Danby wine fridge making noise


If I checked out the right video it sounds like a fan motor. After a fan motor heats up and with age the fan will leak a little oil, the oil will become to thin and not cote the bearings well enough. It sounds like the fan trying to start back up after stoping. I would track down the fan motor and replace it.

Transmission flush time


There is no question there
While some may not agree with
me I would never flush a transmission
You risk getting particles in the solenoids
Don't do it ,not necessary
Also the shop may brake off the cooler
lines & butcher them to repair
I once owned a trans shop,take my word
You change trans & power steering every 3 years
on all vehicles from the time they are new or those
item are going to fail,again trust me they will
Fluid only last a couple seasons & the heat breaks them down

Wine cooler has no light or power working it simply shut down


you want to check power coming into unit... do you have power at the switch... there was alot of issues a ton etime with there power control switches and thermostats... check incoming power to unit and see if the switch has failed... also these units have small controls on them that will fail from time to time. you are going to have to see where power has failed at.

Leaking from the bottom


If the water cooler is more than 10 years old, the cathodic rod is probably all used up and the tank itself is taking a big hit with corrosion. Replace the water heater if the above is true. Otherwise on newer tanks, pull the heating element access panels, scoot aside the insulation, and look for leaks. Look for leaks at the spigot and at the top connections. For gas units, look for leaks only at the plumbing connections. Gas heaters might last 15 years before replacement is needed.

Haier wine cooler produces intermittent loud "motor" noises.


Turn the unit around so you can hear the compressor (large black small basketball size unit lower left) if the sound is coming from that then it is probably lost lubrication or just failing. "These usually last forever but.... they do fail. I am not sure if this one (loke mine) has a samll fan. Clarify the noise for use and we can tell you what it is. a constant tapp tap tap fast paced is the compressor going out or out of lub etc. . A ting ting ting may be a fan... Robert-Aptos

My Emerson Model FR23RD is not working due to a power outage and I do not remember the cost of it a year ago, can anyone help?


I have seen this unit on sale for 79.99 @ Target many times over the last year or so.
In fact, it's that price there now and also at Amazon.com.
The highest price that I recall seeing was probably 99.99

I have a problem with my heating system. It is about 10 years old and has had the ignitor, combustion blower motor, and programable thermostat replace in it's lifetime. The system worked great last year....


sounds like its not proofing flame. it has a sensor usually like a needle sticks out into the flame that tells the gas valve the flame lit and is burning so its ok to keep sending gas, if its fails to proof flame then burner shuts down, then it tries to relight 3 times then locks out on fail safe. the blower will sometimes run continually once that occurs to highlight a failed condition. every time you reset it will try again 3 times then shut down. lp gas is very dangerous, even i do not work on it as the gas acts like gasoline and lays around. not like natural gas that disperses well. if you see the flame sensor try gently cleaning it with a little emory cloth. also a loose ground can cause this. check tio be sure any green wires are snug , they actually flow volts to ground through the flame on some to proof, thats why no ground no flame. if that fails then the board is most likely problem. change wire for wire , or get generic replacemant and follow directions exactly. good luck.some ignitors act as a flamre proofer as soon as they are done igniting! rarely do they fail to perform both funtions.

Frequent interruptions of washer


This is most likely the brushes on the motor. Intermittently failing due to wear and tear. I *could* be the motor but the brushes are very cheap in comparison.

On most washers the brushes are < £20. Time to fit is less than 0.5 hours.

You have three options

1/ If you are or know someone who is very technical and confident - once you have the right parts should be able to install them. (Unlplug the unit before touching!!!)

2/ If you have a service contract use it, they should provide parts and fix.
3/ A service engineer is your last option - say £90 callout + parts. (On certain washer units parts are free up to five years old - but you have to pay the call out fee)

Please dont forget to rate me, thanks!!
