My wood burning stove gets way too hot and out of control!! One log and it’s blazing and scary. I adjust the airflow below and it does nothing with the fire. Help please??

This is an old question, but it is still on the homepage because spam was added to it and then removed. I'll answer it because I know the reason for this issue. Wood burning stoves normally have two air controls, one at the bottom of the stove and there should be a second one in the either the top of the stove or somewhere in the top foot of the flue. It regulates the air into the stove, but the top damper reduces the air draw created by the hot air rising. wood burning stove damper pipe - Google Search ..

I just replace the batteries in both the RF-tech Projection Atomic Alarm clock and the Remote Temperature Sensor and now it just keeps "beeping". How do I stop the beeping? Why is it beeping?

If your RF-tech Projection Atomic Alarm clock and Remote Temperature Sensor are beeping continuously after replacing the batteries, there could be a few reasons for this behavior:
  1. Battery Installation: Ensure that the batteries are inserted correctly in both the clock and the temperature sensor. Incorrectly inserted batteries can cause malfunction and beeping.
  2. Reset the Devices: Try resetting both the clock and the temperature sensor. This can often resolve temporary issues. Refer to the user manuals for instructions on how to perform a reset.
  3. Check for Error Codes: Some devices may beep to indicate an error or malfunction. Check the user manuals for information on interpreting error codes or troubleshooting beeping issues.
  4. Interference: If the temperature sensor is wireless, interference from other electronic devices or wireless signals could cause beeping. Try moving the sensor to a different location away from potential sources of interference.
  5. Test Mode: Some devices have a test mode that can cause beeping. Check the user manuals to see if there is a test mode and how to exit it.
  6. Low Battery Warning: The beeping may indicate a low battery level in either the clock or the temperature sensor. Even though you just replaced the batteries, it's possible that the new batteries are weak or defective. Try replacing them with fresh batteries to see if the beeping stops.
  7. Contact Customer Support: If none of the above steps resolve the issue, it's possible that there is a more serious problem with either the clock or the temperature sensor. Contact the manufacturer's customer support for further assistance or to inquire about warranty coverage.
By following these steps, you should be able to identify and resolve the issue causing the continuous beeping on your RF-tech Projection Atomic Alarm clock and Remote Temperature Sensor. If you're unable to resolve the issue on your own, contacting customer support for assistance is recommended.

Had saniflo turboflush fitted, appears to be working, but has now started coming on itself making whirring/grinding noise is this normal?

It's not normal for a Saniflo turboflush unit to come on by itself and produce a whirring or grinding noise. Here are some potential reasons why this might be happening and what you can do to address it:
  1. Float Switch Issue: The float switch inside the Saniflo unit is responsible for detecting the water level and activating the pump when necessary. If the float switch is stuck or malfunctioning, it could cause the unit to turn on unexpectedly. Inspect the float switch for any debris or obstruction that may be preventing it from moving freely. Clean or replace the float switch as needed.
  2. Check Valve Problem: The check valve prevents water from flowing back into the Saniflo unit after it has been pumped out. If the check valve is faulty or stuck open, it could allow water to enter the unit and trigger the pump unnecessarily. Inspect the check valve for any damage or debris that may be interfering with its operation. Replace the check valve if necessary.
  3. Electrical Issue: An electrical problem, such as a short circuit or wiring issue, could cause the Saniflo unit to activate unexpectedly. Check the electrical connections to ensure they are secure and free from damage. If you suspect an electrical problem, it's best to contact a qualified electrician to inspect and repair the unit.
  4. Overload or Overheating: If the Saniflo unit is overloaded or overheating, it may activate the pump as a safety measure. Check for any obstructions or blockages in the unit that may be causing it to overheat. Make sure the unit is not being used beyond its capacity.
  5. Installation Error: If the Saniflo unit was not installed correctly, it could lead to operational issues such as unexpected activation of the pump. Review the installation instructions and ensure that all components are installed properly and securely.
If you're unable to diagnose or fix the problem on your own, it's recommended to contact the manufacturer or a qualified plumber for assistance. They can provide further troubleshooting guidance and recommend any necessary repairs or replacements to resolve the issue with your Saniflo turboflush unit.

Just bought a house with Brizo fixtures. The shower has a handle that turns the shower head on one one top of it to regulate temperature. What is the trick to getting it stay where you want it?

Brizo fixtures are known for their quality and innovative design. To adjust and maintain the temperature setting on your Brizo shower fixture, follow these steps: 1. **Grasp the Handle Firmly**: When adjusting the temperature or flow rate, grasp the handle firmly but gently. Brizo handles are often designed for smooth operation, so excessive force may not be necessary. 2. **Rotate the Handle**: Turn the handle clockwise or counterclockwise to adjust the temperature to your desired level. Brizo fixtures typically have precise temperature controls, allowing you to set the water temperature to your preference. 3. **Find the Sweet Spot**: As you turn the handle, you'll notice a range where the water temperature is just right for you. Take note of this position for future showers. 4. **Avoid Over-Tightening**: Once you've set the temperature, avoid over-tightening the handle. Applying excessive force could potentially damage the internal components of the fixture and affect its performance. 5. **Use Smooth Movements**: When adjusting the handle, use smooth and controlled movements. Avoid jerky or abrupt motions, as this could lead to difficulty in maintaining the desired temperature. 6. **Check for Loose Parts**: Periodically inspect the fixture for any loose parts or connections. Loose handles or components could affect the stability of the temperature setting. 7. **Consider Professional Inspection**: If you're having persistent issues with the temperature control or if the handle doesn't stay in place as expected, consider contacting a professional plumber or Brizo customer support for further assistance. There might be an underlying issue that needs to be addressed. By following these tips, you should be able to adjust and maintain the temperature setting on your Brizo shower fixture more effectively. If you have any specific questions or concerns about your particular model, referring to the user manual or contacting Brizo customer support directly can also be helpful.

I just installed a replacement fixture in my bath. I have water pressure on the hot and cold focets bit no pressure on shower head, which is a hand held shower head.

To conserve water, many new fixtures incorporate a rubber washer in the extension head to achieve low-flow. You should be able to remove this washer to increase the pressure.

I have a Hito atomic clock. It's stuck in default Pacific time and I am on EST. Instructions tell you to set the time zone, but don't tell you how) and there isn't a setting/button on the back.

Press the TZ button: Look for a button labeled "TZ" on the front of your clock. Press it to enter the time zone setting mode. Select your time zone: Once in the time zone setting mode, you'll be able to cycle through different time zones. Choose the one that corresponds to Eastern Standard Time (EST). In some models, you might see abbreviations like "ET" or "E." Set the current time: After selecting the correct time zone, press the "SET" button. The hour will be displayed in the upper left-hand corner of the LCD screen, and the minutes will be displayed in the lower right-hand corner of the screen. Adjust the time using the appropriate buttons until it reflects the current time in your area. If you encounter instructions referring to a non-existant button on the back (one that your model does not have), try the following:
  1. Press and hold the "SET" button: Look for a button labeled "SET" on the front of your clock. Press and hold it until the display enters the time zone setting mode.
  2. Select your time zone: While still holding the "SET" button, use the appropriate buttons (usually labeled with arrows or +/-) to cycle through different time zones. Choose the one that corresponds to Eastern Standard Time (EST).
  3. Release the "SET" button: Once you've selected the correct time zone, release the "SET" button. The clock should now display the correct time for your area.

Can we replace a Triton Enrich 8.5kw shower that has broken with a Triton Enrich 10.5kw or will we need bigger cable?

The Triton Enrich 8.5kW shower typically requires a 40A MCB rating1. In contrast, the 10.5kW model requires a slightly higher 45A MCB rating. If your existing cable is rated for 40A, you'll need to upgrade it to accommodate the higher power requirement of the 10.5kW shower. Consult an electrician to assess whether your current cable can handle the increased load.

I can't get the batteries out of the Ozeri zb13-w scale. What's the trick to do that?

If you need additional guidance, you can refer to the user manual for the Ozeri Touch II Total Body Scale (ZB13) . I think there is a compartment on the bottom of the scale containing 3 AA batteries. A small flathead screwdriver or a plastic spudger can be helpful for opening the battery compartment on the Ozeri ZB13-W scale. These tools allow you to gently pry open the cover without damaging it. Although the model numbers are different, the battery removal process is likely similar for the ZB13-W scale. That may not be too helpful to know because I don't see a procedure described in the manuals! OZERI ZB23-W USER MANUAL Pdf Download ' ManualsLib Ozeri ZB13 download instruction manual pdf (mans.io)
