    Best answer: Clean out the coils and compressor area in your fridge .That will quiet it down Ya heard of dust bunnies ..right .Well under your fridge where the compressor and fan are mounted Dust people build up in there That lint and whatever gets in there also cause heat and make the compressor work much harder to cool the contents of the fridge .Cleaning should be one at least twice a year and more if you have pets.Also the cooling fan that blows cool air over the compressor may have something thats hitting the blades Maybe you dont need a new fridge Usually the noise is easily identified when cleaning it out But Kenmore ,Amana,LG ,most are good Stay away from the cheap unfamiliar brands I tried two different cheapies .Both are resting at the recycler now less than a year for each one .Now i got basic side by side brand new no camera ,no freaking digital read out .It just cools ,and does a good quiet job of that too . that's my opinion, Good luck....A Kenmore fridge is what i got and even though sears is on its way out I know it will last a while since its just a fridge and not a streaming device with facebook live button .Its just a basic one is what i got

  • How to I join two copper pipes where one had expanded and the sleeve doesn't fit? They're both 1/2 inch. one expanded over winter.?

    Best answer: over at the home improvement store, you look for a non metallic sleeve that clamps onto both sides. Tell the assistant in plumbing what you're trying to do.

    Best answer: over at the home improvement store, you look for a non metallic sleeve that clamps onto both sides. Tell the assistant in plumbing what you're trying to do.

    This solution is NOT for potable [drinking] water, only for washing/gardening water.

    The better solution is to replace all of the "expanded" pipe -- what happened is water inside the pipe froze and enlarged the pipe -- this inherently makes it brittle and subject to leaking at every join [plus in the middle].

    When you do this replacement, be sure to include a shutoff at the edge of the warmed area [preferably inside the warm area but we can't always get what we want] and drain. This line needs to be turned off and drained to prepare for future winters.

    This ac was not used much for awhile and I still kinda New since we bought it last summer. The issue is that it will blow air and then stop and then start blowing air again. It keeps doing this over and over. The whole time it never says that it turns off. I have googled and looked around but I can not find the answer. Also I ended up plugging it into the wall plug instead of an extension cord to see if that works but still the same result. Can anyone help? It s really irritating

  • How to have control over heating in individual rooms?

    Best answer: Typical radiant baseboard heating systems are divided into zones, and each zone has its own supply pipes and its own thermostat which controls a valve that opens and closes to allow the water to flow or not.

    To include more than one zone on a floor, to control specific room(s), could be done, but is complicated. it would be much easier to do it as a building was being built than to add it on later.

    What I would envision is a pipe going totally around the perimeter of the building. At each room, there would be a valve that fed into the pipe that would go through the room, reconnecting to the main pipe with a junction.

    Ideally, perhaps, the supply pipe could be under the floor with the diversion valves connecting to a pipe going through the floor into the room above. T the point where that pipe exits the room and comes back through the floor, it would connect back with the main supply with a simple T or Y joint.

    The valve would need to be able to allow the water to either just flow through, or to redirect ALL of the water from the main line into the separate room line. That valve would be controlled by the thermostat for that room, and the valve would need to connect to the main pump. If the pump was not turned on, it would get energized when the valve was opened.

    For however many rooms there were on that level, if none of them were calling for heat, then the pump would be off and there would be no water flow. As soon as one thermostat calls for heat, the associated valve opens, causing the pump to turn on. That will pump water through the main pipe, with a diversion through the one room needing heat.

    If another room thermostat calls for heat, then the valve for that room opens and shunts the already flowing water into that room as well. Since the pump would already be running, the second valve opening would have no effect on the pump. However, it would need to be able to keep the pump running if the thermostat in the first room stops calling for heat and closes its valve.

    .... and so on for any other room that called for heat.

    I am not a heating system installer, but we have a 2 zone hot water baseboard system in our house, and I watched the contractor put it in. Conversations with him over the two weeks or so that it required were quite enlightening.

    I <<think>> something like that would work.
