have checked the wiring connection at the stove and everything is properly installed. I am very confused since I can not duplicate the shock.

Take your volt meter set it on 250 volt ac scale touch a frame of the stove with one lead and turn on the water at the sink and touch the sink with the other lead, you may need to add wire to one of the leads to get it to reach let the hot water run for several minuets before you touch the lead to the sink if you get a volt reading then you have an open water heater element in the water heater
the thermastat in the heater is calling for the element to come on power is applyed to the element but with it open the electricity is in the water
when you touch the range whitch is grounded and a sorce of water ie the heater YOU make the return path to ground when you touch the stove

WHAT IS THE PROBLEM IF IT IS LEAKING AND MAKES A THUMPING NOISE WHEN IT SPINS?


Sounds like a seal went out, it eather where water comes in or going out out of the machine and that's why it leaks. Its a lot of work but you would have to take it apart and fix, call repair man if you can't fix it, or stop using it asap. Could cuz a lot of water damage, as a renter call landlord asap.

On the spin cycle my samsung front load washer wibbles and vibrates badly. I have replaced the shocks but that didn't work. What else could it be?


Check that it is level and that all the water is draining out when the wash cycle is complete. Check that the wash drum and all associated parts are correctly in place and are secure. Check the drum for excessive play, replace defective parts.
Also look for loose objects from clothing that may be jammed out of site but causing centrifugal throwout vibration.

I just renter a house with a Rinnai R94LS water heater. The house and heater are 3 years old. 50-70% of the time I get a shower, the hot water suddenly stops after just 5-10 minutes and goes completely...


Its a tankless heater. It will heat water as long as it senses a large enough flow of water. Either the flow sensor is bad, or not sensitive enough, or you are using less water than it is set to work at. Try keeping a large flow running. Instead of a trickle, shut it off entirely.

Getting same green film on top of water that is the same color green as the copper piece in the salt water pump has turned


The two green colors may be associated somehow but when you say anything about green water I think it is more likely the water is turning green from algae. The best way to rule this out is to test the chlorine level and then shock with vinyl shock to about 10 ppm. If it is algae then the it may be cloudy but should turn more blue rather than green. If other chemistry is good such as salt concentration and stabilizer then running the pump, filter and chlorinator according to the Intex manual. When a pool is shocked the filter can get dirty quickly and then reduce the flow. For this reason make sure you clean the filter. I hope this helps.

Please vote on this answer. Thank you.

The renters used brillo to clean the stove top and now it's scrated. Can it be repaired?


A scratched enameled stove top can be polished if the scratches arent too severe.

You can try a rubbing compound to smooth out the scratches and then polish to bring back the shine.

Getting electric shock from water in washing machine and laundry


Yes, because there may be a problem with your incoming electric service. Call your power company to check out their equipment, if their equipment is ok, then call a reputable electrician, because the problem may involve your equipment

Take off the lower panel. Inspect the shocks too see if they are damaged. If they are OK turn the wash basket by hand if the knock is heard then most likely you have a broken wash basket.
