TRG18ML Amana refrigerator bent hinge problem

27 March 2014 - 12:04 AM

Hi group, my girl's piece of crap refrigerator Amana TRG18ML seems to have a bent hinge from her roommates. This refrigerator seams to be old and I can't buy new hinges. I replaced the seal and didn't realize before I did it that the hinges were the actual problem.


I can't find information on what to check or how to adjust hinges and I have to do this ASAP If anyone has a tip I'd appreciate it this is a model with the freezer above the refrigerator about 18-20 cubic inches is my guess.


The door open left to right so the hinges are on the right side if I face the refrigerator.


thanks Dave

Hi group,


I have a 1983 condo and it has an INTERNATIONAL COMFORT PRODUCTS FSM2X2400A1 AC/Heater unit. 1/4 hp 1.8 motor fla 1/60 phase test/max esp .12/.05 in. w.c. the unit was vacant for 2-3 years, blower works but the AC/Heater are not producing anything.


I have basic electrical skills and downloaded the FYI at the beginning of the forum from the Expert on basic testing. I was wondering if there are any other basic things I might test before getting an AC guy out to go up on the roof. I've had a lot of bad luck here and nothing has gone easily. I'm sure with that said I will need a new AC unit before I cry about that, I would like to check anything out that I'm capable of.



Thanks a lot, David

Ikea appliances - good or bad idea

06 November 2013 - 08:07 PM

Hi Master,


I found a crazy guy who is hopefully selling and installing a full ikea kitchen for me. My issue/question is; this guy is telling me has all the ikea appliances for sale so far he is saying about 30% off new but I'm a bit leary because I thinking about it, there is no warranty since i have no receipts, and I would like to know what your experiences are in servicing ikea appliances. I don't know who makes them or anything about them.


I appreciate the help and answers... Best David

1963 condo with wall heater replace with fireplace?

21 November 2012 - 01:38 PM

Hi I am in escrow on a condo in the Los Angeles, Ca. area. I am wondering if anyone has insight or information on swapping an old wall heater with a gas fireplace. Not much information on this online, when you walk in the front door your eye goes across the room to the wall heater, not the visual element I would like to see. The current wall heater is approximately 24-36" from a doorway on the left side the wall is approximately 7-8'.

Not sure how venting goes in an older place so wondering if I was to replace this wall heater would I have to move the vent if any or add a vent, if I have to add one in the wall it would go up between my unit and the unit above me, how would I then vent outside if this is necessary.

Thanks David

samsung dv337aeg/xaa sensor problem?

11 November 2011 - 01:53 PM

Hi group GF has a samsung dv337aeg/xaa lately the sensor dry settings were not working, I cleaned the sensor in the lint filter area and it seemed to work, but we're seeing slightly inconsistent results. With a mixed load of thin towels and large bath towels the thin are dry and the large are not, the GF thinks that's an issue, I think it could be in sensor mode it does not want to over dry. Anyway, now her assistant says the timer is not working properly but I just did a test and it did.

I know someone cleaned the vent out but it does have a long way to exit the house and it does not have an additional blower and it goes up 9 feet vertically.

Lastly, I did not see any bag with a manual on the back panel inside or out.

Thanks for the help... Dave
