#247157 Precautionary Tale -- Clean your dryer vent

Posted by admranger on 25 January 2013 - 02:18 PM

I had the air ducts in the house cleaned (bad allergies) and part of the service was to clean the dryer vent out.  I'm thinking:  "bah, I clean that out once a year and make sure there is no build up..."


My dryer vents straight up through the roof of my single story house.  It's a 14' run straight up.  Odd configuration and one I now strongly don't recommend.


Anyway, the guy gets up on the roof with his long brush and starts going to work running it up and down.  I live in Vegas and yet it looked like a Minnesota blizzard around my house.  Big chunks of lint and lots of lint dust flying all over the place as the technician did his thing.  I'd estimate a half-pound of lint total (that's a lot!).


So I dodged a bullet there with that amount of build up.  I have added regular dryer vent cleaning by a professional to my house maintenance list.


Hopefully, this will help others avoid a big problem.  Get your dryer vents cleaned please!

#223147 Jenn-Air WW30430P Double Oven Door Alignment

Well, following Samurai's instructions and installing the mounts on the oven chassis sides did the trick. Now, why didn't I do that the first time? One big reason: fear of pulling the oven out -- turned out to be 100x easier than I thought it would be and there was never any tilting or other uncomfortable feeling that the oven might 'fall out', etc.

Everything is back to normal and the oven door closes just fine now.

Thanks for all the help!
