#242935 Field Note-Before Using Furnace The First Time This Fall...

Posted by RJ Kanary_old on 22 November 2012 - 01:34 PM

Those of you that have heating plants with draft inducers might want to add one more item to the "Remove And Inspect List". With the upswing in the stink bug population, especially in the East,these mostly harmless creatures can perform their own sort of devilment.
I just removed the draft inducer from my Tempstar {Inter City} NTC 5100BTC1 gas furnace because of the noise emanating from it at start up.Removal and inspection of the centrifugal blower revealed about half a cup full of stink bugs, in various stages of disassembly.Not a pretty sight, and not too savory of an odor, either.
I don't know if they entered through the combustion chamber air intake, or if they rappelled down the flue. Either way,the quantity they are available in can have a negative effect on inducer efficiency.Another item for the "Before Use " list.

#241071 Frigidaire Model LEH1642DS0 Over/Under Washer /Drier Combo

Posted by RJ Kanary_old on 20 October 2012 - 02:34 PM

This is a over-under combo model....The drier is squeaking up a storm and
driving me nuts...Can't figure how to get the front off so I can remove what
ever is stuck between the drum and frame.
