    It is the new insulation material they are using now. I had to throw out my a/c because of mold that formed on the styrofoam. So now the landfills can be bombarded with unusable a/c's. Waste of money too!

Ice maker was jammed or not working so I pulled the tray out. Inside the tray was a plastic piece about 3 inches long with a piece of styrofoam on it. Inside the maker there is now a white cord han


Good Morning Friend,

I understand the ice maker was jammed on your Frigidaire refrigerator, model# FGHB2844L. I also see that when you pulled the tray out, there was a 3 inch plastic piece with a piece of styrofoam on it. Now there is a white cord hanging inside the ice maker. I suggest contacting your local authorized technician for further assistance. They will be able to determine what exactly is needed to repair your ice maker. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

You need to remove all of the styrofoam packing material.
Any insulation material would be installed inside the body of the fridge/freezer. The packing material is there so anything inside the compartment (like metal shelves, plastic holders, etc. don't bounce around during shipping and either scratch up the interior, or break. That is all that it is there for.

They have changed thier manufacturing proccess, so it is not uncommon to see the styrofoam. As far as the light shining thru, you might want to chack and see if you have the vent setting in the open position. If it is in the open position, the square flap will be open, and depending on the model and design, you will be able to see light. The vents purpose is to let fresh air in the home, when the A/C is running, but it is not automatic, so the vent flap will stay open, till you close or turn off, the vent setting.
I hope this helps, please rate me, and contact me back with any questions.
Sincerely,
Paul Gibson

I need to replace the styrofoam form for my primo viaggio seat. I believe the part is mmsp0008


Hi, I figured I would post the outcome since I was searching for resolutions last night. I called Peg Perego. The piece that is cracked on mine (the top of the center section of the headrest) can be replaced with a new headrest piece for $32.99 (including shipping). The new piece does not have stryofoam though. It's just a heavier material (almost pillow-like). The representative that I spoke to, however, said that if the styrofoam was a clean break (meaning not in a whole bunch of pieces) it's still safe to keep it together under the cover and use the car seat as normal. Apparently, that's not what's really protecting the baby anyway. To be honest, I don't even think that I broke the styrofoam while taking the cover off, I think it was broken beforehand probably by just use and the weight of the baby. I will get some styrofoam glue and duct tape and just secure it and put my sparkly clean cover back over top of it. I think it's fine for use. Thanks and good luck to others with this issue out there!

Need to access inside of Carrier air conditioner.


After removing the cover and filter, you should be able to see the fins for cleaning. If there is styrofoam in front of the coil, it should not be there for proper operation.

GE Zoneline PTAC Leaking


Hi Julie,
Is this a newly installed unit? The problem sounds like the sleeve is improperly installed. The sleeve should slope approximately 1/4 inch downward from inside to outside. This way the water will run to the back of the pan where it will be picked up by the slinger fan, or drain to the outside. Most likely this is the cause, not the styrofoam pan. If you need further info, you can contact me at greg.mcnary(at)airdistributors.com (replace (at) with @) and I can get you detailed installation instructions.
