Posted on January 18th, by Dave P in Uncategorized. No Comments

It is certainly frustrating to deal with a noisy dishwasher and having a professional serviceman to fix the issue can be really expensive. Here is the truth- even for people who do not consider themselves eligible, repairing a noisy dishwasher is not at all difficult.

Dishwashers tend to make noise mainly due to malfunctioning of the circulation pump motor and housing. For instance, you may notice that your dishwasher is making noise when draining or when water circulates; there are high chances that your circulation pump motor needs a replacement.

In addition, you can also experience noises like humming, buzzing, clicking, or any other loud noise; do not panic. You can conveniently troubleshoot the issue yourself without hiring a professional serviceman.

Refrigerator Repair: How to Replace the Water Inlet Valve

Posted on October 26th, by Dave P in Replacement Parts. No Comments

Repairing a water inlet valve of a refrigerator does not require a professional assistance, provided you have some knowledge about the troubleshooting process. So before we go any further, let us first dive into some insights of where the refrigerator water inlet valve is situated and how you can replace it.

The water inlet valve is a device which is operated electronically. It connects your fridge to the household water supply if you possess a water dispenser or an icemaker.

Posted on October 26th, by Dave P in Written Articles. No Comments

Kids get fascinated seeing something turning into a marvel. If it’s a girl, watching momma cook delicious food is super exciting. Mary has the same fad.

Mary is a 13-year-old sweet girl having extreme love for cooking. Although she is quite young to handle the whole cooking stuff, she enjoys doing it to the core, and her parents (John and Susan) allow her to operate things while investigating her activities at regular intervals.

So this is what happened in Mary’s kitchen…

The family had just shifted to their new house. Thanksgiving was a week later, and Mary was as excited as ever to prepare something for the big day.

Cookies, Mother’s Recipe Kept Alive
By Annie and Steve Antonius, Rome

I love spending time in the kitchen and cooking variety of delicacies, but there is something different when it comes to baking. It’s more of my passion than my hobby. I recon when I was in school, after coming back from school just before I used to sit for my homework, my mother would serve fresh cookies for me. Cookies have been an important part of the family since a long time.

After my retirement, I decided to keep myself busy by devoting maximum time into preparing cookies just like my … Read More »

Kitchen Nightmares: Thanksgiving Edition

Posted on December 6th, by Dave P in Replacement Parts, Tips and Tricks. No Comments

Hey everyone! I hope you had a good week and that all your appliances are running nice and smooth.

So here is a holiday that could have ended disastrously. Mike and Kate from Silver Springs Nevada had been married a couple months when they moved into their first house. Thanksgiving was just around the corner and they wanted to break in the new house. They decided to host Thanksgiving. Kate (who had attended culinary school) loved to cook. She would cook all the meals for her and Mike. No matter if it was lasagna or meatloaf or ribs, she loved the oven that came with the house.

Now as you can probably imagine this is where things went horrible wrong. They had a nice Maytag stove but about a week before Thanksgiving the stove displayed a F1 error and it wouldn’t work. … Read More »

Fourth-Down Freak-Out

Posted on November 22nd, by Dave P in Replacement Parts, Tips and Tricks. No Comments

Da Bears, am I right? Okay even if you’re not a Bears fan still read this story.

First off Natalie is a mom who does not care for football… at all. She doesn’t understand it and she doesn’t want to understand it. She and her family live in Downers Grove (a suburb of Chicago, Illinois) so her husband Jeff and her 16 year old son Eric are die hard Bears fans.

It was opening week in the NFL and Eric was supposed to be doing chores as punishment for staying out too late the night before. But, being a typical 16 year old, he neglected his chores and watched the game with his dad. One of his chores was to clean the drawer of the refrigerator that his little sister spilled orange juice all over.

Towards the end of the 4th quarter a … Read More »

Do Children Come in Stainless Steel too?

Posted on September 18th, by Dave P in Tips and Tricks. No Comments

What’s the latest kitchen trend? In the 80’s appliances came in black. In the 90’s it was all about white. And if you have remodeled a kitchen or seen a remodeled kitchen from the 2000’s you’d know it’s all about the stainless steel.

Frank and Lea moved to Oak Hill, Tennessee with their children (oldest to youngest) Mark, Michael, Mathew, and the little Michelle. They (as Lea put it not me) are a very loud and sociable family. This caused them to make friends with the entire neighborhood.

In their new kitchen there were stainless steel appliances. Now, anyone who has stainless steel appliances knows that it is very easy to get finger prints all over them.   Michelle, being 6 years old, loved to touch everything so they had to constantly clean their appliances to keep the kitchen looking nice for their … Read More »

How the Ice Maker Saved a Life!

Posted on September 9th, by Dave P in Written Articles. No Comments

Hey Guys and Gals! It’s been a while since our last post but don’t worry.

Since then we’ve accumulated some pretty great stories.  So want to hear how the ice maker “saved” a life?

A month or two back we received an email from Carol S. from Delhi Ohio. Carol is a stay at home mom with 3 small children. Steven is 7 and the two twins Molly and Samantha are 4.

It was a hot summer day and the Carol was watching the kids as they were playing in the kiddy pool (remember those days?). Steven was very thirsty and wanted water.  He then went inside and Carol didn’t think anything of it. A few minutes went by and Carol heard a crash from inside. She ran into the house and there was Steven standing on the chair up against the refrigerator with the icemaker on the floor in pieces. … Read More »

You Spent How Much on a Television?

Posted on March 18th, by Dave P in Replacement Parts. No Comments

Speaking from a man’s standpoint I always want the biggest and best television. After all, it’s a macho thing. It’s bragging rights. It means being the man who has the TV that everyone wants to watch the big game on. Recently I came home with a 60” Sony Bravia LED TV…and what would a TV like that be without a great surround sound system? So obviously, I bought one of those as well. When I came home from the local consumer electronics store my wife did not share my excitement over my new purchase. All she could say is, “you spent what on that TV & surround sound system?!?!”


Judging by her reaction I knew it might be a problem when I broke the television stand the first week that I had the TV. What was I going to do? The … Read More »

Returning Old To New

Posted on December 1st, by Dave P in Replacement Parts. No Comments

After Don who, who was featured in my previous posting, shared his 15 minutes of fame with some other neighbors I received a Facebook message asking for help with ‘something similar to Don’s issue’. Being the good neighbor that I am I stopped over to see John the next day who promptly invited me in and began to show off his new brand new LG LED TV. After chatting about the joys of new toys for us boys John shared with me that he was really interested in trying to reclaim some of the glory from his old Sony 60XBR950 rear projection TV.  It appears that the new TV was getting more showings of The Real Housewives (of some place or another) as opposed to anything that really interested him and he needed some space of his own.

A Puppy And The Replacement Remote Control

Posted on November 27th, by Dave P in Replacement Parts. No Comments

I was speaking with my neighbor Don over the weekend while he was walking his beautiful chocolate Labrador retriever puppy. During our chat he mentioned that Madison still has not outgrown the chewing of many household items! He then went on to explain that her most recent chewing episodes have centered around items from his study…apparently she chewed the remote control for his Samsung 50” Plasma TV as well as the remote for his Sony Blu-Ray player.  The AC adapter for his Dell laptop (luckily it was unplugged!) also fell victim to Madison and she was even found chewing on a $20 bill!  Don’s main concern was not that his dog was still chewing things but mostly that he was unsure how to control his TV for the Bears game the upcoming Sunday.
