The compressor goes on of at least 12 times a day, is that normal? I don't think it is and I am worried it is using a lot of electricity. Please let me know what I can do. I don't open it constantly and I am the only one using it.... Thank you Gabrielle

The compressor will shut off when the refrigerator and freezer reach the designated temperature. Provided your food is keeping cold this is normal.

Does the Fan on a Haier HD456E always run,

I believe the fan is designed to run all the time, and no, it costs very little to run an 18w fan. You can use a timed socket, or switch it on and off when needed. I don't believe the Haier has specific switching times.

I also need a product key for an office 2007 trial version,; thanks a lot for your help it's very important.

I don't think you need a product key for the trial version. trial versions are normally free to download and use for a limited period which is usually 60 or 90 days. the trial period is to give you time to see if you like the program before you buy the full version.

you can download the trial of microsoft office directly from microsoft. I don't think you can download microsoft office 2007 any more, but they definitely have office 2010 that you can download. office 2010 is more up to date and will probably be more useful than office 2007 anyway , which is a bit out of date these days. the website is:

Hi Bryan, it does sound like the battery, if it is a 12 Volt system, just connect a set of jumper leads from a 12 Volt battery, another bike car etc. and see if it makes a difference, i think you will find everything works fine with a new battery.

Sparks from nailer

Do not worry.This is quite normal. It is the metal driver hitting the head of the nail.There are no electrical components in a pneumatic nail gun so this is pure metal-on-metal strike sparks. You may find it is more visible on certain nails than on others. But do not worry. It is normal. You may find the sparks reduce after time as the driver wears a little or takes on a certain shape.

All sounds normal though. Do not worry :)

Yes it is normal for them to run hot, a lot depends on the ambient temp.
If it is working normally then you have no worries, but if it is running continuously , then there is a problem with it.
Make there is adequate ventilation, and that the thermostat is set correctly.
