Here is hopefully a better picture. Again, I have white weather stripping stuck on the frame, but even that's not enough. You can see the black seal is curled up, not sealed to the frame, and you can...

Here are bigger versions of the pictures from earlier. I'm not sure if you can see it well; it doesn't help that the seal and the frame are both black. I'll see if using a real camera (vs my phone)...

Thanks, everyone, the reason I put in the quoted costs is because I felt like they were way too high, and you guys have confirmed it for me.

I just had another company come out to quote me, and...

Hello,

I'd like some advice on whether it would be better to replace my current central AC and furnace combo with a newer, more efficient model, or to switch to mini-split/ductless units. Our...

Haha, actually, I think that's the right explanation, I'm just wondering whether I need to worry about it. Unless someone tells me it's going to cause bigger problems if I don't deal with it, I'm...

At the very back of the spout, where it flares out and meets the wall, there's a little hole cut out of the metal, I think precisely to allow water to drain out into the tub should there be an...

Went to a plumbing supply store and got a 6.5" nipple with a .25" flange and now everything fits.

I've cranked the spout as tightly as I can with a 24" pipe wrench and some water still trickles...

I couldn't find a 6.5" nipple, the longest I saw was the 6" one I already have. I bought a female-female adapter (didn't see any female-male adapters, do those exist?) and a close nipple. Problem is,...

Finally got around to doing this and you were exactly right, the drain hole, pan, and the lowest basket were all completely plated and encased in ice. Thank you very much for the help!

That's a good idea. I have a dremel already, so I guess it'd be a good excuse to try out the grinding attachment. The tile hole is actually fairly big, just not the dry wall beneath the tile, so if...

Thanks for the link. I've been doing some reading on clogged lines and many of the websites (none specific to my model fridge) talk about going from either the front or the back of the fridge, where...

Thanks, but unfortunately, the hole is literally just big enough for the pipe. I have no idea how they did it, but it's perfectly shaped and just clears the pipe on all sides. I think I've gone about...

Whirlpool GD5THG side-by-side fridge & freezer leaking internally and externally

Fridge was left by previous home owners. They had mentioned there was a possible problem with the ice maker but didn't give any other details.

I was able to tighten it in and the connection seems good. I didn't want to over-torque it, though, especially since I'm using a 24" pipe wrench, so I didn't tighten too much. Will it be immediately...

So what tool...
