As a general rule for refrigerators with top freezer compartments, if you have water
leaking under fridge it usually is the drain line exiting the freezer compartment.
This is accessed by removing (usually 4) screws on the back panel and pulling
the panel forward and unplugging the fan, sometimes it is necessary to remove the
fan seperately and carefully unplug the fan.
in the center there will be a hole exiting the freezer, sometimes with an aluminum
wire in it to help keep the hole de iced. clean this hole out and squirt a turkey
baster or two of hot water in to check drainage. listen for the trickle under the fridge.
Remember to pull crisper drawers out and remove water as it has accumulated below.
If the temp control assembly
goes all the way to the back of the fridge, it may also have a
built in cup which clogs. It detaches by removing 4 screws and pull forward and
down then unplug the unit and slide out. Make sure to unplug unit before servicing.

IW709A Has water leaking underneath machine wondering what it's caused from. Hose underneath has a little bit a water showing. Maybe a split in hose is this possible?

I had a similar problem awhile back with my maytag washer,it had a steady little stream and I thought was the discharge hose but after checking the hose out it ended up being the seal in bottom of the pump, I set the front on some 2x4's and used my little mirror and flash light and could actually see drips I hope this is helpful to you thanks td

Gas smell through vents

You didn't specify what engine ou have, there are three options. Find the fuel rail. On one end you should see the fuel pressure regulator. There will be a small vacuum hose going to the top and a larger return line fuel hose coming out the bottom. Pull off the vacuum hose and see if gas comes out. If it does replace the regulator. You may have to start the engine for a little bit to see if fuel comes out the vacuum fitting.

A pin fell out of the bottom of the washer

The pin is just an alignment pin used during assembly at the factory. You need not worry about it. However the water leaking is a separate issue. The leak could be the pump leaking. But I suspect since that pin was knocked out of it's plastic holder during your move, the suspension traveled enough to damage the hose going from the bottom of the tub to the pump. Come of those hoses were a harder (read cheaper) corrugated plastic instead of rubber. It's an easy fix and I replace those plastic hoses with a rubber one.

Is it the power steering pump or the line that's leaking?

Stop driving it before you ruin the pump or steering rack. Replace any leaking hoses, flush the system with correct fluid and fill.

Replacing the Brake Fluid on the suzuki intruder

You may have a blocked clutch hose or a restricted outlet/leaking piston valve in the master cylinder. Remove the hose entirely and blow through it with compressed air. Good air flow means good hose. Now try the master cylinder (clutch lever), you should get a good flow of fluid with one press. If it barely releases anything, tear the cylinder down and check the outlet area and piston valving. It may need a rebuild kit or just replace the cylinder. Once you get the cylinder working, put the hose back and new fluid in the cylinder. work the lever a number of times, then bleed the system.

I connected our Dometic 2620 to propane line, no problem, but when I plugged it into power - nothing. No lights, no gas activity, nothing. Any hints?

Check your AC breakers, mine was on the same circuit with a GFI outlet that had tripped, took a bit of looking to find it, Good luck.

Refridge leaking water inside it...

Should be a little drain hole in the bottom rear of the fridge. Use a pipe cleaner or somthing similar cos it,s probably blocked. Quite a common problem.
