What the risk of having a electric stove connected directly to the outlet?

The outlet and power outlet wiring to the switchboard may not be rated to pull the extra current required by the stove.
The circuit breaker or fuse could blow best case scenario.
otherwise the wire in the wall could overheat and start a fire .
The power outlet could also overheat and catch on fire.

After the house fire will your insurance company pay or blame the incorrect wiring of the stove as the cause and refuse to pay ?

How do I clean lint from inside dryer?

You must unplug the unit and either access the inside from the back or front. You use a vaccum to suck out the dust and lint from all areas, especially around the heater and motor. This should be done every few years at least as there are more house fires caused by dryers than all other causes combined (including fire places). Make sure your hoses are clear and the outside vent is not stuck closed, also make sure the hose is not squished behind the dryer. A restricted exhaust system is the reason most dryers will build up lint inside.

Potential electrical cause from engine compartment fire that totalled vehicle

I would start by looking up factory recalls(the National Transportation Safety Board-NTSB,keeps records of these.If you received notice in the mail about ANY recall,and didn't respond or take the truck to a dealer,you're probably out of luck.(this IS a 15 year old truck!)

My Sony Bravia 40" has a loud crackle and pops about every 4 hours. Should I be concerned about fire hazard? Should I exchange it for another?

Yes,if it still under warrenty take it right away.Exchange it for another one.Probally won't cause fire,but it will kill ur power supply board sooner or later.It will cost u about $200 to buy another refurbish power supply board,and labors to put it in or cost u $$ some tv Tech. to put it in.

A5 grooming shear overheats

Usually a faulty electrical component breaking down.The insulation factor is deteriorating due to an electrical short in the component. Prolonged use will eventually shorten the 15 minutes and have it catch fire while in use. Get it fixed or ditch it before you get burned, electrocuted or it causes house fire

A/c unit outside will not come on.

More than likely, your AC unit is on it's own breaker inside or outside the house. If it is, it is very possible that the breaker is either flipped or blown. This is a problem I would HIGHLY recommend that you contact a professional for due to the nature. If you flip the breaker back on, you could cause a surge to the unit, thus "frying" it, or it could cause a fire inside/outside the home.

Furnace filter is black and sooty wall seem to be sooty

   By sealed unit you mean that the burner air comes from outside of the house?      You have checked the heat exchanger for cracks by removing the burners and looking with a mirror and flashlight, correct, or had a service tech so?
The furnace burners have enough air and are burning clean (blue) with just a tip of orange at the end? You bought the house new and the fireplace has never been used?  If it has been used to clean smoke for the house for whatwever reason I woudl start by havign the ducts cleaned.   Another possibility I have seen is insolation inside of ductwork breaking down.

I hooked up power to the playstation 3 and i went to go and hook up the uav chords to the tv for audio and picture and the playstation 3 was smoking and my tv caught on fire

sounds like a horrible short im sorry.
Call sony if you were under warrenty.
It sounds like you had a faulty power supply and it really caused a mess.
Why would your tv catch on fire though? Their isnt and source of power that travels through rca's that can cause a fire through your tv.

Mabye your Tv was faulty..

Give sony a call.

Good luck
if you need any more help ask away
