Whirlmore 110.72904100 Gas Drier Lint Is Escaping From Somewhere.

02 December 2013 - 11:23 AM

 Serial # ML 1301498


                        This half of a ten year old laundry pair is decorating our humble abode with lint.It is not escaping from the metal venting, so deeper,darker forces must be at work.The filters seem to lose their felt gaskets much too soon,{ It's on its' second one.} and are likely a contributing factor. Is there a suitable adhesive commonly available to re-attach the gasket?

                  Also, the gasket always seems to loosen in the same location. It this an potential issue with the filter receiver, or is it the nature of the beast? Finally my most dreaded scenario would be that the felts in the drier drum need replaced.I wonder how much fun THAT would be? The last time I tackled a job like that was with a '69 Maytag gas drier. I have no fond memories of that adventure of 25 years ago,when I was in better health. :)

                Any and all comments,advice or snide remarks are welcome. <VBG>



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

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.

Frigidaire Model LEH1642DS0 Over/Under Washer /Drier Combo

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.

I was asked about one today. The last EWH I had my paws on was made when Truman was in office.

Kenmore 363.8691582 Refrigerator-Freezer Making Noise

21 January 2012 - 04:51 PM

This unit belongs to friend two time zones away.I need to get the lay of the land here.From what I've gathered, it's made by G ood E nough.I don't know when it was built, so I don't know if it comes from the suicidal compressor era.I hope to obtain an audio recording of the ruckus post haste.

Any and all input is welcome as far as age and feasibility of repair
