I own my home. Your landlord should get me a new dishwasher. And a new stove.

The ironic part is that I'm in the market for a dishwasher & stove (and much to IGs dismay, electric is all we can have)

Zoning laws prohibit the installation of a propane tank where you are?

I don't hink , we probably could go that route. I'd rather not right now, for costs. We have a gas line running on the street, but I need 3 major appliences for them to run the line. Someday, as my furnace ages, I'll consider that, but I'd rather not go to propane tank route at this time.

why don't you borrow (or buy and return within 30 days) three appliances then only keep the one you want.

Well, son of a god flicking bitch!!!

The chest freezer quit again. But the forking pissed-off point is that we didn't

notice it for days. Fuck! Fuck! Sucky Fuck!

Everything in there had to be tossed; and it has.

Sure enough it was the "timer" sticking again.

I have that motherfucker in front of me right now and I'm going to order a new

one from as soon as I log off.

"hecho in mexico* "oh, joy of joys"

 Fucking shit! I lost quite a buttload of genuine Louisiana Andouille sausage. *sigh*

True. But there's not really room in the house for them. We keep those extra guys in a covered

annex built against the south wall of the garage. It's just off the patio. It used to be a washroom

so all the necessary wiring/circuts were already there.

So I got home yesterday and my mom asnwers the door and the first thing she says is "the washer's dead."

And I'm thinking yeah right let's see the thing... go back to the laundry room pull the start switch, and am greeted with a ratcheting sound from underneath that sounded like hell.

Went on this repair site... pulled the pump off and the motor and this little plastic piece is broken that transfers power from the motor to the transmission. new one here Wednesday...

A good example of why you always spend a lot of money for good tools.
Yesterday I decided that the tree next to my driveway that has branches sticking over it (such that it scratches the car every time I drive by it) had to go.
Or rather, at least the branches hanging over the driveway had to go.
So I thought I'd pull out my handy dandy hedge trimmer. The one that had been sitting in my shed for at least 2 years untouched.
So I took it out, primed the gas line, opened the choke and pulled. And it was a tough pull. Very gummy. Not happy at all. So I pulled a bunch more times and it loosened up a bit.
Went to garage, got more fresh gas/oil put it in, flushed the gas line
a bunch more times.
Pulled a bunch more times. A bit smoother, but no go.
So I let it sit a while while I changed the oil in my car.
Went back to it, opened the choke, pulled a few more times, and voila!
After 2 years, it took less than 10 minutes and nothing special to get it started.
I'm confident that if I had bought some search piece of shit it would have never started again.

Not much to be proud of today. I did get two of the outdoor faucets wrapped tight for the winter.

Woohoo (sarcastically) only 12 more to go. It's not such a big chore, but it does have to be done.

Our outdoor faucets aren't poking out of the side of the house; they pop up all over the place around

the property. Every one of them sticks up at least 10" above ground. But I'm just trying to get a head

start as that Arctic air mass is expected to blow over us Wed/Thur and drop tihngs into the 20s up here

in the hills in the early morning hours. Nothing like waking up to a burst pipe to brighten your day! :^)

my snowblower fucking rocks.
I did 4 driveways in like 45 minutes.

not the best $700 I ever spent, but certainly up there.

So I took mr. snowblower out agan today. did the same four driveways as the other day, and while putting it away, it caught the cable line.
I don't have cable, but I used to so the wire was apparently laying on the ground.
Not only did it pop a shear bolt, but it actually managed to pull the augur axle out of it's mounting.
The scooper shroud is a huge piece of sheet metal, and it doesn't budge, but apparently it did enough to let the axel out.
All is fixed now. Four shear bolts left.

My snowblower had a broken shear bolt when I took it out on Friday morning, which is odd considering that I did a full test at the beginning of the season.

Aahz claimed responsibility.

It is Aahz's fault, but were it me, I'd be all over the cable company's ass for whatever the cost would be to have to fix it.

So I've got this leafblower I ignore on a regular basis.
Well this year it didn't start up so nicely.
So I did the usual carb cleaner in the intake.
Now it runs but only when the choke is closed. As soon as I open the choke it stalls.
if I on-off-on-off the throttle a lot while I open the choke a little I can get it to spin up a little more before it stalls.
This happened once before and I can't for the life of me remember how I fixed it.
Somebody suggested there are two jets in the carb, one for low idle, one for full speed and the latter is clogged.
Okay, so I took the thumb sized carb off and soaked it in carb cleaner for a few hours.
Learned another lesson that I had forgotten: carb cleaner tends to eat or in some way compromise the material used in the fuel flush bumb.
It didn't break, but now the walls are a lot thinner so I have to be careful when I pump it.
Doesn't run any better after the soaking though.
Any suggestions? I found a ton of articles on the subject, that all yield nothing useful. Did you try soaking it? Did you try carb cleaner in the intake? Take it to the shop.
What's the shop going to do that I can't?

Thoughts? Suggestions?

Tha's what I don't get about engines: you have fuel, spark and air and voila, it's pretty much GOT to work. So why is it when you give it more air does it stall?

could it be the gas in the oil/gas mix evaporated too much? It doesn't smoke when it runs, and I put in more gas anyway....
