Refrigerators and Freezers


Freezers/fridges remove moisture from the air inside them while they work. At least in my unit the fridge and freezer compartments are connected by a couple little trap doors. One near the top works automatically. I assume it regulates the temp of the fridge part by using freezer air. The other is vented into the meat drawer at the bottom.
Moisture flows to the coldest part of the inside, much like humid air settles droplets on the outside of a cold glass in the summer. The coldest part is the coil assembly which would be behind a panel at the back of most freezers. Below this assembly and hopefully not covered by a panel is a drain hole. It needs to be clear for things to work properly. See if you can find it in the back bottom of the freezer.
If there is ice plugging it you need to clear it. Don't pick at it because the inside of a freezer doesn't like scratches and scrapes. Those create opportunities for rust if the unit lasts long enough. Put a few towels in the bottom of the freezer to catch overflow. Then pour the hottest tap water you can get slowly over the ice. Once it is clear the drain lets the water go into a pan underneath the unit and eventually evaporates. You will hear it when it clears.
Under normal operations this drain collects the water that freezes all over the cooling coils in the very back of the freezer. It is normally very little water. If it is blocked by ice this can point to a slightly bigger problem. You may want to see if you can remove the back panel of the freezer and check the coils for ice. This can a)take a while and b)have you removing a lot of assemblies just to get to one panel screw. So be prepared and don't start it when you have a freezer full of food. If you attempt it and find white fluffy looking ice all over your coils you will need to look below this stuff for an assembly that houses a heater. Mine looked like a long thin tube bulb, much like a halogen lamp. It's called the heater element and replacing it may just fix your problem. I got mine for about $50.
You might also want to make sure your fan and radiator assembly are clean. Inspect the air venting grill on the back. If that is gunked up or you can see that the radiator inside is gunked up, you should carefully remove the panel and vacuum as much as you can. This was a major problem for me because at one time because of indoor pets. If checked regularly it doesn't become an issue.

Flash From a Cameras on 3 Phase UPS

Possible interruption to customer load due to Photo Flashes. While testing a new service, we hope to be offering soon, the Dallas based engineering department has discovered that the use of a flash camera in or around the UPS may cause a fault in the unit that could result in the loss of power to the critical load. We have noticed two different scenarios: 1. While taking a picture of the inside of a running unit in the test lab, the flash affected the firmware,

resulting in a lock up. The unit did not transfer, it just shut off! 2. At an actual customer site, prior to doing a PM on a number of units, we wanted to test the new Thermal cam. Part of the test involves taking a digital photo. Upon turning the digital camera on while standing next to a UPS, the RF of the flash charge circuit was enough to interrupt the inverter drives. Fortunately, the unit did successfully transfer to bypass, but only after the loss of a few fuses.

What size belt??

The Eureka Whirlwind 4489 uses style U belts, and you can find the Belt Package Assembly- Style U 2pk at the following link:
The broken belt usually stays trapped within the housing, so when you remove the necessary pieces in order to access the beater bar, you should find the remnants of the original belt, which you could also use to determine the size you need for a new belt. You might even get lucky and find that the belt itself is ok, but had gotten derailed somehow! Also good to remember is that there is often a second belt sealed within the packaging and instruction manual, so you may already have a spare belt on hand if you stashed the owner's manual somewhere.
Hope that helps! Please rate as helpful if so :) Thanks!

Just how hard is it to replace the starter on a 94 Suburban 5.6L diesel myself? Looks fairly easy.

Obtain new or rebuilt unit. Might also replace the solenoid while you have the starter removed but this will have to be your desicion.
Disconnect the negative battery cable from the battery to prevent 'welding' while under the vehicle.
You may need to ellevate the vehicle and properly support the vehicle while working under it. Your need will be determined by 4x4 vs 2x4 and your physical size and need for work 'room'.
The starter is located on the passenger side of the engine near the exhaust manifold. It is cylindrical in shape(About the size of a small coffee can if it a 'old' style, about the size of a pint can of beer if the 'new' style). There are two bolts(Mine were 14mm heads yours may vary) holding the starter to the engine block. These will need to be removed and the starter supported. Then the wires to the solenoid can be removed. There are generally Two wires to the solenoid. These will require a 5/16" and a 9/16" socket or wrench but yours may be different.
Reverse the proceedure to install the new unit.

Bath Specs Comparison

Generally, the size of the bathing area in the bathroom will determine whether a 5-foot, 6-foot or corner bath is selected. If space is not an issue then other factors can be considered. Most people compare the features, performance, style, comfort and price of the various baths being evaluated.
