So it sounds like no one here has any experience with pipe-locating sensors. If I go online, it seems to be a common tool. Would be nice to know how accurate these are, and how they are used.

Yes, the electric cooktop that is there was probably original - probably 50 years old. You can imagine why we want to get rid of it! Parts simply don't exist anymore. I suspect there never was a gas...

Well, I just told you that I had an oven that was plumbed for both. Behind the oven, it wasn't valved, just plugged. Who says it has to be valved? A plug is more secure than a valve. Not at all clear...

It's not a range. It's a cooktop, and the cooktop is mounted on some cabinets. So I don't have a range to pull away from the wall. You remove one of the drawers in the cabinet under the cooktop, and...

What I am assuming (and I think this is standard in most modern kitchens) is that the place where a stove is going it be is plumbed for both gas and electric. Gives the resident both options. The...

Finding gas line for stove?

So I want to replace my electric cooktop in my ~1960 residential house with gas. Looking under the cooktop, I see all the electric cables, but I don't see a gas line. Now, I *know* a gas line is in...

Yes, I'm aware of the video, and XSleeprs advice about just laying the door down directly instead of carrying it somewhere is very good. I think I still need a second body to make sure it is laid...

OK, Ill pull out the door and inspect the rollers. No, it takes a little more time than a couple of minutes, because I have to find someone to help me manhandle the door. But that's the sensible...

Ah, my mistake. 8 FOOT tall panels. And a "panel" is a "door". So why don't they just say that? Yes, it makes sense that the rollers for an 8 foot door must be beefier than for the standard, which is...

BTW, there are TWO styles of does rollers that Andersen sells. One style is for "8-inch panel". Huh? What does that mean? Those "8-inch panel" ones are slightly more expensive, but their picture...

Well, again, the issue isn't that I don't know how to change the rollers. I do. Looks pretty straightforward. The question is what makes them fail. Wheels and axles actually do pretty much last...

Andersen patio door sticks

My 20-year old Andersen series 400 sliding patio door is taking more force to slide it than it used to take. Runners are clean, and I've played with the roller adjustments. I assume I need to replace...

Yes, this is supposed to be a very quiet system. Now that I look into it, it looks like the power level on the blower fan ramps up and down gradually. That cuts down on the "whump" you get from most...

*That* is handy to know, because that's exactly what's happening. I guess the point is to provide some circulation, without strong breezes that you'd get from the regular speed. I was never told that...

Sorry, I meant to say "When the fan control is set to "ON" I hear the noise from somewhere below that, like in the middle."

OK, thanks. I have a better handle on it now. When I look inside at the main fan (the fist-sized motor) is NOT running. There is something else that sounds like a fan in the box below it. That boxs...

what's going on here? idling fan?

My 3-year old indoor Lennox a/c system works great. But in the last few days of high temps, it's started doing something I don't recognize. In between cooling cycles, when the compressor is off,...
