My 1990 mighty max is leaking gas out of one of the steel lines from the fuel sending unit on top of the gas tank. where can i get a new fuel sending unit or what should i do?

yes it is more than likely the hole problem. haha. but yes it can be fixed . If you can take the tank down one way to fix the leak is to wash it down with soapy water to get rid of any gas fumes, including inside the lines. Check the entire tube for holes on either side ,if the unit is badly rusted its not worth fixing, if not, sand leaking area down with plumbers tape and if you can solder water pipes then simply solder it. re -install unit . However if you cant or would not rather solder it a new one can be purchased at your local parts store in many cases or definately the dealership at the cost of a couple hundred dollars. Personally, I solder many of these as well as fuel tanks at less than a fourth the cost. Make sure you blow compressed air through the liner on the unit and filter sack to get rid of unwanted water.

Gas is not getting from gas tank to Carburator .. 1987/88 Wrangler 42. engine was recently rebuilt .. gas tank sending unit was removed and repaired .. fuel line was blown out with air compressor. fuel...

Make sure you have the lines attached correctly on the sending unit and make sure there no small holes in the line. The pump pulls fuel and will draw in air. To make sure the pump is good, attach the tank side to a container of fuel and see if the engine starts. (keep the container below the pump or it can start a siphon and appear to be OK when it's not)
If the repair to the sender involved soldering up a line leak, make sure the line is not still leaking and that the line has not filled with solder.
It's a really simple system...there are no "trick" items there. If everything is intact and the pump is good, it has to work!!!

Everything works on the unit but it does not get cool

You can purchase a bullet piercing valve port to install the refrigerant your unit takes. Refrigerant is available; however, some are much more expensive than others and it is necessary to use the exact type of refrigerant your unit was designed for. The prices of R12 and R22 are astronomical. If your window unit uses either of these two refrigerants, you would be well advised to invest your money in a new unit rather than repair what you have.

Though this is probably not news you wanted to hear, I hope the information is very helpful to your decision-making, moving forward. :-)

While hooking up a refridgerator ice maker, I (like an idiot) pierced to wrong line. Hot instead of cold. How can I repair the hole in the hot supply line?

Not to worry,just leave it.With the minimal amount of water your ice maker uses,it will still be getting room temp water.

There is a tiny hole in the inside back and the freon gas leaked, is this repairable?

It should be repairable. You would need a Heating/ Air Conditioning repair shop to silver solder the hole closed, and possibly sweat on a valve to evacuate and refill the system. I would call around and ask if the shops do this sort of thing. I had a similar repair done on a window air conditioner, and it saved me money!

Pierced hole in smeg freezer is it fixable

The only repair for this is to replace the evaporator, this requires serious technical skill in

Usually this type of repair costs more than you will want to spend, it is not
covered by any warranty I know of.

Most techs will not want to attempt a repair of this nature due to the near impossibility
of getting all the moisture out of the system, and the very real likelihood of a service call back.

In future Only use hot water to assist in defrosting, or let defrost naturally before putting back into service. Never use any device to pry or poke at the ice.

Look thru the grill area at the front of the car. You will sea a radiator-looking thingy. This is the coindenser for the A/C system. Look closely for any indentations or holes... Usually, if there is a hole, it will be oily around that area where the hole is. The condenser is very susceptible to getting perforated, and as soon as a hole pierces the aluminum, the gas will escape. The condenser is very difficult to repair, if not impossible.
