First-World Problems...

icehorror.jpg

I'm not saying it's aliens, but...it's aliens!

Or maybe the ice maker is possessed? Who knows, but the damned thing will sometimes spit out a single cube with nobody near the thing!

We'll probably have to move...

Yesterday got down a 20 foot trunk of a tree, today only got 1/2 of a split trunk, the other I didn't get has a at least 20 foot more branch in a hook and in a maple tree next to it.

28 I never saw the necessity for a refrigerator freezer automatic ice dispenser. For one thing you need plumbing for it to work. I just use trays. I have the extra large trays that will make XL ice cubes.
My FWP is our dishwasher went 5150 in late January. The replacement is taking 6 weeks to arrive. During the interim I'm doing all the dishes by hand and really am finding it to be no big deal. Additionally, my electric bill decreased by a healthy amount. Next thing you know I'll be hanging laundry outside to dry...

40 FWP, truck died today while I was away from the house. Crank no start, probably the fuel pump. 88 bucks to get it towed the 1.2 miles back home. I live 3/4 of a mile from where it will get worked on, but they're not open today so I couldn't just get it dropped on their lot.

It's 17 years old, I get the feeling we're about to enter that stage of a vehicle's life where different things die every other month or so.

50 In the Civil War era, A style of piano was made that was sort of huge. A big box about 6 feet long, four feet from front to back, and 14 inches+/- deep. Four heavy legs held this sucker up. Made of cheap wood and lots of veneer, it only had 38 keys and was difficult to play and nearly impossible to keep tuned. These pianos were not popular. My grandparents had one. No idea why or where they got it. After researching its value as an antique, I found these things are worth nothing unless one finds someone who would take it apart and use the wood for other purposes or someone who wants it to be used as a coffin.
I took it apart and gave the wood to my dad, used the huge cast iron "harp" that held the strings as a yard ornament (coolest wind chime ever!), and kept the legs. Gave one leg to .... Someone, can't remember who, used one with a painted Mexican tray as a side table and the other two are being prepped for duty as plant pot stands.

77 Well, if you really want an answer as to why this is happening, the ice cube is the last one ready to fall into your glass, but is big enough to not fall. It is already out of the freezer, so it starts to very slowly melt. When enough of it melts, it falls down the shoot. Since there is now no one there with a glass, it hits the floor.

82 Gah! Just finished an epic struggle with the spare tire windlass on my Suburban. I had been hearing a clunk in the rear for some time, and it suddenly came to me, "Damn, that spare tire is hanging kind of low." Dug out the jack, and the jack handle and extensions, and took the locking plug out of the windlass tube. The drive end of the extension did not engage the windlass. Face palm moment, "Oh, I remember now. The windlass broke when I had to change a tire, and I welded a half-inch nut on it." Fetched ratchet and long extensions, and a half-inch socket. Did.Not.Fit. Neither did the 9/16, 7/16 or 12 mm. Face palm moment, "Doh! That was the '02 F 150 that had that problem." Linked two jack extensions together, and pushed the square socket end of one into the tube. Bingo! Cranked up the tire, and all is well.

Pried off the key cap on mine. What I hate is the damned Windows keys. What I would like to see is software you could use to define the 3 left-hand bottom row keys as CTRL; all three do the same thing. And make the 3 on the right hand all ALT. Because a mis-strike on CTRL or ALT alone does nothing; you have to depress another key at the same time to get the shortcut. A mis-strike on the damned Windows keys invokes some damn-fool menu, even in Linux.

That wastes cargo space, and should you have a flat when carrying a load, you would have to take off part of the load to get at the spare. The ones on the windlass are always accessible, unless you are axle deep in a bog.

I can't blame this on GM. The windlass and its handle worked as designed. What was missing were operating instructions, which are in the owners manual, which I don't have, as this 'burb was bought as government surplus.

My last three dishwashers have been crummy performers. Plus you can't wash aluminum, knives, vintage carnival glass, plastic, things that don't drain well, or pots with nonstick coating or certain types of handles. That leaves china, stainless steel, and certain types of glass. At that point, I might as well do all the dishes by hand.

See if you can find some handles/pulls with same spacing and hole size requirements and intersperse them so that you've got an even mix. Or several different styles for the "eclectic" look. Not recommended for people with OCD.

148 77 Well, if you really want an answer as to why this is happening, the ice cube is the last one ready to fall into your glass, but is big enough to not fall. It is already out of the freezer, so it starts to very slowly melt. When enough of it melts, it falls down the shoot. Since there is now no one there with a glass, it hits the floor.

I wouldn't bother as the new homeowner will most likely fit the place and remodel it in their own image.

Then interest rates skyrocketed and they ended up selling for far less than they had hoped for. Then the couple who bought it gutted it and remodeled.

Heh. Well, my base cabs, except for the new ones are all salvage faces on cabs of my own building, and they have black-painted brass handles, sort of midway between "plain" and "ornate". I have ONE spare. The little cabs over the range were made from a piece of Goodwill furniture, and they have shiny brass round knobs. I have built (and faced) wall cabs flanking the sink. Have yet to build the doors. Possible solution: put shiny brass round knobs on the four new cabinet doors, and on the cutting board. Strip the black paint off the existing brass handles, and use them on the base cabinets and drawers, and slip in one ringer.

Is this the removal of gender inclusive landmines, or are they sending the trannies out to 'splode themselves?

176 All refer ice makers are failure prone after a month or two

My LG fridge is 6 years old and the ice maker's working great. The secret? Replace the fridge's water filter regularly. (When I didn't, the ice maker stopped and I had to look up how to reset it, which made it happy again)

I think it's removing landmines without misgendering the mines. They usually give their pronouns as "ka" and "boom", but some are different.

186 I replaced our original DW a few months back. Since there are only two of us, we don't create that many dirty dishes. But what I have been doing which I hadn't done before, is to put the pots and pans in there also. They look great when they come out and I don't even rinse the dishes or pans even if the food bits are dried on.

The old one couldn't do that. The new DW is German build. Even has a setting where it will play 'Ericka'.

187 I have to replace the icemaker in our fridge. It's getting overfilled and dumping excess water in the ice bin. Creates a big block of ice that I've got to bust up into smaller pieces about once a day.

Might have to move.

Take off the front cover of the icemaker. There should be a white plastic cylinder with a slotted tip. Insert screwdriver and turn it a half turn clockwise. Replace cover.

191 Pot metal (or monkey metal) is an alloy of low-melting point metals that manufacturers use to make fast, inexpensive castings.

Today I learned!

Posted by: m at February 25, 2024 03:55 PM (o3SCB)

192 ... The term "pot metal" came about because of automobile factories' practice in the early 20th century of gathering up non-ferrous metal scraps from the manufacturing processes and melting them in one pot to form into cast products.

It is everywhere. Your home is full of it. Appliance frames, had drive cases for computers. It's mostly zinc, with maybe 15 to 20 percent other metals. Late 19th - early 20th Centuries, it got a well-deserved bad name because it was garbage metal. They would throw just about any moderately low melting point metal into the pot. The composition was never consistent from batch to batch. Much of it would develop inter-crystalline corrosion, and swell up and crumble. I have seen such failed parts in antique radios, and in door handles etc. for antique cars.

Now you have durable modern alloys like Zamak, which don't have that issue.

buy the closest style you can find in a similar color, and then back every one of them with a diamond shaped plaque of brass so when you look at the kitchen you focus on the brass diamond instead of the mis-matched knobs.

I think you void the dishwasher's warranty when you use it to wash your guests. You should get a pressure washer for that.

Posted by: Kindltot at February 25, 2024 04:12 PM (D7oie)

204 Or you could just get another ice machine/maker.

Posted by: Flywheel at February 25, 2024 04:33 PM (ENR8i)

205 Our last fridge we bought has an ice maker but we didn't hook it up. Chose to avoid that failure point that can ruin floors if the special water line breaks. Ice cube trays work fine. As does putting a bit of water in my water bottles and freezing so I have built in ice.
