Your best bet is to start in the middle, but you should buy a cheap humidstat ( most any hardware store). set the little humidistat somewhere in your house where you have sensitive wood or wood furniture, watch the "stat" for a couple of days and if it is too high or too low out of the comfort zone, change the setting accordingly. i.e. if the humidity is on the low end, turn your seeting up one or 2 more notices, and vice versa if too high. Too dry a house will not only cause a build up of statice electricity, but may also cause your furniture to crack, too high and things begin to grow mole. A humidistat will cost only a 2 or 3 dollars depending on how fancy you want it to look.

Do I use 50/50 coolant or straight coolant on 2001 ford Taurus


I use straight coolant on my 01 Ford Taurus. I'[m sure you can get a way with a 50/50 mix in the summer months. You do not want to use 50/50 in the winter.

Tip

I'm having the FH error. I'm am currently having plumbing troubles after leaving...


This advice is for Kenmore Elite and Whirlpool Duet model FRONT LOADERS displaying the “FH” error code.

"F/H" indicates that either you have no water coming into the washer, or very little water.

If you have NO water coming into the wash tub after 30 seconds the error code is displayed. Check the following:

- Inlet water valve may be clogged. Clean inlet screens if necessary.
- Make sure water taps are on.
- Check inlet hoses for kinks or clogs.

If you HAVE water filling the wash tub, and after 8 minutes, 10.5 gallons of water has been detected by the flowmeter, but there has not been a detected a Pressure Switch trip, the inlet valves are turned off and the error code is displayed. Check the following:

- Make sure you don't have a siphoning problem. Click the following link for instructions: http://www.fixya.com/support/r587481-prevent_washer_siphoning
- Verify Drain Pump operation.
- Verify Flowmeter operation.
- Verify the Pressure Switch hoses are intact and connected properly.

To access the Drain Pump - UNPLUG the washer and take the lower panel under the door off by removing the three screws under the bottom edge. HINT: Propping the front feet of the washer up can make access much easier. I use a couple small blocks of wood. With the screws removed, the panel should drop down then come off. If it sticks, tap either side and it should come free. The pump is located directly under the wash tub in the front of the washer. Verify the electrical connections are good and that the pump is running. If not, click on the following link to check the pump for obstructions:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r385845-checking_drain_pump_in_whirlpool_duet

To access the Flowmeter and Pressure Switch – remove the three screws in the top panel along the back of the washer. With the screws removed, the panel should slide back, then, lift off. The flowmeter will be located on the left-hand side of the washer (facing from the front) between the inlet valve and dispenser. It’s a small white plastic device with hoses attached. The pressure switch is located on the right-hand side of the washer in the rear. It is a round plastic device with electrical connections and a hose attached.


There should be a tech sheet directly behind the panel or attached to one of the interior cabinet walls. Please refer to this sheet to learn how to perform diagnostics, how to locate the components mentioned, and the specific measurements required determining if the components are good or bad.

I hope this helpful. Please post back if you can't find the tech sheet and/or need further assistance.

In the winter when I am using my defroster or other interior heater to heat the interior and/or the glass and windshield, frost and or ice will build up on the edges of the windshield and or both side...


Hello, Thank you for letting me assist you. Let's look at your problem. I don't see a year or model for your vehicle so I will assume it is 1990 or newer. Manufacturers for some reason setup the defroster setting to activate the AC compressor regardless of what you have the temperature setting set to anytime it is turned on. This becomes problematic in some regions. I know when I drive through Pennsylvania during the winter I had to change my windshield washer fluid from cleaner to a 50 /50 mix of cleaner and alcohol/deicer fluid in order to stop the icing on my windows. Your problem though, as I understand your post, is there is ice forming on the inside of the vehicle.

The first thing to make sure you are setting the air control to recirculate instead of bringing air in from the outside. Second, make sure your using a 60/40 mix of Anti-Freeze in your radiator and that your radiator is properly filled. Normally you use a 50/50 but in your case you seem to be in a colder region and being a little stronger on the Anti Freeze will ensure you don't have a motor freeze. Next you need to check your thermostat. If you haven't replaced it in the last 5 years I would replace it. In colder regions you really need the thermostat to make sure your actually building heat up before water is cycled from the radiator. The next check is to make sure your actually getting heat to the heater coil on the inside of the vehicle. Start the vehicle and let it idle for about 10 minutes. This should be enough time for the engine to heat up and for the thermostat to open. Then turn the heater on with it set to your mid-level vents. If you have no heat coming through the vents you need to check your heat control valve and AC compressor. If your set to heat and not defrost the AC compressor should not be running. Make sure the control valve on your main heater line is open. The main Heater line is a 1" or 5/8" line that runs from motor to the firewall, it will have a control valve on it that is either cable controlled or more commonly vacuum controlled. The vacuum controlled system are more problematic as any vacuum leak in the system will cause it to malfunction plus the vacuum controller where you set the temperature inside the vehicle can cause problems and is hard to isolate. The good news is you can by-pass this control in the winter even if you only do it for testing. Remove the controller and put a straight pipe in its place. If you don't have water running through that hose either your water pump is bad or you have a blockage. Now, assuming you have water flowing through that hose, if the heater works when the vehicle is sitting and idling but it gives you trouble when your driving there is one more option. I don't recommend doing this except in very cold climates as it can cause you to overheat and you have to remember to undo this trick when it gets 50 degrees or warmer. You can partially block the radiator. Be careful not to fully block it and be aware this will cause more resistance when the vehicle is moving. They sell kits in cold climate areas that are made of canvas to partially block the air flow through the radiator but you can make one using cardboard or a piece of canvas just don't use anything plastic. This will reducing the cooling capacity of your radiator and increase the warmth of the water going to the heater core. I normally see these in areas like Canada, Colorado or Alaska in the winter but there are cases when you may need them in other states.
Let me know if this doesn't fix the problem. If none of this works then let me know what you found doing the checks I gave you and we will look at something else.

Dehumidifier - Which is the higher setting - 80 or 30?, please.


If you set your machine for 80 ... you will remove 20% of the humidity ... well ... sort of.

If you set it at 80% ... you will have a max of 80% humidity.

BTW - 50% is the most common recommended humidity for good health. In the winter, in the Northern Hemisphere, you may have to add water to the air to get to 50%

That answer your question?

Thanks for your visit and please come again ...

How do you plug the car in, in winter?


GOOD CARS dont need pluging in in winter or summer ALL you need is to drain the cooling system and refilling it with COOLANT 50/50{antifreez}as when your parked somewhere for a day or 2 and you carnt plug it in then you will need 50/50 antifreez only and drain it out in summer and add coolant only.
Have a goodday.

I have an RP 2100 pool heater and the minimum temperature set point is 65 degrees. Every time the pool/spa temp falls below 65 degrees, the heater automatically turns on. How can I either disable this...


Do you have an electrical switch that turns this heater on/off?
Can the heater be unplugged?
Is the heater on a separate circuit breaker that can be shut off for the season?

Ge Zoneline heatpump works fine in the summer but in the winter with 45 to 50 degree days the compresser hardly runs. By turning the thremostate you can get it to run for a short period. I have 6 of these...


These Ge Zonelines have and ambiant Temp control on the unit when the temp drops it drops out the compressor and goes to electric heat. This keeps the unit from getting iced up. They do go bad and sometimes they shut off to soon. I just replace them and everything goes back to normal. They are located on the outside part of the unit. Just slide out the unit and it is located I beleive on the right side of unit Rus.

Your first problem is the AEV1000 come with a Dehumidistat on not a Thermostat.
Best place in Summer time is 90% or unplug the unit if you open your windows.
Best place in winter time is around 40%-50%

You can test it out by disconnecting the power cord, wait five minutes and plug it back in. If it retains the original settings you are good to go. If you are wondering before purchasing a new unit ask before you buy.
