Check for proper connections of the power cord, sounds like a nutral and hot wire reversed

nutral in the center, white
black and red to the outside
green to frame ground
this is if you are using a 4 wire cord


three wire cord
black to outside screw
red to outside screw
white to center screw

grey three wire cord

How do I open the lock if I do t know the code? Tenant changed it when they moved? And I can't find your answer


Hi Dick

Are you talking about your actual lock on the door or a mobile phone? If it's your lock on the door.... I would suggest trying to find out your landlord can get a hold of the old tenant... or you have to call a locksmith who will have to take a look. First, call your landlord and get them to contact the old tenant to see if they know the code.

I'm a tenant, everyone & pretty much everything is ok except this one tenant that lives in the apt.directly under me! We are both in our 60's! He puts his tv/music on really really loud starting at around...


He probably has hearing problems. Try talking to him nicely about it and mention that he could buy a wireless headphone system for his TV which isn't too expensive. This way all are happy.

My 7yr old Amana PTAC unit, Model PTH123B50AJ sometimes works and sometimes not. I had a repair tech check it & he told me the control board was bad and they wanted $440 to fix it. I told him no,


EBay often has the control boards for Amana heat pumps, and installing them is fairly straightforward, provided you have some experience with electronics, a soldering iron, etc. Amanapartsonline.com may also be able to sell you the part, which should run between $50 and $150.

Given, however, that the thermostat is also showing problems, as well as what parts are going for these days, I'd seriously consider upgrading to a new unit and selling the old one on Craigslist to offset the cost a bit. If you can find an HVAC technician, someone who's learning HVAC, someone who just wants it for a guestroom where it need not work perfectly or a landlord who can afford to have a secondhand unit fixed and put it in one of their properties for their tenants to buy your fixable old one for a few hundred dollars and a new one only runs about $700, your upgrade will cost less than having the 7-year-old unit repaired, plus you'll be recycling.

Wye have had our dehumidifier in our basement for years with no problems. Yesterday it only sucked up about 2" of moisture. Same today. We had a big rainfall and my hubby would have emptyied it...


First of all your landlord HAS to do something about a mold problem. No questions asked. Tenants have rights too. Mold is a very serious issue. Sounds as if the compressor has quit or it is out of refrigerant. It would cost more to repair it, you need a new dehumidifier! GOOD LUCK!! AND THAT'S THE LEAST YOUR SLUM LORD WILL HAVE TO DO!!!

I'm a landlord and my tenant's oven will not heat up to the proper temperature intermittently. I had a guy come out and test the oven and it works fine, yet my tenant is still complaining the oven is not...


Absolutely. That is the first thing I would think that would cause such a fluctuation of temperatures. BUT if it is a gas oven (WITH A PILOT FLAME) then FIRST consider the thermocouple needing to be changed. If the thermocouple keeps faulting it will shut off gas sporadically and keep the gas off until it resets temporarily on its own.

How many prongs are on amana NED5100TQ electric dryer? I have a new one being delivered today and currently have a 3 prong hookup


Generally you have to purchase the cord separate from the actual electric dryer. Therefore, call the company and tell them you have a 3 prong outlet, that way they can install a three prong plug. Many times, they bring both plugs with them and do the plug install on site. Enjoy your new dryer!

Used dryer 74602 not heating


If the lower front cover comes off remove the cover and vacuum around heating element and surroundings. A lot of time there is a lot of lint build up and the heating element will stay off for safety.
once this is done you should be fine.

Another place to check is the exaust hose. Make sure it is not blocked along with the vent that leads outside. If this is blocked it will cause the dryer to go into shut down mode.

Hope this helps.
