From my understanding, then it would be wise to use a 15A breaker on this circuit. I'm assuming this is a dedicated circuit too.


The outlet is not the fuse or the breaker, so as long as everything is rated it'll be fine. Going larger on wiring or outlets is only insurance, it cannot hurt a thing. The breaker or fuse is what is limiting the circuit's capacity as is desired. You would never want the wiring to be the weakest link. It is the same with doing a job to code, code is the ...


The Frigidaire FRT22IRSH has a conventional ice maker. The only thing which could cause the described symptoms is if the ice freezing cycle terminates prematurely. That could be caused by poor refrigeration (like if the temperature is not set cold enough), but could also be caused by a defect in the ice maker's timer and/or sensing. Start by checking the ...


For a latex paint (water soluble) I added water and actually used a hand blender for 3-4 minutes, the result was an even, smooth paint. The paint was completely granulated before. Whether or not it stays on the wood will be determined in a couple of years... EDIT: The paint had frozen completely at least twice!


Chlorodifluoromethane, also known as R22 refrigerant has a boiling point of -40°F at 0 psi. As you increase the pressure of the refrigerant, the boiling point also increases. At 68.5 psi, the boiling point of R22 is 40°F. In a normally functioning system, the refrigerant is sent into the evaporator at about 55-65 psi. Which means that the boiling ...


Freezers aren't really designed to freeze things, they're designed to keep things frozen. To change one pound of 32°F ice to 31°F ice, requires the removal of .5 BTUs. To change one pound of 32°F water, to 32°F ice, requires 144 BTUs. Therefore, it requires far less energy to keep an item frozen, than it does to freeze the item in the first ...


15-20 degrees isn't cold enough, believe it or not :) There needs to be a significant temperature difference to rapidly draw the heat out of the items you want to freeze. For example, current Whirlpool refrigerator/freezer units come preset to 0-degrees (F, not C) for the freezer and 37-degrees (F) for the fridge. According to this document, the freezer ...
