  • Our Electrolux Stove is out of commission

    Our EW30EF65GSA suddenly had a major problem over a week ago now. The front right burner, radiant element under a glass top, dual-burner, turned ON but was too hot, like on super HIGH. Turned it off, it was flashing HE as usual and looking settings-wize was OFF, but still burning hot on HIGH and looking full ON. Since […]

  • Fridgidaire Upright Freezer E8 and more

    Our freezer has had problems for a long while now. I finally had enough of it, decided to look deeper into it. Hurray! It’s definite that two things I’ve gotten for it were better for it. Front control panel and the Temperature Defrost gizmo are what I’ve replaced  (I tested the Temp Defrost when it arrived, […]

  • It’s the week of Christmas 2015!

    Less than a week until Christmas means more baking, more cleaning, more, more, more … I made a batch of Snickerdoodles yesterday. I also made up a double batch of Tollhouse Cookies, but didn’t bake them, my daughter did. I want to make a chewy molasses cookie, snowballs (russian tea cakes), and so many more […]

  • Fireplace Update & A/C Forecast

    Our fireplace is still in use, and the part was supposedly ordered, but hasn’t come in yet. It’ll be a couple more weeks of fireplace use, at least. Maybe more. Spring doesn’t look too far away looking at Accuweather data. Then it’ll be back to the A/C to keep pollen to a minimum and hope […]

  • Fireplace

    We had our chimney swept and the guy was impressed with the lack of … saying we must burn good stuff. Yes. Hardwood, as well Seasoned as can be. Our back panel will be replaced, the rest of it can get by for another couple of years. He said it’s safe to use it as […]

  • A/C problem fixed

    In June 2011 new system installed in house. 3 Zones, digitally controlled. We suffered all year, it didn’t work well, it was too humid, uncomfortable and had frozen outside pipes often. Tweaked to death, over winter nothing happened. Spring, needed A/C and voila, same problems. Guy came out and FINALLY after hours of tinkering around […]

  • A/C Sensor Bad

    A/C guy was here yesterday. He checked everything and finally told us “it’s this sensing module that is bad” The basic long and short of it is, I don’t really know why we need it, guess it’s a fine tuner, making everything work well no matter what temps you put in or something. He said […]

  • A/C Guy is supposed to be here on Thursday

    Don’t know what he can do, hope something. Just checked again, everything going down by 1, but … outside, super thick frost on the pipes going into the unit, starting again. Now off. I’ve already had it, but now I’ve had it.

  • A/C Problems Still

    Our A/C is still very problematic. We tried something different last night, and it seemed to work, and just now I did it again and I’ll see if it changes things. It was just about 12 hours between doing it the first time and when things started going south again decidedly so. We took the […]

  • Winter Begins

    Winter has begun fully for us this week. It’s not “officially Winter” but the “season is here. Yesterday it snow flurried for hours, but no accumulation. Today it’s very cold, still below freezing, reaching that mark maybe, but probably not quite. It’s 31.6 degrees F. on my front porch digital temperature thing, it’s connected wirelessly […]

  • Washer Post from Past

    I love it when old posts are relevant to what I need to do: LG FL Washer – 2277 – OE error Not that my washer is throwing an error, it’s just that I think I need to “spin only” cycle after not having done that for a long time. It would get things more […]
