My KPRA pasta roller leaks oil or something black all over the pasta. It was a gift. I have not receipt and nothing I've tried stops the oil so it's useless.
I don't know the answer but I will take a guess.
I expect the gears at the ends of the rollers have been lubricated by something unsuitable that for some reason has degraded, become liquified and is escaping onto the food.
The gear cover(s) should be removed and all traces of the lubricant washed away with petrol, paraffin or some other degreasing fluid applied with a stiffish paintbrush followed by a wash in hot detergent water, rinsed and allowed to dry thoroughly.
The gears should be lubricated with a smear of special non-toxic food machinery grease which is white. You might be able to buy a small quantity from your local bakery.
If you can't obtain a small quantity of special grease a few drops of a good vegetable oil might do the trick but I would tend to opt for tallow or lard.
You will probably discover the item will need a "maintenance service" periodically...

How much water do I throw into the Model sc-160h compact steamer?.
I suggest you don't throw water around when using electrical stuff - far safer to carefully pour.
I don't know the answer but certainly don't overfill, half full is plenty or there is a danger of it sputtering boiling water out as well as steam.
Fill the container almost to the top and tip it into a measuring jug - divide the quantity by two and you will have a realistic maximum...

I recently bought Model 50011 timer. I followed instructions but the dehydrator is not working in the L position when I plug the timer in. Does this work for dehydrators?
I have no experience with dehydrators but I know of nothing that makes them electrically different to any other appliance. Clearly as it only has two prongs it is a double insulated device and doesn't need a ground connection and this is common with various other devices that might need controlling with a timer.
As long as you connect your appliance to the power pin receptacles of the timeswitch and ignore the ground, it should work if the timer has been set per instructions - as it is basically an electric clock, if it is working the timer dial should move indicating the current time. The connection to the timer can be tested by moving the override switch found on the lower right of the timer, when your dehydrator should be permanently switched on.
