Honeywell temp thinger on wall

15 January 2014 - 05:10 PM

Do these things fail ever? I ask because today, the bedrooms on our top floor are super warm. The temp reads 75! No one has touched the thermostat and when I try to make the heater kick on by turning the wheel, it doesn't click. However I can hear the boiler running. Come to think of it, it might be running constantly!oh my oil!!!!! Any thoughts? Thanks for helping!!!!

Kitchenaid KUDR25SHBL0 whisperquiet plus dishwasher...issues

09 June 2013 - 10:27 AM

Hi All! neehow again with another request for guidance. My dishwasher is now making noise, like its chewing on eggshells, AND won't drain. Even when I hit cancel several times, it sounds like it is draining- but the pond of scum still sits at the bottom of the machine. No go.

So- The disposal is not new, it has been working fine- the electronics seem to be funtioning ok. I checked the FAQ's and am trying to narrow it down to the impeller or drain hose. What would both not drain and make this crunching noise?

My project for the week! Yay!


thanks for your help!


hot water heater leaking (# wx-203)

24 August 2012 - 07:25 AM

Dearest Wisest Appliance Sensei...Oh my goodness! Looks like from the papers of the install, this baby is 15 yrs old. the floor around the base is wet, and the water has leaked thru the wall/floor in the basement and into the playroom carpeting. At first sight, the top of the tank has rusty water pooling, and around the pipe inserts- where a big plastic cap and lots of insullation sit- the bolts and metal top are all rusted. Then on the side where the relief valve is- the valve itself has a patina colored corrosion, and where it attaches to the tank, is a lovely stream of rust colored streaks- from water leaking- streaming down to the floor.
I will try to upload a photo of this beast.
Is this a plumber fix, or can my Super Awesome funtime Husbandtaduh fix it?

Many thanks to all your help!


Edited to add:

this is the hot water TANK...not the heater...(uhh dingy blonde moment)

Wrong Model #- that one is the pressure water tank. sorry!

LG WM1814CW - no error message - no water and sounds like gears grinding

23 May 2012 - 02:15 PM

We have a 6 year old LG WM1814CW that today with no error message only squirts in spits of water than turns the drume a few rotations to the left and then to the right.
Added water manually through the soap dispenser since there was an attempt to start a load of whites. Hopefully I have enough water to dilute the bleach so are clothes arent wasted. changing cycles offered no help or trying just a rinse and spin cylce doen;t chang the action.

there is a noise when the drum turns gears nashing or at least noisy when i put my ear to the machine.
checked FAQ- looks to be the filter thingies. will try that.

SubZero 10+ yrs old 3211-RFD making sounds

04 May 2012 - 11:25 AM

Greetings wise Mastahs-
I have a problem, and was hoping to find a solution. Our Subzero's freezer compartment has warmed up. The power is on, fridge side is fine, but the temp in the freezer is now 45 + F. All is thawed (yuck!). This little bugger began making a intermitent buzzing sound about 2 days ago( like every 2 min). Like a little motor up above (I believe its the compressor) was trying really hard to kick in, but then it stops. We took off the grill, cleaned the whole area as best as possible, and it seemed to recover- for a few hours. Temp dropped to 20F- then overnight, climbed back up and is buzzing again.
Also, the seal, which we replaced last year on it has come apart- probably adding to the stress onthe machine.
I am learning repairing a SZ is cheaper than buying a new one, but still costly.
My questions are:
1-am I right in assuming this is the source of trouble?
2-am I qualified to handle this type of repair- freon and all?
3-where the heck can I get a new compressor, if need be?
4-will this be a situation where I gotta suck it up and get a guy out here?

We gotta move fast, and the only local place who works on my fridge was the same ripoff guy who tried to charge me $500.00 to fix my washer which we fixed for $50.00.
We r in Hartford County in CT- so if you know a guy...just sayin.

thank you!
